Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson

Tracee Ellis Ross is asking network bosses for a raise to close the pay gap between her and Black-ish co-star Anthony Anderson -- even though he has more responsibilities than she does.

Ellis Ross is battling ABC network bosses for equal pay despite the fact that Anderson holds dual roles as actor and executive producer on Black-ish.

Ellis Ross says earning the same pay as Anderson is fair because it symbolizes equality in Hollywood.

Tracee Ellis Ross at The 49th NAACP Image Awards

via WENN.com -- A network source explained to THR that Anderson's pay reflects his dual roles as actor and executive producer. However, Ellis Ross has won a Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy or musical TV series in 2017, and while Anderson has been nominated for Emmys and Golden Globes, he missed out on the honors.

The 45-year-old actress, the daughter of singer Diana Ross, reportedly plans to scale back her appearances on the show if the pay row isn't settled, meaning she will be free to make appearances on other shows to increase her income.

Black-ish dominated in the television categories at the NAACP Image Awards which took place at the Civic Auditorium in Pasadena, California on Monday, Jan. 15. The show won Outstanding Comedy Series and acting prizes for Ellis Ross and show host Anderson.

    and I agree. She's definitely a needed character in the show. She's funny as hell and i enjoy watching her, even more than Anthony although i do enjoy Anthony too but overall she is an essential part of the show and should be paid if not exactly what Anthony earns very close to it. And Anthony should be on her side with this and represent.

    And Anthony ain't winning all the awards for this show...she is so give her what is due.

  • Phillybruh

    His Producer fees are separate from his actor fees. Pay her and the oldest son. I could actually do with a lot less Anthony to be honest. YAY Grownish got a season 2

  • ShelbyMoore

    I though Anthony was also an EP on the show? No?

    ----These ppl just don't know I'll grab my bag and leave...like leave me alone. TF

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    So stupid. I'm so sick of this gender pay bs. This is why you make less "He does most of the work". The end.

  • Mark mcharm

    They are about to" suzane summers" her if she keeps it up.?

  • Mark mcharm

    We don't know what his contract is like like every job i am sure they have a budget damn she has to be making 50 grand a show how much does she need.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Right? Ppl are greedy. I'll do the show and take my pay and be happy damn.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yup. She can be replaced. They can write a divorce into the script, (or have her character die off), and give Anthony Anderson a new wife before the end of the season.
    And the show will go on. If she thinks she's irreplaceable she might be in for a rude awakening.

  • Wreckognize Game

    They could Judy Winslow her ass

  • Phillybruh

    Considering she is just as nominated as he is for the show. If he's making 150 an episode she should be getting 100. The show doesn't work without her. He's not that entertaining.

  • datjerk

    she deserves it. she is just as funny as he is tbh.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    It's not about being funny tho...

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Maybe they should replace her with Tiffany Haddish or some other funny, talented black actress. She wont be missed all that much.

  • Yardgirl

    If you don't ask you don't get. I learned that from a powerful woman years ago and she was right. Tracee should make as much as Anthony.

  • NeverSurprised

    Very bad form to do this publicly. This is a discussion/negotiation for her agent to have with producers, not air the matter in a way that embarrasses the production company, the network and Anderson. She should be negotiating for a producer or co-exec producer credit and structured raises in upcoming seasons.

    With this behavior, they will write her off of this show as quickly as they wrote James Evans off of Good Times. I know women in Hollywood are feeling all-powerful at the moment, but it is never a good idea to poke the bear.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    She'll prolly quit to prove a point but they won't care and replace her.

  • Rayne

    Did that girl and guy really name that baby Chicago West? Stand back cause I’m bussing up ??????????

  • NeverSurprised

    Gone as quickly as James Evans.

  • Phillybruh

    They would at this point have to pay Tiffany more than Anthony.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Why? Anthony has been in the game way longer and again we don't know the specifics of his contract so, yea....

  • Applebootay

    NOT TODAY SANDRA...not falling for the click bait today. You know darn well doing most of the work has nothing to do with equality. At the end of the day, its ALL ABOUT RATINGS...and if she won an GOLDEN GLOBE, and he didn't that means people are tuning in to see HER just as much. PAY HER..

  • Phillybruh

    Doesn't matter Tiffany is hot right now and if they wanted her they have to pay her. Sorry but Tracee was on a sitcom that lasted 8 seasons that is far longer than Anthony has ever had on TV and bit parts don't count.

  • MissHarlem

    This is annoying. Mainly because it doesn't make sense. A manager doesn't get paid the same as people he/she manages. Period. The debate about her part on the show is separate from the salary discussion ?

