President Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch, a fast-rising conservative judge with a writer's flair, to the Supreme Court on Tuesday, setting up a fierce fight with Democrats over a jurist who could shape America's legal landscape for decades to come.
At 49, Gorsuch is the youngest Supreme Court nominee in a quarter-century. He's known on the Denver-based 10th Circuit Court of Appeals for clear, colloquial writing, advocacy for court review of government regulations, defense of religious freedom and skepticism toward law enforcement.
"Judge Gorsuch has outstanding legal skills, a brilliant mind, tremendous discipline and has earned bipartisan support," Trump declared, announcing the nomination in his first televised prime-time address from the White House.

WHERE HAS Missy Elliott BEEN? The SHY but super IMAGINATIVE INNOVATOR has been EVERYWHERE but still very PRIVATE and reserved...until NOW. There is a Missy Elliott documentary in the works about her LIFE, CAREER and her IMPACT on POP CULTURE as a WHOLE!!! Missy has BLESSED US with COUNTLESS hits of her own, for others and her VISION is SO NEXT LEVEL that it is PAST TIME for us to learn even MORE about her! Take a LOOK at a TEASER from her upcoming project!!
New Edition’s “Heartbreak” tour is an incredible success and the group is soaring high. Bobby, who has his own hit album “Don’t Be Cruel”, starts off as their opening act. But he soon eclipses them, becoming one of the biggest stars in R&B music. By 1990, all the members have launched hugely successful solo careers – even though there’s tension bubbling under the surface between them. A few short years later when most of the guys are up to their ears in debt, they agree to do a reunion album and tour with all six members, including Bobby. This should be New Edition’s rebirth, but things immediately get off to a bad start. In the aftermath, all six members go their separate ways, trying to navigate life after N.E., leaving little hope to maintain the brotherhood they once shared.

Chrisette Michelle has been BLASTED all across the NEWS for performing at President Trump's Inauguration ball. Now the 'Unbreakable' singer is speaking out about all the DRAMA that followed her accepting the gig and not meeting the president at the ball and MUCH MORE with 'The Breakfast Club'.
“Part of me is brokenhearted by what’s going on,” she explained. “Part of my self-esteem, my ego is hurting because I don’t know what’s going on. I don’t know if anybody is listening. A part of me as a person, not a singer at the ball, but as a person, wanted to say, ‘My black matters. This is black.’ A part of me wanted to say, ‘This is what what we sing like. This how we stand.’ A part of me felt like, ‘Have you ever seen me before? Are y’all talking about me in this campaign?’ So, yeah, I think I made an impact.”
See what else she had to say after the JUMP!!

The year is 1978. The city, Roxbury, MA, just outside of Boston. Eleven year old Bobby Brown convinces some friends (Ricky Bell, Mike Bivins, and Ralph Tresvant) to perform in local talent shows in an attempt to win money (and girls). Once the group is formed, they convince a hot local manager, Brooke Payne, to turn them into talent show winners. The boys are eventually discovered by music impresario, Maurice Starr, who signs them to a record deal. They add a fifth member, Ronnie DeVoe, and their debut song “Candy Girl” hits #1 on the charts. Gary Evans, a manager from NYC, promises them a better deal, bigger stardom, and more money. When the boys get a new deal with MCA Records in L.A., things get off to an inauspicious start when MCA president Jheryl Busby, underwhelmed by his new signing, pushes them to deliver a hit album or else.

Did you MISS the OUTSPOKEN NeNe Leakes on 'Watch What Happens Live' with Andy Cohen? You know it's always a good time and INFORMATIVE when NeNe returns to the clubhouse.
NeNe was DROPPING a lot of GEMS and quips and one liners as she always does..but one thing she said that resonated with me was her P.O.V. on the status of Kandi and Phaedra's relationship. NOW SHE HIT THE NAIL on the MUTHA--U know the rest-- HEAD.
I've been saying for YEARS the same thing..but I'm not 'BIG IN THESE STREETS' like most, so nobody be listening to me too much. But we've seen for several seasons, Phaedra 'throwing the rocks and hiding her hands'. She will dish some KRAY KRAY stuff then look back as if she is this DEMURE 'Southern Belle' with no flaws. Kandi and she developed a GREAT relationship, from what we could tell. And we all know when you are COOL with a person, you know where all the 'bodies are buried'. AS FRIENDS, you talk trash, do dirt and keep SECRETS in the vault that many will never know. THAT IS until the friendship goes LEFT. MOST GOOD friends will keep it pushing--no love lost-- and the secrets are left in the vault. THAT IS UNTIL the other FRIEND start dropping BOMBS all the while you are trying to take the high road. FROM WHAT WE HAVE SEEN, Kandi since coming on to the 'RHOA' landscape, she has been about the REALEST and most TRANSPARENT one of all. She even BUMPED HEADS with the 'HEAD PEACH' at the time, NeNe because NeNe seemed to be a bit 'resistant' to her GROWING presence on the show. Y'all remember that episode when Kandi and NeNe went head to head for the FIRST TIME.....
