Jurnee Smollet & Family Party For A Good Cause+50 Cent's New Fragrance

Jurnee Smollet was spotted out partying with her family and her good friend Hydeia Broadbent's 25th b-day during Big Tigger's Celebrity weekend this past weekend.   You may remember Hydeia's story as she was born with AIDS and told she wouldn't live past 3:

Cuteness.  And yes, the Jurnee look-alike is indeed her older sister.  They had their own show back in the 90's called "On Our Own". Word is, all the Smolletts are shopping a gritty drama that they created and are starring in. Loves it.

And 50 Cent is on the brink of yet another business venture.  He's teaming up with Lighthouse Beauty to create a fragrance--the first launch from the company headed by 50's manager Chris Lighty and others. Due this fall, the men’s scent, dubbed Power by 50 Cent, reportedly will launch first at Macy’s. 50 is an equity partner in the venture. Very nice...

Wow! I can't believe she is

Wow! I can't believe she is 25 already. I think the first time I saw her was on Jerry Springer's show. I use to watch Jurnee and her siblings show, didn't stay on long. I also remember when her and her sister were in Salt n Pepa's 'Express Yourself' video.

LO: Yea she did marry that

LO: Yea she did marry that little boy on the show, they wanted to experience that opportunity. The boy died, it was so sad, I think he had cancer. I’m glad she’s doing well and everyone else. I didn't know the boy died awwwww so sad.

OMG! I seriously almost cried

OMG! I seriously almost cried at the fact that Hydeia proved the world wrong and celebrated her 25th birthday! I did a report on her in high school and had the entire class tearing up. I don't have HIV/AIDS, but her story really inspired me and I kept up with her story for a while. I even tried to get her to come speak at my high school. I am 25 myself and I can honestly say I am proud of her and her strength (even though I have never met her)! She has grown into a beautiful young woman!

Just playing devil's

Just playing devil's advocate, but... If this were a "non-black" site and people were using the were ape and gorilla to describe a black person, people were be calling it racist. Why are were referring to one of our own in that way?

With all of the advance

With all of the advance bilogical technology these days, I hope Miss Hydeia becomes a Mrs. with a beautiful brotha,any man period, and has her a lovely family!! Go GIRL!! I remember that awards show(either Essence or NAACP) and Mariah gave her an award and she was like "Me and Mariiiiahhhhh" and they busted out laughing. That was the same show where Chris Rock gave her and her mom the award he won!! God Bless them!!!!

StopHATING: What is up with

StopHATING: What is up with you hating ass people? If you spent more time working out the kinks in your own lives instead of criticising ever little thing another man does I guarantee you’ll be a much happier person. Get that money Fif and continue shitting on these good-for-nothing, no-ambition having idiots. Our Security allows us to give credit where credit is due - Good Look ( suit, background etc. ) Wow - I'll be able to Smell The POWER. Whoo!

CALLEN: I remember her on

CALLEN: I remember her on Maury Povich Show before a lot of the nonsense on their now. But Hydeia got married to a little caucasian boy name Tyler I think. Ohh I cried!! I forgot about that, I cried then too!! So funny how many of us remember and were touched by this little girl. I even called my SIL and asked her if she remembered her and she said yes. I still cannot get over that she is 25!!

Hydeia is 25?? OMG, I remember seeing her on Sally and the way she talked made me bawl my eyes out. I always wondered what happened to her and it feels so good to know she is alive and well. God IS good all the time!! :) Patty you go girl, getting that prize must have been awesome :) I am an artist, but the one thing I wish I could do is poetry. That is one talent that you either have it or you don't and I don't no matter how hard I try.

EvieAnnie: You are so lame

EvieAnnie: You are so lame for that. Stay Positive, Positive Patty. I just couldn’t ignore that ignorance…… Hey thanks for having my back. All I can do is pray for that person. If you can insult a complete stranger, you must be one sad person(something they will deny). I am Positive Patty bc I am happy with myself. A mean person is hiding sources of anger and taking it out on others.

Mizz M: i think it was

Mizz M: i think it was sweet that u shared that and hella cool to win 5 grand at any age! Thanks. It was my very first poem, so I was shocked out of my mind. It felt good though.

EvieAnnie: You are so lame

EvieAnnie: You are so lame for that. Stay Positive, Positive Patty. I just couldn’t ignore that ignorance…… There are some people who will show you their problems by criticizing a complete stranger. Someone who is mean for no reason is obviously hurting inside (something I'm sure they will deny). Happy people are happy with themselves, not because they find joy in putting others down.
