Children, Goals, and Lawyer: Phaedra Parks Announces New Modeling Career; Signs With Wilhelmina Models @balleralert Phaedra Parks Announces New Modeling Career; Signs With Wilhelmina Models- blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since being dismissed from the cast of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” PhaedraParks has added a new gig to her longstanding career in the industry. According to Us Weekly, the lawyer-turned-reality star-turned mortician has now kicked off her career as a model. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The publication caught up with the newly named Wilhelmina model to discuss her new career move, her body, and her goals and inspirations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I think I’m the face of ‘yes you can,’” Parks told the publication. “I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams. Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me ‘Why?’ and I said ‘Why not?’ A supermodel started this company and she wanted to give the power back to the women and I think I stand for the same things. I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color, and age. It’s exciting and an adventure.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Parks then went on to discuss how she felt about representing an “under-served market,” where she explained that in this time, “women need to be empowered to stand in their truth, to be different, dare to be diverse and stand up in times of controversy.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes to the particular campaigns she wants to focus on, the mother-of-two explained that she would love to be the face of a skincare or cosmetic line. However, she doesn’t mind showing some skin for the camera. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I don’t mind baring it all, I have been wearing g-strings and baring it all really every season for seven years. I had two children on national TV. I love nudity! I’ve bought a lot of exotic entertainers on the show, so I love my body and I’ve got curves. I’m a mother of two, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As things turn around in her life, from her being fired to her divorce, Parks has finally started to be happy with who she is. And now she believes, she is getting better with time.

Children, Family, and Friends: "Touched By an Angel" Star, Della Reese, Dead at 86 @balleralert “Touched By an Angel” Star, Della Reese, Dead at 86 – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sunday evening, music legend and actress, DellaReese, who starred in the television series “Touched By an Angel,” died at the age of 86. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “On behalf of her husband, Franklin Lett, and all her friends and family, I share with you the news that our beloved Della Reese has passed away peacefully at her California home last evening surrounded by love,” Reese’s costar, Roma Downey said in a statement to PEOPLE. “She was an incredible wife, mother, grandmother, friend and pastor, as well as an award-winning actress and singer. Through her life and work she touched and inspired the lives of millions of people.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “She was a mother to me and I had the privilege of working with her side by sider for so many years on ‘Touched By an Angel.’ I know heaven has a brand new angel this day. Della Reese will be forever in our hearts. Rest In Peace, sweet angel. We love you.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, Reese began her singing career at the early age of six-years-old. By 13, she was singing in front of massive crowds with the likes of Mahalia Jackson. In 1957, Reese gained nationwide recognition from her hit songs, “And That Reminds Me and “Don’t You Know?” Years later, she transitioned from music to television. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the 90s, Reese secured a role in “Touched By An Angel,” where she drew on her Christian faith. Decades later, the beloved actress retired from acting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our prayers and condolences are with the family of Della Reese, who is survived by her husband and three children.

Through her life and work she touched and inspired the lives of millions of people.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “She was a mother to me and I had the privilege of working with her side by sider for so many years on ‘Touched By an Angel.’ I know heaven has a brand new angel this day. Della Reese will be forever in our hearts. Rest In Peace, sweet angel. We love you.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, Reese began her singing career at the early age of six-years-old. By 13, she was singing in front of massive crowds with the likes of Mahalia Jackson. In 1957, Reese gained nationwide recognition from her hit songs, “And That Reminds Me and “Don’t You Know?” Years later, she transitioned from music to television. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the 90s, Reese secured a role in “Touched By An Angel,” where she drew on her Christian faith. Decades later, the beloved actress retired from acting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Our prayers and condolences are with the family of Della Reese, who is survived by her husband and three children.

The baller, who has been deemed the “greatest basketball player on the planet,” agreed with the notion that league owners are blackballing the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I love football, but I’m not part of the NFL. I don’t represent the NFL,” James said, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN. “I don’t know their rules and regulations. But I do know Kap is getting a wrongdoing, I do know that. Just watching, he’s an NFL player. He’s an NFL player and you see all these other quarterbacks out there and players out there that get all these second and third chances that are nowhere near as talented as him. It just feels like he’s been blackballed out of the NFL. So, I definitely do not respect that.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Bleacher Report, since Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the Niners earlier this year, 42 other quarterbacks have signed contracts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “The only reason I could say he’s not on a team is because the way he took a knee. That’s the only reason,” James said of Kaepernick’s protest of police brutality during the national anthem. The movement began during the 2016 NFL preseason and has since expanded throughout different sports and continued through the 2017-18 season, despite Kaepernick’s unemployment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I watch football every Sunday, every Thursday, every Monday night. I see all these quarterbacks – first-string, second –team, third-team quarterbacks-that play sometimes when the starter gets hurt or are starters that play. Kap is better than a lot of those guys. Let’s just be honest.”

Following their initial encounter, the two reportedly took the young girl out to dinner and then back to Simmons’ apartment to show her some work they had been working on.

Goodman usually force-fed the “family values” narrative, which appears to have been a cover-up for his secret affair, to hold up his right-wing legislator persona. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, after being caught stepping out on his wife with another man, Goodman sat down with House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger for a meeting. Shortly after, the 33-year-old stepped down from his position for “inappropriate conduct.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We all bring our own struggles and our own trials into public life,” he said in a statement. “That has been true for me, and I sincerely regret that my actions and choices have kept me from serving my constituents and our state in a way that reflects the best ideals of public service. For those whom I have let down, I’m sorry. As I move onto the next chapter of my life. I sincerely ask for privacy for myself, my family, and my friends.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Goodman’s website, which has since been taken down, highlighted commitment, conservative principles, and family values. He also frequently touted “natural [heterosexual] marriage” and Christian views. The former lawmaker’s twitter has since been switched to private and his Facebook has been deleted.

