Last time we spoke to Marlon Wayans, he was promoting A Haunted House back in January 2013.
A little over a year later, there’s A Haunted House 2, revisiting Malcolm (Wayans) after he loses his possessed girlfriend in a car crash. In a new home, wouldn’t you know that Malcolm is again experiencing paranormal activity?
Wayans, 41, claims he didn’t initially plan on making A HH2, but after the first one grossed more than $40 million domestically on a $2.5 million budget, well, the offer was just too hard to refuse.
“I’m not George Lucas; I don’t have that kind of money,” said Wayans from the W South Beach Hotel. “I didn’t know the first one was going to make money. Like [in an exaggerated version of Lucas’ voice], ‘The next trilogy is going to be a prequel.’ Nah, that’s not me.”
Judging by the trailer and poster, AHH2 has just enough raunch (e.g., a crazed female doll plays an, um, active role) to appeal to certain audience members.
If the second go-around does as well as Wayans hopes, we might be both horrified and amused in 2015 with a third one, says the onetime In Living Color star, who shares writing and producing credits.
“ Bang! I’m ready for the next one. It don’t take me long!” Wayans yelled. “Are you ready?”
True or false?
Bet William Levy wishes he could just put the rumors that he is with his La Tempestad costar Ximena Navarrete to rest , but this is tough one. Some tabloids (think TV Notas) are relentless. Navarette Tweeted to her 610K followers that there is no truth to the story that also alleges the onetime Miss Universe is pregnant with the father of two’s child, posting “Don’t believe everything you read.” Time will tell on that one, but according to the tab, Levy is separated from longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Gutierrez.
Serena Williams is known for her intensity on the court, but in the May issue of Fitness, on newsstands Tuesday, the 32-year-old tennis star opens up about her softer side.
“I think of myself as two different people. There’s the Serena Williams that everyone knows: She’s crazy. She can’t make a mistake. And she’s angry and just not nice, to be honest. I’m only that person for three hours a day when I’m on the court.”
Williams — who has a home in Palm Beach Gardens and recently bought 2.4 acre home site in Jupiter’s Bear’s Club community, where Michael Jordan has a place — didn’t always embrace her curves. “When I was young I thought I should be built more like an athlete — long and lean — not with a womanly figure. But then people my age started coming up to me and saying, ‘I love you because of the way you look.’ That was really motivating.”
