Confessions of a Beauty Product Junkie: Ayelet Natural Skin Care  
Lately I've been approached by natural skin care lines for story coverage and may I say it's opened my eyes to a whole new realm of beauty products.
Ayelet Meshulam's story is unique. She is a former chef, who developed an auto-immune disease that left her with severe allergies and skin irritations. Since nothing she tried worked, she developed her own products using her culinary skills.
Check out my article on her here.

Drake Watch: New Meek Mill Diss "Back to Back" is Fire

Okay, so once upon a time...aka last week Nicki and Taylor Swift had beef over Nicki's VMA tirade. They've since settled the said beef.
The same day? Meek called out Drake for not writing his own raps and so and so forth.
For a while the streets were quiet, then Drizzy dropped "Charged Up" but it just didn't hit hard enough. Meek called it baby lotion.
So, he played like his 'mentor' Aaliyah and dusted himself off and tried again and came back with Back to Back and we're all satisfied.
Some of the jabs stabbed at Meek were making fun of him for opening up for Nicki's Pink Print Tour.
"You love her then you gotta get a world tour / Is that a world tour or your girl's tour?/ I know that you gotta be a thug for her / This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more," 

Funkmaster Flex, you got Meek's rebuttal?

Hulk Hogan Out With WWE

We don't know if he was fired or resigned, but what we do know is that if you search Hulk Hogan on WWE's website, you'll find no trace of his existence.

The Hulkster issued an apology after reports surfaced that the WWE fired him following racist remarks that were made years ago. A report by the National Enquirer no less. Some media outlets were saying he used the N-word towards Dwayne The Rock Johnson.

“Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. This is not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs.”
Hogan‘s lawyer told People that “he decided to resign from WWE because he didn’t want to put them or his family through this.”
However, earlier on Friday the World Wrestling Entertainment media team released this statement:
WWE terminated its contract with Terry Bollea (aka Hulk Hogan). WWE is committed to embracing and celebrating individuals from all backgrounds as demonstrated by the diversity of our employees, performers and fans worldwide.

The alleged rant can be heard in the leaked unauthorized sex tape of the wrestler with his friend's wide. In it he uses the N-word along with other racist works. The Enquirer says he "directed his vulgar and prejudiced hatred at his daughter Brooke, who he accused of sleeping with a black man.
Using language so hate-filled and vile it would shock even his most ardent fans, Hulk brazenly blustered to Heather Clem – the wife of his former pal Bubba “The Love Sponge,” with whom he was covertly filmed having sex with in 2012 – that he was an unabashed 'racist.' 'I guess we’re all a little racist," he crowed on the tape."

What a way to ruin your legacy.

The most EPIC James Corden carpool karaoke.

Home Invasion Robbery at Chris Brown's Home

Okay, I'm pretty sure it wasn't Karreuche.
Armed men burst into Chris Brown's L.A. home early Wednesday morning. The Loyal singer wasn't home, but his poor auntie was.
After hearing noise  outside, she opened the door to find three males with handguns.
The armed men forced their way into the house and locked his aunt in a closet. The suspects eventually fled in an unknown vehicle toward an unknown direction, according to LAPD.
The Los Angeles news station KTLA 5 reports, the men robbed the 8,000 sq. ft residence of cash, a laptop and a cellphone. Police said it was unclear how the robbers entered the house, which is equipped with a 16-camera security system.

As we know, this is the 2nd time C.B.'s home has been hit with an intruder. 
A few months back, a woman was found in his his food, destroying his daughter's clothing, etc. That time he actually came home to find the woman inside the home and even took to the Gram to call her out.

50 Cent Files for Bankruptcy, But He's Not Broke  
Everyone calm down.
Fitty, aka Ferrari F-50, is okay. He's not going to have to go back to slangin' crack in Jamaica Queens. He did the talk show circuit the other day and basically alludes to his bankruptcy filing as a business move.
50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this week after having to shell out $5million in a sex tape lawsuit. A jury recently awarded  Lavonia Leviston the cash after they determined the hip-hop star leaked a sex tape of her and another man.

