Black Twitter is weighing in on Phaedra Parks' new boyfriend, actor Medina Islam, who will appear with her on the upcoming season of Marriage Boot Camp.

The hunky 35-year-old Virgo is best known for his role in Tyler Perry's The Haves and Have Nots.

For that reason, Black Twitter seems to think Medina goes both ways. They claim Tyler only hires ghey or bisexual actors as his leading men. But there is no evidence to support those allegations.

Medina is (or was) in a relationship with reality TV star and radio host Claudia Jordan.

Phaedra and Medina reportedly began dating a few months ago, after she broke up with ex-boyfriend DJ Tone Kapone. Many doubted Phaedra and Kapone were even a real couple.

Black Twitter says Phaedra and Medina are a made-for-tv couple. But it doesn't like she's paying him to play her man on TV.

Phaedra, 45, gushed over Medina in an interview with The Daily Mail in July.

"He's very smart, very intelligent. He's kind, we are both socially active. He's really sober and smart. He's a great father," Phaedra said of her current bae to DailyMail back in July. "So I'm excited about it."

Phaedra reportedly plans to move with her sons, Ayden, 9, and Dylan, 6, to Los Angeles to be closer to Medina.

In addition to acting, Medina is an artist and songwriter who released an album titled The Love that Hate Made. He is also a rap ghostwriter who penned Ludacris' hit single "Pimpin All Over the World."

Malik Yoba is making the rounds doing radio interviews after shocking his fans by coming out as a "heterosexual" man who is attracted to male to female (MtF) transgenders.

In an interview with Atlanta's V-103 Morning culture on Wednesday, Sept. 4, Yoba told host Big Tigger that he is not a homosexual because he is attracted to "all women".

In a separate radio interview with Claudia Jordan - host of The Morning Rush With Claudia on 105.7 in Dallas - Yoba took it a step further, saying, "I love women with breasts and penises."

During the same interview, Yoba, 55, denied paying a teenage transgender for sex 20 years ago. Both interviews are posted below.

Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan

Demetria McKinney, left, and Claudia Jordan are being recruited to pump life into the stale Real Housewives of Atlanta TV series, according to blogger ATLien of StraightfromtheA.com.

I've heard of Jordan (although I have no clue why she's famous). And while the name McKinney initially escaped me, I am reminded that she is the wonderful actress who played the drug-addled Janine in Tyler Perry's House of Payne.

Tiny Tonight - ATL Ladies Night Special

Tiny and her supporting cast of temporary hosts Tami Roman, Trina and Claudia Jordan, are back with a new season of VH1's Tiny Tonight. Tami, who will soon be unemployed when Basketball Wives is canceled, kicked things off by saying Atlanta women are the realest chicks she has ever met. Then the ladies dished haircare advice to the audience. The first two women to approach the mic were Caucasian women with real hair growing out of their scalps. The irony of two white women taking advice from black women who wish they had Caucasian hair is so profound.

Watch the video after the break.
