Word On The Curb: Central Park 5 Prosecutor Elizabeth Lederer Resigns From Columbia Law, Tamar Braxton Announces New Show, Cassie Is Pregnant


…after pressure from black students. Lederer, the former Assistant D.A. who tried the case back in 1989, resigned Wednesday. She was a part-time professor at Columbia but had come under fire since the Netflix series “When They See Us” debuted.

Lederer worked alongside Linda Fairstein, who has also caught flak and recently resigned from a nonprofit board of directors and the Board of Trustees at Vassar College. Her book publisher also dropped her.

The Black Law Students Association at Columbia called Lederer’s actions in the CP5 case “racist” … and pressured school administrators to remove her from the faculty.

So, essentially, Lederer fell on the sword.

Tamar Braxton Announces new show

Tamar Braxton has inked yet another TV show! But it’s not the talk show with Steve Harvey’s production company that we’ve been waiting for. Remember Steve offered Tamar her own show right after she was fired from The Real. Tamar said for contractual reasons, they couldn’t get her network (WeTV) to agreed to it. We don’t have many details other than the show will be on VH1 and got picked up for 20 episodes
