Dennis McKinley Denies Cheating. Will Porsha Williams Take Him Back? | What's The 411 | Couples

Porsha Williams, one of the stars of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, has her hands full.

Porsha just gave birth to a baby girl and she finds out that her boyfriend and father of her child, Dennis McKinley, may have been cheating on her with some unsavory characters.

Many people who are following the Porsha Williams and Dennis McKinley saga are wondering if Porsha is done with Dennis for good or will she take Dennis back for the sake of their daughter.

AllAboutTheTEA.com calls McKinley a “clout chaser” who is using Williams “to promote his new streaming business”.

According to Tasha K of Unwine with Tasha K: “Dennis McKinley is allegedly a coke head. [He] is allegedly a get-rich-quick scheme artist. [He] is allegedly into animal porn. [He] is allegedly a compulsive liar and woman beater — because he beat his ex, Shanise Thomason, several times.”

Do you think Porsha will take Dennis back or is she done for good?

Is it okay for children to not share their toys?

A dad in a children’s park told his kid not to share his toy with another child, and of course, the mother of the other child was miffed.

According to some psychologists, the father was right to tell his child not to share because children shouldn’t be forced to share.

Many of us have grown up with our parents insisting that we share our toys, books, and sometimes clothing with our siblings, relatives, and friends.

Now, with this new thinking that children should be able to determine on their own when they want to share or, not share, some of us are left perplexed.

What is this world coming to?

Dionne Warwick Gets a Taste of the Beyhive After Beyonce Comment

Don't Call Me Auntie! Diva of Comedy Says After Beyhive Comes for Dionne Warwick’s Edges

Recently, the legendary Dionne Warwick had an interview with Essence and because Ms. Warwick did not bow down to Beyonce with her response to a question regarding Beyonce’s “iconic” status, the Beyhive came for her edges. Ms. Warwick stated the following:

‘It’s wonderful to see how she’s been able to create what and who she wanted to be and who she is.’

‘Now, sustaining and becoming an icon that Gladys Knight, or Patti LaBelle, Johnny Mathis, Frank Sinatra, or Sammy Davis Jr. is? I doubt that I really do. I love her to death, and I can really appreciate her talent. But that status I just mentioned, those four names? [She has] a long road [ahead].’

Was Ms. Warwick’s response a diss toward Beyonce?

Make sure you watch Onika’s response over the Auntie Twitter comment!

The Struggle for Hairstylists Competent in Styling Black Hair is Real

VIDEO DISCUSSION: The Hollywood Black Hairstyling Dilemma

The lack of black hairstylists and those competent in styling black hair in Hollywood has been an ongoing struggle for some of Hollywood’s biggest names gracing the big and small screen.

Actress Viola Davis recently told Ebony magazine: “That has not been my narrative lately of hair because I refuse it. I reject it … I don’t think that people understand our hair … they don’t understand that we’re different, and yet, the same. What I find is, hair is something that a lot of people don’t honor when you do film.”

In rejecting the notion of not having a competent hairstylist on set, Academy Award-winning actress, Viola Davis, says she refuses to work with hairstylists who can’t do black hair.

Black hairstylists are competent in doing all types of hair, so why can’t other hairstylists be as competent?

Is it too much to ask that non-Black hairstylists be competent in styling black hair?

XXXTentacion’s Girlfriend Won The Right to Obtain A DNA Test, What’s Next?

XXXTentacion, a Miami-based rapper who was on the rise to stardom, was murdered on June 18, 2018, leaving behind his pregnant girlfriend, Jenesis Sanchez, as well as his mother, and siblings.

Ms. Sanchez gave birth to the late rapper’s son, Gekyume Onfroy on January 26, 2019.

Earlier this year, Ms. Sanchez requested permission to obtain a DNA sample from XXXTentacion’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, who is the Administrator of X’s estate. From some reports, initially, XXXTentacion’s mother said yes but then decided to block the DNA sample. This move seemed strange considering that XXXTentacion’s mother was the one who broke the news on her official Instagram account that a grandchild was on the way with a post of an image of a sonogram along with the caption “he left us a final gift.” She also announced the birth of her grandson.

