Nelson Mandela's Grandkids Land Reality Show.....

......ummmmm, is this really happening?!?!? *long, hard sigh*
The spotlight will soon shine on three granddaughters of South African and global icon Nelson Mandela, as the women become focal points of a new reality TV show. The program possibly will air in the United States starting in January, said David Manaway, who is married to one of Mandela's granddaughters involved in the production. It hasn't been announced on what channel it will appear, with Manaway saying only "negotiations" are ongoing. The show came about after Zaziwe Dlamini-Manaway -- 34 and the oldest granddaughter being featured -- managed to arrange a meeting with Dr. Robert Rey, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon who is the subject on an E! reality show, when he came to South Africa.
He comes the bullshyt!
Dlamini-Manaway, her sister and a cousin met Rey's executive producer, Rick Leed, according to information provided Thursday by Cutting Edge Communications, which is working with two South Africa-based production companies on the program. Leed also is known for feature films including "Where the Heart Is" and "Company Man." The sisters and cousin -- all granddaughters of Mandela and all raised in Boston -- set up Leed with two South African companies, New Vision Pictures and Out of Africa Entertainment. They discussed crafting a reality show following the trio's personal and professional lives. "The pieces of the puzzle just fitted, the decision was fast, one Skype call and the rest, as they say, is history," said Leed. Dlamini-Manaway, described as the "mother figure," is the child of Mandela's daughter, Zenani, who was born to Mandela's second wife, Winnie. Dlamini-Manaway is married to David Manaway, an American businessman she met while studying psychology at Clark Atlanta University, and has a 10-year-old son and a 2-year-old daughter. Her third child is due in January. Her 32-year-old sister Swati Dlamini is a single mother with a 3-year-old daughter. She works in the communications field, as well as in setting up a charitable foundation focused on housing, education and health, according to show producers. The youngest granddaughter to be showcased on the show is Dorothy Adjoa Amuah, 27, whose grandmother was the South African leader's first wife, Evelyn. She has a law degree and recently earned her master's in business administration -- specializing in luxury management -- from a school in Monaco, according to show producers. Described as sociable and fun, she lives with her brother and dog, Pan. The description of the show describes all three women as "refreshingly authentic" and "positive role models to women all over the world." The Mandela family supports "the right for their children to choose their own destiny and their own path," the Cutting Edge release said.
What say you, Dancers?!?!?!?

Well Guess Who Decided To Stop By Her Local Target?!?!?

*rubs eyes* Ummmmm, is that you Shelly?!?!? Like a regular person in Target? Where are the girls?

First Lady Michelle Obama was spotted in Alexandria, VA yesterday at her local Target store in plain clothes, as if she was one of the regular folks. 

So what exactly did she pick up from the store? A source tells PEOPLE that Obama "picked up dog food and toys for Bo," among other undisclosed items. 

Tampons, perhaps?

Funny Lady Melissa McCarthy Covers "The Hollywood Reporter"

When I see a pic of Mike and Molly's Melissa McCarthy, I instantly chuckle! Few stars can make me do that. She CLEARLY has the "IT" factor!

Emmy award winning actress and breakout star of the hit movie Bridesmaid, Melissa McCarty talks her children, fame and MORE in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter!
On choosing clothes for the red carpet: "Trying to find stuff that's still fashion-forward in my size is damn near impossible. It's either for like a 98-year-old woman or a 14-year-old hooker, and there is nothing in the middle." 

On being confident with her look at this age: "The stupid stuff like what I wear or how I look I can't control, so I just try not to give too much energy to it," she says, calling her body a work in progress after giving birth to Georgette. "At 20, I would have been like: 'Don't they like me? Was it my hair?' At 41, I think the things that define me, I hope, are a lot more than those kinds of petty things." 

On starting a production company with husband, actor Ben Falcone: To have the opportunity to start developing and being on the creating side of stuff, for me, is one of the most amazing and exciting things that’s happened. I’ve been writing for 15 years, and now, suddenly, people are like, ‘Oh, what’s in that drawer?’ It’s like, ‘Well, I’ll show what’s in the drawer.’”

Kandi Burruss Gets A New Show On BRAVO!

