"regina king" Discussed on What's the 311
"Welcome to celebrity news. Everyone. Welcome to the Sonya podcast. Well, I know all heard about Regina King, her son committing suicide. And if y'all, who doesn't know who Virginia can get, she's an African American actress. So her son Ian he committed suicide. So vivica had wrote that she was with her friend and you know she had gone seeing her friend after the suicide and she never thought that in the African American community that there would be such thing as suicide. I'm here to see him now in these days. An age, I think suicide is in every community, whether it's the Latin community, African American community, the Caucasian Asian community, Indian community. I think it's an old communities. And it's really sad that, you know, someone would take their own life. You know, they have to really be going through something to take their own life. And it said that you look at certain people and take care for instance. I know a lot of people probably was looking like, oh, his mom is rich. He's rich because I think he's an artist. He was an artist. And why would he want to take his life? But a lot of times people suffer from mental illness really bad. And they need help and they need to tell someone and they need to talk to someone and a lot of times, you know, I recently was telling my son that a lot of times you don't want to talk to your family or your Friends, even though you can tell them certain things you can't tell them some things. So it's best if you have issues that you actually go see a psychiatrist or a therapist to get the help that you need, you know, 'cause we all, you know, we all go through Thompson our life. We're you feel like, you know, it's just too much. And I was reading where he was saying that Instagram was like an enemy of his and the thing with Instagram to me, I don't know about anyone else but to me. When I look at Instagram, I feel you should follow or pertains to you. Like if you're into something you need to follow some follow some of that's going to motivate you and inspire you, you know, don't look at what everyone else is doing or whatever everyone else is had because people will show you the good but no one would show you the bad. And in his case, you know, I'm trying to wrap around like, what was it so much about Instagram that caused you to fill a certain way because you have luxury, you know, you're not lacking anything. So was someone actually being mean to him on Instagram or was someone, you know, actually bullying him on Instagram. But you have to follow words pertaining to you. Not what everyone else having. I mean, it can be very useful can grow your business. It can be very useful Instagram could be used so you just have to know how to use it. So but that was my opinion on celebrity news. Let me know what y'all think. And there is help for suicide that you can get help, even if you have to call three one one because right now I don't even have the number for the one 800 number for suicide. I don't really know it right now, but you could call three one one and always ask them, you know, what's the number for suicide? Suicide prevention, and like I said, try to get to talk to a therapist or a psychiatrist, you know, and try to have great people in your life that's going to be very supportive. Even though you can't tell them everything, the ones that you could tell a little like, you know, maybe I'm having a bad day and they really there for you have someone in your life like that. And if you feel overwhelmed, stop, take time for yourself. And you know, just try to do the best you can. And I like you for thank you for listening to my podcast.

AJ Benza: Fame is a Bitch
Why Are Children of Celebrities Killing Themselves?
"People have asked me multiple times about all these suicides of children of stars. Sinéad O'Connor, Michael Manson, Regina King, all lost sons, king son, killed himself on his birthday. Dog tree lost a daughter. The American Idol guy. Hung herself with a bunch of drugs in his system. Crystal meth fentanyl. I hate to say it, but I don't think O'Connor's gonna make it long without her boy. This is gonna really put her over the edge. It already has and I don't think anybody would be surprised if she killed herself too. God forbid, but she's been screaming about mental illness forever. And I'm sure that played a role in her son's death. I'm sure it passed on from her to him. But how do you go on as a parent after that?

