Tyra Banks to Host and Produce Lifestyle Talk Show

Tyra Banks is returning to daytime.  Tyra has inked a deal to host and executive produce a new syndicated daily lifestyle show for Disney-ABC starting in 2015.

The  show will feature Tyra leading a team of lifestyle experts and covering a range of topics from fashion and beauty to home and entertainment as well as empowerment and individual enterprise. A stated goal is to help motivate viewers to improve and enhance their lives by providing cutting-edge guidance. The series will feature celebrity interviews, Internet influencers, experts and everyday people sharing a knowledge of topics key to the daytime audience.

She will host and executive produce the series alongside Disney-ABC’s Summerdale Productions. The show will be broadcast from Los Angeles and distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television.

Tyra says:

“The fire to inspire women and help them to blaze new paths fiercely burns inside of me. I’m excited to be partnering with Disney-ABC to usher in a new era of lifestyle, beauty and entertainment that will inspire women to be the CEO of their lives via honesty, humor and the newest tips and tricks without being intimidating or precious. To my fierce fam of future viewers: I can’t wait to shake up daytime TV together. I have a lot of information to give and still lots to learn. Let’s do it!”

With this news, I’m wondering what happened to her new show based on her teenage years..  It had an interesting concept.

WTH? Arsenio Hall Show CANCELLED; Dear BET………

Posted May 30, 2014 7:16 PM By Deirdre B Pride
Arsenio Hall

The Arsenio Hall Show will not continue on for its second season.

WTF?  Arsenio Hall Show CANCELLED

Despite renewing the late-night syndicated show for a sophomore run in February, CBS Television Distribution has instead opted to cancel the series.

CBS said in a statement:

“Unfortunately, The Arsenio Hall Show will not return for a second season; while there are many loyal fans of the show, the series did not grow its audience enough to continue.  Arsenio is a tremendous talent and we’d like to thank him for all the hard work and energy he put into the show. We’d also like to thank Tribune and all our station group partners for their support of the show.”

Arsenio said:

“When I started this adventure with CTD and Tribune, we all knew it would be a challenge — I’m gratified for the year we’ve had and proud of the show we created. I’d like to thank everyone on my staff for rallying around me and striving to make the best show possible every night.”

Despite premiering to optimistic numbers, 1.5 rating with households, the ratings took a dive. The talker dropped 60 percent in the key demo within its first several months. There were bright spots along the way. A visit from Prince surged ratings 56 percent.

via Hollywood Reporter

Hey BET, what up?  How can Arsenio be down?  Is there something you can do to help a brotha out?  Or maybe he can take Chelsea’s place, but she wants her predecessor to be Khloe or a woman.

All Jimmy Fallon does is steal folks ideas.  Hence ‘Celebrity Whispers,’  which definitely hits home here.

Rachel Jeantel on Friday was presented her high school diploma, fulfilling the promise she said she made to Trayvon Martin.

 

Trayvon Martin’s Friend Rachel Jeantel Graduates with Sybrina Fulton Looking On

“Her coming is like having Trayvon there saying, ‘You did it. You proved people wrong,’”Rachel told Yahoo News.

Rachel speaks Haitian Creole, Spanish and English, which in my eyes makes her more versed than most of us.  She was ridiculed by some because of the way she talked.

Defense attorney’ Don West attacked her in court about her understanding English dialect. “Are you claiming in any way that you don’t understand English?” She paused and gave him a stare.  “I don’t understand you. I do understand English,” Rachel responded.  She was later forced to admit she had a hard time reading a letter that ws written in cursive.   The public and the media ridiculed her.

Because of the backlash,  , and  Rod Vereen assembled a team of three tutors, a psychologist and other mentors to help Rachel with her stuies. She was entering her senior year but still reading and doing math at an elementary-school level. For nine months, Jeantel received after-school tutoring three hours a day five to six days a week.

If  like me, you have always pondered who Rihanna’s stylist is, the pondering is now over.

 
As for his face, he is picture above with Rihanna.  As for his name, his name is Mel Ottenberg.  Mr. Ottenberg,  styles for Rhi Rhi’s  videos, tours,  most of her magazine shoots and impromptu appearances.  Most recently he styled her for Peter Dundas of Pucci and Olivier Rousteing of Balmain.

 Mr. Ottenberg began working with Rihanna for the “Loud” tour in 2011, for which he commissioned his boyfriend, the designer Adam Selman, and the designer Jeremy Scott to create the costumes.  Rihanna also asked him serve as one of the judges on her reality show “Styled to Rock,”  to which obliged.

Boom!!! Pinkett-Smith Investigation CLOSED Due Lack of Evidence

Posted May 30, 2014 9:56 AM By Deirdre B Pride
pinkett smith

Child Protective Services has failed to uncover any evidence that the teenager has ever been in any danger around her older friend, or that she has been physically or emotionally abused.  This means that the case will be deemed moot.

