Alex Trebek Host of 'Jeopardy'

Alex Trebek Host of ‘Jeopardy’

Sony Pictures Television, who produces Jeopardy, in a released statement said the host of Jeopardy was “in good spirits and is currently undergoing observation and undergoing further testing” at Cedars but is expected to make a full recovery.  The company also said Alex Trebek will be back for the start of production on Jeopardy which is slated for July.

This is Alex Trebek’s second heart attack.  He suffered one in 2007.  And if you recall Alex Trebek was the victim of a burglar who entered his hotel room while staying in San Francisco.   Alex Trebek tore his Achilles’ heal during that event and was in a cast for six weeks.

The Sony Pictures statement said Trebek suffered a “mild heart attack” and no word yet on his release from Cedars-Sinai.

Reality Television’s Hottest New Personality, K. Michelle Enters the World of ‘Love & Hip Hop’ Atlanta

June 23rd, 2012 No comments

Look out reality TV.  There seems to be a new name that’s blowing up all over the internet today after last night’s debut episode of VH1′s  Love &  Hip Atlanta.  Now if you want ghetto along with a lot of ghetto rats inside the hip hop mecca known as Atlanta, well Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is your show.

K. Michelle from VH1's 'Love & Hip Hop'

K. Michelle from VH1′s ‘Love & Hip Hop’

There’s sex, drama, music and now K. Michelle who has joined the cast of the show.   And from the looks of it although she has the last place in the announced lineup in this trailer, she’s the one that everyone seems to be focused on in Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.

K. Michelle is what they call an Atlanta diva.  Mother of a seven year old Chase Bowman who the show says it will answer “you are the father” but you have to stay tuned in and watch because that will be revealed.  And she’s got a record deal in 2008 with Jive Records (are they still around) and now K Michelle is part of the cast of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.

K. Michelle from VH1's 'Love & Hip Hop'

K. Michelle from VH1′s ‘Love & Hip Hop’

Apparently people are hot on K. Michelle.  Really hot on K. Michelle.  And it has nothing to do with her music career.  Nothing to do with her modeling career.  It all has to do now with VH1′s Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.

Anyway watch the trailer for Love & Hip Hop Atlanta with its new star can we call her, K. Michelle.

Russell Brand ‘Wide Awake’ Dogged by Katy Perry Video, Documentary…5 Million Plus Views (YouTube Video)

June 21st, 2012 No comments

If it wasn’t for the demise of Liars, Cheaters and Bastards the web-site, Russell Brand would be joining me as a member or should we say victim of the wrath of a woman. Now Russell Brand certainly is a bigger name than Rick Thomas and being the former husband of pop superstar makes him a huge target of those who feel he really screwed over Katy Perry.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry – 2011 MTV Video Music Awards

Seems the singer, albeit young and dumb at the ripe old age of 27, made the huge mistake of saying “I do” to Russell Brand and all took a turn for the worse.  Or should we say a turn off a cliff as the storybook romance turned into Katy Perry’s own personal nightmare.

Fast forward to today.  Katy Perry has a documentary coming out that is on the mind of Russell Brand because he apparently agreed to be part of the production but now wants out.  Fast forward again to Liars, Cheaters and Bastards and Russell Brand’s brand is right there next to mine.  Katy Perry tossed him the middle finger so the show or the documentary must go on.  In addition now Katy Perry is taking the the world wide web with a video titled Wide Awake which pretty much documents her time with the actor.

Russell Brand

Russell Brand

Welcome to my world Russell Brand.  Take it from me, this is not over.  Not over at all.  Once you piss off a woman you’ve dated or married and you bring them in to that area of scorn, well you’re screwed.

But in my case, I kinda like the attention.  Doing great for me personally as I am now a bad boy.  Unfortunately you don’t look like a bad boy.  Me?  Well just search the web for my picture.  I’d try to do over the crack of dawn.

So Katy Perry’s Wide Awake has over 5 million views with a bullet as they say in the music business.  Russell Brand, well he’s kinda wimpy so he may not have fun with it as I am.  But I feel for the guy, I really do.

