Lauryn Hill To DELAY House Arrest And START Concert Tour + Queen Latifah Headed Toward Daytime TV Crown?!
Lauryn Hill is planning to hit the road before she starts her house arrest. Get the deets on the upcoming tour and find out about Queen Latifah's ratings victory inside.
Now that Lauryn Hill has been released from prison, she's ready to hit the road....on tour. Chick's still got some back taxes to pay.
Though the "Consumerism" singer has 3-months of home confinement to complete, a judge has given her the "okay" to go on tour from Nov. 15th through Dec. 31st. So far, Lauryn's team has not revealed concert dates and venues. We'll keep you posted....
We just hope Lauryn and her accountants remember to set some money aside for taxes this time!
And in tv ratings.....
Queen Latifah may be on the way to becoming daytime TV's reigning queen (watch out Ellen!). Since its debut a few weeks ago, Queen Latifah has been averaging 1.8 million viewers an episode since premiere week, according to Nielsen ratings data. That clearly makes her the "Queen" of the pack (in terms of new talk shows) as she's trumped "Bethenny", who's also doing well, in the ratings.
Though the "QL" show does not get better ratings than "Katie" with Katie Couric or "The Steve Harvey Show," it's still considered a hit because its ratings are better than the show that it replaced and Latifah was voted one of tv's most admired celebrities in daytime.
Outside of her ratings success, a source close to Latifah revealed to ShowbizSpy that her mom is battling cancer:
“Latifah says her mother is amazing. She goes through her chemotherapy treatments without complaining, has such a positive outlook on life and always wants to make sure everyone else is OK. Latifah promised Rita that she’ll be strong. And she’s making sure every day she has with her mother is special.”
Congrats to Latifah on her ratings success and we wish her mother well!
