The Pop Culture Periscope
Welcome to another week of Radar, ladies! Have you enjoyed the nice Spring weather? It was gorgeous, wasn’t it. The perfect time to try out that new pair of espadrilles, right? We know we did! Last week, we caught Oprah’s tearful interview with Naomi Campbell — featuring Campbell’s mother, who looked like she was 30 years old — cheered President Obama for forgiving Haiti’s debt, watched Mary J. Blige’s “Hood Love” video, as well as Suzie of “Basketball Wives” throwing a drink on a woman that disrespected her girl Jennifer’s marriage. This week, among other bits, comes the release of Queen Latifah, Paula Patton and Common’s turn in the romantic-sports-comedy, “Just Wright.” Go Team!
