​ ​ ​ ​


YBF funny chick Wanda Sykes has been nominated for TWO Emmys for her HBO stand up I'ma Be Me.  Details on Wanda's nominations plus Whoopi clarifying her defense of Mel Gibson when you read on.

Wanda Syke's HBO special is nominated for both Outstanding Variety, Music, Comedy Special and Outstanding Writing in a Variety Music or Comedy Special.

Sykes got word this past May that both her shows, The Wanda Sykes' Show and her sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine, would not be picked up for another season, but hopefully these Emmy nominations can take care of that.

Here are some clips from Wanda's stand up:

Funny stuff.  I hope she wins.  The Emmy Awards air live on Sunday August 29th at 8 pm EST on NBC.



On today's episode of The View Whoopi clarifies the statements she made yesterday about Mel Gibson.  She says that she was not defending what he did, but that she simply does not think of him as a racist.

Here's the full clip of Whoopi's whole speech:


Your entitled to your own opinion Whoopi, but what Mel said sounded a bit racist to me.  But to each his own.
