Like her You’re Cut Off! counterparts Erica and Jessica, Pam has taken to YouTube to respond to the show. Her most recent commentary concerns last week’s episode (regarding inner beauty). “I absolutely condone natural beauty,” Pam assures us, thank god! On her taking a stand and blowing up at Jessica, she says, “I actually did it for all of you, including myself, of course.” Considerate, right? She talks about her dearly departed costar, Chrissy (“I don’t think she saw the bigger picture”) and says no one’s heard from Chrissy since she left the house (I’m sure everyone is still mourning the communication loss). And speaking of the bigger picture, how’s this for a snapshot: “[We are] bsolutely not acting, and I know it seems ridiculous…but there are girls that actually act like this!” Thank heaven for them!
Pam also would like you to know that she is celebrating her birthday in Atlantic City at Club Mixx on Saturday, July 17. You can read more about that at her website, Pamelicious in the 212.
Since even before Day 1, the issue of race has factored heavily into discourse regarding Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch. To hear many tell it, Chad Ochocinco is a race traitor who couldn’t be bothered to host a racially diverse cast on his dating show (black women are in the minority of the 17 women he picked for his show). Essence.com cut right to the chase and asked him about the brewing controversy. Here’s part of Chad’s response:
“I deal with all types of women. My mind set is that I think outside the box. I’m all over the place and I want to experience everything. There’s nothing wrong with [Black women] at all. If I did it the way they wanted though, there still would have been something to fuss about. It’s a lose-lose for me because no matter how I do it, there’s going to be an argument. I did Wendy Williams yesterday and I said for those who are offended about it, I apologize. But if you ever run into me, you’d date me…I’ve never heard other races complaining about their men dating outside of their race besides Black people. I hate that we continue to pull that race card.”
“Pulling the race card” isn’t exactly the same thing as forming a dialogue when one sees fit, but OK! The important thing is that we’re talking about this. We’re all trying to get through this reality show together.

There’s a new weight-loss show coming to VH1 Monday, August 2 at 9/8c with a very 51 Mindsian twist: the $100,000 grand prize will be pooled from the contestants’ bank accounts. More on Money Hungry in the mini-press release below…
For the average individual the desire to lose weight is not enough motivation to make it happen. But what if the motivation to stay trim was $10,000 of your very own hard earned cash? That’s exactly what VH1’s new series Money Hungry will test, as 12 pairs of contestants will compete against each other to see which team can resist temptation and drop the most weight. Hosted by Dan Cortese, each team on Money Hungry will have to put up an entry fee of $10,000 of their own money to begin the competition. In a winner takes all fashion, the couple who sheds the most combined weight will walk away with $100,000. Each week the couples will face grueling challenges, supersized temptations and pressure filled weigh-ins on their quest to win the $100,000 grand prize.

Well, sort of. You see, we caught up with Terrell Owens, star of The T.O. Show, and Chad Ochocinco, star of Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch, in Harlem’s legendary Rucker Park the other night for a spirited game of basketball. Well, sort of; Chad didn’t actually end up playing. Instead, he coached his team from the sidelines. Still, that didn’t stop T.O. and Chad from wagering a small bet on the outcome. Specifically, the losing side would have to do 85 (get it?) push-ups at center court? Find out who won by watching the video above!
Today on the CBS Early Show, Bret Michaelsshot down a report from Star suggesting that he had finally popped the question to longtime on again/off again girlfriend Kristi Lynn Gibson over the July 4th weekend. However, Bret does admit that he gave her a ring, which he labels in the video above as both a “promise ring” and a “a friendship ring with benefits.” Exactly what that means is anyone’s guess, but hopefully we’ll get to see what he’s talking about when Bret Michaels: Life as I Know It returns in the fall.
