Joe Manganiello Stripteases on Wendy Williams, Talks About Magic Mike

Joe Manganiello, True Blood and Magic Mike star, went on The Wendy Williams Show to discuss his new movie, as well as rumors on if he's dating Demi Moore! He even gave an audience member and Wendy a little striptease, showing off the moves he learned for the movie!

Nothing to say except that man is FINE!!!!! *sits in corner and fans myself* Magic Mike, which stars Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Joe, and more, comes out tomorrow! I'm trying to be in the front for this one!

Episode 2-Hollywood Exes (RECAP)

Here's the recap for episode two of Hollywood Exes! I think I'm really going to like this show!

Picking up from the premiereSheree and Andrea go out on the town passing by a cupcake ATM (Now I really want to go to L.A!). Sheree mentions that no one has ever really seen Andrea with Robert when they were married. They were together for 13 years, and married for 10, and I definitely didn't know that he was married! I get being private, but LORD A MIGHTY! Andrea herself doesn't even know why the marriage was such a secret. Sheree believes it was for his public image.  I just think he wanted to be able do his own thing on the side without people caring. I think media would have jumped on him more if they knew he was married and saw him out with another girl. In the end, Andrea felt that the support she showed him and it wasn't reciprocated. She learned from the divorce that you have to say what you want out of a relationship and life in general and mean it.

The next scene goes over to Jessica and her daughter Josie. The mother-daughter pair are close and share everything with each other. However, we see that it has definitely affected Josie not having her father around, and she's looking for that male attention in boys. As Josie talks about dating other guys and getting a feel for love and romance, Jessica is reconsidering having Jose move in with them.

Hollywood Exes Series Premiere (RECAP)

The premiere of Hollywood Exes came on last night at 9 p.m. ET on VH1. I figured I would do recaps of this show as well, in addition to Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta. Though from the commercials, I never fully thought that there was going to be a serious problem with this show like with #LHHATL or Basketball Wives, I was still unsure. The whole time I'm watching, I'm thinking, please, please, PLEASE don't let this be ratchet VH1. I think I've reached my limit haha! Plus the network is getting enough heat. And I must say, I along with many other viewers, was pleasantly surprised.

The show follows five women--Mayte Garcia, Sheree Fletcher Jessica Canseco, Andrea Kelly, and Nicole Murphy--who were all married to big time celebs, and are now doing their own thing. Some are newer to divorce and still need time to sort things through, while others have been divorced for almost 20 years, and have been able to get past it. They all connect and relate to each other because of their similar circumstances.

The first episode of the show premiered online for viewers Monday, but I never watch premiere episodes early. I love to tweet with people while the show's going on. If you didn't know, I'm a social media addict (well, not literally before people get ideas), so I have to tweet and post pics on Instagram (onespotlight) and Tumblr. Anyway...on to the recap!


"Power Circle"-Maybach Music Group (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

"Pregnito"-Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta S1, E2 (RECAP)

Stevie tries to talk to Mimi about the issues with Joseline.

Time for a recap of Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta! Picking up from the premiere episode, Mimi talks to Ariane about the whole mess between her, Stevie, and Joseline last episode. She clearly sees that something else is going on besides just the music. Ariane states that she is willing to do whatever to get her to leave him. She thinks Mimi is too comfortable under Stevie and asks Mimi if she thinks she's gonna leave him. Of course, Mimi doesn't answer.

The next scene goes to rapper Rasheeda and her manager-husband Kirk. Together, they have five kids (one of their own, and the rest are Kirk's). Rasheeda is trying the independent move in terms of her music, and are now in the process of picking a new single. They go back and forth about it, because Rasheeda wants one single because she just likes it, whereas Kirk picks the single "Marry Me," because he thinks it will go over well with fans. From the start, we see that they clash as husband and wife/artist and manager. Not sure if business and pleasure is going to work for them.


Spotlight Celebrates Three Years!!!

