Venus Williams Hints at the Sex of Serena’s Baby During Post-Match Interview

Was the sex of Serena Williams’ first baby just revealed? A possible slip of the tongue — by Serena’s own sister, no less — may have let the cat out of the bag.

Venus Williams won her second-round match at the 2017 French Open while her pregnant little sister cheered her on from the stands. Venus briefly spoke with Eurosport following her match. When the reporter asked what Serena’s baby will call her, Venus’ answer was quite interesting.

“She’s going to call me favorite aunt. Of course it’s like every day we’re like baby V, baby Isha, baby Lyn. We all want the baby to be named after us.”

Does this mean Serena is having a girl? Though not technically confirmed, social media is definitely taking the casual quip as fact.

This is actually not the first time something was accidentally revealed regarding Serena’s pregnancy. The big announcement that she was expecting her first child was because of a social media mishap. Serena explained during the Ted Talks conference in April that she pressed the wrong button while documenting her pregnancy.

“Well, actually it was an accident. I was on vacation just taking some time for myself and I have this thing where I’ve been checking my status and taking pictures every week to see how far along I’m going. I didn’t tell a lot of people to be quite honest and I’d been saving it.

On social media, you press the wrong button and… Thirty minutes later I missed four calls and I’m like, ‘That’s weird.’ But it was a good moment. I was only going to wait five or six more days [to share].”

Serena is expecting her first child with her fiancé, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. The two spent the last week on their “babymoon” in Monaco.

The next big slip-up will be Serena’s due date.

WGN America Cancels Critically Acclaimed ‘Underground’ After Being Acquired by Conservative Company

Just when you thought the TV show massacre had ended, one more fan-favorite has been cancelled. After two seasons, WGN America has decided to cancel Underground.

The critically acclaimed drama followed slaves escaping to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Underground received much praise and was the No. 1 most-discussed cable drama on social media each night it aired during its 10-episode second season.

Tribune Media President and CEO Peter Kern made the announcement Tuesday (May 30) in a statement. He said in part:

“Despite ‘Underground’ being a terrific and important series, it no longer fits with our new direction and we have reached the difficult decision not to renew it for a third season.

We are tremendously proud of this landmark series that captured the zeitgeist and made an impact on television in a way never before seen on the medium.”

Underground staff and fans waited with bated breath for weeks as cancellation talks loomed due to Tribune recently being acquired by Sinclair Broadcasting Group. The new owners expressed plans to move WGN America into a “new direction,” focusing on conservative programing and potentially hiring Fox News Channel talent for news programs.

The drama starred Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Aldis Hodge and John Legend served as an executive producer. Producers are currently pitching the show to other networks including, BET, Hulu, and OWN. However, the show’s big budget may hinder discussions.

In preparation of the Sinclair deal, WGN America cancelled its only other original scripted show, Outsiders, back in April. The show was also the network’s highest-rated program.

Tiger Woods Found Asleep at the Wheel & Slurring Speech, Wasn’t Under the Influence of Alcohol

Details of Tiger Woods’ Memorial Day DUI arrest have emerged and according to the police report, the golf legend was NOT under the influence of alcohol as previously reported. However, he did fail a routine field sobriety test.

TMZ obtained the police report. According to the document, Jupiter, Florida police found Woods asleep at the wheel of his 2015 Mercedes at 2:03 a.m. on Monday (May 29) with the motor running, brake lights illuminated, and right blinker flashing. He was just 8 miles from his home.

Police say Woods “had extremely slow and slurred speech.” A disoriented Woods explained he was “coming from L.A. California from golfing,” but then admitted he didn’t know where he was.

He registered 0.000 on a Breathalyzer test, but failed other sobriety tests. He could not walk a straight line, was unable to stand on one leg and touch his nose, and when asked if he knew of the Romberg alphabet test, he responded, “yes, recite the national anthem backwards.”

Woods, who is recovering from an April back surgery, stated he takes several prescribed medications, including Solarex, Vicodin, and Torix. Vioxx was also listed, but hasn’t been taken in the last year.

Police noted the pro athlete was “cooperative as much as possible, very droopy, extremely sleepy, hard to keeps eyes open, [and] hard to walk.”

