The Whitney Houston biopic is being directed by Angela Bassett and has been in production for the last two weeks in Los Angeles. Former America’s Top Model contestant, Yaya DaCosta has been cast to play Whitney, and Belize born actor Arlen Escarpata has been cast to play Bobby Brown. R&B singer Deborah Cox, who has often said Whitney was her mentor, has recently been added to be a part of the film. The film will showcase Whitney’s music, but Ms. Cox will re-record any featured songs in the movie.
As of yet, Lifetime has only obtained permission from the music publishers. According to a representative from Lifetime, Cox will supply the “vocal tracks” for the movie. The Lifetime representative also stated, “the music
What can we say about Carl Leo Jr.? He is a jet setter just like his mom. Evelyn Lozada recently shared a picture of her son with Instagram fans, and the little one appeared to be completely relaxed on the family’s private jet. “My lil man’s first flight,” tweeted Evelyn. “Stuntin.”
The Reality TV star does not let milestones that baby Leo experiences go unnoticed. Evelyn told media about her son’s sleeping habits just six days after he was born.
Normally I think celebrity kids are off limits, except when they dress as white batman at a very high profile wedding.

Traci Braxton is the loud outspoken younger sister of Toni Braxton, and is also a cast member of the hit reality show The Braxton Family Values. On the show Traci is often portrayed as the “wild child” or the “black Sheep” of the family. Throughout every season of the show, Traci has made it very clear that she would like to pursue a music career that doesn’t involve singing back-up for her older sister.
Well now it looks like Traci is going to get her chance to show the world what she can do, according to S2S Magazine. Traci recently revealed that she has signed a record deal with E One, and that she has a single that will be dropping later this month. According to Traci, her sound is a mixture of Mary J Blige and Jill Scott, and she has some pretty heavy hitters helping her out with her debut album. “Tank wrote a couple of songs on my album, and Raheem DeVaughn is doing a duet with me,” Traci said while at this year’s Essence Music Fest. Traci’s album will drop October 14th, and the new season of The Braxton Family Values is set to air in August on WEtv.
Looks like Beyoncé may have another sibling crawling out of the woodwork. Beyoncé’s father, Mathew Knowles, has been hit with yet another paternity suit.
