Move over Quentin Tarantino, it’s Ryan Murphy’s turn to monkey with Hollywood history! And because it’s Ryan, it features twinks instead of toes. The first full trailer is here for Ryan’s upcoming Netflix Original series, Hollywood. According to Indiewire, the show takes place post WWII and “presents an alternative version of history wherein actors and writers of color are more openly part of the Hollywood studio system,” but apparently, uggos still need not apply. The show stars Darren Criss, Dylan McDermott, Patti LuPone, newcomers David Corenswet and Jeremy Pope, Justin Theroux’s rumored former fling Laura Harrier, Mrs. Sarah Paulson Holland Taylor and Jim Parsons. It also features Jake Picking as Rock Hudson and Queen Latifah as Hattie McDaniel, suggesting that Ryan finally learned the hard way not to fuck with Hollywood legends who are still alive. The show is written and directed by Janet Mock (Pose) and features a gas station where, for the right price, you can get your tank filled up with premium unleaded assoline.
The stars of Girls Trip, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish, joined Jada Pinkett Smith for a special Zoom version of Red Table Talk. They shot the shit, talked about a possible Girls Trip sequel (they’re “all down”), and discussed their celebrity crushes. Regina says hers is the Dalai Lama and Jada’s husband Will Smith. Tiffany likes Giancarlo Stanton from the Yankees (yeah, me no know who that is either), and Jada says she never misses a sexy Governor Andrew Cuomo press conference (I prefer Chris, but fair).
When it was Queen Latifah’s turn, she said her crush was Adriana Lima. Even though lots of straight women do that “my girl crush is…” thing, we all know that Queen Latifah (ALLEGEDLY) isn’t a straight woman. So it wasn’t a nothing moment. Especially since the 50-year-old has never spoken publicly about her sexuality or her ALLEGED partner, 41-year-old former Lakers cheerleader/choreographer Eboni Nichols, whom she ALLEGEDLY welcomed a baby with last year.

I was already mad that I had to push way too many buttons on my remote control trying to pull up The Wonderful World Of Disney Presents The Little Mermaid Live! on my DVR (I should only have had to type “the lit” before it popped up but that long ass title had it buried unda da mother fucking sea). That pretty much set the tone for my entire viewing experience. We knew from the teaser trailer that we were in for a low-budget cash grab, but whooah boy. Shaggy phoning it in as Sebastian, the alleged crab-looking Eddie Murphy in Delirious meets Edward Scissorhands drag, was not something I was prepared for. Thank The Gods for Queen Latifah because her Ursula the Sea Witch was the only life form in all of Atlantica that didn’t look like it was about to expire from eating too many plastic bags.
So this is the live The Little Mermaid, not the one which is featuring a black Ariel and making racist people furious online. Although this one’s budget infuriates me. But I guess they splurged on Queen Latifah and had to cut corners on the marketing budget. This is a televised concert of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, which will also star Shaggy as Sebastian, so I can’t wait to see him and a lady crab bangin’ on the ocean floor.
The year is 2019, and there’s a teddy bear in Naughty by Nature. It’s as confusing a notion as it is a sentence to read. But these are the times we are living in. Time to accept that what once was in the past, will be revisiting us in the present (with a collection of random pop culture barnacles from The Time Tube attached), to confuse future generations. So now NBN (pictured above with their new bear Illtown Sluggaz and Redman) has a Kanye West style College Dropout teddy bear in it, and Treach has gone from excoriating his ex-wife Pepa (of Salt-N-Pepa fame) on Instagram, to parading around in bondage gear and issuing confusing handkerchief codes at the 2019 MTV Video Music Awards. Hip hop hooray?
Radar is claiming that Queen Latifah and her alleged longtime life partner Eboni Nichols are the proud mommas of a new baby. You might say to yourself, “This is Radar, are they sure that Eboni wasn’t just sporting a food baby bump after a Qdoba run?” Maybe, but they’ve got pics of a kid in a car seat and saying that Eboni had a belly going on previous to those.
