Via deadline.com – by NELLIE ANDREEVA – EXCLUSIVE: Fox is bringing back its groundbreaking 1990s sketch comedy series In Living Color with the series’ creator and star, Keenen Ivory Wayans, on board as host and executive producer. Fox has ordered two In Living Color half-hour specials to air as part of the network’s 25th anniversary celebration in midseason with a series option behind them, meaning that in success, the reboot will join Fox’s schedule as a regular series next season. I hear it was Wayans’ idea to revive the popular sketch comedy series with a new cast. The new In Living Color will be produced by his production company Ivory Way Prods. in association with 20th Century Fox TV’s Fox 21.
Like the remake, the original In Living Color, which was produced by Ivory Way Prods and 20th TV, also launched in midseason, premiering on April 15, 1990. It broke stereotypes by employing a cast of mostly black comedians and introducing hip-hop and dancing to mainstream television. The show helped launch the careers of a slew of comedy actors — its cast included Wayans; his siblings Damon, Shawn, Kim and later Marlon; as well as Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx and David Alan Grier — and of course Jennifer Lopez as one of the Fly Girls. It spawned such iconic characters as “Men on Film,” starring flamboyant film critics Blaine Edwards (Damon Wayans) and Antoine Merriweather (Grier); Homey D. Clown (Damon Wayans), a dour urban kiddie entertainer whose catchphrase was “Homey don’t play that!”; streetwise scam artists “The Home Boys” (Keenen Ivory and Damon Wayans); and Fire Marshall Bill (Jim Carrey), a disfigured safety expert. In Living Color gave its actors freedom to improvise and it skewered everyone, particularly black America.
Via theurbandaily.com – by Shamike Sanders – The cops were called to Nicki Minaj‘s Hollywood home after Nicki allegedly got into an altercation with her ex-maid. TMZ reports “Nicki’s maid took a photo of the singer out of the trash and then asked Nicki to sign it. Nicki got p****d and fired her.”
The maid later came back to the residence where Nicki became enraged and told her to leave. A source claims “the maid stood her ground, demanding not to be “treated like an animal” — at which point, Nicki allegedly said, “I’ll show you how to treat someone like an animal … get the f**k out of my house!”
Nicki’s alleged boyfriend jumped into the mix and shoved the maid. The maid’s boss called the cops and filed a battery report.
According to TMZ “One source says — contrary to what the cops say – Nicki actually made a mistake, saw another maid and assumed she was the one Nicki had fired.”
Either way it seems like Nicki is becoming bit of a diva.