50 tells  E! news:
I'm taking the precautions that any other good businessperson would take in this situation. You know when you're successful and stuff, you become a target. I don't wanna be a bulls eye. I don't want anybody to pick me as the guy that they just come to with astronomical claims and go through all that."
"Walt Disney has filed bankruptcy. Donald Trump has filed bankruptcy," the hip-hop star continued to E! News. "It means you're reorganizing your finances, but it does stop things from moving forward that you don't want moving forward."
"I gotta descent legal team," he added. "You don't have to worry."

E! got the bankruptcy documents that says 50's  assets are valued between $10 million and $50 million and his liabilities are also between the same range. 50 also says the debts are primarily consumer debts and lists his estimated number of creditors as between 1 and 49.
50's attorney said in a statement Monday, "This filing for personal bankruptcy protection permits Mr. Jackson to continue his involvement with various business interests and continue his work as an entertainer, while he pursues an orderly reorganization of his financial affairs."

So guys....he's not broke.

Welp, there's finally a video for it and Drake channels Justin Beiber, Wrecking Ball Miley Cyrus,  Bound 2 Kanye, Obama, LeBron, Baby Drake, Oprah, Obama and many more. Including OJ Simpson and disgraced Toronto mayor Rob Ford.
Unfortunately due to Drizzy's exclusive contract with Apple, you have to peep the video here.
MTV.COM says, "The video premiered through Apple Connect, and also came with the announcement that Aubrey will be hosting his own show on Beats 1. The show will air on Saturday, July 11 at 6 p.m. EST. He also dropped a new song with Majid Jordan, called “My Love,” which you can purchase over at iTunes."

Watch out Bey, Jay and Tidal.

Justin Beiber Literally Shows His Ass on Instagram...So Chrissy Teigen One Ups Him

So on Tuesday, the Beibs tried to "break the internet" or at least crack it by literally showing us his derriere on the Gram.

A photo posted by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

Which, caused other celebrities to make fun of Miley.
But who really took the prize was everyone's favorite, Chrissy Teigen.
She showed off her hubby's cute booty on Instagram..and actually tagged the photosharing site to the pic because she's at war with them not letting her free her nipples.

I got to admit, Drizzy's beard has got me feeling some type of way lately.

He heightened the thirst factor by posting his hot new body as well.
Hot body + his beard...Aubrey's got us all hot and bothered.

I'm not much of a fan of facial hair, but I'm digging this look on Drake, and it seems like I'm not the only one.

Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick Call it Quits

Such sad news coming out of Calabasas.
After years of putting up with this antics and 3 kids later, Kourtney Kardashian, 36, finally dumps, 32 year old,  Scott Disick.
The couple split over the 4th of July weekend after photos surfaced of Scott getting cozy with another woman in Monte Carlo.
E!online says Kardashian broke it off because of the kids.
Allegedly he's been running around saying he's single and hanging out with friends who aren't a very good influence on him. 
Fans of Keeping up with the Kardashians have seen Disick and Kardashian's roller coaster ride of a relationship.
In the Kourtney & Khloe take the Hamptons spinoff, we all saw Disick go to the hospital after an all -day binge on prescription drugs and alchohol. We also saw it when the couple was featured on the KKUWTK spinoffs in Miami and New York.
The couple has been dating since 2006 and briefly broke up in 2010 when Kourtney believed he had a drinking problem.
They then reconciled, but it is obvious Scott has his demons and is still dealing with them.
Poor Mason, Penelope and well as Kourt.
Hopefully, this is the wakeup call Disick needs to get his act together.

Throwback Monday

This video brings back so many memories for me at the 18 and under clubs in the city and when it was cool to yell out Yee and dance with my thizz face in full effect.
Personally, I prefer the remix to this song, but there's no video.
