“Celebrity Apprentice” has been hyping this girl fight between Nene Leakes and Star Jones all season. I’ve been watching and waiting, but was starting to think it was never going to happen. But OH. It went down on Sunday night. Nene went totally batty on Star in front of Donald Trump and the Biosilk/Chi executive. Awkward! Cringeworthy! My thoughts, after the jump. Keep reading »
Obviously, I will be rooting for NeNe Leakes in the soon-to-start season of “Celebrity Apprentice.” Donald Trump has announced the new cast, and it’s pretty awesome: in addition to NeNe, there’s Meatloaf, David Cassidy, Dionne Warwick, Latoya Jackson, Jose Canseco, Richard Hatch of “Survivor,” Garey Busey, Lil Jon, Mark McGrath, Marlee Matlin, Lisa Rinna, Niki Taylor and Star Jones. But what’s even more interesting is who Trump didn’t pick. “We turned down 35 to 40 people,” Trump says. “We really qualify people.” [People]
So who got the big N-O? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
I was thinking Cynthia was the “normal” one on this season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Until she whipped out her “friend contract.” After NeNe’s fight with her fiancee, Cynthia decided to give NeNe the equivalent of one of those folded notes you get passed to you in second grade. “Do you want to be friends? Circle ‘yes,’ ‘no,’ or ‘maybe.’” It had some business about how NeNe and she can’t ever go to bed mad with each other and, should one of them decide to terminate the friendship, they must get a notarized letter from President Obama. Does Obama know he’s on female friendship patrol? Or better question: has anyone ever heard of a friend contract before? Is that a thing and I just don’t know about it? Cynthia claimed it was a joke, but now I can’t help but think of her as Single Black Female. Keep reading »
We were shocked and awed to learn that comedienne Fran Drescher will be launching her own hour-long talk show on Fox after Thanksgiving. It’s not that Fran’s not funny (I mean, what’s not to love about “The Nanny”?) — and her story of beating uterine cancer is inspiring. But, really, who wants to listen to Drescher’s nasal tone and snorty laugh for an hour?
We would like to appeal to Fox’s head honchos to please not make this a reality. Instead, after the jump, we offer 8 other potential talk show hosts who are less nasal and more crazy than Fran. Keep reading »
You know how everyone in the universe basically agrees that Jennifer Grey’s nose job was the worst decision she ever made, because it changed the look of her entire face and no one recognized her anymore, even though she played Baby in “Dirty Dancing”? That is the way I feel about my beloved NeNe Leakes’ new nose. The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star — and I do mean STAR — was so beautiful the way she was! Whyyyyy did she have to go get her nose chipped away to oblivion?! Ugh. [Young, Black & Fabulous] Keep reading »
