The Grammys might make it all the way through without being interrupted by Kanye West, because TMZ says he's boycotting the show, along with Drake and Justin Bieber. But there's no official word from any of them. Kanye previously said he wouldn't show if the Grammys failed to nominate Frank Ocean and he wasn't nominated, but that's because he intentionally decided not to submit his album for consideration. Kanye has eight nominations, and he's received 21 Grammys in the past, but according to TMZ, he's upset that he's always lost when he's gone head-to-head against a white singer. Which isn't true. He's beat Eminem a couple times, and he's also triumphed over the Beastie Boys, Justin Timberlake, and even the super white guys in The Lonely Island. Maybe he means when he's up in the NON-rap categories. But even then, he's been nominated for Best Album three times, and he's never won. But two of his three losses were to black guys - Ray Charles and Herbie Hancock. The other one was to U2. So who knows. Justin has four nominations, but apparently he thinks the Grammys are irrelevant, and Drake has eight, but he booked tour dates in Europe that weekend.

Eva Longoria will guest star on several episodes of "Empire". She’ll play Charlotte Frost, the formidable director of the all-powerful state gaming commission who has the power to make-or-break it for Lucious, played by Terrence Howard.

After another night of dramatics on "The Bachelor," ABC is apparently stands for ”Always Broadcasting Corinne.” Bachelor Nick Viall went on a two-for-one date with Corinne and Taylor. It ended with a cliffhanger. Nick and Corinne were having a candle-lit dinner when Taylor waltzed in unannounced. She must tell him her truth. Taylor cannot believe Nick still has a thing for Corinne. She admitted that if Nick chooses Corinne, it could only mean Nick thinks with the wrong head. We’ll have to wait until next week to learn who earns the rose. Thankfully, ABC avoided the awkwardness of including Rachel on the plantation group date. Instead, she was treated to a one-on-one date with Nick in New Orleans. She got the rose and one-step closer to a hometown date. 

Betsy Lavin is from Williamsburg – she’s a mommy of 3 and she has multiple sclerosis. But Betsy says she’s not sick when she’s in the pool. Doctors diagnosed her with multiple sclerosis in 2009. Over the last 7 years, Besty says the disease has crippled her many times, but in January, she set a goal to swim one million yards in one year. She’s the swim coach at the Williamsburg Aquatic Club by the way. But she said her son asked her husband if mommy was gonna die. Besty told her son, “Would I be able to swim one million yards if I were going to die?” He said, “I guess not.” Early summer, her condition worsened, but she eventually rebounded and even though she got really bad vertigo and wasn’t able to drive, she spent many days in the pool for more than two hours. Betsy said, “I am certainly surprising my neurologists. He said, ‘I don’t know how you are doing so well. Just keep swimming.'” She says she plans on taking her doctor’s advice.
