It was about 2 weeks ago when Sergio asked that very question - What happened to Queen of Media (that's the film's title)? The $3 million movie loosely-based on Wendy's Got the Heat (a best-selling autobiography by Wendy Williams, detailing her rise to fame - drug addiction, divorce, miscarriages, infidelity, and more) which starred Robin Givens in the title role, and was directed by Furqaan Clover and Richard S. Miller.

Some of you might remember my May 2011 post, revealing that the multi-talented Tupac Shakur wrote a screenplay - the only one he ever penned - while he was in jail for a weapons charge, written over an 11-month sentence at the Clinton Correctional Facility in Dannemora, N.Y., in 1995; and in that post, I mentioned that Preston Holmes and Ivan Juzang's NStar Studios (who collaborated with Shakur's mother to make the documentary Tupac: Resurrection), had acquired rights to the script, with plans to produce a film some time this year.
