New Signs Toni Braxton And Birdman Are Probably Totally Hitched



Earlier this month, rumors hit the web that Toni Braxton and Birdman secretly tied the knot and now, the rumors seem to be tiptoeing from rumored to factual.

The news was first seemingly confirmed by Toni’s sister, Tamar, who accidentally referred to the Grammy Award winning singer as Mrs. Braxton-Williams.

Although neither party has actually confirmed the news, here are two new signs that point to rumors being totally true.

On Thursday morning, Tamar shared a clip of her big sis rapping. In the caption, she referred to Birdman as her “bro” but then also, in the visual, you see a stunning rock perfectly situated on Toni’s left ring finger.


The new season of the family’s reality show, Braxton Family Values, airs on WE on Thursday nights.


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.
