Who’s Going to See It??

Posted by Bossip Staff

Will Smith was in Miami for the premiere of his new movie, Seven Pounds, and he looked mighty dapper, if you don’t mind us saying so. We don’t care about all the gay rumors surrounding Will Smith (wink) because his movies are great.

With that being said, Who’s going to see his new movie when it “comes out”?

More pics of Will below.

Ceddy Ced was on the scene for an event commemorating American Buffalo’s opening night and he was given a bottle of Crown Royal XR. It must be nice for Cedric to drink that high end stuff (retails for between $140-$180) while us regular folk are stuck drinking the regular Crown Royal that comes with the purple bag.

More pics of Cedric cuddling his precious bottle below.

Heather Headley was in Hollyweird performing songs from her new Gospel album, just looking like a Colgate model with her cute self. SMH at the fact that she performed in a strip mall courtyard.

That’s Just The Way It Is

Posted by Bossip Staff

Keyshia Cole’s reality show has broken records according to Livesteez:

The third season debut of BET’s original series “Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is” has just become the network’s most watched original series season premiere telecast of all time.

A total of 1.4 million households and 1.94 million viewers tuned in on Tuesday night (Nov. 11), giving the show’s season debut a 1.54 coverage rating, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The premiere posted a 10% increase in viewing among households compared to last year’s premiere, maintaining the series’ consistent year-to-year household growth with each season premiere (1.18 million and 1.24 million households for season one and two, respectively).

Additionally, episode two of “Keyshia Cole” aired immediately after the premiere and built on those strong lead-in numbers, scoring a 1.67 coverage rating and drawing 1.5 million households and 2.0 million viewers. Episode two of season three now stands as BET’s No. 1 original series telecast so far this year, according to Eurweb.com.

We love to the see the organized drama that is Keyshia Cole’s life, including her mom and sister acting a donkey. We take it ya’ll liked it as well. And if that wasn’t enough, her new album is due out on Dec. 16th. The album cover is certainly interesting, doesn’t look much like our girl Keysh at all…

Seen on the Scene

Posted by Bossip Staff

The flyest presidential couple ever to grace the White House, Barack and Michelle Obama, went out last night in Chicago for dinner.

Before you peep the pics below, check out a few Liveteez’s 8 Steps Black People Must Follow Under President Obama:

2. As “Black People,” we can no longer say that we do not know a family like the Huxtables, now we will say “I know one better, they live in the White House.”

3. “Black People” cannot abuse these four words, ‘My President is Black’. Which means do not pull into McDonald’s drive-thru and tell the person at the window, “I can have it my way, because ‘My President is Black.'” Drive across the street to Burger King.

5. Fellas, do not shoot up your whole ‘hood’, then expect “Black People” to stand behind you. That’s just plain ol’ stupidity and we won’t have any excuses for your black behind.

6. Ladies, be responsible for your actions and don’t allow yourselves to get pregnant by a no-good dude, then name the baby Obama-ichelle, and think that it’s okay. “Black People” and the Department of Family and Children Services will still look at you the same.

Oprah’s Show Headed to Her OWN Network

Posted by Bossip Staff

Oprah’s daytime talk show could have a new home according to Livesteez:

Oprah Winfrey is expanding her media empire and launching her own television network. Discovery Communications, which is partnering with Winfrey in the OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) cable channel starting next year with distribution in 70 million U.S. homes, announced yesterday “The Oprah Winfrey Show” will cease to air via syndication on ABC by September 2011.

“The expectation is that after that, her show will go off of ABC in syndication and she will come to OWN,” Discovery CEO David Zaslav said on the company’s first earnings call as a public company. “We’re talking now about what the presence will be and what kind of programming she would be involved in directly. But this is her Chapter 2, and building the OWN brand online and on-air is . . . a core mission for her.”

Zaslav said Winfrey now is “very involved with us and focusing on what the channel is going to be, as well as developing Oprah.com.”

The move is a blow both to CBS-TV Distribution, which syndicates the show, as well as to ABC, which airs it, reports the NY Post. But Oprah’s company, Harpo, said in a statement that although her production contract is up in 2011, “she has not made a final decision as to whether she will continue her show in syndication beyond that.”

