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.
If you had a decent childhood, you parent let you watch Sesame Street either right before school or right after school. Well if you have ever had the chance to take a trip down to Sesame Street, you know the beloved store owner Maria. Well Maria is now moving off of the block after 44 years.Maria was played by Sonia Manzano. She started on Sesame Street when she was just a young 22 years old. Talk about job security. Manzano brought Maria to life and was we grew, Maria also grew up right before our eyes. Adios Maria you will be missed.
If you are going to continue your acting career after Sesame Street, please speak to the producers on Power and get the role of Angels’s Mother. She needs you in her life right now. Thank me later. :0)
I know by now you all know that Nene Leakes has announced that she will no longer be on the RHOA. Mrs. Leakes stated that it was a hard decision for her but its time to move on. Now I don’t know about you but I am not going to watch RHOA without Nene. How the hell could I? She was the show, no matter how many wives came and went, Nene stood her ground and demanded out attention. No one can replace her. Not even that devil with a twirl Kenya.
Well since the best housewife of the franchise is leaving I thought the world deserved an explanation. If I every had the chance to interview Nene she would probably answer like this………..
SO NENE WHY ARE YOU NOT JOINING THE LADIES FOR ANOTHER SEASON OF RHOA?
OK SO HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE LADIES?
REALLY? SO WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE SHOWS FUTURE?
AND THAT IT IS. DO YOU HAVE ANY LAST WORDS?
WELL NENE IT WAS A PLEASURE GIRL.

Oh and Kim and Kanye are expecting baby number two. Everyone is reporting that Kim used an IVF, but who cares. Anytime a woman bring a life into the world that is a blessing. North is going to be a big sister, yay.
Actor Chad Coleman is known for his role in The WIre and The Walking Dead. But when riding the subway train the actor had a moment of rage and the world is now acting like he is crazy. While riding the 4 train the actor over heard two white people a man and a woman conversing. The woman says where do we know him from, the man says we don’t know that n***er. In the midst of lots of racial tension in various cities due to the treatment of our black men. Using the N-word towards the opposite race will not be tolerated. So once Chad heard this he went off. I don’t blame him. The world is acting like just because this man is an actor he doesn’t have the right to have an opinion. Now when his white counterparts express their feelings on the subways they are cheered on by the media and fans. What’s up with the double standard. Just because a man works on The Walking Dead, it does not mean he is actually dead, dumb asses. I have seen this man many times on the subway and he does not bother a soul. He does not go out of his way to disguise himself, he wants to be treated the same as everyone else. As he should be. Chad I want to give you a round of applause for expressing yourself. Way to go!
There are lights, cameras and whole lot of action on the set of Empire. It looks like Boo Boo Kitty and Dre are an actual couple. Actress Grace Gealey and Trai Byers were smitten with each other from the time they met on set. The couple has tried to keep their romance out of the public eye, but when your on hit TV show it’s hard to hide anything that goes on in your life. It looks like Luscious and Cookie need to take a page from Trai and Grace’s love book.
While working at an elementary school as a media specialist, we did a project called I’ve Got The Blues TV, and our first show was why I left Hip Hop for the Blues. Coincidentally we did an interview with Bessie Smith and Queen Latifah. Two amazing students were acting as the singers of course. Our project was taped in a talk show format and my students asked the artists questions about their careers and why they chose their specific genres of music. The project was a hit , so when I saw that HBO was actually doing a Bessie Smith biopic with Queen Latifah starring as Bessie Smith I found myself overwhelmed with excitement. I really hope my former students will get a chance to see this biopic one day and remember our project. Unfortunately I can not post the project that I did with my students due to confidentiality agreements, but I can post the trailer to HBO’s new Biopic Bessie. Here it goes. Bessie debuts on May 16, 2015 on HBO.
