Tracee Puts Her Spin on Her Mom’s 1981 Work that Body Video
Tracee Ellis Ross has recreated the video for Work that Body, the 1981 single recorded by her mother Diana Ross.
Those of you old enough will remember the early 80’s as the absolute height of the aerobics fitness craze. It gave actress Jane Fonda a much needed career boost, and spawned such iconic tunes as Olivia Newton John’s Physical.
Diana’s Work that Body video, recorded when she was 36 and already the mother of three, added to the craze, as well as spawning another hit for Ross to add to her ever-expanding collection.

We hear from a source within the “Girlfriends” writing camp that the CW has decided to cancel the series immediately instead of bringing it back for a ninth season. While no official announcement had been made as of press time, we were told the CW will not even film this season’s remaining nine episodes that were suspended during the writer’s strike. Ironically, news of the show’s cancellation comes just as the strike has ended and the writing staff was preparing to return to work. We were informed by one of the writers yesterday that Monday night’s one-hour block of new episodes served as the show’s last. “Girlfriends” became the longest-running live-action comedy series currently on network television with the debut of its current season in October 2007. The writers strike suspended production after only 13 of 22 ordered episodes were completed.
