It was a big night for former All My Children star Michael B. Jordan (Ex-Reggie), as well as the cast of Fox’s Empire, at the 47th annual NAACP Image Awards broadcast on Friday night on TV One.

The motion picture Creed was the big winner of the night in the film category, winning every category it was in!  Jordan received not only Outstanding Actor in a Motion Picture for his work in the film, but also the evening’s highest honor of Entertainer of the Year. This year’s ceremonies were notable especially for taking place in the midst of an important debate about diversity, or the lack thereof, in Hollywood after many in the African-American film community felt snubbed at this year’s Academy Award nominations, especially because of critically-acclaimed films such as Straight Outta Compton being dissed.

In the television categories, it was Fox’s sudsy drama Empire that took home the prize for Outstanding Drama Series with its leading stars winning, too! Taraji P. Henson took home the award for her performance as Cookie Lyon in the Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series category.  Her counterpart, Terrence Howard (Lucious Lyon) won the prize in the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series field.

Empire’s Jussie Smollett (Jamal) took home two awards in musical and recording categories.  First, for Outstanding Song along with the Empire cast and Yazz for “You’re So Beautiful”.  And second. for Outstanding Group or Duo Collaboration for his performance fo the song “Conqueror” with Estelle.

The 47th Annual NAACP Awards were handed out at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium in Pasadena California.  For the complete list of winners click here.

Maurice Benard Reveals All My Children’s Lee Meriweather and Daughter’s Alzheimer’s Diagnosis

At the beginning of the latest episode of General Hospital star, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos) State of Mind series, he delivered some heartbreaking news with a purpose.

Kyle Oldham, the daughter of former All My Children star, Lee Meriwether (ex-Ruth Martin), who previously made a guest appearance on Benard’s show, returned for a new interview which will be coming soon.

During their conversation, Oldham shared that her beloved mother has Alzheimer’s. Sadly, according to Benard, Kyle also revealed she has been diagnosed with the disease as well.

Maurice expressed, “We talked about her mother and having Alzheimer’s and it was an amazing interview. And then Kyle said, ‘I gotta tell you something. I have Alzheimer’s.’”

Apparently, Kyle has agreed to come on State of Mind, periodically as the effects of Alzheimer’s take a hold of her to help educate others. “We decided that she was gonna come in … she was gonna call me and tell me as she progresses,” Benard shared. “She was going to come in again so the audience could see with their eyes what Alzheimer’s does to someone.”

Benard’s guest for this current episode of State of Mind was Vernee Watson (Stella, GH), who along with Maurice, was part of the Alzheimer’s storyline on the ABC daytime drama series that saw Mike Corbin (Max Gail) eventually pass away.

As for Lee Meriwether, not only is she known for her role on AMC, but also for her roles as Catwoman in Batman: The Movie, and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father, and for the television series, Barnaby Jones, the New Andy Griffith Show and The Munsters to name only a few.

In soap operas, Meriwether was cast in The Young Marrieds years prior to her time on All My Children where she replaced Mary Fickett in the matriarchal role in the Martin family. She played the role from 1996-99, 2002-03, and 2007-11.

Meriwether’s daughter, Kyle Oldham, has been an actress and spokesperson herself through the years. She appeared on The Price is Right for over 14 years until she couldn’t anymore after going through multiple surgeries in her adult life.

You can check out the full episode of State of Mind with Maurice an Vernee below.
