Queen Latifah Caught With Val, Or Close Enough for the Paparazzi, on 'Single Ladies' (VIDEO)

Queen Latifah, 'Single Ladies'Just when Val was hoping she could put this whole gay rumor with her old college roommate Sharon Love behind her on 'Single Ladies' (Mon., 9PM ET on VH1), the paparazzi showed up and ruin everything.

Of course, when Sharon -- guest star Queen Latifah -- started brushing wool off of Val's rear end, what did they expect to happen?

Sharon was actually hoping to push the gay angle as a career booster. She had her eye on the black, big-boned woman-sized hole in the daytime television landscape and declared that "gay is the new black."

But Val is trying to make things work with Jerry, which isn't made easier by that picture of her and Sharon on the cover of a tabloid magazine with the headline 'Sharon & Val Caught in the Act During a Sexy Shopping Spree!' We love how the details are completely made up.

Queen Latifah Guests on 'Single Ladies,' Drops a Bombshell Secret About Val (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 5th 2011 5:42AM
Queen Latifah, 'Single Ladies'College is a lot like Las Vegas for many people. What happened there, they'd really rather stay there. But, if secrets are going to come out, you'd probably rather it didn't happen via a news telecast. Unfortunately for Val on 'Single Ladies' (Mon., 9PM ET on VH1), that's exactly where her dirty laundry aired.

Apparently, Sharon Love -- played by series executive producer Queen Latifah -- and her on-air cohort didn't realize they were still on the air after she teased a story about women sleeping with one another, but not defining themselves as lesbians.

And, of course, the cameras kept rolling as she told him that she had in fact slept with a woman in her past, her college roommate Val. Cue Val walking into the room to meet the stunned expressions of Keisha and April.

Queen Latifah Has a 'No-Die' Clause in Her Movie Contracts (VIDEO)

by Harley W. Lond, posted Apr 12th 2010 5:09PM
Queen Latifah is a rarity in today's Hollywood: She has a no-die clause put in every one of her contracts. What does that mean? It means she can't be killed off in a movie. According to Latifah, who appeared on Monday's 'The Martha Stewart Show' (weekdays, syndicated), she got killed off so many times in the beginning of her career -- and did it so well -- that she was afraid that she would be typecast. And if she kept dying in her films -- well, that meant no sequels.

Johnny Depp, Sandra Bullock Top 2010 People's Choice Awards Winners

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jan 7th 2010 2:16AM
Sandra Bullock, People's Choice Awards 2010It was a low-key night for the 2010 People's Choice Awards, the 36th annual gala celebrating fan favorites in movies, TV and music. Nothing particularly amazing or outlandish happened, and most of the stars donned conventional gowns, including host Queen Latifah, who looks fabulous these days. She started the show off with a musical medley, including Susan Boyle's hit 'I Dreamed a Dream,' then launched into the presentations.

We didn't see all of the awards being presented, including Favorite Talk Show Host, won by Ellen DeGeneres. But, of course, she had a few words to say about it. "Oprah, I love you, and I'm sorry your show got canceled." Then she added something about winning eleven times, "one for each of Sandra Bullock's toes." Maybe that was a private joke between the two?

Human Beatbox Queen Latifah Rocks the Mic on 'Lopez Tonight' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Nov 12th 2009 1:18PM
In a clip from 'Lopez Tonight' that makes us wish we hadn't sold our old 'Fat Boys' CDs, Queen Latifah throws down on the mike and busts out with some good old-fashioned beatboxing.

If there's any doubt whether her foray into acting has dulled her skill at vocal percussion, this performance should lay that to rest.

Dancing with the Stars: Performance 3 Results

Tom DeLay and Cheryl Burke get a good joke from Tom Bergeron
(S09E07) With the return of Len Goodman, a thirteen-point difference separated all the contestants on Dancing with the Stars. Even with two bum feet, Tom DeLay managed to beat Michael Irwin's score. As the credits roll, I think the opening sequence needs to take a hint from Survivor and make edited versions where eliminated contestants are removed from the opening every week.

The big drama tonight was whether or not there would be a single elimination or a double. We get a recap of last night: kissing, Paula Abdul, and dancing. The judges made a very interesting choice for an encore.

American Idol: We have a winner!

American Idol - Season 8 Finale

At long last, the season 8 finale of American Idol has arrived! It's been fun watching all of the Idols grow in their musical prowess (that's a Paula word), especially Adam Lambert and Kris Allen, the final two performers who couldn't be more different, but are both awesome in their own way.

Ryan started things off by introducing the judges, along with a funny video clip for each of them -- Randy Jackson saying "For Me" throughout the season; Kara DioGuardi saying "sweetie" and "honey" to people who didn't make it past the audition process; Paula's round-up of colorful adjectives (vocal prowess, masterful and effortless, palette, etc.); and Simon's issues with hearing what people say (as in, he could probably use a hearing aid!).