Check out Wide Awake.  And think Russell Brand.  Wow!

Not So Surprising, NBC’s ‘Today Show’s Chopping Block, Set to Release Ann Curry

June 20th, 2012 No comments

And this is not coming from one of those low end, low ranked sites.  Kinda like this one.  No this is a report by Brian Stelter from the New York Times who today reports that NBC is moving to rid the Today Show of one of the company’s biggest mistakes since Jay Leno and the 10PM slot that was an instant failure.

Ann Curry

Ann Curry

This time it’s the smart work of NBC’s new parent company Comcast which don’t play the typical past NBC type crap which is to let it ride and the network is looking to move Today Show co-host Ann Curry to another place which is not seated next to Matt Lauer.  NBC, according to the New York Times, is on her way out at the top rated morning show.

Not surprising I say.  This was one of those mistakes that only came as Meredith Vieira’s insertion in the show going around Ann Curry after the Katie Couric passing to CBS left NBC with one move.  Promote Ann Curry.

Big mistake.  Huge mistakes.

Ann Curry is a pure news person.   To good actually for NBC’s Today Show.  She clearly is not a fit.  Uncomfortable banter back and forth with the other cast members. overly forced interview techniques with guests, a condescending approach in an attempt to level with those guests and just an awful integration in the Today Show.

Now when it comes to reporting the news, Ann Curry would be a perfect fit.  Take Dateline where she anchored prior to becoming a full time host on Today.  What professionalism she portrayed when a part of that show.  And NBC’s low rated Brian Williams hosted Rock Center could use a boost as well by working Ann Curry in to the content of that show.

NBC’s has nothing to lose and a lot to gain.  But moving Ann Curry is a smart decision.  And now is the time for her to go.

Read the story at the link below.  It’s really interesting.  But again give NBC some props.  Give their new owners their props.  With the Today Show responsible for millions upon milli0ns of advertising dollars Brian Roberts over at Comcast won’t wait it out as networks like NBC did in the past.  Time is money and the time has come for a change.

The Devil Made Me Do It, TV Pastor Creflo Dollar Beats Up 15 Year Old Daughter

June 17th, 2012 No comments

Sometimes I gotta watch some of these TV pastors do their thing on TV, wondering how in the hell they get people to follow them with such zeal and vigor.  I always thought about starting my own church just for the money but with my luck I’d get struck down by lightening.

Creflo Dollar’s empire just got struck down by the hands of the Fayette County Sheriff’s department in Georgia for using what black folks have used in the past when disciplining their children.  And we’re not talking about the hand of God but Creflo Dollar used the hand of Creflo Dollar during an altercation with his 15 year old daughter.

Television Pastor Creflo Dollar

Television Pastor Creflo Dollar

Creflo Dollar came to his senses today saying he never choked his daughter who dialed 911 after his alleged  smack-down with his daughter.  In the police report Creflo Dollar went devil all on his kid, bum rushing her as he put his hands around her throat, punching his offspring and then taking a shoe and slapping her as his final volley.

Yeah, that sounds like something a black parent would do to their kid.  Especially the shoe.  Black parents reach for whatever is in the vicinity to get their kids in line.

“The truth is that a family conversation with our youngest daughter got emotional,” Creflo Dollar told his congregation today in Atlanta.  “Things escalated from there.”

Sure did as Creflo Dollar denies any of the above activities.  But his 19 year old daughter ratted him out to police confirming the incident.  When the pastor finished his shoe slapping he threw his daughter to the floor where she then ran to her mother who denied seeing the assault.

As they do in black churches, Creflo Dollar received support from his followers.  And of course the drama continues.

Kim Kardashian to Oprah Winfrey, Mom Kris Jenner Not “Pimping” Her Children

June 17th, 2012 No comments

There’s Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob of the Kardashian brood all bore by mom Kris Jenner.  They all have careers in the entertainment industry and to ask the question whether their mother is “pimping” out the four of them is like asking whether birds can fly because quite frankly this is a no-brainer.

