Social media is still reeling from Vivica A. Fox’s appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” Sunday night, when she insinuated on live television that her ex-boyfriend 50 Cent is gay.
In case you missed it, host Andy Cohen asked Viv if she had any comment regarding 50’s opinion of “Empire” losing ratings over too much “gay stuff.”
“First of all, you know the pot called the kettle black is all I’m saying,” Vivica responded.
“Whoa,” said fellow guest Kandi Burruss in the brief silence that followed. (Kandi’s baby in her pregnant belly was probably thrown as well.)
“That was some tea! That was shade. That was major shade,” Kandi said with a scrunched face.
Andy asked Vivica to clarify her suggestion. “You’re not insinuating that…”
“That he’s gay?” Kandi asked, cutting to the chase.
Vivica coyly smoothed out her long red weave and let her silence speak for itself.
The actress did eventually answer the question, saying “he’s not” gay, but added, “He just seems like he’s got something that’s not quite clear.”
She said a Vibe cover with 50 and Soulja Boy caused her to side-eye his sexuality. Twitter Googled it immediately to find out it was actually this XXL cover from November 2010.
As the show was ending, Andy said he heard from 50’s publicist who clarified that his client was simply sharing a post (from @industryonblast_) that claimed “Empire’s” ratings dropped because of too many celebrity cameos and “gay” plots. 50’s rep told Andy that the rapper deleted the post once he saw the homophobic comments attached to it, and that they were “not a reflection of his views at all.”
Within an hour of the show ending, both Soulja Boy and 50 had responded to the explosion of tweets generated from Vivica’s comments.
50 posted a picture of her on Instagram with the caption: “Oh No!!! Now she thinks I’m gay because I let her lick my Ass. LMAO Wait, I didn’t want her to, she forced me, my hands were tied. 50 Shades of Grey.
Soulja Boy added, “Everybody hit up this cougar…she’s single & ready to mingle …1-800-GrannyDesperateForAttention extension I’mWashedUp.”
And then 50 continued to drag Vivica the rest of the night:
