Diana Ross’s middle daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross, 38, covers the October 10th issue of JET magazine.
Having made her mark on the hit show “Girlfriends” Tracee Ellis Ross is making her television comeback. Her new show, “Reed Between The Lines,” which premieres October 11 on BET, features Ross as a happily married therapist and mother of three. The new gig is just one of the many exciting changes happen in Ross’ life. JET has all the details on her workout regime, her rumored beau (Def Jam’s Bu Thiam), and her famous hair. “You gotta respect the curls … I work for them,” says Ross.
Her banging body might become a new obsession for her many admirers, but for now, when you type her name into Google, the top search is for “Tracee Ellis Ross hair.” “I have so much hair it’s extraordinary,” she says, admitting no one is more obsessed than she is. “You could take half the hair on my head and cover another person’s head.” She grew out her relaxer in high school and has tested so many styles, serums and conditioners that she might put out a book and a line of hair products one day. Not a fan of bone straight hair— “I’m Diana Ross’ child… big hair is what I come from”— she has learned one important lesson in natural hair manage ment: “You gotta respect the curls,” she says. “I work for them. I can’t tell them what to do.”
