What’s up y’all?  Here is the dirt…

I’m chilling down here in SUNNY, HOT Miami for the American Black Film Festival and a sista is having a BALL!!  My day started out horrible but the sights I’ve seen and the folks I met have really given me a BUNCH to talk about.  Let me start with the “Good.”  I had the opportunity to view the opening night film called “Why We Laugh,” which was produced and directed by the legendary Robert Townsend.  The film was BRILLIANT and if you get a chance, be sure to check it out.  It will be airing on Showtime in the upcoming months.

Side Bar-Many people SLEEP on the comedic genius of Robert Townsend but he is REALLY a great writer and who is HILARILOUSLY funny!

Okay, so on my way back to the hotel from the opening night film, I ran into Gregalan Williams.  I know y’all are asking yourselves, “Who in the HELL is Gregalan Williams,” but for those of you who don’t know who he, he is the dude that played Dr. Barnett (Mel’s father) on CW’s “The Game.”  That dude was so cool.  He was funny and down earth.  Be sure to checkout his upcoming project on called the “Preacher’s Kid” starring LeToya Luckett.  Nuff said…

After getting to the opening night party I must say that the beautiful people really came out to represent.  However, don’t get it twisted because there were some BEARS trying to shut it down as well.  Gentlemen, please know that “bootie shake dancing” is NOT INTENDED for YOU!  Please make a mental note and don’t let me catching you out in public getting yo’ shake on!!  The above dude is an example of what NOT to do.  Bootie shake…freeze…bootie shake…wind…freeze and bootie shake again.  I can truly say that I was NOT ready for that foolishness!  Nuff said…

Wendell Pierce

Later on in the evening I happened to run into Wendell Pierce.  I know that some of y’all are really going, “Who is the HELL is Wendell Pierce?”  Well for those of you who don’t know, he is the husky dude who played Lela Rachon’s character in “Waiting to Exhale” for a fool.  Y’all this dude acts JUST LIKE his character in “Waiting to Exhale.”  Not only that, he was a lil’ tart…like he had just done aerobics and put on his SUIT in hot azz Miami!!  Dat joker was sweating like a HOG!  Nuff said…

After making my way away from Wendell and his told “Secret”, I ran right into the beautiful Tangie Miller.  All I wanna say is that she is such a good sport.  Not only is she beautiful and talented, the sista is so very REGULAR.  Check out her upcoming film “My Girlfriends’ Back.”  I think y’all will like it.

I saved the best for last!!  Okay y’all, I’m kicking it near the dance floor and I see this DUSTY chick (and when I say “dusty” I’m talking Chi-Lites and LTD “dusty” and not “ashy”) getting her groove on with a dude that I thought was her grandson only to find out that it was not.  It was the mama of actor Rockman Dunbar.  Now that was some funny ish!!  More dirt tomorrow!
