Anderson Live Canceled

Bad news for Anderson Live fans! It was announced today that Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show will not be renewed for a third season.

Telepictures, which is part of Warner Bros., announced today that due to soft ratings, despite a live reworking of the show for its second season, the show will not be renewed, but will continue to air through the summer of 2013.


Natina Reed (of Blaque) Passes Away

According to several reports from other blogs and friends on Twitter, Natina Reed (the rapper from 90s group Blaque) passed away last night.

She was unfortunately killed in a hit and run after trying to cross the street. She would've celebrated her 33rd birthday tomorrow. She leaves a son Tren with rapper Korupt.

This is crazy to me! I loved Blaque! Matter of fact, I was having an impromptu 90s music session the other day and of course Blaque was featured. It's so sad to know that Natina is gone. Thoughts and prayers go to her son, her group members, and the rest of her family and friends.


"Let's Make It Official"-Jersey Shore S6, E6 (RECAP)

Another Jerzday, another recap! Picking up from last episode, Deena is arrested for dancing in the street and is going to the Drunk Tank to sober her up. Ronnie is very nonchalant about the arrest, and suggests that they keep on drinking and chill. There's nothing really that they can do, so Sammi and Ron go on about their day.

Later, MVP goes tanning, and, of course, Mike goes to see her boo Paula and thanks her for the strawberries. He invites her out to dinner after. His plan is to ask her out officially at Rivoli's. Then they head to the sporting goods store to get some things to do after Sunday dinners. Mike also gets Snooki a stroller as a nice gesture to try to turn things around for them. She definitely won't forgive him, but it's a nice gesture I guess.


"Going Insane"-Battle of the Seasons Episode 6 (RECAP)

Picking up from last week, we have six teams...well five and a half, with Knight and Jemmye holding on for New Orleans.

Alton and Frank get into a little altercation in the gym. Frank keeps trying to antagonize him, but Alton keeps his cool. Later, Alton makes a decision not to go to the beach with the rest of the house.
It's a rule on the show that if one of them doesn't go out, nobody goes out. That pisses Sarah off as well as the rest of the house. Of course, Frank gets into it. Then Frank starts a fight with Dustin when Dustin comes to Alton's defense. Frank is quite the little annoying instigator!


"Merp Walk"-Jersey Shore S6, E5 (RECAP)

I see MTV went back to showing just one hour of Jersey Shore this week! I must not have been the only one complaining! Picking up from last week, the brawl at Bamboo continues! While Jenni tries to stop Roger, he pushes her down, prompting her to throw a drink in his face! It's pure chaos, and the cast ends up leaving. Jenni tries to talk to Roger about the situation, but he ignores her. Meanwhile, she tries to walk, but her ankle is jacked up! She goes to talk to Roger, but he is just freaking out and is mad that Jenni tried to get involved. He tells her that "she deserved" to get thrown to the ground.

Back at the house, everyone talks about the melee. Ronnie goes to call Roger to see where he is and check on him. Roger tells him that he feels like Jenni feels she has to control him, and is pissed off that she tried to break up the fight!


"N-A-R-C-I-S-S-I-S-T-I-C"-Battle of the Seasons Episode 5 (RECAP)

Did you check out last night's episode of Battle of the Seasons?! Picking up from last week at the Arena, Devyn volunteers herself to go into the Arena which sucks for her romance with Eric (Remember, Fresh Meat are in YET AGAIN!). JD volunteers himself for Team Brooklyn as well. The dueling teams play mental game "Water Torture," which has two giant water tanks and two giant puzzles. The girls will be lifted by a rope to solve the puzzle.  The twist is the guys have to hold down their partner's weight by hanging by a rope from their ankles and hold their breath under water for as long as it takes for their partner to solve parts of the puzzle.

JD has the advantage because he's a competitive swimmer, and he's worked with marine animals. Fresh Meat seems to be going a lot quicker at first, while Brooklyn is struggling with communication. However, with the blood rushing to his head, Eric begins to struggle to get to the bottom of the tank, and the competitor in Camila starts freaking out. Eric eventually decides to quit the Challenge AGAIN, which sucks for Camila. She starts to go off on him, and I honestly can't blame her. It's clear that she wasn't trying to quit herself! Eric has a history of quitting, and now he did it again. Eric, stay AWAY from the Challenges. The game was completely out of Camila's hands which sucks for her. Of course, Devyn is sad to say goodbye to Eric, because that's the end of their romance for now. However,  I'm happy that Brooklyn gets to stay! Fresh Meat is the second full team out behind Austin!


REPORT: Beyoncé Performing At Superbowl 2013!!!

This just in! According to the Associated Press, Beyoncé will headline the Super Bowl halftime show in February 2013! The official announcement about the show is supposed to come Wednesday.

Superbowl XLVII will take place on Feb. 3, 2013, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, the first in that city since 2002, and the first since Hurricane Katrina's major destruction of the city in 2005.

Bey isn't a rookie to the Super Bowl, having sung the national anthem at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004 in her hometown Houston when the New England Patriots defeated the Carolina Panthers. 

