Attention Barbz and Bravo fans; “AndiCONDA” is here!
As previously teased Nicki Minaj made an appearance at the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion after the “Anaconda” rapper said she’d be “hosting” the epic sitdown. After encouraging fans to binge-watch season 6 so they’re “ready for her questions”, Nicki indeed appeared at Thursday’s #RHOPReunion taping.
The news was shared by Bravo boss/official host Andy Cohen who wrote: “It’s the Reunion I could never get away with! At the end of ours, tonight @nickiminaj surprised the #RHOP and did her own thing! #AndyConda.”
On her account, Nicki shared a behind-the-scenes photo as well captioned; “GUESS WHO BTCHS?!!!!! #Andiconda #RHOP COMING SOON ON @BRAVOTV @bravoandy #Moment4Life,”
As you can imagine, the ladies of season 6 were elated to have Onika onboard.
“You were amazing! Love you Queen!” Dr. Wendy Osefo wrote in Nicki’s comments before adding in her InstaStory, “Our Reunion was EPIC!”
“Nikki I absolutely love you!” wrote Gizelle Bryant.
And Potomac pandemonium is ensuing on social media.
Not everyone was pleased with Onikia being in attendance, however, and they’re wondering why Bravo brought Nicki onboard considering her previous vaccine statements and the allegations that she harassed her husband’s sexual assault victim.
Are YOU side-eyeing Nicki coming to the #RHOPReunion?
Andy previously confirmed that he was 100% down with Nicki appearing on the show.
“I would love to figure out a way to work her into the reunion and I would love to be able to bring her out and see what she has to say and wants to ask the women,” said Andy to ET Online. “It could be a fun little new segment. The answer is I’m totally receptive to figuring out how to work her into what we’re doing.”
What do YOU think Nicki Minaj asked at the #RHOPReunion?
Attention Winter House fans, this hot tub hasn’t grown cold yet! Although the two are “currently single,” Southern Charm star Austen Kroll hasn’t ruled out rekindling the flames with his current Winter House co-star, Ciara Miller.
In a new interview withPeople, Austen stated, “Yes, we are both single.” But he added that the two are still in touch, saying, “You never say never. Craig [Conover] thinks I’m going to end up with her.”
Even more telling is the fact that Ciara has apparently visited Austen in Charleston, SC, after filming for Winter House wrapped.
“It was great to see her and reconnect,” he told the mag, adding that the Summer House star did not film for Southern Charm.
Bravo fans will remember that on the very first night of Winter House, Austen and Ciara instantly had a connection that sent them both running to the hot tub for a steamy rendezvous. As the show has progressed, they have even gone on to casually date. However, it seems the timing just wasn’t quite right as both Austen and Ciara have confirmed they are currently not together.
However, it seems Ciara, like Austen, hasn’t closed the door completely.
Ciara recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight, saying, “I genuinely liked [Austen]. I still kind of have these feelings towards him.” She also added that she “had a lot of fun” on her trip to Charleston, SC.
“He definitely grew on me in the most positive way. There were so many moments where I felt like I could trust him, and feeling safe and secure is something that’s so important to me. That definitely catapulted me really liking him,” she continued.
So, what exactly was the catalyst for the potentially temporary fizzle between Austen and Ciara?
Could it possibly have anything to do with the “love triangle” that played out between Austin, Ciara, and Lindsay Hubbard onWinter House?
Lindsay previously told Page Six, “We’re just friends at the moment. Because we have had some sort of romantic history and because we are such close friends, I think the wires get crossed and lines get blurred a little bit.”
Before becoming entangled with Ciara and Lindsay, Austen was in a nearly three-year relationship with a fellow Southern Charm star, Madison LeCroy, who announced her engagement to her boyfriend, Brett Randle, after six months of dating. Austen seems to have moved on and holds no ill-will towards his ex as he expressed nothing but the best for the two.
“I’m happy for her. She has a son that she has to think about. She wants a family and I think she’s accomplished that, or trying to,” he said. “Good luck to them.”
This is one of the “blue lives” that matters? Tuh.

For several years now we’ve seen people take to the streets to protest unjust brutality in the aftermath of a violent and viral incident with police. The sad irony is that we’ve seen many people be assaulted and brutalized by the police while they are protesting the type of abuse that they are being subjected to. Cops just generally don’t do a great job of reading the room.
According to a report on Buzzfeed News, a white ex-cop in St. Louis, Missouri has gotten off with a slap on the wrist for his violent offenses but there’s a kicker. The person who 37-year-old Dustin Boone assaulted was also a cop! During a 2017 protest that resulted from the acquittal of ex-cop Jason Stockley in the killing of Anthony Lamar Smith, a Black undercover police officer was brutally beaten by Boone and another officer named Randy Hays. Boone pinned officer Luther Hall to the ground and allowed Hays to savage him with a baton. The white officers believed that Hall was a protester. Guess that’s all it takes to be assaulted with a weapon.
Prosecutors in the case asked that Boone be sentenced to 10 years in prison. His defense attorneys asked for a little over 2 years. US District Judge E. Richard Webber decided both were obscene amounts of time and tapped Boone of the wrist for 1 year and 1 day that way he would be eligible to get reduced time for “good behavior”. The injuries and PSTD that Luther Hall suffered got him a $5 million settlement from the department which is great, but for his attacker to get a calendar year’s worth of time is insulting…as hell.
During the trial, prosecutors released mounds of evidence proving that there was no “good behavior” in Boone’s body. For example, he sent the following text to another officer on the force during the times of protest.
“But it’s gonna be a lot of fun beating the hell out of these s**theads once the sun goes down and nobody can tell us apart,” he wrote in one message.
In another text, Boone referred to Black folks as “F***ing ni**ers” while talking to another officer. Yet, despite all that, the judge only saw fit for 366 days of “punishment.”
