WHM Book Club Local Authors Resource Coming

WHM Book Club Local Authors Resource Coming

Did you know that there are about 50 African American authors in the Memphis area alone? These are published authors who have at least one book on the market. That’s why I have decided to develop the Memphis Authors Directory presented by the What’s Happening Myron Book Club. In this database, each author will have their own profile page which lists their books, website, pictures, contact information and more. You will now be able to find out who is writing in the Mid-South area.



I will be populating this directory for the next few weeks. If you’re interested in participating, please email me at myeon@whatshappeningmyron.com.
Sweetie Pies: Los Angeles…Still No Memphis

Sweetie Pies: Los Angeles…Still No Memphis

(eurweb.com) If anyone knows a thing or two about gospel, it’s Miss Robbie of “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” on OWN.

She was in Las Vegas over the weekend looking beautiful with a fresh blonde Mohawk and a fabulous all black dress on the Stellar Awards red carpet! And by the way, Miss Robbie and son Tim shared some exciting news with EUR associate LaCora Stephens.

Last year during an interview with LaCora, they debated about the location of their next Sweetie Pie’s restaurant they were planning to open. Well, it looks like Tim won because they are opening what will soon be the hottest soul food spot on the West Coast.

And since you’ve already read the headline, you know it’s gonna be in SoCal … in Los Angles. But hat part of LA? Watch the video to find out and when the grand opening will take place!

Kevin Hart to Receive Comedic Genius Award at MTV Movie Awards

Kevin Hart to Receive Comedic Genius Award at MTV Movie Awards

Kevin Hart will be honored with the Comedic Genius Awards at the MTV Movie Awards next month, MTV announced on Monday, not-so-coincidentally just a few days after Get Hard premiered in theaters. Hart made the announcement in a less-than-bashful video in which he brags about being the “funniest man alive” to a third-grade nemesis who doesn’t seem to agree with MTV’s definition of “comedic genius.” The MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Amy Schumer, air April 12 at 8 p.m. ET.



Terrence Howard Blackmailed by Ex-Wife with Career-Ruining Photos

Terrence Howard Blackmailed by Ex-Wife with Career-Ruining Photos

Empire star Terrence Howard is attempting to cut off spousal support to his ex-wife Michelle after she allegedly blackmailed him, TMZ reports.
According to the report, Michelle is receiving a hefty payment deal - five years of spousal support for only a year-long marriage - from Howard because she threatened to leak photos and videos that the actor worried would ruin his career. 

One of the photos reportedly shows Terrence in the shower.  Terrence is allegedly planning to make a formal legal claim this month.
Common Pulled as Commencement Speaker after NJ Cops Complain

Common Pulled as Commencement Speaker after NJ Cops Complain

(Eurweb.dom) New Jersey’s Kean University has cancelled Common as its commencement speaker after police pointed out a track he recorded 15 years ago about a woman convicted of killing a cop.

State Police union president Chris Burgos called the choice a “slap in the face” because lyrics in Common’s 2000 recording “A Song for Assata” portrays Assata Shakur (born Joanne Chesimard) as a victim.

Chesimard, a former Black Panther and member of the Black Liberation Army, was convicted in 1977 of killing a New Jersey state trooper. She remains in Cuba after she escaped from prison.


The school announced the Oscar winner’s selection on Monday, but said Tuesday night that he was being pulled. University spokeswoman Susan Kayne told The Record newspaper that their Common announcement was made prematurely and the school is pursuing other speaker options.
