Deja Vu Like A Mug: Check Out A Clip From LisaRaye’s New Movie, “Lapdance,” Where She Stars As A Stripper…Again
It must be really hard out here for actresses…especially black actresses, because there is no reason for another movie based around the seedy/troubled lives of strippers to come out. And definitely no need for another one starring LisaRaye. But alas, that’s what we can expect as a clip from the new movie Lapdance has surfaced, thanks to Carlton Jordan. In it, we see that Lynn Whitfield, as well as Carmen Electra, Obba Babatundé, and Stacey Dash, who plays a doctor in the movie. I guess these two ladies were able to get over their squabbles from the time they fell out while filming Single Ladies.
According to MissJia, LisaRaye actually stars as an aspiring actress who has to make money as a stripper in order to help pay the medical bills of her father, who is battling cancer. Things get ugly when her career choice affects her relationship with her fiance. Whitfield and Babatundé seem to be the people behind the strip club she works at, and Whitfield definitely shows her feisty side with this dialogue…chicks better have her money.
I’m a little disappointed that Whitfield, known for her great acting work in movies like Eve’s Bayou and The Josephine Baker Story, is doing movies like this, and that even LisaRaye has found herself in this same ‘ol, same ‘ol role. And the clip is doing the most. Why is the dressing room the smallest one in history? Why do the strippers look like they’re the age of somebody’s grandmother? And why is Whitfield talking like a Southern pimp?
Maybe you can answer these questions and more for me after you check out the preview of the movie above. Do share your thoughts below!
‘I Wouldn’t Care If You Were A Prostitute, And You Hit Every Man That You Ever Knew…’ Celebs Who Don’t Care About Their Woman’s Past
Women like to shade other ladies with questionable or busy pasts, but it’s clear a lot of men don’t feel the same way. These 15 celebrities didn’t care where their boo-thangs had been before they dated, slept with, or married them — and they don’t care what we have to say about it either.
We couldn’t start this list without acknowledging the man who inspired the headline. When you come out with a song titled, “Prostitute Flange” and announce, “I Wouldn’t Care If You Were a Prostitute and You Hit Every Man That You Ever Knew. See It Wouldn’t Make A Difference If That Was Way Before Me And You Girl,” you can only assume he’s living what he’s rapping about. We can’t say if he was literally speaking on the past of ex-girlfriend Trina, who joined him on that track, but every now and again Weezy’s face pops up in an Instagram pic with a random groupie, and that special relationship he has with Superhead is oh so suspect.
Whatever tricks a dancer at the Penthouse Club in Philadelphia has up her sleeve, I need to learn. Or maybe not, because a result of the stripper busting it open for a real patron, the gentleman’s club is now being sued by the customer who alleges the pole dancer twerked it on him so bad he had to have surgery.
According to KTLA news in LA:
Patrick Gallagher claims he and his friends went to the Philadelphia-area Penthouse Club for his bachelor party back in 2010. His bachelor’s package included a special performance from a stripper.
During the dance, Gallagher was laying on the stage when the stripper slid down a pole with such force that she ruptured his bladder upon landing, according to the lawsuit.
The next morning Gallagher went to the hospital where he was told he had suffered internal bleeding and underwent surgery, the lawsuit said.
Gallagher also says he suffered nerve damage to his back and hip. He is now seeking $50,000 for medical costs, pain, humiliation and mental anguish.
Um Pat, maybe you should have stayed in your seat with the rest of the customers. I know strippers can go pretty hard, but when bladders are getting ruptured, either you are too old to be there in the first place, or someone is working way too hard for their money. I’m just curious how Patrick explained this whole situation to his fiancee.

If the caption from the above photo doesn’t sum up our feelings about Channing Tatum, then just plainly saying he’s a smokin’ piece of eye candy should do the trick. As corny as Step Up was back in the day, we can’t deny that we were giving him the eye throughout it with his slick dance moves and smile. To our surprise, that wack movie didn’t keep him down, and he’s gotten bigger and bigger, and cuter and cuter as the years have gone by. Don’t believe us? Check the gallery and I’m sure you will…
Well, let’s make that a former NBA player and now coach.
Mark Jackson, former member of the New York Knicks (and Indiana Pacers but that’s an afterthought), former ABC/ESPN announcer and current head coach of the Golden State Warriors found himself in the midst of an extortion plot after carrying on an affair with stripper Alexis Adams in 2006. What he didn’t expect after he ended the affair, which lasted less than one year, was that Adams would hold on to everything he’d sent to her and use it against him.
According to The Smoking Gun, Adams and a co-conspirator, Marcus Shaw, set up an initial plan in April which ended up with Jackson being approached by Shaw with pictures he’d sent to Adams of his “private area” and demanded he fork over $5,000. Mark did so with no hesitation because he’s been married for 22 years to Desiree Coleman-Jackson and is also…an ordained minister. However, that wasn’t enough for Adams and Shaw.
