Former Miss USA, Kenya Moore, visited the set of the Wendy Show Thursday morning to dish on all things ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ style. In true Wendy Williams‘ shady fashion, the talk show maven recently joked about Kenya’s skin but then invites her to the show for a one on one interview. Upon Kenya’s arrival Wendy then says, “You look good.” Then proceeds to ask, “Are you mad at me?” Hilarious!
Kenya says the drama surrounding her attempt to steal Phaedra Park‘s husband Apollo is overrated. She also talks a bit about her beef with the other women on the show and her Miss USA title and accomplishments.
On her accomplishments and criticism she’s since face she also says, “Some people work for a living and some people twerk for a living.” Yeah, whatever that means.

And we even get to hear a new song, “Nobody’s Perfect”. A great interview. Check it out below.
Rihanna sit down with Oprah during ‘Next Chapter’ was refreshing. She was honest, she allowed herself to be vulnerable and she made a real connection. Here are some of the highlights of that interview.
Rihanna reveals she felt stifled at the beginning of her career because she didn’t know who she was 16 and 17. She says the marketing team at her label created a brand and she had to break out of that.
On what her late Gran Gran Dolly taught her, “To find a man who will love you more than you love him, because a woman will always give more….if they love you more they’ll meet you half way.”
She begins to tear up and says jokingly, “Trust Oprah to make you cry.” then erupts in her signature laugh (what a cute moment that was)

The Nicki Minaj Summer Jam controversy isn’t over just yet. As if calling in to address HOT 97′s Funkmaster Flex on his live radio show wasn’t enough, Nicki also called in to speak with rival station Power 105.1 ‘The Breakfast Club’. She further defends her reason and Lil’ Wayne‘s decision to cancel her performance, adding Foxy Brown to her roaster of performers and not addresses irrelevant rappers (Lil’ Kim). Here’s what she had to say.
Nicki Minaj decided to call in to HoT 97′s Funkmaster Flex over a falling out over cancelling her Summer Jam performance. Although Nicki suggested she was advised by Lil’ Wayne to not do the show many people wondered why she would let her fans down and not perform.
In regards to her fans she says, “When you disrespect Nicki Minaj you’re disrespecting my fans.”
The duo went back on forth debating (talking over each other) on whether the comment should have been made at the event and the successes she’s had as the only female emcee dominating the industry.
Nicki says, “I was the only woman representing on Summer Jam stage.”
The main issue here is that it wasn’t Funkmaster Flex’s fight. Rosenberg made the comment then Rosenberg should have spoken to Nicki and even Wayne directly. Flex went on to say he would ruin Nicki’s career because he was upset that she didn’t take the stage.
Check out the 3 part interview and listen to the showdown.

Esquire: What has been the Twitter response to the Chris Brown remixes? Rihanna: Some love it, some hate it, some love it but hate that we did it. But the response in the end has been incredible.
Esquire: Was that [the recording session] the first time you’d seen him in a while? Rihanna: When would we have seen each other? We’ve both been working and touring. [changes the subject]. This is really good food.
Esquire: It proved quite a controversial thing. Rihanna: Well…definitely. Definitely. It caught me a little off-guard to be honest…especially the amount of…negative attention. Because it never occurred to me how this was a problem, you know. It really didn’t.
Esquire: Because enough time had passed that it was OK? Rihanna: I thought people were gonna be surprised that we finally did a record together, but I didn’t see how people could think it was a bad thing, you know? In my mind, it was just music.
Esquire: Some people felt it sent the wrong message. Rihanna: [Angrily] What was that? What message would that be?