"And it was Andre. Time. It was Andre Leon telly that was like, you are crazy. This is the best thing I've ever seen. And I was like, thank you. Thank you, Andre. Tyra's out of her black ass. Oh my girl. First of all, as many times we have been accosted with your big 5 head all over everywhere. Okay, don't nobody. Don't do it. And you're fucking smize and how you make everything about you. That's why everybody cheers and who rise every time you get shot and higher learning because. Forgot all about that. Oh my gosh. I love you so I'll just play. I'm just playing for you. In that moment, I was very ashamed of Tyra Banks with very grateful for Andre. And I just love that he said that he said salon. So I have to find ways to incorporate the salon into my set on. Oh, darling, that's the kind of picture that you don't hang your baby. You know what? Absolutely. When I'm done with school and I get to start getting my nails done again, I'm gonna be like, oh, I'm gonna straight to the salon to get my nails done. I'm just gonna start calling my bedroom the salon. Straight into the salon, please. The salon. Oh, my makeup room will be my salon. This is my fellow. Your salon. This is where I do my makeup in my salon. I need to find that motherfucking picture on the Internet. I do. And put it in. And I will just put it up on the wall in my salon. We got to have a salon. Salon. Welcome to my talent darling. Please come in. Rest in peace and peace, honey. You will be gone. You will never be forgotten. Your memory will live on with us for many, many, many, many months to come. Also, we would be absolutely remiss and not sending our personal condolences to Regina King. Oh, that was next. Her family in the loss of her only son for only son. And it is just very, very sad. But the truth is that, you know, so you don't really know what people are going through people are out here hurting and so it's a good lesson for me to be mindful of how you engage people you don't know what people are dealing with what they're going through, but it's just such a heavy time. I feel like this is recently. I've been feeling lots of grief in the air. Yeah. The heaviness. Yeah. And so just absolutely holding and holding everybody in our thoughts and prayers and just do what you need to do to take care of yourself. Even getting lots of questions on my social media folks sort of like feeling this. And I will say that it's bad and sometimes it's just heavy, but like we were saying earlier, sometimes it's just a matter of sort of sitting in it not trying to rush through it. Not trying to rush through it and just acknowledging. We talked a little bit about this on the Patreon and our pre show, but just kind of acknowledging that you're not feeling okay right now. And sometimes it's just about that and not trying to proceed any further and do anything with that just acknowledging that that's how you feel. Yeah. So we know that a lot of people are battling right now. So we absolutely want to send love to Regina King, but we want to send a rest in peace to Ian Alexander junior because it's such a such a sad loss. Very much and also, theory mugler. Oh, yes. Today. Yeah. He was the same age as a Andre, we on tally. 73. So a lot of people are transitioning on and it's just such a, it's an interesting time. It's just an interesting time, but we do want to send love to all of those loved ones and our condolences to all of those loved ones who are dealing with grief right now. For show. In very bizarre news. Did you see that quote unquote pastor in his wife in Georgia? I saw the headline, but really was just like, I'm not going to do this. I literally saw it and was just like, I don't even know that I have the capacity to read this any further. And I'm just going to let these niggas set up a bump where it is. I'm going to they set up they so they ate differently abled, mentally and physically people were found in this home with the I think the basement door like padlock or something like that where they couldn't really get out very easily and they'd had these people up in this house. And they've been charged and they had their house of a church. Yeah, it was a house they were leasing. And they were they were doing everything under the guise of a church. But they held all these people. They were responsible. So they had all these people they were in charge of all their finances, so they had all the money that was coming in for these people. They were in charge of giving them their medications in which they were not doing. Oh dear. With a lot of them and holding them in a basement. It's very sad and you know what I will say this is a lot of information, but I will say this that y'all, I don't know. I just feel like people who lie on the lord are going to have to deal with a certain kind of consequence. And I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I feel like if y'all not scared your oddity. You ought to be afraid of all of these things. And I'm not just talking everyone. I'm talking about the white nationalists. I'm talking about all the people who are be out here doing evil and doing it under the guise of I don't even church religion. Not even just Christianity, but any sort of spiritual. I just don't understand. There's certain things that I was just raised that you don't play around with. Yeah. Also, I was raised like you don't kidnap people. And so so yes. You know? Absolutely. And I don't feel like me. I was not yes. Don't think for a moment that I was excusing any of this foolishness. But I don't know. I was just trying to do this show with you. Yeah, but I was just saying, like, wow. I was more, I guess I'm taking it back. Someone would do something like this, and then under the name of a church, is really just like, wow. Wow, wow, wow wow, wow. This is extra level of, oh my God, you're never going to see it. It's like you. I don't play around. I don't play these kinds of games. I just don't understand the evil that some people have in their hearts where to the point where they can why would you, hey, why would you kidnap anybody? Why would you kidnap people who can't speak for themselves do for themselves, take their medication? Wait, what? Like, what kind of evil resides down to your fucking child? I don't want to know. I don't want to understand. I feel like I don't want to be like that we don't understand it because no, not built these ways. And all we can do, I will say that, you know, if I'm glad that these sort of evil things are coming to light and I'm hopeful that the victims can find safe places and safe people to sort of start peeling from this very dramatic experience. Absolutely. Absolutely. Absolutely. That's all. Lastly, my last my last bit of cherish. I don't know if you had anything you wanted to add is, oh, the trash is not very pleasant today. So the Florida Florida House committee, oh, goodness. Is passing the don't say.

