Rita Ora in NYC

America's sweetheart Rita Ora attended the VH1 America's Next Top Model Premiere Party at Vandal in New York City. She is the new Tyra Banks as host of cycle 23 of ANTM. Rita was the talk of the evening. She stunned in a sequined dress and matching pumps. It's a far cry from the days when Rita was known as an industry trampoline. Reports linked her to Justin Bieber, Wiz Khalifa, Rob Kardashian, Chris Brown, and the list goes on and on.

    I was at Wendy Williams and heard her speaks for the first time. She seems to have that Tyra Banks very open attitude. Wendy fell in love with her as she is not afraid to say what's on her mind. We will now hear from her every day in NY now...

    Mack Wilds is a cutie. Didn't like the Breaks but I'll support when it comes back on off the strength of him. Cardi B sister is trying a little too hard.

    Me too Chile especially season 23

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    I appreciate EJ covering up his thigh meat. Thanks, bruh. Why does Mr. Roach's sweatpants look like he picked them up from Wal-Mart? His whole look is confusing me. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c50c32f9b6b4d56850deb1d94c9e543ecea98e5d463633670c4cbac16c246c6d.gif

  • Sucker Free

    I thought those were their nicknames... cardi's real name is Belcalis

  • sunni_daze

    America’s sweetheart Rita Ora<<<<<< pure 100% comedy.

  • Sucker Free

    Cardi put herself on hun...she is an Instagram star

  • https://www.styleseat.com/Bellaxpress Danay Helena

    Instagram and real life are two different things tho..

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Still running strong I see

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Sandra is finally confirming Rita's hoe fax huh? A lot of celebs need Rita's stylist STAT. Not pointing any elbows but Kelly Rowland's dress the other day wasn't even cute enough to be a dish towel?

  • Sucker Free

    Real life noticed her Instagram...she got mad followers...like 5 million plus

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    And it looks like he helmed them ?

  • iWasteTime

    Is law the dude on the beach in Miami with Karreache ?

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Right?!?! I'm all types of confused.

  • https://www.styleseat.com/Bellaxpress Danay Helena

    First off...IG FOLLOWERS can be bought, I sell them. Secondly, You missing my point. The point is ppl with real life talent and ppl who went to school for thier art are being passed over for these IG stars...no arguement here, just stating the obvious. Keep following her. I heard she's entertaining.?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Cardi has a free spirit personality ... Folks like free spirits I know I do ...

  • bemetoo

    Ej has a very big jaw...again that's one uglyass sissy

  • Sucker Free

    Exactly ?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    He has come a long way from the studded red bottoms that were shooting studs when he walked. U memba the ones that had a natural gangsta lean before his surgery

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    She took what she loves to do and capitilzed on it... Ijs ... Imo smart move ....

  • MistaO

    Cardi is the type of woman that is a head shaker in a mans eyes. Minus the hoeism, stripper stuff and all that comes with, she mighta made some man a good wife...?

  • Irony

    I'm glad that EJ pushed its chest up. If you're going to dress in women's clothing do all the necessities: tuck, have you breasticles lifted, and shave!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Because its all about popularity these days versus quality. Same applies to the music industry. We're in a different era ....sadly

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    A lot of people in school currently now are there to increase income right ... You will be surprised how many don't enjoy that shyt ... Cardi did hers different and enjoying herself ... I see no problem with that... Went to school 9 years got 3 degrees and then some and guess who don't use not one degree to increase my income ... Muah... When you do what your passionate about focus that energy there ... Expect results... Cardi B results... This girl doing her ... Her way... SMH

  • https://www.styleseat.com/Bellaxpress Danay Helena

    You right, I'm not on IG personally, I have it for my business. I'll stick to FB.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    The runover shoes lol

  • Sucker Free

    First off...I don't follow anyone I'm not on IG...just saw a couple videos...she makes me laugh and that's all...

    Making people laugh is a real life talent and she's got IT...

  • B.Sweet has e-white privilege

    Rita must be falling from grace if her hoe fax is getting soft pulls.

  • Low E. TUH!

    I LIKE CARDI'S LOOK...MACK IS MACK...I GOT NOTHING ELSE! I'VE JUST BEEN MADE SICK TO MY DAMN STOMACH SO I'LL CATCH YALL MONDAY.

  • klwbaby
  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Hollers..

  • https://www.styleseat.com/Bellaxpress Danay Helena

    I'm not talking about degrees, I'm talking about ARTISTRY...ppl with actual talent. Ppl go to school to become actors, dancers, producers ect...we living in a world now where everything is fleeting...hot today, not tomorrow. It's the way of the world, I get it. I still have an opinion about it tho. I love what I do and make great money doing it...didn't start off on the pole tho. Have a great day!?

  • Carolina Blue

    Cardi???????

