The Best Man Holiday is finally in theaters! And by all accounts the sequel, nearly 15 years in the making, is expected to do well at the box office, especially with an ensemble cast that has collectively generated millions of box office dollars and fan power over the years. But since their star turns in 1999, some of the actors have generated more than others, let’s be honest.

Love & Hip Hop’s Yandy Smith recently got “all up in the business” of the Best Man Holiday cast, as they gave updates about where the characters are picking up 15 years after the 1999 hit movie The Best Man left off. Who better to get everyone caught up on where Harper, Jordan, Lance, Julian, Robin, Mia, Candy and the rest of the gang are now, than someone just as used to on-screen drama?
If you’re a fan of the Internet, you probably already know and love Issa Rae. But if you aren’t familiar with “The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl” creator yet: 1. You’re #late (we’ll be sure to send you those Harlem Shake videos you missed, too). 2. You’ve got a shot at getting up to speed and then some during our live chat with her on the Very VH1 Spreecast Wednesday, November 6, at 3:30 pm ET (12:30 PT).
We’ll be talking to the hilarious Forbes “30 Under 30” writing, acting, producing, directing innumerable-threat about her latest YouTube projects, her Scandal connection and her HBO future.
Within seconds of the opening strains of “Seasons of Love” the Twitterverse exploded with messages of condolences and support as Glee fans all over the globe said #farewellfinn during the highly anticipated (and dreaded) Cory Monteith tribute episode. In short, I cried. A lot. And since I read on the internet that group therapy is beneficial, here are the five most moving moments from last night’s show. Get your
shirt sleeve forearm tissues ready.
If you’re not watching Ray Donovan, what’s wrong with you? Not only is this Sopranos-meets-Scandal drama full of sex, violence and intrigue, but it features one of the hottest former stars of BET’s hit show The Game, Pooch Hall. Earlier this year he retired Derwin Davis’ cleats for good and took up a pair of boxing gloves. Now Hall is going rounds as the respective half-brother and son of Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight’s characters on Ray. Hall took a moment to dish with VH1 about Sunday finale, leaving The Game and “working with the big dogs” on Showtime.
Last week Dancing With the Stars first All-Stars season said a not-so-shocking goodbye to Pamela Anderson and her sexy wriggle. Looks like the riffraff is disappearing quicker than usual, and everyone knows the competition is stiff. Let’s continue breaking down the good, the not-so-bad and the ugly from the dance floor and see if we can predict which DWTS alums stepped it up enough to stick around another week.
Gilles Marini & Peta Murgatroyd
Although it was Sabrina Bryan & Louis Van Amstel who scored the highest routine of the night by pulling the first 9 from the judges this season, Switched at Birth hottie Gilles Marini (don’t you dare mock my ABC Family programming obsession) showed a little more cleavage than his former Cheetah Girls competition. Man Boobs > Sparkly Lady Cleavage = Gilles Wins All The Points. Shirtlessness aside, his excited, high-kicking jive was made all the more impressive since he strained a thigh muscle practicing. Many thanks to ABC for conducting part of Gilles interview while he was pantsless lying on a physical therapy table. What say you, Bruno Tonioli? “You’ve got the coiff. You’ve got the cleavage. Let the good times roll!” Indeed. Score: 24.5/30

Dancing With the Stars premiered last night with all the overly spray-tanned faces, judge sniping and glitter we’ve come to expect and love over the past 15 seasons. And the first all-star season of the oft-humiliating franchise took the competition up a notch with winners, finalists and favorites of the past shimmying their way through a tougher scoring system. You know, since every alum is now an expert dancer (except Pamela Anderson, just saying). But no matter how hard everyone worked, someone has to go home tonight. So let’s break down the good, the not-so-bad and the ugly from the dance floor and see if we can predict which DWTS alum will be having the first last dance.
Emmitt Smith & Cheryl Burke
The Football Hall of Famer —“Twinkle Toes” to you DWTS fans — is back! The Season 3 winner closed the premiere episode with a cha-cha that placed him and Cheryl at the top of the leader board. Even Len, who had been particularly reluctant to throw out praise all night said their performance was, “the last dance of the evening and the best.” Score: 24.5/30
