Power couple Mr. and Mrs. Richard and Tina Knowles-Lawson hosted their 2017 Wearable Art Gala at California African American Museum on Saturday. The event benefits their acting school that they opened recently to teach black girls the art of acting.

Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child attended the Wearable Art Gala on Saturday in Los Angeles. The Wearable Art Gala is the brain child of Beyonce's mother Tina Knowles-Lason and her husband, actor Richard Lawson.

Mr. and Mrs. Magic and Cookie Johnson showed their love and support for son EJ Johnson at the Wearable Art Gala at California African American Museum. in a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey last year, Cookie revealed that her son's flamboyant gay lifestyle was a source of embarrassment to her. “That was a very hard thing for me,” she told Oprah. "That was very, very hard for me. I had to pray about it. This was one of those moments where I had to go directly to God and I prayed."

    There are some serious extremist on SR..wow.. I just read comments I recieved from a few days ago about the guy robbing Jimmy Johns..bruh..tewmerch! So I will say this once for the viewing masses:
    1-I'm here to read comment and be kinda sorta social..not socialized. So the complaint campaigning(Why this world is fukk up speeches) Don't waste your font on my post.Go hard in the paint with someone who ACTUALLY want to play the game with you..
    2-I'm not on here long enough to conjure of the strength to read extremist rhetoric..
    3-I don't care bout what your life views are and why you small, medium, or BIG mad about shyt that got nothing to do with what I actually posted (relevancy or you just white fonting me real talk)
    4-When I do decide to express my views about the country, please come with facts before retorting or you will catch the yawn emoji and a block.. I don't do intellectual debates with an unarmed man or a man filled with facts from what "Whatchamacallit and them said".
    Just a PSA (Please Save ya Ass time by not font me with any of it..)LBVS

    “That was very, very hard for me. I had to pray about it. This was one of those moments where I had to go directly to God and I prayed.”

    So Letoya was there. No pics of all of them or they still being petty as a muthafawka in their mid to late 30s?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I was just thinking that.....MUCH TOO EASY!!

    We need something to stretch our minds (and imaginations), Sandy!!

  • GuestSTAR

    Wonder if Magic is proud of his SON.

  • iWasteTime

    Hello! Hope you and the Lurks are well!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I think LeToya has forgiven it, but is like- That don't mean I fukks with you, though.

    I am amazed Michelle is still friendly after that fall.
    Friends don't let friends fall and leave them there!

    Stitch said- Ohana means family and that means no one left behind!! CTHU

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    This school will teach the fine art of:
    Acting like it okay being BVG's in a "Girls Group"
    Acting like Mr. Knowles aint their daddy
    Acting like all is good at home..Solange failed that course..

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    So in layman's terms- FUKK YOU and YOUR LITTLE DOG TOO!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Ba wa wa!!!

    But she married his daddy though.

    She didn't think for a moment that maybe Magic dibbled and dabbled with men?

    Ha,ha,ha!!!

  • Diva4lyfe

    Mic dropped lmao

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Solange failed that course -- Solo dropped the hell out with less than half the credits needed to graduate.

    Never thought I'd live to see the day when my thoughts were
    'at least Michelle Williams and Magic Johnson look good'. Guess Ben's stepdad decided to go for the Little Richard look.

    So glad to see LeToya there hate her dress shoulda been strapless love her new mini movie videos and can't wait for the new album "Back 2 Life" this month... why didn't the 4 of them pose for a picture together though *Shade* hmm sure seems that way.

    Why does her replacement Michelle show her more love than Bey and Kelly?

    Kelly looked great although I still don't like that heaux...

    Is it me or has Bey been wearing that same red dress to every event? Nothing wrong if she is but I don't like the dress

    Definitely should've been a moment for the 4 of them to snap a picture sad it didn't happen

  • SuperScooper1
  • Soda

    Sandra has commented that Ciara giving birth a second time was not newsworthy.

