What were these celebrities thinking when they made these silly comments? Did they really think the other person would laugh it off or not react. We’re sure they will think twice before they open their big mouths again or do something else outrageous.

Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That! Robin Thicke Dishes On Why He Really Left ‘Real Husbands Of Hollywood’
When it was first announced that Robin Thicke wouldn’t be returning to BET’s hit comedy series Real Husbands of Hollywood, all kinds of rumors began to circulate. Some said that Robin pulled a no-show when it was time to begin filming. Others said that Robin and Kevin exchanged words, resulting in Robin storming off of the set and never looking back. Kevin Hart squashed rumors of alleged beef between he and Robin in an interview last month and now Robin is doing the same. The “Blurred Lines” singer paid a visit to Power 105.1′s The Breakfast Club and chatted it up with the gang about a host of topics including the real reason he left the show, what it means to be a Black woman and constantly being compared to Justin Timberlake. Peep what he had to say below.
On why he be won’t returning to Real Husbands of Hollywood next season:
“The thing was, I was gonna do the new season and then this song started taking off. I didn’t have the time to do the new season. I had to get this album. It was fun just to do it like once. Then you start to repeat story lines, repeating jokes.”
On if he ever finds Kevin Hart’s jokes about Paula Patton upsetting:
“No. You know, that’s comedy. Kevin [Hart] and I actually met at Chris Paul’s wedding only about a year ago. When we met, I started doing my impersonation of Kevin for Kevin. I know his whole standup. We hit it off right away. We went to dinner and we laughed for hours like we were best friends from high school. That’s why the show was fun and so easy to do. Him and I have similar tastes in comedy”
On being compared to Justin Timberlake:
“He always made R&B pop music. The great thing about it, there’s plenty room of everybody when you’re making good music….We’re both white. We have some of the same inspiration. We both have actresses for wives.”
On using arguments he has with Paula in his music:
“One time she told me ‘You don’t know what it’s like to be Black and you don’t know what it’s like to be a woman.’ I was like, ‘I don’t know how to argue with that.’ So I wrote a song ‘I Don’t Know How it Feels to be You’ because I don’t know. As much as I try to understand and as much as I try to put myself in your shoes, I’ll never know what it’s like to be Black in America and I’ll never know what it’s like to be a woman.”

Singer Robin Thicke recently announced that he was leaving the BET scripted series “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” and it took show creator Kevin Hart no time to find his replacement— Chris Rock. The funnyman and comedic star recently told HipHollywood about his excitement for the show.
“I’m a fan of Kevin … it’s rare when you actually get to work with each other and have fun,” he said.
Since debuting with over four million viewers in January, the show has been a staple for the network. Alongside Kevin, Duane Martin, J.B. Smoove, Nick Cannon and others, season two has already begun filming. Check out Chris and Kevin’s interview on the new cast changes below.
Do you think this is a good move for the franchise?
You Mad? Duane Martin Speaks On Robin Thicke Leaving ‘Real Husbands,’ Calls Him The Bobby Brown Of The Group
Last week we told you all there were rumors going around that Robin Thicke was out on BET’s hit reality show parody, “The Real Husbands of Hollywood.” Since that time, Hevin Hart has come forward to confirm the rumors are true, but he shut down whispers that his antics are what made Robin walk. Kevin told HipHollywood in a recent interview that, basically, Robin Thicke is a singer — not an actor or comedian — and he wanted to get back to doing what he does, which is sing.
Makes sense, right?
Duane Martin on the other hand tried to crack a few jokes at Robin’s expense that, truthfully, just came out awkward. When Hip Hollywood asked him his thoughts on Paula Patton’s husband leaving the show, he essentially called him the Bobby Brown and Eddie Kane (shout out to the Five Heartbeats) of the group, claiming one day he’ll come back begging to be on the show again.
Maybe it’s just me or maybe Duane was still in “character” when he did this interview, but his “Nights Like This” joke fell horribly flat and seemed to only add to suspicion that there was some real-life drama on the set of the “Real Husbands.” All I’m saying is I think a simple “we’ll welcome him back when he’s ready” would have sufficed, Duane.
Check out the clip here. What do you think? Are you sad to see Robin go?
Say it ain’t true because if it is – BET’s hit “reality” show, Real Husbands of Hollywood just lost their minority. News has surfaced that sultry R&B singer Robin Thicke has bid adieu to the scripted comedy after just one season (they are currently taping season two). While the jury is still out on why he left, speculations are twirling faster than Kenya Moore on vacation in Anguilla, citing diva behavior and a possible fight with creator and co-star, Kevin Hart.
