Do you think Wendy will deliver? Or is the hot topic lady setting herself up for disaster? Now you know Wendy did a stand up comedy gig in Las Vegas at the Venetian. I searched the net and could not find one review on her show. No one talked about it in twitter. I don’t know if that’s good or bad. I guess only time will tell. Wendy is definitely working on building her empire. She is showing that she is more than just a hot topics lady. I just hope it’s not too much all at once.

 

DAMN IT I WENT TO THE VIEW ON THE WRONG DAY: DRAMA ON THE SET OF THE VIEW

Last Friday while standing on a long line to see a live taping of The View I was hoping I was going to see a wonderful show. Standing in the rain for an hour was a pain, but I would do anything for Whoopi. My BFF joined me and we made the best of it. When we were finally loaded inside we were greeted by some overly cheery staff members. For a second I thought I was at Disney World. We were given a bag of Chex mix popcorn and a bottle of apple juice. That popcorn was slamming!  Finally the show started and the ladies were great. Michael Strahan was a guest, which I still do not understand why. He was not promoting anything and he definitely didn’t tell us anything I didn’t know about him already. Well at least he looked nice, that man is handsome.  During the commercial break Rosie and Whoopi answered a few questions.  They were really cool. Anyway once the show was over I was telling my friend I like the chemistry the ladies have on the set. They seem to work well together.

So today when I heard that Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi had an argument in front of the audience during the commercial break, I said no way. No WAY DID THESE HEFFA’S ARGUE AND I WAS NOT THERE TO SEE IT SO I COULD REPORT IT TO ALL OF YOU IMMEDIATELY. So here is what happened.

Whoopi was cuing Rosie that they had to go to a commercial break. Whoopi wears an ear piece so she can hear what they are saying in the control room. Rosie refuses to wear one. So as I was saying Whoopi was telling Rosie that they had to go to a commercial break and Rosie was cut off immediately. Instead of letting it go, Rosie decided to talk about it during the commercial break. Rosie told Whoopi that her feelings were hurt. Whoopi said this is not the time to talk about this. Rosie insist on talking about it,  then Whoopi said  Fuck it. I told you to leave it alone and you just won’t listen. I’m really sick of your shit.

What does this mean for the future of The View?

AND THEY ARE BACK: WENDY EATS CROW, THE REAL GETS REAL AND THE VIEW GET A FACELIFT

Wendy Williams returned to her morning spot yesterday to dish on the latest hot topics and she also made good on eating the crow. Remember Wendy said she would eat crow, if Kim Kardashian and Kanye West stayed married for 73 days. Well Wendy’s big mouth really got her in trouble this time. The gossip queen had a chef prepare her some crow and she ate it in front of her live studio audience. Well Wendy next time you need to be quiet and you wont have to put things in your mouth.

The Real also returned for a whole season. The show premiered back in the summer and was green lit for a full season. The ladies of The Real are all so different, but they gel in a good way. On their premiere episode they had the sexy rapper The Game on the couch, the ladies feel that he is their good luck charm. Being that he was on the first episode of their summer test run. These ladies did not disappoint with their premiere episode. Lots of style, Lots of attitude, Lots of realness. Bravo Ladies!

All of the shuffling around at The View headquarters was well worth it. The View returned and received many views, their rating were the highest they have been in 8 years. The ladies started the show by kissing the wrinkle hand of Barbra Walters. It was cute and something I didn’t expect Barbra to partake in. The ladies then introduced themselves and the party began. The best part of the show was the Joan Rivers Tribute. Rosie O’Donnell was brought to tears and for a moment you felt like Joan Rivers was watching. The first day went out with a bang, but  the show now has competition from the new copy cat show The Real. Younger host and younger points of view. How long can the ladies of The View stay in the lead?

 

IT’S HANDLED: THE VIEW GETS TWO NEW CO-HOST

After all of the chatter and suspension on who would fill the last two seats on ABC’s The View. The network has announced that Rosie Perez and Nicole Wallace will join Whoopi and Rosie for the new and improved season of The View.

The 18th season of The View premieres September 15.

WHEN THE JOKES ON YOU: BET IN BIG TROUBLE OVER DISTASTEFUL JOKE

Karrueche Tran was a guest co-host on BET‘s 106&Park and in normal co-hosting fashion she read from a teleprompter. Well just when Karrueche thought she had everything down pact, she read a very distasteful joke about Beyonce and Jay-z‘s daughter Blue Ivy’s hair and the gates of to hell opened up.

During a segment called The Top 6 Things Blue Ivy Thought During The VMA’s , Karrueche says “I really did wake up like this, because my parents never comb my hair.” The 2 year old has been the butt of many hair jokes. There was even a petition created asking Beyonce to come Blue Ivy’s hair. (Which confirms how screwed up the world actually is.)Well needless to say, heads rolled over this ignorant joke. Since the airing of the show Karrueche has been getting death threats from Beyonce’s fans.

The President of music programming for BET Stephen Hill released a public statement, stating that it is not Karrueche’s fault she was just reading what a producer wrote. 106&Park is now on hiatus. There have been reports that a producer has been fired from the show for the unnecessary drama they have caused.

Bow Wow has stated that the show is on hiatus because he is taping for CSI. As we all know Bow Wow is one of the host for the music countdown show. We have seen plenty of  guest co-host come on and take over while the officials host are away doing other things. Show often take a hiatus but this is all too sudden. How convenient for BET to go on hiatus in the midst of a PR crisis.

TELL THE TRUTH CNN: TALIB KWELI GIVES DON LEMON A PIECE OF HIS MIND

Tensions continue to rise in Ferguson Missouri after the slaying of the unarmed black teen Mike Brown. CNN has been on the scene since day one. You would think their reports would be somewhat accurate right? Well rapper and activist Talib Kweli begs to differ. During an interview Don Lemon and Talib’s conversation gets ugly.

When Talib challenged the authenticity of CNN’s reports on an event the rapper actually attended. Don tries to interject the rappers damaging comments about the network. These two grown men then remembered why they were in Ferguson in the first place and resolved the issue. The argument ended with laughs and that folks is how you get out of a bad situation.

IN THE RUNNING: ESPN ANCHOR MAY JOIN THE VIEW

Sherri is out! Whoopi is in! Jenny is out! Rosie is in! Sounds like a game of musical chairs. The View‘s next season is expected to change the morning talk show game. The producer of the Rachel Maddow show Bill Wolff will takeover for Bill Geddie. Yes with all of the hoopla over Barbra, Jenny and Sherri leaving the show, no one cared to notice that Bill was retiring from the show as well.

With all of these changes comes tons of rumors. Here’s the latest. Rumor has it that ESPN’s Sage Steele just might be added to the round table. Sage has been a guest co-host on the show before. Test shows are being done to see how the chemistry is on stage with all of the prospective co-host. There was also a rumor going around saying that Whoopi was not pleasant to work with on set and she called Barbra a “cranky 85-year-old woman”. ABC disputed this rumor and is disgusted by the thought of anyone saying Whoopi would do such a thing. In an interview with TheWrap an ABC spokes persons said “Whoopi is a consummate professional and has an enormous amount of respect for Barbara with whom she has a professional and personal relationship.  Unless you were there and heard it first hand, this is nothing more than mean and hurtful rumor.”

Do you think Sage has what it takes to rub elbows with Rosie and Whoopi?
