Mariah Carey Left Fans Underwhelmed With Lackluster Hip Hop Honors Performance — Luckily Missy Elliott, Lil’ Kim, & Teyana Taylor Brought The Heat!

mariah carey hip hop honors performance

Another day, another lackluster performance by Mariah Carey.

On Monday evening, MiMi left fans disappointed as she attempted to recreated her 1997 hit video Honey for VH1‘s Hip Hop Honors. With cameos by Jermaine Dupri and Da Brat, the centerpiece performance should’ve been a highlight of the special — but, sadly, it wasn’t.

Rather, once again, Miz Carey totally phoned in her performance. While Mariah looked GREAT in her black-and-gold jumpsuit, it seemed as though the Hip Hop Honors was the last place she wanted to be. The only time the hitmaker appeared to be invested in her performance was when she was grinding up on boyfriend/dancer Bryan Tanaka.

This hanger-on is still around, Mariah??? *Sigh* Be sure to ch-ch-check out Mariah’s underwhelming Hip Hop Honors appearance for yourself (below).

Well, that was tough to watch. Unsurprisingly, Twitter responded by essentially side-eyeing the whole performance:

HIGHlarious. Thankfully, the other performances from the night were HIGHLY entertaining, be sure to ch-ch-check them out (below).

Elisabeth Moss Joins Abortion Drama Call Jane

Elisabeth Moss has signed up to play the lead in upcoming real-life women’s rights drama Call Jane.
The 35-year-old actress, who won the gong for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series as well as being recognized for her producing skills in The Handmaid’s Tale at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, will star in My Week with Marilyn director Simon Curtis’ next flick.
According to editors at The Hollywood Reporter, Robbie Brenner, whose credits include Oscar-winning feature Dallas Buyers Club, will produce the true story alongside The Firm’s Jeff Kwatinetz and Kevin McKeon.
Moss will play married woman Jane, who unexpectedly falls pregnant and discovers an underground network of women offering safe abortions in 1960s Chicago.
Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi co-wrote the script, inspired by the movement known as the Jane Collective, officially called the Abortion Counseling Service of Women’s Liberation.
“This script (for Call Jane) is commercial and entertaining, but it’s also really relevant to what is going on with the world today,” Brenner told The Hollywood Reporter. “Women’s rights are important and no one should have the right to control a woman’s body. And that such an idea can be challenged today and that we can go back in time on these issues is scary.”
The film is currently open to financers, with an aim to start production during the first quarter of next year.
Moss will next be seen comedy drama The Square, due out later this year. Also coming up for her is drama The Seagull alongside the likes of Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening and Corey Stoll and she will also appear in 2018 crime comedy Old Man and the Gun opposite Casey Affleck, Donald Glover and Robert Redford.

But I’m doing whatever it takes to take care of my body so I can continue dancing. I’ve raced Indy cars, I’ve played every sport, I consider myself a pretty athletic person, but I’m so sore. I’m so dead. I’m in the sauna, I’m icing. Everything that I’m doing every minute of the day is to make me a better dancer in this competition and make it to the end.”

Carson commented on Frankie’s perseverance:

“This guy is amazing. He’s so hard working and wants to do the best that he can. We’re having a blast.”

He said that while the incident happened years ago, it still very much affects everything he does.

“I’m 31 but feel like I have the creaky, old body of a 71-year-old,” said the actor. “But I’m doing whatever it takes to take care of my body so I can continue dancing. I’ve raced Indy cars, I’ve played every sport, I consider myself a pretty athletic person, but I’m so sore. I’m so dead. I’m in the sauna, I’m icing. Everything that I’m doing every minute of the day is to make me a better dancer in this competition and make it to the end.”

I’m so scared to dance in front of people. I didn’t even know if I could dance, but now that I’m doing it I don’t want to stop any time soon,” cotinued Muniz, who also suffered a “mini stroke” in 2012 at the age of 26. “I’m having the time of my life.”

R. Kelly’s Alleged ‘Sex Cult’ Victim Describes Being ‘Trained’ At 16 To Sexually Please The Singer

Details of their alleged underage relationship are coming out!

So many more R. Kelly scandal details are coming out!

As we previously reported, alleged victim Jerhonda Pace decided to break her nondisclosure agreement in order to bring to light her underage sexual relationship with the singer when she was only 16!

The now 24-year-old sat down with The Real on Monday, describing how she was “trained” by another woman in how to please the star sexually.

Jerhonda explained:

“The trainer — it’s a woman — and she trains you to please him sexually. She trained me for everything I was doing. She told me how to please him and she also taught me what I like… I got invited to his tour bus. So I went out there to his tour bus and you have him naked and you have her naked and I’m looking like, ‘Okay, what is this?’ Because Rob [Kelly] is the one who took my virginity. I was like, ‘Ummm, yeah, so what’s going on?’ And he’s like, ‘Don’t worry about it.’ I guess he saw that I was looking uneasy. That’s when he told me to look at her and he said, ‘She’s going to teach you everything you need to know. So she’s going to please you.’ And he told me to remove my clothes and that’s when me and her engaged in sexual activity. She was doing everything. I didn’t know. I was 16.”

