OUT 1138--ILLI MO A&E BITZ (MAY 24-30)




STL native playwright/director Chrys Yvette is staging the St Louis Premiere of her stageplay THE DATING GAME that will take place Sat. June 2 and Sun June 3 at The Regional Arts Commission. For more info go to

On Thursday, July 12, OUTTOWN will spinoff to a new blog called OUTSTAGN, giving a stage (or platform) to mover and shakers in the arts and entertainment in the STL area (and “out of town”) by ways of interviews and features. It also will focus on recaps and reviews of fashion and style as seen at red carpeted, regular club events, and fashion shows. Lastly, in our theme of stages, we will review live theater, and concerts.

It will be compiled at random.

And don’t worry, we will still have the OUTTOWN faves such as BLIND DISHZ, BLIND PICZ, PROMOCIALITES, BDAZEs and EVENTZ that will likely post every Thursday as UPSTAGE BITZ, but  the weekly compilations of top stories in the Midwest will be eliminated.


President Barack Obama was in Joplin, Mo this week to give the commencement speech for 2012 graduates from Joplin High School graduates Monday.'

Monday night's graduation ceremony was personal, with students reflecting with humor and perspective on their tumultuous school days and one administrator leading them in a chant to show their "Eagle pride."

Obama alluded to students' unique struggles during his own commencement address, which was held on the campus of Missouri Southern State University. He referred, too, to broader challenges facing they their townsfolk to work together, dream big and remain positive in adopting a new slogan of "Remember. Rejoice. And rebuild."
"We need God. We need each other. We are important to each other. And we're stronger together than we are on our own," he said. "That's the spirit that's allowing all of you to rebuild this city. It's the same spirit we need right now to help rebuild America."
The Joplin High graduates are particularly qualified to do so, according to Obama. They have walked the walk -- by pitching in to assist their neighbors, pursuing their education despite the chaos around them and learning from other city citizens and total strangers about what people can do, against the odds, when they work together.
"Some of life's strongest bonds are the ones we forge when everything around us seems broken," the president said. "And even though I expect some of you will ultimately end up leaving Joplin, I'm convinced that Joplin will never leave you."

Last May 22, minutes after 450 seniors from the same Missouri school got their diplomas, a monster twister tore through the community. More than 161 people were killed -- the worst death toll for such a tornado since modern record-keeping began in 1950 -- while dozens of buildings were torn to shreds by winds as strong as 200 mph.

One of them was Joplin High School itself, with the damage so severe that students ended up attending classes in a vacant section of the city's Northpark Mall.


Speaking of graduation commencements, on Sunday, Oprah Winfrey, gave the commencement speech to 550 graduates at the historically black college for women to strive for excellence and make service the focus of their lives. And she told them to remember the sacrifices of generations of ancestors whose blood and hard work paved the way for their accomplishments.
“Never forget that you did not do this by yourself,” Winfrey told the graduates and their families at Spelman’s 125thcommencement ceremony. “You come here today trailing the breath of the ancestors and of the angels.”
At the Georgia International Convention Center, Winfrey cited three keys to success.
First, she urged graduates to know themselves and what they want. “My answer is, I am God’s child,” Winfrey said.
“You must have some kind of vision for your life, even if you don’t have a plan,” she said.
Winfrey also told graduates to find a way to serve and to always do the right thing.
“Do the right thing, even when other people think it may not be,” she said.
Spelman honored her with an honorary doctorate in 1993 and on Sunday bestowed its Community. 


In unrelated Oprah unrelated newz, she appeared on the show that is helping give her network its ratings boost, the No. 1 docu show, “Welcome to Sweetie Pies” that aired Saturday in her network. In the episode, she visits the restaurant to dine with her BFF Gayle King  while in town for the live taping of her Life Class Tour in St. Louis. u

What was hilarious was when  71-year-old Sweetie Pies proprietor Miss Robbie said, “I wanna be like Oprah when I grow up.” She is classic! LOL

Chicago reared and Grammy Award winning platinum rap superstar Kanye West showed off his short film and his celebrity girlfriend, Kim Kardashian in Cannes.

The rapper walked hand in hand with Kim Kardashian at the launch of “Cruel Summer” on Wednesday night.

The couple didn’t stop to talk to media but some of the cast revealed what it was like to work on the art project.

Described as an “immersive seven-screen experience” - “Cruel Summer” is a love story set in the Middle East, and is inspired by West’s new “G.O.O.D” album.

Lebanese actress Razan Jammal says West is “an amazing person”: “To be honest I was really, really surprised, he’s so professional. A little shy, very calm on set, very hard working - I loved working with him.”

The film installation will now be open to the public for two days.

Kimye seems to do no wrong when it comes to self marketing themselves which both thrives on dearly! We are now waiting when Kim K is featured on his next music video. Its inevitable. 

