LaVar Ball gave his youngest son LaMelo a father-son pep talk about meeting groupies in the NBA.

LaVar warned his son that he will never meet a good, clean Christian woman during his NBA career.

He cautioned LaMelo about the trappings of success - and the traps that groupies set for rich young players like him.

"You'll never meet a good girl during your NBA career," LaVar said. "I hate to tell you, you gonna meet a h*e!"

LaVar made the statements during an appearance on the BroBible Endless Hustle podcast.

He told his son that most groupies will pretend they don't know who he is. But groupies always do their homework before meeting their prospective baby daddies.

"They know about you before you even get there. So, son, that's the bad part of the life you gon' get is you never gon' meet a good woman."

LaVar told his son that even if he meets a 30-year-old woman:

"You got to wonder why she's by herself at 30. There's something that's dangerous no matter how good they look. But, have a good time son. I feel bad for you, but hey, I love the fact you made it."

Memo to podcast hosts: Never ask Blac Chyna about Soulja Boy. She doesn't want to be reminded about her brief fling with the washed-up rapper. OK?

The West Coast socialite stormed out of an interview with Adam 22's "No Jumper" podcast after he asked her about her long forgotten romance with the retired rapper.

Soulja Boy and Chyna briefly "dated" for 3 months in 2019. If you recall, Chyna had a profitable side hustle charging washed-up rappers $25,000 a month to make them relevant again by "dating" her.

There was an audible sigh from Chyna after Adam asked her if she'd seen Soulja Boy recently. Adam noted the tension across the table and tried to switch up by asking her if she would ever record music with Soulja Boy.

At that point, Chyna stretched, yawned and announced: "I'm out."

"You're out?" Adam asked.

Chyna then told Adam he was "being weird."

"This is what the people want to hear about," he argued.

"Nah, but it's just weird. I'm out," Chyna repeated before dropping her headphones on the table and walking out.

"I'm waking up in the middle of the night, cause I'm worrying about something, or there's a heaviness. I try to make sure I get a workout in, although there have been periods throughout this quarantine, where I just have felt too low. You know, I've gone through those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don't feel yourself, and sometimes there's been a week or so where I had to surrender to that, and not be so hard on myself. And say, you know what, you're just not feeling that treadmill right now."

She added, "It is unusual, and it is, you know, it's a direct result of just being out of, out of body, out of mind. And spiritually, these are not, they are not fulfilling times, spiritually. You know, um, so I, I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression. Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting."

When asked how she deals with hr depression, Obama said, "My spirit is lifted when I'm feeling healthy when I'm surrounded by good people. I reach out to my family, and to my friends, even in this time of quarantine. You know, I fought to continue to find a way to stay connected to the people in my life who bring me joy, and my girlfriends, my husband, my kids; it's the small things."

She continued: "It's the small rituals. For me, there is no magic to it, but it is effort because you have to recognize that you're in a place, a bad place, in order to get out of it. So you kind of have to sit in it for a minute, to know, oh oh, I'm feeling off. So now I gotta, I gotta feed myself with something better."

Obama is an unlicensed therapist who provides counseling sessions to her celebrity friends, such as rapper Common.

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris took a lot of heat for his old fashioned comments about his teenage daughter's virginity. The doting dad sparked a frenzy on social media when he revealed he accompanies his 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah, to a gynecologist to make sure her hymen is intact.

The 39-year-old rap mogul described a typical gynecologist visit with his daughter.

"So we'll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk. And the doctor is maintaining a high level of professionalism. 'Well you know sir, in order to share information…' I say 'Deyjah they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you wouldn't want me to know? Okay. See doc, ain't no problem.'"

T.I. made the comments during a recent "Ladies Like Us" podcast hosted by Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham. The hosts made light of T.I.'s comments, which they later apologized for.

In a lengthy Instagram post on Thursday Mandi and Moham apologized for their "knee jerk" reaction to the "uncomfortable topic" of virginity.

"To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of Ladies Like Us, we want to start off by saying that we sincerely apologize for our knee jerk reaction," they wrote. "We were completely caught off guard/shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment. The comments that were made and the reaction that followed are not in any way a reflection of our personal views on the topic. We support and love Women and feel that their bodies are theirs to do as they wish. There was absolutely no ill intent towards any party involved & feel deeply awful about the entire incident."

"You all can quote me on this a couple of years down the line," Chance the Rapper said. "I think Trump is going to win again at the next election because he's got the biggest base."

"He does. I believe it," said Cardi B, citing the passion of Trump supporters.

"I really hate to say it, but sometimes I do believe that Trump will be winning," Cardi added. The 27-year-old rapper noted that none of the Democratic candidates have achieved the level of support that Trump has among his loyal base.

"Just because due to the fact that every single time I don't see nobody saying they love a Democratic candidate," she said. "There's no candidate that people are saying like we love, we want them to win.

"A lot of people vote with feelings in America and a lot of their feelings is racism and religion," she added.

Cardi is a vocal supporter of independent Bernie Sanders who recently suffered a heart attack that may limit his appearances on the campaign trail.

President Trump won a small victory on Tuesday when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced she will not hold a floor vote to authorize an official impeachment inquiry.

"There is no requirement that we have a vote and so at this time we will not be having a vote," Pelosi said in a press briefing following a meeting with House Democrats on Tuesday.

Trump came under fire by the Democrats for asking a foreign power to investigate corruption by presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, who is accused of using his father's position as vice president to accept millions of dollars from foreign powers. A practice known as "influence peddling."

Political analysts predicted the Democrats would not follow through with the impeachment inquiry into Trump, since it would cause a distraction for Joe Biden and the other Democratic candidates on the campaign trail.
