Harvey, who is married to Lori's mother, Marjorie Bridges Harvey, expressed surprise when the paparazzi stopped him on the street and asked him about his stepdaughter's latest sexual conquest.

"I don't know nothing about that," he said.

His smile faded when he was asked if he approved of Future. "I don't know nothing about that," the radio host repeated.

Harvey commented on fellow comedian George Lopez catching heat for saying he would take half of Iran's $80 million bounty to kill President Trump, a close friend of Harvey's.

"George is a comedian. But you know, the climate now, you can't tell jokes no more," Harvey said.

He also commented on the controversy surrounding fellow comedian Mark Curry who accused Harvey of stealing his jokes.

"I'm getting sick of this," he said before adding that Curry "needs to grow up." The Family Feud host said Curry confronted him years ago about the allegations, but Curry couldn't remember which jokes Harvey allegedly stole.

A source told Us Weekly that Jackson is "so supportive of Jodie and loves to cheer her on."

Rumors swirled that Jackson and Turner-Smith were married after sharp-eyed fans noticed an engagement ring on that finger when she attended an event with him in August.

Then in November, they made their red carpet debut together at the Queen & Slim premiere in Los Angeles.

A witness tells Us Weekly, "Joshua looked so thrilled to be there to support [Jodie]. He was all smiles and doting on her and her family all night. A total gentleman."

Turner-Smith showed off her dazzling engagement ring on her left hand which she rested on her abdomen, sparking rumors that she and Jackson are pregnant.

Jackson and Turner-Smith began dating in mid 2018. A source told Us Weekly that they attended singer Usher's 40th birthday party together in October 2018. The source noted that they "were all over each other" and gazing into each other's eyes as they danced together the whole night."

In August, the British-born actress shared a photo of the couple gazing into each other's eyes. She captioned the image: "Two people who only fancy each other a little bit."

Not much is known about Turner-Smith. The 33-year-old former model was born in England to Jamaican parents. She worked as a banker in Pittsburgh, and was convinced to become a model after meeting musician Pharrell Williams.

She made her acting debut as a vampire in HBO's True Blood.

Jackson, 41, previously dated actress Diane Kruger from 2006 to 2016. Their union did not produce children.

Kruger, 43, moved on with Walking Dead actor Norman Reedus. They welcomed a daughter in November 2018.

Relax ladies. Jeannie Mai's rep denies reports that she is pregnant with boyfriend Jeezy's baby. According to Jeannie’s rep her uterus is currently unoccupied.

Rumors spread this week that the 40-year-old daytime talk show host was pregnant with rapper Jeezy's baby. If true, the child would have been Jeannie's first and Jeezy's 2nd or 3rd.

According to MTOnews.com, a source claimed Jeannie is "eating for two" and that camera crews were under strict orders to shoot her from an angle to hide her growing baby bump.

"We've been told to shoot Jeannie from the side to make her look slimmer," the source tells MTO News. "Jeannie is already a tiny girl, so there's really no need to make her slimmer."

But Jeannie's rep tells Lovebscott.com exclusively that the divorced TV personality is not pregnant.

According to Scott, Jeannie's rep "flat out denies the report."

Only time will tell if Jeannie or Jeezy will be changing diapers this summer.

Atlanta power couple Jeezy and Jeannie Mai are expecting their first child in 2020, according to sources close to the couple.

A source on daytime talk show The Real claims Jeannie is pregnant with rapper Jeezy's baby.

The source claims Jeannie is "eating for two" and that camera crews are under strict orders to shoot her from an angle to hide her growing baby bump.

"We've been told to shoot Jeannie from the side to make her look slimmer," the source tells MTO News. "Jeannie is already a tiny girl, so there's really no need to make her slimmer."

The source added: "Then we were told that they expect her to gain weight, and they wanted to try and hide it from the cameras.

The 40-year-old television personality is desperate for a baby of her own now that she's approaching middle age.

Her unwillingness to have children led to the collapse of her 10-year marriage to Freddy Harteis.

"My own standards were low," she told co-hosts Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon Houghton and Tamera Mowry about her failed marriage.

"We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum."

But Jeannie is not putting all the blame on Freddy. "I am not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do," she said. "When [Freddy] said things like 'good for you' or 'that's cool,' I'm like, 'That's great, he supports me!' That to me is my standard of support."

