CALVIN'S GOT A JOB: MICHAEL EALY STARS IN THE "GOOD WIFE" & AUBREY O'DAY LANDS REALITY SHOW

Posted by: Roxxanne Roxxanne


According to Entertainment Weekly, actor Michael Ealy will be joining Julianne Margulies and the rest of the cast of the CBS hit "Good Wife" this upcoming fall.

Ealy will star as Derrick Bond, the head of a Washington, DC based firm that is merging with the declining Lockhart & Gardner firm. Bond is described as,
“casual, soft-spoken attorney whose egalitarian beliefs seem at odds with Will and Diane’s self-serving practices. However, under his pleasant and unassuming exterior, he has a steel-trap mind and can outmaneuver his most cunning adversaries and/or associates. Deeply impressed with Alicia’s quiet competence, he becomes her newest mentor.”
In related news, Ealy will also be co-starring alongside actors Zoe Saldana, Idris Elba, Matt Dillion, Paul Walker, rapper T.I. and R&B singer Chris Brown in the moivie "Takers," which is scheduled to hit theatres on August 27.

Michael Ealy is such a cutie pie and a pretty decent actor too, but I think what most attracts me to him is the fact that he's able to keep a steady paycheck!

Check out info on Aubrey's reality show after the break!





According to The Hollywood Reporter, Platinum recording artist Aubrey O'Day of "Danity Kane" fame, is set to star in her very own reality show on Oxygen entitled the "Aubrey O'Day Project." 

This is not O'Day's first foray into reality television. She was first introduced to viewers on MTV's "Making the Band" season 3, which chronicled the lives of her and her bandmates struggle to make Sean "P. Diddy" Combs' band and put together an album.

The show will follow O'Day's attempt to make a comeback in the music industry. Oxygen exec Amy Introcaso-Davis says, 
"Young women have watched the ups and downs of Aubrey through the years, and they continue to cheer her on.” "We're excited to deliver her story as she battles the issues that resonate with our audience, from self-doubt and body image to an intense desire for success and redemption.”

Well good for her! Aubrey started out as one of my favorites (Andrea too!) when Making the Band first premiered, but as the show progressed she began to make harlot-type moves and started doin' da most, and it turned me off from being a fan of hers.


Although I constantly gave Aubrey's antics on the show the side-eye, I can't deny that she made the show interesting. Glad to see she didn't let Diddy stop her, cause Lord knows he tried to take you out the game like the Feds did Rayful!
