    Other people can comfort and console us in our grief, They can be part of the healing but only after all the waves of mourning have washed through our lives, Comfort can come only after we can accept death as a reality…and only as Jesus brings us to the realization that physical death is not the end. May God Cont. To Bless The Family

    I have listened to Bobby’s music since childhood and was always amazed at his ability to sing and play musicial instrumentation the way he did as Bobby was truly gifted. I understood much better as I matured both naturally and musically why Sam Cooke contracted him at such a young age: Bobby was truly gifted as an Artist and Performer. May he rest in Peace as I know that he was a believer in Christ (listen to his rendition of ‘Yes, Jesus Loves Me’ on his “Check It Out” album from the early seventies). My prayers are with his family and all those left behind.

    Bobby Womack, I loved all of his music – I first know of his music when Sam Cooke’s got killed. I was very young living in L A near the hotel where Sam was killed. I always kept up with the story when Bobby married Sam wife Barbara. Bobby music helped me throw trouble times then and now, I have all of his music he put out and I will always play his music. I hope a movie about Bobby life will come later.

    When I first got to LA, Bobby was like a big brother to me, we worked out in gym at the then (Beverly Hills Health Club), played basketball and ran long distance together. I was blessed to be at his home at times when he would all of a sudden break out his guitar and play and sing a new song. I was so glad to have had the chance to pay my respects at his wonderful home going. He was a friend and I loved him very much. Ernest Harden Jr.

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



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.”
