How do celebrity moms manage their careers and personal lives? During this episode of Moms on The Move, we explore a day in the life of Tichina Arnold. From gifting suites to glam squads and Golden Globe parties, we're able to see how she handles being a full-time actress and making time for her 11 year old daughter Alijah. Watch the video above and let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
On Sunday night, Taraji P. Henson took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Drama for Empire. But way before she was playing a formerly incarcerated crack dealer and a hungry businesswoman, Henson first caught everyone’s attention playing Yvette in 2001’s Baby Boy. She was the fed-up girlfriend of five years to Jody (played by Tyrese), and the mother of his son. And Henson had quite a few memorable scenes in the movie, including the “Let me smell ya d–k” scene.
It’s that specific scene Henson read in her audition tape, delivering lines with Tyrese more than 15 years ago when she was a young actress (in patchwork denim) trying to get her big break. It’s clear from the audition tape that Henson’s had tough acting chops for quite some time. The clip is almost comical to watch now, but it’s also awesome to see how far Henson has come and that she’s finally receiving the proper respect and dues.
When speaking on playing that classic character, Henson told the Los Angeles Times, “It felt like family. It didn’t feel like it was a job. I think that’s why Tyrese and I are still good friends to this day. We were like virgins to the game, together. It was the first feature film for both of us, and we were in leading positions. There were a lot of firsts — it was the first time being totally nude on film and pretending to have sex. We went through that together, and we met at a point in our lives when we had to connect and get through something together.”
Check out the audition tape for yourself if you missed it (it originally was shown during Henson’s Unsung Hollywood episode) and get ready to feel all types of nostalgic.
And in case you’ve never seen the real scene:
Last night, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler took to the stage to host the Golden Globes for the final time. The comedic duo always bring something interesting to the table when it comes to celebrities and pop culture. In case you missed the big event, here’s a rundown of the winners, surprising losers and unexpected antics.
Chrissy Teigen Becomes Meme After John Legend’s Golden Globes Win: “Sorry I Don’t Practice My Crying Face”
Chrissy Teigen looked rather uncomfortable as her husband, John Legend, was accepting his award for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture at the Golden Globes this evening. Of course, her tense facial expression was probably due to the neverousness on behalf of her husband and being overcome with emotion over the win, but you can always count on the Internet to catch those super uncomfortable moments and poke fun. So in no time, Chrissy was meme’d by Twitter. Check out some of the hilarious reactions to her facial expression below.

Thankfully, Chrissy is a great sport, who later grabbed her Golden Globe-winning husband and joined in on the fun.

John Legend and Common both have a lot to celebrate this evening as the two have scored a Golden Globe for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture for their song “Glory,” which has been featured on the soundtrack of Ava DuVernay’s Selma.
It was an emotional moment for both men who took time out while accepting their award to acknowledge issues of race and violence currently plaguing our nation.
“The first day I stepped on the set of ‘Selma,’ I began to feel like this was bigger than a movie,” Common said during his acceptance speech. “As I got to know the people of the Civil Rights Movement, I realized that I am the hopeful Black woman who was denied her right to vote. I am the caring White supporter killed on the front lines of freedom. I am the unarmed Black kid who maybe needed a hand, but instead was given a bullet. I am the two fallen police officers murdered in the line of duty. ‘Selma’ has awaken my humanity.”
“Selma is now,” he concluded.
John Legend, who revealed that he wasn’t called in to partake in the creation of the song until the last minute, also took advantage of the moment to shine light on social injustice.
“It’s so connected to what’s happening right now. We’re still in solidarity with those who are out there fighting for justice right now. We’re so grateful to write this song, hopefully as an inspiration to them.”
Well done, fellas!

