The six-hour Surviving R. Kelly Lifetime docuseries will include over 50 interviews, including appearances from John Legend, R&B artist Sparkle, talk show host Wendy Williams and civil rights activist Tarana Burke.

The project will air in three installments: Thursday, January 3rd at 9 p.m. ET/PT; Friday, January 4th at 9 p.m. ET/PT; and Saturday, January 5th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.


People magazine has confirmed that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting their fourth child via surrogate…

Do YOU think this will be their last child or will they continue to procreate as long as a surrogate can help them?