  • MissyJ

    I'd have to know what the discrepancy is before I can fully weigh in. I don't think she does EQUAL but I can see the gap closing a bit if it's far off.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Tiffany will probably get more than Tracee but I don't think she'll get the same as Anthony. Contracts do matter tho.

  • Trace da Ace

    yeesssss!!!! I think that is so ugly for a baby name......damn shame....he should have named her after his mother....

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Golden Globes are given for performance, not ratings.

  • Trace da Ace

    never watched the show...so ...umm....good luck with that Tracy.....

  • Vonn

    He sure isn't.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Here's a question. Do women complain when they make more than their male counterparts? Cuz that's true equality, wanting your male co workers to get the same as you (when you make more) or does that not matter? Do they just want to eat their cake and not get fat?

  • HIS4EVA

    wait! nooo!

  • Applebootay

    DUH!! ....AWARDED PERFORMANCE = RATINGS...IF you don't perform well, people don't watch the show. She is funny and a integral part of the show.

  • Kayke

    I bet she wouldn't be having it if the tables were turned. Equal pay for unequal work is ridiculous. Between this and some of those #metoo stories.... Male Hollywood is letting women dig their own graves ...as we know the faux pucci train is here with our "replacements".
    Stop the nonsense.

  • Phillybruh

    Contracts can always be redone. Tracee will get her raise. She should have gotten it already. The show does not work without her. But it could work without him.

  • MsPam

    Me and you both. I don’t think Anthony nor Tracee is funny. IMO

  • BlahBlahBlah

    Dis sum bull shyt. mix it up and bring in the white step moms.

  • Phillybruh

    Some roles can not be replaced on shows and Hers and Juniors are one of them. Get rid of either of them and this show moves to Friday

  • NeverSurprised

    Golden Globes are awarded by the Hollywood FOREIGN Press Association. They have NOTHING to do with ratings.

  • Bonsai

    She did the same thing with the "Girlfriend" show and the Toni character. Don't start. Jeez!

  • Phillybruh

    I could understand that argument if she weren't important to the show.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    That used to be my show!

  • Kayke

    They could scrap the show as it's mediocre at best.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    That makes three of us that have never watched the show.

  • Applebootay

    Well you'd have to watch it to have an opinion right? The two of them together is magic, they're not doing stand up routines. This show tackles some tough issues, race, politics, religion, socialism, history, etc....it sends powerful messages with a funny twist....you should give a try.

  • MsPam

    She needs to chill because her last name is what is getting her through the doors in Hollywood!

  • Kayke

    It's only public to drive public opinion as it's trending to be victimized by hollywood. There are bigger stars and better shows who have negotiated and we know nothing about it.

  • Applebootay

    She won a golden globe for that show, so that means whyt people watch and like it. Meaning more people think its above average.

  • Phillybruh

    Toni left to do that show on CBS.

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Wait wait wait... Are you serious right now?? THAT'S the name they came up with for their new baby girl?

  • Kayke

    Please don't.... She's so not funny.

  • Applebootay

    Is she doing it publicly or did it get leaked? I don't remember her saying anything publicly about it. 99.9999999% of what you read here is an rumor and gossip. Sooooooooo

  • Branch Davidian

    White people don't like it. They watch it because they are afraid of being called racist if they don't..

  • Phillybruh

    They both make less than their white counterparts on shows that aren't doing aswell.

  • Applebootay

    You still don't get it....ANSWER THIS....DO SHOWS WITH LOW RATINGS WIN AWARDS????????????????

  • Phillybruh

    So how would we know white people aren't watching it?

  • MsPam

    I was talking about in general, saw him on different tv shows, she gets a pass because of her last name. I stand behind what I said! They’re not funny to me!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I like Tracie ...?

  • Phillybruh

    Then why don't her other siblings have shows?

  • Applebootay

    I know you were speaking "in general" and I was making a point that generality doesn't relate here. They are not comedians...its the script and the show we're speaking of. Them being "funny" is irrelevant to this topic.

  • MissHarlem

    So if she was the EP on the show as well as an actress (meaning she's collecting two checks) should Anthony ask for the same with one title?! I would tell Anthony same thing foh. I mean cmon and I like Tracee her mom eh but her I like.

  • You Could Never

    Bloop

  • Applebootay

    Her younger brother is an actor... He made his acting debut in the 2006 drama film ATL, and has since starred in the films Pride (2007), According to Greta (2009), Mooz-lum (2010), 96 Minutes (2011), Supremacy (2014), and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014) and Part 2 (2015).

    On television, Ross had a recurring role as Charlie Selby on The CW's teen drama series 90210, and starred on ABC's crime drama series Wicked City
    as Diver Hawkes. As a musician, Ross released his first single "Yes Me"
    in February 2011, and his second single "How To Live Alone" in May
    2015.

    I haven't seen this show but heard its good...

