Actress Regina Hall attends the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party hosted by Graydon Carter on March 2, 2014 in West Hollywood, California
*Fresh from her feature film “About Last Night,” Regina Hall has secured a recurring role in the new FX series “Married,” set to premiere this summer.
Created, directed and executive produced by Andrew Gurland, “Married” stars Nat Faxon and Judy Greer as Russ and Lina Bowman, who can barely remember their life before kids, debt, and suburbia threw a wrench in their romance. But every once in a while they are reminded what drew them together in the first place: They’re best friends.

Hall will next be seen on the big screen in “Think Like A Man Too,” due in June.

*It’s going down on the next episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
OK, maybe it won’t be as dramatic as we’re trying to make it sound, but Kenya Moore is gonna confront Apollo Nida about basically saying things about her are untrue.
“I see they’re in protection mode; they’re trying to keep you out of trouble,” Kenya said about the other men on the cast with a laugh before getting right to the matter at hand. “It seemed as though when Phaedra [Parks] and I fell out, you and I were still cool.
