    Yay. Love her in everything she’s done so far. I’ve been watching her on The Big C for years as well as her movies: Precious and Tower Heist.

    Remember when Howard Stern said she was “too fat” and “too Black” to work in Hollywood after Precious? Guess the joke is on him. She starred in Tower Heist, a hit at the box office, a critically successful show on Showtime, The Big C, was the host of PBS’ AfroPop and now will be on American Horror Story which is an acclaimed hit show. Who’s laughing now Stern?
