Brooke Burke-Charvet Fired From Dancing With The Stars

Looks like Brooke Burke-Charvet has been eliminated. After eight seasons serving as co-host on Dancing With the Stars, the actress has been dropped from the show!

“We can confirm that Brooke Burke-Charvet will not be joining us next season,” Conrad Green, executive producer of DWTS told Us Weekly in a statement. “She’s been a wonderful part of the Dancing with the Stars family since her triumphant win in season seven and will unquestionably be missed by our entire team. We’d like to thank Brooke for her years of great service.”

This is what Brooke had to say after hearing the news on Twitter:

Brooke first hit the show as a contestant alongside Derek Hough in season 7, taking home the beloved mirror ball trophy. She started hosting with Tom Bergeron in Season 10.

This isn’t the only shakeup that those behind the show have cooked up. Music director Harold Wheeler and the 28 members of his band that backed the dancers since the very beginning of the show!

I don’t know what’s going on at ABC, and what the network’s game plan is for the coming season, but I hope these changes don’t blow up in folks’ faces!

Tamera Mowry-Housley Controversy Talks Criticism Surrounding Her Interracial Marriage

tamara

Tamera Mowry-Housley makes an appearance on the Bethenny show to talk about the controversy surrounding her interracial marriage to husband Adam Mosely. And the prejudice isn’t just from one race, she’s getting it from all kinds. She says she’s been called a “white man’s whore” and “less of a black woman” because of her marriage.

So what does she think about the hatred?

Well quite frankly, she’s sick of it!

tamara1

Check out highlights from the interview below:

Bethenny: Your mom is black and ur father is white?
Tamera: Yes. My mom is a beautiful black woman and my father is a very handsome white man.
Bethenny: So you are interracial?
Tamera: Well I’m mixed, I’m bi-racial yes, and I’m in an interracial marriage, yes.
Bethenny: And you’ve gotten a lot of heat for that.
Tamera: Which is so weird.
Bethenny: More than most people do you feel like cause I don’t hear it as much.
Tamera: Really girl?
Bethenny: We’re talking about it with you because I know it’s something that you’ve dealt with.
Tamera: Yeah, I hear it from a lot of my friends, even my makeup artist. She’s in an interracial relationship and she gets it. I think maybe because social media is what it is right now. I have a Twitter account and people feel like they can just come to it and say whatever but I’ve learned to love my block button and I’m just choosing to see the positive side of it. We have more people loving on us than hating on us and we are choosing to focus on that now.
Bethenny: It’s amazing that something like Twitter which represents the most modern form of technology, that the things that people are saying on it are the most archaic feelings in the world. Right, I mean it’s ironic.
Tamera: Please they don’t even know me, they don’t know my friends.
Bethenny: But what does that even matter? What about if you had all black friends or all white friends? What does it even matter?
Tamera: Honestly, who cares? That’s where I’m at right now? Do you know by the year 2050 Time Magazine says that most people are going to be mixed so honestly the people who are posting those things need to get over it. They need to get hip!

ON HER RACIST CRITICS:

I was actually hurt because my parents had experienced it way back in the day and I was hurt because we as a community have come so far and we fight against it all the time. I was hurt that people still felt that way but the opposite way, you see what I’m saying? So if anything, I was devastated, hurt, and like I said I’m just going to pray and look at the positive.

I still can’t get over the fact that there are such ignorant, hateful people out there. So ridiculous!

Marc Anthony On Friendship With Casper Smart, “He fulfills a very very very important role”

2012 Winter TCA Tour - Day 11

Apparently Marc Anthony is totally okay with Casper Smart taking on the role of Jennifer Lopez’s lover and fill in daddy for his kids. And that is great that there is no “bad blood” between the two men.

Via Extra TV:

“Extra’s” AJ Calloway sat down with Marc Anthony, who opened up about his relationship with ex-wife Jennifer Lopez and her boyfriend, Casper Smart.

Anthony said he doesn’t understand why people are surprised that he and Smart get along. “I don’t know what they expect, but Jennifer and I have a responsibility to the kids and so does Casper. He fulfills a very, very important role. My children love him and respect him and so do I.”

Marc continued, “I get it, he gets it, we get it… we really bonded. He’s a really good guy, solid guy.” The singer jokingly added, “Until he f**ks it up, that’s my story.”

Anthony also talked about twins Max and Emme’s upcoming 6th birthday. “We have a big one. It’s at this place that we rented out with trampolines and all that good stuff.”

