A jailhouse photo of rapper Fetty Wap surfaced on Instagram Wednesday, Sept. 8.

The picture shows the one-eyed rapper dressed comfortably in a brown jumpsuit while posing with three hard legs.

Fetty, born Willie Maxwell II, is being held in a special unit at a federal facility in Brooklyn while awaiting his sentencing hearing.

Fetty was out on a $500,000 bond when he was arrested on August 8 for allegedly threatening a federal witness during a FaceTime call in December 2021.

Fetty pled guilty to conspiring to distribute cocaine and violating the conditions of his bond.

"I agreed with other people to distribute cocaine. Guilty," Fetty told Long Island Magistrate Judge Steven Locke who ordered him held without bond.

Fetty faces a minimum of 5 years and a maximum of 40 years in prison when he's sentenced.

Fetty's lawyer Elizabeth Macedonio told the court she was "very concerned about his housing".

But the prosecutor said Fetty Wap is property of the Bureau of Prisons and the US Marshals Service - and only they can approve his transfer to another jail.

Fetty is being held in the same federal facility where washed-up rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was jailed.

Monica is not hiding the fact that she is in love with incarcerated rapper C-Murder. The mom-of-three shared an Instagram photo of her jailhouse visit with C-Murder on Easter Sunday.

In the photo Monica is seen seated between C-Murder's legs while he embraces her at the Louisiana State Penitentiary.

The rapper, real name Corey Miller, was convicted of killing 16-year-old Steve Thomas in 2009. He will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Monica is apparently confident that she knows where her man is at all times. She has trust issues after both of her marriages ended in divorce due to cheating.

Monica, 41, released her debut album Miss Thang in 1995. Her hit songs include "Before You Walk Out of My Life", "Don't Take It Personal (Just One of Dem Days)", "Like This and Like That", "The Boy Is Mine" (with Brandy), "The First Night", "Angel of Mine", and "So Gone."

While married to former NBA player Shannon Brown, she starred in her own reality TV series Monica: Still Standing on BET. Monica and Shannon divorced in 2019. They share daughter Laiyah Brown.

Monica also has two sons, Rodney Ramone "Rocko" Hill III, 16, and Romelo Montez Hill, 14, with rapper and music producer Rodney Ramone Hill, Jr.

Miller, 51, is best known for his debut album Life or Death which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Twitter responded to Monica's jailhouse photo.

Russell's head was on swivel all evening as fans shouted his name during the game. Fans showed the new Broncos quarterback much love. At one point the 33-year-old threw a football to a Denver Nuggets fan. He also autographed a football for the Nuggets Mascot Rocky the Mountain Lion.

Meanwhile, the debate rages on Twitter.com after retired NFL player Channing Crowder accused Ciara of marrying "square" Russ for his money.

Crowder, is among the observers who don't believe Ciara and Russell's marriage is as picture perfect as they portray it to be.

Clarkson Creative/Getty Images

During an episode of his online series, The Pivot Podcast, Crowder said women like Ciara - who are into bad boys - don't usually switch up.

"If Russell ain't have that bread, Ciara ain't gon' be with him," Crowder, 38, said. "Russell's square. Russell's square. Ciara had a — she has a good situation — but you're not gonna leave Future and get with Russell Wilson. You don't leave Future and get with Russell Wilson... Everybody has a type."

This Twitter user agreed, tweeting:

"Most men who have wealth don't openly choose single mothers to wife. Men with no kids should choose women with no kids to start their own family and legacy, not piggy back off the nut of another man."

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.

Tami, pictured right with Reginae, writes:

"I arrived at the skating rink and it was nicely decorated and curated by Dazzle Parties. With the neon colored decor, it really made the event pop. Cutout images of Reginae were displayed throughout the space. They also had a custom made guitar cake by Sassy Girl Pies and fun 360 photo booth for guests. I haven’t been on a pair of roller skates in a minute but I was an avid skater back in the day, it quickly came back to me lol.

"Later on a heavy metal band started playing and the guests gathered on the skating rink floor. Reginae made her entrance looking too cute with a black studded corset adorned with chains and patent leather platform boots! She killed her look and was in great spirits! She got on the mic and welcomed everyone and said she was ready to get her "roll on" and then rap group Shop Boyz appeared and performed their hit song, "Party Like A Rock Star"! Reginae rocked out to the song and everyone around her started to dance."

"So, I did a thing [hug emoji] The movies always show women cutting their hair when all is lost but I wanted to know the feeling of making a change when things are gravy. It hits different and its foreign to me but I [heart emojis] this new new. #SummerChop #FlawlessChop #FlawlessCut."

Menopause signals a woman's natural transition from young adulthood to middle age between the ages of 40-65.

During the onset of menopause, a woman's ovaries shrink and stop producing the female hormones estrogen and progesterone that control the menstrual cycle. Every bio female is born with about 1 million eggs in her ovaries.

One or more eggs are released once a month during the menstrual cycle beginning in adolescence until middle age.

During menopause, the eggs are depleted, the menstrual cycle stops and females are no longer able to become pregnant.

The average age of menopause is 50. Menopause can be distressing for some women due to the symptoms which range from mild to severe.

Hot flashes plague 75 percent of perimenopausal woman, and last for an average of five years.

A hot flash feels like an oven turned up to 450 degrees. The sudden intense heat causes profuse sweating that makes wearing wigs and hair extensions unbearably hot.

Other symptoms include:

  • Night sweats
  • Loss of sex drive (libido)
  • Hair loss
  • Hair thinning
  • Excessive facial hair (mustache)
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Mood swings
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • Brain fog
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Depression
  • Weight gain

    Oprah's bestie Gayle King was spotted a week after she announced her plans to ban unvaccinated family members from her Thanksgiving gathering.

    King was spotted outside the CBS studios in New York City on Monday. She wore a purple and white print frock with silver clogs.

    BACKGRID

    King, who is fully vaccinated, did not wear a mask as her bodyguard and an assistant escorted her to an Uber.

    Network insiders whisper that King has not been herself since the Covid lockdowns to slow the spread of the coronavirus last year.

    BACKGRID

    Some of her colleagues say King needs a vacation after she told Dr. Anthony Fauci of her plans to alienate family members on CBS This Morning.

    Looking nervous and exhausted, the 66-year-old news anchor said people who refuse to take coronavirus mRNA injections are a "problem" and she's taking drastic action with her own unvaccinated family members.

    "I don't know how many more times you can say to people, 'Listen, it will save your life.' I have this problem with some members of my own family, which I'm now going to ban for Thanksgiving vacation. That's how strongly I'm taking what you're saying."

    King previously said receiving the vaccine made her feel free because she'd spent the last year "so afraid" to leave the house.
