You have seen her on Law & Order SVU examining victims bodies so the detectives can catch the creep who created this crime. Actress Tamara Tunie found herself in a bit of drama off the set. The established actress found herself a victim of a financial scam. Tunie’s former business manager stole $1.4 million from her in 2011. If I lose $5 I am super upset, so I can’t imagine what loosing $1.4 million feels like. After this devastating betrayal Tunie found a way to pick up the pieces.
Tamara is currently working on a new TV show called The Red Road. Tunie’s plays a mom who is dealing with her ex-con son’s issues after he is released from jail.The show is being taped in Georgia. Since Tunie is never around to enjoy her beautiful Harlem home she has decided to put her home up for sale. The asking price is a hefty $3.75 million. The sale of this home will help Tunie and her family recoup from the big loss they suffered.
Harlem has certainly changed over the years and I have no doubt that the actresses home will be sold sooner than later.
What the french toast!? Actress Shannon Guess Richardson has been sentenced to 18 years in prison. Richardson has minor parts in the hit show Walking Dead. It has been determined that Richardson had indeed sent ricin-laced letters to President Obama and former NY Mayor Bloomberg. As if that wasn’t weird enough in the letters there were texts that said…….. You will have to kill me and my family before you get my guns. The right to bear arms is my God given constitutional right.
The actress committed this dumb and dangerous crime in 2013. When she was arrested her husband filed for divorce. Richardson tried to frame her husband. She claimed he was the one who sent those letters and she even went so far to set up dummy accounts in his name. What a psycho?
The ricin-laced letter’s never reached her intended targets, but it has still done harm to others. The ones who have been harmed by this whole ordeal are Richardson’s six children.
Now she will spend 18 years behind bars. #SMDH
I guess it’s out with the old and in with the new at FOX Sports. Veteran sportscaster Pam Oliver has been demoted and replaced by Erin Andrews for this coming football season. Just call Erin Mrs. Getouttheway, because she has the power to take ones job. First she snatches up Brooke Burke‘s co-host position with Dancing with the Stars and now Pam’s job. Why is Erin is such high demand? Who is she? I had no clue who she was until she appeared on Dancing with the Stars.
Pam is not too happy about ending her time as the sideline reporter. She really had plans for her 20th year on the field, although it’s over, her time with FOX Sports is not. Pam will be working on other productions for the network.
After giving FOX Sports almost 20 years, I hope the execs at FOX show Pam how much they appreciate her. Their producers better be planning an anniversary special. She deserves it. How many women last that long in a male dominated industry, such as sports broadcasting?
I am now a believer of the Wendy Williams Spidey Sense. Wendy can smell drama and shade. On the R&B Divas reunion, Wendy hinted at the their being trouble in paradise for the R&B Diva Angie Stone and her beau/manager Ashanti.
Apparently Ashanti has been cheating and it just might be with multiple women. But a particular staff member for the TV One Franchise is being called the side chick. According to MadameNoire the staff was aware of Ashanti’s infidelities, but they are not sure if it was with a staff member.
The TV biz is very small behind the scenes, right now the production team is protecting this particular staff member, but loyalty is not a worried that is often used on any TV set. It is a matter of time before someone gives this lady up, to the tabloids.
Not everybody can be Todd Tucker and marry a star of the show. I hope Angie finds peace and a better manager, because she is not where she should be in her career. I also hope that this staff member is being falsely accused, because this is a tough business. When one women is labeled as home-wrecker, it makes it hard for the women that are busting their behinds to stay in this business.
I guess Angie really did quit the show then. What do you think?
As we all expected the Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star Apollo Nida is going to jail, for the illegal activity he engaged in off the camera. What does this mean for the franchise? Well nothing, the show must go on. Sadly Apollo is just one person they do not have to cut a pay check for. If he actually get pays in the first place.
Unfortunately Apollo will be away in jail for 8 years. His children with is wife Phaedra will be pre-teens when he gets out. I am not sure if the RHOA franchise will last that long, but i surely hope it does. I want the world to see Phaedra Parks bounce back form this.
There have been reports that Phaedra has really been unbothered by Apollo’s legal troubles. What we do know is that Phaedra has signed her contract with BRAVO and she will be back for another season. Yay! Oh and that Kenya Moore has already expressed her views on Apollo’s sentencing.