Marc’s love for children is apparent in his work with Maestro Cares Foundation, which benefits homeless and neglected children in developing Latin American countries. Anthony, who was at the First Annual “Changing Lives, Building Dreams” gala for the foundation, explained, “They are my kids… I have 105 kids now.”

chrissy-teigen

The world’s most gorgeous women came together last night at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Beach House in NYC to celebrate five decades of beauty and bikinis, as they celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. To honor this rare occasion, guests had the opportunity to sip Crown Royal XO cocktails, perfect for commemorating “extraordinary” moments like 50 years in print.

chrissy-teigen1

After walking the carpet with husband John Legend, Chrissy Teigen toasted to her first SI Swimsuit cover with Captain Morgan White Rum cocktails, celebrating with Legend and the rest of the models in attendance.

In addition to appearing on the pages of one of the most iconic magazines of all time, Teigen will also be featured on Jimmy Kimmel’s “3 Ridiculous Questions” segment, airing tonight on ABC. If you’re not familiar, it’s a regular segment Kimmel shoots where he asks high-profile guests three “ridiculous” questions that warrants unique (and oftentimes humorous responses). Well one of the questions involves toilets and Chrissy’s answer is pretty good. All I have to say is John Legend better pony up some cash for Teigen’s bottom!

Andy Roddick Gets Hard Serve To The Groin (VIDEO)

53450397AW006_RODDICK

On the day before Valentine’s Day, Andy Roddick made his debut on the PowerShares Series tennis circuit in Birmingham, Alabama and was welcomed on the legends tennis tour with a hard serve right into the groin by Australian hunk Mark Philippoussis, former star of the “Age of Love” reality show.

Roddick, whose wife Brooklyn Decker is a swimsuit model, shook off the threat to the family jewels and beat Philippoussis 6-3 in the one-set semifinal, then beat John McEnroe 7-5 in the championship match.

“It was awkward,” Roddick said of the direct hit inflicted by Philippoussis. “That hurt. It really did.” Roddick later predicted that the video of the episode would probably be aired “27 times” on Fox Sports Live, the sports television show he now reports for.

A hit to the baby maker?!!! OUCH!

ouch

Cee Lo Green Is Done With The Voice For Good!

Cee Lo Green is moving on! After four seasons on NBC reality singing competition The Voice, the singer has announced that he won’t be returning to the show….ever!

“I’m going to continue my relationship with NBC,” he said in an appearance on the Feb. 19 episode of Ellen.   “I have a television show development deal with them as well and hopefully some other talk show opportunities for later in the year. But yeah, I’m going to miss The Voice too. So I’m not coming back guys.”

Ellen DeGeneres asked Cee Lo to clarify. “I’m not coming back at all,” he said. “I don’t want to wear out my welcome there. You know what I’m saying. I have so many other things that I want to do. I haven’t released an album in four years. I’m almost done with my album.”

Lionel Richie joined Cee Lo on the show, and they made the announcement that they’ll also be going on tour together! “He’ll be with me, on the road,” Lionel chimed in.

Cee Lo was one of the original four mentors on The Voice sitting with Adam LevineBlake Shelton and Christina Aguilera. Both he and Christina were judges for seasons 1-3. Shakira and Usher took their spots for season 4, but they came back for season 5.

I don’t watch The Voice often, but there’s definitely a lot of talent there that Cee Lo has been a part of helping to groom. I’m sure he’ll be missed, but I’m ready to see what he has cooking up in the music realm!

LeBron James Snags the March Cover for GQ, Responds to His Critics

NBA baller LeBron James was looking sharp on the cover of the March issue of GQ! In his interview, LeBron went in about his critics, his life as a husband to wife Savannah, and what he learned about the controversy behind him leaving Cleveland for the Miami Heat. Check out some of his answers below!

On not being selfish (despite his critics saying otherwise)

“Like, I could average thirty-five points a game if I really wanted to,” he says. He is beautifully handsome, solid and smooth as a sycamore. “But then—it wouldn’t be me,” he says. “So I don’t know if I could do it, because of my instincts. I see a teammate open—even if I have a great shot—I see a teammate open for a better shot, I gotta feed him. It’s like, my mind sometimes be like ‘Shoot it,’ but then—my instincts, you know?”

Fatherhood, he says, is a lot like sports. “Being a leader of my household, a leader of Miami, a leader of Team USA. It’s the same exact thing. You can sense when a guy is frustrated—maybe doesn’t feel involved enough in the offense. As leader you go over to him, you know, ‘How can I help?’ Because at the end of the day, we all have one common goal—and that’s to be great.”

