The shade was in full effect at the 44th annual Daytime Emmy Awards!

HH hit the red carpet to celebrate the best of the best in television, but while we were there, we got down and shady with a few of the nominees.

The legendary Gladys Knight showed up to her first Daytime Emmys with shade in tow. While there to present in the Outstanding Drama category, the “Neither One Of Us” singer spilled all the tea in the brewing beef between her friends Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick. “Dionne’s gonna tell it like it is and ‘Ree’s gonna be sensitive,” Knight stated. But, she did offer to mediate the senior citizen spat.

And speaking of spats, the ladies from The Real hit the carpet hoping to win their first Emmy, but it was also the first time they would be seeing their ex-co-host, Tamar Braxton. Luckily, no shade was thrown there as Adrienne Bailon told us, “it all comes down to having peace.”

And it looks like The View hosts Sunny Hostin and Jedidiah Bila have found peace within the shade that constantly gets thrown on their daytime talk show. Although the women bicker often, Hostin revealed it’s Whoopi Goldberg who checks their shade levels and tells them don’t ever take things personally.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”



It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
