Waka Flocka and Tammy Rivera

Rapper Wacka Flocka has apparently changed his mind about joining the cast of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.

In an interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club today, Waka cleared the air, saying his fiancée Tammy Rivera was the one joining the cast, not him.

But sources told Michelle over at StraightfromtheA reality TV blog a different story. They said Waka signed on the dotted line months ago, but he backed out at the last minute after rumors began circulating that he joined the cast because he thought the set of a reality TV show would be a safer environment for him.

Bill Cosby Talks to Don Lemon

Comedian and philanthropist Bill Cosby says there are some serious issues affecting black America and he knows how to solve them.

In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, Cosby, 76, said black women are the majority head of households, and he wants to see more black men taking responsibility for their sons.

“I think it has to come from the universities,” he said. “I think, women, strongly because when you see 70 percent, in research, that says they are the leaders of the household, what we need is for people to realize I want to raise my kid. I want to go back and get my three kids. I want to take on that responsibility. I want to love my children.”

Cosby also criticized “no-gross” who don’t provide solutions but are quick to blame him for focusing on the problems in the black community.
