BOSSIP Hit The Scene For BET’s New Show ‘Black Card Revoked.’

Have you ever joked around with your friends and they told you your Black Card has been revoked?
What if we told you it’s not just a phrase but a card game that people play? Now, thanks to BET, it’s also a show. The new game show which is hosted by comedic actor Tony Rock, premieres on BET January 18th. The show is also Executive Produced by David A. Hurwitz. The 30 minute, 12 episode season was shot in Los Angeles and Bossip hit the scene to see the season finale in action.

When BOSSIP visited, Blac Chyna, DeRay Davis and LeToya Luckett were on set to test their blackness. They each had a contestant on their team who had the chance to win up to $ 10,000. The audience voted by a round of applause and there was only one person who got to keep their black card. Though we can’t tell you who won, we can tell you it was hilariously black.

The show has 3 rounds of trivia that is pulled from the card game and real-life surveys. It’s a blended, fun mix of pop culture, politics, historic facts and entertainment.

If you think you have what it takes to keep your black card, tune into BET every Thursday at 10/9c.

Mara Brock & Salim Akil’s ‘Love Is _’ Just Added 5 Series Regulars & We Can’t Wait For This Show! + ‘Black Lightning’ Debuts With Solid Ratings

The Young, Black, and Fabulous®

Mara Brock Akil and her husband Salim Akil just added a few actors to star in their upcoming OWN show “Love Is _.” Meanwhile, they’re superhero series "Black Lightning’ was welcomed with suburb ratings. Everything inside…

Mara Brock Akil and her husband Salim Akil’s “Love Is _” romantic dramedy is shaping up.

The OWN series just added 5 new series regulars to help tell the story about a power couple who’s working to navigate Black Hollywood. The new series is inspired their own relationship, so we expect this one to be extra good. Not that their other projects aren’t exceptional. Y’all know what we mean.

Idara Victor, Tyrone Brown, Kadeem Hardison, Lana Young and Yootha Wong-Loi-Sing will join previously announced series leads Michele Weaver, who plays Nuri, and Will Catlett, who plays Yasir.

The husband and wife power duo will serve as executive producers with Mara as showrunner and she’s writing the pilot.. Akil Productions will produce in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television. The passion project had originally been picked up by ABC, but since the script never made it to production, it was reworked for Oprah’s network.

Variety breaks down each new character’s role in the series:

Idara Victor has been cast in the role of Angela. A member of the same writing staff as Nuri, Angela doesn’t always agree with everything Nuri says, mainly because she is a disgruntled drama writer stuck in a comedy she doesn’t believe in. Victor has appeared on shows like “Law & Order,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “Mad Men.” She was also a series regular on the TNT series “Rizzoli & Isles” and recurred on all four seasons of AMC’s “TURN: Washington’s Spies.”

Tyrone Brown has been cast in the role of Sean. Sean possesses great taste and has a lot of opinions, but he lacks follow-through. He was the first one to spot Nuri as a catch and uses his best friend, Yasir, as a wingman to meet her. A year later, when he and Yasir cross paths with Nuri again, Sean is in a relationship and has a child with Camille, giving Yasir the opportunity to pursue Nuri. Brown has appeared on shows such as “Bull,” “Chicago PD,” and “The Affair.” he is repped by Innovative Artists and MKSD Talent Management.

Kadeem Hardison has been cast in the role of Norman. The executive producer of “Marvin,” Norman is a tough boss who is hard to impress and even harder to amuse. As the play-cousin to the star of the show, he’s under a lot of pressure, and he takes his frustrations out on his room of writers, pressing them all to dig a lot deeper into themselves before they’re all fired and replaced. Hardison has appeared on shows such as “Between Brothers,” “House M.D.,” “Abby,” “Just For Kicks,” “Girlfriends,” and “Everybody Hates Chris.”

Yootha Wong-Loi-Sing has been cast in the role of Ruby. Ruby is Yasir’s on-and-off girlfriend; they came to L.A. to chase their dreams, but hers are idling and Yasir’s never got any traction. Worn out, she’s acerbic and moody and fed up that Yasir still does not have a job. She winds up gently set aside when Yasir pairs off (for life) with Nuri. Sing is a Dutch actress and played lead roles on the big screen in the Dutch horror thriller “Sneekweek” and the comedy “Alles Voor Elkaar.”

