Marla Gibbs shares an image from History of the World: Part II

About a year ago, Hulu announced that they were teaming up with Mel Brooks to finally give us History of the World: Part II. Since then, we have not heard a lot about it.

However, this week, Marla Gibbs shared a photo on the set with Wanda Sykes, who is a writer on the show, and Kym Whitley. The three women and a mystery actor (no one I know could place him) are telling Shirley Chisholm’s story. She is the first African-American woman Congressperson and the first African-American to run for President in a majority party.

There is still no word when the series will debut. But this image makes me even more excited about it. Do you feel the same way?

Would Wanda Sykes host the Oscars again?

Wanda Sykes hosted the Oscars this year with Amy Schumer and Regina Hall. As we know, it was a memorable night, but not for the movies that won.

So yesterday, when the comedian was on Live with Kelly and Ryan, Ryan Seacrest wanted to know if she would do it again. Sykes told him, “Oh! Hell! No!”

“I shouldn’t say it like that,” the actress said, “It was an amazing honor. I think it is something you want to do. You do it once. And I don’t know if I would want to do it again. It is a huge job. It took a lot of people to clean me up.”

Personally, I would love to see her get a do-over. I think she could host Hollywood’s biggest night all by herself, and it will be an enjoyable show. The three hosts thing just didn’t work.

Wanda Sykes thinks it was ‘gross’ that the Academy let Will Smith stay

Wanda Sykes is going to be on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on April 7th, but she taped her appearance yesterday. The first question Ellen asked her was about the slap heard around the world at the Oscars.

Sykes told the host she was preparing to do a costume change when Will Smith slapped Chris Rock, so she didn’t see it happen. However, everyone backstage was in shock and could not believe what had just transpired, including the Oscars host.

Sykes said when she was shown what happened, she said she “just felt so awful for my friend Chris. And it was sickening, absolutely sickening. I physically felt ill, and I’m still a little traumatized by it.”

She was also sickened by the fact that the Academy let Smith stay at the Oscars and accept his award for Best Actor. She thought, “how gross is this. This is the wrong message.”

Had AMPAS made the correct decision to kick him out, Sykes would’ve joked, “Will couldn’t be here tonight…”

Then Sykes added that she thinks Smith owes her, Amy Schumer, and Regina Hall an apology because the three of them “worked really hard to put that show together.” And with in less than one minute, he destroyed everything that they did that night.

While Smith did not apologize to her, Rock did. Sykes says that she saw Rock at a party, and “the first thing he said was, ‘I’m so sorry.’ I am like, ‘Why are you apologizing?’ He’s like, ‘It was supposed to be your night. You, and Amy and Regina, y’all were doing such a great job; I’m so sorry this is now going to be about this.’ Because that’s who Chris is.”

Syke’s cohost Schumer also weighed in with, “Still triggered and traumatized. I love my friend @chrisrock and believe he handled it like a pro. Stayed up there and gave an Oscar to his friend @questlove and the whole thing was so disturbing. So much pain in @willsmith anyway I’m still in shock and stunned and sad. Im proud of myself and my cohosts. But yeah. Waiting for this sickening feeling to go away from what we all witnessed.”

When Smith comes out of hiding, he is going to need to do a lot of apologizing, along with soul searching. I hope he is doing the latter because he has rightfully burned a lot of bridges.
