Taraji Henson stopped by the Wendy Williams Show last week to talk about her new movie, “Think Like A Man,” and motherhood. When asked about her decision to buy her 17-year-old son Marcel a Honda Civic Hybrid Henson said, “I don’t spoil my son. He earned it.”

Taraji became a single mother after  Marcel’s father was murdered 8 years ago. “I was so in love,” Henson says, “He was my high school sweet heart and we were together for 8 years. [Marcel] looks just like his father.”

Although boys are sometimes completely dependent on mom, Marcel has developed a balance between family love and independence. “He loves me to death, but I raised an independent young man, but I’m very hands-on,” Taraji states.

Henson recently discussed the late Trayvon Martin with  CBS This Morning saying, “I cannot think about the mother, Sybrina, and what she could be going through. (Trayvon) should be doing exactly what my son is doing right now, figuring out where he’s going to college, waiting for acceptance letters, you know, going on to the next phase of his life. But it was stolen from him.”

Scandal star Columbus Short is an eco-friendly father and actor and who recently revealed his love for environmentally safe products. “I use a lot of hemp products — lotion and shampoo and detergents — and biodegradable plates and cups. [My family and I are]  trying to do as much as we can. We need everybody doing it,” Short said in an interview with MNN.

In trying to do as much as they can, Columbus and his wife Tanee have enrolled their 7-year-old son in an eco-conscious school that teaches meaningful lessons about Earth. Columbus says that their young lad has plans to “change the world” one day.

As for his role as Harrison Wright on the ABC series Scandal, Short says that “this is the best thing that’s happened to me in my career….. It’s such an insider show in a way and we can bring those stories to life.”

The Shorts are also proud parents of a baby girl.
