Businessman Martell Holt is a single father of five who has multiple women fighting over him, including RHOA cast member Shereé Whitfield.

Martell, 40, is a real estate tycoon who owns his own wine brand. He is best known for his appearance on the Love & Marriage: Huntsville reality series on the OWN network.

Martell was born on January 4, 1982, making him a Capricorn. He is a native of Huntsville, Alabama, and earned a Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Alabama A&M University in 2008.

He taught at Sparkman Middle School for two years before leaving to focus on his business empire.

Martell shares four children - son Martell II, and daughters Maliah, Mariah, and Malani, with his ex-wife Melody Holt.

He also fathered a toddler son, Knox, a.k.a. Maverick, during an extramarital affair with entrepreneur Arionne Curry.

Martell is an excellent father to his five children, who are featured prominently on his Instagram page.

Rumors swirled when Shereé Whitfield claimed she is dating Holt and has introduced him to her friends and family as her man. She even claimed they are moving in together.
 

 
But Martell's mistress and baby mama, Arionne, insists Shereé is only using Martell for a storyline on RHOA.

She posted an email exchange on social media, calling Martell a "narcissist" and a "liar" and she hopes his three daughters don't grow up to run into a man like their father.

"F*** you Martell Holt you made me like this. It took 2 seasons of you discussing me every episode to make her famous and she left you to even say something. I was s0000000 dumb! I hope your 3 daughters never run into a man like you! And loyal to you, you been using me! My heart hurts for you and you still don’t get it! You could’ve moved on and kept it real but you lied about it! Stop placing blame on me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

In another email, the 31-year-old boutique owner blasts her ex for dating "an old b****," presumably she's referring to 52-year-old Shereé, who is divorced from ex-NFL player Bob Whitfield.

In an interview with disgraced vlogger Tasha K, Arionne said Martell has a way with women that melts her heart.

I'll agree that Martell isn't your typical Morning Wood. As you can see, he carries a lot of baggage and female drama with him.

Still, he is a good catch if you're the adventurous type who doesn't mind the drama and extra baggage.

Sheree Zampino, the ex-wife of disgraced actor Will Smith, says she will quit the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills franchise if Jada Pinkett Smith (left) joins the cast.

In a new interview, Sheree Zampino says she will never appear alongside her ex-husband's current wife, Jada, if she becomes a cast member.

"Honestly, I wouldn't do the show with Jada. I would never want to jeopardize what we've built. I wouldn't even take that chance," she told Page Six.

Sheree, who divorced Smith in 1995, shares 29-year-old son Trey Smith with the Oscar-winning actor.

Despite her feelings about working with Jada, Sheree and Jada share a friendship that has endured for decades.

But Sheree says she has made an effort not to "blur lines" of friendship with Jada, who shares daughter Willow and son Jaden with Smith.

Sheree says she makes their friendship work for the sake of the children.

"You have to keep the main thing and those are our children. It's about making it work for their well-being," she said.

But Sheree says she doesn't object to Jada making cameo appearances on the reality TV series.

"You can never say never," Sheree said.

Kenya Moore (R) is calling out Marlo Hampton (L) for lying about a home invasion that allegedly occurred earlier this month.

If you recall, police arrested four gang members for a string of home invasions that targeted celebrities and pro athletes in the Atlanta metro area.

Derrick Salters/WENN.com

Hampton, a longtime cast member of Bravo's Real Housewives of Atlanta, claimed to be a victim of an attempted home invasion on July 1.

She claimed gang members kicked in the front door of her Sandy Springs home while she was at home.

Ivan Nikolov/WENN.com

"When I heard the boom, when I heard my nephew scream — and I knew that scream was a scream of fear -- my heart dropped," Hampton told WSB-TV.

Hampton said Sandy Springs police arrived within minutes of her 911 call, but the gang had already fled.

Charlie Steffens/WENN.com

But Kenya Moore is skeptical of Hampton's claims.

Moore questions why Hampton failed to mention details of the break-in to her fellow cast members.

In a tweet, Moore noted that Hampton withheld crucial information that could "possibly help keep" the other cast members safe.

"Happy no one was hurt... but she took the time to withhold information from the cast that could possibly help keep us safe, but was happy to release details in interviews. #rhoa #fake".

BACKGRID

In another tweet, Moore clarified that Hampton initially texted the cast members and informed them about what happened, however, Hampton was hesitant to provide details about the home invasion during a conference call with the RHOA cast.

