Congrats to Angela Bassett who just received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I thought certainly she had a star before now, but sometimes it’s better late than never. She certainly has paid her dues, and has been in the Hollywood game for a moment. I remember Angela Bassett from of episodes of The Cosby Show.

Top Headline Juice: Diddy, Big Boi, Jurnee Smollett, Vivica Fox

Posted by on Mar 19, 2008 in Celebrity News, MrsGrapevine | 9 comments

1. Vivca Fox will not be coming to a blockbuster near you in yet another straight to DVD release, she will however join the VH-1 list of celeb-reality on the new show, Glam God. Vivica Fox will serve as the host of Glam God, a show that casts 20 stylist competing for a $100,000 contract as a personal stylist to some unknown A-list celebrity. I never thought of Vivica as a trendsetter, but maybe she has an eye for fashion when it comes to others.
 
2. I knew there was a reason why I like this young lady. Jurnee Smollett is in the process of creating a $2 Mill scholarship fund at Wylie College in honor of the late Henrietta Bell Wells, played by Ms. Smollett in the movie The Great Debaters, and in honor of her mother Janet Smollett, a humanitarian and civil rights advocate. With tears in her eyes Smollett said, “I’m told I’m a statistic, I’m told that my young black sisters are disease ridden…but we are greater than what society tells us we are.”
 
3. Diddy says the rumors are false, he did not have anything to do with Tupac being robbed or shot 5 times, despite a recent article published in LA Times that linked Diddy to crime as reported by jail house informants, “The story is a lie. It is beyond ridiculous and completely false.” He maintains that he nor Biggie, “had any knowledge of any attack before, during or after it happened.” Well we know he’s lying about part of the story, we all know he knew of the attack after it happened.
 
4. Big Boi from Outcast adding ballet to his resume. Big Boi and the Atlanta Ballet Dance Compnay have teamed up on a project entiled, ‘big’. [Excerpt] Staged at Atlanta’s historic Fox Theatre, the unprecedented collaboration between Atlanta Ballet and Big Boi, marks the first time hip-hop and ballet have been combined on this level. Fusing Big Boi’s own sound of music with Atlanta’s professional ballet, the show will feature new and never heard material intertwined with the classical masterpiece of Verdi’s La Traviata…[Source]
