I’ve got a ton of pics from the 41st Annual NAACP Image Awards show but this is by far my favorite of them all! Comedian Chris Rock took a moment to grab a handful of “Precious” actress Gabourey Sidibe onstage at the show. It was all in fun and the two shared a few classic memorable photos:
The movie “Precious” won 6 image awards including Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director and Outstanding Motion Picture.

Chris Rock is never one to hold his tongue. We all know that 1st hand after hearing him say that Oprah resembled a slave during his recent appearance on her show to promote his Good Hair movie. Now Rock is speaking up on behalf of Golf legend Tiger Woods and is holding no punches.
The media has been unapologetic about searching for answers in Tiger’s bizarre accident as speculation grew about Woods rumored love triangle between his wife Elin and a woman named Rachel Uchitel. Most (even I) jumped to the conclusion that Elin wielded a nine-iron after confronting Tiger about the affair but recent reports suggest that it may not have been a domestic situation at all and Woods (who was incoherent at the scene) may have been under the influence of prescription drugs.
Monday night on the red carpet at the Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York a group of reporters asked Rock his take on Tiger Woods’ single-SUV crash expecting him to co-sign with the media spectacle of the case. However, Rock fought back for Tiger in classic Chris Rock fashion:
“I don’t have advice for anybody,” he declared. “Nope. He got in a car accident. What the f*ck!? You guys are the news. You’re supposed to report the news. A guy crashed his car. You’re making up sh*t. So are you reporting the news or are you making the news?”
Great question Chris. I vote for the latter. Check out the full video below: Continue Reading…
Chris Rock has just been hit with a $5 Million dollar lawsuit over his upcoming Good Hair documentary. According to TMZ, Regina Kimbell is accusing Rock of stealing his idea from her 2005 documentary, “My Nappy Roots” and says that she showed him her film back in 2007 on the set of his TV series, “Everybody Hates Chris”. She has since filed suit in U.S. District Court in downtown L.A., and seeks no less than $5 million dollars!
Kimbell’s documentary features celebs who discuss styles like the conk, the Afro, the Jheri curl and dreadlocks while Rock’s film also uses celebs to look at the efforts black women use to get that European look. Check out a snippet from Kimbell’s “My Nappy Hair” below and judge for yourself: Continue Reading…
In case you missed it, here are a few clips from Oprah’s “Good Hair” show yesterday. The show delved into the processes Black women go through and Oprah invited Chris Rock to share scenes from his new documentary “Good Hair.” Beyonce’s baby sis also appeared, sharing her story of why she decided to rock a low cut. In a surprise revelation, So told Oprah that she used to spend upwards of $50,000 on her hair before chopping it all off.
Check out what Solange had to say about her choice to go au naturale as well as a some behind the scenes footage from the taping below:
Hulk Hogan totally relates to OJ Simpson’s murderous rampage against his ex-wife. You see, Hulk has been dealing with a messy divorce and seeing his wife Linda shack up with a much younger man (moving the dude into the home purchased with Hulk’s wrestling dough) has got to take it’s toll on the old guy.
“I could have turned everything into a crime scene, like OJ, cutting everybody’s throat. You live half a mile from the 20,000 sq ft home you can’t go to anymore, you’re driving through downtown Clearwater and see a 19-year-old boy driving your Escalade, and you know that a 19-year-old boy is sleeping in your bed, with your wife… I totally understand OJ. I get it.” (Source)

I guess he’s been sitting at home watching old Chris Rock comedy skits. I can see him now, co-signing with Rock’s “I ain’t sayin’ he shoulda killed her…but I understand!”
Check out O.J.’s newest mugshot taken just days ago following his October 2008 conviction on armed robbery and kidnapping charges in a Las Vegas district court. Simpson, 61, was immediately taken into custody at the Clark County Detention Center after the jury verdict was read. Sentencing is scheduled for December 5, 2008 and O.J. is facing a MINIMUM of five years behind bars. Karma is a muthaf*$cker!!
We all have our burdens to bear, but O.J.’s life seems to be a testament to what can happen when you do wrong. It’s possible that O.J. could end up spending the rest of his life in a Nevada state prison. Beating the system is one thing…but how far can you possibly go without fear of retribution?
I’m not one to speak on the inaccuracies of our justice system because I for one HATE seeing our Black men locked up over BS. Hell…I’m still pissed over Michael Vick! O.J. dodged a major bullet once and could have very well lived a quiet life of seclusion with his new white woman of choice…but what did he do? Went out and acted a fool every chance he got. On that note…I’ll cosign with Chris Rock’s assessment of the Simpson murder trial. “I’m not sayin it’s right…but I understand!”