"So she had sent in a text message to all of us that it happened so then I asked in that same thread, asked everyone to get on a conference call. Schedule a conference call so that we all can talk about what happened or share our experiences on how to keep one another safe. I had a security expert that I had scheduled for the call."

BACKGRID

Moore suggested that other cast members were "targeted" for home invasions.

"It seemed as though Kandi had an issue with a potential break-in then Marlo and then Drew like a few weeks after that so it seemed like it was you know us being targeted if you will. So that was my thing about us being safe."

BACKGRID

Moore was annoyed that Hampton ran to the news media with her claims, while holding back information from her co-workers.

"So if you have some additional information that you can share, you should share it because this is a group that whether we like it or not, we're all on television and we are the 'Housewives'... Initially she said she couldn't share and then somehow she shared it with the world before she shared it with us. So that's what I was speaking to."

Why would Marlo lie about a home invasion?

In episode 7, matchmaker Shae Primus' client, her sorority sister, proves to be a major challenge.

Twitter user @JohnReads writes:

"Ladies and gentlemen this is what chasing your career and getting too old for the dating market looks like. She's callused, manly [overly assertive]. She said to that brother 'You're on the clock.' She's looking for a subordinate, lol."

He added:

"She had no emotional intelligence in knowing that he was uncomfortable during that time. No self awareness: Me, me, me, me..."

Former "Black Ink Crew" star Ceasar Emanuel says a viral video that shows him abusing a dog isn't what it seems.

Ceaser was spotted out & about in NYC Thursday night -- hours after TMZ broke the news that VH1 fired him.

The video shows Ceasar violently hitting one of his dogs with a metal folding chair. He is also seen placing a dog in a metal cage and kicking the cage down a hill.

Now he claims the video doesn't tell the entire story.

He says he was simply breaking up a fight between his dogs — and he only hit one of the dogs when it lunged at him.

Ceasar says he felt like he had to back down his dogs any way he could, and he feared for his own life.

He says the video clip came from his home security camera -- and he thinks someone with access to his house set him up, since the video was leaked online.

Ceaser also claims both dogs are OK, but he had to give one dog away, and the other dog was placed in obedience training classes.

As TMZ reported, a VH1 spokesperson said, "We have made the decision to cut ties with Ceaser Emanuel from 'Black Ink Crew' New York."

VH1 terminated Ceaser Emanuel's contract after a video surfaced allegedly showing him abusing dogs, TMZ reports.

The former "Black Ink Crew" star is seen in a leaked Ring camera video hitting a dog and putting the mongrel in a cage, then kicking the cage down a hill.

Ceaser's face is not seen in the video, but co-star Donna Lombardi confirmed his identity in her response to the video.

Lombardi reposted the clip online and said "I don't even get into the life of this man, but this video made me so upset."

She called on the network to cancel him completely, adding "I pray the people see you, @ceaserblackink, as the monster you are."

Twitter users tagged @VH1 and demanded they fire the reality TV star.

"Hey @VH1 fire the f**k out of #CeaserEmanuel from #blackinkcrew. He abuses dogs," one person wrote.

A spokesperson for VH1 tells TMZ, "We have made the decision to cut ties with Ceaser Emanuel from Black Ink Crew New York. Since next season was close to finishing production, this decision will not impact the upcoming season."

The show is currently in production for its 10th season, and Ceaser's been a part of the series since its 2013 premiere.

Ceaser has not responded to the allegations.

Although she makes an appearance in season 14, Kandi agreed to give up her peach for her own reality TV series. If Kandi & The Gang is cancelled will she beg for her peach back?

Kandi's peach went to Marlo Hampton, left, who was a "friend" on RHOA for over a decade.

Season 14 saw the third return of original cast member Shereé Whitfield (right). "I'm back, back, back again," said Shereé, who updated everyone on her relationship with ex-convict Tyrone.

"Tyrone has been around for a while. I put in so much time with this guy," she said. Shereé took Tyrone in after he was incarcerated for several years. The 52-year-old said she wants to know if "love conquers all" now that he's out of prison.

Daughter Camara, a.k.a. "Mother Mathis," decided to forego a career to raise a family of her own with her husband, Ryan. Camara and Ryan are parents to daughters, Nora and Zara. It's easy to see why Camara is her father's favorite child.

Due to his long hours on the set, Mathis wasn't always around to be a strong father figure to his sons.

