Fighting Cancer: Former Moesha star Yvette Wilson, known for her role as Andell Wilkerson, is fighting cancer for the second time, says blogger Carlton Jordan. Fans and supporters of the comedian can help her fight the illness
through the “CANCER SUCKS” fund. Money from donations will go toward medical expenses not covered by Wilson’s insurance. This isn’t her first battle against a serious health- related issue. The comedian, who also appeared in films like “House Party 2,” “House Party 3” and “Friday,” also experienced kidney failure, kidney transplants, and cervical cancer. Supporters may find out more or to contribute to the cause, visit www.giveforward.com/supportyvettewilson.
Back on the Scene: Bobby Brown is returning to the music scene with his first solo album in 14 years, “The Masterpiece.” His first single is “Don’t Let Me Die,” which was written years ago. Other songs like “Damaged” and “Get Out The Way” are sure to remind fans of his originality and why they fell in love with him. “I simply wanted to create a body of work that will take listeners on a musical journey; the style of music that will allow people to get in touch with their highs and lows and their joys and pain of living through song. At the same time, I am hoping to bridge the gap between good old R&B and R&B of today.”
Looking For Love: Fox is helping celebrities find love with its new reality show, “The Choice.” Former supermodel Tyson Beckford, comedian Finesse Mitchell, NFL player Ndamukong Suh and rapper/actor Romeo are among the stars who have signed up to find love on the series, which is pretty much the same format as “The Voice,” only contestants compete with their personalities to join teams, not their singing voices. Filmed in front of a live audience, each episode begins with four of the world’s most eligible bachelors sitting in rotating chairs, turning their backs on love and unable to see the attractive singles looking for a date with fame.
In this initial “Blind Round,” each celebrity can only use his suitors’ voices – as they share information about their life, passions, turn-ons and turn-offs – to help them make The Choice. When the celebrity bachelor likes what he hears, he pulls his “love handle,” spinning his chair around to bring him face-to-face with his potential mate. If more than one celebrity pulls the handle, they must battle it out for her affection. The new show is set to debut on Fox on Thursday, June 7, at 9 p.m.
Other participating celebrities include reality star Rob Kardashian, actress Carmen Electra, singer Joe Jonas, Playboy playmate Hope Dworaczyk, radio personality Mike Catherwood, actor Dean Cain, skiing legend and former NFL star Jeremy Bloom, chef Rocco DiSpirito, NFL star Rob Gronkowski, “American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks, Olympic gold medalists Steven Lopez and Seth Wescott, Dr. Robert Nettles, “Jersey Shore” stars Pauly D and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, “Suburgatory” actor Parker Young and London-born starlet Sophie Monk.
