Nick Cannon has apologized not once, not twice, but as many times as Mariah Carey has reachable octaves, and still, ViacomCBS is standing firm to their decision to fire him last month after he promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on his podcast, Cannon’s Class. Nick has been the host of Wild’N Out, the show he created in 2005, for 15 seasons. Nick fired back at ViacomCBS, saying he deserved an apology from them, for firing him without discussing where he was coming from, and he demanded they hand over the rights to his show. Well, ViacomCBS didn’t give Nick his show. And recently, rumors started popping up on the internet that Nick was planning to sue ViacomCBS for $1.5 billion for the rights to Wild’N Out. But Nick’s rep has come forward to kill that billion-dollar lawsuit rumor.
That dapper frog has such a worried look on its face, but don’t worry frog! Nick Cannon isn’t going anywhere. At least not anywhere as far as FOX is concerned. ViacomCBS is another story, as we already know. But Nick Cannon’s job hosting the televised fever-dream The Masked Singer is safe, regardless of how ViacomCBS responded to Nick’s anti-Semitic podcast comments.
Three years ago, Nick Cannon quit his job hosting America’s Got Talent, because he felt like NBCUniversal was censoring him. At that time, Nick released a stand-up special in which he joked that he couldn’t say what he really wanted to say, because – according to Nick – NBC didn’t want him to be too Black. Gabrielle Union is thinking, “Where is the joke though.” NBC reportedly wanted Nick to apologize for the joke, which he refused to do, and so he quit.
Nick has continued to speak without a filter, like when he said some collar-tugging shit about white people and the Jewish community during a recent episode of his podcast, Cannon’s Class. If Nick was expecting that his most recent employer, ViacomCBS, would negotiate like NBCUniversal did, well – he predicted wrong. Because ViacomCBS terminated Nick’s employment.
Hell hath no fury like a supermodel and former America’s Next Top Walmart Beauty Aisle Model judge scorned! Paulina Porizkova continues to work overtime at getting her hands on some of that money left behind by her estranged husband Ric Ocasek––who made it a point to deliberately leave her out of his will. And this time, she’s taking the guys-i’m-totally-fine-and-not-bitter tour on the road.
“Gayle, listen, I need you to take the heat off of Mama O by asking Lisa Leslie on CBS This Morning about the Kobe Bryant rape case. I’ll get you that high floor condo in… the…. CAAAAAY-MAAAAANS. Mama O, out!” is the voicemail that Oprah may or may not have left Gayle King before Gayle’s interview with WNBA star and friend of Kobe Bryant, Lisa Leslie. Because some are dragging Gayle King for doing her job as a journalist by asking questions, specifically a question about Kobe Bryant’s rape case. CBS tweeted a clip of that moment to promote the interview, and Gayle is trying to stop the dragging of her by dragging CBS for pulling some sensationalism shit.
The finale of Survivor airs tonight and it’s going to look a lot different from past seasons. In light of the unprecedented removal of a player, Hollywood agent Dan Spilo, from the game for inappropriate touching, CBS has made some changes to both how the finale will play out and with their procedures moving forward. E! News reports that those changes could affect other CBS reality shows like Big Brother and Love Island, which would probably leave those shows with a 30 second running time solely comprised of a lengthy disclaimer and the opening credits.
