Sorry, Queen Latifah…
The Queen Latifah Show, now in its 2nd season, will be halting production immediately! Sources at TMZ say the staff was brought into an office this morning and given the news…the show’s getting the ax.
Queen Latifah didn’t keep quiet on this, either. In a note posted on her Facebook page, she says:
“Your dedication and sacrifice was crucial to the entire team, and in the face of intense challenges, you displayed ‘True Grit.!’”
She ends by saying, “The most important thing in life is that you wake up every single day and take chances. No matter what the outcome … believe in yourself and continue to fly.”
Amen, sister. On to bigger and better things!

Courteney Cox is Thanksgiving’s biggest fan!
The actress has her plate full, what with planning a wedding to fiancé Johnny McDaid AND starring in Cougar Town, but she’s not giving up on Thanksgiving like, at all. She’s having a 30-person event that’s going to be quite the soiree. Don’t expect stuff from scratch, though…
“I have, like, 30 people coming for Thanksgiving. That’s a lot,” Cox tells PEOPLE at the celebration for the show’s 100th episode on Wednesday night. When asked what she plans on cooking, she jokes, “It’s all canned. It tastes great.”
Apparently, you can blame the south for this social butterfly’s big event hankerings.
“I grew up in Alabama. where my grandmother on Sundays — I have 21 first cousins — got the entire family together at 5:30. So I’m just used to having big groups gathering.”
But of course, getting everyone together can be tough, explains Cox, especially in a city like L.A.
“No one has family out here, so it’s trying to create some sort of community that I have people over,” she says. “I say that people are always welcome to come on Sundays.”
Awww, can I have an invite?

Sure, Kendall Jenner just snagged a big Estee Lauder campaign, but the 19-year-old has been watching her sisters do it, for years!
The model opened up to fellow Estée spokesmodel Joan Smalls in a new interview for the cosmetics label’s blog:
On seeing her sisters apply makup: “Randomly enough, my older sisters went to a makeup school when they were younger, so they’re all really good at it,” she says. “They’ve always told me that ‘natural is better.’”
On celebrity inspiration: As for celebrity inspiration, she calls Angelina Jolie “ridiculously beautiful,” and looks to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Rihanna for style cues.
On her nails: “I like to keep it really neutral with nudes and grays,” she says. “But if I’m going on vacation, I like color. My favorite polishes are royal blue or red.”
Advice for taking selfies: “Lighting is a big thing. If you’re not in the right light it just won’t work,” she explains. “I’m not into using too many filters, either. I like to keep it pretty natural or black and white is always cool. But above all, you have to know your face: everybody has their good side. And practice! Practice makes perfect.”
Off to practice your selfies yet?

Breaking news: Randy Jackson WON’T be returning to American Idol next season!
“After 13 seasons, I felt now was the perfect time to leave American Idol,” Jackson said in a statement to Deadline. “I’m proud to have been a part of a series that discovered some incredible artists and will go down in history as one of the most successful television shows ever. A true original, Idol started it all. Onto what’s next.”
Woah. Remember when Kelly Clarkson won the first season way back when? The show HAS come a long way, and Randy should be proud. But Randy has a lot more to do: he’s said to be in the midst of producing TV and film projects in addition to managing artists through his company Dream Merchant 21 Entertainment.
What do you think of American Idol these days? A LOT has changed!
