Fox Orders New Drama Starring Angela Bassett
Angela Bassett is coming to Fox. According to published reports, the American Horror Story actress will be teaming up with the show’s producers, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, for a new series titled 911. The as yet unannounced show will reportedly be unveiled at the network’s Upfront event next week and debut as a mid-season replacement in early 2018.
The Second Annual BET Honors were held last night in Washington DC at the Warner Theatre. This year’s show was hosted by actress Gabrielle Union and paid tribute to such luminaries as B. Smith, Mary J. Blige, Judith Jameson, and many others. The night’s biggest surprise guest however turned out to be singer Whitney Houston, who presented an award to actor/director Tyler Perry. Singers Monica and Keyshia Cole were also on hand to perform and pay tribute to Mary J. Blige.
Last night was a very stylish night at the “Notorious” movie premiere in New York City. Despite most of the ladies stepping out in dark colors, the artist partly known as Beyoncé arrived wearing an off-the-shoulder Donna Karan dress with matching sequin wrap, metallic clutch, chandelier earrings, and platform YSL sandals. Though the hair is a bit messy from her St. Bart’s vacay, she still looks fab in that color. Cassie was the cutest thing on the scene, sporting a créme and black Givenchy jacket, with emroidered detailing, and cutout platform heels. Ciara looked every bit a model, as she posed sexily in her leopard-print Christian Louboutin pumps. I mean seriously, who else could make leather look this good? — not too many! Oh, and I LOVE her side-swept bangs.
