Stacey Dash appeared in a skit during the 88th Academy Awards and not only was it incredibly awkward, but the moment fell totally flat.

The Fox News Correspondent, who recently came under fire suggesting that we should abolish Black History month, was introduced during the show as the “new director” of the Academy’s “minority outreach program,” something that for anybody up to date on Dash’s recent ignorant comment, understood.

Sadly, Rock’s efforts to joke about Dash’s latest controversy became more of a WTF moment for the rest of the world.

“I cannot wait to help my people out,” Dash professed on stage. “Happy Black History Month!”

Insert crickets.

Considering the moment went over hundreds of heads, Dash decided to address the moment with a lengthy blog post directly after the show.

“When they added ME to increase the diversity, I’m sure many black people rolled their eyes,” she wrote. “I’m not ‘black enough,’ they say. But guess what? I’ve heard that all my life. I would rather be a free thinking, black than a cookie cutter black who thinks — and votes — just like all my friends.”

“Yes, I’m the actress from the South Bronx who has always dreamed of winning an Oscar. But God has a great sense of humor and this is my first encounter with one of my dreams of destiny. Bringing diversity to Hollywood… not merely because of color, but politics as well.  (After all, different colors of skin is an easy kind of diversity.  Ideological diversity is much harder, because it forces everyone to come face to face with actual beliefs.  Hollywood needs BOTH.)

Following Stacey’s awkward on stage appearance, Twitter blew up with reactions from Oscar watchers, including Scandal creator, Shonda Rhimes and singer, Demi Lovato.

Published

The “Boo” is back!

In Boo 2 A Madea Halloween, Tyler Perry’s character Brian is a bit of a dorky dad … but in real life, Perry says he lays down the law when it comes to his own son, 3 1/2 year old Aman.

HH caught up with Tyler during the press rounds for Boo 2 and the multi-facted mogul gave us some insight on how and why he would be quick to transform into a James Evans (from “Good Times”) kind of dad.