She broke down in tears as she recalled realizing she deserved more when she started dating Jeezy, and he was so attentive to her.

"I didn't even know until my new relationship that something as basic... I'm not crying to feel bad. It was just so touchy. But even something as basic as like at his birthday party, he left his own birthday to drive me to the airport. He was like, 'are you kidding? I want to see you off,'" she said.

Future Hendrix is preparing for baby #8 with his new concubine, Lori Harvey. The promiscuous rapper is reportedly living with Lori, who is best known as Steve Harvey's stepdaughter.

Steve, 62, is married to Lori's mother, fashionista Marjorie Bridges Harvey, 55. According to MTONews.com, Lori moved out of her parents' home to live with Future in his luxury penthouse apartment in Los Angeles, not far from Steve and Marjorie's lavish mansion.

There are reports that Marjorie and Steve disapprove of Lori's relationship with the rapper, real name Nayvadius Demun Wilburn.

"I don't know whether they approve of Future or not, but they don't [meddle] in her personal business," the insider tells the gossip blog.

Future officially claimed Lori as the latest addition to his harem last month. She was his special guest at his star-studded birthday bash in Atlanta last month.

The 36-year-old rapper posted video on his Instagram story that showed Lori sitting next to him in a chauffeured car in the UAE where they were on holiday.

Future also posted a photo of Lori posing in an all-black ensemble in a well-appointed hotel lobby. He captioned the post, "Flawless. Tap for details."

Friends say Future is serious about Lori. She's only 22 and fertile. The father-of-7 reportedly wants 10 kids, like his idol Eddie Murphy.

Lori, who was born under the Capricorn star sign, is best known for briefly dating entertainment mogul Sean Combs, 50, and his son Justin Combs, 25.

She was briefly engaged to soccer player Memphis Depay, 25, and she enjoyed brief romantic flings with bisexual R&B singers Trey Songz, 35 and Teyana Taylor, 28, pictured right with Lori at a nightclub in Atlanta.

Rapper Meek Mill elevated Lori's status when he shouted her out on a rap song.

Caroline Wozniacki, 29, rocked the tennis world on Friday when she announced she is retiring from tennis to start a family with husband David Lee.

Photo by Ciao Pix / BACKGRID

Wozniacki and Lee are pictured on holiday in Venice in 2017. The former world No. 1 tennis champion announced her retirement in a lengthy post on Instagram. The unselfish star told her followers "there is a lot more in life that I'd like to accomplish off the court."

"I've played professionally since I was 15 years old. In that time, I've experienced an amazing first chapter of my life. With 30 WTA singles titles, a world #1 ranking for 71 weeks, a WTA Finals victory, 3 Olympics, including carrying the flag for my native Denmark, and winning the 2018 Australian Open Grand slam championship, I've accomplished everything I could ever dream of on the court."

Wozniacki probably realizes she only has a handful of years to carry healthy babies to term without going the IVF route.

"I've always told myself, when the time comes, that there are things away from tennis that I want to do more, then it's time to be done. In recent months, I've realized that there is a lot more in life that I’d like to accomplish off the court. Getting married to David [Lee] was one of those goals and starting a family with him while continuing to travel the world and helping raise awareness about rheumatoid arthritis (project upcoming) are all passions of mine moving forward."

Doctors urge women to get pregnant before age 35 to avoid increased risk of birth defects or genetic defects.

According to the National Institutes of Health, if a woman gets pregnant at age 25, the risk of having a baby with Down syndrome is about 1 in 1,250. At age 40, the risk is 1 in 100.

Khloe Kardashian was surprised to receive a diamond necklace and promise ring from ex-fiancé Tristan Thompson during Sunday's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

The 35-year-old reality star ended her relationship with the Cleveland Cavaliers star Tristan after discovering he'd cheated on her with former family friend Jordyn Woods.

But the pair have been working to keep their relationship on good terms for the sake of their daughter, 19-month-old True Thompson, who needs her father in her life full-time.

Tristan seems confident of a reunion, and he recruited Khloe's Black friends Khadijah and Malika Haqq to help him deliver the diamond necklace and buy his way back into Khloe's heart.

"Tristan reached out to see if we would help him get Khloe this gift," the sisters explained in a confessional interview. "Of course we said yes!"