Two weeks later, Shaw emailed Jackson’s wife to give her the first opportunity to buy extra pictures he had before selling them to the public. He further added that he wasn’t trying to hurt her but “this is business, nothing personal.” This all became too much for Jackson who then turned to the FBI for help. They quickly turned this into an extortion sting and after all was said and done, Shaw had asked for $200,000 to which Jackson agreed to pay. It can only be assumed that when the exchange was supposed to take place, undercover agents were right on the scene to pick up Shaw and later, Ms. Adams.
What an embarrassing nightmare. It’s one thing to cheat (which we know isn’t right) but it is something entirely different to cheat with a stripper and then get caught in an extortion case. You either need to keep it in your pants or be smarter about who you’re “sharing” with.
Before you ask, yes his wife has been standing by his side through it all. After all, he was a huge star in his prime; do you think this is the first time she’s heard about extramarital affairs?
I’m always surprised after I watch an Amber Rose interview. I remember the first time I ever heard her even speak was in an interview she did with Bossip this summer. I was pleasantly surprised. As much as I was ready to count her off as just another former girlfriend, turned household name for no good reason, I couldn’t help but notice that she seemed like a genuinely nice person.
It was shocking.
So when I saw that she appeared on the Wendy Williams show earlier this week, I must admit I was excited to see what she had to say. And that Bossip interview wasn’t a fluke. Once again the woman was down right charming!
Read what she and Wendy talked about below:
Wendy Williams : Do you think Kanye West wants you back?
Amber Rose: I don’t care.
Will you ever get back with Kanye?
I will never get back with Kanye, there’s no way. I want to be with Wiz [Khalifa] for the rest of my life.
Are you and Wiz married?
No, we’re not married.
Do you believe in marriage?
I never did until I met Wiz. I really didn’t. Every relationship that I ever had, especially being a stripper since I was 15 years-old I never thought it would happen for me.
What happened to your reality show?
When you do a pilot for a reality show you present it to the network then their like either ‘we love it or we don’t’. They loved my pilot but they wanted me to be somebody that I’m not. In this business you could either sell your soul for money or you can do what they tell you to do. I just decided to take another route and just be myself. I have to do what makes me happy and I have to sleep at night, so I can’t sell out.
On rumors that she was the reason Reggie Bush left Kim Kardashian
One thing about me is that I’m not a home wrecker. I would never date a man that’s in a relationship or a married man. I broke up with Kanye and he broke up with Kim and we met right after. We were both going through a hard time so we we were like each other’s rebounds basically. It was brief, it was nice and he’s a great guy.
On whether Kim K slept with Kanye
Come on. You know. We will keep it cute
Were you paid off not to speak when you and Kanye’s relationship dissolved?
No. I can say whatever I want about Kanye. I can say whatever I want about our relationship. I’m not into that; I always like to take the high road. I’m a very positive, very spiritual person and I believe in Karma. Whatever happened in our relationship, I don’t feel the need to write a book or dog him out or anything like that. I just want to keep it moving.Is it difficult for you to have girl friends?Yeah, it’s very difficult. I had an assistant, which I thought was one of my best friends and she became obsessed with me. She became a stalker. She was listening to Wiz more than I listened to Wiz. She had Wiz stickers all over, she shaved her head and it was weird and crazy.

Ask a lot of people what is one thing they wouldn’t do for money, and a lot of folks say being a stripper. There’s something about putting your goods on display for complete strangers that gets the degrading stamp and a boo boo face from some people. But if you ask NeNe Leakes, it isn’t anything to look down upon whatsoever. In fact, it’s fun. During an interview with Bravo and the cast of The Real Housewives Atlanta, she broke down her past in the exotic dancing world as a 20-something mother like this:
“I sold a fantasy, not p—y. Like that’s just what it was. I just felt very powerful. I made a ton of f–king money, like I just couldn’t stop. I went and bought a brand new car, I was paying my son’s tuition. I thought of the men as an ATM machine. I gotta tell ya, I liked it.”
But Leakes is not the first celebrity to get their start dropping it like it’s hot only to leave it all behind for big fame and success. There have been a good number of high-profile folks who have tried their hand at the profession for a short time. If you were wondering who those folks are, keep on clicking!
Just after a friend sent me an email about how Hot she felt after a pole dancing class, I see “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Nene Leakes dishing on how she felt empowered back in her stripper days.
She told Essence.com, “I sold a fantasy, not p***y. I felt powerful. I made a ton of money and I couldn’t stop. I went and bought a brand new car, I was paying for my son’s tuition. I thought of the men as an ATM machine.” Now I know why she gets along with Kandi.
Is it just me, or has she told this story before? Anyway, I’m sure there’s a huge diff between playing on the pole and working it, but I can see how you could get caught up in the money and providing a fantasy to men willing to turn over their paychecks for a tease. What do think about Nene’s comments. Do you support pole dancing, either for real or sport?
