Well, Well BET has really put their foot in their mouth. When I was tuned into the BET AWARDS that night i noticed that B.Scott, The Media Maven had changed his clothes. I said to myself, self i wonder why B.Scott change his clothes. I just figured he just made a change because thats how Fab he is. But when I saw the subdue look that he came back with, I knew then something was wrong. The day after the BET Awards B.Scott wrote a open letter to BET. Read Below http://lovebscott.com/news/open-letter-what-really-happened-to-me-at-the-bet-awards/

This is what I pulled from B.Scott’s on Blog. 
“I’m sure by now you’re aware of an unfortunate incident that occurred while I was serving as Style Stage Correspondent for the 2013 BET Awards Pre-Show. After sharing my open letter with the world I’ve received tons of support from family, friends and love muffins for which I’m truly grateful.

While I want nothing more than to put this incident behind me and move on with my life, I still wholeheartedly believe that I’m entitled to a true public apology. BET’s non-apology statement added more insult to injury. What happened to me was not a ‘miscommunication’ nor was it ‘unintentional’. It was wrong. I have been vehemently trying to come to a resolution with BET and Viacom behind the scenes. After a few weeks of back and forth dialogue with no foreseeable resolution, I have filed a lawsuit against BET and its parent company Viacom for discrimination on the basis of gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation..
Over the years my love muffins and strangers alike have questioned me about my gender identity. What IS B. Scott? As a society we’ve been conditioned to believe that a person has to be ‘exactly’ this or ‘exactly’ that. Biologically, I am male — as my sex was determined at birth by my reproductive organs.
However, my spirit truly lies somewhere in between. It is that same spirit that has allowed me to become so comfortable in my skin, choose how I express myself, and contributes to how I live my day-to-day life.

Transgender is the state of one’s gender identity (self-identification as woman, man, neither or both) not matching one’s assigned sex (identification by others as male, female or intersex based on physical/genetic sex).

It is by that definition that I accept and welcome the ‘transgender’ label with open arms.
It is also by that definition that BET and Viacom willingly and wrongfully discriminated against my gender identity during the 2013 BET Awards Pre-Show.
Let’s be clear — I’m suing BET and Viacom for a true public apology and to be fairly remunerated for the time lost, humiliation and emotional distress this entire situation has put me through.”

These are the Court Documens that were filed! http://f.cl.ly/items/3w2C1s0v3K1Q0N1D2M1P/2013-8-7%20SCOTT%20-%20complaint%20%28endorsed%29.pdf

Nene Leakes, sued for $2.5 million by Wedding Planner

      I hope you are ready for this foolishness. The word around the campfire per +TMZ is that Nene Leakes didn’t finish paying her wedding planner for that lovely wedding that she had in June. The woman going after Leakes is Tiffany Cook – who claims NeNe hired Dream Design Weddings to coordinate the party for her marriage to Gregg Leakes on June 22, 2013 … a wedding that will featured on a Bravo TV special in September. In her suit, filed in Georgia, Cook claims Leakes promised to pay her 15% of the entire wedding budget PLUS fees design and execution of the wedding PLUS travel expenses to the event. In total, Cook claims NeNe’s budget for the wedding was $1.8 MILLION!!!!!!!!! And Cook claims she was due $270k (the 15%) PLUS another $889,900 (design fees) PLUS $1,750 (4 coach tickets from Florida to Georgia). Cook claims NeNe did fork over the initial down payment ($18,750) … but she hasn’t seen a penny since — and is suing for the remaining $1,142,900 balance … PLUS damages. In total, Cook — who also put together Kordell Stewart‘s wedding to Porsha – wants more than $2.5 MILLION for her troubles. How’s THAT for a wedding gift??? A rep for NeNe tells TMZ … Cook was NOT the wedding planner, it was a man named Tony Conway, who made Nene’s wedding spectacular. The rep adds, “This lawsuit has no merit and it appears to be a baseless attempt to grab 15 min of fame.”

So Nene wrote on her Faacebook Page to her loyal fans, stating who was her wedding planner.

So there you have it the Queen has spoken!
