He also shares that he got a message from God to pop the question to the fellow Pastor.

"Sometimes your blessing will be right in front of your eyes and you don't even know," said Bryant. "You don't even know what God's got for you... an amazingly beautiful woman, amazingly brilliant woman. The Lord said to me, 'You big dummy, what are you waiting on?' And I am so grateful to God that she has consented to be my wife."

He continued,

"I can't tell you how happy I am, how happy my family is, how happy my children are and I hope my church is happy for me."

Jamal Bryant And Gizelle Bryant Reconciled, But Called It Quits In 2021
If you recall, Jamal and Gizelle Bryant tried to mend their relationship after divorcing in 2009. In 2019 Gizelle revealed that she and her ex-husband were back "dating" but things fizzled in 2020.

Their split came after former Real Housewife of Potomac Monique Samuels brought out a binder at the #RHOP season 5 reunion and accused Gizelle and Jamal of faking their relationship. She alleged that she had text messages from Jamal's real girlfriend, a fellow Pastor who sent her texts and pictures of the man of God in her bed and even read out texts of the Pastor allegedly downplaying his relationship with Gizelle.

Gizelle was adamant that the viral moment did not cause her Jamal Bryant breakup and instead said it "brought them closer" before they ultimately split due to the pandemic.

"Listen, we were a victim of the pandemic," she revealed to E! News. "I don't think any long-distance relationship can really withstand not see seeing each other. But is he still in my life, is he still one of my best friends? Absolutely."


Congrats to Jamal Bryant and Karri Turner!

Tamar Braxton's On-Again, Off-Again Boo Jeremy 'JR' Robinson Colonel Sanders Shades His (Former?) Fi

Tamar Braxton wants to keep her relationship private, but her on-again, off-again partner doesn't seem to be on the same page.

"I'll be Colonel Sanders and give you some chicken to eat with my story... Keep poking the bear!" warned the disgruntled lawyer.


Source: Paras Griffin / Getty

Last week, the singer and reality TV star sat down for a recorded live conversation from Carlos King's "Reality with The King" tour.

During the interview, King asked a ton of questions about her engagement to Jeremy "JR" Robinson, also pointing out the fact that many fans accused Braxton of hiding her engagement ring.

"I'm not hiding anything," Braxton fired back, according to PEOPLE. "The truth of the matter is JR and I decided we would keep our relationships completely private. No matter what the status is, we decided we would keep it private from everyone."

She went on to say that she decided to keep her love life private after seeing Ashanti and Nelly rekindling their romance after all these years, insisting, "We don't know nothing about it...And here they are living happily ever after with no drama and no interference."

Tamar continued, "One day, I would love to have that life."

Despite her insistence on keeping things quiet, Robinson clearly wants a chance to speak his peace.

A few days after Braxton's Carlos King interview, JR took to his Instagram Story with some cryptic messages seemingly aimed at both his fiancée and King. In particular, he seemingly took issue with King referring to him as "Colonel Sanders."

"You're in a relationship, you're engaged," said Carlos during the chat while Tamar said to the crowd; "Y'all do not like this man!" with a laugh.

Carlos went on to say;

"Let's talk about Colonel Sanders, honey. When I look at him I sometimes crave a two-piece chicken." "He do not look like that," responded Tamar.

A post shared by Carlos King (@thecarlosking_)

"Truth is - they are not ready for me to tell my side of the story," the attorney began in his quickly-deleted posts, according to Ice Cream Convos. "I keep choosing grace. But, I can only be thrown under the bus and not defended for so much longer. I'll be Colonel Sanders and give you some chicken to eat with my story... Keep poking the bear!"

Robinson continued,

"A man can only take so much. I always want to protect - even when we aren't together, but stop allowing indirects to throw me under the bus. Your shade creates more uncertainty and your people thrive on stating what you never say. I'm too graceful and that's coming to an end. Thanks CK."

After alluding to the fact that he always wants to protect Tamar, JR went on with more harsh words for King.

