    Beyoncé and her mom Tina Knowles brought the serengeti to Selfrifridges for London Fashion week.

    Bey and Tina debuted the new House of Deréon at the London Department Store over the weekend. The singer revealed that the designs have a root in her music.

    "My mother designed a lof of the wardrobe for Destiny’s Child. I know our fans used to ask, ‘Where can we get those clothes?’" Bey said. "Eventually, it was something that was natural for us to collaborate, and it’s been such a great journey."

    Sad state for ‘Georgia’

    Raven Symoné’s ABC Family sitcom, “State of Georgia,” will not be picked up for a second season.

    While the network picked up two half-hour comedies, it decided the quirky sitcom about two 20-something BFFs trying to succeed in New York, wouldn’t be apart of the 2012 lineup, according to Deadline.com.

    Loretta Devine also starred on the show as Georgia’s eccentric aunt.

    Raven hasn’t publicly commented on the news yet, but her Twitter fans aren’t happy.

    “I can’t believe that @ABCFamily canceled the great comedy show ‘State of Georgia’ by @MissRavenSymone. This is sad news!” tweeted one fan.

    Harpo gets new sign

    The sign outside of Harpo Studios in Chicago once indicated it as the home of the “Oprah Winfrey Show.” Now, that space will be where Rosie O’Donnell hosts her new primetime show.

    “It feels like a tremendous honor,” Rosie told “Extra.” The facility isn’t all Rosie inherited. She’ll also have half of Oprah’s old staff supporting her.

    Although Rosie and Oprah are friends and colleagues, Rosie admitted she does not feel equal to the media icon. “I feel very awed in her presence,” Rosie revealed.

    The new show premieres October 10 on OWN.

    Oprah talks more about her show with Shaun Robinson of “Access Hollywood.” Watch.
