Will the next “Bachelor” be an African American? ABC has yet to confirm that it has indeed selected Lamar Hurd, a Portland based sportscaster as it’s next bachelor on it’s hit TV series, “The Bachelor”. Lamar was apparently not seeking the coveted title, yet his assistant submitted an application for him. The fate of Hurd and all of the other Bachelor wannabes rests with the shows producers. Hurd would be a risk. Its unclear how the shows audience will respond to having an African American love interest. Some speculate that it could drive the shows remaining viewers away. Others suggest that this is just the shot in the arm that the Bachelor needs. They suggest that the show has become stilted, scripted, predictable and dull. It seems odd that America is ready for an African American President, but we question the nation’s readiness for a black “Bachelor”. This could simply be another example of how the nation evolves much faster then its most powerful brokers. Is America Ready For A Black Bachelor? I think we can safely assure ABC that we are. There is no need to hem, haw and second guess. America will be just fine. ABC should base it’s decision solely on Mr. Hurd’s qualifications. Is he rich (as the Bachelor must be). Is he a compelling character for television? Is he better for the role, then the other applicants? If the answer is yes (ABC) Cast Him. If he isn’t well then, maybe next season!

KANYE WEST’S: “Ode” To Kim KardashianNews
Worthy Magazine, reported that rumors were circulating about a possible romance brueing between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Well, they are no longer rumors! West is known for therapeutically emoting in song, as he has on numerous tracks. But the lyrics from his latest song, THERAFLU are unusually clear in their meaning. In what can only be described as an attempt to kill two birds with one stone, Kanye addresses the loss of Amber Rose to upstart rapper-Wiz Khalifa and his feelings for the reality vixen Kim Kardashian. In response to claims that Kanye might have beef with Wiz, West states bluntly;
“AND THE WHOLE INDUSTRY WANT TO F*** YOUR OLD CHICK, ONLY N**** I GOT RESPECT FOR IS WIZ
AND I ADMIT I FELL IN LOVE WITH KIM, ROUND THE SAME TIME SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH HIM WELL THATS COOL, BABYGIRL DO YOUR THING; LUCKY I AINT HAD JAY DROP HIM FROM THE TEAM”
Ladies and Gentlemen, Kaye West-In his own words!
For non-sports fans, Chris Humphries, Kim K’s ex plays for the New Jersey Nets, which is partially owned by JAY-Z. That effectively makes Jay-Z, Chris’s boss, hence the phrase “Lucky I aint had Jay Drop Him From The Team”. Kim and Kanye were recently seen out at the Hunger Games together and Kim was later seen leaving Kanye’s love shack that night. As we reported Kanye recently flew the reality star out to his fashion show. Rumors have persisted that the two were flirting with the idea of dating. West’s new “Ode” to Kim confirms his feelings on the matter, but a mystery remains concerning how Kim feels about the mega-producer. Kanye has confirmed in deed, gifts and now song how he feels about Kardashian but she has yet to acquiesce or definitively rebuff his affection. In fact, Kardashian recently confessed to having a very liberal definition of the term Soul-Mate, when she expressed her belief that the soul needs different people at different phases in life. While other publications are pronouncing the duo an official item, we are still skeptical. It’s clear that if it were up to Kanye they would be an item. In fact we are pretty sure that Kanye has begun sketching out his designs for Kim’s next wedding gown (and a matching tux for himself). But we are wondering if Kim’s Soul Has any real need or desire, for Kanye West! It seems like she is the tentative partner in this courtship.
Worthy Readers, Do you think that Kim shares Kanye’s feelings? And if not, why isn’t she interested?
