During a recent appearance on The Real, female hip hop group Salt-N-Pepa members Cheryl “Salt” James, and Sandra “Pepa” Denton took the opportunity to clarify the recent drama surrounding their Lifetime biopic, Salt-N-Pepa (which premiered on Jan. 23).

Last month, former third member DJ Spinderella (née Deidra Roper) claimed that she was “wrongfully excluded” from the movie.

“I reached out to Spinderella; I feel like this is very unfortunate,” James mentioned. “We’ve come to a crossroads where we have decided to agree to disagree. I definitely am open, and Pepa’s open. We’ve talked about it, and our hearts are open, have always been open to Spinderella.”

James then further explained to the co-hosts that there were more layers to the story than what people realize.

“As far as the public is concerned, I’m really happy about the people who know that they don’t know everything. There’s six sides to every story,” she said. “We just hope that we can come to some sort of resolution in the future. You never know. You never know what God is doing.”

Denton noted that both she and James reached out to Spinderella regarding a particular part of the movie.

“I just wanted to add to that, but I do want to clear up, there is a part that when Spinderella did say we excluded her. That part, Salt and I did reach out to consult with the movie,” Denton said.

She added that the purpose for creating the movie was to highlight “the friendship of Sandy and Cheryl back in college.”

“But yes, Spinderella joined us, a part of it. We will always acknowledge her contribution that she’s done with us. She will always be our sister,” Denton continued. “We love her, but we have always made sure that she had the opportunity and the platform. We always encourage her to be Spinderella and be supportive of her, so that is important.”

During they’re The Real appearance, James stated, “Perception is not reality.”

The pair’s response to the recent criticism comes two weeks after Spinderella took to Twitter to call out  the duo for not including her in “every aspect of development and production.”

“Sorry, but I gotta speak on this Lifetime special..” Spinderella tweeted.

“Too often, Black women who have made meaningful contributions in their industry are left out of historical narratives. Back when Salt n’ Pepa was building our legacy, which is rooted in empowering women, I could not have dreamed that this same group would one day disempower me.”

“Words cannot fully express my disappointment when I learned a decision was made to move forward with a Lifetime biopic that wrongfully excluded me from every aspect of development and production…all the while using my image throughout, given that I played an integral role in the group’s story and success,” she continued.

“I do, however, want to offer a huge congratulations to the talented actresses that represented us, including Monique Paul, who I wish would’ve been given an opportunity to share my true perspective with,” she said. “In reflection, I’m grateful I’ve managed to uphold a 30-year career of truly empowering women with my gift, against all odds. This will continue in my work and in my service.”

Woman Turns Capitol Rioter Ex-Boyfriend Into The FBI After He Called Her A “Moron”

A woman turned her ex-boyfriend into the FBI for storming the Capitol after he called her a “moron” via text message.

Richard Michetti may have gotten away with his role in the violent Capitol riot had he been a little nicer to his ex-girlfriend. Now, the Pennsylvania man is one of over 200 citizens facing charges for the January 6th riot.

In the arrest warrant, Michetti was arguing with his ex-girlfriend soon after the failed siege. The argument stemmed from him sending photos and videos from the riot to his ex, who remains unnamed. In the messages, Michetti insisted that the 2020 election had been rigged in favor of Joe Biden.

“If you can’t see the election was stolen you’re a moron,” Michetti wrote in the message.

The next day, the woman contacted federal authorities.

Also included in the arrest warrant are photos depicting the Trump supporter both inside and outside the Capitol on January 6th, as well as a hotel receipt confirming he was in Washington, D.C. on that day.

“We stormed the building, they held us back with spray and teargas and paintballs,” he confessed in one text.

Michetti was arraigned in court on Tuesday. His charges include knowingly entering a restricted building, violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and obstruction of Congress.

Chilling video captures the moment Lady Gaga’s dog walker was shot (Video)

Harrowing surveillance footage captured the moment when a dog walker for pop singer Lady Gaga was shot and two of her French bulldogs stolen.

The dog walker, identified by WENN.com Ryan Fischer, 30, was caring for the singer’s beloved dogs while she is away in Rome, Italy.

The video, obtained by TMZ, shows a man walking three dogs on a sidewalk late Wednesday night.

Then a white sedan, possibly a Nissan Altima or Sentra, pulled up alongside him and two men exited the backseat.

One suspect is heard yelling “You know what this is!” and “Give it up!” as Fischer screamed for help.

One of the dogs escaped while Fischer fought with the suspects who grabbed the other two dogs. One of the thugs shot Fischer in the chest before the suspects sped away with the two dogs.

Fischer fell to the ground, screaming “Help me! I’ve been shot!”

Police confirmed the dog walker was shot once in the chest — not four times as was previously reported.

Lady Gaga’s team confirmed to PEOPLE that Gaga “wanted” the surveillance video “to be seen to catch the shooter and recover her dogs.”

She offered $500,000 for the safe return of her pets.

Gaga is in Italy prepping to film her new movie “Gucci.” A source told “Entertainment Tonight” that she is “beside herself” and “is horrified that this happened.”

“Her dogs are her babies and she is completely devastated and sickened by this,” the source said, adding that the singer feels “helpless” because she is far away.
