WHEN YOUR PAST CATCHES UP WITH YOU: BRANDY AND OPRAH FINALLY TALK ABOUT THE LIE

Do you remember when Brandy appeared on the Oprah Show and told Oprah that she was married and pregnant? Well I do. I was a senior in high school and I came straight home to watch that episode, just because Brandy was going to be on it. Otherwise I would have been hanging out at green acres mall.

Any who!

Brandy lied on that episode. The singer was not more married than Shug Avery on The Color Purple. Well the world soon found out that she lied when her baby daddy came out publicly and admitted to not being married. Brandy really has a great PR team, because that incident went away rather quickly and the world forgot. Hmmmm but not Oprah. So Brandy appeared on a recent episode of Oprah’s Where Are They Nowand Oprah got a chance to ask the singer why did she lie. Brandy tearfully answered mama Oprah. She said being pregnant without being married was a sin and shunned upon at that time. Check out the video below to hear more.

HOLD UP WAIT A MINUTE: HAS BASKETBALL WIVES BEEN CANCELLED

Do you remember how season 5 of Basketball Wives Miami ended? Let me give you a minute to think about it. HMMMMMMMMM! Nope I can’t either. Although I wasn’t watching Basketball Wives religiously, I figured something was up. There wasn’t a reunion show for that last season of Basketball Wives Miami. That is not common for a reality series not to air a reunion special and draw it out over the next couple of weeks, just to keep us watching.

Well someone tweeted Tami Roman and asked her is Basketball wives officially over in Miami. Here is what she said……………..

Well Tami doesn’t need to be on reality TV anyway, she now has a role on CBS Extant. She is rubbing elbows with Halle Berry. She no longer needs to throw punches with Shaunie O’neal Way to go Tami.

Tami on Extant

WHEN REALITY RUINS YOU: KARLIE REDD DENIED WORK BECAUSE OF LOVE AND HIP HOP

Love and Hip Hop Atlanta reality star Karlie Redd is currently upset with Tyler Perry. Karlie says that Tyler Perry does not want her in his movies. She has auditioned for a role in his movie and he said No Thank You. Tyler already gets enough crap for dressing as a black woman and acting crazy. He has come a long from the chitlin circuit. So I think we can all understand why he wants nothing to do with Karlie Crazy Redd. Her stint on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta has shown us that Karlie is a pretty face, and a brain going to waste. She also likes to like Yung Joc’s fingers. Girl sit down.

1,2,3 STEP: DID MAKSIM QUIT DANCING WITH THE STARS

Dancing With The Stars bad boy Maksim has announced on The View that he will not be returning to ABC’s Dancing With The Stars as a professional dancer. He said he loved the experience, but he thinks it’s time. Maksim finally won a trophy ball in on season 18 with his partner Meryl Davis. I guess getting out while your on top isn’t a bad thing.

Does this mean he will return as a judge in the future? I guess only time will tell. But rumor has it while Maksim is not dancing on the show, he will be keeping Jennifer Lopez company.

Oh Maksim you are a bad boy.

MUSIC TO MY EARS: DAFT PUNK ARE HEADED TO TV

Music geniuses Daft Punk are currently working on a BBC TV documentary. We really don’t know much about the music duo besides they make great music and they wear helmets. Their identities are pretty mysterious. The producers behind the documentary promises to give us an intimate view of Daft Punk’s artistic side.

No word on if the documentary will ever give us an up close and personal view of their personal lives. I highly doubt it thou. This group has gone through great lengths to keep their lives private. They freaking wear helmets. I would be totally surprised if they did on-camera interviews without their helmets. That is if they do any interviews at all.

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.
