 Bristol Palin will not go gently into that good night: the country’s most famous teenage mom will be starring on a Lifetime reality show set to air later this year. “Life’s A Tripp” — as in Tripp, her toddler son with baby daddy Levi Johnston — is not the same reality show for the BIO network that Bristol filmed in Los Angeles during 2011 with her “Dancing With The Stars” co-star, Kyle Massey. That show, according to a BIO press release, would have “follow[ed] Bristol Palin’s move from Alaska to Los Angeles with her son, Tripp, to work at a small charity in need while living with her good friends Chris and Kyle Massey.” Lifetime’s 10-episode “Life’s A Tripp” stars Bristol in Alaska and will focus on her life, her siblings and (duh) her famous mama.

Talk show host Wendy Williams had some crap to say about Viola Davis’s decision to go natural at the Oscars  and it was not nice. According to the blog Madame Noire, Wendy Williams said no one wanted to see a “‘Room 222′ look on the red carpet.” I didn’t know what that obscure reference meant, but Madame Noire explained that “Room 222″ was a TV show from the ’60s and ’70s about a black man with a short Afro who taught a history class. In other words, Wendy Williams was implying no one wanted to see Viola Davis with her short, natural hair because it made her look mannish Keep reading »
