12.31.12: President Obama Makes Statement On The Fiscal Cliff + Update

*Vote not likely to happen Monday.  Headed over the "fiscal cliff".

Via L.A. Times:
WASHINGTON – Details of the emerging “fiscal cliff” deal ricocheted through the Capitol on Monday, appearing to please almost no one from either political party, as President Obama urged negotiators toward a conclusion.

A House vote appears unlikely on Monday, even if a deal is finished. The contours of the agreement between Vice President Joe Biden and the Republican leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell, put into sharp focus the compromises that need to be stomached if a deal was to be struck. The outcome remained uncertain as the country prepared to go off the “fiscal cliff.”

Even if agreement could be reached to have a Senate vote before the midnight deadline, when taxes on all Americans would rise if nothing was done, Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) was unlikely to call a vote in the House until Tuesday. “We are very, very close,” said an upbeat McConnell on the Senate floor after Obama spoke on the White House grounds and called on the country to urge lawmakers to finish. “We can do this.”

The emerging deal would raise taxes on income and investments for wealthier Americans – those households making more than $450,000 a year or individuals earning more than $400,000– although the two sides remain at odds over the automatic spending cuts that make up part of the “fiscal cliff.” McConnell and Biden continued talking throughout the afternoon

Monday, as lawmakers prepared to hunker down for a long New Year’s Eve under the dome. A final deal could be voted on first by the Senate, possibly late Monday. One result became increasingly clear, though: With many issues still unresolved, Washington was poised to continue the partisan budget battles that have defined recent years well into 2013. As the sun began to set over the capital on a chilly winter day, rank-and-file lawmakers, both Democrats and Republicans, bristled at what they were being asked to accept.

The office of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the hardscrabble Nevada deal-maker who stepped aside for Biden to negotiate with McConnell, offered a view of the level of concern. A revolving door of lawmakers came and went throughout the day. Liberal Democrats objected that the White House was ceding too much to Republican demands and missing the opportunity for a broader budget deal.

Conservative Republicans were upset at being asked to raise tax rates without reducing the deficit with steep cuts. “Republicans should kill the compromise if there are no spending cuts,” said Erick Erikson, the conservative founder of the influential Red State blog, in a tweet. Both parties were under enormous pressure from their political bases not to give in to what some, including Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), a liberal leader, characterized as simply a “bad deal.”

More than $660 billion in revenue would be raised – far less than the target Obama first set in talks with congressional leaders. The president sought $1.6 trillion in new revenue from a large deficit-reduction package, and at least $800 billion in earlier talks with Republicans over a deal on tax increases.

The agreement would set the top tax rates at 39.6% for income above $450,000 for households and $400,000 for individuals, which is a narrower definition of who is wealthy than Obama once sought, according to a source who was not authorized to discuss the negotiations. The president won reelection campaigning on asking those who earn above $250,000 to contribute more in taxes. Investment income tax rates would also rise for those higher-income households, from the historic low 15% rate on capital gains and dividends to a new 20% rate.

The president had sought to tax dividends at the same rate as ordinary income, and his earlier offer sought to initiate those taxes at the lower $250,000 income threshold. The estate tax, which has been a key sticking point throughout the weekend of negotiations, appears to have been settled. The agreement splits the difference, setting the new rate at 40% on estates valued at more than $5 million – a compromise between today’s 35% rate and the 45% rate Democrats sought on estates of $3.5 million or more.

Americans would benefit from an extension of long-term unemployment benefits, which expired over the weekend, for one full year. One area that hewed closer to Democratic priorities was Obama’s proposal to reinstate the phaseout of personal exemption tax credits and itemized deductions on upper-income households. They had been in place before the George W. Bush-era tax cuts began in 2001, but were done away with over the past decade and would fully expire, with the rest of the tax breaks, on New Year’s Eve.

Congrats: Brandy Engaged To Ryan Press + New Music: 'How High' By Brandy


Congrats to Brandy who became engaged over the Christmas holiday. Additional deets below.

Via US Weekly:
Brandy will ring in the new year with a ring on her finger!

