FS Weekend Round Up (June 28th – 31st)

BET PerformanceThis weekend was full of events, Chris Paul re-up’d his contract with the Clippers for 107 million, Melissa McCarthy proved she is a viable movie star with ‘The Heat’ and BET Awards took place in LA.


To be honest, the show was pretty safe and bland as the 2013 Bet Awards commenced where the theme was “Anything Can Happen.” Chris Tucker hosted and the night’s biggest honor going to Charlie Wilson who received a lifetime achievement award at the BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Overall the show was pretty predictable with the most surprising events occurred on twitter and the red carpet. The only people proud of this outfit must’ve been ATL rap group Migo as these three took the song to heart wearing VERSACE! VERSACE! VERSACE! The fits’ were criminally worn by three people DJ Drama, J. Cole, and Brandon T. Jackson (respectively) twitter poked fun at the trio.

chris paulChris Paul Closes Blockbuster Deal Making A Whopping 105 Million.

The biggest free agent of the 2013 off-season was by far Chris Paul. One of the questions that lingered following the Los Angeles Clippers first round exit loss to the Memphis Grizzlies 2 months ago, was whether Chris Paul would be leaving the team.

Initially, with Vinny Del Negro still coaching, we thought (were told) Chris Paul’s tenure with the Clippers would soon be coming to an end; with an imminent pairing in Atlanta with Dwight Howard. Last week, the Clippers acquired coach Doc Rivers in a trade (re-read that) from the Celtics in exchange for a future first-round pick in compensation.

Doc immediately agreed to a deal with the Clippers for 3-years’ worth $21 million, giving Chris Paul incentive to stay put with Blake Griffin in LA. Last year, Blake (The Amare of the bunch) gave the Clippers a future after agreeing a 5-Year extension.

Chris Paul can officially sign the deal on July 10th when free agency signings begin.


Melissa McCarthy Star Power OFFICIALLY PROVEN!

the heatFueled by females, Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock‘s The Heat ended up having all the firepower at the North American box office as their new R-rated comedy crushed Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx‘s big-budget tentpole White House Down. 

From 20th Century Fox, The Heat opened to a rousing $40 million, signaling another major win for McCarthy and her Bridesmaids director Paul Feig. The pic also marks McCarthy’s best opening to date for a lead role — as well as the best opening ever for Bullock and Feig.

Conversely, director Roland Emmerich‘s White House Down debuted to a dismal $25.7 million. The action pic cost a pricey $150 million to produce.
