Wendy Williams celebrated her father's 91st birthday at his hi-rise condo in Florida. She posted two photos of her dad, former educator Thomas Williams, on her personal Instagram account.

She captioned the images: "Daddy's 91st birthday! Enjoying it in the most relaxing way possible."

The post follows a video she shared on her IG page on Wednesday, in which she is seen strolling on a beach on a cloudy, windy day near her winter home in Miami.

She captioned the video: "It's a beautiful morning!!" despite the wind whipping her hair.

"I wanna be all I can be and then get back to New York and get on down with The Wendy Williams Show," she said in the footage filmed by her son Kevin Hunter Jr.

But fans speculated that the video was a year old because she said her mother was in Florida. However, Wendy announced her mom's passing last year. Wendy also said she was 56 in the video.

"This video is old. She keeps referencing that she is 56 years old but she's actually 57," an IG user wrote.

However, Wendy's publicist told Page Six that she "simply misspoke," and meant her mother is buried in Florida. The rep also insisted the video was taped Wednesday morning.

A source told Page Six the weather in Miami was cloudy and windy Wednesday morning.

Wendy is still battling with Wells Fargo after the bank froze her account containing $3 million.

The bank took action after Wendy's former financial adviser said she was mentally unfit.

But the video shows Wendy is alert and oriented and appears to be of sound mind and body.

Kanye, also known as Ye, surprised his girlfriend, Julia, with diamonds and a baby Birkin. He then handed out Birkin bags to her well-heeled girlfriends. The bags retail for $25,000 to $250,000.

Video from the party circulating on social media shows the only Black woman empty handed while the other ladies posed with their Birkins.

Black Twitter suggested that Julia's only Black friend was left out of the gift giving because of the color of her skin.

According to Page Six, Julia's birthday dinner went down at new Midtown Chinese eatery Sei Less.

"There were some girls trying to get his attention... when Julia went to the bathroom," a source told Page Six.

Sources told the outlet the couple fled uptown "when they got a call from 2 Chainz, who was there dining with rapper Fabolous in a private dining room."

"It was just a random dinner that turned into a big night," the source said.

The "Halo" singer added:

"I admire and respect all of you and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. This is the first year that I really understand what it means to be alive and to live in the moment. It's the first time that I have an understanding of how fragile life truly is, how hard life can be at times, and therefore how important it is to stop and smell the roses during the good times.

"I thought I knew that at 21 or 30... but I didn't.

"The more mature I become, the more I understand and the deeper my joy grows. There's a freedom and liberation knowing that I've made it to the other side of my sacrifice. I'm finally giving myself permission to enjoy the seeds I've worked so hard to plant my whole life."

The "Lion King" star, pictured with daughter, Blue Ivy, then turned her attention to people who believe life is over at 40, stating, "This has absolutely been the best I've felt in my life. I'm so grateful to be GROWN, GROWN!"

She also addressed rumors that she is older than her stated age:

"Most of y'all met me when I was 15, and we have grown up together. You bring soooo much joy into my life. I hope my art can continue to bring a little joy into yours. I Love You Deep Deep Deep Deep Deep."

Parents are outraged after rapper T.I.'s 17-year-old son, King, shared a video featuring strippers at his birthday bash on his Instagram Story.

King is the son of rapper Tip "T.I." Harris, 40, and Xscape singer Tameka "Tiny" Harris, 45.

King, who has over 720K followers on Instagram, was featured on T.I. and Tiny's now-canceled reality TV series.

The aspiring rapper who goes by the stage name "Kid Saiyan" turned 17 on August 25. To celebrate, the youngster smoked marijuana while filming nude, gyrating strippers on his cell phone. The floor is littered with dollar bills.

The video is still live on Instagram despite the fact that he is underage and most of his followers are minors.

Parents complained that King exposed their children to adult situations by sharing the inappropriate video on his feed.

Parents say they have contacted child protective services to report the child smoking marijuana while nude strippers dance.

Many parents asked where are his parents, while others noted that King is his father's son.

Question: Would you allow your 17-year-old son to smoke weed and hire nude women to dance for him?

CAUTION: Video contains nudity. Viewer discretion is advised.

Kandi, a mother of three, captioned the photo gallery:

"Happy Birthday to my first born @rileyburruss! No matter how grown you get you're still my baby. I love you so much & Im proud of the woman you are becoming. I hope this year brings you happiness & a lot of "A's"!"

"I did have some weight loss. I have tried some juice fasts recently. Or, excuse me, 'juice cleanse' recently. Yes, I did lose a couple pounds with that. I have been trying to change the way I eat. I've been trying intermittent fasting."

 

Riley, who is away at college, is 45-year-old Kandi's firstborn daughter by ex-fiancé Block Spencer.

Kandi, an original member of Xscape, also has a son named Ace, 5, and 19-month-old daughter Blaze Tucker by husband Todd Tocker (via a surrogate).

The reality TV star recently announced she underwent surgery to reduce her breast size. However, her YouTube followers called her out for lying about having her breast implants removed.

Like most women going through perimenopause, Kandi found it difficult to lose weight once her estrogen and progesterone levels decreased.

"Let's not let all the other diets and stuff that I've done confuse you into thinking that that's what made my boobs get reduced, because it is not, honey!" she said.

The #ObamaVariant trended overnight online after guests leaked photos and videos from Obama's three day bash.

Obama, who turned 60 on August 4, promised to "scale back" his massive 500 guest list after critics slammed his birthday plans.

Your auntie would post the photos from the party, but Obama's people are snatching down photos and videos from the Internet.

Meanwhile, liberals are praising Obama for holding his party as the Delta variant surged across America.

New York Times reporter Annie Karni was dragged on Twitter for describing Obama's soiree as a "sophisticated vaccinated crowd".

Journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted:

"A NYT reporter on CNN justifying Obama's huge maskless birthday bash because he only invited 'a sophisticated, vaccinated crowd' is about as emblematic of liberal discourse as it gets. What happened to all the concerns about vaccinated people passing Delta to the unvaccinated? Yes, it's a pandemic and a crisis, but let the sophisticated people have their fun!"