The "Put It Down" singer, 33, is engaged to Ryan Press, her rep confirms to Us Weekly. According to an insider, "They are thrilled and happy and Brandy feels this is so right." Prior to accepting Press' proposal, Brandy had openly expressed her desire to marry the music executive. "I keep hearing about a ring. People keep calling me, hinting to me about it, but I don't know," she told Sister2Sister magazine in August. "I'm going to be patient and let it happen and just let it be. . . I guess it will happen when it's the right time."

That same month, the singer spoke to Us about how Press had restored her faith in men. "I had given up on love a long time ago. It just didn't seem to work for me, so I was single for a very long time," the Moesha star said. "I stopped looking for love and then I ran into my boyfriend." She continued, "He just loves me for who I am. I don't have to camouflage anything for him or put on a mask. I can completely be myself and he loves me so much and I love him just the way he is, too."

This will be the first marriage for the "Put It Down" singer, who has a 10-year-old daughter, Sy'rai, with ex Robert Smith. Brandy released her sixth studio album, Two Eleven, in October, and she currently stars in BET's hit comedy The Game. She next appears in Tyler Perry's Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor. The drama, arriving in theaters March 29, 2013, also stars Jurnee Smollett, Robbie Jones, Kim Kardashian, Jerry Stiller and Vanessa Williams.

Brandy tweeted a new song out on Christmas Day for her fans, titled 'How High'.

Lawrence O'Donnell Reacts To N.R.A CEO Wayne LaPierre's Press Conference + George H.W. Bush's Resignation Letter To N.R.A From 1995

Days after the press conference, the resignation letter former President George H.W. Bush sent to the NRA in the 90's resurfaced on the web. Read the letter in full below.

Via NY Times:

Letter of Resignation Sent By Bush to Rifle Association [Published: May 11, 1995]

May 3, 1995

Dear Mr. Washington,

I was outraged when, even in the wake of the Oklahoma City tragedy, Mr. Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of N.R.A., defended his attack on federal agents as "jack-booted thugs." To attack Secret Service agents or A.T.F. people or any government law enforcement people as "wearing Nazi bucket helmets and black storm trooper uniforms" wanting to "attack law abiding citizens" is a vicious slander on good people.

Al Whicher, who served on my [ United States Secret Service ] detail when I was Vice President and President, was killed in Oklahoma City. He was no Nazi. He was a kind man, a loving parent, a man dedicated to serving his country -- and serve it well he did. In 1993, I attended the wake for A.T.F. agent Steve Willis, another dedicated officer who did his duty. I can assure you that this honorable man, killed by weird cultists, was no Nazi.

John Magaw, who used to head the U.S.S.S. and now heads A.T.F., is one of the most principled, decent men I have ever known. He would be the last to condone the kind of illegal behavior your ugly letter charges. The same is true for the F.B.I.'s able Director Louis Freeh. I appointed Mr. Freeh to the Federal Bench. His integrity and honor are beyond question. Both John Magaw and Judge Freeh were in office when I was President. They both now serve in the current administration. They both have badges. Neither of them would ever give the government's "go ahead to harass, intimidate, even murder law abiding citizens." (Your words) I am a gun owner and an avid hunter.

Over the years I have agreed with most of N.R.A.'s objectives, particularly your educational and training efforts, and your fundamental stance in favor of owning guns. However, your broadside against Federal agents deeply offends my own sense of decency and honor; and it offends my concept of service to country. It indirectly slanders a wide array of government law enforcement officials, who are out there, day and night, laying their lives on the line for all of us.

You have not repudiated Mr. LaPierre's unwarranted attack. Therefore, I resign as a Life Member of N.R.A., said resignation to be effective upon your receipt of this letter.

Please remove my name from your membership list. Sincerely,

[ signed ] George Bush

Sneak Peek: A&E's BATES MOTEL

A&E's highly anticipated new show BATES MOTEL has Hitchcock fans all abuzz.  Every since it was announced the network would be creating the show around iconic director Alfred Hitchcock's equally iconic film PSYCHO, excitement has been building for the new show.