  • 1BlueStar

    Why get the same pay when you don't do the same amount of work? I don't get it or her train of thought on this one. She gone keep on, and they gone "Aunt Viv" her right off the show. I really do like Black-ish, but.....

  • Trace da Ace

    so dead over this meme!!!!

  • imright

    did u guys read the story about a young black male nurse in CHICAGO invited his friends to the facility to rape dementia patients as he filmed & photographed them ?!?! sick bastard !!! ????

  • Applebootay

    Right! I tell my children all the time, if you're going to have an opinion, at least let it be an educated one....her brother is and has been all over the big screen and tv and he is an really good actor.

  • Trace da Ace

    I low key feel the same...and that is my opinon

  • Kayke

    That's not a fact.....it's your opinion as you don't even know what the pay discrepancy is between Anthony and Traci. Where is this payroll file you have with people's income?

  • Renee26

    LMAO Chicago....I'm dead

  • Phillybruh

    It is a fact what they are paid was released months ago. She makes 80k per episode and he makes 100k. I don't think any of this is coming from her. This isn't that bad. I think this is a trick to get them both raises.

  • Renee26

    Tiffany is too rachet for that character

  • ???TheRider???

    She’s the reason I didn’t want to watch Blackish when I first heard about it. I didn’t care for her on Girlfriends and don’t think she’s that great if an actress. IMO she doesn’t deserve as much as Anthony, but her pay could be increased now that she’s won awards.

  • Kayke

    What a coincidence, her equal gender pay negotiation is made public while equal gender pay is a hot topic. Sounds good.

  • Renee26

    Cluching pearls.....horrible!!

  • yaaaaas

    you are correct, have tried to support both, and they are not good and/or funny in anything they do or have done. but she is the jooo wish and he travels in those circles. that's why they are successful. the road to winning in hollywood is jooo wish.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I keep. Telling y’all Kanye ain’t there

    They also need to give Jennifer Lewis a raise just because. She is hilarious to me.

  • You Could Never

    Its time for the former 2nd city to have a celeb baby named after it. There are a gazillion, Milan's, Brooklyn's, there are even two celeb kids named Bronx. Im here for Chicago.

  • NeverSurprised

    Yes they do, and stop screaming because you have no idea what you're talking about. I WORKED in the industry, so listen and learn

    Aziz Ansara beat Anderson for a GG for Best Actor in a Comedy for Master of None. Know what Aziz's ratings are -- NOTHING. The first-season show, with only 10 episodes, streams on Netflix where there are NO RATINGS. Moreover, the Netfix audience for his "little" show is MINISCULE compared to the huge NETWORK audience (and ADVERTISING DOLLARs) that Anderson brings to abc with blackish.

    Still, Aziz beat Anderson because that's the way the HFPA works. They give awards based on -- who sends them free screeners, who invites them to the best parties, which shows or movies are considered "artsy" (that's a big one for HFPA), which stars they are able to meet at private functions, who has the best smoked salmon at parties, who gives the best goodie bags at screenings.

    Your argument would hold more water if you were talking about the Emmys, but NOT THE GOLDEN GLOBES. It is not the same kind of award.

  • SumthinSweeter

    Valerie Harper was replaced as the STAR Of HER OWN show when she demanded more money. The show was even called Valerie. They killed off her character, changed the title, hired Sandy Duncan to replace her and carried on.

    Very few people in Hollywood are irreplaceable.

  • Trace da Ace

    Aint that what they call Black Chyna???? "Chy" or whatever?

  • You Could Never

    Sooooo you think white people are sitting in their homes deciding which channel to watch or not watch on the basis of whether someone who is NOT even in their house will call them "racist?" Do you really believe that?

    Maybe they can call the baby Chitown to avoid confusion or feelings of conflict.

    This woman is hideous! Age isn’t helping her at all! Look your mom is loaded. Ask her for some help. No way do you deserve to make what the lead actor/producer makes.

    Aunt Viv was replacable. She wasn't even the #3 on that show its Will, Uncle Phil, Carlton Jeffrey, Hillary, Ashley then Aunt Viv ( Janet Hubert) that's why she was replaced in the grand scheme of that show she wasn't that important. Tracee Ellis Ross is #2 followed by the young man that plays their older son.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    This is true. White stick together whether wrong or right. No morals. It truly shows their character.

    Now if this is accurate, that is way too low for Monique's stature. Clearly a byproduct of them knowing she's still got that bad tag on her due to that other s hit few years ago...

  • KcoolMuziq

    Tracee (whom I worked with on 'Girlfriends") wasn't what I expected her to be at all.

    Anthony(whom I worked with on 'Two Can Play That Game') Although I give props to his successful career & remarkable weight loss. He has come a long way. My experience with him was uncomfortable.

