The second search for ‘The Voice UK’ is underway!

Already a smash in the US (and its original home of Holland), the show has arrived on British shores by way of the BBC last year and takes its place prime-time for another year running. Coaches this side of the pond are Jessie J,, Danny O’ Donoghue, and the legendary Tom Jones.

Billed as the definitive talent-search, many are predicting it to serve as a true contender to The X Factor‘s strong hold.

Fans cannot wait to get a taste (all pun intended) of the newest episodes of HBO‘s top rated vampire series ‘True Blood’.

This weekend saw the arrival of a new trailer to add to the already lengthy list of teasers for the June 16th due premiere.  As previously reported, however, some fans have expressed disappointment as this season‘s noted differences include it being the first season without “True Blood” creator Alan Ball at the helm and unlike previous seasons that aired 12 episodes, season 6 will only have 10.

Reports have surfaced indicating that after their first season the first ladies of TLC will see their show cancelled.

Domonique Scott, Tara Lewis, Ivy Couch, Christina Murray and DeLana Rutherford, stars of TLC‘s ‘The Sisterhood’, were the leading castmates of the Atlanta-based reality show based on the lives of preacher’s wives.  Along with its less than favorable ratings, the show, much like Lifetime’s ‘The Preacher’s Daughters’, was very much the chatter of Christian groups who panned the show for its portrayal of church figure.

Some of the cast members have responded to news of the show’s cancellation.  Read their comments here.

Grammy winning crooner Usher may have built a career out of being a knockout on charts and dancefloors, but now the smooth singer will be taking his moves to the boxing ring.  Indeed, reports have surfaced indicating the ‘Trading Places’ performer will see his name placed on the bill of new film “Hands of Stone” portraying celebrated fighter Sugar Ray Leonard.

The movie, based on the life of great boxer Roberto Duran, will be directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz and also feature the likes of acting legend Robert De Niro in its cast.

Set for release in early 2014, Ush took to Billboard to share his thoughts on the announcement. His words below…



Justin Timberlake has already seen his latest album ’20/20 Experience’ open to blockbuster sales and continue chart dominance nearly two months since its release, but now the pop prince is looking to extend his reign to another tally – box offices.

Indeed, the singer/actor is set to take his talents to screens once more with the film ‘Spinning Gold’ – the story of recording industry icon Neil Bogart.  Bogart, whose illustrious career saw him launch or guide the early careers of legends Curtis Mayfield, Gladys Knight, KISS, The Village People, and many more, will have his story told by son Timothy Scott Bogart.

Producers tapped for the film are Mark Damon (“Monster”), Laurence Mark (“Dreamgirls”), and more.

No tentative release date has been announced.

If reports are to be believed, America’s favorite alien crimefighters ‘Men In Black’ may be donning their black suits once more for a new installment of action.

With stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones presumed to be at the forefront of the action and director Barry Sonnenfeld in tow, word has it Sony has already tapped screenwriter Oren Uziel to script part 4 of the series and that it won’t take a decade to surface like its predecessor (which nearly grossed $200 million in North American box offices alone and $445 million abroad).


Do you want to see a ‘Men In Black 4’?

TGJ:  4) What’s been your favorite role so far?

Kym:  My favorite role to this day was on the ‘Wayans Bros‘. We did an episode called ‘Misery’. I got the chance to play a woman who kidnapped Marlon [Wayans]. I got to be so silly and ignorant!  So, I think that’s definitely it!

TGJ:  5) After years of film and television under your belt, what’s left for you to do? What’s your dream role?

Kym:  Probably more behind the camera. I’d love to do more production and directing.  My dream role would be to play a civil rights leader or something historic. No matter the time period, I am fascinated by African American history.

TGJ:  Wow! That was really unexpected!  So, bringing this all home, give us one reason why we should watch Raising Whitley?

Kym:  Two L’s – to laugh and learn!  Also, to be inspired!

‘Raising Whitley’ airs Saturdays, 10/9c only on OWN TV!
