Cable giant Comcast released it’s list of the 50 Greatest TV Characters, onto their website, comcast.net. But there’s something very strange about this list. Hmmm, maybe it’s the fact that there are only 3 black characters on the entire list out of 50 possible slots. Legendary actor Redd Foxx, MIranda Bailey of “Grey’s Anatomy”, and Bill Cosby are the only 3 African Americans on the list. Maybe Comcast forgot that there were other Black shows on TV. The wild thing is that Bill Cosby lands in at #48. Are you serious? Redd Foxx is #15, and Miranda Bailey is #25. Which other TV characters do you feel should have been included? Well if you had a list who else would you include?

Bern Nadette better known to the masses of TV fans, as Thelma that played on Good Times, recently sat down for a candid interview with Essence and traveled back into time as she recollected her experiences on the iconic show.
Essence.com: Afterwards were you able to bring a lot of yourself to the character?
B.S.: Well, they didn’t know how to develop Thelma at first so they used to just have me in the bathroom all the time. For six months I would come and say, “Hi Mom. Hi Dad.” and then go to the bathroom. So one day I said to Esther Rolle [my on-screen mother Florida Evans], whom I was very close to and called “Mom,” and said, “I would like more to say. I feel like I can act and they’re only giving me these one or two lines.” She said, “You are a pretty good actress, you could do more. Let me handle it.” That Friday we went to rehearsal and of course I had one or two lines and then I’m in the bathroom. At the end of the whole reading she asked them, “Is my daughter retarded?” And I’m like, Please say no (laughs). So they looked at her and told her no. Then she said, “Well you gave my sons JJ and Michael pages and pages of dialogue, but for my daughter you don’t give my daughter anything. I would like her to have something to say.” After that, Thelma was on the run. I thank Esther for that. Read the rest of this entry »

Charlie Sheen is apologizing for calling his ex-wife Denise Richards the N word on her voice mail during a rant. SMH.
Charlie Sheen is apologizing for a three-year-old voicemail that ex Denise Richards made public.
The voicemail included a curse-filled rant from Sheen calling Richards – the mother of their two young daughters Sam, 4, and Lola, 3- a “f–king c–t” and a “f–king n—-r.”
In response, the Two and a Half Men star said in a statement released Wednesday, “I deeply apologize by my choice of words to all I have obviously offended; especially to Tony Todd, an African-American, who was my best man at my first two weddings.”
Sheen added, however, that “three and one-half years later, the reasons that caused the anger and frustration displayed on that voice mail continue to be manifested on a daily basis” because “my children did not show up today for a custodial visit without explanation.”
Mediaoutrage- Damn Charlie you get angry and thats the first word that come out? Somewhere Bill O’Reilly and the entire FoxNews staff is pleased.

Will Smith and Charlize Theron were back on the red carpet for the London premiere of Hancock today, giving photographers an entertaining show of pictures that are worth more than a thousand words. We know Jada had to have approved this type of action. The conversation probably went something like this…phone rings…Jada picks up “Hello Will baby.” Will: “Hey girl, listen we out here in London me and Charlize, and we were thinking about going with the same type theme that we went with the day before where we get a little lip action on the neck, how bout it?” Jada:”You know that’s fine…but let me catch one picture with some lip lip action and I will personally rip your balls off reattach them, then rip them off again and tape them to the wall in our movie room in that mansion of ours. Ok sweetie?” Will: “Oh yeah…(pause) yeah (voice cracks) yeah baby thats cool…(laughingly says) girl you so crazy.” Jada: “Im not playing honey, nor am I f*cking around with your big eared ass, enjoy, love you call me later so we can decide which couple we gone f*ck this weekend, im feeling like some Russian d**k.”

We’re not sure what the film is about yet, being that he has the star role we know it will be a banger just like all of his other movies. This dude is definitely the greatest actor doing and should have won like 5 Oscars by now. What role doesn’t he kill? What’s your favorite Denzel flick???

Samuel Jackson and his wife Latanya Richardson attended the Paris premiere of “Cleaner” Friday. Sam is staying busy and is working on 6 films that will debut between 2008-2009. He has been in more than 60 movies. That is definitely a hard working brother. We remember Latanya best for her role in The Fighting Temptations.
