On the recent episode of Khloe Kardashian's show, the 31-year-old asked her guests, including singer Ne-Yo, to sound off on the controversial 2016 Oscars and their lack of diversity — and he used the opportunity to put Stacey,49, in her place.

“I take it back to just some of the dumb stuff that’s being said by people,” Ne-Yo said, then mentioning Stacey by her full name as a picture of her popped up on the screen. He mentioned that Stacey called for the elimination of things like BET, the Image Awards, and the NAACP, and then brought up a really great point about the 2015 BET Awards.

"Wait a minute. Sam Smith won a BET Award last year. Sam Smith is whiter than anybody in this room,” Ne-Yo explained, to which Khloe and her other guests nodded in agreement. “And secondly, we created BET because we couldn’t get on the other stations, not because we wanted to be segregated. Because we didn’t have a choice, that’s kind of what we do. When you ain’t gonna let us in, okay we’re gonna make our own, that’s how we do. It just aggravates me to hear her [say that].”

Wow, so well said, Ne-Yo! However, we bet Khloe didn’t expect her show to get so deep — and within the first ten minutes. The FYI network announced on Feb. 10 that they have added 15 more episodes to Kocktails With Khloe‘s first season! Now the show, which was originally only eight episodes, will run until June 2016.
