Darius McCrary wants you to ignore your lying eyes. The “Family Matters” actor sparked wild rumors when he posed in a steamy photo shoot with voluptuous male-to-female influencer Sidney Starr.

Sidney, 32, shared a video from the sexy photo shoot on Instagram, and captioned the post:

“We both are just built special!!!!! 2 hard working celebrities in the industry!!!!!!! Eddie Winslow we love you!!!! @dariusmccrary ! We hear y’all talking.”

In the video, Darius couldn’t keep his eyes or hands off Sidney’s manufactured curves.

However, Darius, 45, vigorously denied the rumors while dining on oxtails and rice with his TV mom, JoMarie Payton, on Monday.

In an Instagram stories video, Darius scolded social media users for believing the rumors that he is transgender-attracted.

“Listen y’all, while y’all discussing these rumors that aren’t true, we eating,” said Darius.

“And they aren’t true either,” added JoMarie. “They are not true, Ok?” .

Darius continued:

“But I will say this: what are we in high school? You’re going to tell me who I can’t be friends with, who I can’t hang out with? I mean, I’m a grown man. I’m really 5 years from 50… If I wasn’t with my momma, I would really be saying this a whole ‘nother way. But I’m being respectful because my momma right here.”

He may not be respectful to his ex-wives, but he’s very respectful to his elders.

Darius went on to say his “fiancée would really have something different to say” about the rumors. “That’s what y’all really should be focusing on: where that ring is.”

Harry Hamlin on Why He Felt Garcelle Was “Unhappy” on RHOBH

Harry Hamlin Reveals If He Really Said Garcelle Seemed "Unhappy" on 'RHOBH,' Tells Andy He Was "Really Hard" on Erika at Reunion, and Reacts to "Ugly Leather Pants" Feud

Harry Hamlin appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Sunday night, where he was asked about wife Lisa Rinna‘s claims that he asked her “what happened” to Garcelle Beauvais and said she looked “so unhappy” amid The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills season 11.

Amid production on season 12, Harry explained what he really said about Garcelle before sharing his thoughts on Erika Jayne‘s reunion performance, Sutton Stracke, and Crystal Kung-Minkoff‘s “ugly leather pants” feud in his backyard, and more.

“What I said was, because I’ve known Garcelle for years and she’s always so, in my experience with her, she’s always been so sweet, so nice, so bubbly, so up and it seemed as though she’d undergone some kind of transition and I wanted to know what Lisa thought about why she didn’t seem to be the same person we had known for 20 years,” he explained on the November 30 episode of the WWHL: After Show. “That’s what it came down to.”

On the live broadcast of WWHL, Harry also spoke of Garcelle, saying he is “really glad” she and Lisa made amends at the RHOBH reunion.

“I’m just glad that they have reconciled and look, we’ve been friends with Garcelle for years, much longer than any of the other girls on the show, so I’m really glad,” he shared.

He also confirmed that he wasn’t upset with Garcelle for failing to offer a “formal” thanks for the pasta sauce he and wife Lise dropped off at her home.

“No no no… and I texted her. I said, ‘Garcelle, I never expected a thank you. I just wanted you to enjoy the sauce.’ I don’t even remember how that came up. Did Lisa actually accuse her of not thanking [me]?” he wondered. Then, when host Andy Cohen confirmed that was the case, he added, “Well, naughty on her.”

Although Harry was admittedly hesitant to accept Lisa’s role on RHOBH, he’s now quite involved and had some strong opinions about the reunion, specifically regarding Andy’s treatment of Erika.

“You were really hard on her. You were tough, okay?” he told the host. “And she handled herself brilliantly, given how you were turning the screw. She’s in a very tough spot.”

When Andy later asked about the hypocrisy claims made against Lisa, who was accused of being harder on past cast members than she was on Erika, Harry explained, “But Erika has never told an untruth, as far as we know, to Lisa.”

As for the dramatic encounter that took place between Sutton and Crystal in his yard, Harry said that he was shocked to find the ladies screaming as he handled some dishes.

“I was taking the dishes out and all of the sudden I heard something about leather pants and they’re screaming about [it]. I went, ‘Wait a minute. Who screams about leather pants?’” Harry recalled.

He then shared his opinion on Crystal’s infamous pants.

“They were great,” he said of the look.

According to TMZ, Jacqueline Avant, 81, who had been married to Clarence for 54 years, died at the hospital after assailants broke into the couple’s Trousdale Estates home in Beverly Hills, California. Police received the call about the home invasion at around 2:30 a.m., but by the time they arrived at the scene, Jacqueline had already been rushed to the hospital.

Clarence was home at the time of the shooting but whether he was injured or not has not been reported. It’s also unclear if police have any suspects in custody.

As TMZ reported, Jacqueline served as the President of the Neighbors of Wattsa support group that focused on child care—and she was also on the Board of Directors of UCLA’s International Student Center. She is survived by Clarence and the couple’s two children, Alexander Du Bois Avant and Nicole Avant, a former United States Ambassador to the Bahamas and the wife of Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos.

This is a sad story of senseless violence. No one should live for 81 years only to be killed in what appears to be a random act of violence.
