    I think something wrong with Common. He's dated some of the most beautiful black women in Hollywood but has trouble getting them to stay. I hope this one last. Maybe bad breath or gang bangin toes? I notice he always play somebody angry in movies/tv shows. Idk but best wishes

  • Bashi22

    Off all the women Common dates in Hollywood who are accomplished as well did get death threats but some how Angela Rye love her PR team wish them the best of luck

  • We Can Do This

    Common is an overlooked womanizer!

  • bemetoo

  • Wayup!

  • GradyBaby

    Viola and her husband look nice. Polished and classy.

    Viola(whom I worked with on "City of Angels" & HTGAWM) and first met at Sag Awards is the most friendliest leading lady actress in the business.
    Also she ALWAYS knows her lines and is a TOTAL professional.

  • MookieFly

    Omg nuh uh! Angela Rye got a side hustle being a beard?? Get money bish I guess

  • PhillyFacts

    Love me some Common?

  • Jen_no_juice

    Aisha made me dizzy in that bettlejuice outfit. Common and Angela look cute together

  • davine puddin

    Although, Common is my 2# celebrity crush he looks nice and happy with her...their clothes is a little blah but who need to be so Hollywood. I just hope he smell good if i ever met him in person

  • Dahl

    Hate turtlenecks with suits. Andra looks adorable, Viola and her husband look great. Aisha reminds me of...

  • JRock

    What power couple? Common and Angela Rye? Sandra, girl, please. Are you sipping on that yak at 5:30 in the evening?

  • JRock

    Yup, I'm thinking he's gay too. He's in his what 40s or 50s and never been in a lasting relationship with a woman.

    Same thing for Tracy Ellis Ross. I'm thinking she is a lesbian. Pushing 50 and no lasting relationships with men. I guess it's their life if they want to be gay.

  • MsPam

    Hey I missed you! Can we get a list of famous people you’ve worked with! ??? Just kidding!

  • teather

    They look good together! I hope this is a good coupling for them.

  • teather

    LOL! It's not the best look but some guys like it.

  • Wayup!

    True.. in light of all the things we see coming out in Hollywood nothing surprises me about anyone anytime Terry Crews said he let a man grab his balls in front of his wife could just imagine with all kind of things go on that they have not revealed to us yet... And as a matter of fact I don't want to know...?

  • Wayup!

    Right. Serena KNEW what she was doing!!!!

  • MsPam

    Who wants to kill her over Common?! I might be old but is he considered worthy ( a prize)?! I never found him attractive.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Common and Angela look good together, but Idk...something is off. They'll probably get married though.

  • GuestSTAR

    She's an activist and it's said he's a conscious rapper, I can see this coupling.
    Lol, I like how Angela go at it with Republicans on CNN. She doesn't bow or break. They'll lie, she'll call them out, they'll try interrupting her and she continues to talk over them.
    I always thought and still think Common is handsome.

  • Bashi22

    Out of all the Hollywood ladies he’s been with they chose her to send death threats

  • MRiGOThim

    Common & Angela looks good together...
    Viola Davis & her husband looks good together...

  • NeverSurprised

    Thank you. I absolutely do not believe anyone is so invested in Common that they are sending this woman death threats over him. The only people I've ever heard raving about Common were gay men, so maybe one of them is upset.

  • NeverSurprised

    I like Viola as well. Don't know how I feel about the hubby. What does he do for a living?

    OMG I am loving the black couple on the Christmas light show. They are smart and beautiful' They even got a tree they designed and now there is a patent pending. LOVE IT!!!!!!

  • V Dubb

    Beautiful black people. I need the Rise Up girl to go away.....that song gets on my.damn nerves.

  • Letbyegones

    I told my person of sincere interest that she is my Angela Rye. I’m afraid things may have moved so fast. Things are getting too real for her. Idk if she’s ready to experience that true love and friendship. She expressed her true feelings this weekend and I believed it. Idk if I reciprocated it the best way I know how. It’s just that I haven’t met someone who expressed that feeling and I was slightly taken aback. But, the distances is not a bow shot - just a slight movement of the left heal to brace myself for what’s next.

    The process of emotions filling up your heart and mind is like purple dye changing the color of a bottle of water. The color is half way up

  • Malcom Flex

    Don't let him take the best years of your life if he don't put a ring on it.

  • T3

    Lovely couples. Love is beautiful!

    Viola's skin tho............


    Why does the ACLU have black people hosting? I guess it looks great for the image but it would look better if they had the people whom interest they really operate for. I see all these black people but they really fight for foreign interest. Gotta Love the Democrats and their liberal Agencies...

    Illegal Immigration is not a good look for black people but... Go Democrats go.... LMAO Dont believe the hype.
    Well love the black faces but these are the top issues on their website...

    Immigrants' Rights and Detention

    ICE and Border Patrol Abuses

    Road to Citizenship

    Deportation and Due Process

    State and Local Immigration Laws......

  • Yardgirl

    Who is the lady with the black/white bat wings? I wish the photos were all labeled because I don't know half of the people posted 75% of the time, lol.

    I love me some Viola Davis and need her bag and shoes in my life!!

  • Ant Hill

    put your cape back in your mamas closet Captain Save A H*

  • IAmLegend

    Nah don't do Tracey like that. When she was dating Bu Thiam, everybody had something to say. She should keep her dating life private.

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    I think he’s just a h0e nothing more than that.

  • Bashi22

    Common only perform him and Angela never host anything

  • Quitedeliteful

    Viola Davis looks gorgeous!!!! Her and her hubby look good together.

  • Quitedeliteful

  • Quitedeliteful

    Who is the woman with the striped winged suit??? I wonder if she designed it herself. Her makeup is beautiful...


    Common ain't shit, he is FAKE, I guess Serena was too dark for his taste,
    anyway he does a lot of flapping his gums about what to do in his hometown Chicago, tell the President to leave Chicago alone, WHY isn't Common and Icube out in Chicago helping with the crime wave instead of living in Los Angeles and giving their do nothing opinions.

  • Daryl Campbell

    Yes, he does come off as less than genuine.

  • Michael Washington

    Not a Common fan at all....The Light,Go and I think one more of his songs i got off Audio-galaxy awhile ago...
    And for the record ,: Hes done nor said anything to earn my NON fan-ship.

    Some people you just don like for NO reason...I don't try...

  • Michael Washington

    Love Angela tho...she has a cool , precise delivery..

    I still stand for MHP tho...

  • Michael Washington

    Angela can do IMO MUCH MUCH better than Sir Common...

  • Michael Washington

    Hello Hello man here...

    As a rep for gay black men here...Let the record read, he has never been on our radar like say a Trey Songz, and the other one...I cant remember his name but hes the popular Giants player from LSU with the FROSTED TIPS.

    Tyson Beckford got more love from us even....

    We always felt and knew Common would be a bad choice for a gay situation...We may smash him but he's a large and dark sisters prize. (and you know WTF i mean by that.

  • Michael Washington

    Hes extremely average as a rapper and man...

  • Michael Washington

    NOT GAY...

    He belongs to yall...