According to Diary of a Hollywood Street King, Thicke didn’t show up to the set for a recent filming. No warning, phone call, text or Facebook message was sent on his part to the cast or crew and as a result, he left everyone wasting lots of time and dollars.
“Everybody was on the set Friday, waiting. Robin didn’t call or nothing! His camp checked in and told the BET staff, “Keep the money because Robin is not doing the show anymore,” a source tells HSK.
Robin may have expressed a few negative sentiments about the show as well, allegedly stating it has hurt his brand, and he doesn’t believe his fans watch BET. Uh – did he think it was going to be on a prime time network? This is a complete 180 from the Robin that we perceived hi to be. How could such a patient man (especially with Kevin cracking jokes on him and trying to steal his wife) who does zen-like yoga poses be such a diva? Or maybe he’s worried Kevin’s really trying to push up on his woman.
There may or may not be another side to this random puzzle as New York morning show, The Cipha Sounds & Rosenberg Show (don’t forget K. Foxx) let this cat out the bag this AM, saying that Robin and Kevin might have exchanged a few words, with Thicke walking out to never return.
So what say you Real Husbands of Hollywood lovers? Are we lost without Robin Thicke, or can we live without him? Even if he wants to leave the show, there are better ways than not showing up – and it looks like BET is ready to teach him a lesson with a reported $100,000 lawsuit for monies wasted due to his antics. I guess he gon’ learn today! Or else all the gullible blogs who pick this up as a real story will have gotten got by this reality parody…(shudders)
Justin Timberlake better watch out because it’s about to be a battle of the blond haired, blue eyed soul singers if Robin Thicke has his way. The “Real Househusband” who brought us tracks like “Sex Therapy” and “Wanna Love You Girl” is back stronger than ever with the help of two equally charming heavy hitters in the game, T.I. and Pharrell.
The trio’s new track “Blurred Lines” is everything you need in a spring jam and a refreshing break from popped a molly music. And let’s be serious, who doesn’t love T.I. in a suit doing the Bill Cosby? Thank you Robin #Thicke for this.

By all accounts, this should be called The KEvin Hart Show but we digress.
After debuting with a whopping 4.1 million viewers and knocking out the competition in its time slot in January, BET has decided to renew “the fakest reality show ever,” The Real Husbands of Hollywood, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
BET’s president of music programming and specials Stephen G. Hill sounds beyound thrilled:
“When we launched this series in January, we knew our audience would have as much fun watching it as we had making it, and since it has been on the air, fans have voiced on social media that they want more. So this was a pretty simple decision: ‘Hey! Let’s make more! We are beyond thrilled that Kevin Hart and the stellar Husbands will be back bickering and back-biting, for another season on BET.”
The show, co-created and starring Kevin Hart (the other creator is comedian Chris Spencer), will have a 12 episode season when it returns. The other Husbands, including Nick Cannon, J.B. Smoove, Robin Thicke, Duane Martin and Boris Kodjoe, are all slated to return when the show begins filming again.
Most of these stars stay busy in other aspects of their professional careers so it no doubt a good time when they can create a “fake” reality show and pretty much just be silly.

There’s Room For More Than One Blue-Eyed Soul Singer, So Stop Saying Justin Timberlake Is Copying Robin Thicke
When Justin Timberlake announced his return to music, no one really knew what to expect. However, it seems that the majority of people seemed to think he would be bringing sexay back just like the good old days…that somehow, in the course of seven years, he couldn’t possibly have grown up at all. With that being said, I’ve come up with three reasons why Justin Timberlake may appear to be copying Robin Thicke, when in actuality he is NOT copying Robin Thicke.
First of all, anyone who knows anything about Justin Timberlake’s history in music knows that Justin Timberlake has always had some soul or R&B flavor, even back when he was in ‘N Sync. However, within the constraints of a pop boy band like ‘N Sync was not able to express it. It was only until the Celebrity album that Timberlake was able to write three songs, two of which became some of ‘N Sync’s most “urban” songs to date, Girlfriend, and Gone. This is when we started to see his strong use of falsetto, and his use of R&B style runs and ad-libs. By Timberlake’s first solo album Justified, we saw drastic increases in his use of falsetto, and even some obvious Michael Jackson influences. The use of R&B-sounding runs were in abundance on this album; however, because of the fact that this was Justin Timberlake’s first solo album there was still under pressure from the record company, and thus he had to create a more pop album.The same was true for FutureSex/LoveSounds. Fast forward seven years to today with Justin Timberlake now being a successful actor and entrepreneur, and having taken seven years off from music, it’s quite obvious that JT is simply making music now because he misses it and without having anything to prove, we now have the sound that is The 20/20 Experience.
