Shepherd’s quick wit, family views, observations of news headlines, political views, and community actions will be a fresh addition to the morning show.

Sherri does not hold back on her what she thinks. This week she shared her thoughts on prenups and reunited with her fellow Dancing with the Stars alum Gladys Knight. Listen to the hilarious commentary here.

On Christian Prenups:Christians believe you’re not supposed to do a prenup. They don’t talk about prenups.They talk about dowries in the bible, but not prenups because it’s in the event of divorce. They believe you are setting yourself up for divorce if you get a pre-nup.”

On Competing Against Gladys Knight On Dancing With The Stars: “She fooled everybody. She could dance but every week she said ‘I on’t think I’m going to dance this week. My knee – I’m going to go home.’ So everybody banked on Gladys Knight going home and every week she got out there and jammed.”

The Tom Joyner Morning Show airs in syndication weekdays from 6:00am – 10:00am ET.  The show is also available to stream online on BlackAmericaWeb.com and via the Tom Joyner Morning Show app. The Tom Joyner Morning Show is distributed by REACH Media Inc, a part of the Radio One family.

 

Dr. Dre Disputes Suge’s Claim that He Asked for a Peace Meeting

dr dre & suge knight

As far as Suge Knight is concerned, Dr. Dre wants it known that he did not ask Knight to come to a film set so they could make peace.

Sources say Dre is basically taking a “Oh, hell no” attitude at reports that say Suge is claiming Terry Carter — the man he struck and killed — called and asked him to come to the set because Dr. Dre wanted to end their beef.

Here’s what TMZ is reporting:

Less than an hour before the hit and run, Suge went to another set location but was thrown out by Dre’s security. Sources connected with Suge say he got a call from Carter who said he had just spoken with Dre and the Beats mogul said he wanted Suge to return so he could make peace.

Our Dre sources say it never happened, and note it’s pretty convenient the only other person who has first-hand knowledge is dead because Suge killed him.

As for why Dre and his people didn’t want Suge around … we’re told it’s because they view Suge as having a big fat target on his back. They say the shooting last Summer where Suge was hit 6 times is proof enough … he has enemies, and Dre of course didn’t want himself nor any of his people in the line of fire.

 

Here We Go Again: Porsha Williams Fires Back at Claudia Jordan

porsha-williams 3The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Claudia Jordan blasted co-star Porsha Williams as a prostitute who sleeps with rich and married men to maintain her lifestyle.

Williams clapped back at Jordan’s accusations while turning the tables on her co-star who chose to come after her out of the blue, according to Sister 2 Sister.

“Claudia’s attack was out of nowhere and I’ll always pray for my enemies and hope they find peace in their lives,” Williams said. “She and I were not necessarily considered friends, but I had never spoken ill towards her, of her or tried to call her out.”

Williams talked about her professional relationship with Jordan who wanted more of a friendship with her. She didn’t feel like opening up to Jordan in that particular way.

Nevertheless, she learned about Jordan’s career troubles, and how she burned bridges when she was fired from her show in New York and couldn’t afford her lifestyle anymore.

She added, “RHOA was her last shot at the stardom she desired. If you add up all that heartbreak and shattered dreams that will leave you a thirsty 41-year-old has-been. Claudia is a “Mini Kenya” just as I predicted when we met, even though she swore that her friendship with Kenya would not affect her actions towards me but clearly that was a lie. I just wish she would get her facts straight.”

Williams believes Jordan is envious of her. She claims Jordan is trying to distract folks from her shady past by accusing Williams of acts Jordan is actually known to have been caught in.

“I’ve learned that sometimes when women are envious of other women they will project their past onto them by any means like calling me all the names that have followed Claudia and Kenya their entire careers such as whore, gold digger, home wrecker etc.,” she said. “Claudia believes if she can slander my name it will make her look better and distract people from Googling her and her shady past.”

ABC’s freshman hit “How to Get Away With Murder” will be returning for a second season, according to star Viola Davis, who tweeted and posted the news on her Facebook.

Though ABC has not made an official announcement, it’s pretty much a no-brainer that a renewal was in order. According to Variety, “HTGAWM” is the season’s No. 2-rated new show in adults 18-49, behind only Fox’s “Empire.” It has also been the top series in its Thursday 10 p.m. timeslot with every original episode to date.

When it returned with its Jan. 29 midseason premiere, 9 of 10 trending U.S. Twitter topics we’re related to “TGIT” shows.

The show picked up its first SAG award this month for Viola Davis‘ portrayal as Professor Annalise Keating.

As previously reported, Davis made history, along with “Orange Is the New Black’s” Uzo Aduba at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, marking the first time two African American women won for best television actress in both the drama (“HTGAWM”) and comedy (“OITNB”) categories.

“I think Shonda Rhimes has created narratives that include us and that’s good,” Davis said about the series bringing diversity to TV. “I think that’s something that everyone should do.”

Suge Knight/Dr. Dre Beef Preceded Fatal Hit & Run (Report)

Suge Knight was reportedly asked to visit the set where he ended up running over and killing his friend Thursday night – so that he could finally make peace with Dr. Dre.

TMZ reports:

Shortly before the collision, Suge had gone to another location where the commercial for “Straight Outta Compton” was being shot and got into a physical push and shove with Dr. Dre’s security. Some off-duty officers saw the altercation and ordered Suge to leave.

Our Suge sources say a short time later Terry Carter called Suge and said he had contacted Dre and was told to bring Suge by the next location where they could work out their problems. Suge says he took Carter up on the offer, believing it would be a peaceful meeting, but when he arrived he got jumped before he even got out of his truck.

As we first reported … it all ended with Suge running over Terry’s head, killing him. Suge is now in a downtown L.A. jail after being arrested for murder. His bail is set at $2 million.

As you probably know, Dre and Suge owned Death Row Records but their partnership blew apart and Dre left the business and went to Interscope.

Suge’s people say they can easily prove Terry called Suge but obviously there’s only one person now who can recount the conversation.

 

TLC Pics Ron Fair to Produce Their Crowdsourced ‘Last Album’

Virgin Records CCO/EVP Ron Fair attend City Of Hope's 10th Anniversary 'Songs Of Hope' on June 4, 2014 in Brentwood, California

TLC’s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, 43, and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, 44, are seeking songwriters and producers for their Kickstarter-funded fifth and final album, and although few details are set, veteran producer/label executive Ron Fair — most recently Virgin’s chief creative officer — has signed on as executive producer, reports Billboard.

His track record (Christina Aguilera, the Black Eyed Peas, Mary J. Blige, among many others) suggests high-profile collaborations may be in the works.

“The return of TLC is surrounded by incredible positivity,” Fair says. “The entire creative community of artists, producers and songwriters is invited to the celebration.”

TLC reached its Kickstarter fundraising goal of $150,000 in just three days, collecting nearly $235,000 by Jan. 28 (led by a $5,000 contribution from Katy Perry).

TLC’s Chilli told Billboard that longtime collaborator Dallas Austin (who co-wrote the act’s breakthrough “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg,” as well as later hits “Creep” and “Unpretty”) will be involved in production, and that Ne-Yo — who penned its 2013 reunion track “Meant to Be” — will work with them if his schedule permits.

One person whose voice may not be represented on the album, however, is Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, who died in a car accident in 2002.

“When we did the last album, 3D, we were searching really hard to find [unreleased Left Eye verses] to go with songs we were working on,” says Chilli of the album that she and T-Boz completed after Left Eye’s death. “So probably not [this time], but I’m not going to say ‘no,’ because if something authentic can come together, we’re going to do it.”
