Immediately after their huge win in the National Championship game, the LSU Tigers were back in their locker room celebrating some of their success. Former Tigers star Odell Beckham Jr was a part of the festivities and made a lot of it about himself. OBJ was seen giving money to players while also smacking the butt of a police officer, something he now has a warrant for. It's been a weird time for the Tigers as now, the school is under investigation for Beckham's bizarre stunt.
Former NFL star Shannon Sharpe isn't having any of Beckham's antics and recently spoke out about them on Undisputed. Sharpe knows how much that win meant to some of the players and felt as though OBJ took their shine away when realistically, he should have stood back and let them enjoy the win.
"I'm disappointed in Odell making himself a part of the story, putting his team and players in harm's way," Sharpe said. "Why do that? This was their moment, this was not about you Odell."
It remains to be seen what will happen to Odell in this situation. Not to mention, the players who he gave money to could be subject to some harsh penalties. Be sure to stay tuned as we will bring you the latest on this story.
Stephen A. Smith Goes Scorched Earth On Kyrie Irving After Nets Loss
Smith almost lost his voice.
Kyrie Irving has always been incredibly vocal about his teammates and whether or not the people around him are good enough to win. During his stint in Boston, Irving was constantly criticized for being too vocal and alienating his team. After losing to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night, Irving was subjected to even more criticism as he began to make bold statements about the status of his team. Irving claims the Nets still need more pieces in order to be better. Many would say KD is all they need but Kyrie meant the team needs more on top of Kevin Durant.
Stephen A. Smith wasn't having it with Kyrie this morning. The First Take host went on a lengthy rant about Irving and how he always seems to bring up these issues when they don't matter. In fact, Smith almost lost his voice as Max Kellerman tried to calm him down.
Smith went on to praise Kenny Atkinson who has been the backbone of this Nets team. Despite a depleted roster, Atkinson has coached the team to a record good enough to make the Eastern Conference playoffs with. For now, the team is far from being a contender although they certainly have a lot going on for them.
Do you think Smith is right for criticizing Kyrie or is he blowing his comments out of proportion?
Yung Joc Talks Tatooing Fiancé’s Name On The Side Of His Genitals
Details. He shared all of the details.
The “HBIC” has returned with another season of her hit VH1 webseries Brunch with Tiffany.

The first person to share a table with the host is Joc who recently made headlines over his latest side hustle. Prior to his Pull Up N Go driver revelation, the rapper reunited with his Scared Famous castmate and revisited some memories about living in a house together. Tiffany admitted that she slid in Joc and Safaree Samuels’s beds because she was scared, but it was a completely innocent move.
The pair discussed how Safaree’s fit physique caused Joc to get back into the gym and what led to Tiffany deciding to get a breast reduction. The very-engaged Yung Joc was careful with his words throughout the conversation because Pollard can’t help but do her fair share of flirting… just look at Joc’s face when she asks him how he thinks she would “measure up” in the Cucumber Challenge.
Meanwhile, Joc bragged on his fiancé Kendra and why he decided to get her name tattooed on the side of his penis. The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star went into detail of his “tingling” experience and why he felt that it was necessary to, for lack of better words, mark his territory. Tiffany was visibly surprised to hear about Joc’s latest bit of ink, so check out that story in full below.
Dame Dash Suing WeTV For Requiring Son To Drink Alcohol For "GUHH" Ratings: Report
Boogie Dash’s struggles with addiction were played out on reality TV.
Despite the drama that has encircled his family, Damon “Boogie” Dash II is doing quite well. Reality television fans watched on previous seasons of Growing Up Hip Hop how the 28-year-old struggled with substance abuse, but since going to rehab, Boogie has been committed to his sobriety. His addictions caused a rift in his personal relationships, especially with his father Dame Dash, and the world watched as it all unraveled in front of WeTV cameras.
However, in this recent season, a renewed Boogie has returned, and while a sober take of the younger Dash may not make for salacious television, fans are thrilled to see a happier, healthier version of the reality star. Dame, however, is still reeling from Boogie’s less than favorable moments on Growing Up Hip Hop, and according to a report by TMZ, Dame’s taking the network to court.
The outlet states that Dame accuses WeTV of making it a requirement for Boogie to drink alcohol in order to appear on the series even though they allegedly made a verbal agreement with Dame that they wouldn’t give his son anything. TMZ reports that Dame has claimed his family “suffered emotional distress as a result of We TV’s insistence that Boogie imbibes on the show.”
Additionally, Dame accuses WeTV of stiffing him because he says he has yet to be paid “for his work on the show.” Due to his reported court cases with his exes and the mothers of his children, Rachel Roy and Cindy Morales, and his alleged financial troubles, monies he would make from the network would skip Dame and head to his creditors. However, it’s reported that WeTV should be writing a check to his company, Poppington, and not to Dame himself.
Eddie Murphy Was Stealing Hubcaps & Close To Getting Fired His 1st Year With "SNL"
The comedian recounts so funny moments with the series who gave him his first real chance.
Ratings went through the roof when Eddie Murphy made his triumphant return to Saturday Night Live after 30 years away from the show. The series helped shape the comedian’s career into what it is today, and when he made his way back to the stage, Murphy revived some of his beloved SNL characters that have gone down in television history.

