OK, so forgive me for not being up on my DVR’d BET but it looks like 106 & Park host Rocsi walked off the set Friday after Terrence berated her for almost an entire episode. Hm…Terrence is LUCKY I wasn’t up there. Jokes. for. days. Meanwhile Erykah Badu has rumoredly lashed out at people who are hating on her pregnancy by MC Jay Electronica. Plucked from her post called “Pregnant with Insults”:

HOW MANY OF YOU GREW UP IN 2 PARENT HOMES THAT WERE MISERABLE AS FUCK ?
OR 2 PARENT HOMES THAT WERE NOT PERFECT BUT WORKED?
HOW MANY GREW UP IN ONE PARENT HOMES WHERE THE MOTHER WORKED HARD TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE CARED FOR BUT SHE WASNT QUITE HAPPY?
HOW ABOUT A HOME WHERE THE FATHER WAS THE MAIN CARE GIVER AND DID THE BEST HE COULD -LACKING NURTURE?
HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE A SIBLING THAT HAS A DIFFERENT FATHER OR MOTHER?
DOES HE OR SHE MEAN LESS TO YOU?”
That’s alot happening…[YBF]