While Khloe clearly liked the gift, she was apparently uncomfortable with accepting the gifts and what that would mean for her and her daughter.

"I am conflicted as to if I should keep it or not, because I just want to make sure there's no expectations," she explained. "It's the sweetest kindest gesture, but that still doesn't mean, 'OK, a necklace is just gonna fix everything'."

Photo by MAE/BACKGRID

There have been other signs that Tristan is breaking down her resistance. The day before Khloe's 35th birthday he gave her a stunning pink diamond ring, and the star revealed to sister Kourtney's ex Scott Disick how Tristan presented it to her.

"He goes, 'This is a promise ring,' and I go, 'Promise to be nice to me as True's mom.' I was like, 'I really appreciate it. I don't think I can accept it.' He goes, 'Just think about it. It's yours.'"

"It looks fully like an engagement ring," Scott said, examining the jewelry, as Khloe explained he also gave her a hand-written card expressing his appreciation for her.

"It was the nicest, longest card and it was in his bad handwriting, which is what I wanted," Khloe explained. "Something tangible that I can keep."

The 36-year-old rapper posted video on his Instagram story that showed him in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. In the clip Future is in the backseat of luxurious car. He scans over to show Lori sitting right next to him.

Lori was Future's special guest at his star-studded all-white birthday bash in Atlanta recently. She stayed in the shadows all night and was reportedly surrounded by armed bodyguards.

Lori is the daughter of Atlanta socialite Marjorie Harvey, who married comedian Steve Harvey in 2007.

The 22-year-old Capricorn is best known for briefly dating entertainment mogul Sean Combs and his son Justin Combs. She was briefly engaged to soccer player Memphis Depay and had a brief fling with bisexual R&B singer Trey Songz, among others.

Rapper Meek Mill elevated Lori's status when he shouted her out on a rap song. She has no children, but that will probably change soon.

Lori was involved in a hit & run arrest while driving her Mercedes SUV in Beverly Hills in October. Her car flipped and the other driver had to remove Lori from her vehicle. She reportedly left the scene and was ticketed when police tracked her down, according to The Blast.

Rejoice ladies! Ray J is apparently back on the market. The R&B crooner and reality TV star blocked his pregnant wife, Princess Love, on Instagram.

Ray J, 38, apparently blocked his wife after she accused him of abandoning her and their 1-year-old daughter Melody in Las Vegas this past weekend.

"Somebody tell Scooty boy he's only hurting himself," she wrote next to a screenshot of her estranged husband's account. "This is so funny to me," she added. She also tweeted, "Time to let go."

The 35-year-old mother-of-one accused Ray J of leaving her and their child in Vegas after attending the Soul Train Awards on Sunday night.

"Left me and Melody stranded in Vegas and blocked me from calling," she wrote, "now you wanna post family photos #ByeUgly."

Princess's followers are skeptical that this might be a publicity stunt for their reality TV show. But Ray J has a history of failed relationships with celebrity females. It is not a stretch to believe their marriage is over.

Ray J's more famous sexual conquests include socialite Kim Kardashian-West and the late music icon Whitney Houston. He is best known for a viral sex tape he made with Kim in 2003.

Question: Do you believe Ray J and Princess Love's marriage is over and this is a PR stunt?

For their first public outing as a couple, Keanu took Alexandra to the LACMA Art + Film Gala, presented by Gucci, in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Keanu and Alexandra collaborated on a book, Ode to Happiness, in 2011 after reportedly meeting in 2009. They grew increasingly close over the years - even as Keanu dated other women including actresses Charlize Theron, 44, and Halle Berry, 53 (below).

Keanu and Alexandra wrote their 2nd book together, Shadows, in 2016, according to Dailymail.com. An artist, poet, journalist and photographer, Alexandra photographed Keanu on the set of his popular assassin film series John Wick.

She also photographed Keanu on the set of The Matrix. She said she was in awe of the way he moved, and she included those photos in their book, Shadows.

"No one can move the way he can. He's a really extreme performer. That's a huge piece of why those images are so interesting,” she told W. "I knew that if I moved the camera as we danced together, as photographer and subject, we could create these wonderful optical illusions."

She told W magazine that their differences make them compatible.

"We can spend a lot of time debating. Like, 'A raspberry hue? And should it be darker?' We can get obsessive."

Keanu made his star turn in the drug culture comedy flick Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure in 1989.