In court filings to support her claim, Ms. Sanchez detailed that she and XXX had “sexual relations during the time that Gekyume was conceived from February 19 through June 18, 2018, the day of the Decedent’s death.”

Ultimately, the judge sided with Ms. Sanchez, giving her the right to obtain a DNA sample, according to The Blast.

Dark Phoenix rises. [MOVIE REVIEW]

X-Men, the mutant subspecies of humans born with superhuman abilities returns to the big screen.

In Dark Phoenix, the mutants do battle with one of their own, Jean Grey who possesses telepathic and telekinetic skills. While on a space rescue mission, Jean barely escapes death after being hit by a mysterious cosmic force. When she returns home, a routine exam shows that this force gave her power beyond what any gage could measure. But this force leads her to react in ways she neither understands nor can control. Not only are her loved ones at risk, but she disrupts a fragile peace with both the humans and other X-Men communities.

There have been 11 X-Men films which in total produced almost $6 billion in revenues. The studios and writers strain to come up with new and interesting stories from the Marvel comics concept. This story of the powerful and out of control Jean Grey works and Dark Phoenix gets a See It! rating.

I really liked the plotline of a woman being the kick-ass, strongest character in the heavily male-dominated X-Men series!

Fundamental to the X-Men story is the battle with humans. And then there’s the intragroup debate with some mutants supporting a peaceful coexistence with humans, while others see fighting it out as the answer. It has been written that this debate was patterned after Martin Luther King Jr.’s philosophy of nonviolence in dealing with American racism versus Malcolm X’s more aggressive and confrontation approach. These recurring conflicts have served this series well. And there are elements of these controversies in Dark Phoenix.

Much the appeal of the sci-fi genre is the mind-blowing special effects and this film like most of the big-budget productions doesn’t disappoint.

Diversity, or the lack thereof, has always been an issue with the X-Men series, which is not surprising considering the characters were created over 50 years ago. Men of color are especially lacking in the series. There is the introduction of a black character, Jones, played by Ato Essandoh, who is an X-Men adversary. Dark Phoenix earns a “C” for diversity.

It’s rated PG-13 (for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action including some gunplay, disturbing images) and brief strong language and is 113 minutes in length. It gets a See It! rating.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 Is Worth A Look [MOVIE REVIEW]

Once again Max (a Jack Russell Terrier), and his sidekick, Duke (Newfoundland mix), take viewers on a journey into secret pet world. In this film, Max faces a potentially radical life change: his owner Katie gets married and has a child, Liam. Originally unsure about how Liam’s coming on the scene will affect him, Max prepares for the worst. Only to have Liam love him as much as Katie does.

On a family trip to his grandparents’ farm, Max meets Rooster, a Welsh Sheepdog, who teaches Max lessons that will help in the countryside and beyond.

Before leaving, Max leaves his favorite toy with his pal, Gidget (a Pomeranian) for safekeeping. But the toy bounces out the window into a cat-packed apartment. She has to figure out how to get it back. Snowball (a rabbit) visits a circus and decides to free an unfairly treated white tiger named Hu.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 has the same characters featured in the start-of-the-art 3D animation which made the original film a success. But it has more plots than you’d see in a two-hour drama. The market for this film is children; however, I have to wonder if they want to see all of this on-screen busyness.

There’s a star-studded cast providing the voices: Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish, Dana Carvey, Bobby Moynihan, and Harrison Ford. Kevin Hart’s voice just doesn’t fit the little white rabbit named Snowball.  Maybe a Pitbull. But not a small bunny.

As I have said before I don’t understand why studios spend bundles hiring big name stars to do the voices. Kids don’t care. The characters’ voice can be from unknown performers.

Ultimately, The Secret Life of Pets 2 provides the visual stimulation and characters that viewers would like to see, and it musters a See It! rating.

It’s rated PG and is 86 minutes in length.

