Around the Web: Ocho Cinco spread like butter, Howard Stern goes in on Gabby, Chris Brown begs & 'Housewives' get racial

Comments (33)


CAN YOU GUESS WHAT OCHO CINCO STANDS FOR?

If you thought Terrell Owens loved the limelight, get a load of that Chad "Ocho Cinco" Johnson. Besides posing nude on a mock up cover of ESPN magazine and supposedly jump-starting a line of extra large condoms, the Cincinnati Bengals star player is making sure he diversifies so he becomes the ultimate athlete turned entertainer. The Hershey bar-colored jock recently joined the cast of 'Dancing with the Stars,' and he's busy planning another television venture – his very-own VH1 show.

"People think they know Ocho Cinco. Well, they're really gonna know me now," he told the magazine. "We've already filmed a whole season of stuff. VH1. BET. MTV. Everyone wants it. VH1 is offering more money than the rest."

VH1 wins.

In the same vein as Ray J's 'For the Love of Ray J' and Flavor Flav's 'Flavor of Love,' Johnson's upcoming dating reality show, 'The Tournament' will follow the 32 year-old as he looks for his main squeeze. This summer, the father of four will choose 16 women from the four regions of the country to compete for his love and affection.

Cameras caught Ochocinco, as he is known (it means eight five in Spanish), last week jogging in a Los Angeles park wearing nothing but sneakers. The charismatic cat has said he is crushing hard for 'Modern Family' star Sofia Vergara. But until she reciprocates his feelings, or his other crush, 'Dancing' co-star Kate Gosselin, he's searching for Miss Right.

Johnson makes his debut on 'Dancing with the Stars' March 22 and his dating show will premiere in July 2010. [EURWEB]

SOME STERN WORDS
Legendary radio jock Howard Stern popped back into the mainstream zeitgeist this week. No one has heard much of the controversial radio personality since he moved to satellite radio a few years ago.

That changed this week when he gave his thoughts about the Academy Awards.

Never one to bite his tongue, Stern didn't mince words about Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe. Stern had lots to say about the 'Precious' star's weight. "She's enormous...she needs help," he taunted.

His longtime sidekick Robin Quivers chimed in on his rant about how Sidibe won't have a future in Hollywood, saying, "this girl is obese, you can't do that much when you are fat."

"She's the jolly, fat woman who's going off to eat some more chicken," Quivers noted.

He even had a few choice words about her 'Precious' co-star Mo'NIque's Academy Award acceptance speech – though he couldn't even seem to remember her name. "I thought the woman who won the Oscar -- what's her name?-- did a great job ... but I never heard such an angry speech. Major chip on her shoulder." he chided.

The best-selling 'Private Parts' author was also criticized by ABC NEWS for his comments, but he didn't care, adding, "everybody is rooting for Gabrielle Sibiday, but they are going overboard rooting for her because she's this big woman. We're the only ones that care about her."

DESPERATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPERATE MEASURES
Oh Chris Brown! The former chart-topping R&B singer's career has yet to bounce back since his controversial assault of ex-girlfriend Rihanna. Now, he is asking his fans to call into radio stations to get his new music played on the station. The Virginia native's said: "I ain't never really did this but right now I need all of my fans to call radio stations because they aren't playing my records."

"There's nothing else that I can do," he added. "I am doing everything that I need to do. It's all for yall."

Can't help but shake our heads at the 'Stomp the Yard' and 'This Christmas' star. He just needs to stay off the internet because he's starting to sound pretty pitiful. [Necole Bitchie]

LOOSE LIPS

Apparently Kim Zolciak is really 'Tardy To the Party.' The poor little rich gal is still using the N-word -- IN PUBLIC!!!.

In recent weeks, the loose-lipped rocker John Mayer and 'Twilight' Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattisson made headlines with racially insensitive remarks. The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star appeared on her cast-mate Kandi Burruss' weekly UStream show, 'Kandi Koated Nights' on March 10 and said the N-word in reference to a popular group. "Yeah, I remember listening to NWA back in the day, one of my favorite songs was the one where he talks about the girl p***y poppin. Ya'll know NWA, N****rs With Attitudes, it was 15 years ago, but we still love it," she said in reference to the groundbreaking West Coast gangsta rap group.

Burruss, the former Xscape frontwoman, pulled Zociak aside and out of the camera shot to discuss the first N-word reference. She tried to justify the mention by saying, "I know everyone was a little shocked by Kim saying the real word for N in N.W.A., but this is real TV, anyway it was crazy. We had a fun night and we hope to see you guys back."

Should Zolciak be forgiven?

Well, isn't everyone else? [HIP HOP WIRED]