Son Greg Jr. is working in real estate ventures alongside his long-term boyfriend Elliott. While Mathis' youngest son, Amir, is building his production empire after his recent divorce.

Amir's wife moved out and filed for divorce after she discovered he had a girlfriend on the side.

Polygamy is a tradition in other cultures, but it hasn't caught on in America yet. Polygamy means having more than one wife or husband.

NeNe Leakes is losing it. The former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member took to social media to say someone is harassing and stalking her.

"They always Blacklist you when you tell the truth," she tweeted on Tuesday, April 12.

The paranoid 56-year-old continued in a follow-up tweet:

"Stop harassing me, my business and my family! Stop having me followed, stop blacklisting black women for speaking the truth, stop paying off attorneys to not file discrimination claims! STOP IT."

NeNe didn't provide any details about who is stalking her or having her followed.

Her career took a nosedive after she accused Bravo TV executive producer Andy Cohen of being a racist.

She was unceremoniously fired from The Real Housewives of Atlanta for allegedly being difficult to work with.

Further compounding NeNe's problems are rumors that she is having financial difficulties. NeNe owns The Linnethia Lounge in Duluth, Ga. and she's appearing in BET's "College Hill: Celebrity Edition" reboot with fellow C-listers Ray J, Lamar Odom, Big Freedia, Stacey Dash, DreamDoll, India Love, and Slim Thug, and more.

In the series, NeNe and the other Cs return to college as a personal challenge to convince themselves that they can do it.

According to Deadline.com, the C-listers will live together and join HBCU Texas Southern University as students.

"Texas Southern University is committed to transforming the lives of its students," said Dr. Lesia L. Crumpton-Young, President of Texas Southern University. "It is an absolute pleasure to welcome our new Tigers to campus, where they will be immersed in TSU history, academics and student life against the background of our beautiful, urban campus."

The numbers are in for "The Kardashians" Hulu special that aired last Wednesday. As you know, the Kardashians and the Jenners have gone all out to promote the new series, after "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" was canceled last year.

Kim Kardashian divorced Kanye West and took up with another mentally addled celebrity, Pete Davidson. The two of them are constantly agitating Kanye on social media in an effort to boost interest in the TV series.

Their efforts failed miserably.

via Rhymes with Snitch -- According to reports the Kardashian Hulu Special debuted on Hulu affiliate ABC last Wednesday that only pulled in 2.8 million viewers.

In comparison "Survivor" pulled in 5.5 million viewers on CBS and "Chicago Med" pulled in 6.6 million on NBC in the same time slot. Making matters worse the coveted younger demographic did not tune in at all for the K Klan, only the older folks.

Kandi Burruss says NeNe Leakes once called her the racial slur "c**n". The former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star -- who quit to star in her own show, "Kandi & the Gang," on Bravo -- revealed the incident to Raquel Harper on the "It's Tricky" podcast on Wednesday.

Kandi insisted her old castmate called her a "c**n" when they had beef right before Bravo took Kandi's side and gave NeNe the boot.

At the time, NeNe accused Kandi of creating "fake beef" for a plot line.

In May 2020 NeNe wrote:

"I will NOT let the fake beef YOU made up to stop me from wishing you a Happy Birthday & posting my favorite pic of us Kandi. Everybody go wish @kandi a Happy Birthday! Then tune into #RHOA to watch Kandi have the fakest, want some smoke, beef wit Nene segment at 8pm TONIGHT on @bravotv."

NeNe, who will be featured on BET's reboot of "College Hill: Celebrity Edition," announced she was departing RHOA in the summer of 2020.

Their longstanding beef may have something to do with Kandi being favored by Bravo TV's executives.

When Raq asked Kandi to explain where the bad blood comes from, Kandi claimed she doesn't know why NeNe hates her.

However, she guessed that it may have something to do with their respective success on the network, or NeNe's lack of success, according to TMZ.

In September 2020, NeNe accused Bravo exec Andy Cohen of being racist: "The racist is the master manipulator! They using me for ratings like they have always done."

In a separate interview on SiriusXM Urban View's The Clay Cane Show, Kandi said she disagreed with NeNe's allegations that Cohen was "racist".

"[A]t that time, we still had like, four or five of us, who had been there for a while, making some real good money," said Kandi.

"It's not like one person is doing well on the show, multiple women on this show are doing really well... It's certain things that you may not like, certain things that you may want to try to do better, but, overall, to say that they were racist – I didn't agree with that at all."
