Halle Berry showed off her dance skills, or should we say shimmy skills, as she got a bit low and wiggled to the Hurricane Chris dance track “She’s Fine (Halle Berry Remix)” on Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show.

An homage to Berry’s hotness, “She’s Fine” has inspired fans across the country to upload their own dance videos to YouTube, and talk show host Ellen Degeneres encouraged Berry to shake a tail feather to her tribute song.

While the dance craze is hardly of “Single Ladies” proportions, it reminds us of the Soulja Boy “Superman” phenomena.

Halle Berry‘s pride and joy, daugther Nahla Ariela Aubry, is one year old!

It was only in February that the Oscar-winning actress told Essence magazine, “As a woman, I thought it was all about work and accomplishments. Then this little baby comes along and says that it’s not about that.”

Berry is also starring in the film adaptation of the novel Nappily Ever After, which she’ll go bald for. But is mainly doing it for Nahla’s seal of approval.

“I don’t want my daughter to look back at my work and think, ‘Mom sold out,’ ” she said. “I want to leave a legacy that she can be proud of.”

It’s taken two long years for Halle Berry to mix up a “yummy” and “very sensual” fragrance with perfume house Coty.

The Oscar-winning stunner conjured up a personal scent that is “very much reflective of the outdoors” using such earthly delights as fig, mimosa, olibanum (a close relative of Frankincense) and sandalwood.

Coty’s other famous perfumologists are Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss, David and Victoria Beckham, Gwen Stefani, Celine Dion and Tim McGraw.

At 42 and now a new mom, Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry seems like a far-fetched choice as Esquire‘s Sexiest Woman Alive. Recreating President Bill Clinton’s 2000 cover, Berry appears radiant in her latest honor.

“I’ve been in the business for more than twenty years, and you decide now, at this particular time, that I’m the sexiest woman alive?” Berry says in the magazine. “Come on. I mean, you couldn’t go with the Bond-girl year?”

Listen up folks! The Queen of Soul has reached down into her bosom, pulled out her wish list of actors to star in a film version of her autobiography “Aretha: From These roots,” and it’s nothing short of award-winning!

In a written press release Franklin says she would love, none other than, Academy Award winners Halle Berry to play a younger version of herself, Denzel Washington to portray her father, Reverend C.L. Franklin, and Academy Award nominee Terence Howard to play some hazel-eyed, pimp-suited, smooth guy -no wait, that was every other film he’s been in – to play Smokey Robinson.

Blindie cannot wait to see Ms. Berry get down and dirty to some down south rhythm and blues!

Forget the praise given to Tarantino for rebooting and reaffirming the careers of Bruce Willis, Travolta, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson and others. Give that crown to Lee Daniels, for stripping away the stardust personas of Mariah Carey, Lenny Kravitz and Mo’Nique to reveal believable and very real working class New Yorkers in Precious, the tour-de-force film adaptation of the novel Push.

Daniels not only showcases the talent of a most unlikely ensemble cast, he succeeds in pushing these actors to the forefront of the Awards season competition. They’ve gone from being the biggest long shots for dramatic roles to possible award contenders, which makes the vision and talent of Lee Daniels’ direction one to watch during award season as well.

Newcomer Gabourey “Gabby” Sidibe, a Harlem raised 26-year-old has already won a New Hollywood Award on Monday in Los Angeles and Daniels received the Breakthrough Director Award.

Paula Patton turns out a performance Blindie always knew she was capable of giving if ever the right script came along. She plays her role with such delicacy and care that we can’t help but see the forming stages of the motherly adoption we all hoped would eventually develop between her and Precious.

The tension in Lee Daniels’ film Precious is as gripping as any Hollywood Thriller. There are no chase scenes, no explosive helicopters and no espionage wordplay. There is however the poetic hard-edge slang of the late eighties, brought to you in hues of grey and dark-brown depictions of Harlem circa 1987, when crack cocaine was in full-effect.

Clairece “Precious” Jones chooses to live in her head. In her dreams she’s locking lips with her curly-haired light skinned boyfriend, and posing for the flashing bulbs of fashion photographers. Already, Daniels’ showing us that this girl dreams big, even if she dreams to drown out the onslaught of abuse from her mother, played to perfection by Mo’Nique, in the year’s most head-spinning drama boot-camp makeover.

Precious opens in theaters nationwide on Friday, and if Oprah’s endorsement of Halle Berry’s performance in “Monster’s Ball” was any indication, her late addition to the film as one of the executive producers alongside Tyler Perry, is definitely serving as a marketing goad, pushing Precious to the top of both the critics list and (fingers-crossed) the Oscar nom list. O! The power of Oprah.

Blindie will be watching and reporting on the trajectory of Precious.
