Beyoncé Shows Off Twin Bump At Baby Shower

A very pregnant Beyoncé stripped down to a bikini top and long skirt during her Beverly Hills baby shower Saturday — with no qualms about showing off her twin-sized baby bump.

The 35-year-old mega-celebrity, who has yet to reveal the gender or due date of the babies-to-be, has decorated her massive belly with a large henna tattoo, as these photos from her star-studded shower show.

Guests included La La Anthony and tennis goddess Serena Williams, who is also pregnant. Beyoncé’s ex-Destiny’s Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, also attended.

Proud mom Tina Knowles Lawson led guests in hollering “Happy Carter push party!” — a shout-out to Beyoncé’s married name: Mrs. Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. The couple’s daughter, Blue Ivy, was born in 2012. Beyoncé caused a sensation when she announced in February — to her 92 million Instagram followers — that she is pregnant with twins.

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.

Kevin Gates Sentenced to 30 Months

Kevin Jerome Gilyard, 31, known by his stage name of Kevin Gates, of Baton Rouge, La., pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm in connection with a 2013 arrest, according to court records. Police records show Gilyard originally was arrested on an unlawful possession of a handgun charge about 8:10 p.m. Oct. 29, 2013, in the 7200 block of South Stony Island Avenue.

Kevin Gates Sentenced 180 Days in Jail

Bridgeview Branch Court Judge Neil Linehan gave Gilyard credit for 34 days already spent in jail in the case, according to court records.

Gilyard at least twice had warrants issued for his arrest in the case, once in 2013 when he failed to show up in court, and once in December 2016, according to court records. He was back in custody at the end of March, according to court records, and had been held by authorities since.

Kevin Gates Sentenced to 30 Months

Gilyard, as Gates, broke onto the scene in 2013 with “The Luca Brasi Story” after a series of mixtapes that depicted the gritty side of his life. The critically lauded effort also brought the rapper into the major label sphere. He signed to Atlantic Records, and released “Stranger Than Fiction” shortly thereafter, the release that began his stint as a Billboard chart fixture.

Rapper Kevin Gates Found Guilty

Gates’ style couples rap and R&B-style singing, while hewing to the bleak, autobiographical style that he has said came from the “pain” of his life. His only studio album, the platinum-selling “Isiah” released in January 2016, reached No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200.

Charlie Murphy Dies At 57

Charlie Murphy, the beloved comedian, writer and older brother of Eddie Murphy, has died after a battle with leukemia. He was 57.

Charlie Murphy Dies At 57

The funnyman passed away Wednesday morning at a New York City hospital, TMZ reported, citing his manager. He had been undergoing chemotherapy treatment. Murphy earned a tremendous fan base as a writer for “Chappelle’s Show,” on which he frequently appeared in sketches alongside star Dave Chappelle. He had a recurring segment on the Comedy Central series called “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories,” which featured him comically recalling his unfortunate interactions with major 1980s stars such as Prince and Rick James when he was a member of his brother’s crew.

The Prince sketch was particularly memorable and detailed a pick-up basketball game where the pop icon (played by Chappelle) and his team beat Murphy’s.

Prince later revealed the game did in fact take place, telling MTV that “the whupping is true.” Murphy, who was Eddie’s only sibling, teamed up with the “Saturday Night Live” alum as a writer for several of his movies, including “Norbit.” He also appeared in front of the camera for many movie and TV roles outside of his work with Chappelle, including recurring gigs on “Are We There Yet?” and “The Boondocks,” and had a lengthy touring career as a stand-up comic as well.

Murphy’s wife, Tisha Taylor Murphy, died in 2009 after a lengthy battle with cancer. The couple married in 1997 and had two kids together: daughter Ava and son Xavier. Murphy also had another child from a previous relationship.

Murphy’s death rocked the entertainment world and led to an outpour of condolences from many of the comedian’s friends and admirers. “We just lost one of the funniest most real brothers of all time,” Chris Rock tweeted. “Charlie Murphy RIP.” Russell Simmons shared a similar sentiment. “Just came out of meditation and learned that one of my friends and my biggest comedy idol passed,” he wrote. “Damn I loved Charlie Murphy.”
