The weather is starting to change from dry and cold to humid and warm. This transition can upset our daily skin routines. You may notice by now that your normal “Winter” moisturizer or primer isn’t working as well as it did back in January. The air has more moisture as spring arrives along with warm air. Your “warm weather” routine should depend on what your skin type is. For dry skin that remains dry throughout the day, I always recommend moisturizing no matter what or you will notice dry patches in your foundation. I recommend “Embryolisse Lait-Crème” for dry skin during Spring and Summer months, then “Benefit’s Pore-Fessional” as your primer. After setting foundation with a light translucent or mineralized powder, spray a quick mist of NYX’s setting spray in the dewy formula. For oily skin I would skip the moisturizering step in your routine and apply a matte primer such as Becca’s “Ever matte” primer in your t-zone area immediately after cleansing your face. Also for oily skin, stay away from cream foundations during this time of year, they may have worked great all Winter but may cause you to get oily much quicker now. If you’re trying to achieve the “dewy” look then set your liquid foundation with a mineralized powder and spray a setting spray such as Urban Decay’s “All-nighter Makeup Setting Spray”. Last but not least, for the ladies who have combination skin, I know things can be a bit confusing when it comes to what will work to keep you from getting oily throughout the day. If you feel dry immediately after cleansing your face but notice you’re oily in 20-30 minutes, or have oily skin with a few dry spots, you’re in the “Combination skin” category. Using two different primers is your answer, 1st, moisturize with an oil control moisturizer such as MAC’s “Oil Control Lotion”. Then prime with a matte primer with no spf in your t-zone only. For the rest of your face or your dry patches use the above mentioned primer by Benefit to ensure that makeup doesn’t slip or crack throughout the day in those areas. No matter your skin type, there is a solution for achieving a flawless makeup application that lasts throughout the day. Suggested products:
In the forty plus years since the rise and explosion of the Hip Hop culture which of course includes the music itself, there have been many great artists. Many of them were quite well known in the early days of Hip Hop with legions of fans. They had many well attended shows and songs that played on the underground and later mainstream radio stations of the time and many were in fact female artists. Well before today’s hit makers like Nikki Minaj or Iggy Azealia even before artists like Lil Kim, Salt n Pepa or Mc Lyte they were out there heavy and doing it for real. Unfortunately many of them are now relatively unknown and unsung. Today we have the pleasure of talking with legendary female MC, Sparky D. For people who may be not aware, you definitely have a lot of history in the business. In the music business and the hip hop culture. I’m somebody who’s definitely aware of you, and Spyder-D and that whole era. But why don’t you introduce yourself, and talk about it a bit? And then we’ll of course bring it up to date. Okay, that’s what’s up. I go by the name of MC Sparky D. Born and raised in Brownsville, Brooklyn. First battle rapper. Not first female rapper, but first battle rapper. I battled, Roxanne Shante. That was in 1985. When started out with a crew called, “The Play Girls.” And we had a song called, “The Battle.” I was Russell Simmons first female artist signed. It was Whoudini, Kurtis Blow, Run DMC, LL Cool J, Kool DJ Red Alert, and myself. Spyder-D, Davey D, Dr. Jeckyll & Mr. Hyde. The list goes on. And I was the first female ever with an endorsement for Mountain Dew and Gwen Guthrie. Gwen Guthrie passed away - but she sang that song, “Ain’t Nothing going on but the Rent.” And I did do what I had to do in the business. Well what was the introduction for you, and then what was the breakthrough that led to all of that, that led to the endorsement and that led to what ended up being your career? My introduction was with The Playgirls group. We was on Sutra Records. And the Fat Boys was on that label. And the name of that song was called, “Picture of a Man.” Three girls from Brownsville, we was young. We hung out with the best of the best. The names that I named. We wasn’t even signed yet. But when we got signed to Sutra - the record, ah - but they knew who we was. ‘Cause we was going around every boro and whatnot. And then before it became 1985, it was at midnight. It was New Year’s 1985, Mr Magic Rap Attack, for those who don’t know. Mr Magic Rap Attack really started hip hop in New York, on that radio station, him and Marley Marl, the Juice Crew. And he played Roxanne Shante’s record. I was laughing. “Ooh look at her little girl voice, she ain’t even rhyming. But her voice.” And just stood out. And he (Spyder D) said, “You’re going to answer that record.” So the next day, January 1st, the next day I went in the studio, answered that record. and a week later, it went gold, the rest is history. Wow. Now for those that