On why he’s proud that he’s changed, like haters criticize him for doing

“Good! That’s like a good thing,” he says. “I’m like, ‘Thank you.’ Shit. I’m 29 years old with a family—I’m married with a family. I—of course I’ve changed. The problem is, you haven’t changed. And that’s why you dislike what I do, you know.”

“As an African-American, we hear it a lot where we grow up. You’ve changed.” He’s sick of hearing it used as a criticism. “Because you’ve tried to better yourself and because you’ve made it out. ‘You’re not the same person that we used to know.’ Of course I’m not. I’m trying to better myself. Change is not a bad thing. Thinking that it’s bad, you know, that’s one thing I think is a downfall for African-Americans for sure.”

On thanking his father for NOT being around

“Like, ‘Wow, Dad, you know what, I don’t know you, I have no idea who you are, but because of you is part of the reason who I am today.’ The fuel that I use—you not being there—it’s part of the reason I grew up to become who I am. It’s part of the reason why I want to be hands-on with my endeavors. And be able to put my guys that’s with me now in position. Like Maverick Carter, my right-hand guy in my business. Rich Paul, my agent. Randy Mims, my friend—he’s my manager, you know. So me in a position allowing people around me to grow, that maybe wouldn’t have happened if I had two parents, two sisters, a dog, and a picket fence, you know?”

On what he learned from all the controversy he caused with The Decision

“The best thing that ever happened to me,” he says. “I needed it. It helped me grow as a man. As a professional, as a father. At the time, as a boyfriend. It helped me grow. Being confined, I spent my whole life in Akron, Ohio. For twenty-five years. Even though I played professionally in Cleveland, I still lived in Akron. Everything was comfortable. I knew everything, everybody knew me—everything was comfortable. I needed to become uncomfortable.”

“Now I’ve seen everything on and off the floor this league has to offer,” he says. “I got an answer for everything. Winning, losing, being a free agent, staying, leaving, media, media down on you, media big up on you, agents, money, parking it, family, money. All, everything. So whatever your question is, I can deliver.”

On why people like Miley don’t need to be attention grabbers

“Miley Cyrus? She has a great voice! She don’t need the shenanigans. She can have some of the shenanigans, but not all of the shenanigans, you know? And she can be at peace! She can be at peace.  Shenanigans.”

Michelle Duggar’s 7 Bedroom Tips

michelle-duggar

Michelle Duggar, mother of 19 (at least I think it is 19 now?) and counting is one that knows about hanky panky and being the ultimate clown car. But most importantly Mrs. Duggar knows how to make JimBob happy…in the bedroom. Mmmhmmm. How do you think she got pregnant? A LOT of practice.

In a recent interview, Mrs. Duggar shared what she has learned over the years and the advice from friends that she took when she and her hubs got married.

From Today.com, here are Michelle Duggar’s 7 Bedroom Tips.

1. Say yes to sex, even when you’re tired. It’s about the physical need of love your husband has and only you can meet that need.

2. Give it a rest sometimes. The couple has learned that a bit of abstinence makes the heart grow fonder.

3. Treat your wife like a queen. Emotional intimacy is important. Doing the little things are big things. She does the same for Jim Bob.

4. The strong, silent type is overrated. Men who share their heart, struggles, fears and dreams “builds him up so much in my eyes.”

5. Perfectionism kills romance. “Expectations ruin relationships,” says Jim Bob. Don’t withhold praise for loved ones.

6. Make time for date night. Every Saturday, apparently Michelle and Jim Bob go out to reconnect (and then, I am sure hit the sheets!)

7. Never stop learning. Advice from others and each other is still important.

Is she pregnant again? I’m just asking.

Kate Hudson, Janelle Monae Talk Neon Green Lips and Diddy

Kate Hudson and Janelle Monáe are featured in the March issue of Marie Claire (on newsstands now). Could these two women be anymore beautiful?!

katehudson

Kate is this month’s Beauty Icon and shares her look-fab secrets with readers and her thoughts on modern beauty.

KATE HUDSON:
“I’ll see someone with white eyebrows and neon-green lips and go, ‘Isn’t she amazing? My friends would probably be like, ‘No, she’s crazy,’ but it’s not in my nature to be judgmental.”

“When I was 18, I took my mom to a natural spa in Bali, and we ended up in these baths that were just filled with all of these flowers. It was insane. We had one of the biggest laughs we’ve ever had. It was like, ‘Uh, can I have some water with my flower petals?”

On wig pins: “It’s almost like a joke with my friends because they always see my hair in a high bun. I like to put it up with the big wig pins.”