The Los Angeles County Department of Children & Family Services opened the investigation after the agency received an anonymous tip concerning the controversial photo of Willow and Arias.

After investigation, however, “There has been no evidence presented that Willow has ever been in any danger around Moises, or that she has ever been physically or emotionally abused,” a source told Radar. “It’s likely the investigation will remain open for the next two weeks out of an abundance of caution, with no findings of reprimand against Will and Jada. Willow is a very well adjusted, smart, and articulate young lady.”

The source added, “Will and Jada have told social workers they will monitor their kids’ social media accounts, and encourage them not to post personal photos. It has definitely been a wake-up call for Willow’s parents about the dangers of social media.”

Foul was called after Arias posted a picture of himself in bed with 13-year-old Willow on social media.

Jada confronted the papz  at LAX when they asked about the picture.

“Here’s the deal. There was nothing sexual about that picture or that situation. You guys are projecting your trash onto it. You’re acting like covert pedophiles and that’s not cool.”

It would interesting to know who the complainant was.  Shady move…….

Y’all don’t know nothin’ bout this here.

 

I wanna dedicate this song to all the lovers tonight
And I expect that might be the whole world
Because everybody needs something or someone to love

When it’s cold outside who are you holding?
You know, if y’all don’t mind I’d like to talk about this woman of mine
She’s always complainin’ bout me never bein’ at home
But when I’m there i’m broke

She’s tellin’ me about the things that her girlfriend’s got
What she ain’t got and she wants me to go out and get em for her
But girl, I can’t be in two places at one time

If you think you’re lonely now, huh
Wait until tonight, girl
(If you think you’re lonely now)
I’ll be long gone
(Wait until tonight, girl)
And you’ll find another man that’ll treat you right

(If you think you’re lonely now)
When I ain’t there to rub your back
(Wait until tonight, girl)
Just remember I made it a long fact

And when the skeletons come out of the closet
And chase you all around your room
And the memories sail round like a ghost
And that’s a matter of fact, no joke, ah

If you think you’re lonely now
(If you think you’re lonely now)
Oh, wait until tonight
(Wait until tonight, girl)

I’ll be long gone
(If you think you’re lonely now)
And you’ll never find another man that’ll treat you right
(You just wait until tonight, girl)

(If you think you’re lonely now)
You think you’re lonely now
(Wait until tonight, girl)
Wait, wait, wait until tonight, girl

Oh, ain’t it funny how the tables turn
When things aren’t goin’ your way?
But when love runs out and the pain walks in
And settles for a stay, ooh

(If you think you’re lonely now)
Lord, help me, I feel like I wanna testify
(Wait until tonight, girl)
(If you think you’re lonely now)
Girl, wait until tonight
(Wait until tonight, girl)
If you think you’re lonely, lonely now

(If you think you’re lonely now)
(Wait until tonight, girl)
Oh, you just wait until tonight, girl
(If you think you’re lonely now)
(Wait until tonight, girl)

You see tonight’s the night when the needs come out
When your needs come out to breathe
And you toast the stars and there ain’t now way you can sleep, ooh

(If you think you’re lonely now)
If you think you’re lonely now
(Wait until tonight, girl)
I feel like I wanna testify this evenin’

(If you think you’re lonely now)
I’m lonely, cause I know I gotta leave you, oh, girl
(Wait until tonight, girl)
I just can’t take no more

(If you think you’re lonely now)
Ooh, hoo, hoo
(You just wait until tonight, girl)
Ah, girl, you just wait

(If you think you’re lonely now)
If you think you got problems now, baby, you just wait
(Wait until tonight, girl)
Wait

(If you think you’re lonely now)
Too far gone
(Wait until tonight, girl)
Like you’re runnin’ out

(If you think you’re lonely now)
Ooh, hoo, ooh, hoo, babe
(Wait until tonight, girl)
You say you’re a little lonely

(If you think you’re lonely now)
But everybody needs somebody to love
(Wait until tonight, girl)
(If you think you’re lonely now)
It’s good that you know that you got somebody that’ll stand by your side
That’ll build you up when you’re fallin’ down
(Wait until tonight, girl)
And you had that someone, baby

(If you think you’re lonely now)
Cause I’ve done my time
(Wait until tonight, girl)
And it’s your turn now

(If you think you’re lonely now)
If you think you’re lonely now
(Wait until tonight, girl)
Wait, wait until tonight

(If you think you’re lonely now)
I’m tired, tired of this same old shuck & jiving
(Wait until tonight, girl)
It’s been too long

(If you think you’re lonely now)
You think, you could start all over again, it’s been too long
(Wait until tonight, girl)
You think you could start it just one more time
(If you think you’re lonely now)
