Now Mathis returns to television with Linda, his wife of 37 years, and their 4 adult children — Jade Mathis, Camara Mathis Webb, Greg Mathis, Jr., and Amir Mathis - in Mathis Family Matters.

The new series will explore the complex relationships between the judge, his wife, and their children.

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.

Ray J's ex-manager Wack 100 slammed Kim Kardashian for lying about a second sex tape to boost ratings of her family's new reality TV series.

I told you yesterday that the ratings for the Kardashians Hulu special were less than spectacular.

Kim and her family pulled out all the stops to boost interest in the new series.

Kim claims she was upset that her son, Saint West saw an ad for a second sex tape supposedly leaked by Ray J.

"Over my dead body is this happening again," Kim told her lawyer Marty Singer in a teaser of the upcoming episode. "I know the right attorneys this time and I'm not going to let this happen to me again. I have all the time, all the money and all of the resources to burn them all to the f–king ground."

But Wack 100 says Kim is lying again.

"Now I'm confused," Wack 100 captioned a post. "1st @kimkardashian attorney says I'm lying this [tape] doesn't exist 2nd Now @kimkardashian is saying she's blocking us releasing it so now I guess she's admitting her & her team has been lying."

John Shearer/WireImage

Kim, who dated Ray J from 2003 until 2006, previously claimed there was no second tape.

Ray J, who has two children with estranged wife Princess Love, is over being used by the Kardashians the way they used and discarded Kanye West.

In January, he tweeted: "This needs to stop. I also have kids."

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' new reality TV series Kandi & The Gang premiered to low ratings last week.

Former "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member NeNe Leakes took pleasure in Kandi's pain.

NeNe, who was fired from RHOA last year, thanked fans for not watching the series, based on Kandi and husband Todd Tucker's Old Lady Gang restaurant in Atlanta.

While NeNe's fans gloated over Kandi's rock-bottom ratings, NeNe seemed to encourage the hate.

One fan quoted NeNe in a tweet:

"Kandi & the Gang Flopped w/69th place! 'You can never win when you play DIRTY. Stay woke!'"

Another fan wrote: "I refuse to watch, for so many reasons. And I've always believed Nene, she is missed."

NeNe responded by thanking the fan for not watching Kandi's new show.

Speaking of new reality TV series, BET is bringing back "College Hill" with a new cast featuring older celebrities who either dropped out of college or never went.

According to theJasmineBrand, NeNe, 54, joins cast members Lamar Odom, 42, Ray J, 41, bounce music veteran Big Freedia, 44, and Instagram models Dream Doll, 30, and India Love, 26.

Bravo's new reality TV series "Kandi and the Gang" is getting terrible reviews on social media. The new series premiered on March 6, and features Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss, her mom, Joyce, and her aunts Bertha and Nora.

The series centers around Kandi's Old Lady Gang restaurant on Peters Street in southwest Atlanta.

We learn in the first 5 minutes that Joyce, Bertha and Nora are "Old Lady Gang" in name only. The women - who are in their 80s - don't actually run the restaurant or work in the kitchen.

Oh, and they despise the staff.

Two of the restaurant's hostesses are strippers, and Kandi hired a band of misfits to prepare the food.

YouTube/Bravo

It's apparent that Kandi is unprepared to run any restaurant. Every time she opens her mouth, her husband, Todd, corrects her.

There are so many problems with OLG - and they all begin with Kandi. She's not a very good judge of character. That's probably why she brought back "hostess" Shawndreca Robinson, who we're told was previously fired for insubordiation.

Shawndreca doesn't get along with the restaurant's manager, Phillip, who sent her home for talking back to him.

The first thing Kandi wanted to know was why he sent Shawndreca home just for being rude.

HGTV property pro Egypt Sherrod and her husband, builder Mike Jackson star in "Married to Real Estate."

Powerhouse real estate broker and designer Egypt and her husband Mike know plenty about juggling booming property businesses, pleasing clients, managing a home and raising three daughters — and they make it look effortless and fun in their new HGTV series Married to Real Estate.

In the eight-episode season, which premieres on Thursday, Jan. 13, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, Egypt and Mike will marry their considerable complementary talents to help families land a perfect home in their ideal neighborhood.

Egypt will leverage her knowledge of the housing market, financial prowess, and design sensibilities — skills she honed in her business life and as the star of her HGTV hit series Property Virgins and Flipping Virgins — to find affordable houses in desirable Metro Atlanta locations for her clients.

And, with smart expenditures that yield breathtaking results, Mike and his team will renovate the properties to help increase their value and return on investment. "I'm obsessed with real estate and helping people find their perfect home," said Egypt.

"Mike and I find families a house in the right neighborhood and renovate it into their dream home — with the goal that they move in with equity in their new place. We aim to over - deliver for our clients."

"Egypt and I work well together, and we enjoy working together," said Mike. "We've lived in and renovated 11 homes that we eventually sold for a profit, so we're able to advise our clients on how to spend their money the right way to maximize a home's value."

In the premiere episode, Egypt and Mike will tour two unique properties with a couple who is passionate about mid-century modern style. The chosen house has original features the buyers want to keep, including a statement stone fireplace and wood-paneled walls, so Egypt and Mike will incorporate those elements into the renovation.

At the reveal, the duo will wow their clients with a bright, open floor plan that includes a sleek kitchen with a waterfall island and an entertaining room with a built-in bar. Throughout the season, Egypt and Mike also will collaborate and compromise to manage their own personal and home projects, including building a basement design studio, searching for a new office space and creating a big girl bedroom for their youngest child.

