A pot of trouble has been stewing and the ingredients are Bill Cosby, rape allegations and his legacy. The comedian recently canceled his scheduled appearances for the Queen Latifah Show and Late Night with David Letterman. Then Netflix postpones Mr. Cosby’s comedy special. Now TVLand has pulled the Cosby shows reruns from their production schedule.
Looks like it is going to be an end of an era. Do you think Mr. Huxtable did these things? These rape accusations have grown like a man on steroids over the past couple of weeks. However the rumors of rape have been lingering for decades.
I don’t want to believe that Mr. Cosby did it. But in today’s world I would not be surprised if it was true. You just never know anymore. I hope it is not true, but only time will tell I guess.
Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse co-star Tasha Smith plays an over zealous wife, who is ready to knock anybody out that stand in her way. Well it seems like Tasha Smith plays the crazy lover roles so well, because she has plenty of experience. Tasha’s husband Kieth Douglas has claimed that Tasha has threatened to kill him. Douglas states that Tasha gets intoxicated and abusive, he has even had to run away from her to protect himself. A judge has ordered Tasha to stay 2 yards away from her husband.
Tasha Smith has yet to commit on this matter.
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.
Music royalty Aretha Franklin had a tough time doing her morning press junket for her new album Aretha Franklin Sings the Great Diva Classic’s. The 72 year old singer had problems hearing the anchors which resulted in a delayed response. A YouTuber made a video of Miss Franklin’s press mishaps , check it out.
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.
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!
