— Gabrielle Union‘s Being Mary Jane pilot scored huge for BET last nigh. The series, which officially premieres in 2014, is a drama about a successful anchorwoman who’s struggling with love, contemplating motherhood and dealing with her family.
— Meanwhile, CBS sent out a statement to Buzzfeed about the racist, homophobic and sexist comments:
“Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. We certainly find the statements made by several of the Houseguests on the live Internet feed to be offensive. Any views or opinions expressed in person commentary by a Houseguest appearing on Big Brother, either on any live feed from the House or during the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.”
Sure, CBS…why not actually air the offensive stuff so that non-Internet viewers can see just how ugly some of these contestants are?
