Apparently Auntie Vi (Tina Lifford) is a world-class lover and […]

This week’s episode of ‘Queen Sugar’ is officially called “Face Speckled” (who names these episodes anyway) but after watching it, I’ve dubbed it “Blue’s Blues” for what should be obvious reasons. The reckoning for Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe) and Darla (Bianca Lawson) has come. Because of Nova’s book, they have to tell Blue the truth […]

This season, Queen Sugar seems to be making up for lost time. The lost time of last season, which was frustratingly slow and off-brand. Characters that were once fleshed out, seemed out of character and the pace of the show’s episodes, while always making Black people look beautiful, were sometimes nothing more than eye candy. […]

At the beginning of Season 4 of Queen Sugar, the Bordelons look triumphant.

She and Hollywood (Omar Dorsey)have just come off a honeymoon in […]

Whoo, chile. The Season 4 trailer for Queen Sugar is here and it’s making us wish the season started tomorrow!

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Empire” co-creator and executive producer Lee Daniels says the weeks since cast member Jussie Smollett was arrested and charged with fabricating a racist and homophobic attack have been “a freakin’ rollercoaster.” In an Instagram video that doesn’t refer to Smollett by name, Daniels says since “the incident” he and his cast […]
