These YBF chicks are new moms, professionals, wives, and more...and they spent their time before today's annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon getting it right and tight with celebrity fitness trainer Jeanette Jenkins.

Yesterday afternoon on the rooftop of the L'Hermitage Hotel in Beverly Hills, plenty of YBF chicks hit up the Nike Fuel Band Rooftop Yoga Sculpt Workout for the Essence Black Women in Hollywood luncheon.  With the help of celeb trainer Jeanette Jenkins, all of the women received a NikeFuel Band as they enjoyed a Yoga Sculpt class...topped off with spa treatments and breakfast.  Nice!

In attendance: (l-r in pic above) Editor-in-Chief of Essence Magazine Constance White, Nia Long, Robi Reed (leading Hollywood Casting Director), Anika Noni Rose, Kelly Rowland, Eva Marcille, Kimberly Elise, Jeanette Jenkins & Nicole Ari Parker.

Nicole also handed out her new Save Your Do hair bands she created with hubby Boris Kodjoe.  And the ladies kept it cute even while sweating it out.

 

Actress (and newlywed) Jurnee Smollett also hit up the event.

Nia's looking great after birthing 3-month-old Kez Sunday.

NIKE FUEL measures your daily athletic movement and calculates your Nike Fuel earned for the day, calories burned, steps per day and more.

Fab!  Today all these ladies and plenty more will be in attendance at the annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood luncheon honoring Kerry Washington, Octavia Spencer, Paula Patton, & Pam Grier at the Beverly Hills Hotel

Beautiful to see sisters coming together on a positive tip and uplifting one another with smiles, hugs, and being healthy (no drink throwing, fussing up a storm with their veins popping out of their necks ugh). Just classy ladies. One thing: where's Sanaa Lathan? (I'm not even going to front she is my "girl crush" for real)

Congratulations Mr White man

Congratulations Mr White man for being the most SAVAGE, INHUMANE, UNCONTROLLABLE, UNTAMABLE, DEVIANT TROGLODYTE on the face of the fucking planet!!! You crakkkas had one of the worst type of cattle slavery in history , were you robbed the people of their language, their culture, they way of life, YOU BREED THEM!!!!!!But you want credit for so called "freeing the slaves" but afterward put JIM CROW LAWS ON THE PEOPLE. THANK YOU MR WHITE MAN And the civil war wasn't about slavery JACK ASS ofcourse alot of you whites and ignorant negros may think so, but the Civil War was about the north being afraid that the south's breaking off would take away from the alternate line of production that the south cotton and north textile mills had created. The war was started to ensure that they did not lose their organizations.
