Dish Nation has added a new member to their already stellar cast. It’s Da Brat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat. That’s right, the female emcee has been announced as the FOX show’s new co-host.
The rapper began guest hosting last summer alongside the show’s creator Rickey Smiley, Headkrack, Gary with da Tea, Rock T, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s, Porsha Williams and is now here to stay.
“Since the first day I filled in on Dish Nation, it felt comfortable and there was a natural chemistry,” Brat said in a statement. “The amazingly talented personalities that I’m surrounded by every day make me thrive to be better.”
She added, “I am so grateful that Rickey Smiley gave me the opportunity to do his morning show and ecstatic to be a part of the Dish Nation family. I’ve had an incredible career since 1994 and I feel like it’s just the beginning all over again. Thank you Dish Nation family!”
Stephen Brown, EVP of Programming and Development, FOX Television Stations added, “We are very excited to have Da Brat officially join the Dish Nation team. Having been a celebrated rap artist for over two decades, Da Brat brings an authentic voice to the world of entertainment news. Once she began guest hosting, we knew right away we had to make her a permanent member of the Dish family.”
Shawntae Harris, the rapper’s legal name, first hit the scene in the early 90’s with her debut album, Funkdafied. The success of the LP led to the rapper becoming the first female solo rap act to have a platinum-selling album.
Congrats to the star.
Halle Berry & Her Wig Return For L.A. Riots Drama ‘Kings’
We may know why Halle Berry had those trendils of terrors at last years Oscars ceremony … she was in character for her new flick Kings.
The trailer just dropped and Berry’s curly locks are pretty identical to the ones she infamously rocked at the 2017 Academy awards. Folks went in on the gorgeous beauty about her hair choice for the evening, but we think once people see the trailer they’ll give her a pass.
Kings tells the story of Millie (Berry), a single mother with eight children, and some of them aren’t even her own. But she takes it upon herself to give them the best home that she can, even if it brings a little craziness into her neighborhood and drives her next door neighbor Obie (Daniel Craig) a little crazy. But there’s turmoil on the horizon after the Rodney King verdict is announced and the riots begin, seemingly putting Millie and her family in danger on the streets.
Similar to last years Detroit the flick, directed by Deniz Gamze Ergüven tackles racial tensions between citizens and law enforcement. Kings received mixed reviews when it premiered at September’s Toronto International Film Festival, but audiences will get to make up their own minds about the hot-button race-relations drama when it lands in theaters on April 27.
