Congrats to Eve for Tying the Knot!

Eve is now a Mrs.!

Last weekend hip-hop star and actress Eve officially tied the knot! The former pitbull in a skirt wed her beau Maximillion Cooper, a British designer and Gumball 3000 race founder, in Ibiza, Spain on Saturday, June 14. Reports say the couple exchanged vows during sunset beach nuptials in front of guests who were asked to dress in elegant beach attire. A series of bonding events were carefully planned for guests to enjoy the days leading up to the ceremony including a pool party and champagne toast rehearsal dinner. [Read more...]

Love and Legacy: Remembering Ruby Dee + Ossie Davis

Loving + Living: A Young Ossie + Ruby

Like most of you, I was saddened to learn Ruby Dee passed away yesterday (June 11, 2014). Her work as an actress, philanthropist and civil rights activist made her a bona fide cultural icon. But her marriage to fellow actor Ossie Davis was equally as memorable as her acting career. In fact, the names Ossie and Ruby just roll off of our tongues like peanut butter and jelly. More Harlem than Hollywood, they were one of those couples in the public eye who genuinely seemed to like each other — it was refreshing and welcoming. Mr. TK (my hubby rocks!) reminded me, because I honestly had forgotten I even penned the post, about this of this blog piece I wrote in 2008 about Mrs. Ruby Dee. I smiled while reading it and I think you might, too. Here’s a snippet: [Read more...]

Marriage Matters – Meet the Hornes

Kam, Ricky and their three beautiful children are all smiles.

Hollywood is known for many things: cheesy celebrity home tours, beautiful palm trees, gigantic movie studios and microwave marriages. So when Triple B was approached to feature husband-wife duo, Kam and Ricky Horne, Jr. for Marriage Matters, a hefty dose of¬†skepticism arose. Kam knows the entertainment biz well. The stunning Los Angeles native began modeling and acting at the tender age of 13. The mother of three was a regular on the Tia & Tamera Show which aired on the E! Style Network, Bravo and Oxygen. Hubby Ricky is a writer/director/producer who has worked with industry notables like Kim Fields and Lindsay Lohan. The Hornes were refreshingly down to earth and candid about their ups and downs since saying “I Do” — dishing on everything from blending families, raising a special needs child and planning a wedding without supportive parents. Meet the Hornes: [Read more...]

Gabrielle Union, “Secret Children” & Judging Someone Else’s Love

Bridal Bliss? Gabrielle Union Faces Major Ridicule Days After Accepting Dwyane Wade's Proposal

Earlier this week, I posted the following note on my personal Facebook page:

LOL. So now that Wade reportedly fathered a child while he and Gabrielle were on a break, the ring that some folks were ooohing and awwing over and the holiday pics and video aren’t cute anymore. Funny indeed. Not saying I agree or disagree with either side but the commentary I’ve read on the subject from perfect people in their perfect relationships with perfect families is comical to say the least.