While waiting for Married to Real Estate to premiere, fans of Egypt and Mike can catch them in action as guest judges in the last season of HGTV's mega-hit home renovation competition series Rock the Block, as well as stream Egypt's previous HGTV series on discovery+.

The duo also will star as one of the four competing teams in season three of Rock the Block in early 2022.

More Married to Real Estate content will be available on HGTV's digital platforms. Fans are invited to connect at HGTV.com and by following @HGTV and #MarriedtoRealEstate on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok.

Ryan Oubre wrote a lengthy Instagram post explaining why he divorced "Married at First Sight" star Clara Berghaus in July.

Oubre, who married flight attendant Clara on season 12, began his statement by saying he's "not here to debate anyone's feelings or emotions" and that "getting married to a stranger is indescribable."

While he stopped short of calling Berghaus a racist, Oubre suggested she was disrespectful of the Black culture.

"You can't truly be open to marry another race and not want to marry their culture (or at least at the minimum understand it)," he wrote, adding that the "Black experience and Black culture are not monolithic" and are "ever-evolving and ever-changing with time."

He added:

"What I can say is: walking into a family gathering and not speaking to anyone and scrolling through your phone will never fly and declining food (outside of a food allergy or avoidance) because you don't like the way it looks won't help either...

"by marrying into a different race/culture you inherently adopt parts of their identity" and "most importantly, your kids 100% will, and your kids will need you to help navigate it."

He wrote, "it's possible (all too often) to not be racist, while still being completely unaware" and that it is an "example of not understanding Black America."

Migos rapper Offset spoke with "Extra TV's" Rachel Lindsay about welcoming his second child with wife Cardi B.

"Yeah, she's doing good," he said of his wife who is carrying his fifth child. "It's another blessing. God is good."

Their daughter Kulture just turned 3 in July.

Offset also opened up to Extra TV about his HBO Max reality show "The Hype", the streetwear competition series on HBO Max.

He said he enjoys working with Cardi, who is guest starring on The Hype.

"Working with her is always a beautiful thing. She's my wife, so working with her is always magical. She gonna come with the sauce and spunk."

The program gives the opportunity to 10 streetwear lovers to compete in a series of challenges focusing on the fashion industry, designing, and the latest street trends.

Offset is hosting and producing the series.

"I'm happy to not only be a co-signer for the show but a producer," said Offset, who added "We are giving opportunities to the culture."

Offset also called out the online trolls for body shaming Lizzo over her "Rumors" music video with Cardi B.

"You gotta stand up for our Black women 'cause they're always being torn down and beat down the most, I feel like. And they're the strongest... So we gotta uplift them... especially the ones that are uplifted and doing some good. And they comfortable in their skin... It's a beautiful thing."

HBO Max dropped the trailer for its new reality TV series "FBoy Island," hosted by comedian and actress Nikki Glaser, 37.

The series follows three sexy women - Nakia Renee, CJ Franco and Sarah Emig - who are joined by 24 men on a secluded island.

Among the 24 men are 12 "nice guys" and 12 self-professed f**k boys. According to Urbandictionary.com, a "f**k boy" is a player who is only interested in a relationship for sex.

The women's mission is to attempt to find love on the island, preferably with one of the nice guys. But nice guys usually finish last because American women are only attracted to thugs and f**k boys -- despite what women say about wanting a "good man."

According to the NY Post, "By the episode 10 finale, it will be revealed to the audience and the women which men are the nice guys and which were the FBoys all along."

"FBOY Island" premieres July 29 on HBO Max.

Mehgan James shared her views on cheating men in a recent episode of AllBlk's new reality TV series "Notorious Women."

The 31-year-old Houston native previously dumped former NBA player Kedrick Brown for cheating on her.

But her views on cheating men have evolved over the years. She isn't playing games when it comes to her peace of mind. Mehgan says her man can cheat on her -- as long he does it respectfully.

"Cheating respectfully, to me, is cheating where I don't find out," she said.

"Cheating respectfully because, believe it or not, your man is cheating," she said. "I believe that a guy can love you and cheat on you, I'm sorry. Guys are built different than us."

Mehgan added that her man should maintain control over his side pieces, use condoms, and don't bring home another woman's baby.

"I'll only leave my man for three [reasons]," the former "Bad Girls Club" star said. "You bring me home an STD, you have a baby on me, or if you gay."

"There's levels to cheating," said Stormey Ramdhane, who has two sons with Suge Knight. "Don't buy the b**** nothing, don't make her feel special. She can't be more special than me."

"How could you have this whole man list with all these requirements ... and then be okay with him cheating on you," said La’Britney, an R&B singer and former Love & Hip-Hop cast member.

This once popular TV family has fallen out of favor with the viewing public. The children are grown and not so adorable anymore. Negotiations are underway to bring them back, but does anyone care?

A certain reality TV family is in contract negotiations for a four year renewal to their contracts (with options each year). You guys think of this show as sort of herpes that never goes away. But I think it is kind of cute but I don't always recap it. I hate half hour shows. Mommy dearest makes six figures per episode plus a small executive producer check for a half hour show! The network loves the show because it is so cheap to make. The problem is that the cute little kids are all growing up and becoming a bit obnoxious and not that cute anymore.

The attorney repping the family is the best in the business. The negotiations are expected to continue for a few weeks. It is a complete renegotiation. No one in the family has an actual job, so they are desperate to keep the show on the air for as long as possible.
