SCREEN LOVERS: NeNe Leakes In Talks For "Fashion Police"? + Michelle Rodriguez Clarifies Telling Minorities "Stop Taking Superhero Roles From Whites"

NeNe Leakes is rumored to be in talks to join "Fashion Police".  Deets inside, plus Michelle Rodriguez's foolish comments about minorities playing superheroes...

With Kelly Osbourne's abrupt announcement that she's leaving E!'s "Fashion Police," a door has opened up for somebody to take that spot.

And is that somebody NeNe Leakes?

Only one day after Kelly announced her departure, rumors started flying about who would take her place.  Us Weekly says NeNe is being considered, especially now that she has  booming clothing line that she sells on HSN.

Also being considered, supposedly, is Khloe Kardashian.  According to Us:

"She was supposed to do it last time and passed. She may consider doing it again but the offer would have to be really high," the insider says. "It's a lot of extra work for her."

Despite that last sentence being laughable at best, we all know E! wouldn't mind their network being all Kardashian all the time. So we wouldn't be shocked if they gave Khloe some insane offer to talk about fashion.

And about that Zendaya/Guiliana Rancic Oscar hair fallout, the magazine claims:

"They did the Zendaya segment three times," an insider previously told Us. "Three different takes. On the first two takes, Kelly said 'Guys, we can't say this. Zendaya is a friend of the show.'" (An E! rep denied that there were three takes, saying, "There was only one take of Giuliana's comments. Kelly did let the group know Zendaya is a friend of hers.")

We shall see who will replace Kelly....



Speaking of on-screen chicks, Fast 7 star Michelle Rodriguez definitely just put her foot in her mouth.  When asked a few nights ago while leaving Katsuya in Beverly Hills if the rumors were true she's in talks to be the next Green Lantern, she spit off some foolery about minorities needing to stop taking roles from white superheros....and do their own thing.


She attempted to say she was attacking the lack of creativity, but, yeah....


Since then, she has just posted a video attempting to explain what she meant.  But in all actuality, she's still saying the same thing she previously said. And we guess she doesn't realize there is an alternate world Latina version of Green Lantern in the DC Comics -- Jessica Cruz aka Power Ring.  Anyways, here's a few excerpts of her explanation:

What I really meant was that... I think there are many cultures in Hollywood that are not white and that can come up with their own mythology,' she said. We all get it from the same reservoir of life, the fountain of life.


'It doesn't matter what culture you come from. I'm just saying that instead of trying to turn a girl character into a guy or instead of trying to turn a white character into a black character or a Latin character, I think that people should stop being lazy and people should actually make an effort in Hollywood to develop their own mythology.'


'I'm just saying that the different cultures from around the world that are in Hollywood: Latin, black, Asian, [are] considered “minorities” because there aren’t a lot of writers representing them, they should start focusing on making that a serious priority,' she continued.


Or maybe, Michelle, not all minorities are OK with sitting back and waiting for somebody to "write a role specifically for them."  Most would be waiting forever.  And many are not satisfied with playing race-specific characters versus playing a character in EVERYONE can relate to, who happens to be a certain race.  There's a difference.

By the way, based on her school of thought, maybe we should also discuss the number of roles white actors "steal" from minority actors.  But that's another discussion entirely....

R.I.P. Brownstone Member Charmayne "Maxee" Maxwell

Sad news within the R&B community today.  Group member Charmayne "Maxee" Maxwell (top left) has reportedly died.  Confirmation and details inside.

Many of us lived out our teen years to the music of the talented group Brownstone.  But today, one member has passed away.

We confirmed via email with a member of groupmate Nicci Gilbert's PR team, Jakeem Smith, that Charmayne "Maxee" Maxwell has passed away.

Unconfirmed reports by Danish website Her & Nu, who claims they spoke to Maxee's brother Brandon, state a mysterious and fatal fall occurred.  Maxee was reportedly married to Danish music producer Carsten Soulshock and had a son named Nicolaj.

Groupmate Teisha Brown, who joined the group in 2007, also posted a sorrowful message to her late friend:

Brandon Maxwell, Maxee's brother, posted the following as well:


The group, which has seen quite a few member changes over the years, spoke about a comeback attempt last year.

Their songs "Grapevyne," "5 Miles To Empty," and "If You Love Me" were their major hits from 1994 -1998 and they also earned a Grammy nomination. 

Our condolences go out to Maxee and her family and friends during this incredibly sad time.

CHECK OUT OUR BABY BUMP! Ludacris & Wife Eudoxie CONFIRM Rumors & Make Baby Announcement...

Ludacris and Eudoxie are confirming the rumors....they're pregnant!  Check out the pic of the baby bump inside....

Rumors have been swirling for weeks that Eudoxie is at least 6 months pregnant, thanks to a pic floating around where her belly seemed to be quite round underneath her blouse.

She then posted another pic that strategically concealed her tummy.  But folks have been wondering if it's all a cover up. 

When Luda and Eudoxie surprised the world with their impromptu same day NYE surprise proposal and wedding, folks speculated the rush could be due to Eudoxie being pregnant. set the landscape for Ludacris to get full custody of his daughter with Tamika Fuller, which he did just a few weeks ago.

Eudoxie and Luda remained quiet - with the new bride even missing the NBA All Star festivities last month.  And our suspicions were confirmed today when she posted the above pic of the baby bump while the twosome chill on vacay.

She said:

And Luda reposted the pic saying, "beautiful day indeed."

Hmph.  Congrats to the couple!
