Rapper Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose, the mother of his son, are officially husband and wife.  Deets on how the twosome officially tied the knot inside…

 

 

With a formal wedding going down this fall, 29-year-old Amber Rose & 25-year-old Wiz Khalifa got the technicalities out the way today and became husband and wife.

Not sure if they went down to the Justice of The Peace or had a small ceremony with just a few folks, if anyone, in attendance, but they indeed signed stheir papers today to make their union official.

Just a few days after filing for a marriage license, Wiz tweeted a few minutes ago:

Me and Amber got married today. Weddings this fall. Thought I’d let yall know

Sebastian’s parents have been calling themselves husband and wife for several months now, so the paperwork now makes it real.

NeNe Leakes OFFICIALLY Greenlit For “I Dream Of NeNe” Wedding Spinoff, Her Half Sister Is Threatening To EXPOSE Her!

 photo NeNeLeakesNeNeLeakesinNYCY-BcuCoXIgax_zps908c4a23.jpg

NeNe Leakes‘ much talked abut spinoff show is official.  Her wedding special, "I Dream Of NeNe" will air on Bravo soon.  Deets inside, plus the newest drama with NeNe’s half sister who’s threatening to EXPOSE her!

She’s planning a re-wedding with her ex husband Gregg Leakes.  And, of course, it’ll be all captured for the BRAVO cameras as the network has ordered a full order of NeNe’s new wedding themed spinoff show, "I Dream Of NeNe."

NeNe’s enlisting Tiffany Cook for her nuptials (the same person who did co-star Porsha Stewart‘s wedding) and Marlo Hampton will return as part of her bridal party.  Co-star Cynthia Bailey is reportedly also a bridesmaid.

The show will premiere this fall, so get ready.  NeNe’s also made another appearance as Coach Roz tonight on "Glee," and is waiting to see if the NBC show "The New Normal," which she also stars in, gets renewed.

But it isn’t all white roses on the home front for Mrs. Leakes.  Her half sister Kenya Sherman (pictured above side by side with her and NeNe’s mom)–you know, the one she accused co-star Phaedra Parks of contacting, filming with and using to dig up dirt on NeNe–is extra pissy these days.

Apparently, Kenya wasn’t feeling everything NeNe was saying during last Sunday’s reunion show when she was going hard at Phaedra for having ill intentions for inviting said half sister to baby Ayden‘s birthday party.

The half sister says NeNe has cut off ties with her and the rest fo the family,a nd she’s pissed she’s acting like the victim.  Now, half sister Kenya has been using her Twitter account to threaten to expose NeNe.

Apparently, some family drama went down–that involved money and schemes headed off by NeNe & Gregg that affected the family–and things haven’t been right since.

And we hear all that tea was spilled during filming of this past season when Phaedra got half sister Kenya to come sit down with her to dish on camera.  Some type of mysterious way, THAT footage ended up on the cutting room floor.  Kenya tweeted:

I DID FILM FOR A BDAY PARTY ON RHOA BUT @NeNeLeakes THREATEN TO QUIT SHOW & THEY DIDNT SHOW IT #TRUTH

Kenya, who calls herself a "successful" celebrity hairstylist who lives in Atlanta, is also pissed NeNe keeps calling her HALF sister, since they have the same mom.  I mean, technically, they ARE half sisters.  But I feel what she’s saying…

Anywho, here’s what Kenya’s been saying on her Twitter:

Hey well at least we know ppl can manipulate networks just to get a FREE wedding & exposure SMH

it’s funny how some ppl will lie cheat steal & even throw their family under the bus for FAME #illuminati? No just a #FRAUD

I’m not doin this to defame @NeNeLeakes BUT to clear up the "sex, lies & reality tv" hype to "FAME"

I’m NOT half sis to @NeNeLeakes we have the SAME mother we are biological & she lived with me when she met Greg #KnowAllTheTea

I’m estranged sis of @neneleakes & there’s more than what meets the public or reality tv eye #trust

Oh, but there’s more.  Kenya posted the above pic as today’s Throwback Thursday image just to prove her point even further.  She said, "Me and my sisters."

 photo BIKfiexCIAEZu2ujpg_large_zps394d6288.jpg

And it’s Kenya’s Twitter profile description that has us in tears:

ESTRANGED & BIOLOGICAL SISTER TO @NENELEAKES (Only if @bravotv knew about the #rhoa diva as I do) & Owner of Salon N.Y.C Celebrity Stylist & Custom Wig Maker

Chiiiile…..aint nothing like family foolery….