The next possible reason for similarities in styles is a reason that Robin Thicke himself actually came up with. While speaking to VIBE TV, Thicke spoke about “Suit & Tie,” and why the two of them appear to have similar style.
“I like the song; the thing about Justin and I is that we’re inspired by a lot of the same singers, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Stevie Wonder …so when you’re inspired by the same masters, sometimes you’re gonna make certain songs that sound alike but I like the record. It grooves.” - Robin Thicke
I’m sure some of you are probably thinking that “obviously Robin Thicke has to say something like that because he wouldn’t dare say that Justin Timberlake is copying him.” However, before you go passing judgment, perhaps I should remind you exactly why this is a very plausible reason. Justin Timberlake is originally from Memphis, yes, that’s right, the home of some of history’s most soulful music. In that case, it is very possible that Justin Timberlake would be influenced by the same sort of sound that Robin Thicke has been influenced by.
Justin Timberlake may also be adopting a mature sound because he might just actually be more mature. Can you believe it? After 7 years, and a brand new marriage, he might have actually just grown up? Older people tend to listen and prefer more mature sounding music, that’s just the reality of the situation. In addition to that, his fans have grown up too. It might actually be an insult to his fans if he brought out new material that sounded more like Justin Bieber or Chris Brown. Sure Usher did it by selling out his urban R&B style and adopting the sounds of the younger generation, but with Justin Timberlake making a lot of money as an actor, he doesn’t need to adapt to the changing music industry. In fact, he can make whatever type of music he likes, hence why we have his current sound…a sound that Robin Thicke did NOT invent, a sound that not only one white male is allowed to have.
***NOTE: I am a fan of both Robin Thicke and Justin Timberlake and have nothing against Robin Thicke in anyway.
Ya’ll know Kevin Hart has a thing for Paula Patton and he’s finally decided to put it in a song — to the tune of her husband, Robin Thicke’s own track, “Lost Without You,” of course — except Kevin Hart’s version has a bit of a twist. He’s “Frost Without You.”
Last night on the “Real Househusbands of Hollywood,” the comedian debuted what he considers to be his new “hit” single. We can’t vouch for those vocals, but the lyrics….hilarious! And the video is even funnier! Check it out here and tell us what you think.
Is BET Finally Winning? ‘Real Husbands Of Hollywood’ And ‘Second Generation Wayans’ Top Cable Ratings
This past Tuesday, BET premiered the highly anticipated scripted series Real Husbands of Hollywood along with Second Generation Wayans. Many were skeptical as to how these shows would perform for the network, considering how difficult it has been in the past to predict the success of BET’s scripted shows. However, it was pleasantly surprising to learn this morning that the two new additions to the BET lineup slaughtered their competition when it came to ratings Tuesday night.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Real Husbands of Hollywood, starring Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, Boris Kodjoe, Robin Thicke, Dwayne Martin and J.B. Smoove topped all shows that aired during the 10 pm hour on cable television. The show’s debut episode is said to have pulled 4.1 million viewers. The sitcom was number one among all cable and network broadcasts falling within the adults 18-49 demographic with a 2.1 rating. The show’s encore, which aired at 11 pm excelled as well, bringing in 2.3 million viewers.
The husbands of Hollywood aren’t the only fellas reported to be topping the charts. It appears that Second Generation Wayans starring Damien Dante Wayans, Craig Wayans, Tatyanna Ali and George O. Gore II also performed superbly in its premiere night. The sitcom is said to have garnered 3.7 million viewers during its 10:30 pm premiere and received a rating of 1.7 among the 18-49 demographic. The 11:30 pm showing pulled an additional 1.4 million viewers.
Real Husbands of Hollywood currently reigns as the number one debut cable sitcom of the season and Second Generation Wayans comes in at number two.
Among adults 18-34, RHOH had the third best cable debut of all time.
It’s great to see that BET’s new shows are performing so well and that they are being supported.
Did you check out either of these shows this past Tuesday? What did you think?