"Apologies mean nothing when you come for my foundation," he continued. "You know the truth but want to kiki - well, I guess the exclusive has to come out.Tired of protecting people and getting s- on. Their hoe phase was during my in love phase. Flowers and billboards don't mean s- when you have had your heart broken."

Despite seemingly being ready to release receipts, Jeremy shared on Monday that he's taking the high road.

"Thank you! I appreciate all the love and support," he wrote on his InstaStory. "I was triggered and shouldn't have responded. Back to thinking, speaking and feeling all things positive."

Darien Harris: Chicago Black Man Freed From Prison After 12 Years For False Murder Conviction, Feder

Source: Vadym Plysiuk / Getty

Black people being railroaded in the criminal justice system is nothing new but fortunately, these days, people are working hard to free as many of the falsely convicted as they can.

Darien Harris of Chicago was the unfortunate victim of the aforementioned railroading at the tender age of 18 when he was sentenced to 76 years in prison after his 2014 murder conviction for a shooting that took place at a South Side gas station in 2011.

According to an AP News report, part of the reason Harris was found guilty was because of the testimony of a "witness" who identified him as the shooter. The Exoneration Project (TEP) was able to prove that the witness had advanced glaucoma and had lied about eyesight problems. After serving almost 13 years in prison, Darien Harris finally came home at the age of 30.

Since 2009, TEP has helped over 200 falsely convicted persons, according to AP News and 12 of those were in Chicago's notoriously corrupt Cook County.

Another man has been exonerated after being convicted of murder! Darien Harris served 12.5 years in a Chicago prison before prosecutors decided to drop his charges after a key witness turned out to be legally blind. Christmas came early for Harris and his family! ???? pic.twitter.com/15XyxBU39b

— Ben Crump (@AttorneyCrump) December 22, 2023

Additional reporting by the Chicago Tribune states that Harris has filed a federal lawsuit against the city of Chicago and several police officers involved with his case.

"The federal complaint alleges Harris' conviction was the result of "egregious misconduct" by police who "fabricated evidence, including false witness statements and identifications through such tactics as coercion, threats, fact-feeding, and promises of leniency." It argues Harris' wrongful conviction was not "an isolated incident" but rather "part of patterns and practices of systemic police misconduct" at Area 2 headquarters," reports the Tribune. 

Harris told the Tribune that his life is in shambles as he struggles to move forward despite being robbed of over a decade of his life to accomplish his goals and live his dreams.

"I don't have any financial help. I'm still (treated like) a felon so I can't get a good job. It's hard for me to get into school," he said. "I've been so lost. ... I feel like they took a piece of me that is hard for me to get back."

It was not noted how much compensation Harris is seeking, but we reckon that it is a very substantial number that can help him leap the hurdles that have been put in his path by the insidious murder conviction.

We will provide updates and additional information as it becomes available.

Steph & Ayesha Curry Welcome Baby No. 4, Caius Chai Curry

Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry and his wife, Ayesha Curry, have welcomed their fourth child together!

Source: Miikka Skaffari / Getty

The happy couple took to Instagram Sunday, May 26, to announce the birth of their fourth child, a baby boy.

The newborn, named Caius Chai Curry, was born a couple of weeks prior on May 11, coming earlier than expected but still "doing great."

"Our sweet baby boy decided to make an early arrival," Steph began in his Instagram caption. "He's doing great and we are finally settling in at home as a family of 6! So grateful!"

Along with a black and white photo of him holding onto his newborn's hand, he concluded the caption with: "Caius Chai 5/11/24."

A post shared by Wardell Curry (@stephencurry30)

Ayesha Curry first announced that she was pregnant back in March when she graced the cover of her magazine, Sweet July. At the time, the former Food Network host revealed that she and her husband thought their family was complete with their three children-Riley Elizabeth, 11, Ryan Carson, 8, and Canon W. Jack, 5-but eventually agreed "somebody was missing."

"For me, the decision came from always finding myself looking around and feeling like somebody was missing," Ayesha wrote in her Sweet July announcement essay. "I would load up the car and think, 'Oh, I forgot something.' But nobody was forgotten. It started to turn my brain a little bit. Maybe somebody was missing. So we set out on this journey, knowing that this would complete our family."

