David Alan Grier & Cast Give ‘Peeples’ Two Snaps & A Circle!

Over the years the HipHollywood staff has done tons of junkets but there hasn’t been one quite as fun as Peeples.

The cast had us doubled over laughing as they talked (and sang) about the film and cutting up on set.

“It took us much longer than it should have to film this movie, because we were laughing consistently and singing constantly,” said Kerry Washington, who also revealed that she was excited to leave behind the drama of her TV series Scandal for a bit to star in a comedy.

“We laughed all the way between set-ups,” added David Alan Grier. “There was a piano and Craig was always egging us on…it was a lot of fun”

Written and directed by Tina Gordon Chism (ATL, DrumLine) and presented by none other than Tyler Perry, the film follows Wade Walker (played by Craig Robinson) as he attempts to fit in with his girlfriends family during their annual reunion.

Grier plays Kerry’s overprotective father, and of course we couldn’t help but ask what the hilarious men of “Men on Film” he once played alongside Daman Wayans on In Living Color would give Peeples. Check it out!

Tracee Ellis Ross Spills The Real Tea On ‘Black-ish’ Wage Demands + Deon Cole, Jenifer Lewis Weigh In

Published

Tracee Ellis Ross is unveiling the truth behind recent reports that she was demanding more money for her time spent on ABC’s Black-ish.

Just last week, The Hollywood Reporter suggested Tracy was in negotiations and asking for more for not only going into her fourth season on the hit show, but because her male co-host, Anthony Anderson, makes significantly more than she does.

The report also claimed that if she didn’t make any headway, she might step away and consider guest starring on other shows.

Over the weekend, Ellis addressed the reports and didn’t exactly deny the claims. In a lengthy statement shared on social media, Ross said that she “was in renegotiation, like many actors find themselves in during the fourth season of a successful show.”

She continued, “I wanted to be compensated in a way that matches my contribution to a show that I love for many reasons, including the opportunity it allows me to reshape what it is to be a fully realized black woman on TV.”

She did, however, confirm that claims there were threats are false. “I wish I could have been called by the reporter to confirm that,” she wrote.

Tracy’s statement falls right in line with what her co-stars, Deon Cole and Jenifer Lewis, explained to HipHollywood on Sunday night during the 2018 SAG Awards.

When asked about Ross’ desire to earn more money, Lewis said, “Tracee should have more money, you should have more money, every woman should have more money because we’ve been in the background too long. ”

Television’s favorite mom continued, “We’ve got grab her by the pussy in the White House and women are not standing for it anymore. Black-ish is a very important show, we are dealing with all the pressing issues of our time … This is the time to look it in the face and address it and come through the fire. Women are not taking it anymore.”

Deon also shut down rumors that Ross would be taking a back seat, telling us “There’s two sides to every story. Tracee is fine, everybody is fine, and everybody is getting paid. Everybody is eating. It’s all love I promise you.”
