This week on 'Twas Trending, we are blaming Billy Bush, booing Trump and feeling embarrassed for the seasoning that was definitely put in the wrong pot. Here is what was trending this week.




Well, many have wondered what was up with Melania Trump during the recent sexual-assault scandal against her husband - Donald. She has resurfaced and 'clarified' that her husband's comments on the Access Hollywood bus was all Billy Bush's fault. She blamed Billy Bush for the unfortunate incident, which many found to be a stretch. The hashtag #BillyBushMadeMeDoIt has been trending ever since she made the comments in an interview with Anderson Cooper. Poor Billy Bush - just for doing his job.


Wrong Spice for the pot


Many could not help but feel embarrassed for Spice as she got a very cold reception during her performance at the Rio Sports Gala and Awards ceremony last Saturday night. Many are split down the middle as to who is at fault. Is it the organisers for putting her after gospel artist Kevin Downswell, or for booking her at all?

Then there are those that think that she is a one-dimensional flavour and should have known that maybe this was a gig at which she should have tuned down her lyrics and outfit. Many on social media are even saying that even her 'Rampin' Shop' collaborator Vybz Kartel would have tweaked his performance to match the crowd he was playing to. But who knows? Maybe #BillyBushmadeherdoit.


Booed By Priests?


Donald Trump has made a new milestone, as he is allegedly the first presidential candidate to be booed at the Al Smith Dinner during his presentation during the roast segment of the dinner. I guess those in the room just didn't find his joke funny. Maybe



Bromance Over!


There is never a dull moment with Kanye West. He went off on Jay-Z at his recent concert, claiming that Jay-Z never even visited him after Kim's ordeal. He admitted that he called but that was not enough for Kanye. I guess Kanye has made his way through his enemies so he has now decided to bite the hand that fed him. I am sure Jay-Z ain't losing a dollar or a night's sleep over this.
