*Earlier this week budding comedienne, Khloe Kardashian was on “Chelsea Lately” and went in on some recent tabloid stories.
If you missed it, here’s what she said during a monologue:
“In case you’ve never been to the checkout line in a grocery store, my family and I tend to appear in a lot of magazines. I know this might be shocking, but all the stories are 100% false,” the ex-wife of Lamar Odom, who guest hosted for Chelsea Handler, explained. Continue reading

I don’t think there is a person alive that watched The Academy Awards and don’t think Ellen DeGeneres is one of the greatest hosts the show has ever had.
The second-time host of the arguably most watched awards show coming out of Hollywood, has such a natural way with comedy; so down-played you don’t even know you’re in the midst of a skit until the people start laughing…and then you realize the joke is on you!
Not only did she get the munchies in the midst of the show and decide to order pizza for everyone within range of getting a Styrofoam plate (did the pizza guy look a little embarrassed to you?), but you’ve got to remember when she decided she wanted to “break a Twitter record” and rallied a group of folks together for a selfie?
Well the proud owner of that photo is wearing a big grin right now. Continue reading
“Look Ma….I Made It?” is what the Roots drummer, Questlove, wrote on social media after discovering this Daily News cartoon inspired by him and Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon
*Does this mean that Questlove has truly “arrived?”
Not only is his band the new house band on a show that rests securely in ‘top dog’ history, but he was apparently so moved by the Bramhall World’s cartoon that continues to give flight to his latest gig as music director on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ that he sent his mom a special message via Instagram.

Charlamagne Tha God shows No Mercy to this woman!
*For his MTV show, Charlamagne & Friends, Charlamagne Tha God went underground in NYC to see just how much regular folk off the street know about basic Black History Month, and the results made us shake our heads. You’d be downright shocked at how many people don’t know the faces of Malcolm X and Rosa Parks - but show them a picture of Tyler Perry and its on! Continue reading
*One thing is for sure, once Hollywood gets their hooks into you, you are got!
Such is the case for new media darling, Lupita Nyong’o, who has caught the attention of the beast and is basking in the glory of it all.
You go girl!
As Glamour’s newest It girl Nyong’o shares “beauty tips” (as if anyone could duplicate that look!) as she talks hair and makeup in the magazine’s March issue. Continue reading
*Optimism often proves to be the best medicine.
And legendary newsman Tom Brokaw, who was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma, is keeping a healthy dose of it on hand.
The cancer, said to be located in plasma calls, is also known as Kahler’s Disease; a disease so named after the Austrian physician, Otto Kahler, who developed cancer of the tongue and died in Vienna in 1893.
Brokaw, 74, is currently a special correspondent for NBC News.
According to a study by the National Cancer Institute, the 10-year survival rate for someone of Brokaw’s age is 3%. Continue reading
(L-R) Taraji P. Henson as “Jane” and Arye Gross as “Marvin”
“Looking back, I still can’t believe how unprofessional the news media was. So much spin, so few hard facts.”―
Excerpt of Max Brooks’ quote from (World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War)
Above The Fold makes its debut at the Pasadena Playhouse. The play, a world premier written by Bernard Weinraub and directed by Steven Robman, introduces Jane, (Taraji P. Henson), an African American newspaper reporter from New York who is still trying to make a name for herself at an established news agency. Hungry for an assignment that will land her story “above the fold” (a media term that shows a story at the top half of the front page) Jane aims to get the attention of the “Bow Tie” a hard-to-please boss whose presence is felt even though he is never seen; and harnesses the power to send her to Afghanistan for a highly desired assignment.
