Barbara Walters, outspoken journalist and host of ABC‘s hit morning talk show ‘The View’, gave her view on Donald Trump‘s recent proposal to President Barack Obama to reveal documents to verify his identity.

The request comes as another blow in a longstanding rivalry between Trump and Obama, one that Walters has seemingly grown weary of as evidenced by her plea to the ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ host on ‘The View’ this morning.  See it below…

In a fresh bid to sully President Obama’s public image, ‘The Apprentice’ front man Donald Trump made headlines recently when he revealed he would donate $5 million to a charity of Obama’s choice, in exchange for his passport and proof of his time at college.

Hinting, that the President has been anything but transparent with the public with regards to his past.

Last night, in an interview with Jay Leno, Obama mocked these claims, boldly addressing Trump’s controversial attack.

Will it be third time lucky for ‘The X Factor USA’?

Creator of the franchise Simon Cowell has revealed that the FOX show will be back for a third season next year, despite so-so ratings and being trounced by rival The Voice week-in-week-out. Taking to Twitter, the media mogul and judge on the show wrote:

 

 

 

While FOX may be committed to the show, the network will no doubt be doing so with concrete confirmation that American Idol is their star-player in the reality-singing arena. The Cowell produced show has been averaging 9 million viewers week, far below the 20 million the Mr Nasty predicted upson its launch. What this spells for The X Factor and its budget next year will be uber interesting to see.

For if not awarded the same production budget, will they even bother trying to entice the likes of Britney Spears back for another spell on the judging panel? Then there’s the question of whether Spears’ will even sign again. After all, from a branding perspective, as much as the show hasn’t “hurt” her career, it hasn’t done wonders for it either. What’s more, it does her no favours being on a show that is losing the ratings battle to shows starring diva rivals such as Christina Aguilera.

Needless to say, it’ll be interesting to see how things play out.

Well, well, well…what do we have here?

As reported here, ‘Clueless’ beauty Stacey Dash received quite the backlash after announcing her support of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney over the past month.  The attacks led Dash to CNN to defend her political views, even still, to unwelcoming reviews.

And, while the heat from that story has somewhat cooled, a recent interview with actress Vivica A. Fox may reignite it and not in a good way.  While on the promotional trail for her forthcoming venture with Lifetime ‘Prank My Mom’, the actress was not exactly joking when she weighed in Dash’s decision to voice her political views.

Sure to get tongues wagging, today’s forecast – as evidenced by Fox – must’ve called for shade.

Fergie is telling all.

Leaving no topic untouched- her husband’s alleged infidelity  her addiction to crystal meth and feuding with BEP front Will.i.am included- her appearance saw her bare all for Oprah, who enjoyed the company of Fergie’s parents, husband and sister.

‘Friday’ funnyman Mike Epps may be constantly building his comedic resume, but recent news may see him step out of character and into that of another comedian – the legendary Richard Pryor.

A role undoubtedly eyed by many, Epps is set to portray Pryor in the forthcoming biopic ‘Nina’ based on the life of singer/songwriter/activist Nina Simone.  As headlines have revealed in the past months, the title role was awarded to ‘Colombiana’ actress Zoe Saldana (despite Mary J. Blige reportedly being a shoo in for years).

And, unlike the biopic itself (which has not received the official blessing of Simone’s family), Epps says the Pryor family’s blessing is what ultimately led him to take the role.

No official word on when the project can expect to be released.
