Comedian and TV personality Steve Harvey was a guest on BET TV's "Sip 'n Smoke with Cam Newton."

Newton introduced Harvey as "The man, the myth, the legend himself."

Among the topics of discussion were the keys to success, relevancy, marriage and fatherhood advice.

"The thing I've learned about fatherhood," said Harvey, "ain't no manual, ain't no blueprint for raising yo' kids, and you have to allow them -- because they are going to -- so it's not you allowing them. They are going to make mistakes -- and you have to allot for those mistakes. Because, no matter what you teach them as a parent, they one day are going to make a mistakes that's completely adverse to everything you've ever taught them."

Harvey said his sons are different because he raised them to be head of a household, a husband and a father. "It's going to require toughness so I make them struggle a little bit more."

Harvey said his daughters are different. "I'm protective of them. If you attack my daughters or my wife, I'm coming for you."

He added: "Cats out here be running they mouth... You don't understand: I will die for them."

Both Cam Newton and Steve Harvey are raising (or raised) stepchildren. The superstar quarterback asked Harvey how he handled a stepchild who challenges him and says, "You ain't my daddy."

"When I married Marjorie, Marjorie had three children," said Harvey. "One time one of them said to me, 'you ain't my daddy.' And my question was, 'Ok, but where he at though?' 'Cause I get tight too. Don't step to me disrespectful. Because I'm doing the job [sic]."

Harvey went on to praise men who step up and take on another man's responsibility ("That's a different kind of man.").

Raquel Harper, former host of TMZ's Raq Rants, updated her Instagram followers who continuously asked why she left TMZ.

Harper was host of her own popular Youtube series, Raq Rants, and as a producer for TMZ. Her popular web series was picked up by BET TV for 12 half-hour episodes in 2018.

In response to the many inquiries about her absence from TMZ's airwaves, Harper announced that she is pregnant with her third child and she has been in and out of the hospital with pregnancy-related problems.

"I have been in and out of the hospital a number of times what felt like my death bed," she wrote in the caption of an Instagram post on Monday.

"As you all see I am six months pregnant and have been suffering horribly with hyperemesis gravidarum that has been literally a fucking miserable time.... Just to name a few things that happens weight lost over 40 pounds... low blood pressure..countless Iv drips and vomiting over ten times a day literally not to mention deep depression..I am still not even fully cool yet but definitely way better than I was up into only a week and a half ago...So I am excited though to share we are having a baby girl and she due on @taco_mell birthday April 27."

Despite her health problems, Harper says she plans to return to TMZ on Thursday.

Tom Brady Jack Brady

Tom Brady is catching flack over an on-screen kiss with his son in his new web series 'Tom vs Time'.

A scene from the web series shows the 40-year-old New England Patriots quarterback lying shirtless on a table while getting a massage.

His 11-year-old son Jack Brady walks into the room and asks his father if he can check his fantasy football standings.

"I was wondering if I could check my fantasy team," Jack asks.

"What do I get?" Brady replies.

Jack leans over and kisses his father on the lips, then walks away. As he leaves, Brady complains about the meaningfulness behind the kiss.

"That was like a peck," Tom Brady says, while the male massage therapist adds, "You know Jack, everything comes with a cost, bud."

Jack returns, leans over and kisses his father again -- this time the kiss is longer.

Twitter users expressed their disgust over the second kiss. Some viewers tweeted that the second kiss was "very disturbing" and "uncomfortably long."

CBS reporter Elise Finch conducted interviews with New Yorkers on the street. Many expressed their discomfort after watching the scene.

"I'm a little bit uncomfortable with that," said one New Yorker.

Emily Hernandez, a mother of two from Harlem, said kisses between a father and son are okay at a certain age, "But not in the mouth and not for that long."

Parrish Watson of Parkchester said the kiss was problematic. "Too long. Too long. Like, romantic long," he said.

Kurt Czaplinski, of Hempstead, disagreed. "I kiss my son on his lips. I have since day one," he said. "I would have no problem with my son kissing me like that."

Lifestyle and parenting expert Lyss Stern said people who object to the kiss between father and son are "parent shaming."

Another parenting expert said the 5-time Super Bowl champion is sending the wrong message to his kids.

"I don't think affection should ever be tied in with a favor," said Carolyn Meyer-Wartels, a licensed clinical social worker.

"You don't do anything with your body because someone else is insisting that you do it in order for you to get what you want," she added.