Oprah’s leaving and we have tears in our eyes, but not because we are sad. We’re crying because for the first time ever, we know who has the upper hand in getting one of those new jobs that will be coming. Wink.

Faking It

Posted by Bossip Staff

Keri Hilson knows exactly what to do in the bedroom:

For a woman to feel her best, her man has to support her.” A statement Hilson says goes both ways, even in the bedroom. “Sometimes you have to feed the male ego.” “Men think they know when we’re faking it, but they have no idea. I know girls who are really good at it, and the men have no clue.”

There’s no blaming Keri or any other ladies for faking it sometimes. If the new episode of Desperate Housewives is coming on in 15 minutes and your bust-it-boy needs his “medicine,” you really don’t have any other options.

Someone We Actually Like

Posted by Bossip Staff

The next First Lady already has a transcending beauty about her that doesn’t require a $150,000 wardrobe. She was recently on Jay Leno talking fashion among other things:

Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, , made a guest appearance on Jay Leno Monday, and the talk show host didn’t waste any time mentioning the recent controversy surrounding Sarah Palin’s lavish wardrobe. Questioned by Leno, the potential first lady declined to criticize GOP vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin about revelations that the Republican National Committee spent $150,000 at Neiman Marcus and other high-end retailers on clothes and accessories for Palin and her family, according to The Associated Press. “Actually, this is a J. Crew ensemble,” she told comedian Jay Leno. She wore a yellow sweater, skirt and blouse ensemble. “You can get some good stuff online,” she added. Obama said she and her husband have a policy of spending their own money on their clothes. But she said she wanted to be “empathetic.” “A V.P. pick, it’s like being shot out of a cannon. All of a sudden you’re at the center of attention, and you want to look good,” said Michelle Obama, adding she has never met Palin. “You’re living in your home, minding your business, and all of a sudden you’re on the national stage and everyone’s watching.”

What a classy first lady we will have. Pale-in would not respond remotely as tactfully as Michelle did. You know they would have been handing out flyers, blasting emails, and running commercials if Michelle had spent that kind of money on anything.

Under the Radar

Denzel and his family, including Paulette’s bad self, attended the 30th annual Carousel of Hope Ball in Cali along with a few other couples such as Duane Martin and Tisha Campbell and Rodney and Holly Robinson-Peete. It’s always good to see such radiant Black love.

Tip-Toeing Into Stardom

Jazmine Sullivan popped up at the House of Blues in Chi-Town to perform some tracks from her new album, which we dig. However, we would be remiss if we didn’t point out the shoe game and the big toes being left out to dry. Now, that’s just a d@mn shame. SMH.

Quick and Early Start for Blacks

Posted by Bossip Staff

Blacks are getting an early start to this year’s presidential election, according to Livesteez.

Americans are voting early in large numbers this year — and African-Americans in several states are turning out in disproportionate numbers. Some fear that polling places in predominantly black neighborhoods will be overwhelmed by a record turnout on Election Day. Others are voting early to be certain the chance to elect the first black U.S. president doesn’t slip away. Lorene Smith was in her twenties when she marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as a member of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. She witnessed first-hand all kinds of history-book images — the fire hoses, police dogs and flailing billy clubs. Now, at 65, she has graying hair and a bad back that prevents her from standing too long. She is taking no chances with a ballot she once believed could never be cast — a vote for an African-American presidential candidate.”We gonna have two little black girls in the White House running up and down the hallways to find their dog,” she said as she voted Tuesday

No one has united the black community the way Obama has, since Martin used to come on in the early to mid 90’s. It’s been a long time coming and we are elated to see the type of support shown for Obama. YES WE CAN!!!!!

Black Hollyweird Love

Don Cheadle and his wife (who knew he was married to Sideshow Bob?) attended The Dream Believe Achieve Inspiration Gala in L.A. In these times when a Hollyweird marriage is less binding than a pinky swear, it is refreshing to see these two stick it out and raise their family (knock on wood).

We Know You See It Too

Look at Raven looking all buxomly bodacious. We don’t know, but perhaps it’s the cut of this dress that’s making her shoulders look sort of linebacker-ish. It’s hit or miss with this chick.
