"I am never surprised when attention-seeking people say and do things to get attention, because it's what they do and it is expected. It is unfortunate that she is still searching for significance this late in her life, rather than focusing on the afterlife. Bless her heart."
“Bernie Mac paved the way for a lot of great comedians like myself, and it’s a great time to honor this man. We love Bernie Mac.”
"One minute you're on top of the world, the next, it's all different."
“I don’t believe that Phil Jackson would have used that term if he was doing business with someone else and working with another team or if he was working with anybody in sports that was owning a team that wasn’t African-American and had a group of guys around them that didn’t agree with what they did.

“I said, ‘That’s awesome.’ And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is. And then I thought, ‘Wow, we’ve pretty much reached the pinnacle.’ I’m not quite too sure where we go from here. I’ve done it all, this is it.”
