Mike Tyson Sure Loves His Pigeons


Mike Tyson is one of the most puzzling characters of our time. On one hand, he is the brutal boxer with a face tattoo who not only took a bite out of a man’s ear but went to jail for raping a beauty pageant queen. On the other hand, there’s something that makes me sympathetic toward him—the childlike lisp, the air of sadness, the death of his 4-year-old daughter in 2009. Last night, Animal Planet brought another layer of complication to the persona of Mike Tyson with their new show, “Taking on Tyson,” which looks at Mike’s lifelong love affair with pigeons—the bird most of us consider flying rats and have been pooped on by at least once.

“The first thing I ever loved in my life was a pigeon,” says Mike in the promo. Keep reading »

Wayne Brady And Mike Tyson Redo Bobby Brown’s “Every Little Step” Video

I don’t know if you have to have been around to see the original version of Bobby Brown’s “Every Little Step” video to appreciate this oh-so faithful reenactment starring Wayne Brady and, um, Mike Tyson, but I find it to be totally hilarious. Mike needs to work on memorizing his choreography, though. Make sure to watch all the way through to catch “Celebrity Fit Club”-sort-of-grad Brown’s rapping resurrection. [Bishopia] Keep reading »

Here is a very strange television show concept for you: Mike Tyson and the sport of pigeon racing. Evidently, Mike has been into pigeons since he was a kidlet, and will now be hosting a show for Animal Planet called “Taking on Tyson,” about racing the rats of the sky. “I’m honored to be a part of this monumental show,” Mike says. “I feel a great pride acting as an official representative for all the pigeon fanciers out there. I want people to see why we love these birds.” Ooooo … kay. Let’s just hope he doesn’t bite any ears off. Wait, do pigeons even have ears? [EW] Keep reading »

Robin Givens Gets In The Ring With Oprah Over Mike Tyson Interview

Robin Givens really wanted to “sock” Oprah Winfrey after her recent interview with Mike Tyson. Why? When discussing the couple’s 1988 interview with Barbara Walters, Tyson told the Big O that Robin was telling lies about claims of domestic violence. Tyson said, “At that particular moment, I truly wanted to sock her, but I just didn’t do it. I have socked her before, and she socked me before, as well. It was just that kind of relationship.” Sure sounds like domestic violence to me. I wonder what it was that Givens was lying about? And oddly, the audience laughed at this comment and an out-of-character Oprah was silent. Well, Givens was not silent about her feelings about it. She was “really, really hurt” by the laughter and Oprah’s silence. Keep reading »
