Last week Evelyn’s “assistant”, Nia Crooks who also goes by the name of Penny Olay, filed a police report claiming Jennifer Williams had stolen her keys. Well Penny Olay/Nia Crooks and Jennifer Williams use to be best friends, although the show is trying to pretend like Penny Olay once worked for Jennifer Williams as an “assistant”. Well I did a little digging and found this tweet from back in of March of 2011, in which Jennifer Williams admits to having a set of keys to Penny’s house:
Penny Olay/Nia Crooks may be petty and shady for filing the police report, but at least we know she’s not lying. If this is scripted they covered their tracks as far back as March 2011. Now all we want to know is what happened?? What made Penny Olay turn on Jennifer Williams and jump on team Evelyn Lozada…
Last week, a video from New Birth Missionary Baptist Church went viral. Bishop Eddie Long, the church’s leader, underwent a ceremony that established him as a “king”. The ceremony was performed by visiting rabbi Ralph Messer, who instructed helpers to wrap Eddie Long in a Torah scroll, then lift and carry Long around the sanctuary.
*HARSH SIDE EYE*
You know, New Birth is becoming more and more “cult-like” to me, every time I hear about some foolery going down over there. And why he’s even still leading a church after the whole sex scandal and the congregation is still chillin in the cut is beyond me. But I digress…
According to CNN, after the video went viral, Long received a lot of backlash from the Jewish community and has since written an apology letter to the Anti-Defamation League, a Jewish group that fights against anti-Semitism.
“The ceremony was not my suggestion, nor was it my intent, to participate in any ritual that is offensive in any manner to the Jewish community, or any group. Furthermore, I sincerely denounce any action that depicts me as a King, for I am merely just a servant of the Lord,” Long wrote in a letter dated Saturday.
The entire ceremony is pretty questionable anyway, as other Rabbis have said that there is NO such “coronation” ceremony, that Ralph Messer is NOT an ordained rabbi and that the Torah scroll probably isn’t 312 years old. GIRL WHAT?!? So then why are…you know…nevermind. Just watch the hot mess of a ceremony for yourself, when you continue…