Well, Damn! First Kim Zolciak, now Kandi. I see Bravo is passing out shows like hotcakes, eh?
Bravo says it has ordered a TV special called "The Kandi Factory," starring songwriter and "Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member Kandi Burruss. In the program, Burruss will give two proteges the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of pop music success in Atlanta. She has identified three factors that have to fit perfectly together to create a pop sensation -- the song, the look and the performance. Burruss and her team of experts at "The Kandi Factory" will work with the two contestants to try to turn them into music superstars, the network said in a news release. "With her breakout personality and straightforward attitude, Bravo fans have grown to love Kandi on 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta,'" Eli Lehrer, Bravo's vice president of development, said in a statement Thursday. "'The Kandi Factory' will capture a unique look at her successful music career as Kandi transforms two music hopefuls into the next big pop star."
Hmmmmmm. Another singing competition show? I guess. I am happy for Kandi tho! I'm sure getting a break from NeNe and crew is always a bright spot, right?

So Dancers, will you be tuning into Kandi's show?

WELP! It looks like David Arquette has decided to move on with his new life, and that requires him to seek a new relationship with Christina McLarty, a reporter for "Entertainment Tonight" (who happens to be Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis' ex-wife).

While doing an interview with Howard Stern, the DWTS contestant said of McLarty, "She's adorable. I'm not one to run around with different girls. I like someone that makes me feel good and that I can make feel good."


So, does he hope for a reconcilation with estranged wife Courtney? "I'm not; we're in the friend zone now."

Well, it's good to hear that he is happy again, right?

"Nina was different from me in a lot of ways. She was courageous and confident. I'm just growing into that," Blige explains. "But she was like that ever since she was a little girl -- she was never afraid during a period when there was so much racism. She was always bold. I have a lot to draw from -- all the trials and tribulations and battles. But my God, I hope I can do the work and pull it off."

Has Jacqueline Laurita Quit "RHONJ"?!?!?

As you all know, Twitter is the land of the messy, immature and confident ugly people. YEP...sure is! So day-to-day, you are sure to get a front row seat to some kind of drama...usually celebrity based.

Case and point, RHONJ's Jacqueline Laurita. The usually quiet and sweet reality star ran off a few tweets yesterday where she speaks ill of the show that made her a household name and even said that she wants OUT. And to make her point even more clear, Jacqueline didn't even tape the Reunion show that went down yesterday. Ut Oh!

Ya know Dancers, I'm not really shocked by the kiss at all. I'm more so surprised at the fact that Lindsay is back on the Penis Train again. Knew it was only a matter of time. Which sort've confirms my fact that Linday was NEVER a lesbian. Samantha Ronson just had a magic vagina. Wonder where I can get one from? I digress.....

Lindsay Lohan was spotted getting all too familiar with fashion designer Philipp Plein AGAIN, this time exchanging smooches with him on a romantic dinner date in Milan Italy yesterday. 

A source reveals to the press that, "Lindsay has been staying in Philipp’s room every night since she arrived. There’s a lot of chemistry there.”

Hmmmmmm. Something ain't right! If you CLICK HERE for Kimsha Artest's alleged fake Facebook page, this person sure does have a lot of personal photos of Kimsha. But whatevs....we're gonna take your word for it, Ron....oops, I meant Metta World Peace *side-eye to that name*

Via Metta's Twitter page:
My wife is not the Facebook The media is reporting. She loves shaunie oneal and all the cast on basketball show.

Don't believe any negative comments you here about Kimsha Artest. She is happy to be working with viacom and vh1.
I think you meant, *hear* sir. Anyway, carry on....
Kimsha Artest does not like drama so that's why yal have not seen her on the show. She doesn't want to be seen representing females falsely.

is happy on the show and is staying out of drama. Follow her here. She has no drama with shaunie or anyone....

Kimsha Artest on Facebook is fake. I will not post her real fb. But that one is fake!!
So, you believe Mr. Peace???

For Those That Still Watch "America's Next Top Model", Guess Who's Replacing Andre Leon Talley?

Firstly, who still watches this show? No. Seriously...

