Sinbad on Marrying the Same Woman Twice (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Apr 14th 2011 5:35PM
Sinbad on 'The Wendy Williams Show'Sinbad talked about being married to the same woman twice today on 'The Wendy Williams Show' (weekdays, syndicated). It's a topic still fresh for him, and new show, 'Sinbad: It's Just Family,' has him living in the same house with his two kids and wife Meredith for the first time in years. Sinbad talked about how he met Mrs. Sinbad by trying to look smart.

Sinbad was in the Air Force when Meredith was in college, and he said he carried around an empty book bag as a bit of a disguise to blend in. "I saw her go in a bookstore," he said, "and I saw them legs, so I chased her in the bookstore." They were originally married in 1985, divorced in 1992, then remarried in 2002.

Both were wearing wedding rings, though not the originals. The first ring, Sinbad explained, had been borrowed. Which was probably not the best strategy for longevity.

Sinbad Avises Royce on 'It's Just Family'In the season premiere of 'Sinbad: It's Just Family' (Tue., 10PM ET on WE), the standup comic joins his former ex-wife (they remarried eight years ago) and two adult children to live under the same roof for the first time in years.

His son Royce needs some dating advice. Sinbad launches in: "Sometimes you need some crazy women in your life to know a good woman." He says men have a different perspective on relationships.

Guys think, "She's a serial killer but she didn't try to kill me, so I'm gonna keep dating her ... Say she stab me but I'm still alive -- there's still hope in that relationship, if she's fine," Sinbad advises.

"So you're saying give her a chance?" Royce asks. He replies, "Let one of your boys call her first -- see if he die." Huh? Well, Royce seems to see his point. "This is bonding ... This is why I like being back home."

My Strange AddictionIt appears the car-crash fascination of watching people eat couch cushions and lightbulbs has weighed out over the ick factor.

The show "tells the compelling stories of people who are battling obsessive behaviors on the verge of taking over their lives," according to TLC. Subjects who have been profiled in the first season range from an obsessive scab-picker to a woman addicted to eating toilet paper.

The season finale of 'My Strange Addiction' airs Wednesday, Feb. 16, at 9PM ET, and will follow a woman addicted to laxatives and another addicted to "eating pottery and cigarette ashes."

"He has put the show behind him and moved on," said a source of the actor, who played Lex Luthor for seven seasons. There's still three episodes left to shoot, so he still has a little bit of time to change his mind. [EW]

Donald Trump to Sinbad: 'You're Fired!' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 22nd 2010 6:23AM
Celebrity Apprentice, Sinbad FiredThe firings have been tough so far on 'The Celebrity Apprentice' (Sun., 10PM ET on NBC), because most of the team members have been stepping up to their tasks.

But last night's firing seemed on target. The guys lost the Kodak challenge, and team leader Sinbad seemed a bit scattered when trying to manage the team – especially Bret Michaels, who kept trying to get an assignment, to no avail.

What do you think? Did the right person get fired?
