Last night the 46th Annual NAACP Image Awards were held in Pasadena last night. The NAACP Image Awards recognize African American achievements in entertainment. Now that more shows with African American casts are becoming mainstream, more of the faces on the red carpet are looking pretty familiar! ‘Selma,’ ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ and ‘Black-ish’ won big last night, as well as Taraji P. Henson. ‘Scandal’ star Kerry Washington, along with Taraji, were the ladies in red on the red carpet last night. We have a TON of red carpet pictures as well as the list of major winners after the break! RELATED: Kerry Washington’s InStyle cover becomes controversial.
First Tamera Mowry announced her baby news (she’s pregnant with baby #2) on ‘The Real,’ and now, co-host Adrienne Bailon has a big announcement of her own. She’s engaged! Watch her announcement below. RELATED: Adrienne Bailon defends herself against the Kardashian backlash.
TAO Nightclub is always one of the places to be if you’re ready to party! LA Clippers’ point guard Chris Paul (a.k.a. CP3) started off the evening at TAO Asian Bistro with his wife, Jada Paul, his brother CJ, and friends. Then they went upstairs to TAO Nightclub, which is where Jermaine Dupri came over to mingle as CP3 played host for the evening. RELATED: Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri split.
New Yorkers aren’t known for being all that… social with strangers. They may be jammed in together in subways and on crowded streets, but they still aren’t all that friendly. Performance artist Bettina Banayan decided to see if she could make New Yorkers more friendly on the subway. So she got on the subway, iced a cake, and then sliced and served it to her fellow commuters. Before you knew it, people were eating cake and chatting with each other. Maybe Marie Antoinette was onto something with her “Let them eat cake” edict- LOL.
I love how the people sitting next to her were eyeing her when she started icing the cake. You could tell, they were like, “What in the world is this?” But you have to give Bettina credit: a lot of people’s days got off to a sweeter start, thanks to her. Get a cup of coffee or tea before you settle in to watch this: it’s a little over 11 minutes long, but it’s fun to watch!
There was more than fashion to talk about at The Blonds Fashion Show at NYFW. Lil Kim made an announcement herself just with her appearance. She’s rocking a stylish baby bump! Lil Kim is pregnant with her first child. She spoke with Us Weekly about her news, although she’s keeping the identity of her baby’s father private.
I’m so excited! I’m a few months along, I can’t wait to be a mom!”
Lil Kim made the formal announcement at the after-party (to no one’s surprise at that point, I’m guessing- LOL).
I’m a mom, but I can turn it up a little!”
Don’t expect the rapper to fade out of the limelight, however.
I’m still going to work. I’m still going to be hardcore. The baby has made me even more of a beast!”
Lil Kim made sure to mention the Notorious B.I.G. (she was involved with him romantically although he was married to Faith Evans at the time of his death).
It’s also going to be Biggie’s birthday and the anniversary of his death soon so we [as she points to her belly] love you.”
Talk about an exciting time. Congratulations!
