Here’s what’s cooking today: Katt Williams, officially out of retirement, will tape an HBO comedy special and Shonda Rhimes sets the record straight about recasting Harrison Wright on “Scandal.” Plus, there’s my watchlist and what’s hot (Michelle Obama’s latest tweet) and not (Jet magazine folding print edition). Enjoy!
I always say everything happens for a reason. Seems that Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s hateful remarks could help build wealth in the black community. Both Oprah Winfrey and Floyd Mayweather have expressed interest in purchasing the LA Clippers. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams explains where things stand for her following […]
It’s the weekend and I have lots to share: My thoughts on the “Scandal” season 3 finale, “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes visits “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and my watchlist (“Orphan Black” returns!) plus what’s hot (Idris Elba and girlfriend welcome a new son) and not (Columbus Short’s recent radio interview). Enjoy!
Tell me there’s something in the water because there’s no excuse for the entertainment foolishness I’m sharing with you today. “Scandal” star Columbus Short apparently lost his damn mind, a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star gets booked on assault charges and a rapper cuts of his penis and attempts suicide. I can’t make this stuff […]
Lots of chattering going on today about black entertainment news. The good, the bad and the ugly includes “Scandal” star Columbus Short’s arrest, “The Real” getting a return date and a planned novel centered around the “Gone with the Wind” Mammy character. Get the deets below.
There’s loads to talk about today, dearies, including our favorite catwalk goddess offering her opinion about the fashion bible’s cover models, one of Olivia Pope’s gladiators losing his cool and the controversial way Nick Cannon’s promoting his upcoming CD. Keep reading for more details.
This week’s “Scandal” showed that, like the rest of us, Olivia Pope has seen “The Notebook.” It also highlights one of the show’s dominant themes: the fantasy of an idealized “Cosby Show” domesticity, which none of the characters have ever achieved. Every time one of them gets close, he or she consciously or unconsciously does […]
Olivia Pope’s mother made her onscreen debut during last night’s “Scandal” episode! She appeared, as expected, during a flashback scene where she said goodbye to a then-12-year-old Liv for the last time (so, we think…LOL—it’s “Scandal.”)
This week’s “Scandal” finally introduced Olivia’s mother played by Khandi Alexander, who no one anticipated would be cast in the pivotal role. She said about three words, in a flashback. The show is still pretending that she is dead, instead of in hiding from B613 or running a small island nation. Also, Kerry Washington officially looks […]
This week’s episode of “Scandal,” “More Cattle Less Bull,” seemingly explained Operation Remington. Fitz’s secret mission turned out to be, like everything else Fitz does, all about Olivia. Our heroine kept busy representing his potential presidential rival and, most importantly, wearing her most fabulous dress yet.
