The Bravo personality posted the (above) photo with the heartbreaking message:

“Today I lost the only woman in the world who has ever loved me unconditionally. My grandmother who raised me from 3 days old passed away. Thank you Jehovah for sending me your Angel who taught me everything I know about love, compassion, strength, kindness, selflessness, forgiveness, family, education, brains over beauty, inner beauty, strength, respect for your elders, being true to myself….she has helped mold me into the woman I am. She truly was my best friend.”

On her hit reality TV show, Miss USA has been vocal about the strong bond she’s had with her grandma, as opposed to the tumultuous relationship she’s had with her biological mother.

Even though losing Doris is horrible, Moore is grateful for the moments they’ve shared together, especially when Doris met her new husband Marc Daly.

“Thank you Jehovah for allowing my last moment with her last month to be the last and for her to have met my loving husband. I truly believe she waited until she knew that I finally found someone to love and cherish me the way she did. She could not rest until she knew I would be taken care of by someone who deserved me. She didn’t recognize me at first but when I introduced them but she lit up with so much joy that my heart became overwhelmed. She approved and it was the happiest day of my life.”

Overall, the 46-year-old knows her grandma will always be by her side, and will always cherish her “unconditional love.”

“Thank you momma for being the best woman I have ever met in my life. Thank you for approving of me and thank you for letting the world know how proud you are of me. I thank you for my life. I owe the world to you. I know you will never leave my side in life or after. I am eternally grateful to you. Thank you for loving me. #unconditionallove #God#gonebutneverforgotten #family #myangel”

R.I.P. Doris. You will be missed.

Coco Austin Defends Her Braids After Getting Heat Online — ‘It’s Not A Race War’

Coco Austin

Coco Austin is not messing around!

Ice-T‘s wife proudly debuted braids last week on Instagram… and after getting a ton of backlash online, the 38-year-old has taken to social media to respond to the controversy over her new “summer style” that she dubbed “Da Coco Swoop”!

The momma-of-one argued in a video post:

“So, recently I got social media’s panties in a bunch because I did braids to my hair. This is so stupid. I can’t believe I’m talking about it, and I believe this shouldn’t be turned out to be a race thing. This is what happened: I did my braids and I called them the Coco Swoop. I name all my styles that I do to myself. These are called the Coco Swoop. The braids before were called the Bo Derek braids. And it’s a Coco-ism. I’ve always done it.”

She added:

“Why can’t we all rename hairstyles or braids? That sounds so stupid. Why is everybody claiming something they shouldn’t? I know braids have been around for thousands of years. Don’t you think I know that? If I want to wear a pineapple on my head, then I should be able to wear a pineapple on my head and call it the Pineapple Cocowop. I don’t know. You see where I’m going with this? Why is everybody hating?”

In part two, the model didn’t understand why everyone was making this a “race war”:

Beyoncé, she does this hairstyle, and now it’s the ‘Lemonade’, but no one’s gonna get mad at her, right? So, at the end of the day, this shouldn’t be a race war. This should be a ‘human thing.’ Right? Everybody should be able to do it. It’s a ‘human thing.’ Give that a shot. Not a race war. It has nothing to do with race.”

Greyson Chance Officially Comes Out As Gay!

no title

Live your truth, Greyson Chance!

On Wednesday, the singer officially came out as gay on Instagram.

According to the musician, he decided to go public with the news after receiving “a message from a brave individual.” The 19-year-old adds:

“Such message inspired me to shed light on an aspect of my private life which I have kept distant from my career in music.”

Although he knew he was gay when he was 16, he was still in the process of coming to terms with his sexuality. Additionally, he doesn’t find the subject to be that “interesting.”

“I decided not to publicize my sexuality largely due to a matter of privacy, as I was still trying to find comfort and confidence within my own skin. Further, I always found conversations regarding music, politics, art, books – and the greatness of Nas’ catalog – to be far more interesting than what type of guy I was into. This is still true today.”

Overall, he encourages his fans to be their authentic selves, and to discover their inner voice!

“While this message is most definitely overdue, I encourage anyone who is navigating their sexuality to devote as much time as they need to the process of finding self-confidence, self-acceptance, and self-love. Hell, for me, it took years to write this message. Nevertheless, I figured now was the time to let a few more friends know that I am happy, I am here for you, and I am proud of who I am.”

Bravo, Greyson! BRAVO!

Amber Rose Reminds You Her New Boyfriend 21 Savage Isn’t Going Anywhere In Candid Post

Amber Rose continues to defend her new boyfriend!

Amber Rose is very happy in her new relationship with 21 Savage, and she doesn’t care who knows it!

After defending the Atlanta rapper on her podcast last week, the 33-year-old decided to fully put their love out there with a new pic of them (above) on Instagram Sunday night!

She captioned it:

“It’s pretty amazing waking up every morning feeling love like this. I’ve cried endlessly and been hurt a lot in my life, I’ve been abused, talked to like I wasn’t shit, been gaslighted and Slut shamed by men that I once loved and cared about. So I’m so thankful that God brought this amazing person in my life who genuinely has my back and is ready to ‘pull up’ to defend my honor by any means. Maybe he’s just as broken as me and that’s why we’re perfect for each other but either way he’s not going anywhere and neither am I.”

Technically, the momma of one made things IG official as they only debuted their love on their stories, so this is a pretty big deal!!

Especially since the 24-year-old was jetting his new flame to his hometown of Atlanta!

