In Hollywood, you’re only afforded a handful of public spaz-outs before you’re given the severe side-eye and labeled as a looney tune. Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actress Janet Hubert, who is still affectionately known as the original Aunt Viv, seems to have used up all of her courtesy melt downs, leaving many of us looking at her with raised eyebrows and asking, “What’s really going on?” Within the past three years, the 57-year-old Chicago native has flipped out on former co-star Will Smith and talk show host Wendy Williams, both on multiple occasions. Now she appears to have beef with The Talk host Aisha Tyler.
During the show, Tyler commented on the vintage Fresh Prince of Bel-Air beef between Hubert and Will Smith, which set Hubert completely off (again). Making it clear that she was not pleased with Tyler’s comments, the 90s actress posted an angry message on the talk show host’s Facebook page.
“Yo, weave woman, your comments were not appreciated. You are not funny in the least. You know some people, and so do I. Remember that. You can be replaced quicker than I was,” Hubert wrote.
“You should remember how you got your job and why you are in that chair in the first place. If you want to dish it out, you better be able to take it as well,” she added.
Tyler, not being one to back down, responded to Hubert’s comments on-air.
“First of all, I think she has fabulous taste in daytime television talk shows - excellent taste. She’s obviously still very angry about something that happened more than 20 years ago, and that’s the part that I find saddest about all of this. Bad things happen to people all of the time. Unfair things happen to people all of the time. I wasn’t there. I don’t know [what happened]. As an adult, you move on in your life because it’s a trap to be stuck in this place of — from what I can tell — bitterness and it’s just sad,” Tyler expressed.
“I really wish her the best. I said it yesterday and I’ll say it again: She’s gorgeous, she’s talented and she should move on with her life, do great things and stop focusing on stuff that happened a million years ago,” Tyler continued.
Turn the page to see Aisha’s co-hosts Sheryl Underwood and Sharon Osbourne jump in on the action. What do you think of Janet’s latest tongue-lashing?
Funny lady Sheryl Underwood has always been an “aunt in my head.” She always seems so cool, down to earth and downright real, which is why it didn’t come as a surprise when we learned that homegirl yanked her wig off on national television just to get a little chuckle.
I know you’re probably wondering, “What on earth possessed her to do that?” So, allow me to fill you in on how it all went down. On last Friday’s episode of daytime television show, The Talk Sheryl and her cohorts Aisha Tyler, Sarah Gilbert and Julie Chen were interviewing actress Kristin Chenoweth, along with their guest co-host, Donny Osmond. During the interview the ladies got to chatting it up about hair extensions and making fun their “enhanced,” luxurious locs. In the heat of the moment, Julie took off one of her hair pieces and began waving it around. As everyone broke out in a fit of laughter, Kristin and Aisha did the same, joining in on the fun. Julie then looked at Sheryl, egging her on and chanting, “Do it! Do It.” Sheryl eventually pulled back her wig, exposing her greying hair.
In other The Talk news, according to Always A List, back in January when it was announced that the daytime talk show would be renewed for a third season, it was also revealed that the CBS show had been doing really well as far as ratings are concerned. With an average of 2.35 million viewers, which is an 11% increase from the previous year.
Keep up the good work, ladies!
Do you think Sheryl should’ve passed on the wig-flipping session?
As the next Presidential election draws nigh in November, the two most popular candidates, Democratic President Barack Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney have been paving the campaign trail. With election year comes slander, controversy and your occasional celebrity political rants. Politics met entertainment with the latest celebrity rant, coming from Nicki Minaj, in which she rapped in vote of Republican Mitt Romney. This was a shock to fans and celebrity bloggers everywhere, but Nicki is not the only popular African-American face that has shown favor to the GOP. Here is a list of some African-American celebrities who have supported or are affiliated with the Republican party:
LL Cool J
LL Cool J attended the Republican Convention in 2004 and has been a supporter of Republican New York governor George Pataki back in 2002. He has never officially stated his political party.