Nicki Minaj's new husband, Kenneth "Zoo" Petty, 42, reportedly dropped $1.1 million in cash on her wedding ring. The Barbie rapper posted images and videos showing off their rings on Instagram.com.

There are unconfirmed rumors that Nicki gave Zoo the million in cash, along with a note to take to the jeweler. But Nicki and Zoo dismissed the rumors in an Instagram post.


 

"Everybody said that you secured the bag, you married a multi-millionaire and you secured the bag," said Nicki, who was dressed as the Bride of Chucky.

"You know I just cut somebody's mother f**king finger off for that ring," replied Zoo, who is dressed as Chucky.

"You mean, I didn't buy this ring?" Minaj asks him.

"No, you didn't buy that ring!" he responded.

According to reports, the massive ring wasn't ready when the couple tied the knot at a private residence. The custom ring was hand delivered this week, and Nicki excitedly showed it off on social media on Wednesday.

The jeweler, Rafaello & Co., told TMZ that Zoo paid for the ring on his own. But many speculate that the jeweler was instructed to tell TMZ that.

The jeweler also noted that the 17-carat ring is worth an estimated $1.1 million. Kathryn Money, VP of Strategy & Merchandising for Brilliant Earth tells ET that the diamond ring is about 15-carats and the white gold or platinum band alone is worth an estimated $50,000 to $65,000.


 

Nicki married Zoo after a brief, whirlwind courtship. They reportedly met when she was a teenager. He is a registered sex offender who spent time in prison for manslaughter. But Nicki wants to put all of that behind her as she embarks on her new life journey at age 36.

"When I was little, I always imagined princess and marriage and the wedding and now it's more to me about the life, the future, the love, the partnership, than the wedding," she said. "[It's] so strange cause I didn't expect myself to be one of those people who didn't care about the hoopla, but I really don't."

Nicki's diamond bling isn't as impressive as the $10 million, 40 carat rock Steve Harvey gave his wife, Marjorie Harvey, after rumors of infidelities and impending divorce landed him in the headlines.

Nicki Minaj and her new husband Kenneth "Zoo" Petty tied the knot in a "no frills" wedding on Monday. But now they are planning a huge celebration for family and friends.

The 36-year-old Barbie rapper confirmed she and Kenneth exchanged vows in a video she shared on her Instagram page that showed matching "Mr and Mrs" mugs and "Bride and Groom" baseball caps. In the caption, Nicki revealed her new surname: "Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10•21•19."

WENN/Avalon

Sources tell TMZ that the couple married at a private residence in Los Angeles with just a few members of their immediate families to witness the nuptials, as well as a female minister to conduct the ceremony.

But the newlyweds are planning a proper church service and a huge star-studded celebration in the near future. First they are working on an heir or heiress to Nicki's rap throne.

The insider added the only reason they had a small service initially is because their marriage license was due to expire, meaning they would have to apply for a new one and start over again if they wanted to marry after the 90-day deadline expired.

Nicki and Kenny's plans are similar to power couple Justin and Hailey Bieber, who initially wed in a New York courthouse in September 2018. They hosted another wedding service and star-studded celebration last month.

Rosario Dawson says she's "in love" with long shot presidential candidate Cory Booker. The 40-year-old actress and the New Jersey senator opened up about their relationship to The Washington Post.

"I'm in love! I am absolutely in love, and it is so exciting," Dawson gushed.

"Look, both of us, you know, we've had relationships," Booker added, "but I'm not sure if I've ever fully given myself over to a relationship as much as I have with her and allowed myself to be as vulnerable."

Despite their declarations of love, Twitter users remained unconvinced that they are a heterosexual couple. Many insist Dawson is Booker's beard.

The slang "beard" is defined loosely as someone of the opposite sex who is hired or volunteers to help a homosexual pretend to be heterosexual.

Booker, 50, has been hounded by homosexual rumors for over 2 decades.

As far as anyone can tell, he has never had a serious relationship with a biological female.

Which explains why the then 49-year-old politician described behaving like an awkward schoolboy when they bumped into each other at an event in 2018.

"I mean, gosh, that night we talked for hours and hours," he recalled. "I had trouble asking for her phone number... I think I said something really stupid like, 'Uh, how would I get in touch with you?' And she mercifully said something like, 'Oh, you want my phone number?' And my insides were like, 'Hell, yeah!'"

