Keke Palmer set to become Broadway’s first black Cinderella


Actress Keke Palmer will be making history when she takes the Broadway stage in the title role of “Rogers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.” Palmer, the first black actress to play the role on Broadway, will don the glass slippers, crafted by designer Stuart Weitzman, Sept. 9.

Meanwhile in June, she became the youngest talk show host ever at the age of 20 when Just Keke launched on the BET network.  So far, her biggest interview has been with her pal Karrueche Tran - Chris Brown’s now ex-girlfriend who burst into tears when discussing how Rihanna has always been the third person in their relationship.
