Although they broke up and moved on with other people, we just can’t seem to get over these high-profile celebrity relationships that we thought were a match made in heaven. Here are 15 celebrity couples that we wish could have stood the test of time.
Kanye and Alexis
Before there was Kanye West and Kim Kardashian or even Kanye and Amber Rose, there was Kanye and Alexis. The Chicago rapper/producer met Alexis Phifer back in 2002 and the cute couple dated on and off for four years before West finally popped the question. After an 18-month whirlwind engagement the two went their separate ways citing his hectic touring schedule as the cause. West dated then-unknown model Amber Rose before settling down with the reality show superstar who is now pregnant with their first child.

After coming home from a long day of work sometimes all you want is to plop down on the couch and find something good to watch on TV. Well thank goodness prime time TV is booming with shows that intrigue us and actors and actresses that look like us. With acting that leaves you thirsting for more and silently cursing yourself if you’re away and failed to DVR the latest episode, these celebs are well worth your undivided attention.
Kerry Washington plays fierce crisis manager Olivia Pope in the political drama-series Scandal. As a former White House Communications Director for the president, it is difficult for her to shed her past – which includes a secret, steamy affair with President Fitzgerald. Washington’s character has a tight-knit relationship with each member of her new firm, having helped them with problems in their past – but it’s Pope who is ultimately struggling to deal with her own personal crisis.
Yesterday, we reported that Regina King and Malcolm Jamal Warner had ended their relationship. Sources claimed that it wasn’t in the most friendliest of terms. Supposedly, Malcolm asked Regina and her son to leave the home they shared together. Well today, Regina King tweeted a response to the story (in the screenshot above) claiming that she and Malcolm are “good.”
Maybe it’s just me but I’m still a bit on the confused side. Does she and Malcolm are good mean that they aren’t broken up or that he didn’t throw she and her son out the house like their relationship was a Tyler Perry movie? The phrases “Life happens” and “Forward motion” could apply to the fact that she’s starting a new chapter in her life, without Malcolm or it could mean that she’s moving past the rumor madness.
Who knows. We’re sure the details will come out sooner or later.
What do you make of Regina’s cryptic message? Do you think she and Malcolm are still together or not?
If there were ever a celebrity couple I wanted to see walk down the aisle, it was Malcolm Jamal Warner and Regina King. But right now, it’s not looking like that is going to happen. Us Magazine is reporting that the couple are ending their nearly three year relationship and not on the best of terms.
The source says Regina is pretty tore up about it.
The couple, who are both 42, and have known each other since their days on 227 and The Cosby Show, both claimed that their relationship, though it was a long time in the making, happened at just the right time. And in 2011, the both denied rumors that they were engaged.
Well, this sounds terrible. Not for the fact that they’ve broken up. Every relationship is not meant to last forever. But if this source is right and Malcolm did her like that… it just seems a little grimy. And I really don’t want to have to think about him that way. But one never knows what goes on behind closed doors.
Either way we’re hoping that the rumors are just that and these two can continue to build together.
What do you think about these reports? Do you believe their true? Is telling someone you’re “just not feeling it” after almost three years together a bit harsh?
The future of a kid star or teen actor is an unsure one. We learned this fact from the entire cast of Different Strokes… and, actually the stars of MOST eighties sitcoms, including Jaimee Foxworth, who played the youngest daughter, Judy, on Family Matters for the first few seasons before her character was suddenly dissolved and wound up doing adult films. So, for a star to not only survive the kid star to adult role transition–continuing to have a thriving career, but to also transition into a stunningly attractive adult, that is an amazing feat. Actresses and actors such as Hilary Duff, Dakota Fanning and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are looking better than ever, so let’s check out who’s looking better with time in our community.

Before 2004, Jamie Foxx was a comedian, known for his standup and his role as “Wanda” on “In Living Color.” Sure, he’d been in a couple of movies; but he’d only really flexed his acting chops in Any Given Sunday. Booty Call won’t necessarily go down in history as a classic. But all of that changed in 2004, when Jamie Foxx landed the role of a lifetime, portraying legendary musician Ray Charles. From that moment on Jamie was an actor, a true thespian. You saw the movie, you were amazed by the performances but we bet you don’t know these behind the scenes secrets. Check them out.

