Gina Prince Bythewood is a rare breed in Hollywood: a black woman who calls the shots behind the camera. And in the case of her directorial debut, it was “shots” of two types that needed tending to. In 1995, after laboring as a TV writer on A Different World and Felicity—and frustrated by her lack of creative control—she penned Love and Basketball, which tells the story of hoops-shooting childhood sweethearts who share a passion for the sport. Five years later, when the film was released, it became the top-grossing film of all time by an African American woman. That success led to a job writing and directing The Secret Life of Bees—featuring the all-star cast of Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys and Dakota Fanning. “There were a lot of fights along the way but they were worth it,” Gina tells us of the film. “My biggest argument was that I can just never, ever sit in a theater looking up at my film and be disgusted or disappointed at something I’m watching. I have to believe in every frame.”

Dr. Gina joins Joe to discuss the issues of famous people and suicide, tune in and check it out.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
