    Are Tracee Ellis Ross and Malcolm-Jamal Warner an item?

    Actors Tracee Ellis Ross and Malcolm-Jamal Warner, stars of BET’s new sitcom “Reed Between the Lines,” have such believable on-screen chemistry that some have wondered how that translates to their personal lives.

    "I think one of the things that allows our friendship and our chemistry to be what it is is that we’re so not thinking of that," Malcolm told TheGrio.com.

    His answer was a bit more composed than Tracee’s. The former “Girlfriends” actor laughed out loud at the thought.

    "That’s hysterical,” she said. “It’s not that sexy, crazy thing; it’s part of our job."

    Both Tracee and Malcolm are believed to be in romantic relationships. Tracee is rumored to be dating Akon’s younger brother, Bu Thaim, while Malcolm is in a relationship with actress Regina King.

    Rihanna wishes Chris Brown well

    Although she admits she once was angry about their violent and highly publicized breakup, it seems Rihanna holds no ill will toward former beau Chris Brown.

    “It’s incredible to see how he pulled out of it the way he did. Even when the world seemed like it was against him, you know? Obviously, I had some resentment toward him for a while, for obvious reasons. But I’ve put that behind me. It was taking up too much of my time. It was too much anger,” she told Esquire magazine.

    “I’m really excited to see the breakthrough he’s had in his career. I would never wish anything horrible for him. Never. I never have,” she said.

    Now that she’s let go of the resentment, Rihanna said she can continue to appreciate Chris as an artist.

    “I really like the music he’s putting out. I’m a fan of his stuff. I’ve always been a fan.”
