Gabrielle Union has already expressed that many of the people sitting around expecting to receive an invitation to her wedding to Dwyane Wade probably won’t be getting one. At this point, those close to the couple are probably already aware of who’s in and who’s out. Recently, those lucky enough to make the cut were made hip to the rules of the engagement when they received their official wedding invites. It appears that Gabby and Dwyane are running a pretty tight ship.

The invitation was accompanied by a letter from the couple, revealing what will not be allowed at the ceremony in order to protect their privacy. Ironically, the letter and the invite were both leaked to TMZ. The note reads:

To our family and friends,

We are looking forward to sharing this very special day with you. For the comfort of our guests and to protect our privacy, no cameras or cell phones will be permitted at the party. Also, photo IDs will be required for all guests. Gentlemen, formal attire in black; ladies, we would love to see you in formal white.

Transportation to and from the party venue will be provided from the [redacted]. Buses will depart promptly at 9:45pm from the North-North entrance of the hotel; please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure to process through security. If you choose to drive yourself, please call [number omitted] hours prior to the event at [address omitted] for directions to the venue (located approximately 45 to 50 minutes south of South Beach).

Love, Gab and Dwyane

It’s nice to see a more diverse group of women get shine in the media these days, and by diverse, I do mean women of color, but more specifically, the shades of black women we get to see on TV and in magazines. And not only are these women beautiful, but they are confident, and provide young girls with words of encouragement to embrace the skin they’re in. Here are 14 women who have done just that in a culture that spends too much time celebrating one homogeneous look.

‘You Are Not Team Jesus!’ Gabrielle Union Responds To Internet Trolls

The Internet can be a very mean place, especially when you’re a celebrity. Just take Gabrielle Union for example. The “Think Like A Man Too” actress has been the target of countless Internet trolls over the years, but she appears to be taking it all in stride.

“I think a bad by-product of negative posts are how commenters—if you read your comment section of your Instagram. People are very comfortable saying cruel things. I mean unnecessarily cruel things,” she recently told BET. “And then you click on their posts and it’s like, “team Jesus.’ And you’re like, ‘You’re not team Jesus! You are NOT team Jesus!’”

Gabby’s “Think Like A Man Too” co-star LaLa Vasquez, on the other hand, says she decides to look on the bright side when she receives negative attention.

“I come from the mindset where it’s like, worry when people aren’t talking about you. Like no matter what you do, people are always going to have something to say. I’m just like, ‘If you really get to know me, you would like me! I’m cool! Why are you saying these things?’”

She did however, admit that constantly reading negative comments could take a toll on a person after a while.

“Put it like this, if you want to have a bad day, read all of your comments.”

Regina Hall also chimed in, revealing that the constant negativity is one of the reasons she avoids social media.

“I’m not on social media. I hear about blogs, but that’s one of the reasons that I’m not. And it’s a small percentage I would say because most of the stuff is positive. But it’s like, it’s so little information that they’re even commenting on. I just feel like, why say it?”

“People always feel the need to express their opinions and it’s so interesting to me how people feel like they have a right to say unkind things. I don’t read them a lot.”

Gabrielle Union Talks Turning Tricks For D. Wade & Knowing The Real Sheree Whitfield

Gabrielle Union is such a joy to watch on television. She’s quirky and funny and quite adorable. And in the midst of being all those things, she also manages to speak the truth. During an interview on “Watch What Happens Live” Union spoke about everything from her best on-screen lover to distracting her man when he’s had a tough loss. And interestingly enough she also says that the Sheree she knew, before the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” was not like the woman we’ve seen on screen.

Check out the highlights from her interview and the videos below.

Andy asks her about the Miami Heat loss and whether or not it was hard on her.

“It was. I’m still in the thick of it. I’m like on the ground, there’s tears. He’s like ‘Baby, you win some, you lose some. I’m disappointed, I’m hard on myself but…you know, suck it up sister, really.’”

Andy asks if a tough loss means it’s going to be a rough night at home with Dwyane.

