    If we had a dollar for the number of folks who became famous after appearing on any show a part of the LHH franchise, we'd be rich.

    Earlier this year, the talk show host got into a bit of hot water for saying HBCUs were obsolete. But seeing as many of those students make up her core fan base and two members of her immediate family are alums, we're sure she's had a change of heart.

  8. Snoop Dogg should be thankful for California's Proposition 64:

    Thanks to the passing of Proposition 64, the California Marijuana Legalization Initiative, Snoop can now light up anytime and anywhere he wants.

    Seeing as how the first-lady-to-be outwardly plagiarized words from one of the best first ladies this country has ever seen, we think she owes Mrs. Obama a serious "thank you very much."

  12. Teyana Taylor should be grateful for Kanye West:

    The "Fade" music video instantly became a phenomenon not due to its catchy beat or hook, but all thanks to Teyana Taylor's dancing, body and charisma in the infectious video. After it went viral, she's been booked literally everywhere.

  13. Khloé Kardashian should be thankful for Tristan Thompson:

    Khloé Kardashian has a new man and he's seemed to have been treating her like a queen since they got together. They've reportedly even began the moving process. Is it safe to say he upgraded her life a bit?
