NeNe Leakes to Replace Joan Rivers on ‘Fashion Police’?

Published

on

In “ummmm, whaaaaat?” news of the day, rumor has it NeNe Leakes is the top contender to replace Joan Rivers on Fashion Police. We’ll give you a moment to let that sink in …

Many have questioned whether or not the late comedian’s seat could ever be filled and according to sources, E! feels like the answer is yes. To her credit, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star does have a successful clothing collection, with many pieces selling out in just one day on HSN. But, Joan didn’t just know fashion, she knew comedy. And unfortunately, that’s where Leakes might fall short.

There has been no official word from E! yet, so as of now this is just hear say. But you know how it goes, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. And NeNe is definitely fanning the flames of gossip. The Glee star took to twitter and posted a message that hints she may be starting a new gig.

Lupita Nyong’o Slams Magazine For Editing Out Her Kinks & Coils

When will these magazines learn…

Lupita Nyong’o just checked Grazia UK for brazenly altering her hair to remove any trace of kink, coil or wave. The magazine had invited the stunning actress to grace the cover of their November issue, but when the photo hit the ‘net there was one thing missing … Nyong’o’s natural ponytail.

In a lengthy IG post, Lupita let’s them have it, stating in part, “Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.”

Read the full post below:

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.

For their part, Grazia apologized, essentially blaming the photographer.