The newest member to join the judges panel on "America's Next Top Model", fashion-God Andre Leon Talley, has decided it is time to step down as a judge from the long running model competition. 
"I had a great ride and will always consider my experience with Top Model one of the best moments of my life," Talley says. "Tyra is an incredible role model and I learned so much sitting next to her through four cycles."
So, who's his replacement? The outspoken fashion PR executive Kelly Cutrone!
"I am a huge fan of America's Next Top Model and have watched the show for years," says Cutrone, 45, who owns People's Revolution. "Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show."
Listen, if Sir Talley was unable to get people to tune into ANTM again, I highly doubt that Kelly Cutrone can. Maybe it's just time to retire the show?! Just a thought....

Sneak Peek: I think It's Safe To Say That Khloe Is NOT A Fan Of Kris Humphires (VIDEO)?

Ya know, I'm hardly surprised by this!

In this sneak peek of Kim Kardashian's E! television special, Kim's Fairytale Wedding, Kim confronts her sister Khloe Kardashian whom she accused of talking shyt behind her back about Kim and Kris' upcoming wedding.

Khloe explains to Kim that she feels that Kris is disrespectful (and an opportunist) to people in their family and that SHE is the only one that is willing to tell Kim how she feels, while the rest of the family just talks behinds Kim's back about their disdain for Kris.


Of course, Kim tells her sister that she doesn't want her to be in her wedding (we all know that didn't come to fruition), and is clearly upset with Khloe about her argument with Kris.

Kim, I understand that this is your husband, but family will always keep it real with you. Even if you don't wanna hear it!

Did Nicole Richie Get A Boob Job?!?!

According to USWeekly, she did!

While nursing Harlow, now 3, in 2008, Nicole Richie said, "I really don't like [having big boobs]." Times sure have changed! An insider tells the new issue of Us Weekly -- out now! -- that the Fashion Star mentor got implants this summer. "In the past, she said she wanted a lift, though we never thought she was serious," another source says of Richie. Still, "she's been open about it to friends," notes the first insider. Richie flaunted her fuller physique while vacationing with pals in Mexico September 24 -- a stark contrast to the flat-chested bikini body she showed off just one year earlier. The second source adds that the House of Harlow 1960 designer wanted to improve her bustline for hubby Joel Madden, 32. "The pregnancies took a toll. She said breast-feeding killed what boobs she did have!"
I think they look great! There's nothing wrong with a little boob or lift, especially if you were as flat as she was. Now, if she rocked some "Pamela Anderson's", then we would have a problem...

Janet Jackson Joins Her Family At The Conrad Murray Trial

Before I get into this Post, what is going on with this hair, my JJ?!?!? NO BUENO! This is something my mother would rock, and let's face and my mom should NOT be rocking the same hairstyle. I'm not ashamed to admit that....

Now that the Conrad Murray manslaughter trial has gotten underway for the murder of Michael Jackson, the Jackson family are showing their unwavering support in making sure that Dr. Murray gets his just due for what he allegedly did to their brother and son.

Joining the family was baby sister (one of the true loves of my life) Janet Jackson who held hands with brother Randy as they entered the Los Angeles Courthouse for opening statements in Los Angeles, California yesterday.

Jennifer Hudosn Opens "The Jennifer Hudson Weight Watchers Center" In Chicago

WOW! Good for her!!!

Turning her weight loss into another big business venture, Oscar winner and singer Jennifer Hudson has decided to put her money where her mouth is and open the "Jennifer Hudson Weight Watchers Center" in her hometown of Chicago, IL.

Joined by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel at the unveiling this afternoon, J-Hud, who has lost a reported 80 lbs, will donate a portion of the center's revenue to a foundation in honor of her late nephew, Julian King.


The center is on the city's South Side, not far from President Barack Obama's home.

Of the line, Gwennie spoke with Women's Wear Daily:
"Harajuku Mini is a dream come true. I've always wanted to do a cool children's fashion line inspired by the super-cute and playful kid's clothing you find in Japan."

