Vivica Fox Goes Old Hollywood +The Obama Girls Hit Broadway

Vivica Fox is covering Mia Magazine and doing it old Hollywood glamour style.  In this issue, she discusses how she maintains longevity in this business and also which roles she lost to Halle Berry. On the role she wishes she had gotten to play: Storm [in X-Men], which went to Halle Berry.  I came close, but they went with her, which is OK, but I would have really loved to do that. More on Viv and pics of FLOTUS and the Obama girls in NYC when you read the rest...

Looking nice Viv. And while President Obama was on Capitol Hill getting the Healthcare bill passed yesterday, First Lady Michelle Obama took Sasha and Malia to NYC for their Spring Break:

The Obama ladies saw the Broadway musical Memphis.  And looked like the fab First Family that they are while doing so.  By the way, the Obamas just announced that their next State Dinner will be May 19th and will be in honor of the President of Mexico Felipe Calderon.  Party crashers...don't get any ideas.

I'm not understanding people

I'm not understanding people saying Halle can't act, that is honestly laughable. Introducing Dorothy Dandridge, anyone?

It is so easy for people to

It is so easy for people to say Halle did not earn her Oscar, but if you go and take a look back at the performances from the five nominated ladies that year, she clearly deserved her time at the podium, in fact, the only show she didn't win at that year was the Globes. Denzel, however, should not have won over Russell Crowe. He had been robbed for 'Malcolm X' and 'The Hurricane', but his performance in 'Training Day' was simply inferior to Crowe in 'A Beautiful Mind'. As for those saying Vivica would have made a better Storm, she is honestly one of the worst black actresses in the business, which is something I don't understand because it has always been that way with her. Unlike wine, she has indeed gotten worst with age.

The Obama girls are gorgeous.

The Obama girls are gorgeous. Black is beautiful in every shade. White folks think that Halle is Dark by their standards. They always have her in the make up match up section in their magazine with the description..For dark skin then beside it a pic of Halle. Just recently I saw the same thing for Zoe Saldana.

I really wish someone would

I really wish someone would do the older daughter's hair. She looks like a hobo. Let me not see her in person, I'm reaching for my comb and grabbin that head.....if secret service doesnt shoot me first "DONT SHOOT, DONT SHOOT!! It's just a comb, olive oil hair spray and a flat iron"

Actually the comic book

Actually the comic book character, Storm, is a dark skinned woman with white hair. Halle doesn't meet the physical criteria of the comic book character... Look it up. Vivica closely matched the "look" of Storm. A young Angela Bassett would have been a perfect fit. Or even a beefed up Gabriel Union.

Love the Obama girls. Sasha

Love the Obama girls. Sasha and Malia is just to darn adorable. And Michelle O always looks classy. Vivica looks good on that cover, I' am glad she is revamping her image because for awhile homegirl lost her damn mind by messing with rappers, her looks, etc. Hope her career takes off where she can give us the acting she did before I think either Halle or vivica would have made a great storm @BE4REAL What is REAL black people? I never knew there were "fake" black people so I guess biracial people and light skin black people are fake...lol ahhh...SMH do better people!

Give credit where credit is

Give credit where credit is due. I honestly think Vivica would have made a better Storm because she has more of a edge than Halle...more spunk. She would have given the character personality so to speak.

And so is Oprah for that

And so is Oprah for that matter (in regards to the dark-skinned women comment). She's as "dark skinned/black" as they come...didn't you see The Color Purple??

MICHELLE OBAMA LOOKS GREAT.

MICHELLE OBAMA LOOKS GREAT. SHE HAS A FIT BODY. I THINK SHE IS A SIZE 8 WHICH IS GREAT FOR A MOM. THE OBAMA GIRLS ARE SO GORGEOUS. SASHA AND MALIA'S HAIR IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND THEY DRESS SO CUTE. WE HAVE A LOT TO BE PROUD OF AS BLACK AMERICANS. WHO CARES IF OBAMA IS MIXED! BARACK OBAMA IS MARRIED TO A BLACK DARK SKIN WOMAN AND THEY HAVE BEAUTIFUL CHILDREN. HE CONSIDERS HIMSELF BLACK SO BE PROUD!

Can't wait to see where the Obama girls are going this time when they are out for the summer. I hope they go to Asia when the president go.

Its Ironic that Vivica lost

Its Ironic that Vivica lost the role of Storm, because I have always thought that she would make a great comic book action star, she's got the name of a badass female action star.
LadyWest's picture

She should feel some kinda

She should feel some kinda way about losing a role to Halle. Halle simply cannot act and does horrible movies. I STILL don't know why she got an Oscar for Monster's Ball. It was a bad movie that she was equally bad in. She's a beautiful woman, but her acting leaves A LOT to be desired.

