    Sherri Shepherd pleads the fifth

    On the most recent episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” Sherri Shepherd dished on her “The View” co-hosts.

    When asked whose opinion she cares about least, she answered that when it comes to political views, she’s not interested in hearing those of her BFF Elisabeth Hasselback, who was one of Sherri’s bridesmaids.

    As far as Barbara Walters, Sherri shared that the seasoned journalist never uses the restroom.

    “She will not go to the bathroom. She can hold it through Serbia, back to Russia, to a ’20/20′ special…she never goes to the bathroom,” Sherri said.

    How does Sherri feel about her friend and fellow “Watch What Happens Live” guest, Yvette Nicole Brown?  Watch.

    Brandy talks Blue Ivy

    Brandy recently shared her opinion about Jay-Z, Beyoncé and baby Blue Ivy. The mother of one isn’t throwing any shade in their direction. She has nothing but love for the family.

    “I love the name Blue Ivy. I think that is such a gorgeous name, and I think B is going to make such a wonderful mom, and I think Jay is gonna make a wonderful dad, and I just love their whole thing, and I really believe it. I believe that it’s real, and I love it,” she told True Exclusives.

    While she’s a fan of Beyoncé, she doesn’t like being compared to her, or any other artist for that matter.

    “When you put competition in the midst of what’s so unique and so different about every artist out there, it keeps you from appreciating everybody,” she said. “If you like Beyoncé, and Lady Gaga and Rihanna and not put them against each other, then you can enjoy all three. I have all of their albums. I love them all,” she said. “Let people be unique and y’all fans stop putting us against each other. It’s not even right.”

    Beyoncé mourns Etta James

    Beyoncé, who portrayed an Etta James in Cadillac Records, released a statement regarding the legendary R&B and jazz artist who passed away on Friday.

    “This is a huge loss. Etta James was one of the greatest vocalists of our time. I am so fortunate to have met such a queen," Beyoncé wrote on her blog. "Her musical contributions will last a lifetime. Playing Etta James taught me so much about myself, and singing her music inspired me to be a stronger artist. When she effortlessly opened her mouth, you could hear her pain and triumph. Her deeply emotional way of delivering a song told her story with no filter. She was fearless, and had guts. She will be missed."

    Although Etta took issue with Beyoncé being invited to perform “At Last” for the president and first lady on the evening of their inauguration, the two apparently buried the hatchet.

    Watch Beyoncé perform “At Last” below.

     Giants vs. Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI

    There’s going to be a rematch for the Super Bowl this year! The New York Giants and the New England Patriots will go head-to-head once again in Super Bowl XLVI.

    This is the second time that the teams will face off in the league championship. The first time, the Giants walked away with the win in 2008 after a touchdown pass from Eli Manning. This would be a chance at redemption for Tom Brady and the Patriots, who had had a perfect season up until that point.

    See who walks away with the win this time when the Giants and the Patriots hit the field on February 5 in Indianapolis.

    Take a look at their last Super Bowl matchup here!