He also sat down with the producers for Stories From the Show: An SNL Series where he chatted one-on-one about his hilarious history with the long-running program. Murphy admitted that for the first year he was on SNL, he was still living at home. After his first appearance, he was so excited that he didn’t even take his makeup off while riding public transportation back to his house. He thought that everyone would recognize him. “No one knew,” he said with a smile. “I probably looked like a very strange young fellow.”
Murphy said that everyone wanted to be on SNL and during his audition, he was told to make the talent coordinator laugh. “I did Muhammad Ali and I did Bill Cosby,” but Murphy failed to bring in even a chuckle. “A couple weeks later, they called me.” Both his Ali and Cosby impressions would make it to the small screen.
Although he took flack for being a new face within the cast, Eddie said he was just a 19-year-old happy to be on TV. “I would still steal,” he admitted, sharing a story of how someone stole his hubcaps off of his car, so he just stole someone else’s hubcaps to replace them. As popular as the show was, critics still weren’t feeling the new members, so the show’s head writer at the time fired everyone except for Murphy and one other person. The only reason the comedian was able to keep his job was that the head writer thought Murphy ate real dog food on the show. Murphy’s not that crazy; it was only hash.
Watch Murphy’s funny walk down Saturday Night Live memory lane below.
Steve Harvey Says He’s "Happy" For Kelly Clarkson After NBC Replaced His Talk Show With Hers
Steve has no bitterness towards his replacement.
Steve Harvey told Ellen during an appearance on her show on Monday that he does not hold any grudges against his NBC time slot replacement, Kelly Clarkson. After NBC canceled Steve’s daytime talk show, Steve, in May of last year and replaced its time slot with Kelly’s new show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, some might wonder if the seasoned host would be resentful towards Kelly, who has never had her own show before. However, Steve reveals that he has no negative feelings about the whole situation, mostly because he already found a new home for the show on Facebook Watch.
“I’m back on TV, you know,” he shared about the renamed program, now titled STEVE on Watch. “Everybody thought I was gone. But I’m happy for people. You know, I’m a person of faith, so when a door closes for me, I just walk up the hall. It’s more doors! You’ve just got to keep going up the hall…So I open other doors and I’m back on TV and I’m happy for everybody. I like Kelly Clarkson. I’m happy for her.” Steve continued these sentiments by sharing a funny exchange between himself and his friend. “One of my friends said, ‘Man, that’s really big of you to be happy for somebody who replaced your show,'” he shared. “I said, ‘No, I’m happy for her.’ He said, ‘So you watch [her show]?’ I said, ‘I ain’t that happy!’” Steve goes on to call Kelly, whose show was recently renewed for a second season, “cool people,” acknowledging that she had no say in replacing him anyway. Steve also discussed a recent viral video posted by his son that showed Steve grooming his famous moustache as well as his recent trip to Africa.
Joseline Hernandez Returns To "Love & Hip Hop" Just To Savagely Drag Premadonna
Never fails to drag creatively.
Joseline Hernandez announced in December that she'd be joining the ranks of the Love & Hip: Miami cast for its third season. The Puerto Rican Princess got her start on the Atlanta instalment of Love & Hip Hop before leaving the reality TV franchise years ago. However, after she made the briefest of appearances in the trailer for the new season, fans were even more disappointed when she was virtually absent from the premiere, which aired last week. However, Joseline made her highly anticipated return to the show in the second episode, and claimed that she's grown from the chaotic person we remember.
This proved to be complete bullsh*t when she immediately went back to her old ways, stirring up drama with a former nemesis. Joseline and Premadonna had been beefing on social media for a minute, and their issues followed them onto the show.
Joseline refers to Premadonna as "Prema-Piglet," and later compares her build to that of a fridge. Her always entertaining insults had viewers dying on Twitter.
Wendy Williams Under Fire For Mocking Joaquin Phoenix’s Cleft Palate
A lot of people aren't feeling Wendy Williams' comments about Joaquin Phoenix’s cleft palate.
Wendy Williams is catching some heat for making comments about Joaquin Phoenix's cleft palate on a recent episode of her daytime television talk show, The Wendy Williams Show. This particular episode aired on Jan. 7 during Wendy's 'Hot Topics' segment where she came to Beyonce's defense for refusing to stand during the announcement of Phoenix's Golden Globes Best Actor Award acceptance speech.
In the segment, Williams jokingly teases Phoenix about his condition stating, "When he shaves off his mustache he’s got a hairline fracture,” she said. “He’s got one of those — what do you call it? Cleft lip, cleft palate."
Williams followed up her comment by hooking her finger over her top lip in order to imitate the somewhat common birth defect. Now, nearly a week later, fans and activists are making an uproar about Williams' taunting comments that affect children around the globe.
British celebrity, Carol Vorderman, 59, who also happens to be an ambassador for the Cleft Lip and Palate Association, Tweeted out her disdain for Williams’ comments saying, "I really am disgusted by this @wendywilliams.. Mimicking a cleft lip, and making a joke about it, is disgraceful. Have you any idea the pain and operations a child with cleft must go through as they grow?"
While the Joker star has never formally addressed his cleft lip scar, it's more than likely not an ailment for the award-winning actor who is currently celebrating the success as his role as one of Batman's nemeses. Check out the segment where Wendy Williams goes in on Joaquin Phoenix's cleft lip at the 11:15 mark in the video provided below.

