Sometimes films get repetitive. There are moments when you feel as though you have seen every story line any drama has to offer, and then you are hit with a film that makes you rethink all of that. You walk away feeling heated, flushed, and overall ready to see what the director’s next film will be. All those sensations describe the emotional roller coaster of the movie, Secrets!

secrets the movie

The film centers on Tarron Jenkins (Harold House Moore) a successful businessman who seems to have it all, but feels his marriage has become dull and boring. He often opts to cheat on his wife, Secret (Denyce Lawton) rather than address their marital problems. Secret is often left insecure, wondering how they should fix their problems and who he is seeing. Tarron, however, seems to have everything under control until he meets his beautiful co-worker, Victoria Campbell (Denise Boutte). Victoria is vivacious, confident, and most of all seductive; pulling him into an affair just may tear his entire world apart!

This film had it all; love, drama, sex, power, and most of all secrets! We all have secrets and this film addresses that. All too often it is so easy to point the finger at someone else’s life and tell them what they are doing wrong. Interestingly, and in actuality, they too have their own secrets that could be just as devastating or worst! This film is truly relatable. If you have ever been unhappy in any relationship, been someone who has cheated or been cheated on, or even has family issues you will find yourself right in line with the characters of this film.

Last night celebrities and influencers such as Kandi Burrus, Todd Tucker, Traci Steele,  Best Selling Author Miasha, Married To Medicine’s Genise Shelton, BET’s Ink Paper Scissors cast member Danni  and more attended the red carpet premiere of Secrets the Movie at Midtown Art Cinema.  Attendees were privy to the full length feature film starring Denise Boutte, Harold “House” Moore, Dennis “LA” White,  Denyce Lawton. and Kiya Roberts.  Executive producer Tressa “Azarel” Smallwood and Director Juwan Lee participated in a Q & A after the premiere, along with Kiya Roberts and Dennis White.
 You can really appreciate the time, work, and energy that went into making Secrets such a success. The cast was nothing short of amazing. The chemistry and acting were on point! Let’s not forget to mention we loved seeing our celebrity friend to the site, Tobias Truvillion, as Tarron’s voice of reason! We attended the Atlanta premiere of the film and were amazed by the love, support, and gathering of celebrities and the press. This may be an independent film, but it was nothing less than an A-List work of art!

It’s a new day, and another semi-famous person is attempting to break the internet. This time around the person is related to “Mr. Steal Your Girl,” Trey Songz. Yep, the singer’s brother, Forrest Tucker, is back in media, and do more than showing his eggplant. This time around he is indulging in a little “self-pleasure” that has the ladies, and a few gents, going gaga! You can see the video by clicking here. (MATURE CONTENT! VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED!)

Yes the video is raw!

Forrest may not be as famous as his brother, but that does not make him any less sexy. In fact, most might consider him even more mouth watering than Trey. Perhaps he should be called “Mr. The Guy Who Stole Mr. Steal Your Girl’s Girl!” As you may recall, this is not the first time we have seen Forrest’s penis. He is always posting the imprint of his eggplant in grey sweat pants, and then a number of his nude pictures have been leaked. You can catch those on the next page of the story. As always it is MATURE CONTENT! VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED!

[Video] Um, Come Again Sir? According To Director Lee Daniels (@leedanielsent), America Needs A Leading White Character To Bring Everyone Together

lee daniels

Okay, it’s fair to say that America as we know it no longer exists. The next four years will be an interesting journey for this country and there are a lot of people worried about where that journey will lead us. The time leading up to the great election basically split America in half and racial tensions grew high. Unfortunately,  no one knows of an immediate remedy to cure racism in America. Well, that is unless you’re Lee Daniels.

Director Lee DanielsSome think we need to have continuous panel discussions where we try to understand each other. While others think we should deal with it head on and have no tolerance. Well, director Lee Daniels thinks watching more “white” lead characters on television will make all the world’s problems disappear. Daniels recently told the women of “The Real” that his lead character of his new Fox drama, “Star”, is white because he felt “the country needed to heal”.

