2012 BET Awards Fashion: Nicki Minaj, Brandy, Kerry Washington & More!

July 2nd, 2012 10:00am EDT
Nicki Minaj BET Awards
Some of the big guns such as Beyonce & Jay-Z didn't attend the BET Awards on Sunday, but that didn't stop the fun and excitement for other R&B and hip hop stars.

Nicki Minaj, who won the award for "Best Female Hip Hop Artist," showed off her quirky signature style in skintight snake patterned pants, a bright yellow bral and short brown leather jacket.

Brandy wore a very short button-down shirt dress that showed off the tattoos on her feet and ankles.

Actress Taraji P. Henson was a bright spot on the red carpet in a bright turqoise dress and gold strappy sandals.

'The Game' Recap: 'Drink, Pray, Love' (5.06)

February 7th, 2012 11:41pm EST
The Game
This week's The Game continues to pile on the drama for everyone involved, to the point where these once-beloved characters are becoming caricatures.

Malik is selling his huge mansion. Not because he's matured and realized he doesn't need it, but because it's another opportunity for him to be whinging and insisting there's nothing wrong with him. Now, this plot development would have made sense if it stood for something. But as we have to listen to "It's So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday," it's hard to feel sympathetic for a guy who brought the situation on himself. We're suppose...

'The Game' Recap: 'Grand Opening, Grand Closing' (5.05)

January 31st, 2012 11:45pm EST
The Game
This week's episode of The Game sees Jason get it together - but the rest of the show's still working on that, if what else happens is any indication of the rest of season five.

Jason and Chardonnay are attempting some form of a relationship, which involves Jason being cheap as usual and Chardonnay being one of those people who talks during an entire movie. He suggests they start dating after their annulment, but she's not interested. The next day, Jason drags both Derwin and Malik to the set of his new TV show, just so he can break the news of his drunken marriage and ask for rela...

'The Game' Recap: 'The Black People Episode' (5.04)

January 24th, 2012 11:37pm EST
The Game
If you hadn't guessed from the title, this episode of The Game plays the race card. Unfortunately, that's not a good move.

There's still plenty of bad blood between Mel and Tasha, which spills out during planning for the Saber Sunbeam fashion show. Tasha has recruited NeNe Leakes and Mel is not impressed. One of the other Sunbeams (who happens to be white) tries to get Tasha replaced as head of the fashion show. This is all another setup for another fight between Mel and

Likewise, Derwin and Malik are still tetchy with one another, so Derwin starts chatting with new QB Quan Kirkland (Ch...

'The Game' Recap: 'No Money, Mo' Problems' (5.03)

January 17th, 2012 11:41pm EST
The Game
After The Game came back strong with last week's premiere, it hits the skids with this week's episode, which feels all too familiar and not necessarily in a good way.

Tasha talks to Malik about making easy money by going to J.J. Abrams' son's bar mitzvah (first name check of the new season!), while Derwin tells Melanie that he's landed a lucrative Verizon endorsement, thanks to his new manager Irv. Mel isn't thrilled that he didn't tell her before re-hiring Irv, leading Derwin to give her a spiel that involves him comparing himself to Charlie Sheen (really?). Someone was dropped on hi...

'The Game' Recap: 'Skeletons/The Truth Pact' (5.01/5.02)

January 10th, 2012 11:18pm EST
The Game
The Game is back for its fifth season, after season four was both record-setting and sometimes uneven. Which one would season five be? Maybe even both?

As with the opener last season, our teaser is full of important information: Melanie and Derwin still have to talk about her abortion, there's a body in someone's garage, and Jason and I would both like to know when the hell he got married. Drinking too much will do that to you, my friend.

Twelve hours before all that nonsense, Mel and Derwin are leaving the doctor's office that we left them in at the end of last season. They run i...

TV on DVD: 'Doctor Who' & 'The Game' Reviewed

December 8th, 2011 1:00pm EST
Doctor Who
This week in TV on DVD, we look at new seasons for two cult favorites: the BBC's Doctor Who: The Complete Sixth Series and CBS DVD's The Game: The Fourth Season.

Doctor Who: The Complete Sixth Series (BBC Home Entertainment)

The Show: Matt Smith's edition of Doctor Who has endeared itself to fans and critics alike. Smith's second full series in the TARDIS is full of energy - and incredibly complicated, as we learn the truth of River Song's (Alex Kingston) true identity and wonder about The Doctor's final fate.

When Who is good, it's really good. The opening two-parter ("The Impossi...

Wendy Raquel Robinson Tweets 'The Game' Renewed For Season Five

April 6th, 2011 10:13am EDT
The Game
The Game star Wendy Raquel Robinson has just tweeted that the series has been renewed for a fifth season.

