About Me

My photo
A native Philadelphian, Patty Jackson, was born on Monday, November 4th, 1963, and has entered her silver anniversary in broadcasting. She attended South Philadelphia Motivation High School and the American Academy of Broadcasting before embarking on her radio career at WSSJ in Camden, NJ, when it was owned by Broadcast Pioneers member Pat Delsi. Her diverse career has included country, urban and pop formats, including Power 99 FM and Q102. But, her warm and soulful voice found its true home with adult radio listeners on WDAS-FM. Patty is the reigning Queen of Mid-days from 10am to 3pm, Monday through Saturday. Patty’s brand of realness has kept her audience connected throughout her 25-year broadcasting career.

Major changes are coming to The Real Housewives Of Atlanta. The producers at the Bravo network are ready to show NeNe Leakes and HYPERLINK "http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-atlanta/bio/kim-zolciak" Kim Zolciak the door. The ladies want more money. They feel they have made the show a hit, and now it’s time to get paid. The ladies feel they should be given extra money for hair makeup and clothes, electric bills and airfare. The big wigs at the Bravo network feel the woman can be replaced. They feel they made the women famous and the ladies should be glad they have a job. For the record, the ladies make close to $300,000 per season. Season three could see major changes, and one of them could be the addition of Actress Victoria Rowell. Rowell is best known for her role as “Drucilla” on The Young And The Restless. I also hear Dr. J’s wife Dory is being courted to be on the show. NeNe and Kim feel they are being taken advantage of because the Bravo network has made a lot of money off of their real housewife franchises. There are plans to put the shows in syndication to replace many of the soap operas that are going off the air. The women who appear on these shows will not get any additional money.

Where are all my friends? As people flee Tiger Woods, many are wondering who is sticking by him. Sponsors are leaving him. His wife Elin has taken the kids and fled to Sweden. Who is left? Charles Barkley and Michael Jordan are close to Woods. Can they help him? The list of women grows every day, and they all have a Tiger story to tell. The porn stars, cocktail waitresses, bikini models, nightclub hostesses, they have all sold him out. Word on the street is that Woods was cheap with them, so now they want to get all the money they can. As of press time, Woods has been in hiding. Will Barkley and Jordan be able to help him, or give him some advice? Woods is taking a break from the world of golf to get his life together. If and when he returns, you know all will be forgiven if he returns to the game in top form.

The 67th Annual Golden Globe Awards take place January 17th on NBC, and the leading nominees include the Lee Daniels’ movie Precious. The movie is up for best picture, best actress (Gabby Sidebe), best supporting actress (Mo’Nique). The Clint Eastwood directed movie, Invictus, is also up for awards including best actor (Morgan Freeman) and best supporting actor (Matt Damon). The Cecil B. DeMille Award will be given to Martin Scorsese. The director is best known for his work with Robert DeNiro in the classic movies Casino, Raging Bull, Goodfellas and Taxi Driver. This year’s Miss Golden Globe will be Mavis Spencer, the daughter of Actress Alfre Woodard and Writer/Producer Roderick Spencer.

Steve Harvey’s new advice/relationship column debuts in the January issue of Essence magazine. Harvey is giving up all the men’s secrets. Look for Harvey to return as host of BET’s Celebration Of Gospel on Sunday January 10th. This issue’s cover features Anika Noni Rose, who is the voice of “Princess Tiana” in the Disney movie, The Princess And The Frog.

Speaking of the Disney movie, The Princess And The Frog is the number one movie in the country. This is Disney’s first African American princess, and the first hand drawn animation in five years. Over the years, all of the animation we have seen is computer generated. Even though there has been some controversy, because the princess is a frog throughout most of the movie, the storyline is great. Disney’s The Princess And The Frog has been nominated for best animated movie by The Golden Globe Awards.

Beyonce has been named Billboard Artist Of The Year. She is also close to signing a deal to do a series of shows in Las Vegas. They are scheduled for the middle of the year.

Our condolences go out to Funk Pioneer George Clinton. He lost his mom last week. Actor/Comedian Charlie Murphy also suffered a loss this week. Murphy, who is the younger brother of Eddie Murphy, lost his wife of 12 years. Tisha Taylor Murphy died after a long battle with cancer. They had three kids. Murphy recently released a book about his life talking about growing up in his brother’s shadow and forging his own career with the help of fellow Comedian Dave Chappelle.

So what’s happening with the Cannons? Nick Cannon and his wife Mariah Carey are planning a busy 2010. Nick is planning some exciting programs as chairman of the Teen Nick channel on Nickelodeon. Nick wants to do a new version of Josie & The Pussycats. He will also continue his work on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, and he will be starting work on a new radio show in New York. Mrs. Cannon (Mariah) is planning on going on tour. For the first time in three years, she is hitting the road. She is doing two shows in the area: January 2nd at the Borgata and February 1st at the Tower Theatre.

One of the most anticipated music tours of the new year is The 2010 Lilith Fair tour. The all ladies’ lineup is scheduled to have Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu and Jill Scott on the lineup. Yes, the tour is coming to Philadelphia, and as soon as I find out the date and venue, I will pass it on.
