Oprah Winfrey has lined up Jason Collins for the next episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter" where he'll appear alongside his twin brother Jarron and other family members for the first time since announcing that he's gay.  Watch the trailer inside and see a sneak peek of Rihanna's " Rihanna 777" special....

 

 

On Sunday, May 5, at 8/7c,  Oprah Winfrey sits down with NBA player Jason Collins; his twin brother, Jarron; and their parents, Portia and Paul Collins, sister-in-law Elsa Collins and aunt Teri Jackson, a San Francisco Superior Court judge whom Jason confided in.

It will be the Collins family in their first interview together since Jason became the first active male professional athlete in one of the four major American team sports to announce he's gay. Watch the teaser above....

 

Also on tv......

Remember that somewhat "ill-fated" "777" tour that Rihanna embarked on with the press and a few of her fans? Well...those of us who didn't get to fly to seven different countries in 7 days to celebrate RiRi's 7th album will be able to join in on the party for the FOX special “Rihanna 777.” Watch the sneak peek above and catch the special on Monday, May 6th at 8pm.

dmvjlc, I was only stating my opinion, not asking for approval. Thats what "cultured" people do. Everytime you turn on the tv, media, or radio its being forced down people's throats with subliminal brainwashing. The whole point of the comments sections is to see other people's views and opinions. Please get your life!

#1 Shade a Boy band from

#1 Shade a Boy band from England has a song called "Walks like Rihanna" they throwing shade all through the song saying she can't sing and can't dance but walks like Rihanna, what a befitting song it describes her perfectly!The Gay Ball Player! I try to hard to be tolerate of the gays, I don't judge I treat people the same but WHY do they always have to BROADCAST what they do? I mean I DON'T CARE about her sexuality but maybe the woman that's suppose to be your girlfriend should and your closest friends and family should know! Anderson Cooper and that crossed eyed Andy Cohen on Bravo whole IDENTITY is being Gay and talking about Gay stuff. IT'S ANNOYING! If you are gay be gay but my thing is stop USING AND WEARING it like it's a BADGE of HONOR! I DON'T CARE!

I couldnt have said it better

I couldnt have said it better myself. Why would you make someone a hero for STEALING 8 years of a young woman's life and exposing her to disease? He should be jailed or sued. That dirty no morals oprah will do ANYTHING to be politically correct if it gets her a dollar. She has no know by now that she cant wear but one dress at a time, and eat one meal at a time like the rest of us. If it was politically correct to bang your dog, she'd jump in and air it on her network. An immoral person with money and influence is a dangerous thing. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT OUR YOUNG BOYS DO EVERYTHING TO IMITATE their athletic idols. Rappers dont have a tenth of their influence.

These comments convey the

These comments convey the same ignorance we as black people do not want bestowed upon us. I am trying to understand why do you all feel like someone gay needs our insignificant asses to "agree" or say "yes, you can be gay." LOL THEY DO NOT NO MORE THAN WE NEED THEM TO AGREE WITH OUR HETEROSEXUALITY. The one that calls it "unnatural"...I guess black men making babies all over he place and not taking care of them is natural because when we hear THOSE NBA stories nothing is wrong with that. Now I do agree...this is NOT news but it is NOT news because I COULDN'T CARE LESS ABOUT WHO ANYONE IS SLEEPING WITH BESIDES ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Stay in ya damn lane! As long as people are not screwing children...as long as it is another consenting adult KNOCK YOURSELF OUT!!! I would rather them sleep with men than keke and shaquanda, make babies, not take care of them and I PAY FOR THEM! We sound like idiots every time this subject comes up. And fellas the ONLY reason you THINK you have to comment the way you do when this subject comes up is personal. You want to try to make it clear you are FAR FROM GAY and you sound stupid. If you like a WOMAN what would a man liking you do to you??? NOTHING more than if an unattractive liked you. Just please use COMMON SENSE when commenting. It is VERY obvious when this issue comes up those of us that have been cultured and those of us that have not! Cultured people know when moving through out this life in varied situations you are not going to agree with everything people do but you do not have to to get a goal accomplished. This man may not agree with the groupies his teammates screw but he is not there to be concerned with that. He is there on a team to play ball!!!! People ALWAYS go ham about this issue unnecessarily. Typing comments while YOU DOING SHIT PEOPLE DO NOT AGREE WITH EITHER....PREMARITAL SEX IS JUST AS "UNNATURAL" AS THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE BUT SOME HOW BEING A BABY MA/DADDY HAS BECAUSE SOMETHING "UNNATURAL" "THEY" HAVE GOTTEN US USE TO AS WELL HUH? The same ones type smashing and aint married the first! Children out of wedlock...etc....and if you do not do that YOU GOT SOMETHING you hiding! Shut the fcuk up about other people business and find you some! "I do not agree with the lifestyle" haaaaaaa WHO CALLED YOU AND SAID YOU NEEDED TO SIGN OFF ON IT?????

