Underground (@UndergroundWGN)- “Firefly”

Underground begins with Cato finding the overseer, Bill, in his home badly injured from being stabbed in the neck after attacking Rosalee. Cato contemplates killing him until he hears Tom approaching and then yells for help. At The Big House, Ernestine searches for Rosalee, wondering if she had abandoned her morning chores. Tom summons her to Bill’s aide and there he reveals it was Rosalee who has injured him. They search the plantation for her, learning she and Noah have ran! Tom sets his slave drivers on their trail. Noah and Rosalee make their way to an outhouse. There she discards her dress while Noah finds a new dress hanging on a clothing line for her. He tells her the song of freedom, hoping she can make sense of it. Up North, Josey, a runaway slave holds John and Elizabeth hostage. He demands to know what has happened to his wife, Tippy. John insists he does not know who she is and that he has never owned slaves. Josey’s friend tries to reason him with him, feeling John and Elizabeth know nothing about slavery.

Ernestine goes to see Sam and demands to know what he knows about Noah. He inadvertently admits she was not suppose to run off him with him, and admonishes his mother for leaving him to work in The Big House years ago. She tells him now is now the time for their problems and that they must help Rosalee however they can. She demands he tell her everything. Josey makes Elizabeth serve them as if they were slaves and then demands they tell him what has happened to his wife. John continues to tell him he knows nothing and was just finishing law school years ago when Tippy was taken away from him. Josey punishes him for “lying” and tells him he will show what happens to slaves that lie to their masters. His friend leaves him, telling him he wants no part of what he is doing.  Noah teaches Rosalee the song to freedom, so she can set out on her own. He tells her he is going back for the rest of The Macon 7. He recounts he first heard of free Blacks and that meeting Henry reminded him that he had to try and make it to freedom. Rosalee kisses him. The next morning, the slave catchers’ dogs pick up Noah and Rosalee’s scent. Noah tells her to run ahead of him as he deals with the dogs. She refuses, and pulls up a few plants from the ground and covers them with it just as the dogs make it to them. The flowers poison the dogs, preventing them from tracking them.

#CelebrityCrush- Logan Browning (@LoganLaurice)

Child stars are always cute, but seldom grow into true adult and successful actors and actresses. Logan Browning is truly more than a “seldom one.” Instead she has shed her Meet The Browns’ persona of the rebellious and rambunctious,  “Brianna Ortiz,” to become a true television villain in the form of Hit The Floor’s “Jelena Howard.” Weekly, we get to see this cat eyed girl–we mean grown ass woman–steal every scene and the hearts of millions with one dastardly deed after another. We never mind though because she looks so damn good doing it!

 

You would never know that in real life she is quite the sweetheart; someone admired by her family, friends, and co-stars. In fact, her on-screen love interest, Rob Riley, routinely praises her performances and they have a genuine friendship; despite those rumors of true romance between the two. The only thing more amazing than Logan’s acting is her beauty! Her eyes draw you in, her lips bend you to her will, and oh those curves–make good men bow!

We are not sure who shot her character on this week’s third season finale of Hit The Floor, but they just better be sure she survives–or VH-1’s ratings won’t!

“Vaughn and I met on eHarmony!” Tatyana said. “It was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met.” Tatyana also revealed how the good doctor proposed to her.

“He took me on a 45-minute hike in the Redwoods [in Yosemite, California], which he knows I absolutely love,” she said. “And proposed in the most picturesque clearing. Just the two of us. It was so thoughtful and perfect. We’re best friends.”

“Planning our wedding has been so exciting, but when we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely,” Tatyana added. “We want our ceremony to really celebrate our newest blessing!”

Dr. Vaughn Rasberry is an assistant professor at Stanford University as well as an author. Vaughn Rasberry studies African American literature, global Cold War culture, post-colonial theory, and philosophical theories of modernity.

We love Tatyana Ali because she is one of the few child stars who have flown seemingly under the radar when it comes to their personal life. We wish the best of luck to the expecting couple!

#CelebrityCrush: Laith Ashley (@laith_ashley)

Sexy isn’t always a physical attribute… Sometimes it’s described as a belief, a mindset and a certain type of drive and today, our Monday #CelebrityCrush has all of that and the sex appeal to boot.

Laith Ashley first gained Internet stardom as a model who didn’t shy away from posting their sultry and somewhat risque snapshots online.
