Everyone is talking about Serena Williams’ big loss at the women’s final of the United States Open over the weekend. Serena lost to 20-year-old Japanese player Naomi Osaka after the umpire accused her of cheating. Serena confronted the umpire about his accusation. “I don’t cheat. I didn’t get coaching,” Serena said to the umpire. “How could you say that? You owe me an apology. I have never cheated in my life. I have a daughter and I stand for what’s right for her… you stole a point from me. You’re a thief too.”
Serena broke her tennis racket in frustration. Now, people are accusing the umpire of sexism. Serena was fined $17,000. Over the summer, Serena faced sexism when she was criticized for her black catsuit, which helps her blood circulation after her difficult childbirth. The president of the French Open criticized the suit, saying it was disrespectful to the game.
Cardi B and Nicki got into a huge brawl Friday night at the Harper’s Bazaar ICONS Party. Cardi ended up throwing her shoe at Nicki and both ladies had to be held back by security.
Nicki feuded with more than just Cardi B this summer. She fought with her ex Safaree, several radio DJs, numerous rappers, Tiffany Haddish, the cast of “Love & Hip-Hop,” her own record label, her hairstylist, Spotify, Billboard magazine, and seven-month-old baby, Stormi. Nicki also lost it when Travis Scott’s album topped hers and debuted at No. 1. She believes he only got to the top of the charts because Kylie promoted his record to her 114 million Instagram followers.
Nicki apparently plans to give Elvin from “The Cosby Show” $25k! Geoffrey Owens had been working at Trader Joes in New Jersey for 15 months to support his family. A woman posted his picture online and many job shamed him. Tyler Perry came forward right away offering him a role on his OWN show, “The Haves and The Have Nots.”
Geoffrey has signed on for a 10 episode run!

Everyone is still talking about last week’s “Bobby Brown” miniseries. Bobby’s sister Leola is furious about the movie, which was produced by Bobby and his wife Alicia. Leolah believes it depicts Whitney as the villain and Alicia as the hero. Leolah lashed out on facebook. “The fakest movie I ever seen… that is not Alicia… yes Whitney was feisty! But she loved Bobby… why are you all lying for [Alicia]!??? She’s evil! You are sleeping with the devil!” Leolah claims Alicia is turning Bobby against the Brown family and that Bobbi Kristina hated Alicia.
Leolah’s currently looking for a director and writer to do her own movie that will be “real and true.”