"Target has given me the creative freedom to design kid's clothing that is different than most anything you usually see out there with great quality, attention to detail and most of all, available at amazing prices," Stefani added.
I'm predicting that this line will sell out exactly like the Missoni for Target line did! Let's face it, Lady Stefani is one of the only celebs that have had a successful clothing line (L.A.M.B.).

"Millionaire Matchmaker" Patti Stanger Is In Hot Water For Her Comments On Jews And Gays (VIDEO)

Before I get into this Post, I have to say that I watched the season premiere of Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live when it premiered on Sunday, and I didn't take offense to anything Patti said. Granted, I am not gay or Jewish but I do think she is guilty of diarrhea of the mouth. She has no filter, which turns a lot of people off. Including me at times.....

"Millionaire Matchmaker" Patti Stanger is in hot water after she was a guest on Andy Cohen's late night program, Watch What Happens Live. In the above video, Patti was seen spouting generalizations about gays with a caller that being in an open relationship will definitely work out for him because he's gay. She even threw Andy in the mix asking when was the last time her was in a serious relationship...LAWWWWD!

She also tells another caller that Jews lie. NOOOOOOO, Patti...put a sock in it, my dear!

I think she is DEFINITELY guilty of running her mouth! But unfortunately when you're in the public spotlight, you need to have some sort of verbal restraint.

Now, Patti and Bravo have both issued apologies for the comments on Sunday.

Patti Stanger:
“I am so sorry. I did not mean to offend anyone with my comments last night on Watch What Happens Live.”
And a spokesperson for Bravo says:
“Bravo regrets the comments expressed by Patti Stanger on Watch What Happens Live last night. Her comments are not representative of the network’s beliefs and opinions. We apologize for the offense it caused.”
Tsk Tsk Tsk, Patti!

"Whenever you saw me smiling on camera on Tuesdays, it's because I just had sex."

Jay-Z: Meet The Brooklyn Nets!

Big Boy Shyt!!!
Rap impresario Jay-Z stood on a dais across the street from the monstrous Barclays Center construction site on Monday morning and tried his very hardest to get everyone to forget about the NBA lockout. A minority owner of the New Jersey Nets, Jay-Z made the long-anticipated announcement that the Nets will be known as the Brooklyn Nets when they move into the arena before the start of the 2012-13 season. "I am absolutely humbled," said Jay-Z, who looked resplendent in a dark suit that featured a white pocket square. Jay-Z toured the site. Construction workers flocked for photos. He announced that he intends to christen the new arena with a series of concerts. "Maybe one, maybe two, maybe three—I sound like LeBron," he said, taking a swipe at LeBron James's much-maligned championship prediction with the Miami Heat. For one sun-splashed morning, the labor strife that continues to threaten the 2011-12 NBA season was a non-issue. Perhaps that was the hope. Organizers of the press conference had promoted it by claiming it would include a "major announcement." The event did mark a milestone of sorts: the start of a 12-month countdown until the arena's scheduled opening in September 2012. Borough president and tireless Brooklyn booster Marty Markowitz painted the entire project—buffeted for years by grassroots opposition—as a victory for his constituents, and as a loss for the cross-city New York Knicks, a team he re-branded as the "Manhattan Knicks." "For generations, Brooklyn-ites were belittled and disrespected," Markowitz said. "Disrespected and belittled, no more! Next year, when we formally open this arena, the ghosts of Ebbets Field will forever be lifted." Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark rattled off the events to which the arena will play host: concerts, professional boxing cards, family shows. A person with direct knowledge of the league's plans confirmed Monday that the Atlantic-10 men's basketball tournament will move from Atlantic City to Barclays Center in 2013. Before he delivered his remarks, Jay-Z invited a group of students from George Westinghouse High School to join him on stage. He referenced his own childhood growing up in Brooklyn's Marcy Projects. He used the words "excited" and "pride" and "humbled," more than once. "I appreciate all the support from Brooklyn," Jay-Z said, "because without Brooklyn, I wouldn't be standing here, humbled." He spoke for a total of 1 minute, 43 seconds, and when he was done, he disappeared with his security detail. A phalanx of luxury vehicles awaited, engines running.
*standing ovation* What a GREAT accomplishment...clap for 'em, Dancers!

