Episode 280

11th December 2020

Mario Lopez is looking a little too finger looking good as a sexy Colonel Sanders in a new Lifetime movie. Is Tara Reid an inspiration or just on drugs in her latest casting attempt? Mo’Nique is resurfacing her pain and hurt with Black Hollywood again, and while we’re rooting for her… she makes it hard sometimes. Letitia Wright is our latest celeb to “step in it’ with her tweeting of vaccine conspiracies, and her response to the debate it naturally brought up, was.. not great. In the main Korners, we are in need of some healing and inspired by the “ok” movie Best of Enemies we look at how this inspired by a true story’s use of Charattes, could be an effective tool for us to use and learn from in bridging massive divides and create community change. Then it’s storytime with actor Desiree Rogers who’s played some queer historical legends like Alberta Hunter, Lorraine Hansberry, and Mable Hampton, and gives us a historical crash course on these GOATs and her process.
