Flavor Flav Gets New Variety Show Called "Flavor Flav's Vegas"
(FreshAsFrankie) Although Flavor Flav is part of one of the most iconic and impactful groups of all-time, the Public Enemy hypeman may be just as popular for his stint as a reality TV star. Flav jumped on the celebrity reality TV wave before it became the entertainment cash-cow it has become today. But aside from a few appearances here and there, Flav hasn’t been in the public eye as much as before but that seems to be changing.

Flavor Flav has just signed on to star in his own talk/variety show Flavor Flav’s Vegas. He said, “I always dreamed of being a variety show host, and I think it’s about time, […] And Las Vegas needs a talk show. I want to be the one to bring Vegas its first real live talk show. It won’t just be me interviewing guests, but also I’m going to have a variety of people coming through my show that are in movies, television, etc.”

Flavor Flav’s Vegas will be produced by Leon Knowles who has worked on shows such as Arsenio Hall Show, The Talk, Last Comic Standing and America’s Got Talent. Fans should also be in for a treat as Teddy Riley will be the show’s music director.

The singer/actor made the announcement of the donation on his social media account on Sunday writing, “I’ve been on with lawyers all day but our family and our sister Jada-Pinkett Smith and my brother Will Smith just sent us 5 million to help keep us afloat.”

He went as far as to continue to post allegations that he was still waiting for the check from the couple to clear. However, according to TMZ sources close to Will and Jada vehemently deny giving Tyrese any money. Reportedly, The Smiths are worried that Tyrese is having a mental breakdown while in the midst of the court battle with his ex-wife over the custody of their 10-year-old daughter, Shayla.

Cam Newton Rolls Eyes at Reporter; Abruptly Walks out of Press Conference

Cam Newton Rolls Eyes at Reporter; Abruptly Walks out of Press Conference

(FreshAsFrankie) Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton‘s contentious relationship with the media was exacerbated Wednesday after the 28-year-old walked out of a press conference mid-interview.

Things were going smoothly until a Charlotte Observer reporter questioned Newton about his team’s offense.

“The big plays, the big chunk plays that get you that energy you’re talking about, is this offense – I know you had several at Detroit and New England – do you guys have the wherewithal to do that consistently, week in and week out?” he asked.

Newton, visibly annoyed, rolled his eyes and simply responded, “Next question.” As a reporter began asking one, Newton abruptly turned and walked away from the podium.

The Panthers quickly went into damage control, chalking the incident up to Newton believing he had answered enough questions for the week.

“Cam didn’t intend to be discourteous toward any specific media member,” the team said in a statement. “In his mind after answering questions for nine minutes he had fulfilled his obligations.”

Newton was last in the news a couple of weeks ago when he mocked a female reporter for asking him about his receivers’ routes.

“It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes,” he said.

The comment created an enormous backlash, with Newton facing accusations of sexism.

Sad Day In America Trump Pardons Anti-Immigrant Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Trump Pardons Anti-Immigrant Sheriff Joe Arpaio
(FreshAsFrankie) I can’t believe how these damn republican are just doing what they choose with no repercutions. Former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio was excused from having to do prison time for criminal contempt on Friday, August 25. Arpaio received a Presidential pardon from Donald Trump that critics say he never consulted with the Department of Justice over.

Arpaio was found guilty of having disobeyed the 2011 orders of a judge who demanded that he discontinue the outlawed racial profiling tactics his office was using to bust down undocumented migrants. Many had suspected that Trump would bless Arpaio, who was a staunch supporter of his candidacy. Local politicians, including Phoenix’s mayor, had expressed worry that the President would cause a firestorm by choosing to pull the trigger during his rally in the city this past week. Trump didn’t go through with the move that very day, but he did hint that a pardon was coming down the pike.

A statement issued by the White House cited the 85-year-old Arpaio’s age and 50 years of service in law enforcement, and heralded his “life’s work of protecting the public from the scourges of crime and illegal immigration.” Arpaio would respond with a couple of tweet’s thanking the President, one of which read, “Thank you @realdonaldtrump for seeing my conviction for what it is: a political witch hunt by holdovers in the Obama justice department!”

Two White Girls Show Up to Howard University with MAGA Hats

(FreshAsFrankie) Two white high schoolers found themselves in a precarious situation when they had lunch at Howard University, one of the most revered HBCU‘s, with MAGA (Make America Great Again) hats on. One of the girls, Allie Vandee, took to Twitter to talk about her experience and claims of being harassed while in the university’s dining hall. According to Vandee, when she and her friend Sarah entered the dining hall they encountered one man who yelled “F*ck y’all” while another man supposedly stole Sarah’s cap before having it returned.

Vandee claims that she was unaware of being on an HBCU campus but her tweets with “#noshame” show a level of insensitivity and audaciousness during this current racial climate.
