It Feels Good...

It Feels Good…

Like The QUEEN LATIFAH SHOW. Have you been tuning in to the daytime flava? It’s pretty good. Queen is a pisces, so she’s a chameleon by sign rite therefore, that makes her a natural at talking to anyone about anything.

I love the show. This week she had Zoe Saldana on the show, which is interesting because I’ve been wondering whatever happened to the Nina Simone biopic project? I have always been a fan of Zoe’s work and was very verbal about not agreeing with her choice to play Nina Simone in the unauthorized biopic, sometime back. I’m not sure whatever happened to that project, but I want to be clear, that I absolutely love Zoe Saldana as well as Queen Latifah for “putting her on” (giving Zoe a social conversation platform) this week on The Queen Latifah Show – it was some good stuff.

Zoe is preggo with twins! Did you know that? Well, I did not. Did you know that she is starring in THE BOOK OF LIFE and that it is in theaters right now? I did not know that either. Not because I’m not keeping up with the beautiful latina actress from Queens, but because, well… these days, movie trailers get far too little advertisement time on television. When did we decide that movie trailer enticement was no longer necessary on tv as much as it is online and on youtube? Nothing is worse than being force fed a random movie trailer, while desperately trying to get clarification on how to fix an editing software glitch via a youtube HOW TO video.  However, I would love to see a movie trailer on television during a commercial break of SCANDAL, EXTANT, or HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. Bring back enticing movie trailers to network television dear Hollywood. If for no other reason than to increase your bottom line.  After all, isn’t that what it’s all about?

There are a lot of things we would not know of unless it were advertised or unless someone told us, which is why I watch The Queen Latifah Show, The View, The Talk, and as soon as I’ve an additional free daytime DVR slot, I’ll be recording The REAL TALK on BET. Are you watching it? I happened to drop in mid episode one morning during a channel surf and saw Tamar Braxton, Tamera Morrow and Loni Love sitting at the table and it caught my attention. BET is boldly going where no other talk show has gone before and has added a 3rd black woman at the talk show table format. The View was the progressive shiz when they put two black women on deck, but 3? BET is serious about definition. 😉

Daytime TV is doing alright
Diversifying the view beyond mostly white.

I see Rosie Perez is poised pretty nice
as Whoopi continues to serve insight.

It’s important to have diversity within ‘talk show glory,’
or I might not have come-up on Zoe Saldana’s rooted story.

No one has been interviewing Zoe on any kind of show,
so when I think of The Queens courtesy, I yell a resounding “YO!”

Zoe is beautiful, Zoe is bright.
Zoe’s a huge talent in the incoming tide.

Zoe is being offered all types of roles,
some lack match, but most are gold.

The game isn’t free and by all accounts it must be sold.
The Queen did her thing on daytime tv and hosted the talk of Zo’.

The season of FALL is upon us and I’m happy to be Falling into something more comfortable,
I’m Qui
always glad to talk-it-out with thee, because news stations be on ‘that dumpster bull.
