Black-Ish Star Anthony Anderson Featured On the Cover Of EMMY Magazine October Issue

Anthony Anderson, star and executive producer of the new ABC fall comedy series black-ish, appears on the cover of award-winning emmy® magazine, the Television Academy’s “must read” journal which hits newsstands today.
The actor is suave in a white-on-white Dolce & Gabbana linen suit, silk pointed tie and Ted Baker London shirt. 
For exclusive photos and video of behind-the-scenes moments from Anderson’s photo shoot, visit TelevisionAcademy.com, the Academy’s award-winning website.
The narrative behind ABC’s new comedy black-ish hits close to home for the comedian, who portrays a successful father struggling to make sure his privileged children remember where they’ve come from.
“I was dealing with my son coming home and saying he doesn’t feel black,” Anderson recalls. “
At the tail end of a heart-to-heart conversation about my unprivileged struggle growing up in Compton, California, versus my son’s privileged struggle growing up in the Valley and knowing nothing but private school, he said, ‘Dad, for my birthday, I want a bar mitzvah.’” Looking back, the actor is able to laugh at the memory, but at the time he responded, “Oh, so you really aren’tblack.’”
black-ish “has a real point of view,” shares Laurence Fishburne, who both executive-produces the series and plays Anderson’s old-school dad. “And although it appears to be a point of view about race, it’s really about class, success and generational differences more than anything else.” Adds writer-producer Kenya Barris, “That’s really what I wanted to say with this show, that we are the sum of all our parts, and we should acknowledge that.”
All that said, black-ish “…is not indicative of just one culture and one race of people,” Anderson concludes. “It’s inclusive. Everybody’s dealing with a little ‘ish’ in their lives.”

"Catfish" Star Nev Schulman Gives Larry King The Rundown On How To Avoid Getting Catfished

IMG_0473.JPG

Nev Schulman, star of the MTV show "Catfish," stopped by the Larry King Now show to give some pointers to Larry on how to stay "Catfish" free. Speaking from his own "Catfish" experience, he talks about the warning signs of being a "Catfish" victim, why our digital lives may be making us less empathetic and the drama that comes with online relationships.

“When we curate our emotions based on what’s easy for us, we lose touch with the ability to connect with people who are going through something difficult” Schulman said.

On his thought process before sharing something with the worldwide web:
 
“Whenever I’m in a situation that I’m excited about, I say to myself ‘Why do you need to take a picture of this? Why do you need to share this with other people, instead of just being here, being present, and really taking it in for yourself?’

 
Nev finished his interview with Larry King by answering social media questions from some of his biggest fans.
 
 


A few words of advice from Nev:


“Even if the person that you’ve been talking to via social media is exactly who they’ve presented themselves to be, you’re never going to get what you expect because even when you're face-to-face, relationships change. People change. Some are more honest than others, and you can never account for chemistry or attraction or awkwardness."

RUMOR CONTROL: Fashion Designer Toure of Toure Designs Responds to New York Fashion Week Incident with VH1’s Love And Hip Hop Star Tahiry Jose



Toure of Toure Designs can no longer remain silent and would like to clear up the rumors and speculations going around about the brutal attack against one of his celebrity models Tahiry Jose that occurred on Monday September 08, 2014 at the Helen Mills event space.


“I would like to take the time to clear my company’s name, as this was not a Toure Designs show. We were part of the Angola International Fashion Show event. The incident didn’t take place backstage, it happened in front of the venue. The Production Manager of the venue Carlos Gonzalez, seemed to already be against this event happening before the altercation took place. I would like to apologize to my fans and celebrity attendees that came to support me for this unfortunate incident. This was something that was totally not in my control. We at Toure Designs do not support or condone violence of any type let alone against women. We wish a speedy recovery to Tahiry. “
