Exclusive: Faith Evans: “I Wasn’t Happy With Season 2 of R&B Divas”



Yep you read that right! Faith Evans was not feeling season 2 of R&B Divas.

But, are we surprised?

HipHollywood caught up with Evans and Nicci Gilbert at the premiere for R&B Divas: L.A. where the two executive producers shared their thoughts on season 2 and all the drama that went down.

“I’m happy with the success, and I’m very thankful to God for those things”, Faith expressed. “But we weren’t as involved creatively, so I think things took a turn differently than what we had in mind.”

Faith did not attend the reunion show because of  “family issues” and appeared to be irritated with the girls and their constant bickering every time she appeared on the show.

Gilbert, who was at the center of much of the tension season 2, offered her explanation, telling us, “The bottom line is we didn’t go as far as some of the other shows … you saw real reactions to real things. What you did not always see is a complete picture of what we were reacting to.”

Gilbert added, “The good part about that is you can always show something go bad and then go good again.”

We hope so!


Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First



If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
