Recently Drake had his own night 'Drake Night' in Toronto, during the Toronto Raptors game. The Atlanta Hawks followed suit by declaring last night 'Gucci Mane Night'. Congratulations to Gucci Mane and his fiancée Keyshia Ka'oir. Under no circumstances are we encouraging anyone to place their life on hold being a 'ride or die' for someone who had the option to make better choices, but chose to do wrong, in his case, going to jail a few times. Those types of people deserved every bit of the consequences and if their partner chooses to walk away after giving them the chance to get it together, that's great as well, however there are time that people really want to do better and just need that one person who believes in them no matter what. Phaedra Parks of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, left her husband Apollo Nida after he went to jail for the second time.
The clips of the proposal below, include images of Ka'oir visiting her now fiance in jail when he was broken. Many said: 'what are you doing, you're Beautiful, a business woman, you can do so much better, he's fat, he's on drugs, he's disgusting, those disturbing tattoos on his face (before image below), he's abusive, a cheater, no amount of money would make me stay with a man like him and so much more. With all that, she stayed with him.
She stayed because she saw something in him that the world didn't see. He came out in shape and staying out of trouble. She's told, 'girl let him breathe now that he's out, but she's right there with him at every show...why because those 'Yes Men' around him are the reasons he ended up where he was in the first place. With his circle clean and him wanting to do right, they're great. This can only be accomplished if the person wants to do the right thing as well. Congratulations again you two. Wishing you both the best. Watch the proposal clips below.
In a nine part series on this website Instagram new page @msvinadincblog Kanye West needing rest and sending prayers was the center of our nine part series before the announcement that he was hospitalized and that a 'medical welfare' call was made to the Los Angeles police according to a source. No criminal investigation, just a simple health evaluation.
West was admitted at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
West was very close to his mother Dr. Donda West who died due to complications after her breast reduction surgery. She died on November 10, 2007. With this being the month of her death years ago, it is understandable why West is in a bad place. He never fully grieved the death of his mother. He kept working and stayed busy to avoid dealing with the pain and years later, it caught up with him.
Beautiful Family: Adding to that stress, West did not take the appropriate time needed after his wife Kim Kardashian was robbed at gunpoint in Paris. He spend a few days with his family and went back on tour. Receiving that call about what occurred to her, probably brought back the devastation of losing his mother. With all that going on, West alleged that his musical family, Beyonce and Jay Z did not call him or his wife to make sure that she was okay after the robbery and also discussed that after seven years of taking the heat for jumping on stage when Taylor Swift was receiving 'Video of the year' at the MTV awards, Beyonce allegedly instructed the network to present her with the same award this year in exchange of her performance. Watch the clips below.
West who was on the hook to pay back millions, took out an insurance policy before tour that if he could not perform due to any health reasons, the insurance company would covered him. A recent insurance policy also came to light after his wife robbery in Paris. Although most are sad and wishing West the best, this new information have many thinking if this was all a setup. We do not think so and wishing West a full recovery.
Selena Gomez ended her time out of the spotlight and rehab to receive her award at the American Music Awards. Her speech was perfect timing because like West, she kept going and did not take care of herself. She eventually ended up in rehab. Her being there also mirror what West said about the industry and MTV allegedly giving Beyonce the Video Of The Year award in exchange for an performance. Many felt that although Gomez speech was heartfelt and that she have amazing fans that voted for her, the award was all a setup and already planned for her to win because after being out of the spotlight for so long and being absent, she wasn't expected to win. Watch Gomez heartfelt speech below.
The rest odf West shows on the St Pablo Tour has been cancled which is great. He can now focus on getting better.
His wife Kim Kardashian who had plan to make her first official red carpet public appearance, had to change her plans to be by her husband side. She was seen boarding a private jet. Read well wishes Tweets from West celebrity friends and those frustrated fans, in the slideshow below. Also few clips of West nervous breakdown on stage below. Praying for Kanye West and his family.
Stunning model Gigi Hadid co-hosted the American Music Awards on Sunday for the second year and did an amazing job. She had a few rough bumps, but was able to recovered.
Her co-host was master impersonator and SNL alum Jay Pharoah. With comedy not being Gigi expertise, Pharaoh added the perfect balance.
One of the biggest backlash came when Gigi impersonated Melania Trump. Watch below.
Many felt that she was being disrespectful. The Tweets were too outlandish to post. Pharoah, did defend Hadid. Read below.
Classic: Lady Gaga looked iconic and chic. Most are used to her being over the top, but she kept her look very clean, classic and old Hollywood.
Gorgeous In Red: Selena Gomez ended her time out of the spotlight and rehab to receive her award. Kanye West made an allegation while on stage at his now canceled tour, a few days ago that Beyonce allegedly told MTV that she had to win Video Of The Year Award in exchange of her performance. Many felt that although Gomez speech was heartfelt and that she have amazing fans that voted for her, the award was all a setup and already planned for her to win because after being out of the spotlight for so long and being absent, she wasn't expected to win. Watch Gomez heartfelt speech below.
Cookie: Empire star, Taraji P Henson, showed her softer side with some very long hair extensions at the AMAs.
Chrissy Teigen gave viewers more than an eyeful when her dress lifted in the wrong direction (images not included). She apologized. Her outfit was very risque, but she looked great with her husband John Legend, who was a performer at the award ceremony.
Hailee Steinfeld looked amazing as well at the AMAs. Her look was perfect for the event. Appropriate, yet sexy and elegant at the same time. Loving the color against her complexion.
Glowing: One of the presenters of the night, Ciara, looked amazing. She made sure that her baby-bump was the star of the red carpet. Ciara and her husband Russell Wilson are expecting their first child together. This is Ciara second child. She shares son Future from her previous relationship with rapper Future.
Singer Tinashe added a little sexy to her look. She looked different with her hair style this way, but she looked great.
The always youthful looking Ariana Grande, kept her look very simple, yet sexy. Watch her performance with Nicki Minaj below.
Zoe Saldana had a very patriotic look on for the night. She was one of the presenters.
Hannah Davis see-through look, is a trend at the moment. A few of the ladies in attendance had the same look on with different colors and material, but her's was the best. She looked beautiful.
Model Joan Smalls didn't have her best night as it relates to fashion in this look. Although her dress had a lot going on, it fit her like a glove and she is stunning. She was definitely able to pull it off
Singer Keyshia Cole also made an appearance. Most wasn't sure if she was heading to bed or the award, seeing that her look was lingerie inspired.
Keke Palmer was also a presenter. She presented Drake with one of his awards. Ironic because her look, excluding the cutout stomach area is very similar to a dress that Drake other half Rihanna wore a little while ago.
Stunning and former 106 & Park host, Rocsi Diaz was also at the award ceremony doing what she does best.
Teyana Taylor almost had a terrible fall while walking out on stage as a presenter, but looked beautiful before it all happened.
Milla Jovovich looked absolutely stunning. We are loving everything about her look.
Heidi Klum also missed the mark. Her look was not the best.
Drake won three awards and all of the major Hiphop categories. He was nominated for a record 13 awards for his amazing album 'Views."
Olivia Munn, although beautiful, missed the mark with this look.
Rihanna won three awards as well.

