Henson, Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Terrence J of "106 & Park" and Kevin Hart. According to a release, production is underway and the rom-com is set to debut April 6.

Former flames Rihanna and Chris Brown had fans all a-Twitter when the two began following each other on the social networking site over the weekend.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, devotees of the stars noticed on Saturday that Brown—who assaulted Rihanna on the night of the 2009 Grammys and is currently forbidden from annoying, harassing or stalking his ex-girlfriend—had begun tracking the songbird's tweets, and shortly afterward, she began following his.
"I never thought you would go back to him! You better not, it's your life but you do have ppl that look up to you. e.g young girls," user iStan4Rihanna wrote to Rihanna, to which the singer replied, "It's f-- Twitter, not the [altar]! Calm down."

Looks like beleaguered singer Chris Brown may have an unlikely ally.
Radar Online reports that Rosie O'Donnell took a few minutes Monday during her Sirius XM radio show, Rosie Radio, to defend the singer in the wake of a 2009 assault on then girlfriend Rihanna and a more recent outburst at the "Good Morning America" studios after an appearance.
"I just don't know why this kid seems to be held to a different standard than anyone else," O'Donnell said during Monday's broadcast.

Chris Brown is set to perform on "Dancing With the Stars" tonight, just one week after his off-camera outburst at "Good Morning America."
As we all know by now, Brown stormily departed the set after anchor Robin Roberts questioned him about his 2009 assault case involving Rihanna, and a window in his dressing room was found smashed.
While some fans aren't happy that the star is appearing on the family friendly show, the show's host, Tom Bergeron, doesn't sound eager to talk to Brown either.
