*Emmy-winning writer Lena Waithe has not only been busy promoting her new movie, “Ready Player One” —  she’s also been planning a wedding with her girlfriend, film production executive Alana Mayo.

And now, Waithe is opening up about her wedding planning in a new interview with People.

“It’s a little nutty,” Waithe told People. “I’m trying to balance it out, but I’m really grateful.”

The “Dear White People” producer and “Master of None” actress explained that she and Mayo are trying to keep their nuptials simple and laid-back.

“It’s going to be super small, crazy small. It’s almost like an excuse to have fun with our friends,” she said. “We’re anti-stress. We’re trying to make it not a stressful situation, that’s our goal.”

Back in September, Waithe, who got engaged to Mayo last Thanksgiving, spoke of just how excited she was to one day marry her special lady-love, and what she’d like in a wedding.

“I think it’ll be pretty fly,” Waithe said at the time. “She’s pretty fly. It’ll be small and intimate, honestly, but she’s also like a black Audrey Hepburn; she’s old school classic, and I know I have a bit more of a swaggier style, so we complement each other really well. It’ll be something small, intimate and very personal.”

Meanwhile, Jamie Foxx has revealed that he had an encounter with Suge Knight that all started when the incarcerated, (former) music mogul couldn’t get into one of Jamie’s events.

Foxx recalled the incident on his Foxxhole radio show a while back. According to Jamie, one of his associates inaccurately told Suge that the comedian did not want him at his event. Suge was already standing outside the door waiting to enter so he was pissed that he was denied entry.

Jamie tried to sneak out of the back door and that’s when the story turned really funny (although Jamie probably wasn’t laughing at the time.
