TV show "The Game" racks up HUGE 7.7 million viewers and rivals Jersey Shore ratings

I been a fan of "The Game" TV show since the very 1st episode on network TV... It was one of FEW TV shows left that i looked forward to watching. when it was cancelled... I was one of those "sad face" viewers who was confused about the cancellation and the excuse the Network gave about ratings.

I'm so happy to report to you about the success of the season debut on B.E.T. After being "left for dead" by network TV.. "The Game" has proven all the naysayers wrong! They said the show didn't have a audience. well... this weeks ratings tell a different story, "The Game" had a AMAZING 1st episode, and racked up BIG TIME in the ratings. They had 7.7 million viewers to be exact. To put this in perspective for you, The Jersey Shore show is the #1 show and they had 8.45 million viewers for their season debut, and Keeping Up With The Kardashians” had 4.8 million viewers for their season debut.

There isn't enough media attention about this... why? when the show was cancelled everyone reported about it. Let's spread the word and send a message to network TV! THERE IS A AUDIENCE FOR BLACK SITCOMS ON TELEVISION!

Golden-Voiced Ted Williams Entering Rehab, Says Dr. Phil.. admits he's still drinking

The happy ending may have to wait.

Ted Williams, the golden-voiced homeless man discovered last week, became an overnight sensation and scored a job offer to get him off the streets. But following a police-involved confrontation with his recently reunited daughter on Monday night in Los Angeles, Williams may be headed for rehab.

A rep for Dr. Phil McGraw, who has Williams on his show this week, tells PEOPLE the talk show host convinced Williams to get treatment for drug and alcohol abuse after a "lengthy one-on-one conversation."
"If Ted is ever going to get better, he's got to be honest with himself and admit he's addicted to drugs and alcohol,” says McGraw. "I've told him it's not going to be easy and it's going to take a lot of hard work. It might be a long journey for him, but this is a big step in the right direction."
This decision comes shortly after Williams, 53, admits on the syndicated Dr. Phil show in an episode airing Wednesday that he is still drinking.
"I did have an alcohol problem early ...," Williams has acknowledged in an interview on the Today show. "I was drinking like a fifth a day ... my life went to pits."
The troubled voiceover actor also has a rap sheet that includes theft, robbery, forgery and drug possession.

50 Cent faces possible investigation for (alleged) stock violation

50 Cent may be placed under investigation by the Security Exchange Commission (SEC) for encouraging over 3 million Twitter followers to invest money in a penny-stock company. via SOHH

Details on the violations 50 may have allegedly encountered landed online Wednesday (January 12) morning.

Rapper 50 Cent may have momentarily gotten $8.7 million richer after encouraging his Twitter followers to invest in a money-losing penny stock, but now the hip hopper may be in big trouble with the Security Exchange Commission. "There are very strict guidelines as to what a person can do in terms of possibly manipulating the value of a stock," financial expert and 60-Minute Money Workout author Ellie Kay tells FOX411. "I don't think it would be a huge surprise to anyone if 50 Cent were investigated for what he did." On the SEC's web site, a list for common violations that could lead the government agency to conduct an investigation include "manipulating the market prices of securities." (Fox News)

Securities laws are complicated, but promoting a stock in which you have an interest is a potential violation of securities laws, said Andrew Stoltmann, a Chicago securities lawyer. Even if you're saying something that you believe to be true, promoting shares without mentioning your personal interest in the company gets scrutinized under "pump and dump" rules. These rules are aimed at stopping insiders from saying: "Get in now" while they're quietly getting out. "The SEC loves nothing more than making a high-profile example out of somebody who is violating the rules. We don't need to look further than Martha Stewart to see that. If the department of Justice can get a clean shot at him, I'm sure they would love to take a swing," said Stoltmann. "If [50 Cent] has a managerial role, interlocking business relationships, or if he's on the board, the company could be dragged into a suit as well." (Money Watch)


Ted Williams (former homeless man) calls his daughter a Fat B****, violence errupts

I think fame is starting to get to Ted... He has offers from Oprah, Ellen, American Idol, NFL, Cleveland Cavaliers, Kraft Cheese and more... but a this point, i think Ted was happier when he was homeless on the streets...

He says the fame is too much too soon and it's overwhelming. The fight with his daughter was deeper than i thought. The fight started because his daughter was upset with him and wouldn't let Ted talk to her mother...

Ted told his daughter to "shut the F*** up" and when she answered "who you talkin to" Ted replied "you ya fat B****"

That's when things hit the fan... Ted's daughter spazzed out and got physical with him. He has scars on his face. Ted says his daughter also threatened to sell him out to the media. His Daughter says Ted still gets drunk and was drinking Grey Goose.

Ted tells us how over night fame for him is stressful...
"people who are in recovery we're very fragile. you jump out of the car.. there's a camera there.. roll down the window just to flip a ciggarette out the window and there's somebody who points at you "can i take a picture with you, can i take a picture with you" remember just a week ago i was holding a sign where people wouldn't give me the time of day"
Check out FULL interview with Ted & his daughter explaining what happened that night...


Intimate details about Jay Z & Beyonce's relationship revealed by long time friend Dream Hampton 

Jay-z and Beyonce are named “Music’s Most Powerful Couple” on the Cover of next month’s Ebony Magazine. Inside, the Super star couples married life is thoroughly examined and Written by longtime Jay-Z friend dream hampton, the duo's "Power Couple" feature is an introspective account of their work and at-home habits.journalist Dream Hampton, gives an intimate view into the lives of Hip Hop’s favorite couple.

Here’s an excerpt
“He is her best friend, someone who immediately and implicitly understands her life, not only as a star, but as a hard-working driven artist“

For all their might as solo power players, their relationship is remarkably free of drama. They sit around in their pajamas and watch cable and snuggle, which may, after all, be the ultimate fantasy. When they climb off the couch from beneath their favorite cashmere throws or disembark from their yachts, they work as if James Brown were their boss. One of them is always touring, always in the studio, always somewhere making kinds of multimillion dollar-deals that keep them on the Forbes list.

Shortly after they’d become serious, when Jay was on summer tour, I was touched by the fact that they were committed to scheduling real time together, even if that meant Beyonce coming on the road, occasionally gracing the stage to perform one of their collabos. I wondered to myself if Jay would return the favor. Powerful women have no problem supporting their partners’ dreams so demonstratively. But that September, when it was her turn to head out on her first major international tour as a solo artist, Jay was backstage in her dressing room, playing cards with a robed Beyonce’, ready to return the backing and join her onstage if need arose. The very nature of such circumstances proves that they are, indeed, the true definition of a power couple.
