I’m not sure what’s going on with BET but apparently everyone’s on the chopping block. Terrence J and Rocsi Diaz will no longer host the long running video countdown show, ’106 & Park’. Although no official announcement has been made, some recent reports suggest the duo will be leaving at the end of the current season.
Terrence and Rocsi are said to be venturing off in more television and film roles. While they may be grateful to have been apart of the BET family they’d like to take advantage of the opportunities that lay ahead.

Talk show host Regis Philbin of ‘Live With Regis & Kelly’ announced Tuesday morning that he will be retiring from the show later this year, sometime around the end of the summer. He’s hosted the show for 25 years, most recently sharing hosting duties with actress and TV personality Kelly Ripa. NBC’s Kathy Lee Gifford is Philbin’s former co-host.
The 79 year old host did not give further details on his reasons to retire nor a specific date when he will depart as host of the popular ABC morning talk show.
A little background on Philbin, he is referred to as “the hardest working man in show business” (a James Brown reference) and holds the Guinness World Record for the most time spent in front of a television camera. With each TV appearance, he adds to his record for most hours logged (16,100, as certified by Guinness World Records in 2008).
His most recent hosting gigs include ‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire’, ‘Million Dollar Password’, and hosting the first season of ‘America’s Got Talent‘.
On yesterday’s episode of 106 & Park Rosci discussed her own battle with Anorexia, the pressures on woman to look thin and how Anorexia and Bulimia affect ethnic women.
I commend Rocsi for doing this. So many people think these diseases affect young white women, and she is bringing attention to these diseases and the affect it has on the black and hispanic communities. Here’s a quote of what she said,
I just wanted to be skinny. That’s all I wanted. And it’s hard even now in this industry. God! We go through so much. All the women in this industry, this is so not us guys. When we wake up in the morning, this is not what you see. And it’s even hard with the blogs… Recently I wore my hair in a ponytail and they were talking about my ears. They were like “Keebler Elf” and this that and the other. And you try not to make it hurt, but it hurts and your appearance is everything.
The only reason why I came out. Alot of minority women go through this. I used to think that it was a “white” syndrome. I thought only white people were anorexic or bulimic and I didn’t think that anyone like me or that looked like me would go through this.
