This Weekend’s Movie & TV Heat: Black Girls Rock, Married to Medicine Returns & More

New film release via ABC Air Power Prep:


It: Chapter Two — The sequel to the 2017 adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel picks up 27 years after the events of the first film, which saw the Losers Club of Derry, Maine successfully defeat Pennywise, the evil clown who awakens every twenty-seven years to feed on the fear of children that it murders — or so they thought. The sequel stars James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone and Andy Bean as the adult versions of the Losers Club, who have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back to Derry. Jaeden Martell, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Jack Dylan Grazer and Wyatt Oleff reprise their roles as the younger Losers. Bill Skarsgård also returns as Pennywise.  Rated R.

Ari Lennox, India.Arie, Common, Erykah Badu, Elle Varner, Monica and others are among the musical guests for BET’s Black Girls Rock 2019 Sunday night. Black Girls Rock is hosted by Niecy Nash. The beautiful Angela Bassett will receive the Icon Award, Regina King will get the Star Power Award, and Ciara is this year’s Rock Star Award recipient.

In reality tea, Sunday night it’s the season finale of Real Housewives of Potomac. They’re sure to end the season with a drama-filled, shade-throwing bang! On a high note, we’ll get to see Ashley and Michael see their baby for the first time.


That’ll be followed by season 7 ‘Married to Medicine’. New beginnings are in store but here’s a recap of season’s past — and what’s to come!

Season 6 Power, episode 3 titled, ‘Forgot About Dre’ goes down Sunday night on Starz. After assisting Angela in the arrest of Alicia Jiminez, Dre remains in the custody of the Federal Government. The AUSAs turn the heat up on Dre, too.

But praise report — 50 is set to bring back the original Big Rich Town theme song with Joe! Love you Trey but baby, sit this one out.

Enjoy your weekend – and happy watching!