  • NeverSurprised

    Now THIS you are right about, and the way to fix that is to use the "Friends" negotiating model. When Friends was an unexpected hit, they all decided to negotiate as a BLOC to get raises above what their contracts called for. They made it clear that all SIX of them would walk if they didn't get the raises they wanted. They got the raises, which were exhorbitant.

  • free

    four

  • I want to be free

    Same thought I had. A boy, yes, a girl, nope.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    It comes out in his acting too. Anthony strikes me as uncle tomish and I've never even met the man. I don't know I've just never liked him as an actor.

  • NeverSurprised

    Mo'nque is going to keep taking negotiating advice from her husband until the two of them end up in the poor house. She has an Oscar, yet when was the last time she worked in a starring role? She needs a qualified manager whom she will LISTEN to.

    How long ago was that? when you worked in the industry? BTW, Master of None is a damn good show. I've watched every season. In NO WAY ON EARTH is Netflix ratings is miniscule in TODAY's world. Maybe 5 years, maybe 10. But that has changed.

    Netflix tiptoed into revealing audience measurement, with a ranking of which shows its subscribers "binge-race"
    fastest. Now, the Nielsen ratings service is offering its first data on
    how many people actually watch the streaming giant's original series in
    the first week following their release.

    Nielsen uses the same "people-meter" technology it employs for traditional TV ratings tomeasure Netflix's movies, original series and reruns of older series, all part of its $6 billion annual content budget.

    What Nielsen found for new seasons of three original series — House of Cards, Fuller House and Marvel's The Defenders — was a big crowd for a service that reaches only 59% of U.S. TV homes.

    The first episode of The Defenders averaged 6.1 million viewers in the week following its Aug. 18 release, while Cards and Fuller House each averaged 4.6 million viewers for season premieres in the weeks beginning May 30 and Sept. 22, respectively.

    Let's see if the so-called "liberals" in Hollywood attach this issue and Mo'nique's to thier campaign.

    One thing I've learned over the years, "liberals", like many people, only join the fight once its envouge or when it hits home.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Jenifer Lewis(whom I worked with in 'Strong Medicine') I've witnessed doing the most shocking things I EVER saw an actress do on a set.

  • Phillybruh

    Denise was replaceable on a Different World because she was not the most popular character on that show. By the end of the first season that was Whitley's show.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Trust and believe you will never get specifics from kcool. Especially since names are out there.

  • Applebootay

    Also, I do know what I'm talking about. You don't have to agree but I know what I'm talking about. I NEVER SAID that the award was based purely on ratings, more than making a point that it does matter.

  • You Could Never

    Popular or not that spin off was based on her.

  • Applebootay

    YES: Monique is now asking campaigning to boycott Netflix because they only offered her peanuts (500K) compared to Amy Shumer's 13 million which she renegotiated and got 21 million....and multi millions to others. I most certainly think they should have offered her some millions too....500K is a slap in the face...

  • klwbaby

    Five

  • Applebootay

    FACTS

  • Phillybruh

    It was built for her, true. But by the end of the first season the star of it was Whitley and Dwayne. Denise could have stayed if she wanted too but she wanted to go back to the Cosby show.

  • Phillybruh

    That is probably what this will turn into for them, He will get a raise and so will she.

  • Applebootay

    In comparison...that is very much blackballing....

  • Applebootay

    EXACTLY!

  • Kanyade

    I'm sorry, but Amy Schumer is a box-office draw, moreso than Monique.

    Had this offering occurred during Monique's Oscar-phase, then yes, she probably would've gotten more money.

  • Applebootay

    Yes, she was in a Christmas movie...but she's been blackballed

  • morenYAHdelsur

    They look ? awkward embracing like that.

  • Applebootay

    This is TV not a movie and They are Denzel and Samuel not Anthony. Unfair comparison.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whuuuut??? What show is she in with Amy Shumer? You may win that golden boy named Oscar but that damn sure doesn't mean you will get the benefits that usually come along with such a win. I think they are still punishing Monique...

  • Applebootay

    If you can't give deets, why do that?

  • Yes

    He’s embracing her like her drunk touchy feely uncle. I’m sure she was grossed out. I don’t see her being attracted to him at all.

  • klwbaby

    I thought Bill didn't like her because she got pregnant.

  • Majin Jew

    This. And I don't even think Schumer is funny, but there's no denying the contrast in where their careers are at currently.

  • Applebootay

    Me too! As I sit here typing from my university job on Lakeshore Drive, in my home town CHI-TOWN!!!

  • Phillybruh

    That's why he created A different world for her and she did Angel Heart. Which was terrible for her image.

