Lolo Jones Posts Emotional Facebook Message After Being Eliminated From DWTS



ICYMI, Olympian Lolo Jones was the first contestant to be eliminated from Season 19 of Dancing With the Stars. On Monday night, Jones delivered a seemingly boring and stiff cha cha which clearly didn’t sit well with viewers at home who vote on who stays or goes home.

Following Tuesday night’s results show, Lolo posted a deep, heartfelt message on Facebook about her short journey on the ABC show.

“My prayer tonight is for God to soften me and my heart. When you go so many times rejected in public you put walls up. When I was dancing last night and messed up I had flashbacks of the three Olympics and that people constantly tease me about. I thought oh no here it comes again. People are going to ridicule me. I’m so tired of feeling embarrassed.

I joined the other competitors upstairs and I couldn’t force a smile on my face. I felt like vomiting and in between the other dances I went in a back room and fought back tears. I felt so broken. So unlovable. Embarssed.

My brief time on ‪#‎DWTS‬ was a lasting lesson. I really wanted to stay on the show and have the layers of hurt wash away by showing the public how hard I work. I wanted to come away a victor for once. I wanted to do so good performing in public that the haters would stop teasing me.

But that is my way of thinking. Not Gods. Instead I need to trust God that he would heal my heart. That I would not work so hard for the world to validate and redeem me but know that God already conquered that for me on the cross.

My time was brief but the lesson is lasting. Thank you everyone who wrote me kind messages. You were helping me not fall into darkness.

Love ya guys (see I’m getting softer )

My prayer for tonight
Psalm 147:3
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”

Dancing With the Stars airs Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. on ABC.


Could There Be A “Black Panther” and “Luke Cage” Crossover In The Works?



With all the hype over Black Panther (and it breaking box office records) fans are craving more of the Marvel superhero and crafting ways to intertwine him across the MCU. One theory is to have T’Challa and Luke Cage on screen together for an epic crossover episode during Cage’s sophomore season on Netflix.

The idea isn’t farfetched to Luke Cage star Simone Missick.

“I would love that,” Missick who plays Misty Knight told HipHollywood. “I mean doesn’t Black Panther come to New York, Misty Knight could travel to Wakanda. Maybe she takes a vacation and winds up in Wakanda.”

But while Missick was only speaking hypothetically, she said LC showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and BP director Ryan Coogler are good pals so it’s not out of the question. “They already know each other. Cheo is working on Creed 2 writing the script and that was Ryan’s movie, so that would be awesome.”

Meanwhile when asked about a Black Panther and Luke Cage meeting on screen, Coker was enthusiastic. “I would love that, I really would!,” he told “I mean, because it would be, like, OK. T’Challa could definitely get on Pop’s free haircut list.”

In an interview with BET, Coogler was asked about three MCU characters coming together – Blade, T’Challa, and Luke Cage.

“I don’t control that stuff. I know that stuff’s all complicated. I wish Kevin [Feige] was here to see if you could talk to him, because he knows more about it. But I think it would be awesome. I loved those characters. [Blade] paved the way for what we’re doing now…And what Cheo [Hodari Coker] is doing with Netflix is just incredible, putting African-American culture on the screen like that and seeing people react to it that aren’t from that culture…the same way they react to a black basketball player or a black musician. It works for film, too. It’s universal.”