Wow!!!

She also recalled how R. Kelly would physically abuse the women who didn’t obey:

“It’s very frightening. He would slap you in your face. He would physically harm you and he would put you in a room and he would put you in a room and he would lock you in the room for days. For days.”

It wasn’t until she lied to him that she was able to take the opportunity to escape:

“He was preparing for a party at the time. I told him my uncle lived a few doors down and I wanted to go to my uncle’s house to grab some shoes. And he was like, ‘Okay, well when you get there, you get the shoes and you come right back.’ And at that moment, when I knew I got out the house, I was like, ‘I’m not going back. I refuse.’ I wasn’t going back. I lied to get out. I left everything behind. The only thing I had in my hand was a cell phone and that’s because of course you need to communicate with him to get back in. I left everything and I just never looked back.”

Dang!!

Kelly denied the claims when she first spoke out about them, but we wonder what his rep will have to say this time!

Until then, ch-ch-check out Jerhonda’s interview (below)!

Former Fox News Commentator Claims She Was Raped By Anchor Charles Payne In Blistering Lawsuit — & Fox Allegedly Retaliated Against Her After She Reported It

It’s been a little over a week since a Fox News anchor has been accused of something gross — which is apparently how long they can go without facing some sort of sexual misconduct scandal.

On Monday, the network was hit with another lawsuit by a political commentator who claims a network anchor raped her.

In a Manhattan Federal Court suit, former commentator Scottie Nell Hughes (above) alleges that Fox Business anchor Charles Payne (above, insert) raped her, and the network retaliated against her when she reported the incident.

Hughes is accusing the network of “victim-shaming” and leaking fake news to the press that suggested the two pundits had a consensual affair.

The 37-year-old met the Making Money anchor in 2013. According to the suit, the two were in New York that July when Payne “pressured his way into Ms. Hughes’ hotel room for a ‘private discussion'” and raped her.

The 56-year-old Payne then allegedly coerced Hughes into a sexual relationship with him in exchange for “career opportunities and benefits” from 2013 to 2016.

Hughes claims Payne made it clear to her that her appearances on Fox shows would cease to exist if she ended things. When she did try to break it off, he allegedly “became enraged and physically violent.”

After cutting ties with the anchor in 2016, Hughes’ bookings at Fox decreased over a 10-month period before ending completely. Her booking agent was later told by a colleague that Hughes “had an affair with someone at Fox and we were told not to book her.”

In July of 2016, Hughes’ manager reached out to the law firm that was then conducting an internal investigation of Fox amid a storm of sexual harassment scandals involving network CEO Roger Ailes. The lawyers promised to reach out to network execs about getting Hughes off the blacklist.

Hours later, the pundit’s manager got a call from a National Enquirer reporter inquiring about the sour romance between Hughes and Payne — which, according to the suit, was a false story leaked to discredit Hughes.

Payne was temporarily suspended while Hughes’ claims were investigated. The married anchor, who was restored to his on-air position earlier this month, denied Hughes’ “baseless complaint” in a statement from his lawyer on Monday.

The network also denied Hughes’ allegations. A Fox spokeswoman said:

“The latest publicity stunt of a lawsuit filed by (Hughes’ lawyer) Doug Wigdor has absolutely no merit and is downright shameful. We will vigorously defend this.”

But the prosecution isn’t backing down — Wigdor hit back:

“Fox cannot spin its way out of this crisis — especially when only Fox is to blame for what happened. Sadly, nothing has changed at Fox.”

Just another week for the scandalized news network.

Rosie O’Donnell’s Ex-Wife Autopsy Exposed Amid Suicide Rumors!

The autopsy for Michelle Rounds, the deceased ex-wife of Rosie O’Donnell, has been completed, RadarOnline.com has learned via ET reports.

“At this point, the doctor has pended the case,” a spokesperson for the Orange County Medical Examiner’s office in Florida explained. “There was no trauma to the body, but the doctor wanted to do further laboratory tests before she made a decision.”

“Talking about any case, we do toxicology testing on almost every decedent that comes through our office,” continued the spokesperson. “It’s one of those things that when the doctor pends it usually means they are looking at, was it natural causes, or was it an accidental death or a suicide depending on the results of the testing.”

As Radar readers know, Rounds passed away in her home just last week at the age of 46. While sources believe it to be a suicide, the exact cause of her death is still unknown.

Sources say the troubled consultant had attempted suicide before.

O’Donnell, 55, and Rounds finalized their divorce in 2016 after four years of marriage. The comedian was awarded full custody of their daughter Dakota, 4.

According to an insider, Rounds hadn’t seen Dakota in years.

“Dakota wouldn’t even know her if she saw a picture of her,” the insider told Radar.

O’Donnell, while not exposing the reason behind her ex-wife’s passing, alluded to an alleged mental illness after the news broke of the tragedy.

“I am saddened to hear about this terrible tragedy.” she said in to ET in a statement. “Mental illness is a very serious issue affecting many families. My thoughts and prayers go out to Michelle’s family, her wife Krista, and their child.”

According to a source, “Michelle suffered from a lot of things, not just depression. Those close to her are suggesting that drinking and drugs were an issue.”