RHOA Porsha Williams’ Relationship in Disarray; Hollywood Needs Help with Black Hair [Episode 144]

VIDEO DISCUSSION: The growing number of conservative abortion laws and why are men so quiet? The Beyhive stings Ms. Dionne Warwick

In Episode 144 of What's The 411 recorded on June 4, 2019, the hosts, award-winning journalist, Kizzy Cox, and comedian, Onika McLean, are talking about:

Abortion Rights and the Lack of Male participation

Where are the men who believe that women have the right to full agency over their bodies? Why are they so quiet?

Hollywood Needs Help in the Black Hair Department

The lack of black hairstylists in the entertainment industry has been an ongoing struggle for some of Hollywood’s biggest names gracing the big and small screen. Is it time for Hollywood’s non-Black hairstylists to learn how to style Black Hair? Viola Davis thinks so.

Dionne Warwick got entangled in the web of the Beyhive

Iconic songstress, Dionne Warwick, ran afoul of Beyonce’s most fervent fans, the Beyhive, because of a response she gave during an interview with Essence. The Beyhive thought Ms. Warwick was throwing shade at Beyonce when she stated the following when answering if Beyonce is an icon:

‘It’s wonderful to see how she’s been able to create what and who she wanted to be and who she is.’

‘Now, sustaining and becoming an icon that Gladys Knight, or Patti LaBelle, Johnny Mathis, Frank Sinatra, or Sammy Davis Jr. is? I doubt that, I really do. I love her to death, and I can really appreciate her talent. But that status I just mentioned, those four names? [She has] a long road [ahead].’

Is it all a misunderstanding on the part of the Beyhive or, did Ms. Warwick really throw shade at Beyonce?

The Mother of XXXTentacion’s Child Wins Right to DNA Sample

A judge ruled that XXXTentacion’s girlfriend, Jenesis Sanchez, can obtain a sample of the deceased rapper’s DNA. X's mother, Cleopatra Bernard, was a proud grandmother at the time of X’s baby’s birth. However, later she attempted to block Ms. Sanchez from receiving the DNA sample. In the end, the judge sided with Ms. Sanchez and granted the petition.

Reports state Ms. Bernard isn’t too happy. Can you write this script?

Children’s Sharing Etiquette

Most of us grew up with lessons from our parents and teachers about sharing our toys, books, and other childhood possessions with our friends and classmates. However, some psychologists are turning that life lesson upside down, saying that it’s okay for children to not share their possessions.

Is this generation of psychologists going off the rails, or, were we brought up the wrong way?

Porsha, Porsha, Porsha

The Internet is all abuzz over what appears to be a breakup between Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Porsha Williams, and her new beau, Dennis McKinley over what appears to be his cheating with another reality TV star, Sincerely Ward. 

It’s one thing to have a breakup in private, but a public breakup with someone who is the father of your newborn child, that’s rough. However, Porsha’s fans really got amped and seemingly have her back after learning that All About The Tea and Tasha K of Unwine with Tasha K seem to have receipts to prove that Dennis was cheating on Porsha while using her to climb the social ladder.

Stay tuned, after all, it’s reality TV.

Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter to gauge her interest on co-sponsoring legislation to create a lifetime ban on Members of Congress serving as paid lobbyists once they have left office. When Ocasio-Cortez realized Cruz was serious, she agreed to work with him on the legislation.

Abortion Debate in Alabama, Georgetown Reparations Vote, and More [What’s The 411 Quick Takes]

VIDEO DISCUSSION: Alabama legislators seeking very stringent abortion law; will Cynthia Bailey return to RHOA, and; Tatyana Ali expecting baby No. 2

Will Cynthia Bailey return to the Atlanta Housewives? Tatyana Ali just announced on Instagram that she is pregnant. This will be the actress' second child with husband, Dr. Vaughn Rasberry. Georgetown University students voted overwhelmingly in favor of $27 fee for slavery reparations to create a fund benefiting descendants of the 272 slaves sold to pay off the Georgetown Jesuits' debt. If Alabama state Rep. Terri Collins has her way, getting an abortion two weeks after conception could, in theory, be a capital offense, and punishable by the death penalty.