  • I want to be free

    He tried to warn her against doing the movie Angel Heart. It had some graphic scene(s) in it. She got pregnant while she was back on the Cosby show.

  • Phillybruh

    And if she was the most popular character on that show they wouldn't have replaced her. They just need two grown people in the house to keep track of the 3 boys who were the most popular pieces of that show.

  • klwbaby

    OK, thanks for the clarification.

  • MsPam

    Well you better let them know because last time I checked they both thought they were comedians. AA does stand up comedy, TR always says she’s a comedian actress. Get of the main line with Jesus and give them a call, they would be shocked! ????

  • klwbaby

    I never watched that movie, have u?

  • NeverSurprised

    Doesn't matter. After the Friends cast demanded more money and got it by threatening a bloc walkout, Malik Yoba and Michael Delorenzo, the STARS of New York Undercover, decided to try the same thing. They demanded THREE times more money than they were getting, along with a bunch of other stuff. Know what happened?

    Dick Wolf sent out call sheets to every New York Casting agent and said he would replace BOTH of them. Wolf also called such public demands "a virus" in the entertainment industry. Universal also filed a $1.2-million suit against them alleging breach of contract, maintaining that the delays were costing the production company $60,000 per day.

    They went back to work a few days later with not ONE DIME of additional money.

    I'm telling you that I know how this industry works and you do NOT air these things publicly. You let your agent negotiate privately.

  • bashi

    So are you saying Denzel or Samuel cannot do TV show. My bad I should have written hypothetical

  • MsPam

    Because they don’t want to be actors or actresses! 1+1=2

  • Quitedeliteful

    She really doesn't need the money and with her mom being loaded she can make a big stink and sit out some episodes. The mortgage will still be paid and the fridge will stay full. And for the record you crazy talking 'bout sit down ugly!! (snicker...)

  • NeverSurprised

    $500k is a very small amount for a Netflix deal with an established artist. But she still should have taken it because she could have built on it. She is in rebuilding mode and she has to realize that. Her ego is keeping her financially stagnant.

  • Phillybruh

    Yeah it was a mess.

  • Kanyade

    i did not know about New York Undercover. thanks for the info.

  • Phillybruh

    Was NY Undercover making what friends was making in advertising dollars? I doubt it. Friends was making money for NBC hand over fists. Of course they were going to give that casts what they wanted. Same thing with Big Bang theory. If NY undercover was making for FOX or the production company what Friends was they would have given them what they wanted.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yuuup. Monique is lucky to be offered that much money. It may be a pittance in comparison to her white co-stars but Monique took a stance, has been blackballed because of that stance and hasn't been heard of again -- except for her podcasts with her husband complaining about how the industry treated her. She's gonna have to eat humble pie and build herself up again. Monique has got to learn to play chess instead of checkers...

  • Blue

    Hot tea! You can't just open that door without elaborating just a little bit ...

  • NeverSurprised

    Exactly. And every time they do a podcast and start pointing fingers at others, she digs her hole a little deeper. She HAS to start to climb out by focusing on her talent rather than her anger.

    The problem is that when you have people like Tyler Perry and Oprah unwilling to work with her, white producers feel free to also pass her over. That Netflix offer (assuming she actually got it) was a great offer at this stage. She should have grabbed it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I have a friend who loses touch with reality every now and then, has to check into a facility and take some strong medication. One time she told a story of the staff making all the men sit in chairs and had her kneel in front of each one of them -- and you know the rest... She said the staff stood around looking and laughing and threatened her saying if she told anyone she would never get to leave that place...

  • NeverSurprised

    All along you have been arguing that the TOP stars can't be replaced. You have not been arguing about ad revenue but rather about star status. I have given you multiple examples of how you are dead wrong:

    New York Undercover stars; Valerie Harper; Lisa Bonet on Different World; John Amos on Good Times; Susanne Sommers on Three's Company -- all lead stars or second leads. All replaced or threatened with replacement when they asked for more money or proved problematic to producers.

    Even Phylicia Rashad could have easily been replaced or written out of Cosby. If Tracy thinks she can't be replaced she has allowed her ego to cloud her reasoning abilities.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I love this death stare! LMBAOFFFF!!!!!!!!!!!

  • KcoolMuziq

    Actually TRacee revealed she didn’t even care much for Anthony before she was cast as his wife.

  • Stationarity

    I never understood this comment. Maybe my experiences are different but the white people at my job don’t stick together. They go to war ALL the time. At my sons school they don’t stick together. In college they didn’t stick together. What n politics they don’t stick together. It’s just when they need allies since it’s more of them they are more likely to Find an alliance with another white person to fight the other white person.

