2009 ESPY Awards Red Carpet

The 2009 ESPY Awards went down last night.  And it's the Oscars for athletes and prom for the wives, groupies, jumpoffs, and those who want to be.  Serena Williams rocked a teal gown and looked pretty nice.

Her sister Venus looked fabulous in this blue Mara Hoffman gown.

Um, WTF?  This was just not a good look for Vanessa Bryant.  She and her hubby Kobe hit the carpet last night of course. And while he looked cute as usual, this pants suit Vanessa was rocking makes her look preggers and it's just not a cute look.

And former Secretary of State Condeleeza Rice hit the red carpet looking nice...in red.  I'm kinda loving that she's hitting the ESPY red carpet.  She's a huge sports fanatic by the way.

Lots more pics when you read the rest....

Did Sam Jackson match his glasses to his shirt?

Evander Holyfield hit the carpet.

Gold medalist runners Angelo Taylor and LaShawn Merritt hit the carpet.

NBA baller Josh Powell--who's been caught up in baby mama drama this year--showed his face.

NFL Cornerback Darrelle Revis was there.

Oh hey cutie.  He's New Orleans Saints baller Marques Colston.

T.O. was there of course.

Carmelo Anthony hit the carpet solo--sans his fiance LaLa.  I'm feeling his linen suit and teal jacket too.

Wyclef and Mike Tyson kicked it on the red carpet.

And of course Mike brought along his new bride.

Lisa Leslie was there in this sparkly number.  Makeup looked a mess though.

Nice look for 'Rena.

Deion Sanders' daughter Deiondra Sanders hit the carpet.

Olympic swimmer and medalist Cullen Jones was there.

Condi kicked it with John Singleton.

Kendra and her man Hank Baskett were there to show off the baby bump.

Yeah...still not feeling this Vanessa.

Derek Fisher and his wife hit the carpet.

What's that on your head Shawn Merriman?

Rashida Jones looked cute.

And NFL baller Vernon Davis hit the carpet.

Inside the show:

Fun times.

Condi Rice looked fantastic,

Condi Rice looked fantastic, as she always does in reds. However, a couple of points. She was offered the San Francisco 49'ers job by the York Family, who have run the franchise into the ground, but she did not accept. She remains a tenured professor at Stanford in preparation for the fall term. She signed with William Morris the afternoon of Obama's inauguration and got out of town to fly to NY, and then to Tampa to attend the Super Bowl. She basically does speeches and some media, but has been rumored to be interested in a sports management position on the West Coast, possibly with the NFL. She was always interested in the Commissioner's position, but that one's locked up for at least the next five years. In order to be seriously considered to be commissioner, she'd have to run a team for a few years, and only the Raiders and the Niners are close enough to her to suffice, so expect to see Rice skipper one of those teams in the near future, probably the Niners, as Al Davis has mucked up the Raiders but good.

Kobe's wife is not

Kobe's wife is not pretty...she is mexican trash witha ged who lucked up on a "oreo" ball player. Kobe should be ashamed of himself. All the beautiful classy black women out here and you chose that?

Hey Cullen Jones! Well Ok..

Hey Cullen Jones! Well Ok.. That first shot of Kendra was not flattering. Dude,that's just a clue to how she gonna look as she ages... Anywho...Mello did look clever. Venus & Serena very nice. I always love my man Derek Fisher & his lovely wife. Kobe fine/sadistic ass is not very nice. His smile is a smirk. Now he KNOW DAMN WELL that outfit Vannessa has on did not look normal in the titty area. Mike Tyson is a monster.... Sorry.

Manny: Yall are such

Manny: Yall are such haters!! FYI while Condi Rice was in her second last year as secretary of state she was offered a job as the new NFL Commissioner which by the way for all those who dont know is the highest ranking position in all of American Sports. However she turned down the position in order to complete her term. Her father was a basketball and football coach his entire life and she was the only child so u pushed her into loving sports. POINT BLANK!! She knows much more about sports than 99% of all yall females commenting on how good Carmelo Anthony look. Can u define the tuck rule?! I thought so! SO PLS KEEP UR IGNORANT OPINIONS ABOUT A SUBJECT U KNOW NOTHING ABOUT 2 URSELVES. AIIGHT =) Well tell em now! LOL

serena looked nice from the breast on up. only women with toothpick shapes can pull off a pleated chiffon dress. this look made her look huge WTF is up with vanessa's boobies? they look like they were trying to escape! oh my. she get's a definite "kick back" with that outfit. she trying too hard. soo over dressed damn. carmello was the best dressed of the evening. that's the finest i've ever seen of him. leave samuel alone. he has earned the right to dress how he wants. many of the shoes the men were rockin looked cheap (mike tyson, evander and derrelle revis) wild pair??? t.o. deserves a "kick back" as well. suede shoes in the summer??? what was up w/ his slacks? someone call a tailor a.s.a.p. for t.o., mike tyson annnnnnnd evander venus finally looks like a woman instead of a tranny from the neck up

