Kyrie Irving's Post

Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving is taken on a new role - philanthropist. The point guard is committing $1.5 million of his own money to the WNBA players who are choosing to not play this season due to COVID-19 and social justice concerns.


The Massive Donation

Last Saturday, the 2020 WNBA season began, with the whole season taking place at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. This year, many key players including Liz Cambage, Chiney Ogwumike, Kristi Toliver and Tina Charles are forgoing the season for health reasons and social justice causes. The donation will go to players in these situations and will be part of the KAI Empowerment Initiative made by Kyrie Irving to provide WNBA players with "comprehensive financial literacy program" as well. According to Bleacher Report, Irving said:

"Whether a person decided to fight for social justice, play basketball, focus on physical or mental health, or simply connect with their families, this initiative can hopefully support their priorities and decisions,"

We commend Irving's actions and his promotion of women's basketball!

Teddi Mellencamp will reportedly not be appearing on upcoming seasons of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Beginning with season 8, Mellencamp has been a regular member of the RHOBH cast. The finale of season 10 recently aired, leaving fans waiting for filming to begin again. According to an exclusive source with Dailymail.com, Mellencamp will not be returning.

The anonymous source, who was listed as a "production insider," told Daily Mail that the RHOBH producers found Teddi Mellencamp to be "boring and stale." They also noted that the other cast members do not particularly like her.

The insider said:

"She is boring and stale and does not offer anything to the franchise with her robotic and staged delivery when interacting with the other cast members."

Mellencamp was reportedly almost cut last season but the producers decided to give her a second chance. At this point in time, the decision seems final.

Bravo has yet to comment about the casting decision.
