She explained he'd undergone a similar surgical procedure in the past and spent just over two weeks as an inpatient.

She said at the time:

"He's in the hospital. He's been in the hospital, tomorrow it'll be a week.

"I'm sure he'll be home in about a week or so. He had to have a surgery, (because) his cancer did return. He's had this surgery before and he was in the hospital for about 15 days."

The 53-year-old reality star admitted it is a "difficult" time for her, and her 66-year-old husband is battling a debilitating wasting syndrome called cachexia.

Cachexia is characterized by significant muscle loss, weight loss, fatigue, nausea, poor appetite, and decreased quality of life.

Weight loss and muscle loss caused by cachexia can not be regained.

Speaking in an Instagram Live with The Jasmine Brand, NeNe said:

"He's super small. If you've ever been around somebody who's had cancer before, he's different. He's different.

"I'd love for everybody to pray for Gregg, that would be beautiful. Pray for his strength. And pray for me, too."

The couple married in 1997 but divorced in 2011, only to get back together and re-marry in 2013.

Tennessee Titans star Julio Jones (right) and former NFL wide receiver Roddy White (left) are among the defendants in a lawsuit filed by a cannabis company.

The former Atlanta Falcons teammates and their co-defendants are accused of alleged fraud and money laundering allegations, according to court papers obtained by the Tennessean.

Genetixs cannabis company claims that Jones, White and others sold around $3 million per month in cannabis since March and kept all the profits for themselves.

The lawsuit alleges the defendants illegally managed and operated Genetixs' cannabis facility, and failed to report weed sales since March 2021.

Genetixs estimates about $3 million in cannabis was sold illegally by the defendants who then kept the profits for themselves.

According to the Tennessean newspaper:

"Jones and White, who were teammates with the Falcons from 2011 to 2015, are accused of colluding with John Van Beek and his son, Shaun Van Beek, to run a black-market cannabis operation through the Genetixs facility. Jones and White had invested in Genetixs through White's SLW Holdings, per the documents."

Former President Donald Trump's transgender joke about LeBron James drew outrage and criticism from LGBT+ groups.

Trump made the remark during a "Rally to Protect Our Elections" in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday.

He mused about signing male-to-female transgender players if he coached women's basketball.

Trump joked that the Los Angeles Lakers star could "get the operation" to change his sex in order to compete in women's basketball.

"If I were a coach, I wouldn't be talking to too many women as we know women," he said. "I'd be getting some of these people that [believe] they're 'women.'"

He continued:

"Somebody said that if LeBron James ever decided to get the operation, how would he be on the court? How would he be?

"LeBron James, you can have him. Did you see the [NBA] ratings that were terrible? They went up after his team was defeated."

James was a vocal anti-Trump critic while the former president was in office.

Trump called James "racist" and "divisive" after the NBA star tweeted a response to the police killing of Ohio teenager Ma'Khia Bryant in April.

Serial killer Rodney James Alcala, who appeared as a contestant on television game show The Dating Game, has died at age 77.

Alcala was a contestant on the popular TV game show in 1978. At the time he had already murdered 5 females.

Alcala won the competition, but his 'date' Cheryl Bradshaw refused to go out with him, because she found him to be "creepy".

Alcala was convicted of the 1979 kidnapping and murder of 12-year-old Robin Samsoe and sent to Death Row in Orange County in 1980. But that conviction was overturned in 1984 by the California Supreme Court, and Alcala was granted a new trial.

In 1986, he was sentenced to death for the Samsoe murder, but later granted a third trial. He was indicted for the murders of Samsoe and four other women with the help of DNA technology.

By 2010, Alcala had been convicted on five counts of first-degree murder. In 2012, he was extradited to New York for the 1971 murder of Cornelia Crilley and the 1977 murder of Ellen Jane Hover. He pleaded guilty to those charges and in 2013 was sentenced in New York to 25 years to life.

In 2016, Wyoming prosecutors charged Alcala with the murder of pregnant Christine Ruth Thornton. He was also linked to other murders in Los Angeles and Marin County in California; Seattle, Washington; New York; New Hampshire, and Arizona.

Spectrum News 1 released a statement after one of its female reporters complained about harassment on the job.

Brianna Hamblin, a news reporter for Spectrum News 1 in Rochester, New York, took to social media to slam the sexual harassment she receives from men while doing live remotes.

She shared a video that showed her discomfort as two men made remarks to her before she went live on camera.

A Black man said "you look nice by the way" to Hamblin as he walked by. She responded "thank you" before looking down at her cellphone.

Then a white man approached her and asked why she was standing in front of a camera. She told him to watch the news to find out.