  • Junkanoo

    Tina always reminds me of an evil witch smiling simply doesnt help, she looks like she has a nasty spirit.

  • Scromes1212

    Magic has had hiv for almost 30 years smh and he still look extra healthy. With the right diet and medication, hiv is more sustainable than diabetes. But everybody looks good so congrats to them.

  • Yoni7

    LOVE Michelle's dress.

  • MsPam

    Ms. Sandra can you read the body language between Richard and Tina?! I know his smile is fake. I see Shea Moisture was a sponsor.

  • Scromes1212

    I just seen the CEO of Shea moisture on the Breakfast club. That situation is a tragedy smh.

  • Noirluv45

    Oh really? Never saw a post.

  • Noirluv45

    She seems to find the time when she's putting CC down. SMH.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    What happened

  • MookieFly

    She tattooed her eyes. It's a saltine thing.

  • Scromes1212

    Nobody cares lol that's not personal, it's just facts. She ain't had a hit in at least 10 years. JS

  • Scromes1212

    The whole commercial situation and the people they have in charge. It's just a bad all around situation.

  • Queen of EVERYTHING

    Cookie has direct access to God huh ? she needs to leak that number.

  • GuestSTAR

    So true, because I know folks who were diagnosed with diabetes 15, 20 years ago and are now experiencing renal AND congestive heart failure. God willing they'll still be alive in 8 months.

  • Scromes1212

    It's sad smh blacks are dying off from AIDS, Diabetes, heart failure, and some of these issues are preventable. Not a good look.

  • Wayup!

    Ok....
    Kelly..Are u wearing flats..? anyway that's beside the point...??
    Michelle...YASSSSS!!!
    Draya...NOOO!
    I thought that young grl was Janelle Monee...Anyway
    Mrs. Lawson ....I approve ?
    Cookie still pretty!!! EJ is too?.....

  • GuestSTAR

    Yep.

  • Scromes1212

    A black man is on the radio talking about they don't approve the ads before they go out smh in 2017. Then I seen where they said Mitt Romeny is the head chairman of one of there main investors smh black folks don't even know what there supporting in 2017.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Her acting NEVER reaches her eyes. But since she played herself, to some degree, in that role...can we call it acting?

  • Wayup!

    That's the same emotion I had when viewing Kelly wig/Dress..?

  • Brenda

    Screw Sandra sorry ass rose

  • Brenda

    Exactly

  • Guess Who

    Why do most of these pics make me LOL?

  • Wayup!

    At least she shimmed up to the beat..da#n..?

  • stav

    Tina's dress looks like it's made of Duct tape, her husband is wearing a Liberace reject suit. Michelle looks nice, Kelly is a tulle mess! EJ looks like a gaye bullfighter, and the rumors may be true about magic with that tacky zebra print tux.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Who watched RHOA? Did yall talk about it? Petra, Petra, Petra. Irks the hell out of me.

  • Kanyade

    Yeah it's acting, even as bad as it was in this one scene. For the most part I felt she did okay in the role, but nothing was Oscar worthy about it. I say it is acting because she's still "on", in performance mode, just not as a singer but a woman pretending to be a singer.

    Dreamgirls was on a cable channel this weekend. I surfed and passed it right on by. A lot of it is still cringeworthy to watch. At least for me.

  • Soda

    Are you implying that we should know who the investors are of every product we use?

  • Junkanoo

    Thanks for the laugh ....spot on

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Can we get a post on hackers stealing season 5 of orange is the new black from Netflix? Whomever did it demanded ransom money and uploaded the whole season to the Internet. ?

  • Coy little wink

    Kelly giving me Sia vibes with that hair.....the dress is gorgeous tho!

    Did Michelle get a boob job?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    LOL

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I saw that story over the weekend. I told a friend about it but he didn't seem interested. Apparently the hackers stole unseen episodes from ABC and Fox News as well.

