I interviewed Lauren Lake of Paternity Court at a NAACP nominees luncheon. Find out what she says when I asked her how she manages a motherhood along with such a popular TV show. Watch our conversation below.
I interviewed Yara Shahidi who plays 14-year-old Zoey Johnson on ABC's Black-ish at the NAACP Nominees' Luncheon. Yara also co-hosted the event with her Black-ish co-star, Marcus Scribner. I have loved this adorable actor since she made her theatrical debut in 2009, starring opposite Eddie Murphy in Paramount Pictures' Imagine That, for which she received a Young Artist Award nomination for the best performance in a feature film category. In December 2014 she won an NAACP Image Award in the category of 'Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy'. And In 2016 she signed to model with New York’s Women Management modeling agency, in hopes of providing a platform to see more women of color in diverse roles. I applaud her parents for raising such a woke girl. She is black girl magic and an excellent role model for young girls.
Check out how Yara had me cracking up talking about how Jenifer Lewis is a constant source of comedy with her ad libs and the improving of half of her lines. Watch below.
I spoke to Naturi Naughton of the hit Starz show 'Power' about the upcoming 3rd season, her new music, and the Oscar controversy. We also talked about Whitney Houston who is one of Naturi's musical influences and inspirations. Check out our red carpet interview below at the 47th annual NAACP Image Awards luncheon.
I spoke to veteran actor Joe Morton who is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series (Scandal) on the red carpet of The 47th annual NAACP Nominees luncheon. We talked about his feelings about the Oscar controversy and people calling for Chris Rock to step down as host. His reaction echoed the same sentiments of Whoopi Goldberg when she shared her comments on 'The View.' "Why boycott Chris Rock?" says Joe Morton right off the bat. He goes on to say, 'I think it's too late to boycott the Oscars." Watch the rest of what he says below.
