I’m sure you guys remember last year when pictures of Oprah and Terrance Howard surfaced of them in character on a movie set? I’m sure you guys may also remember the subsequent interview where Terrence Howard shared how he enjoyed touching on Oprah’s tig-ole-bitties. Well, all of that was for this new Lee Daniels film called ‘The Butler’. The movie is based on the true story of Eugene Allen (played by Forest Whitaker) who served under 8 presidents from 1952-1986. The Film was shot on location in New Orleans and also starts Lenny Kravitz, Mariah Carey, Jesse Williams, Cuba Gooding Jr, Jane Fonda, and some other well know actors. Read the rest of this entry »

Complete Devastation To The Nation

Ewww chile, I wonder how Gayle feels about all of this.