Lana Young has been cast in the role of Nuri in the year 2027. Nuri is first seen in 2027, in her 50s, relaxed, happy, and comfortable in her life and her 32-year marriage to Yasir. She has appeared in the recurring roles of Mrs. Douglas in “The Vampire Diaries,” Dr. Jacinta Butler in OWN’s “Greenleaf,” and Gloria Ruiz in “The Inspectors.”

Sounds interesting.

H&M Model & Parents Forced To Move Due To Safety Concerns + Black Greek Judges Collaborate To Fight Prison Statistics

The Young, Black, and Fabulous®

 photo boymodel.jpg

The young H&M model who’s been all in the news and his parents have moved from their homes for safety reasons. In other news, a group of black Delta & AKA judges have joined forces to help combat the pipeline to prison statistics. Everything inside…

The H&M monkey fiasco has forced the young boy, his mother and father out of their home sadly.

The young black boy, named Liam Mango, was thrusted in the midst of controversy for the hoodie he wore in H&M’s campaign that read, “coolest monkey in the jungle.” Folks were up in arms, firing off social media posts bashing the company and all. Celebrities even backed out of partnerships with the retail giant.

Following the backlash, Liam’s mom hopped on social media, urging folks to “get over it” because the ad "wasn’t racist."

Now, Liam and his parents feel unsafe in their home in Stockholm, Sweden so they have reportedly moved out over “security concerns.”

Liam’s mom spoke with the BBC and said the protests that went down in South Africa also played a role in why they decided to leave their home. However, it’s unclear if there were any incidents that went down in their own hometown.

It’s probably a good idea they lay low for a while until things die down, especially with the mother being so vocal about how the shirt isn’t racist and folks are just making a big deal out of nothing.

Also, after H&M issued an apology for the incident, they’re also making changes in the company.

They have reportedly hired a diversity leader "to drive [their] work forward," following an internal review.

We’re confused as to why they need a diversity leader to tell them the "coolest monkey in the jungle" phrase on a black boy may not be the best move. Sounds like they have bigger fish to fry internally if that’s the case.

In good news…

Four black female judges, who are members of Delta Sigma Theta and Alpha Kappa Alpha, have joined forces to fight the prison problem that plague young African-Americans.

The “school to prison pipeline” statistics are quite disturbing as they prove black children are funneled out of public schools straight to the criminal justice system via petty crime arrests that eventually lead ti them becoming a ward of the system. Well, these ladies have created a program to help with the staggering numbers.

The ladies — Judge Shequitta Kelly, Judge Amber Givens-Davis, Judge Stephanie Mitchell and Judge Lisa Green — have created “Pipeline to Possibilities,” a program that focuses on changing the pipeline to prison in the local school system around Dallas. Through the program, youth are educated on various aspects of the justice system and taught life skills, redirecting them from engaging in criminal behavior.

Nice! For more information on their initiative click here.

WELP: Man Arrested At Airport For Wearing 10 Layers Of Clothes To Avoid Luggage Fees

Ryan Hawaii Goes Viral For Wearing 10 Layers Of Clothes At Airport

A British man recently went viral after he decided to avoid baggage fees in a creative way. Ryan Williams a.k.a. “Ryan Hawaii” was held at Iceland Keflavik airport because he decided to wear every article of clothing he couldn’t fit in his checked bag. The clothing turned out to be eight pairs of pants and 10 shirts.

According to The Daily Mail, Williams was reportedly trying to avoid additional baggage fees and at first, claimed that British Airlines was racial profiling him by not letting him board.

He then alleged that he was unfairly arrested and maced by police.

After being escorted from the airport, Hawaii returned two days later to try out the layered clothing tactic with another airline; Easy Jet. That apparently also failed miserably.

Hawaii has since clarified that he didn’t pile on his clothes to be funny, but because he was temporarily homeless and couldn’t afford the fee.

Well damn.

Both British Airways and EasyJet refunded Hawaii after the debacle and he was sent home on Norwegian Airlines.
