Exclusive: Meagan Good Admits All The Gossip Gets To Her

Published

Actress Meagan Good has kept the blogs buzzing this summer: from her controversial dress at the BET Awards to those pregnancy rumors, it seems like everyone is talking about stunning star.

But while the actress shot down some of the gossip and defended her wardrobe choice in an exclusive interview with HipHollywood, she also revealed that she still has a hard time dealing with people questioning her Christianity. Good is married to DeVon Franklin, a film producer and minister in Los Angeles.

“It’s funny because he’s not effected the way that I am. I’m like, ‘Baby, they’re talking about me.’ And he’s just like, ‘Honey, it’s OK,'” Good explained.

The actress, who recently dyed her hair purple, told us at Nick Cannons 3rd Annual Back to School Drive that people have her relationship with Franklin all wrong.

“I think people misconstrue. They think I’m married to a pastor, which means we have a congregation,” explained Good. “I mean, who knows we might, but my husband, he loves me for me, every part of me.”

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

on

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.
