NEWSFLASH! Miss Piggy & Kermit The Frog appeared side by side for the first time since announcing their break-up this past Summer.
The former lovers appeared on The Jimmy Kimmel Show late last night to promo their new ABC show.
Leading up to the show’s premiere, ABC’s promo campaign focused on Kermit and Miss Piggy’s alleged breakup and subsequent rebound relationships. Kermit has a new (younger) love interest and Piggy revealed she’s using Tinder to schedule her daily dates.
ABC has revived “The Muppets,” for a new 30-minute series, which marks the 70’s-era characters’ first regular television program in nearly 20 years.
But if parents think the show is strictly for kids, think again! The New York Times reports that it will feel a lot like “30 Rock,” mockumentary-style with quick-zoom reaction shots and confessional cutaways. It will also focus on a bit more ‘grown-up’ topics than the 70’s version.

Ciara hit up late night television a few days ago to promote her “Body Party” project, stopping by both the Chelsea Lately show and Jimmy Kimmel LIVE while in NYC.
[Sidebar: It’s always a bit odd when Ciara appears on Chelsea Handler‘s show, especially considering they once shared the same boyfriend.]

But I digress…
Clearly the ladies have moved past the drama as Ciara hit the set of Chelsea Lately speaking of her love for her new boo Future. CiCi even showed off the ring tattoo she got in his honor a few months back (click HERE if you missed that).

I’m sure you’ve heard by now that teen sensation Justin Bieber has been nominated for a 2010 BET Award for “Best New Artist.”
Justin just so happens to be White and BET just happens to stand for “Black Entertainment Television.”
All of that is irrelevant I guess because it’s not unheard of for the network to honor non-Black artists (Justin Timberlake and Eminem have each been nominated before)… but the question remains about Justin’s cross-over appeal.
Reactions vary, but BET’s Stephen Hill feels that Justin is the total package, “He makes the type of music our audience likes.“‘
[Sidebar: So does Lady GaGa but I don’t see her on the list…]
Award organizers compare Justin’s cross-over appeal to hip-hop’s integration into mainstream america: “Justin Bieber has crossed the color boundaries in the way hip-hop has the other way for a number of years.”
Ummm… I wouldn’t go that far, but he is a talented lil guy! Personally, I’m not even trippin over Justin’s nomination. Shoot. I’m still pissed that Monica was snubbed.
But I Digress…
Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel hit the streets of LA recently to ask random Black folks how they felt about Bieber’s nomination and the responses were HILARIOUS!

Serena Williams shows off her athletic physique in the new issue of Vibe. Fresh off a highly successful Australian Open at which she won both the singles and doubles titles, Serena is flying high off of her successes.
She also stopped by Jimmy Kimmel LIVE where he asked her about her outburst last fall at the U.S. Open where she was fined $92,000 after an angry outburst on the court. The 2009 female athlete of the year also discussed meeting Prince William in Australia and talks about being part owner of the Miami Dolphins.
I’m really starting to love me some Jimmy Kimmel, his interviews are great. Check out more of Serena in Vibe + her full Kimmel interview below: Continue Reading…
