Nice...Happy for Morris...Brother hit hard times for a minute & kept pushing...Blessings

YaYa..i thought she should've won ANTM over Eva but its her stank attitude thats unattractive.

Oh this sounds interesting. I will definitely have to check it out. Yaya is doing big things and expanding her acting resume. Super happy to see she's found a career outside of reality tv - I'm looking at you, Eva lol

I am all for it if they bring some original storylines to the table.

No my husband is on the DL stuff.
No interracial love triangles
No teacher student sex scandals

Be original please.

@10:01 You did not have to bash Eva! I'm happy they're both successful.

I used to think Morris was so sexy until my mom pointed out that my brother favors him. And he does. That ruined it for me. So, I'm no longer attracted to him.

I will check it out as long as the acting is good and the story is fresh. I am not familiar with the book.

Buy the book on Amazon. It's a good read and lots of history of black upperclass.

You need to stop it!! Your mother wears dark shades and walks with a seeing eye dog. As a matter of fact your brother looks like your mother's dog.

If Morris or Gabrielle Union are in any tv show, it will be cancelled.

Happy for YaYa. She has worked consistently since ANTM. She stays low and keeps moving!
