We’ve got pics of Amber Rose getting kissy for her role in “black-ish.” We’ve also got Gabourey Sidibe’s response to the haters who had ish to say about her “Empire” love scene. Get it all inside….
Amber Rose is steadily building her acting credits and has landed a new gig in a hit comedy series. The Sister Code actress will be guest-starring on this Wednesday’s episode of the ABC series “black-ish.”
And she's keeping it steamy:
The 32-year-old star, who recently released her new book “How To Be A Bad B*tch,” will play Dominique, an ex-girlfriend of Charlie (played by Deon Cole).
In this episode, Charlie ends up babysitting the kids while Dre and Bow take their eldest Zoey to visit Brown University, her mom’s alma mater. The kids come up with a plan to make Dominique think he’s their dad in order to get him in her good graces. This should be good.
Check out the new episode Wednesday, November 11th at 9:30/8:30c on ABC.

Last week’s opening scene of “Empire” certainly kicked off the episode on a high-note. Actress Gabourey Sidibe starred in a love scene and it had everyone talking. And of course, the memes quickly started making their rounds on social media. One in particular:
Well, Gabby is clapping back at those who had negative things to say about her love scene. In so many words, y’all can say whatever you want because she’s booked! And we love it. In a blog post on EW, she writes,
Also, yes. I, a plus sized, dark-skinned woman, had a love scene on primetime television. I had the most fun ever filming that scene even though I was nervous. But I felt sexy and beautiful and I felt like I was doing a good job. I’m very proud of the work we all did to make that scene a great opening for the episode. I keep hearing that people are “hating” on it. I’m not sure how anyone could hate on love but that’s okay. You may have your memes. Honestly, I’m at work too busy to check Twitter anyway. #Booked. Hope you enjoy next week’s show!
