E! News must be doing Terrence J good. The sometimes actor/model turned E! News host plopped down $100 Gs to his alma mater–North Carolina A&T State University.

In exchange, the Journalism and Mass Communication dept. declared April 24th will forever be ‘Terrence J Day’ on the Greensboro, North Carolina campus. Cool. Wonder if that includes a master key…

Not sure, but it definitely warranted some encouraging words from the guest of honor for the soon-to-be graduating class: “don’t follow your dreams, chase them.”

On Terrence’s Instagram page, he shared the $100,000 endowment check was payback for the school taking a chance on him when no one else did. In four years, he graduated with a 3.6 GPA, became student body president and Omega Psi Phi fraternity member.

This is step 1 in doing more, not just at my school but for communities around the country where young people feel forgotten and unheard. I don’t have all the answers-FAR from it. But my goal is to inspire others to give back-in any way-just as I’ve been inspired to do the same.

When I was 17 the world felt cold and lonely. But I didn’t need handcuffs- I needed a hand. Thanks to all that have helped me on my path.

Amen. Amen. Amen. Let the church say amen.

In keeping with the empowering youth theme, Real Housewives of Atlanta star and radio personality Claudia Jordan visited North Clayton Middle School yesterday to talk about the dangers of bullying.

Interesting topic given the antics that go on on her reality show, or even the reunion for that matter.

Nonetheless, this is what the newest housewife said at the #BullyingIsNotHot event hosted by her radio station:

“I want to encourage you all to be responsible. You never know how your one comment may push someone over the top. You never know what someone is going through.”

Very true. Let’s hope the message is echoed to the other housewives because actions always speak louder than words. And you know kids watch those actions like an on-duty crossing guard observes cars.

Terrence J took a break from being behind the E! news desk to spread some cheer to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County yesterday.

The actor/TV host tagged along with his work buddy Catt Sadler to takeover Seacrest Studios within the hospital. They hung out with some patients, took selfies and had them listen in as the duo took to the airwaves.

Sounds kind of weird that a media room that isn’t made up of a basic TV and radio would be inside a hospital. Well, that’s the point. Media extraordinaire Ryan-when-does-he-sleep-Seacrest used his foundation to launch a radio and TV studio, two years ago, so kids would be motivated to get out of bed.

What better motivation is there then seeing Star-Lord aka Chris Pratt–who visited the hospital in January–roaming the halls. Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus and Kylie and Kendall Jenner also made surprise visits earlier this year.

And for the kids unable to join in on the fun can watch via closed-circuit TV in their room, and make song requests from their hospital phone.

Not a bad setup for a hospital…but sadly those privileges are only for the West Coast crew. We’ll have to stick to basic cable (fees are collected daily) on the East side.¬†Ain’t nothing like O.C. living…Callllifffffforrrrnniiiaaaa. Who remembers that theme song? Sadly, I do.
