Khloe and Lamar Reality Show Set for ‘E!’

December 31st, 2010 No comments

Here’s what we know about history.  Sports guys doing a reality show usually end up having awful careers when they get back to their real gigs, playing sports.  Look at Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco.  They play for the Cincinnati Bengals.  Most NFL fans are saying who?

On the flip take Michael Vick.  He dropped his reality show on BET in favor of taking over as the starting quarterback the Philadelphia Eagles and is on line to become the league’s MVP.

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom

Now comes Lamar Odom of the NBA World Champion Los Angeles.  What may happen when his and wife Khloe do their reality show next spring?  Well you can bet all this will happen after the Lakers work on repeating again for a championship next spring and Lamar is just too smart to let this get in the way of his real job.

It’s coming and it’s going to be like ‘Newlyweds’ and Bravo’s ‘Bethenney Gets Married’ according to a report in Us Magazine.   All about Lamar and Khloe’s marriage and the banter back and forth between the couple.

This spin-off of all of the Kardashian shows of course will be on E!.

UPDATE!!! Michael Jackson Autopsy Show Canceled

December 30th, 2010 No comments

After scraping the bottom of their shoes after a nighttime walk in the dog park Discovery Communications has scrapped plans to present a special on Michael Jackson’s autopsy.

And you thought ‘Bridalplasty’ was the low end on television, right?  Naaaah!

Michael JacksonOK so it’ was only to be a reenactment of the procedure but the show was scheduled to air in the U.K. on January13th.  An online petition was signed by 9,000 fans of Michael and sent to network President and CEO David Zaslov and the network that issued the following statement:

“…the scheduled documentary related to Michael Jackson’s official autopsy has been postponed indefinitely.”

The co-executors of the Michael Jackson estate say airing the show would be “offensive” and “exploitative” in another letter sent to the network executive.

“Security!!! Security!!!” as Man Jumps Fence, Steals Show from CBS Morning Hosts (Video)

December 30th, 2010 No comments

This is the crazy stuff that happens on live television and why CBS is probably reviewing security procedures for the “Early Show’ after some whack job jumped between hosts Harry Smith and Rebecca Jarvis.

During the 8AM hour this morning Smith and Jarvis were introducing the segments coming up that period of the show when an unknown man holding a sign jumped the fence and began shouting while standing between the hosts.  Both were absolute pros and held their cool while someone grabbed the guy and removed him from the outdoor set.

Funny for a minute.  Scary for talent.

ESPNews Anchor Suspended for Plagiarism

December 30th, 2010 No comments

How insulting can this be.  NBAfanhouse.com is reporting that an ESPNews anchor has been taken off the air for an indefinite period of suspension because he used a phrase during the network’s broadcast straight  from a writer from the Orange County Register in California.

Kevin Ding from the OCR wrote a story about the Lakers-Spurs matchup and Will Selva from ESPNews went on the air using the same wording, not attributing the phrase to the sports writer.  Ding called Selva out on his blog and that’s when all heaven broke loose on the TV anchor.

Suspended?  He should be fired.

Selva has since apologized for his mistake which quite frankly is Journalism 101 at a community college.  Just for the record we got the quote from one of our favorite web-sites Mediaite…

“Christmas isn’t over yet, Lakers fans.
The big game, it turns out, will be the game after the supposed Game of the Year.
In San Antonio on Tuesday night, the Lakers will be out to give themselves and their fans the much-needed gift of hope.”

According to Mediaite Selva used the three sentences word for word on the broadcast, taken directly from Ding’s newspaper article previewing the game,

NBC LA Reporter Beat Up, Defending ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Star

December 29th, 2010 No comments

It certainly wasn’t a “holly, jolly Christmas’ for NBC4 Los Angeles reporter Robert Kovacik.  If you live in LA and watch ‘the news comedians from ‘Today In LA’ on that station, you’ve seen the very well respected and very good street reporter Robert Kovacik bring credibility to that morning news program that really needs it.

Robert Kovacik is way out of that morning show’s league and a true pro.

Now to the story.

Robert Kovacik is friends with Lisa Vanderpump from the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ on NBC owned cable channel Bravo and the couple was having a meal at the Polo Lounge Thursday at the Beverly Hills hotel.  A drunken man began harassing Vanderpump and Kovacik stepped in to tell the man to go away.

