It looks like Snoop Dogg's reality show, Snoop Dogg's Fatherhood, is about to get a new cast member.
The show which brings fans into Snoop's everyday life with wife Shante, their two sons 13-year-old Corde and 10-year-old Cordell, and their 8-year-old daughter Cori, might feature another family member--Snoop's illegitimate son, 9-year-old Julian Corrie Brodus.
According to Star Magazine, Julian reveals he hasn't seen his father for five years and now he wants to play a big part in Snoop's life, and appear on his TV show.
"I don't want to be an actor, I want to be a baseball player. But I want to be on the show to get to know my family." Said the 9-year-old.
Reports say Snoop paid regular visits as well as child support until 2003, which caused Julians mother, Laurie Holmond, to take him [Snoop] to court to prove he was the biological father.
"I asked him to start seeing Julian again. He sounded sincere but has yet to come by... Calvin needs to acknowledge him." Said the mother

It’s been created, but it’s not recorded," Usher explained to the newspaper. "And as long as Michael is open to it, hey, anything goes.”
The track would be featured on Usher's upcoming album, which he says will be out early next year.
“I’ve been diligently working on creating a masterpiece," he said of the project. "It’s going to be out first or maybe the second quarter. I see the second quarter of next year. And there will be a video and single out at the top of the year. … I think [Atlanta producer] Polow Da Don is going to have the first one. I think that’s going to be the single 'Love In The Club.'”
Meanwhile, the home front has changed drastically for the Broadway performer, who is spending his first holiday season as both a husband and father.
“I’m really like super dad. Really. I really cook for the family," he said. "Now I basically do chicken and broccoli and steamed vegetables, because I’m on this diet. But believe me, I can fry some chicken too … I really clean up. I walk the dog, myself. I burp the baby. I change the diapers. I trim the tree. I’m about to get the things for the tree after this because it’s bare. … I’m super dad. And it’s only begun.”
The artist says he and wife Tameka are still figuring out how to go about releasing the first baby picture of little Usher V. In the meantime, Usher IV says he'll continue to snap his own photos of the baby.
“I’ve become an instant photographer, developing them and everything,” he says.

Authorities have charged two women and a man with a weekend attack on three North Carolina football players, which police said was motivated by robbery and included the sexual assault of at least two players.
Police said the players were attacked early Sunday at their off-campus apartment. All three were bound with tape, and one of those charged threatened the players with a knife. None of the players required medical attention, police said.
Authorities charged Monique Jenice Taylor, 28, Tnika Monta Washington, 29, and Michael Troy Lewis, 32, with three counts of kidnapping, three counts of conspiracy to commit a felony and one count of resisting arrest.
Taylor and Washington also are charged with one count of first-degree sexual offense. Lewis is also charged with robbery, possession of stolen goods and assault on government officials.
Glenn Gerding, an attorney for Taylor, said he didn't want to discuss details of the case outside of court.
"I'm sure once everything comes out in court, we'll be able to establish her innocence," Gerding told The Associated Press.
Prosecutors said the players and the accused went to the victims' apartment after meeting at a downtown bar. [continue]

A judge has denied a request by Remy Ma, accused of shooting an acquaintance in July over missing money, to travel to Europe for a five-country concert tour.
Ivan Fisher, lawyer for the 26-year-old rapper, told the judge his client, whose real name is Remy Smith, needs the tour to earn money. Since her arrest, Fisher said, Smith has been unable to get sufficient U.S. bookings, and a proposed recording contract has been put on hold.
Fisher told the judge the tour, which was to begin in Paris on Dec. 31, would net Smith up to $40,000, "which she very much needs."
Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Rena Uviller said Thursday she wouldn't allow Smith to leave the U.S. because of the serious charges facing her. [source]

In an effort to "reach those suburban white kids like Kanye did," rapper Lil Wayne has announced that he will be working with shiny-faced pretty boy Zac Efron on an upcoming album titled High School Musical 2: Non-Stop Dance Party. More importantly, Efron has also used the opportunity to pretend he's black enough to sling around the n-word.
According to a reporter from the OC Weekly, the unlikely tandem had the following interaction at Wayne's brand-new Miami mansion (where, the piece also informs us, a Juicy Fruit-dispensing bathroom attendant is on the premises full-time):
"'What's up, my nigga?' Efron says, giving Wayne a pound, a hug, and then, to my astonishment, a full-on kiss, reminiscent of the one Wayne famously gave his surrogate father Baby last year."
The hello kiss in question led many to believe that Wayne, who also has a faux-bronze nude statue of himself at the house, is a homosexual. Luckily, Efron has never been the subject of similar rumors! [source via Dlisted]
