Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie, co-anchors of NBC's Today Show

NBC anchor Hoda Kotb, right, is seen with her new co-anchor Savannah Guthrie, left, after Kotb, 53, was announced as the new permanent co-host of NBC's Today Show in New York City. Viewer response to the announcement was mixed. Most viewers loved the idea of 2 female co-anchors on the Today Show. But Kotb does have her share of haters who thought her promotion was the wrong move. Kotb replaces disgraced former anchor Matt Lauer.

Ne-Yo and wife Crystal Renay have Dinner at Catch LA

Ne-Yo and his wife Crystal Renay were spotted after celebrating the New Year at Catch LA Seafood restaurant in West Hollywood. Crystal has a great attitude and doesn't seem to mind when the paparazzi constantly mistake her for Ne-Yo's ex-wife Monyetta Shaw.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Crystal Renay looks like a heroine addicted street walker. That pairing is odd to me...kinda.

  • cherrypie

    There is no competition between his wife and Monyetta. Monyetta is beautiful. I follow her on IG and she seems to be doing well. Good for her. Neyo thought the grass was greener on the other side but found out it was only hay. Good for him.

  • 5000BlinK

    Im gonna miss Matt with his freaky azz

    I dont know what it is about NeYo wife but she give me this tacky vibe....but seems they are made for each other soooooooo

I gotta tell my mom about this she be complaining that they dont do testimony at church no more...this is probably why. It's always gone be that one person that runs out ?.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! not HAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! GIRL i am dying right nowwwwwwwwwwwwwww..not hay....i am using that for the rest of 2018

  • Crazy tee

    I said the same thing about the trashy look but she seems like a cool down to earth chick from the show she was on...

  • Prettybootnikki

    I am rolling. Funny. But not funny. Dang.

  • Ni Ni

    And he kept a straight face. He is better than me.

  • Li

    Alright I don't want to be bad....but Barron looks retarded. He looks like a kid without any confidence and god knows if he gets along with his father. I read in the gossips that the 3 Trump kids do not get along with Tiffany, his child by Marla. That they don't speak. I wonder what the kids think about Barron?
    And poor Melania. She looks so sad. Only smiles when the cameras are on.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    why the church cut off her testimony.....what's wrong with BALLS!!!!!! were the children not in children's church?

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    girl i keep watching it and feeling more convicted in my spirit every time...because i don't want to laugh at this woman's pain...

  • Li

    Do you get the feeling that Melania is "enslaved"? LOL

  • Nophace

    She said she gave oral sex with her mouth....as if she can give oral with any other body part!!! Hahahahahaha

  • Li

    I predicted that all the talk shows and TV news were going to be hosted by women. After the stuff that blew up about male hosts.
    Although I for one am sick of seeing so many women in the daytime shows....it's boring. I can only think of one man hosting a talk show -- Steve Harvey, all the rest are women.
    Women putting men out of work....I wonder how that's going to shake out.

  • Crazy tee

    F!rst Lady sure is walking that runway...?

  • You Could Never

    This comment took me the hell OUT. Garsh I hate yall.

    "The pain and agony she felt when she said BALLLLS. I felt the sorrow, i imagine it was the saggy long heavy type of balls."

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! girl i am laughing so hard, that someone is going to think i am seizing....PLEASE STOP my sides are cramping so bad...

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Crystal and Neyo look a mess.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

  • You Could Never

    I laughed at this mess from about 11:30 til at least 12:30 today.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    im done!!! im so done!!! i died!!! ole shady church didn't have to cut her off like that.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    where is the picture of Michelle Obama you keep referring to?

  • Allihave2say

    Baron is every inch of his mother, he slimmed down and got tall in a hurry. Just Jan. 2017 he was a plump kid.

  • Eww

    Why is Ne-Yo’s wife so sweaty and why is he dressed like a country church elder. Eww.

  • Noirluv45

    I've heard it said that Barron is autistic. ?? Poor Tiff has always been the stepchild. It's clear that 45 favors his beloved Ivanka. I agree about Melania.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Darkened room.

  • Allihave2say

    Neyo's wife always looks dirty, pole ready and poorly groomed. her Tatts are horrible.

  • ???

    ???? I will say nothing good about that slut the same way they had nothing good to say about Michelle Obama.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! super shady

  • Yardgirl

    I agree with them going that route. I was actually hoping Craig Melvin would have gotten the job. I like dynamic of a male and female host but these pervs have effed it up for the rest of the decent men out there!!

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    heyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy blaque xoxoxoxo

  • Yardgirl

    Thanks for posting as I keep going back too!!

  • Yardgirl

    Right!! I would have bent over laughing!!

  • Scromes1212

    Calling a child retarded is ignorant. JS

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Is that a giant turtle on that child's (Chrystal Renay) chest? Jesus, they both look a hot azz mess. Let me stop scrolling up.

  • Yardgirl

    THIS!! Had.me.rolling!!!

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    so we not talking about Queen Michelle? lol ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh CrazyTee meant that other lady? Whose actually walking more like a medicated asylum patient being escorted back to her padded room.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Just a couple of years ago "retarded" was a clinical diagnosis. But, I must admit I cringed when I read it in the comment above.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Corner...