Apparently this drunk had a few too many and decide to take a swing at Kovacik, smacking him in the mouth and sending the reporter to the hospital to receive 24 stitches from the punch.  He got popped so bad that TMZ.com says Kovacik’s lip was not only busted open but the assault went to muscles in his mouth which got him an appointment at Vanderpump’s co-star Lisa Maloof’s plastic surgeon husband for additional repair.

The drunk apparently was wearing a ring that got to Kovacik’s face.  The couple went to the Beverly Hills police department to file a report.  Hopefully there will be an arrest and Robert Kovacik gets back to work soon because watching open mike night on NBC4 in LA during ‘Today In LA” is now more like the Thursday night comedy lineup on NBC.

What Was He Thinking? ‘Frasier’s Kelsey Divorce Payout to Camille Grammer

December 28th, 2010 No comments

Ready for this one.  Kelsey Grammer is worth about $100,000,000 and TMZ.com is reporting that his divorce from Camille, star of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ on Bravo is set for a big payout from their pending divorce.

Yeah he might want to think about reconciliation because Camille is set to get half.  Yeah that’s what Eddie Murphy talked about in one of his stand-up routines.  Half.  Richard Pryor told a similar story that his ex was entitled to half of his fortune and she never told one joke.

Camille Grammer is about to get a whopping $50,000,000 from Kelsey because he had no pre-nuptial agreement.  Once again, what was he thinking?  In California, marriages that break up entitle the wife to half of everything that the man owns.  For Kelsey that’s everything he made from ‘Frasier’ and a ton of real estate investments.

Now that’s true love.

But don’t blame it all on Kelsey’s decision to not do a pre-nup.  Camille is not some stupid bimbo as she’s made some serious financial decisions for the couple especially when Kelsey was broke.  Apparently the real bucks come from ‘Frasier’ money that is still coming in the door while ‘Cheers’ is worth nothing to Kelsey.  Probably a good thing.

‘Hannah Montana’ Gone Forever, New Racy Miley Cyrus Photos

December 27th, 2010 No comments

Well you can kiss her goodbye, Hannah Montana that is.  Miley Cyrus is gone for good after this release of new photos showing her in poses not approved in any way by the Parents Television Council.

miley-leaked-photo

The web is ablaze with new photos of the kid TV star and they seem to be so racy that even Kelly Osbourne has had to come to her defense after the release of the new snapshots.

Most will say “so what” but Miley’s got to get it together cause she isn’t Lady Gaga or Katy Perry.  This could be a huge mistake for a career that’s just beginning to grow past tweens to a more adult phase and the system in place is more like Lindsay Lohan than a real true future star.

miley-leaked-photo1

And that’s not good for her long term life in the entertainment business.  To be even more blunt, we think Miley Cyrus looks plain, old freaking stupid.

Take a look at the photos we’re providing and let us know what you think.  We think short term maybe a win, long term, the beginning end of a talented career.

Teena Marie, the ‘Ivory Queen of Soul’ Passes at 54

December 26th, 2010 No comments

OK so she really wasn’t at television personality but showed up a bunch of times at the BET Music Awards and anyone that knows anything about Teena Marie knows this white girl had her place in R & B music.

Teena Marie, a Rick James protege from the disco days and who performed several times on the R & B singer’s albums, has passed away at the age of 54.

Way too young.  For both her and Rick who partied hard like we all did back in the 80′s.

Teena Marie

Teena Marie

For those of you too young to remember Teena Marie, just Google her.  Then pop a few songs of her’s from iTunes on your iPod.  Right now I’m carrying ‘Ooh Wee’ the hit from her 2006 release ‘Sapphire’ on mine.  Give it a listen and you’ll hear why African Americans accepted her not as a white artist but a white artist that could hang on the R & B charts with a passion.

As a former deejay on radio and doing the mobile gigs to make ends meet, a Teena Marie slow jam was always on my playlist.

She was scheduled for a gig in Atlanta on New Years Day before her death was announced by one of America’s legendary radio stations that play Teena Marie.  WDAS-FM in Philadelphia was one of the first stations to announce that Teena passed away today in Santa Monica, California.