Hmm, I’m not sure what healing powers a lead white character on a primetime show possesses, but I’m sure Daniels has some rationale behind this. Right?

Daniels told the women of “The Real”,

“I thought that it was important to address race relations in America. We are, truly I believe, in a civil war. And I think that when we understand that we’re all one that [we will] then understand America. And America is still to be understood by us.”

Daniels’ new show, “Star”, which airs December 14th, will follow the careers and lives of three women trying to make a name for themselves in the music business. One of the women in the musical trio is…yep, you guessed it… she is white.

[VIDEO] Denzel Washington (@DenzelWN) & Viola Davis (@violadavis) Become Instant Oscar Frontrunners w/ ‘Fences’

Denzel Washington is delivering another hit movie for Christmas!

Denzel Washington’s big screen adaptation of August Wilson’s “Fences” has arrived, and it’s a definite Oscar winner!  That’s hardly a surprise for a project based on Pulitzer Prize-winning source material that has landed major Tony Awards in two separate Broadway productions.

Denzel Washington & Viola Davis in ‘Fences’

The film featured for industry audiences Saturday, screening in Westwood before a crowd that included Screen Actors Guild nominating committee members, Academy voters and press. Washington was on hand for a post-screening Q&A moderated by Variety‘s Jenelle Riley, along with co-stars Viola Davis, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Jovan Adepo, Russell Hornsby, Mykelti Williamson and Saniyya Sidney.

Via Variety:

When asked what drew him to the role of Troy Maxson, Washington let loose a chuckle and quipped, “The role of Troy Maxson.” Indeed, when producer Scott Rudin first sent him the script for the film, which Wilson had penned himself, Washington wasn’t interested in diving into it as a movie immediately. He wanted to work through the material on the stage first, which led to Rudin raising the money for the 2010 Broadway revival.

“August Wilson wrote a masterpiece,” Washington said. “It’s one of the great plays of all time. It’s the gift that keeps on giving and as we found out, it works as a film as well.”

Washington had directed Davis previously, in the 2002 film “Antwone Fisher.” The actress said she considers herself “a friend and a fan,” and spoke about how easy Washington made things for her and the other actors.

“The two things he said to us before we started was, ‘Remember the love,’ and the second thing he said, which is a frightening statement for actors, was, ‘Trust me” — and we did,” Davis said. “A lot of people don’t know what to say to actors to unlock it. A lot of times they know what to do to keep it in there, and make you afraid, but not Denzel. He’s a great leader. And he’s an extraordinary man. He’s a man of God and a man of great integrity, and I think it shows in his work.”

This is going to be another amazing hit for Denzel Washington who has managed to bring together a magnificent group of actors and we all are looking forward to this performance.

Catch it in theaters this Christmas! The movie is scheduled to release December 25!

Set against the backdrop of a sprawling Memphis megachurch, the journey of estranged daughter and disillusioned preacher Grace Greenleaf (Merle Dandridge), who has returned home after 20 years on the occasion of the mysterious death of her sister, Faith. As she re-enters the world of Calvary Fellowship World Ministries, the Memphis megachurch run by her powerful parents Bishop James Greenleaf (Keith David) and Lady Mae Greenleaf (Lynn Whitfield), it becomes evident that things are not as virtuous as they seem and that the family’s outward display of faith hides sin and misdeeds.

“Bow down BITCHES!”

Beyonce has yet again proven that she is the Queen “Bey,” leading the nominations for next year’s Grammys across the board!

Apparently her Lemonade album struck a chord with the musical “powers that be,” proving there really is no stopping her momentum or relevance.  Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West are tied for the second-most nominations, with eight nominations each. Chance the Rapper, up for his first Grammys, scored an impressive seven nominations.

