Who Is Angela Simmons Mom? Valerie Vaughn

Angela Simmons' mom, Valerie Vaughn, has made multiple appearances on Growing Up Hip Hop.  Valerie was married to Angela's father, Joseph Simmons aka Rev Run from 1983 to 1992.  Valerie and Rev Run got divorced after he was accused of rape.  On February 23, 1992, a judge dismissed the charges.

Rev Run's accuser was a 22-year-old from Cleveland, Ohio.  The case was dismissed because of the accuser's lack of evidence.  Although Joseph didn't rape his accuser, he admitted to sleeping with her.  As a result, Valerie filed for divorce.  Valerie and Rev Run have three children together: Vanessa, Angela and Jojo.

In the fourth episode of Growing Up Hip Hop's second season, we see Angela and her mom shopping for baby clothes.  Valerie is very excited about her daughter's pregnancy and anxious to find out the sex of the baby.  When Angela makes her wait, Valerie threatens to purchase boys' and girls' baby clothing.

Angela finally reveals that she's expec…

Gas Shortage Memes - Top 10

Gas shortage memes are shared in this article.  On Thursday morning, numerous stations started running out of gas and long lines began to form.  Nearly one-third of America's oil refineries are located on the Gulf Coast and the gasoline industry is feeling the effects of Hurricane Harvey.

Texas drivers are rushing to buy gas and prices are rising.  Officials are saying they've received numerous complaints about price gouging in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.  Some say that there is no gas shortage.  The media is allegedly spreading the fake news so gas stations can mark up prices.

The following meme shows DJ Khaled using one of his famous catchphrases: " played yourself."

I don't think Texas will ever forgive Joel Osteen:

Electric car sales will increase after the flood.

Sidney Starr - Transgender? Black Ink Crew Chicago

Sidney Starr makes an appearance on episode 7 of Black Ink Crew Chicago's third season, "My Cousin Janelle." Sidney is the transgender model who was allegedly in a relationship with Chingy.  The rapper claims that the rumors ruined his record deal.  I don't think that's true.  Chingy stopped delivering quality music.

Don enters 9Mag very excited after getting his piercing certificate.  Ashley recently quit her job so their family needs all the financial assistance they can get.  Sidney enters 9Mag and turns up.  She is full of energy, explaining why she has a massive social media following.  Don explains that Sidney will be his first client.

Sidney explains that her assets are a product of homegrown, cornbread and surgery.  The Black Ink crew loves Sidney and asks her what she's getting pierced.  She jokes that she's getting her private part pierced but then reveals that she's getting her belly button pierced.

Sidney is nervous but Don calms her down. …

Jamal Bryant, Tweet In Hospital - Blood Clots

Pastor Jamal Bryant announced that his girlfriend, Tweet, has been admitted to the hospital because of blood clots in her organs.  The singer, whose real name is Charlene Keys, is battling a pulmonary embolism.  A pulmonary embolism is a blockage in a person's pulmonary arteries, which is located in their lungs.

This reminds me of the blood clots that ended Chris Bosh's career.  It's time for us to get more serious about our health and awareness is the key to success.  Bryant and Tweet's daughter, Scenic Johnson, both used social media to inform Tweet's fans about her condition and ask them to keep her in their prayers.

Jamal Bryant has been through ups and downs throughout his career so he fully understands how to overcome life's obstacles.  I''m sure he'll be by Tweet's side and that's exactly what she needs.

The tweet below explains that many people were unaware that Bryant and Tweet were dating.  Tweet has kept a low-profile over the las…

Sandra Bullock Net Worth 2017

Sandra Bullock is currently worth $210 million.  She donated $1 million of her fortune to the Hurricane Harvey relief fund.  The actress currently lives in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Hurricane Harvey is not as strong as it was last week but it is now delivering massive rain in Louisiana.  Bullock explained that we all have to do our part and she is exactly right.

Joel Osteen was dragged on social media for initially refusing to open the doors of his Lakewood Church for evacuees.  Bullock's donation will go to the Red Cross Harvey relief fund.  This isn't the first time the actress has donated $1 million.  Her first donation was for the Liberty Disaster Relief Fund.

Real Estate In February 2017, Bullock listed her home in Los Angeles, California for rent.  The 3,153 square foot residence has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.  Bullock listed it for $15,000 per month.

In 2009, Bullock purchased a historic home in New Orleans, Louisiana.  She bought the property for $2.25 million.  John Go…

Michael Blackson Net Worth 2017 - Houston Challenge

Michael Blackson's net worth is $2.5 million.  In the video below, the comedian challenges Z-list celebrities to donate to Hurricane Harvey victims.  Kevin Hart recently asked his A-list celebrity friends to donate $25,000 and Blackson clearly felt left out.  After Kevin challenged celebrities like Jay-Z and Beyonce, the comedian announced that he donated $50,000.

