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.

Watch: Halle Berry Issues Whiskey Challenge During ‘Kingsman’ Interview



Halle Berry proved she could hang with the fellas when she downed a glass of whiskey at Comic Con alongside her Kingsman: The Golden Circle co-stars. But don’t expect her to do that again.

“No more, no more,” she said after hilariously bolting from the room when we asked her if she’d drink another glass. “I will never [do it again], and no one lets me live down the fact that I did it either.”

According to Berry she was ill for three days after, but that didn’t stop her and Pedro Pascal from daring me to throw back a glass right before our interview.

Not one to turn down a challenge, I did it, and received a round of applause and high fives before preceding to discuss the duo’s roles and why they decided to join the cast of Kingsman.

“Matthew Vaughn’s version of these movies always interested me” explained Berry who is no stranger to spy flicks after starring in the James Bond film Die Another Day. “I was apart of the Bond series and I feel like this is similar but it’s also for the new generation.”

She continued, “Some of the elements are the same but I call it spy thriller 2.0, he takes it to the next level that no one else does right now.”

In the film Berry, Pascal, Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum play members of the Statesmen – a U.S. Spy agency operating out of a Kentucky Bourbon distillery. Pascal told us he gained a newfound appreciation for men in suits, but still prefers his jeans.

“I play agent whiskey. I’m a southern gentlemen so I’m a little more buttoned up … I’m like the stateside version of those square pegs from across the pond,” he joked.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle hits theaters September 22.
