A Different World was added to Netflix recently, becoming popular all over again. Newer generations can watch what life is like at a historically Black college or university as well as witness other relatable experiences to most young people. However, there are plenty of behind-the-scenes secrets you all might not know about this college-set sitcom, which was a direct spin-off of The Cosby Show.
Memba when Cree Summer and Kadeem Hardison were a couple #IRL? Us neither, but #FreddieBrooks and #DwayneWayne were @imanidawson's two favorite #ADifferentWorld characters.

Thanks to Tribe Called Curl, I learned a new fun fact today. This might be old news to some of you, but I had no idea (or had forgotten) that Kadeem Hardison (Dwayne Wayne) and Cree Summer (Freddie Brooks) dated in real life.
Many of us watched the show and remember the undeniable chemistry between Dwayne and Whitley. So we were completely preoccupied with whether or not they were dating in real life. Turns out, it was another cast member who had his heart.
For those, like me, who didn’t know and need receipts, here they are. So, two years ago, Essence asked Hardison if it was awkward playing Jasmine Guy’s love interest while dating Cree Summer.
That wasn’t even my concern at the time. Dominic [Hoffman], Jasmine’s boyfriend at the time, did some spots on the show. It’s like you have your work wife and home wife. But your home wife also happens to work with you. As much as that could have been sticky, they were so in love with each, it was never an issue. Good God, if you thought me and Darryl (Ron) were close, he and Jasmine were inseparable. They brought out the silliness in each other.
According to People, who spoke with both Hardison and Summer, the two only dated for a year but there are plenty of images capturing their union, including this one Cree recently posted on her Instagram page.
Being that so many of us believed in Whitley and Dwayne’s love, one of my coworkers had a hard time seeing these two together.
I think they were pretty adorable.
Aahhh…days gone by.
The NBA playoff season is heating up with the Miami Heat looking to three-peat while fighting off championship contenders such as the Oklahoma City Thunders, Houston Rockets and the Brooklyn Nets. In honor of this exciting time of year, we take a look at some of our favorite basketball movies.
He Got Game
Spike Lee and Denzel Washington have collaborated on several films together including his 1997 film He Got Game. Washington played Jake Shuttleworth, a prison inmate and the father of the country’s top high school basketball star who was granted a one-week parole release to convince his son to play for the governor’s alma mater. Real life NBA player Ray Allen made his debut into film as the star player Jesus Shuttleworth but he wasn’t the only hoops star cast in the movie. Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal, Reggie Miller, Rick Fox, Charles Barkley, Scottie Pippen and Bill Walton also appeared in the film.

We know we’re not the only ones who noticed the insane chemistry between Chante Moore and her ex-husband, Kadeem Hardison, on “R&B Divas LA” this past season. The pair, who have a 17-year-old daughter together, seem to get along better than most married couples do, which is why when Chante came into the office we had to ask her, “girl, what’s up with y’all”?
Miss Moore gave us a heart-warmingly sweet answer when it came to talking about her ex-boo and the nature of their relationship, but to be honest we still don’t understand why these two couldn’t make it work. Check out the video below and tell us if you get it. Do you think Chante and Kadeem should get back together?
Known for being a show created by Bill Cosby, as a spin-off of “The Cosby Show,” “A Different World” went on to become one of the longest running black sitcoms.

Here are 10 memorable episodes from one of our favorite black shows.
