Last night friends of John Witherspoon came out to give him a good verbal smashing at TV One’s Roast and Toast affair at the 9900 Club in Beverly Hills. Who can forget his scene stealing moments in Boomerang and Friday? You know the lines: “Mushroom tie, mushroom socks..

The Light, and the importance of being politically active and making the Barack change this November; Tatyana mentioned work on a web based show called Buppies. >> “Which touches on black Hollywood and has a little bit of a Sex and the City and Entourage vibe. It’s about the characters, both women and men, figuring out who they are.”
