I don't think I was impressed when I heard Ben Affleck would play the next Batman for "Batman vs. Superman." But after hearing who was just may be joining Ben in the movie, I may have to go see it. Lisa Bonet's baby's daddy, actor, Jason Momoa will be reportedly one of the characters in the movie, according to Page Six. But we are not sure which character or action hero he will even play. And in case you're not sure who he is, let's just say he is definitely some eye candy. He played Khal Drogo on “Game of Thrones," "Conan the Barbarian," and he even had a brief stint on BET's "The Game".
Nothing says Merry Christmas like having teens twerk in a Christmas parade. That's what happened in Louisiana, according to the post that was on YouTube. And I know you're thinking, is there a Christmas song where you can twerk? As far as I know...no. But the teens came with their own dance music, and nothing says Christmas like a parade of teens that dance to part of the song that says "Make ya ass go...". And this was in a neighborhood full of kids. Wow! So if you ever asked "Where they do that at?" now you know. What do you think about this?
There apparently some rumor going around that Gucci Mane murdered a cellmate while in jail because the cellmate tried to rape Gucci. WHAT? Yeah seems far-fetched, right? Well, don't believe that. According to Memphis Rap, and Gucci didn't kill anyone. According to a satire news site, Gucci was sleep and woke up to a cellmate licking the ice cream cone on his face, that's when Gucci allegedly choked the guy to death. Gucci even jumped on Twitter to deny the rumor saying, "Don't believe the lies man. #Rumors." Wait, how did he tweet from jail?

Thank goodness for this. Over the summer, "The Real" talk show debuted and it seemed pretty good. Okay, it was more like a test run of the show, with the hosts Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon, Tamera Mowry, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai. Well EURweb is reporting Fox has greenlit a national roll-out of the show! No one knew if the show would make a return or not. Yes, Fox kept that on the hush for real. The hosts signed a 2-year contract with Fox, plus the show will even air on BET. Look for the show to return in Fall 2014 and yes, it will air in Philly!
Leave it to social media and technology to get President Barack Obama in hot water with some people. During a memorial service for Nelson Mandela, the Potus was caught taking a selfie picture with Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron and Denmark's Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt, according to EURweb. As much as I am down for the Potus, it could have been a tad disrespectful during a memorial service. And looking at the photo, it looks like First Lady Michelle Obama is giving him the side-eye at his actions. Later, photos surfaced of the First Lady sitting between the Prime Ministers and her husband. It reminds me of how a grandmother would treat you when you are in church playing with your friend...she moves you away from them. Yeah, you get the idea. Ha! Do you think it was okay for the Potus to take a selfie?