Take a first look at BATES MOTEL.  Deets below.

 Via FearNet:
Ready for your first good look at A&E's upcoming series 'Bates Motel'?Ever since the project was announced, it's been met with much scrutiny and doubt, especially among die-hard Psycho fans and Hitchcock enthusiasts.

But when you've got one of the producers of 'Lost' (Carlton Cuse) and one of the writers of 'Friday Night Lights' (Kerry Ehrin), not to mention the inspired casting of Vera Farmiga (as Mother) and Freddie Highmore (as Norman Bates), well then you've got us intrigued.

The teasers we got a few weeks back were interesting, but now this trailer/making-of featurette really gives us a better look at what to expect from this modern interpretation inspired by 'Psycho'. And it's looking good so far!

With the success of such shows as American Horror Story and The Walking Dead, I think it's time that Norman Bates got his due. What do you guys think?

Victoria & David Beckham's Son Romeo Creates Huge Buzz Starring In New Burberry Ad Campaign

 Via Mashable:
Romeo Beckham, the 10-year-old son of football star David Beckham and designer Victoria Beckham, is making his modeling debut in Burberry's Spring/Summer 2013 campaign, the British design house announced Monday.

The casting announcement lit up Twitter, briefly becoming a worldwide trending topic late Monday morning. It is still trending in the UK as of publication time.

The above video, which features campaign co-stars Edie Campbell and Charlie France, was released in conjunction with the announcement. The campaign itself will be revealed "across the brand’s online and offline platforms throughout the season," per a company statement.

Romeo is the Beckhams' second eldest son. Brooklyn Joseph (born 1999) is the eldest, followed by Cruz David (born 2005) and daughter Harper Seven (born 2011).

Side Note: Romeo rocks the Burberry brand and definitely has a blazing career ahead of him. With Victoria Beckham being an ultra fashion trendsetter and designer, Romeo's career in fashion will be mega successful.

Soooo cannot forget baller David Beckham's gorgeous self, who also has made a successful foray into ad campaigns.

All in the family!

Books [An Interesting Parody]: FIFTY SHADES OF JUNGLE FEVER (The Ghetto Girl Romance Quadrilogy) [Book One] By L.V. Lewis



FIFTY SHADES OF GREY to the second power meets Keisha and Jada from the Block.

If you've wondered how an ethnic girl from the hood might've handled an arrangement with an experienced white Dominant, this is your book. If you'd like to see the sexiest TWIN DOMS in a contemporary romance series in interracial relationships, this is most definitely your book.

Aspiring recording studio owners, Keisha Beale and Jada Jameson, score a rare meeting with venture capitalist Tristan White, and are thrust into a world beyond their wildest imaginations. Street-wise Keisha is startled to realize she wants this rich white man, despite the certainty that he is out of her league. Unable to resist Keisha's sassy, irreverent, and fiercely independent spirit, Tristan knew from day one he wanted her, too--as his first African American submissive.

Upper Class Jada of the Springfield Jamesons has traveled in almost the same circles as the White brothers, and has had a secret crush on Nathan White, the point guard for the Chicago Bulls, for quite some time. Both brothers have succumbed to jungle fever, and want a little coffee in their cream.

Lured by Tristan White and his offer of fronting the capital for her business in exchange for kinky sex, Keisha finds herself with no other option. Keisha is also tortured by a demons from her past, and her inability to come to terms with them threatens to undermine the future of her business and her tumultuous, unconventional relationship with Tristan White.

Erotic, amusing, and in places hilarious, the Ghetto Girl Erotica Trilogy is a parody with a unique take on a Fifty Shades-type story that will take you even further into the BDSM world, and promises to make the vanilla original Fifty Shades Blacker.

The first two books focus on Keisha and Tristan's romance, and the final two focus on Jada and Nathan's.

Happy Reading!

SCANDAL Season 2 - Episode 8 'Happy Birthday, Mr. President' Full Episode + Highlights + Afterbuzz TV Recap + Epi 9 Sneak Peek!

