A trailer has finally been released for Chris Rock’s new film Top Five, which tells the story of wildly successful comedian and movie star Andre Allen (Chris Rock), whose run-in with journalist Chelsea Brown (Rosario Dawson) causes him to reexamine his life and career. Gabrielle Union plays rocks superficial reality TV star fiancée, Erica Long, who’s never around without a gang of reality TV cameramen.

The all-star cast also includes Kevin Hart, Tracy Morgan, Cedric The Entertainer, J.B. Smoove, Sherri Shepherd, Anders Holm, Romany Malco, Leslie Jones, Michael Che, and Jay Pharoah. According to Deadline, the film triggered a pretty competitive bidding war last month at the Toronto Film Festival. Paramount Pictures eventually won for a whopping $12.5 million.

Top Five was both written and directed by Chris. Interestingly, Jay Z and Kanye West are credited as co-producers for the project. Judging by the trailer, it’s going to be pretty funny. The comedy is slated to hit theaters in December.

Watch the trailer below. Is this something you’d be interested in checking out?

It’s almost that time again ladies and gents.

The folks over at BET are preparing to bless us with season two of their popular series “Being Mary Jane”. An exact premiere date has not been made public as of yet. But considering that the network just dropped a quick teaser for the new season, we’re guessing that it’s coming a lot sooner than later.

The trailer doesn’t give up much as far as the plot goes, but there may be a bit of foreshadowing going on. In the clip, Mary Jane can be seen wearing her pajamas while standing alone in a room full of mirrors. Stacy Barthe’s “Face Myself” is playing in the background and it appears that this may be exactly what Mary Jane will have to do this season.

As you may recall, by the conclusion of season one, Andre was back with his wife, Avery, and it was revealed that David is expecting a child with his new lady. This, of course, leaves Mary Jane alone. However, knowing Mary Jane, she may not be alone for along.

Anyway, check out the teaser below. Are you ready for season two?

Actress Gabrielle Union lent her celebrity and creative abilities to Planned Parenthood for their Women are Watching campaign, which seeks to “highlight what’s at stake for young women in November’s election.”

The front of the shirt designed by Gabrielle, which will be sold by the Planned Parenthood’s Action Fund reads:

“My Birth Control. My Decision.”

And the back reads:

“Women Are Watching.”

Gabrielle is the second of three celebrities to design a t-shirt for the advocacy and political campaign.

“It’s hard to believe we’re still living in a time when some politicians believe they should make decisions for women about birth control and basic health care. That’s why I’m always proud to support Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s efforts to engage women around critical issues in the upcoming election through their Women Are Watching campaign. We have to vote like our access to birth control and basic health care is on the line this year – because it is,” the newlywed said in a press release.

“We’re proud to partner with Gabrielle Union once again to motivate millions of young women in what will be a critical election for women. Women’s health and rights are under unprecedented attack, as proved by the U.S. Supreme Court’s dangerous decision in favor of Hobby Lobby. We have less than 40 days until Election Day, and we’re fighting back. Every woman in this country deserves elected leaders that will protect access to birth control, preventive health services provided by Planned Parenthood, and safe and legal abortion. Most importantly, we need more leaders to trust women to make their own health care decisions,” adds Dawn Laguens, executive vice president, Planned Parenthood Action Fund.

Gabrielle Union Speaks On Pregnancy Rumors

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes the baby in the baby carriage.

Newlyweds Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade already have the love and marriage part down. Are they now gearing up to welcome a bundle of joy? That’s what a few of the Think Like A Man Too actress’s Instagram followers began speculating in the comments section of her Throwback Thursday post from yesterday. In case you missed it, the 41-year-old beauty took to her IG page with a photo of herself and Dwyane on one of their date night adventures in New York City. In the photograph, she’s wearing a loosely fitted dress, which some assumed there was a baby bump hiding under. Though Gabby explained her loose dress in the photo’s caption, it did nothing to stop the questions.

“#tbt NY date night at Carbone’s in my new fave boots and hat… you ever wear “good eatin clothes” so you can be comfy when the gluttony kicks in… yeah… that,” she wrote.

“She definitely looks preggo,” wrote one follower.

“Preggo?” questioned another.

Once Gab caught wind of the comments, she was quick to shut them down before the rumors could even begin to take flight.