“No it means you pull out some tricks. The trickery comes out. I’m like ‘Alright, (fake stretches) missed the game winner…’”

“I do. But from like before they were Atlanta housewives. She actually had the hottest boutique in Atlanta for years. And it was the most amazing, fabulous boutique and she was awesome and amazing and totally normal. She actually has amazing, like sick taste. There was Sheree that I met, who was this amazing boutique owner that you walk in and she gives you champagne and it was amazing. And then there’s the show which I think is a character. But the real Sheree is cool as hell.

Her fellow guest, Shannon from the “Real Housewives of Orange County” interjects saying, there’s no character here though, pointing to herself. To which Gabby responded:

“You take responsibility, listening to you be accountable for your actions is a whole ‘nother thing.”

Dang. That’s just the slightest bit of shade if I ever heard it.

Ya’ll Fine! Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union And The Ladies Of “Think Like A Man Too” Cover Essence

Looking good ladies! And I must say that the hair and the smiles are popping!

For the magazine’s second annual “Body Issue,” Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union, La La Anthony and Regina Hall are front and center on the cover of Essence Magazine’s July issue. The ladies, dressed in all white and smiling it up while looking like best friends forever (BFFs), look fabulous on the cover, as they promote Think Like A Man Too, which comes out on June 20. Promotion for the movie is now being kicked into overdrive.

The synopsis for the sequel goes a little something like this:

“…all the couples are back for a wedding in Las Vegas. But plans for a romantic weekend go awry when their various misadventures get them into some compromising situations that threaten to derail the big event.”

After the massive success of the first film, which raked in a surprising $96 million worldwide for a budget of only $12 million, Essence decided to give the ensemble cast some shine (ladies only of course), and they’re most definitely shining (and white hot!) on the cover of this new issue.

Will you check out Think Like A Man Too when it comes out later this month? Were you a big fan of the first film?

Tara Wallace

If “Love & Hip-Hop” is nothing else, the reality show is beyond messy. In season four we were introduced to former rapper Peter Gunz and his artist Amina Buddafly. The chemistry between the two was obvious and it was clear Gunz was dipping out on his longtime girlfriend and mother of his two sons, Tara Wallace. But we soon found out afterwards that Gunz and his artist were actually married. And when Tara found out about their union, her on-and-off relationship with the “Uptown Baby” rapper, which actually began when with her being the other woman, was over. Amina is currently pregnant with her manager’s baby.

It’s almost that time!

Last winter, Dwyane Wade proposed to longtime girlfriend, Gabrielle Union. Since then, the bride-to-be has spoken quite vaguely about her wedding plans, but apparently they are moving along full speed ahead. The couple recently sent out save-the-date reminders to their small guest list. And of course, the reminders have already been leaked to TMZ.

The adorable reminders showcase photos from the Miami Heat star’s touching proposal, which included his sons holding up signs, which read:

“Nickie, will you marry us?

FYI: Nickie is Gabby’s nickname. The ceremony is set to take place August 30, 2014 in Miami, Florida.

Gabrielle has joked in the past that her hubby-to-be has really gotten the hang of this whole wedding planning thing and is actually the mastermind behind their upcoming ceremony.

“I’m out doing wine tastings, secretly this is like his princess moment he has waited for a long time, he’s been hoarding bridal magazines, he’s very ready,” she poked fun just two months after the proposal.”

“He’s into aspects I didn’t even know went into wedding planning. He is on. To have a centerpiece, to not have a centerpiece—he has very strong opinions. [He says] no centerpieces. Who cares? Um, he does! He’s very particular about the music and the guest list.”

Cute. We’re wishing Gabby and D all the best.

I actually went to both my junior and senior prom near the end of May, but for many current high school students, prom season has officially started. It’s that time of year when your parents will happily pay hundreds of dollars for you to enjoy a few hours of dancing, posing, eating and God knows what else you were doing after the prom ended.

Good times.

Just as we did last year, we thought we’d give you the chance to see some of your favorite famous folks dressed up for their own proms back in the day, and we have 12 celebs ready to embarrass for your enjoyment.




Ah yes…both Ashanti and her friend’s prom dresses look like something I saw quite a few girls wearing to prom back in the day–a lot of velvet and sequins. Now as for those eyebrows…hey, you live and you learn.
