Stacey Dash spent the night partying with her celebrity crush!

Monday, Stacey celebrated the Emmys at the FOX and FX Emmy Party in Downtown Los Angeles and partied for the first time with none other than the O’Reilly Factor‘s, Bill O’Reilly. Stacey, who has recently secured a position as a paid contributor to the Fox News Team, revealed last month to Access Hollywood Live that her celebrity crush is 64-year-old O’Reilly. “He is [my celebrity crush],” she stated. “[I’m attracted to] the strength, the power, the intelligence, the wit.”

This was the first time that the two have met face-to-face and Stacey took to Twitter to let fans know her excitement:

“IT FINALLY HAPPENED. I MET HIM! Bill and me.@oreillyfactor @FoxNews,” Dash captioned the following picture on Instagram.

But that is not all, she followed by showing a picture of herself talking with O’Reily captioning it:

“Me and Bill debating #Hollywood and the #Emmys. He seems impressed with my argument. @oreillyfactor@FoxNews @fxnetworks

And since Bill O’Reilly has been so vocal about his feelings about the protests and media coverage surrounding the shooting of Mike Brown in Ferguson, MO, we wanted to get Stacey’s thoughts. HipHollywood caught up with Stacey on the carpet before she entered the party and wanted to get her take on the whole situation. “I just think its a tragedy for our nation and I look forward to the facts coming out,” Stacey told HipHollywood cameras.

She’s Gotta Have It: Is Ilfenesh Hadera Spike Lee’s New Muse?

Published

We all know Spike Lee loves working with the same actors over and over again. And in some cases new up-and-comers who go on to be Hollywood A-listers. Think Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Rosario Dawson.

Now it seems it’s Ilfenesh Hadera’s turn. The actress of Ethiopian decent has worked with Spike Lee four times: in the 2011 Mike Tyson TV movie Da Brick, in 2013’s Oldboy, in Chiraq playing Ms. McCloud and in his upcoming Netflix series She’s Gotta Have It.

Hadera told us she believes it’s because of Lee’s commitment to diversity that he tends to hire the same actors multiple times.

“If you look at his body of work you see he’s worked with Rosario over and over, [John] Turturro over and over, Mekhi Phifer over and over so he finds talent, new talent and gives them a chance and if more directors did that maybe we would be more represented in the media … God bless him for that,” she said.

Now with 30+ years and countless films under his belt, Lee is bringing his first feature, She’s Gotta Have It, back to life, in a 10-episode Netflix binge debuting Nov. 23.

Hadera, who plays Opal Gilstrap in the series, told us Lee had hinted that he would be bringing his 1986 directorial debut to Netflix and wanted her to be apart of it.

“We had worked together a lot and he had been giving me little hints that this was in the works so I was like let me go back and watch [She’s Gotta Have It] again.”

Like the original, SGHI follows Nola Darling (played by DeWanda Wise) a twenty-something woman living in Brooklyn, New York exploring her sexual identity as she juggles a host of colorful suitors.

As for if this is Hadera’s final time working with Lee, we think not. 2017 has already been an amazing year for the 5’10 beauty with roles on the big and small screen in Baywatch, Billions and Master Of None.
