I am telling y'all right now...I will not watch this speeding trainwreck of a show with all of Whitney Houston's family members and hangers-on go at each other over what (relatively) precious little money left in her estate. It's sickening to watch, and I don't need another stomach ache. "HELL to the NO"...RIP Whitney. Feel free to watch this cringe-worthy trailer for The Houstons - On Our Own.
Let's recap what we're dealing with here:
Bobby Brown and Whitney's daughter, Bobbi Kristina will announce her engagement to Nick Gordon, who was raised by Whitney as her own son--and Bobbi Kristina's own brother. Still with me?
Whitney's mama Cissy doesn't want Bobbi Kristina to receive her trust inheritance of $20 million because she thinks all that money will eventually kill her granddaughter through drugs and other bad decisions.
I'll give you an example of one bad decision: The concept and follow-through of a reality series involving a woman who hasn't even been dead one year, and the family that goes out of their way to exploit her and her legacy.
Shame on alla y'all.
It's a man's world. We all know it -- but I'll say it again. It's a man's world.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2012 Inductees were announced today to a bunch of dudes, and a bone (pun not intended, but is fitting) was thrown to one woman. The five inductees in the performer category are as follows: Guns N' Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan, Laura Nyro, the collected bands The Small Faces / The Faces, and Beastie Boys.
No Joan Jett. No Heart. No Donna Summer....but mostly? NO JOAN MF-ING JETT???
Now we all get to see who will show up at the induction ceremony, besides Paul Schaffer. Will Axl blow the whole thing off? (I'm thrilled for Duff McKagen, I must admit.)
Maybe Paul can have the bands all join him in his classic, "It's Raining Men" for the all-star closing performance. Seems appropriate.
Now I'm crabby.
Oh, yeah. Happy 51st Birthday, Tilda. Whatevs.
Sick. Of. This. I refuse to give Tilda the HONOR of being one of my "Separated at Birth" posts. More like "Trying too hard during every photoshoot."
Who's with me??
While speaking at Maria Shriver's Women's Conference earlier this week, Oprah gave insight to what her new network will be about--and what it WON'T be about. Winfrey told the crowd that her OWN network will be "fun and entertaining without tearing people down and calling them bitches. Imagine that. Imagine". I see, she's channeling John Lennon now. OWN, which stands for Oprah Winfrey Network, will begin January 1st of next year. Oprah is currently filming the final season of her Oprah Winfrey Show, which will end in September of 2011 after 25 years on the air..
"Growing up, I could never find my name on any of those license plates or lunchboxes," she said. "Now, I know what it was for -- to start my own network. A whole network, a whole channel that we're designing to carry the Oprah Winfrey message."
I don't think I can give up the word "bitch"-- in fact Julia, along with our friend Busybeeblogger and I were having fun with the word "whore" last night. That's not what she's trying to do, but it would be nice to have a positive network that doesn't promote snarking and plain hatred. I think that's what the Oxygen network was for, then along came "The Bad Girls Club."
"I know that as I start out on this next chapter, there's going to be some mistakes. I know there's going to be some stumbles. I know I'm a work in process and progress. I know nothing new is perfect, but I'm not scared. I'm not afraid." You go girl! Although Oprah might have made a mistake with her new logo.
The new one is big, and bold, most likely some sort of mission statement. The one on the right was the original, plain but nice. The one on the left looks like a throwaway logo for her magazine. But hey, it's Oprah, she can have the weirdest looking logo for her network if she wants to, right?

Wow. What a crappy birthday present. It's being reported all over the place that actor Laurence Fishburne's daughter, Montana, is making sex tapes as her vehicle to fame and fortune. This is a family in dire need of family therapy...like, probably years ago. Behavior like this doesn't just occur overnight. What the HELL happened here? I'm not sure I really need to know. I just find it tragic that a young woman feels that making sex tapes (let's just call it PORN, shall we?) will help her on her way to obtain fame and money, a la` Kim Kardashian.
TMZ has learned Montana Fishburne is starring in a porno flick for Vivid Entertainment -- explaining, "I've watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape." Unlike the celeb she admires -- Montana is not arguing that her tape was stolen or obtained illegally. We're told the flick is set to be released in August.
Montana also talked to CarltonJordan.com about her new gig, saying "The first time is really nerve racking ... but, I have a lot of at-home experience."
Ummm. Eww. "At-home experience"? Montana made probably one of the most horrible statements a parent ever wants to hear:
"I've watched how successful Kim Kardashian became and I think a lot of it was due to the release of her sex tape by Vivid," Fishburne said in the press release." I'm hoping the same magic will work for me. I'm impatient about getting well-known and having more opportunities and this seemed like a great way to get started on it."
