A BIG victory and congratulations goes out to DC's own, Kara McCullough! For the second consecutive year, Miss District of Columbia, a black woman and HBCU graduate, has been crowned Miss USA. Outgoing 2016 Miss USA, Deshauna Barber crowned her fellow Washington, D.C. resident Sunday night in Las Vegas. McCullough is a chemist working for the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. However, the new Miss USA raised some eyebrows with her thoughts on healthcare and feminism. A big defeat in this case goes to comedian, Mo'Nique. Mo’Nique tells Lee Daniels, Tyler Perry and Oprah, “you can suck my d*ck, if I had one". For years, Monique has talked about being blackballed from Hollywood for being too “real”. She even claimed that she was supposed to have the role of "Cookie" on Fox's EMPIRE. Her suspicions were confirmed when director Lee Daniels suggested that Mo'Nique's career slowed down after winning an Oscar for her role in Precious because she didn't know how to "play the game". This is crazy! The actor who played Suge Knight in ‘Straight Outta Compton’ was arrested for acting like...Suge Knight? Richard Marcus Taylor was arrested in Miami for allegedly beating up a security guard. Looks like he has a challenging time getting out of character! You choose, victory or defeat - cinnamon-flavored Pepsi hitting shelves this summer, Pepsi Fire. Pepsi Fire will be available at major retailers and select 7-Eleven stores as a Slurpee. Will you be drinking this?? In studio, we had a special guest, Zoye Blacc (Bringing Light And Changing Culture (Blacc). Check him out on our, "Show up or Shut up" segment and at @zoyeblacc for all show and event updates. We are back next Wednesday, 9-10pm with more of what you want!