Woods was taken into police custody and cited for DUI and improper parking. There was no crash or damage to any property. He was released on his own recognizance with no bond a few hours later.

Following his arrest, Woods released a statement:

“I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions.

“I want the public to know that alcohol was not involved. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly.

“I would like to apologize with all my heart to my family, friends and the fans. I expect more from myself too. I will do everything in my power to ensure this never happens again.”

Woods is scheduled to make his first court appearance July 5.

Kim Kardashian Reveals She Hasn’t Spoken to Taylor Swift Since Exposing Her As a Liar & Forcing Her into Hiding

Kim Kardashian just gave an update on the status of her relationship with Taylor Swift since she hosted the #KimExposedTaylorParty last year.

Kim appeared on the Sunday night (May 28) broadcast of Watch What Happens Live as the New York-based show finished its week in LA. Host, Andy Cohen asked Kim if she had spoken or had any contact with Taylor since she exposed the pop star as a liar in a series of videos on Snapchat.

The TV personality didn’t verbally respond, but shook her head and shrugged her shoulders.

Kanye West’s longtime feud with Taylor became his wife’s feud last July when she released several videos of Taylor personally approving lyrics from Kanye’s song “Famous” during a private phone call. Kim posted the videos on Snapchat to expose Taylor after she publicly denounced the song.

Kanye reads Taylor the lyrics, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.” Taylor can then be heard calling the lyric a “compliment.”

“It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it. That’s really nice.”

Once Kim released the Snapchat videos, sparking the No. 1 trending hashtag #KimExposedTaylorParty, Taylor also released a social media statement. She explained she was unaware Kanye referred to her as a “b*tch” in the song and described Kim’s take-down as “character assassination.”

Taylor also wrote that she wanted to be “excluded from this narrative” Kim and Kanye have perpetuated for several years. And she did, leaving the public eye and social media for a long while. She was recently photographed for the first time in four months looking disheveled.

Kim’s update on her relationship with Taylor was a follow-up to an WWHL audience question. A fan described Kim exposing Taylor as the “best night of my life” and asked how their feud affected Kim’s sister, Kendall Jenner, being in Taylor Swift’s “squad” of friends.

“I don’t know if Kendall was a part of her squad. I don’t think she was. Yeah, so, I don’t think it was awkward.”

Clearly, there is nothing but “Bad Blood” between these Hollywood celebs. However, Taylor knows that she took major Ls in 2016. It will be interesting to see how she manipulates her comeback as she is reportedly preparing to release new music in 2017.

Willie Cory Godbolt: Man Arrested After Killing 8, Including Sheriff’s Deputy, in Mississippi Shooting Rampage

A man accused of going on a shooting rampage in Lincoln County, Mississippi Saturday night (May 27) that left 8 people dead, including a sheriff’s deputy, is in police custody.

The suspect has been named as 35-year-old Willie Cory Godbolt and the slain officer was identified as 36-year-old Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy William Durr.

Here are some things you need to know about Willie Godbolt and the shooting spree that took the lives of 8 people:

Godbolt shot and killed 8 people, including Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy William Durr.

According to the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation, the shootings started at around 11:30 p.m. at a residence in Bogue Chitto, Mississippi, where Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputy William Durr and three females were found dead.

The Clarion-Ledger named those victims (pictured above, L-R) as Barbara Mitchell (Godbolt’s mother-in-law, estranged wife’s mother), her daughter Toccarra May (his sister-in-law, estranged wife’s sister), and Mitchell’s sister Brenda May (Godbolt’s estranged wife’s aunt).

The bodies of two boys, identified as Jordan Blackwell and Austin Edwards, were also found at another crime scene in Brookhaven, MS, and a man and woman were found dead at a third crime scene.

The woman, Sheila Burage, was another sister of Godbolt’s estranged wife, and the man, Pharrell Burage, was the husband of the deceased woman.

At one point during his shooting spree Saturday, Godbolt had taken a 16-year-old boy hostage, but authorities said the teen was eventually freed and unharmed.

The slain officer, William Durr, was a father and husband and was considered a “good cop.”

According to the MBI, William Durr — a husband and father — had served with the sheriff’s department for two years and the Brookhaven Police Department for four years.

