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 I second I thought I was as 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 Strhan 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 in 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?

SPIN OFF SHOW ALERT: THE FLOCKA’S ARE COMING TO VH1

It was only a matter of time for VH1 to take a couple from the Love and Hip Hop franchise and create a spin off show. With their recent nuptials still brewing rapper Waka Flocka and his stylist wife Tammy Riveria are now the stars of their own reality show. VH1 has not confirmed that this is show is actually in the works. Waka Flocka instagramed a photo of his wife and himself. I don’t think this is a prank, but we shall see……………..

TEASERS: THE DIVA’S ARE COMING AND SO IS TINY AND SHEKINAH

TV One has a new reality show coming to their network. Piggybacking off of the R&B Divas franchise. Todd Tucker and his partner Carlos King have produced Hollywood Divas. The new series will follow actresses Paula Jai Parker (Friday), Countess Vaughn (Moesha), Golden Brooks (Girlfriends), Elise Neal (The Hughley’s) and Lisa Wu (Real Housewives of Atlanta) as they try to keep their star presence lit in Hollywood. 

 

VH1 are also piggybacking off of their Tiny and TI Family Hustle franchise, they have produced a spinoff show starring only Tiny and her best friend/hairstylist Shekinah. These country girls are hitting the road in a mobile hair salon. I’m laughing already. These two together on the road are going to be worth watching. Although they are very confrontational with each other, you can see the love and the friendship out weighs any drama that may come their way.

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?

 

MOVING ON: THE HEAD OF ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING AT BET STEPS DOWN

Loretha Jones has held her position as the Head of Original Programming at BET for 6 years. She has since decided to step down and remain a creative consultant for the network. Thanks to Mrs. Jones BET gained a new and larger fan base. Jones was behind the return of The Game,and green-lit the networks scripted series Being Mary Jane and Book if Negroes.

Jones has many TV notches under her belt. She was the vice president for MTV Films/Paramount. Jones also produced The Five Heart Beats, Carmen: A Hip Hopera , Martin Lawrence Live RunTelDat, Fighting Temptation, and executive produced The Parent Hood. Loretha Jones has definitely contributed lots to the TV/film industry. All of her production were apart of my childhood and still continue to inflluence my life. Thank you Mrs. Jones.

 

SO THE VMA’S HAPPENED: BEYONCE, BEYONCE, BEYONCE AND MORE

So the MTV VMA’s came and went. Beyonce shut the award show down with a medley of her latest albums songs. Blu Ivy, Kelly Rowland and Jay-z were all there cheering her on. Face it people, Beyonce is the greatest entertainer alive. She is FLAWLESS.

There is going to be much talk about Beyonce’s remarkable performance, so let me touch on a few other things from the VMA’s that deserve a mention.

Miley Cyrus won an award and instead of accepting the award herself, she let a homeless gentlemen accept the award a give a speech about homelessness in the city of Los Angeles. At first it was weird (because Miley didn’t come on stage) but it got emotional real quick.

Oh and the Anaconda Rapper Nicki Minaj performed with an obvious wardrobe malfunction. She was performing with Ariana Grande and Jessie J. MTV also caught a glimpse of Ariana and her boo Big Sean backstage holding hands. Why is he called Big Sean though? 

And this happened……… Katy Perry and Riff Raff came to the award show together in matching outfits, hot damn! Remember Riff Raff was a contestant on the reality show from G’s to Gent’s. Fonzworth Bentley tried to help this man, but I guess he learned nothing about style and everything about networking. How did these two cross paths, only god knows.

 Overall it was a pretty good show. Good job MTV.

WHEN YOUR NAKED DATE TURNS ON YOU: CONTESTANT SUES VH1

So what happens when you sign up to appear on a naked dating show? Well you study the show when it airs and look and see if any of your private parts are not blurred out. Model Jessie Nizewitz says her vagina was not blurred out when her episode of Dating Naked aired.

She is now suing Vh1 for $10 million smacakaroos. Jessie claims she was dating a guy and after her vagina appeared on national television he has not called  her back. She blames Dating Naked and Vh1.

Vh1 just might settle with her. But I really don’t see how she could win the entire lawsuit. There was obviously some misconduct or fault. The little scene of her hoo-ha was not covered enough. Jessie honey we live in a world where Kim Kardashian became a star because of her sex tape. I am pretty sure you little 2 second vagina being exposed will not ruin your life. I hope not.
