Remember Leon from “The Five Heartbeats,” “Temptations,” “Cool Runnings,” and “Waiting To Exhale”? Well we found our favorite actor and asked him plain and simple: where you been?
Leon hasn’t exactly disappeared, but it’s been a hot minute since we’ve seen him on our TV screens, let alone the big screen, so we reached out to see what the 52-year-old has been up to lately and what he has in the works. We also asked Leon about his daughter with Cynthia on Real Housewives of Atlanta and if he’s as worried about her dating as her mom is. Check out the video above and tell us what you think. Have you been missing Leon?
Remember Bodie from The Wire? We’ve found him!
It’s been six years since the hit HBO show The Wire went off the air but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten our favorite characters. Thankfully, we were able to catch up with one of them a few weeks ago in NYC. JD Williams may have been known as a tough drug dealer on TV but he was nothing but sweet when we met him in person and asked him plainly: “Where You Been?” From producing projects behind the scenes to acting in new television shows, it appears JD has actually been quite a few places, we just didn’t know it.
Watch our interview up top to see what the 35-year-old actor is up to these days and whether he feels like The Wire got robbed in terms of Hollywood recognition. Plus check out more interviews from our Where You Been? series here.
Do you miss seeing JD Williams on your screens every week?
Though we know one half of one of our favorite childhood duos, Kenan and Kel, is doing their thing on Saturday Night Live, life just hasn’t seemed right without knowing where the other half, Kel Mitchell is. Thankfully, we’ve caught up with the fictitious orange soda loving star of “All That, “Kenan and Kel,” and “Good Burger,” to ask him, hey, where you been??
The now 35-year-old twice-married father of two told us he’s very much still active in the entertainment biz, producing, directing, and of course acting. He also told us he tried out for SNL, but unfortunately didn’t make the cut (which he’s glad about) and spoke on his rumored beef with Kenan and his comments on black women not being ready for the show. Check out Kel’s comments on all those things and more in the video above. Have you missed Kel as much as we have?
Remember Changing Faces? Better yet, remember the 1994 hit “Stroke You Up” by the R&B duo…”Would you mind if I stroke you up (I don’t mind)”?
When the Millennium came and went, so did Cassandra Lucas and Charisse Rose, but we’ve found one half of the sultry female group and she’s here to catch us up on where she’s been these past 15 years and what happened to Changing Faces after their ’97 hit ”G.H.E.T.T.O.U.T.” Check out the video up top with Cassandra Lucas of Changing Faces as we ask her “Where You Been?”
MN’s popular series “Where You Been?” is back and the first long lost star we’re featuring is actress Kyla Pratt. Though Miss Pratt is currently starring on the BET series “Let’s Stay Together,” the child star went on a bit of a break between her role on “One On One” and this new series, so we wanted to catch up with her and see what all she’d been doing in her downtime — besides becoming a mother.
This past weekend we found out Kyla is actually now the mother of two little girls — having given birth again this past August — but is she planning on jumping the broom with her daughters’ father any time soon? Kyla answers that question in the video above, plus shuts down rumors about men she’s dated in the industry and explains why she keeps her private life so, well, private.
What do you think?
We already told you guys that we’re Living Single obsessed, right? If you haven’t checked out our interviews with Kyle (T.C. Carson) and Sinclair (Kim Coles) already, please do. This time, we got Cress Williams aka “Scooter” on the hot seat. We pretty much already know what Williams has been up to as he’s been steadily working on television since he made his popular appearance on Living Single as Khadijah’s love interest, but we still wanted to catch up with him to reminisce about the good ol’ days on set. Check out the interview and make sure to check him out on his current stint in “Hart of Dixie” on the CW network.

As you can tell here at Madame Noire, we’re huge fans of Living Single which is why we’ve made it our personal mission to track down every cast member and see what they’ve been up to (we’re still waiting for you to hit us up Maxine Shaw!)
Check out our interview with T.C. Carson, who played the ever-debonair Kyle Barker, on the show, who tells us what the days were like on the set of Living Single and what he’s been working on these days.
We just know that you remember girl group Jade. From the waist-length box braids to their hits “Don’t Walk Away” and “One Woman” Jade had going on in the ’90′s. If you’re a fan of true R&B, you’re probably wondering what ever happened to those girls. Well, we’re about to answer some of those burning questions. We caught up with founding Jade member Joi and asked her where you been?
How much do ya’ll miss Girlfriends?
It’s obvious that we’re big fans of the long-gone show here at Madame Noire. It is one of the few shows to ever really address friendships amongst Black women. And, of course, besides the ladies, we loved Reggie Hayes‘ funny, adorable, nerdy presence on the sitcom. He played “William,” the corky sidekick to Joan Clayton and the gals.
When we caught up with Reggie Hayes recently, we were a little disappointed to hear that he didn’t stay in contact with his former castmates. Although we haven’t been doing our “Where You Been” series too long, we’d have to say this is one of the most interesting installments we’ve done. See what Reggie Hayes has to say about what he’s been up to and his outlook for his acting career. We certainly hope to see his original, dynamic, on-screen personality again on television.

Although we’ve seen a lot of former 3LW members Naturi Naughton and Adrienne Bailey as of late, we haven’t heard as much from Kiely Williams. According to the former Cheetah Girl, she likes to keep a low profile and is now focused on working with other artists instead of being in the limelight. Peep the interview where she talks about her musical roots, which group members she keeps in touch with, and the backlack to her single “Spectacular.”
