RIHANNA GOES TO THE HOSPITAL

This is fact. Rihanna had to cancel a concert and was freakin’ hospitalized with the flu. She was so dear that she gave the fans and apology to Sweden.

“I am sorry to everyone who was coming out to my show in Malmo, Sweden. I was so excited to perform for you all. It would have been a great time…so much better than being sick with the flu, ugh! I’m really disappointed I couldn’t be there.”

She’s all good.

ILLSEED’S QUICKIES

Amber Rose will now be a prominent feature on Master of the Mix, a show on BET. I guest Just Blaze and a bunch of celebrity DJs wasn’t enough.

LMAO! Kim Kardashian getting a divorce. I know that dude Kris couldn’t take that his wiz was on camera with Ray-J. He couldn’t take it!

Terrell Owens is requesting a reduction in his child support. Dude isn’t working and he claims that he need a break on the cake. Believe it or not, I agree with him.

Drake is rumored to be creeping around with former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger. She just broke up with her man, the race car driver dude.

TV FAB: Keenan Ivory Wayans BRINGING BACK “In Living Color”

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-10-2011

Producer Keenan Ivory Wayans is bringing back his classic FOX sketch comedy series “In Living Color.” Get the deets on Homie The Clown inside…..

 

In celebration of its 25th anniversary, FOX, along with host and executive producer Keenan Ivory Wayans are set to bring back “In Living Color” this season with two half-hour specials.

And if all goes well with the ratings (and we know it will) a rebooted version of the series will appear on Fox’s schedule as a regular series next fall. Keenan will be producing the series through his Ivory Way Prod., in association with 20th Century Fox TV’s Fox 21.

As you will recall, the series launched the careers of the Wayans brothers, Jim Carrey, David Alan Grier and Jamie Foxx among others. But this time around, Keenan is bringing on an all-new cast. No word yet on whether any of the “ILC” veterans will make an appearance (as folks like Marlon will be busy with his own ABC project), but I’m sure Fire Marshall Bill and Antoine Merriweather would be hilarious if they were updated for 2011.  Will J.Lo go back to her roots does a guest stint as a Fly Girl?

Who’s your fave “ILC” character?

NEWS ROUNDUP: 5-YEAR-OLD JHESSYE SHOCKLEY IS MISSING / JUDGE APPROVES BLACK FARMERS’ SETTLEMENT

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-10-2011

It’s been nearly three weeks since 5-year-old Jhessye Shockley was reported missing in Glendale, Arizona, by her mother, Jerice Hunter, who said she left the kindergartner with Jhessye’s older siblings while she ran an errand. Authorities have received numerous tips regarding the missing child from as far away as Ohio, but continue to “[look] for that break and it just hasn’t come yet”.

Hunter reportedly served three and a half years in a California prison for abusing her other children and was released in May 2010. Family members claim Jhessye may have also been abused. Cousin Mahogany Hightower said that the last time she saw Jhessye at a family barbecue in April, the little girl “cried really bad, telling us she wanted us to take her home. She wanted to go home now. We told her you can’t come home with us now, but you will later. She goes, ‘I can’t go later. I’ve got to go now.’” Hunter, who is eight months pregnant, denied those claims as well as any involvement in Jhessye’s disappearance.

“It is very unfair to ask me that,” she said, her voice rising. “Do I look like I hurt my daughter? Do I look like I hurt my daughter? Do I look like I hurt my daughter?”

Family members have stressed to police that they want them to look at everyone, including Hunter. A cash reward is offered for information regarding Jhessye’s disappearance, and anyone with information is urged to call the Glendale Police Department at 623-930-HELP (4357), the FBI, 911 or any police agency.

JUDGE APPROVES BLACK FARMERS’ SETTLEMENT

On Friday (Oct. 28), U.S. District judge Paul Friedman awarded a $1.25 billion settlement to thousands of black farmers who suffered racial discrimination and were denied loans and assistance from the Department of Agriculture.

Friedman said that while “historical discrimination cannot be undone” the settlement would “provide relief to an awful lot of people for the broken promise to those African-American farmers and their descendants”. President Barack Obama called the court’s decision “an important step forward in addressing an unfortunate chapter in USDA’s civil rights history”:

The U.S. District Court’s approval of the settlement between the Department of Agriculture (USDA) and plaintiffs in the Pigford II class action lawsuit is another important step forward in addressing an unfortunate chapter in USDA’s civil rights history. This agreement will provide overdue relief and justice to African American farmers, and bring us closer to the ideals of freedom and equality that this country was founded on. I especially want to recognize the efforts of Secretary Vilsack and Attorney General Holder, without whom this settlement would not have been reached.

MAG COVERS: LA LA COVERS ‘TODAY’S BLACK WOMAN’ / J. LO COVERS GLAMOUR + B.T.S. VIDEO

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 31-10-2011

Reality television personality La La Anthony is on the cover of Today’s Black Women Star Report magazine for their December 2011 issue. Inside the Love, Loss & What I Wore actress discloses how she achieves her goals successfully and balances her own life with that of her marriage:

On her overall approach to success:
“You have to set a goal and really work towards it. A lot of people say, ‘I want to do this, I want to do that,’ but what are you doing to get to that goal? If you want to act, are you in acting classes? It takes that kind of commitment to get better at a craft, and people see the final result; but they don’t know the work it takes to do these kinds of things.”

On her acting career:
“I just wrapped Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, which is based on Steve Harvey’s book. I’m really excited about that one. It’s really funny but has a great message. There’s an incredible cast; you have Taraji Henson, Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good, Michael Ealy, Kevin Hart…I mean the list goes on and on. To be a part of a cast like that is awesome.”

On having a successful AND balanced marriage:
“You need to have your own thing going on, so you can live in your world as well as in the world of your relationship.”

Speaking of Love, Loss & What I Wore, La La will be playing her last theatrical show on October 30th. If you’re in the NYC area, it’s not too late to buy your ticket. As far as her reality television show, La La’s Full Court Life‘s season finale will air on Monday, October 31 at 9pm EST.

JENNIFER LOPEZ TALKS LOVE & LIFE LESSONS IN GLAMOUR

Jennifer Lopez aka Glamour magazine’s Woman of the Year is on the cover of their December 2011 issue. The Latin “On The Floor” singer shared a bit about her personal style and what she has learned from her sudden divorce from her former husband of 7 years, Marc Anthony:

On her personal style:
“The things I liked when I was, like, 16 and in the Bronx—jeans, cut-up T-shirts—I still like. But I’ve been exposed to so much now from traveling the world and seeing couture clothes. I used all of that when I created my new line for Kohl’s. My style has come from everything, from where I started to where I am today.”

On her lesson on love and relationships:
“I think I’ve finally learned the biggest lesson of all. You’ve got to love yourself first. You’ve got to be OK on your own before you can be OK with somebody else. You’ve got to value yourself and know that you’re worth everything. And until you value yourself enough and love yourself enough to know that, you can’t really have a healthy relationship.”

This issue hits stands on Tuesday, November 8! Peep the behind-the-scenes video clip at the bottom