Goodness this show has my emotions going all over the place! Luv it!

Okay so by now like seriously if you're not watching ABC's SCANDAL, you're missing a scrumptiously dynamic ensemble of pure television excellence.

At this point, universities should consider having a course titled 'Scandalology', and have it taught as an elective.

It's just that good on every level.

This week's episode was full of suspense, intrigue, trauma, hella hot OLITZ romance, revelations, shocking twists and the constant edge of your seat drama that SCANDAL does better than any other show.

At the end, your mouth is left hanging open and you realize that you are stunned for a second, and then you breathe and began to process what you just witnessed, knowing full well that all is not what it seems.

Of course for the hardcore SCANDAL fans, a.k.a. GLADIATORS, we poured another glass of wine, grabbed the remote control and watched it again via the DVR. *Sighs*

I have to say just bravo to the entire cast, crew and writers. They bring it EVERY episode.

In this episode the 'Fitz' and 'Olivia' flashback scenes were scorching hot and beautifully romantic. 

The Oval office scene, just.... Lawd!

Then the rose garden scene where 'Fitz' tells 'Olivia' exactly how he feels... *swoons*.  Omg that man!
I wonder if I was the only one smiling like a damn fool watching that scene. LOL

It was so heartbreaking watching the scene where 'Olivia' is drawn to 'Fitz' side of the closet at the White House, picks up one of his NAVY sweatshirts and breakdowns. She had to be strong in public, but the man that she loves, the love of her life has been shot and is fighting for his life! She couldn't hold it in any longer. Kerry Washington owned that scene. It was brilliant.

Okay folks here are some must see highlights, full episode and the awesome Afterbuzz Show. [Big ups to the Youtubers who upload these SCANDAL gems. Y'all rock!]





 Don't miss the Winter Finale of SCANDAL next week, Thursday at 10PM on ABC.

Video Throwback: UNDIVIDED By Blush f/ Snoop Dogg

Jamie Foxx, Kerry Washington & Leonardo DiCaprio Cover VIBE, Discuss DJANGO UNCHAINED


The cast of the upcoming film DJANGO UNCHAINED, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx & Kerry Washington cover VIBE Magazine and discuss the film.  Deets below.



Director Quentin Tarantino certainly isn't known for his subtlety, so it's no surprise that he's tackling the heavy topic of slavery in his next flick Django Unchained, which hits theaters on Christmas Day.

Vibe magazine gathered the A-list stars of the movie — Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington and Jamie Foxx — to chat about their project. Here are some of the highlights:

DiCaprio on playing a slave owner:

"For me, the initial thing obviously was playing someone so disreputable and horrible whose ideas I obviously couldn't connect with on any level. I think it took me to places I didn't even imagine. I remember our first read and it was hard for me to wrap my head around it. My initial response was 'Do we need to go this far? Are we going too far?'"

Washington on getting an on-set education:

"I remember there was this one moment in the script where Jamie's character was put in an awful crazy medieval metal mask. I said, "That's some sick thing Quentin thought up." And when I went to the production office to meet about my wardrobe, I saw into the research office. Twenty photos of real masks like that. It made me sad. ... I didn't even know that they wore masks like that, that people did that to us. It took a Tarantino movie for me to know that that's not some crazy thing out of his imagination. That's how it went down."

Foxx on the importance of the movie:

"Every two, three years there is a movie about the Holocaust because they want you to remember and they want you to be reminded of what it was. When was the last time you've seen a movie about slavery? What we were doing was an acrobatic routine with the highest degree of difficulty. It's a tough script to read. I had both my daughters come down to the plantation and I walk them through and said, 'This is where your people come from. This is your background.'"

Hella Hot Files: TONY GOLDWYN On 'The Talk', Discusses SCANDAL & More!

Side Note: Damn he fine! He even gets freaking hotter as he gets older. He is aging like fine wine.

Mmmmmm.... his voice is like Whoa! Whew!

Anywho if you didn't already know... tune in Thursdays at 10PM on ABC to watch SCANDAL.  Hell it's a 'scandal' if your NOT watching!