According to People, "Jordin would sing to him occasionally through the night in his ear if her head was nested on his shoulder. He was excited to spend some [quality time] with Jordin in LA. … The two left together and continued the celebration."

Jesse James And Kat Von D Are Over....Again

*sigh* I wish these two would go away. Permanently.
Kat Von D is all about updating fans on her personal life on Facebook. The tattoo maven turned to the Web to clear up some rumors swirling around her, including her relationship status with Jesse James. Kat wrote a Facebook note over the weekend titled “ODDS and ENDS” to clear up “a lot of the reoccurring questions” that people have been asking her since L.A. Ink ended earlier this month.One of those things was about her love life. “I am not in a relationship (And I apologize for all the “back and forth” if it’s caused any confusion),” Kat wrote. She also confirmed that she has no plans to move to Texas — Jesse’s home base — and will not be opening another tattoo shop. “And I am not leaving my shop here in Los Angeles, High Voltage Tattoo,” she explained, adding “I am in no way retiring.” She also reflected on her final days of L.A. Ink. “As hard as it is to sometimes let go of the things you are so accustomed to doing, I am happy to have done L.A. Ink, but am even more excited about new upcoming ventures — and cant wait to eventually share more about this with you all,” she wrote.


Spotted: Halle (On Crutches) And Nahla In Spain!

Poor Halle! Still purrrdy, tho....

As we reported last week, Halle Berry broke her foot while on location in Spain and now the Oscar winner was spotted with her daughter Nahla and entourage hopping around on crutches on the streets of Mallorca, Spain on Sunday, while the family grabbed ice cream. 

Appeared to be in good spirits, Halle smiled as daughter Nahla played around with the nanny and ate on her ice cream cone.

The Simpson Sisters, Nicole Richie And Samantha Ronson Vacay in Mexico!

It was a weekend getaway for friends and family as the Simspon sister - Jessica and Ashlee - along with BFFs Nicole Richie and Samantha Ronson were all on hand for a quick Mexican getaway to Los Cabos over the weekend.

Also joining the group was Jessica and Ashlee's dad, Joe Simpson, as well as Ashlee's new beau Vincent Piazza and Sam Ronson's designer sister Charlotte Ronson

Nicole recently celebrated her 30th birthday last week, and I'm assuming those festivities carried over to the land across the border. WHY NOT! I say party all month!

New Music Video: Kelly Clarkson "Mr. Know It All"

I am sooooo happy that she has come out with new music! AND on top of that, the song is GREAT!!!

Dancers, after a brief hiatus from the music industry Kelly Clarkson is back with new music and video for her new single "Mr. Know It All" off her new project Stronger (out everywhere Oct. 24th) that has been getting tons of radio play and coverage since it's release a few weeks ago!

Directed by Justin Francis, in the video Kelly shows many sides of her: glammed up, playful and more!

Of her new single, she says:
"I think why I was attracted to it was, first of all, every girl has probably dated that guy, and also just in work life, I've known a lot of those people — especially in this industry," she continued. "And people that try and pigeonhole you. I think I was just attracted to that idea of being a little sassy and feisty with that message."
Enjoy the video above!

Lindsay Lohan Has A Job, Dancers!

And while it might not be an acting job, COT DAMMIT it's a job!

She has not secured a lead movie role in years, so now Lindsay Lohan hopes to pay her bills as the face of a new collection from German designer Philipp Plein, the New York Post reported Monday. Bizarrely, Lohan admitted that the collaboration came about so “spontaneously” that she had not met Plein until Friday or seen a stitch of the designer’s new line until Saturday. But Sunday, she posed for Plein’s new campaign at a shoot in Lake Como, Italy. “Something important to know about this collection is that its expressing something a little bit more edgy,” Lohan said, wearing a skintight black dress with spikes on the shoulders. “And I think maybe people’s perceptions of me have been kind of taken out of context just from what you see and read.” The troubled actress admitted that she and the designer “just met Friday,” but Plein thinks she is perfect. “For me she’s authentic, she’s talented, she’s beautiful,” he said at a news conference at Milan Fashion week. 
Call me crazy and naive, but I am rooting for this girl. I want her to win!
