Tyler_Perry_OWN

Oprah Winfrey’s OWN is another step closer to becoming the Tyler Perry Network, thanks to TP’s latest series. “If Loving You Is Wrong” (written, produced and catered by Perry) premieres on OWN September 9th and will be his fourth on the network. The drama follows a middle class group of friends who look “normal” but…

Secrets, lies and deception lie behind closed doors for a group of husbands and wives that live and love on the same street.

TP has three other shows produced for OWN, “The Haves And The Have Nots,” “For Better or Worse” and “Love Thy Neighbor,” which I have never seen. #noshade #maybeso… Here’s a peek at “If Loving You Is Wrong.”

So, will ya watch?

NWA casting

The casting is underway for the minor players in the NWA biopic, Straight Outta Compton, and let’s just say the casting call has a way with words… a real racisty way with words.

In a series of posts (both of which have since been deleted from Facebook), Sande Alessi Casting posted the kinds of actors they’re looking for, from “black and thuggy” to “poor” black girls. I mean, we know this film has hood roots and all, but there’s a way to word things without “wording” things. Nahmean?

Bloods_casting_call

A second casting call asked for women, ranking them from A-to-D, with very specific classifications based on skin tone.

SAG OR NON UNION CASTING NOTICE FOR FEMALES-ALL ETHNICITIES- from the late 80′s. Shoots on “Straight Outta Compton”. Shoot date TBD. We are pulling photos for the director of featured extras. VERY IMPORTANT – You MUST live in the Los Angeles area (Orange County is fine too) to work on this show. DO NOT SUBMIT if you live out of the area. Nobody is going to be flying into LA to do extra work on this show – and don’t tell me you are willing to fly in.

Brew Review: Moisturize Your Situation with Yu-Be

Comments Off

Yu-Be_Collage

Keeping my situation moisturized is a top priority for me, especially in the summer when more of my skin is exposed. I’m usually a butter and oil potion lover but looking like you’re being basted in exotic oils is not cute in 90 degree weather. You wind up cooking your skin in all that grease. I needed a new option to keep the ash away, so I was pleasantly surprised by a nearly 60-year old product called Yu-Be that moisturized without being sticky, greasy or “too much” for summer use. Hop on over to my beauty review at Beautiful Brown Girls to read more about how this worked for me. And enter below to get your own!

Brew Bits: Apollo Nida is Going Back to the Pokey

"A Mother's Love" Opening Night

Phaedra Parks better brush up on her Sip N’ Send Off planning because her hubby is going back to his home away from home. Today, a Georgia judge sentenced Apollo Nida to 8 years in prison and 5 years of supervised release. He actually got off light since he was facing 30 years behind bars (*cough… he cooperated… cough cough*). All of this stemmed from Apollo’s conspiracy to commit bank fraud charges earlier this year. Apollo allegedly made up fake collection companies to access credit card info and that’s a no-no. Phaedra better sell some more donkey booty DVDs, tasers and tacky funeral packages since Apollo also owes $4.5 million in restitution. How soon before the “Phaedra: Single in the City” spinoff, Andy Cohen?

Bridal Shower Boo Boo

Comments Off

Posted by Fleur Delacour | Posted on 07-08-2014

bridal-shower-invites[1]-291620
I just received the biggest insult today; an Evite to a bridal shower. Why would this innocent gesture itch my anus, you ask? Because I don’t recall getting ANY save the dates or an invitation to the actually wedding! Call me old school but this is beyond de tackay! I would have preferred the Evite to read “cattle call for gifts” because that’s exactly what this trick thought. This e-stank, which wasn’t even Paperless post, is the equivalent to a Hollywood ‘couch’ audition with a gross, sweaty movie ‘director/producer’ where I leave without my dignity for role that I’ll never get; it’s like a cold pop tart when I ordered a warmed Danish; it’s like fake dreads. Okay, I might be going overboard, but she can stuff her cucumber sandwiches.  So when did this become a thing?