Beyonce, Adele and Drake are all up for the top prize of album of the year, where they will face off against Justin Bieber and Sturgill Simpson. With her nine nominations, Beyonce is now a 62-time Grammy nominee, with more nominations than any other female artist in Grammy history. The superstar musician has 20 Grammy Awards and if she wins in eight of the nine categories in which she is nominated, she’ll become the most-awarded female artist in Grammy history, a title that currently belongs to 27-time Grammy winner Alison Krauss. In addition to nominations for album of the year, best urban contemporary album and best music film for Lemonade, Beyonce is up for record of the year, song of the year and best music video for “Formation.” She’s also nominated for best pop solo performance for “Hold Up,” best rock performance for “Don’t Hurt Yourself,” featuring Jack White, and best rap/sung performance for “Freedom,” featuring Kendrick Lamar.

 adele

Adele’s “Hello” joins Beyonce in the record of the year category, where the other nominees are Lukas Graham’s “7 Years,” “Work” from Rihanna featuring Drake and Twenty One Pilots’ “Stressed Out.”  Both “Hello” and “Formation” are up for song of the year along with Mike Posner’s “I Took A Pill in Ibiza,” Bieber’s “Love Yourself” and Graham’s “7 Years.”

Chance the Rapper is up for best new artist along with Kelsea Ballerini, The Chainsmokers, Maren Morris and Anderson.Paak.

David Bowie scored four posthumous nominations, including one for best alternative music album, one for best rock song and one for best rock performance.

 suicide squad

The Suicide Squad soundtrack scored three nominations: one for best compilation soundtrack for visual media and two more in the best song written for visual media category (for “Purple Lamborghini” and “Heathens”). Joining Suicide Squad in the category of best compilation soundtrack for visual media are Amy, Miles Ahead, Straight Outta Compton and Vinyl: The Essentials Season 1. Best song written for visual media includes a number of Oscar-hopeful compositions, including Justin Timberlake’s ubiquitous “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” from Trolls and Zootopia’s “Try Everything,” which are nominated alongside the two Suicide Squad tracks, Pink’s “Just Like Fire” from Alice Through the Looking Glass and Peter Gabriel’s “The Veil” from Snowden.

The best score soundtrack for visual media category features the music from high-profile movies from late 2015 — Bridge of Spies, The Hateful Eight, The Revenant and Star Wars: The Force Awakens — as well as both volumes of the Stranger Things soundtrack.  Hollywood stars Amy Schumer and Carol Burnett each earned nominations for best spoken-word album, competing against Patti Smith, Elvis Costello and the various artists behind Under The Big Black Sun: A Personal History Of L.A. Punk.

“Ain’t Nothing Like Being Free!” Phaedra Parks’ (@PhaedraParks) Divorce Has Been FINALIZED!

phaedra parks

Well it is official!

After more than two years of nonsense and shenanigans The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Phaedra Parks is a single woman again.

News has come in that her divorce has been finalized; which pretty much dismisses any of her ex-husband, Apollo Nida’s new nonsense. As you may recall, not only is Apollo still incarcerated, but he filed divorce documents of his own seeking joint custody of their two sons.

via TMZ:

phaedra parks and apollo nida

Court docs unsealed Monday back up Phaedra’s original claim 100% — she’s been officially single since July.

According to the docs, Apollo was served in March — while behind bars — and even asked the court for time to respond, which he was granted. Still, 4 months went by and he went radio silent … so the judge went ahead and signed off on the divorce without Apollo’s signature.

The docs also include a parenting plan. Phaedra gets physical custody of their 2 kids while Apollo finishes his 8 year bid. When he’s out, he’ll get visitation, but she gets final say over any parenting disagreements.

Apollo denied knowing anything about the divorce, and even went so far as to file his own petition last week. Clearly, he’s got time to kill right now.

phaedra parks

We are happy to see Phaedra is done with this nonsense. Apollo is nice to look at and that’s about it. His latest attempts to try and undermine his now ex-wife have failed. We just wonder what is next for Phaedra? We are sure she has a few suitors in mind and with her charm, wits, and beauty we all know she can upgrade away from Apollo with all the deliberate speed God allows. Did anyone else catch how Apollo is trying to get joint custody of the kids while still being locked up? No judge would ever let that happen. Congrats Phaedra!
