The_Judge

A hotshot, take no prisoners lawyer gets called home to handle a family tragedy, only to watch his father’s life quickly start to unravel when he’s accused of murder. That’s the premise of the new Warner Bros. flick, The Judge. An incredibly handsome Robert Downey Jr. (like, really, has he always been this cute?) stars as a big city defense lawyer who’s made a life of defending the guilty, while never looking back. His father, Robert Duvall, is a well-respected small town judge with a tough as nails personality. The two are famously estranged, but now, the judge needs his son. And, thus begins the tension and plotline of the film. Take a look.

The Judge will make you laugh, cry and maybe even question your professional purpose. It’s a great look inside a family –a dysfunctional one, but whose isn’t?– that’s trying to discover the love they lost. I give it 4 out of 5 cauldrons. The Judge opens Friday, October 10th.

Will you go see it?

Paula_Deen

Paula Deen’s comeback tour continues with an assist from Steve Harvey. The comedian/talk show host/radio host/author/I’m running out of slashes runs a mentoring program for young men. He’s tapped Deen to teach cooking skills to the boys who are interested in a culinary career path. Take a look at the announcement.

Isn’t there enough butter and ‘betes in the black community? Do we need Paula teaching the next generation of cooks how to smother lard? I mean, was G Garvin busy? I hear the Neelys have an opening. Anyway, what do you think? Are we still side eyeing Paula or nah?

Aaliyah_and_Alexandra_Shipp

Lifetime dropped the first look at its upcoming controversial Aaliyah biopic. After much hullabaloo about who would star in it, who’d produce it and what shade the characters should be, the network finally has its stars. Alexandra Shipp (I had to Google her, too) flat ironed her hair, tossed it over her eye and put on some Timbs to star as the fallen singer after actress Zendaya Coleman dropped was e-bullied out. The project does not have the blessing of Aaliyah’s family and there were reports the family was blocking Lifetime from using her music. But, somehow, the movie will tell the story of Aaliyah’s rise to fame and her troubled relationship with R. Kelly. Talk show host Wendy Williams is executive producing the TV movie, which premieres on Lifetime November 15th. Here’s a peek…

So,will you watch Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B?

Brew Commentary: No ‘ordinary’ love….

5008_1093986188049_143975_n<–The “I’m getting that Omari peen and ya’ll not” side-eye

It was the thug type threat heard ’round Black Twitter; Actor Omari Hardwick read your cousins for filth for going in on his Queen Jae. Some fans were appalled by her face parts, others, her hue.

Check it:

This got me thinking about how shallow we woman can be. We get upset when a male celebrity picks an ‘exotical’, huffing “typical” under ours breaths, while hard rolling our eyes at the computer screen. However, when a man chooses a mate for other reasons that might not be immediately apparent because of facial arrangement misfortunes, or other oddities, we deem his choice unworthy, UNLESS said broad is a ride or die chick, a la Tiny.  She’s off limits to everyone, immejiately!

ti-and-tiny< –stanky leg love!

So I thought we’d take a walk down Plain Jane Road to give some kudos to dudes who picked their mate for much more and took the heat:

sting-trudie-styler

Sting and Trudie Styler – I mean, they’re like English so I’ll chalk this up to we just don’t see it. Plus doesn’t like the entire country have bad hair and teeth? Well, except Kate Moss…

rg3-wife-elite-daily-800x400
Redskins QB (for now) Robert Griffin III and his wife Becky  (giggles) – well in all fairness, he’s a spicy bamma in his own right – so maybe they cancel each other out?

article-2334808-1A1DB90A000005DC-279_634x650

Hugh Jackman and his wife, Deborrah-Lee Furness – He’s 45, she’s 58. So being OG of the “Janes”, Deborrah-Lee issued this pre-emptive read to you judgy mofos!

Moral of this story; be okay with who YOU picked. In bird speak; “At the end of the day” you lay down with him/her, we do not, so why even justify your selection? Looks fade and in some cases ugly grows, but if you like it, like pre-cray Lauryn Hill and pre-crack D’Angelo sang, Nothing Even Matters…

While Keyshia “Fish Plate” Cole is running around handing out Floyd Mayweathers to love rivals, her ex-boo, Daniel Boobie Gibson is talking about their failed marriage to VLAD TV. Now I’ve always been a big fan of Boobie since the couples’ reality show, Keyshia and Daniel: Family First. He’s a cutie, and has some damn sense, but I really like what he has to say about love and marriage. As far as a youngin’ goes, he gets it!