don’t know, that whole era in hip hop - that Roxanne era was a crazy time, but it was fun. I mean because there was so many records that came out. You had all kind of response records. You had this Roxanne, you had Roxanne’s grandmother... it just turned into a whole thing, but it was definitely done in a lot of fun. And I think that’s definitely something that’s missing from hip hop now. That just kinda - that kind of fun back and forth. Because then it kinda turned a different direction that definitely wasn’t good for the people that it impacted personally. And then of course the culture, the culture as a whole. I definitely can relate to everything that you were talking about. I remember those days. And when people try to refer to you guys as old school, I’d rather say that you’re the true school of hip hop. Because that’s when everything was more authentic. Everything that came from behind that was more like something that they’ve seen. You guys were the originators that did that. So before that, you didn’t have nobody to say that - that’s who you looked up to. So they look up to you. That was the best time of my life. That’s what made me love hip hop until this very day. Doesn’t matter, even when you put me in a box, I’ll still be loving hip hop. I was just up in New York. Sunday I went to Cool V’s book signing, you know the Juice Crew. And there’s Big Daddy Kane, Roxanne Shante, Kool G
Rap, myself, Pebblee Poo. And it was funny, because - excuse me - we only had 1 mic. So yeah, yeah in this party, whole bunch of people - true hip hip hop. Like parties used to be back in the days. And we’re passing around 1 microphone, man. So yeah, I understand what you’re saying. That’s, It was done for love, it was done for love. True hip hop, you’ll never get that again. You’ll never get that again. They can’t even fake the funk. Even having shows today for true hip hop. So, again, we thank you for supporting us. Oh definitely. I usually ask the question,who is your top 5 dead or alive MC’s in the game? Man or woman, doesn’t matter. Roxanne Shante, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim , LL Cool J, and MC Shan. What would you - if you had to implement anything from yesteryear to present year, to give it a better balance. What would you think that would be? God has a plan for each and every one of us. So first of all, I’m not going to knock them. I thank God for them for keeping it going. But one thing I do not like is cursing - or explaining that you passed a Molly or you passed a Percocet, or you want to twerk and she pulled her pants down. She did it, he did it like this. She opened up her legs and he licked it like this. We’re teaching our children how to have sex, how to do drugs. There’s some portraying that they’ve sold drugs and they’re Police officers, you feel me? So our kids are trying to be like them, and they’re not even doing those things. So it’s hurting our community. I don’t like them for the same, the forces that they have - but that’s already set in the plan for them. But it is hurting hip hop. And what they’re doing is not hip hop, that’s called rap. ‘Cause hip hop is a culture. Just to get to talk to people that can relate to every feeling that I have myself, regardless of age. And sometimes you look and say, “Man, I wish I could go back and just reminisce a little more. But that’s the reason why we’ve got these old opportunities to go back and look at YouTube and listen to some of the great music, the things that you’ve done. People who never heard of you can Google you and really research and see the truth in hip hop that you did do what you did. And if it didn’t show up, then it wouldn’t be there. So I definitely salute you 105%. Thank you, thank you. We appreciate you. We appreciate you guys. Without you guys, I mean where would we be? So, again, we thank all of you guys - all of you. Even up and coming ones now, we thank you. What advise could you give for up and coming artists especially females? Just stay focused. The entertainment business is nothing to play with, you got to stay focused. Hold your own. Just because you are female, sometimes we’ll be let down, you know what I mean? Or pushed to the side, kicked to the curb. But just stay focused. You stay focused, and let the microphone be your skill. Let the microphone be your skill. Let that be number 1, you know what I mean. Yeah we’re beautiful ladies, do what we do. We love to get dressed and be fly. But let the mic carry you, let you have some skills on that microphone. And stick at your study, and stay focused and you’ll go a long way. Right, definitely. Because like a lot of the up and coming female rappers nowadays, they just let their beauty take them along. And they’re not really talking about anything. But I like old school hip hop, so I’m ready to hear the old school hip hop again, because like the music nowadays is not even music. I don’t even know what that is. Now you said, your first solo record was the response to Roxanne? Was that your first solo record? Yeah that’s the first solo record I have. That was produced by Spyder-D I would imagine. For sure, yes it was.
