Singers Brandy, Jennifer Hudson, Jill Scott and actresses Jennifer Lewis, Vannessa Bell Callaway, Tia Mowry and Gabrielle Union were among the many lovely celebrities gracing the red carpet at The 4th Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood Awards Luncheon yesterday at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. They all looked beautiful!

Jennifer Hudson attended the luncheon with her adorable son Punk Jr.

Rev. Run’s daughter Angela Simmons is getting thick and juicy

I hear that actress and socialite Lauren London is turning down movie roles left and right. Who needs to work when you have an ex-convict baby daddy that’s a baller?

    Awwwww Punk Jr. is too cute! Angela, in my opinion is trying too hard. Her dress makes her look 10 pound heavier.

  • http://twitter.com/_imOther_ Mamacita

    They all look really good!

    Why would Lauren turn down gigs? Are you gonna live off Wayne and ATL for the rest of your life?

  • FoxE

    @MsToot

    I answered your Gravi question in the KeyCo post. Good luck.

  • KDub

    Do we know the reason why Boris is with Nicole and her long face? Clearly this says this was a BLACK WOMEN IN HOLLYWOOD LUNCHEON…NOT a black guy from Germany can come too.

    If other SO’s and husband’s were there okay. But I don’t see any?

  • http://chokolatemilk.blogspot.com Choco aka Hippie

    Hey OHONEY :hugs:

  • MissHarlem

    Everyone looks nice. Lauren could have came better but still cute not sure for this type of event but ok.

  • Dymond

  • Phrozen1der

    The more you pretned to be a couple the less convincing you have to be in the futuer. Nicole seems clingy to me.

  • AprilRain

    Maybe Lauren just wants to be there for her little one as much as she can. I know I would choose my kids over any movie role anyday..

  • http://www.twitter.com/1_Honey OHoney

    Yso *whispers* no, he used a term of endearment the otha day, I almost fainted.
    I’m keeping it professional though *disclaimer*

  • NewbieNatural

    Angela definitely looks prego!

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkEeNpWMvgk YSoSerious

    @Phro

    Wassamatta bro? Too much Dr. Pepper? Or not enough? :lol:

  • Aprilbaby

    Nothing about Brandy does it for me. Never has, probably never will.

    Everyone else looks great!

    Haven’t seen Punk in a minute.

  • Phrozen1der

    @Yso :lol: Nah I’m good..

  • http://www.twitter.com/cocoabana Cocoabana

    I looked at all these pics last night Essence website

    Jill should have had her son on the red carpet he is uber cute to me

    I don’t like Gabbys dress and Lauren could have spruced it up a tad to me

    To bad we don’t see all these beautiful black women on TV/film much anymore

  • free

    SR talked about gabby without using the words “industry bicycle”! i doubt very seriously that lauren would turn down movie roles just to sit at home and do…nothing. little punk is so cute but his momma know she wrong for all that hair; do people have no shame with weave?

  • BruhMan5th Flr

    Angela and Serena looking mighty herculean as usual, both look like they got the strength of 20 men

  • ohpretty1

    Angela B. looks fab! The rest of the ladies look nice as well.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wkEeNpWMvgk YSoSerious

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

    their daughter sophie has a disability that pretty much requires round the clock care. after reading about their story, i doubt if these two will ever get divorced while she’s still young and unable to care for herself. she’s doing well though.

  • http://twitter.com/afineparadigm afineparadigm

    Was this for unemployed actresses and wanna be’s? Cause I ain’t seen nobody in these pics in a movie in a while; some ever!

  • Queen_City Gem

    Lord, Brandy :smdh: This chile need a whole heap of help :eek:

    Lauren is just tarnished now that we know for an ab-so-lute fact that she let Lil Wayne beat

    Angela almost made it if it weren’t for that extra stomached fabric she’s rocking in the front of that dress :no: chile, :no:

    But Punk Jr is a cutie though….

  • NunyaBizniz

    @sandra, why do you insist on calling that lil man “Punk Jr” :lol:
    you know you’re wrong for that.

  • Sexylenalove

    Who needs to work when you have an ex-convict baby daddy that’s a baller?
    __________________________________________________________________

    Tiny could best answer this question. (Oh I forgot, he is not an ex-convict, he is a CONVICT.)

    He may be her husband now but he was her babies daddy for quite awhile.

  • Sweet-tea

    Everyone looks nice!!! That’s not Angela Bassett. That’s Vanessa Bell Calloway.

  • LadeeA

    Jennifer’s dome is dangerously large. Brandy no (spankz her hand) She still has a long way 2 go. Lauren is cute, but I think her status plunged after her and Lil Shame. Has anyone seen their baby yet :shrugs:

  • GottaBigOne

    JHUD: It does LOOK like U can put a lot of Stuff up there in her mouth . . . U know . . . I’m just Saying . . .

  • lnp03

    Everyone looks great! I really love Angela Simmons. She always looks so young and fresh! She is really turning into a fashionista!
