Nicole Brown’s Sister Condemns Kim Kardashian For O.J. Simpson Jokes On ‘Saturday Night Live’

While Kim Kardashian has been getting praised by a lot of folks for how (surprisingly) good her Saturday Night Live monologue was, not everyone is okay with the jokes she told.

For her hosting gig, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was ready and willing to roast everyone in her family–including her late father’s friend and client, O.J. Simpson.

During her monologue, Kardashian joked that it was because of her late father, attorney Robert Kardashian, that she first met her very first Black person. “Wanna take a stab in the dark at who it was?” she asked, referring to the manner in which Simpson was accused of murdering his wife, Nicole Brown, and her friend Ronald Goldman in 1994.

“O.J. does leave a mark — or several, or none at all; I still don’t know,” she continued.

Now, Brown’s sister, Tanya Brown, is responding to the jokes, telling TMZ this week that the references to her sister’s death were “beyond inappropriate and insensitive.” She also said it was shocking and hurtful to hear the audience laughing at them.

Especially since Kris Jenner was one of Nicole’s close friends, Tanya thinks Kim should have pushed back or refused to do the jokes. Tanya herself has done that, telling the outlet she once stormed out of a scheduled appearance on The Meredith Vieira Show when she was told, at the last moment, jurors from the murder trial would also be on the show.

Kenya Moore: Gizelle Needs “To Learn How to Read” RHOP Cast

Kenya Moore says Gizelle Bryant Needs to “Learn how to Read” Costars Ahead of RHOP Reunion as Wendy Osefo calls Gizelle a “Turkey Neck”

As the Real Housewives of Potomac reunion has played out over the past few weeks, one thing that fans and Bravolebrities can both agree on is that this reunion has been MESSY.

Between host Andy Cohen calling out Wendy Osefo for downgrading from her “binder” to large cardboard “receipts” and Gizelle Bryant’s apparent lackluster response to Wendy looking at guest-host Nicki Minaj’s cue cards, it seems that the ladies need a lesson on reading each other down. And current Real Housewives of Atlanta and Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip cast member Kenya Moore thinks her pal, Gizelle, could use a few pointers.

This all came after Gizelle posted this scathing tweet aimed at Wendy, who responded with a sharp and shady follow-up of her own, calling her a “turkey neck” who didn’t “tweet all season.”

Kenya, who is friends with Gizelle, was recently asked during an Instagram Live session about whether or not she thought her RHOP pal needed a little help in the “reading” department.

Laughing, Kenya stated, “Gizelle knows I have told her every single reunion, ‘Gizelle, call me first before you do a reunion.’ Does Gizelle call me? Clearly, she doesn’t. I’m like, ‘Gizelle, you are too smart, you are too pretty, and you are the face of RHOP. You cannot sit there and get read down, every single time… every single reunion. You cannot be a queen if you’re getting read like that. Stop. You need to learn how to read.’”

With that being said, Kenya went on to say that she loves Gizelle regardless of her less-than-stellar comeback skills. When one fan called Gizelle messy, Kenya was quick to jump to her pal’s defense.

“I mean, people call me messy too. I mean, come on, it’s a job right? If we weren’t messy, I read when you guys are like, ‘Oh, Kenya needs to be messy.’ Stop. You can’t win either way,” she said.

The Real Housewives of Potomac reunion just concluded airing. Perhaps, Gizelle will reach out to Kenya ahead of future reunions?

Election Day in Atlanta: Felicia Moore and Andre Dickens in Mayoral Runoff

Today is Election Day in Atlanta. The two Black candidates, Felicia Moore and Andre Dickens face off in a close mayoral race.

Atlanta residents are heading to the polls today to replace one-term mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms who decided not to seek a 2nd term.

The polls opened early Tuesday, but poll watchers say the turnout has been low so far.

Current Atlanta City Council President Moore won 41% of the vote on Nov. 2nd. Fellow City Council member Dickens followed with 23% of the votes. A runoff was necessary since neither candidate won 50% of the vote.

Former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed somehow came in third in the voting behind Moore and Dickens. Reed conceded a few days later.

Keisha Lance Bottoms has since thrown her support behind Dickens, who has the support of rappers and nightclub owners.

Rapper Tip “T.I.” Harris endorsed Dickens in a video in which he seemed to blame Moore for the sexual harassment allegations lodged against him and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris.

There are also reports that Moore threatened to shut down strip clubs, which would send dozens of Atlanta’s finest strippers to the unemployment line.

But Moore has vigorously denied the allegations (see video below, courtesy of ATL Uncensored).

Polls will stay open until 7 or 8 p.m. tonight. Find out your polling place here and check out the results of all runoff races here.

Weekends With Adele: Adele Announces 2022 Las Vegas Residency

On Tuesday, November 30, the “Easy On Me” singer announced her first-ever Las Vegas residency: a 24-show run that will have her playing the Colosseum of Las Vegas at Caesars Palace twice a weekend from January 21 through April 16.

The “Weekends With Adele” shows will feature Friday and Saturday night sets from the singer at the top of the year, with presale tickets available through registration using Ticketmaster Verified Fan. Registration will be open from today through 2:59 a.m. ET on Thursday, December 2.

This upcoming residency contains the only announced live dates so far from Adele following the release of her new album, 30. After many years on hiatus, the project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with the biggest week of 2021 in terms of both equivalent album units (839,000) and album sales (692,000).

This announcement serves as good news for fans who thought they’d never get to see this new album live, as Adele herself said she probably wouldn’t tour for 30, despite being anxious to get back on the road during the pandemic.

“This album? No, probably not,” she said about touring in an interview with fellow musician John Mayer for SiriusXM’s Hits 1. “I’d love to. I was actually desperate to tour, which for me is wild because I don’t like touring…I got into the swing of it last time and obviously I’ve gone up to stadiums.”

Adele continued, “Without sounding spoiled, it’s easier because there’s less shows, you reach more people, you get to stay in place…It doesn’t sit right with me putting an album out this year and then touring it in 2023.”

Now, it looks like the songstress got her wish: less shows and less travel while still getting to connect with her fans.

Ticket presales for Adele’s shows at the Colosseum go on sale Tuesday, November 30 on Ticketmaster for Verified Fans.
