CBS has announced that its affiliates will carry the new Queen Latifah daytime talk show.  The Queen Latifah Show launches this fall and it’s expected to be a hit.  Queen Latifah was already known as the Black Ellen, but now it will because they both have talk shows.

Rihanna is going out for her next album.  She’s releasing a diamond version of the CD that will sell for $250.  That’s right, $250 for a single CD.  So if you’re a Rihanna fan run to the store and pick it up on December 11th for $250.  Or you can just go to the barber shop for a week earlier and get it for $6 bucks.  It’s up to you.

A Pennsylvania woman was arrested and faces charges after she jumped into a raging creek during Hurricane Sandy in order to save the ducks.  A breath test on the woman showed her blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit for driving.  So ducks are the only bird this woman tried to save, because she damn sure didn’t save any Grey Goose.
