This season four hip hop couples, including rap legends N.O.R.E. and Monie Love and their spouses face the music at Marriage Boot Camp. Dr. Ish Major & Judge Lynn Toler help them confront lies, tears, and denials, but when dark secrets are exposed, will the relationships survive?
We’re super excited to share an exclusive clip from tomorrow’s brand new episode. The clip features Monie Love and her husband Tuff. Watch as Monie reacts to Tuff blaming her for his career stalling when she stopped helping him AFTER catching him cheating on her with multiple women.
Check out the clip below:
That’s a tough one. Ladies do you think you could still help your husband further his business after being betrayed? We’re not saying he has a valid argument, but some folks (cheating men mostly) would say that it would be in the best interest of their family to continue to help a straying husband if it helps the family continue to make money. Do you think Tuff is in the wrong for saying he would leave “Marriage Boot Camp” without Monie based on this argument?
“Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition” returns with a new episode Thursday, October 14 at 9PM EST on WeTV. Will you be watching?
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.”
Christopher Andersen’s new book details drama between Prince Harry and Prince William, including when the siblings allegedly clashed in 2017 over Harry’s fast-moving romance with Meghan Markle.
Prince William and Prince Harry got into it a few years ago over the latter brother’s relationship with Meghan Markle, according to American journalist Christopher Andersen‘s newly published book, Brothers and Wives: Inside the Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan. Christopher, 72, writes that, according to a palace insider, the royal siblings were having drinks at Kensington Palace in September 2017, when William, 39, expressed concern over how quickly Harry, 37, was moving along with Meghan, 40. “Kate [Middleton] and I think Meghan seems like a lovely girl, but why rush things? Does she really know what she’s getting into? Take whatever time you need to really get to know this girl,” William allegedly told Harry, per the book.
William’s comments did not go over well with his little brother, Christopher’s book claims. Harry allegedly didn’t appreciate William using the term “this girl” to describe Meghan, despite Harry apparently saying that about the former Suits actress before, including when they did their first official interview as a couple with BBC. Harry, as Christopher describes, “resented William’s presumptuous attitude” during their conversation about Meghan, and he quickly lashed out at his big brother.
“Who the hell do you think you are, brother?” Harry said to William while “rising to his feet,” according to the book. He allegedly added, “I’m marrying Meghan, and nothing and no one is standing in our way,” before walking away from his brother and out the door. William, meanwhile, “discarded the idea of asking” their dad Prince Charles, 73, to weigh in on the Meghan-related drama, as the Prince of Wales (and heir of the monarch) “had no stomach for laying down the law where Harry was concerned,” the book claims. Roughly two months after this alleged fight occurred, Harry and Meghan announced their engagement to the world. Since then, the now-married couple has moved to the United States with their two children, after stepping away from royal life at the beginning of 2020.
Drama between Harry and William has been circulating in the press for years now, and it really blew up when Harry and Meghan sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all interview in March 2021. The Duke of Sussex confirmed that his relationship with William, as well as Charles, had been tense since he and Meghan made the decision to leave the U.K. Harry also said that his elder brother was unable to “leave that system,” meaning the British throne. As for Meghan, she called out the royal family as a whole for allegedly not offering her any assistance after she confessed to having suicidal thoughts.
Since that bombshell interview, Harry has spent very little time with his family back in the U.K. He saw them for Prince Philip’s funeral in April, and then for the unveiling of a statue of his mother, Princess Diana, in July. However, he still has not publicly revealed where his relationship with his brother and father stand in the months since the Oprah interview aired.
