News Anchor Calls Out Viewer for Calling Her The N-Word

A nightly news program in Atlanta closed out coverage of the city’s mayoral vote on Tuesday night, December 5, by addressing questions as to whether race wound up becoming an issue in the election. And with the support of her colleagues, one anchor was given the floor to reveal how a letter from a hateful viewer exemplifies how she has personally been forced to deal with racism throughout the hotly contested race.

Shortly after the inquiry was brought up for discussion, Emmy nominated newswoman Sharon Reed turned to a camera off to the side of the CBS 46 studio and called for an email she has been holding onto to be brought to the screen for viewers.

Tamar Braxton Files for Divorce

Tamar Braxton is done with her marriage … she’s filed to divorce Vincent Herbert … TMZ has learned.


Tamar filed divorce docs Tuesday in L.A. County. She and Vincent have been married for nearly 9 years — they’re one month shy of their anniversary. Tamar and the record exec have one child together — their 4-year-old son, Logan Vincent.

It’s the end of a long relationship — Tamar and Vincent started dating in 2003. Her sister, Toni Braxton, had been working with him and introduced them.


The couple had a domestic dispute in August, 2016 in an Atlanta hotel. Police were called after he allegedly bit her hand during the argument.

Phaedra Parks Will Not Return To #RHOA

Get ready for a casting shakeup when “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” returns for season 10.

Phaedra Parks will not be returning to the hit Bravo reality show for the upcoming season, E! News reports. The news of Parks’ departure from the drama-filled show comes just one day after the explosive wrap-up to the season nine reunion special.

At the Andy Cohen-hosted sit-down, it was revealed that Parks, 43, was behind a bombshell rumor that co-star Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker were planning to drug and rape fellow cast mate Porsha Williams.

During the special, which aired in four parts, Phaedra, Kandi and Porsha went back and forth hurling accusations and denials toward one another, with Phaedra repeatedly denying Porsha’s claims that she had spread the rumor.

After it was clear she would not be escaping her lie, Parks eventually offered up an apology to her fellow housewives. “What more can I do? I apologized already and the person I’m most concerned about is Porsha,” she said on the reunion special. “I’m sorry that it hurt Kandi as well.”

The Georgia lawyer first joined the franchise’s cast in 2010. In 2014, she filed for divorce from her husband – and the father of her two children – Apollo Nida, who is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence for bank fraud. The divorce has since been thrown out, as Nida claimed last December that he had never been served.

Meanwhile, as Parks departs, Kim Zolciak-Biermann will make her return after leaving the show in 2012.

Young Thug Arrested For Missing Court

Young Thug was arrested at Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta, Ga. on Thursday (Dec. 22). The JEFFREY creator was taken into custody for missing a court date.

Young Thug's Private Jet #MannequinChallenge
According to TMZ, officers were responding to a stolen vehicle report and were looking for a suspect in the mall. During their search for the suspect, one of the cops recognized Thugger walking through the mall and remembered he’d recently skipped a court date for excessive window tinting. The cops arrested Thug for the warrant, booked him and released him on $500 bond.

For real, though: who can blame Thugger for wanting to tint his windows? As one of the biggest names in hip-hop at the moment, it makes sense that he wouldn’t want to get recognized in his own car. It’s also a safety issue.
It’s been a rough couple weeks since Thug spazzed on a couple airport employees, calling them names and offering them money to quit their jobs. First, he got dropped while trying to crowd surf at a concert in New York City. And, yesterday, he was booked for missing a court date, which must’ve been another annoying ordeal.

In other Young Thug-related news, the ATL artist recently spoke with Paper Magazine and talked about his desire to help fight poverty in Atlanta this holiday season.
“I think people only care about what affects them. It’s selfish, but I think it’s the truth,” he says. “If they are not affected by being poor, they don’t typically fight for it. I remember not having anything, so I want to always stay involved. Whenever I go back to my side of town – Cleveland Ave – I know I have to bring money, because there’ll be friends or cousins or people I knew from 6th grade who are going to ask me for money. My fiancée always says I look like Santa Claus, because I’m just giving everyone something.”
