Happy Hump Day! Much to share today including “Today” co-anchor Tamron Hall’s natural hair care tips, Nia Long dishing on her new TV series “The Divide” with the ladies of “The Talk” and the latest drama surrounding Lifetime’s Whitney Houston biopic. Plus, there’s my watchlist and what’s hot (Zoe Saldana’s pregnant!) and not (the teen missionary who allegedly molested Kenyan children). Enjoy!

We’re one day away from the start of the weekend and I’ve got a couple of things for you to chew on: My thoughts on Whitney Houston’s vocals not being included in her Lifetime TV biopic, why I think Bobby Brown was the ‘ish back in the day and the failed Tupac Shakur musical. Plus, there’s my watchlist and what’s hot (The Falcon as the new Captain America) and not (The KKK’s latest recruiting efforts). Enjoy!
The Emmy nominations were announced last week and as usual, the internet reacted accordingly. TV critics, bloggers, and the general denizens of pop culture took to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and every other social media outlet to let the world know what they thought of the newly announced nominees—but the biggest focus, as expected, was who got snubbed. I am here to add to that focus.
Greetings and Salutations! Here’s your daily dose of black entertainment news to get your week started: YaYa DaCosta Alafia is prepping to channel Whitney Houston in a Lifetime biopic, Lifestyle guru B. Smith shared that she has Alzheimer’s and Audra McDonald makes Tony Award history. Plus, there’s my watchlist and what’s hot (Lil’ Kim is a mommy) and not (the fatal pileup that injured Tracy Morgan).
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.
Oprah didn’t get an Oscar nod for her work in “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” but maybe she’ll take home a Tony instead. The media maven’s hoping to make her Broadway debut in “Night Mother,” according to The New York Times.
It seems my initial guesses were correct.
We’re just about at the finish line! “American Horror Story: Coven’s” final episode airs next week and by then a new supreme should be named.
Watching “American Horror Story: Coven” I can’t help but think that these are the saddest bunch of witches I’ve ever seen. If you’ve been following my posts about “Coven,” then you’re familiar with my constantly asking, “What type of witches are these?”
I don’t think Chalky White is really about that life. Nope. Too bad he didn’t realize this before his oldest daughter, Maybelle, was fatally shot. Pretty sure many viewers didn’t see that one coming. Sunday’s “Boardwalk Empire” season 4 finale was full of surprises like this.
