In David E. Talbert’s new family comedy Almost Christmas, J.B. Smoove narrowly dodges a bullet after his wife, played by Kimberly Elise, comes face to face with his side chick (Keri Hilson) at Christmas dinner.

HipHollywood hit the red carpet for the L.A. premiere, and got the cast, including Smoove and Mo’Nique, to dish some advice for real-life side chicks who may not know the rules during the Holiday season.

“Know your place: You’re the day after Christmas, you’re the day after Thanksgiving, the day after Martin Luther King Day,” joked Mo’Nique, who plays the hilarious Aunt May in the film. “I don’t have anything against the side woman, but know your place, know your place … and listen to Trick Daddy.”

“If you’re the side chick, write down the definition of the word,” added J.B. Smoove. “Look up the definition of “side” and look up the definition of “chick” and put it together, and from that you’ll know exactly what you are.”

“Imma keep it real; if you’re the side chick you have to be research-oriented,” dished Romany Malco, who plays one of the Meyers children. “Because one Bing search and she (Hilson) would have known that Lonnie wasn’t sh&t … so she kinda brought it on herself.”

Hilson, however, who naively believes Smoove is her new man in the film, defended her character’s actions. “Some side chicks don’t even know they are side chicks,” she explained during our sit-down at Essence Festival. “Dudes be having great game; it’s [really] the guys fault if you don’t know. Now, if you know, that’s a completely different thing.”

Almost Christmas, which also stars Gabrielle Union, Jessie Usher, Nicole Ari Parker, Omar Epps and Danny Glover, hits theaters November 11. In the meantime, hit the flip for pics from the star-studded premiere.

50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”



Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