Although Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena have been sharing much of their private life on social media for fans to follow, the real tea is only available on your small screen through the reality series that boosted them back into the public eye.

We all know that fights between loved ones can actually bring us closer so we're hoping that the argument that Erica and Safaree was handled effectively when they returned to the crib after this incident.

As reported by Bossip, Rich Dollaz, Mena's ex-boyfriend, was present for the festivities and it would appear as though he was invited by Safaree. Of course, Erica lost her mind and now, social media is going after both sides of the couple.

Kanye West’s "Jesus Is King" Stumped Jeopardy’s "Greatest Of All Time" Contestant
No fans of Yeezy on this show?
Some of the best Jeopardy! contestants in history found themselves at a loss on Tuesday night, when a question about Kanye West's discography left all three of them stumped. At one point during a round of the game show, host Alex Trebek read out the clue, "'Follow God' and 'Closed on Sunday' are tracks on this 2019 Kanye West album." Despite the fact that the special was called Greatest Of All Time, the contestants Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter, and James Holzhauer, somehow all failed to come up with the correct answer, "What is Jesus Is King."
In the clip, Ken, Brad, and James are completely stumped, watching as they proceeded to lose several hundreds of dollars. Ken in particular appears visibly frustrated, although his Kanye shortcoming did not cause any significant damage to his end results. Ken went on to win the "Greatest of All Time" title with a grand prize total of $1 million. He gave a shoutout to infamous TV host and Jeopardy! creator, the late Merv Griffin, on Twitter. "Gotta give it up to the Big Man himself *points upward to heaven* Merv Griffin," Ken tweeted, along with a photo of himself with his fellow participants.
Strangely enough, this is not the first time that a question about one of Kanye's albums has proved difficult for Jeopardy! contestants. In 2016, Alex Trebek gave the players the clue, "Kanye West for giving us so many different versions to choose from of this early 2016 album." The answer, of course, was Life of Pablo, but the contestants didn't even give the question a shot.
Jeopardy! should definitely start screening its contestants for extensive Kanye knowledge from now on.