If you were like me, you probably loved the original cast of CBS’ “The Talk.” (Minus Marissa Jaret Winokur, who left the show last January.) “The Talk,” which was clearly CBS’ answer to ABC’s “The View”was strong in the fact that its co-hostesses all came from diverse backgrounds. There was a lesbian (Sara Gilbert), a Brit (Sharon Osbourne), a black woman (Holly Robinson Peete), an Asian woman (Julie Chen) and the feisty Jewish and Italian woman, Leah Remini. In an industry dominated by white men, it was more than refreshing to see such a diverse cast on daytime television. In all seriousness, it was beautiful. And often more light-hearted and less controversial than “The View.” Sometimes all that screaming over one another really is too much.
But all good things must come to an end right? In a shocking and unexplained move, the network axed Peete and Remini and replaced them with Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler. Interesting, right? While I don’t mean to throw any shade whatsoever to Underwood and Tyler, I miss the old lineup! I loved Leah’s authentic frankness and Holly’s delightful overshares. The dynamic of all the women and how they communicated with one another really made for good television. But what was so unsettling about Peete and Remini’s exit was the fact that no one said a thing about it.
Leah Remini took to the 24 hour celebrity press conference, a.k.a. Twitter, to finally address why she and Peete had to go. (Finally, some closure.)
This is what she had to say: (Buckle your seat belts.)
“Sharon thought me and Holly were ‘Ghetto’, (her words) we were not funny, awkward and didn’t know ourselves… She had us fired.”
Before we get into this, let’s pause for the cause, if I hear yet another ignorant person, Caucasian or otherwise, incorrectly use the word “ghetto,” I’m going to start a riot…in the confines of my own apartment…without breaking any valuables, of course.
Leah went on to tweet that Sharon revealed all of this on Howard Stern when she, Chen and Gilbert appeared on his show back in December. Looking at the some excerpts of the interview, Sharon did say that the two didn’t “know themselves.” But the ghetto thing, I didn’t see. But who knows. In Ms. Osbourne’s defense though, if she thought Holly and Leah were ghetto, I’m sure Sheryl, though she is not ghetto, would probably be waaay too much for her to handle. And I’m not the only one who believes this, one of Remini’s followers tweeted:
@LeahRemini if so then it looks like Sheryl is the next to go cause Sharon looks like “shut up Beyotch” when Sheryl is talking
(On the real, sometime Sheryl says some very cringe worthy things.)
And Leah replied,
“That’s who she is. she did that to me everyday. I feel for them.She has the power that was given to her. And yes, you are also right”
Looking at these allegations, what do you think? Do you think Osbourne really had the two of them fired? Do you prefer the new line- up on “The Talk”? Hell, do you even watch “The Talk”? Maybe I’m the only one who is still tripping about this absolute scandal…

Sheryl Underwood is really making moves for herself these days. In addition to her gig on CBS’ “The Talk,” Underwood will also appear on The Young and the Restless. Underwood has long been a fan of the soaps so this was a dream come true for her.
Underwood recently chatted with TV Guide Magazine about her experience. See what she had to say about her soap opera stint:
TV Guide Magazine: How far back do you go with Y&R?
Underwood: Waaay back, baby. Back to when David Hasselhoff was Snapper and Mrs. Chancellor was the baddest Itchbay on TV. She was doing fight scenes long before Alexis and Crystal on Dynasty. Oooh! Remember when John fell in love with Mamie, his black housekeeper, but it was too scandalous so she was given a million dollars and sent away on an ocean cruise? Remember when Drucilla was doped up on cough medicine and Malcolm had sex with her? Love! This! Show! I love The Bold and the Beautiful. I love John McCook. I love Susan Flannery. I love everybody on every soap. I love SoapNet. I’m a fanatic!
TV Guide Magazine: So how’d you do in your big suds debut?
Underwood: I was so nervous, I couldn’t eat and I couldn’t sleep. It takes a lot of mental dexterity to do a soap, but it was just phenomenal. A few days before I did my scenes I was performing in Washington, D.C., at the D.C. Improv and Debbi Morgan [Y&R's Harmony] came to see my show. I told her to tell the people at Y&R that I was not coming in intending to be funny and that I would not be needing a billion takes. I was concerned that maybe they wouldn’t think I was taking this seriously because I’m a standup comic. I was dead serious and needed them to know that. I want to do that show again! Who else needs marrying in Genoa City?
