    First Lady going to Spelman

    First Lady Michelle Obama will be speaking to the women of Spelman College for the school’s 2011 commencement.

    The president and Michelle are very HBCU-friendly when it comes to graduations. Last year, Barack spoke to students at Hampton University. This year, Hampton grads will be hearing from Bill Cosby.

    Michelle won’t be the only celebrity at the Spelman graduation. Sisters Debbie Allen and Phylicia Rashad will be attending and receiving honorary degrees. Both Debbie and Phylicia are Howard University grads.


    Dionne Warwick fired!

    Dionne Warwick became the latest celebrity to hear the words, “You’re fired,” from mogul Donald Trump.

    The 70-year-old contestant was called out by co-star NeNe Leakes who didn’t like that Dionne left the rest of her team members and went home to sleep.

    In previous episodes, other team members took issue with Dionne’s apparent attitude, complaining about how she interacted with others.

    In the end, Donald didn’t have much of a decision to make, since Dionne pretty much told him to put her out of her misery.

    Watch it.