How pathetic it is that you

How pathetic it is that you are brainwashed that every time a black mother gives birth, you are payin for it. Single and married people today need financial help when they are unemployed. Corporations receive more WELFARE than poor people, but you dont have a problem with that because you are brainwashed to genocide your own black self through abortion. I would much rather for a single unwed mother to feed her child with my tax dollar than some politician buying his mistress gifts and living the high life and then sending the rest overseas to take care of africa and south america's fatherless children.

This bama never got more

This bama never got more attention in his life... My son said who's Jason Collins and he follows basketball every day of his life. His career is lack luster and THIS is his come up!?! WTF... POS calling him on the phone, he's on Oprah next thing you know he'll be the spokesperson for some brand, I don't care if he is gay or straight, why do we have to hear about it on every news source and show!? Hell we already know there are gay men in all sports and some are open about just not to the world and that is how it should be I don't go around wearing the H on my chest... Live you life Mr. Collins but sheesh we got the message last week, Your GAY---> so what? this is 2013 we're good, no need to saturate the entire media with this, I guess this too shall pass.

He's like the Frank Ocean of

He's like the Frank Ocean of the NBA. His "coming out" triumphed any real talent that may be there. I'm so tired of people being celebrated b/c they come out of the closet. Nobody knew who you were before this story was plastered on every news site. This is getting so old and tiresome. You come out of the closet and get awards, tv specials, and all kind of accolades. This is 2013 and it's nothing new to be gay. You want to be celebrated? Then find a cure for cancer, start a non-profit organization to aid abused children, open a shelter for homeless people, pay tuition for some deserving, at-risk high school students, mentor some young men on how to be good/hands-on fathers. I'm annoyed by this whole situation.

Isn't it funny how nobody

Isn't it funny how nobody knew who this guy was until he put this out? He is not a hero. This punk ass was down low with a WNBA chick for 8 freakin years! All this propaganda is like a conspiracy to make people think its cool to be gay. I'm not homophobic, but morally I don't agree with the lifestyle, especially those who are living double lives killing straight people because they are disgusted with themselves.

This story is beat to death.

This story is beat to death. Like I could see if he suffered some kind of discrimination but just because your gay you get book deals, and a trip to Oprah? Come on son...I'm announcing that I'm straight tomorrow. Something smells fishy like he might be lying to get fame type of fishy. Nevertheless.

If you don't think the power

If you don't think the power that be ISN'T USING THIS NIGGA FOR AN AGENDA then you must be crazy. Out of no where he's on "people magazine" and 3 days later after coming out HE'S ON OPRAH NEXT CHAPTER??? Come on man their trying to get black people to get comfortable with an unnatural lifestyle so that we wont procreate with each other AND SO WE'LL LEAVE OUR CIVIL RIGHTS ISSUES BEHIND AND GIVE IT TO HOMOSEXUALS black people are always being used to Further SOMEONE ELSES AGENDA alwaysssssssss. They did it with Feminism in the 70's where they used black women for their agenda, they did it with illegal mexicans, now they doing it with the gays comparing OUR CIVIL RIGHT struggles in this country with being GAY in this country. Like cut this shit out man THIS DUDE FACE BEEN ON EVERY CHANNEL FOR THE LAST WEEK give the shit a rest, but then again THAT'S THEIR PLAN, IF YOU GET "NIGGGAS" TO GET ON THIS BANDWAGON, THEN THEY HAVE SOME OF THE BIGGEST ENTERTAINERS AND INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TO SHOWCASE THEIR AGENDA WHICH IS BLACK AMERICANS.
LetsGetIt's picture