OMG AGAIN!!! SCANDAL Season 2 - Episode 7 'DEFIANCE' Full Episode + Highlights + Afterbuzz TV Recap!

Okay dang it I had to remember to breathe last night while watching this show! LOL

Bravo again to Shonda Rhimes, the writers, the cast... they are killing it!

OMG the episode last night was everything! It was giving me life throughout! The build up of the last few seconds of the episode were nerve racking because you could feel something was going to go down.

The tense emotional drama of the President viewing photos of Olivia Pope with Edison, confirming the realization that she had moved on was extraordinary yet difficult to watch. The amazing Tony Goldwyn [Fitz] made that scene, the emotions on his face [anger, pain, jealousy, hurt] were heartbreaking.

The additional story lines in the episode last night were superb as well. The hunting of the 'rigged' voting machines[when Cyrus finds out what his hubby has been up to. Uh oh] and the 'eccentric' billionaire.

Y'all already know I luv this show. This is what happens when you have uber talented writers, actors, crew members giving you the best dang ensemble ever. I shall keep saying it, if you are not watching SCANDAL, you are missing the best show on television.

Rihanna Tweets Photo Of Chris Brown


Rihanna set twitter abuzz with a photo she tweeted of Chris Brown over the weekend. Deets below:


Via ABC:

It was a busy weekend for hip-hop stars Rihanna and Chris Brown: First, Rihanna tweeted a shirtless photo of what appears to be ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, followed by her own topless photo. Then Brown launched into a vulgar attack on comedy writer Jenny Johnson before deactivating his Twitter account altogether.

It all started Saturday with Rihanna’s posting a photo of what looks to be a half-naked Chris Brown lying face-down, his highly recognizable tattoos visible, on a bed covered with “The Simpsons” memorabilia and a handbag.

The “Diamonds” singer posted the photo on Twitter, along with the hashtag “BartObsessed.” Hours earlier, Brown had posted a photo of himself wearing a Bart Simpson jacket. The following day, Rihanna posted her own topless photo, along with the hashtag, “LondonNightLife.”

Although Brown and Rihanna have yet to confirm that they are back on, their latest antics continue to fuel the rumors. Rihanna was photographed Thanksgiving night getting into a car with Brown in Berlin, after attending his concert in the German capital, followed by a nightclub after-party.

Not everyone is pleased with the possibility of their getting back together. Brown got into a Twitter feud Sunday with popular comedy writer Jenny Johnson. Johnson has poked fun at Brown since his 2009 arrest for beating Rihanna, for which he pleaded guilty to assault, but the comedian caught his ire over the weekend after responding to his tweet about how old he looked. “I know! Being a worthless piece of s*** can really age a person,” she tweeted in response.

Brown then hurled sexually graphic insults at her, but Johnson did not back down, even correcting Brown’s spelling, saying: “It’s ‘HO’ not ‘HOE.’” “I have zero respect for a person who seems unapologetic for the terrible crime he committed and shows no signs of changing,” she wrote at the end of the exchange. “Just ask Rihanna if she mad??????” Brown wrote, before he deactivated his account, which was then restored minus the worst tweets.

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Gets Out Of Pocket While THE VIEW Panel Discussed The Chris Brown / Jenny Johnson Twitter Feud!

Elisabeth Hasselbeck stuck her foot in her mouth yet again today on THE VIEW while discussing Chris Brown deleting his twitter account after a twitter battle with unknown comedian Jenny Johnson.

Keep in mind, this Jenny person went after Chris Brown FIRST, insulting him for no apparent reason other than to get her much needed 15 minutes of fame. So Chris Brown responded to the venom throwing Jenny J as he had a right to do.

Well Elisabeth Hasselbeck felt Chris Brown's response was like a 'VERBAL RAPE' against Jenny Johnson. [BLANK STARE]

Elisabeth using the term 'rape' in any way shape or form is slanderous and irresponsible. She is on a platform where she reaches millions of homes daily and to imply what she did was uncalled for. She needs to apologize to Chris Brown on air TOMORROW, and she needs to be reprimanded. 

