Gabrielle Union thanked social media fans for cheering her up after she lost her lucrative gig as a judge on NBC's America's Got Talent last week.

Lovebscott.com first reported that Gabrielle and fellow new judge Julianne Hough would not be returning to the popular show after just one season, leaving fans to speculate over the reason for her dismissal.

Following reports of a "toxic" atmosphere on set regarding "racism" and "sexism", VAriety.com reported that the 47-year-old actress was offended by staffers complaints about her ethnic hairstyles.

Union took to Twitter on Wednesday to thank fans for their continued support, saying she was "lost" and all "alone" after being let go from her job.

"So many tears, so much gratitude. THANK YOU! Just when you feel lost, adrift, alone... you got me up off the ground. Humbled and thankful, forever," she tweeted.

While the mother-of-one and stepmother of four didn't address the NBC show directly, she went on to like a tweet from a reporter who mentioned she'd been "fired" from the franchise.

Union spoke out after her retired NBA star husband Dwyane Wade shared his support for his wife by suggesting network bosses tried to pin a drop in viewership on the new judges.

"Men lie, Women lie, numbers don't," he tweeted, quoting lyrics by rapper Jay-Z, on Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Wade, 37, expressed surprise upon learning that Union was fired from the show. They thought for certain that being LGBT allies would elevate her status in Hollywood.

"Over this past year I've been approached by many people saying that my wife @itsgabrielleu is the main reason they've started watching #AGT or that they love her insight and sincerity on the show. So when i got the news that my wife was being fired - my first question was obviously why!? Iam (sic) still waiting on a good answer to that question. But if anyone knows @itsgabrielleu or have heard of her you know she's an advocate for our community and culture."

Gabrielle Union was let go as a judge on America's Got Talent after she made one too many complaints to bosses about the show's "toxic culture" on the set, according to WENN.com.

The outspoken 47-year-old actress served as a judge on the competition reality TV show this year, alongside Julianne Hough, who was also let go from the show in November.

According to Variety.com, numerous incidents left Union uncomfortable - such as when guest judge Jay Leno allegedly made a racially insensitive joke while visiting the show's offices.

"Leno made a crack about a painting on display in a hallway of the show's Simon Cowell, surrounded by his dogs. Leno joked that the pets looked like something one would find 'on the menu at a Korean restaurant'," according to four people who were present at the time of Leno's wisecrack.

According to Variety, Union asked producers to report the incident to Human Resources but, following a conversation with a NBC executive, the matter was dropped.

Other incidents Union complained about included one involving a white male contestant, who wowed the audience with his quick changes between costumes. At one point, he donned dark make-up to look like the American singer Beyonce - which angered Union and caused her to object to the contestant being in the show.

The contestant was apparently still allowed to audition, but the audition was cut before the show aired.

The Variety report also claims that both Union and Hough (pictured) were consistently given "excessive notes on their physical experience," which had a big impact on their morale - particularly for Hough.

However, Hough, who wants to keep working in Hollywood, denied the claims in a statement to E! News, telling the outlet: "I had a wonderful time on America's Got Talent, I loved working with the cast, crew and producers. I am happy to continue my working relationship with NBC."

Meanwhile, NBC hit back at the report in their own statement, which read: "America’s Got Talent has a long history of inclusivity and diversity in both our talent and the acts championed by the show.

"The judging and host line-up has been regularly refreshed over the years and that is one of the reasons for AGT’s enduring popularity. NBC and the producers take any issues on set seriously."

Union has yet to publicly respond to the allegations.

R&B star Omarion, pictured right with ex-fiancee Apryl Jones, has no qualms about his baby mama dating his former B2K bandmate Lil Fizz (inset). Omarion, 35, insists everyone has the right to be happy, including his baby mama.

The "Ice Box" singer split from Apryl Jones in 2016, and they remain cordial friends. Apryl recently made headlines after embarking on a new romance with promiscuous reality star Fizz, real name Dreux Frederic, 33.

The budding relationship has been well-documented on their reality show, Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood, leading many viewers to criticize the pair for apparently disrespecting Omarion, and Fizz's ex-girlfriend, fellow cast member Moniece Slaughter.