“I wore a big dress so I could eat…no baby bump…reading is fundamental kids… am I the only one that dresses so I could can pig out? Or does everyone just unbutton their pants after dinner like big mama??? Lmao…y’all are funny.”

Well, that’s that. I guess we’ll have to stay tuned to see whether or not the Wades decide to add to their clan. Gabrielle has expressed a desire for a child in the past, but stated that she’s not super pressed for it to happen.

“I Will Not Be Shamed”: Gabrielle Union Blasts People Who Think She Was A Fool For Marrying Dwayne Wade

When Gabrielle Union walked down the aisle with her man Dwyane Wade, you would think the naysayers would finally let her be. Clearly she isn’t concerned about the past and the headlines. But alas, ring or no ring, some people still think that she never should have married him after he had a child while they were on a break from their relationship last year, and they let her know on her Instagram page and online in general.

“Why would you marry a man who cheated on you AND had a child with that side chick?? You deserve much better but I’m pretty sure that “money” is a major contributing factor to your decision.”

“Damn…dwayne knocks up a brawd and you took him back Lmaoooo”

“it must suck to have people all over the world laughin at you lol”

“sorry, but once a cheat, always a cheat. he’ll treat her the way he treated his first wife. she’ll get played, she can count on that.”

Well, Union isn’t having it. On Instagram yesterday she posted a beautiful photo from her wedding. In the caption she had a message for those who don’t have anything positive to say about her man and her marriage:


“The walk… To love… I leave behind fear, judgement, scorn… I will not be shamed, lectured on what I “deserve” or what I have “coming to me”… I’m a lot of things but careless, ignorant, gullible or a deviant, I am not. Love to those who have shown me love… God Bless #tbt #happy #andthebeatgoeson #whosewatchinScandaltonight #gladiatorsstandup”

Gabrielle Union To Contact The FBI Over Leaked Photos

One of our favorite actresses, Gabrielle Union is making major headlines for all the wrong reasons this weekend.

Union joined a growing list of celebrities whose private photos were leaked onto the Internet. A group of hackers are somehow accessing the Apple iCloud accounts of celebrities and leaking their personal information.

In a statement, Union and her husband Dwayne Wade stated,

“it has come to our attention that our private moments, that were shared and deleted solely between my husband and myself, have been leaked by some vultures.”

“I can’t help but to be reminded that since the dawn of time, women and children, specifically women of color, have been victimized, and the power over their own bodies taken from them.

“These atrocities against women and children continue worldwide.

“For anyone out there also being affected by these and other hacking and hate crimes – we send our love, support and prayers. We have done nothing wrong.”

Gabby is also reportedly reaching out to the FBI to handle this matter. In addition to Gabby, the hackers have also affected Kim Karadashian, Jennifer Lawrence and Vanessa Hudgens.

Now we know celebrities live in the limelight but it truly saddening to see their personal photos and information being shared to the world. We can imagine the anger Gabby feels, especially as a newlywed.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union went out of their way to keep #theWadeUnion a secret. But we’ve managed to sleuth out a few exciting facts about their big Labor Day event. And you’ll be surprised by what we found out.

Dwyane Wade Was In Charge of the Planning

Gabrielle Union told the New York Times, “He realized that I was trying to turn it into a frat party with K-cups and beer pong, and he took over.” So Dwyane took over “85%” of the planning to give the wedding a classier vibe: “I was thinking ‘Harlem Nights’ and Eddie Murphy, classic movies and the way they dressed.”

How cute are the Wades!?

We told you that Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union tied the knot this past Saturday, and now they’ve decided to share a new image from their big day with their fans. On both of their Instagram accounts, the couple posted a beautiful image of themselves with Wade’s sons, Zaire and Zion (infant Xavier wasn’t in this photo, nor is it clear if he was at the ceremony), as well as Wade’s nephew Dahveon Morris. The two captioned the image with “#TheWadeUnion,” a hashtag they used throughout their big weekend.

Union also shared a beautiful shot of herself in her custom Dennis Basso gown and had this to say about her big exclusive gown:

 

“Thank you thank you thank you @DennisBasso for helping me design THE most perfect gowns for the most special night of my life… So grateful… So happy “

Again, the couple tied the knot in front of family and friends in Miami, as men were instructed to wear black, and the women invited were asked to match the bride in white. Wade proposed back in December, and this is the second marriage for both. Wade was married to Siohvaughn Funches from 2002 to 2010, and Union was married to NFL player Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006. Congrats!
