Dancing With The Stars new cast

I used to be a huge fan of Dancing With The Stars but then Brandy lost to Bristol Palin I was completely over the show. It always seems like the last season was lackluster. But they really pulled out the stops this year. They def went above and behind to attract the "black" crowd. Check out who joins the cast below.

  • Gladys Knight, 67 – The eight-time Grammy winner is paired with pro hoofer Tristan MacManus.
  • Melissa Gilbert, 47 -- The actress-writer-producer, best known for her role as Laura Ingalls Wilder on "Little House on the Prairie," will dance alongside the bad boy of the ballroom Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
  • Jack Wagner, 52 -- The soap star had memorable roles in daytime and primetime with "General Hospital" and "Melrose Place," and he's hoping to have memorable moves with partner Anna Trebunskaya.
  • Gavin DeGraw, 35 -- Singer-songwriter DeGraw, who sang the theme song to "One Tree Hill," is paired with last season's pro champ, Karina Smirnoff.
  • Donald Driver, 37 -- The Green Bay Packers wide receiver will have a shot at ballroom glory with pro Peta Murgatroyd.
  • Roshon Fegan, 20 -- This Disney Channel star will waltz alongside Chelsie Hightower.
  • Katherine Jenkins, 31 -- Jenkins, an operatic pop star from Wales, is set to dance with pro Mark Ballas.
  • William Levy, 31 -- Actor and former model Levy made his mark in Jennifer Lopez's steamy video, "I'm Into You," and he'll have a chance to make a mark on the "Dancing" stage with partner Cheryl Burke
  • Maria Menounos, 33 -- The actress and "Extra" host has three-time "Dancing" champ Derek Hough on her side.
  • Martina Navratilova, 55 -- Former tennis pro and sports commentator Navratilova will learn her steps from Tony Dovolani.
  • Sherri Sheperd, 44 -- "The View" cohost and actress will dance with the ballrooms other Chmerkovskiy -- Val.
  • Jaleel White, 35 -- He's best known for his role as Steve Urkel on the '90s hit "Family Matters," and TV audiences might soon know him for his fancy footwork beside partner Kym Johnson. SOURCE

Im most excited to see Jaleel White, Gladys Knight, and Donald Driver. Jaleel White has been branded as "Urkel" for so long thats its like people don't take him serious as an actor. Gladys Knight is such a legend, I really think she is going to bring in the majority of viewers to the show. And of course Im excited to see Donald Driver....Im from Wisconsin. Lol.
The new season starts March 19 on ABC

The end of the Breakfast Club is near

The Breakfast Club has been on air for 9 years this month, and is going strong with ratings, engagement, and seems to be adding new markets every month...but I think the end is near.
I sound crazy right? I know you're thinking, Tammy how and why would you think that a successful morning show would have it's future in the balance? Well, there are a couple of reasons, let's go through them. I mean this could all be in my head and I’m projecting, or I could have some legitimate points and the near future will tell.
Shock jock radio value going down- The Breakfast Club has been known for it's shock jock style of radio for years. Charlemagne says the most outlandish things in interviews, creates false narratives that he doesn't even agree with for hot takes, and Envy always goes against the grain and disagrees with the masses on any given topic, just to disagree. Podcasting is huge right now, put five people in a room and at least three of them have a podcast; just at the…

15 Black women that need to host SNL

Saturday Night Live has been around for 45 years this fall and has had a series of hosts, of all ethnicities, ages, and entertainment occupations. They've had hosts that are comedians, actors, singers, rappers, and more. Now, while the diversity has been decent...I would love to see more black women as hosts. I've compiled a list of black women I think would do a damn good job at hosting the late night show. Let's get started shall we...
Tracee Ellis Ross - Tracee is a no brainer and should be at the top of everyone's list when thinking of who should host when they are doing the planning over at NBC. Tracee has perfect comedic timing, which we've seen time and time again on Girlfriends, and now on Black-ish we’ve seen her transform into Rainbow Johnson, and also into the other smaller roles they play when they have episodes within their episodes, if that makes sense. Her personality is playful and fun, which is evident through her Instagram. So, she’s topping this l…

Grown-ish is a far cry from A Different World

When it was announced that Black-ish, the hit ABC sitcom about an affluent African American family doing their best to immerse their kids in the their ethnic culture while still enjoying the fruits of their labor, would be getting a spinoff following the oldest daughter, Zoe Johnson, as she headed to college people were somewhat excited. When it was pegged to be an updated and more current version of the hit series A Different World people were more than excited and the show was highly anticipated. We were expecting to see Zoe navigate life as a college freshmen, out of the sheltered and, low key white bread, lifestyle. We were anticipating seeing her explore more of her life after highschool, then it aired…

Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Grown-ish, I think it’s entertaining, but it’s a far cry from A Different World. I didn’t expect the show that be identical to A Different World, mainly since Zoe wasn’t attending an HBCU, so there’s that, but I think the show is missing the mark on …
