With a Heavy heart I regret to inform you that my season of #dwts has to come to an end along with the rest of my tour dates with @musicbykem. After yesterday’s final #dwts performance I went back to the hospital (after the doctors didn’t want me to leave in the first place) only to find out that I don’t have pneumonia but something way more serious and that is having several P.E.’s (blood clots in both sides of my lungs) As you all know I will be the first to always encourage anyone to push through any obstacle that comes along one’s way. But in this case, my health is my current obstacle. .. And in TRUE #tamartian form I must go about this the exact same way as I would anything else. I woke up to a mirror and saw myself this morning and that makes me the winner because that almost wasn’t the case. 🏆Take care of yourselves… I love you and thank you ALL for your support❤️ p.s. Big hugs and kisses to my boo @iamvalc for being beyond a friend, brother and the BEST partner EVER😘🙌🏽🙌🏾

NEW YORK, United States (AFP) — Serena Williams chased down a would-be telephone thief at a Chinese restaurant that had the 34-year-old American tennis star comparing herself to Supergirl.
The 21-time Grand Slam singles champion detailed her adventure Wednesday in a Facebook posting complete with her wearing a Supergirl outfit and sending a message for people to channel their inner superhero.
And another message was clear — mess with Serena Williams at your own peril.
“Soooooo yesterday (Tuesday) at dinner the CRAZIEST THING happened to me. I was sitting enjoying some Chinese food and this guy stands next to me,” world number one Williams said.
“And something (I have now dubbed it my SUPERHERO sense) told me to watch him. My phone was sitting in the chair but I just didn’t feel right.
“Low and behold, this common petty thief grabbed my phone and swiftly left. I looked at the chair, than shouted ‘Omg that dude took my phone!!'”
“Not thinking I reacted, I jumped up, weaved my way in and out of the restaurant and chased him down. He began to run but I was too fast. I was upon him in a flash!
“In the most menacing yet calm no nonsense voice I could muster I kindly asked him if he ‘accidentally’ took the wrong phone. While he was thinking of the right thing to say and eventually he said ‘Gosh you know what I did! It was so confusing in there. I must have grabbed the wrong phone’.”
The matter left Williams pondering her own super powers.
“Superhero? Maybe? Or HELL YEA!!” Williams said. “I’ve got the speed the jumps, the power, the body, the seduction, the sex appeal, the strength, the leadership and yet the calm to weather the storm. Always listen to your superhero inner voice. Fight for what’s right. Stand for what you believe in! Be a superhero!
“When I got back into the restaurant I received a standing ovation. I was proud. I just showed every man in there I can stand up to bully’s (sted) and other men. It was a win for the ladies! Just because you are a lady don’t be afraid to step up to any challenge and not be a victim but a hero!”
Williams has not played since losing a US Open semi-final to Italy’s Roberta Vinci, costing her a chance at a calendar year Grand Slam.

Examining Symoné and Lemon’s recent string of controversial comments, the site points out that while folks are campaigning for their dismissal, the pair will ultimately end up still attached to their respective networks and shows, ABC’s “The View” and “CNN Tonight” on CNN.
“Why? Because of ratings of course,” Shadow and Act expressed as it referenced “The View’s” surge in ratings with Symoné as part of its panel. “You may hate her, but she’s the smartest move that the producers on “The View” have made in a long time. As of last month, “The View,” according to TV by Numbers, posted its largest total in viewers and women 25-54 in over 8 months, beating CBS’ “The Talk,” which had been topping “The View” for almost a year.
Since her arrival on “The View,” Symoné has generated headlines for her opinions on the show’s hot topics. Most recently, she caught major criticism for stating that she would not hire black people with ghetto names, in addition to seeming to support the violent treatment given to a Spring Valley High School student by a South Carolina resource officer.
“’The View’ needed Raven-Symoné because she is controversial (or it could be some sort of bizarre art performance or experiment) which means she’ll bring in viewers,” Shadow and Act noted while citing a report it did about Symoné in May. “People naturally gravitate towards controversy, said Sergio, the author of the article. “And the producers on the show knew exactly, in advance what they were getting with her. She’s no accident. They were not going to pick anyone who was safe and conventional. They intentionally wanted someone who would get people riled up.

