Celebrities attend the 45th Annual NAACP Image Awards in Pasadena

Singer/actress Brandy Norwood posed on the red carpet at the 45th NAACP Image Awards. Brandy and the rest of 'The Game' cast will return on BET on March 4. But the best news is the return of Brittany Daniel, aka Kelly Pitts, who will certainly stir up trouble for her ex-husband Jason Pitts (Coby Bell) and his wife Chardonnay (Brandy).

    Hey Jenie (from below) :yahoo:

    I am trying to finish up Season 2 of Scandal and then watch the 10 eppy on my DVR in time for the new episode on Thurs. Yikes!! :shocked:

  • Gynecomastia

    Everyone in attendance looked great. I really dug the show last night. Happy for all my people. Cept for M Jordan. That's a personal issue tho :mad: :lol: If I had to chose I'd say Tika kilt it. That old Hollywood Veronica Lakeish look is working for her :yes:

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=temAjb9d-5s 69

    I hate to go against the crowd but I don't see the appeal of Lupita. She ain't cute at all to me. I didn't want to say that at first but you done did several post on here and this one right here is confirmation.

    Kerry is beautiful but something about her mouth bothers me.

    Nia Long... Nia Long. Ain't nobody fcking with Nia Long. :bow: :bow:

  • Gynecomastia

    Hey again Yardie. Jennie again too :hi: Thought I had been banned :lol: I was like whelp, just more proof Imma hit those numbas tonight :yahoo: I believe in signs :yes: starts humming the words to God is trynna tell you something :whistle:

    Tina fine too but she look wicked up top tho.

    Let me go before Gigi gets in here. She gone call Brandy a roach and it's gonna to piss THIS ONE off. You know you can't say ish about Beyoncé or Brandy and not get CAPITALIZED aka "CAPPED". :kona:

  • Thando

    Brndy is the best looking in my book.

    Lupita....everything is not for everybody.

    Now I am happy for and proud of Lupita, Lord above knows I am...however. As an African I find it amusing how she has everyone in the west spellbound. Honest to God, hand over heart, hand on Bible...she has the typical look of any village girl in Africa. I am not saying they are not beautiful but her look is so common Africans are genuinely puzzled at all the hoohah. I think one should go pick up a dozen village girls at the well and ship them off to a modelling agency and make a killing in agent fees while this look is still hot.

    *brassing myself with arms in the air for the hurl of abuse and haterade coming my way*....but you know I'm telling the truth right? See Alec Wek.

  • Gynecomastia

    Hey 69 :hi: You're entitled. Some urban outlets like to hype up darker skinned entertainers mainly cuz of the lack of diversity the media bombards us with when it comes to Black women. So they'll over compensate. I've seen them do it with Tika who can be hit and miss with me. However, I have to give it to Lupita. She's deserving of the praise. Its not hype imo. I swoon when I listen to her speak. Yes our people can over do it with the praise for reasons I mentioned above, but, Tis what it tis. I understand why. Nias always been a beauty. But boy. Betwixt you and I. That pack a day smoking heffa sholl can have a nasty tude :tea: Again twixt you and I, I think shed be more global but for the fact :hi:

    by Sandra Rose on Feb 23, 2014 at 5:38 pm

    :tea: Ironically, she and her arch nemesis (who's name I won't say) lives sort of mirror each other when it comes to certain things. If one of them would extend an olive branch, they'd probably be able to lean on each other and learn from one another #ijs Say what you want about Gabby Union, but her, Essence, Sanaa, Regina, and a few others realized that no one understands, like some one who is/has been there. Hence the unity between them. They'll continue to be successful because they have a strong foundation in each other...

    Can't tell if this is shade or not :think: She grew up with money. And acts like it :lol: Not in a bad-bad way tho. I mean look at the Dashians and Hiltons and what not. All and all, imo, she's a nice woman.

    Who is her nemesis. You have to say it because I want to know. Or at least tell me why the fell out so I can research and piece together who it is.

