    'Dr. Oz': Ovarian Cancer Scare

    Dr. Oz dedicated this show to making women aware of the misdiagnosis of Ovarian Cancer. He started off by showcasing several families affected by ovarian cancer misdiagnosis. Dr. Oz set up a moving screening clinic in a mall. Women were invited to come down and fill out a vital one sheet then get an ultrasound. The subject is important to Dr. Oz because of the high number of misdiagnosed symptoms. It was mentioned that doctors have always been taught that there are NO symptoms to ovarian cancer. This incorrect teaching has lead to many problems. Over thirty percent of women received prescriptions for causes other than ovarian cancer when the symptoms are directly related to ovarian cancer. Doctors have misdiagnosed this disease. In this clip, the doctors screened one woman who just lost her mother to ovarian cancer and they found a large cyst.

    'The Wendy Williams Show': Death Threat from Terrence Howard

    What would set you off to the point that you would call someone and leave a message threatening his or her life? Well Terrence Howard found the answer to that question. According to Wendy Williams are her "Hot Topics" the newly wed Terrence Howard thought someone was making moves on his wife. The alleged other man was calling Terrence's wife and leaving voicemails. Terrence decided to call the other man and leave his own message for the man. The expletive laced message had a very even tone almost to the point of being morose. The message was:
    "If you call my wife again I'm going to come to your house and I'm going to cut your f***ing throat...Understand that. I'm gonna tell you this one time. You call my wife again, I'm going to kill you."

    The most unfortunate part of this is that Terrence left the message for the wrong person. The story is convoluted but suffice it to be that Terence had to call again and apologize. I agree with Wendy, celebrities should never leave messages or text people unless they understand that the message will be heard by the world.

Later in the interview she drank from her trusty cup and started choking. The camera stayed on Mehcad while she coughed and tried to pull it together. She apologized for that as well.

Everyone sat around the pool the night before the deliberation ceremony when the BIG shocker happened. Kevin came strolling into the hotel sanctuary. If you don't remember, Kevin talked alot of smack about how Toccara couldn't be his lady because she couldn't make up her mind about the white alliance guys. She did dismiss them but Kevin though she was weak. Toccara chased him, not to get him to return but to give a piece of her mind. Kevin voluntarily walked off the show and out of Toccara's heart. This time Kevin flew half way around the world to apologize and try to sweep her off her feet. Tocarra seemed to be buying it for a while. The other guys were mostly upset thinking he left and he should stay gone. In the deliberation room, Toccarra addressed the issue by saying that Kevin left the first time because of his principles and now Tocarra is eliminating him based on her principles. Cedric also was eliminated; it's down to Frank and Jason.

    'Planet Rock the Story of Hip Hop The Crack Generation': Drug Policy

    Planet Rock the Story of Hip Hop: The Crack Generationfocused on every aspect of how hip-hop and crack ran in the same circles. Washington D.C. took notice of the crack generation in the eighties. Ronald Reagan and the Congress, both Democrats and Republicans banded together to make Crack cocaine more villainous than it's white powder counterpart. It was a veiled attempt by "Washington" to punish and start a war against Black people in the urban areas. People who wanted access to cheap drugs, used crack. Even though white people used crack, Black people mostly used it and Washington made a concerted effort to demonize that drug over any other drug. Laws were passed to give users and dealers penalties that were 100 times harsher than powder cocaine.

    'Planet Rock the Story of Hip Hop The Crack Generation': The BATTERAM

    This documentary chronicles the parallel rise of Hip Hop and Crack. Hip Hop was influenced by what was happening on the streets and in the mid-eighties it was all about crack. The infamous Los Angeles Police Chief, Darryl Gates introduced a new weapon in the "War on Drugs', the BATTERAM. The Batteram was a modified tank with a long battering tool, a ram, which crushed houses and lives at the same time all in the name of justice. Darryl Gates' Batteram helped to cement him in Hip-Hop history and in the black community as an overbearing force for destruction. "Crack cocaine was used as an excuse to militarize the police force", according to Dr. Todd Boyd, Professor at USC. Nancy Reagan was a part of the publicity campaign used to advertise the Batteram. The streets reacted in their own way against the police tactics. Ice T had a lot to say about the police and it was around that time he quit his hustle and jumped into the Hip-Hop world.
