Philly's own  Amber Rose and ex Wiz Khalifa can officially move on - the couple has reached a divorce settlement. And where did they celebrate? A strip club. Make it rain away the pain. TMZ.com reported that in the settlement, Amber gets $1 million thanks to the couple's prenup (of which Wiz still owes her $644,000). She also gets $14,800 a month in child support for their 3-year-old son, Sebastian "Bash" Taylor Thomaz . That's enough money for Tattle to call Amber "mommy.

Bobby: Whitney drugged at wedding I mean no disrespect, but Bobby Brown sure seems to be getting a kick out of raking up old stories - and not very flattering ones - about his late daughter and late ex-wife. In a clip from a 20/20 interview that was to run Tuesday, Brown recalled that he caught Whitney Houston on their wedding day, "hunched over a bureau, snorting a line of coke. " Drugs played a part in Houston's 2012 death, as they did in the death of their daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown , who died last year at 22. Bobby Brown, 47, followed up the ugly memory with a defense of Houston.

*  NURSE JACKIE . 9 p.m. Sunday, Showtime. Is there another show that's nailed the frustration of loving an addict more than this one? Sunday's series finale, "I Say a Little Prayer," isn't likely to find Jackie Peyton (Edie Falco) living happily ever after. Is it too much to hope, though, that she'll at some point be living one day at a time? *  HUMANS . 9 p.m. Sunday, AMC.

ISSUE | RACIAL PREJUDICE 'All lives matter' I love Grey's Anatomy star and Temple University alum Jesse Williams. And yes, his speech at the BET Awards was powerful and important ("BET Awards' exhortation that 'Black Lives Matter,' " Tuesday). He failed to mention, however, that there are many white men, women, and children who would and do rally to support the fact that all lives matter - including black lives. So while Williams makes valid, emotional, and powerful speeches, he should not lump all white people into one racial category.

THE BET Awards are the most casual of the awards shows (anything but black tie goes), the most self-promotional (rare was the presenter who didn't a push a TV show, movie or album) and the most sponsored. It seemed as if not a minute went by without seeing a logo or hearing a product placement. Strong on music (auto-tuning and backing tracks allowed) and spectacle, the BET Awards suffer from some of the same problem as the Grammys: In attempting to lure younger viewers, the show makes it seem as if there are no black entertainers over 40 - no singers who don't come out of rap and hip-hop.

ISSUE | RACIAL PREJUDICE 'All lives matter' misses the point When actor Jesse Williams made a moving speech at the BET Awards about systemic racism in our society and the deaths of so many unarmed black men across the country, I thought people of all races would try to let the knowledge soak in. The slogan "All lives matter," used in a letter Thursday, does not begin to touch on systemic racism in our culture. All it does is detract from a major and relevant issue that plagues this country in an attempt to highlight a class that has not been oppressed in our society.

NBC and Trump part ways Perennial presidential hopeless Donald Trump recently said a mouthful about Mexican immigrants: They are "bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some, I assume, are good people. " Well, the doors have come off the tricycle, to coin a unique phrase. Univision was first to say adiós : It will no longer run Trump's Miss Universe Pageant. Now, NBC (spooked, no doubt, by a 200,000-signature petition to dump Trump) says he's fired.
