Tisha Campbell Shares Memories, Stories About Her Kids, And Her Interview Time With A Surprise Guest (Video)

Wow. A Kid N Play ‘footwork’ greeting instead of a handshake greeting. Sounds like a cool idea if you have any level of coordination. But if you’re like me… maybe we can ‘modify’ that move. Ha!

But Tisha has no idea how this ‘cool idea’ will resurface (in a manner of speaking) in this interview clip.

It’s a “House Party” reunion! Tisha Campbell joined Access Daily hosts Mario Lopez and Kit Hoover to chat about her new show “Outmatched,” which airs Thursday nights on FOX. Tisha opened up about why her two kids were the reason she joined the series. Tisha also gave an amazing update on her eldest son, revealing that he got into the college of his dreams. Plus, watch Tisha’s priceless reaction to former “House Party” co-star Christopher ‘Kid’ Reid crashing her interview!

Social distancing be damned when Kid comes on the set! And Kid cannot be mad at that. Tisha is still looking great!

Comedy: Jimmy Kimmel Talks to People Buying Weed at Marijuana Drive-Thru (Video)

Shouldn’t ALL weed dispensing establishments have a drive-thru? I have seen drive-thru liquor stores around the ATL, so why not drive-thru dispensaries some of everywhere? Go to the burger drive-thru to get grub, then go smoke up some munchies and go BACK to the burger spot after you devour what you already bought.

See? Good for the economy. Good for everyone! Wonder if Jimmy brings that kinda of thing up? Let’s see.

The world’s largest marijuana dispensary, Nu Wu Cannabis Marketplace in Las Vegas, Nevada, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and the best thing is – it’s got a drive-thru window. We checked back in with our friends there to play another round of ‘Let’s Make a Dope Deal!’ with their customers.

Check Out The Highlights From The 13th Annual ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ Belly Flop Competition (Video)

I like Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s celeb commentary on this Belly Flop competition. There’s technique to consider… Take it seriously, folks!! Reminds me of the VERY serious (but hella fun) Cannonball Competitions we had every summer back in Tuskegee (Alabama, USA) back in the day.

Every year we set up an above-ground swimming pool, and we send Cousin Sal out to Hollywood Blvd to pull a group of confused pedestrians off the street, put them in bathing suits and make them compete in a belly flop contest. This year’s guest judges are Adam Rippon, Mark McGrath, Anthony Anderson’s mom Doris, and a special appearance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

RIP Kobe Bryant (Video)

I found out at work, working overtime, when my boss announced to the room: “This is going to be sad news for basketball fans. Kobe Bryant died in a helicopter crash just a few hours ago…”

She said some other stuff after that. I wasn’t really pay attention. I really wasn’t even trying to ‘confirm’ the story (my brother BoneBreaker Jones did moments later, with a “No-noooo-nooooo, man! RIP Kobe“). I was just numb for a bit, and I was not going to try to ‘snap out of it.’ This loss is WAY more than a ‘hit to the basketball world’…

Think about a multi-lingual Black kid that goes to prom with Brandy, a teen R&B idol of his and millions of fans…who goes to the NBA as a teen and becomes a multi-million dollar superstar, all-star, champion, Olympic gold medal winner…embroiled in extra-marital scandal, beefing with one of the greatest impact players in NBA history (Shaq)…who knuckled down and got back to winning on- and off-court, saving a marriage and staying with his wife, having four daughters, finding ‘new careers’ after NBA retirement – coaching his girl’s ball team and giving motivational speeches (to Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide among others, because champions NEED to FEED on the energy of champions) AND winning an Academy Award (yeah, an Oscar!)…

Look. Kobe Bryant was just 41, and he managed to squeeze in more life in half a lifetime than many of us will if we get to live twice as long. And I could go on, but nah. I’m done. I’m not even a basketball fan like that, but I am done AND undone at the same DAMN time. Give me a long minute. Past a moment of silence. Because, among other reasons, his daughter Gigi was on that helicopter.


May Kobe, his baby Gigi, and the other three passengers on that fateful flight, Rest In Peace.

NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter were among five people killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on Sunday, a source confirmed to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Bryant was 41.

Okay, This Is REALLY The Final Season Of Marvel’s “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D” (Trailer)

… on ABC, at least. I am still holding out for a return to the storyline in some fashion on Disney+ or something. Why not? It was supposed to be a wrap last season, but ABC (owned by Disney) brought it back. Let’s keep bringing it back!

Speaking of ‘bringing it back’ … won’t this be like… the FOURTH Coulson we get?? Counting Agent Phil Coulson from the Iron Man, Thor, Avengers, and Captain Marvel movies… who died and came back to life to eventually become the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. …only to die and return (sort of, at least in borrowed body form) as single-minded evil alien slayer ‘Sarge’… who bites it… THEN we get a new and improved good ole [Life Model Decoy, or LMD] Phil Coulson (thanks to ancient mysticism and super-futuristic sci-fi tech)… I mean wowwww! That Coulson has gotta be part cat with all those lives, right?

And I was and am still here for ALL of it! Come on Season 7. Hurry up!
