Vivica A. Fox Angers Fans By Claiming Her Strip Show Isn't For Gays
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Just two days after the premiere of her new reality series, Vivica A. Fox is courting controversy.  Last year, the 52-year-old actress launched an all-male, all-black “Magic Mike”-style exotic dance revue called “Black Magic” in Las Vegas.

Huffington Post - 8 months
Vivica A. Fox said there was once a time she admired Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, but admits that those days are long gone.  The actress and former "Celebrity Apprentice" contestant told Access Hollywood on Tuesday that she credited much of her past appreciation of Trump to the business savvy he exemplified on the show as her boss. However, after witnessing the racist rhetoric and other abhorrent comments he has made throughout his campaign, Fox believes that Trump is in no way suited for the presidency.  "He doesn't want to make America great again. He wants to take America backwards, in my opinion," Fox told the show's hosts.  Fox, who appeared on season 14 of "Celebrity Apprentice," said Trump has tapped into peoples fears and created division in ways she thinks are intolerable.
