Former “View” co-host Sherri Shepherd has bounced back with a vengeance after separating from estranged husband Lamar Salley. The adorable entertainer, who is currently on Broadway in “Cinderella,” hit WBLS radio personality Debi Jackson’s Tribute to her late husband Hal Jackson’s 100th birthday on November 10 at BB King in Times Square. Shepherd was escorted by her new man, AB, whom she canoodled with all evening. The couple seemed very happy. The star-studded event featured performances by Me’lisa Morgan, CeCe Penninston, Alyson Williams and Evelyn “Champagne” King, who were joined onstage at the end of the night by Melba Moore for a rousing rendition of “I’m Every Woman.” . ……….

Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal,  popped into Amy Ruth’s restaurant in Harlem where he’s a regular for a dose of Soul Food recently.

Terrell spent seven years as a running back with the San Diego Chargers. He is now a minister……..

Viewers all know that Rowan framed his estranged wife for the murder of Fitz’s son, and that Olivia believes she’s dead. However, long live Mama Pope!………

Nicki Minaj is getting a lot of backlash after featuring Nazi-like imagery in the lyric video for her latest single “Only.” The Anti-Defamation league released a statement speaking out against the video, in which the raptress plays a military dictator wearing red armbands.