  • hottlanta

    Gry you made my year already. Did she say anyone else got something to say about God goodness after she finished talking about licking balls. Really!!!!! I bet them church fans were going crazy. I heard someone say "OHHHH" they was having a flashback when the getting was good. She was soliciting customers in the name of Jesus. We say nuts as a teaser. When women say balls they mean business.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe
  • Liah

    Neyo wife looks a hot mess and he look like a pimp from the 70"s!

  • Scromes1212

    You are correct but it turned into a negative term. I think most people understand that. No need to do that with a kid. He can't help his circumstances.

  • Rayne

    That’s what makes me holler so loud. Like they having a flash back .... my chest ?

  • Rayne

    ????

  • Rayne

    I swear it sounded like they were just a big hairy smelly mess ??

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You support Trump who doesn't like political correctness.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • Rayne

    When I do go to church I usually pep up around testimony time ?

  • Scromes1212

    My statement is still true

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Because you know ish about to get good.

  • hottlanta

    Yep, we always got that one dyck no matter who we are with or where we are in life, but when we think about it we say "OHHHHHHHH".

  • SweetTEE

    Elder?!?!?!?!? IM DEAD.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Who cares.
    The Obama daughters were called everything but a child of God as was Chelsea Clinton so deal.

  • You Could Never

    Add in lil ole Amy Carter too.

  • Scromes1212

    Same As the Bush twins. But it's about y'all getting back at them so you don't really care smh

  • TMW

    I just had a flashback to Bobby and Whitney at the height of their crackhead days ?

  • You Could Never

    Nobody called them anything but drunk ass hoes. Hey I dont want any child bullied but it happens.

  • Scromes1212

    And they call Malia a weed head lol and people go crazy. If both shoes fit then it is what it is. But calling a kid retarded is a whole other level. JS

  • SweetTEE

    Im bout to block you. I clicked that d*** link and laughed so loud and ignant at my desk that my boss came to check on me!

  • You Could Never

    Did you take offense when this blog owner called Nala Aubrey (Halle's daughter) autistic based off of pics? Asking for my damn self?

  • Ni Ni

    See you messy, lol. Folks be tellling all they business.

  • SweetTEE

    Lord be patient with her!!! she obviously had a HARD life...lmao

  • You Could Never

    Worse BAWLS ever. Lord have mercy. I have acted a fool in these folks place of bidness on today.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    They were drinking underage (illegal) and had the Secret Service (taxpayer paid) abetting them.

    We're talking about behavior and not appearance.

    Totally different.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Because white kids smoke weed too but it only seems to be an issue if a child like Trayvon Martin or Mike Brown does it.

  • Rayne

    Me too! I got my director crying ?

  • Scromes1212

    Autistic is not a derogatory term, so no. It was a baseless diagnosis but hey that's Sandra lol

  • Rayne

    And I damn near wanna stand beside them so I can hear ? hear real good

  • Rayne

    No please lol

  • Rayne

    Yes suh!

  • Scromes1212

    And Malia smoking was illegal . What's your point?

  • pure_rachet

    She’s sweaty because she just got off the pole. Went to her Nana’s House, borrowed her church dress and skated out.

  • You Could Never

    A diagnosis based off a pic is never NOT deragatory. But okay. You got it.

  • Ni Ni

    I'm laughing so hard cause I do the same thing.

  • Scromes1212

    Here you go reaching again Rod lemon lol I'm talking about calling a child retarded and you talking about two kids that got gunned down smh you stay doing that smh

  • You Could Never

    No its not. Mass. where Harvard is located its legal and when her lil pot headed ass was in Chicago at the festival Lollapolooza it was decriminalized if its under 10 grams. But again. You got it dude.

  • stav

    Ne-Yo looks ridiculous in that tacky men's warehouse suit!

  • Blue

    Your tax dollars probably paid for 'em so... they already yours I guess.

  • country57

    "medicated asylum patient" Girl I'm falling on the floor dead!!!!!!

  • Yardgirl

    I am CRINE!!! I was raised Roman Catholic and not a dang thing goes on in our boring ass, dry ass church service. I went to my SIL church and I was giggling so hard, I had to send myself to the back and out the door. There was a lady in front halleLOOOyering. I get out of the service and my young son had drawn a picha of her including her elaborate hat and fan held high. I should not have laughed but I did. Then asked for forgiveness. Now I am laughing all over again.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    LOL. You are a wanna-be like Omarosa and Diamond and Silk.

    It's about people criticizing black parenting while excusing bad white parenting.

    Maybe you need a clue those people you're defending wouldn't p!ss on you if you were on fire nor would they defend your BLACK children like you're defending theirs.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I'm talking about when a black child smokes weed he's considered a thug, but when white kids do it they are 'experimenting'.

  • Scromes1212

    Recreational weed is not legal in Chicago. Right?

