Since EVERYBODY steals from us (such as Monique's Michael K. Williams and Django Unchained scoop from last week, which was reported on film and news blogs practically around the world), why not steal from someone else this time? So with that I came across this amusing recent item on Bossip.com (That's right Bossip. I makes no bones about it. I love it) in which they list, in their opinion, the WORST black TV shows ever.

Somewhat of a diversion, but since there's been so much talk lately about George Lucas' Red Tails, in theaters early next year, it's somewhat fitting. Real life pilot for the Tuskegee Airmen, Daniel Keel is interviewed here by Larry Blucher. Blucher is a New Media Journalism classmate of mine; I liked his video and thought I'd share. Keel talks about the racism he faced while serving in World War II. You can find the full article in his website Questionable Things. :-)

Maybe this is in response to all those who've questioned her *hardness* since it was announced that she would play Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises? But seriously, she's not all that bad. She sounds harder than Will Smith who's reportedly planning a comeback album by the way :)

I really don't know how TMZ gets close enough to Will Smith to grab this footage (dated 8/12) which they say is of him testing out the gym's facilities, including a 20-minute MMA training session with Jamall "X Factor" Johnson; apparently, he's on the market for a new gym in Philly. Funny, I figured he'd have one in his friggin' house.