Okay now, and you met him because all of you guys were signed under Russell Simmons, correct? No, no actually The Playgirls - we were from Brooklyn, and our manager said, “Come on, we’re going to take you to the studio. And they said, “We’re going to let you meet Spyder-D.” Well I’m telling the two girls, Mo Ski and City Slim - I said, “Just because he’s Spyder-D and he made a record, don’t anybody going to be trying to like him,” and all that. You know how girls are. So I said, “Don’t be acting - just because he in a studio, he ain’t nothing. We’ve got it going on.” Put the music on - he put the music on, and we start rapping to him and Kurtis Blow begin to fight over us for a movie with Leon Isaac Kennedy. But Spyder-D won. We love Kurtis Blow, but I’m glad Spyder-D won. And then the rest was history - and the rest was history. Spyder loved us. He didn’t have to teach us how to rap. I mean we just had it together. We also have Sparky D’s DJ in the building. Do you also do production? No, I just spin. I mean I’m just a baby brother that she just put on and we just make it happen. We just do what we do. Even though I’ve been doing this for a minute. Okay, alright, that’s what it is. So how long have you actually been her DJ for shows and things like that? Well I think me and Sparky have been together about - what, about 5 months now Sparky? Yeah about 5 months. How long did you do this before me though? I’ve been on tour with Mike Epps, Katt Williams. I’ve done Bell Biv DeVoe, Charlie Wilson. I’ve done some more, Bruce Bruce. I did tours with all the big - Dougie Fresh, and I mean I opened up for Naughty By Nature. I’ve done like a whole lot of touring. I’ve been doing this since - like ‘89 from the Bronx. Zulu Nation, Chapter One. I’ve been doing it in the big park, plugged up to the lamp poles. With the big earthquake speakers. So me and Sparky hooked up through a mutual friend of ours, which is her God Sister, who’s my road manager and who’s Sparky’s manager. So that kind of put together. So now we just generate - start setting the game back down the way she used to. I heard mentioned a little bit earlier there’s some things that are coming back together. So is there anything that you could tell us right now as far as any performances coming up for you guys? Yeah, I’ve got a - we’ve got a New York June 3rd. The Woman of Hip Hop. We have that with MC Sha-Rock. You know, for the historical museum, we’re working Cuba Gooding Sr we met in Texas. We’re getting dates, we’re getting dates. The dates are coming. Hopefully we’ll get on this tour. Still trying to work out a Canadian tour. We getting ready to do a college tour, we’re just pushing it out, pushing it out. Once they know that I’m back and doing what I do, for sure, they’ll pick me up. So right now, we’ve got a couple of dates. Things are working out, we just did Vegas at the Gospel Jubilee. You have a new song out called “I’m Blessed”, can you talk about that a bit before you go? After I went through what I went through what I went through. Through drugs and different things in my life. I gave my life back to God. I was always with God, I gave my life back to God. I just keep it real, So 17 years of crack cocaine, prostitution, domestic violence and homelessness - I had to fall to my knees. I had to come back to the realization that God made me. My mother didn’t make me like this. So I just gave my life back to God, and he delivered me from everything that I said. And I do gospel hip hop. I’m an ordained Pastor as well. I’m in the schools on a daily basic, and just lifting up our community - and that’s just what I do. Some real talk and some real music. Sparky D its been a pleasure Thank you
the power of women
So, I know I usually give sex tips, but it’s Women’s Month, so I want to veer off topic (just a little). I want to talk about the power of women. We are powerful beyond measure. That power supersedes what’s between our legs and includes what’s between our ears. So often, we question out own worth in ways that can be detrimental to us personally, emotionally, and professionally. This month especially, I want to challenge any and all women reading this to tap into your power. I want us to stop apologizing for things we have no need to be sorry for. I want us to not be ashamed to ask for what we want in business, and what we deserve in relationships. I want us to see our fellow sisters and reach out a hand when we see them struggling. I know the challenges of moving about in the professional world and being called out of my name because I am assertive. I’m sure that many of you can relate to the same thing. I have had male friends compare me to their “homeboy” because I am logical and I don’t make decisions because off emotions. I have had men call me a slut because I am vocal about what I like in bed. I have had other women look at me with disdain because “I think I’m better than everyone else.” Coming to terms with how the world has perceived me was not an easy journey. I found myself apologizing for just being myself. I felt that if I prefaced my requests with “I’m sorry...” I wouldn’t be perceived as too masculine or too assertive. After evaluating why I even cared what other people thought of me while achieving my dreams, I realized that I could not be the person that others wanted me to be. I decided at that moment, I would inspire other women to tap into their power and reach for the stars regardless of what label the world wants to put on you. Yes, it’s Women’s Month and we are complex creatures who need not let anyone tell us that we don’t deserve everything that we work so hard for. I’ve always been told that what other people think of me is none of my business anyway. As we celebrate Women’s Month, I want us to celebrate each other. If you don’t do it already, I challenge you to tap into your power. Speak up in your workplace. Ask the questions you need answers to in your relationships. Tell your partner what you expect from him and what you are willing to give in return. Don’t allow yourself to be belittled. Don’t look down on other women who may not be where you are professionally, romantically, financially, or otherwise. If you can commit to this challenge for an entire month, it will definitely become a habit and it will be easy to continue it further into the year. Happy Women’s Month, ladies! I see you!