  • Sit down ugly

    Why didn’t she fight for the actresses to make more on Girlfriends or when the show was cancelled and moved? She also dissed the actress who played Toni Childs for knowing her worth and quitting the show. Don’t forget she said she grew up hating her perfect figure and beautiful head of hair, the only cute things on her. She’s picking a strange battle IMO. She does not deserve to make what Anthony Anderson makes. Period.

  • Sit down ugly

    I hope they all do.

  • NeverSurprised

    I was working in television distribution at the time and attended industry functions with the obnoxious Friends cast (egomaniacs), so I was curious to see what would happen when Malik and Michael made their play. Everybody watched closely. I actually knew NY casting agents who got Dick Wolf's call sheets for replacement actors. Wolf does NOT play.

    When you try these money moves, you REALLY have to know the personalities of the powerful people you are dealing with.

  • SpillyNillie

    SMH...picks up pen and pad...

    Ms. Ross the #ME TOO is for white women.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Don’t forget she said she grew up hating her perfect figure and beautiful head of hair,
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    She sounds dumb saying this. Her hair and figure really are her best attributes... Girlfriends was one of my favorite shows. I liked it much more than Blackish. It would have been nice if she had thrown her weight behind that show for sure...

  • Trey

    drop her...the show will go on

  • Yes

    I can see that. He has all those allegations against him too. He’s...creepy.

    Monique is a draw where?? Aint nobody checking for her...she better be happy she got offered that...try and see what BET offers you

  • Trey

    sticking "together" gets you nowhere

  • Blak

    She is EASILY replaceable. Stop using this as a bargaining chip

  • Smith Jane

    I think she was miscast to begin with

  • Smith Jane

    Well it damn sure ain’t talent or level of attractiveness

  • Smith Jane

    Lol @ faux Pucci train

  • Applebootay

    IMHO, I think she deserves way more than 500K based off her achievements and she will certainly bring the ratings worthy of that. I mean, they could've slid her 2-3 million. That ain't shat for Netflix.

  • Smith Jane

    Yep

  • Applebootay

    LOL..Ok, because I never considered them any where close to actual comedians more than "comedic actors".

  • Smith Jane

    Anthony is hilarious. He’s the only reason why I attempted to watch Blackish. The kids are annoying, especially Junior... the rest (except the grandparents) can be replaced imo

  • BadAss Will

    I don't blame her. Why not, compared to other shows with equal success white actresses make double to what she makes. She has the right to renegotiate her contract and usually actresses are replaceable but she is the reason most people watch.

  • BadAss Will

  • Solstice

    Hmm ? well yeah…it definitely shows in that photo IMO

  • Solstice

    Exactly! Monique is a has been at this point, Oscar or not ????? And I’m not boycotting anything. ?

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    But what is his pay as an actor? The show is a hit and I think after the second season, it's time to sit down and re-negotiate monies for future episodes, residuals, etc. No one should be on a hit show and feeling underpaid. Equal to AA, probably not, but if she's on a hit show and making less than the star of a none hit show, yeah, can we talk?

  • NeverSurprised

    "she is the reason most people watch"
    -------------------
    Where are the polls or studies that have reached this numerical conclusion?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I agree with you. To be clear, I wasn't saying that 500K was a lot, but for someone like her, I am surprised that she was even offered $500K. I think that this was an opportunity for her to build a relationship with Netflix and re-ignite her brand. But, I'm hesitant to tell anyone to accept less than what they think they deserve. Hopefully, she has other options or she is content with her current status in the industry.

  • NeverSurprised

    I can certainly think of MANY black actresses who could easily bring stronger acting chops to the role.

  • BadAss Will

    Bitch I polled my household. Now poll that homeless shelter you stay in. ???? Take yo ass to another comment troll. ??????

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Yes, just look at her face! She looks terribly uncomfortable.

  • Fire & Ice

    Exactly! She better be glad, that she wasn't completely black balled, after dragging Oprah.

  • Fire & Ice

    Her husband has been terrible for her career. He's going to end up pulling a stunt, like Mary J's ex.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Disgusting. Then I don't care lol.

  • Phillybruh

    Doesn't all tie in together? Focus groups, target audiences the commercials that play in between a television show. The Cosby show didn't and couldn't get rid of Denise because she appealed to the target audeince it was only in the last season did she lose that appeal, that brought in the money for NBC, Getting rid of Claire Huxtable is just silly talk. That show won't work without Tracy's character she provides a balance to Anthony Andersons character who if had to helm this show alone it wouldn't work. Sure she's replacable but what she brings to the show is not.

  • Li

    Usually what happens if the show is a hit like the Big Bang Theory or Friends, when contracts are up (they all signed about the same time), they negotiate as a TEAM and everybody gets the same damn amount. Google the Friends Salary.
    She shouldn't be paid the same as he because their time on air is the same time. He's the creator and the producers of the show, and I wonder if Anthony is happy with Tracee going public and complaining about pay. This should be private.