But Twitter users are quick to point out their awkward body language and other discrepancies.

"Rosario Dawson may never win an Oscar but she's a shoe in for [the] Best Beard Award.," wrote one Twitter user.

Another user tweeted, "Rosario Dawson is taking one for the team. Pretending to be Cory Booker's girlfriend. In old Hollywood these women were called Beards."

And a third user tweeted: "Rosario Dawson with Cory Booker is a publicity thing nothing more. Dare I say she's his beard. When the election is over they'll mysteriously "part ways"

But Booker is already dreaming of a wedding in the Rose Garden of the White House - if by some miracle he wins the Democratic nomination.

Jeannie Mai believes she has found the love of her life in Atlanta rapper Jeezy, real name Jay Wayne Jenkins, 42.

The Real co-host gushed about Jeezy in Wednesday's episode.

"I am not blaming my ex for the things that he barely came through to do," Mai, 40, told her co-hosts, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon Houghton and Tamera Mowry as well as guest-host Tisha Campbell.

Mai, who broke into tears, said her standards were low for her marriage to Freddy Harteis, 42.

"We can go into a whole counseling session on why I only gave myself the bare minimum," she said before adding she doesn't place all of the blame on her ex.

She suggested that there was an element of jealousy in their marriage and that her TV success may have made Harteis feel inadequate.

"When [Harteis] said things like 'good for you' or 'that's cool,' I'm like, that's great, he supports me! That to me is my standard of support."

She said it wasn't until she met Jeezy that she realized she deserved more.

"I didn't even know until my new relationship that something as basic..." Mai said as she broke down crying.

"I'm not crying to feel bad. It was just so touchy. But even something as basic as like at his birthday party, he left his own birthday to drive me to the airport," Mai said of the "Put On" rapper. "He was like 'are you kidding?' I want to see you off.'"

"You can blame [your exes] but just be mindful of your standards," Mai cautioned the audience.

Mai said she upgraded herself when she met Jeezy, a Libra who has a history of failed relationships with women.

Oprah Winfrey says she has "not had one regret" over her decision not to marry Stedman Graham or have children.

Oprah met the love of her life, Stedman Graham, at a charity event in 1986, after enduring years of failed relationships with emotionally unavailable and married men.

Oprah was so distraught over losing one boyfriend, that she got on her knees and begged him to stay.

"I thought I was worthless without him. The more he rejected me, the more I wanted him. I felt depleted, powerless. At the end, I was down on the floor on my knees groveling and pleading with him" she said.

The men Oprah has loved and lost included Roger Ebert and John Tesh, who broke up with her over the pressure of being in an interracial relationship.

In the latest issue of People Magazine, the 65-year-old media mogul insisted she's glad she and Stedman, 68, didn't tie the knot, because it would never last.

"No question about it - we would not stay married, because of what that would have meant to him, and I would have had my own ideas about it," The Color Purple star shared. "I have not had one regret about that."

Photo: WENN.com

Of her decision to not have children, she said: "At one point in Chicago I had bought an additional apartment because I was thinking, 'Well, if we get married, I'm going to need room for children'.

Oprah admitted she didn't possess "the depth of responsibility and sacrifice that is actually required to be a mother."

She encountered many "messed up people" while working on The Oprah Winfrey Show. People who made her aware of her own inadequacies, which discouraged her from starting her own family.

"I realized, 'Whoa, I'm talking to a lot of messed up people, and they are messed up because they had mothers and fathers who were not aware of how serious that job is,'" Oprah said. "I don't have the ability to compartmentalize the way I see other women do."

The TV mogul filled the void through her philanthropic efforts. She's donated tens of millions of dollars to HBCU schools, including a $13 million donation to Morehouse College earlier this week.

"I also believe that part of the reason why I don't have regrets is because I got to fulfill it in the way that was best for me: the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa," she said.

"Those girls fill that maternal role that I perhaps would have had. In fact, they overfill — I’m overflowed with maternal."

Adele Adkins fans say she is jumping from the frying pan into the fire by dating grime star Skepta so soon after filing for divorce from her baby's father.

Adele is reportedly dating the British grime star after her expected split from her inattentive husband Simon Konecki.