Friends, Lawyer, and Meek Mill: Meek Mill's Lawyer Files Motion to Get Judge, Who Reportedly Asked For Shout out On A Song, Off His Case @balleralert Meek Mill’s Lawyer Files Motion to Get Judge, Who Reportedly Asked For Shout out On A Song, Off His Case – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just days after MeekMill was sentenced to 2-4 years for violating probation, the rapper’s attorney called the judge’s intentions into question. Joe Tacopina accused the judge of handing down a heavy sentence because of her personal vendetta against the rapper, despite previous easy breaks. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The judge reportedly had a 10-year history with the rapper, stemming from his 2008 charges. Over the years, according to Tacopina, the judge had asked Meek to compromise his music career for her personal gain. He said the judge asked the rapper to change management and sign with one of her hometown friends. He also said she asked for a personal shout-out in a Boyz II Men song remake, but Meek refused. Now, Tacopina believes she is using her power to hurt him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, the lawyer is filing a motion for the judge to take herself off the case. According to TMZ, Tacopina will be filing a complaint with the judicial conduct board to report the judge’s alleged acts. In addition, TMZ reports that the rapper will also be applying to Pennsylvania’s Board of Pardons, however, that process usually takes at least three years to complete. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Meanwhile, a petition, orchestrated by Governor Tom Wolf, to have the “unjust prison sentenced remedied” has now reached over 300,000 signatures. However, TMZ reports it may not be much help.

Arguing, Drugs, and Lawyer: Lawyer Says Body Cam Footage Show:s LAPD Officer Planting Cocaine on Black Suspect @balleralert BREAKING NEWS NE 5159 62 O2 BREAKING NEWS CBS2 EXCLUSIVE Lawyer Says Body Cam Footage Shows LAPD Officer Planting Cocaine on Black Suspect – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Thursday, body cam footage of an April hit-and-run incident in Los Angeles was released, catapulting the department into an internal investigation on the use of the cameras. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the footage obtained by CBS-LA, an LAPD officer is allegedly shown planting drugs inside a black suspect’s wallet. The media outlet retrieved 12 total videos, all worn by the officers that were on the scene when 52-year-old RonaldShields was arrested and charged with felony hit-and-run and cocaine possession. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At the time, officers reported that a small bag of cocaine was found in Shield’s shirt, however, upon the release of the bodycam footage on Thursday, new information has been unveiled to the public. Shields’ lawyer says the video shows an officer picking up the cocaine off the ground and putting it in Shields’ wallet, which was caught on his own bodycam. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports, the cameras begin recording 30 seconds before being turned on, but it appears the officer, who has been identified as Officer Gaxiola, had no idea about the device’s design. Which explains why he allegedly turns the camera on after planting the drugs in the suspect’s wallet. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, despite the video, another officer told the judge that he found the cocaine in Shields’ pocket, prompting Shields’ lawyer to argue that the drugs were planted, as allegedly seen in the video, he is reportedly asking for the evidence to be suppressed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, the LAPD released a statement saying, “The LAPD takes all allegations of misconduct seriously and as in all cases, will conduct a thorough investigation to determine whether the alleged actions are supported by reliable evidence.”

Under standard practices, according to Yahoo, Ball, along with the three other UCLA basketball players, could face between three and 10 years in prison, if convicted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Officials say the three players, including freshmen Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, were caught stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store near the team’s hotel in Hangzhou. The team had been staying at the Hyatt Regency in preparation for their game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai later this week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ After officials questioned players from both teams, Ball, Riley, and Hill were taken into custody. Hours later, the three were released on bail and ordered to remain in their hotel until the legal battle was resolved. As a result, they will not suit up on Friday against Georgia Tech. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China,” UCLA said in a statement. “The University is cooperating fully with local authorities on this matter, and we have no further comment at this time.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ball’s father spoke to reporters as well, revealing that his son will be fine when the legal issues are settled. But, as for details on the case, he was advised to remain mum. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Everybody making it a big deal. It isn’t that big of a deal,” he said. In a later released statement, he added, “It is a very unfortunate situation that the Ball family and UCLA has to deal with at this particular time. We will comment shortly.”

Jail, Meek Mill, and Memes: Meek Mill's Legal Team Says Judge Gave Him a Heavy Sentence Because He Refused To Give Her a Shout Out in A Boyz ll Men Remake @balleralert Meek Mill’s Legal Team Says Judge Gave Him a Heavy Sentence Because He Refused To Give Her a Shout Out in A Boyz II Men Remake – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier this week, MeekMill was sentenced to 2 to 4 years behind bars for violating probation, again. Despite the judge’s 10-year history with the rapper and several previous easy breaks, many believe the sentence was harsh and heavy-handed. In fact, the rapper’s legal team says the judge has a vendetta against him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to TMZ, Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, says the judge passed down the heavy sentence even after prosecutors recommended no jail time because of her own personal issues with the rapper. Tacopina says the two are from the same part of Philly and know some of the same people, the publication reports. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tacopina cited an incident from last year, when the judge asked the rapper to do a remake of Boyz II Men’s, “On Bended Knee,” and give her a shout-out. According to the attorney, Meek thought the judge was joking, but she said “I’m not kidding,” and when he refused, she said, “Okay, suit yourself.” Since then, Tacopina believes she has had it out for him, which explains the heavy sentence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, Meek’s legal team says they plan to appeal the sentence.
