BET’s ‘Real Husbands of Hollywood’ quickly found a faithful audience upon its early 2013 debut.  The scripted “realityseries, based on the popular BET Awards skit of the same name, brought fans a weekly dose of comedy via its stars Kevin Hart, Duane Martin, Nick Cannon, Boris Kodjoe, Nelly, & J.B. Smoove.

Now, in reality show fashion, the stars of the show prepare a reunion episode to reflect on season 1 of the hit series before its season 2 premiere early next year.  Hosted by Lala Anthony, the reality show is due for premiere on May 28th at 10pm on BET.

The “first look” photo above surfaces just weeks after news that famed comedian Chris Rock was set to join the cast after former cast member Robin Thicke flew the coop and announced he was set not to return for the next season.

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, will.i.am, 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.

Has ‘No Love Allowed‘ singer Rihanna been tipped to  play Josephine Baker in a forthcoming biopic? Fortunately for fans of the star, the answer to that question is yes.

For, in what will no doubt hand exposure to the project, producer W Lance Reynolds has revealed that he hopes to secure the chart topping chanteuse for the role- explaining:

“Rihanna is one of the most talented performers of this millennium and with her unique acting and performing abilities, I have no doubt she will bring Josephine back to life on the big screen.”

Reportedly pulling from Jo Bouillon‘s 1995 paperback ‘Josephine‘, rights to the flick have been purchased Noosa and comes 22 years after Time Warner‘s HBO unveiled the Emmy award winning ‘The Josephine Baker Story‘, starring Lynn Whitfield.
