Netflix has announced that it will premiere the original film Nappily Ever After, starring Sanaa Lathan, on September 21 globally. The film is an adaptation of the best-selling novel of the same name by Trisha R. Thomas.

About Nappily Ever After

Violet Jones (Sanaa Lathan) has a seemingly perfect life – a high-powered job, an eligible doctor boyfriend and a meticulously maintained, flawless coiffure. But after a life-changing event doesn’t go according to her plan, and a hair-raising incident at the hairdresser, her life begins to unravel. Eventually, Violet realizes that she was living the life she thought she was supposed to live, not the one she really wanted.

Nappily Ever After stars Sanaa Lathan, who also serves as a producer alongside Tracey Bing, Jared LeBoff and Marc Platt. Directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour, and written by Adam Brooks and Cee Marcellus, the film also stars Ricky Whittle, Lyriq Bent, Ernie Hudson and Lynn Whitfield.

Bobby Shmurda Reveals When He’ll Be Released From Prison

Back in 2016 it was reported, Bobby Shmurda was officially sentenced to seven years in prison in Manhattan Supreme Court this morning (Oct. 19). The sentence comes five weeks after accepting a deal to plead guilty to 4th-degree conspiracy to criminally possess a weapon and 2nd-degree criminal weapons possession, which concurrently carry a seven-year sentence. Shmurda, born Ackquille Pollard, appeared alone at the court hearing this morning, separate from his co-defendants Chad “Rowdy Rebel” Marshall and Nicholas McCoy.

The 23-year-old Brooklyn rapper revealed that he is set to be released from prison in late 2020.

In a phone interview with ThisIs50, Shmurda confirmed the news.

“I got two years left,” said the “Hot Boy.” “2020, I’m coming out and fucking everything up.”

Bobby Shmurda also cleared up rumored beef with rapper 6ix9ine: “Ain’t no beef, no problems.” Last week, his mother, Leslie, shared some new images in addition to saying that he’s “maintaining great spirits,”

Bishop Eddie Long Accusers Penning a Novel

Last year it was reported, The four young men who accused Bishop Eddie Long of sexual coercion will be writing a book together.

The book, called Foursaken, will focus on their lives after they broke ties with the controversial bishop, and they are reportedly shopping it out to try and find a publisher.

Fast Forward…

Now, 18 months after the controversial pastor’s death from an aggressive form of cancer, the alleged victims’ story will finally be told — with a twist.

According to AJC reports, Spencer LeGrande told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he is collaborating, along with some of Long’s other accusers from a 2010 lawsuit, on a novel.

The roman a clef — “Foursaken” — centers around a scandal involving the charismatic preacher of a thriving megachurch. While technically a work of fiction, LeGrande said there should be no doubt the sordid tale of power and betrayal is one they experienced firsthand. 

“The last man standing is the strongest,” said LeGrande, now 30 and living in Charlotte.

LaGrande, along with former New Birth Missionary Baptist Church members Maurice Robinson, Anthony Flagg and Jamaal Parris, shared similar accounts about their relationship with Long, who, they alleged, filled a void left by absent or abusive fathers.

An undisclosed financial settlement reached in 2011, after a fifth accuser, Centino Kemp, came forward, prevents them from discussing Long or New Birth.

The 2010 civil lawsuit claimed Long used “monetary funds from the accounts of New Birth and other corporate and non-profit corporate accounts to entice the young men with cars, clothes, jewelry, and electronics.”