Date Night: How Iconic are John Legend and his gorgeous wife, outfits. We are loving the 'All Black Everything' and how Stunning Chrissy Teigen looks. From her amazing makeup to adding the pop of color missing in her look, with red lips. Her husband and John Legend compliments her perfectly.

I’ve done it all, this is it.”
Ellen Degeneres did the honors on her show.
Johnson is 6’5″ and 245 lbs. He said that it took him a while to become comfortable in his own skin, “took a lot of time.”
He continued, "As a teen growing up in Hawaii, I was doing a lot of things that I shouldn’t have.

The power of perseverance and having a winner attitude.

Graham did not shy away from showcasing her curves. She had them on full display in this amazing off white bodysuit with beaded embellishment and sheer legs. During her acceptance speech (clip below), Graham said, "2016 was an interesting ride, but never before have I seen such size diversity in fashion, in film, on buses, on covers of magazines, in films, in TV. It's been absolutely incredible." "I didn't do it by myself. It takes a village. Don't let your body hold you back. Don't let your body insecurities hold you back from doing anything that you want to do."
Watch the speech below.
Beautiful Ladies: Graham also made time to catchup with another in demand model who have also embraced her size, Iskra Lawrence.
Before the big night, Graham unveiled a Barbie doll in her likeness, during the Glamour summit earlier in the day. She made sure that her message was clear, by making sure that the Barbie had her proportions. She said, "We need to work together to redefine the global image of beauty and continue to push for a more inclusive world. I'm thrilled Barbie had not only evolved their product, but also has continued to honor women who are pushing boundaries."
She continued: "It was important that the Barbie resembled me as much as possible. The thighs touching was one way to show young girls that it's okay for your thighs to touch, despite society saying that a 'thigh gap' is more beautiful."

Phaedra Parks estranged husband Apollo Nida is engaged. Most who watch the Real Housewives of Atlanta, got to witnessed the demise of their marriage. Parks divorce was finalized recently. It looks like documents were sealed from the public because there are no public records out there confirming her divorce. Nida fiancée name is Sherien Almufti. She is a real estate agent from the Philadelphia area and is now residing in New Jersey to be closer to Nida prison where she visits twice a week.
Nadi and his beautiful fiancée Almufti, met at a club in Philadelphia two years ago. She's a mother and was also married. She will be featured on the show. A short clip below shows her walking in with Kandi Burruss husband Todd Tucker, during taping of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Tucker and Nadi are great friends.
Nida and Parks share two children.
Writer's Note: People were surprise when this news broke, but this is a normal occurrence. People get engaged and married while behind bars all the time. Rapper Remy Ma and Papoose (left image), got married in jail and her husband stood by her side. I'm sure he heard the "you have all these free women to choose from, why her..." He chose her and they're doing well. Yandy Smith (middle image) from 'Love & Hip Hop New York, knew her husband Mendeecees Harris legal issues before he became her husband. She married him anyways, had children with him and is standing by his side. Rapper Gucci Mane love Keyshia Kaoir (right image), hung in there and visited him on the regular. He's out and they're doing well. Yes of course moving on and being with someone on the right path is ideal, but this is a regular occurrence. Phaedra Parks was with him through the first mess realized that she's not willing to risk going to jail for it the second time around, now that they have children involved and I completely understand.
