    No more drama? Not unless it's a TV drama. Singer Mary J. Blige, who has an album and song called "No More Drama," will play the wife of slain civil rights figure Malcolm X in a small screen drama called Parallel Lives. Blige will play Betty Shabazz, telling WENN, "It's about the lives of Coretta Scott King and Betty Shabazz, the women in Malcolm X's and Martin Luther King's life. I'm playing Betty and prepping for that now. I've been studying her online and watching her interviews."

    Filming will begin this fall.
