Eddie Griffin Going for Broke
on to your car keys! Funny man Eddie Griffin is on the move again! As if
crashing a 1.5 million dollar Ferrari Enzo into a cement wall last year or getting booted from a Black Enterprise event for using the n-word too much on stage wasnt
enough to make a brother slow his roll, the comedian is back, and this time hes
Going For Broke on the super highway
of reality TV.
and the producers behind A&Es wildly popular Gene Simmons: Family Jewels, have ordered eight episodes of the new
Going For Broke series, which is said
to give us Griffin in the raw, including insight into how he
struggles to juggle life as a player and family man.
also got the green light to start filming Undercover
Brother 2. The sequel was almost a wrap before it ever got started due to
the studios (Universal) discomfort with the racial content of the film. Theres
also talk of two more movies, Mojo
and Bees Nuts. We might have to sit down and talk with Griffin on these.
Another look... Eddie Griffin and the infamous crash
Grey Over His Anatomy
disclosed papers filed with SAG (Screen Actors Guild), Isaiah Washington was
not happy over ABCs alleged unauthorized use of his picture in a May 9 episode
of Greys Anatomy. The shot was
featured in a "newspaper article" about Washingtons character Dr. Preston Burke
receiving a prestigious surgeon's award.
You would think after distancing themselves from Washington
because of claims he made homophobic comments about former castmate T.R.
Knight, ABC would have moved on. Isaiah has. In fact, he is currently shooting Patriots, a sports film about a New
Orleans basketball team with Forest Whitaker for Weinstein Co. due out this
Meanwhile, Washingtons attorney Peter Nelson says his client expects
a pay check for the screw up. Hope its a nice one! So far ABC is being a
little mediaphobic about the issue.
Diddy! Another Star In Town?
Ok, before any of you go hating (those of you who will), keep in
mind Kim Porter already told yall in this months issue of Jet Magazine that shes used to being
talked about and it doesnt phase her. So with that in mind, it might please
you to know that sister girl isnt glued to her ex-man/forever-friend Puffys
side. She is diligently making her rounds in Hollywood.
Porters been studying with Tasha Smith of Tyler Perrys Daddys Little Girls and Why Did I Get Married?, whos like the new
go to girl for sharpening your chops in Hollywood. Talk around town is its
Some casting directors, whom we wont mention, say Porter is
holding her own in the casting rooms and her recent role in Mama I Want To Sing and a reality show
possibility with Lifetime is just the beginning.
Flavor of Love 3s Black
Finishes Big - Win or Lose
way I look at it, everybody wins tonight on the season finale of VH1s Flavor of Love 3. Black, Sinceer and Thing 2 finally get to
advance from pretending to be into a dude theyd probably never get with in the
real world. But if I had to choose who will benefit the most, Id say for sure,
Candace Cabrera, a.k.a. Black.
already started to rake in the dough from photos shoots and she's getting requests
for appearances, but I remember receiving this girl's resume for a project I was
casting and thinking, Ok, shes cute and shes trying to do a little
to Blacks resume, shes got a degree in Business Marketing, she has a real
estate license and shes even taken the prereqs for medical school, which was her
initial plan of study.
after all that boring intellectual and business stuff, she has decided to
explore other opportunities, which brings her to Flavor Flavs potential TV Queen! Can you say work it girl?!
