Queen Latifah, who'll cease production of "The Queen Latifah Show" at the end of the season, dedicates today's show (about personal heroes) to her mom Rita Owens, a former high school teacher.  Earlier this year, Queen Latifah opened up to PEOPLE, revealing that Rita lives with scleroderma, an incurable autoimmune disease that has caused scar tissue build up (pulmonary fibrosis) in her lungs, pulmonary hypertension (blood pressure in the lungs) and she has difficulty breathing.

The entire hour is a celebration of Rita and the many people who look to her as a role model, moral compass and mentor.  While thanking her mom for supporting her and her career, Queen Latifah was brought to tears...

I screen shot this image months ago. Artist unknown. It moved me for many reasons. One being ....brokenness. Today I feel a sense of brokenness on behalf of my people. Black people. Everyone expresses differently. I respect all forms and shapes of expression. I respect those who don't see this as a matter of black and white, who think "unity and peace" will save us all from this, who's optimism in the heart of the gut wrench still seems to have a place...Although I feel differently, I respect it all. We were not molded here, to all be molded the same......My words are like aimless shapes and figures at this time. Trying to find a place to go, something to hold on to, to make "sense" of this all. But the one thing that's been concrete in my heart is my will to want to express something to my friends. To the people I love, who love me, who feel pain in this moment just as I do, but who do not feel pain in the way that I often do in many walks of life. Who might feel I talk about race too much, that it's consumed me, who I've distanced myself from....because it's true, I can't a joke. When I told a friend of mine I was making an album about race, his response was...."Just make it fun". I would like him to think about it now. We are not Michael Browns family, but we are Michael Browns family. We don't hurt like they do, but we do hurt. Hurt like hell. Thing about my people though....we don't stay broken. We get up. We put the pieces together when there aren't even pieces to pick up.......and we will......again and again and again.

Left: A picture of EMMITT TILL in his casket after his racist murder in 1955... His mother wanted his casket open so THE WORLD could see what was done to him & forever know that there would NEVER be justice for BLACKS in America. Right: a picture of Emmitt Till taken by his mother not long before his murder. Countless murders, in-justices & abused authority by people who we share the same country with... A country that has filled our heads with all these BULLSHIT lies for God knows how many years all while minutes, hours, days, weeks, months & years pass while we sit back HOPING that this time will be DIFFERENT. Well guess what, this time won't be DIFFERENT & if you believe that the next time will be you are a FUCKING IDIOT !!!! I AM NOT A RACIST... I don't have a problem with any race.... My PROBLEM is with my country !!! A country that puts us through countless years of education, training our young minds to believe the HISTORY they have implemented into these books filled with lies & stories that have been switched around to cover up what has really transpired in this country who's anthem we sing at games & special events praising something we are SUPPOSED TO HAVE FAITH & BELIEVE IN only to watch these MOTHERFUCKERS teach us the same lesson OVER & OVER & OVER again !!! When the fuck will WE LEARN... ANSWER: NEVER !!! Because hoping, believing & wishing that a better day will come has taken up too much of our time, prayers & lives for me to actually waste another moment believing in the very country I live in... So as I write this, know that I just walked pass my grandmother on her knees praying for the family of MIKE BROWN & the only thing I could think to do in that moment was tell her to STAND UP !!! That's right, STAND UP !!! STAND UP like Martin Luther King Jr. did on that balcony the day they shot him down !!! STAND UP like Malcolm X did at that podium before shotgun blasts took his life away. STAND UP for once in your fucking life & u know what, If STANDING UP costs US our lives then guess what... We then become what so many that died FIGHTING FOR US were... REAL PEOPLE !!! (To Be Continued if Instagram doesn't delete this 1st). #FuckAmerica

SISTER TO SISTER: Tasha Smith FILES Restraining Order Against Estranged Husband, Spotted At Court Getting SUPPORT From Tisha Campbell-Martin

 photo yothem1.jpg

"For Better Or Worse" star Tasha Smith headed into court yesterday, requesting a restraining order against her husband, with good friend Tisha Campbell tagging along as a character witness.  Plus, Tasha recently revealed how she had to act a fool at the nail shop.  More inside...

 photo jayrock4.jpg

The nasty split between Tasha Smith and estranged husband Keith Douglas waged on in a Van Nuys courtroom yesterday as the actress made her way to the courthouse and requested a restraining order. 

The legal order wouldn't be the first to hit the Smith/Douglas household (they still live together) as Keith ALREADY has a restraining order in place.  It requires Tasha to stay at least 100 yards away from him (outside of the home) and at least 2 yards when they are at home.   

In documents she filed a few weeks ago, Tasha said Keith has flown into jealous rages, calling her a "f***ing d**e" and accusing her of sleeping with women! "When he's in a rage, I feel that he is capable of killing me."

During yesterday's hearing, Tasha called in one of her famous friends, Tisha Campbell Martin, for moral support.  The two were seen offering one another emotional support outside of the courtroom.  We'll keep you posted on the court's ruling.

On a happier note, Tasha will appear on today's episode of "The Real" where she talks about one of her latest gigs, playing the role of 50 Cent's "baby mama" on season 2 of the hit show "Power." Also, she plays a game called "Do You Trust Him of Check Him?"  During the game, we get to see her "other" side and how she responds to relationship stress.   Maybe this is a glimpse of what Keith might have experienced?

 

And for another "dose" of Tasha, watch her explain what happened when she "popped off" at the nail salon...
