After 17 years on the air Montel Williams show was canceled last week and we are wondering if this video is the reason. He was on Fox News and they wanted to talk about the death of actor Heath Ledger and Montel expressed his regret about the sudden death of the actor but said that the media’s non stop coverage of it repulsed him when there have been 28 US soldiers killed in Iraq since January 1st. He said that gets no coverage so he didn’t want to discuss Heath Ledger. So was his show canceled because of this?

A few couples were spotted the last few days coupled up. Among them was our boy Malik Yoba with a pretty young lady named Meisha Stevenson, they look real good together. Not sure they are an actual couple but we are assuming. Russ was kicking it with his model beau Porschella. Don’t they look cute with their phat farm sweaters on. They were at a philanthropic event for his Rush Communications. And Montell was really getting his lip action on in public.

Will and Jada look so good together. A lot of stars came out to the premiere of “I Am Legend” in NY. Salli Richardson was looking bangin. We might have to put out a ‘Cornball’ alert for Bow wow and Omarion. We won’t even get started on Coco’s outfit choice…maybe later.

Talk show host Montel Williams has apologized for an angry confrontation with reporters who said he threatened them.
Williams — in Savannah to promote a program giving free prescriptions to low-income people — became upset with a reporter’s question Friday and terminated an interview.
When the Savannah Morning News reporters later returned to the hotel for an unrelated assignment, he approached one of them — high school student Courtney Scott, an intern at the newspaper.
“As we were preparing to film, Montel walked up with his bodyguard and got in Courtney Scott’s face pointing his finger telling her ‘Don’t look at me like that. Do you know who I am? I’m a big star, and I can look you up, find where you live and blow you up,’” said Joseph Cosey, a web content producer for the newspaper. “At this time he was randomly pointing at all of us.”
Scott said she wasn’t sure how to interpret Williams’ comment.
“I’m not sure if he meant ‘blow me up’ and ruin my career or really blow us up, but it was threatening,” Scott said.
Williams later issued a statement apologizing…
“I mistakenly thought the reporter and photographer in question were at the hotel to confront me about some earlier comments,” Williams said. “I was wrong, and I apologize for my overreaction.”
The earlier interview ended after Scott asked Williams: “Do you think pharmaceutical companies would be discouraged from research and development if their profits were restricted?”
According to the reporters, Williams reacted angrily, saying:
“I’m trying to figure out exactly why you are here and what the interview is about. I’m here as a patient advocate talking about the fact that medications available today are saving people’s lives, that’s what’s saving mine and after that, this interview is done.”