And guess what?  Can  you blame her?

'Oprah's Next Chapter' with the Kardashians

‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ with the Kardashians

Tonight on Oprah’s Next Chapter, the former Queen of Daytime now turned network executive takes a one on one play against Kim Kardashian and in Oprah’s line of deep questioning she queries Kim on how some believe that momanager Kris Jenner is working her kids to the bone in a effort to of course make money.

So what you ask?  Yeah so what.  Everybody in H0llywood pimps out their kids don’t they?

Kim’s comments on that question include “no one will fight harder for you than your mother” and “she knows all of our moods” when confronted by Oprah Winfrey.

Smart answer.

Let’s be really for real here.  If you got it sell it.  And that’s what Kris Jenner is doing.  Tonight’s episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter will look in to the Kardashian empire that not only includes the four children but their mother as well who some have accused of taking full advantage of her sometimes called talent-less children.

Now here’s the thing about that cold but true statement.  Isn’t television in the reality genre full of talent-less people?  Most of us in the blogging world would have to say yes.

The new episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter with Kim Kardashian airs tonight and probably a few hundred more times this week on OWN.

Watching ABC’s Robin Roberts Personal Saga, Now She Finds a Donor

June 13th, 2012 No comments

ABC’s Good Morning America is making some serious strides in the morning news/entertainment fight against NBC’s Today Show but that battle is nothing compared to the personal drama in the life of Robin Roberts.  The host who many of us watched make her bones on ESPN as a sports anchor is in another battle after her recent fight with the diagnosis of breast cancer.  Now the fight, more than likely caused by the breast cancer treatment, is with a malady called  myelodysplastic syndrome where Robin Roberts will have to undergo a bone marrow treatment for the disease she admits she’s never heard of.

Neither have most of us.

"Good Morning America" - 'Nicki Minaj in Concert' - Robin Roberts and Nicki Minaj

Robin Roberts and Nicki Minaj – “Good Morning America”

What’s good for Robin Roberts today is that she’s found a blood marrow  donor.  Most people don’t get that lucky.  Now she has another lead on life.  Which is good for Robin Roberts and good for ABC.  And good for Good Morning America.

Sounds pretty lame doesn’t it?

Yes it does but guess what?  With Good Morning America trailing NBC’s Today Show by a very slim margin and Robin Roberts a big reason for that challenge, there’s a new energy over at ABC for the morning ratings battle.  And as we all wish Robin Roberts good future tidings, this is a battle those of us in the entertainment business truly want to see.

Sounds cold?

As a cancer survivor those of us want everyone around us to let us get on with our lives.  And that means Robin Roberts wants to get past her next treatment for a disease I don’t even want to try to spell again and move on to continuing the effort to unseat the Today Show from their morning program perch.,

Good luck Robin Roberts on your treatment and the future of Good Morning America.

Great to Watch, NHL, NBA Playoffs and Noah’s Discover Card Day with the Stanley Cup (Video)

June 6th, 2012 No comments

There is no better time of the year.  The NHL Stanley Cup Finals between the Los Angeles Kings and the New Jersey Devils.  Can you beat the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association, all those young kids that have put that city on the map for many years to come with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

There’s no better time of the year watching these playoff games on the NBC stations and cable group & the NBA on TNT, ABC and ESPN.

But it was hard Wednesday night.  A game in the Stanley Cup, the Thunder winners in the West and even a Philly guy had the Dodgers and Phillies to watch.  That’s a night for a sports dude.

But watching the intermission of the NHL contest between the Kings and the Devils brings one of TV’s great product integrations from Discover Card.  They have this thing called Discover Card Day with the Stanley Cup when they actually take the Stanley Cup, on Discover Card’s dime, to a winner who wanted to hang out with the actual trophy that has been the staple of the National Hockey League.

