Chris Brown will spend another month in jail after a judge said on March 17 that he was told the crooner made disturbing remarks in rehab about being good at using guns and knives.

Brown was arrested on March 14 after he was thrown out of a Malibu, Calif., facility, where he was receiving treatment for anger management, substance abuse and issues related to bipolar disorder. During a group session, Brown reportedly said, “I am good at using guns and knives,” in response to being asked what he excelled at.

Brown will remain in jail until a probation violation hearing, which is scheduled for April 23. While incarcerated, Brown will only be allowed one shower every two days. He is allowed to work out in his cell and can read library books.

Whoopi Goldberg can now add great-grandmother to her long list of accomplishments. The Oscar, Tony, Emmy and Grammy winner turned “The View” co-host announced on the ABC show that her 25-year-old granddaughter Amarah Dean gave birth to a baby girl, Charlie Rose, on March 15.

On Wednesday, March 12, the New York City Mission Society held the Champions for Children Gala at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, where Valentino D. Brown II, John U. Moorhead and Stanley H. Rumbough were in attendance.

All guests enjoyed a three-course dinner, followed by dancing in the Grand Ballroom, which was beautifully decorated with stunning floral arrangements in the society’s key colors of green and white, which had been generously donated by member Alix Astir of Trellis Fine Florals.

A silent auction was also held, where guests submitted bids to win numerous luxury items and experiences, including a four-night stay at the Round Hill Resort of Jamaica, as donated by the resort.

“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams debuted her new single, “Flatline.” The slow ballad is the first single from her upcoming EP.

The reality star says that she used her divorce from former NFL star Kordell Stewart as inspiration for the song. She worked on it throughout the “Housewives” season to tap into her emotions.

Said Williams: “It’s really kind of a documentary of everything that I went through to become who I am now.”

“Flatline” is now available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
