Jilly from Philly may be heading to a television screen near you!

Grammy Award-winning songstress Jill Scott has been cast in the pilot for John Singleton’s “Snowfall,” a one-hour drama that takes place in Los Angeles during the early stages of the 1980s crack epidemic.

Variety reports that the potential series follows the stories of “Franklin Saint, a young street entrepreneur on a quest for power; Gustavo Zapata, a Mexican wrestler-turned-gangster in search of his American dream; and Logan Miller, a prominent family’s ‘black sheep’ desperate to escape his father’s shadow.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott accepted the role of Sharon “Cissy” Saint, Franklin’s no-nonsense mother who is experiencing frustration in both her personal and professional lives due to sacrifices she made in the past to give her son a better life. Scott’s Baggage Claim costar Lauren London has also been cast in the pilot as Franklin’s party-girl aunt.

The drama, which based on a script written by Singleton and Eric Amadio has been ordered by cable television channel FX.

“’Snowfall’ takes us on a wild ride through one of L.A.’s most fascinating cultural and social periods, and no one can tell this story better than John Singleton,” said FX President of Original Programming Eric Schrier back in May. “The pilot script by John and Eric brilliantly depicts the era through the story of three captivating characters, and we can’t wait to see John’s execution of it.”

“I have always been fascinated with that volatile moment in time before crack changed everything. It’s a tense, insane and sexy era that touched every aspect of our culture,” said Singleton.

Production for the pilot began this summer.

Does this sound like a series you would be interested in seeing?

Here's What Lauren London and Lil Wayne's Son Looks Like feat

We’ve known for some time that Lil Wayne and Lauren London have a son together. But that was all the information we had…up until this weekend.

Apparently Wayne and the son, Cameron were spending time together recently and he tweeted this picture.

Lauren London has been very clear about her desire to keep her son out of the public eye.  No pictures. And based on the fact that we haven’t seen him, it’s clear that Wayne had been following that directive.

Who knows what happened…maybe he wanted to show off his lil man or felt the picture was too cute to keep to himself. As cute as he is, I can understand wanting to share. He deleted the photo shortly after but not before people had a chance to get the screenshot.

So, how did Lauren London feel about her baby’s face all on the internet?

She took it in stride and tweeted this.

Yes! Adorable!

As long as she’s managed to keep him out of the public eye, we’re sure she knew the day was coming soon. We commend her for protecting her child but also can’t deny that we loved seeing his sweet, little face!

 

Instagram User Gets Shock Of Her Life When She Criticizes Christina Milian For Dating Lil Wayne On Her OWN Page, And Milian Responds

What are the chances that as an everyday person, you would make fun of a celebrity on your social media page, only for them to find out and respond? One woman got the shock of her life when she took a dig at Christina Milian and the women of “the circle.” The circle, according to this individual, is the group of women who all know each other, get along (for the most part), and oh yeah, either have children with Lil Wayne or have dated him. She posted a collage of all of the women, including his ex-wife Toya Wright, Nivea, Lauren London, Sarah Vivian and of course, Milian. She shared it with the caption, “These hoes love Wayne!!! #IJS #AllHisBabyMommas #ChristinaAndNiveaBothHaveBabiesByDream #TheCircle” In essence, she was trying to call the women, specifically Christina Milian, messy.

But things didn’t go the way she planned, because Christina Milian actually ended up being tagged in the collage, saw it, and responded with something short and simple: “Sho do.”

Once the woman saw that Milian had responded, she tried to backtrack on her statements: “@christinamilian no offense boo. its all love.”

But it was too late. Once Milian ended up commenting, her fans went on attack mode and started insulting the woman’s looks and calling her everything but a child of God. She eventually had to make a whole new post to defend herself.

“Post made #TheShadeRoom quick. Probably only because @christinamilian commented but now my neck is being chopped over it. Simply because I used the word hoes instead of females. Lmao. I really didn’t mean they were “hoes” but okay. Wayne refers to all his females as hoes but that dude is loved. Feeling like Wendy Williams right now. Lol. People claiming I got 5 seconds of fame. Lmfao. It’s IG. This ain’t sh*t.”

While I personally wouldn’t date a man who has a child with a woman whose ex-husband I used to be married to and whose children call my daughter their sister (waaaaay too complicated), people need to let these grown folks live. But what do you think of all this?

Who’s That Girl?: 15 Flirty & Stylish Lauren London Selfies

 Lauren London is a cutie pie and though she threw many fans off when she joined Lil Wayne’s baby mama cliche, we still have love for this ATL mommy! Peep some of her thoughts on being a black women, her relationship with Wayne and how she feels about her role as a mom.

Being a black woman, there’s so many different sides of us. We are funny, silly, romantic, professional, smart, and we have good jobs.

People see the ‘Lil’ Wayne’ persona and think they know who he really is. My son’s father is an intelligent, loving and lovable person who will always be a dear friend.

I’m a great mother because of my intentions on being a great mother; I’m a good friend because I’m loyal; I’m a good daughter because I’ve hopefully made my mother proud; I’m a great human being because I accept that there’s a spiritual being underneath it all. I’ve always been a woman of faith.

Lauren London is mother to one 5-year-old son, Cameron Carter, whom she had with rapper Lil Wayne, but over the weekend rumors starting brewing that the actress is soon to be a mother of two and is pregnant by another man of the mic.

We’re not sure where MediaTakeOut gets these stories but they do appear to be the originators of this tale that “The Game” star and Crenshaw rapper Nipsey Hussle have a bundle on the way. Though a lot of celebs let the gossip site’s lack of accuracy speak for itself, Lauren decided to take to Twitter and shut down this rumor herself, tweeting:

Nipsey Hussle also responded to the rumors — and directly to the source — with a tweet Lauren Retweeted saying:

Welp, there you have it. There’s no baby on the way, but it sounds like these two are working on some special project. We wonder what it could be.

 

Lauren London On Avoiding The Video Girl Curse & Skipping College

This past weekend, MadameNoire had the opportunity to attend the Disney Dreamers Academy hosted by Disney (obviously) in conjunction with Steve Harvey and Essence Magazine. As we’ve mentioned before, this event is meant to inspire students to pursue their dreams and encourage them to complete the necessary work to do so.

Throughout the weekend several celebrity guests stopped by to encourage these 100 high school students. And one of them was actress Lauren London. Lauren spoke to the students about the importance of having a positive attitude when she recalled the time she lost a poetry competition as a teenager. She said after she’d lost one of the judges came up to her and told her that based on her work alone, she would have won but her attitude was so stank, the judges felt the audience would relate to the other girl and so they gave the prize to her.

She learned from that experience and took the importance of having a positive attitude with her. That was certainly our experience when we spoke to her. A complete sweetheart.

In our interview with London she spoke to us about how she managed to avoid the video girl trap and the extra work a person will have to put in if they decide not to go to college.

See what she had to say in the video above.

Actress Sanaa Lathan has been a Hollywood staple since the late ’90s. While she has maintained consistent work since leaving the theater world behind and relocating to L.A., Nathan has kept her private life mostly private. The 42-year-old Best Man Holiday star dated football player Adewale Ogunyele for a few years but other than that, Lathan has kept her dating life to herself. A few months ago, she shared a photo of herself and San Francisco 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick out together on a romantic dinner date. No word on if the two are a couple or if it was just dinner with a friend.
