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.
Do you remember when Diddy was Makng Da Band? Well one of his band members Sara Stokes has been making a name for herself and it’s not for her music. Everytime I see this lady in the news, she is being arrested. This time Sara was arrested for allegedly beating the crap out of her husband Tony. This recent arrest violated Sara’s probation and now she will have to spend 93 days in the slammer.
Life after reality TV for the Stokes Family has been nothing but a nightmare. I personally think that this family had these issues before Sara’s Making Da Band Days. Background checks should definitely be done on any future reality stars.
Has signing with Bad Boy turned Sara in a bad girl?
R&B Diva songstress Chrisette Michele is not feeling being on reality TV. When i heard she was going to appear on R&B Diva’s I was shocked. Chrisette comes off like the artist Prince, super talented and very reserved. Chrisette may have quit R&B Diva’s LA. Being on the reality show has shown her the ugly side of people. Unfortunately she has been getting negative feedback, because she wore some angel wings and wanted everyone to share and express their feelings.
Check out the letter Chrisette wrote to her fans.
Should Chrisette quit reality TV? Can she change the game? Or will the world only accept only the ratchet and never the positive on their TV screens?

Attention all black actors if you ever dreamed of being in a Woody Allen production, I am sorry to inform you that you will have a better chance of winning some money on a lotto scratch off.
Famous yet controversial director Woody Allen says that won’t hire a black actor unless the role requires one. Huh? That like saying Yes all of my best friends are black. During an interview with the New York Observer Woody was asked why black actors are not featured in his films. Well old Woody all of a sudden got very uncomfortable with the question.
“Not unless I write a story that requires it. You don’t hire people based on race. You hire people based on who is correct for the part. The implication is that I’m deliberately not hiring black actors, which is stupid. I cast only what’s right for the part. Race, friendship means nothing to me except who is right for the part.”
Woody then went on to say he is friendly with Spike Lee. Wow!
I personally do not care if Woody cast a black actors or not, there is new blood behind the scenes now and they are writing roles for everybody. If Mr. Allen thinks that his philosophy on hiring black actors is acceptable than so be it. We are talking about a man who had an affair then married his adopted daughter. So with the being said I am moving on………………….. NEXT!
Do you remember when Brandy appeared on the Oprah Show and told Oprah that she was married and pregnant? Well I do. I was a senior in high school and I came straight home to watch that episode, just because Brandy was going to be on it. Otherwise I would have been hanging out at green acres mall.
Brandy lied on that episode. The singer was not more married than Shug Avery on The Color Purple. Well the world soon found out that she lied when her baby daddy came out publicly and admitted to not being married. Brandy really has a great PR team, because that incident went away rather quickly and the world forgot. Hmmmm but not Oprah. So Brandy appeared on a recent episode of Oprah’s Where Are They Now, and Oprah got a chance to ask the singer why did she lie. Brandy tearfully answered mama Oprah. She said being pregnant without being married was a sin and shunned upon at that time. Check out the video below to hear more.
Love and Hip Hop Atlanta reality star Karlie Redd is currently upset with Tyler Perry. Karlie says that Tyler Perry does not want her in his movies. She has auditioned for a role in his movie and he said No Thank You. Tyler already gets enough crap for dressing as a black woman and acting crazy. He has come a long from the chitlin circuit. So I think we can all understand why he wants nothing to do with Karlie Crazy Redd. Her stint on Love and Hip Hop Atlanta has shown us that Karlie is a pretty face, and a brain going to waste. She also likes to like Yung Joc’s fingers. Girl sit down.
