Jordan Nixon, a 17-year-old high school senior at Douglas County High, has been accepted into 39 colleges and awarded $1.6 million in scholarships.

“We’re so happy for her because she does put in a lot of due diligence into applying for these schools,” Nixon’s parents Angelia and Arthur Nixon told CBS 46.

Her parents also described her as independent, well-rounded and an active participant in a plethora of extracurricular activities, CBS 46 reported.

Nixon also spoke to Fox 5 Atlanta this link opens in a new tab, explaining that she hopes her story inspires others.

Kimora Lee Simmons Plans a Major Relaunch For Baby Phat

Dont call it a comeback.

Creator Kimora Lee Simmons Leissner made the announcement Friday, revealing she had personally purchased the brand from whatever company and is planning to bring it back in a major way.

via Complex:

“We had to hunt around for it,” she told WWD. “[…] It’s perfect timing for this. Over the past several years, we realized the brand resonates with people and lives deep in their souls.”

Baby Phat was a sub-label of the Phat Fashions imprint owned by Leissner’s ex-husband Russell Simmons. The brand served as the womenswear counterpart of Phat Farm, and earned more than a billion dollars in sales during its heyday. Baby Phat, along with the Phat Fashions companies, was sold to Kellwood Apparel in 2004. A couple of years later, Leissner took on the role of brand president, and held that position until 2010. The details surrounding her departure were not revealed; however, Leissner would go on to suggest that the move was not her decision. 

It’s over. It’s absolutely over. It was very abrupt and sudden. I was shocked,” she told the Daily News in 2010. “It’s very, very sad for me. It was totally unexpected.”

Leissner told WWD that the Baby Phat relaunch is scheduled for spring, and that it will deliver “mainstream sportswear” pieces for millennials. She said the inaugural collection will take cues from her personal archives, resulting in a mix of retro and modern elements.

“We’re working fast and furiously and have a lot up our sleeves,” she said.

Come thru 90s fashion!

Take A Look Inside Porsha Williams’ Winter Wonderland-Themed Baby Shower

Porsha Williams‘ baby shower was a magical extravaganza.

The very went down Feb 24. in Atlanta.

via People:

Williams’ 80 guests — including sister Lauren and her RHOA costars Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey — wore white for the elegant event, entering the transformed space that featured ice sculptures, white flowers from Akeem Clayton, delicate linen napkins and more among a white-and-rose-gold color palette. The initials “PJ,” a nod to her daughter on the way, adorned the backs of the chairs while the floor read, “Celebrating PJ.”

“The day was magical,” the mom-to-be tells PEOPLE exclusively for this week’s issue, sharing a collection of photos from the stunning shower thrown by her “loving fiancé,” Dennis McKinley and planned alongside ellyB Events. “It was amazing to walk into a room and feel that much love. I have such a tremendous support system around me and women who lift me up and are just so incredibly happy for me.”

“I’ve waited a really really long time for this moment,” adds Williams, 37 (the star announced her pregnancy in September, six years after suffering a miscarriage). “I am cherishing each minute and enjoy every day being pregnant. It’s a blessing for us.”

The delectable spread provided by Chef Donald Wilsonincluded hors d’oeuvres like seasonal fruit, baked brie, teriyaki chicken tenderloin and shrimp ceviche served on edible spoons.

For the buffet station, Williams and McKinley’s family and friends could choose among organic kale salad, lemon rosemary chicken breast with caper sauce, pan-seared salmon with red-onion marmalade, roasted potatoes, orecchiette pasta with chardonnay cream sauce and pesto, green beans and grilled ciabbata.

House-made banana pudding and Georgia peach cobbler made up the sweet portion of the buffet, while guests sipped on sparkling mango beverages and lemon, strawberry and mint water between bites.

“There also wasn’t a space on the dance floor,” Williams (who wore a custom, handmade dress by Derron Cherry and was styled by Jeremy Hanes) tells PEOPLE of the “nonstop” portion of the shower. “The room was filled with laughter and zero stress — only well wishes for the McKinleys.”

And just in case banana pudding and peach cobbler weren’t enough to satisfy party-goers’ sweet tooth, Williams offered a hot-chocolate station and lavish display of desserts provided by Sweet Details, which was chock full of items like macaron towers, cheesecake shooters, chocolate-truffle cake pops, cupcakes and cookie stacks.

The confectionery centerpiece? A gorgeous (and tasty) multi-layer creation by LaMeeka Custom Cake Designs, featuring vanilla bean, butter-almond and red-velvet pastry goodness.

GB Design House provided the napkins for the event, hot-chocolate supplies, popcorn boxes, chocolate truffles for guests to take home, stir sticks and advice coasters, which guests filled out to give their best parenting tips to the mom- and dad-to-be.

Lauren (outfitted in a dress from Williams’ new line, Porsha Williams) and Dish Nation co-host Gary Hayes hosted a hair game. As Williams, owner of Go Naked Hair, explains to PEOPLE, “They had a contest among women [of] who could style the hair on plastic heads the best. The ladies were extremely competitive and it was so much fun!”

R. Kelly Denies All Sexual Abuse Allegations In Interview : ‘I’m Fighting for My F*cking Life’ 

I showed you a short teaser of R. Kelly’s explosive interview with Gayle King, but now we have the full thing and it’s too much smh

The singer, who is currently facing 10 counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, denies ever being involved with underage girls.

Gayle King: They are still talking about you with underage girls. Do you still sit here and say you have never been with underage girls. Can you really say that?

R. Kelly: I sit here and say this: I had two cases back then that I said in the beginning of the interview that I would not talk about because of my ongoing case now.

Gayle King: Ok.

R. Kelly: Fair enough, but I will tell you this: people are going back to my past, OK? That’s exactly what they’re doing. They’re going back to the past, and they trying to add all of this stuff now to that. To make all of this stuff that’s going on now feels real to people.

Gayle King: But the past is relevant with you with underage girls?

R. Kelly: Absolutely, no it’s not. Because for one, I beat my case. When you beat something, you beat it.

Gayle King: You were acquitted.

R. Kelly: You can’t double-jeopardy me like that. You can’t. It’s not fair. It’s not fair to nobody. When you beat your case, you beat your case.

Gayle King: But I’m not talking about the one case in which you were acquitted. I’m talking about the other cases where women have come forward and said, “R. Kelly had sex with me when I was under the age of 18. R. Kelly was abusive to me emotionally and physically and verbally. R. Kelly took me in a black room where unspeakable things happened.” This is what they’re saying about you.

R. Kelly: Not true.

Gayle King: These aren’t old rumors.

R. Kelly: Not true. Whether they’re old rumors, new rumors, future rumors, not true.

Gayle King: Correct me if I’m wrong that you’ve never held anybody against their will?

R. Kelly: I don’t need to. Why would I? How stupid would it be for R. Kelly, with all I’ve been through in my way, way past, to hold somebody, let alone 4, 5, 6, 50, you said – how stupid would I be to do that?

Gayle King: I didn’t say you were holding –

R. Kelly: That’s stupid, guys!  Is this camera on me?

Gayle King: Yes, it’s on.

R. Kelly: That’s stupid! Use your common sense. Forget the blogs, forget how you feel about me. Hate me if you want to, love me if you want. But just use your common sense. How stupid would it be for me, with my crazy past and what I’ve been through – oh right now I just think I need to be a monster and hold girls against their will, chain them up in my basement, and don’t let them eat, don’t let them out, unless they need some shoes down the street from their uncle!

Gayle King: Robert –

R. Kelly: Stop it. You don’t quit playing. Quit playing. I didn’t do this stuff! This is not me! I’m fighting for my f***ing life!
