LisaRaye Truly Stays In All White Everything (Including Kitten Heels) As She Shows Off Her Bikini Body After Weight Loss
If there’s one thing that has always been consistent about LisaRaye in her career, it’s that she loves white. From head to toe, this woman could look good in any color out there, but she’s always been loyal to one of the more pale shades from the color spectrum. Even her swimsuits stick to the program, as she posted a picture recently of herself in the bathroom showcasing her curves, which she got right and tight again after a weight loss challenge.
On her Twitter page, and through a video series on YouTube, the actress went through a 90-day fitness challenge with the company ViSalus in the hopes of looking how she did when she played Diamond in The Players Club about 15 years ago. And with the ViSalus’ Transformation Kit, she had to stick to two protein shakes during the day and one meal (yikes!) in order to cut the pounds. Starting late last fall, LisaRaye did a mixture of hardcore cardio workouts and working on her core, pole dancing (a walk down memory lane from her work in the movie) and more, along with the Transformation Kit. In the end when the challenge concluded in the early new year, she lost pounds (about seven), gained muscle (a good thing) and got her s*xy back, as she was hoping for.
You can check out her final weight loss video below and the whole series of them through ViSalus’ YouTube channel. While I wish she would have ditched the white kitten heels and hat (that just isn’t right, Lisa) her body is on point!
It’s rare that you see a black female accepting a nude scene in a movie. But, there have been some brave female actresses who have bared it all and took on a role that involved a nude scene.
Halle Berry made headlines and head turns with her topless scene in Swordfish, which banked her an extra $500,000.
A lot of you out there aren’t too keen on VH1′s latest reality TV show, “Hollywood Exes” because of the idea of these women using someone else’s fame (their ex-husbands’) to gain their own, but LisaRaye has a problem with it for a totally different reason. Her reasoning isn’t really new though because while all of the ladies, and even the show’s producers, have promised that this will be a wholesome, feel-good show, the preview for the entire series shown during the first episode shows there may be a ratchet moment akin to the mess we saw on “Basketball Wives” this season. And to that, LisaRaye said:
What she’s referring to is a scene where Prince’s ex gets a little crunk with Jose Canseco’s. Customarily, a drink is thrown (I’m pretty sure that’s a requirement in every VH1 cast member’s contract) and then it looks as though things get even more physical. When I saw that preview, I definitely had a similar reaction, like really, Mayte, and I was about to quickly blast her for being way too old for that until I found out she’s 38. I mean, clearly she’s still way too old to have that type of on-camera reaction with a real life friend (Hello Evelyn) but I didn’t realize she was the same age as the BBW crew so I guess birds of a feather throw down on TV together.
Right now, it’s not clear what all went down but I’m still sitting in the LisaRaye WTF camp. Although Jessica Canseco could probably use a swift pop in the mouth every now and then, let’s not do this—for a number of reasons.
What do you think about LisaRaye’s comment and “Hollywood Exes” so far?