But what's interesting is that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is such a hypocrite. She insulted sports reporter Erin Andrews while Erin was competing in 'Dancing With The Stars' with a very irresponsible remark about Erin's costumes.

Sad News: Larry Hagman Passes At Age 81 + IDOJ Full Episode

Larry Hagman was one of my faves.

Watched him on classic episodes of 'I Dream Of Jeannie' and the iconic show 'Dallas'.

It was such exciting news when 'Dallas' was resurrected and became a hit all over again.

Larry Hagman will be missed. His talent will live on in the amazing work he left as his legacy.

Thoughts and prayers go out to his family. RIP

Congrats to Tamera & Adam Housley on the birth of their son Aden John Tanner!


 Tamera also tweeted a pic of her precious bundle of joy:


 Additional deets below.

 Via Us Weekly:
Two days after they became first-time parents, Tamera Mowry and Adam Houseley shared the first picture of their son Aden John Tanner via Twitter Nov. 14. "Chillin with my grandma Darlene today! She hooked me up with a cool outfit," the Sister, Sister star, 34, wrote in the voice of her newborn.

Housley, a FOX News correspondent, explained why he and his wife of one year decided to give their baby boy two middle names. "A for me. T for Tamera," the 40-year-old told his Twitter followers. "John [is both] our fathers' middle name."

Several of Tamera's celebrity pals took to Twitter to congratulate the happy couple. "I'm so happy for you. Congrats. He is beautiful," wrote Sara Rue, who is pregnant with her first child. "Play date in a few months?" Community's Yvette Nicole Brown added, "He is perfect! Congrats to you and Adam!"

Tamera's famous twin sister, Tia, spoke to Us Weekly exclusively about her new nephew on Nov. 14. "I've kissed her new bundle of joy at least one hundred times! I couldn't be happier for her." Tia, who welcomed son Cree with husband Cory Hardrict on June 28, 2011, added that she is "so thrilled and happy" to be an aunt. "I now know the love that my sister has for Cree, it is overflowing."

Tamera thanked her fans via Twitter for "all the love and well wishes" on Nov. 14. "Adam and I are very overjoyed with love and feel so blessed. Being a new mommy rocks!"

Full List Of PEOPLE'S 'Sexiest Man Alive' Winners Through The Years, ONLY One African-American Man Has Ever Been Picked!


Congrats to actor/dancer Channing Tatum for being crowned sexiest man alive 2012 by PEOPLE magazine.

In taking a look back at previous winners, it seems to be lacking something. Can you guess what it is?

Here's a list of PEOPLE'S Sexiest Men Alive:

2004: JUDE LAW

Now you would think that whom ever decides the winner would opt not to choose a person TWICE. That screams lack of ability to do one's job. It's not like the pickings are slim. Two words... Idris Elba. Seriously.

Some folks may disagree, but this is ridiculous.

They're basically saying that out of all the SEXY MEN IN ENTERTAINMENT, they had to choose a person twice for the sake of what? Thank goodness for other mainstream magazines that know how to show diversity.

It's pathetic that out of PEOPLE'S twenty seven year SEXIEST MAN ALIVE history, only one AFRICAN-AMERICAN man has been chosen.

Honorable mentions inside the magazine don't count.

Channing Tatum Chosen As People Magazine's 2012 Sexiest Man Alive

Side Note: Yeah okay. He cute. But I STILL don't understand why PEOPLE magazine turns a blind eye to IDRIS ELBA!

The man is hella sexy and his accent.... dear lawd!

What the heck is wrong with PEOPLE magazine? This is getting ridiculous! It's like they are terrified to put a fine, sexy and talented black man on their cover.

The ONLY black man to ever win PEOPLE'S Sexiest Man Alive was Denzel Washington in 1996. See a pattern?

President Obama Responds To Sen. McCain's Criticism of U.N. Amabassador Susan Rice + McCain's Statements

Side Note: This is getting ridiculous. There has been NO evidence to support that the Administration did anything wrong with the handling of Benghazi.

