See what we’re chatting about over cappuccinos:
Tameka “Tiny” Harris sat down with Wendy Williams and dispelled rumors that she and husband Tip “T.I.” Harris are headed for divorce. “We had a couple fights and we were arguing,” said the star of The Family Hustle. “We argue all the time though. We had this one big fallout about the Grammys. It just lingered on and it got bigger and…we’re still together, there’s no divorce. We’re normal. We go through the same thing that every marriage goes through.” When probed about not wearing her wedding ring, the star named a swollen ring finger as the culprit. The fourth season of T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle premieres March 31 on VH1. [E!News]
In other T.I. news, the rapper is set to star opposite Kevin Hart and Will Ferrell in upcoming comedy Get Hard. Harris will play Joaquin, Hart’s streetwise cousin who helps him prep for Ferrell’s millionaire fraudster for prison. [Deadline]

There is good news for those that haven’t had a chance to sign up for Obamacare; the White House announced Tuesday night that it will extend the March 31 enrollment deadline.

Puff Daddy is back. Sean Combs, who has gone by P. Diddy in recent years, is returning to his original moniker for his new album, reportedly titled MMM. It will be his first album since 2010’s Last Train to Paris.
