Queen Latifah

Eh, another talk show. I used to love some Queen Latifah.  I know folks need to grow and evolve, but Hollywood Latifah has been blah to me. Bring back the regal queen!!

I guess I need to leave the late 80’s/early 90’s behind 😦 Queen Latifah’s new talk show premieres on September 16th. It’s odd she’s hosting another show, as her first talk show failed, and that was during a time when folks still watched talk shows. Oh well, good luck to her this time around. I won’t be watching:

 

 

Lee Thompson Young (February 1, 1984 – August 19, 2013

I was shocked when I read this headline on Yahoo!

Former Disney Channel Star Lee Thompson Young Found Dead

What!! While I never knew the young man’s name, I immediately recognized him from “The Hills Have Eyes 2” (yes, i watch movies like that). Even in that crappy film, I thought he did a good job with what he had to work with. He was articulate and charismatic. Also, he was very handsome. I felt sinful looking at that young man (glad to know he was a bit older).

I was surprised to read that Young was a former Disney star (maybe it’s because I don’t have kids). I know that he was on the ABC show “Flash Forward,” as well. So much potential for this young man. It’s sad to know that it was possibly a suicide. It just goes to show you never know what’s going on in folks lives.

RIP Lee Thompson Young  😦
