Making it clear that it was "all love," comedian Mike Epps' hilarious parody of Cleveland hero Charles Ramsey is sure to cause all laughs.
There has been a lot of chatter up and down the interwebs about whether or not Ramsey has been getting the respect that he deserves for his heroic rescue of Amanda Berry, 27, which led to the rescues of Gina Dejesus, 23, Michelle Knight, 32, and Berry's 6-year-old daughter.

Music insiders are chattering about Beyoncé expecting her second child with husband Jay-Z. Multiple sources told us after the Met Gala last week that the singer, who is currently in the middle of a world tour, is pregnant. Bey wore a Givenchy gown with a high, belted waist that carefully camouflaged her midsection, but pictures have emerged on blogs of what looks like a baby bump from recent tour dates.

Let’s file this under “Bizarre Casting News.” The Huffington Post is reporting that producer W Lance Reynolds wants Rihanna for an upcoming biopic on Josephine Baker. Reynolds says:
“Rihanna is one of the most talented performers of this millennium and with her unique acting and performing abilities, I have no doubt she will bring Josephine back to life on the big screen.”

It’s one thing to share certain characteristics with an iconic figure like Josephine Baker, but another to be able to act them out believably on the big screen. I mean, would you really cast Beyonce in a Tina Turner movie remake?
If you want to see real acting, do yourself a favor and rent HBO’s “The Josephine Baker Story” (1991) starring Lynn Whitfield, who an Emmy for her work.

Even though it’s been four years since audiences embraced her stunning portrayal of Lt. Nyota Uhura in the blockbuster reboot of “Star Trek,” actress Zoe Saldana still can’t quite put into words how grateful she is to play once again the iconic role originated by Nichelle Nichols nearly 50 years ago.
“This was a role that I was so privileged to get in the first place, so to find out I was going to be doing it moving forward made me feel super ecstatic and very blessed,” Saldana told me in a recent call from London. “One, because my mom is a ‘Star Trek’ fan, but also because I met Nichelle Nichols and got her blessing and some amazing pointers. Because of that, I was able to run wild with it.”
