Some of you know Shelley Wynter and MalaniKai Massey as co-hosts of WSB Radio's "Word On the Street."

WSB Radio is giving the team a 90-day test run in Clark Howard's time slot now that he is ending his syndicated radio show at the end of the year.

"Word On the Street," which was heard on weekends, will air Monday through Friday from 10 p.m. to midnight. The 90-day test run starts on Jan. 4, 2021.

In addition to their weekend slot, Wynter and Massey also became the primary fill-in show for Von Haessler Doctrine mid-morning show and Mark Arum's evening show.

Wynter and Massey made the official announcement subbing in for Arum Wednesday, according to Radio & TV Talk. "Shelley and I are both overthinkers," said Massey, a New York native who has been doing radio for 2 decades including 92.9/Dave FM, 640/WGST-AM and Kiss 104.1. "We had to be told to just do what we do."

"We are so different but the same," Wynter said of his co-host, Massey. He hosted a show in the mid-2000s at news/talk 1380/WAOK-AM and more recently on the now-defunct Talk 106.7. He has only hosted solo before inviting Massey to be his co-host on "Word On the Street."

"I never thought I was funny," he said. But his humorous banter with Massey and the show's executive producers Scotty B and DJ Crystal is a large part of Word On the Street's appeal.

"It's a lot of fun. The hardest part is subjugating your ego, pushing your ego down to let someone into your world. Once we did that, that's when the magic really started," he said.

Wynter says he wants the show to be a bit like friends hanging out at a bar, which is similar to the way Arum approaches his show.

"We are just sharing beers and a pizza," Wynter said.

"A vegan pizza," Massey said.

"Listeners are at another table and chime in when they want to," Wynter added.

Ice T's wife Coco showed off her 'twerking' skills on the new daytime talk show 'The Real'. The show, which airs on FOX, is hosted by Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai, Adrienne Bailon, and Tamera Mowry. It's hard to ignore the show's similarities to 'The View'. But unlike the respectable ladies on 'The View', 'The Real' isn't above lowering their standards to boost their TV ratings. Many people think the dance craze 'twerking' is cute, but the only difference between a woman who twerks and a stripper is one of them gets paid to shake her azz and the other one doesn't. We have to do better.

    Earlier I posted an email from Cheryl Redmond, the mother of Zeboe Pullins' youngest children. Cheryl is a great example of a woman who holds her family together and stands by her man through thick and thin.

    But some women marry men for all the wrong reasons.

    Without singling out Tamar Braxton, some women confuse love for neediness. As children they didn't have a healthy, supportive relationship with their fathers, so they grow up looking for men to fulfill their unrealistic needs. These women are beautiful, seductive, lovable, possessive, and eventually they become very demanding.

    When these women find men like Vince (who has issues of their own), they form a sometimes destructive relationship that doesn't benefit either of them spiritually or mentally.

    There were some tense moments between the presidential debate rematch between President Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney at Hofstra University Tuesday. Governor Romney was concise and confident at the start of the debate, while Obama seemed anxious and fired up. The pressure was on and Obama appeared to rise to the occasion.

    There was a heated exchange between President Obama and Gov. Romney as the two men stood toe to toe over Obama's failure to drill for oil on federal land, thereby causing the price of oil to skyrocket.

    "You'll get your chance in a moment, I'm still speaking," said Romney at one point.

    The heated exchange sparked an explosion of tweets on, including the above tweet one from Tameka Raymond.

    Moderator Candy Crowley was totally incompetent, allowing Obama to completely dominate the debate with his constant interruptions. It's obvious who's corner Crowley was in tonight.

    When a black voter pointedly asked Obama what have you done for me? Obama responded, "These last 4 years haven't been so good for you," without adequately explaining why he failed to keep promises he made to the people who elected him president.

  • Still basking in the success of her hit reality TV series, Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta,' producer Mona Scott-Young reportedly began shooting her newest scripted series titled 'Gossip Girls,' on location in New York. The new series reportedly stars radio jocks Angie Martinez, Miss Info, Angela Yee, and blogger Necole Bitchie.

    This blogger was in consideration as a cast member as well, but I politely declined. (Read the email they sent me after the break.)

    The cast is an enigma. These women don't gossip; they just say whatever their celebrity friends want them to say. Miss Info is a sweetheart and a cutie pie, but who the hail cares about Angie Martinez or Necole Bitchie?

    In the upcoming episode of 'Tamar & Vince' on WEtv a relaxing trip to Hawaii takes a turn for the worst as Tamar and Vince come to blows over unresolved issues.

    Word on the curb is that Tamar's sudden change of attitude is turning off even her closest friends. "People don't like her anymore," said one industry source who asked to remain anonymous. "She only hangs out with celebrities now," such as Toya [Wright] and Toya's husband, Memphitz.

    The friend said Tamar hounded her husband Vince into signing Memphitz's new kiddie artist, Key Swag, in an effort to appease Toya.

    Tamar is aware that she is not very popular amongst the Hollywood elite, which is why she is throwing Vince's money in everyone's faces.

    A new episode of Tamar and Vince airs Thursday at 9pm on WE tv. Watch the sneak peek below.

    Whitney Houston's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, 19, is set to star in her own reality TV show titled "The Houstons On Our Own," on Lifetime television on Oct. 24. The reality show will follow Bobbi Kristina's life after Whitney's sudden death of an accidental drowning earlier this year.

    Also appearing in the program is Bobbi K.'s longtime boyfriend, Nick Gordon; her grandmother, Cissy Houston, Pat Houston, who is married to Whitney Houston's brother, Gary; and Pat's daughter. According to a source close to the show's production company, Whitney never officially adopted Nick Gordon as her son, which dispels the stories about Bobbi K. and Nick engaging in an incestuous relationship.

    Pat Houston described the reality show in a statement released earlier this year: "I have been working with Simmons-Shelley over the past few years developing a project suitable for myself and our family," Pat Houston said. "The unexpected passing of Whitney certainly affects the direction of the show. However, it is my hope that others will be enlightened as they watch our family heal and move forward."

    Bobbi Kristina made her acting debut on Tyler Perry's 'For Better or Worse' in July.

    Watch the sneak peak of 'Houston's On Our Own' after the break.

    Actress Vivica A. Fox is still looking for a man one year after her very public breakup from Atlanta club promoter Omar "Slimm" White, whom she dated for a little over 2 years.

    Fox tells Hollywood Live's Billy Bush and Kit Hoover that she's not opposed to taking applications from single men. But she said her ideal man has to have a job. "I am very happily single," says Fox, who put extra emphasis on the "very happily" part.

    I'm gonna wait for Mr. Right to come along, and take my time this time. I'm enjoying having a little bit of just me time," said Fox, who has a preference for younger, virile hunky studs.

    Last night's episode of T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle focused on health, fitness and fads. The Harris family patriarch, Tip "T.I." Harris, decided his family was eating too much junk food and not exercising enough. So Tip put his children on a healthy exercise regimen involving aerobic and non-aerobic exercises for kids of all ages.

    The episode also called attention to a dangerous fad -- specifically colonics, or colon cleansing. Tameka "Tiny" Harris' hair stylist Shekinah subjected herself to a colonic for laughs, but it is not a laughing matter when colonics introduce deadly bacteria into the colon or rupture the colon.
