PATTY JACKSON'S 4-1-1
WEEK ENDING: September 26th, 2014

Tyler Perry: Don't Be Shy.... Let's Make A Baby! The film-making phenom and mogul announced the big news at his private 45th birthday party. The mother is Model Gelila Bekele. The 28-year old is reported to be seven months along. The people at Perry's birthday party had no idea the announcement was coming, but sources say he is very excited about fatherhood. Meanwhile on the big screen front, Perry teams up with Ben Affleck for the new movie Gone Girl. In the movie, Affleck's character is accused of murdering his missing wife and Perry plays his lawyer. Gone Girl opens in theaters October 3rd.

In more Tyler news, he has a new stage production coming to Philadelphia. Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned will be at the Merriam Theatre September 30th –October 5th. Tickets are on sale now.

Kevin Hart is coming to Dancing With The Stars. He’s going to be a guest judge as regular Len Goodman takes a night off. Tavis Smiley was booted off last week. He is currently on tour promoting his new book about the Reverend, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Smiley has often referred to King as the Greatest American. Death Of A King is the story of the civil rights leader's final year of life.

Singer Chrisette Michele has changed her mind. It's her prerogative and she's using it to return to R&B Divas. She'll begin with the reunion show, which is currently airing on TV One.

Is Fantasia married?!!!! The former American Idol champ has been all over social media showing off her new man. Kendall Taylor has known Fannie for two weeks. Now Mr. Taylor not only has the looks, but is the C.O.O. of a courier service that he's been a partner in for years. However, Taylor also has a record that includes guns, beating women, child support and drugs. Could Fantasia be moving too fast again..... remember Antwaun Cook? Well, this might trump that affair because the two have been reportedly married. As of press time, we're still waiting to see a ring and hear from Fantasia herself.

Comedienne Sheryl Underwood, from CBS' The Talk and The Steve Harvey Morning Show, says she was stabbed in the back by The Queens Of Comedy: Miss Laura Hayes, Sommore and Adele Givens. Underwood took to her national show The Talk to confess she heard the Queens trash her in during a conference call they thought she wasn't on. Underwood says the other comediennes were trying to exclude her from a proposed comedy tour by trashing her act, her looks and just her in general. Underwood brought this to light as part of the secrets revealed segment on The Talk, and claims she kept the whole matter to herself all this time not even telling the ladies. Sommore has yet to respond to the charges. Miss Laura took to social media with a picture of a snatched off wig on the floor. Her only statement was now she has to come off her hustle to respond to the BS. Adele Givens totally denied Sheryl Underwood's side of the story, and says they didn't trash her. Givens also couldn't understand why this has never come up before, or why it had to be aired on The Talk, which really isn't aimed at the African American audience the comediennes aim to.

Being Mary Jane and Power Star Omari Hardwick is catching flack for his interracial marriage. It became all the buzz on social media now that the actor's star is on the rise, and the postings were quite raw. Hardwick had to “Clap Back” as the young people say. He called out his family's critics on his twitter and pointed out the ugliness of hate they possess.

The Queen Of Soul is returning with a new album Tuesday, September 30th. Aretha Franklin Sings The Songs Of The Great Divas. Franklin will be appearing on David Letterman on September 29th. Featured on The Queen's album are Adele's Rolling In The Deep, Gladys Knight & The Pips' Midnight Train To Georgia, Chaka Khan's I’m Every Woman, Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive and Etta James' At Last. Babyface reunites with Franklin as one of the producers of this project.

In more Dancing With The Stars news, there's backlash for the clear frontrunner, former Silver Spoons and Fresh Prince Of Bel Air Star Alfonso Ribeiro. Ribeiro has taken the competition by storm, but some are calling foul because of his past. Before his sitcom stardom, Ribeiro was already a professional actor and dancer. He was on Broadway as the Tap Dance Kid, and thirty years ago, he danced with Michael Jackson in a big budget Pepsi commercial. Is this giving “Carlton” an unfair advantage, or are the haters just hating?!!!!!!

