I’m a little bit salty that I didn’t know that actress Aisha Tyler has a podcast show. I’m definitely going to have to get involved with that because she’s awesome. But last week, Aisha invited comedian/actor/singer Wayne Brady on her show, to discuss life. And in their discussion came up the subject of political host Bill Maher, when he compared President Barack Obama‘s ‘weak’ ways to Wayne Brady:
…If Bill Maher has his perception of “what’s Black” wrapped up, I would gladly slap the shit out of Bill Maher in the middle of the street and THEN I want to see what Bill Maher would do…
OBVIOUSLY Bill hasn’t seen the infamous Wayne Brady sketch on Chappelle’s Show, because that pretty much showed that Wayne isn’t all rainbows and sunshine, as he was often portrayed to be. While Aisha does point out that Wayne Brady is now a pop culture reference, Wayne is still is not having it. Hear the full clip, when you continue (some use of profanity)…
Yesterday Jada Pinkett-Smith celebrated Jaden’s 14th birthday, and on that very day Jada received word that Kile Glover, the son of Tameka Raymond was involved in tragic accident. Being a mother, you can’t help but feel a connection of sorrow to another mother’s pain. So, Jada Pinkett-Smith penned this note to all of us with a special message, including her heartfelt condolences to Tameka Raymond and Usher.
July 8th… yesterday was the day I was celebrating the birth of my son only to find out that Usher and Tameka were dealing with the tragedy of their son. In honor of this precious child…tell someone today
Jaime Foxx has new a bohemian look. I noticed his new look while at the BET Awards, and thought perhaps he was preparing for a new film. Although he has finished filming his latest project, Jaime is still rocking his new look. Here he is again hosting an All White Pool Party at The Pool After Dark in Las Vegas at Harrah’s Resort. For some reason I like this look on Jaime…

UPDATE: Tameka Raymond has not spoken to the media on the actual condition of her son. The family just asks for continued prayer in a statement. Two corrections: Kile (the correct spelling) is not Tameka’s oldest son, he is the middle child out of five sons (the third oldest). The family friend was not drunk and there wasn’t a mechanical failure involved. Just a freak accident. I want to make sure we get the details right. Encourage people to pray and lift up Kile Glover and his family (Tameka Raymond & Ryan Glover, and his extended family).
This is hard to report and my prayers go out to Tameka Raymond & Ryan Glover, Usher, and their family and friends. By now you have heard that Tameka Raymond’s middle son, Kile Glover (11), has been declared brain dead following a tragic accident involving jet-skis. Kile Glover and and a 15 year old friend were struck by a passing jet-ski while riding on an inflatable inner tube on Lake Lanier in Atlanta, GA. The story is still developing, but if you believe in prayer, just send Tameka Raymond a word of encouragement, a word of strength…

This could probably count as a “Friday Funnies” post but this may actually be exciting for some people. The Huffington Post sat down with music “titan” Mathew Knowles to discuss his new reality TV show project and Destiny’s Child. And the likely possibility that there will be a reunion tour sometime in the future:
Will there be a Destiny’s Child reunion tour to complement the two projects?
Not on the first release. It takes a year of planning to do these tours, but first it starts with the artist wanting to do it. And I think the ladies are still working happily in their solo careers. And I hope in the next five years that there is a reunion tour. I think it would be incredible. The hardest thing would be choosing which songs they’re going to do, because we would want to mix it up with solo hits and Destiny’s Child hits. We would have to throw away some number ones from off the set list [Laughs].
I don’t know about you, but I really imagine Mathew saying this while doing the *Birdman Handrub*. Can you imagine how much of a cash cow that would be? I’m also afraid of the stans of Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland meeting up. Things could get ugly in the audience. Mathew also took a moment to talk about his new granddaughter Blue Ivy:
According to reports, Evelyn Lozada and Chad Ochocinco have tied the knot. The ceremony took place on America’s Birthday (4th of July) in a lavish ceremony in St. Martin. So while you were eating ribs and watching fireworks with the family, Evelyn Lozada and Chad Johnson were busy saying, “I Do!” There are NOT a lot of pics from the wedding because Vh1 will air the ceremony in September for your viewing pleasure. Chad Johnson also tweeted throughout most of the day, including this infamous tweet below:
I don’t recall sending the butterflies in my stomach an invite.
More details about the venue drama leading up to the big day, when you continue…PLUS, find out which housewife didn’t attend the wedding…other than Jen & Royce???
