It’s more than a slavery story, it’s an escape thriller that will leave you breathless!

The highly anticipated WGN America show Underground is set to premiere on March 9th and has everyone talking. Between the heart-racing previews and the timely, yet historical subject matter, Underground couldn’t have come at a better time.

Starring Aldis Hodge (Noah) and Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Rosalee), the story follows seven runaway slaves fighting towards freedom. But, this isn’t the “underground railroad” story you learned in elementary. This time around, director Anthony Hemingway was determine to tell a different story. “We were not afraid to take risks,” Hemingway revealed, “We wanted to find new approaches and look at something, even characters, story or from a cinematic point of view of trying to be different.”

What also may be different is the complicated and layered relationship between Noah (Hodges), who works the fields and Rosalee (Smollett-Bell), who works in the “Big House”. “Noah is naturally a loaner for most of his life, that’s what he understands,” Aldis explained. “When he meets Rosalee he encounters some emotions he’s never had before.”

Watch the story unfold when Underground premieres, Wednesday, March 9th on WGN America.

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy



Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
