TV Icon Says Wu-Tang Forever, Iggy Azalea Reacts To 1 Mil Date Rejection, Kanye Gives Paps Happy Pass?

Working Wednesday. We’re all still putting in work, so why not take a quick break and peep one of television’s biggest icons showing love to the Wu-Tang Clan? Someone who didn’t show love recently was Iggy Azalea after she ditched a million dollar date offer and she’s not regretting it? One thing Kanye West won’t regret is proposing to Kim Kardashian, but could this be a new day for him and the nagging paparazzi? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Regis Loves The Kids

Is Regis Philbin going to be the newest member of the Wu-Tang Clan? It’s not likely, but we’ve seen strangers things go down with the Clan. It looks like no matter what, he is down to support the Wu crew and is going beyond a simple verbal co-sign. Complex is all over this:

Recently, to celebrate the upcoming 20th anniversary of Wu-Tang Clan’s Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), a super dope collection of Wu Wear was released by the Staten Island hip-hop crew. While most of the gear sold out the same day it dropped, OG #influencer Regis Philbin was able to get his hands on a highly-coveted T-shirt straight from the hands of Raekwon.

Ghostface Killah and Raekwon swung through the Fox Sports talk show “Crowd Goes Wild” to talk all things Wu, sports, and hip-hop. And they made sure to bring gifts to offer before the altar of Regis, even though he introduced them as “Kaewon and Ghostface Killah.”

After the taping of the show, Regis put on the tee that depicts the art that accompanied the very first Wu-Tang single, “Protect Ya Neck”/”After The Laughter Comes Tears” from 1992. Regis himself said that, even though he looks like a Dean Martin kinda guy, when he wants to blow off some steam, “I get in my car, I turn on the 8-track, I put on a little Wu-Tang.” Now he’s properly laced to go along with breaking his neck and throwing up the Wu symbol while thumping 36 Chambers. (Complex)

Is there anything more promising than Regis promoting Wu-Tang Clan? It might actually help their overall record sales when that elusive reunion album finally comes out and they start doing some serious reunion touring. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Short & Sweet

It’s not the biggest response but it’s going to have to do for today. It looks like Iggy Azalea has acknowledged reports that she turned down a billionaire when asked to go on a pretty expensive date. She doesn’t exactly confirm the reports are true but she does let out a laugh at them. Iggy Azalea’s Twitter has the evidence:

Ha ha. (Iggy Azalea’s Twitter)

Is there any chance Iggy could have a change of heart? When you have 2 Chainz wanting to sleep with you and you’re touring with Beyoncé, maybe one million dollars doesn’t sound as tempting as it would have a year ago? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. A New Ye

Is Kanye West a changed man after proposing to Kim Kardashian? For the paparazzi’s sake, he just might be. It looks like Kanye’s giving photographers a lot of passes these days even when being pounded by them following his marriage proposal. TMZ has the shot:

Kanye West strolled into his hotel this afternoon in San Francisco … just hours after proposing to baby mama Kim Kardashian — and the guy looked REALLY HAPPY!

West was in such a great mood all day today. In fact, the rap star even threw out a peace sign to the photogs who were snapping his pic — it’s almost like he got laid last night or something.

Congrats pal … on the engagement (and on the getting laid thing). (TMZ)

With a new daughter, Kim Kardashian accepting his proposal and Jimmy Kimmel back as a good friend, is there any reason why Kanye “should” be angry or upset? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
