The world lost its ‘Black Panther’ in August when the incomparable Chadwick Boseman died after a private four-year battle with colon cancer. He was just 43.

Beyond the immeasurable devastation felt by the star’s family, friends, and fans, the loss also cast a cloud of doubt and debate over the the forthcoming ‘Black Panther’ sequel.

As reported, Boseman had been in preparations to return in the title role at the time of his passing.

Some mulled the possibility of Marvel Studios using digital technology to include his character of T’Challa, as has been the case with other films faced with such predicaments.

However, the studio’s Executive Vice President has made clear that won’t be the case.

Almost 25-years after its release, ‘Waiting To Exhale’ made headlines again this week when actress Loretta Devine revealed that a revival of sorts was in the works.

And while the news excited some, others weren’t as welcoming of what appeared to be a “sequel” to the original. Especially given how coveted the classic film is and the tragic absence of Whitney Houston, who died in 2012.

Well, Terry McMillan – the revered writer of the like-titled novel that formed the basis of the movie – has provided clarity.

December 22 will mark the 25th anniversary of the release of ‘Waiting to Exhale‘ – the groundbreaking film adaptation of Terry McMillan‘s equally game-changing novel about the stories of four Black female friends balancing romance, parenthood, and more with the demands of their respective professions.

With its main characters portrayed by GRAMMY & EMMY Award-winning Pop icon Whitney Houston, Academy & EMMY Award nominee Angela Bassett, EMMY Award winner Loretta Devine, and Lela Rochon, ‘Exhale’ grossed over 5 times its budget at box offices and broke boundaries for the way women of color were portrayed in movies along the way.

As calls for such positive media representation is at its highest now, Tamron Hall – who welcomed Devine and her ‘Spell’ co-star Omari Hardwick as guests on her top-rated talk show last week – quizzed the actress on if the highly celebrated flick will be among many getting a reboot in the near future.

Devine’s answer was a shocker.  Details inside:

‘Virgo Tendencies’ singer KeKe Palmer has a tendency of ruffling feathers with her outspoken nature on social media, a habit that’s earned her harsh criticism over the years.

As such, it came to the surprise of few when the triple threat diva was the center of controversy for a now-deleted tweet that saw her suggest EBT card purchases be limited to healthy foods.

Though she eventually removed the post from her Twitter profile, its damage was done quickly as it incited a number of fiery comments – many asserting Palmer’s recommendation (given her assumed financial advantages) was insensitive to people who rely on the governmentally-assisted food program.

Eventually tired of the hoopla, KeKe returned to social media to offer a lengthy clapback.
