Talk about spilling the tea — HipHollywood has learned exclusively that your favorite television family might be welcoming a new addition to the already large and comedic crew.

During Sunday afternoon’s Paley Fest, Black-ish star, Peter Mackenzie, who plays Anthony Anderson’s hilariously lax boss, gave the biggest spoiler of Season 2. “[Rain]Bow is having a baby,” he graciously told us. “There is a new baby, a new addition.”

Following Mackenzie’s revelation about Tracee Ellis Ross’ character, HipHollywood caught up with Anderson who didn’t play into the tease, asking us, “Who told you that?” However, when asked what we can expect from Season 3 this fall, he answered, “I guess a baby. I guess sleepless nights. I guess burping. We haven’t figured that out yet. We know how we’ve ended Season 2, obviously you do too. We need to figure out how we are going to tackle another 24 episodes.”

Aside from possible baby bumps and poopy diapers, Anderson also revealed that during the remainder of Season 2, fans could expect more water cooler topics. “We pride ourselves on being topical and timely and also dealing with the divisive topics that brings people together … and have a dialogue.”

Black-ish, which is one of the highest rated sitcoms on ABC, is based around a father making sure his four children stay in touch with black culture. The show is also loosely based on the life of the show’s creator, Kenya Barris, whose wife is also currently pregnant.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
