Radar 4/26: The Pop Culture Periscope

As we noted last week, this week is the last of April. Next up is May, then June, then…summer!

Sorry, didn’t mean to skip so far ahead, but as the weather heats up, it seems that everybody’s mood is lifting as well, which is a very beautiful thing. It can only get better.

So, are you all caught up on your reality fix or are you too engrossed in the NBA playoffs to care about “The Basketball Wives?” Did you catch Gabourey on “SNL” on Saturday? If so, please share your thoughts. Are you, like the rest of us, still recovering from Mo’Nique’s family drama that played out on Oprah last week? Speaking of Lady O, are you ready to commit to driving-without-talking for ‘National No Phone Zone Day’ this Friday? Be sure to tune in to “The Oprah Winfrey Show” for details.

This week, we’re keeping our fingers tightly crossed for Niecy who, despite her best efforts to keep the fancy footwork going, is not feeling as much love from the judges as we’d hoped for.Tonight, she enters her sixth week of competition. You are voting, right? Oh, and we don’t mean to leave out the ever-so-handsome Ochocinco. We’re pulling (and voting) for you, too, brother.
