    "I done watched that clip of Lena Waithe and Halle Berry bout fiftylem times, and I’ams."

    So ICYMI, TV and movie star/screenwriter/producer Lena Waithe guest-hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night and absolutely CRUSHED IT!!!

    Jimmy was busy hosting the All in the Family and The Jeffersons reboot special that same night.

    But Lena had never hosted a late-night show and was understandably nervous about the whole thing. So, to help her out, JKL! legend Guillermo pushed the "Berry Button"...

    "You push it when you need something berry important," he explained.

    ...And out came Halle Berry!!!

    Lena asked the Hollywood icon for some words of "inspiration," like that moving speech she delivered when she won an Oscar for Best Actress in 2002, and Halle happily obliged:

    "Lena, I know you. We’ve worked together, so I know that you are a force of nature," Halle said. The two powerhouses serve as executive producers of the hit BET series Boomerang, and have openly supported and celebrated one another professionally in recent years.

    "You are a beautiful African American queen," she continued. "And tonight you are a writer, an actor, a producer and tonight you are a late night comedian and you’re about to slay."

    Then she sealed the deal with a big ol' juicy kiss!!!

    If you close your eyes and listen closely, you can hear me screaming all the way in NYC. Someone get MTV folks on the line, cuz they just won Best On-Screen Kiss of the century!!!

    So yeah, that tiny earthquake you felt earlier this week??? Prolly caused by that epic smooch.

    Still shooketh @LenaWaithe kissed Halle Berry. I know they both smelled good asf too. 😭💞

    I mean, it happened Wednesday and people are STILL watching it!!!

    I done watched that clip of Lena Waithe & Halle Berry bout fiftylem times and I’ams.

    It is truly the gift that keeps on giving!!!

    @LenaWaithe @halleberry @JimmyKimmelLive Me: How many times have I watched this clip already? Also me:

    And if you're jealous of Halle, of Lena, or both of these African-American queens, then you're mos def NOT alone.

    Halle Berry kissed @LenaWaithe and honestly I’m jealous of both of them.

    BTW, for those y'all wondering how Alana felt (she's the President of Production and Development at Outlier Society and Lena's fiancé), apparently she gave Lena "a pass."