By now most people know Kevin Hart’s hilarious style of comedy.
He’s a great storyteller with all the perfect punch lines, the voices, and the extras. The comic is on top of his game right now with additional big screen gigs as well as growing popularity.
Recently he wrapped up filming for yet another flick, “About Last Night,” a remake of the 1986 original about two single men living wild lives until love catches hold.
The film stars Regina Hall, Michael Ealy, and Joy Bryant; and Hart admits he gets to play a different role this time around.
See what part he’ll be playing over on EurWeb.com.
In Hollywood nowadays there are tons of actresses including a few Black actresses that dominate the big screen. We all know that actresses get paid millions for their talent and performances, but it goes without saying that some make more than others. Here are the 15 highest paid black female actresses according to Celebrity Net Worth.
With dozens of star rolls, it’s no surprise that Halle Berry is worth a net $70 million.
Early this morning, Kerry Washington took the stage with Jimmy Kimmel (who was wearing pajamas!) to announce the nominees of the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards and a there are some notable brown faces among the nods.
Idris Elba received a Lead Actor In A Miniseries Or A Movie nod for playing John Luther in the BBC miniseries “Luther”. That miniseries is up for an award of its own in the Best Miniseries or Movie category. Don Cheadle was nominated for Lead Actor In A Comedy Series for his character Marty Kaan on Showtime’s “House of Lies”. Giancarlo Esposito is nominated for Supporting Actor In A Drama Series for his role in “Breaking Bad”. Maya Rudolph is nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress In A Comedy Series for her hosting gig on “SNL.” Loretta Devine was nominated for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Adele Webber on “Grey’s Anatomy”.
Tracy Morgan plays in “30 Rock” and that show picked up a nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. Also, Cee-Lo Green is a judge on “The Voice” and that show reportedly took American Idol’s spot as it was nominated for Best Competition Reality Show for the first time. Among other categories, The Daily Show picked up a nomination for Outstanding Writing For A Variety Series and Wyatt Cenac is a writer on that show.
Of course you can’t talk about who was nominated without noting who was not nominated.
Despite mostly rave reviews and predictions otherwise, neither ”Scandal” nor its castmembers received nominations this year. The reasoning is unclear. It would be easy to say “Oh it debuted in April and only had seven episodes”, but Shonda Rhimes’ other show “Grey’s Anatomy” first season debuted in March and only had 9 episodes yet Sandra Oh was nominated and the show itself received three nominations that year. Besides, cable shows get nominated regularly even though they may only about produce six to ten shows (compared to maybe 20 for a broadcast network). In addition, it obviously was eligible because ABC was definitely campaigning for Scandal to get a nomination this year, but it didn’t happen. Maybe next year.
Regina King – who famously declared the Emmys were “White As Ever” in 2010 – was snubbed against this year after many thought she’d be nominated for for her role in ”Southland”.
“Mad Men,” earned a leading 17 Emmy nominations. The miniseries “American Horror Story,” received a matching 17 award nominations. “Downton Abbey,” earned 16 bids. “Hatfields & McCoys,” also earned 16 and “Hemingway & Gellhorn” was nominated for 15. ”Modern Family,” honored as best comedy series for the past two years, was the sitcom leader with 14 bids.
What do you think of this years nominees? Who do you think will win?

We had the chance to showcase the brothas last week and all their fashion dos and faux pas for the NBA Finals, but now it’s back to the sistas! Let’s see what some of our favorite ladies were up to fashion wise this week.
Everyone’s favorite child star turned success, Regina King, showed up for the Critics’ Choice Television awards in Beverly Hills in this red number with an asymmetrical top. The bright red number had embroidery all over and a lace overlay at the chest. Around the waist was a red sash, and to accessorize, she wore a David Yurman gold tapestry ring and diamond pave cabled cuff bracelet, satin red peep-toe slingbacks, and a cream and gold snakeskin clutch. The hair (which me-thinks is a fab wig) looks good and her makeup is pretty. As a whole, this outfit suits her frame and is not too over-the-top. I probably would have worn different colored shoes so that there would be some fun contrast, but she still looks good. Steal.