I didn't have to leave my house. You know when you think about for in hollywood we might have three or four meetings in a day. Those are like. I have to figure out the directions. I have to navigate the parking garage. I have to figure out if i'm going to interact with people in the elevator. Or what if i get lost. Who am i going to ask for help. All of those things. My brain just spins out and at each stop. It's oh god. I got to start over. What if they asked me this okay. This is probably what i'm going to say like. I literally go through questions that someone might ask. They never asked. And then follow up questions. And so i feel like i'm mike constantly prepared with pat answer. I rehearse ordering a pizza from domino's like what if they asked me something about the grass so for me like i deal with it by being overly prepared going places early not leaving anything to last second and just repeating myself. You're okay. they're probably nervous too. It's okay it's okay. You can be weird today. If that's how you're feeling you can be who you are and it's going to be okay. It's gonna be okay. Hi hi okay. Where are you from o. k. And that's usually how i start every cold call if you will every room because it's like the whole of my career our interactions that are not like my personal choosing like i choose my friends. I choose which family members. I allow into my home into my circle. But when you're out in the world and you have to constantly be meeting different. People are having interactions that you didn't exactly ask for north control. it's a whole nother animal. So i just try to give myself grace and time. So i don't add being late to the anxiety of already nerve racking experiences. And i just you're okay. You're okay you're okay on that note of not making you late last question.

"Let's focus specifically on the first movie because at least there were moments that we enjoyed in the first one And then maybe in the second can just talk about regina king for the rest of the epicenter The first film. I really enjoyed. I really enjoyed the soundtrack the soundtrack made me feel like anything was possible. And i didn't have a care in the world. But that's not how i was brought up but listening to the music i was like yes. Let me struck down the street and trying go and make some change. It was a bubble gum movie. It had a bubble gum soundtrack. And i was absolutely fine with it because i knew that's the sort of film that we were getting into and i think in in the sort of dynamics that they will hoping to lay out in the film it did work albeit very stretched So the fact that they tried to extend that to another film obviously as we said Didn't work at all But yeah the soundtrack really helps build that light fluffy world where you can really achieve anything and no one's gonna stand in your way because once you set your mind to it everything's possible oh absolutely and actually while we're getting to that One of the key sort of turnaround. Mermaids that we have in legally blonde is when she's going to look for a dress and they're in a boutique stole and the sales assistant says something to the effect of. There's nothing i love more than a dumb blonde with daddy's plastic and that's where we're like blood twist she's smart. Yup yup you could. You could see being set up at the whole premise. It's the script who she's actually small. Yeah ooh fall. So that's fine if that's as deep as we delve into this then that's absolutely fine and that's what the movie was offering and i i was i was i was expecting that. That's probably the biggest crescendo. that we would have gotten in the film so that's fine. You know i'll. I'll wake myself over something else. It obviously weren't being this movie. But i was okay with way we were being taken. Yeah we see hall exhibit smartness movie high intelligence shows. I think one of the strengths are being the mind..