Photobucket

It’s official.  After reports surfaced earlier this week of insiders claiming Brandy got engaged during the Christmas Holiday, it’s now been 100% confirmed.  Deets inside, plus a pic from her and Ryan Press’ Hawaiian getaway…

They been dating for two years, and he just put a ring on it.  Brandy’s rep just confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that Ryan popped the question during the Holiday, and the twosome are set to be hitched!

It will be the first (real) marriage for 33-year-old Brandy.  And after chick told everyone who would listen just how much she loved herself some Ryan, it’s good to see that he’s head over heels as well.  The twosome have been attached at the hip (pictured together above at the 2012 ‘VH1 Divas’ show) since they started dating, and Brandy confirmed on ‘Wendy’ that they already live together.

And insider told Us Weekly, "They are thrilled and happy and Brandy feels this is so right."

Ryan will become stepdad to Brandy’s 10-year-old daughter Sy’Rai.  The "Wildest Dreams" singer has written songs about music industry exec Ryan and gushed about her boo in interviews, so the engagement comes as no surprise.

And just how are the love birds celebrating?  They’re currently living it up in Hawaii.  Brandy posted a pic of her happy self saying, "Hawaii sun all in my face:) having a great time with my love @ryanpress215".

EXCLUSIVE: Nicci Gilbert OFFICIALLY NIXED From “R&B Divas”!

Photobucket

Nicci Gilbert, the headstrong singer/fashion designer on "R&B Divas" has officially been fired (or nicely asked to leave) from the cast, TheYBF.com has exclusively learned. Get the deets on why she was dropped inside and where the show is headed for a spinoff…..

Though "R&B Divas" has become a success for TV ONE, TheYBF.com has learned that former Brownstone member and show co-creator, Nicci Gilbert, was given the axe.  A source from the show’s executive production team told us that market research they conducted showed that viewers just didn’t connect to Nicci.  In fact, we were told that 95% of those polled said that Nicci was their LEAST favorite diva.  WOMP.

The production team doesn’t want to announce the firing publicly until a cast for season two is in place…but Nicci has already been shown the door.  Also, an L.A. spinoff is in the works for the show ad that cast will be announced soon.

But it doesn’t seem like Nicci is letting the news get her down.  The "Curvy Diva" still has her Curvato clothing line and even Retweeted a fan’s comment about getting her and her former co-stars on BET’s Black Girls Rock.  At least she doesn’t seem to hold a grudge against the other ladies.

Who do you think should be amongst the next group of selected "R&B Divas"?

“I am deeply saddened by the loss of my dear friend and business partner Chris Lighty.

Chris has been an important part of my business and personal growth for a decade. He was a good friend and advisor who helped me develop as an artist and businessman. My prayers are with his family. He will be greatly missed.”

Chris is credited with brokering 50′s deal with Vitamin Water that eventually led to the rapper’s $ 100M+ payday.

 

BYE BYE BENTLEY: Jennifer Williams’ Whip Officially Repo’d

Looks like former "Basketball Wives" star Jennifer Williams will be on somebody’s car lot looking for a new whip this weekend.  Because her 2006 Bentley has just been officially repossessed…and it’s headed to auction.

Check out the pics of the ride getting loaded up inside….

Jennifer says her ex-husband Eric Williams, who she is still in a bitter divorce battle with, stopped making the payments on the vehicle.  And over $ 90,000 has not been paid to Toyota Motor Credit company. 

Apparently Jennifer had no desire to kick in the payments herself, because after Toyota put out notice (and a lawsuit) previously saying they were looking for her and the ride in order to repossess it, payments still weren’t made.  So bye bye Bentley:

 

TMZ copped the pics of the repossession in action.

Seems like Jen couldn’t care less though.  The Lucid Cosmetics owner was busy in the Cayman Islands last week parlaying on a boat saying, “Speed boating thru the Cayman Islands! Yes I’m driving the crew! #boss”:

Sources report that Jennifer told Eric to come pick up the car himself since he stopped making payments on it.  Obviously the repo man got there first.  Oh wells….
