Bruno Mars wasn’t at the American Music Awards on Sunday night, but he was the big winner with seven awards, including entertainer of the year. Mars also won video of the year and favorite male artist, pop/rock, and favorite album, pop/rock.

“I wish I could be partying with y’all,” said Mars, who appeared in a video.

Also picking up multiple awards were Keith Urban, Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber.

Diana Ross received the lifetime achievement award at the American Music Awards.

Former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama congratulated Ross in a video before the style icon, singer and actress delivered an upbeat medley of her hits. Her performance Sunday included “I’m Coming Out,” ”Take Me Higher” and “The Best Years of My Life.”

She dedicated the performance to her fans, saying “You are everything to me,” and invited her family up on the stage to celebrate the honor, including the awards show host Tracee Ellis Ross.

Kelly Clarkson and Pink opened the American Music Awards with a tribute to first responders with a powerhouse vocal duet of R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts.” Before their performance on Sunday night in Los Angeles, Jamie Foxx stood in front of a group of first responders and said that this year “tested our faith.”

The two pop singers traded vocals on the song while images from recent natural disasters played on screens behind them. They ended the duet with a hug and got a standing ovation.

Does the phrase “You’ll never work in this town again!” Sound familiar to anyone? Well it definitely should to Abel and Ola Osundairo, the Nigerian brothers who were allegedly paid to attack Jussie Smollett. Apparently the brothers are having hard time finding acting gigs since their involvement with the entire scandal came to light. Abel, had actually been signed to a talent agency, but was dropped shortly thereafter.

Does the phrase “You’ll never work in this town again!” Sound familiar to anyone? Well it definitely should to Abel and Ola Osundairo, the Nigerian brothers who were allegedly paid to attack Jussie Smollett. Apparently the brothers are having hard time finding acting gigs since their involvement with the entire scandal came to light. Abel, had actually been signed to a talent agency, but was dropped shortly thereafter.

he men who allegedly “attacked” Jussie Smollett at his behest are feeling the pain in the aftermath of the whole debacle … because their acting careers have taken a major blow.

Sources close to the Osundairo brothers — Abel and Ola — tell TMZ … the 2 have come up empty trying to land an agent in the past several weeks. We’re told they’ve reached out to about 10 of the top agencies in Chicago and none have been interested in signing them.

This especially hurts right now because it’s pilot season in the TV biz, and actors like the bros can’t even get auditions without an agent.

What’s worse is Abel actually HAD signed with the Gray Talent Group about a month before his involvement in the Jussie drama became known, and got dropped shortly afterward.

The reason he was given, according to our sources, was generic and didn’t mention the Smollett case … but it was obvious. We’re told the agency told Abel it couldn’t provide him the opportunities he desired, adding … “parting ways with talented actors like yourself is a difficult decision and not a direct reflection on your character or your abilities.”

Unfortunately for the Osundairos … their fitness biz has tapered off as well. Our sources say while it seemed to be booming about a month ago, many of their potential clients turned out to be feigning interest in getting in shape and were really looking to get details on Jussie’s case.

We really are not surprised The Osundairo Brothers are having a hard time finding work. Jussie’s entire scandal, even though he was acquitted, is still toxic and anyone involved in it is tainted. We will be surprised if they ever get real acting roles.

Too Much? Wendy Williams Advises RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice to Leave Her Husband!

Wendy Williams may have lost her marriage, but she has not lost her opinions, especially when it comes to The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple, Teresa and Joe Giudice! As you may already know the couple has faced their fair share of problems over the last few years with both being incarcerated and now Joe faces deportation after learning he has never been an American citizen.  Many would think Wendy would encourage her to stand by her man, but the talk show host wants Teresa to prepare to move on with her life without Joe.

“If I were Teresa, I wouldn’t even want him home at this point,” she said, adding that she hopes Teresa remains on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. “I would not have him living in my house.”

And when it comes to the couple’s four daughters, Williams said they’re probably better off if their parents are happy.

“I am all about a family staying together,” she said. “But families don’t stay together because of the kids. In fact, sometimes it’s worse for the kids.”

It was revealed on Thursday that Joe is now one step closer to deportation as his appeal against the decision to deport him was denied.

“We are extremely disappointed that the Board of Immigration Appeals has denied Mr. Giudice’s appeal,” James J. Leonard Jr., the Giudice family attorney, told PEOPLE in a statement. “We have filed a stay with the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and will continue to fight to keep Mr. Giudice in the United States, the only country he knows, and reunite him with his wife and four daughters.”

Wendy’s comments may be hitting a little too close to home as she is dealing with her pending divorce from her husband of over 20 years, Kevin Hunter. We would like to see Joe be granted some clemency, at least for his four daughters’ sake. On Wendy’s end she is at least keeping it “business as usual;” still hosting her daytime talk show and even making light of her divorce by referring to herself as a “single woman.”

The spokesman says she is pleading guilty to racketeering conspiracy and racketeering.

Prosecutors have accused her of recruiting sex slaves for Keith Raniere, who co-founded the controversial self-help group Nxivm and its subgroup, DOS, described as an all-female secret society in which women allegedly were forced to be sexually subservient to Raniere.

On Monday, Mack, 36, appeared in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn, where jury selection in her trial was set to begin.

Best known for her years-long role as a young Superman’s friend, Chloe Sullivan, on The WB’s Smallville, Mack was charged last spring with sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy, and forced labor conspiracy.
Allison faces a minimum sentence of fifteen years if convicted on all charges. We have to say we are still in shock over everything she has been involved in. This proves that all sex traffickers are not men, and that no one is truly as they seem. What do you guys think of Allison and her involvement in this scandal?
