*Meghan Markle’s bestie Jessica Mulruney is being called out for her “white privilege” by a Black lifestyle blogger that she’s been feuding with. 

In a 12-minute long video, Sasha Exeter, who runs the website SoSasha, said Mulroney “took offense” when she called on social media influencers to use their platforms to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

“What happened next was a series of very problematic behavior and antics that ultimately resulted in [Mulroney] sending me a threat in writing last Wednesday,” Exeter said.

“Listen, I am by no means calling Jess a racist but what I will say is this, she is very well aware of her wealth, her perceived power and privilege because of the color of her skin. And that, my friends, gave her the momentary confidence to come for my livelihood in writing,” she continued.

I’ve been silent. Not anymore!⁣ ⁣ I’m used to being so transparent on this platform. I think it’s the main reason why most of you follow me. Today, I’m opening up about something that has been haunting me for the last week. I have felt like a complete fraud fighting for racial equality and using my voice openly here, while letting a white woman silence mine behind closed doors. In sharing this very personal story, I know that I am risking a lot. Opening myself up to criticism, bullying and potential ramifications with my job in this space. However, I must speak my truth. Enough is enough. Hopefully my voice will be heard by many and help change things for the next generation and for my daughter Maxwell… because I will be dammed if my child ever has to deal with this level of ignorance.

Exeter said Mulroney reached out to various brands to whine “about the way you have treated me unfairly” and then blocked her social. 

“During the span of about a week or so, Jessica basically ticked every single box of what a white woman should absolutely not do during the biggest racial uproar in history,” Exeter said.

“For her to threaten me  ― a single mom, a single black mom — during a racial pandemic blows my mind,” Exeter added. “The goal here is genuine, transformative change ― not optical and performative bulls—. You cannot be posting that you stand in solidarity while attempting to silence somebody via text.”

Exeter described Mulroney’s antics as an example of “textbook white privilege.”

Please read my statement. It is from my heart.

Mulroney commented on the video to apologize, and referenced her friendship with Meghan Markle, who Exeter called “arguably one of the most famous Black women in the world.”

“You are right when you say ‘this s— needs to stop,’ ” said Mulroney, who is married to Ben Mulroney, the son of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. “As leaders, we need to join hands and call out wrongs. I know we have different experiences. And that is something that, even in the course of a heated argument, I need to acknowledge and understand. I am unequivocally sorry for not doing that with you, and for any hurt I caused.”

The stylist continued, “As I told you privately, I have lived a very public and personal experience with my closest friend where race was front and centre. It was deeply educational. I learned a lot from that. I promise to continue to learn and listen on how I can use my privilege to elevate and support black voices.”

Mulroney will have plenty of time to reflect now that her TV show “I Do, Redo” has been pulled from the Canadian network CTV amid her beef with Sasha.

The Pulse of Entertainment: Season 2 of ‘The Chosen’ Begins Filming in Utah at LDS Motion Picture Studio

Published

The second season of the epic tale of the life of Jesus Christ, The Chosen, begins filming.

*“Dallas, he did a short film for his church,” said Derral Eves, about the film The Chosen that resulted in an epic television series that has been viewed by 50 million people, with 50 different languages, and in 180 countries. Eves, a Youtube marketing guru, is the executive producer of the series. “It was shown to me. It was just amazing. I said, ‘Let’s do a television series.’ That’s how I got in on the project. I met Dallas and we became partners.”

The Chosen is about the life of Jesus Christ through the eyes of his relationship with each of his Disciples. The first season ends with Jesus still with us in the current day still spreading His ministry. I first watched the series on an airplane flight from Los Angeles to Baltimore at a time when I was so starved for a Biblically-based film on the life of Jesus Christ. Until Derral told me I thought it was an epic movie mini-series, not an eight-part television series. That is a testament to the creative writing skills, artistic imagination and outstanding directing skills of Dallas Jenkins – the creator and director of The Chosen. The Chosen was initially aired for free via VidAngel, a streaming platform and a mobile app in April 2020. In October it began airing on BYUtv.

The second season of The Chosen began shooting in November under the leadership of Director Dallas Jenkins in Utah at the Motion Picture Studio South Campus owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It is the first multi-season project filmed on the studio that is not a Latter-Day Saints project. It will have eight episodes.

