Damon Wayans Blasts Emmy Awards: “A Celebration of Whiteness”

Sunday night’s Emmy Awards have been criticized for its lack of diversity by TV fans and celebrities alike, but no one had harsher words for the telecast than Damon Wayans. The actor and comedian fired off a series of tweets during the awards show, which he called a “celebration of whiteness.”

“Has anyone Black won any gold tonight?’” he started off by asking, later adding, “it’s a damn shame there are more Black people in the White House than there is in the entire prime time TV line up in network and cable television!”

He continued his live-tweeting rant with, “this is America and we all contribute to it and that is not reflected in the Emmys.”

He saved his most damning comment for the end of the telecast, after both Don Cheadle and Kerry Washington lost out on awards. “The networks are confusing Americans that people other than whites don’t exist or matter.”

Indeed, this was the second year in a row without a single Black winner for any acting award, despite a number of actors of color headlining popular shows. Washington was believed to be the frontrunner for the Best Actress in a Drama Series award — she would have been the first Black woman in history to win — but lost to Homeland’s Claire Danes, who took home the prize for the second year in a row.

Dennis Rodman to Spend 52nd Birthday at Strip Club

North Korea isn’t the only place where Dennis Rodman gets the A-list treatment. New York strip club Cheetah’s is helping the basketball player-turned-diplomat ring in his 52nd birthday by throwing him a wild party. According to Page Six, the bash is scheduled for May 20 and owners of the club are planning a giant cake served by topless dancers and handing out lace thongs that read “Make Love Not War.”

But that’s not the real gift from Cheetah’s to Rodman: the club will name its infamous V.I.P. room after the birthday boy. The exclusive quarters were previously named after Charlie Sheen, but the Anger Management star threatened to sue the club for millions, alleging that the venue would hurt his reputation.

Rodman, however, doesn’t seem too concerned about that problem.

Dennis Rodman Determined to Return to North Korea, Broker Peace Deal

Dennis Rodman is taking his role of basketball diplomat very, very seriously.

TMZ reports the NBA Hall of Famer, who sent Washington into fits of giggles when he returned from North Korea with a message from dictator Kim Jong-Un for President Barack Obama (“Call him. Just call him,”), says he plans to return to the rogue nation ASAP to broker a lasting peace deal between the “Axis of Evil” country and the United States.

The Worm did learn a lesson from the ridicule and scorn he faced upon his homecoming, and vowed to apologize for calling Kim’s father, the notorious Kim Jong-Il, a “great leader,” admitting he wasn’t aware of the deceased head of state’s human rights violations.

In related news, North Korea is building more prison camps and illegally testing nuclear warheads (with an aim for a range that would reach Madison Square Garden) as we speak. Watcha gonna do about that, Rodman?

She may have looked fabulous throughout her pregnancy, but Amber Rose is starting to face the realities of motherhood.

The model and singer, who gave birth to baby Sebastian “The Bash” Taylor Thomaz on February 22, has been having a difficult time adjusting to breastfeeding. “It kinda hurts,” the new mom confessed via Twitter. “But the bonding with my baby is unbelievable. So worth it.”

Rose, who rocked her bump on many a red carpet with fiance Wiz Khalifa, says Bash resembles both his famous parents. “He’s the perfect mixture between me and Wiz,” she reveals. “He has Wiz’s Lips and my round head. LOL.” She adds, “we can’t stop staring at Sebastian. He’s beautiful!”

Even new dad Wiz can’t keep himself from gushing about his baby boy. “Bash is so awesome,” Khalifa tweeted the day after the birth. “He makes the coolest faces.” He later said, “My son wakes right up and gives me kisses on the nose and hardly cries.”

Though we have yet to get a glimpse of little Bash, we’re loving the day-to-day updates from Amber and Wiz about the pleasure and pains of parenthood.

Tia Mowry: “Hilary Duff is My Role Model”

Tia Mowry is finding inspiration in unexpected places when it comes to shedding her baby weight.

The sexy actress, who gave birth to son Cree Hardict two years ago, opens up to Us Weekly about the difficulties she faced getting her body back, and which celeb mom she looks up to.

“Hilary Duff!” says Mowry, shouting out her fellow child star and new mom. Duff has famously struggled with her post-baby pounds and is vocal about the pressures put on women in Hollywood. She is one of the rare stars to take a slow-and-steady approach to weight loss.

“I remember when I had my baby. I was looking at everybody like ‘Damn, how are they on the beach after two months in a bikini? What the hell are they doing?’” the 34-year-old actress says. “I went to my OB because I thought something was wrong with me, because that’s all I would see! And she said, ‘No, honey, that’s fine.’”

