American Idol Contestant Falls From Stage

Was it nerves? Exhaustion? A simple slip?

Whatever the case, 16-year-old American Idol contestant Symone Black took a scary-looking fall off the front of the stage on Wednesday’s night show, Fox offered no update on her condition, instead using the accident as a cliffhanger for Thursday’s program.

“Medic, please!” stagehands cried out, as Black lay crumpled on the floor, having tumbled off the stage, which looked to be a good 5 feet high, after apparently passing out.

Black’s father was among those who rushed to her aid. At least one person tending to the California teen – who came to Hollywood via the San Diego auditions – said she hit her head, though that was not confirmed.

Fox used the accident to tease Thursday night’s show, promising an update on Black’s injuries as Hollywood Week continues. SOURCE

Fox know they wrong for teasing us with the update on Symone’s condition BUT I’ll be watching (AND YOU WILL TOO!!!)  I want to know what happened and if she moves on. She sounded great by the way. Get well girl!

The Real Preacher Wives Of Atlanta?

The Learning Channel (TLC) announced  yesterday that it’s partnering with True Entertainment, the production company behind The Real Housewives of Atlanta, for a new reality series with the working title Preacher Wives. It will follow the “First Ladies” of Atlanta area churches.

“We are excited to work with TLC to profile the lives of these strong-willed women,” True Entertainment president Steven Weinstock says. “With most praise in religious communities directed towards male preachers, we are thrilled to give these remarkable ladies the spotlight they crave and deserve.”

The series will not only follow the women as they play out their role as preacher’s wives in the congregation, but also give a view of their home lives and how they balance both roles.

True Entertainment’s Weinstock and Glenda Hersh will serve as executive producers. The production company’s projects also include OWN’s Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes and Unfaithful, Logo’s The A-List,  and Bravo’s Platinum Hit. TLC did not announce a projected airdate.

The series marks the network’s entre into the type of programming that has become the half-billion dollar reality gold of the Real Housewives franchise for Bravo, a formula that has been picked up by several other networks like VH1 and its Basketball Wives. SOURCE

Would you watch? I know I am! There will be foolery, so for the super sanctified this may not be the program for you. True Ent will not have a boring, all aboout Jesus and the kingdom type of show. After watching I might have to ask for repentance.

Speaking of preacher’s, take a look at this foolery/mockery/sham here…there are no words!

Eddie, I beg of you, take that smedium piece of carpet off of your head! You look like Karl from Slingblade!

 

Tamar Braxton and Vince Herbert Getting Own Show

Tamar Braxton and her hubby Vincent Herbert are getting their very own show.com! 🙂

Looks like Tamar won’t have to doo-wop-pop-pop anymore for her sister,  Toni Braxton…cause DAT AIN’T HOT.COM/ORG/NET/BIZ/EDU/GOV!!! LOL

When Sister 2 Sister sat down with Trina, Traci and Towanda Braxton for the December issue, they ladies exclusively dished that Tamar and Vince will star in their own reality series, set to air next year.

I can only take Tamar in small doses because we all know she is over the top.org and can come off a bit bratty. I agree with Toni that this new-found stardom has gone to her head and she doesn’t know how to manage it…to each it’s very own! It will be interesting to see the dynamics of the relationship…everybody knows (in my Phaedra voice) there is no romantic chemistry. We shall see!

 

Braxton Family Values Episode 3 Sneak Peek: A Snooping Dog

There are 3 people “I cannot” with in this episode…I’m pretty sure you know who the first one is 😀

Tamar, Tamar, Tamar…I understand you don’t want to sing background for ever amen but let me let you in on a little secret, no one is really checking for you like that. Your obnoxious attitude clearly only works on the small screen and you don’t have the humility to listen to sound advice. Had to get that out the way! LOL

In this clip, we see that Tamar is starting to “break away” from the group of sisters to focus on her solo career and be, well Tamar… loud, wrong and bossy. Towanda’s husband is writing a book titled 69 Ways To A Better Relationship…how about 69 ways to be a man and provide for your family Andre. Finally, we see Trina’s insecure/cheating husband going around stalking her every move because he fears his reaping will be the same as his sowing. Putting a GPS on her phone like he works for OnStar is not going to work.com/org/edu/gov/net/biz!

