Welp, I guess it was only a matter of time. Mariah Carey and her BFF collaborator Jermaine Dupri have decided to end their artist/manager relationship. Basically, she fired him because his work as executive producer of her new album I Am Mariah … The Elusive Chanteuse was a huge failure. Despite the fact that Dupri talked up the album as much as possible in the press, the album has sold poorly since its release in May and has fallen completely off the Billboard magazine Top 200 album chart. Jermaine says that he and Mimi will work together again in the future, which is very possible. Mimi, for her part, has already set her sights on a new managerial team moving forward. More »
With his creepy ass...
Of all the bizarre celebrity stories we’ve experienced this year, Robin Thicke‘s whole Paula movement has probably been the most annoying. The music videos have been desperate, cheesy, desperate attempts to reconcile with/apologize to his estranged wife for his [reportedly] cheatin’ ass and it’s all been pretty sad to witness. I think most of us have been cringing on behalf of Paula Patton, but it sounds like Robin is ready to ease up off her a bit. Maybe it’s the Paula album sales (or lack thereof), maybe he’s just exhausted himself, but folks are saying he’s admitting that the marriage is over. Click inside for more.
Remember last September when Jenny McCarthy joined the cast of The View as the newest co-host of the show? Well, according to a new report, she has been fired from the show … along with longtime co-host Sherri Shepard. Barbara Walters already retired from the show, leaving only Whoopi Goldberg left on the show. I don’t watch the show nor do I pay much attention so I’m not sure if Jenny has been a bad co-host all season long but I know for a fact that Sherri Shepard confessed on air that she wasn’t sure if the earth was round — or flat — so … her ignorant ass should’ve been fired ages ago, IMHO. Read on for all the known/reported deets about this bloodbath at The View and find out who might be added as replacement co-hosts. More »
A few days ago we got to see a cute photo of our dear Britney Spears posing with her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James as they kicked off their summer vacation together. You may have noticed that Britney‘s boyfriend David Lucado was not included in the photo. I noticed but, honestly, didn’t think anything of it. Today we are hearing rumors that Britney and David are dunzo. HMMM. Britney and David seemed to be just fine when they holidayed together in Hawai’i back in April so … could the couple really be dunzo? More »
He blames Kristeen Young for getting him sick, She denies the claim
Early last month Morrissey kicked off a new US tour in support of the forthcoming release of his new album World Peace is None of Your Business. I was lucky enough to see Morrissey perform live in Santa Ana and in Los Angeles, CA a few weeks ago and was looking forward to seeing him a third time this coming weekend in Flint, MI. Unfortunately, I will not be seeing Moz in concert this weekend because last night he cancelled the remaining dates of his tour due to a reported “illness”. And because everything Morrissey-related has to be dramatic, there’s a bit of controversy surrounding his tour cancellation. Moz is blaming his illness on his opening act Kristeen Young, saying that because she got him sick he had to cancel the tour. Kristeen is fighting back by making very clear that she did not get Morrissey sick, revealing that she was fired from the tour so that she could be made the scapegoat. DRAMA, thy name is Morrissey. Click below to read the he said/she said surrounding the death of Morrissey‘s US tour. More »

The couple lasted 2 years longer than many expected
For the past few weeks it has been rumored that pop star Jennifer Lopez and her much younger toy boy Casper Smart were on the outs and today we learn that the couple have, indeed, called it quits. After 2 years together, J. Lo and Casper have decided to end their relationship because according to sources, things just “ran their course”. To be honest, I didn’t really expect that these two would stay together for as long as they did so you deff have to give them props for making a serious go at being together. But, alas, as with all good things … the romance of J. Lo and Casper has come to and end. More »
They're still friends tho
Back in 2011 we learned that Twilight actress Nikki Reed and American Idol contestant Paul McDonald got themselves engaged to be married. They couple said their I Dos in July of 2011 and then managed to stay happily together … until about 6 months ago when the couple moved into separate homes and then decided to break up back in March. Today we learn that the unhappily marrieds have now decided to divorce. They’re dunzo, y’all. More »

'The Untitled Michael Sam Project' is dunzo!
Earlier this week it was announced that Michael Sam agreed to be filmed for a new docu-series on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN channel in order to document the real life events that will take place as he begins his new life as St. Louis Rams football player. Today we learn that those plans have been put on hold. As soon as the project was announced, many people (PITNB readers included) voiced concern that a docu-series of this nature might prove to be a distraction not only for Sam but for his football teammates as well. It sounds like Michael Sam took that criticism to heart and decided NOT to move forward with the project … at least, not any time soon. More »
The day I long feared was coming … has come. The CW has announced which of its shows have been renewed for more seasons and which shows have been cancelled. It is with a very sad, very heavy heart that I must pass along the news that The CW has decided to cancel The Carrie Diaries. I, personally, am crushed by this news. I loved the show from the very start and loved each episode of the two seasons that we got. The addition of Lindsay Gort as Samantha Jones last season gave me hope that the show would live on for a third season but, alas, it wasn’t meant to be. And so, I have to give a sad Peace the Spork Out to The Carrie Diaries with a heavy dose of BOOOOOOOO! More »

The art of letting go?
So … take this report with a huge grain of salt but according to OK! magazine, Mariah Carey is reportedly ready to “pull the plug” on her marriage to Nick Cannon. HMMM. As you may recall, the Mr. & Mrs. celebrated their wedding anniversary just last week and all indications were that things are A-OK in the couple’s marriage. But this new report makes the bold claim that Mimi is ready to dump Nick and fly free again. I can’t say that I believe a word of this new rumor but … HMMMM. More »