Since when have we not been

Since when have we not been procreating??? The agenda you NEED to be concerned with you are not. We sale drugs (on the lowest end of the pole), we drop out of school at crazy rates, we make babies (procreate as you put it) and we do not take care of them....need I go on??? THOSE are the agendas we need to be concerned with. And these "civil rights" you are mentioning...you doing the same thing whites did to us. So now we have them we don't understand someone else wanting them??????? WHEN DID WE GET THIS WAY????? Do I think a man needs to marry a man? Nope. Do I think it messes up any man that wants to marry a woman? Nope. No child that isnt gay is going to be gay because a man wants a man. Gay children are born to STRAIGHT PARENTS so no one is "making" people be gay. If you stop trying to prove your manhood by your comment intellect may just kick in and you realize ""ohhhhhhh just like there was not a day that I had to DECIDE/CHOSE to be heterosexual they may have just had the same attraction I have, just to the same sex."

For some reason, I think it's not him, but the media making this into a full-blown issue. I really wonder if he knew they were going to make such a huge hoopla over this. I don't know, but I'm really sick of it. I KNEW Oprah was going to get on board.

understand what you are

understand what you are saying but if this is simply the media making this into a full-blown case then he can turn down interviews. this sellout nigga keeps telling the world that he loves dicks. now his name is going to start popping up every damn february for black history month. blk folks cannot get rid of this dude.

Why is it necessary for the

Why is it necessary for the 'gays' to constantly put their sexuality/sexual preference in everyone's face? I'm a female, I LOVE men but I don't have to put it in anyone's face (i.e. magazine covers, ABC interview with George Stephanopoulos, interview with Oprah, etc). All of this whoopla because he likes d*cks? All of this whoopla because he likes rubbing up against another hairy man? All of this whoopla because he likes sticking another dude in booty or he likes getting a penis put into his booty? Give me a break! Is this newsworthy? A SEVEN foot man wanting an intimate relationship with another man shouldn't be the top story in the media. I agree with another post that said that he is milking this for all that it is worth. I guess that he trying to get a sneaker endorsement or something since he's a free agent and may not get signed. Honestly, I think that the NBA teams want to be known for their basketball talent not because they have the first openly gay player. All of this media frenzy will just take away from the game if you asked me if he gets signed. Jason dear, I think that you are officially retired but you're trying to keep hope alive thinking that you will be get signed. If you don't get signed, you're betting on getting a gatorade or sneaker endorsement. By the way, I'm sure that Becky (i.e. former fiancee) knew something was up but since she's 6'5" herself, she was just happy to have a dude taller than she is so she simply ignored all of the warning signs and her woman's instinct to run like hell.

i think u meant to say the

i think u meant to say the woman loving RIHANNA HAS HER TONGUE WAGGING FOR EVERY STRIPPER IN THE CLUB AND CONSTANTLY STALKING AND TRYING TO GET WITH CIARA. THAT'S WHAT I SEE. WHEN A PERSON STALKS ANOTHER PERSON ALL THE TIME IT IS OUT OF LUST OR LOVE. THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE. SEEMS LIKE MELISSA AND STRIPPERS ARE NOT ENOUGH FOR HER TO BE SATISFIED, BUT SHE WILL NEVER HAVE THE BEAUTIFUL SEXY CIARA, SO SHE MIGHT AS WELL STOP STALKING.

I think it's good that he's being honest about his sexuality since that's the first step to healing, but I can't help but to think that he has a great PR team behind him and/or he knew the opportunities and doors this announcement would open for him. His bball career is coming to a close (he is a 34 yr. old player) and this announcement is a great way to secure his future. It's sort of painfully obvious.
