Tyler Perry used his mass email chain to send out a message to the masses regarding the constant slander and rumors surrounding Bobbi Kristina lately. Check it out below LEAVE THIS BABY ALONE AND STOP THE LIES PLEASE!!! I woke up this morning to my publicist calling me saying that there were reports that Bobbi Kristina walked off the set of “For Better Or Worse”. NOT TRUE AT ALL PEOPLE!!! There is no way that she could have walked off the set because we have finshed taping the season. After Whitney’s funeral, Krissi and I spent a long time talking about her goals and dreams. She said she wanted to act. That’s when I decided to write her into “For Better Or Worse”. I thought that there would be no better way for me to help her move through the grieving than by giving her something to focus on. The one thing that I learned after my mother’s death is that you have to keep busy and you have to be around people who you can trust, so that when you do grieve you can do it in the saf

Stephen J. Hill , President of Music Programming & Specials for BET Networks, confirms the news in a statement: “Today, after seven exciting years, 106 & Park hosts Terrence J and Rocsi announced that they will be leaving the show. It is no secret that there are a number of opportunities coming their way and we’re fortunate that they’ve been with 106 & Park for so long. They will be staying on the show for a while, so that we can have a “victory lap” — a celebration of their years at the helm of 106 & Park — before their departure. Terrence J and Rocsi are destined for great success and we at BET Networks will always take pride in being their original home — and be a place where I hope they’ll always feel welcome.” SOURCE GlobalGrind

Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell, stars of ABCs Modern Family, did an okay job hosting the awards...there were def some awkward moments. The 2012 Billboard Awards opened up with a performance from LMFAO. Of course they performed the same song they perform EVERYWHERE they are invited to. The Billboard Award for Social Media Artist of the world went to Justin Bieber....anyone shocked?
