Candiace Dillard, current cast member of The Real Housewives of Potomac, is absolutely no stranger to drama, but this time she wasn’t just getting the heat from her co stars. During the season six show reunion Candiace received it from none other than co-host Nicki Minaj!

While most reunion episodes of the Bravo’s beloved Real Housewives series tend to get a little tense, Andy Cohen added some more fuel to the fire by co-hosting the reunion of the RHOP with rapper Nicki. Although the season has been controversial for Candiace, who is feuding with her some of cast members, she also seemed to be put in the hot seat by Nicki more than others, but she did not regard it as a personal attack.

Candiace has been involved in some controversy during this latest season and definitely others in the past of RHOP,  accused of body shaming and a few other low blows. Although she has been feuding with members of the show, which has gotten backlash from fans, costars, and now Nicki, she has taken it mostly in stride. The reality star has accepted and even seemed to welcome Nicki’s harsh reaction to the show and was even surprised by how much Nicki knew about the show!

“Let me clear this up. The Queen did show up, she looked amazing. She went in on me, but she went in on everybody,” said Candiace to ET Online. “She held back not at all. No holds barred. Gave us the business. Read us all for filth. And I would do it again.”

Despite her toughness, Candiace was apparently unfazed by how candid and blunt the rapper was with her and everyone else on the show, which is a surprise. Nicki even said herself  that she felt like she didn’t give any of the stars more than they could handle. “I think went on hard on everybody equally,” said Nicki, via Hollywood Life. “They’re tough girls on that show.”

Candiace also addressed her nasty feud with co-star Mia Thornton this season that reached a boiling point after Candiace starting hurling insults at Mia’s mother and husband, although Candiace later claimed she was not aware of Mia’s mom’s traumatic background.

“I’m more confused than ever by that one,” said Candiace about her relationship with Mia. “More confused than ever.”

When asked if any of her RHOP castmates should be fired, Candiace appeared to think so, but she didn’t name any names.

“I’m not advocating for the firing of any of the saints, although some could go,” she admitted. “But you didn’t hear that from me.”

Siblings stick together! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s kids Psalm, 2, and Chicago, 4, looked adorable and happy playing together in the park in new photos.

Is there anything better than a day of play? New photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s children Psalm, 2, and Chicago, 4, show the sweet siblings laughing and playing together with their bodyguard on January 19. Psalm cruised comfortably on a scooter, sticking his tongue out with concentration as Chicago giggled chasing behind him. With a bodyguard nearby holding a helmet, the kids appeared to be having a fun and relaxing day out in Beverly Hills.

Always in style, the Kardashian-West kiddos each rocked tan Yeezy’s from their dad’s label. Psalm took a page out of his dad’s playbook wearing a cool and casual velour sweatshirt, while girly-girl Chicago wore bouncy pigtail braids and a matching pink sweatsuit.

Last week, Psalm was also seen getting in quality time with his dad during an outing in LA. Fresh off a whirlwind weekend with new flame Julia Fox, Kanye spent time with Psalm and siblings North, 8, and Saint, 6, playing board games as a family at an LA hotel. Even amidst their parent’s ongoing drama, the kids have spent quality time with both Mom and Dad. Kim, (who has been dating Pete Davidson, 28) shared sweet photos of the family– without Kanye– looking glamorous at a small Christmas Eve celebration in December, as well.

Chicago recently celebrated her 4th birthday with a special party, where Kanye helped his daughter take a hit at a unicorn-shaped piñata. Kanye alleged that Kim originally hid the address of the birthday party from him, which he claimed was her way of keeping him from his children. But after Travis Scott reportedly shared the address with Kanye, the father-daughter pair seemed happy and relaxed celebrating her birthday together.

A Legend Immortalized: 20 Quotes That Prove ‘Pharaoh Of Fabulosity’ André Leon Talley Was As Wise As He Was Fashionable



A Legend Immortalized: 20 Quotes That Prove ‘Pharaoh Of Fabulosity’ André Leon Talley Was As Wise As He Was Fashionable

Former Vogue creative director and fashion icon André Leon Talley died Tuesday at the age of 73, and the world of fashion is still mourning his loss. But a funny thing happens when someone as wise, outspoken, and influential as Talley was transitionstheir words live on forever.

Talley was blessed with an eye for fashion, a mind for fashion journalism and a thunderous voice that refused to be stifled by America, the fashion industry, the overwhelmingly white world of journalism or the stronghold eurocenticity has on what is or isn’t considered beautiful.

Talley was “the first Black man to hold his position at Vogue, and oftentimes he was the only Black person in the front row at fashion shows,” Vogue wrote in his obituary about their “Pharaoh of Fabulosity”, and he could have been content in being the first and one of the few.

You’d be surprised how many Black people have no problem getting one foot through the door and then using the other to kick down the ladder. Talley did his best to use both feet to stomp that door into splinters—which is to say he used his platform relentlessly to promote and push for diversity in his industry.

