Paula Patton has officially returned to Twitter.

The actress took a two-year break from the social media website and now, the beauty is ready to mingle with fans again.

The mother of one shared her first post in two years on Tuesday night, writing: “Please forgive my long absence! Feeling so grateful for every second of this life. If any of you are still out there, thank you & I’m sorry!”


The star has also been quiet on Instagram, but made a triumphant return on Thanksgiving. “Please forgive my long absence,” she wrote. “Feeling so very thankful for every second of this life we get to live and if anyone of you are still out there…thank you & I’m sorry!”

She added, “My family has been on my case all day. I hope you all have had a great Thanksgiving!!!”

The actress, meanwhile, has been having a blast on the social media website, and hasn’t exactly had a shortage of content. Over the past week, the 41-year-old, who is also now sporting blonde locks, has shared images from her workouts, the zoo, the farmers’ market and even a to-do list.




It’s worth noting that this is not the first time Patton has disappeared from the spotlight. In 2014, the Los Angeles native took a break from Hollywood after her tragic split from now-ex-husband, Robin Thicke.

The good news is, we don’t foresee the “Baggage Claim” star pulling a disappearing act again any time soon. HipHollywood can confirm that the beauty just wrapped an independent thriller called Stranded, alongside Laz Alonso, Omar Epps and director, Deon Taylor. So, we can look forward to that.

In the movie, Patton is not exactly the sweet character we often see her portray. “It was a completely different experience working with Paula this time,” Alonso, who’s worked with the actress before, told HipHollywood while at the EBONY Power 100 Gala. “We hated each other’s guts in this film. It was hard because she’s a method actress and I’m method on set, so we really weren’t getting along very much.”

He added, “But that’ll always be my friend. Once she threw the wrap party, it was all water under the bridge. We are back to being good friends again.”

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs



If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
