Gospel Singer Israel Houghton Tells Follower to Stay Out of a Woman’s Uterus After He Criticizes Wife Adrienne Bailon For Not Getting Pregnant…

Hello World,

On Saturday, my husband and I celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary! I love him more now than I did when I married him on August 10, 2013. On our anniversary, we also attended the wedding of dear friends. And then on Sunday, we officially celebrated our anniversary since we had no other commitments other than church. It was a weekend bookended by love. My husband and I and our friends weren’t the only ones who celebrated our marriages this weekend. Gospel singer Israel Houghton and his wife Adrienne Bailon, who is a co-host on “The Real” also celebrated their third “askiversary” on Aug. 11.

Israel posted a beautiful Instagram message to commemorate this special date. See below…

That is sooo sweet that Israel and his wife Adrienne, in addition to their wedding anniversary, also honor the day that they proposed to one another! But one of Israel’s followers, instead of posting a congratulatory message or saying nothing at all, chose to question the fact that they have yet to have children together. See the rude post AND Israel’s response below…

I agree Israel…Don’t ask a woman about her age, her weight and the status of her uterus unless you know her like that. You don’t know if they have issues that prevent them from having a child or even if they have decided to not have children altogether. Either way, it’s their business to tell or not tell.  Lastly, I’m glad he found classy words to defend his wife as even he tells Tyson to find his own “good thing/wife.”

What say you?

DeVon Franklin to Produce Gospel Music Star Kirk Franklin Biopic, Asking For Suggestions For Who Should Play Kirk!

Hello World,

Kirk Franklin is one of my favorite gospel music artists of all time! His music, testimony and the way he lives out his faith has encouraged me despite the street preacher’s recent rebuke of Kirk Franklin outside of his Long Live Love tour performance in Jacksonville, Florida. (After the rebuke, Kirk met up with the street preacher to discuss their differences which is another reason why I think Kirk is a messenger from God. I’m not sure that other gospel artists would have engaged the street preacher in the same way particularly after the man condemned him to hell and wouldn’t even shake his hand after Kirk extended his hand in peace…)

Due to Kirk’s innovation, reach and longevity in the gospel music industry coupled with his inspiring life story, Kirk Franklin is a biopic in the making. That’s why I was excited to find out from Deadline that his life story will be brought to the silver screen! From Deadline:

EXCLUSIVESony is taking us to church with an upcoming biopic about multi-platinum gospel singer Kirk Franklin. The film, currently untitled, is being produced by former Sony exec DeVon Franklin via his Franklin Entertainment banner, while  Franklin will serve as an executive producer through his label Fo Yo Soul Entertainment.

Brian Ivie (The Drop Box ) has been tapped to write the film which will follow 14-time Grammy-winning artist from his humble beginning through his meteoric rise to fame as he changes the face of gospel music and battles his demons in the process. Ivie most recently wrote and directed the Emanuel, a documentary about the 2015 Charleston church mass shooting.

Via his Facebook page, DeVon is asking who should play Kirk in the biopic?!!

While they do favor, rapper Plies is not a candidate, DeVon says! LOL

They sure do look like though, right? Somebody suggested Kevin Hart. Well, they have their height in common although Kirk is reportedly one inch taller than Kevin at 5’5.

But via his Instragram page, Christian actor Jorel Quinn says he can do Kirk justice and I have to agree…