Where I n T h e
World Is She Now
By Belinda Trotter-James
When we last spoke to Luenell she was so busy with movie roles and other projects that I wondered what she is doing now and if she ever gets a chance to take a break to relax and enjoy a few days on the beach or travel around the world. Well, the answer is… Nope! She did not take a break. “The thing about this business that I’m in is very ‘out of site… out of mind’,” says Luenell. “You can take a break, but it’s like you have to start all over again.” Ordinary folk take a bus, train or drive to work. Luenell is in such high demand that she has to take a plane or a ship to work. Let me explain… When we caught up with her on Tuesday, Thursday night she had to fly on the red eye to get to New Orleans for a quick show and then she had to fly to Miami to do her first Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage cruise. “I was only gone for a week and was paranoid about that,” says Luenell. “Being gone for a week makes you wonder ‘what am I missing and what’s missing me?’ Thankfully I have a team that always holds it down for me while I’m gone until I get back. I don’t take very many breaks.” Actually in Luenell’s type of work it doesn’t feel like work at all. Wouldn’t you love for your job to pay you to be on a cruise?! She was the captured bad girl of comedy on the high seas for one week surrounded by fans and water. Not everyone that goes on a cruise can swim. Not that you need that skill, but we just had to ask if the bad girl of comedy can swim? “This will be my fourth or fifth cruise,” says Luenell. “I can swim, but swimming in a pool and swimming in subzero ocean water is something else. I am pretty much covered by the Blood and I didn’t believe that anything would happen on our trip. Of course nobody does, but I’m pretty anointed and prayed up so I had anticipated nothing but great things on this trip and I did not go in with no other thoughts. I am very happy that I took my older sister with me; we look very much alike. I have three sisters and four brothers. The cruise to Jamaica was on her bucket list and I didn’t even know she had a bucket list. I thought it would be a great pleasure to be able to bond with her and being the little sister and be able to take my big sister on this trip with me.” If you watch the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Luenell made a cameo appearance to meet with Claudia. If you didn’t know, Claudia is real life friends with Luenell. “Claudia and I met on The Foxxhole radio program several years ago and she was very nice, witty and down to earth for someone you may stereotype as being typically beautiful and who you would think wouldn’t be so open and fun, but she is absolutely that and she has friends of all sorts,” says Luenell. “She is very quick on her feet and I respect that. So we became friends then and have remained friends till this day.” Luenell’s long list of star studded friends is endless as they took time out of their schedules to attend one of two special birthday parties in her honor.
