*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

She’s All Grown-up! Samuel L. Jackson’s Daughter is His Splitting Image / Look!

*Samuel L Jackson is not only an amazing actor, he is a family man as he has been married to LaTanya Richardson for about 40 years and has a daughter, Zoe, with her.

The 36-year-old is the spitting image of him, as several pictures have shown over the years. She also seems to have picked up on his dress sense as they have been seen sporting similar styles.

Jackson credits his success to his wife and daughter while referring especially to the time they found him passed out after getting drunk at a friend’s bachelor party.

The actor is grateful that his wife sent him off to rehab when she could have just left him. He claims they are the reason he kept going and finally got clean.

The 71-year-old definitely understands the importance of a present father as he never had one growing up. He said his daughter deserves two parents which is one reason the couple stayed together.

The “Shaft” actor shared that he is still in love with his wife and that is perhaps why they are still together. He also pointed at the things they have in common such as theater as Richardson is a Broadway actress.

Richardson pointed at some other things, such as having a big heart, trusting God, and not letting the sun go down on your anger. She added that you would need to forgive and forget as men are different from women.

The couple has a mantra that they both believe, consider achievable, and work towards, and she suggests that all couples get one. She added that women shouldn’t stop working in order to paint a picture for their kids. More details and other news on our website. Link in BIO Follow @amomama_usa

Mo’Nique gettin’ busy at the gym

*The talented comedian started her weight loss journey in November 2012. After several months of putting in hours at the gym, she lost about 80 pounds.

When she starred in the 1999 sitcom, “The Parkers,” Mo’Nique weighed her heaviest, tipping 300 pounds. By May 2013, the actress had reportedly shed a lot of weight, leaving her at an impressive 218 lbs. She documented her progress on social media in an effort to inspire her fans.

The comedian’s family is one of the greatest motivations that has kept the mother of four returning to the gym, and for her, it is gratifying that it’s all paying off.

In 2018, she revealed in an Instagram post that she was under 200 lbs – a feat she had not managed to pull off since she was 17 years of age.

In the post, Mo’Nique made sure to let her fans know her progress was a result of hard work and persistence rather than going under the knife.
In 2019, she clocked 51 and her waistline seemed as tiny as ever. She shared an inspiring post on her Instagram where she urged fans to join her on her fitness journey.

Now in 2020, she looks as great as ever and because she has no plans to stop, the gorgeous comedian will only keep looking better–something her fans love to see.
