The Lifetime network has found a way to stay relevant by producing authorized and unauthorized biopics of our favorite artists and former sitcom casts. Well after watching the Save By Bell Unauthorized story I said I was done with Lifetime and their nonsense. However I may need to bite those words and tune in when the Toni Braxton Biopic airs. Why you ask? Well because Toni Braxton will executive produce this project and she will also appear in it. No one can tell your story like you can. So I am pretty excited to see that Toni has grab control of this project. Toni has endured pain and heartache on many levels. From bankruptcy to battling a disease. I am assuming she will not let Lifetime make a spectacle out of her journey. Word of advice Toni, please get the casting right and do not cast any of your sisters ok girl.
Rapper and Actor 50 cent has found himself in front of another lawsuit. However this one is totally bogus. 50 is being sued by an author named Larry Johnson. Mr. Johnson is claiming that the rapper stole his idea, he claims to be the real creator of Power. Larry claims that he submitted his manuscript “Tribulation of a Ghetto Kid” to a Nikki Turner. Mrs. Turner is an employee for G-Unit books. I had no clue that such a company existed, lol. Anyway Johnson says Power was his idea not 50’s. Listen to this, lol. The author Mr. Johnson claims that his manuscript includes two drug dealers with goatees, lol. You can not make this stuff up. He also goes on to say that the drug dealers in his book were working on becoming legitimate business men. So he is suing 50 cent for $200 Million Dollars. What a bunch of B.S.!!!!!!
I’m not sure where Mr. Johnson’s has been in the last 20 year, but almost ever story involving a drug dealer has the same story-line. Drug dealer gets rich, drug dealer gets arrested, drug dealer wants to be a legitimate business man. It just happened that Power is equipped with some of today’s greatest writers and they are really good at creating drama on paper and making it come to life. Also Mr.Johnson must not be reading the credits for the show. 50 cent is an EP for the show, he is not the creator of the show. Do you really think this man could come up with this kind of show (no offense). I think it is really disrespectful to the creator of the show to come up with such rhetoric. Power is an exceptional show that 50 cent just has been blessed to be apart of. I really do not think that this lawsuit will go anywhere.
But this just might be a little sprinkle of Karma for the rapper. Get Rich or Die Trying right?

Vivica A Fox just announced today that she will also be on the Empire train this season . The actress was cast as Cookie’s older sister. It seem like Cookie’s rough ways might be hereditary. If you thought Cookie was bad wait till you meet her older sister. Vivica will likely debut the role in the 8th episode of this season. Lol I know her former beau (50 cent) is going to have something to say about that. Now i am not sure what that means for Cookie’s other sister Carol who is played by Tasha Smith. Tasha also plays 50’s babies mother in Starz’s Power as well. I hope the silly feud 50 cent has in his head will not interfere with Tasha’s roles or her coins. (Hmmm I will look into this more.)
Check out the trailer below y’all. I can’t wait to get back into the Lyon’s den.
WE TV has a new project up their sleeves. They have come a long way from their bridezilla days. The network has just ordered a docu-series “Growing Up Hip Hop”. The series will consist of 6 episodes. The offspring of hip hop legends Rev Run, JMJ, Damon Dash, Master P, Treach and Salt (of Salt and Peppa) and James Debarge will all appear in the series. We will see these lucky kids try to make a name for themselves. Which can be pretty had when your parent is a superstar. Check out the preview below. I think I will definitely be watching this one.
It seems like Dancing With the Stars just wrapped their 20th season. Time flies huh? Season 21 of Dancing of the Stars premieres on Monday September 14, 2015. The cast has been chosen and they are ready to go. This season we will have the pleasure of seeing the following celebrities dance……….
Carlos and Alexa Penavega (first married couple to compete)
I will be watching. I sure hope Tamar doesn’t get voted off first. You never know with this show.
The View has had it’s up and downs. Many women have sat around the hot topics table, but only one has stayed. Whoopi Goldberg aka Mama View will be back for Season 19 of The View. Whoopi will be joined by veteran host Joy Behar ( girl we missed you), America‘s own Danny Tanner aka Candace Cameron, funny lady Michelle, GMA‘s Paula Faris (don’t know much about her, but welcome) and the very outspoken Raven Symone. Well damn that’s an awesome line-up. Im pretty sure there will be lots of drama on the set this year. Candace has already gotten into with Raven over gay marriage. I hope Joy and Whoopi can keep these gals in line. September 8, 2015 the new seasons begins. I can’t wait.
So the very outspoken talk show host Wendy Williams pissed off a whole bunch of folks when she said that Ariana Grande will forever looks like she is twelve. Ariana’s fans are outraged and started the #cancelwendywilliamsshow movement. The popstars fans believe that Wendy is body shaming and they want her to stop.
But hold up you millenial Ariana Grande fans, PUMP YOUR BREAKS! Wendy Williams will remain on the air, you know why? Because Wendy’s entire career is based on hard hitting gossip, that we love. (You know you love it) Sometimes Wendy can be very foul, but we can’t whine and bitch about it. Really just knock it off. All of this nonsense is uncalled for, where was the #Arianagrandeisnasty for licking donuts at a bakery and not purchasing them. Also the episode where Wendy said Ariana looks twelve years old aired in April. So you guys are too little too late.