“The first was in Southern California in Los Angeles and second one was in Northern California that wasn’t so star studded, but more friend studded because I was raised in the Bay area so I got to see tons of people who I had came up with, went to school with, had as roommates and that was my party in Oakland at a club where they did a roast,” recalls Luenell. “They roasted me and it was fun.” The party Luenell had in Los Angeles is on You Tube. You can actually see a clip of the group Troop performing for Luenell. Just type in ‘Luenell’s Birthday Video’ and you will see a four minute clip of the party and what made it so special. “It was special because it was like a dream come true party,” remembers Luenell. “I had Faith Evans, Kelly Price, 2nd II None, Troop… they all performed for me. The Mary Jane Girls were in the house, Tony Toni Tone, Kimble Hooker and several other Bay area artists performed. So when Kelly asked me, ‘What do you want me to sing?’ I said sing the song It’s My Time from the video you made that I’m in. The fact that I had Kelly Price not only sing to me, but she sang a song from a video that we’re in together called Its My Time made it special. And its kind of prophetic because It’s My Time is how I’m feeling about my career and things that are going well for me right now plus you know Kelly is anointed as well and she is a prophet no matter what the bullsh*t you saw on that other show she was on which really did not depict who she really is. She sang and prayed for me and had the whole party in a giant prayer for me which is why I know, and not just because of that day, but I know I am covered in the Blood and that its all going to be okay so you don’t get much of that. You have friends that will eat with you, drink with you, smoke with you, but not a lot of friends will pray with you and Kelly is definitely a prayer and I definitely appreciated that we had the whole party go to church for just a few minutes.” The icing on the party was Luenell’s pink hair done by a well known celebrity hairstylist. Who knew she would arrive with a beautiful head of girly pink hair. “It was Elgin Charles”, revealed Luenell. “I went to his shop and got it done. For about 5-6 days I was pink and it was great. I shocked the paparazzi. Nobody expected me to show up with pink hair, but I am known for doing the unexpected.” The Females in Comedy Association’s Annual Comics Rock Convention takes place every year in Los Angeles headed up by Hope Flood and Luenell is a part of the action every year. “Hope is a good friend of mine and she has been doing this for years,” says Luenell. “Back in the day she used to have a magazine for comedians and for some crazy reason she has always had an interest in helping comics. We did not have any guidelines or anyone to talk with about the business. Jamie Foxx used to have something called Lopaloza in Atlanta and all the comics would go for the seminars. So it’s something like that. It used to be called the Females in Comedy Convention and then the men started wining that they wanted to get some of the knowledge too. So not to be one to turn down any money, Hope opened it up to all comics. She wanted to promote togetherness not separatism. You can get more information at comicsrockconvention.com. We have seminars, speakers, fashion shows, dinners and knowledge about stage presence, using your social media, writing new material, presenting your material, improv, relationships while you’re in the business, dos and don’ts and keynote speakers. When Mr. Dick Gregory he spoke on any and everything to do with all the above subjects. It’s usually just a really great time for people to come from different parts of the country to get up on different stages in Los Angeles and get a little taste of the life and learn a lot.” Luenell also performs at the convention and those who were lucky enough to attend the show got a chance to get one of her exclusive tee shirts that are only sold at her performances. She also breaks out her DVD’s, CD’s and autographed headshots. “I’m the first person they meet when they come to town. I’m like the official greeter for all the comics and I break down what they will be experiencing throughout the convention and then we perform later at the convention on certain nights,” explains Luenell.
do it just like the Kings [of Comedy] who do it and will continue to do. I do put a variation on every show I do because some people do come to a show where I perform twice in one night; so I am mindful of that and even if I talk about the same things, I will put a different twist on it and throw in a couple of different jokes I didn’t do on the first show.” It seems as though people are getting so sensitive these days to the point that comedians don’t want to work on new material at the smaller clubs in fear that the audience will take things out of content and cause drama on the social media networks. Comedian Chris Rock feels he does not want to try out new material at the smaller venues because people will twist the joke into something ugly. “I try to stay away from politics and religion,” begins Luenell. “The only thing I might say about religion is when my grandma use to listen to the AM Baptist church radio broadcast that was so loud and distorted that you couldn’t hear what they were saying. Or if President Obama came in town and stopped up traffic that day, I may say something about that. I don’t want to talk about politics because I don’t want to alienate anyone in the audience because I have such a diverse demographic of people. In my shows there are never just all black people. I have white people, Latinos, Latinas I have all different demographics coming to see me so I don’t want to leave anybody out. There are some people who are very good at that. D.L. [Hughley] is very good at that and so is Chris. I’m just very much grassroots... sex, kids, relationships, weight, getting older and basically stuff like that is where I keep it.” It’s so funny that you can start off in life going in one direction and in a blink of an eye, the road becomes completely different. Not in a million years would you think that a comedy career would open so many doors. Luenell’s voice is now cemented in the animation field. “I always wanted to do voiceovers and I have been blessed with that type of work recently,” says Luenell. “I did Adam Sandler’s animated film, Hotel Transylvania and Hotel Transylvania 2 and I’m the voice of the