Omarion, who shares five-year-old son Megaa and three-year-old daughter A'mei with 32-year-old Apryl, has addressed the controversy, making it clear that he doesn't care what she does.

"I don't feel no ways, I don't feel any way about it," he told VladTV. "I think that if they're happy, then they should be happy."

One thing Omarion does take issue with is how the personal drama surrounding Jones and Fizz's romance has been played up for clicks and views. "I think they should change the narrative, though," he stated.

"She's still the mother of my children. When something affects her, it affects my kids, and that affects me. But what she does is, you know, live your life! I think people should do whatever makes them happy."

Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star Cynthia Bailey's daughter Noelle Robinson came out as sexually fluid, which basically means she is unsure about her sexual identity.

According to Rhymeswithsnitch.com, Noelle came out to her mother while the Bravo cameras were rolling.

Noelle, 20, moved to California to be closer to her mother, who is divorced from Peter Thomas. During a conversation, Cynthia, 51, mentions Noelle has her pick of the cute boys hanging around. But Noelle corrects her and reveals she goes both ways.

During the ensuing conversation Noelle explains that she is "fluid", which is another way of saying she flip flops because she is confused about her sexuality.

Some say Noelle's newfound "fluid" sexuality is manufactured for reality TV. Lending credence to the theory is the fact that Noelle has a close bond with her father, the world's most handsome actor, Leon.

Many wonder how Noelle could be confused about her sexuality if she had a close bond with her father. That leaves her mother as the culprit.

President Donald Trump is looking ahead to the day he leaves office - whether he is impeached or he completes his 2nd term.

Feeling nostalgic, Trump recently bragged about his reality TV competition show Apprentice, saying the show was "the greatest thing reality television has ever seen," according to the Daily Beast blog.

Sources told the Daily Beast Trump wants to host another Apprentice series when he leaves office, and he has been in talks with producer Mark Burnett about a "politics-themed" reality TV show.

"There have been several discussions between Burnett and Trump about 'The Apprentice: White House,'" according to the Beast's sources. "It is something Burnett thinks could be a money-spinner and Trump is very keen on doing."

The Apprentice was one of America's most popular reality TV shows over its fifteen season run on NBC. Trump was the show's host for 14 seasons. The show, which was billed as "The Ultimate Job Interview", was featured in various formats including a Celebrity Apprentice.

Bravo TV

The Real Housewives of Atlanta returned for season 12 on Sunday, Nov. 3. In case you missed it, the middle aged cast - Porsha Williams, 36, Kandi Burruss, 43, Kenya Moore, 48, Eva Marcille, 35, and Cynthia Bailey, 51, continues the same reality TV formula that helps them to stay relevant.

This week's episode is entitled, "The Moore the Merrier" to promote the return of the second eldest cast member, Kenya Moore. The former Miss America, who was born under the Aquarius sign, welcomed her first child, a daughter named Brooklyn, in November of 2018. Kenya and the baby's father, Marc Daly, separated in early 2019.

Michelle Brown, of StraightfromtheA.com, recapped the season premiere.

Michelle says Bravo TV's producers reminds the viewers of Kenya's history of failed relationships and fake boyfriends, including Walter Jackson and Matt Jordan.

Michelle writes:

Kenya relishes in her new role as mom to her daughter Brooklyn, while struggling to maintain her long distance marriage to Marc. Porsha’s relationship with Dennis hits a rough patch after he betrays her trust. With a new baby on the way, Eva is feeling the pressure to find the perfect house for her expanding family. An unexpected guest shows up at Kandi’s restaurant to reveal some shocking news regarding Dennis. Meanwhile, Cynthia’s obsession with wanting to get engaged reaches new heights. Kenya throws a coming out party to introduce the ladies to Brooklyn, but the celebration soon takes a left turn when Eva makes an off-handed comment that rubs Kenya the wrong way.

According to the judge, the restraining order was denied because the matter was already addressed in a lawsuit filed by Lozada against Chijindu earlier this month.

Law enforcement and the courts are wary of reality stars abusing the system for their manufactured TV drama.

According to TheJasmineBrand, the two women have argued on social media for months.

Lozada took legal action, filing a lawsuit against Chijundu for defamation.

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."