In the video below, Blackson first gives Kevin Hart and The Rock a shout out.  He then asks DC Young Fly to donate $50, Joe Budden to donate $45 and Yung Joc to donate $35.  Michael doesn't stop there.  He asks real housewives and basketball wives to donate $32 and Love and Hip Hop cast members to donate $16.

Blackson asks Wild N Out cast members to donate $10 except for Nick Cannon.  He asks Bow Wow for $5 and he tells Bobby V that we don't want his money.  Kevin Hart's net worth is $130 million so we fully understand where Blackson is coming from.

Floyd Mayweather Donates To Houston? $200 Million?

The rumor that Floyd Mayweather Jr. donated $200 million to Houston is false.  The story was posted by a fake news site.  Hurricane Harvey has created catastrophic flooding in Houston and I'm sure Mayweather will donate some money.  Mayweather was guaranteed $100 million for his fight with Conor McGregor before sponsorship and Pay Per View money is divided.

Many believe that Floyd will make more than $300 million total for his fight against Conor McGregor.  That's more than some of the world's most popular athletes make throughout their entire careers.  Some of Floyd's earnings will be going to the IRS.  A few months ago, multiple media outlets reported that the boxer owes the IRS $22 million.

When you're bringing home $300 million checks, why wouldn't you pay the IRS? Mayweather has participated in four of the highest grossing boxing matches of all time.  His fight with McGregor generated $500 million while his 2015 fight against Manny Pacquiao generated $410 …

Joel Osteen Memes - Top 10, Hurricane Harvey

Joel Osteen memes are shared in this article.  Hurricane Harvey continues to flood Houston and Osteen was called out on social media for refusing to open his Lakewood Church.  The megachurch is now open to evacuees.  When you're in a position of power, the public doesn't give you much time to respond to a disaster.

Joel's church is massive.  Lakewood is a 16,000-seat arena where the Houston Rockets used to play.  Some figured the church was flooded when they realized it wasn't opened to evacuees.  Others attacked Osteen for refusing to lend a helping hand.

If you've heard Osteen speak then you know he always has the right words.  Those words came in the form of a tweet, on Tuesday, when the pastor announced that Lakewood's doors were open to anyone who needed shelter.

Social media runs the world.  Messages are spread fast so Joel may have taken too long to respond to Hurricane Harvey.  Why did people need to remind him that his church could be used for evacuees…

Tiny, Master P - Dating?

Master P is not dating Tiny.  In the video at the end of this article the New Orleans rapper explains that he recently met Tameka "Tiny" Cottle for the first time.  The two artists own Global Mixed Gender Basketball league teams.  Percy "Master P" Miller owns the New Orleans Gators and Tiny owns the Atlanta Heirs.

Master P recently announced that Ron Artest aka Metta World Peace has signed a contract to play for the Gators.  The contract shows that the Global Mixed Gender Basketball league is serious.  Like Ice Cube's BIG3 league, GMGB is attracting former NBA players.  Many NBA players are forced to retire in their 30s but now they have options.

It would be smart for the GMGB and the BIG3 to merge.  Right now, the NBA is too popular and the two leagues will need to work together to compete.  The video at the end of this article reminds us that Master P is a marketing genius.  If him, Tiny and Ice Cube worked together, they could build a league that could event…

Neal Carter - Lil Wayne's Son

Neal Carter, Lil Wayne's son, is seen in the picture below.  He's with his big sister, Reginae Carter.  It's great to see them spending time together.  Reginae has been busy with college and Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta but family comes first.  Reginae was Wayne's first child while Neal was the rapper's fourth.

Neal Carter was born on November 30, 2009.  His mother is Wayne's former love interest, Nivea B. Hamilton.  Wayne and Nivea were together from 2002-2003.  They broke up but then got back together in 2009.  In 2010, they got engaged but they broke up before getting married.  Nivea was married to singer, The Dream from 2004-2008.

The future is bright for Neal.  His father is one of the most popular rappers in the world and his mother is a talented singer.  Wayne is always in the studio but sets time aside to spend with Neal and his other children.  Wayne is one of the few rappers who doesn't have baby mama drama despite having multiple baby mamas.

Bridget Kelly - Love And Hip Hop Hollywood

Bridget Kelly made an appearance on episode 7 of Love and Hip Hop Hollywood's fourth season "Shady Ladies." Bridget is a singer who was signed to Roc Nation.  She has filled in for Alicia Keys on numerous occasions, performing "Empire State of Mind" alongside Jay-Z.  Now she's working with Ray J.

