    COMEDY CENTRAL ANNOUNCES THE END OF 'KEY & PEELE': Comedy Central has announced that Key & Peele will be ending after the current season which premiered on July 8th. Co-creator and star Keegan-Michael Key said in a statement, "It was time for us to explore other things, together and apart. This is our final season -- and it's not because of Comedy Central, it's us. It was just time for us to explore other things, together and apart. I compare it to Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor. We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three years and then come back and do another movie. I'm thinking we could do that every three years -- take a year, go bang out a movie. That's the plan right now." The series will end in September.

  • HULK HOGAN THANKS FANS FOR SUPPORT AFTER N-WORD SCANDAL

    Hulk Hogan still has the support of his daughter, Brooke, and many of his fans following the leaked transcript of him using the N-word in part of his sex tape that was posted by Gawker back in 2012. The 61-year-old tweeted a thank you to the words of support he has gotten since last week's scandal which led to his dismissal from the WWE and the removal of all Hulk-related products from the online store.

    He wrote, "Thank u Maniacs 4 the love and support, it’s amazing how many people know who I really am and stuck by my side, I will always keep my head up. Because of the love and support u have shown me ,thank u from the bottom of my heart oh love HH"

    • Hulk, whose real name is Terry Bollea, was quoted as saying, "I don't know if Brooke was f***ing the black guy's son. I mean, I don't have double standards. I mean, I am a racist, to a point, f***ing n***ers. But then when it comes to nice people and sh*t, and whatever. I mean, I'd rather if she was going to f**k some n***er, I'd rather have her marry an 8-foot-tall n***er worth a hundred million dollars! Like a basketball player! I guess we're all a little racist. Fucking n***er."
    • He apologized in a statement to People saying, "Eight years ago I used offensive language during a conversation. It was unacceptable for me to have used that offensive language; there is no excuse for it; and I apologize for having done it. This is not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs."
    • Hulk's daughter wrote a poem defending her dad called "If You Knew My Father" which read, "If you knew the dad I knew, you'd know his tender heart. He'd never want to hurt his fans, or family from the start. If you knew my father, you would know how hard he fought...and the way it brought a smile to people light, medium and dark. We always fight a battle that people never see, and sometimes when you're hurting, you don't think logically. Human isn't perfect, and perfect is not he, but I can tell you one thing, it's just not what it seems. Cause If you knew the dad I knew, you'd know he raised me well. He taught me folks are so much more than shades could ever tell. And If you knew my father, you would know he's down to earth. He may have slammed the giant, but remembers life's true worth. If you knew my father, if you just walked in his shoes...then you would know that microscope that comes with yellow boots. If you knew my father, you would see your own in mine. And if he was your father, you could never find divide. Cause me -- I bet your father or someone that you love...Maybe regrets something they wish they'd never done. So if you know my father, remember he's a man, and you would crave relief if people judged everything you did. The lord says to forgive them, don't be the one to stone...so please remember his strong arms when you were all alone. The lives he's changed, the friends he's made, the people he's inspired...It makes me sad to see my dad defeated and so tired. If you knew my father, you would know just how he's hurting...For he loves every one of you, regardless of your story. And if you met my father, I know he'd give you love! He'd lift you up, apologize and give you all a hug. For those who think you know my father, remember who you are. We all can make mistakes and carry ugly scars. Because I know my father, I can promise this -- Just like you and I, things we don't mean can sometimes slip. We all continue learning. This life can be so rough...So if you know my father, please try not to be tough. My father has a daughter, and I have feelings too. And if I knew your father, I would do the same for you."

  • CAITLYN JENNER'S DOCU-SERIES PREMIERES ON E!

    After months of rumors and speculation, Caitlyn Jenner's docu-series premiered on Sunday night (July 26th.) I Am Cait opened with Caitlyn discussing the pressure that she is feeling being in the spotlight as a representative of the trans community.

    The premiere had moments reminiscent of the other family reality shows with Caitlyn getting done up by her glam squad and talking about how many Twitter followers she had. It was also revealed that Kris' former best friend, Ronha Kamihira, has become one of Caitlyn's confidants and not her girlfriend as it was rumored after the divorce from Kris Jenner.

    • The majority of the episode featured Caitlyn spending time with her sisters and her mother, Esther. Esther referred to the whole situation as "overwhelming" and admitted that Caitlyn is beautiful but she still sees Bruce. Esther also recalled how Bruce used to not want to put on new clothes and suggested it may have been an early sign of his inner struggle. She also referenced a bible passage about men dressing like women to which the family counselor explained that, in her opinion, Caitlyn has always been a woman.
    • At another point in the show, Caitlyn expresses concern that her kids hadn't come over to meet Caitlyn despite saying they support the transition. The episode featured cameos from Kylie Jenner who dropped by and put some of her hair extensions into Caitlyn's locks. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West also dropped by for a visit. Kanye revealed how much he admires Caitlyn for being strong enough to be herself despite her life in the spotlight as part of a famous family. Kim admired how skinny Caitlyn looked.

    OTHER MAJOR MOMENTS:

    • Caitlyn revealed that she once contemplated suicide when she was alone with a gun in the house.
    • Caitlyn wants to do "Who Wore It Best?" against Kris.
    • She met with the family of Kyler Prescott -- the 14-year-old transgender boy from San Diego who took his own life back in May.

    AUDIO FROM THE SHOW:

    In clip one, Caitlyn on her dark moments.
  • "I know how these kids can feel. I've had some very dark moments in my life. I have been in my house... With a gun and said... Let's just end it right here. Um, no more pain, no more suffering. That struggle... It's real. And I've been there."
