When tea spilling pepaw Quincy Jones let it slip that Marlon Brando used to get his swerve on with Richard Pryor, everybody in my circles gave Richard a posthumous tip of the hat for pulling that hot piece (of course, we were all picturing Streetcar Marlon when it really would have been more like Last Tango Marlon but please just let us have this). Sadly, Richard’s own daughter, Head of The Class actress Rain Pryor, wasn’t so pleased about this news coming out and so she posted a couple of lengthy screeds to FB denouncing Quincy for tainting her father’s legacy for fun and profit. She also came after Richard’s widow Jennifer for confirming the rumors, calling her a “bottom feeder”.
In case you missed it, Jennifer told TMZ that not only was Quincey’s tea hot and juicy, it was also accurate:
“It was the ’70s! Drugs were still good, especially Quaaludes,” Jennifer said. “If you did enough cocaine, you’d fuck a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.”
Between Marlon fucking mailboxes etc. and Richard dicking down radiators, it’s a miracle that Sears survived the 70’s at all!
I was elated by Jennifer’s response but Rain, not so much. Rain is not amused.

The last line got cut off there, it says “I’m getting my millions the correct way, with integrity!!!!”.
Honestly I’m quite confused by Rain’s reaction. Why is she yelling fake, I’m sorry “faux,” news (lort, I done sprained my eyes)? How does Richard’s bisexuality equate to black people not being represented in “a great light“? It seems like the only other people pissed by this revelation are homophobic types. And I’m sorry, Rain. Your Pryor name is the only thing that might help you get your millions so ya might want to watch where you’re throwing those stones, you could break a window, wall or ceiling.
In a subsequent post, Rain did acknowledge her dad’s bisexuality but still insists that what Quincy said was nothing but lies meant to drag her “Daddy” through the mud. Rain said (in part):
However, Daddy did NOT have relations with Brando. There were no trips to his South Pacific Oasis, no flowers or love notes between. Not even a film role.
Why this sudden need to drag Daddy through the Hollywood mud? I find it tasteless and infuriating. At least get the details right, but of course we live in the age of faux news is real unless we disagree for our own agendas, and people need to stay relevant by dishing dirt.
Yep, I still don’t get it. Nobody said Richard and Marlon were romantically connected, just orifice-ally connected! She was a baby during this time (48-year-old Rain is one of Richard’s 7 kids with 6 different women), how does she know who her daddy was fucking. And it’s not like Richard’s legacy was that of an abstinence preaching, teetotaler who thought rock and roll was the devil’s music. One of Richard’s most famous sets was all about him lighting himself of fire while smoking crack! Sounds more likely to me that Rain is the one milking this story for headlines. Maybe she’s trying to get a Head of The Class reboot to happen.
