ANGELA BASSETT: AS SMART AS SHE IS GOOD LOOKING

We can’t help but wonder what Angela Bassett (who happens to look GORGEOUS here) thinks about the current college admission scandal. Angela, 60, happens to have a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from YALE – and her parents didn’t pull any strings to get her there. In fact, Angela grew up in a low-income family, but her smart mother emphasized the importance of good grades and insisted her children prepare for college. Angela also met her husband of 21 years, Courtney B Vance, while both were at Yale, and recently Yale gave the Black Panther actress an honorary doctoral degree. Eat your hearts out, Lori Laughlin and Felicity Huffman…

TERRENCE HOWARD HAS BEEN KNOWN TO STRETCH THE TRUTH

Under Terrence Howard’s flashy gold sport jacket he’s wearing a shirt with a large dog’s face on it. The smooth-talking Atlanta star is a man of contradictions. One puzzling feature is his educational history, which is unconfirmed, to put it politely. A few years ago he bragged on Jimmy Kimmel Live that he has a PHD in chemical engineering from South Carolina State University. In fact, he spoke at the school’s commencement ceremony in 2012, and they presented him with an HONORARY Doctorate of Humane Letters. He never went to that school and SCSU doesn’t even OFFER a PHD in chemical engineering.

LET’S HEAR IT FOR NICK CANNON: A MAN WHO DOESN’T THINK HE KNOWS EVERYTHING!

Nick Cannon loves Plaid at Good Day NY

Sororities at Howard University must be rolling out the red carpet to welcome a highly eligible freshman: Nick Cannon! He’s registered to start the fall semester in the Communications Department, but with his experience, couldn’t he be a TEACHER? When Nick,35, graduated from high school he immediately started working in show business and put off going to college. Lately he’s been getting philosophical about the importance of education and felt compelled to return to school. He still has TV jobs, but aspires to graduate in four years – if he doesn’t party too much. Nick has already set aside the fancy suits and bought himself a book bag.

ASHLEY JUDD IS EARNING A DOCTOR’S DEGREE – AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ACTING!

Ashley Judd is clearly preparing herself for a political career and we’re all for it. What the world of politics needs most of all is more women. Being an actress can be a hindrance and a help. Judd has a famous and likeable face, but her political capabilities are untested. (She has already established herself as a political activist and humanitarian.) But she has been quietly preparing herself for the right moment – most likely to run for the Senate in her home state of Kentucky. She earned a masters degree from the John F Kennedy School of Government at Harvard and is now enrolled in the Ph.D program at UC Berkeley. Her stellar education will more than make up for her lack of political experience. She’s got our vote!

KENDALL JENNER IS AS DUMB AS SHE IS BEAUTIFUL

119154PCN_BILLkendcut

Last night Kendall Jenner proved what we always suspected – that the Kardashians ARE borderline illiterate. She was supposed to make an introduction on the Billboard Awards and her words made absolutely no sense. She admitted that she’s “the worst reader.” Imagine being unable to read a teleprompter! THAT’S how uneducated she is. Like the Osbournes, the Kardashians and Jenners have plenty of money and don’t care if their kids get an education. Every time we hear Kim use the word “I” incorrectly instead of “ME,” we cringe. Example: “Mom invited Khloe and I to the movies.” WRONG. The grammatically correct statement is “Mom invited Khloe and ME to the movies.” Lack of education always rears its ugly head.

WENDY WILLIAMS IS RIGHT- BEYONCE IS NO GENIUS

#wendywilliams #beyonce #janetcharlton

As much as we admire Beyonce, we have to admit Wendy Williams is NOT wrong when she says Beyonce “can’t talk” and sounds like she has a fifth grade education. Beyonce fans are outraged, but take a look at Michael Jackson– his singing and dancing talent was unmatched, but his lack of education made him an awkward and childlike conversationalist. Beyonce concentrated on dancing and singing in school and always had other people taking care of her and her career – first her parents, followed by Jay-Z. At 31, she still sounds like a shy and breathy little girl. So Beyonce will never be offered her own talk show (she’d probably panic at the idea anyway) and Wendy, who CAN talk, has a perfect right to her own opinion.

TYRA BANKS WANTS YOU TO THINK SHE GOT A DEGREE FROM HARVARD!

#tyrabanks #janetcharlton

We’ve been increasingly suspicious about Tyra Banks’ claims that she recently graduated from Harvard Business School. Since she never got a bachelor’s degree from any college, how did she get into Harvard to pursue an MBA? Turns out, she didn’t. Jezebel exposed her exaggeration. Actually Tyra didn’t get a diploma- she got a certificate of completion for finishing a nine week non-degree EXTENSION business course which has NO requirements for formal education and does not count toward any type of degree. An MBA takes qualification and two years of studying. Tyra IS smart, but she didn’t graduate from Harvard.

SMARTER THAN HE LOOKS: ROB KARDASHIAN BREAKS AWAY FROM THE FAMILY CURSE!

#robkardashian #janetcharlton

Hold on! We actually have something POSITIVE to post regarding the Kardashian family! One of them has come to his senses and opted to get an education! Rob was runner-up on “Dancing With the Stars,” and we feared that would be the highlight of his life. But he’s put aside the usual Kardashian options of fame cultivating and name-selling, and tweeted that he has registered at USC this fall to earn a law degree. Rob graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 2009 and just drifted since then. He’s following in his father’s successful, but not-so-glorious footsteps, thanks to his defense of OJ Simpson. This is the first good news we’ve had from the Kardashian Kamp in quite awhile. Nice work, Rob.

TOM CRUISE AND KATIE HOLMES BROKE UP BECAUSE OF SURI AND SCIENTOLOGY

#tomcruise #katieholmes #divorce #janetcharlton

We were NOT completely surprised by the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes split that was announced today because it was inevitable. It’s all about Suri. She just turned six and it’s time for major educational decisions to be made. So far, she’s been homeschooled by Tom’s two Scientology sisters who always live nearby, and they also tutored his other two children. Katie’s not happy with that. She wants Suri to have the same memorable school and educational experiences that SHE had, and be more of a normal kid. She can see that Tom’s other children are hampered by their minimal education. Katie’s lawyer announced that “Katie’s concern is her daughter‘s best interest.” And she means it. Katie and Suri were surrounded by Tom’s Scientology family and all their Scientology housekeepers, bodyguards, nannies, etc. every day – she rarely spent time with her husband alone. That’s not the world she wants Suri to grow up in.

MICHAEL JACKSON’S STARTLING LACK OF EDUCATION

This is the Michael Jackson letter that Lisa Marie Presley pulled OFF the auction block at Julien’s Auctions this week and we can imagine why. The note was written to Lisa Marie somewhere between 1993 and 1996 when Michael was around 36 years old and it is a sad illustration of the results of home schooling. Michael wrote at the level of a ten year old boy. The abysmal grammar, punctuation, spelling, and most of all – the HANDWRITING – are shocking and embarrassing for a grown man. His lack of education was tragic and Lisa Marie’s probably isn’t much better. Fortunately, Michael’s own children are not following in his footsteps.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT
    |

    Love him or hate him, this guy is a loudmouth who doesn’t hesitate to tell it like he sees it- but there’s one thing he NEVER talks about: his prostate problem. Long story short: he LEAKS! He likes to project an image of macho virility, but under his custom made suits are custom made “diapers.” He’s VERY self-conscious and has absorbent but undetectable “panty liners” sewn into all his underwear, to avoid wet spots. Thanks to his arrogant behavior, he has more than a few enemies and he’s terrified his secret will be exposed and he’ll be forever ridiculed!
