Andre Showell, Angel Ellliott, Omarosa, Jawn Murray, Michelle Williams
Over the weekend I headed over to Busboy’s and Poets to grab a bite to eat before I checked out some of Howard Homecomings festivities. Andre Showell, BET White House Correspondent met up with me and we saw good friends Omarosa, Jawn Murray and Michelle Williams chillin’ on the top floor, staying out of the HU Homecoming fray.
Michelle just wrapped up her run as Roxie Hart in West-End’s production of Chicago, the musical was extended three additional dates so that the production could tour London….whats up next? A new CD along that has a similar sound to her last pop album Unexpected.

Nicole Kidman testifies
I love when entertainers use their celebrity for more than making movies or CD’s.
Oscar award winning actress and UN Goodwill Ambassador Nicole Kidman testified before the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on International Organizations, Human Rights and Oversight on the issue of violence against women. Three different panels implored Congress to pass the International Violence Against Women Act; Kidman being in the last group. The actress said;
“These champions need and deserve our support. Not with a box of band aids but with a comprehensive, well-funded approach that acknowledges that women’s rights are human rights … To succeed, it requires political will at the highest levels…After all, a life free of violence is a human right.”
The actress showed that she isn’t intimidated by pinstripes or policy when Congressman Rohrabacher asked her about Hollywood’s role in perpetuating violence against women. The actress calmly answered:
“I get offered films often that depict violence against women. And if I feel that it’s exploitive, or that would actually demean women, then I’m not interested, and I pass. I can’t be responsible for the whole of Hollywood, but I can certainly be responsible for my own career.”
Passage of the International Violence Against Women Act would influence United States foreign policy relations with countries who don’t respect women’s rights…
Can you think of any countries where that would pertain? Iran can.
Now that’s A-List.
