It’s now possible that Flavor Flav, Tyra Banks and maybe even my favorite detective, Caroline Mason could win an Emmy award!? The Academy of Arts & Sciences recently announced that reality tv shows are now eligable for the Emmys!
A category recognizing “outstanding host for a reality or reality-competition program” was created by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and will be presented at the 60th annual Emmys in September.
The award recognizes that reality TV has become “an integral part of television and our culture,” John Shaffner, chairman and CEO of the TV academy, said in a statement Tuesday announcing the new honor. (Source)

One of my favorite former American?Idols, Jordin Sparks has been dropped (temporarily?) from the Alicia Keys Tour.? Reports are that “vocal problems” have caused Jordin to cancel all performances through the month of April.
”Jordin Sparks is on vocal rest and is expected to make a full and complete recovery,” according to a statement from 19/Jive Records. ”Sparks has been going nonstop over the past two years and now she’s going through the normal course of learning how to manage and care for her voice.” (Source)
Tyler Perry says he has a stalker…and I?think I?know who it is!
?”I’m trying to be careful how I say this without inciting this person, but I have a stalker,” he begins. “This person sends several hundred emails a day to my office and has planned our wedding and bought rings and such.? She has showed up at my house several times. What’s crazy is I’ve never met this woman nor have I even responded to her emails. I’ve had to increase the guards at my house as well as travel with body guards and I hate that. I hate to have big guys following me around.” (Source)
Now…who would stalk a 6’5 black man…besides a 6’5 woman?? I’m just sayin… 🙂
Trina…I’m sorry boo, but you are not the Baddest!? What’s BAD is when your sex tape sells for millions 50 years after your death.? Now that’s a Bad B!? Actress Marilyn Monroe‘s sex tape has been sold to a collector for $1.5 Million dollars.? The millions were paid for 15 Minutes of black & white footage that was shot in the 1950’s!? Monroe is said to be performing oral sex on an unidentified man.? The footage was confiscated by the FBI, but?an informant made a copy of it.? FBI director J. Edgar Hoover tried to prove the man in the film was John F. Kennedy or Robert F. Kennedy but was unsuccessful.?
Unlike R. Kelly, Ray-J, Kim Kardashian and Paris?this is one sex tape that will never be seen.? The buyer says that out of respect for the actress, he is keeping the tape under lock & key and is “not going to make a ‘Paris Hilton’ out of her“.? (Source)
Kanye West let out his feelings about life, love and the passing of his mother on his blog the other day.? He says…
I don’t do anything I don’t love anymore… I loved the flashing lights vid so it didn’t matter 2 me if someone one else didn’t. While people chase money I pursue happiness. So many people talk about there investments or how much money they have but there’s so many rich people who spend a lot of that trying 2 buy a piece of happiness. If there’s anything my mom taught me is to enjoy life. I just recorded my first verse in the last 6 months 2 days ago at Bape’s Studio in Japan. It felt good and I was inspired. I absolutely lost my mind (in a good way) on the new Glow in the Dark tour. The constant hours of creating helped me 2 keep from loosing my mind in a bad way. Chris Milk told me tragedy can produce great art and this is definitely true. I am a total mad man now, up till 3 am every night, trying 2 fight pain, board-um, and uncertainty with creativity. All that said, life is good….. good as finding the perfect fabric for a simple one button casual blazer with matching pants. (Source)