What’s going on with Nicki Minaj's butt?!!!! Is it real, or is it plastic surgery? Minaj has been on a roll with her latest project, The Pink Print featuring Anaconda, and she’s been appearing on a variety of concerts and TV shows. Unfortunately, as she performs, so does her butt…..it just moves around weird....what is going on?!!!

The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air's original “Aunt Viv,” Actress Janet Hubert, wants to do a Fresh Prince Of Bel Air reunion in memory of the late Actor James Avery, who played “Uncle Phil. Avery died last year. Don’t hold your breath for this reunion. Since Hubert was booted from the show and replaced with Daphne Maxwell Reid, she has been on a very public campaign bashing the show's star, Will Smith. Smith has moved on from their TV feud, but Hubert continued with her public bashing. The only way a reunion could happen is if Smith would star and give his blessing.

The new season of The View is great for the ratings, but rough for its stars. Despite a strong ratings kickoff, Rosie O'Donnell believes the ABC daytime talker is not the show she signed up for. O'Donnell is still upset that Whoopi Goldberg remains moderator and retains the big chair. O’Donnell was hoping Goldberg would leave on her own, but that isn't happening anytime soon. Also, O'Donnell isn't feeling new co-hosts Actress Rosie Perez and Former George W. Bush Communications Director and Political Commentator Nicolle Wallace, a conservative. O'Donnell wanted some say in the new co-hosts. Are we flashing back to O'Donnell's first short-lived run on The View? Hmmmmmmmmmm!

Has Actress Paula Patton found new love since leaving hubby Singer Robin Thicke? Patton has been spotted with a young musician named Zak Waters.

Gabrielle Union, the new Mrs. Dwayne Wade, has contacted the F.B.I. to see who is responsible for leaking nude photos of her. Union says the leak was not a violation of her privacy, but a digital hate crime. Union joins a growing list of celebrities who take nude pictures of themselves then grow outraged when the pictures go public. I say don’t take nude pictures! Then you won’t have to worry about leaking photos.

The Aaliyah movie, Aaliyah: Princess Of R&B, will air on Lifetime Saturday, November 15th. Nickelodeon Star Alexandra Shipp plays the late singer, and Wendy Williams is the executive producer of the project.

 

The best-selling erotic novel Addicted by Zane is being made into a big screen movie starring Sharon Leal and Boris Kodjoe. And speaking of Boris, he's on the cover of Upscale magazine. Meanwhile, Addicted opens October 10th.

Is he leaving or staying?!! Kenan Thompson, of Kenan & Kel fame and SNL, created quite an uproar when it was announced (I think prematurely) that he was leaving Saturday Night Live. Thompson has been the longest running African American on the show with 13 years under his belt. Sources from the show say he is not leaving. But, don’t be surprised if he bolts after this season to start a career in Los Angeles with his family. Meanwhile, SNL is getting its first African American Weekend Update Anchor by way of The Daily Show contributor and stand up comedy's Michael Che.

So how did On The Run do for HBO with Jay-Z and Beyonce? The ratings were less than spectacular for the concert special pulling in 888,000 viewers for the night. Could it be so many went to the show in person, or could it be Jay-Z and Beyonce fatigue? I hear the fabulous couple are working on a new album together. I loved the special, and it showed these two really love each other.

Singer Gladys Knight is returning to TV. Knight has joined the cast of the FOX drama Empire. The Lee Daniels hip hop music drama debuts in January of FOX and stars Terrence Howard, Taraji P. Henson, and Gabourey Sidibe.

 ::::: UNDERGROUND BUZZ ::::::

This Rapper and this Model couldn't work it out. While it isn't a shock to anyone, both are a lot to handle if you're in a relationship with either one. Was it career, substance abuse or a good hard look in the mirror then at each other that did it?
