WAS THIS NECESSARY: DRUMLINE: NEW BEAT REVIEW

I took some time to watch Vh1‘s Drumline: A New Beat and I must say I hated it. Drumline the movie is still 10 times better than the sequel. Although the TV version movie featured some of the movies cast members, there roles were just flat. Nick Cannon came into the movie with this lets get this over with attitude. Leonard Robert’s (Where the hell has he been) who played Sean Taylor the egotistical band-member returns as the bands director. He quarrels with his brother who is also the band director of a rival university. What a crappy story line? Drumline: A New Beat also features Alexandra Shipp played Dani a college freshman with her eye on hitting the field with the A&T University band. Dani defies her parents and attends A&T instead of going to Spellman College. On campus the little drummer girl finds love and drama and blah blah blah. The story line was so predictable and disappointing. IT WAS JUST WACK. I felt like I wasted 2 hours of my life. This makes me wonder if I should even watch Lifetime’s Aaliyah movie. Alexandra Shipp will play the late great R&B songstress and if her acting is anything like it was in Drumline I will be highly disappointed.

The only good thing I will say about this terrible movie is………………………. it created jobs for people. All of the crew and vendors that  were able to earn some cash, all of the D-list celebrities who needed work and all of the interns that were used, I am happy you had the opportunity. Unfortunately we can’t all work on award worth productions (Trust me I know), but hopefully the experience will change your lives in a positive way.

FROM 7TH HEAVEN STRAIGHT TO HELL: TV DADS SECRETS EXPOSED

Boy oh boy you never know what a person is capable of doing to someone else. TV Dad Stephen Collin’s warmed our hearts as the caring dad on 7th Heaven. Sadly Collin’s will no longer be know for his exceptional acting. Far more sinister acts will tarnish his career. The actor admitted to his wife and therapist that he is a child molester . Collin’s says he took advantage of under age girls several times. The girls ages range from 11 years old to 14 years old.

Collin’s can be heard on a audio recording admitting to molesting girls in the LA and NY areas. The actor believed that he was talking in a confidential setting, but this therapy session was actually taped. In California it is legal to tape a therapy session with out all parties knowing that you are doing so.  The NYPD is currently investigating Collin’s and has already flown to LA to interview Collin’s estranged wife actress Faye Grant.

Since the releasing of the tape Collins has been fired from Ted 2, and has lost his seat on the National Board of the Screen Actor’s Guild.

MY FINAL THOUGHT: The tape was created in 2012. We are now in 2014, I am not sure why we are hearing about this now. All of the victims of this crime should have been given some form of justice 2 years ago. Although Collin’s has been exposed, his victims have to relive this tragedy all over again. TMZ released the taped of the therapy session and they have protected the victims by not sharing their names. I just hope everyone else follows TMZ’s lead and continues to protect the victims. Collin’s is going to be dealt with in a proper matter, we don’t have to victimize the victims just to tell the story.

RUMOR CONTROL: IS THE MARTIN SHOW COMING BACK FOR 2015?

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!

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?

I GUESS THEY DON’T CARE IF YOU ARE ON THE RUN: BEYONCE AND JAY-Z SPECIAL DRAWS IS LOW RATINGS

After all of the hoopla over the On The Run Special airing on HBO, a lot of you didn’t even watch it. I must admit, I did not watch the special either. Only because I switched my HBO for Showtime so I can catch up on my Californication . I was not going to pay for 2 premium channels. Sorry honey I don’t get paid to blog. I blog because I love talking about TV. Enough about me, lets get back to Jay and Bey. Also I saw most of the tour on Youtube in bits and pieces. The power couple should not panic. Their empire is still strong. Let this be a lesson to the both of them, they just are not going to turn everything they touch to gold. Better luck next time.

 

WE NEED YOUR HELP: WE WANT GANG RELATED BACK

FACEBOOK

I reported earlier this month that FOX cancelled their new drama series Gang Related. I also stated that this was a bad idea. Well I am not alone. A group of fans have been voicing their opinion on this matter. I WANT GANG RELATED BACK. THEY WANT GANG RELATED BACK. WE WANT GANG RELATED BACK. Are the chants I hear in my head as I read each post from a Gang Related fan.

There is so much of the story left to tell. Is Javier dead? Will Chapel go after Lopez for the murder of his daughter Jessica? Will Lopez bring down the whole Acosta establishment? IS the Acosta  business doomed, because the brother Daniel and Carlos will soon go to war with each other? Come on FOX get your stuff together and green light this show for the next 3 seasons. Damn it does Vee have HIV? Will Kim continue to be bribed by the chinese gang or will he let all of his secrets out and sacrifice his sister while doing so? I have more questions for you FOX!!!!! Why are you doing this to us? You can not produce a phenomenal story and then take it away. Not cool at all. BRING BACK GANG RELATED NOW!!!!!
