Plus, Usher's ex Tameka Raymond blames him for his son's near-fatal drowning -- and now she wants more custody of the kids ...  but we know something that could help him fend her off.

And, If you think the person who robbed James Gandolfini after his died is heartless -- listen to our staff pick the scraps off of Harvey.

Well Harvey Dancing with the Stars would need to have a 'black' dancer to make that work. They haven't had 1 that I recall in all of the years it's been on the air.

Wow ...    

As Karen pointed out, DWTS does not have a pro black male dancer - good idea, but it won't work.

For the HATE mail segment...I hate when you disclose medical information about people, like Amanda Bynes and Paris Jackson. The public might want to know, but it really isn't any of our business. Let them get treatment out of the public eye. If however, it really is news - like a court hearing - then by all means, report away.
