Juanita Moore, Groundbreaking Actress, Dies

By Mark Memmdott

“Juanita Moore, a groundbreaking actress and an Academy Award nominee for her role as Lana Turner’s black friend in the classic weeper Imitation of Life, has died,” The Associated Press writes.

The wire service adds that “actor Kirk Kelleykahn, her grandson, said that Moore collapsed and died Wednesday at her home in Los Angeles. She was 99, according to Kelleykahn. Accounts of her age have differed over the years.”

The Los Angeles Times calls Moore “a pioneering African American actress.” She was “only the fifth African American ever to receive an Academy Award nomination, a rare honor in a racially divided era when actors of color seldom claimed rewarding roles.”Imitation of Life, the Times says, “is a subversive masterwork of socially conscious cinema that gained a cultish popularity in later years.”

BET’s Celebrities blog writes that:

Amanda Bynes is going to need long term hospitalization for at least a year according to her doctors, a source told Radar Online. “Her diagnosis is complex, and the appropriate drug cocktail to treat her hasn’t been achieved…Lynn needs to be granted permanent conservatorship because Amanda wouldn’t agree to continue with treatment,” the source says.

It’s devastating that Amanda is going through this but at least she is getting the proper treatment and luckily has the financial resources to live and good life with her illness. Wishing you well, girl.

bagladyboutique:

Thank you Drew for not going all Hollywood and decided to cater to the common folks.

Drew Barrymore is the latest celebrity to create her own makeup collection Flower which debuted this month exclusively at Wal- Mart.  Her over 180 piece collection includes eye, face, lip and nail products which are available at 1,500+ Wal-Mart locations. What is great about this collection is that it’s cruelty free(not tested on animals) and the price point is beyond amazing- nothing is over $15!  It is luxury products at mass market prices.  According to the press release the collection is “formulated with the same quality ingredients found in department store luxury brands, but sold for a fraction of the price”.

How did Barrymore produce such high quality products at such fair prices????  Well Barrymore and team chose to skip paid advertising and rely solely on blogs, social media, word of mouth and Barrymore’s popularity to do the “advertising”,which  frees up the usual 20-30% that would fund advertising.  That money is…

#KarenCallsIt: Will Scandal Return To ABC?

Originally posted on 106.7 WTLC:

Great news for Scandal fans….Kerry Washington and cast have been given the green light for season two. I’m so relieved!

ABC has been cautious with the Shonda Rhimes political soap. But in the wake of its reasonably steady performance on Thursdays this fall, Scandal is now getting an extra nine episodes and its first full season. (Scandal is averaging 8.1 million viewers and a 2.5 in adults 18-49, plus a hearty 45 percent DVR boost).

Follow the show on twitter at @ScandalABC and let Kerry how happy you are the show is returning!

Derptastic: Actress Kerry Washington to the DNC: ‘Politics is thinking about you!’

Originally posted on Twitchy:

Wow. Who knew? Politics are just like Bill Clinton’s speech last night: a living, breathing organism.

The Touré-endorsed Juliaaddressed the Democratic National Convention today and let fly one of the most memorably lame lines of the conference so far:

Look, I get it. Whether it’s school, work, family, we’ve all got a lot on our minds. People say to me, “I’m just too busy to think about politics.” But here’s the thing: You may not be thinking about politics, but politics is thinking about you.

Awwww … warm fuzzies for everyone! Everything’s peachy keen, because we all belong to the government, and politics care. They care. Like a big brother, you might say.

Washington’s speech certainly had its fair share of admirers:
