Bobbi Kristina has walked off the set of "For Better or Worse", the Tyler Perry TV show that airs on TBS.

Bobbi walked off the set last week, claiming she is not over the death of her mother Whitney Houston.  She only filmed a couple of episodes before quitting the show.

Bobbi is still filming her own reality TV show for Lifetime TV, where her reps say the filming is less stressful for her.

Perry's people are not commenting on her walk off but are having to re-write future episodes to explain the characters disappearance. The only thing they will say is that they are frustrated but support Bobbi Kristina fully.

It is being reported that Perry spoke with Bobbi Kristina privately about the situation.  Perry let the Houston family use his private jet to travel Whitney's body from L.A. to where she was laid to rest.

Kristina was being paid $30,000 per episode.  Although it is being reported that Whitney died broke, her estate has made quite a pretty penny for Bobbi Kristina, the sole heir to Whitney's millions.-DocFB

UPDATE:  Tyler Perry is denying the story and saying to leave this child alone.  Please see updated story on site.

This was rumor as of yesterday as Ellen was under contract for 5 years and would have to quit if Nigel Lithgow, the producer of American Idol, who has returned to the show, was going to make changes to Idol.

So in a Tweet, Ellen said

 "Dim the lights...I've voted myself off American Idol."

It followed with this released statement:

A couple months ago, I let FOX and the "American Idol" producers know that this didn't feel like the right fit for me. I told them I wouldn't leave them in a bind and that I would hold off on doing anything until they were able to figure out where they wanted to take the panel next. It was a difficult decision to make, but my work schedule became more than I bargained for. I also realized this season that while I love discovering, supporting and nurturing young talent, it was hard for me to judge people and sometimes hurt their feelings. I loved the experience working on "Idol" and I am very grateful for the year I had. I am a huge fan of the show and will continue to be.
 
OK, did she REALLY quit Idol or was she forced out?  We hear Randy Jackson is next and Kira DioGuardi is gone already.
Nigel Lithgow will be replacing Simon Cowell and we hear Jessica Simpson will be announced as a judge along with Nigel on Monday.
What we do not know now is if they will have 3 judges or 4.
Chris Isaak has expressed interest in the gig but Harry Connick Jr. is passing. 
With Ellen gone and Simon gone, is Idol over for you?-Dr.FB

After 20 years, Brooks & Dunn are calling it a career.  They posted a message on thier myspace page that says:

“After 20 years of making music and riding this trail together, we have agreed as a duo that it’s time [to] call it a day,”

"This ride has been everything and more than we could ever have dreamed. … We owe it all to you, the fans. If you hear rumors, don’t believe them, it’s just time. ”

That really came out of nowhere at least to me?  Any country fans see this coming?  20 years is a long time. We are sure there will be a reunion within 10 years. Didn't they have more hits than the Judds?-Dr.FB

Paula Abdul Quits/Leaves American Idol!

Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul announced on her Twitter page that she is leaving American Idol as they could not come to an agreement on her contract with Idol.

Paula had this to say on her official Twitter page.

 

With sadness in my heart, I’ve decided not to return to #IDOL. I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent, but most of all..Cont'd…

I’ll miss nurturing all the new talent,but most of all being a part of a show that I helped from day1become an international phenomenon.

What I want to say most, is how much I appreciate the undying support and enormous love that you have showered upon me

It truly has been breathtaking, especially over the past month

I do without any doubt have the BEST fans in the entire world and I love you all

That is some crazyness right there. They brought on the new chick last year n throw Ryan Seacrest a boatload of money. You knew that Abdul would not take a paycut. Wonder if this will effect the chemistry of the show.-Dr.FB
