Weekend Hires & Fires & Diddy

In other news, D.L. Hughley's CNN show "D.L. Hughley Breaks The News" has been canceled. A lot of folks ripped on it about how horrible it was, but it was actually one of the network's highest rated shows. But it looks like the cancellation was mainly because it's what D.L. wanted. Here's CNN's statement:
"D.L. approached CNN about being permanently based in Los Angeles, where his family lives.

T.I. Covers VIBE+"ANTM" Gets Short

T.I. is covering the upcoming April issue of VIBE magazine. The controversial star's feature is a prelude to his upcoming prison sentence where he will serve a year and a day for charges related to his illegal possession of firearms.

Beyonce talked about her divalicious "frugalness" to the UK's Daily Mirror recently. She says:
"Honestly, I’m very frugal. I haven’t bought a car since I was 16 or any diamonds since I was 17," she said. "I have a lot of property. I’ve invested my money and I don’t have to make any more, thank God, because I’m set. I’m now able really to be free and just do things that make me happy." Discussing her reasons for being careful with her cash, she said: "I want to have a long career, be respected and not go off track. It’s an effort to stay grounded."
Interesting. And at Essense's Women In Hollywood Luncheon the other day, Halle Berry got extra teary eyed when accepting an award and talking about her daughter Nahla:
"As a woman, I thought it was all about work and accomplishments. Then this little baby comes along and says that it's not about that...I'm complete. I have more to offer my craft because [my daughter] makes me indelibly better every day."

Dwyane Wade Claps Back At Siohvaughn!+DWTS Promo Shots

So Dwyane Wade wasn't satisfied with his estranged wife Siohvaughn withdrawing her allegations that D-Wade's dirty deeds and cheating ways left her with a STD. He's now suing her AND her 2 lawyers for $50,000 a piece. He says his character was defamed, his personal life put on blast, and the ish was just embarrassing. Here's a snippet of his statement to the Associated Press:
"It has been difficult to see false allegations, rumors and gossip repeatedly discussed in public about my personal life. I had no other choice but to file this action in order to clear my name."
D-Wade's lawyer's statement:
"Mr. Wade has been the victim of a reckless campaign by Siohvaughn Wade and her lawyers to publicly humiliate him and damage his reputation. To clear the public record from these false and malicious allegations, we have filed a defamation suit in court ... and will seek appropriate compensation for damages."
And Sioh's lawyer's response:
"We believe there's absolutely no merit to it. I believe that the lawsuit will get dismissed. It seems interesting to me Wade would file a lawsuit like this when he supposedly wants to keep a low profile. This lawsuit will put his entire private and social life in full view of the public."
This ish is like a scandalicious tennis match--back and forth with the he say she say. And I have a feeling it's going to get messier. Siohvaughn told the media today that Dwyane horribly severed his relationship their sons. Their youngest son cries uncontrollably when Dwyane's around because he doesn't know Dwyane is his father. Just a mess... Lil Kim and others take their first "Dancing With The Stars" pics when you read the rest...

J-Hud & Fam Pre-Grammys+Poprah Makes A Comeback+T.D. Jakes' Son ARRESTED!

Remember the loud 40 year old talkative drama queen Poprah from "I Want To Work For Diddy"?  Well she's getting her own segment on a new show debuting on CW network this summer.  Here's what her reps sent over:
With other on-air projects in the works, Poprah is also lending her expertise and name recognition to a historic new reality show called "The Write Stuff" that will debut during the summer of 2009 in over 20 cities throughout the country on the CW Network. Executive Produced by Cyrus A. Webb of Shadow Play Entertainment and Celebrity Sports & Talent Agent Glenn Toby the show will take 14 contestants who believe they have what it takes to be the next big thing in publishing through challenges that will test whether or not they really have 'the write stuff'. At stake will be a book deal for the winner and over $16,000 in prizes to aide them in making their book a success. "We are excited about Poprah being a part of this project with us," says Webb,33. He first was introduced to Poprah in 2008 as she was competing on I WANT TO WORK FOR DIDDY. "She has alot to offer, and I think she will be a great asset."
Don't know about taking career advice from someone who couldn't win a show about getting a career, but it'll be entertaining nonetheless.  I just know they better not had removed "The Game" for this ish. So Jennifer HUdson's family members, including her sister Julia Hudson (second from left), accompanied her to the Grammys.  And they took lots of pics before the big show to remember the occasion.
