‘Fresh Prince’ Actress Janet Hubert Rages at Aisha Tyler For Uttering Her Name

Aisha Tyler The Talk Aunt Viv
Apparently hell hath no fury like a washed-up actress scorned. Remember Aunt Viv on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air? She was funny/good right? And it did kind of suck when she was replaced in season 4 by the less good, suspiciously lighter-skinned Daphne Reid.

Well, the great and powerful Janet Hubert, also known as Aunt Viv 1.0, is still absolutely furious at Will Smith and everyone else who worked on Fresh Prince for having her replaced. She’s also furious at anyone who talks about her on television. Like Wendy Williams, who dared to ask her guest, former FP star Tatyana Ali, about Aunt Viv 2.0 in March.

Hubert wrote a livid letter scolding Wendy for berating her fictional parenting skills, hinting that she felt especially betrayed because they’re both black women who should have each other’s backs. Continue reading “‘Fresh Prince’ Actress Janet Hubert Rages at Aisha Tyler For Uttering Her Name”

Leno Officially Handing ‘The Tonight Show’ To Fallon, ‘Late Night’ Still Unclaimed

Jay Leno Jimmy Fallon NBC announced Wednesday that unfunniest man in Hollywood Jay Leno will be retiring from The Tonight Show in Spring of 2014, giving him more time to penetrate exhaust pipes.

“This time around there really aren’t any complications like there were the last time,” said Leno, on that time he stole Conan’s job. “This time it feels right.”

Jimmy Fallon will step into Jay’s shoes for a reported pay increase of $12 million (from $5M), but there’s still no news of who will take over Late Night. Fellow SNL alum Seth Myers’ name is in the hat, but I’d rather see Aisha Tyler, or Jay Mohr. (Listen to their podcasts, Girl on Guy and Mohr Stories immediately.)

Aisha Tyler Doesn’t Know Why She Wore This Dress

Aisha Tyler see through dress 1Actress, video game aficionado, Girl On Guy podcast creator, voice of Archer‘s Lana Kane and Self-Inflicted Wounds: How I Learned to Embrace the Epic Fail author Aisha Tyler roasted her fashion choices today during her other gig, on The Talk.

When discussing Megan Fox letting her husband pick out an outfit, Tyler admitted that she had no idea what she was thinking when she wore a see-through dress to the NAACP Image Awards without asking anyone’s opinion first.

(I don’t know exactly when she wore this, but it must have been sometime between 2001 and 2006.) Here are some of her comments on it…

“If you see this photo online, I don’t look gorgeous, I look like a who-re.”  Continue reading “Aisha Tyler Doesn’t Know Why She Wore This Dress”

Julie Chen’s Fu Manchu Kills On ‘The Talk’

Julie chen beard I always say “If it’s funny, it’s not racist,” and Julie Chen with a Fu Manchu moustache is absolutely hilarious.

Four of The Talk hosts (five if you count guest Carnie Wilson) donned beards for a segment where they discussed a woman with a hormone imbalance who grew out her facial hair for Movember, a yearly event that brings awareness to prostate cancer.

Sheryl Underwood (in a Santa Clause getup) joked that Chen “should be running an opium ring.”

“It’s times like these that I like to quote Confucius. And Confucius say ‘No pluck your stubble, good luck no trouble,” Chen responded, struggling to keep a straight face.  Continue reading “Julie Chen’s Fu Manchu Kills On ‘The Talk’”

Ladies Of ‘The Talk’ Take Off Their Faces…

The five hosts of The Talk made history on Monday when they taped an entire show completely bare-faced, without makeup, wearing only robes and towels.

“We really are girlfriends and because we feel safe with each other, we’re willing to show more of ourselves to the public,” explained show creator Sara Gilbert.

I missed the show because Andy Murray’s U.S. Open win interrupted my DVR settings, but I did see clips and photos later.

If Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert, Sheryl Underwood, Julie Chen and Aisha Tyler were having a contest to see who looked the best without even a hint of concealer, beloved Girl On Guy podcast-founder and Archer star Aisha Tyler would prevail.  Continue reading “Ladies Of ‘The Talk’ Take Off Their Faces…”

Cedric Yarbrough As ‘Gandalf The Black’

In 2004 a musical version of Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring was born.

The partially-improvised Fellowship! in its most recent form stars Chris Tallman, original creator Kelly Holden-Bashar, and Reno 911!/The Boondock Saint’s Cedric Yarbrough.

I was listening to Girl On Guy with Aisha Tyler the other day and she happened to be interviewing Yarbrough, who talked about his time as “Gandalf The Black” at Trepany House in Los Angeles.

Fellowship! runs twice every Friday night – through June 29th, 2012. If you live in the area, there’s no excuse not to go.

LL Cool J Teaches The Ladies Of ‘The Talk’ The ‘Tandem Turkey Twist’

LL Cool J visited The Talk to discuss the Grammys, his recently deceased friend Heavy D and to teach the ladies some completely impractical turkey-related exercises to get their chair-formed arses a lift of mama-said-knock-you-out proportions.

Sara Gilbert refused to hold a turkey because she’s a vegan (Pshh I was a vegetarian for six years and I never pretended meat didn’t exist for other people) ANYWAY she held a pumpkin instead while Mr. Cool J had them “work their cores” by handing off birds while standing back to back.