Love and Hip Hop may seem like a step backwards for Bridget but tell that to Cardi B, Lyrica Anderson and Floyd A1 Bentley.  Cardi's "Bodak Yellow" is one of 2017's most popular songs.  Floyd and Lyrica have collaborated with some of the most famous artists in the world.  Appearing on Love and Hip Hop no longer means your music career is over.

The tweet below calls Kelly out for going from Ray J to Jay-Z.  I think Bridget made the right decision and Lyrica and Floyd A1 Bentley provide proof.

Why on earth would Bridget Kelly go from Jay Z to Ray J?!!!! #LHHH — Carmen H. (@carmenhenry_co) August 29, 2017

CJ So Cool - Baby Mama (VIDEO)

Scroll to the video at the end of this article to hear CJ So Cool's baby mama put him on blast.  She explains that CJ asked her to allow their daughter to live with him and she agreed.  She says that she has raised her daughter with no problems for 5 years but CJ couldn't handle 3 months.  Their daughter ended up in Child Protective Services due to CJ's bad decision making.

CJ So Cool is a popular YouTuber with nearly 3 million subscribers.  His videos include hilarious pranks, funny reactions, giveaways and challenges.  Despite his success on YouTube, CJ made a horrible mistake and his baby mama calls him out for it.  The situation is similar to what happened to Pimp C.

CJ had his daughter in the car when he got into a feud with another driver.  Instead of being mature and letting it go, CJ decided to show the other driver his gun.  CJ got locked up and his daughter ended up in Child Protective Services.

CJ's baby mama explains that she is not bitter and she works har…

AD Diggs Net Worth - Moniece's Girlfriend

AD Diggs net worth is $100,000.  In episode 6 of Love and Hip Hop Hollywood's fourth season, "Shady Ladies" AD tries to bring Moniece Slaughter and Tiffany Campbell together.  AD and Moniece are in a relationship and Tiffany is one of AD's best friends.  Tiffany doesn't think Moniece is really a lesbian.

Annette AD Diggs is a hustler.  She was born on June 16, 1983 in Brooklyn, New York.  She is the founder and CEO of DiggTheKicks, an apparel line that's on the rise.  DiggTheKicks was created for people who love sneakers.  The store is located at 8200 Haven Avenue, Suite 2106, Rancho Cucamonga, California.

Tiffany calls Moniece out for using AD.  The tweet below explains that AD doesn't present any opportunities that Moniece could benefit from.

What opportunity does AD present for Moniece to be an opportunist? I don't understand #LHHH — Pumps & a Bump (@4ever_Evolving) August 29, 2017

Beyonce Donates To Houston

There's no doubt that Beyonce has donated to her hometown, Houston, Texas.  We most likely won't receive any details regarding her donation because she's not doing it for publicity.  In the first Instagram video below, comedian, Kevin Hart challenges Beyonce to donate.  She definitely didn't need to be challenged but I understand where Kevin was coming from.

In the second Instagram video below, Hart explains that the people he challenged in the first video are being active and helping the cause.  Hurricane Harvey caused more than 10 feet of flooding in many areas.  The water is so high that boats are sailing on top of cars.  Kevin set up a donation website to help raise money for victims of the hurricane.

Here's Hart's first video:

Nicki Whats Good Memes - Top 10

Remy Ma called out Nicki Minaj at the 2017 VMAs with a simple question: "Nicki whats good?" Nicki asked Miley Cyrus, "Miley whats good?" at the 2015 VMAs.  #NickiWhatsGood is now trending on Twitter and it brought back #MileyWhatsGood.  Nicki most likely won't respond but Remy used her name to break the Internet.

Huffington Post explains that Nicki looked stunning in her pink latex.  Minaj has been focusing on features but her fans are ready for her new album.  The Queens rapper performed "Swish Swish" alongside Katy Perry.

The meme above implies that Nicki will pull a Drake and get her ghost writers to handler her response.

Some think the Remy Ma Nicki Minaj beef is old while others are still loving it.

Many fans think Nicki has changed.  The meme below explains that Remy is in the process of bringing Nicki back to reality.

shETHER would have ended the careers of most rappers but when you're built like Nicki it takes more to bring you down.


Houston - Before And After Flooding

Scroll to the video at the end of this article to donate.

This post shows pictures of Houston before and after flooding.  Hurricane Harvey brought catastrophic floods and five people have died.  The Cajun Navy, an informal rescue service, is currently navigating through flood areas to help Houston's residents.  Houston officials gave the group a green light to come in and assist with rescue efforts.

More than 5 million Houston residents are being impacted.  Tonight, the rain will stop for a few hours but then the thunderstorms will start again.  The economic impact will be in the billions.  This can be a historic flooding situation for the United States.

I'm sure Beyonce is donating money to her hometown.  Media outlets recently reported that the singer was interested in buying the Houston Rockets.

Kevin Hart just started the Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge:
