Mary Louise Parker joins the crusade to save an African. I shouldn’t be so cynical, what’s wrong with celebrities adopting children of third world countries as if they were the new accessories of the season. I should look at the bottom line, and see the wonderful things these celebrities are doing. Maybe I don’t have a problem with white celebrities adopting children of color, maybe I have a problem with black celebrities not adopting any. I know there are kids here that need a home, too, but why do black celebrities shy away from adopting African children. Or maybe I’m just upset because I can’t find out what country this child is from. It just says Africa, like it’s one big country or something. Overall I think it’s a good thing, I just question the motives behind the trend. We’ll see how it works out in 10 years or so, when Mommy Dearest the sequel is made.
Melissa Ford is revealing her body once again for Black Men Magazine. I really don’t understand the video girl “modeling”, maybe in my younger years I could, but after a certain age don’t you move past that. Is it just another avenue to make easy money, or do some women like being objectified? Anyway here are some of the more conservative pictures from the spread, trust me there aren’t many.
Lisa Raye knows how to throw a party, and for her 40th she brought the funk to Beverly Hills. Eurweb describes the Studio 40 party as non-stop dancing with plenty of fun:
Duane Martin and Tisha Campbell Martin emceed the star-studded affair which included “old school” entertainment from Evelyn “Champagne” King and The Whispers. Both acts did not disappoint. They sang and sweated, we danced and sweated.
Let’s just say this was one of those parties where, if you came to get wet from sweat, you were in the place to be. It was definitely on and popping. After the live music portion and the Happy Birthday greetings, the DJ and hype man took over spinning serious hardcore old school funk.
Needless to say it was at that point that the beautiful birthday gal herself took over the dance floor and handled her business to the with the bad boy himself, Bobby Brown, while her husband, the honorable Michael Misick looked on with approval and appreciation. We might also add that LisaRaye is one incredible boogie woman.
