  • MsMeWhenImGone

    How dare you!!! Leave Betty White alone!!

  • Buttercup

    My childhood friend passed yesterday morning. I lived across the street from him for over a decade, so we grew up together. He just celebrated his 30th a couple of months ago. Heartbreaking.

    I'm so sorry Buttercup. It's extremely hard to lose someone especially someone whom you've known for practically your whole life. I dont know you but I do know what you are feeling and my thoughts and prayers are with you sweetie.

  • MissHarlem

    She's been labeled that by Industry peeps since she was a fly girl. It is what it is

  • MissHarlem

    I need that Robert Downey Jr gif rolling his eyes

  • Soda

    Which proves that once you go black then try everything else in between, you do go back, sort of.

  • Buttercup

    Maybe the hoes will be able to tame each other. They won't though. Drake will be back in love with Rih by Valemtime's Day.

  • Sucker Free

    Its a play on j Lo and very accurate from what I've heard...

    i remember when Ben Affleck said when they met she had only been with 5 men...I was like this fool here is really naive...

  • Buttercup

    The queen definitely will outlive us. She's probably on her 4th heart rat nie!

  • Yoni

    From what I read, he was running to the car with his son (possibly racing) and the fell and hit his head. But nonetheless, he passed and my condolences go out to his family.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I'm so sorry to hear that, Butter!

  • Chardonnai

    Jlo found her a fool....

  • ThisHarryHere

    Right, i didn't know he was dead until i saw a story today talking about his cause of death, making me think he died last week not back in March.

  • Yoni

    Last week, I believe.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy
  • Yoni

    I haven't even read the list. I seen Keion (the headline) and Natalie and dassit.

  • luVn_liFe…

    ya'll be safe!

  • cherrypie

    Yes, and Jamie Foxx let it be known. Not JLo but Hey ho...

  • cherrypie

    They wont make it past the 3 month mark

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    So many good people left us... yet George Zimmerman is still with us.

  • Soda

    I thought the last day of December 2015 claimed Natalie Cole.

  • Sucker Free

    I like him with Riri...j hoe is overated and opportunistic

  • JerseyMom

    F*** 2016! I lost 1 uncle and two aunts in 2016! Also f*** 2013 (lost my Grandmother) and 2014 (lost my Mom and friend Monique)!

  • Yoni

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    And trump, Putin, blac faux chyna, Kim and Kanye, 50 cent still here

  • Sucker Free

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Two hoes in a publicity relationship.

  • luVn_liFe…

    +100 !

  • iWasteTime

    yup.
    Cause she was just with the "ex" who ain't been a "ex" for the last 8 or so months. The kiss was her way of claiming her "ex" and the finial nail in the coffin of that marriage

  • Yoni

    You forgot to add AMERIKKKA 11.8.16 #F5

  • Str8tUpMenace

    He sure did. LMAO

  • cherrypie

    Wow! He was only 39!!! So so very sad. May he rest in peace.

    No lies told.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I'm sorry for your loss, too! My condolences.

  • Str8tUpMenace
  • Buttercup

    He was "how you doing," so we suspect that it was HIV or AIDS. He'd been in and out of the hospital over the last year or so. I guess I thought that he was young and vibrant enough to pull through.

  • Yoni

    Everybody plays the fool.....sometiiiiimmmes. She just got tired and needed to change places.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    How you gonna change somebody exit date? You are correct

  • Buttercup

  • Buttercup

  • Str8tUpMenace

    *screams* You ain't never lied!!!!!!

  • Yoni

    EVER. LOL

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    It's crazy to think she was dating Diddy. 17 years ago.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    She back with Ben Affleck and using Drake as a distraction. She doesn't want to get blamed for helping break up his marriage.

  • Yoni

    Oh wow! SO sorry to hear that. I've been bummed since Christmas. PP's home and I've been moping around. Sad.

  • Chardonnai

    LMAO

  • Chardonnai

    Rhianna dont want drake's lame ass

  • Buttercup

    Awwww. Mope around as much as you need to. My friend's funeral is Saturday. I don't think I can go. I'll just send a nice flower and a stuffed card to his folks.

  • Sucker Free

    Who...Drake? ???

    He nursing his wounds...professed his love for Rihanna then got swerved and dumped ?

  • MissHarlem

    You the best!!!

  • Buttercup

    Why did they get matching tats then?

  • Chardonnai

    Drake dont even know he being used. She found another fool....

  • Incog-knee-gress

    So sorry Butter.

  • Soda
  • Chardonnai

  • felinelurker

  • MissHarlem

    Girl ?

  • Yoni

    Did Big Ang die this year as well?

  • Chardonnai

    Cause they are friends. Like Homies.

  • Buttercup

    Thank you. Y'all know my philosophy on death. It's only for my own selfish reasons that I will miss him. He's no longer suffering, and hopefully at peace.

  • cherrypie

  • Mr. LeBrick James

    yup

  • Yoni

  • Sucker Free

    what makes him lame? His lyrics? His white mama? Degrassi? His groupie like behavior? ?

    I think he tries too hard to fit in but he seems sweet like he would treat you like a queen...

  • Yoni

  • Missy

    & Prince Be from PM Dawn...

    Shucks that was a lot May all of the souls RIP

  • Renee Bee

    I really believe Pence is the scary one. We all know the Orange Man ( aka Mr Heatmeister depicted above) is just blowing hot air. But, Pence.....the unknown factor is going to make us tremble in our boots.
