THIS IS GOING TO KNOCK YOU OUT: MIKE TYSON MYSTERIES

When you think of a cartoon series, do you every think of Mike Tyson? Me neither.

Well the saying the impossible is possible surely applies to this story. Former boxer Mike Tyson’s brand is now adding a cartoon to the mix. Adult Swim presents Mike Tyson’s Mysteries. Mike and hos team solve odd ball mysteries. It’s like the A-team but better. Mike team consist of a talking pigeon, his adopted Korean daughter and a ghost from a different time period. It makes no sense, but that the great thing about it. The story line is so bizarre. How could you not watch this?

In the trailer their is a scene where Mike sings a song called I ain’t got time for bird sex. With that being said I have to watch this show, seriously.

Also Mike Tyson has also expressed his interest in Jamie Fox playing him in the Mike Tyson Biopic. Jamie can definitely pull this off. Do it Jamie!!!!!

WHO AM I: RAPPER FINDS HIS ROOTS

Rapper Nas received more than he bargained for when he signed up to participate in the Henry Louis Gates TV series Finding Your Roots. Nas expected to find out things about his grandparents and that it, but when a 1859 bill of sale resurfaced Nas didn’t know how to react. Nas was presented with a bill of sale for his third great-grandmother Pocahontas to a Southern slaveholder.

 

In an interview with the NY Daily News Nas said that when he saw the bill of sale, he had to stop and deal with that for a moment. This is a sale of a human being. This was business here in this country.

The PBS series Finding Your Roots returns on September 23.

WHERE IS DETECTIVE BENSON WHEN YOU NEED HER: LAW & ORDER SVU ACTRESS FINDS DRAMA IN HER REAL LIFE

You have seen her on Law & Order SVU examining victims bodies so the detectives can catch the creep who created this crime.  Actress Tamara Tunie found herself in a bit of drama off the set. The established actress found herself a victim of a financial scam. Tunie’s former business manager stole $1.4 million from her in 2011. If I lose $5 I am super upset, so I can’t imagine what loosing $1.4 million feels like. After this devastating betrayal Tunie found a way to pick up the pieces.

Tamara is currently working on a new TV show called The Red Road. Tunie’s plays a mom who is dealing with her ex-con son’s issues after he is released from jail.The show is being taped in Georgia. Since Tunie is never around to enjoy her beautiful Harlem home she has decided to put her home up for sale. The asking price is a hefty $3.75 million. The sale of this home will help Tunie and her family recoup from the big loss they suffered.

Harlem has certainly changed over the years and I have no doubt that the actresses home will be sold sooner than later.

 

 

WHAT A COLLABO: NICK CANNON AND SYFY WORK TOGETHER

What does funny man Nick Cannon and the Syfy network have in common? Tough question right? Many would say nothing, until now. Syfy has joined forces with Nick Cannon’s Team NCredible to produce an improv comedy Syfy show.

The improv series will be tapped in front of a live studio audience. How are the going to make this happen. When I think of Syfy I think of green screens and lots of graphics. Nick Cannon isn’t a rookie at producing hit TV shows. His Wild n Out series is in it’s sixth season. If a show suck it usually doesn’t last six season. Nick is clearly the right man for the job.

Comedy on Syfy, this sounds so wild I have to check it out.

The new drama is about a racially charged trial that affects many people. King’s will play a religious woman who has come to help her brother navigate through this trial.

Well whoever said there aren’t any jobs in Hollywood clearly was mistaken. Congrats Regina!

 

WHEN IT GETS TO BE TOO MUCH: PHAEDRA NEEDS A BREAK

 

After her husbands criminal behavior has caused lots of unwanted attention, Phaedra might take a leave of absence for Real Housewives of Atlanta this season. Phaedra is a wife, a mother of two handsome boys, and attorney, a funeral director and a reality star. That’s a whole lot. Now her husband is going to be going to jail for a longtime. I can understand if she needs a break from it all. #fixitjesus #comebacknowyahhear

If our southern bell does happen to leave the show for a while, who will replace her? I think they should bring Sheree back, give her a chance. It really annoys me that Kim gets a spin-off and Sheree gets nothing. Put Sheree back on TV Andy Cohen.

SHE IS SO FANCY: IGGY AZALEA GETS A GIG WITH MTV

 Rapper Iggy Azalea has been getting a lot of flak from lots of spectators and her hip hop peers for not writing her own rhymes. Say what you will about the blonde bombshell, but while all of you are talking Iggy will be adding a new title to her resume. Iggy has been chosen to hot MTV’s House of Style.

Yes House of Style is coming back. I remember watching it when I was a kid and Cindy Crawford was the host. Reviving this show has not been easy, this is MTV’s second attempt at bringing it back. During this season on House of Style, Iggy will visit the best vintage stores in LA and some music video sets as well.

House of Style will premiere on August 4th on MTV.com

Can the fancy rapper pull this off?
