Old School Friday: Singers We Want To Be Like…

Posted by on May 1, 2008 in Videos | 22 comments

I had a hard time with this theme, because I do like being myself, but growing up there is one woman I just admired so much although she was a fictional character, she embodies every aspect of a whole woman. I admire this woman on and off the small screen, and her spirit is larger than life…This is one of my favorites…

This second video comes from one of my favorite movies from childhood. It only came on TV once, but I loved this movie so much I wore out the VHS. The name of it was Polly, and it was Directed by Debbie Allen. The movie Polly has so many women in it to admire, including Vanessa Bell Calloway, who is not only a great dancer, but also a great singer. Here’s to poise, spirit, and class.

What? Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon Already Married!

This gets stranger by the moment, if it wasn’t for the album coming out, I might believe this is legit, but it must be a publicity stunt. If not, Mariah may be headed for meltdown #2. According to several new outlets, Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey got married in the Bahamas on Wednesday in an “impulsive”, yet private ceremony. I won’t believe it until it’s a legal civil union, with a marriage certificate and the judge’s signature. Congrats, I think! Thanks Marvalus for the tip. [Source]…

MrsGrapevine Love The Kids…Kim Porter & Twins Cover Jet Magazine

Posted by on May 1, 2008 in Celebrity Kids, Celebrity Magazine, Magazine Covers | 3 comments

Kim Porter the on and off, but mostly on again girlfriend of Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is on the cover of Jet with their beautiful twin daughters, D’ Lila and Jesse. Part of me says this woman is crazy, and the other part of  me says this woman is rich. Love and money will make you do some crazy things. However, these babies are so cute and I know we will see them grow into beautiful teens, and let’s just hope they will be famous for their good behavior, and not infamous for their bad.
