‘True Entertainment‘s ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ scored a fresh dose of promo this week, when cast member Phaedra Parks touched down at ‘Good Day Atlanta’ to endorse her book…’Secrets of a Southern Belle.’

While there, the author addressed the show’s current season and the intentional recycling of story lines centred around her more ‘lax’ co-stars, who she believes depend on past dramas to keep their audience entertained.

Her estimation below!



Monday May 5th.

For fans of hit VH1 series ‘Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’, the above marks the spot for its season 3 premiere date, returning to screens with what reliable tells us will be its most explosive season to date!

As the unforgettable “Clair Huxtable”, veteran actress Phylicia Rashad delivered no shortage of “keeping it real.”

However, as a recent interview with Huffington Post reveals, such ability is certainly not limited to “The Cosby Show” character.  On promo tour for her new film Frankie & Alice, in U.S. theaters nationwide and also starring Halle Berry, Rashad was quizzed on her thoughts of today’s sitcoms in comparison to “Cosby.”

Needless to say, she didn’t hold back.  Read her thoughts on this and her current relationship with the original Cosby cast below:



Season three of Kerry Washington‘s ‘Scandal’ has cemented the show as a bonafide smash. Indeed, from its ratings to its social media impact, the political drama appears to be the gift that keeps giving – to both fans and host network ABC.

And with the season’s climax fast approaching, it appears the series looks set to live up to that billing and then some.

Darby Stanchfield, who plays “gladiator” Abby (pictured above, left), spoke to Yahoo this week about what viewers can expect from show’s upcoming finale.

The last time Toni Braxton and Oprah Winfrey‘s names hit the headlines together it was due to the singer’s intriguing account of when the mogul chastised her during her talk-show days.

Fast forward a few months and it appears all is water under the bridge. For, it has been announced that Braxton is gearing up to star in a biopic on Winfrey’s OWN Network.

The divas of Devious Maids strut back onto the small screen on April 20th.

Created by Desperate Housewives maestro Marc Cherry, the show – which is executive produced by by Eva Longoria, was a run-away hit for Lifetime upon its debut last Summer.

Renewed for another 12-episode run, season two promises to be be just as drama-filled.

‘Scandal’ never looked so good!

The hit ABC drama, which is fronted by the award-winning actress Kerry Washington, has charged back onto the small screen for season three.

We’re already hooked, and by the looks of this episode 17 teaser, our Thursday night obsession with Olivia Pope and co will only grow stronger.



There are many ways to “win” and actress Lupita Nyong’o seems destined to tick them all.

Despite airing its final episode more than 15 years ago, ‘Sister Sister’ remains one of the most loved and lauded sitcoms of all time.

From the antics of leads Tia and Tamera Mowry, to the laughs served up by supporting characters Lisa, Ray, and of course Roger, the show set a precedent few have been able to rival.

Still, with both Mowry sisters having blossomed into womanhood and enjoying success in their solo endeavours, a reboot seemed somewhat far-fetched.

Not anymore.

During an interview to promote new show Instant Mom, Tia revealed that she wants to revisit the twins’ on-screen story, going as far as to relay the direction she’d want it to take.

Tomorrow brings with it the US debut of Halle Berry‘s critically acclaimed movie ‘Frankie & Alice’.

The film, which was originally released in Canada alone back in 2010, re-tells the narrative of Frankie – an American go-go dancer with a mental disorder. Inspired by a true-life story, the movie relays her struggles to remain her true self while fighting against two alter egos: a seven-year-old child named “Genius” and a Southern white racist  “Alice.”

In building on the picture’s buzz, Berry sat down with Extra to discuss the role, as well as motherhood, and her upcoming TV show ‘Extant’ (directed by Steven Spielberg).

Peep the interview below, where the trailer for ‘Frankie & Alice’ also awaits…



While the likes of Emma Johnson continue to warn women of the danger that is male dependency, it would seem ‘Basketball Wives’ star Evelyn Lozada is now being painted as the poster-child for women who choose not to follow the writer’s advice.

For, after announcing her engagement to Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford, the star- formerly engaged/married to athletes Antoine Walker and Chad Johnson– now finds herself being billed a financial leech by many a Pop culture spectator.

Their criticism of her?

Her seemingly strategic effort to stay financially afloat by “trapping” sports stars with marriage and/or babies, whom said athletes are legally obliged to provide for.

Press play to hear what Power 105.1’s ‘The Breakfast Club’ had to say on the matter below!
