New Couple Alert: Taraji P. Henson and Sanaa Lathan

A couple of weeks ago I received an email about Oscar nominee Taraji P. Henson and actress Sanaa Lathan.

The reader wrote something about Sanaa batting for the other team after Denzel Washington went back to his wife. Supposedly, Sanaa has not looked at another man since.

Anyway, I didn’t believe the email — even after seeing this picture of Sanaa embracing Taraji.

But after seeing these pictures from last night’s Lakers game, now I do believe. I like these two women together. Notice how Taraji is looking at Sanaa in the top pic? That’s love right there. They even look like they’re having a lover’s spat.

Isn’t black love beautiful?

Now I could be wrong about them being a couple — and if so, I humbly apologize in advance. But I don’t think I’m wrong. :)

    Damn, can this be two friends hanging out. I hang out with my homegirls often, not because I am gay, but because I don’t currently have a man and they don’t either at the moment. Does that make one gay?

  • Amulet

    They could be gay. Oh well.

  • KAT

    lawd sandra……..i know news is slow, but here you go reaching again! i accept your apology in advance.

  • http://smokiesays.blogspot.com/ Smokie

    [Insert HUGE eye roll.]

    Ok Sandra, whatever. LOL Now here you are… batting, balling, and runing for the other team …. and you can’t even recognize that their body language does NOT say “couple”…? It just says “homegirls”. Geez.

  • bk2atl

    Sandra, you are funny, but I guess a girl can dream right? LOL

  • LilMissRed

    Un Un.. I’m not buying this one. They look like they’re just chillin @ the game and talking about who didnt return their call or what theyve gotta do tomorrow and blah blah blah.. just the normal girls hanging out and chattin it up. A couple??? I doubt it.. I need more proof!

  • DivaMama

    The top pic looks like Taraji is tired to me. I don’t see love there.

    This post is funny to me, lol!

  • keely107

    No, THAT is a clique, those are friends.

  • MissGauzzz

    Sorry, San..I accept your apology in advance too..not buying the gay thing and definitely not buying the Dezel Washington thing either! That rumor is so tired and played! Does anybody have any proof they were kickin’ it together??!! (Denzy and Sanaa??) Just curious!

    So Smokie you’re saying you would take a picture hugged up on a woman like that other pic of them together? If so, can you send me the picture?

  • iscream

    Can any black person do their thing and not get torn down by you?

    Gay? Tarji clearly said last week that Sannaa was her close friend. Said that Sanaa is the one who called her up to go celebrate her Oscar nod.

    The way you’ve been drooling over Jeezy (hate that name what is that suppose to mean) I think you might be straight. :P

  • DivaMama

    Sandra,

    I have a picture like that with my girl, and we are JUST FRIENDS. AND I took it recently. I was happy to see her because I haven’t seen her in a long time Does that make me her lover?

  • Charles

    YES SANDRA BLACK LOVE is beautiful

    Sandra has all the scoops

    SANDRA

    What do you think of michelle obama laying the smack downe on BEYAKI????

    LilMissRed Says:

    Un Un.. I’m not buying this one.

    *************************************************

    I don’t expect you to see what I see unless you’re a lesbun. That’s why I’m pointing out the obvious. So have you taken a pic leaning into your girlfriend with her arms wrapped around you? If so can you send it to me?

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    DivaMama Says:

    Sandra,

    I have a picture like that with my girl…

    **************************************************

    Can you send it to me so I can judge for myself?

  • Amulet

    Sandra you are tripping me out.
    I think you are correct, and Sanaa is the aggressor.

    They can’t be too obvious in public.
    I’m not on the other team, but I’m just saying. lol

  • speakinmymind

    Taraji is not looking at Sanaa in that first pic…looks like she’s talking to or looking at someone behind Sanaa.

    And you don’t have to be a lesbun (your spelling, not mine) to notice if two people, no matter the sex, are in love.

    Slow news day indeed!

