Actress Meagan Good Stars In Upcoming Movie ‘Video Girl’ [Exclusive Preview]

The beautiful Meagan Good will be releasing her upcoming film Video Girl this summer. Meagan who produced the film, will play a girl by the name of Laurie Walker, who has aspirations of being a Hollywood actress and dream of being in the limelight.  After meeting a man who says he will help her be famous, she becomes one of the most highly paid and most sought after video vixens in the game. Read Meagan’s interview with Vibe below:

VIBE: Right now, I think people want to know where are you with your film career.
Meagan Good: I just produced a film that should be out by the end of the year calledVideo Girl. It’s very much like Gia––the HBO film Angelina Jolie did for HBO. It’s not the Karrine Steffans story. It’s about a very unassuming girl from a small town who used to be a professional dancer until she gets a knee injury. So she’s in a place where she’s trying to figure out what she wants to do professionally. She gets hooked into the video-modeling world, develops a drug habit and really gets caught up in the limelight.

Now I’ve heard about Video Girl for some years now. Is this your brainchild or was it brought to you?
This project was brought to me about seven years ago. We’ve had it everywhere––with Queen Latifah’s company, Benny Medina’s, a lot of different people. What I think the script needed was for me to sit down, go through it and figure out which story I wanted to tell. I really wanted to bring hip-hop culture into it but I didn’t want it to be limited to just one audience, so [I had] to mix up the cast and make sure it was multi-racial. I think we did a good job. For what I wanted to come across which is kind of a cautionary tale for young women, letting them know it’s ok to go out there and be successful and make your money but you’ve gotta understand it’s not about the glitz and glamour. It’s about not selling yourself short and being true to yourself.

I never been to Brooklyn Bowl, but I have been hearing a lot of great things about it.  It seems like it’s becoming one of the newest hot spots in New York.

Foxy Brown Goes In On Tom Joyner, Plus She Denies Getting Kicked Off His Cruise

Earlier in the week, Tom Joyner announced that rapper Foxy Brown was kicked off his cruise last week. “We put Foxy off the cruise. Let’s just say she got put off. You had to really act a fool to get put off.” Tom did not get too much in-depth about why Foxy was kicked off his cruise, however he did comment on what happened when Foxy called his morning show. The phone conversation had a negative ending, after Foxy cut the call short. “You know Foxy, after the interview, she called back and she was crying. And I said, ‘See, she’s gonna be alright.’ Well, I was proven wrong.”

Tom and the rest of his morning show hosts said they sent Foxy to her cabin since the ship didn’t have a jail:  “Foxy was sent to her cabin” and “locked in[…]but that wasn’t enough.”

If you thought Foxy wasn’t going to reply, you were wrong. The Brooklyn’s Don Diva took to her Twitter account @FoxyDonDiva and released the statement below:

“SO I’m up packing my Luby’s and Kirkwoods to meet my pumpkin Shyne in Belize for a lil’ vacay…..and I get a call that Tom joyner is on the radio disrespecting me….again! OKAY NOW MR. JOYNER, your old enough to be my grandfather which is why I let your distasteful comments in our interview go without putting you in your place. Obviously, you equated my silence with weakness. My maturation with passivity. Grandpa you need to learn some respect, I’m the wrong one to romp wit you will get checked!!”

“Lying ass! It was absolutely nothing but LUV from my arrival to the day I left. Hugs from Monie Love and kisses from Dougie Fresh….I tore the stage down! That’s the thanks I get?? U wait til’ I leave the ship and then 2 days later your on the air saying negative shit!”
