Jimmy Fallon & Nicki Minaj And Their Unforgettable Night At Red Lobster (Video)

Hey. I ain’t mad at Jimmy… at all! Don’t know if it was Fallon’s first time going to Red Lobster, but if it was, this looked like a hella fun way to go. Break bread with sexy Nicki and let her break that Red Lobster cherry. And in the tightest cherry red leather pants, too. Mm mm mm!

Jimmy has never tried Red Lobster before, so former employee Nicki Minaj shows him how to experience the restaurant and serve customers the right way.

Connie Orlando Speaks On Her Career Path To BET Programming & Bringing Viewers Back To The Network (Video)

Daaaaamn! Connie is sexy AF though! Couldn’t say that about BET’s “The Boogeyman” back in the day (haha). The BET Awards getting Regina Hall to host was a good look, as was the Exonerated Five as special guests (spoiler alert, I guess).

The bees will not DARE sting Morgan Freeman. He’s feeding them that good sugar water!

Plus, the ‘buzz’ is (groan) that people treat him like a god. Ha! Honey bees want Morgan Freeman on their side for certain. Cool dude.

James Corden Welcomes Céline Dion To ‘Carpool Karaoke’ (Video)

I have to believe Céline Dion has the most fun spirit, I mean that “Ashes” video she did for “Deadpool 2” alone, right? But that is also a beautiful song, like most all her work.

Well, put the fabulous, fun, uber-talent in a ‘Carpool Karaoke’ why dont’cha, James. I am here for it!

In addition to singing her classics, Céline proves she has a song for any moment, James teaches Céline “Baby Shark” and the two give away pairs of Céline’s precious shoes. And stay for a Titanic-sized end to their afternoon together.

LeBron James & Lonzo Ball Speak Their Minds On Magic Johnson’s Departure From The Lakers Organization (Video)

Enjoy catching ‘The Shop: Uninterrupted’ on HBO when time allows. Good chit-chat based on the barbershop paradigm. Nothing off limits. Of course, LeBron and Lonzo are certainly too smart to risk multi-million dollar paychecks with controversial public reactions, but they are pretty candid in the clip above where they discuss how they found out about Magic Johnson leaving the Los Angeles Lakers.

Lebron came to the Lakers after talking with Magic. Think he might find a way to walk away now that Magic is? Well, hit the jump.

Score for Comedy Hype! Would have been great to be there with the comedic greats. There was NOTHING that could touch these folks’ show when they were really on. Even if they called it a ‘Black SNL.’

Keenen Ivory Wayans, Kim Wayans, Shawn Wayans, David Alan Grier, and Tommy Davidson sit down to discuss “In Living Color’s” legacy at 2019 Tribeca Film Festival.

Enjoyed “Hollywood Shuffle” back in the day. Now I gotta go find a copy of that “Partners In Crime” followup to watch.

No Words Are Necessary When Robert De Niro Is Your Guest. But He’ll Say A Few… (Video)

Standing O for De Niro! Not one butt in a seat when he came out. Respect due and paid in full by the audience. They wanted to see and hear from him. I wanted to see what he would say about President Trump. I mean, De Niro did say he wanted to ‘punch Trump in the mouth’ during the campaign… so expect him to be real and raw in this clip above.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Tribeca Film Festival founder Robert De Niro.
– The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Oh. Oh, that part with the ice cream. That was BRILLIANT! Awesome clip.