Shrunken Head in that movie and I was very happy and pleased to do that. I do theatre and I also did some work on The Boondocks and another show called ADHD and some other stuff. I am very happy to do voiceover work. I’ve always wanted to do it.” Life seems to be throwing Luenell juicy nuggets of surprises to the point where she may say to herself, ‘Wow! They want me to do that?! Luenell laughs a little and responds, “Yeah, I had to play a stripper in another Adam Sandlers film called, That’s My Boy,” explains Luenell. “I had prosthetic boobs, skimpy outfits and I had to actually take a stripping class for several weeks before filming. I would not have thought that they would want me to do that, but it was all in the vain of comedy so it worked out very well and I’m actually proud of that movie. I did one movie years ago that was not comedic at all. It was about murder, drugs and I’m the only one that didn’t get killed. The movie was called, Never Die Alone with DMX. It was an actual Donald Goines book that they made into a film. I played the bartender and it was a dramatic role that was not comedic at all.” Fans cannot get enough of Luenell and would love to see her on television in a sitcom. She is constantly on the road trying to get to as many fans as possible. Would she leave the road to sit still for awhile to do television? “I would absolutely do that,” says Luenell. “I’m trying to get a show so that I don’t have to travel so much. I don’t mind the traveling, but it’s the packing and unpacking that bothers me. I don’t mind traveling, taking a plane, going to other places or being in hotels at all, but I do mind packing and unpacking. That is the vain of my existence right now. Packing for the cruise gave me great anxiety because you need several outfits…. daywear, swimwear, where do I put my dirty clothes… I’ll never stop touring or going on the road because I do like the interacting with people; but if I could get a show where I could do Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday then do the road Friday and Saturday then take my Sundays off, that’s what I would ultimately like to do, yes!”
Luenell is so good at what she does that fans will never be bored and her fanatic fans will not have to worry about seeing the same exact show twice. “I have never in my entire life been able to do two shows exactly the same in my whole career,” say Luenell. “Even if I talk on the same subjects, I put a different spin on every show that I do just because I’m not what they call a scripted comic where I do everything the same all the time. When you work the road, you do develop a routine that you do and you pretty much follow that same pattern everywhere you go because everybody hasn’t seen it. Just because you did it in Georgia, Chicago and New York doesn’t mean the people in Philly, Kansas and Wyoming have seen it; so you get a road set and go out and Actually Luenell’s personality would fit in perfectly on Fox’s hit television show, Empire. Fans have been thinking about who she should be related to on the show. She could be Cookie’s aunt or the sister of the two friends of Lucious Lyon that were killed. She can be the one to keep the investigation going as to how they were killed. “Actually there was a Twitter campaign for a while,” reveals Luenell. “My tweets came up with two story lines. They wanted to tweet Lee Daniels and say that I should come on the show as one of Cookie’s ex-cellmates. We had made some deals in jail and now that we are both out, I was coming to collect and the other one is where I would play Lucious sister or aunt who had been drug addicted for years and used to take care of the kids, but when he got put on, he kicked me to the curb and got nannies so now I’m coming back to take my revenge and get some compensation for all the years I did to take care of the kids.” Sounds good and fans definitely think Mr. Daniels should take advantage of Luenell’s talent and popularity. If you are not familiar with seeing Luenell on television, just watch her appearance on BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood. She plays the comedic friend of Kevin. “My scene is with Earthquake and we are just hanging out talking a little Sh*t together and that’s all I can say for right now,” reveals Luenell.
Luenell co-stars in the original comedy film “Definitely Divorcing,” Her co-stars include Robin Givens, Columbus Short, Golden Brooks, Gary Owen, Lisa Wu and Malika Haqq. The film was directed by syndicated radio personality Russ Parr. She has begun her 2016 comedy tour, entitled “Luenell Live & Easily Annoyed.” This will also be the title of her upcoming CD. Luenell has taped some appearances on Bravo’s popular “Shahs of Sunset,” which will air during their upcoming new season, currently developing her own tv show, co-stars in a hilarious movie called “What Are The Chances,” and Luenell’s film “LAPD African Cops,” for which she won a Best Actress award in Nigeria, is coming to America.
