A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of interviewing some of the leading ladies from Tyler Perry’s shows on OWN.

I spoke with to the talented Tika Sumpter from The Have & Have Nots — who dished on her crazy character Candace — and the hillarios Cassi Davis and Jackee Harry — who both talked about their new show The Paynes.

Check out the fun and hillarious interview after the break….

It’s not everyday I get to interview a film icon. Wesley Snipes, who list of credits include White Man Can’t Jump, New Jack City, and my personal favorite, Blade, came by ABC to talk to me about his new sci-fi thriller novel, Talon of God.

Snipes was extremely candid with me talking not only about his book, which I will say is a must read, but his interest in making it a film, his thoughts on making a Blade a sequel and why there’s no need to reboot his classic flicks.

There’s a lot in this 20 minute interview (sorry no discussion of taxes) so enjoy…

p.s. Wesley is one funny mother… shut your mouth!