  • hottlanta

    Don't forget the disco hour. It gets even better and yet they complain about the clubs. Will someone please explain to me why they raise finger when they go across the room. I could never figure that out even as a child.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVcefZXgX-I

  • You Could Never

    If they arent going to charge you then what is it? Bc that is what decriminalize means. "cease by legislation to treat (something) as illegal." The opposite of illegal is what Scromes?

  • Scromes1212

    You on a whole different topic lol cut it out

  • Scromes1212

    You so simple minded lol alcohol ain't illegal, right? It was the fact that the bush girls did it in a illegal way. Same as Malia lol you made my argument lol

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No not really.

    Malia's father is no longer president and is a private citizen like she is but the racist white conservatives won't leave her alone.

    The Bush twins did their dirt while their father was president and under his roof.

  • Scromes1212

    Malia was seen smoking weed while he was still president lol stop it.

  • You Could Never

    How did she do it in an illegal way? You keep on riding for Trump's funny looking son. I dont know his medical diagnosis. Nobody does. We also dont know Malia's. She could have a damn legal use license. She is after all frigging MALIA OBAMA. I do know alcohol isnt legally used to treat any illness and that the Bush girls have a higher chance of being alkies bc their dad was one. Folks called Chelsea Clinton ugly and Amy Carter even uglier. Being a presidential kid is rough.But Im not going to sit up here and give Barron ass a pass while the likes of all these OTHERS were dragged. He is not anymore special than the others.

  • FranziaRed

    You so wrong for this...we all going to heyull

  • Scromes1212

    Nothing else valid to say now you come with a bogus argument lol happy new year!

  • MissHarlem

    Fck that I'm going to say it. Child been look retarded and honestly thought a light will be shined on him in a good way. Other moms deal with it and a kid in the white house that's retarded would've helped ? say what you want

  • iWasteTime

    Did someone explain weather and climate change to 45 while he was there?

  • Ni Ni

    halleLOOOyering
    _______________
    I am done

  • hottlanta

    You are spot on. Me and my friends was talking bout how those white folks was puffing up storm on national television on the weed bus for the New Year celebration but if that bus had been full of black folks they would have been out of jobs this morning even though weed smoking is legal (wink wink). That is like you are not supposed to go to jail if you owe a debt to someone but you go to jail if you are behind in child support.

    Speaking of Steve. They been going in on him all day about his outfit. I have told black men time and time again. Those AMISH hats don't LOOK GOOD on yall. Take them off please.

  • Yardgirl

    I love to laugh!! When I get down or stressed, a good laugh takes me to another place and I like it!!

  • alex

    Maybe there would have been a positive light shinned on him and possible autism, except his mama threatened to sue the hell out of a 19 year old autistic man with no money just because he mentioned the kid might be autistic like himself. All of the adults in that family are trash. Throw them all out.

  • alex

    In English it is now derogatory, but in French we still use "retard" to mean "slow" or "late".

  • Indies beauty

    I'm happy to see Krystal smiling... they tried her on the Platinum Life. Lol she was my favorite on there.

  • Kanyade

    i'm so second-hand embarrassed for her. lord have mercy. someone should've taken her to the side and talk to her.

  • the guest

    So Neyo wanted a "hoeish" looking type woman for a wife. He broke a home with Monyetta Shaw and their two children to fulfill his fantasy for a "hoeish' looking type woman. Unreal.

  • the guest

    On his way to being 6.7. He's 11 and 5.10. He is Trumps only good looking boy child. His two older sons while monied and neatly groomed are not good looking men.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Lol, nah she wanna be there.

  • Rayne

    When you haven’t been to church to testify in a while you forget the “church rules”. I had everybody crying ? today lol

  • Rayne

    Noooo ?

  • the guest

    He does not look retarded. I think he looks annoyed with public life. I think he looks like he was content with a regular life, regular life even for a wealthy kid.

    There are 11 year olds that come from money and they act and dress pretentious. Baron dresses and acts down to earth which is really interesting I think. His siblings were always about their status, bling and flash.

    This kid looks like he's going to grow up is to buy a 1000 acres in Montana, marry a girl from college, and live a very normal life off a billion dollar trust. Because he seems unimpressed with his privilege.

  • the guest

    All kids are off limits.

  • the guest

    I feel ALL kids are off limits. All of them.

  • No Love Lost

    Read that tap dancing clown ???

  • dontgetblocked

    He seems down to earth because he's only eleven. He greatly admires his father and he will grow into his confidence. I doubt that he settles down on a farm. He's entitled and he will inherit a billion dollar business. I know what you're trying to say but he's not impressed because wealth is all he's ever had.

  • dontgetblocked

    Melania is a bad bish.

  • Anonymouse

    Don’t be fooled by pictures. Everyone shows their best side for the cameras.

  • TMW

    I’m so confused about when “retarded” became a bad word. My daughter informed me of this when I called her retarded the other day, absolutely meaning no harm whatsoever - she was being silly or something. She told me it used to hurt her feelings when she was younger and I called her retarded - never knew that.

    Anywho, I would never seriously call someone the clinical definition of mental retardation, but I (used to) use the word all the time like “girl, you so retarded.” I been learned today. To call someone retarded has a negative connotation. Got it.
