"I don't know why you guys didn't warn me about these liberal agenda networks," Stanton-King said during a livestream after taping Dr. Phil's show.

"The whole show ended up about me being a Black Trump supporter with conservative values," Stanton-King complained.

The mother of four was offended when Phil brought out a male-to-female trans to tell her how to be a better parent.

"First of all sir, you don't even have children... yet you want to tell me what I need to do in regards to my child. Dr. Phil didn't offer any solution to our problem whatsoever!"

She then launched into a profanity-laced tirade against Dr. Phil, his wife, the other guest, and Dr. Phil's staff.

Fan favorites Phaedra Parks and Sheree Whitfield are set to return to Real Housewives of Atlanta next season.

Phaedra, an Atlanta attorney, was asked to leave the show after it was revealed that she told Porsha Williams that Kandi Burruss planned to drug and rape her.

Sheree was sent packing years ago due to a lack of a believable storyline and personality conflicts on the set.

However, the once popular reality TV show is bleeding viewers and Bravo is desperate to stop the bleeding.

The latest season averaged low ratings despite the #Strippergate scandal.

That left the show's producers with no choice but to bring back two of the show's more popular former cast members, Phaedra and Sheree.

According to The Sun, Phaedra's upcoming appearance on "Watch What Happens Live" may not be her last on the series.

Question: Would you watch RHOA again if Phaedra and Sheree returned to the series?

Michelle Obama has a homosexual puppet sidekick to "inspire” LGBT+ children on her upcoming children's food show.

In the new Netflix series "Waffles + Mochi," the former first lady is joined by an effeminate puppet sidekick, Busy the Bee, to help Mrs. Obama teach children how to eat healthy.

Jonathan Kidder, the puppeteer behind Busy the Bee, makes sure that children understand Busy the Bee is LGBT+.

Kidder told the Daily Beast blog that making children aware of the puppet's same-sex proclivities is important because he wants to use his character to inspire more LGBT+ kids.

"They never said overtly 'we need you to be as gay as possible please'," Kidder said. "But I got the sense that they liked that I brought this diversity to the mix."

Kidder is one of children's puppeteering only openly gay creators.

He joked that "all puppets are a little bit gay" and he hoped to bring more diversity to Waffles + Mochi by channelling his own "dry, gay sass" personality and sexuality through Busy.

He said his job was to let Michelle Obama's sidekick "be colorful and let my rainbow out through him."

American children identifying as LGBT+ has increased significantly since Michelle's husband, Barack Obama, was president.

CBS

Production of Queen Latifah's new drama series "The Equalizer" has been suspended due to a positive Covid-19 test.

Filming was halted and the producers asked those in close contact with the infected individual to self-isolate, according to Deadline.

The Equalizer stars Queen Latifah, real name Dana Owens, as a tough-as-nails vigilante based on the character played by Edward Woodward on TV and Denzel Washington on the big screen.

Latifah said playing the part of a Black female superhero was "necessary" in the face of social, racial, and financial inequalities.

"The only reservation I had was Denzel," Latifah told USA Today. "I had to figure out how to create a character that was going to be different from his and obviously not get in his lane, but not like the original, either."

She said she liked the idea of "delivering some justice (as) a Black woman on network television. I thought the idea of it was incredible and necessary and fun."

"When we started this project, little did we know that we would face a pandemic; we would face such amazing divisiveness in this country; we would have to deal with a real, real hard look at the racial inequities, of the social inequities, of the financial inequities of this country," said the multi-millionaire actress.

"We just didn't know that, God, would we need to see justice. There's just so many different things that are going on that made this show timely."

The series debuted after the Super Bowl on CBS on Sunday, Feb. 7, to mixed reviews. Some viewers were critical of the producers for casting former rapper Queen Latifah as single mom Robyn McCall, an "Overweight 50 year-old pre-diabetic woman who beats up dudes."

One viewer wrote "This series is (like Batwoman) a glaring example of that strategy. Female black hero against bad white men. Male is bad. Men are evil!"

