The Gospel star shares intimate details of her life in a brand new stage play.
Check out what we’ve got percolating this morning:
- Juanita Bynum says her new stage play, Get Your Life Back, isn’t all fiction. In fact, much of the plot comes from her own past, the Gospel artist and televangelist revealed to V-103: “I’ve been there and I’ve done it all. I’ve done the drugs. I’ve been with men. I’ve been with women. It’s not a line, it’s my life.” She blames her past choices on her lack of wisdom. [Grio]
- Is Pharrell Williams engaged? He and his longtime girlfriend, Helen Lasichanh, were spotted on the red carpet on Monday night’s Dark Knight Rises premiere and Lasichanh happened to be wearing a sparkling diamond ring her left hand. [EURweb]
- The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess is set to close.
