Just like the painful reminder of your hoe tendencies that goes by the name of Herpes, everyone’s least favorite show ‘Single Ladies’ keeps popping up just when you think it’s gone forever.
After being dropped from VH1, Queen Latifah‘s Flavor Unit is developing all-new episodes for Centric. You know, the network that isn’t apart of anybody’s cable package.

“We are thrilled to be working once again with Flavor Unit Entertainment and Queen Latifah. She does it all and we are happy to have her join us as a creative force as we continue to grow Centric into a premiere destination for African-American women. We couldn’t be more excited about what’s ahead,” BET Networks chairman and CEO Debra  Lee said in a press release.

Under the deal, Flavor Unit, which is owned by Queen Latifah and her partner Shakim Compere, will produce new shows in addition to the Atlanta-based scripted show for Centric. The network also will begin airing episodes of the budding media maven’s syndicated daytime talk show in prime time.

Isn’t she lovely? Until Queen Latifah appears on the cover of Essence magazine above the headline ‘Yup, I’m A Stud’ we are all subject to her dressing in drag when the occasion calls for it. Now cuff your chick. It’s Mr. Steal Your Girl.

The 43-year-old traded in her favorite bleach stained Pelle Pelle shirt and Jordan brand basketball shorts  for a curve hugging, midnight blue glittery number at New York City Ballet’s Spring 2013 Gala at Lincoln Center last night.

The handclaps and Spanx for Cleo don’t end there. She has signed on to host a hour-long daytime talk show. ‘The Queen Latifah Show’ will feature a mix of celebrity interviews, live music performances and interest stories. The show is set to premiere this September 16 on CBS and it’s affiliate stations. Get money!

When Mona Scott Young has her version of Oprah’s Legends Ball in somebody’s backyard this summer I expect an invite and seat at the same table as K. Michelle. God has been good to us, too.

Also photographed at the conference: Tracee Ellis Ross, Tatyana Ali and NBC correspondent Mara Schiavocampo. Check out the auto-play video after the jump for more information on the cause. But first, please caption the picture of Tracee and Debra.

Queen Latifah in drag! And to what do we owe this dubious occasion to? Promotion!

Big Daddy Dane (with a female friend waiting in the wings) happily posed for photos and signed autographs with fans after her appearance on the ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ earlier this week. On everything, I love her energy! She always seems super chill. Benefit of good pussy I suppose.

At a stop on ‘The View’ this morning Queen Latifah shared her adoption plans.

“I’m actually kind of working on that” she said when asked about her intentions to adopt a child revealing she has babies on the brain. “I think I saw one of those specials . . . you know those movies of the week. And it was like – and I just always wanted to bring a child home.”

Don’t create an online advertising initiative for Queen Latifah to appear alongside Michael Jordan as spokesmen for the Hanes’ ComfortBlend Dick Hole Collection just yet.

Big Daddy Dana is denying reports that she came out of the same closet she has been hiding Cleo in during her appearance at the Long Beach lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Pride festival last month.

While on stage on May 19, Latifah referred to the crowd as “her people” and asked “Are you feeling all the unity?” sparking many to believe that she had finally embraced the aggressive stud that we all have seen flashes of since she shook Grant Hill with the ill crossover on ‘Living Single.’

“That definitely wasn’t the case,” she tells Entertainment Weekly. “I’ve never dealt with the question of my personal life in public. It’s just not gonna happen.”