Despite the criticism, 20.4 million people tuned in to watch "The Equalizer" on Sunday night. The show was the top-rated TV series of the week.

Netflix has ordered an animated musical kids series executive produced by actor-rapper Christopher "Ludacris" Bridges.

The musical kids series, titled "Karma's World," was inspired by Bridges' eldest daughter, 19-year-old Karma, and her educational website.

The series follows a fictional character, 10-year-old Karma Grant, who is described as "an aspiring musical artist and rapper with big talent and an even bigger heart."

The series will feature original music that tackles issues that affect young Black girls, including "Self-esteem, body positivity, discrimination, creativity, expressing emotions, friendship, family, leadership, celebrating differences and more," according to Netflix.

Bridges, pictured with Karma in 2007, said the project was a long time in the making, and he hopes to leave a legacy for his daughters.

"I've had a lot of accomplishments in my life, but everything that I've experienced seems to have led up to this point to where I can leave a legacy for all my daughters," Bridges said in a statement.

"Karma's World is one of those legacies. I hope this series will show kids that there are many ways to overcome difficult situations. This show is going to move hip hop culture forward, and show young girls that they have the power to change the world. This project has been a long time in the making and I can't wait to bring Karma's World to the entire world."

In addition to Karma, Bridges, 43, is dad to daughters Cai Bella Bridges, 6, and Cadence, 5. Bridges' wife, Eudoxie, is pictured in 2017 holding Cai, while posing with Karma (right) and a young relative (center).

Jeremy Tardy, who appeared in the first 3 seasons of Netflix's hit series "Dear White People," has exited the show amid allegations of racial discrimination.

Tardy, 29, announced he was leaving the show on Twitter.com on Friday. "Unfortunately I will not be joining Netflix's Dear White People for its fourth and final season due to my experience with Lionsgate and their practices of racial discrimination," Tardy wrote in a series of several tweets.

Tardy claims Lionsgate negotiated raises with his white co-stars, but ignored his counter offer for a raise.

"After being offered to return for several episodes my team was notified that our counter offer would not be considered and that the initial offer was the 'best and final.'"

Tardy said he and other actors "banded together" in late August to reject their offers from Lionsgate. He said Lionsgate negotiated higher offers with white actors which led to them taking the deals before everyone else had received a "fair and suitable negotiation."

"We were all aware of the notorious pay disparities between people of color and our white colleagues on Netflix and Lionsgate shows; so this made it blatantly obvious."

He continued: "These companies have recently released statements and even donations in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. I am calling out their shameful practices of discrimination and racial inequality with regard to how they have historically undervalued and lowballed people of color."

The ladies recall memories of the series and their experiences.

"It was really special to see a story about four Black women, all whose stories were about mostly each other and not about the man they were pursuing," Ross, now the star of ABC's "Black-ish," tells USA TODAY. "And at the core of the show was about the relationship between these women, and how to be a friend."

Brooks said emotions varied as the cast tackled the show's serious issues: colorism, mental health, AIDS, interracial dating, celibacy, infidelity, and being biracial.

"It seemed very novel," said Brooks (2nd from right), "In actuality, we as women of color, we do these things every day. We have varied emotions. … And I just think that it was beautiful to see Mara sort of unfold and introduce that to pop culture because you hadn't seen it" before.

Jenifer, 63, and Laurence, 59, play the parents of Anthony Anderson's character Dre on Black-ish. Tracee Ellis Ross plays Dre's wife, Rainbow.

Lewis will serve as executive producer of the show.

According to a script teaser, Old-ish "will follow Ruby and Earl as they give love a second chance. When they move to a rapidly gentrifying neighborhood of L.A., they'll meet characters who represent the old and new faces of the community as they try to make it work as a married couple. Again."

Laurence has been a recurring character on the show from the beginning, while Jenifer was promoted from a recurring role to series regular in season 2.

Old-ish will be the fourth installment in the franchise - Black-ish premiered in 2014 on ABC, Grown-ish premiered in 2018 on Freeform, and Mixed-ish premiered in 2019 on ABC.
