*Actress and activist #AmandaSeales recently discussed a variety of topics including the recent conversations on Latinx representation in the media, the current racial and political climate, and Amanda’s new comedy game show Smart, Funny, and Black.

Amanda Seales revealed some of the reasons why she left the talk show, citing one instance:

“I left “#TheReal” because it was breaking my spirit. I was being asked to not talk about certain things that felt like a betrayal to my people and to me as a person. And then on top of that, I didn’t want to be somewhere where I felt like people weren’t being honest with me, where people felt scared of me because of my Black woman-ness.”

Actress and activist #AmandaSeales recently discussed a variety of topics including the recent conversations on Latinx representation in the media, the current racial and political climate, and Amanda’s new comedy game show Smart, Funny, and Black. Amanda Seales revealed some of the reasons why she left the talk show, citing one instance, “I left “#TheReal” because it was breaking my spirit. I was being asked to not talk about certain things that felt like a betrayal to my people and to me as a person. And then on top of that, I didn’t want to be somewhere where I felt like people weren’t being honest with me, where people felt scared of me because of my Black woman-ness. I did a Smart, Funny, and Black game on “The Real.” And I was so excited to get to play a Smart, Funny, and Black game on “The Real.” And they assigned it to the one white woman producer. But we have three Black women producers and one Black guy producer. So, I was like, ‘Why are you producing this?’ And she said, ‘Oh because so-and-so assigned it to me.’ And I said, ‘But, why would you be producing this? You’re a white woman. You don’t understand what we’re going to be talking about.’ Now, she could have said, ‘Well, actually I grew up in this culture, if that was the case.’ But I said to her, ‘Do you even know what we’re going to be talking about?’ And she said, ‘No, I just figured you were going to talk about it and I would just write it down.’ So I said, ‘Am I going to get a producer credit?’ Because to me, you assign the different segments to people who are going to be able to produce it to the best ability. And it’s like if we were doing a segment on the Sabbath dinner, she was the one Jewish person on staff, she should be in charge of that segment because she has the most expertise on that.” The ‘Insecure’ actress continued, “So basically, she went crying to somebody saying that I attacked her. Even though I spoke to her literally in this tone of voice.” Full story on #theJasmineBRAND

*Although the soon-to-be-former couple just filed last month, the divorce proceedings between #TracyMorgan and his estranged wife #MeganWollover is heating up.

*We haven’t heard much from CeeLo Green this year but for some reason, he has decided to pop out to give his two cents on female rappers.

In an exclusive interview with Far Out, the 45-year-old musician shared his love of old pop music and offered his thoughts on the current genre while sharing what he thinks it is lacking.

“We are adults. There should be a time and a place for adult content,” Green started off. “As adults and artists, we should at least attempt to be each other’s accountability partners in some regard,” he said. “The stereotypes that are celebrated and perpetuated, ultimately make the perception a reality. It is disenfranchising and it has caused a great deal of problems.”

Nicki could be effective in so many other constructive ways, but it feels desperate.” He then went on to criticize both Cardi and Megan who recently dropped their new hit, “WAP.” “Attention is also a drug and competition is around… Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion, they are all more or less doing similar salacious gesturing to kinda get into position. I get it, the independent woman and being in control, the divine femininity and sexual expression. I get it all but it comes at what cost?” #Socialites, what are your thoughts on this? 🧐 sound off! 👇🏾 ___________________________________________________ Read more at hollywoodunlocked.com 📸: Instagram / Getty Images __________________________________________________ If you have a tip or suggestion, or want to talk to us about this story, Text the word “TIP” to 1-310-388-6463
