Published September 22, 2017

It's been a dramatic week for celebrities. From Issa Rae's unapologetic love for her Black peers to Karrueche Tran speaking out about her decision to legally keep Chris Brown away from her.

See what some of your favorite famous faces had to say below:

  1. Karrueche Tran talks filing the restraining order against Chris for her own safety:

    "It just got to a point where it's just like, I can’t. Just to make sure. And I live in L.A. I'm from L.A. So I move around how I want to move, you know what I'm saying? So that's what I felt like I needed."

  2. Here’s what Keyshia Cole told her ex before he told her he’s dating a friend:

    "Sometimes, you just have to take it slow, you know?"

  3. Kendall Jenner comes to Kylie’s defense in new interview:

    "My little sister has an insane business and anyone who says they don't want their kid to be like that, and have an insane business at 19, and literally be so successful is insane to me.”

  4. Gina Torres opens up about the ending of her and Laurence Fishburne’s marriage:

    "With heavy hearts, Laurence and I quietly separated and began the dissolution of our marriage in the early fall of last year. There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected."

  5. Here’s Kenya’s response to Kim Zolciak dissing her marriage:

    "Worry about pimping your daughter out, b***h."

  6. Shonda Rhimes has some honest thoughts about all of these “firsts” at the Emmys:

    "It's embarrassing, frankly. To me, it feels embarrassing that we are still in a place in which we still have to note these moments... I'm hoping that it's not a trend. I'm hoping that people don't feel satisfied because they saw a lot of people win, and then think that we're done."

  7. Michael K. Williams thinks everyone should give Sean Spicer a break:

    "First of all, everybody deserves a second chance. Everybody. Who am I to say don't give somebody a second chance? They want a second chance, everybody deserves a second chance. I enjoyed his performance last night on the Emmys."

  8. See Sterling Brown’s adorable message to his wife during his big win:

    “Susan Kelechi Watson, It's a pleasure to rep black love with you, sista. Let’s keep doing it like Martin and Gina."

  9. Lena Waithe shouted out the LGBT community in her amazing Emmys speech:

    “I see each and every one of you. The things that make us different, those are our super powers. Every day when you walk out the door and put on your imaginary cape and go out there and conquer the world because the world would not be as beautiful as it is if we weren't in it.”

  10. Donald Glover hilariously thanks Trump for his Emmy win:

    "I'm so happy. Thank you so much! This is nuts. I really want to thank the Academy again — everybody in here, you guys, I love you. I want to thank my mom and my dad again. I want to thank the city of Atlanta. I want to thank Trump for making Black people number one on the most oppressed list. He's the reason I'm probably up here."

  11. And here’s another reason to love Issa Rae:

    "I'm rooting for everybody Black. I am!"