  • ReadTheBlog

    I see two heterosexual women. Dream on Sandra Rose. I wonder how soon this would get to their agents and PR people, before they have their legal team on your ass? Let’s count now :-)

  • speakinmymind

    @ Charles,

    I don’t buy that Michelle Obama/Beyonce story for one second. Michelle ain’t (yes, i said “ain’t”) that darn insecure, and Bey (although she seems a little ‘slow’ at times) ain’t lost her damn mind to be flirting with Barack.

    you know Media T@$%(@! be on that ish sometimes…LOL

  • keely107

    You know what Sandra, I had to scroll up and look, and no I wouldnt hug my friend like that. Not around her waist, sorry, my hands would have fallen on her shoulders or some other neutral place if I were sitting behind her. Dang, 2 times today I agree with Auntie…………

  • Terry .W

    @ speak and charles – what story?

  • Amulet

    Taraji looks like a thundercat in that picture. lol

  • keely107

    Speakingmymind:

    Thats the native way to spell lesbian on here, simmer down…

  • Daisy

    I heard John Legend has the interaction on his personal videotape when Pres was greeting folks Sun after the concert Pres told Barack he was no JT but he had to be cool with his girls and did the put a ring on it hand flip gesture that was it. Ryan Cameron talked about it yesterday.

  • speakinmymind

    @ keely107,

    thanks! i didn’t want to get in trouble with the spellcheck police like some folks did yesterday. :o{

  • intown51

    So Smokie you’re saying you would take a picture hugged up on a woman like that other pic of them together? If so, can you send me the picture?

    *********************************************************
    Sandra, you are striking me as a “pic collector”, lol! Seriously, I agree with your inkling. I mean if Taraji let herself go out looking like a thundercat (copywrite Amulet), you know she wasn’t pressed about no men checking for her!!

    Plus Sanaa (man hands aside) has that “I know I’m expected to like men, but I really ain’t feeling it” vibe about her constantly. Since love and basketball.

    And we all know how bad Jody did Taraji, she is probably through with black men together after all that. Prolly just wanted “Something New”.

    Which is cool with me!

  • ReadTheBlog

    Daisy, I don’t get it… could you please clarify?

  • intown51

    I heard John Legend has the interaction on his personal videotape when Pres was greeting folks Sun after the concert Pres told Barack he was no JT but he had to be cool with his girls and did the put a ring on it hand flip gesture that was it. Ryan Cameron talked about it yesterday.

    ****************************************************

    Daisy, what the he77 did you just say? You must be getting IRIE over there babe.. Restate please, I’m curious..

  • teecee

    they were just mad because the charlotte bobcats whipped up on them lakers ass. lololol …..go bobcats….

    now if you want the real scoop, i can ask my peeps in LA who went to the game, they had good seats so i know they werent to far away. i would love to have seen the game on tv but the game was blacked out here even on direct tv with nba league pass which im gonna have to send a nasty email.

  • Amulet

    @teecee,
    Oh so Taraji was a bobcat? lol

  • intown51

    Teecee, I was w/ some NBA heads last night too (laker fans, so watch your mouth…jk), and they were HEATED about the game being blacked out!

  • Daisy

    Oh my bad sorry yall got lost in the sauce. Somebody asked about Beyonce flirting with Pres. Obama. Well Ryan cameron talked about it yesterday on the radio. Sun after the we are one concert Pres Obama was greeting folks and when he got to Beyonce he told her he was not JT (as in the SNL skit) but he had to stay cool and hip for his girls and he did the put a ring on it hand flip/gesture. I am assuming thats why ppl are saying B was flirting with him. I could be wrong as always though.

  • intown51

    Taraji does really look like Panthro, the blue/gray Thundercat. Wait, y’all are two young and Sandra grew up watching British cartoons or somethin. never mind.

  • intown51

    Barack is just up on everything socially. Kind of like most of us blognerds.

  • LilMissRed

    UR Sooo correct Sandra, I don’t have the ‘lesbun trained eye’ to catch that kinda thing, BUT from what I see theyre just chillin/hangin out, hey I could be wrong.. then again.. u could be wrong too.. who’s to say either way

    No,I don’t have any pics of me and my gf’s hugged up, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t hugged them like this either and TRUSS… I’m not into chicks

  • Amulet

    Daisy, wat gawn chica?

