Barely reaching two months in the Oval and Donald Trump is causing outrage across the country yet again.

Earlier this week, the President of the United States signed off on the reversal of the federal guidance Barack Obama’s administration had in place regarding transgender students. The initial guidance allowed trans students to use bathrooms fit for their gender identity, not birth gender.

Several celebrities spoke out on social media about the recent reversal, including Caitlyn Jenner, who suggested in a Twitter video that “This is a disaster. And you can still fix it. You made a promise to protect the LGBTQ community. Call me.”

Trump’s actions were also a hot topic during the Essence Women In Hollywood Gala on Thursday night where several stars expressed their opinions about the latest controversy.

Orange is the New Black’s Danielle Brooks explained, “I call him 45 because I can’t call him the P word. I”m keeping the faith and keeping the hope. In the 60’s Black people really fought hard for our rights and they did not give up on this country. Now, this generation, we can’t give up either.”

Grey’s Anatomy star, Kelly McCreary suggested, “This country was not built on a foundation of inclusivity. The process we’ve made over the past couple of centuries has been about including everybody in that fold. We have to do that intentionally, we have to do that with laws.”

And Miss Lawrence, star of Fox’s hit show, Star, added, “That is disgusting. I think we can experience bullying on a level we’ve never even seen. How soon do we forget to experience separatism.”

Following the decision, the White House explained in a statement that “President Trump has clearly stated, he believes policy regarding transgender bathrooms should be decided at the state level. The joint decision made today by the Department of Justice and the Department of Education … paves the way for an open and inclusive process to take place at the local level with input from parents, students, teachers and administrators.”


Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy



Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
