    Kim Zolciak bares baby bump; Kevin Hart heads to TV, Warner Bros. greenlights a Bodyguard remake and more!









    Kim bares her bump

    We may not know everything about Kim Zolciak of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” but we know she’s not shy, and she drives that point home on the new cover of Life & Style magazine.

    Kim shows off her third trimester baby bump in a revealing bikini.

    She shares the cover with fellow moms Kourtney Kardashian and Natalie Portman. Amazingly, Kim is the only one of the three who’s practically naked.

    Hey, if you got it, flaunt it — baby belly and all! 

    Kevin Hart on Fox

    Funnyman Kevin Hart may soon be returning to TV. He recently shot a pilot for a Fox sitcom, titled “Little in Common.”

    The series centers around three families whose common bond is their children’s little league team.

    Kevin’s character is Ty Burleson, a househusband who’s living out his own deferred dreams of athletic greatness by coaching baseball.

    Kevin, who’s best known for his stand-up and movie roles, is no stranger to TV. He’s had roles on “The Big House,” “Undeclared,” “Barbershop” and “All of Us.”


    Bodyguard remake on the way

    Warner Bros. studio has announced that it is remaking the 1992 blockbuster, Bodyguard, which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.

    It will be a tough act to follow for whoever takes on the leading roles. (Rumor has it that Rihanna is being considered for the part.) The original film grossed $411 million.

    There’s no word yet on whether “I Will Always Love You,” the song that helped bolster the film, will be re-recorded by the actress who will take on the leading role of Rachel Marron.


    President hosts Thurgood screening

    President Barack Obama hosted a screening of the HBO special Thurgood at his home.

    Al Sharpton, Don Cheadle and John Marshall, the son of Civil Rights activist and Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, were among those in attendance to watch the one-man play, starring Laurence Fishburne.

    “It’s so important, particularly during African-American History Month, that we remember those who worked tirelessly, who sacrificed so much to enable us to enjoy the freedoms and opportunities that we do today … and my father was one of those,” John said.

    The movie airs tonight at 9 EST on HBO.

    Watch the Obama and his White House guests gather for the screening.


    Meet the Rev. O

    Omarosa answered “the call” and is now a bona fide woman of God.

    The former love seeker on TV One’s “Ultimate Merger” was recently appointed the assistant pastor of a Los Angeles congregation after receiving her preacher’s license.

    In August, she told S2S, “I feel like God is calling me. He’s been calling me for two years and I can’t ignore it.”

    Omarosa rose to (B-list) stardom after appearing on the first season of Donald Trump’s “The Apprentice.” On that show, she was seen as the evil contestant that viewers loved to hate.

    Now, she’s all about spreading a message of love. Watch the video.
