Janet Jackson in talks with Netflix about reality series

Janet Jackson is set to star in her own documentary show. She’s in negotiations with Netflix over her own ten-part show. It would give fans an insight into Janet’s life in the wake of her recent split from her husband and follow her day-to-day life.

Idolator spills the tea;

“Janet has been fiercely private about her life in the past but feels the need to keep her fans in the loop with what life has been like since she went into hiatus ten years ago,” a source reportedly told The Sun. “The show will run as a ten-part documentary and will feature recording ­sessions in the studio, co-parenting her child with Wissam and preparing for the European and Asian legs of her tour. Netflix are negotiating a big sum for the rights to the show as they expect it to perform well.” I’m not going to lie, I’d totally watch this.

Will you be binge watching tea sippers?

Chance the Rapper Won’t Run for Office

Fans may have wanted CHANCE THE RAPPER to run for Mayor of Chicago, but unfortunately, that dream will never come true for them. Chance tells “Ebony” magazine, quote, “I would never run for any office or government position.
“I’m not into it. I think politics is a reason why a lot of stuff doesn’t get done . . . I think when you’re in my position as an artist, I can say what I want and talk about the issues that matter.”

What are your thoughts tea sippers? Which celebrity do you feel can run for office?

#AskALady “Bae Friend”

Every week I take the chance to answer some tea sippers questions on my #CatchTheTea Podcast and #CatchTheTeaAfterDark. The questions are always quite interesting. Not only do I give my feedback but my guest co host answer the questions as well.

I’m trying something new. I teamed up with Eminence Photography & Videography with bringing the actual letter to life. This week’s letter comes from Jeanelle Griffin;


I think I have played the game long enough and I’m looking to settle down. But I need to make a decision ASAP out of the few men I have been “boo loving” with since cuffing season is vastly approaching.

I’ve been juggling three different guys for about a year, I’ve only had sex with two out of the three. They are all special to me in their own way and two of them or pressing for a relationship.

Guy number one stays so far away but has been there for me no matter what I go through. He calls me daily. We talk about everything under the sun. He’s even helped me out of a few binds. We’ve visited each other about 4 times out of this year. We haven’t had sex at all but there is definitely some type of connection. He claims if we make “us” official that he would considered moving closer in order to make our relationship work.

Then there is guy number two, who gives me life. We hang out. Movies, shopping together, a few baecays here and there. Not to mention some good sexing. The only downfall with him is communication is horrible. Conversations are cool but they are always about clothes, Jordan, video games. Shit I’m not interested in but talk about only because of him. Now he isn’t pressing for a relationship but he is an option.

Then Mr Three. He’s an ex who has been hounding for a second chance I haven’t explain to him about my situationships, but he is aware there is someone else taking up my time besides him. He was a good boyfriend, but I just couldn’t deal with his lack of motivation. He didn’t want to set goals and was just complacent with life. Since we’ve have been broken up he’s done a complete turnaround. Wanting to make and chage in his life and actually doing something about it. I lowkey still have feelings for him, and, yet again I’m not sure what to do.

Can you kind me in the right direction?

We make Jeanelle’s question come to life. Check it out below tea sippers.
