Beautiful Family

I absolutely LOVE both of these actors! Every since seeing them on the tv series of Soul Food they've been 2 of my favorite in not just "Black Hollywood", but Hollywood period.

They make a beautiful couple and as you can see make beautiful babies too!;o).

Mickey Mouse

I am a huge fan of art! A lot of people may not know this about me, but the ones that do its because they actually take the time to really get to know me and/or have the same interests as me. I've always been a fan of being different and not following the crowd. And that's in all aspects of life.

Came across these pictures and thought they were hot! What a fly way to turn a national childhood figure into something totally different than what he's known for? Tell me what yall think?

Nu Pop Movement Watch Launch

Music mogul Jermaine Dupri launched his new line of affordable watches at WISH in Atlanta and celebrity photographer Prince WIlliams of was there to capture all the excitement.

Other celebs in the house included R&B Diva Monica, rapper Big Boi, former America's Top Model finalist Eva tha Diva and her fiancee actor Lance Gross, socialite Teyana Taylor , and socialite Sarah Chapman (1 of 3 of Diddy's babymamas).

The line of affordable watches called Nu Pop Movement range in price from $95 to $145. Hmmm pricing isn't too bad at all. So what do ya'll think about JD's new watch line?

Shaunie Oneal Signing Those Papers

The petition, citing irreconcilable differences as grounds for the split, was entered in the Los Angeles County Superior Court, seeking spousal support for Shaunie O'Neal and custody of the couple's four children, who range in age from three to nine years-old.

Celebrity news website said the O'Neal family had been living in Florida. But Shaunie O'Neal recently pulled the children out of school in that state and moved with them back to Los Angeles, where courts tend to be more generous in awarding child and spousal support, TMZ reported.

Shaquille O'Neal previously filed for divorce in 2007, but the couple was reported to have reconciled. They were married in December 2002.

Mrs O'Neal's petition this week lists the date of their latest separation as Monday and says she intends to amend her filing to seek a divorce.

The 7-foot 1-inch athlete, widely known as "Shaq," began his pro career with the Orlando Magic and later helped lead the Los Angeles Lakers to three consecutive NBA championships, in 2000, 2001 and 2002, before he was traded to the Miami Heat in 2004.

After winning a fourth championship in Miami in 2006, Shaq was traded to the Phoenix Suns, then traded again during the latest off-season to the Cleveland Cavaliers, where he now is playing alongside LeBron James.

The 15-time All-Star center and future Hall of Famer also has developed a successful media career, currently starring in an ABC television reality show called "Shaq Vs.," in which he competes against athletes in other sports.

To think he was creeping with another NBA players fiancée and mother of his children?! Goes to show you can have all the $$$ in the world but it still won't make you happy or satisfied. My heart goes out to Gilbert Arenas as well as Shaunie and the 7 kids who are in the middle of this whole mess.

I will admit, Shaunie was smart as hell filing in California! That was a smart bish move!! And the "Leaking" of the emails between Shaq and Laura Govan (Gilbert Arenas fiancée and mother to his 2 kids one on the way) was like icing on the cake!!

This whole situation is just sad and despicable! Shaunie has always been a sweet business minded woman who made her own way and wasn't just considered and "NBA Wife". I just pray everything is over and done with as soon as possible!

Happy Halloween From The Obama Family

POTUS and FLOTUS greet some of the 2,600 children and adults invited to trick-or-treat at the White House for Halloween. Highlights: FLOTUS as Cat Woman, Gibbs as Darth Vader, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice as Goofy.

The north front of the White House was tinted orange and bedecked for Halloween as children began filing in, we're told at 5 p.m. The pool was escorted up at about 6:15 p.m. Among the sights and sounds: Three giant pumpkins, each weighing about 1,000 pounds (grown in Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Wisconsin). "Skeleton" brass players and kettle drummers in black leotards. Red and yellow butterflies inside giant bubbles. Two giant orange and black eyes peering out from first-floor windows. A giant black spider and cobwebs hanging over the North Portico. Walking "trees" on stilts. Star Wars and other characters handing out candy. Hundreds of pumpkins and a few scarecrows. A "scuba diver" replete with bubbles. And much more. Most of the characters came from theatrical groups, including the Red Moon Theater in Chicago and D.C. companies.

POTUS, FLOTUS and First Grandmother Marian Robinson, all smiling broadly, handed out treats for about 30 minutes from 6:30 to 7 p.m. on the front steps. First, the treats: White House M&Ms, a sweet dough butter cookie from the White House pastry shop and, of course, some dried fruit (cherries, apricots, pears, apples and papayas). POTUS was in casual slacks, checked shirt and black sweater. FLOTUS, more in the spirit, had an orange-and-black leopard-type top and cat ears (the Cat Woman), black eye shadow, her hair in a bun and lots of gold bracelets on one arm. The three of them were continuously handed fresh baskets of the wrapped-in-plastic treats to dole out by staff in chef's hats. Children and parents who arrived earlier or later didn't get their treats from the First Family, but from other characters.

The children, ages 6 to 14 (but some obviously with younger brothers and sisters), came from 11 area schools -- five in the District, three in Maryland and three in Virginia (see list below) -- all chosen by the Department of Education. There were supposed to be about 2,000 children. Final count, according to First Lady's staff, was 2,600 children and adults. At one point, a toddler in his father's arms burst into tears upon seeing the president. Most of those exiting the line said the president simply said "Happy Halloween" as they passed. The event was run by the National Park Foundation, which provided each child with a Junior Ranger activity book..

Then, inside: A couple hundred military families, chosen by each service, and White House staffers and their children roamed the first floor of the White House as an old-fashioned turntable played albums -- yes, albums. POTUS and FLOTUS came into the East Room at 7:12 p.m. to greet some of them personally. Included: Robert Gibbs dressed as Darth Vader, with son Ethan; Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, dressed as Goofy (the president jokingly asked cameras not to take her photo). The First Couple handed out the same treats that went to those passing by outside; at one point the president squatted down to talk to some of the children, seated on the floor.

As the pool was being ushered out, the president spoke briefly. He told the military families "We are so grateful to you," especially those who are separated from family members. He thanked staffers and their children, at which point FLOTUS piped in, "They're so cute!"

"They're adorable," POTUS said, "as is, by the way, my wife -- a very nice-looking Cat Woman."

The president told everyone to enjoy the party and the characters but warned, "Some of them are pretty big and scary." He noted that younger daughter Sasha "doesn't like big furry things." (Neither Obama offspring was seen, but we're told they were there.)