NYT Reporter Kyle Buchanan Discusses the Lack of Diversity in the Golden Globes
"About the Golden Globe Awards. So, he said, it's just 87 members of the Hollywood Foreign Press. Paris Press, not a single black member. When you look at the nominees, it's Golden Globes so white It's 2021. Why Is this persisting within the Hollywood foreign press? You know? Well, the Hollywood Foreign press is an extremely insular bunch. You know, the reporting in the L A Times and in the New York Times this past week has a zoo revealed that several foreign journalists you know, over the years have tried to enter this group. And have been pushed out. In fact, it almost seems like the more legitimate the journalists. The worst. Your chances are of getting to this organization, perhaps because they were You know, worried about this kind of expo? Say, um wide. Are they still making while choices Because they are a wild bunch. You know, I've met Nick Those voters. They're eccentric to put it mildly, and they really thrive. On this kind of, you know, glamour and this this feeling that they are a pivotal step on the way to Oscar and they're not willing to give up any of that influence. In fact, they try toe. You know, only expanded, but they do so in such a weird way because they are secretive. In a way, you know, there's there's not They're not. They're not out there while they are out there, you know, rubbing shoulders shaking hands took himself fees. Um, if you want to define the list of their membership, that's when the H F P A really starts to clam up because they're not representing the best and brightest of global entertainment journalism far from it there, representing Maybe the savviest and canniest people in awards season that's more their speed than been trying Tost ablest any sort of legitimate credentials. The people who make up that group. So in terms of them being homogeneous, it sounds like they don't really might not particularly care. Well, yeah, I mean, they are homogeneous in the sense that there are no black voters, which is a kind of insane thing in the year. 2021. Obviously we know that Academy, which votes on the Oscars, has been taking sweeping steps over the last few years diversify its membership, which was primarily older, white and male. Gloves have not taken any such steps. And while they are somewhat divers to be Primarily rewarding American movies. To the extent that even a film like denarii, which is American, is shunted off to the foreign film category simply because it's characters often speak Korean That is indicating that ah, wide gulf between what you're covering and what you are what you look like what you're made of who makes up this group. And I think you know if they're going to purport to speak about this industry and who deserves reward with any sort of authority, and you know it's questionable sometimes whether they do or don't have it. And they have to absolutely take a look at themselves. I guess it kind of Buchanan. We're talking to him. He's the award season columnist for The New York Times. The Golden Globes are this Sunday. So here's a bright spot. Best director for motion picture category. There are more women than men nominated several fennel for promising young woman, Regina King for one night in Miami and Chloe Jiao for Nomad Land. Do you think this is the year we could see a best director Everett at the Globes of the Oscars. I do think so. You know, I'm sure the eight FDA would much rather we focus on that category than any other And certainly, you know, I mean, such as the story of award shows and often is the story of, you know, America generally that you have progress in one respect and then two steps backward somewhere else. But, yes, it was only a couple years ago that Natalie Portman was introducing the best director category is the Golden Globes. And very pointedly said Here are the five all male nominees this year that can't be said. In fact, there's a majority of women and I do expect that Chloe job for Nomad Land will prevail even if no man land doesn't take best drama, although it has a very good shot at that. Globes and not going to miss their opportunity to reward a woman. A person of color. She will be the first woman to win the best director trophy from them since Barbara Streisand for gentle Wow.

Empty seats and no red carpet: the Emmys in the age of coronavirus
"Jason. How did the Emmys go last night? Can we get rid of red carpets forever? And that's what I'm fine with that I didn't miss it from the show and as somebody who covers these things. They're annoying there in order to cover, especially the Emmys. The Emmys idiots usually like 95 degrees and just hot and terrible, And it's just about everybody saying the same thing over and over and over again. I'm fine without having that so under the winners, though s Creek from pop TV wins big and it was. This is an amazing story because In the first The show's been on for six seasons in the first five seasons of the show zero Emmys last night at 17 Emmys it with all the categories every single Emmys comedy category. Hit one, which is just to go from zero to everything that's never happened before. It's UN president, President Idan Emmys history and a lot of people are going to be sitting around trying to figure out why the show and it was it better in its sixth season than it was in all five seasons was that the competition was that we were all watching because of the pandemic. I mean, there's so many possibilities. It's a good show. I mean, I remember when it first came out getting on that on that train. It's a very good show, and it was fun to see. I saw some of the excerpts of the acceptance speeches. I mean, they've obviously worked so hard on it. Yeah, and they were. They were all together. That was nice to see a cz. Well, they threw their own party. They were in Canada and they