Things are really heating up on the presidential campaign in the great US of A. We have the inside scoop on the drama at the convention trail and more in this week's Twas Trending.


Power couple FLOTUS and POTUS Unite


Power couple FLOTUS and POTUS Michelle and Barack Obama, have been trending for their powerful speeches during the Democratic National Convention last week.

In their addresses to support presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama told the audience why they should vote for Hillary Clinton, calling out Donald Trump in the process for calling America weak, and trying to fix a country which is far from broken, "America is already strong. And I promise you, our strength, our greatness, does not depend on Donald Trump." But the master of orature has to go his wife, Michelle Obama, who pulled on the audience's heart strings of every parent in America. She also went on a journey down slavery lane, with the hopes that America will continue on its game changing path by making Clinton the first female President of the United States. She has left everyone saying, "When they go low we go high."


Who wore it better?


Congresswoman Joyce Beatty came out at the Democratic National Convention and in fine style throwing the 'shade' of the century wearing the $2,190 off-white Roksanda "Margot" dress that Melania Trump wore during her controversial speech last week. And boy did she rock it. She has one up on the former model, I guess she can take a page out of a black woman's book ... wait she has already done that.


And then there were three


Tami Chynn and Wayne Marshall have welcomed a new addition to their family - Atlas Levy Mitchell. While everyone was in congratulation mode for the happy couple on social media, many were wondering what is the story behind the name Atlas? That may need some exploring.


Rob and Chyna


Well speculations of a break-up are circulating on social media as Rob Kardashian has deleted pictures of Blac Chyna from his Instagram page. Allegedly this is something that he does frequently whenever they get into an argument. Chyna was still seen with her ring and sister in law Kim. However one thing we can say to Rob is grow up!


Keshia Knight Pulliam


We were all very excited to see that Rudy got married and she might have a happily ever after. That was until only seven months after her nuptials she was hit with a tornado of scandals. From divorce to cheating rumours and DNA tests, this shotgun relationship ended as quickly as it began. Unfortunately this fairy tale seemed to be turning out to be a nightmare.


Cricketer Andre Russell says I Do


Tallawah and West Indies Cricketer Andre Russell shocked fans when he posted a picture all deck out in a suit with a wife by his side. She still remains a mystery to many and some expressed the rushed nature in which he tied the knot in the middle of cricket season. That aside, congrats Andre!
