The Butler will tell the story of Eugene Allen, a Black butler who lived in the White House and served eight presidents from 1952 to 1986. Allen witnessed history in the making and closely observed many President decisions for what is best for the country.
Negotiations are currently in the works for Academy award winning actor FORREST WHITTAKER to play Eugene, and media mogul OPRAH WINFREY to play his wife according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Although DANIELS has yet to secure any other actors, he has plans to make this an star studded cast, and notably making this WINFREY first role since Beloved in 1998.
Looks like rapper WIZ KHALIFA has finally made an honest woman out of AMBER ROSE.
Minutes ago ROSE posted photo of her engagement ring on her instagram page – Muvarosebod.
Along with picture of the simply brilliant rock she captioned, “He has made me the Happiest Woman in the World!!!!!”
She and WIZ have been dating since early 2011, and it looks like all the talk of being together forever, and truly loving each other, wasn’t just “Hollywood talk.”
We’re sending a big congrats to the two!!!
Episode 2 has aired, and new cast member KENYA BELL caught some heat for her eccentric home YouTube videos and seemingly shaky music career.
Juicy caught up with KENYA to get her reaction to the episode, thoughts on her “videos”, and what she really thinks about SUZIE.
Juicy: Tell us what were those YouTube videos about?
KENYA BELL: First of all, those YouTube videos were done years ago. They are just for fun. They’re not serious. I wasn’t trying to make a real music video. Basically, when I work out I like to dance. So I was like I’m gonna learn some BEYONCCE [choreography] for fun. My husband at the time agreed to tape them and we edited them together for my website. In order for me to upload them to my website I had to put them on YouTube first. So that’s all that was.
Juicy: Interesting, because the show made it seem like you were serious about those videos – especially your reaction when Suzie said you looked like you were possessed.
KB: Well [with Suzie] it was just like, you don’t even know me. You just met me and you’re already talking about I’m weird? So not cool. Maybe for her “weird” is actually having goals and something you want to do with your life. But it’s all good, because me and my crazy videos were a trending topic again.
Juicy: You’ve since deleted most of the videos from YouTube. Why?
KB: The only video that was up was the Beyonce “Sweet Dreams” one. The others have been private for a while. I know that they’ve talked about it on the show, so I just left that one up so people could see it.
Juicy: So Kesha questioned the credibility of your management team that was helping you with your music video. Do you agree that they didn’t know what they were doing?
