Love & Hip Hop Atlanta

Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta is going downhill fast. The acting skills of the cast members makes it difficult to believe a word that's coming out of their mouths. Only the gullible believe that Nikko Smith leaked his and Mimi Faust's video to a gossip blog. We all know the video was filmed by a production CREW -- not with a cell phone.

K. Michelle Thinks She Deserves a Grammy

Love & Hip Hop: NY cast member K. Michelle believes her latest album is good enough to earn her a Grammy nod. But the Grammy folks don't think so -- and for good reason: she sucks!

K. Michelle's 2nd recording contract with RCA Records in 2011 ended abruptly due to her abrasive attitude.

NBC Cancels The New Normal

NBC quietly canceled its groundbreaking gay sitcom "The New Normal" after just one season on Friday. The news was met with very little fanfare from the liberal media, which stood in stark contrast to the circus atmosphere hype surrounding the show's premiere on September 11, 2012.

The cancellation was among a long list of shows such as "Go On" and "Guys With Kids" which were also canceled Friday.

"The New Normal" was produced by Glee's Ryan Murphy, who sought to redefine the way families are portrayed on TV. Murphy arrogantly described TNN as "changing the face of television."

But not everyone jumped on the bandwagon. NBC affiliate KSL-TV in Utah made the decision not to run the program at all. “For our brand, this program simply feels inappropriate on several dimensions, especially during family viewing time,” said Jeff Simpson, CEO of KSL-TV’s parent company.

NeNe Leakes and greg getting married again

NeNe Leakes met her husband Greg at her place of work, a seedy strip club. Exotic dancers are more proficient at controlling their emotions to avoid the temptations of falling for every man who tosses a dollar their way. That explains why, when real love does come along, their unions tend to withstand the test of time.

Married for 14 years, the Leakes are ready to renew their vows again, In Touch Weekly reports exclusively.

“This time around, we’ll work together as a team more,” NeNe told In Touch.

TLC Sisterhood cast

958,000 is roughly the number of viewers who tuned in to watch the series premiere of TLC's reality TV show Sisterhood last Tuesday. In fact, the number of viewers who tuned in was so low that the show is not even listed on the TV ratings charts for shows that aired on January 1st.

Apparently, TLC's decision to cut the check for a reality show that focuses on preacher's wives was not a good move.

250 is the number of signatures reached on a petition to pressure TLC into canceling the show. But the petition might not be necessary.