Am I excited to see a full half-time show of Miss Beyoncé Knowles?! You damn right! She is amazing on stage, and I know that she is going to kill it in New Orleans! This is the most I've ever been excited about a Super Bowl halftime show...well...EVER! (I'm a stan, so I'm biased haha). And who knows? Maybe just maybe she'll bring out hubby Jay-Z, or even old Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams! Too excited for this!

"Toxic Shots Syndrome/Blues, Balls, & Brawls"-Jersey Shore S6, Episodes 3 & 4 (RECAP)

MTV, I don't like that you combine these episodes for this last season of Jersey Shore! One, it shortens the season (I mean, how many two-hour episodes can you possibly show?). Two, it's mad long to recap! Goodness gracious! But I digress.

Picking up from last episode, Snooki prepares to move out of the Shore house. It's hard, but necessary. However, the house is basically right next door. It's really cute, and small just for her. It's still crazy that she's a mom! Of course, Snooks welcome the rest of her roommates to come when they want, only with some stipulations--no girls, no alcohol, and no craziness! Meanwhile, Mike plans to go to the doctor to get a shot to block any opiotes, alcohol, and prescription painkillers. It's painful and seems like people don't trust him, but it's necessary for his health. Nobody wants it to ever happen again! It's good to see him serious about his sobriety.


"The Dark Knight"-Battle of the Seasons Episode 4 (RECAP)

Time for more of Battle of the Seasons! Picking up from last week's episode, we're down two members from Fresh Meat after Cara Maria and Brandon were eliminated in the Arena, leaving Eric and Camila to fend for themselves. The house enjoys a day on the water. Eric and Devyn are happy, flirting with each other. Meanwhile, Knight and Trishelle talk. Knight is suspicious of Team Vegas after they almost broke the Cancun/San Diego/New Orleans/Vegas alliance last week.

TJ sends a clue later that night : "Tomorrow is the perfect opportunity to shed some excess weight." Nany later goes searching for her missing bag of laundry, only to find that her clothes are in the pool. Knight is the one who did it, trying to break her down, but really just looks stupid. Jemmye herself goes to tell Nany. The whole house turns on Knight for his stupidity. He's trying to mentally break people, and goes to throw more of Nany's laundry in the pool. It's immature, but everybody comes out to help her get her clothes out. Dustin makes it fun by diving in to get the clothes. All of it did was put a target on Knight's back (and the rest of their alliance).


Lady Gaga Receives Peace Award from Yoko Ono

Lady Gaga appeared with Yoko Ono yesterday for a ceremony in Reykjavik, Iceland. Held in her honor, the event celebrated the singer as she received the LennonOno Grant for Peace.

Gaga was honored with the award for her charity work, including her own Born This Way Foundation, and most recently, her Body Revolution 2013 campaign, which empowers her fans to embrace who they are, flaws and all.  Yoko praised her saying to Reuters Television, "Lady Gaga is in a position of #1 as a singer/songwriter. And when you are #1, you don't want to risk yourself. And she did."

Beyoncé Drops Out of Clint Eastwood's "A Star Is Born" Remake

Beyoncé has officially announced that she will no longer be starring in the Clint Eastwood's remake of the classic film, A Star Is Born. The film follows the love story of a talented young woman who falls for a falling star. There have already been three other versions of the movie, including the 1937 original film with Janet Gaynor and Fredric March, a 1954 version with Judy Garland and James Mason and a 1976 remake with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.

Bey released a statement explaining that she dropped out of the project due to her busy schedule. "I was looking forward to the production of 'A Star Is Born' and the opportunity to work with Clint Eastwood," she told E! News. "For months we tried to coordinate our schedules to bring this remake to life but it was just not possible. Hopefully in the future we will get a chance to work together."


Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman Split!

Man! Here ends one of the longest surviving Hollywood marriages! Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are separating after 30 years together, their rep confirmed to PEOPLE.

The It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor, 67, and the former Cheers actress, 64, were married in 1982.

Many might know them, as I do, when they starred together as worst parents of the year Harry and Zinnia Wormwood in the classic movie Matilda. Together, the couple founded Jersey Films, a production company that produced films including Pulp Fiction and Garden State.  DeVito and Perlman have three children, Daniel, 25, Grace, 27, and Lucy, 29.

Even though it may not mean much to people, I literally screamed "Noooooo!" at this news! They've been together so long, so for them to break up now is sad to hear. Hoping they each find happiness after!

MOVIE REVIEW: Steel Magnolias 2012

Steel Magnolias is a classic in the film industry! The 1989 original, starring acting veterans Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, and Julia Roberts, along with Dolly Parton, Olympia Dukakis, and Darryl Hannah. I'm not going to give a whole recap of the movie, but for those of you who have never seen the original or the remake, it's about six women who are all close friends who share in the ups and downs of each other's lives down in Louisiana. The film is filled with laughter and love, and well as tears and pain. With all of the great reviews about the film, t honestly only made sense that one day, someone would want to make a remake.