Wow. Can't believe it's been three years since I started The Spotlight! I say this every year, but it's true. Spotlight has grown into something really special to me. When I was trying to break into the entertainment industry, and the doors were glued shut because of my lack of experience, I made my own experience. I thank God for sparking the idea, for now opening doors after I started this.

It was three years ago when I started this blog, and every year, it's getting better. I'm getting better as a writer. The whole JWWWD team is getting better. We're doing exactly what we wanna do, writing exactly what we love, and that's why it works so well. We're learning and growing, thanks to my fabulous editor-in-chief, President Ella, who's a serious hustler. I aspire to be on her level.

I'm quietly making plans. I have an awesome opportunity here  and I'm striving to make Spotlight and JWWWD even more than we are now. I'm determined that we're going higher. It's time to put in more work!

Thanks readers for the support and love!!! 


"The 'A' List"-Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta S1, E1 (RECAP)

So I wanted to watch Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta since it was first announced. Mainly because I'm in LOVE with the original Love and Hip Hop and knew that since it was based in the ATL, there would be a lot more ratchetness. Yes, I admit, I watched this show because I KNEW it would be ratchet! Fools' ratchetness equals viewers' entertainment. The producer of the show, Mona Scott-Young, knows EXACTLY what she's doing with these shows! 

I wasn't going to actually recap the show, until a friend of mine joked about waiting for a review from me. So I figured why not? I'm recapping JWoww and Snooki, so why not this show too? Need new shows to talk about since The Game is done for the season. So let's go! The show follows six ladies (Mimi Faust, Erica Dixon, Rasheeda, K Michelle, Karlie Redd, and Joseline) who are in some way all connected to the hip hop industry, whether it be through their men or in their own careers. 

Read my recap below! It's a long one, but it's worth it. I bolded people's names so you can kind of skip around if need be.


"Summer Dreaming"-Kelly Rowland (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Kelly Rowland has teamed with Barcadi and recorded a cover of Kate Yanai's "Summer Dreaming" to celebrate the company's 150th anniversary.  Directed by of Annick Wolfer, the video is fun and colorful, and PERFECT for the beginning of summer!

Kelly said of the song, 
"The song and its history enthralled me right away. My aim was to record a joyful, colourful, sexy song and give it a bit of soul quality. The collaboration with BACARDÍ was so much fun. We had an awesome time recording the song. The story is all about the celebration. It’s almost like you’re seeing my dream come to life before your eyes and I wake up and I’m like, ‘I’m really dreaming!’”

Check out "Summer Dreaming" below!

Moesha's Yvette Wilson Passes Away From Cancer

Sad news to start the morning. Just found out that Yvette Wilson, who played Andell Wilkerson on Moesha and The Parkers, passed away from cervical cancer last night. She was only 48 years old. The actress was suffering at Stage 4 with the cancer.

Yvette's friend and former co-star, Shar Jackson (she played Moesha's best friend Niecy), had been tweeting, asking her followers to pray for Yvette for the past few days now. She revealed the news that Yvette had passed away last night on her Twitter.

I didn't even know that she was sick! Terrible news! I used to watch Moesha and The Parkers all the time growing up and I loved her character. Thoughts and prayers go to Shar, and Yvette's family and friends during this difficult time. 


R. Kelly Owes Almost $5 Million in Back Taxes

image?.CaptionR. Kelly is now a part of the league of celebrities that has been or is in debt to the IRS. Apparently the singer owes more than $4.8 million in taxes dating back to 2005.

A rep for the singer said, "R. Kelly is in the process of working everything out with the government and is confident that all his obligations will be satisfied."

The breakdown of the alleged non-payments includes: $1,472,366.77 (2005), $710,520.51 (2006), $376,180.11 (2007), $1,122,694.90 (2008), $173,815.18 (2009) and $992,495.24 (2010). The total bill comes to $4,848,072.71.