    Now there was a blind item that Insinuated that (maybe? Taraji P. Henson) was paid less than Terrence on Empire. Terrence is reportedly getting $125K an episode and she's getting $95K. And the blind item insinuated that she was being difficult one season because of the pay difference.
    Well, what these (black) actors and actresses have to realize is they are a team. You go in together and demand the same pay for everybody. No one is expendable.
    What the networks do is play one name against another.

  • Li

    How is it that Monique is doing a Netflix show? She's boycotted & blackballed everywhere. She should be glad they're giving her SOME money.

  • Li

    Well think about this: Tracee was RICH before she did Blackish. Her family (probably) has a family trust and Diana is rich beotch. She doesn't have to work another day ever. Tracee has built up her name, she can do a talk show, she can produce, so she really doesn't need Blackish. But she wouldn't want to leave under contentious reasons.
    I just don't think it was wise to go public about her salary and Anthony's salary.

  • Li

    Tracee probably is part of a trust fund.

  • Li

    She was lucky to get an "offer." I betcha one of her comedian friends like Chappelle or Hart put in a good word for her. I don't like her comedy.

  • imright

    i believe it !! i can imagine the horror stories ppl can tell about living in facilities

  • imright

    o wow that happened in that movie ? sick !!!

  • KcoolMuziq

    That'll NEVER work with black actors. Remember Fred 'Rerun"Berry & Ernest "Roger" Thomas from 'What's Happening"?
    They tried that in the 70's & ABC cancelled that show by the time they walked back to their cars. That show was still bringing in good ratings to.

  • Missy

    'Whats Happening' was my chit????

  • bigtyme

    HELL...Jill Marie Jones tried to play hardball on girlfriends and we never saw Toni Child's again

  • KcoolMuziq

    I actually saw her play a VERY convincing crack head in a movie a few years ago.

  • NeverSurprised

    I met Haywood Nelson at a party in Cannes one year. many years after the pay debacle, and he was STILL angry at Fred Berry for what he did. He said it was primarily Fred, not Ernest. Fred thought he was such a big star that the show couldnt continue without him, demanded a huge increase, and the network just pulled the plug on ALL of them. (Haywood was a sweetie pie, by the way.)

  • Dahl

    Perfect time to ask. This is a hot-button topic right now, she just may get it...

  • KcoolMuziq

    It was more than one stand off. Ernest joined with Fred on one of them. But Haywood is right! Fred is the sole reason why the plug was eventually pulled on ‘What’s Happening’.

    Fred even later pulled the same thing on the ‘ What’s Happening Now’reboot and demanded a whopping $1million increase! Of course he was let go from the show afterwards.

    Btw Haywood Nelson ended up going to college and getting his degree and became a very successful business man.

  • dontgetblocked

    Tracee is a mediocre comedic actress that lands roles because of her mother. Her last name is not even Ross. She added Ross to get jobs. If Anthony Anderson is an executive producer and he's known for more than just a cable series about women...HE DESERVES MORE MONEY! She better shut up before they kill her and replace her with a stepmom. Or they'll just hire another actress. She's easily replaceable.

    How many of yall remember New or Undercover. Top rated show when they started asking for more money they surprised everyone and took it off the air. We still mourn the show to this day. How many times I gotta tell yall that black woman are used to pimp other folks causes but it when comes to ours everyone jumps ship. How is #ME TOO supposed to be for women who have suffered sexual abuse but have yet to put pressure for Carolyn Bryant to go to jail for her fake sexual abuse allegations against Emmett Till. I agree with DL Hughley what are the statue of limitations for #ME TOO and can Sally Hemming join #ME TOO against Thomas Jefferson. Was she able to say "NO" and what would have happened to her had she said NO. Black women has never had the luxury to say no.

  • hottlanta

    She will be seen as a troublemaker like Stacy on fries at Church's. She is known as Diana's daughter but Diana has no power. She has all the money but doesn't have the clout to demand more money for her daughter. They will truly remind her of that.

    After all the bridges she has burned she's lucky she isn't performing for free. Some people...

    So Tracee has had a long career. She carried "Girlfriends" for several seasons and those girls made peanuts. Performers on black cast shows are always paid significantly less than stars on majority culture shows. Her career is at its peak (i.e. it's all downhill after "Blackish") now is the time to swing for the fences. Get your money, girl!

    TER is the reason Girlfriends got cancelled. She was jealous of Jill Marie Jones. She was jealous of all the attention and fandom Jill acquired. TER used her mother's influence to get JMJ off the show thinking she could carry the show and it soon came to an end. Everyone was watching "Toni Childs" character.