Oscars 2009: What worked vs. what didn't

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 23rd 2009 12:02PM
It was the best of Oscar it was the worst of Oscar. It wasn't the best show I've ever seen, but was it the worst Oscars ever as one friend emailed me? I think there were features that worked and features that tanked. There could have been more star power -- where were Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Jim Carrey, Sandra Bullock, Christian Bale, Tyler Perry (he had the biggest box office opening last week!), etc.? Forget about stars from the '70s...

Anyway, I had predicted that the Oscars would stink. Well, I was wrong, or half-wrong. Separate from whether you agreed with the winners -- I did by and large -- or you didn't, what about the broadcast? I think if you had seen all the nominees (or at least the Best Picture noms), you probably had a rooting interest and were amused by most of the show. However, the other half was pretty bad. After the jump, what worked versus what did not.

Saturday Night Live: Anne Hathaway/The Killers - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Oct 5th 2008 2:02PM
Anne Hathaway(S34E04) This season so far has been more than a little iffy, but Anne Hathaway managed to make things slightly less painful. Even though the writing still wasn't quite spot-on, Hathaway's enthusiasm brought a light to the show that made even the most irritating sketches a bit more bearable. Honestly, I had my doubts about her hosting abilities, mainly because her good girl giddiness clashes heavily with my black-hearted bitchiness, but I didn't mind her. I'm sure she could even easily make the jump from "pretty good" to "absolutely spectacular," given the right material. Also, she managed to read the cue cards without looking like a complete idiot, which most other hosts have somehow turned into a massive ordeal lately. Mmm, literacy plus natural reading: a combination so deliciously rare, the writers don't even know what to do with it.

VP debate scores blockbuster ratings

Biden Palin Conventional wisdom says that vice presidents don't matter much when it comes time to vote, that people ultimately make their choice based on who's running for president. However, when it comes to debates, VEEPs are the main event.

The Nielsen numbers are in for last night's debate between Vice Presidential candidates Joe Biden and Sarah Palin and they're huge -- 69.9 million viewers watched the VEEP debate. That's a whopping 17.5 million more viewers than Barack Obama and John McCain drew for their first debate last Friday night.

Why were so many more people tuned in for Biden-Palin? There are a few reasons, starting with the curiosity about Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.

Can she talk? Leah Remini in talks for a talk show

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 14th 2008 2:19PM
Rach and LeahQueen Latifah couldn't make it work. Megan Mullally struck out, too. In fact, if you think about it, more stars fail in their attempts to become talk show hosts than succeed. For every Ellen DeGeneres and Tyra Banks, there's a Caroline Rhea and Magic Johnson.

So, will sitcom star Leah Remini go from the King of Queens to the queen of daytime talk? CBS -- home of King of Queens for a very successful run from 1998-2007 -- is developing a daytime show for Leah Remini that's being called something different than a typical talk show.

If you tune in to The Rachael Ray Show today, you might get an idea of what Leah could bring to daytime -- she's Rach's guest.

No live broadcast for the 34th People's Choice Awards

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 21st 2007 9:23AM

People's Choice AwardIn a somewhat unprecedented move, Reuters details a shift in format for the People's Choice Awards. The January 8th broadcast was to be the typical awards show fare, people make bad jokes, struggle to read teleprompters with bad jokes written on them, accept awards by making bad jokes all interspersed with snippets of bad jokes from a host.

This year, in response to the ongoing writers strike, Queen Latifah will be "hosting" a magazine-style show (think Entertainment Tonight). She will introduce pre-recorded segments and clips from nominees to be followed by pre-recorded "I'd like to thank my mom"s from the winners. With waivers being denied to awards shows and celebrities admitting reluctance to attend awards show in the wake of the strike, this move makes sense though I'm not sure it will make for good television. I think the excitement of seeing celebrities live and interacting is the appeal of an awards show and this will just feel like a long episode of one of those celebrity newsmagazine shows like ET.

Family Guy: Airport '07

by Brett Love, posted Mar 5th 2007 7:55AM
Quagmire - Family Guy(S05E12) Looking back on this one, as an admitted Stewie fan, I'm surprised that I liked it as much as I did. For the most part, my favorite Family Guy episodes are those where Stewie gets his own feature plot. He was relegated to Meg or Chris background status here, but the episode was still one of the best of the season.

Chalk a lot of that up to giving Quagmire a chance to shine. He's a great character, so it's nice to get to see him used a little more on occasion. If the experiment with Stewie and Brian's talk show, Up Late, goes well, I wouldn't mind seeing Quagmire get his own show. Maybe something along the lines of Midnight Q from "PTV." He did have the line of the night with his "...contents of your panties may have shifted..." bit after missing the flight.
