Former Spice Girl Melanie B. and former VJ turned actress La La Anthony have had their fair share of personal drama. But when it comes to statements they make in public, they generally tend to keep things classy. But when the two appeared on TNT’s “Drop The Mic,” a show where two celebrities battle each other with bars and flow, the two ladies didn’t hold back. Shots were fired. And while both women seemed to maintain a decent attitude about everything, there were a few times when it seemed like toes might have been stepped on, despite the plastered smiles.

Check out the battle between Mel B. and La La and see who won vs. who the people thought should have taken home the trophy.

X Factor finalist Anthony Russell ‘FaceTimed inmate once dubbed ‘Merseyside’s most wanted’ who was using smuggled phone’

X FACTOR finalist Anthony Russell reportedly had a video call with an inmate once dubbbed “Merseyside’s most wanted” on a mobile phone smuggled into prison.

The 28-year-old’s friendly chat on FaceTime with Michael Trevillion was posted in a screengrab on Facebook, the Mirror claims.

He was at ITV studios at the time he allegedly spoke to the 38-year-old using the account named John Smith.

Trevillion is serving four years in prison for burglary, but was keen to stress he is a huge fan of Anthony.

He wrote on social media on October 14: “Just had a belter chat with my mate Anthony Russell an [sic] he’s got the X Factor xxx”.

Singer Anthony from Liverpool will perform in the final of the ITV show this weekend up against Salton Harris and Scarlett Lee.

He insisted he would be dead if he hadn’t met his mentor Louis Tomlinson who paid for him to go through rehab after pulling out last year over his drug and alcohol addiction.

Since getting sober Anthony has formed a close bond with the One Direction singer – and jumped into his arms after it was announced that he will be in the upcoming final.

He hit the headlines earlier in the series when he inundated a young mum with unwanted sex videos and texts.

He was repeatedly warned by the mum to stop sending the explicit messages and was told her child’s iPad was linked to her phone.

Anthony apologised, saying: “I’m sorry if I’ve upset her or caused any ­offence.”

A source close to Anthony reportedly told the newspaper: “This guy called out of the blue through Facebook Messenger and Anthony answered.

“Anthony had no idea that he was in prison using an illegal phone.”

Anthony Bourdain’s Final Episode: A Touching Tribute to Fellow New York Misfits

David Scott Holloway

It would have been easy to make the final posthumous episode of Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown a sentimental tribute to the late host. And in fact, CNN did air such an episode, featuring interviewers with friends and admirers a few weeks ago. But instead, this Sunday night’s series finale, set in New York’s Lower East Side, is an almost entirely selfless examination of the artists who shaped Bourdain’s life during the early days of his restaurant career.

Mostly absent from the episode is food, aside from a chocolate egg cream here and a a bowl of soup at Veselka there. Instead of interviewing chefs, Bourdain visits a series of once revolutionary punk rockers, performance artists and experimental filmmakers who are trying to figure out a way to maintain relevance in the 21st century.

Debbie Harry. Fab 5 Freddy. Jim Jarmusch. These are his people.
