GMA: Kerry Washington In Peeples
In Peeples, Kerry Washington’s character gets into hot water when she doesn’t tell her family about the man she is seeing. He suddenly shows up at their family reunion and she has to explain to everyone that she’s marrying him.
The role is a 180 from her role on Scandal. Washington has done comedy before, but now more than ever, she says, the world needs a reason to laugh. The film will leave you feeling good about life, love and family.

GMA: Natalie Maines Performs With Ben Harper
If the name Natalie Maines sounds familiar, it should. She was a part of the country chick power band, The Dixie Chicks. You may be picturing cowboy boots and blonde locks. No more are the days of Dixie. Natalie has traded her blonde hair for a brunette pompadour. Think P!nk, but country. The look is a fresh start that suits her well.
Natalie Maines still had her amazing voice, but this sound is a little more Melissa Ethridge. She’s put her cowboy boots away for heels, a miniskirt and a matching black blazer. This harsh look clashed with her flowered guitar. In all, the new sound is interesting and worth a listen.