    For real though, Imma check that SNL skit out though. Sounds funny.

  • Terry .W

    lmao @ DAISY…thanks for clearing that up coz even I was like huh?…what did she just say???

  • Amulet

    @intown51, Panthro?
    LMAO

  • Daisy

    I have a bad habit of typing like a talk which is fast and not always clear. Sorry..lol

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    Amulet Says:

    Sandra you are tripping me out.
    I think you are correct, and Sanaa is the aggressor.

    *****************************************

    I don’t see Sanaa as the aggressor. I think she’s the femme in the relationship. Notice how she’s biting her lip while Taraji barks at her? That’s what femmes do. They take the passive role and usually never bark back.

  • ReadTheBlog

    Oh…I understand now, Daisy…

    Why would **** try instigate drama behind that?

  • intown51

    Yes Amulet. I used run home to watch Thundercats and Silvehawks religiously.

  • Daisy

    Sanaa has a cute boyfriend some NFL player. I liked Taraiji and Common.

  • Amulet

    @intown51, I see the resemblance in the eyebrows and ears. I loved Thundercats too.

    Lmao @ the spellcheck police. I feel if you know what I’m trying to spell then that’s all that matters.

    If you konw waht I’m tyrnig to sepll tehn tahts all that matetrs.

    Ever get that email with the scramble it says as long as the first and last letter is there the brain can interpret…

  • KAT

    what is IRIE? and i’m still not falling for them being lesbo’s…..nope!

  • Amulet

    Sanaa should just blame it on the alcohol.

  • ReadTheBlog

    I simply don’t believe it. Taraji wasn’t even a convincing dyke in Smokin’ Aces… Alicia Keys was, though. She was as good as Latifah in Set It Off. Even Jada played a good dyke in Set It Off and that wasn’t even her role requirement.

    Sanaa shole got some funny looking hands. You guys ever notice that her hands are rarely exposed in photo shoots, or they’re always occupied? ummm hmmmm

    What jhappened to Taraji and COmmon – did Tracee Ross snatch him up?

  • krbinc

    DAMN! I WOULD LOVE TO BE IN BETWEEN BOTH OF THEM!!!

  • http://taylordior.com taylordior

    OMG Sandra is silly! they just chillin…nothin more, nothin less

  • Amulet

    No…Taraji should blame it on the alcohol.

  • Terry .W

    @ Amulet – you mean “the ah ah ah ah ah alcohol!

  • speakinmymind

    @ Sandra,

    quit fanning the fire…lmao! u know those two are not lesbun.

    but as someone else mentioned, i def think AKeys is lesbun.

  • intown51

    IRIE = 420 = Extra Mellow = IRIE!

  • iscream

    In Sandarose defense most gay people think that everybody is gay… or can be turned out.

  • intown51

    Sandra, Sanaa does look very submissive.

  • PAHairston

    Hello All. Sandra, you got this one all wrong. Look at the picture again, closely. Taraji seems to be looking at someone else that’s NOT in the picture and she looks upset, not in love. This is what I see, plan and simple. Peace.

  • speakinmymind

    @ PAHairston,

    that’s what i said too (comment #20). she is not looking at or talking to Sanaa in either of those pics.

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    @ speakinmymind:
    Sanaa is looking at her like “baby, calm down.”

  • Charles

    Sandra

    Oh something i read on media t out it sounded kind of believeable

    Taraji want to see bobcats!

  • Avanti

    Dang Sandra…everyone isn’t gay! lol

    Even straight friends can have an argument but it doesn’t look like thats whats going on. It looks like Taraji may just be passionate or frustrated about what she’s talking about.

    Its really not that serious! My best friend and I go out, chill, and even travel together and you best believe theres nothing going on there!

  • speakinmymind

    @ charles

    well sandra made it sound like it was some highly specialized training involved…lol

  • MzTee

    Good lawd…I know they are actresses BUT not every day’um body in Hollyweird is gay.

    Why can’t they be two friends hanging out catching the game? Hell, if Sandra saw me with one of my good girlfriends, she’d be writing the same thing about me.