A post shared by Ayesha Curry (@ayeshacurry)

She also opened up about what it's like being pregnant in her 30s, revealing "there's all this paperwork referring to the experience as a 'geriatric pregnancy' and all the concerns that come along with that."

"Many women in their 30s and 40s are going through this for the first time, and being told you're 'old' feels alarming and wild." Ayesha wrote at the time. "I think the narrative needs to be shifted a little bit."


Congrats to the happy couple on their latest addition!

Rich Paul Reveals Bronny James 'Absolutely' Will Not Sign A Two-Way Contract

Source: Thearon W. Henderson/Allen Berezovsky/ Getty / Thearon W. Henderson/Allen Berezovsky/ Getty

Ahead of the NBA Draft, super-agent Rich Paul reveals Bronny James will not sign a two-way contract for any team.

We are just weeks away from the NBA Draft and all eyes will be on Bronny James.

LeBron James still dreams of playing with his sons, and rumors are swirling that he might pack his bags from the Lakers and follow Bronny to his new team. Super-agent Rich Paul now represents both LeBron and Bronny, and he's opening up about the father-son duo's future.


According to Bleacher Report, the Clutch Sports CEO revealed a shocking condition for drafting Bronny during a lengthy interview with journalist Chris Haynes.

Two-way contracts pay players one salary for playing in the NBA and with the G-league affiliates, so if a team thinks they can pull a fast one by putting Bronny in the G-league to push ticket sales, they have to think again.

When Haynes asked about rumors the eldest James son wouldn't sign any two-way contracts, Rich Paul said it was true.

"Yes, that's absolutely true," Paul told Chris Haynes. "Teams know that. I'm not doing that."

Haynes then asked Paul about where Bronny could get drafted.

"Bronny's range has been all over. Some teams think he goes 20 to 40, some say 30-50, and some teams think he'll go undrafted. It just takes one team. This is something I do every year during the draft process. This is not Bronny-centric. He's a part of our draft class. I have to try to help find the right fit for all my guys as well as the right deal. So that's how I'm looking at it," said Paul.

Where do YOU think Bronny James will end up?

Nat Geo & Hulu's Emmy-Winning Docuseries Franchise Continues With Chilling 'Cult Massacre: One Day I

Source: Nat Geo/Hulu

National Geographic and Hulu are back with Cult Massacre: One Day In Jonestown which tells the story of an "idealistic religious organization" led by the infamous Jim Jones who set out to establish a "utopian community" in Guyana.

What began as a "peaceful movement seeking social justice" ultimately spiraled into a mass casualty event that left 918 dead.

Told by survivors and eyewitnesses, along with rare footage and recordings of Jones, the chilling series takes a deep-dive into the harrowing hours leading up to one of America's darkest chapters.

Check out the trailer below:

The third installment in Nat Geo and Hulu's Emmy-winning One Day In America series features first-person accounts from former Peoples Temple members, former Washington Post foreign correspondent Charles Krause, former Special Ops Air Force Sgt. David Netterville (who was among the first of three U.S. service members to enter Jonestown in the immediate aftermath of the tragedy and has never spoken about his experience for a documentary before), and Jim Jones' son Stephan Jones.

View this post on Instagram

A post shared by National Geographic TV (@natgeotv)

Each episode focuses on the hours that led up to the shocking events of Nov. 18, 1978.

The wheels of Jim Jones' twisted machination start turning in episode 1 (The Promised Land) set in tumultuous 1970s America where the charismatic church leader preaches social justice to his growing, diverse congregation.

To escape the inequities of the U.S., he founds Jonestown-a utopian commune in the Guyanese jungle-as shocking rumors of abuse make their way to California's Rep. Ryan and reporters. Within 24 hours of visiting, they discover their presence is unwelcome.

The 3-part series from Emmy-winning 72 Films' executive producers David Glover and Mark Raphael, BAFTA-winning director Marian Mohamed, along with Oscar-winning filmmakers Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin, premieres June 17 on Hulu and Aug. 14 on National Geographic.
