Kelly Rowland & Brandy Are BOTH Getting TV Shows… But Only One Of Them Is Hosting A New Singing Competition!

| Filed under: TV NewsBrandyKelly RowlandX Factor

no title

It's been a minute since these ladies were in the spotlight, but we're excited to see them shine again!

Kelly Rowland is doing the least Kelly Rowland thing of her career and getting a show of her own! Chasing Destiny will follow Kel as she tries to find the next female singing sensation.

The 34-year-old is no stranger to reality competitions since she was a judge for both X Factor UK and USA, so her take on the genre will hopefully prove to be entertaining.

But not to be outdone, Brandy is also making a comeback with a brand-new sitcom!

Zoe Moon will feature Brandy as a recently divorced single mother trying to balance her career and family. And since Brandy made a name for herself by starring on Moesha, we're confident this new show will be right up her alley!

Both series were announced as part of the BET line up on Tuesday, so you should be able to watch them in early 2016!

Will U be tuning in??

| Filed under: Simon CowellGordon RamsayNatalia KillsX Factor

Natalia Kills STILL doesn't see anything wrong with her bullying!

Sometimes the best way to make a scandal go away is to simply stop talking about it and to pretend like it never happened!

But apparently that's just not Natalia Kills' style!

In case you've been living under a rock, the singer recently came under heavy fire and lost her job at X Factor New Zealand after she and her husband Willy Moon were accused of bullying a contestant.
