MOVIE SCOOP: ‘The Best Man Wedding’ Coming In 2016! #PassionateSpot


The Best Man Wedding 2016

It’s official!

Universal Pictures has announced The Best Man Wedding will be released on April 15, 2016!

Malcolm D. Lee will write and direct the film and Sean Daniel will produce the third installment of the hit franchise.

The great news is the original cast of Taye Diggs, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Morris Chestnut, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall have all signed on to return.

After the $70.5 million success of The Best Man Holiday, Universal would have been foolish not to offer us another sequel.

I want to go on record right now as being totally amped!

First Look: VH1 Releases Atlanta Exes Supertrailer #PassionateSpot


The first look at the show that needs no introduction is here. We’ve been talking about “Atlanta Exes” ever since the reality show was just a rumor, but now the supertrailer is here and the proof is in the footage.

The show is slated to air next month and this trailer is definitely building anticipation as we see Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Raymond talk about moving out of the home they shared together and losing her son, Neyo’s ex-fiance Monyetta Shaw reveal that she’s unable to have more children, and Kevin Hart’s ex, Torrei, cause a little bit of drama — or so it seems.

Check out the video above and tell us what you think about the new series. Will you tune in?

Exclusive scene from A Hustlaz Dream on eBooks on Tuesday Jul 22nd #PassionateSpot

9780996084475For some, when money is the motivation, the motto is to get it by any means necessary. When love is the motivation, some will fight to maintain their position at the #1 spot. Journey with Zeh’Shown while he walks and squawks the maze of his concrete jungle in search of the culprit who tired to shake the foundation of his empire. With all the toes he’d stepped on to achieve his status, there were a number of those who welcomed his demise. Frustration sets in when his search yields no results. All the while, the person causing all the turmoil was a part of his inner circle. This is a Hustlaz Drama.

Exclusive scene:

Seeing Jai’Myiah’s pursuit in her direction with the pistol aimed directly at her and the beam dancing over her body, Omari’s one big eye got as big as a silver dollar. She crawled backwards until the metal fence allowed her to move no further. Jai’Myiah bent down to her level, placed the gun to her temple and whispered in her ear.

“Look at all this shit you brought on yourself. Dumb bitch, you should’ve known from the gate that when I entered the game shit was getting shut down, there was no longer any competition. You should have just fallen back and played your position, it would never have come to this. I’m your superior bitch, if you would’ve just recognized and humbly bowed down you could’ve still had the nigga on occasion, but you chose this. Any last words? I’ll give you a minute to say your prayers.”
“Fuck you bitch, I’ll see you in hell,” were Omari’s words before Jai’Myiah put two in her chest and one in her stomach.

Book Suggestion: A Hustlaz Dream by Jasmin Johnston #PassionateSpot


Jill Scott, Eve and Regina Hall Set to Star in “With This Ring” #PassionateSpot

The Vow Image

Today’s post is a true testament to the fact that good things come to those who wait.Back in 2009, I wrote a post about Denene Millner, Angela Burt-Murray and Mitzi Miller’s novel “The Vow” hitting the small screen. Fans of the book (including yours truly) that have been waiting with baited breath for its television debut will finally get a chance to exhale! Mitzi Miller and Angela Burt-Murray just announced on Facebook over the weekend that our wait is over. With Gabrielle Union as the executive producer, an all-star cast including Eve, Regina Hall and Jill Scottt, “With This Ring” is an adaptation of the “The Vow” that’s sure to be a cable network hit.

Quick refresher: “The Vow” is  about three best friends coming together for their sorority sister’s glitzy wedding in Atlanta and make a vow to get married within one year. As they embark on their search to find their soul mates, they navigate the full-contact sport known as being a SSBFLA (successful, single, black, female in L.A.) and negotiate the shark-infested waters of making a name for themselves professionally in Hollywood.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this page-turner and can honestly say, it’s one of those juicy novels you just don’t want to tear away from. The movie will be written and directed by Nzingha Stewart and co-produced by Tracey Edmonds and Sheila Ducksworth. Definitely one to watch. Congrats, ladies!