So to celebrate the man and his legacy, we have compiled 20 quotes from André Leon Talley that should still be remembered and honored long after his death—starting with that time he told America about its dusty-a** self.


1. “So far, it’s been a bleak streak over here in America! You know what? It’s a famine of beauty. The famine of beauty, honey! My eyes are starving for beauty!”

2. “If Marc Jacobs can wear a lace dress, I can wear a kaftan or anything else I want, at any time.”

3. “Wearing clothes should be a personal narrative of emotion. I always respond to fashion in an emotional way.”

4.  “I don’t consider myself a slave to fashion, but a custodian and curatorial person of fashion.”

5. “People love fashion exhibits because they can fantasize. They can respond to a dress even if they can never wear a dress like that.”

6. “I do believe there’s a heaven. I do believe that God has given me the resilience and the survival skills to withstand the chiffon trenches.”

7. “You cannot live your life in the elitist world of fashion and not step out or you’re disconnected. You have to realize that fashion is not the endgame.”

8. “There is room in today’s world for men to wear dresses.”

9. “Beauty is health. Health is beauty.”

10. “People need to be edited; life needs to be edited. I need to be edited.”

11. “I have always admired stylishly confident women who dress with great authority. This lifelong love of elegance began with the humble wardrobe of my late grandmother Mrs. Bennie Frances Davis.”

12. “I like the idea of being warm and secure. That’s what home should be. That you have a sense of warmth, security, love, and you love the things around you and surround yourself with beauty.”

13. “I would have loved to have been at Vogue in the 60s when Mrs. Vreeland was there. But then I wouldn’t have been at Vogue in the 60s because they wouldn’t have had a black male editor at a fashion magazine the way they did in 1983.”

15. “You can be aristocratic without having been born into an aristocratic family.”

16. “Have knowledge of what you’re talking about. Read and be curious. Always listen. Be prepared when you’re doing something. That’s especially true in the fashion world.”

17. “When I have interns, I always say, ‘Handwritten thank-you notes can make a difference.’ People remember that – not an e-mail, a handwritten note in an envelope.”

18. “I love people—it is not the fashion, it is the people in fashion I love.”

19. “I’d like to be remembered as someone who made a difference in the lives of young people – that I nurtured someone and taught them to pursue their dreams and their careers, to leave a legacy.”

And you did, sir. You made a difference for young people and people of color across the world.



Rest well, André Leon Talley, your legacy will live on.

Whether you want it to be here or not, the weather outside is getting frightful! To face the (mostly) delightful snow and wind, you’re going to need a great down jacket to get you through. Look no further than the Orolay Down Jacket with Faux Fur Trim Hood, which retails for just $119 on Amazon, but does the job of a Canada Goose, which goes for upwards of $995! The Orolay mid-length down jacket covers your upper thighs and is filled with white duck down with high purity to keep you super warm all winter long!

Buy the Orolay Down Jacket with Faux Fur Trim Hood for $119.99 here.

Like the popular Canada Goose Parka, this down jacket hits just above your knees and the ultra-warm hood is lined with removable high-quality faux fur to keep you fashionable and warm. The down jacket also features a two-way separated front zipper that demonstrates strong and smooth features, two side-entry pockets that can keep your hands warm and also help with carrying your small items, and adjustable elastic rib cuffs that are destined to keep you warm at all times! 

Customers gush over this down jacket in reviews, with one user saying “don’t let the thinness fool you, the coat may be just what you need!” “I have worn this coat in minus 15 degrees wind chill and with a medium weight sweater. I was just right!” they added. Others raved about the amazing water-resistant fabric the down jacket is made out of and claim it’s perfect for bracing the cold wind.

“I was headed to NYC the week after Christmas and knew it was supposed to be one of the coldest stretches ever (15 degrees + windchill) so I ordered this coat to keep me warm since we were going to be doing a lot of walking outside. It was delivered exactly when promised so I had it in time for our trip,” a reviewer explained. “The coat fit great (I’m 5’5″ and weigh 124 and size medium fit perfectly – with a shirt & sweater underneath). It was nice and long too (reached the top of my legs) so it kept me really warm. It was really comfortable and never felt or looked bulky or cumbersome. The zipper goes up nice and high so my neck was warm (although I did wear a scarf so that helped too)! The hood was great — just wish there was a button or snap that connected the two sides of the hood under the neck to keep it more securely in place in the wind. I did have a ribbed hat on underneath because of the extreme cold and the hood stayed up fine even over that.”

Many customers suggest sizing up in the Orolay Down Jacket as it appears to run small. Plus, you want some extra space to bundle up underneath it and add some extra layers! The down jacket comes in a variety of colors on Amazon to choose from, including a rich navy, bright white, army green, and black. Shop now!