She adds, “I think if you ask any pregnant mom, they’re like ‘I want my body back,’ but it takes time.”

“There’s a lot of pressure, especially when you see people like Claire Danes and Megan Fox,” adds twin sister Tamera Mowry, who also recently gave birth to her first child, baby Aden.

She adds, “at first you’re shocked. You’re like, ‘My body’s completely different.’ Your boobs are in your face, you have stretch marks, you have curves that you never had before.” Luckily, Tamera’s man doesn’t mind a little bootyliciousness. “My husband said, ‘Happy girls are pretty girls,’ and he keeps telling me that. Enjoy the phase that you’re in. I’m enjoying it!”

We think both Mowry sisters look better than ever. And besides, no matter what’s going on below the neck, no skinny actress can compete with those killer smiles!

President Obama and Tiger Woods: Golf Buddies

President Barack Obama and Tiger Woods met up in Florida this week to swing their golf clubs for charity at the Accenture Match Play tournament in Palm City. Obama paid due respect to the controversial pro-golfer, telling local news channel ABC7, “He plays a different game than I do. He’s on another planet.”

“He knew that I wasn’t a big threat to his world ranking, and I knew that I better keep my day job,” the President added with a laugh. Woods returned the compliments, saying, “playing with Mr. President was pretty cool. He’s just a wonderful person to be around. We won.”

We doubt we’ll be seeing the Obamas double dating with Woods and his latest squeeze any time soon, but this unlikely friendship is innocent enough.

Alicia Keys: Jay-Z Didn’t Like It When My Son Kissed Blue Ivy

Jay-Z is already an overprotective daddy when it comes to his one and only Blue Ivy Carter, according to pal Alicia Keys.

The “Girl on Fire” singer stopped by the Wendy Williams Show this week to talk about her upcoming tour, and her son Egypt’s crush on little Blue. Keys reveals that Egypt, 2, tried to kiss one-year-old Blue during a recent playdate. “I don’t think Jay liked it very much. He told my husband, ‘Um, watch your son.’”

The thought of Egypt laying a wet one on Blue Ivy is just too much cuteness to bear, but the love doesn’t stop with the little ones. After the world aww-ed over a clip of Beyoncé and Jay-Z singing Coldplay’s “Yellow” to each other, Keys revealed a sentimental moment of her own.

When asked what was the best present she ever got from her hubby Swizz Beatz, she said, “this might sound strange but I think the favorite gift he ever got me [was] he got a tattoo of me on his arm. Of my face. He hid it. It’s so beautiful. He mixed it with some of his favorite artists…It’s so pretty.”

Can these people get any more cute/beautiful/romantic/perfect?

O.J. Simpson Throws Super Bowl Party…in Prison

Can you serve nachos and wings in prison?

O.J. Simpson came close when he hosted…wait for it…a Super Bowl party in his 80 ft. cell at Lovelock Correctional Center, Nevada, where he’s serving a 33-year term for kidnapping and armed robbery.

The Juice, who actually has a television in his cell, according to the New York Post, threw a bash in honor of football’s biggest day for his fellow inmates. “If you have the money, you can buy a TV at the inmate store and put it in your cell,” Simpson’s friend Norman Pardo says. Pardo adds that while he may be vilified on the outside, Simpson is actually one of the most popular inmates at Lovelock. “He’s like the Godfather of the prison now,” Pardo says.

Pardo, interestingly, is the guy who was responsible for trying (and failing) to rehab O.J.’s image after his shocking acquittal for double homicide left him to be one of the most hated men on the planet. Maybe now he should focus on getting his client an endorsement deal for orange jumpsuits?

Not content with pricey jewelry, designer vacations or luxury cars, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West decided to drop some big money on their latest shopping spree.

The expecting parents recently splashed out $11 million for a pile of bricks in Bel-Air, but that’s not enough for a family of three. TMZ reports the couple have their site set on three additional properties in Miami, Paris and New York.

We know Kim and Kourtney (and their DASH franchise) have already taken Miami and New York, so does this mean Paris is next?

Mariah Carey sure knows how to turn lemons to lemonade…or a blizzard into a winter wonderland.

The American Idol judge took advantage of winter storm Nemo, which pelted the East Coast with several inches of white snow, by throwing a “Re-Christmas” party at her New York City penthouse. The bash, complete with a roaring fire, Christmas tree and candy canes, was capped by Carey singing her rendition of “O Come All Ye Faithful” for her guests.

“It’s truly quite fabulous and festive,” the diva said in the video to her fans. “I wish you could all be here.”

Cocoa and carols with Mimi? We wish so, too.
