Who is Stacey Dash? That’s what Gabrielle Union wanted to know when she was quizzed over comments made by Dash regarding the BET Awards. Dash is of course familiar to most as Dionne from 90’s classic Clueless, but these days she’s becoming more known for her work on Fox News, where she often appears a little clueless on important issues.
Gabrielle Union wants to know, ‘who is Stacey Dash’?
Speaking on Fox News last Wednesday Dash said, “If we don’t want segregation, then we have to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where you’re only awarded if you’re black.”

The latest leak has celebrities fuming, with good reason.
Another week, another celebrity photo leak. Over the weekend, a few more celebrities had their privacy grossly violated, when private nude photos made the pages of Reddit and 4chan. The photos were quickly taken down, but the story has been circulating ever since the leak. Apparently, this round included candid pictures of Kim Kardashian, Hayden Panettierre, Vanessa Hudgens, Hope Solo, Mary-Kate Olsen and a number of other powerful women in the industry. The leak also included photos of someone, resembling Jennifer Lawrence. The 24-year-old Oscar winner was also targeted in the previous hack.
Jennifer Lawrence handled the previous invasion like a true warrior, but she may have taken another hit this time.
Many of the affected women were also targeted in the first hack, but the Kardashian sister was not. The photos (which you probably shouldn’t google out of sheer decency) allegedly show her taking a nude selfie in a bathroom mirror. As you do. The woman, who may or may not actually be Kim K, isn’t wearing a wedding ring and the date of the photos is unclear.
Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have married in Miami.
The happy couple pictured in July 2013
The couple got engaged in December 2013, but began dating in 2009. Their relationship has been rocky at times, with the couple splitting temporarily in early 2013 due to Union's desire to focus on her career, and during time apart, Wade fathered a child with Aja Metoyer, but it looks like they're both back to being loved up!

Lee Thompson Young has since been remembered fondly on sites like Twitter and FaceBook.
"It is with great sadness that I announce that Lee Thompson Young tragically took his own life this morning," Jonathan Baruch, Young's long-standing manager and friend said in a statement. "Lee was more than just a brilliant young actor, he was a wonderful and gentle soul who will be truly missed.

Along the way, the newly-named vessel Dave Ming Chang (Murphy, again) will befriend a young widow (Elizabeth Banks) and her son Josh (Austin Lynd Myers). As the police try to track down the man-shaped craft, a mutiny among the crew puts all in danger.

The question driving Abandon is who abandoned who? Did charismatic but manipulative Embry (Charlie Hunnam) leave his clingy college sweetheart, Katie (Katie Holmes, who probably would get confused if she and her character didn't share a first name), or is it the other way around? And is Embry alive and kicking on a European jaunt, or dead, as a sleazy, washed-up detective (Benjamin Bratt) believes but can't prove?

Going in to this movie, I knew full well it was, well, a movie about cheerleading, so I wasn't expecting another American Beauty (which, now that I think of it, was partly about cheerleading, but anyway...). Suffice it to say that my expectations were low. And sure enough, Bring It On is an utterly vapid film with horrendous character development, hackneyed dialogue, and a questionable theme. No surprise there. Essentially it is Fame in short skirts.

Jackie Gleason and Audrey Meadows pulled it off because1) they gave a certain tenacious chemistry to their characters' head-buttingmarriage, 2) Gleason had a gift for finding humor and humanity in unsympatheticroles, and 3) it was a simpler time, when idiotic get-rich-quick schemesweren't quite such a tiresome excuse for cheap laughs.
But none of this is true of the big-screen remake starringCedric the Entertainer as conniving New York City bus driver Ralph Kramden,who spends the whole movie lying to his waitress wife Alice (GabrielleUnion) while emptying their bank account to buy an antique train car (hethinks fitting it with tires is enough to create a money-making tour bus)or to race a stray greyhound at the local track.
Cedric may split sides with his stand-up routines and politicallyincorrect topical rants in the "Barbershop"movies,but here he's sleepwalking through a routine script full of uninspiredexposition ("All we need is $20,000 for the down payment..."),stereotypical characters (loud-mouthed mother-in-law), shopworn physicalgags (cayenne pepper ends up in someone's food), contrived conflicts (Ralphhas a falling out with Ed, his dim-witted plumber best pal played by half-stonedMike Epps), pop culture references ("You're just a regular UPN sitcom,ain't 'cha, Alice?"), lucky coincidences, and insultingly easy resolutionsto all life's problems.

A "Taming of the Shrew"-inspired romantic comedy about three buddies who are so in love with three sisters that they bribe a local Lothario to romance the girls' foxy but man-less, meddling hellcat of an older sibling, "Deliver Us From Eva" is thick with unfulfilled promise.
Where there could be well-developed characters, there are empty caricatures of bossy black women and whipped black men instead. Where there should be smart comedy, there's a silly, sit-comy kidnapping scenario.
In under-thumb husband/boyfriend roles that good actors like Morris Chestnut or Terrence Howard could have added real substance to, "Eva" has cue-card-quality non-name players -- Mel Jackson (whose eyebrows move as much as his lips with every line delivery) and Dartanyan Edmonds (playing the kind of corn-row-coifed brother whose vocabulary doesn't extend much beyond the word "daaaaamn!").

A movie that preaches dishonesty, trickery and manipulation as the keys to romantic happiness, "Two Can Play That Game" is populated by pathetically shallow "players" of both sexes and very talented actors trapped by their skin color in a tired genre of self-perpetuating stereotypes.
"Two Can Play" is about a successful black ad executive (Vivica A. Fox) who thinks her man, a successful black lawyer (Morris Chestnut), may be running around on her. Her solution for shaping him up (rather than confronting him and having an adult conversation or just leaving to find someone better) is to launch into a 10-day plan that includes breaking up, not returning his calls, making sure he sees her with other men, going to his house, getting him hot, then leaving, and a whole litany of other vindictive head games.
Of course, all of this is meant to be risqué and amusing, but in fact it just makes the movie's heroine look like the kind of shrill, immature, self-centered strumpet whom no man in his right mind would want to be saddled with.

"Bring It On" is better than any movie about cheerleading really ought to be.
Taking cues from "Clueless" -- the best teen bubble gum flick of Generation Y -- it's a self-mocking popularity satire that takes frequent pot shots at "sweater monkeys" and their endlessly percolating pep, while also allowing its bright cast of pretty young things to color outside the lines of their stock characters.
The talented Kirsten Dunst embraces her inner ditz as Torrence Shipman, the new cheer captain of the Rancho Carne High School Toros, a boys-and-girls pep squad with a repertoire of flashy choreographed routines and a major reputation to maintain. For five years running they've won the ruthlessly competitive national cheerleading championships. (You know you've watched them on ESPN2, admit it.)