In unrelated Ye newz, the 2012  BET Awards committee announced the nominees for the gala this week and he got the most nominations  with seven.
West and Jay-Z’s — “Niggaz In Paris" and "Otis" — are up for video of the year, Best Collaboration,  and Best Group (he got another nod with Big Sean); Ye got a Video Director nod and Viewers Choice.
Other ILLI MOians that were nominated included Don Cheadle,Terrence Howard and Common(Best Actor); and Keke Palmer (Young Stars Award)

St Louis native actor Jon Hamm made a cameo appearance on the season finale of “Saturday Night Live” last Saturday during the cold opening of the recurring Lawrence Welk Show sketch appearing as Italian crooner Johnny Prosciutto,  to the usual musical stylings of cast members Abby Elliot, Nasim Pedrad, Vanessa Bayer and his “Bridesmaids” co-star  Krsten Wiig  during her swan song show.
Hamm wooed the ladies in the sketch including Wiig's typically  demented and hilarious character. Normally, the tiny-handed Dooneese has to work twice as hard as her pretty sisters to get some attention on the show, but in this sketch she finally gets the Hamm responds by him forcing Wiig’s character’s deform hand inside his mouth.


Chicago native  and legendary singer Chaka Khan made a guest appearance of the Season Finale of “American Idol” Wednesday singing her anthemic song, I’m Every Woman” with the Top 12 Girls on stage.

In unrelated Chaka newz, she  will perform a tribute to the late Whitney Houston at the Apollo Theater’s upcoming gala and
Late Chicgao native TV icon, Soul Train creator Don Cornelius will be honored posthumously.

Chicago native actress Lisa Raye made headlines recently for her interview with  Jet Magazine (that is on newsstands this week) more specifically her candid comments about her former Single Ladies co-star Stacey Dash and her feud with actor Duane Martin
On “Single Ladies” without Stacey Dash
“Believe me I wish things had worked out because I thought Stacey and I were great together. She was my age and we were working it. It was sex-symbol to sex-symbol. But she didn’t want to be there. I was disappointed about that. She had some issues. I’m not sure exactly what those issues were. In the end, she and VH1 made a decision.”
Whether there were really cat fights on the set
“Yes, there was a disagreement over a scene. And it really wasn’t with me. It was with the director. I think it was about 2 or 3AM and we’d been shooting all damn day. Stacey tried to argue with the director about a line. And I’m like: ‘Girl, if you don’t say what the director wants you to say.’ It wasn’t that serious at first, but it went there.
“It’s a bunch of women on the set. We might all be on our d*mn period at any given point. I just wanted us to move forward. Then the argument took on a life of its own. The show decided to use it for publicity. They just ran with it.”
Why she’s no longer friends with Duane Martin
“I introduced him to my ex-husband [former Turks & Caicos Premier Michael Misick], he got buddy-buddy with him and then turned against me. Just recently, this fool Duane up and sold a building he and I bought awhile ago in Los Angeles, without asking…I don’t care if we’re not friends, just don’t try to f**k me in the interim.
“When I heard about him in the middle of Will & Jada’s divorce rumors, I tweeted: sounds familiar. He really ain’t got enough business.”
WORDZ TO THE WHYZ: Now why couldn’t LisaRaye admit to the catfights when they were alleged?She denied it at the time of reports and so did executive producer Queen Latifah).  As far as her former All of Us co-star, Duane Martin, that was a bit foul what he done but there were reported rumors that Martin was in the middle of her marriage with Premier Misick (as were the rumors between Will and Jada), and if one may remember at one of those award shows, Lisa and Duane were presenting and she jokingly called him “Best Supporting Actress.” And he said “Hey, hey, hey!” Hmm, seem like there was some TUDE goin on long before the business fiasco.

NBC will have on its Fall schedule a drama titled, “Chicago Fire” which will feature firefighters battling flames. The Chicago filmed series is produced by Dick Wolf and revolves around the men and women of Chicago Firehouse 51.

East St Louis native and current Chicago resident Willie Lynch Jr was the winner of this year’s Bay Area Black Comedy Competition & Festival held in Oakland.


ST Louis Cardinals  first baseman Lance Berkman (PICTURED)confirmed that he will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his damaged right knee either Thursday or Friday in his hometown of Houston rather than in Vail, Colo.

Berkman reportedly returned home with his family Monday night and scheduled a consultation with a Houston orthopedic .

He suffered a right knee injury after he caught a routine throw from shortstop Rafael Furcal in the second inning Saturday at Dodger Stadium.

An MRI on Monday disclosed tearing of the meniscus and cartilage responsible for cushioning the knee. Berkman, a veteran of four knee operations, estimated he will be sidelined minimum of six weeks following the arthroscopic procedure while admitting that he might require a significantly more extensive procedure.