You don’t have to watch every award show to understand the magnitude of the Golden Globes. Often thought as a precursor to earning an Academy Award nomination, entertainers from film and television hope to have their names called by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. With 2015 Golden Globes nominees announced, here are the surprises and snubs.
Well folks, the 2014 Golden Globes have come and gone with some expected wins and unexpected upsets. A night that brings together Hollywood’s best (determined by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association) in the realms of film and television, you just never know what can happen. One big question on the minds of viewers is how the winners are determined. Sure it boils down to a vote, but do numbers ever come into play? Does a film or television show have a higher chance of scoring an award if they put up huge earnings and ratings? You might think so, but just might be surprised. Here’s a look at some of the winners from last night’s 2014 Golden Globes.
Woody Allen’s Ex Mia Farrow And Son Respond To His Lifetime Achievement Award, Expose Further Sexual Abuse
If you endured the Golden Globes until the end, you probably saw Diane Keaton give a rather odd tribute to actor, screenwriter and director, Woody Allen, in which she sang the song all Girl Scouts know…”Make new friends but keep the old…” whatever. I had to mute my computer screen. I’m rather fond of Diane Keaton but I cannot get down with Woody Allen.
As I tweeted last night:
Woody Allen is the R Kelly of the film industry…but worse #GoldenGlobes

In case you don’t know Woody Allen was dating Mia Farrow for a decade when he began a relationship with Farrow’s adopted daughter Soon- Yi Previn. Farrow had adopted Soon-Yi with her ex Andre Previn. Farrow realized that the two were carrying on a romantic, though exploitative, relationship when she found nude photos of Soon-Yi in Allen’s possession. The couple claims they began seeing each other when she was 20 and the relationship with Allen and Farrow were just “going through the motions.” They married when she was 21.
So you can understand that Mia and her biological son with Allen, Ronan Farrow, weren’t too impressed with the Lifetime Achievement Award Woody Allen received during last night’s Golden Globes ceremony. (I use the word received lightly because Allen wasn’t there.) Both Mia and Ronan took to Twitter to share their thoughts about the honor bestowed to their estranged partner and father.
Time to grab some icecream & switch over to #GIRLS

Essentially, she was over it. But the real kicker came from Woody Allen’s biological son Ronan Farrow.
Missed the Woody Allen tribute – did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall? — Ronan Farrow (@RonanFarrow) January 13, 2014
Whoa! This was news to me. Now, we knew about Woody’s relationship with his now wife–the couple has been vocal in their justification of it– but apparently another one of Mia’s adopted children, Dylan, who now goes by another name, spoke to Vanity Fair, late last year, about the sexual abuse she endured from Allen growing up. Though Dylan said her fears of Allen are “crippling” and she does not like to speak his name or see his image, she decided to share, like she wished she’d had the courage to do when she was seven years old.
“I have never been asked to testify. If I could talk to the seven-year-old Dylan, I would tell her to be brave, to testify. There’s a lot I don’t remember, but what happened in the attic I remember. I remember what I was wearing and what I wasn’t wearing…The things making me uncomfortable were making me think I was a bad kid, because I didn’t want to do what my elder told me to do…I was cracking. I had to say something. I was seven. I was doing it because I was scared. I wanted it to stop.” For all she knew, she tells Orth, “this was how fathers treated their daughters. This was normal interaction, and I was not normal for feeling uncomfortable about it.”
Fret not all those viewers who were starting to wonder why Kerry Washington’s husband is never by her side at award shows. Though Nnamdi Asomugha didn’t walk alongside his expecting wife on the red carpet at the Golden Globes last night, we do know that he was in the building. Thanks to some photographer’s super sleuthing, this candid image of Kerry Washington introducing her hubby to “Fruitvale Station” star Melonie Diaz was caught on camera and, of course, we love it.
Last night was the first time Kerry Washington’s pregnancy was actually confirmed — thanks to the ever-growing baby bump she can no longer hide — and this photo is the first time we were able to see the proudly expectant mother and father. Kerry and Nnamdi weren’t the only expecting couple on the carpet though. Idris Elba also brought his new lady, Naiyan Garth, out to celebrate his “Luther” and “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” nominations with him and she looks like she’s even further along than Kerry.
So far neither couple has really acknowledged their pregnancies so we have no clue when they’re due, but trust that we’ll be watching for these baby bumps at the Oscar’s so we can make an educated guess on when these new bundles will enter the world.
Even though Dawn Richard has been hanging around the entertainment industry for a while now, one thing you can say for certain is she’s never been in any mess. Perhaps that’s because she keeps her thoughts to herself rather than her Twitter account, unlike some of her fellow celebs. *cough cough*
When Dawn dropped by the MN office yesterday to talk about her new album release, “Goldenheart,” we chatted with her about keeping her personal biz offline in a game of Tweet It or Not where the singer told us the things she’ll talk about on the net and the topics you’ll never catch in her timeline.