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    Hennessy is Cardi's sister. Shes much more extroverted and eccentric than Cardi! Cardi has more siblings also but this one is destined To be a bigger star than any of them.
    Sandra I remember you doubted me on Cardi over Rita Ora, but watch she's gonna big... for evaaaaah! ?????

  • https://www.styleseat.com/Bellaxpress Danay Helena

    You got it boo...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    When you be yourself and not give a fawk what anyone thinks... People love that ... Who wouldn't ... It's realer than the ones putting on a fake persona ... Js ...people appreciate that... It doesn't matter if she is stripper or prostitute or educated etc... Lol folks a trip chile as if having a degree makes you better than the next ... Or smarter ...LMAO chile ... Can't hate on her one bit

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Me either lol my youngin said someone that was IG famous liked her pic and you would've thought she hit the lottery. Me: yeah whatever?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    hope ya feel better chile... lil J been sick...

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    Yup I agree. She was destined to be on. She did it all on her own... for years and have more ig followers than some of the hardworking women.

  • Carolina Blue

    And do

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    I'm just curious on the hard working women list. Please share your thoughts... ? ?

  • Carolina Blue

    Yes she does...???

  • https://www.styleseat.com/Bellaxpress Danay Helena

    Ppl forget that it's still a real world out there. I stopped liking IG when it became a haven for these new age escorts...?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Hilarious to me...

  • 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    I respect Cardi she true to herself... she say what she feel and ppl respect real and genuine ppl... and you right about the degrees its crazy how we go to school and still cant find a good job im on degree 4 and I hope that I can find a job I am passionate about soon....

  • i troll it like i see it

    EJ looks better than all of them!

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I agree but I have no clue who she is because I'm not social media driven. Not knocking her hustle just highlighting that social media is quicker to capitalize on. Its all about likes these days ...talent or not

  • Irony

    You may be meant to be more than in a "box." Keep trying your hand at different things.

  • klwbaby

    I watched the first 2 seasons of it, then I was over it. Besides the only pictures I like are taken by Olan Mills...https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e5e9bd90cff9f3454c63b3bfe4111a2caf2f8dad5ac425e768eb04140d9e700c.jpg

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    Fun fact:
    Since this is about vh1, imma segue into this future beef for ratings on lhhny. I didn't know that Remy was the chick juelz cheated on kimbella for. Wanted to actually leave kimbella for Remy. But way before poose he was the side nigglet. Kimbella had to call Remy and tell her to lay off her man. But who would take that squeaky voice seriously. I guess she didn't realize Remy damn near thisclose to being a killer.
    All four should have a confrontation soon: poose Remy juelz kimbella.

  • hotntot95

    Are those grey sweat pants??
    ...I like Cardi for some reason...I think it's the inner stripper in me...

  • Carolina Blue

    I like that about her

  • MystyBlu

  • Carolina Blue

    Gotta respect it

  • Carolina Blue

  • 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    Im def a think out the box type of person... seem like these days its who you know vs what you know with these companies and that is disheartening but I will not be defeated I will continue to look for something working with children that is where my heart lies :)

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Had no idea it was still on... Tyra did well creating this Show

  • hotntot95

    Yep. Her personality is magnetic.

  • Incog-knee-gress

    I want Rita mama to stop lying. She is too brown for the man she say is Rita daddy...for him to be her daddy.

  • Carolina Blue

    Same here. People get .mad when you can still be happy despite the fact that they think less of you. Their unhappy with themselves so they hate.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Ion know but she has a free spirit can't knock that ... No filter ...? ... I love no filter folks... Bout like old folks when they up in age lol.... The shyt that fly out their mouth ... Cause hunty I have true appreciation for some of shyt my dad be saying ... No filter at all

  • Carolina Blue

    Hell nah dubb. I got dibs on that. I think id fall in love with that ratchet...she looks soft

  • klwbaby

  • Sucker Free

    Yo...I have real tears at her observations ?

  • Carolina Blue

    You might not lik her the way i do though...?

  • Irony

    It's definitely more nepotistic than knowledge. But because you have knowledge you'll always thrive. Come on into education!?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This is very true ... What I say... Why be mad at them when you can go out here and do what you like as well... Makes no sense at this point now... Don't compare titles and shyt ... Pointless as many folks I see cheating their way through college ... Which by the way ticked me back then... Lolol degrees etc ...?? just do what ya love to do

    Thanks Jen. People love titles but cant live up to em most times.

  • OrchidJones-Work for Money

    I give her madd credit. Lot of people clown her but she takes stuff on the chin and makes light of it. No shame in her. Unlike joseline who get fake lawyers to write letters on copy pasted letter heads to cease and desist. Foh.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Hennessy is Cardi's little sister. She needs to suck that gut in or not wear anything cropped.

  • harley_quinn2.0

    I think that is the plan and EJ's parents can buy Vogue magazine for him when he's ready to take over the fashion world.

    I remember when Remy was a stringers. I have no idea where those hips and ass came from!
