They might look good standing next to each other, but this duo is all about the business, not knocking boots!

The second Cynthia Bailey posted this pic with boxer Yahu Blackwell, folks started claiming the two were a hot and heavy pair.

But the truth of the matter is, Cyn and Yahu are more interested in money than dating. A simple look at Bailey’s caption gives the whole story.

Great business meeting with @yahu_rockblackwell today. Congrats on your recent win, and upcoming boxing app, and philanthropic endeavors in Cameroon. Looking forward to working together!

Blackwell has a boxing app and is looking to have models from the Cynthia Bailey Agency involved. Yep, that’s it.

“Rock” also posted a video of the still married RHOA star on his page, where they both expressed excitement about working together in the comment section.

We’re glad this rumor isn’t true … at least not yet. Until Cynthia handles her divorce from Peter, she should stay single as a dollar bill!

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