You can watch the lovely ladies on WETv Thursdays at 9/8c

Kourtney Kardashian and longtime boyfriend Scott Disick are expecting their second child.  The two have been together for four years and will  soon be celebrating son Mason’s birthday as he turns 2 on Dec. 14.

The 32-year old reality star and entrepreneur made the announcement on the cover of Us Weekly, saying she took a pregnancy test about five weeks ago. “Now I’m nine weeks along,” she said. “You’re supposed to wait 12 weeks to tell people, but I feel confident.”

Kourtney just started a mommy blog, shooting videos that give tips and tricks to new mothers based on her time raising Mason.

Out of all of the gals, I like her the most. Best of luck! 🙂

T.I. And Tiny: A Family Hustle Sneak Peek

My favorite hip-hop couple is back on tv and in the sneak peek of T.I. & Tiny‘s new reality show, we see T.I. disciplining his children about calling themselves light skinned and not white and playing “booty tag” with girls, having a funny and romantic dinner with wife Tameka, fights at the club, and teaching his son how to perform.

 “I got 6 kids and my old lady depending on my hustle,” T.I. said in the sneak peek.  I can’t make 1 single mistake.  Family is priority #1.  Now that I’m back home, I’m gonna make sure we’re a bigger and better family than ever before.”

He adds: “The most important thing to me in the world: God, family, hustle, in that order.”

The show airs on Dec. 5 on VH1

New TLC Series Highlights Muslim Community

 TLC has a new show in its lineup this fall called All-American Muslim.

The show features five families from Dearborn, Michigan, a city near Detroit with one of the highest concentrations of Arab descendants in the country. All of the main characters were born and raised in the U.S., and their daily dramas are the stuff of scrapbooks everywhere: getting married, having a baby, opening a new business.

“People need to learn our stories,” said Nawal Aoude, a pediatric respiratory therapist. “People need to learn who we are. The only time people see Muslims in the media, they are cast in a negative light.”

Cast members said they agreed to be part of the series to show the diversity of the Muslim community and, in the post-Sept. 11th world, illustrate that other Americans need not fear the Muslims in their presence.

Unfortunately, people still seem to have a problem with Muslim-Americans and a Facebook page has been made to boycott the show. It’s 2011 and people still think that “all” Muslims are terrorist, what a shame!

Hopefully this show will be an eye-opener to such ignorant people. The season premiere is this Sunday at 10/9c. Will you be watching? I will!

20 Kids and Counting

Earlier this morning, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar annouced that they are expecting their 20th child on the Today Show.

“We are so excited,” Michelle Duggar told TODAY Moms before the broadcast. Now three and a half months pregnant, the mom of 19 says she was actually surprised to discover that she’s expecting again at 45. “I was not thinking that God would give us another one, and we are just so grateful.”

During Michelle’s last pregnancy, she had to deliver her baby three and a half months early due to gall-bladder problems as well as preeclampsia. She stated that her doctors have given her the green light for this pregnancy, and so far she hasn’t had any health worries. 

For the past year, she said, she’s been working out five or six days a week: “I’m really in better shape than I’ve been in 20 years.”

The Duggars 19 children range in age from 23 yrs old to 23 months. Bless her heart real good! 🙂

The 29-year-old Trinidad and Tobago native/beauty queen beat out fellow designers Victor Luna, Josh McKinley and Kimberly Goldson.

 

For the finale, fashion designer L’Wren Scott joined Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia on the judging panel at Lincoln Center as the finalists showed their ten piece collections as part of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. Anya’s collection (‘Tobago Love) was  inspired by her life in Trinidad with her parents and dedicated to her brother Pilau, who passed away and who encouraged her to pursue her dreams to be a designer.

“What an absolute dream come true!” she said following her win. “It’s a turning point in my life and I will never, ever be able to forget this moment!”

Her winnings consist of $100,000 from L’Oréal Paris, an editorial feature in Marie Claire magazine, a $50,000 technology suite and the opportunity to sell her line on Piperlime.com.
