But you know what, I'm a champ and I'm back," Williams said.

Cable Networks In Bidding War Over Who Will Air Cardi B And Offset’s Wedding!

TV weddings have guaranteed high ratings for networks everywhere. From Kim and Khloe Kardashian’s elaborate wedding specials to their now exes to the most recently talked about all-white knot-tying ceremony of Keyshia Ka’oir to Gucci Mane — Viewers tuned in making massive numbers. Now that the new hip-hop royalty couple, Cardi B and Offset, have announced their plans to marry — BET and VH1 are in competition to make a deal with them. Cardi B started out as a social media star who went from making popular videos on Instagram to completing two seasons of “Love and Hip Hop: New York.” After leaving the show, she went on to sign a record deal and top charts with “Bodak Yellow.” Offset, on the other hand, doesn’t have a TV background at all. The member of number one rap group Migos is currently busy with preparing for the release of their new album, that features Cardi B, titled “Culture 2.” When the “Bad and Boujee” musician proposed in front of thousands at Powerhouse, stans of the couple went crazy. In true internet culture, a Twitter user thought up a name for a wedding special to be titled “Never Let Migo.” Meanwhile #BET and #VH1 are bout to have a bidding war over who gets to produce #CardiB and #Offsets wedding 😜 Cardi is having the BEST year ever, all thanks to Je-ZUS as she says it 😂💕 #TeaTENDERS via @bardiset.page A post shared by TeaTENDERS_LIV (@teatenders_liv) on Oct 29, 2017 at 12:20am PDT When The Shade Room posted a screenshot of the idea the BET Instagram account commented: “@iamcardib @offsetyrn – #wegotyou when you ready!” “Love and Hip Hop” mastermind, Mona Scott Young, fired back with her own proposal stating: “Love ya @BET but $wegotthis. #anothercheckfrommonascott @vh1 #4evah!” It looks like the two networks are going head-to-head to see who can air the next most anticipated celebrity wedding! Naturally, you would expect the couple to choose VH1 since that’s where Cardi got her big break; however, she left the series because of how the producers were portraying her meaning that there could possibly be bad blood between Cardi and the channel. On the other hand, since this special would be surrounding the couple, it would mean that the rap songstress would be able to play executive producer and have things the way that she wants it so VH1 still has a fighting chance to be chosen. No one even knows if Cardi and Offset even want to air their vows, but if they chose to it would be a brilliant financial move. They could choose for it to be a one-time thing or follow in the footsteps of Keyshia and Gucci and make their own spin-off series.

😱 Wendy Williams hits Barbados beach after Hurricane Irma

Wendy Williams didn’t let the aftermath of Hurricane Irma interrupt her vacation plans. The gossip talk-show host, 53, took to the sandy beaches of Barbados on Monday in an eye-popping black bikini. She wore her hair in a messy up-do, her signature diamond “W” pendant, hot-pink shades and, of course, her oversize diamond ring. Williams, who turned vegan over two years ago, appeared completely at ease and relaxed on her holiday. She was also joined by longtime husband Kevin Hunter. Amid Hurricane Irma’s path of destruction, a 16-year-old junior professional surfer died in Barbados while surfing large swells brought on by the hurricane. The island, which largely escaped Irma’s wrath, is being used as a distribution hub for providing supplies to nearby countries. Williams’ trip to the Caribbean may be her last for a while. Her eponymous talk show will return for its latest season on Sept. 18.

The site also adds the image of the $2,754-check made out to Fox-Davis was from accounting firm David Weise & Associates for her babysitting services in 2012. The source continued to question the authenticity of the documents which haven’t been shared, just referenced by any other news or gossip site–including TMZ.

It isn’t known if the defamation suit would apply to the later accusers. On Monday (Aug. 8), former Usher fan Quantasia Sharpton held a press conference with lawyer Lisa Bloom, claiming she was exposed to herpes after having sex with the singer after meeting at his concert.