On Egyptian Magic All Purpose skin cream: “My go-to skincare—I use it for everything.”

janelle-monae

Janelle is profiled as a “passionista,” women who are rewriting the rules of success, and forging killer careers on their own terms.

JANELLE MONÁE:

“The only training I had was calling ‘living-room training” [performing at home with her great-grandmother. “She would play these scary chords on the organ, and I would just sing and make up church songs.”

On Sean “Diddy” Combs: he serves mainly as her “professional slapper. He’s there to talk to any suits that dare to mess up the jam and the music.”

On her signature style which is a protest of sorts again the sexualization of female musicians: “There were no women who performed fully clothed – still to this day there aren’t. To me, that was a problem, to say, ‘If you want to be in the music industry, you need to be able to sell sex…I want to be in control of my body. I don’t ever want a man or woman to tell me to dress that way. I think it’s up to me.”

On outfit planning: “If I have to think about my outfit longer than, like, two minutes, I’ve waster time. Who wants to think about ‘What am I going to wear at this performance?’ I need to be focused on creating, changing the world.”

New Light Shed On Military Family Suicide Crisis

adm-mike-mullen

Four years ago, Deborah Mullen, wife of the highest ranking military officer in the United States and then Joint Chief of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, brought the nation’s attention to the silent crisis of suicide that is affecting military family members across the country.

Although, suicide rates amongst service members have been tracked by the military for years, the subsequent suicides among their family members have not. Losing a loved one unexpectedly is certainly a traumatic time for any family but if the reason for losing that loved one is suicide, without support, it can be near impossible to accept and overcome.

“All I wanted to do was end my life. I know I’m not alone. I’ve talked to other parents, other family members. We are hurting and someone must do something,”recalls Scott Warner. His son, Heath Warner was an Army private who, at only 19, was killed by a bomb in Al Anbar province in Iraq in November of 2006.

The National Military Family Association is one of many groups who have pushed for the Pentagon’s Defense Suicide Prevention Office to finally send a report to Congress outlining a proposal for tracking the suicides of military family members. Through tracking, a greater awareness of the problem of suicides among military family members can in turn aid in bringing much needed help to those that feel that taking their own life is the only answer left to end the pain or hopelessness that they feel. These feelings can be the result of losing a military service family member to war or conflict or even an extension to the PTSD or depression that their military service family members are feeling upon their return from deployment.

There are many options that military family members can take if they are or someone they know is having thoughts of suicide. Although suicide itself is an intricate subject to approach, it is a problem that needs to be addressed in order for it to be fixed. Prevention begins with awareness.

Military service members and their family can seek assistance and information through Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 (press 1).

It is important that drugs and alcohol be avoided throughout the process of recovery as they impair rational thinking, which is detrimental to those suffering with thoughts of suicide.

Despite the fact there are limited government programs implemented to address suicide amongst military family members, there are national programs found throughout the United States that employ mental health professionals and doctors who are available for referrals and advice. By reaching out for support, whether face to face or anonymously over the phone, a greater perspective can be gained on the core root of the problem while aiding in overcoming the inner trauma which causes suicidal thoughts.

Overall, services provided to members of the military and their families need to be re-evaluated and better funded. All too often our citizens become soldiers and march off into battle only to face medical hardships, financial issues and a lack of support on their return home.

Lil Kim’s Baby Daddy Reveals Gender Of Baby!

mr.papers

Lil Kim’s baby daddy Mr. Papers is sure happy as heck to reveal himself. After confirming that she is in fact pregnant, we were starting to wonder if Lil Kim was still with Papers or if this was just a one time fling. Obviously this baby bump is real and Mr. Papers is basically shouting from the rooftop that this baby is his.

And he even revealed the gender. It’s a BOY!

He told Radaronline.com, “That’s my baby… He’ll be taken care of,” Mr. Papers told Radar.

Even though he isn’t married to Lil Kim, he did say that they are dating. “We together,” Papers said.

As for Kim? “Kim is doing great. That baby is going to be well taken care of… rocking Tom Ford, Versace — even the stroller will be designer.” Well, let me tell you something…hearing that sure makes my heart feel better about this whole situation.

Hey Mr. Papers, let’s just hope the baby comes out healthy first. Then we can worry about the Tom Ford and Versace. Mmmkay? Here’s hoping Mr. Papers has that paper and TIME to take care of this little baby boy once it arrives. I’m sure all Kim wants is a man to be around for her baby. She’s got the money to buy the kid what he needs.