  • Allihave2say
  • Allihave2say

    She didn't really carry "Girlfriends" she was known better & had the lead role because of her mother and her bulging eyes. Fans gravitate to the story of Tony Childs as Joan was a stiff dry bore. When JMJ left most of the fans did too.

  • Allihave2say

    SAY THIS AGAIN AND AGAIN!

    I dont know where you getting your information from. But Tracee recently did an interview for glamor magazine and stated her mom always told them her money is her money and all of them better get out here and get jobs.

  • NicoleZee

    I never knew why Jill Marie Jones left, I thought she just wanted to do movies and wanted better roles. Jill is a better actress than Tracee IMO, and MUCH better looking, just being honest. Tracee is just too goofy for me and she seems like she presents herself as being nice but deep down inside she is vile and evil, especially if she got someone kicked off of a show just because they were popular and more well liked. Karma is the best bitch there ever will be, maybe that's why Tracee is alone and childless even though she tries to pretend she is content with that. The reality is that no one probably wants her if she is a vile evil person. Sad.

  • NicoleZee

    No one is!

  • Allihave2say

    Tracee looks like a wide wild eyed giraffe and tries to capitalize on looking the most like Diana Ross. Her last name isn't even Ross. I remember back in the day she seemed to always be trying to upstage Diana's daughter by Berry Gordy. Also remember stories of Diana favoring her biracial kids over Rhonda.

  • NicoleZee

    She doesn't deserve shit from what I've heard people say about her. Black-ish is very shitty now, it's only a matter of time before it gets canceled. I don't see it lasting that many more seasons. The only ones on the show that can act are Anthony Anderson, Laurence Fishbourne, Jenifer Williams, and the adorable girl twin, Marsai Martin.

  • NicoleZee

    I've always heard that too. What I don't understand is why Diana Ross had a child that she knew she didn't want. If she didn't care for black men or for having a child with two black parents then why did she go through the trouble of sleeping with Berry Gordy??? I never understood that. And to mistreat a child because of how they look or because you hate their other parent is sick, vile, and evil. I swear most sicko women with kids shouldn't have ability to breed!!! Sorry not sorry, all of Diana's kids are strange looking. She has huge eyes, which I always thought was a symptom of a thyroid problem.

  • NicoleZee

    Dang, you really are blessed to be able to afford that high rent in New York! My son's physical therapist took her family to New York and her son wanted to move there.

  • dontgetblocked

    She slept with Berry Gordy to become the star of the Supremes.

  • Allihave2say

    Diane used her feminine wilds to advance her career above her group members. The pregnancy didn't keep Berry so she married the white man while still pregnant.

  • Lady M

    Anthonty Anderson can't act. He plays the exact same character in EVERY movie or show he's in. Over-the-top, loud and irrational. Traci's is much more diverse. But that ain' none o' my business.

  • Lady M

    Not to take anything away from Jill's acting but if Jill is better than Traci - where is she now? What's the last major role she has had. Traci has been the only one to secure consistent work in mainstream shows since "Girlfriends" wrapped years ago. It's said that Jill left the show because she thought she deserved more pay. Never heard it had anything to do with Traci. And I never watched for Jill's character Toni. I watched in spite of that selfish, self-absorbed, annoying character.

  • Lady M

    They all alone and childless. None of them from Girlfriends are married nor do any of them have kids except for Golden who has a daughter. #WhatKarma $80,000 per episode is karma? Y'all really be reaching.

But I love Grown-ish, I think they going get atleast 3-4 seasons.

  • Allihave2say

    Everyone identified with whom they found to be most like them. My friends likened me to be Joan. However Toni Childs, her baby and new white husband became a central point of the show hence why JMJ thought she should earn more pay.

    There are many talented actors and actresses who don't further their career for their own reasons and circumstances. It doesn't make them less talented. Tracee who's last name isn't Ross has used her mother's fame and connection to continue to get roles. She could have easily used her birth name if she wanted to make it on her own. Tracee gets roles but every show she is on gets cancelled so that doesn't say much about her presence or perhaps it does. Her acting is very mediocre. Her looks with the bug eyes and giraffe silhouette is not attractive.

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    Lol people are upset that someone uses her mother's success to get ahead? Isn't that the whole point of making something significant out of your life, to pave the way for your kids? Isn't that how and why whyt kids have all these advantages before ever being born??

  • Layah Jhene

    Lol she's on Ash vs Evil Dead Show

  • WiseGui

    Aside from his role as executive producer, he is the LEAD ACTOR and narrates the entire show. That alone warrants his higher salary. He obviously spends more hours in the studio and on set because his scope of work is more than hers as a supporting role.

    She’s trying it. Equal pay needs to make sense and have some hard data to back it up.