YouTube Preview Image

I could talk about what the content details.  It’s an amazing couple of minutes that I’m sure you will truly enjoy.  I did.  And I hate credit card companies to the max.  But for some reason I always liked the people at Discover Card.  Watch this and I think you might agree.  You can’t help but feel for a kid who has to live his life with his Dad protecting this country.  And every once in a while, with all of the crap that happens in this country…well it’s good to see Discover Card take us back to the country to meet regular folk in America.

We love great video content.   And this is great video content.  No more to say but watch the video.

AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ For Real? Zombie Attacks, A Zombie Apocalypse? (Video)

June 3rd, 2012 No comments

OK so we all know how really popular The Walking Dead has been for the past two seasons on the cable channel AMC.  But in the words of comedian Paul Mooney “this is a bit much.”  Yes there is more going on in Florida these days well ahead of the excitement of LeBron James and the Miami Heat.  They are calling the zombie attacks going on in that city the Zombie Apocalypse.

Yes the Zombie Apocalypse that is taking place in cities and states all across America is pretty much scaring the hell out of everyone and reminding every0ne that there could be the real The Walking Dead among us.

In fact Westlake Ace Hardware stores with locations just about everywhere but where an attack has taken place  has even started a “don’t be scared, be prepared” for a zombie attack and is recommending specific tools you should have should The Walking Dead actually happen in your city.  Here the scoop.

Tampa has been the scene of one gory so called zombie attacks which has started this whole zombie apocalypse if that’s what you want to call it.  In Tampa a naked man pretty much ate the face of another man.

Uh huh…

Then in Maryland college student told police that he killed a man and then took it upon his highly educated self to eat that man’s heart and part of his brain.

Uh huh…

Then there’s the dude in Jersey who decided that he was going to stab himself about 50 times then proceed to devour his own intestines and let us be reminded that it was not New Jersey Governor Chris Christie who has never passed up on a buffet in his entire life.

This really sounds like an episode of The Walking Dead on AMC doesn’t it?  Really that’s what they do on that show.  Eat people?  So is the show to blame or should we blame President Obama who we pretty much blame for everything these days?

Had to take a shot at him after the Chris Christie crack.

YouTube Preview Image

Anyway now the trend is to be prepared for an attack.  Check out the video and the link to the Westlake Ace Hardware stores where they actually have put together web content on being prepared for a zombie attack or the future chance of a zombie apocalypse.

The stories about the real attacks are pretty messy.  But the Westlake Ace Hardware thing is pretty funny.

Russell Brand Asks Katy Perry to Slice, Dice Him, In Her New Doc That Is

June 3rd, 2012 No comments

Is this part of the divorce decree?

Never will you hear anything like this request and certainly Judge Judy will not be taking this case because this would be so dumb of her honor to hear the Russell Brand versus Katy Perry clash about keeping him out of her upcoming documentary on her life.

Most would say who cares about a documentary on the life and times of Katy Perry but in this world of asking the question ”who cares?” well you just have to realize that a lot of people actually do care about the life and times of Katy Perry.

Problem for Russell Brand.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry

And that’s not a question.  That’s a problem for Russell Brand because Russell Brand had one of those short term entertainment marriages to Katy Perry which most thought was going to fail the day the both said “I do.”

Russell Brand

Russell Brand

Now that Katy Perry’s Part of Me documentary is in post production, Russell Brand wants any mention of him in the doc removed because he thinks it will make him look bad.

Has Russell Brand ever looked in the mirror?

So The Sun newspaper over in the UK reports that a source close to Russell Brand says he would only do the filming if he had final say on the end result of what was to air.  Problem is Russell Brand and Katy Perry got divorced and it seems that all previous claims he has on that post production are off.

In other words, Katy Perry has raised her middle finger to Russell Brand on his request.  Yeah, that middle finger.  So now Katy Perry has complete control pretty much over everything in the production of Part of Me.

What’s that line about a woman scorned?

“Now that they have broken up she can keep whatever she wants in the film,” said that source.

Oh, can’t wait to see this documentary.
