One of Akon‘s harem of wives, Tomeka Thiam, will join the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

It isn’t clear if Tomeka will be a “friend” of the cast, or if she even knows any of the cast members personally.

What is clear is that Tomeka has enough drama in her life to fill several seasons of scripts.

For starters, Tomeka is one of Akon’s handful of wives. It’s unknown if she’s the main wife or just one of his concubines.

Sources close to production tell TMZ, that Tomeka has agreed to be part of season 14 of ‘RHOA’ and will film with the other Housewives beginning in November.

According to TMZ, no official decision has been made on whether she will be a regular, a “friend”, or just make a guest appearance.

Former RHOA cast member Sheree Whitfield is also rumored to return to the show, but only if she regained full-time Housewife status with her own peach in hand.

Akon, who is Senegalese, famously admitted he has several wives, but it’s unclear if he or any of his other wives will make an appearance on the new season of RHOA.

Akon sparked controversy during a concert in 2017 when he simulated sex with a 15-year-old girl at the Zen Nightclub in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago as part of a fake contest.

As a result of the scandal, Verizon Wireless removed cellphone ringtones featuring Akon’s songs. Verizon also pulled out as a sponsor of The Sweet Escape Tour where Akon was the opening act for Gwen Stefani.

You Good, Bro? Boosie Tweets Homophobic Rant Suggesting Lil Nas X Should ‘Commit Suicide,’ Montero Masterfully Responds

Boosie Badazz is clearly fighting some demons of his own, and for some reason, he’s still taking that out on Lil Nas X.

Over the weekend, Lil Nas X continued to do what he does best: troll. In a clip from Instagram Live, which made its way around social media, the “Industry Baby” singer joked that he has a song with Boosie on the way.

“I been working on this song with Lil Boosie, bro. I have this song with Lil Boosie, gonna come out,” he told fans at the time.

Once Boosie caught wind of this harmless joke, he does what we all expected him to do and threw even more homophobia Lil Nas X’s way–but this time, it was even more violent than usual.

“STOP TROLLING ME F—– LOL!! U A WHOLE B—- PLAYING WITH A GANGSTA SMH U CAN KEEP SUCKING D— N GETTIN F—ED N YOUR A– N PEACE N #uhateyourself I WOULD TOO IF I WAS YOU LOL NASx IF YOU #commitsuicide YOU WOULD DO THIS WORLD A HUGE FAVOR NOBODY WANTS U HERE,” Badazz tweeted on Saturday, October 23.

While the tweet remained published for a while, it has since been deleted for violating the platform’s rules.

In true Lil Nas X fashion, he didn’t respond directly to the alarming homophobia and self-hatred oozing from Boosie at all times. Instead, he took advantage of his name trending on Twitter to troll us all.

“I am truly saddened. i have never been so mortified in my life,” he began. “I can’t believe disney channel has yet to play halloween town this entire october.”

Of course, this is far from the first time Boosie has come for Lil Nas X, but back in September, the singer implied the comments did not affect him.

“I was listening to Boosie in the club the other day. I don’t really care. Honestly, I wish they didn’t say it, I guess,” He said of the rapper during an appearance on The Breakfast Club. “But I like the music, I’m gonna listen to the music. If somebody got beef with me, that doesn’t mean I got beef with them.”

When asked if he would consider replying to the hateful messages, Lil Nas X said, “Only if I have something really witty.”

Emily Ratajowski, Nicholas Braun & More Appear In Halloween Talk Show Sketch On ‘SNL’ With Jason Sudeikis

Emily Ratajowski, Nicholas Braun & More Appear In Halloween Talk Show Sketch On ‘SNL’ With Jason Sudeikis

Kenan Thompson’s ‘D’Andre’ hosted the ‘SNL’ talk show sketch, which included a few familiar faces — including cousin Greg from ‘Succession’!

You never know who might pop up on Saturday Night Live — and October 23rd was no exception! While Jason Sudeikis, 45, hosted the episode, the former SNL cast member had a supporting role in this sketch which was all Kenan Thompson. As a BET logo flashed on the screen, Kenan introduced the spoof talk show called, “What’s Up With That — Halloween Edition” that included some major guests like Emily Ratajkowski, Oscar Issac and Succession’s Nicholas Braun.