And here we are, 23 years later, with a remake from director Kenny Leon. When the news of the remake came out about a year ago, and I heard that it was with an all African-American cast (starring some of my favorite black actresses like Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad, and Alfre Woodard, along with Jill Scott, Adepero Oduye, and Phylicia's daughter, Condola Rashad), I was beyond excited!

Some spoilers may be ahead.


Jersey Shore: The FINAL SEASON Season Premiere (RECAP)

Final Season Double Episode Premiere Thursday Oct 4 At 10/9cOf course, I HAD to recap the sixth and FINAL SEASON of my favorite MTV show, Jersey Shore. I had to miss the two hour premiere, because Scandal comes first (Shout out to Kerry Washington), but luckily I caught the rerun at midnight! It's going to be a long one, since the episode was two hours, but you'll love it (*smiles*)

Mike has been working on his addiction to prescription pills. He went to rehab to detox, and is now clean. He has been hanging out with Paula for a while, and hopefully they'll commit to each other. Snooki is six months pregnant, and heading to the Shore for tradition's sake! But she clearly won't be able to party and go crazy like she has in the past. Jenni moved in with Snooki for a while, but moved back in with Roger. They're doing better now, but still have to work on their issues.


"What Happens In Vegas..."-Battle of the Seasons Episode 3 (RECAP)

Watch The Full EpisodeSorry that this took so long! The presidential debates were last night at the same time as Battle of the Seasons, so you know which one I had to pick (Rock the Vote...but make an INFORMED decision people!). I finally had a chance to check it out and do a recap.

Picking up from last week's episode, we're down one full team already, losing Team Austin! Back at the house, everyone is resting a little easier, with some even making some love connections! Eric clearly has a thing for Devyn, while Alton and Sarah are developing a connection of their own. Trishelle doesn't trust it at all, because she was told that Sarah is extremely manipulative during these challenges, and she thinks Alton's lovestruck enough to fall for it.

Chris Brown Officially Breaks Up with Karrueche Tran!

Is anybody really shocked? I'm know I'm not! Today Chris Brown officially announced his decision to end things with girlfriend Karrueche Tran. And, of course, it's about Rihanna!

"I have decided to be single to focus on my career," Breezy said in a statement via his label rep. "I love Karrueche very much but I don't want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna." So it's clear that he ended it because he still wants to be "friends with Rihanna, and Karrueche ain't cool with that!


Chris Brown and Rihanna Allegedly Make Out In A NYC Club

Chris Brown and Rihanna apparently were spotted making out at NYC's Griffin nightclub Monday night!

The exes were "hugging and kissing," an eyewitness at the club said to Celebuzz. THEN, Chris was photographed leaving the same hotel where Rihanna was staying on Tuesday night! Coincidence? HA!

At the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards a few weeks back, Chris congratulated Rihanna on her Video of the Year win with a kiss on the lips. That, of course, did not go over well with Chris' girl Karrueche Tran! According to a source, she "totally pissed off. She felt the kiss was a public slap in the face." In fact, on that same day, Karrueche tweeted, "There's a difference between a man and a boy." She then added, "I prefer men." This just all adds to the rumors we've been hearing basically all year of Chris and Rihanna hooking up.

I've always felt that Chris has been using Karrueche to try to get over Rihanna, but to no avail. I say that he and Rihanna should just be together already, and stop playing with Karrueche's emotions. Rihanna still loves him, and Chris is clearly not over her, so just be together!!!

Nicki Minaj GOES OFF on Mariah Carey During Idol Auditions!

TMZ got an exclusive clip of Nicki Minaj GOING OFF at the judges' table during a taping for American Idol! So clearly that "beef" between her and Mariah Carey is either real, or being used as a promotion tactic (I wouldn't put it behind FOX to try to compete with X Factor and The Voice).

Yet and still the video is crazy dramatic! Nicki gets REAL ratchet! I feel so sorry for Randy having to put up with this!

Check out the craziness after the jump!


Bow Wow Makes $4000 A Month, Order to Pay Child Support

Seems like Bow Wow's new gig at 106 & Park came just in time! According to TMZ, he has been ordered to pay child support for his 1-year-old daughter Shai. However, Bow Wow apparently wasn't working with much money at Cash Money to begin with!

Bow Wow and baby mama Joie Chavis were in court Monday, with the main fight being over exactly how much Bow Wow is worth and how much he has to pay! Finally, Bow Wow agreed to shell out $3,000 a month in support for baby Shai. However, he told the judge that he makes $4,000 a month working as an employee at Cash Money Records. Yes, that's allegedly all. He also testified he leases a Jeep and has a grand total of $1,500 in his checking account.

Khloé Kardashian and Mario Lopez New Hosts of 'X Factor'

Back to the serious grind! Even though I'm working on several different blogs now in addition to Spotlight, I can never forget this blog or Team JWWWD! This is where it all started, and honestly, the reason why I have gotten many of the opportunities I've had! And I'm committed still to writing for you all...and for the love of it. No matter how tired I get!

On to the news! After weeks of rumors and gossip, it's pretty much done. Khloé Kardashian and Mario Lopez reportedly are the new co-hosts for The X Factor! The announcement is being kept under wraps for now, but should be officially made by the show later this week!
