EXCLUSIVES: BET's "The Black Carpet" CANCELLED!+ "Real Housewives of DALLAS" Set To Go?

We've found out some exclusive tidbits going on in TV land. With all those cuts Viacom talked about making last week, it looks like BET's gossip and entertainment news show "The Black Carpet" is dunzo. Toure, one of the show's hosts, confirmed that it's indeed over with. Interesting, since that was pretty much the only show on BET that wasn't wack as all hell. Even though I don't think people were even watching.

Aicia Keys Does "The Tyra Show"

On a show airing Friday, December 5th, Alicia Keys stops by “The Tyra Banks Show” to discuss everything from rumors of her performing at the Inaugural Ball to the fundraiser event she recently hosted for the charity she co-founded “Keep A Child Alive.” “The Tyra Banks Show” also surprises one of the HIV-positive children whose life has been saved by Alicia’s charity. Noah, a 15-year-old aspiring musician from Rwanda, performs on the show his original song co-written by producer Swiss Beats with Tyra and Alicia serving as his backup dancers. Tyra also surprises Noah with clothing, an ipod, a digital music recorder to record his music with and a $5,000 donation to his family. Cute. Here's what AK said about rumors circulating that she will be performing at President-elect Barack Obama’s Inaugural Ball:
“I’m very excited about that. That’s very very exciting. It’s such a historic moment. I’m very excited. Nothing is confirmed yet though.  I can’t confirm that…If it were to happen…I would have to put together something special.”
And she almost had an alter ego stage name :
“Wild…Alicia Wild. Its fierce, its rebellious, its tough…I was like, ‘Ma, What do you think?’ and she’s like, ‘It sounds like a stripper.’”
Glad that didn't happen.  We have enough multiple personalities running around these parts. More about AK on Tyra when you read the rest...

Business Of Showbusiness

Gabrielle Union may have a new acting gig lined up.  She's set to to star in an upcoming NBC detective drama.  It's about the drama surrounding a detective (to be played by Union) who must race to save someone's life before it's too late.  This will be her second time teaming up and helping to develop a series with writer Frank Spotnitz, who wrote the last series Gabby starred in "Night Stalker".  No word on when the new show will begin taping or airing. And speaking of NBC, writer and creator Mara Brock Akil is set to create a new series for the network.  The "Girlfriends" and "The Game" head honcho is likely going to bring her fabulosity to the NBC network to write the script and executive produce a buddy comedy based on the 2006 book Making Friends With Black People.  According to BV:
About the state of race relations in the U.S., the project is being developed as a sitcom for NBC, and Salim Akil, her husband, is also on board too.  'Making Friends' will center on two guys -- one African-American and one white -- who become close friends, but who don't necessarily see things the same way. Nick Adams, a standup comic, wrote the book as a humorous look at how people dance around issues of race. He'll serve as a co-producer on the project.
By the way, Mrs. Akil is one of only two black women producing multiple shows on the air for 2007-08 season, Shonda Rhimes (creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice) being the other.  I see my Soror is doing fabulous things...