A WOMAN OF COLOR( NON MUTT)

A WOMAN OF COLOR( NON MUTT) WILL ALWAYS LOSE IN AMERICA. WHITE MEDIA DOES NOT LIKE COLOR. IN WHITE MEDIA STANDARDS OUR BEST IS HALF OF THEM. A BLACK PERSON OF TWO BLACK PERENTS WILL NEVER BE OUR BEST. WITH FOLKS LIKE OBAMA AND HALLE IT IS LIKE- OKAY WE WILL GIVE YOU A VICTORY BUT ONLY SO WE CAN SAY WELL THEY ARE HALF WHITE YOUR SO CALLED CHAMPION THAT IS WHY THEY ARE GOOD. ( WHITE FOLKS CHANTED THIS AS SOON AS OBAMA WAS ELECTED)!!!!!!!!!!! BLACK AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP 4REAL!!! HALLE BERRY IS OVER RATED PERIOD.. SHE GETS GREAT ROLES BUT HER ACTING SOMETIMES IS NO BETTER THAN BEYONCE!!!!!YES ANGELA BASSETTS, ALFRE WOODARDS, ETC CAN ACT WAY BETTER BUT AMERICA LIKES LIGHT PERIOD. WHITE AMERICA STANDARDS OF BLACK BEUATY IS ONLY LIGHT PERIOD... AND BLACKS PERPETUATE. EVERYSONG HAS HALLE BERRY, YELLOW BONE, BAD YELLOW BROAD.. MOST OF THECELEBS ONTV ARE SPORTING OR THEIR KIDS ARE!!!! NOT A CHOCOLATE SISTER OR ANTHING ALWAYS A LIGHT CHICK.. WHITE AND BLACK AMERICA HATE BLACK PEOPLE. THEY LOVE MUTTS THOUGH!!! BLACK AMERICA HATES REAL BLACK PEOPLE!!!! BLACK AMERICA HATES REAL BLACK PEOPLE!!!! BLACK AMERICA HATES REAL BLACK PEOPLE!!!! BLACK AMERICA HATES REAL BLACK PEOPLE!!!!

posted by Somebody Mon,

posted by Somebody Mon, March 22, 2010 11:35 AM I really don’t care for Vivca. And she will never be “Old Hollywood” She will be old and she will be Hollywood, but never together. Okay that was mean. -------------------------------- But funny as hell! I'm not a hater by any means (because I can give credit where it's due), but I think Halle Berry is really overrated as an actress. "Monster's Ball" -- in my opinion -- wasn't a good movie, and she wasn't good in it (other than the scenes with her banging on the glass after her character's son died, and "I want you to make me feel GOOD!"). Denzel earned his Oscar that year (for playing a character completely different than most we have seen him in), but in my opinion Halle did not. She was better in "Losing Isaiah". I think that the clout she has an actress comes more from her beauty, the perceptions of her nice-girl/down-trodden by men perception and less for her acting chops. Say what you will about Vivica, but she has some fire and attitude when it comes to the roles she plays. Unfortunately the roles seem to be fewer and farther between.

I LIKE VIVICA, I THINK SHE IS

I LIKE VIVICA, I THINK SHE IS A GOOD ACTRESS. AND SHE LOOKS GOOD KEEPING HERSELF UP. I DON'T CARE FOR MOVIES LIKE XMEN. OR ANY KIND OF ACTION OR SCI FI MOVIES. BUT I DO KNOW WHAT THEY ARE. AND I COULD SEE HER AS STORM. HER OR HALLE WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT. LOVED HER IN KILL BILL. ANYWAY, THE OBAMA GIRLS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND SMART. MY DAUGHTER IS A HONOR STUDENT ALSO. I WANT HER TO GO TO COLLEGE AND BE SUCCESSFUL TOO, LIKE THE OBAMAS ARE DOING FOR THEIR CHILDREN. THEY ARE EXCELLENT EXAMPLES FOR YOUNG GIRLS.

Yeah I could see Viv playing

Yeah I could see Viv playing Storm over Halle...I just think a woman with more attitude and fight in her should've played that...When I think of Halle, I don't think of her in a fighting role...I think Viv would'v worked that Storm out!!

I actually think Vivica

I actually think Vivica would've made a better Storm than Halle Berry. While I've only seen Vivica play 'hood' roles, I still think she's a better actress than Halle Berry. JMHO.

@ ThatIam, I dont think Viv

@ ThatIam, I dont think Viv is complaining or ashamed, I think she is just saying that was a role she wish she had play, nothing is wrong with that. Going to auditon is a crazy and hard thing within itself. To be black and being a woman in hollywood is hard enough with the shortage of roles that are available for them is far few and inbetween. I was thinking the same thing when they said that Halle Berry was playing the role of Storm, Halle looks nothing like Storm in any of the comics or cartoon. I was thinking of Angie B. for that role myself.

I think Viv should've gotten

I think Viv should've gotten an Oscar for playing Frankie, too. That was the best role I've seen her in. They give Oscars to anybody nowadays.