The news was reasonably expected as the series pulled in an average of 4.4 million viewers all season and ranked as either the #1 or #2 cable program on Tuesday nights. It's worth noting, however, that number's significantly down from the 7.7 million who watched when the show returned in January.

No official word has yet been given from BET.

UPDATE: I just spoke with co-star Coby Bell, who tells me he's been informed that the show has been picked up for season five. Even in the ...

'The Game' 4.12 'The Right To Choose' Recap and Review

March 30th, 2011 1:40am EDT
The Game
We've come to the end of the season that fans built: the season four finale of The Game. For a variety of reasons, I feel like the fans deserved better.

Let's get to the action:

Melanie & Derwin

If you missed last week's episode, Melanie really, really wants a baby. She's frustrated that she's not pregnant by now, which leads her to such interesting thoughts as wondering if the microwave irradiated her ovaries. (I can't answer that, but I can say that if you put Christmas lights in the microwave, fun things happen.) The two visit a doctor for help, and that's where we learn that Mel...

'The Game' 4.11 'Death Becomes Her' Recap and Review

March 23rd, 2011 1:44am EDT
The Game
Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse on The Game, they somehow find a way to get even messier. It's time to raise the stakes now that the season finale is just a week away! Unfortunately, the stakes don't raise quite as much as you'd expect.

Tasha

Tasha is at The Vault intending on getting drunk, since between last week's drama with her son and the return of ex-boyfriend Dante, she has plenty of stress that needs to be drowned in booze. I immediately think that this can't go well, and I'm right: she gets picked up by a new beau, who tells her that he's dying - as the...

'The Game' 4.06 'Didn't You Know Who I Was?' Recap And Review

February 16th, 2011 1:41am EST
The Game
The drama hit an all-new high in last week's episode of The Game, so now what?

More drama, of course! Beginning with everyone's favorite spoiled star quarterback, who reveals...well, what I've been suspecting all along.

Malik, Derwin & Jason

Still in rehab, Malik is not enjoying group therapy (as if we expected he would?), while he continues to deny that he has any sort of problem whatsoever. "Were you a jackass before the drugs?" one of his fellow patients inquires, but he brushes it off. Later that night, he tries to hit on Jenna, a supermodel also in residence. He tells her, "I...

'The Game' 4.05 'Men In Crisis' Recap And Review

February 9th, 2011 1:33am EST
The Game 4.05
For the second week in a row on The Game, the episode title is incredibly appropriate; last week saw Malik check himself into rehab. That's obviously his crisis, but what's going on in the lives of Derwin and Jason that would make that title need to be plural? Well, there's no Jason for the second straight week, but Derwin has plenty of drama to make up for his absence.

We open with Tasha, Kelly and Melanie doing shots at Tasha's house, and Mel is unhappy about Janay, yet again. "I'm so sick of her putting her stupid hooks in Derwin," she complains, getting little sympathy from her g...

'The Game' 2.04 'It Was All Good Just A Week Ago' Recap And Review

February 2nd, 2011 1:38am EST
The Game BET
The title of this week's The Game is fitting: last week, everything was at least salvageable, until Malik had to go and get himself arrested. Apparently, he didn't pay attention to those anti-drunk driving PSA's. Or get the memo about not picking fights with cops. As a result, he got to go directly to jail. I've watched a lot of episodes of Jail, and that is not someplace I ever want to visit.

Tasha is quite unhappy that her son has been arrested. Derwin doesn't look too surprised. Even Jason knows this is a Big Deal, and walks out on his date (although he leaves her with the check...

'The Game' Makes Triumphant Return

January 7th, 2011 2:46pm EST
The Game
It is my pleasure to report that The Game is back and it's as if the show never left.

There's a new look for the characters, and a little thing called a two-year time jump that we were told about in December, but excepting those two things, this is the show fans loved and fought for. I had a chance to take in the season four premiere (entitled "Parachutes...Beach Chairs") at a sneak preview screening in Los Angeles Thursday night, and I'll say that I cheered, I laughed and yes, I even got choked up a little.

Here's the dish: since it's been some time, there have been some pretty ser...

Tonight's TV Highlights: 'Everybody Hates Chris,' 'All of Us,' 'Girlfriends' & 'The Game'

October 1st, 2006 8:00am EDT
Whoopi Goldberg guest stars on Everybody Hates Chris
In Everybody Hates Chris (7 p.m. CW), Rochelle decides to host a neighborhood watch meeting after Julius' truck is stolen, but her good intentions quickly turn competitive when her new neighbor, Louise (guest star Whoopi Goldberg), thinks she'd make a better block captain than Rochelle.

Meanwhile, Chris sets out to break his streak of bad luck with the ladies by asking out a new girl in the neighborhood, Yvette (guest star Cherelle Noyd). In sharp contrast to his older brother, Drew volunteers to be a crossing guard and can't keep the girls away, causing a major traffic problem.
