Actress Gabrielle Union was spotted out and about promoting her book in New York City. The 45-year-old businesswoman looked fabulous in a canary yellow "Forever Or Never" patch coat from Mira Mikati ($1,279).

Demetria Obilor

Union recently offered her support to embattled news anchor Demetria Obilor, who is still under fire for the revealing clothes she wears on the air that barely covers her voluptuous bod.

One viewer wrote the TV station saying she would boycott the news program because Obilor was a "size 16 woman in a size 6 dress, and looks ridiculous."

Union, who has come under fire for revealing her kinky bedroom habits with husband Dwyane Wade, took to to throw support to Obilor:

"Sending love, light and support to Dallas News Anchor Demetria Obilor who was recently body shamed online. YOU are the real life Mary Jane… A go-getter news anchor who dresses DOPE and doesn’t give a s*** what everyone else thinks. Keep on kicking ass and taking names queen. We love you just the way you are!”

Union also sent Obilor a box of more suitable items for the working woman from her own clothing line, New York and Company:

And since you slay everything you wear, I’m sending you a bunch of pieces from my [New York and Company] collection and some credit for extra pieces!”

    Actually this is one of her best doesn't look like she's trying to hard. Also Ms. Demetria Obilor is a good looking woman. The folks that are mad are either jealous and they have too much time on their hands being mad.

  • Simone

    Demetria Obilor is bad! Angry viewers are jealous and insecure.

  • MsPam

    If Gabby thought the newscaster’s clothes were fine, why did she send her new clothes?! New Post!

  • stav

    The yellow coat is just ok, but the childish colorful lettering on the back is just unnecessary and tacky!

  • Guest

    Pokemon yellow. Issa no.

  • Roderick2011

    That jacket makes Gabby look as if she should be on Sesame Street.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Something is wrong with Gabby. She is not wearing makeup and those sunglasses are covering most of her face. Must be the backlash from her book details. Whatever the case, she's not 100% on board.

  • You Could Never

    Demetria Obilor.

    TrafficBae. Thicker than 25 Snickers.Go girl. You cant hide that no matter what white folks say.

    Or as a Stabber once rapped: "You can't tie a sweater over that ass, or hide it in pajamas"

  • Enoughsaid2020

    She is not under fire, for being shapely. It's the green-eyed monsters, who are so jealous, they can't sleep. SMH!

  • Malcom Flex

    "Forever" shut you damn mouth talking about tossing salad.

  • Dowoop

    I feel the same way when i go to work. I dont even fall into the curvy category but sometimes i have to tell them, it may look like that on you (since they are like a piece of cardboard back and front" but on me it will automatically be several inches shorter.

  • Dowoop

    Like here's a garbage bag - i say this and thought of you.

  • ShWa
