*While speaking with Chicago Tribune’s Nina Metz, “Girlfriends” star Reggie Hayes spoke about the classic sitcom that recently started streaming on Netflix as well as many other things including his health and acting career.

The actor who gained fame for his role as William Jerrome, reveals that his life has been pretty rough, 20 years after the hit show premiered. On Friday, the Chicago native was hospitalized for congestive heart failure in Los Angeles.

Hayes explained to Metz, “We’re still not sure what’s going on, I gotta take more tests. But I have congestive heart failure and it was difficult to breathe. Here in L.A., the sky has been orange with smoke (because of wildfires) and it was just really terrible. So I was in the hospital overnight, they were having trouble getting my blood pressure back down. Seems like the more they look, the more problems they find.” However, Hayes noted, that “the good thing is, I don’t have the coronavirus.”

Aside from his health, he also talked about his life after “Girlfriends,” which also stars Tracee Ellis Ross, Golden Brooks, Jill Marie Jones, and Persia White. Hayes, who won the NAACP Image Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series three times said he has struggled to find substantive work on, and off, screen. “It’s not my most proud time,” Hayes reflected, adding he hasn’t gotten many opportunities.

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.

*In a recent interview, #TylerPerry opens up about reconciling with #SpikeLee.

As far as Spike Lee‘s former criticism of some of his characters where he referred to them as “coonery and buffoonery,” Tyler says that his critique in particular kind of hurt.

Despite this, he still named one of the soundstages on his Tyler Perry Studios lot after the filmmaker: “If any criticisms stung, it would have been his, because I had so much respect and admiration for him. People’s opinions are their opinions, but that doesn’t negate the fact of the work that he’s done. And he’s due the honor of having a stage named after him and more than that.”

Tyler continues and explains that Spike Lee actually reached out to him following an interview Tyler had with another media mogul, Oprah Winfrey, where they discussed a feud similar to theirs between Harlem Renaissance writers Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston. Tyler says Spike decided to come to Atlanta to speak with him directly:

“I opened the door. I said, ‘Come in here, so I can beat your ass.’ And [Lee] said, ‘Fair enough.’ And we sat and we had a conversation. … He laid out his views and his opinions, which I respected. And he heard mine, and he respected them. So we can both exist in the same world with very different …”
