Published December 28, 2007

Posted Dec. 28, 2007 -- Sean "Diddy" Combs will get the official taste of stardom during his upcoming Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on Jan. 11, reports

The hip hop mogul plans to have his whole family out to see him get his star.

"I'm from Harlem New York, so to get a star in Hollywood is just mind-blowing," Diddy said.  "You can get a lot of things but when you see those stars on the ground...that's something I can't even say I dreamed of and to be getting recognized for it is definitely something I'm gonna have my whole family out there for,"  said Combs, who will soon reprise his role as Walter Lee Younger in the ABC telefil, "A Raisin in the Sun."

TV Judge Leaves the Courtroom

Judge Glenda Hatchet has left her syndicated "Judge Hatchett" show after eight an eight-year run, but that hasn't stopped producers from moving forward with a new season.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the popular court show will return for an additional season under the title "Best of Judge Hatchett," which will feature repeat broadcasts grouped by themes – such as "celebrity interventions" or "creative sentencing." 

A rep for Sony Pictures Television said the show produced its last original episode in September. An industry consultant says fans would probably fail to notice any changes.  

"I don't think any viewer will initially know the difference between a program that was produced two weeks ago and one that was produced two years ago," Bill Carroll, vp and director of programming at consulting firm Katz Television Group, told the trade paper.

Quick Cut

Sources say Eddie Murphy and Tracey Edmonds will be married in a small, private wedding in the South Pacific before the New Year.
