Oops, He Did It Again: Nick Cannon's Card Confusion Shakes Up Mother's Day

While many of us may have experienced minor mishaps or hiccups on Mother's Day, Nick Cannon's card mix-up over the holiday weekend stands out as quite the conundrum.

The renowned TV host and even more prolific father found himself in a sticky situation on Sunday when he accidentally mixed up handwritten cards intended for the six mothers of his 12 children.

During an episode of his radio show, aptly titled "The Daily Cannon," Cannon openly confessed his well-intentioned yet muddled gesture to his cohosts.

"I tried my best, I really did," Cannon admitted in a video shared on his Instagram page. "I thought it would be a great way to genuinely express one's feelings by putting them into words. And I was writing heartfelt messages by hand. But then, as I was crafting a handwritten message, I mixed up the cards. So, when one baby mama reads a card intended for another baby mama..."

The situation turned awkward, particularly since one of the show's cohosts, Abby De La Rosa, is among the mothers of Cannon's children. While De La Rosa maintained her composure, another show presenter, Courtney Bee Bledsoe, didn't let Cannon off the hook easily.

When the "Wild N' Out" host commented, "See, if I had just gotten some generic stuff that everyone else got, this wouldn't have happened."

Bledsoe retorted, "No, N—a! If you had just focused, this wouldn't have happened!"

For those curious about Cannon's ever-expanding family, here's a brief overview. The versatile host shares twins Moroccan and Monroe with Mariah Carey.

He also has twin boys Zion and Zillion, who are 19 months old, and a daughter Beautiful Zeppelin with De La Rosa.

Brittany Bell is the mother of his sons Rise Messiah and Golden Sagon, as well as his daughter Powerful Queen.

"Selling Sunset's" Bre Tiesi is the mother of his son Legendary Love, and LaNisha Cole is the mother of his daughter Onyx Ice.

Alyssa Scott recently gave birth to their daughter Halo Marie. She is also the mother of his late son Zen, who tragically passed away at five months due to brain cancer.

Jamie Foxx fans have been on an emotional rollercoaster in recent weeks as the Oscar and Grammy Award-winning actor, comedian, and singer was hospitalized due to an undisclosed medical issue while filming his latest movie, "Back in Action."

The news sparked an outpouring of concern, with friends and colleagues portraying a grave situation surrounding Foxx's hospitalization, leading to speculation about the condition of the "Ray" star.

However, on Friday, Foxx's daughter, Corinne Foxx, took to Instagram to provide an update, dispelling the rumors and offering reassurance. She confirmed that her father has made a steady recovery and is now back home.

"My Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickleball yesterday! Thanks for everyone's prayers and support!" she wrote, expressing gratitude for the well-wishes.

The positive news continued today as Foxx and Corinne, who previously worked together as host and house DJ respectively on "Beat Shazam," announced their latest project. The duo revealed their upcoming music-centric game show titled "We Are Family," which is scheduled to premiere on Fox in 2024.

"We are thrilled to be developing 'We Are Family' with Jeff Apploff and our friends at FOX Entertainment after the tremendous success of six seasons of 'Beat Shazam'," the duo said in a joint statement. "We hope this show brings as much fun to audiences at home as we've had creating it when it premieres next year."

"We Are Family" will feature non-famous relatives of celebrities performing duets with their hidden famous family members. The studio audience, consisting of 100 contestants, will have the opportunity to win up to $100,000 by correctly guessing the identities of the celebrity participants. The show will include a diverse range of celebrities from the music, sports and acting worlds. Foxx will also serve as an executive producer for the series.

Ice Cube's BIG3 League Makes International Push With 2023 London Championship

BIG3 Basketball has announced its postseason cities and dates for the 2023 season, which will include the return of the BIG3 All-Star Game and the league's first-ever European game.

The three-on-three professional basketball league, founded by rapper Ice Cube in 2017, has expanded to include more international events and is poised to attract an even bigger audience.
The BIG3 playoffs will take place in three cities across the United States, starting with the first round in Miami on August 12. The second round will be held in Dallas on August 19, and the championship game will be played in Chicago on September 2.
In addition to the playoffs, the BIG3 will host its All-Star Game in London on August 26, marking the league's first-ever game in Europe. Ice Cube hopes to attract British sports and music stars to the event, along with basketball legends such as Julius "Dr J" Erving and Clyde "the Glide" Drexler.

"We want it to be star-studded. We want it to be the place to be in London on August 26," Ice Cube said in an exclusive interview with The Sun. "Maybe the King might pop through and check it out, you never know!"

The BIG3 has grown in popularity in recent years, with a growing European presence and plans to expand even further. Ice Cube and his business partner Jeff Kwatinetz are currently in the process of selling BIG3 teams to outside investors, which will allow the league to pivot to a franchise model.

Ice Cube also hopes to create a World Cup-style event for the professional game, called the "Big Cup," where countries put their best players together to compete at the highest level. "Our dream is to see the BIG3 in most of the countries around the world playing hoops," he said.
