…chock full of surprises, if I do say so myself. Just a short while ago ABC announced their new cast members for their 14th Season of Dancing With The Stars. Can you believe it’s been on that long? And once again, they’ve done a good job at selecting a variety of participants:
- Donald Driver, wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers
- Gladys Knight, legendary soul singer
- Jaleel White, actor of Family Matters fame (I hope no one drops tired “Did I do that?” jokes… *side-eye*)
- Sherri Shepherd, host of The View
Just those few alone and enough to get me interested! Check out the rest of the lineup, when you continue…
Well looky looky…Emily B and Fabolous walking the red carpet together and in public at the All Star Games’ Orlando Screening of Steve Harvey’s Think Like A Man. We were all laughing at Emily B when she moved into her “own” apartment, and now look, she has her man right by side in the open for all to see at a movie about relationships. The screening was held at the Cobb Plaza Cinema Café in Orlando, of course, and Chris Bosh, LaLa Anthony, BET’s Stephen Hill, Gabrielle Union, Kevin Hart and kids, producer Will Packer, Terrence J, and Gary Owen were all in attendance.

For the past seven years, late night host Jimmy Kimmel has hosted the Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards episode of his show immediately following the Oscars. Past guests have included Hollywood notables such as Tom Hanks, Don Cheadle, Samuel L. Jackson and even Gabourey Sibide. This year, Jimmy invited the great Oprah Winfrey to be his special guest for the show. What makes appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! pretty special are the skits that he presents with his guests. Oprah goes back to her acting roots to put together a special skit, where Jimmy presents Oprah with show ideas for her OWN Network.
Jimmy presents her with show ideas such as Oprah Repoes Her Favorite Things and, my personal favorite, Oprah After Dark. I think Oprah looks fantastic and I hope she takes more time to develop her acting career. Just on the strength of Sofia from The Color Purple, Oprah really has the makings of a solid Hollywood actress. And thanks to Jimmy, I can now imagine her as being a funny character at that! Check out what she and Jimmy have created, when you continue…
While everyone was preparing for the Oscars, the Braxton Family were filming their reunion special with talk show host diva, Wendy Williams. Toni, Towanda, Traci, Trina, Tamar, and Ms Evelyn sat down with Wendy Williams to discuss a few issues from the show. Hopefully Wendy asked Tamar, why Tamar keeps referring to herself as “she” instead of “I”.
I can also tell you that topics of discussion will include, the tension and jealousy between Toni and Tamar; Trina’s marital woes with cheating hubby Gabe; Tamar’s hubby Vince’s hospitalization; Traci’s struggle to find her true calling; and Ms Evelyn’s recent engagement. We will aslo find out if Ms E married the Doc. Check out a few pictures from the set, and get ready to watch the Braxton Family Values Reunion Special which is scheduled to air on WE tv Thursday night, March 29 at 9PM ET/ 8 PM CT.

After the Oscars, Vanity Fair hosted an Oscar Party. Rosario Dawson, Zoe Saldana, Rashida Jones, and Paula Patton were all in attendance and you can check out their dresses below. Rashida Jones looks amazing in that yellow Valentino. Kim Kardashian was also spotted not too far from the scene at the 20th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Gala, hosted by Elton John. I haven’t posted much on Kim Kardashian since the “divorce”, but she does look beautiful in this floor length black gown by Azzedine Alaia.