Durr was described as having a good heart and was said to be deeply religious. A little girl who Durr had given a “back the blue” bracelet to told her mother that he was “that good cop,” the girl’s mother recounted on Facebook.

Durr was also known to go into local schools with puppets and act as a ventriloquist for the children, delivering religious messages to them and singing songs for them like “Jesus Loves Me.”

The shootings were reportedly the result of a domestic incident regarding Godbolt’s estranged wife and children, and Godbolt said he never intended to kill the deputy.

While Willie Cory Godbolt was being arrested, a reporter from the Clarion-Ledger newspaper in Mississippi managed to get a statement (on video) from him:

Godbolt told The Clarion-Ledger that he had gone to that residence off Lee Road in order to talk about his children. At some point neighbors called police, and that’s when the deputy arrived to try to calm the situation.

“My pain wasn’t designed for him. He was just there,” Godbolt said of the deputy. “We was talking about me trying to take the children home … somebody called the officer … that’s what they do, they intervene. It cost him his life. I’m sorry.”

When asked what’s next for him, Godbolt said, “Death … Suicide by cop was my intention. I ain’t fit to live. Not after what I’ve done.”

Godbolt, of Bogue Chitto, told The Clarion-Ledger, as he was sitting on the ground, handcuffed, that he did it because he loved his wife and children and he loves Bogue Chitto.

Vincent Mitchell, Godbolt’s stepfather-in-law, told the Associated Press that Godbolt’s estranged wife and their two children had been staying at his home in Bogue Chitto for about three weeks after she left Godbolt.

Mitchell said that after the sheriff’s deputy arrived at the house, Godbolt looked like he was about to leave, but then he reached into his back pocket, retrieved a handgun and started shooting.

Mitchell said that he was able to escape with Godbolt’s wife, but three other family members in his home, in addition to the sheriff’s deputy, weren’t able to get out and they were killed.

Godbolt shouted “I love my wife, I love my kids, they would not let me live and let live!” while he was being arrested:

Another video from the scene of Godbolt’s arrest showed him shouting about how much he loved his wife and kids:

“I love my wife! I love my kids! They would not let me live and let live! I just wanted to live! I just wanted to love my family! I just wanted to love my wife!”

According to Clarion Ledger reporter Therese Apel, who spoke with Godbolt and recorded the video footage of his arrest, the suspect claimed that he was shot during the rampage.

Godbolt has a previous criminal history that includes armed robbery and aggravated assault.

According to a report from the Daily Leader, Godbolt is no stranger to the law and has a lengthy criminal history that includes armed robbery, aggravated assault, and more.

In 2005 he was charged with armed robbery and aggravated assault after he allegedly struck a man with a pistol and took his wallet, jewelry and cash outside a Bogue Chitto residence.

He was arrested for contempt of Justice Court and simple assault by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office in 2016.

Godbolt was arrested in 2015 for disorderly conduct/breach of peace and failure to comply with request by Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

He was arrested for driving with a suspended license, speeding and no proof of liability insurance by the Mississippi Highway Patrol in 2015.

In 2013, he was charged with simple assault by the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

A relative of Godbolt wrote on Facebook that “the devil won” and he was possessed.

A young woman named Kiyah Godbolt (who may be a niece of Godbolt) described the suspect as a provider and protector, and she believed that he was possessed by the devil when he committed the murders.

“The devil won more this morning. The devil possessed him. This was NOT the Uncle Cory everyone loved and knew,” she wrote. “He has hurt MANY..MANY…MANY families (most of all related to him) so I know what they’re feeling.”

See her full post below:

Kiyah also shared in a previous update (which was posted before he was arrested): “If y’all see my uncle, RUN. he is not in his right mind, he is not okay. He is GONE. this is not him. Something has taken over him. GO. GOOOO. RUN!! REPORT HIM.”

Godbolt could face the death penalty or life without parole.

As a result of his shooting spree that took the lives of 8 individuals, Godbolt has been charged with one count of capital murder and seven counts of first-degree murder.

A first degree murder charge typically carries a penalty of life in prison with the eligibility of parole, but thanks to his capital murder charge, if found guilty, Godbolt could be given the death penalty or life in prison without parole.
