We’ve covered many people of a wide variety of backgrounds on our site, but it has come to my attention lately that yes, everyone and their mommas…and their momma’s mommas, are of Trinidadian descent.

We thought we would showcase a few folks, and while not everyone is literally a “favorite” of ours, we thought we’d show love anyway. Be ready to click!
Everyone’s favorite annoying yet voluptuous TV neighbor from “227,” Jackée Harry has been making a name for herself as an actress since her early days of acting on stage and since her first TV role on the show, “Another World” in the early ’80s.

They are some of Hollywood’s best kept secrets. These talented brothers and sisters can hold their own on the screen alongside the industry’s heavyweights and consistently give great performances.

“Act Like a Lady Think Like a Man” is inching closer and closer to its theatrical debut and the official trailer for the movie has just been released.
The cast of the film based on Steve Harvey’s controversial “Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man,” book is an interesting mix, from Gabrielle Union, Taraji P.
