Queen Latifah hit 100 Million but hasn’t Paid her Cast…..

Recently, social media has been in celebration about “Girls Trip” hitting the $100 Million mark. However, as we celebrate the success of Girls Trip, it’s been bought to our attention that some of the cast from the upcoming production “The Trap” are yet to have been paid. 

In case you don’t recall, its been reported recently about the collaboration of T. I., Mike Epps, and Queen Latifah. 


According to the Hollywood Reporter:

Queen Latifah and her Flavor Unit Entertainment partner Shakim Compere are producing and financing the project, which is based on a story co-written by Epps.

With that said, we were sent an email from one of the cast members. This email was sent to them by one of the casting companies that casting for the production. As you will see, the email is apologizing to the cast for not being paid. See for yourself! #WheresMyCoinBish


Did you catch it???? Not only is the cast awaiting payment but so is the casting company. Talk about some bullshytt. 

Can someone call Queen and ask her if she plans to use part of the $100 Million to pay the cast and casting company????

Thugs and the Women who Love Em

Lets get into it. Another day on the celebrity circuit and we are hit with a new play filled with has beens, was beens, and ain’t beens!

Thugs and the Women who Love Em

Where do you go when the hood is all you know? That’s the question facing four friends as they navigate the sex and crime filled streets of the only home they’ve ever known.

Lisa wants out, desperately. Not just out of her neighborhood but away from the men that rule it. She’s had enough of the hustlers and pimps and drug dealers who offer nothing but short term pleasure…and long term pain.
Shawn? Please…she ain’t goin nowhere. The hood is where Shawn belongs and she’s definitely not afraid to show it. She runs game with the best of em and is quick to take advantage of any hustler who makes the mistake of thinking she can be played.
Kelly and Candace are tired of the hustlers and the thugs and all of the drama they bring. What they can’t let go of is the way these dudes put it down in the bedroom. They call it “Thug Love” and the two of them can’t get enough.
Four different perspectives from four extraordinary women who’ve built a sisterhood through some very difficult times. Now, one by one, each of them will be asked to choose between the men they love and the life they want. Are they really four strong, independent, black women ready to write their own story and be the stars of their own lives? Or are they destined forever to be nothing more than co-stars in somebody else’s script…nothing more than Thugs and the Women Who Love Them.

No shade, the cast isn’t the worse, we just don’t know how we feel about these individuals on stage. This could have possibly been better in a film format. Nevertheless, will you be going?

Rihanna: Fat or Phat

Social Media shaming is upon us yet again. Recently, Rihanna was called "Fat" by a blogger.

To take it a step further, the pictures from Carnival 2017 were released and some fans noticed a photoshop FAIL! Let's talk about it.

Now, let's keep it real. We all see the Two Thumbs or Thumbnail, depending on how you call it. However, we don't think Rihanna was photoshopping her weight. Not only is there no reason to hide her body, but who photoshops Carnival pics? Not Ri Ri!

After you get into the alleged photoshop pic, get into one that isn't in question.

Is there anything wrong with this body????? Not at All…….

It's sad that media is so pressed for a story they have to attack Bad Gal Ri Ri……..

Sound off Bookers and tell us what you think.

Movie Review “Girls Trip”

We finally had the opportunity to experience “Girls Trip” and it was PHENOMENAL. 

Best friends Ryan, Sasha, Lisa and Dina are in for the adventure of a lifetime when they travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival. Along the way, they rekindle their sisterhood and rediscover their wild side by doing enough dancing, drinking, brawling and romancing to make the Big Easy blush.

We walked into the film expecting to laugh through the entire movie and have an entertaining experience. However, upon completion of the film, you realize that there is a story amongst the humor and even deeper, a form of self realization within the story. 

Jada Pinkett Smith

We all know Girls Trip is based on 4 girlfriends taking a trip to the Essence Festival in the hopes of reconnecting and fixing their strained relationship. During this trip, you begin to learn each member of the group and you subconsciously start to place your friends into their roles. 

For those who haven’t seen it, we strongly suggest you do, however, we won’t give it all away, during the comedy there are some hurdles that each character experiences. These hurdles begin to cause you to realize which girl you relate the most to. Furthermore, you begin to ask yourself, “what would I do?”

From the Nights out on the town, to the intimate conversations in bed, this film has something for everyone. Male and Female.

Now! Let’s get into the film as a whole:

Story- 9/10

Fashion- 10/10

Eye candy- 10/10

Laughter- 10/10

Relateability- 10/10

Acting- 10/10

Overall Score-10/10