He hurled crude remarks at her as he walked away, including "you're sexy as f***" - to which Hamblin said "oh my god".

Her cameraman, Scott Barstow, did nothing to stop the harassment.

Hamblin captioned the video:

"Being hit on and harassed as a woman, especially as a woman reporter out in the field, happens so often you learn how to roll with it or ignore it. This time it happened to be recorded only seconds before my hit. There are A LOT of things wrong with this."

The video went viral late Friday, garnering 3 million views by early Saturday.

Many Twitter users sympathized with Hamblin and suggested she find another job if she feels unsafe.

Spectrum News said in a statement provided to Mediaite:

"We are glad that Brianna wasn't alone in the face of such adversity and we've never been more proud of her. She handled the situation impeccably, remaining calm and professional throughout. We want our employees to feel safe and are constantly working towards achieving that goal."

According to sources, Hamblin is on desk duty while the news station works on a safe and supportive workplace plan for her.

Brianna Hamblin has a problem most women would envy: she is blessed with striking beauty and light eyes that make her irresistible to men.

Hamblin's beauty is a blessing and a curse. She complains that she is constantly getting hit on by men at work in the field.

Hamblin is a reporter for Spectrum Local News in Rochester, NY, formerly CBS19.

Despite not dressing provocatively, and not wearing too much makeup, Hamblin is constantly getting hit on.

She took to Twitter to explain her dilemma:

"Being hit on and harassed as a woman, especially as a woman reporter out in the field, happens so often you learn how to roll with it or ignore it. This time it happened to be recorded only seconds before my hit. There are A LOT of things wrong with this."

The video, which includes profanity, is going viral on Twitter.

Hamblin gets cat calls from men even though her cameraman, Scott Barstow, is standing right there.

Scott empathized with Hamblin.

Black Americans expressed their frustration on social media after House Speaker agreed with Pres. Joe Biden saying "the Latino community is the future of America."

Pelosi made the statement during her weekly press conference on Thursday, July 22.

"Well, you want to talk politics? Yeah, obviously the Latino community is the future of America," Pelosi said. She then praised the congressional Hispanic caucus for going door-to-door to get out the vote for Biden in the presidential election.

Black Twitter was not happy.

One Twitter user wrote:

"Thank you to the Hispanic Caucus for proving to me that Latino issues take precedence over Black issues in America."

Another user tweeted:

"Damn. Talk about benign neglect. Shameful. Yet they depend on Blacks to get them in office. We are now relegated to 4th class citizenship."

And a third person wrote:

"They have to since Latinos don't blindly vote for them 90% every election. They have to work for they're votes so they are. Meanwhile they don't have to do anything for the Black vote."

No one could believe it at first: Shaun King deleted his Twitter after weeks of brutal taunting by Black Twitter.

King announced he was deleting his Twitter app to spend time with his family.

But his followers claim he is on the run because he's in trouble with the law.

King was accused of raising funds for Black men killed by white police, but the money never made it to the victim's families.

Then Samaria Rice, the mother of Tamir Rice, dragged King and reminded him of his Caucasian bloodline.

Tamir is the 12-year-old Cleveland boy who was shot and killed by police for playing with a toy gun in 2014.

Rice slammed King for using her dead son's name to enrich himself.

"Personally I don't understand how you sleep at night," she said. "I never gave you permission to raise nothing."

She added: "As a white man acting black you are an imposter that can not be trusted."

Rice's allegations opened the door for Black Twitter to drag King up and down his timeline. The comments were brutal, and King deleted his Twitter account a few weeks later.

Check out some of the responses below:

"You're OK. You're not going to – you're not going to get Covid if you have these vaccinations... If you're vaccinated, you're not going to be hospitalized, you're not going to be in the ICU unit, and you're not going to die."

According to reports, 99% of all patients currently hospitalized with Covid are unvaccinated.

But the percentage of "breakthrough" cases among the fully vaccinated is rising.

WSB-TV news anchor Fred Blankenship and his entire family contracted Covid-19 despite being fully vaccinated and quarantining.

The well-liked Atlanta newsman suffered difficulty breathing and a temporary loss of taste and smell. He announced his symptoms in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

"Breakthrough positives as they are known are very real," he wrote. "I thought because I was fully vaccinated the symptoms would be mild. They were not."

However, Blankenship said despite his symptoms, his doctor told him it could've been a lot worse if he had not gotten the vaccine.

"My doctor told me the fact that I got the vaccination and stayed in relatively good shape kept me out of the hospital. It's been a big reminder that health is the true wealth."