“We’re taking on the issues of the day with soul,” Kenan declared, rocking a longer hair ‘do and a ’70s inspired burgundy suit. He went on to introduce his guests — Oscar, who was dressed as a pirate, Emily, as a cat in tiger ears, and Succession actor Nicholas Braun — who appeared to come as just himself.

Kenan didn’t let the gang do much talking, however, as he continued on with his rather repetitive song. “I woke up this morning and I got out of bed…hid from a ghost and a scary black cat….ooh wee. What’s up with that, what’s up with that?” Kenan’s D’Andre crooned with a little help from another guest star: Fred Armisen as Giuseppe the saxophone player and Jason Sudeikis, who appeared to be channeling The Royal Tenenbaums in a red Adidas suit while doing his doing as a back-up dancer.

“Well thank you very much for joining us. We’re excited about Halloween! It might get a little creepy. It might get a little stinky!” Kenan then told the group, as Chris Redd busted a move in the audience before turning his attention to Fred’s Giuseppe.

“I hope your wife is feeling better,” Kenan said to a chuckling Fred, rocking a long wig just like Kenny G (who is one of the most successful artists of all time). “That wasn’t a joke, Giuseppe,” Kenan clarified. After brief chatter with his guests, D’Andre appeared to be confused about Nicholas — confusing him with Lindsey Buckingham from Fleetwood Mac.

“He has been on every show that we have ever had for the last 12 years — Lindsey Buckingham,” D’Andre announced, seemingly thinking the legendary rocker was dressed up as Cousin Greg from Succession. “The best cousin Greg from Succession I have ever seen,” he noted to a confused Nicholas.

“I’m Nicholas Braun,” the Succession star corrected multiple times throughout the sketch. The guests — including Oscar — didn’t get the chance to do much talking, though, as Kenan went right back into his song.

“Well, we outta time — but I wanna thank Oscar Issac for being here,” D’Andre said at the end, with Oscar noting, “That’s how I thought it would go.”

Jason Sudeikis Hilariously Spoofs Ellen DeGeneres On ‘SNL’ With ‘Mellen’ — Watch

Published

Jason Sudeikis

Move over Ellen — Mellen has arrived in the form of Jason Sudeikis! The actor brought his spin on the talk show host to ‘SNL.’

Jason Sudeikis, 45, brought all the laughs on Saturday Night Live — including in this Ellen DeGeneres spoof! The Ted Lasso star played spoofed male version Mellen who dressed just like the talk show host, and had a show in a very similar looking set as a voice over explained the difference between the two.

“Mellen’s a man man! You never know what Mellen might do next! He won’t just hi-five the audience, he’ll fist pump them too,” they explained, noting there were some similarities — including sneak up surprises!

“Just like Ellen, Mellen has sneak up surprises,” the voice over said, as Mellen interviewed Chris Redd‘s character who appeared to be against the COVID-19 vaccine. As Chris was speaking, a nurse pupped up from behind and stuck a syringe right into his neck for a Gotcha! moment. “You just got vaxxed, Mellen style!” Jason’s Mellen quipped.

The actor’s journey to his long-time role at SNL — which gave him the platform for a successful film career — came after he wanted to become a member of the Blue Man Group. “They flew me out to New York…That was August of 2001, right before 9/11. And I got to see myself bald and blue,” he hilariously said to GQ last year. Shortly after, he was asked to audition for Lorne and the Saturday Night Live team — which he wasn’t keen on.

“I didn’t want to work on SNL,” he confssed. “At a certain point in your comedy journey, you have to look at it as like McDonald’s…You have to be like: ‘No. Never’,” he reasoned, eventually, of course, saying yes. “It was like having a crush on the prettiest girl at school and being like, ‘She seems like a jerk.’ And it’s like, ‘Oh, really? ‘Cause she said she liked you.’ ‘She what?!” he went on, drawing a parallel to his actual feelings.

Jason has been in the headlines in recent months for changes in his personal life: the actor’s longtime relationship with Olivia Wilde, 37, came to an end in Nov. 2020. The exes are parents to Otis, 7, and Daisy, 4, who they continue to co-parent. “I’ll have a better understanding of why in a year…and an even better one in two, and an even greater one in five, and it’ll go from being, you know, a book of my life to becoming a chapter to a paragraph to a line to a word to a doodle,” he said in the same interview. “That’s an experience that you either learn from or make excuses about. You take some responsibility for it, hold yourself accountable for what you do, but then also endeavor to learn something beyond the obvious from it,” he also said.
