Angela Bassett & Forest Whitaker Show Off Their Singing Skills in ‘Black Nativity’

Published

Angela Bassett & Forest Whitaker are proving they are more than just award winning actors. They can also sing … and they are showing off their skills in the new Kasi Lemmons directed film Black Nativity.

HipHollywood sat down with the two during the films junket and found out how they liked singing alongside the likes of Mary J. Bige, Jennifer Hudson and Tyrese.

“There were a little nerves at first,” admitted Bassett. “But then we just had to go back to where we are confident and comfortable, and that’s acting … and realize that we are telling a story as opposed to just singing.”

But they did have a little help and coaching from Raphael Saadiq who produced the music for the film. “He would help us get there,” laughed Bassett.

In the film Bassett and Whitaker play a pastor and first lady who learn the true meaning of faith and family when their estranged grandson (played by Jacob Lattimore) spends Christmas with them.

Check out the rest of our interview with the cast below.

Black Nativity is in theaters Thanksgiving Day.

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy

Published

Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