WENN.com

The "Hello" singer, 31, is said to have been out on a number of dates with the musician - including for his 37th birthday last month. According to WENN.com, friends of the pair are "hoping and predicting" that they go on to become a "great couple".

A source told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "Adele and Skepta have been there for each other a lot after both their relationships split up."

"They have a close bond and there's definitely a special connection," the insider continued. "They're spending more and more time together. Some of their friends are hoping and predicting they could end up being a great couple one day."

But her fans worry that Skepta is a promiscuous man with an untold number of lonely females left in his wake.

Bertrand Rindoff Petroff/Getty Images

This is the same Skepta who posed half naked on the cover of British GQ magazine with former supermodel Naomi Campbell last year, prompting rumors that they were dating. It was later reported that they broke up, most likely due to the 12-year difference in their ages.

Even though Adele's friends are hoping for a Love match, both Adele and the Shutdown star are said to be focusing on their children as their main priority.

The "Rolling in the Deep" star shares son Angelo with Simon, and Skepta - whose real name is Joseph Junior Adenuga, Jr. - became a father to daughter River last November.

The rumored couple have been pals for several years (though both were in relationships). The grime star told ES Magazine back in 2016: "Adele texts me all the time and keeps me in check. She speaks to me about how things are going."

The pop singer, who was raised by a single mom, filed for divorce from Simon last month, with both parties seeking joint custody of Angelo, and agreeing to settle financial issues in "private mediation".

Simon is expected to walk away with half of Adele's net worth.

Pregnant singer Cassie Ventura, 33, now goes by the name Cassie Fine, after tying the knot with ex-boyfriend Sean Combs' personal trainer, Alex Fine, 26.

The wedding news was revealed by officiant Peter Berg, who took to Instagram to share a snap of Cassie and Alex during the intimate ceremony off the cliff sides of Malibu, California, and wrote: "By the power vested in me…. @alexfine44 n @cassie Long may you ride!”

In the image, Cassie is seen showing off her growing baby bump in an off-the-shoulder white dress, paired with a white lace veil as she holds hands with Alex, who looks suave in his suit and tie.

It's unclear exactly when the wedding took place, but Cassie and Alex had revealed their intention to wed by picking up a marriage license back in August (19), WENN.com reports.

Cassie, who split from music mogul Diddy late last year after cheating on him with his personal trainer, is expecting a baby girl with Fine.

Combs, 50, reportedly took the break up hard. Particularly since he assumed he had Cassie under his complete control.

But sources say Cassie outgrew Combs, and she saw her chance to escape after his baby mama, Kim Porter, died of double pneumonia last year at age 47.

Friends say Combs was so distraught over Kim's death, that he failed to notice Cassie was head over heels in love with his personal trainer.

"She found true love with Alex," said the source.

Pastor Jamal H. Bryant is apparently dating his long-suffering ex-wife Gizelle Bryant, the mother of his three children. Pastor Bryant invited Kanye West to bring his traveling "Sunday Service" gospel revue to Atlanta's New Birth Missionary Church this weekend.

The pastor also invited his ex-wife, Real Housewives of Potomac reality TV star Gizelle Bryant to love up on him while all eyes in the congregation were on Kanye.

According to Page Six, the Bryants are "working on their relationship."

Gizelle, 49, and Jamal, 48, were married from 2002 to 2007, and share daughter, Grace, 14, and twins Adore and Angel, 13.

And since the children are still minors, they need both of their parents in the same household to act as an example so their children know what Love looks like.

During a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, Gizelle told host Andy Cohen that her daughters are trying to adjust to seeing their parents "date" again.

"They're a little confused to be honest with you because they've never seen us together in that way," she said. "We got divorced 12 years ago, so when he comes into town and he wants to take me to dinner, they're like, 'Wait a minute, aren't we all going? Because that's what we would normally do."

If everything works out with her ex, Gizelle will consider moving to Atlanta to assume her rightful place as First Lady of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

Why should that prestigious title be bestowed upon some other chick when Gizelle put in work raising his children all these years?

"So you're going to be a First Lady again?" co-star Monique Samuels asked Gizelle.

"Imma be whatever the Lord brings into my life," Gizelle responded. "I look back and I just feel like nobody is what their mistakes are. I feel he's a different person. I'm a different person, so we're baby-stepping, but we are moving in the direction that we want to move into. And I do love when we are all together as a family."
