Mark Your Calendars
The time to rejoice is now, friends … because Showtime has announced the premiere date of the new seasons of Dexter and Homeland. Mark your calendars for Sunday September 30 because that is the day that Dexter returns for season 7 and Homeland returns for season 2. Without question, Dexter has been one of my favorite shows (if not THE favorite) of the past 6 seasons and I am really excited for its return. I fell in love with Homeland almost immediately last year when the show debuted on Showtime and I am really looking forward to picking up the story where it left off on the season 1 finale.

"I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me"
Bobbi Kristina Brown, the only begotten child of the late Whitney Houston, was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Next Chapter last night exactly one month to the day that Whitney tragically died here in LA. Oprah‘s interview with Bobbi Kris was a powerful one and, as I understand it, was BK‘s first solo interview ever with anyone. Throughout the course of the interview, Bobbi Kristina revealed that she has found comfort in being able to communicate with her late mother “in spirit”. Many people deal with grief in varying ways, for Bobbi Kris, her coping mechanism allows her to keep contact with her late mother.

Is It Funny to Laugh at Stereotypes?
Last night Jonah Hill hosted this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live (and was mildly entertaining, nothing at all special or worth talking about, to be honest) … one of the skits caught my attention … and not for the right reasons. One of the skits featured an all caucasian cast poking fun at Japanese J-Pop culture that started out cute and funny, IMHO, but as the stereotypes kept adding up … felt more and more … wrong. Click below to check out the skit and see what I mean. More »

Rumor Has It Britney Wants $20 Mil!
Earlier this week we learned the exciting news that our dear Britney Spears was nearing a deal that would bring her on board to judge the upcoming second season of The X Factor here in the US for a reported $10 million dollars. BUT, a new report out this weekend claims that Britney has rejected the $10 million offer because she wants $20 million instead. So as it stands, if this report is to be believed, there is NO DEAL in place right now for Britney to join The X Factor … unless Team Britney and Team X Factor can meet somewhere in the middle of 20 & 10 million. HMMM. I wonder who will blink first and cave to make this deal happen. More »

Will 'Will' Make It?
Saturday Night Live alum Will Forte has been cast as the lead in the new comedy pilot for Fox called Rebounding. It is all about a man, Will, who is dealing with the death of his fiancé and relies on his basketball buddies to get through it. Even though it sounds dark and sad, it has been described as an uplifting comedy. For me, Will is now Jenna Maroney’s hilarious cross-dressing boyfriend on 30 Rock, but Will is actually going to be around a lot this year as he is starring in 3 movies coming out over summer, Rock of Ages, That’s My Boy and Neighborhood Watch.
