Over the weekend many celebrities and entertainment dignitaries were in town for the BET Hip Hop Awards. One of the stars I spoke with was comedian Alex Thomas (pictured 2nd from left), whom you may remember from the hit 2001 movie Two Can Play That Game with actress Vivica A. Fox.

Well, Thomas and Fox have teamed up again to star in the hilarious comedy TV series Mr. Box Office, which airs Saturday nights at 9 p.m. on the CW Network (check your local listings).

Mr. Box Office is a comedy sitcom about "the biggest star in the world" who is sentenced to community service, teaching English at the "toughest" high school in America.

There are two things that should never be discussed at the dinner table: politics and gay marriage. NBC's scripted series The New Normal covers all of that and more.

In Tuesday's episode (which we can argue is nothing but a campaign vehicle for Obama), Bryan (Andrew Rannells) and David (Justin Bartha) threw a dinner party to prove to Nana (Ellen Barkin) that they have black friends. The idea for the dinner came up after Nana (whose family has always voted Republican) accused Bryan and David of being racist because they voted for Obama. Her reasoning was the gay couple voted for Obama because he was black, hence, they must be racist.

America's children are starving as a result of the controversial mandated National school lunch policy, which is the brain child of the first lady Michelle Obama.

Mrs. Obama is fighting obesity by forcing children to subsist on vegetables, fruit, whole grains and nuts.

But a group of students are protesting what they see as forced starvation diets. They say they are hungry and they're not taking the school lunch policy sitting down.

In a video uploaded to YouTube.com, hungry students faint from lack of energy after eating the 750-850 calories that Mrs. Obama's school lunches provide.

The children argue that the low calories are not enough to meet the physical needs of growing teenagers.

I can't stop laughing at these two fools! They will do anything to promote their wack reality show.

From TMZ.com:

Evelyn Lozada, one of the stars of VH1's "Basketball Wives."

Former Phoenix Suns star Steve Nash is now a Los Angeles Laker thanks to a new sign-and-trade deal that will send the free-agent point guard to the Lakers for future draft picks.

But the deal almost didn't happen according to Nash in a statement to ESPN's Marc Stein.

In the statement Nash said he approached Suns owner Robert Sarver and president of basketball operations Lon Babby and asked them to make the trade happen with LA so he could be closer to his children.

“I approached them and asked if they would be willing to do a sign and trade deal with L.A. because it is very important to me to stay near my children and family. They were very apprehensive and didn’t want to do it. Fortunately for me, they reconsidered.”

New viral video puts a spin on the teen gay "It gets better" campaign.

In the video, guys (and a girl) assure socially awkward teenage boys that a certain part of their anatomy will get bigger. "If there's one thing that we need to pass along to these young boys in the most difficult point of their lives, it's this: it's gonna get bigger."

Watch the video after the break. Caution: video contains profane language.

9-time Grammy winner Mary J Blige probably never thought she would become a punch line at this stage in her career. Unfortunately, Mary now finds herself the laughing stock of the industry, after Burger King inadvertently released an unfinished commercial featuring Mary that went viral.

What could have possessed Mary to jump up on a table top and sing the immortal words, "crispy chicken, fresh lettuce, three cheeses, French dressing, wrapped up in a tasty flour tortilla"?

Whatever her motivation was, you can bet Mary regrets signing on to do that commercial.

Now, Mary's fans are uploading their own YouTube videos spoofing Mary's Burger King ad.

And Hot 97 in New York is holding a 'Chicken Idol' Crispy Chicken battle, and inviting celebrities such as 'Love & Hip Hop's Yandy Smith to do their own Mary J impression.

Watch the hilarity after the break.

Kids say the darnedest things, but does that mean they are ready to be thrust into the pressure cooker of the entertainment industry? We find out in last night's episode, as T.I. and Tiny decide that their two youngest boys are too cute not to be on TV. T.I. and Tiny fly the boys to LA where they audition for a talent scout and pose for a professional photo shoot.

My favorite scene in the episode is when T.I. asks his youngest son Major why he thinks he [T.I.] is his daddy. "Because you're out of jail," the precocious 3-year-old responds.

"They might be too young," says Tiny, very wisely. She reasons that King, who is 7, "really wanted this opportunity." But does he really? And who should decide what a child really wants or needs -- the child or his parents?
