PICS: Stars Attend National Cares Mentoring Gala

Singer Maxwell, 45, dropped to one knee for a mock proposal to Tina Knowles-Lawson, 65, who is happily married to veteran actor Richard Lawson, 71.

Maxwell and Mrs. Knowles-Lawson were among the well-heeled stars attending the 2019 National Cares Mentoring Gala in New York City on Monday.

Also attending the National Cares Gala was television personality and news journalist Tamron Hall, 48, who wore a canary yellow dress for the occasion.

    They should have gone with afros cause those perms aren’t helping. Neither of their hair has grown since I was a little girl. Matter of fact, Al’s hair has been the same length since he was Fat Al Sharpton.

    Lastly, what happened to the young 30-something year old lady Al was giving worms?

  • Bossy704

    I used think Maxwell was so fine in the late 90s. How things have changed. Ms. Tina is always flawless.

  • WhoKnew

    Ms.Tina doesn’t seem to be as mean as she used to be since she’s getting some (I assume) on the regular. But she needs to get on the 101 freeway and then back all the way back up the freeway away from all that plastic surgery. I mean she is just setting herself up to be a poster child (or mom) for memes. Her face is forever frozen like the Joker. All I have to say is “es un no para mi perro”. Translated using an Internet translation app that means “it’s a no for me, dawg.

  • iWasteTime

    Is everything ok Jessie ?

  • WhoKnew

    Jessie, I believe, has Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s or some other illness that affects memory and coordination. I found that out when he was wandering around at Aretha Franklin’s funeral and they said he needed someone to guide and direct him.

  • NewNew

    She’s always looked like a witch to me. I don’t think she’s attractive at all, but I’m sure mine is an unpopular opinion

  • Ni Ni

    Tee hee, i didnt know AL had a pyt.

  • WhoKnew

    Mine is too. But you can’t look at that picture and see anything differently. It was her choice to eff up her own face up like that..

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    ole bread basket faced Jessie…

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    is it because he looks like he’s on the Metro tracks asking TK to buy his incense?

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    IF you don’t take your A$$ to the nearest corner for thattttttttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Yardgirl

    I logged on to say that I have never found him attractive at all????? I remember all my friends going gah gah over him and me wondering why? He’s not ugly but not my type lol

  • stav

    Sorry not sorry Bey -hive, but I see where Beoyonce gets her lack of fashion sense, and I wish Miss Tina would stop with the fillers already..out here looking like Madame the puppet. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3dfd663a2f4a5cbd7966e9383fd6ff9414f28bb37078f6584bf047c1c7bbec56.jpg

  • lovelygamour

    maxwell has a large black woman fan base so he puts on these displays to show appreciation. thats all.

  • Vonda K

    Maxwill is cute for that.
    I’m Ms Knowles-Lawson is looking like Donatello Versace. Thats not good.

  • Vonda K

    Sandra Rose do you check your email?

  • lovelygamour

    she has to also be skin bleaching cause her skin looks paper like. she needs to stop. she is already married so unless he likes white women she should focus on being the best her not botox and bleach.

  • T Willis

    I heard he’s a bisexual and had a thing with Nas ? I hope it’s a rumor.

  • Coy little wink

    he’s heterosexual

  • Renee26

    Nope Nope Nope…. Don’t drag my man into that mess

  • Soon2BWife

    Jesse is like, “Harpo who dis skinny little man?”

  • WhooCares

    ????

  • Renee26

    Poor tink tink

  • Soon2BWife

    They are a couple on Black Love and he couldn’t get a word in it was like she was doing him a favor by letting him marry her. It was awkward and I felt sad for him.

  • Li-Wright

    That could be drugs and alcohol. If you look at a lot of singers (excluding smokey robinson and johnny mathis) their faces are really rugged and ragged (like Willie Nelson). When they drink and drug a lot their looks go down down down. I don’t know about Maxwell, he still looks good to me.

  • Renee26

    Maxwell looks like a caveman… He needed those dreds

    Tamron’s dress is off season and her accessories are all wrong… She’s pretty though

  • Dahl

    Lol @ Donatello Versace…???

  • Li-Wright

    Jessie has Parkinson’s and by the grace of god at 80 years old he’s still alive. A little slow when he talked and walked, but it’s amazing what medicine technology today does to keep people alive. Years ago, he would be dead by this time.

  • Soon2BWife

    Always looks like he is short 2-4 showers for the week. I love clean cut and welp actual clean so just Never ever thought he was attractive.

  • Li-Wright

    He has Parkinson’s. His wife was on the view recently – the same age – and she looks and sounds fit as a fiddle.

  • OvertheMississippi

    Morris Day looks goodt! Saw him in Biloxi. Sounded good too.

  • HotInCleveland

    I thought he was dating some younger woman in her 30s. Never mind I’m thinking of Al Sharpton

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Im guessing Al Sharpton will NEVER grow into that head of his?????

  • Coy little wink

    I don’t like red nail polish…

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    I wonder what kind of bleaching cream Tina and her daughter use…

  • Seldomseen

    Whew Chile!

  • hi-liter

    Don’t think Tina bleaches. Mathew Knowles said he thought Tina was a white woman when he first saw her. She prolly gets lighter in the winter, a tad darker in the summer.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Tina is VERY pale and looks olderrrr she’s giving me Ertha Kitt vibes…

  • RealATLPeach36

    They bleaching honey..

  • Mellsvoice

    He has Parkinson’s I think. I know he announced an illness.

  • NewNew

    Wow, he really does. She could have given birth to him herself. That boy has swag just like his mother. I love me some Solange.

  • NewNew

    I agree. Let’s cut her feet some slack.

  • SayWhatNow?

    It’s about 3 YIKES up top! Oh if someone is sick, lord forgive me and I take that yikes back.

    “It’s about 3 YIKES up top” :-)

  • Karen Brady

    She needs to tone down the hair color and/or makeup choice with it… something. I vote for the hair.

  • Kimberly King

    Mama Knowles can do no wrong in my eyes because she’s a fellow Capricorn like me and I just love resilient she is, but Chile ….. her feet are killing me ! I thank god for gorgeous toes and if I ever had comes on my feet, I would cover them shits.