Boy George is playing with
fire Purple Rain….
The always controversial Boy George is making headlines over a bold claim he made during live auditions of BBC1’s “The Voice, which suggested he’s slept with Prince.
Sources tell The Sun the audience went “absolutely wild” and producers were forced to stop filming to restore order on set. Here’s how it all went down:
“Boy George made his comment about the legendary Purple Rain singer in an exchange with fellow judge Paloma Faith.
The stars, who joined Will.i.am and Kaiser Chiefs’ frontman Ricky Wilson on the judging panel this year, were boasting about who they had collaborated with.
The Karma Chameleon hitmaker started it, saying: ‘I have duetted with some of the greatest soul singers in history including Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson.’
Paloma replied: ‘Well OK, if we’re throwing big soul names out there I’ve performed with Prince.’
To which George retorted: ‘Forget that, darling, I’ve slept with Prince.'”
After being spoken to by the production crew, Boy George began to backtrack on his remarks, saying that he never slept with Prince but had his poster on the wall. Nice save?
Prince has yet to respond to Boy George’s statements.
Halle Berry filed for divorce from Olivier Martinez. The reason Halle cited irreconcilable differences. As for money, we’re told it’s not an issue because the couple had a prenup.
A source close to the couple told TMZ, “They have a personality difference.” And the incident at LAX, where Olivier hit a guy with a car seat, exacerbated their conflicts. Olivier got sued for the incident last week and our sources say the couple argued about the suit, and it became a breaking point.
The couple, both 49, married in July 2013 in a private ceremony in France. Berry announced in April of that year that she was expecting a baby with Martinez. Their son, Maceo, was born in October.
It was the third marriage for Berry, who had previously been wed to baseball player David Justice and singer Eric Benet. It was the first for Martinez, who had been linked to singer Kylie Minogue.
Halle and Olivier will share custody of their son, Maceo Martinez, 2. Halle has a 8-year-old daughter, Nahla Aubry, with former underwear model Gabriel Aubry.
One source tells us the 2 year marriage went into a tailspin a week ago … to the point each of them had it with the marriage, but Halle filed first
The couple issued a joint statement … “It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce. We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus for what is best for our son. We wish each other nothing but happiness in life, and we hope that you respect our, and most importantly our children’s privacy, as we go through this difficult period.”
It seems that Khloe Kardashian called off her divorce to partially paralyzed former NBA player, Lamar Odom.
The 35-year-old ex LA Laker is in a LA hospital recovering from a drug overdose. He requires round-the-clock care after suffering several strokes at a Las Vegas hospital last week. He is unable to walk or talk.
Khloe and Lamar had a pending divorce which was originally signed by both parties, however the Kardashian’s attorney went down to the courthouse with a document signed by both Khloe and Odom, to dismiss the divorce action.
Just a month ago, Khole was considering filing a restraining order against her estranged husband. After texting him her location last month, she and her show’s producers ambushed the bewildered NBA star when he showed up.
Within hours, the story was splashed across the front page of gossip tabloid TMZ, and the ambush became a storyline on the Kardashians reality show. Like a typical fame hungry reality stars, the Kardashian clan sees dollar signs in Odom’s current situation.
Since his recent drug overdose, Odom is worth more to the Kardashian’s in terms of television ratings than he was before.
Odom had previously begged Kartrashian to stop exploiting him for a storyline on her reality TV show. Reports say that a new reality show featured Odom and Khole will feature his recovery and rehab in the next months.
Question: Did he really sign the documents to stop the divorce?

Move over, Obama’s…There’s a new “First Family” coming to the White House. It seems that there’s another “First Family” taking up space in America’s cultural landscape and their names start with K.
The Kardashians controversial Cosmopolitan magazine’s November cover under the headline “America’s First Family,” causing outrage on Twitter and among editors of black and multicultural media and websites.
But the magazine, celebrating its 50th anniversary, says calm down: The cover is just a “teasing” way to describe the Kardashians as the “huge cultural phenomenon” that they are.
But to some on Twitter, the cover seemed to be deliberate belittling of the real First Family — the nation’s first African-American First Family: President Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and their daughters Malia and Sasha.
If Kanye West, succeeds in his quest to add POTUS to his resume in 2020, they may be in the white house sooner than we think…..
