It’s Family Feud taken to the next level!

Steve Harvey is gearing up for Celebrity Family Feud and he promises to “turn up the volume”! HipHollywood spoke to the game show host who stated, “I like a lot of people that are going to celebrities on the show, so it will be fun to watch them get these X’s and not know what’s going on.” But Steve admits, there’s one celeb friend who will be utterly clueless when “survey says” is uttered. “Anthony Anderson will give the dumbest answers in the history of Family Feud,” the funny man revealed.

You can catch Anthony Anderson and his family take on the Braxton’s (Toni, Tamar, Trina, Traci and Towanda) when they kick off the six-episode special Celebrity Family Feud on Sunday, June 26th. Other celebs that will be featured include, Nicey Nash, Holly Robinson Peete, Keke Palmer, Dr. Phil and more. The winning team will be given a chance to win up to $25,000 to donate to a charity of their choice.

Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!

Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.

In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.

“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”

What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.

“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”

Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