While Amber has yet to post pics from their trip, she also posted a video of them putting on the PDA just to really show her haters:

So there you have it!

They’re ON!!

EXCLUSIVE! Shahs Of Sunset Star Golnesa ‘GG’ Gharachedaghi Discusses Her One Month Marriage, Anger Issues, & MORE!

no title

Just like Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi‘s temper, season 6 of Shahs Of Sunset is going to be EXPLOSIVE!

As we reported, the hit Bravo series returns this month, and judging from the trailer, there is going to be TONS of juicy drama!

Recently, we interviewed GG ahead of the premiere where she tells us EXCLUSIVELY what you can expect from the new season of Shahs!

Related: GG Hit With Restraining Order!

While Miz Gharachedaghi has had a roller coaster relationship with several of her castmates in the past six years, she is “relatively fine” with them… for now!

“Well, it’s no surprise that I’m known to speak my mind and escalate matters into aggressive situations but there won’t be a great deal of that on my end this season. There are definitely some heated situations and I won’t spoil it by telling you who it involves, but I’m relatively fine with most of the other Shahs cast… at least right now.”

If you watch the show, you know that the 35-year-old is known to get heated, and has struggled with anger issues ever since the first episode! Can we expect a calm GG this season??

“Me? Anger issues? What are you taking about? Hahaha! This season I have made almost a complete 180° change when it comes to my anger. I checked myself into 2 different facilities last year and did a lot of work on myself. I was able to understand myself a little more which allowed me to be less angry with the world. I’m excited to show everyone we are all capable of change. Lots of people suffer with ego or anger issues and the best advice I can give is to get back in touch with your true self. When we truly love our authentic selves, we don’t get mad at others trying to hurt us because we see the hurt that must be inside of them. But don’t get it twisted, I’m made of fire and I still have my moments. Just not as often.”

In March, the Bravolebrity shocked the media when she ended her relationship with Shalom after being married for ONE MONTH! Will her split-second nuptials be televised??

“My relationship had only started a few weeks before the season began, so everyone will see my relationship run its course up until the proposal. Viewers will definitely see some intense situations between me and my soon to be ex-husband. It will be pretty difficult for me to watch and relive some of those moments.”

As seen in the trailer, the cast takes a trip to Israel where they get detained for questioning! Fortunately, GG clears up what happened.

“I’ve traveled to many countries around the world and it’s not unusual for officials to profile people and want to question them and their purpose for entering the country. Yes, we did get detained in Israel, but we were released after being individually questioned.”

If you’re one of her 477K Instagram followers, you know Golnesa isn’t afraid to speak her mind when it comes to politics. However, if you’re offended by what GG has to say, feel free to unfollow! She simply doesn’t care!

“I’ve never been a political person and quite frankly, I’ve always steered clear of those topics. But with our current presidential situation, I believe everyone became a bit more involved in politics and publicly voicing their opinions. I was born in Los Angeles and people still comment “If you don’t like it here then go home” and it confuses me. I mean, I thought I am home by being in my country of birth. So, I post political topics to let people know that I am a proud American but I will never stop fighting for my ethnic origins as well as for all ethnicities. I believe in equality. Every time I post about these things I lose about 1,000 or so followers but let’s face it, if they want to stop following me because I support peace and equality, then they’re doing me a favor by pushing that “unfollow” button.”

Since 2015, the reality TV personality has been vocal about her battle with rheumatoid arthritis, and even had to get a boob and butt job because her illness left her figure out of proportion. Sadly, her condition has not improved, nor is she receiving much support from her costars.

“Unfortunately, my health has not gotten any better. I’m still working around the clock with my doctors and specialists so we can find the right medication plan for me. I have come across an amazing natural product that has helped me in so many ways. Because of this, I have decided to create my own line from this natural product so that I can share it. As for my friends being more supportive, nothing has changed. I pray they never have to deal with a similar health issue because it’s truly debilitating and it hurts more when you feel like nobody believes you or cares.”

For more GG, watch the season 6 premiere July 16 on Bravo!

This Pregnant Fitness Star Has An Inspiring Message About Embracing Cellulite & ‘Bodily Changes’!

That glow too!

Cellulite and all, Emily Skye is embracing her beautiful, pregnant figure!

The fitness star, who is four months pregnant with her first child, dedicated an inspiring post about her growing baby bump and the other changes her body is displaying!

Sharing a bikini snap (above) this week, Emily wrote in the lengthy Instagram caption:

“I have cellulite on my butt & thighs & my muscle mass & strength continues to decrease… but you know what?! I’m absolutely loving all of the changes my body (& mind) is making.
I know many women struggle with bodily changes during pregnancy and I probably would have too years ago but now I’m completely embracing and celebrating these changes. Every little change excites me and makes me happy because I’m growing @recdedmond’s & my little person which is incredible! ?”

And for those going through a similar situation, the fit expert continued:

“I know going through these changes can be difficult for many people but just remember the BIG picture & what is truly most important. How we look or having some extra body fat or cellulite is insignificant.
I know I’ve said this before but I just want to remind you all (pregnant or not) that you are amazing and beautiful and how much body fat you have doesn’t change that. It’s always good to get some perspective and remind yourself of what’s most important in life. ??”

Aww! It’s some much needed perspective!

Emily also shared a new post about some of the other changes she’s been feeling while pregnant:

So exciting!

We hope Emily enjoys every minute and movement!
