Keke Palmer Set To Host Daily TV Show

Keke Palmer is making serious moves in the industry! The actress, in connection with BET and Telepictures, will host her own TV show geared towards young adults this summer!

The series, tentatively called The Keke Palmer Project, was picked up for an initial four-week run, and will premiere in July, airing Mondays-Fridays. Judge Greg Mathis, whose own show Judge Mathis is produced by Telepictures, will be executive producer over the project, after being heavily involved in bringing this deal together.

The show will cover various topics, including fashion, pop culture, social issues, celebrity interviews, and more. The idea for the show, Keke acknowledged, stems from her interaction on social media with her fans. “I like to read quotes that touch on how I am feeling,” she said. “If I am dealing with confusion, I will read quotes about clarity and peace of mind. I started posting these quotes on my Twitter page, and the fans responded so positively! I realized that many of them were dealing with similar issues, and the quotes helped to open up a genuine dialogue between us.”

When the show airs, Keke will become the youngest talk show host in TV history (currently, it’s Ricki Lake, who was 25 when she started her talk show).

Congrats to Keke! It’s very well deserved, and I’m definitely excited for it. Keke is a very positive and talented celeb, and I’m ready to see what she’s come up with for this show!

Real House Husbands of Hollywood Cast Bobby Brown

It’s not like people won’t watch this and probably laugh at parts that would be considered high drama, but now comes word that Bobby Brown, who made quite the name for himself years ago on his previous reality show, is looking to get back into the business of reality by appearing inlala. The R&B singer was featured in a skit of the show on BET a couple of years back and apparently that applause and laughter has led to his casting.

Lala Anthony, wife of NBA star Carmelo Anthony, also will appear in season two and this promises to be epic viewing for all the wrong reasons.

Stay tuned!!

DMX has ten kids.

We all know that DMX gets himself into trouble more than Lindsay Lohan and if anyone is looking for him, the obvious answer is “jail, bitches”. But who knew that DMX had time to make babies?

Well my friends, outside of spending time behind bars, he spends a lot of time in between the sheets. The guy recently shared the news of his TENTH (yes, as in TEN) child whom he named after his good friend Aaliyah.

Details below.
