Burying the hatchet?
Ex-lovers Vivica Foxand 50 Cent have come a long way since their 2015 beef during which the actress told the world that the “Candy Shop” rapper was gay. In a November 2015 Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen interview, Vivica responded to a 50 Cent comment regarding show ratings for Empire and the network dropping the second season due to “gay stuff.”
“The pot calling the kettle black is all I’m saying,” Vivica responded at the time. When host, Andy Cohen, asked her for clarification on the comment, she elaborated: “We had a great time [together], but he just seems like he’s got something that’s not quite clear.”
She then spoke about a Vibe cover, featuring a shirtless 50 Cent and >Soulja Boy, that made her begin to question his sexual preference. My, my, my, how things have changed…
The following month, 50 made an appearance on WWHL with Leah Remini. When questioned about his ex-girlfriend’s allegation, his response was not pretty. Shocking the WWHL Clubhouse, he says. “I literally said on Instagram, oh no! Because I let her lick my a**, she thinks I’m gay!”
He even went as far as to post a meme, making fun of the comment, to which Vivica responded with a meme of her own denying the accusation. Her’s read: “WHEN YA EX START RUNNING HIS MOUTH LIKE A B–CH HE START TO LOOK LIKE ONE,” and was captioned by the text, “Tell you what 50cent since you keep on telling that lie!! I challenge you to let’s both go on bravowwhl and we can put this to rest!! That NEVER happened and you know it QUEEN! But keep on telling them how u like it tho!! Let me know when u ready cause I am!! Part 2: Crazy how you 4got that u paid me to be in ya Video and went on the radio saying you did wrong by me! Boy oh boy when that VAULT opens up its gonna be good! I’ve got a great memory 50cent AKA #CurtisFox.
Fast forward two years later and it seems they have put their beef to rest. 50 appeared on WWHL on Tuesday, to promote his new BET show 50 Central. The 42-year-old, responded to questions, about the status of the beef between he and Vivica. “I just had her work with me on 50 Central,” said the Executive Producer.
Andy was in complete shock by his answer. “Oh, you’re kidding me, she’s going to be on 50 Central,” Andy asked. “Wow! Since you’re having ex-girlfriends on, will you have Chelsea Handler on?” the host joked.
The network has already acquired 24 episodes, of the 30 minute, late night variety show. Currently working on Power, the highest-rated show on Starz, the rapper is going a different route this time. Instead of the scripted roles we are used to seeing him in, we get to see him in a more candid element. Although 50 is rumored to be the main source of humor for the show, he will be joined by a team of comedians to round out the cast.
Also on the cast are:
Tristen Winger, known for his role as Thug Yoda on the HBO series, Insecure
Jasmin Brown, known for her social media Instagram videos as Toya Turnup, Termite and Reggie
Kiya Roberts, known for her unforgettable personalities on BET’s Hell Date
Vince Swann, a familiar face from The Xperiment, also on BET
Mark Harley (aka the token white boy), is an actor and writer. He can be seen in The Hungover Games, Clearing House Sweepstakes, and The Illegal Way