  • Coy little wink

    I saw some reggae artist with this crap ? looks demonic

  • By Any Means Necessary

    "The event benefits their acting school that they opened recently to teach black girls the art of acting."

    I hope Beyonce is the first student.

    Star Jones looks good... Not too big and not too skinny...

  • Tony

    I'm here for Ej's GUCCI jacket. And Kelly look is nice as well..

  • Tony

    Lol! ? After you mention it..? I personally still love his jacket! ?

  • Quitedeliteful

    I know this is being picky but I want to see Cookie Johnson really glammed up. She always looks nice but a little conservative to me. I'd like to see her go all out...

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Lol

  • Chupilives

    If Star Jones was interested in going to the gym she never would have needed weight loss surgery to begin with.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Their body language looks appropriate to me. His smile does look fake.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Unfortunately Beyonce took Ciara's shine.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    I hope the one in the pic attend as well!!!! ??

  • Junkanoo

    No forgiveness needed.......Tina acts like she's the celebrity and not her daughters. Tina is the poster child of thirsty parents of famous people

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    You know that Magic is getting the latest experimental anti-HIV meds because there are few blacks who are willing to be
    guinea pigs.

  • Renee26

    Same

  • Renee26

    I need to find the leak! I been waiting too long chile!

  • Renee26

    because there are few blacks who are willing to be guinea pigs.

    Which is one of the main reasons why WE have such high death rates with illness. Meds need to be tested prior to being approved and when the majority of people willing to be in a study are lacking melanin the industry can't make meds that treat US properly...our genetic makeup very is different.

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins

    I love Ms. Tina but she and Richard tried it!!!!! They look like they have on halloween costumes from party city!!!!

  • Tamara Artis-Dawkins

    She needs a full ride scholarship!!!

  • Gigi

    Power Couple is a stretch lol

  • Chocolate Bliss

    Is her daughter an alumni? if so people need their money back

  • MsPam

    Okay thanks! I was just wondering if he's lost interest in Faye Hathaway, that's all.

  • LibraGirlonly

    YOU guys look amazing!!

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    Go movies.......

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I completely agree.

    I remember there was an anti-HIV med that worked better on black people than any other group and they ceased any further research on it.
    That's when I stopped supporting gay causes.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Teaching black girls the art of acting?! What a joke! That's not a skill that will help them in their everyday lives.

  • IamAllnatural

    Was Mrs. Cookie Johnson embarrassed by her husband cheating, contracting HIV, & then she stood by her man, or nah? That was way worse than EJ prancing around like an Elite!

  • RESPECK MY NAME BIH

    I HATE whoever does Kelendria's hair. 'Tis all ?

  • Evillene

    EJ looks like he's getting back on his fashion game. LeToya looks like her contract still forbids her from outshining Beyoncé.

  • Scromes1212

    Major investors, YES.

  • dontgetblocked

    Miss Tina is a sweetheart but this was not her best outfit. I love that she's found real love and happiness thought. Kelly tries too hard. She had on sneakers under that ugly dress.

  • dontgetblocked

    Let me go find it. Give it a moment and firestick will have it as well.

  • tanya30060

    What will?? And how are you helping

  • Coffee1st

    Respectively, I beg to differ. It wasn't way worse. Both are embarrassing for very different reasons.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    So I have a request @realsandrarose:disqus , What does your "Body Language 101" say about the 3 Johnsons in that picture above? I have my thoughts, but would like your expertise please

  • Tynamight

    EJ and his chiseled good looks. I bet he's beating the ladies off w/ several bats.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!

  • Lucy

    Tina and Lawrence outfits look like melted Now Laters and Skittles.

  • Dee AKA

    Not coming for you just curious. What is it about Kelly that you don't like?

  • Noirluv45

    Yes, a lot of people care. It not about her "hits," but about her and Russell's new baby. JS.

    Richard and Tina look stupid, and I'm betting that from this night forward, they will act like they got some sense, and make sure to dress like grown folks when they leave the house. My Damn!
