Before no one underestimated Angela Bassett, she had to tell not to underestimate her on Ryan’s Hope. How beautiful was the 28-year-old actress in that 1987 episode?


Angela Bassett couldn’t hide her disappointment for losing an Oscar
March 12th, 2023 under Angela Bassett, Jamie Lee Curtis, Oscars. [ Comments: none ]

Angela Bassett and Jamie Lee Curtis were both up for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars tonight, but only one of them could take home the Oscar statuette. And that woman was the Everything, Everywhere All at Once actress.

As with every awards show, all the nominees are shown in little boxes as they wait to hear if their names will be called. The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever actress looked nervous as she waited to hear the winner’s name. But then, when she lost, her face looked to show disappointment and not the fake happiness that the other losers showed.

I get that she is upset because no one wants to lose. But it was a tough year, and Curtis also put on one helluva performance. As did Bassett. And there is always Black Panther 3.


Angela Bassett has the best reaction to seeing her wax-self!
September 17th, 2021 under Angela Bassett, Madame Tussauds. [ Comments: none ]

Angela Bassett is such an ageless icon that Madame Tussauds Hollywood decided to make her timeless. That is why she is the latest wax figure to join their museum.

Before the 9-1-1 star’s life-size candle made its debut, she was given some alone time with herself. What did she think? As soon as she saw it, she exclaimed, “Oh Lord, I am a twin.”

Then she got an up-close look at the front and the back. She particularly loved her “cute” derrière. So much so, she had to give it a squeeze. I have seen many people do different things to their wax statues, but I have never seen that. That is why she is such a legend and deserves to be there with all the other ones.


There’s a good reason Angela Bassett does not do her driving stunts
December 2nd, 2019 under Angela Bassett, The Real. [ Comments: none ]

Angela Bassett is in fantastic physical shape. Therefore, you would think that she does her own stunts. The actress does some of them, but she does not do the ones that include driving.

She told The Real hosts why she opts not to do them. It all started when she took her first road test and failed for backing up too fast. The final nail in that coffin is when she was filming a scene for the movie Strange Days. That is because she drove into a telephone pole. How did she miss it? She explained, “I am backing up, looking behind, but I am going forward.” Thus, she has a stunt driver who does all of her driving scenes.

The moral of this story is not, what can’t Angela Bassett do. It is if you see her in a car driving, then get to safety. If not, then you might need to call 9-1-1, and I am not talking about her show. Joking, she is probably a driver than most of us. At least when the camera is not on her.


There’s a wedding on The Neighborhood, Get to know Athena on 9-1-1
November 4th, 2019 under Angela Bassett, CBS, Ryan Murphy, Tichina Arnold. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on CBS’s The Neighborhood, it is Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer) and Tina’s (Tichina Arnold) 30th anniversary. As soon a Gemma (Beth Behrs) finds that out, she convinces them to have the wedding they never had. They got married the first time around in a courthouse.

Gemma gets so excited; she is spending their money like it grows on trees. Something that the very cheap Calvin does not like. He does something that causes Tina to call off the wedding.

Will Calvin and Tina get married or get divorced? You have to tune in to find out. There are definitely a lot of funny twists and turns throughout the episode.

Also at 8p but over on Fox, we learn Athena’s (Angela Bassett) backstory on 9-1-1. Before she was a police officer, she wanted to be a lawyer. Then one day, she met Emmett, a cop, and she fell in love. Not only did he convince her to become a cop, but he also asked her to marry him. She said yes.

Before they said I do, he was killed on the job, and his killer was never caught. That was until now. The gun that killed her first love has just been found, and she is going to do everything she can to trace back who had it on that fateful night. She will do things that will put her risk.

How far will she go to find her fiance’s killer? You are going to watch this episode that finally explains why she is the way that she is.
