Check out why we’re nibbling on coffee cake this morning:
- Halle Berry is opening up about her ongoing custody battle. She spoke with “Extra” about it and said that she and Gabriel reached an impasse and needed a judge to help move things along. “When there’s a child involved, it’s a relief when you can resolve things in a good way. Our issues were never about fighting for her.” Check out the full interview below.
- Tyler Perry is blasting Spike Lee. At a “Madea’s Big Happy Family” press conference in L.A. yesterday, Perry told Spike to “shut the hell up!” “I’m so sick of hearing about damn Spike Lee. Spike can go straight to hell! You can print that. I am sick of him talking about me, I am sick of him saying ‘This is coon; this is a buffoon.’ I am sick of him talking about Black people going to see movies. That is what he said: ‘You vote by what you see,’ as if Black people don’t know what they want to see’… Spike needs to shut the hell up!” Ouch! Let him have it Perry! [Hollywood Reporter]
