The TV Guide
After I ran my 5K race in Hollywood yesterday morning, I spent much of my afternoon at home resting up for the rest of my day head. In the early evening, I made my way to the Arclight for a showing of the film Dallas Buyers Club and then later in the night, I made my way to the Fonda Theater to see Johnny Marr (of The Smiths) live in concert. The movie was excellent as was the concert so I had a really fun day full of awesome entertainment. More »
But Was He Lip-Synching?
Earlier today we got to check out footage of [what appeared to be] an adorably pregs Kerry Washington hosting last night’s episodes of Saturday Night Live. Eminem also hit the stage last night to perform two of the singles from his upcoming album, Berzerk and Survival. The legendary Rick Rubin joined him on stage (as did Skylar Grey), and everything felt very throwback, which was kind of cool. Unfortunately, there’s been some talk about whether or not Eminem was lip-synching during his performance. Interestingly enough, NBC does not have video of the performance, and some other vids have been taken down recently, leaving us with just a 30-second clip. Peep the video above for more!

Oh Yeah... She Is Sooo Pregs!!!
OMG, our girl is really, for real pregnant right now! Y’all. Last night Kerry Washington hosted Saturday Night Live and I barely paid attention to the sketches, I was so busy staring at her (currently unconfirmed) baby bump. LMAO! I cannot believe we were pregnancy buddies for, like, two seconds! Check out the video above for her opening monologue and click inside for more! Saturday Night Live has come under some criticism for having no black women in their cast, so they decided to rectify that by getting Kerry to play Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Beyoncé. They also got Al Sharpton… LMAO. Click inside for more! Kerry is pregs!!! Oh, and you have to watch the What Does The Fox Say? parody, titled My Girl. It’s awesome.
I Am So All About This
A little while back we heard that a biopic about the life and times of late, great rapper Tupac Shakur was in the works. With Tupac‘s mother Afeni Shakur on board with the project, I think we can expect good things. And now we have some more news to get excited about. Michael B. Jordan– who is awesome– apparently auditioned for the role. This means 1.) PITNBr Megan totally called it, and 2.) Michael B. Jordan might be playing Tupac?! Click inside for more!
This Looks Awesome
A little while back we got our first look at Labor Day, a new film from Up In The Air director Jason Reitman. As y’all know, Kate Winslet is one of my faves, so I am definitely psyched to see her team up with Josh Brolin in this escaped-convict/romance drama. This first trailer looks amazing– kind of has that Ain’t Them Bodies Saints feel, which is definitely a good thing. Peep the video for more!
Labor Day opens in limited release on Christmas Day.
Earlier this week we got to see the first batch of Saturday Night Live promo videos for this weekend’s episode which will feature actress Kerry Washington as host. Today we get to see new promo videos that feature Kerry and this week’s musical guest Eminem. For the most part, Em plays the stoic, stone-faced straight man as Kerry cracks wise but … make sure you watch the video to the end for a bit of a payoff :) SNL will air LIVE from New York tomorrow night at 11:35 PM ET.
LOVE This Show!
So let me just say that I really do not watch daytime television all like that, and definitely don’t keep up with the talk shows, but OMG I am obsessed with this show! The Real was a talk show featuring Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai and Tamera Mowry-Housley that had a trial run over the summer and I was really, really hoping it would get picked up for a full season. It’s honestly such a good show, and I’m so psyched to learn that Fox and BET have picked it up. If you missed it, you can watch the pilot episode in full above. These women were so hilarious and–honestly– so real with each other and the audience, I watched every single episode. They lit’rally have everything I would have on my own talk show– hella food, hella hot guys, free stuff, and a little Mommy talk and social commentary in between. Love it! Peep the video for more!
The Real will premiere its full season in the fall of 2014.
Throwback Thursday Says Don't Be Scurred...
It’s Hallowe’en bitches!!! Why am I so psyched? Well for one, it’s baby Josev‘s first Hallowe’en and his brother picked out the cutest little Batman onesie EVER that I cannot wait to put on him (expect some major Instagramming in a few). And I’m psyched because I love any excuse to listen to the Geto Boys‘ My Mind Playing Tricks On Me. Which is what we’re getting ready to do. It’s Throwback Thursday and I thought it’d be fun if we relived and re-lurved a few of the dopest, creepiest, Hallowe’en-theme-iest videos out there. So click inside and get amped for Hallowe’en 2013!
"My attorney is in the process of demanding a retraction"
Last week VH1 aired the much-anticipated biopic film CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story which tells the tale of the rise to fame of R&B pop group TLC from the perspective of the surviving members of the group Tionne T-Boz Watkins and Rozonda Chilli Thomas. In the biopic film, TLC‘s former manager Perri Pebbles Reid got DRAGGGGGGED like a mofo as she was portrayed as a greedy, unkind mentor. It’s taken some time but Pebbles has finally issued a statement regarding CrazySexyCool and, unsurprisingly, she is not pleased with the way she is portrayed in the film. Click below to read the full text of Pebbles‘s official statement and find out what she has to say about her portrayal in the biopic film. More »
And they did a damn good job, too
Last season, the pop group Fifth Harmony failed to win The X Factor here in the US but they managed to eke out a fairly successful career in music (thus far) anyways. This week the girls performed a brilliant cover of the Spice Girls smash hit Wannabe and as you can see in the video embedded above, they more than did the song justice. The video quality isn’t great but the sound is good enough to show how Spicy Fifth Harmony can be :) This is a great video, please enjoy.
