Happy Friday! Here’s what we can’t stop talking about today:
As if we weren’t excited enough for the new season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, things just got better. Alongside the full cast, RHOA will be introducing two new castmembers. Demetria McKinney and Claudia Jordan will join the drama-heavy show for season seven. McKinney, a singer-actress, will be full-time, while TV personality Jordan will only be supporting. Will you be tuning in? [EOnline]
Mo’Ne Davis and the Philadelphia Taney Dragon’s won’t go down in the Little League World Series history book–just yet. After throwing 55 pitches in a Wednesday game, Davis wasn’t able to pitch against the Chicago Jackie Robinson Wests, Thursday night, knocking them out of the series. [Time]
Former Scandal star Columbus Short has been arrested, again, for domestic violence charges. His bail has been raised to $500k, and, because of his arrest, he missed another court date. This has left him with two warrants, a second bail and potential jail time to serve. [HelloBeautiful]
The late Amy Winehouse will commemorated with a statue, in London. Placed in Camden, the town where she lived, the family will unveil the bronze statue on September 14, which would be Winehouse’s 31st birthday. [AccessHollywood]
While making an appearance on CNN to talk about protests in Ferguson, Talib Kweli got into a war of words with Don Lemon. Kweli had no problem expressing his dissatisfaction with the way CNN had been reporting over the events taking place, and after being interrupted a few times said, “If I can’t talk, we don’t have to have an interview.”