It was devastating news to hear about the four deaths, and our prayers continue to be with the family. 

Republicans are exploiting the deaths of the victims to use it as a political weapon against the Administration.

It is a disgrace for the GOP to continue to use the deaths as a political talking point. The families are grieving for their loss, yet the GOP don't give a crap.

Congrats to President Barack Obama on his re-election win!

President Obama won the electoral vote [303 - 206] and the majority vote [Obama: 59725608 Romney: 57098650].

So excited to see President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden get four more years to continue the great job of running our country.

In case you missed it, check out President Obama's acceptance speech and Mitt Romney's concession speech.


At first, Romney's campaign did not want to admit they had lost the election. They refused to concede. After waiting over an hour, Romney finally conceded.

Republicans were having melt downs on FOX NEWS and twitter, including Karl Rove, Ted Nugent and Donald Trump. Donald Trump even deleted some of his ignorant tweets, but folks already knew where his head was on the results of the election.

To let you know a little about Ted Nugent's character or lack thereof, here is one of his tweets he tweeted just this morning:

 Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav president to destroy America

Oh yes, he clearly have some serious issues.


Last night on the FOX NEWS NETWORK, Karl Rove refused to admit President Obama won the election or the state of Ohio when it was first announced.



 Poor thang can't stand it!!! Too bad!

EPIC MOMENTS: SCANDAL Upgraded To A Full Season, ABC Orders 9 Additional Episodes Of SCANDAL!!!!


On Monday, the news hit like a wave of euphoria!

ABC announced that the BEST and MUST SEE TV show on television, SCANDAL (season 2) would be getting a full season.

So ABC officially ordered the back 9 episodes of the hit SCANDAL, bringing the total number episodes for the season at a scandalously exciting 22 EPICsodes!

This news is definitely an early Christmas gift to the millions of SCANDAL fans a.k.a. GLADIATORS around the world.

Okay so when ABC grants a season three, well y'all will prob here me screaming from every corner of the earth for 24 hours. LOL


Congrats to the incredible cast, writers and production team who create this outstanding output of work. And I have to say, bravo to Shonda Rhimes and the ENTIRE cast (Kerry Washington, Tony Goldwyn, Columbus Short, Jeff Perry, Bellamy Young, Guillermo Diaz, Darby Stanchfied, Katie Lowes and Joshua Malina), this has got to be the best ensemble on television ever. No joke. Additional deets below.

Via The Hollywood Reporter: 

ABC orders additional episodes of NEIGHBORS and SCANDAL.
The freshman comedy starring Jami Gertz and Lenny Venito as a couple who move in to a community populated by aliens who pose as humans (complete with names after famous athletes) has been a modest performer for the network on Wednesdays.

ABC picked up three additional scripts for the critically panned series in early October, marking its first moves of the fall season. The network has also added additional scripts for first-year series Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue. The fate of freshman musical drama Nashville, meanwhile, remains unclear.

Scandal, meanwhile, will see its sophomore season grow from 13 episodes to a full season of 22 hours of the Kerry Washington political fixer drama from Grey's Anatomy boss Shonda Rhimes. Initially invisioned as a British-style limited run series similar to State of Play, the freshman season consisted of seven episodes.

The Thursday drama has been a constant performer on Thursday nights, holding steady with a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49. Rhimes told THR in July that the second-year drama will start out with a season-long arc and potentially two should the series expand from its initial order for 13 episodes.

"We want to keep telling stories in that manner and because we're doing 13 episodes and if we get more than that, we'll be telling two different season-long arcs," Rhimes said. "We came back nervous -- can we top what we did last season -- and now we're all really excited because we figured out how we can."

Scandal's full-season order comes after ABC added additional episodes of returning series Castle, The Middle, Grey's Anatomy and The Middle. Rhimes' third ABC series, Private Practice, will end its run after its initial 13 episodes.
Okay. So like if your NOT watching this amazing show... here's a snippet of what you are missing. Thank me later. LOL :
