Congrats: Viola Davis Wins Big, Makes History at the Emmys! Huge Night for Regina King, Uzo Aduba

 photo 44f7bfe8-13a7-49d1-b815-b777c2d8fb1d_zpsopeisawi.jpg

The Emmy awards Sunday night were historic and shined a light on amazing talent getting the recognition they deserve. Viola Davis made history by becoming the first Black actress to win Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Davis gave a powerful and inspiring speech.

Uzo Aduba also won big. She won Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. She'd won previously, when "Orange is the New Black" was presented as a Comedy series.

Regina King took home the win for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie. This year's Emmy Awards were a huge year for women of color. Congrats to all of the nominees and winners.

Of isn't surprising that someone would forget about "white privilege" and throw shade at such a historic and wonderful night.

Soap Opera actress, Nancy Lee Grahn, had the nerve to tweet her disdain and displeasure at Viola Davis' Emmy speech.

There were many tweets but the one that set off a firestorm was her ignorance with the following tweets:

"Im a f*****g actress for 40 yrs. None of us get respect or opportunity we deserve. Emmys not venue 4 racial opportunity. ALL women belittled."
CHILE!!! She continued...
"I wish I loved #ViolaDavis Speech, but I thought she should have let @shondarhimes write it. #Emmys" — Nancy Lee Grahn (@NancyLeeGrahn) September 21, 2015
Immediately Black twitter (and others who were just as outraged) dragged Nancy down a street she found out was the wrong turn. She attempted to correct her swerve out of her lane, but, she hit a brick wall.

The nerve to even compare her experience in Hollywood with that of Viola Davis is absurd and delusional. Nancy's tweets were based on salty and bitter feelings. She's jealous. Point blank and the period.

 Some folks should learn when to back away from social media.

Sad News: Bestselling Novelist Jackie Colllins Passes at 77

Jackie Collins passed away over the weekend. Collins had been bravely battling breast cancer. She'd just wrapped up promo in the UK for her latest saga, The Santangelos.

Collins faced her illness head on and continued to live life to the fullest all the way till the end.

Sending prayers and condolences to her family, which includes actress, Joan Collins. May Jackie Collins rest in peace. She will be missed. Her legacy remains with the juicy tales she spun for decades.

Jackie Collins blazed a trail many have imitated...and continue to do so. Of course, that is the highest form of flattery. 

THE SANTANGELOS: A Novel by Jackie Collins

 photo 5167d125-26f6-4bfc-b873-309143af4eea_zpscf3pjthm.jpg

Legendary mega-seller Jackie Collins chronicles passion and power in one of America's most glamorous families.

A vicious hit. A vengeful enemy. A drug addled Colombian club owner. A sex crazed Italian family. And the ever powerful Lucky Santangelo has to deal with them all, while Max-her teenage daughter is becoming The "It" girl in Europe's modeling world. And her Kennedyesque son, Bobby, is being set up for a murder he didn't commit.

But Lucky can deal. Always strong and unpredictable with her husband, Lennie, by her side she lives up to the family motto-Never cross a Santangelo. Lucky rules. The Santangelos always come out on top.

An epic family saga filled with love, lust, revenge and passion.

Read the latest installment of Lucky and her family:

[Video] - Republican CNN Debate [FULL DEBATE] Watch w/ Popcorn

 photo f1784a9b-4e00-418b-91e8-b332b445663d_zpspndxpwnx.jpg 

The second GOP Debate was hosted by CNN last Wednesday. Jake Tapper, Dana Bash and Hugh Hewitt were the moderators. I knew going into the debate was going to be entertaining as hell. I literally popped popcorn and enjoyed the messy train wreck that was the GOP debate. Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Scott Walker and a slew of others took to the stage in an attempt to get their agendas across to the American people.

Folks, be very engaged in this election. You cannot afford to sit on the sidelines and think your vote doesn't count. After watching the Republican debate, you should be terrified that even with a "hundred" candidates vying to win the Republican Presidential nomination, the pickings are dangerous to the American people, because of their overall policies they hope to implement, if they "shudder at the thought" become President.

To note, Carly Fiorina, was bumped up to no. 2 behind Trump in the polls after the debate. Dr. Ben Carson went into the debate in the no. 2 spot. By the way, do not be fooled by Carly Fiorina. Her policies are not in the greater good of women. She is FOR the defunding of Planned Parenthood and a slew of other policies that would be a detriment. Fiorina continued to bring up Hillary Clinton's name and bashed her throughout the debate. She acts like she has a juvenile personal vendetta against Hillary Clinton and is begging for a fight.

Trust and believe, Hillary Clinton would squash Carly Fiorina in any debate and any election.

If you were not part of the 22.9 million viewers that watched the debate live...take time and watch it. Hell, if you it again just for the entertainment factor.

 Free entertainment!

[Video] - Idris Elba Addresses Controversial Comments Made by James Bond Author

 photo 6f04ce13-bc8c-4c3f-91c3-e3c9e8a74913_zpstzrhu2qr.jpg 

After the ignorant comments from author, Anthony Horowitz, stating that he believed Idris Elba was "too street" to play James Bond, outrage erupted. Quite frankly Horowitz showed not only was he ignorant but lacked the where with all, to realize that Idris Elba is an ACTOR...he can portray ANY character. He has done so quite well throughout his blazing hot career.

Recently, on The National, Elba spoke about the controversial comments made by Horowitz.

After getting the dragging he so much deserved on social media, Horowitz, issued an apology. As I stated via social media at the time, Idris Elba is booked. I sure bet he isn't worried about Horowitz's bigoted comments. The hella sexiness that is Idris Elba has scripts that need reading and films that are in production.

[Video] - CONGRATS: Kanye West Accepts the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award at the 2015 MTV VMA Awards

Side Note: Kanye West's speech was interesting and real talk. Kanye had the right to speak his mind and voice his opinions. The ridicule he continues to receive is the result of folks who perhaps don't have the faculties to fully comprehend and absorb what the man was stating during his speech.

Kanye West is a brilliant artist who is passionate about his craft and doesn't give a damn if folks like the art or not. He does it because HE likes it and understands that mainstream might be to lowbrow to get it.

Congrats to Kanye West receiving the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award.
