Lena Waithe has been living it up lately. She’s writing on several TV shows, an Emmy winner, a style icon that gets invited to the Met Gala and now she’s getting kissed by Halle Berry.
Lena Waithe was the guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live this Wednesday night and says when she was younger that she used to imagine hosting her own talk show. She stepped in and took Kimmel’s place for the night and had several guests like Lala Milan, Chika, and John Travolta.

With being rather new to hosting a show she said was feeling a little nervous and said she could use some words of encouragement. This is where Kimmel’s sidekick/security guard Guillermo offered her the “Berry button” which you press when you need something ‘berry’ important.
Since it was her first late night hosting gig, she went through with the berry button and out comes the Oscar-winning actress, Halle Berry with a hug for Waithe. She then asks Waithe, “Baby what can I do for you?” which Lena responds by saying, “I need some inspiration. Like that Oscars speech you gave, that got me hyped,” and that she needed some of “that Halle Berry juice.”
Berry, 52, and Waithe, 35 ,know each other pretty well and actually are co-producers for the show Boomerang.
Halle Berry then says “I got you.” This is when things get steamy. Berry snaps and the lights in the show dim and Halle Berry turns to Lena and says, “Lena, you know I know you. We’ve worked together so I know that you are a force of nature” she continues, “you are a beautiful African American queen.”
She continues to give Lena words of encouragement reassuring that she is a writer, a actor, a producer and that night, a late night comedian. “You about to slay this show! And you are already winning, girl, because you are dressed way better than Jimmy ever was.”
After those words she asks Lena if she’s good or needs something else which Lena replies “I think I’m good.” Halle however thought otherwise and said “I think you need something else” and then grabs Lena’s face and kisses her. After that Berry says, “Now you’re good!”
Halle Berry doesn’t stay for long after this and told Lena if she wants to make her good to give her new movie John Wick 3 a shoutout.
Lena afterwards seemed to be doing much better and was seeming lost for words while only being able to say “wow”. She then asked Guillermo, “Do me a favor, pry that button off the wall and put that sh- in my house.”
Lena posted the video of them kissing on her Twitter saying “No caption necessary. Just tune in y’all. @halleberry @jimmykimmellive.” Halle Berry too posted the video on her Instagram story saying, “When my friend @lenawaithe host @jimmykimmellive sh- happens” and “Love this lady.”

[VIDEO] Ginuwine Receives A Lap Dance Onstage From Ashanti And Things Got Hot!
This week a video surfaced of singer Ashanti giving Ginuwine a steamy lap dance at her concert in Texas and social media is freaking out.
Ashanti has been our tour lately with Ja Rule and one of their shows actually included Ginuwine and the group Jagged Edge. During her set she invited the singer of the hit song “Pony” on stage and handcuffed him to a chair. During the lap dance the two hilariously got stuck together during her song “Girlfriend.” The two of them didn’t seem to mind though.
“Oh sh- and we stuck,” the singer laughed to the crowd. They took it pretty well and remained stuck there until Ashanti’s dancers stepped in and helped the two apart.
Ginuwine posted the video on his instagram with the caption, “@ashanti better stop hand cuffing me before she get in mad trouble ..see got stuck!!!!! Lolololol thanks baby girl it was so much fun with you and the homie @ruleyorkcity we need to keep this going such a great turn out ,love you shawty and thanks again can’t wait to see y’all again blessings #entertainment.”
Ashanti then commented on the post saying, “how did we get stuck tho??? lol!! Thanks for coming up!! Had a blast!! Many blessings & much love!!!” which seems like she’s keeping it pretty friendly.
Fans took it another way though commenting things like:
“She been waiting to do that ginuwine is so fine”
“I felt a whole love connection”
“Looks like a sign to me”

Even reality star Claudia Jordan commented saying, “Uh oh. She pregnant! Lol! I ❤️her!”

[VIDEO] Monica Admits To Toya Brown, “I just didn’t expect to be a 38-year-old single mom of three.”
On a recent episode of ‘T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle, Toya Wright met up with Monica Brown after sending Toya a message to come meet her a hotel. Toya says she had no idea what was going on or why she was specifically meeting her at a hotel. She thought the two were just going to brunch but she then learns that Monica has been staying at the hotel.
“The kids think we’re having a slumber party.” says the singer. Here, Monica opens up to Toya about how she’s been juggling the children, her upcoming surgery, and a music video for her song “Commitment” which is directed by Teyana Taylor.
See the video link below.
Monica says the video will be about her younger self. Which Toya remembers as the, “Uh oh! We getting that kick down your door and slap your chick mode!” But Monica reassures that it’s only for the video. Brown admits it’s something that she would do in the past but she’s now goes by “No more acting out for Monica.” to make sure she’s a good example for her kids.
“I did a lot of self work to get control of my temper and how I respond to things because you do stuff in the spur of moment and you can’t take it back,” she notes.
The conversation then took a step deeper into her relationship when the singer explains, “I just started thinking like, okay you need to be the example your kids need to see. If somebody mistreating you they don’t deserve you.”
After she says this, Toya expresses her concern for her friend. “Are you okay friend?” shes asks. Wright is worried because she’s noticed that Monica has been very sad lately and crying a lot.
Monica seems to be handling herself best as possible but asks that she keep this information between the two and that she really just needed to talk to her. Besides her mother, Toya would be the only person who know what’s truly going on between Monica and Shannon Brown. Here, she admits that they may be getting a divorce and that she never thought she would be a 38-year-old single mother of three.
