When it comes to dating, Rickey Smiley has a list of do’s and don’ts, but there is one that sticks out: If you can’t pay, don’t ask her out.

It’s true, there is nothing worse than going out on a date and being asked to either pay or for that matter, split a bill. Yes, it happens.

Smiley recently stopped by the HipHollywood loft to talk about his reality show Rickey Smiley For Real and while on the topic of his dating teenage sons, the radio host and comedian dished out some advice that many of ya’ll need to hear.

“If you can’t pay for a meal, you shouldn’t take nobody out on a date,” he told us.

Smiley then shared his thoughts on the new date night idea, “Netflix and chill.” “If you really interested in somebody, take her out for a nice dinner,” he explained. “Show her a good time”

Rickey joked, “‘Netfilx and chill’ is cheap … you probably doing ‘Netflix and chill’ at her place. You can’t even do ‘Netflix and chill’ at your place because you still live with your mama. He doin ‘Netflix and chili’ … Ya’ll watch a movie but your mama cooking some chili.”

Hey, if the chili is good, we can’t complain.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
