Happy Monday! Grab your coffee and take a look at what we’re talking about as we start our week:
It’s #ClearBlueConfirmed! Tamera Mowry-Housley is pregnant again! The Real co-host announced on Instagram, in a post sponsored by Clear Blue, that she is once again expecting. She posted a pic of her at-home pregnancy test with the caption: “We are thrilled to announce we are #ClearblueConfirmed! Can’t wait to meet baby #2!” This will be her second child with husband, Adam Housely. We’re thrilled for you and your family, Tamera!
LeBron James was one of many athletes and fans to mourn the death of ESPN’s Stuart Scott. “Can’t believe you’re gone from us!” he wrote on Instagram. “I am deeply saddened because not only will [you] not be replaced as an anchor or reporter but more than that as a genuine cool person. What [you] did for our culture, bringing that Swag to reporting can only be copied.”
It was a bitter sweet moment for Keke Palmer and Nene Leakes as they wrapped up the Broadway production of Cinderella. “I can honestly say I wasn’t sure I could do it…This Broadway journey has been all about GOING FOR IT!” Palmer said. Each of the stars were teary eyed as they took their final bows on stage last night. “Tears of joy!” Leakes later wrote on her Instagram. “When I think about all I have accomplished, all I can do is shake my head.” [Hello Beautiful]
The King of Pop lives on. It is being reported that 17-year-old Prince, Michael Jackson’s oldest son, is working on a “major recording album” with teenybopper Justin Bieber. The duo, who is being musically mentored by Floyd Mayweather, has been recently spotted together, wreaking havoc and living lavishly in Calabasa, California. [Page Six]
Keisha Knight Pulliam was the first to be fired from Celebrity Apprentice last night. The former Cosby Show star was dismissed for refusing to call her TV dad, Bill Cosby for help during a challenge (the episode was filmed a year before rape allegations against Bill Cosby began to resurface). Take a look at her attempt to defend herself and her ultimate dismissal from the show in the video below.