For some reason, I'm not all that surprised. Hopefully Kells takes care of that and quick. He's coming out with his new album, Write Me Back, later in the month. So his management needs to get him some appearances and performances. Maybe even a tour. Because Uncle Sam does NOT play about his money!

Chris Brown Gets Hit In Alleged Fight with Drake's Entourage

Chris Brown apparently got a pretty nasty cut on his chin from a bottle thrown allegedly after his entourage clashed with Drake’s friends in a club.
The NYPD confirmed to TMZ that the crews got into a fight at WIP Nightclub in NYC with 5 people being injured, one of them being Chris. The police got to the scene after getting a call between 4 and 5 a.m., but neither Chris and Drake were there when the cops showed up. No arrests were made.


Amanda Bynes Charged With DUI, Begs President Obama For Help

Amanda BynesAmanda Bynes has been formally charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs following an April 6 run-in with a cop car. It's been reported that Bynes is also accused of refusing a police officer's request to complete a chemical test to determine what substances were in her system.

After being charged, she tweeted President Barack Obama to help her out...and to fire the cop who charged her! "Hey @BarackObama... I don't drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me," she wrote to his Twitter account. "I also don't hit and run. The end."

In this incident, Amanda was involved in an alleged hit-and-run in Hollywood. She sideswiped another vehicle while she was trying to pass on the right in her Range Rover SUV. She continued driving after the hit, but apparently cooperated with police when they pulled her over, saying that she didn't realize she hit the other car.

Amanda.....girl. One, what is it with all of this trouble you're landing yourself into lately? And two, going to President Obama for help? And through Twitter no less? The President of the United States of America has way more important things to do than to fulfill your revenge plot on some cop. Things like the war, unemployment, his re-election campaign, things of that nature. Get back into acting. PLEASE. You have too much free time lately to me. Idle bodies equal trouble!

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Engaged!

Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth Are EngagedAfter three years of dating, singer Miley Cyrus and  actor Liam Hemsworth are engaged to be married! Their reps confirmed the news to PEOPLE.

"I'm so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam," Miley said.

Liam and Miley met when they co-starred as love interests in The Last Song back in 2009 and were dating ever since. Liam proposed on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring from jeweler Neil Lane!

Wow! I think they're a very cute couple, and I hope that their marriage holds up! I want them to have a nice little engagement though. They're both pretty young, and are busy with their own ventures. Right now, Miley is working on a new album, and Liam is filming a few movies before he stars filming the second Hunger Games movie. Think they should just take it slow and make sure marriage is right for them right now. Congrats to them though!

"The Championship Game Episode"-The Game Season Finale (RECAP)

Picking up from last episode, the Season Finale of The Game starts out with everyone celebrating the championship game, which is about to start soon. Malik, though arrested last episode, makes it at the very last minute to the championship. Apparently the situation was resolved and the cops actually end up driving Malik and Jenna to the stadium. Malik, still upset at Jenna, leaves her behind with the cop car with 7 minutes left til kickoff.

At the airport, Rick Fox tries to make Melanie see Derwin's point of being a professional athlete and finally having a championship game and wanting to have his girlfriend to look up to in the stands. Rick also talk about his breakup with Tasha, and reminds her that the decisions that we make in life can have a negative impact on those we leave behind.

Next we see Chardonnay on the bus. When she requests her stop, the bus driver refuses to stop. She of course, goes off and has a breakdown since Jason just broke up with her and she lost her job last episode.


Beyoncé At Revel DVD Trailer

It's only been a week since Beyoncé performed at Atlantic City's new Revel Resorts and Casino, and already she has plans to put out the DVD. She and her team released the trailer for the DVD today, which I'm really excited about! I didn't get a chance to go to the concert, but I've seen a lot of the performances on YouTube (basically the whole concert!) LOL but I know that Bey and her editing team will put together an amazing DVD, so I'll be buying! No word on when it will actually be released. I'm hoping sometime before the end of summer. Check out the trailer below!