Comedian Joan River’s is currently promoting her new book Diary of a Mad Diva, during her interview on CNN Joan had enough and left. The anchor said that Joan was mean in her comedy adn Joan said its not mean it’s funny. Life is tough , so if you can make someone laugh your giving them a little vacation. The anchor smiled and nodded her head and went on to the next question. I see your wearing fur on the cover, what about PETA. Joan says are your shoes leather. The anchor replies yes. THEN SHUT-UP says Joan. The comedian believed the interview was very negative and walked off camera.
The anchors name is Fredericka Whitfield, and I did not know who she was until now. So this little moment with Joan has made this Fredericka a household name for now.
Take a look at the interview.
There is a saying that god will not give you more than you can handle. Hmmmm. When I see situations like Sherri Shepherds I wonder if those words have any meaning.
First Sherri’s estranged husband Sal files for divorce.Then Sal joins forces with and Sherri’s first husband (Jeffery’s father) and publicly bash her with accusations that she is a bad mother.
Second Sherri and The View are parting ways, which I don’t think is a bad thing. Sherri’s career will survive after The View. Although she has been there for a longtime, I’m pretty sure her departure from the show is bitter sweet for her. She obviously needs a break but of course it’s probably not easy to just walk away and not know what the future holds for you.
Now Sal wants child support for the surrogate child that has not been born yet. Sherri does not want custody of the child and does not want to pay child support for a kid that is not biologically hers. The child was created with Sal’s sperm and the surrogates mother’s egg. Sherri tried many times and could not get pregnant.
Also since being married Sal has not had a job, he has been living off of Sherri that whole time. Things that make you go hmmmmmmm. Sal came off as this ambitious tv industry guy, but turns out he is just a bum. Sal filed for divorce in California because they recognize surrogacy agreements. Sherri filed for divorce in New Jersey and they do not recognize surrogacy agreements. Lots of drama and this is only the beginning of the fight. The surrogate baby is due this month.
When Sherri gets through this storm I hope she can find a lot of things to laugh about.You never know she may make a who stand-up comedy routine about this whole ordeal.
The legendary director Spike Lee appeared on Bloomberg News and the opening of the segment rubbed him the wrong way. Do the right thing says the TV host. Why is Spike Lee using Kickstater to fund his film, when he has tons of money she implies. Well the educated Spike Lee decided to use his six minuted on the air to scold the uninformed TV host about her comments. Why would you open up like that asked Spike. Come on you know we are all about controversy here says the host.
If it is controversy they want, they definitely got it. Not cool Bloomberg News.
Social Media gives everyone the opportunity to express themselves, some really take it to the extreme with their expressions. TV host of the Travel Channels Man V. Food Adam Richman went on an angry rant on Instagram and now he is paying for it. Richman began using the hashtag #thinspiration and many followers were outraged. The followers believed that #thinspiration promotes bulima and anorexia. Richman highly disagreed. Being that Richman has lost 70 pound while hosting these food shows, so of course he felt that this was a great accomplishment. Losing weight when your job is to eat a lot is truly amazing. Sharing his transformation was supposed to be inspiring.
Here is where things went terribly wrong. Multiple followers voiced their opinions on #thinspiration which is a term used for pro-bulimic and pro-anorexic groups. I am not sure if Adam knew this, but all of the negative feedback from his followers set him off. He told some people they should commit suicide because no one will miss them, and he told other that their dad should have used a condom.
Well the big wigs at the travel channel have gotten word of this unfortunate incident and they have postponed the airing of Richman’s show Man V. Food. No word on when the show will air. Adam Richman’s Instagram page is now private as well.
Do you think this was the right thing to do? Should be cancelled for good?
Actress Zendaya Coleman was cast to play R&B singer Aaliyah in the Lifetime movie, about the singers life.
Many did not think Zendaya was the right person for the job. Although she had the looks and the singing and dancing talent the negative feedback was heavy. People were saying that Zendaya was not black enough. How rude!! Well Zendaya has now dropped out of the movie. With Aaliyah’s family threatening to stop production because they believe the platform is too small and many critics being very critical, the poor girl didn’t have a chance.
The Aaliyah movie is currently on hold.