  • Gynecomastia

    I guess President Obama called in a favor to Jay Z. Meanwhile, the Spurs may not re-sign heterosexual NBA player Shannon Brown to a regular season contract

    Wait. Don't let me dig up the quotes where you said how Jayz has no say so, no control, owns a few small shares, and is just a namesake. Like Lady Eloise :rofl: How could Obama call in a favor? Could you imagine tho? To be that tight with the most powerful man in the world :love: That man. Obama, not Jay.

    And speaking of bench riders. Heterosexual Shannon Brown is and has been the same thing for several years now. Devout Laker fan here. Let Shannon dunk was spearheaded by me on twitter a few years back. Check the receipts. Im rarely a fan once they leave Losang...Meta :bye: Ashy. Shaq :bye: Ashy...Odom :bye: Cracky. However Shannon and a few others will always be Lakers in my head. If for anything he was one of the few people able to breakthrough the many barriers Kobe puts up and befriend him. So yeah. Shannon fan here, but come on. A bench rider is a bench rider. Shannon will be fine tho. He's an exciting, explosive player...And the boy has hops. He soars. There's always room for a crowd pleaser :yes:

  • Thando

    @Nini. My granma (God rest her soul) taught the following to my mum and her sisters and it works well for me:

    1. Treat the skin on your face like a precious fabric (silk). Do not use a towel/flannel/rag or anything on it. Your hands have just enough friction to clean your face with the help of a good soap. Always pat dry, do not rub. Once a week use a towel to exfoliate but never use a towel on your neck. Hands only on that area.

    2. What you put on your face, put on your neck. What you put on your body, put on your neck. Then put a layer of baby oil or coconut oil to seal. This means your neck has face moisturiser, body lotion and oil to lock things in.

    3. Do not smoke or drink fermented beverages...I think that's the key. It is very unheard of for a female to brazenly drink beer, even worse smoke anything. This is probably the one thing that keeps skin clear and smooth.

    4. Sing, be happy and laugh. Ever heard of a depressed African in Africa? No. Me neither! We be smiling and singing through the drought and hardships even with rags as clothes looking forward to a brighter tomorrow. We see silver linings in every cloud. This is a trait you appreciate more when you live in the west. It keeps you young.

  • Thando

    Oh and in Africa no matter how rich you are...you know were your food is grown and you normally have it in its natural state before it's cooked in your kitchen. Most homes have a garden for all their vegetable and herbs need. You don't get any more organic than that.

  • Ni ni

    Thanks! Im kinda on track. I bought African soap &. coconut oil from the hair store last week...will def start using it on my neck. Im gonna try to use the soap on my scalp. I have eczema and went natural last yr. I always say I wish I knew what people from the motherland use cause they dont seem to have all these issues. Giving up the nip will be hard though lol.

    I have sew much to talk about with you. First out love of the Lakers and the belief that Shannon Brown is a Laker :claps: Can we get rid of Steve Nash please? That was a bad deal from the jump and I called. We signed somebody grandiddy :oldman: to plan ball.
    And that Nia :tea: Whew chile I am trying to figure it out but I ain’t that old to be knowing who was out during her hey day :lol: But based on the fact that you said the other person was accepted by America I am going to assume they were lighter hued… Dated the same men…. Halle was out there quite a bit byke in the day :thinking: Who else it lighter hued and not in the sisterhood with Sanaa….

    Tyrese should invest in some shea butter...I'd still hit though... with a piece of duct tape on his mouth.. :think: nawl... I like to be talked dirty to..no Jason Derulo.. so he will only be allotted certain phrases. Then when the deed is done, the tape goes on.

    On topic: FINALLY!! Miss Lupita gets a look all wrong. She's way past due. Her style team must have been mad that they had to put in work for a black folk award show.

    Kerry's style team continues to show that they have no love for fat womens. They have no clue what to do with her now that she's preggers. They ain't got it right yet.
