April Ryan has landed a new gig and it all may be thanks to Sean Spicer. The American Urban Radio Networks journalist and White House correspondent has now been hired as a political contributor for CNN.

The news comes hot on the heels of Ryan being scolded by Spicer to stop shaking her head in response to one of his answers at a press briefing last week. The incident drew widespread attention online and helped birth the hashtag Black Women at Work.

CNN wouldn’t say when it began negotiating with Ryan but we don’t think it’s a coincidence.

Ryan has been garnering a lot of attention since Trump has been in office. In a February news conference that went viral, Donald foolishly asked Ryan to help arrange a meeting between him and the Congressional Black Caucus – a task beyond the responsibilities of reporters.

According to a CNN spokeswoman, Ryan will be available for political commentary on all of its shows.

The 49-year-old Morgan State alumni also announced the news on her Twitter page.

Ryan has covered the White House for more than 20 years, since President Clinton’s second term, and is also the author of several books, including the best-seller, The Presidency In Black and White: My Up Close View of Three Presidents and Race in America.

Finally! Taraji P. Henson Confirms Relationship With NFL Baller Kelvin Hayden



Taraji is finally letting the world know what it already knew – she’s in a relationship with NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden. Henson dished the (cold) tea while on Essence’s Yes, Girl! podcast saying that the reason she kept it a secret was because she’s a private person.

“I’m not the type to blast my personal business. But, you know, I think that’s important for people to know. I’m happy. I’m very very happy. I just am,” the “Empire” actress shared.

Rumors first circulated in December 2015 about Henson and 34-year-old Hayden, who played for the Chicago Bears and the Indianapolis Colts, after photos surfaced of the pair holding hands in Miami. Though Hayden has appeared on her Instagram feed, the Golden Globe winner never confirmed the intimate details until now.

“You know, we’ve been together for two years. No one would really know that because I don’t really blast my info like that. But I’m very happy,” she said.

Taraji girl we could tell. The Hidden Figures actress even broke out singing, “Finally! It has happened to me,”—quoting the CeCe Peniston‘s song “Finally.”

Henson also revealed the couple will be celebrating the holidays together with the new puppy Hayden gifted her with as an early Christmas present.

“Big #KBall with Lil squirt #KBall watching daddy brush his teeth! 😩😂😂😂,” she wrote, teasing a photo of her boo and new pup.

And speaking of Christmas, in case you missed it Taraji hosted her “White Hot Holidays” special on Fox Wednesday night. Peep the clips of Henson having some fun with her celebrity guests including Method Man, DJ Khaled, Neicy Nash, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ying Yang Twins.
