Mixed-Race Cheerios Commercial: Why Are People Freaking Out? (VIDEO)

So there is this whole huge controversy over a Cheerios commercial featuring a mixed-race family… and honestly, we’re just confused. In this day and age, when you can’t throw a rock without hitting a blended family, why on Earth is a Cheerios ad with a mixed-race child, a white mom and a black dad such a big deal?

The new mixed-race Cheerios advertisement is about the most banal, innocent, boring commercial for a cereal product ever. Seriously, there is absolutely nothing offensive in any way possible about this commercial.

An adorable little girl (who we think resembles Shirley Temple all over the place) walks up to a kitchen table where her mother is seated and says, “Mom, Dad told me Cheerios are good for your heart, is that true?” Mom replies, “Says here that Cheerios has whole grain oats that can help remove cholesterol and that’s heart healthy.” The kid responds by dumping the Cheerios box over her sleeping dad’s chest. He wakes up covered in Cheerios and squeals out something that sounds like “Karen?!?”

Dancing With the Stars’ Derek Hough May Be Leaving For Good



According to backstage buzz at Dancing With the Star, newly crowned fourth-time champion pro Derek Hough may be leaving the show again — for good this time. Maybe Derek is just bored at winning all the time now that he has yet another Mirrorball Trophy under his belt.

There is no question that Derek Hough and Kellie Picker were the belles of the Dancing With the Stars 2013 ball this season. They were frontrunner favorites from the moment they first hit the dance floor.

While it was kind of amazing at first to see the former American Idol finalist and the handsome dance pro sweep away the competition every week, it actually started to get a bit predictably boring there toward the end.

Who won Dancing With the Stars last night seemed almost a foregone conclusion to anyone who has been watching Season 16 religiously. Let’s face it, Kellie Pickler and Derek Hough have been dominating Dancing With the Stars 2013 all season long. While there was always the chance for a last minute shakeup result, it would have been seriously shocking had they not taken home the Mirror Ball trophy.

We don’t really want to call Season 16 boring per se… but anyone who didn’t see the writing on the wall practically from the first week was probably drunk. Thankfully, despite the ultimate predictability of who won Dancing With the Stars from the moment Kellie hit the dance floor, a season of truly delightful performances still made it worth watching  mostly.

Teen Mom Jenelle Evans was back in jail Tuesday following her latest arrest—for heroin possession and assault, although she was free to head home later the same day, after being released on bond.  One thing that will immediately be different, by court orders, is she will not be running straight back into the arms of her bad boy hubby, Courtland Rogers, is reports.


Jenelle’s attorney, Dustin R. T. Sullivan told that a judge ordered his client and Rogers to stay away from each other—going one step further even, by ordering they have no contact at all. “The judge ordered them not to have any contact with each other whatsoever,” Sullivan said. It’s probably the wisest thing Jenelle has been told for some time!
