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.
IT’S TIME: Longtime E! news anchor Giuliana Rancic has decided to step away from her post, to pursue other ventures. The entertainment journalist has had a very tough year after facing tons of criticsm for her comment about Zendaya‘s hair, to the loss of her child via surrogate. Rancic reports the drama in celebrities lives, but it seems the tables have somewhat turned. Various E! have tweeted about Rancic’s weight, questioning why she is so skinny. Then many wondered if she was going to get the boot once Maria Menounos joined the network. Well Giuliana has decided now is the time to move one from the weekly E! News programs. She will remain co-host of Fashion Police and the E! Red Carpet specials. Guiliana will also work on her wine and clothing lines, and she will be executive producing a show for the Oxygen titled Rich in Faith.
FINALLY: The Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger has decided to leave the longtime Bravo show Millionaire Matchmaker. Eight seasons was enough for this lady and she is now moving on to new opportunities on a new network. Bravo wishes Patti well in all of her future endeavors. I’m pretty sure the crew was happy to see Patti go, rumor has it she is not so nice to work with.
DAMN IT: So now that the daytime talk show The View is doing good in ratings, the producers have decided to shake it up even more. A producer is often seen as a villian, but they know when to get rid of the dead weight and when to bring in the fresh meat. Whoopi Goldberg announced that Raven Simone was joining The View full time. There are not that many seats around the table, so if you are not doing your part they will kick you too the curb to make room for someone else. #itsbusinesspeopleneverpersonal The producers did not believe that Nicole and Rosie voiced their opinion enough during hot topics. As we know Hot Topics is the meat and potatoes of the show, if they lose viewers during that first segment they are gone for good. Im so sad to see Rosie Perez go, but Nicole BYE GIRL.
It looks like The View‘s future has gotten a whole lot brighter. After the shake-up in the cast earlier this season, ratings were dropping. I mean the producers were trying their hardest to keep the same spunk the show had in previous seasons. Along with Whoppi and 3 other co-host the rating still were not doing s well as they would have liked. After Rosie O’Donell;s second departure from the show, the producers were playing a game of musical chairs with multiple guest co-host. Well honey when Raven hit the stage and opened up her mouth it was all over. Almost every episode Raven appeared on she happened to say things that may have offended people or made heir jaws drop. Raven’s outspoken behavior breaks all Huxtable kid stereotypes. Today June 10, 2015 Whoopi Goldberg annoucned that Raven is now a full-time co-host on the daytime talkshow. Bravo!!!!!! This is a great move for the show and I will always tune in now. I look forward to hearing Whoopi, the republican lady, the original Puerto Rican princess and Raven the rebel speak on everything that is worth talking about. I smell an Emmy coming soon.
The word on the street is that Martin Lawrence‘s hit TV show Martin might be revived. The alleged new version of the series will not feature Tisha Campbell though. The singer Ashanti will play Gina Waters. I know the news makes you scratch your head or make the Scooby Doo face. How in the hell is this going to work. All of the characters has since aged, adding Ashanti makes no sense at all. Well folks stop your worrying because Martin will not be revived, the folks over at thenewsnerd.com made the whole thing up. In the words of Martin Lawrence Damn! Damn! Damn!
FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show just added the legendary Patti Labelle to the cast. I think I am going to cry. The producers over there at AHS are freaking geniuses. Patti will appear in 4 episodes and her character will not be singing. Sorry to burst your bubble. Patti will play Gabourey Sidibe‘s mother. He character will shed some light on the murderous Twisty the clown killer. Oh this is going to be good.
With the latest update I am assuming they have not finished taping the new season yet. Please hurry up FX. I must see this.
We will always know him as a Cosby kid, although he is obviously a grown man. Malcolm Jamal Warner is still at it, he will join the final season of Sons of Anarchy. Malcom is going to play a guy named Sticky, who happens to be apart of the Grim Bastards.
Sons of Anarchy will premiere on September 9th.
Fun Fact: Malcolm recently did an interview with Access Hollywood Live and revealed that he had a crush on his cast mate Lisa Bonet. She played his sister Denise.
UPDATE: NETFLIX HAS CONFIRMED THAT TANISHA THOMAS WILL NOT BE APART OF ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK. IT WAS A LIE. #REALLYGIRL
Brooklyn stuand up! Reality star Tanisha Thomas just finished marriage boot camp and now she is headed to jail. Just kidding, but she will be joining the Netflix hit Orange is the New Black. Tanisha made the announcement over the weekend on instagram.
I guess nobody will be getting any sleep at the Litchfield Correctional Facility.
