The end of this week’s hump day is near, and while you may be anticipating the start to a new weekend, keep in mind that there are TWO new shows airing tonight that you should not overlook. For horror lovers like myself, the newest installment of “American Horror Story: Freak Show”, premieres on FX. Just in time for the Halloween season, I can’t wait to see Jessica Lange continue being the BOSS that she is, along with the usual repertory players that Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk love to gift with a new character each season. I hope that this won’t be a flop for me like AHS: Coven was (I just couldn’t sit through the whole season like I did with AHS: Asylum!).
The other show that I have my eye on tonight is….”Hollywood Divas“. Before you swiftly judge me, hear me out. With all of the talk in recent years of how Black actresses deserve much better in Hollywood and beyond, I am very curious to see a group of those who I practically have grown up watching on the screen, talk candidly about Hollywood and their experiences. Not bereft of talent, I am DOWN for seeing Paula Jai Parker, Elise Neal, Countess Vaughn, and Golden Brooks create their own project for public consumption, while we also get an idea about what their lives have been like since we’ve last saw them consistently on the small/big screens. I am not familiar with the last Hollywood Diva, Lisa Wu, but soon I will be. Being homeless in Hollywood is real, but so is having a great comeback.