Ms. T.: I’m trying to

Ms. T.: I’m trying to figure out how Condaskeeza is attending awards shows as opposed to being on trial somewhere…it’s killing me how Bush and Friends just screwed up this country and they are all out and about like shit didn’t happen.But a 18 year old black boy can be caught with 2 crack rocks and have his entire life ruined by the system. Oh and Vanessa looks like a hoe. Conda what? How dare you go there about Condi...if you put Bush on trial put the whole damn govt on trial. SMDH at you daring to attempt to demean Condi and what she is...you must not be black calling Condi a skeeze

Venus and Condi look

Venus and Condi look absolutely fab! Glad to see them out of their norm and looking wonderful Vanessa - just proves what I say, money doesn't not equal class. She looks like a broke down illegal who grabbed that fit in the .99 cents store and didn't have change for a proper fitting bra. Just gross. And she has no excuse...no mirrors up in that damn house? If my dude let me go out with areola showing...no no no no nono

SuckaFree: Neva a hater,

SuckaFree: Neva a hater, but Serena does not look good. She looks like a silver back and that dress makes her look fat. I think a lot of people are on the .On the other hand, her sister ROCKED IT! I don’t think people give her enough . Venus has a classy way about her while Serena is your average ’round the way girl.Big for the talent but don’t try to make her out to be a beauty queen! No comment on your ignorance. I can not stand that ish. YOU ARE WILLIE LYNCH's DREAM!!!! She look like a "round the way girl". What the fuck does that mean..... Man, Oh man, every time I see people saying stupid shit as such, I am reminded that the eurocentric society has done a huge number on our community.

Vanessa is beautiful and you can't take that from her but some women are vicious and you don't want to give away that your boo has to look at cellulite. Tell me why does she have that when you could give up a whole floor of your house to 24hr fitness if you wanted to. and to say Serena looks pretty good is a understatement she looks fab! and she has that I feel beautiful glow LOVE it. Get ya boy Serena he looks goOD

So I never thought I would

So I never thought I would say this about a dude rocking a TEAL sportcoat on a day not Easter Sunday. But um, Carmelo looks scrumptious. He definitely has the swagger and smile to pull that outfit off. I also bet he has a big ego ;-) *Hi-fives with Lala*

WOW! Serena looks really

WOW! Serena looks really gorgeous here, love that color. I also really like Venus here too. Vanessa Bryant is just gross, I hate her hair, her nails , everything is sooooo tacky, and she known in LA as a total biatch. Even Kendra looks classier then that skank.

I personally found Vanessa's

I personally found Vanessa's outfit to be tacky as well but he if attention was what she wanted mission accomplished. That being said how is it Kobe's fault she wore that outfit for all we know he probably told her it was awful and she still chose to wear it anyways. If she didn't like the outfit she wouldn't have worn it that simple. Ah well.

Neva a hater, but Serena does not look good. She looks like a silver back and that dress makes her look fat. I think a lot of people are on the wagon. On the other hand, her sister ROCKED IT! I don't think people give her enough credit. Venus has a classy way about her while Serena is your average 'round the way girl. Big ups for the talent but don't try to make her out to be a beauty queen!

Vanessa looks a hot mess as ususal and Kobe is stupid as ususal. He married the trash he wanted and had to have. I hope the children are not trashy like her when they get older. I always knew she was trash but I thought she was really trying to change her ways, but i guess wrong. I am sorry Lebron did not come. all the negative attention must be getting to him.

The William's sisters Killed

The William's sisters Killed it! They look fabolous in everyway. I love that look of Serena dress, it fits her body type perfectly and Venus is just beautiful, I love that dress! I didn't even know that was her, wow! I like Kendra's dress, she does look good preggers. And for the most part the men looked fab. and stepped up there game. Love seeing men in suits and ties. Even though Samuel needs to update his closet, I swear we saw that jacket before. As for Vanessa, sorry but she looks like a CHEAP SLUT, not cute at all because her body type doesn't go with the dress. Kobe probably thought his wife was hot and would have put all the other women to shame but that backfire! No class whatsoever!

WTF Vanessa got on?????????

WTF Vanessa got on????????? Shame on you Kobe for not telling your wife she looks a HOT ASS MESS!!!! She only takes away from your shine. Damn shame!! That woman probably dosen't have any friends because I'm sure someone would have said something. Her husband is worth millions and she looks like a sparkling Mexican hooker from the corner brothel.
