Set on the backdrop of Philadelphia's famed Overbrook High School, we track the lives of the nations number one high school basketball player Sergio Taylor as he deals with the early pressures of hood fame. His older brother June (Cory Hardrict) who had basketball dreams of his own, but after the death of their father he resorted to the allure of the streets to fill the financial void in the home. Finally, their sister Jackie (Keke Palmer) the princess of the bunch who has strong ambitions to pursue a musical career, but is suddenly side tracked by an unexpected encounter with teenage love. This story takes place in a city where the life expectancy of a black male is twenty-five years of age. A city that had over four hundred murders last year alone, and where the unemployment rate is at an all time high. This story is painted with a kaleidoscope of music, sports, and characters that will bring the last two generation closer together by allowing them to see the inner lives of our youths in the journey of Brotherly Love.
It's expected to hit theaters April 24th.
While posing it up for the photogs, the upcoming Scream Queens star rocked a green Jonathan Simkhai dress, Chelsea Paris Footwear sandals topped with a printed Open Ceremony jacket. Cute look.

"Empire" star Jussie Smollett was in Charlotte this weekend for a good cause.

"RHOA" star Kenya Moore stopped by "WWHL" where she lashed out at co-star Phaedra Parks, labeling her a cheater. Watch the clips inside and find out why Sundy Carter is leaving "BBW LA."
Former Miss USA Kenya Moore didn't pull any punches during her appearance on "WWHL" last night. Appearing alongside host Andy Cohen and "Fashion Queens" stars Miss Lawrence and Derek J, Kenya spent several segments unpacking her issues with co-star Phaedra Parks, whom she blames for branding her a "whore" during seasons 5 and 6 of the series.
While Kenya and Andy went back and forth regarding Apollo Nida's credibility (he started the cheating rumor), her most pointed criticism (and best sound bite) came during an exclusive interview (below) uploaded to Bravo.com prior to the airing of "WWHL".
On the clip, Kenya responds to Apollo accusing Phaedra of cheating with this dagger - "It appears as though she (Phaedra) was the biggest whore in the book."
She goes on ask, "What type of person tries to go out of their way to make you look bad when they're doing worse? I'm not married and I haven't done the things she's accusing me of. She needs to look at herself.
Now.....back to the show:
Kenya chatted it up with Andy in a Cushnie Et Ochs dress and Stuart Weitzman shoes.
Miss Lawrence rocked a Versace jacket, top and pants from Zara and Rene Cahuilla shoes.
Derek J wore a Gucci caftan, high and low leather joggers by Gap, a black American Apparel tee and Manolo Blahnik shoes.
On social media, Vivica A Fox chimed in calling Kenya a #ToxicTrick for stealing her phone during "Celebrity Apprentice" (revisit the drama here).
Kenya explains why she believes Apollo:

Looks like we have the first pic of Rihanna and Leonardo DiCaprio together as the two partied at her surprise birthday bash. Check it inside…
So…we heard Leonardo DiCaprio was celebrating with Rihanna for her birthday, but there weren’t any pics of the two together…until now.
For her 27th birthday, Rihanna was surprised with a private birthday bash thrown by her friend/1OAK nightclub owner Richie Akiva (who is also good friends with Leo) in L.A. We hear, Leo reportedly helped organize the soiree as well. Word has it, she was right by his side the entire night. Mmmhmm....
We can't post the pictures, so check them out for yourself HERE.
As you may know, Rih and Leo have been making headlines with rumors of a budding romance. They were reportedly “boo’d up” at the Playboy mansion last month. Then a few weeks later, Rih was spotted arriving at the Wolf of Wallstreet actor’s home around 1 AM before linking up at Up and Down nightclub to party.
Neither of them have confirmed whether they're dating or not, but if they are, we think it's a good look.
