Working Woman Wednesday: Taraji P. Henson To Produce & Star in Upcoming Film About Emmett Till’s Life

Actress Taraji P. Henson has recently confirmed that she will be starring and producing an upcoming film about Emmett Till’s life and murder.

Henson tells Global Grind,

We don’t have a start date yet but I am producing ‘The Emmett Till Story’ and I’m starring as Mamie Till. She goes on to say how passionate she’s been about the project since the murder of Trayvon Martin.

For those of you that don’t know, Emmett Till was a 14-year-old boy, who was gruesomely murdered for whistling at a white woman and for that very reason he was drug out of his home, beaten and shot to death. His suspected killers were acquitted by an all-white jury in just over an hour.

John Singleton will be directing the film so you know for sure there will be no epic fails there!

Well we are all for it and excited to see what Taraji has to bring to the big screen. You Gooooo Girl!

” After spending over 11 years in the medical industry, Laura “Honey” Prince longed for a change of pace. While she loved her career, she knew that she had more to offer. A true entrepreneur at heart, a passion for helping others feel their best and a love for all things glam and beauty related; she decided that a career in the beauty industry would suit her well.

One day after receiving unpleasant treatment and subpar services at a local nail salon, Honey realized that there was a shortage of qualified professional African American nail techs in her area. She instantly knew that nails were the beauty branch she needed to pursue. Laura (Honey) began training at Modern Beauty College and completed the required hours to obtain her license in 2016. Honey Dipp Nails was founded shortly after.

Laura (Honey) works from a quaint corner in her Carrollton, TX home, but don’t let the modest set-up fool you, she delivers top-notch professional services comparable to top-ranked salons in TX. Her clients enjoy the peaceful atmosphere but more so Honey’s down to earth and witty personality make each
visit a joy. Her clients “trust the process” and are very confident in her work and knowledge. Honey’s top priority is the overall health of the client and their nails. Whether the client is receiving care for their natural nail or a nail enhancement she practices meticulous rituals to ensure that each service is executed in a clean, sanitized manner and ensures that minimal damage is done to the natural nail. Second to the health of the nail, Honey is all about glam and custom sets. Her signature service is “the Dipp”. She loves to add her unique design aesthetic to each set by mixing and creating her own powders. She has perfected the “what polish” set to be technical. Clients get long-lasting vibrant custom colors and designs that can only be found at Honey Dipped Nails.

Nails have become her passion. She continues to educate herself, learn new techniques and perfect her craft so that she can offer unparalleled services to her clients. Honey hopes to continue to expand her brand and services over the course of the next few years. She is currently working on her own hand care line,

We Are Here For It – Ray J, The TV Host!

Ray J? Ain’t that Brandy’s brother?

He will always be Brandy’s brother but we believe the singer/reality tv star, Ray J is making a new name for himself and leaving his own Hollywood footprints.


Well, it looks like we have some MAJOR Reali-TEA! Baristas, come fill your cup!


It’s been a year of celebrities just guest hosting and sitting on The Real’s couch with the four hosts ( Adrienne Houghton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love and Jeannie Mai ), the daytime talk show may have finally found its fifth host to complete their circle: Ray J.

The Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star posted on his Instagram account some exciting news on Monday. “Looks like I got a new job”, he said while posing with his new co-hosts. ( pictured below)

Some fans aren’t buying it, given that the hosts are mostly women they’re already taking Ray J for a joke.

Personally, we feel it’s okay to have that balance! It’s just a situation where we have to give the man a chance, he may bring a great change to the show.

Change is always GOOD!

Well, we are here for it! Congrats Ray J aka Brandy’s brother on your new endeavor!
