Terrell Owens

Terrell Owens

Controversial Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens is the newest addition to VH1’s “celebreality” lineup with an upcoming show that follows his offseason activities.

The NFL star, known just as much for his off-the-field rants as for his athletic talent, will have his off-season life documented for a series to debut in July, reports AFP. His best friends and publicists, Monique Jackson and Kita Williams, will also be featured on the program.

“We are thrilled to bring such a great athlete, who is one of the biggest names and personalities in all the world of sports, to VH1 for a surprising high octane look inside his superstar life off the field,” VH1 executive vice president Jeff Olde said Monday in a statement.

There will be plenty of drama for the show, as most of the offseason attention has been about whether T.O., who is due a $3.1 million roster bonus in June, will return to the Cowboys following their inability to make the playoffs this year.

There have been rumors that Owens was a disruptive force and had blowups late in the season with teammate Jason Witten and offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.


"Don't Look!"

Drum Major John Coleman couldn’t resist acknowledging President Obama while leading the Cleveland Firefighter’s Memorial Pipes & Drums past his inaugural viewing stand last week. And for that, he was promptly suspended from the band for six months. “We had gone over and over time and again with everyone in the band that this was a military parade. Protocol and proper decorum had to be followed at all times,” bandleader Pipe Major Mike Engle told the Cleveland Plain Dealer, explaining the reasons for Coleman’s punishment. “Unfortunately, John chose to ignore that.” CNN’s cameras caught Coleman giving the new president a quick nod, a fleeting wave and what looked like a wink — all while keeping stride. Coleman argued that he didn’t do anything grossly over-the-top. “I looked over, and he smiled and waved. I was just acknowledging the president, who was acknowledging our band,” said Coleman. However, Engle said other pipe bands complained about Coleman’s gesture, and griped that even sneaking a peek at the president was out of bounds. “He has to abide by the rules,” Engle said. “It had to be done.”


The Inauguration Hat

The Inauguration Hat

The designer behind Aretha Franklin’s hat worn during the inauguration has announced he will create a less expensive line, inspired by the original, to debut next month. While the Queen of Soul’s hat with a Swarovski rhinestone-rimmed bow was a customized version, designer Luke Song of Detroit’s Mr. Song Millinery will meet demand by producing a collection of 12 hats in a variety of colors and bow sizes, priced from $150-$220. The Aretha-inspired collection will be shown during February’s Women’s Wear in Nevada trade show in Las Vegas. The line will be named after the singer herself. In the meantime, Song’s $179 versions of Franklin’s hat are currently flying off the shelves at his store, he tells the Los Angeles Times. The company sells its hats in over 500 U.S. stores.




Harlem’s Apollo Theater will celebrate the 75th anniversary of its “Amateur Night” segment with a show tonight featuring rapper Ron Browz. The first 75 tickets will cost $7.50, according to the Associated Press.
The world-famous theater, built in 1914 in the heart of Harlem, was originally called Hurtig and Seamon’s New Burlesque Theatre. Blacks were forbidden to attend the shows at the time. In 1934, Ralph Cooper Sr. launched a live version of his radio show, “Amateur Nite Hour” at the Apollo. Ella Fitzgerald was among the first winners of the show, which allows young performers to test their talent, with a tough live audience booing bad acts off the stage.