“Season one has eight episodes. Each one is about Jesus gathering his Disciples. There were other people Jesus asked to follow Him. We weaved them into moments in the Bible. Dallas does a wonderful job,” said Derral (Youtube) about the series. “The first season was shot in Texas. This current season, the Latter-Day Saints building is the set. I knew about it because I live nearby, so we reached out.”

The second season of The Chosen follows Jesus and His group of Disciples through personal and interpersonal ups and downs as Jesus’ notoriety grows as they take his ministry on the road. It will cover Jesus’ time in Samaria and the Sermon of the Mount.

“Dallas does the approach of humans,” Eves added about the second season of The Chosen. “Everything in the Bible is thought-out…it resonates. People can connect…see themselves.”

The series, which received its initial $20 million funding from public donations, is a The Chosen Productions VidAngel Studios production that stars Jonathan Roumie (“Chicago Med,” “Ballers”) as Jesus, Shahar Isaac (“Madame Secretary”) as Simon Peter, and Paras Patel (“Nashville”) as Matthew. It is distributed by VidAngel. Aside from Derral as executive producer, there is Dallas, Matthew Faraci and Ryan Swanson. Producers include Chad Gudersen and Justin Tolley. It also stars Erick Avari as Nicodemus; Noah James as Andrew; Elizabeth Tabish as Mary Magdalene; George Harrison Xanthis as John; Abe Martell as Big James; Giavai Cairo as Thaddaeus; Jordan Walker Ross as Little James; Joey Vahedi as Thomas; Yoshi Barrihas as Philip; Austin Alleman as Nathanael; Alaa Safi as Judas Iscariot; Vanessa Beavente as Mary; David Amito as John the Baptist; Raj Bond as Joseph; Nick Shakoour as Zebedee, and Lara Silva as Simon Peter’s wife Eden. www.TheChosen.tv

*Fredro Starr is on the record saying that an ONYX vs. M.O.P would be the bomb-diggety!

“I think that would be perfect, ONYX and M.O.P. I’m cool with Fame and Billy that’s our peoples. I wanted to do a Verzuz against M.O.P. because they came out when we came out. They represent Brooklyn we represent Queens but we had that same energy almost. That early 90s, rough, unfiltered, no f*ckin gold chains on, straight hardcore. It would be a good Verzuz battle, it would be crazy!

Should be other platforms, Verzuz can only do so much, not sure if Timbaland would want a battle with ONYX & M.O.P

“Verzuz can only do but so much and if they are selecting everything, Then there are other artists I’m sure that wanna do it. I think there should be more platforms to do that besides Verzuz. I think there should be other platforms so hopefully, somebody will jump to it and we get to do that battle. I don’t think Swizz (Beats) and Timbaland are gonna Ok that one. I know Swizz is a big fan of ONYX but I never met Timbaland so I don’t know.”

Dr. Dre’s Eldest Daughter Hasn’t Seen Music Mogul in 17 Years [VIDEO]

Dr. Dre and daighter LaTanya


*Dr Dre’s eldest daughter LaTanya Young has revealed that she has not seen her superstar rapper father in 17 years.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV Young, 37, said she wants a relationship with her Dre, and she makes clear that she is not after his riches. The hip-hop icon is allegedly worth about $800 million.

“Money is not what I want, I feel better doing it on my own,” she told Daily Mail TV. 

“I really just want to have closure. I just want to be able to spend time with my father.”

The mom-of-four reportedly told the publication that Dre has never even met her children.

According to Young, she was forced to go through her father’s staff to communicate with him as a child.

“I hated going through third parties. If I needed him, I’d have to go to the studio and get bombarded and talked to by his security,” she said. “I would have to go through his accountant or his right hand man, I would never know whether he got my messages. I have never had a direct line to him.”

Dre split with LaTanya’s mother, Lisa Johnson, when she was five years old. The couple had three children together: LaTanya, LaToya, 36, and Ashley, 35.

In 1996 he married Nicole Young and they are currently embattled in a bitter divorce.

Nicole filed documents to end her marriage back in June, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. 

She and Dre have two adult children. Dre also has four children from previous relationships.

“I thought that my dad would come around. I would like him to make me feel like a daughter,” LaTanya added.
