These two have had problems since the 90s i believe, or somewhere around that time.
On E!’s “Fashion Police” Joan Rivers and Kelly Osbourse were discussing an outfit worn by Christina Aguilera. Rivers started the shade throwing by saying calling Aguilera “Snooki’s Scandinavian cousin” regarding her choice of a black Givenchy dress. Osbourne took it a step further by saying:
Maybe she is just becoming the fat bitch she was born to be. I don’t know. She was a c**t to me. And she bought my house!
She called me fat for so many f***ing years, so you know what? F**k you! You’re fat too.
Osbourne did struggle with her weight for some years, but has since lost 48 pounds, while Aguilera has publically gained weight over this past year.
Both of them are petite like me, so a 10 pound weight gain is highly noticeable. But DANG KELLY!
I usually try to avoid stories about the “Famous for no reason” crowd, but i applaud this honest interview.
Let me start by saying that I’ve never been a fan of this show. I tried to watch one episode a while back and the fact that none of them were married to a NBA player at the time of airing made me feel like the show’s title was misleading and defeated the purpose. The term “Wife” was used VERY loosely, and that Royce chick just bothered me.
But, I know a few people who enjoy Basketball Wives, and the show had parlayed its way into popular culture, so here you go.
In an interview the show’s creator, star, and former wife of Shaquille O’Neal Shaunie admits that she is not proud of what the show has become.
According to Bossip, O’Neal gave an Interview to Fox 411’s PopTarts column stating the following:
I never imagined it would be a group of ladies fighting and arguing that way that they do. That was never part of the plan.
I hate that it has to be a fight or an argument that gives us 4.2 million viewers. I hate that, but it’s something where I’m working as hard as I can to show some type of balance, because it is there. We do know how to act, we do charity work. I would love a little more balance and we’re going to try to do more of that in season 4.
And when asked about the upcoming Los Angeles edition of the show, which also has her name on it:
I feel like that show, from what I hear in certain production calls and stuff like that, is turning into ‘I have slept with a basketball player at some point of time in my life, so now I’m on Basketball Wives’. That’s definitely not what I brought to the table and not what I would be proud of having my name on. I think that’s a whole different show that I wouldn’t produce.
O’Neal says that she won’t even let her own kids watch the show.
Her show is feeding into the who “Famous for No Reason” phenomenon that has been taking over TV, radio, and the internet for a few years now. This type of stuff needs to end, in my opinion.
Thirty years ago today, a channel dedicated to the 24 hour airing of music videos debut at 12am. This channel prided itself on being the first of its kind, showing music videos from the hottest artist of the 1980s and onward. It wasn’t until Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” came along that they began showing more videos by black artists.
All through the 80s an 90s this channel helped make Jackson as well as Madonna, Janet Jackson, Prince, and many other pop legends what they are today by airing their music videos 24 hours a day.
Sure, in the 90s, this channel showcased a few shows such as TRL and Say What? Karaoke, but the core essence of the channel was still MUSIC. They even had a few cartoons like Daria that featured the latest hits and Beavis & Butthead who would provide commentary on music videos in their own special way.
It even showcased the ground breaking reality TV show The Real World, the first major reality TV hit, but still ran more music videos than shows.
And lets not forget Unplugged, Diary, Making the Band, and Making the Video, showcasing some of the most popular artists of the time.
At the turn of the millennium, unfortunately, this channel began to stray away from the 24 hour music video format for more shows like Jersey Shore, 16 & Pregnant, Teen Mom, more installments of the Real World, Road Rules, Real Worlds/ Road Rules Challenges, Buzzin’, Dismissed, The Hills, MADE, Laguna Beach, and so many more reality shows that the channel just about stopped showing music videos all together. The even dropped the tagline “music television” from the bottom of their logo :(
Despite the absence of music videos, the channel still manages to air the Video Music Awards once a year, awarding artists for their innovative music videos that do not get shown on this channel.
So, today I salute the MTV of yesterday by presenting you MTV’s first ever music video “Video Killed The Radio Star” by the Buggles (the irony when a music video could make or break a career for a while. And yes, this is the song sampled for Nicki Minaj’s “Check It Out.”)
I knew from his audition that he was going to win.
Javier Colon became the early favorite to win the new hit reality tv singing challenge “The Voice” when his beautiful rendition of Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” was the first audition to get Cee-lo, Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine to turn around.
Last night on the season finale, Colon was voted by America the winner of the competition beating out Dia Frampton, Beverly McClellan, and Vicci Martinez. Colon also got to sing “Landslide” with the legendary Stevie Nicks.
Since Colon won, Levine was also the winner among the four judges.
Chris Hansen has entertained America in the most unusual way. His show “To Catch A Predator” corners, interviews, and arrests grown men who meet young girls on the internet in an attempt to have relations with them. The show became popular because of the unintentional comedy behind catching sexual predators. You would think of all people Hansen would never get caught doing something sexually inappropriate, right?
The National Inquirer has reportedly caught Hansen ON CAMERA cheating on his wife.
According to the Los Angeles Times Hansen, a 52-year-old married father of two has been having an affair with a 30-year-old reporter from Florida (at least she wasn’t underage.)
Hansen and his mistress were secretly videotaped on June 24 at the Ritz-Carlton in Florida having dinner and then returning to the reporter’s room. Cameras also caught the two emerging from the hotel room at 8am the following morning.
This goes to show, if Chris Hansen can get caught, SO CAN YOU!
Actor Jeff Conaway, most popularly known by my generation as Kenickie in the classic musical Grease passed away today. He was 60 years old.
Conaway was in a medically induced coma stemming from pneumonia and was taken off of life support Thursday afternoon, according to the Los Angeles Times.
While Grease shot him to fame, Conaway was also on the TV series Taxi and made various film and TV appearances throughout his career.
Conaway suffered from a substance abuse problem in the 1980s, stemming from prescription drugs he uses after suffering a back injury on the set of Grease. He relapsed in the 2000s and appeared on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. After cleaning up, Conaway tried to warn actor Cory Haim of his fate if he continued with substance abuse, but Haim died in March 2010.
Conaway’s Grease cast mate John Travolta told E! News of his passing:
Jeff Conaway was a wonderful and decent man, and we will miss him. My heartfelt thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this very difficult time.