threw their own party, Teo and they were ableto every all have the whole cast and crew there together, So it felt Mohr liken Emmys, then say going too. Regina King's home or Zendaya's home or something like that. It had a kind of a different feel to it. But when we did go to the winners homes that was interesting as well. Although I was rooting for chaos. I wanted things to go crazy because I thought that would have been good TV and things were kind of normal. So, Jason, you know, I hear you when you say that, you know, you have to cover the red carpet and you get a little frustrated with the whole thing. I mean, if I hear where you're wearing one more time, it's got you But I have to tell you this in my home. My wife and kids love to see. Okay. What are they wearing? And they love it. The pageantry I know people do in the most clicked on stories. Usually the next day have to do with the dresses and you know who wore it Best and things like that, And I I get that, but it also without having it and without having the I mean, they're still were a few shows. He did a show. A couple of local stations here in Los Angeles did shows as well. But without the whole thing. I mean, it's something I think. That wasn't necessarily missed. It costs a lot of money. It takes a lot of time. It takes a lot of people on DH. I think coming out of the pandemic, we're all going to look at what you know what we can streamline what we did streamline over the past few months and what we can keep that way going forward. I don't know. Maybe the red carpets one of those casualties It does truly take a village to look like that, Jason Agency way love your purest progress. Thank you so much Like the honesty very

Here are the 2020 Emmy Awards highlights
"So much nowadays traditional Glam, gathering of the EMMYS was shrunk down to a virtual version. This year, the winners had to dial in from their sofas but did to scale down show remove any of the fun while I'm joined by the phone critic Karen Cranach from welcome back Karen. Now, Jimmy Kimmel called this the pandemic. What was it like? You. Don't I was reading about the run up because of course, they had five days of the creative emmys, which was very interesting which covered documentarian sports things like that. We don't really get to see those its role waiting for the television ones television on comedy and they're all saying, oh, it's can be terrible to glitches and there were absolutely no. Glitches at all the writing was sensitive national it probably would have worked alive, and in fact, what they were doing is they were cutting back into the audience of previous years. So at first we thought Kimmel was presented to reluctance of couldn't be, and then of course, we see that it's an empty staple center with cardboard cutouts except one person Jason Bateman. It worked really really well, and as you said, he called the Pan Denny's. You can't have virus without a host modest M.. It. Last year it was host free. So he's making a double point there isn't he? Will he is I mean there is a discussion for all the wards shows that you know do we really need a host to carry through to give a a link King presents between all of the awards and sometimes you need that sometimes you don't, but he's very, very good in this effect was. Nominated himself didn't win but for for this year. So he solid reacted really well, and particularly with Jennifer Aniston was was there in I'm assuming was a prerecorded, extra it live. Where he's burning one of the emmy envelopes to sanitize it, and if the fire gets out of control, she actually does put put. The. Fire. Out on stage. Tell US little bit more than about. Who won who lost how things went? Arguably, this was possibly our final reminder. Some was that it was a blissful reminder of our recent past, but people could still make television in the same room. I think we're we're all I. Think we're we're going to get nostalgic about these virtual awards shows really because they could do so much more with with a with a regular live show somebody sends in a prerecorded or televisual link you feel cheated. Now you feel that you've got more possibility because the people can actually record something or talk to you live. So it Kinda works really well, for example, before I go to the awards there was almost apprentice reunion lease a Jennifer Aniston Courtney Cox and Lisa kudrow showed up altogether and Jimmy Kimmel's going what are you doing together and he goes she goes well, we've Jennifer says. We've been living together since nineteen ninety four. It was just a lovely surprised wouldn't have been able to happen in real life. So it was great now. watchmen with the big re reimagined science fiction. Series was for twenty six nominations at one eleven including UN series. Star. Regina. King and also best limited series which is amazing and that helped push the HBO show to Thirty Wins in total, which is very important and also Shits Creek, of course, we have to put little tm on there because it's spelled S. C. H. W. T. s. did a sweep a to record for comedy shows of nine wins and it was yeah it's it's incredible. It's last is the final. Season for that show and it was wonderful to see all of our beloved. Canadian actors. That was a hugely hugely popular series it turned up on flicks. But it didn't start with nets, which is weird. Yes it has found that second life. Elsa Bell Rutland. Well, it was really pop TV and it just it got a cult following because. I mean, these I've been watching Catherine O'Hara Levy since the seventies I mean they were at second city which the rivals Saturday night live we've seen them in American pie everywhere. These are very, very good season actors and writers and the fact that they show up with this unique show on pop TV it just goes to show you that if something's good against audience people will see
