Porsha Williams: I’m Pregnant… and Scared!

Porsha Williams has a reason to be excited.

And also a reason to be apprenhensive.

And it’s actually the same reason for both emotions…

… the reality star is PREGNANT!

The veteran Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member is expecting a child with boyfriend Dennis McKinley, she gushes to People Magazine.

“When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited [but] I had mixed feelings,” Williams explains, expounding on the reason why:

“The other feeling that I had beside excitement was fear.

“I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy.

So just the fear of, ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions that you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before.”

(A myomectomy is a surgical procedure to remove uterine fibroids. These common noncancerous growths appear in the uterus, typically during childbearing years.)

At the time Willams gave this interview to People, she had not yet had an official medical scan of the baby.

She said she’ll feel far more relaxed and be able to “wrap my mind around” being a mother once everything comes back okay.

No matter what, however, she stressed that she has the greatest partner imaginable in McKinley.

This is what she said to People about him:

“The thought of me getting that blessing after praying for it for so long and getting that blessing with someone who is just as excited as me – it’s Dennis’ first child, just like me – and it’s something we’ve both always wanted…

“It’s like a dream come true.”

Williams wasn’t even done saying amazing things about her man, who she started dating a few months ago after having known him for years;

“I believe he’s probably shed more tears during the process than me. It’s just the sweetest moment of my life right now.”

It sounds like Porsha had basically given up hope of becoming a mother.

She wasn’t really trying to get pregnant, but then… presto!

Amazing, right?

“The pregnancy came from the left, but it definitely has brought us closer together because you realize when it sets in that you are actually bringing a life to this world, that you have become family overnight,” the reality star said.

She concluded:

“So now a lot of the things that we had talked about are a reality, and we work really hard at wanting to be a good couple and build a strong foundation for our new family that we’re going to have.”

CONGRATULATIONS TO PORSHA WILLIAMS!

Wendy Williams to Justin Bieber: Hailey Baldwin’s Too Young For You, Bro!

Wendy Williams has a long history of saying the worst possible thing in every imaginable scenario.

But amazingly, she might find that a large segment of the celeb-obsessed population is in total agreement with her latest hot take.

As you’ve likely heard by now, Justin Bieber married Hailey Baldwin in a small private ceremony in New York City last week.

Justin is 24 and Hailey is 21, which for most of the 20th century was about the age at which people got married.

But these days, that’s considered to be rather young for such a consequential decision, particularly as the divorce rate in this country creeps ever closer to 150 percent.

Throw in fame, an extremely short engagement and a massive wealth discrepancy, and the likelihood of Justin and Hailey waltzing to “One Less Lonely Girl” at their 75th anniversary begins to look rather minuscule.

Ever the Debbie Downer, Wendy was quick to pour cold water on this happy young couple’s hopes and dreams by pointing out that the odds are very much against Justin and Hailey.

“They’ve been on and off allegedly for years, but I don’t care what your background is, these days, 21 is too young to be getting married,” Williams said on a recent episode of her show.

“I know she’s a model, but she’s not one of the biggies. The biggest thing that’s happened to her is that she’s with Bieber,” Wendy added.

“The biggest thing that’s happened to this family in a long time is that they’re attached to Bieber, who’s attached to 250 million dollars.

“I just feel like 21 is too young to be getting married, and he’s only 24, and that’s still too young in this particular day and time,” the daytime host continued.

Williams went on to slam Hailey’s father, Stephen Baldwin, for his alleged eagerness to hop aboard the Bieber gravy train.

“Shame on you Stephen Baldwin for co-signing on your 21-year-old daughter getting married,” she said.

“I think the Baldwins look at Bieber as a cash cow… I think Stephen Baldwin likes to be more relevant again to young people in pop culture and Bieber is a quick way to do that,” Williams added.

As though her pessimism wasn’t abundantly apparent already, Williams went on to add:

“I don’t believe that this is a marriage that will last.”

We’re torn on this one, as Stephen Baldwin is a known sketch-ball, and he probably is thinking about how his daughter’s relationship will affect his career.

But on the other hand, Wendy Williams is the absolute worst, and it sucks that she’s going to such great lengths to rain on this young couple’s parade.

So now we all have one more reason to root for Justin and Hailey — if they last, it’ll royally piss off daytime’s queen of mean.

Stars Blast Cartoonist for “Racist, Sexist” Depiction of Serena Williams

Serena Williams may not have another U.S. Open title to add to her trophy case at home.

But the greatest tennis player in women’s history has the support of many celebrities in Hollywood, that’s for certain.

Allow us to explain…

Serena Williams yells

On Saturday evening, Williams fell in the final round of the U.S. Open, losing in two sets to Naomi Osaka.

But the match was very unfortunately marred by three penalties assessed to Serena in that final set by chair umpire Carlos Ramos.

First, he warned Serena about being actively coached by her coach, who was sitting in Williams’ official box in the stands.

Then, he rewarded a point to Osaka after Serena smashed her racquet in frustration.

Finally, he rewarded an entire game to Osaka after Serena told Ramos – while sitting in her seat on the sideline, in between games – that he was a “thief” for taking away the aforementioned point.

This was an unprecendented move by a chair umpire in a Grand Slam Final.

It led to a lot of outrage online.

There were those who believe Serena did NOT deserve such a harsh punishment, along with those who felt terrible on behalf of Osaka, whose first-ever major tournament victory has been overshadowed by this controversy.

And there were those who thought Serena acted inappropriately and immaturely and deserved to be docked that game.

It’s safe to say that cartoon Mark Knight falls into this second camp.

racist cartoon

The artist posted to Twitter on Monday a drawing he made that appeared in the Australian newspaper The Herald Sun.

It depicts the 36-year-old tennis star as an angry baby jumping all over her tennis racquet — and it has prompted quite a string of responses by quite a number of celebrities.

“Well done on reducing one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes and turning a second great sportswoman into a faceless prop,” J.K. Rowling Tweeted, for example.

Added actress Cynthia Erivo:

“This reprehensible and racist. It also warps the actual event and misses the point of what actually happened @Knightcartoons.

“You should be ashamed of yourself. Yet another white guy disrespecting a black woman because you still don’t see us as multi dimensional human beings.”

Erivo tweet

It certainly is fair to ask at least one question, no matter where you stand on Serena’s recent actions:

Why is Serena’s opponent in this cartoon white and blonde?

Why has Knight chosen to contrast Williams with someone that comes across thos way?

Osaka is of Haitian and Japanese descent.

It’s therefore difficult to read into Knight’s above depiction as anything but, yes, racist.

“Hey @Knightcartoons just change your name to KKK Cartoons … Racist piece of s—t!” wrote Kathy Griffin.

Considering how often male players smash their racquets and how loudly they berate umpires without repercussion, many supporters of both Serena and humanity in general believe Ramos acted out of a sexist impuluses on Saturday.

“Women are treated differently in most arenas of life,” wrote former tenns champion Billie Jean King in an op-ed in The Washington Post, adding:

“This is especially true for women of color. And what played out on the court yesterday happens far too often.”

We tend to agree.

But even if you don’t, can we all agree that this cartoon is disgusting?