Also, another player was injured a few days later with Matt Carpenter, who was hurt coming out of the batter's box on a double in the first inning Tuesday. Carpenter looked in discomfort not long after he had swung in the first inning and sent the ball into left field at the game against The  San Diego Padres . He awkwardly turned the corner at first and cruised into second base with an easy double, but he clearly was in pain.

Manager Mike Matheny and a trainer went out to check and, just like that, Carpenter was walking off the field with what the team was calling "right side tightness."

Matheny labeled Carpenter day-to-day,

Carpenter is the fifth player the team has put on the DL this week, following Jon Jay, Allen Craig, Kyle McClellan and Berkman. St. Louis has seven players on the DL altogether.


Besides the headline grabbing Edward Jones Dome renovations negotiations between The St Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke and The St Louis Visitors Commission, on the grid iron, The Rams added depth to their roster Tuesday by signing a pair of veteran free agents, linebacker Mario Haggan and offensive tackle Barry Richardson. Both players arrived in time to watch Tuesday's first OTA practice of the spring and participate in the following sessions.

There was a public hearing Tuesday that brought out supporters and foes of a proposal to move up the closing times for bars, clubs and other businesses in East St. Louis by two hours.
From reports, most of the crowd appeared to side with Mayor Alvin Parks who said he is "100 percent against" the proposal.
The meeting drew more than 100 people to the East St. Louis Municipal Building.

City Councilwoman Emeka Jackson-Hicks reportedly proposed the ordinance that would limit many businesses' hours of operation to between 6 a.m. and 2 a.m. Monday through Thursday and 6 a.m. to 3 a.m. Friday through Sunday.

Businesses excluded from the ordinance would include health care providers, casinos, day cares, nationally franchised businesses, hotels and gas stations.

Residents both in support of and against the ordinance reportedly expressed the need for more police on the streets.

In April, Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.,  an East St Louis native visited East St. Louis and called for an end to late-night liquor sales, which he called "an invitation for more murders, more crime."

U.S. Attorney Stephen Wigginton says East St. Louis has a murder rate equivalent to 109 killings for every 100,000 residents. The national average is five per 100,000.

Parks said the ordinance could be up for vote by the council next month.

Its interesting that there is more focus on closing shop of clubs than on  the closing of various school sin the city based on the number of citizens who attended the hearing. Parks’ bottom line is making money from sales from those businesses so the less hours the less money generated in the city budget.  We think that the city may rally around this issue and may vote to close the clubs early.


Controversial radio personality JC Corcoran who recently was fired at KTRS (550 AM), thinks his days in the St. Louis market might be over after a nearly three-decade run.

Corcoran made a one-day return to the airwaves when he joined Brian McKenna and Jeff Gordon for jock talk recently on KSLG (1380 AM) as he filled in for Rob Godier.

He said he might appear on other sports shows in the next few weeks, but seems pessimistic about remaining in the market long-term.

"We sold our house last Saturday in anticipation of most likely leaving'' he said. "If anyone (locally) has anything to say, I'd encourage them to speak up because all the discussion I am having are from out-of-town stations. There don't seem to be any (decent) opportunities in St. Louis.

" I don't feel I'm in a position that I have to take a tertiary-level position just to remain working in St. Louis. I'm having discussion with some pretty big stations in pretty big cities. Nothing's on the table yet, but I am led to believe there will be soon. If nobody in St. Louis steps forward and offers something, I'm going to go.''

Corcoran said if he leaves, he'd like to go out with a grand finale.

Sweetie Pies Upper Crust had its Soft Opening last weekend located off Grand. According to St Louis American’s Partyline writer Delores Shante she “was thrilled with the whole get-up from the foyer to that fabulous patio! They pulled out all of the stops from a step show to a full-on song and dance and the only bad thing I can say about the whole experience is that my diet is officially ruined.

“The invite said refreshments, but since when is macaroni & cheese a refreshment? I am still full. But back to the event. They have a restaurant, a dessert diner and banquet hall all in one and it is “laid out.”

STL VIPs of from at least three generations were representing –including Miss Robbie, Janae, Lil Charles and the WHOLE family. The only person among the who’s who not there was Tim – who was hard at work at the Mangrove location. Just so you know Tim, EVERYBODY was asking about you."

Why is the novel 50 Shades of Gray so popular? Why is Kris Humpries trying to be a stand up comedian? Why did BET fire “The Game” stars Pooch Hall and Tia Mowry? Why are folk trying to out Raven Symone? Why is Nikki Minaj the only female rapper in the game today? Why is there gonna be a Basketball wives movie? And why are folk in such an outrage now all of a sudden over the fight on the Basketball Wives reunion show?

Why did it seem as though Chris Brown was not wearing any underwear under his jeans while he was performing? Why was the Donna Summer tribute cut short? And why did they choose Natasha Bedingfield to sing the tribute?
