GIRLFRIENDS: Gabrielle Union & Mara Brock Akil Take A Hike

Actress Gabrielle Union spent some fitness time yesterday with Mara Brock Akil, the producer/director of the upcoming BET show "Single Black Female" she's shooting the pilot for soon.

 

Pics of the two fab chicks inside...

Two of our fave ladies!  41-year-old Mara Brock Akil, who writes/produces tv shows like "Girlfriends," "The Game" and the upcoming Sparkle movie, took some time away from her computer to get in a workout with her actress friend, 39-year-old Gabby Union, in Studio City, CA yesterday.  The in-shape twosome laughed it up in the parking lot after getting in a hike.

Gabby tweeted today: "Yesterday did a 2hr hike, today is a park workout...u don't need a fancy expensive gym to keep it tight...let's GO folks!"

A makeup free Gabby rocked her UnderArmour workout gear and still kept it cute.

Gabby's Good Deeds movie came in #2 at the box office during it's opening week last month.  And her next film Think Like A Man premieres April 20th.

Ms. Union also spent the weekend in Austin at SXSW to premiere her new independent film In Our Nature, where she plays the new girlfriend of a single father as they go on a complicated journey in their interracial relationship.  Check out the trailer below:

 

The synopsis: A portrait of two couples at a crossroads. An estranged father and son, both on the verge of starting new families, accidentally end up in the same country house with their girlfriends. As the weekend devolves into an awkward reckoning, both couples find themselves questioning their future.

Stop labeing folks. You

Stop labeing folks. You couldn't possibly know if what you are saying is true unless you were watching them in the act. She and some of the men you are likely talking about have spoken on that fact that they have been incorrectly labeled as an item when they were just friends. And for anyone she has dated, that is between them.

I'm Female, 22, and just this

I'm Female, 22, and just this Christmas had a brief encounter with a mature man. It was wonderful. We met via internet dating on this site: ---[Mi XedM A TCHing. C óM ]-It's where black white sing-les looking for someone to enjoy their lifestyle with. Come in and stay a while. Complete your profile. Post a message, a picture of yourself and check out the photo galleries. Give it a try, you will find someone you like here - ;) a good way to meet like-minded people, and he actually approached me first. It just so happens I like black man and he likes whtie woman around my age. We had an amazing day and later on he joined me at a hotel. It was like a fantasy come true. Amazing company, amazing sex too and a really warm and loving man. He will turn 36 this month, and my goodness what a connection we had that day. You could meet her/him at *** --- m'i'x'ed M'A'T'C'H' i n 'g '_c(0)m--- ****

I wish Mara had not let the

I wish Mara had not let the The Game become such a trainwreck. Its a waste of such good actors. That movie looks cool. We rarely see films about black people that just explores the relationship between a parent and child. Which is such a shame cuz we black folks have a lot of mess that can be explored in terms of those relationships. This movie looks well made and nothing like a Lifetime production. Maybe now we can see that Gabby can do something other than comedies.

It never ceases to amaze me

It never ceases to amaze me how people can find the smallest, most insignificant things to complain/hate about a person. Gabby has always been a beautiful black woman in my opinion, and since I am not privy to the details of her & Dwade's relationship, I can only form my opinion on the info provided to the general public. So as far as I'm concerned, she & Dwade look amazing together, and seem to have a sincere loving relationship! I wish them the best! I think her previous, as well as current career moves has shown her to be a smart business woman, who has managed to stay working in an increasingly hard industry for black women!! So all I have to say is continue to stay fab Gabby! You look awesome & from the interviews I've seen, you seem down to earth!!!

You might need one to cover your ugly face for that comment. These two women don't look drastically different without makeup. A lot of black women look the same without it.

Gabby is either super sweet &

Gabby is either super sweet & friendly or she is a Kiss Azz. She knows who to befriend. Tyler Perry is always putting her in 1 of him movies. Now, she is friends with Mara & getting her own show. It sounds like Gabby will play her typical snooty role.....as usual. The Game has really fell off, so I hope they bring it with the new show.l

This show will be a fail. I

This show will be a fail. I am sorry to say. Every show that Gabby was on failed. Now you want her to be a lead character. The creator of Grey Anatomy will have better success w/ Kerry Washington's show as a lead character. Yes I will watch a good actress like KW. When will people see Gabby does not have mass appeal. A lot of people like myself just don't like her. I still know married women who still won't support her in regards to her so called cheating when Dwayne W while he was still married. I for one support shows w/ black females/males that can act like: Regina King's show Southland. I will also support Kerry Washinton's show because she also can act. Why not ask people like Sanaa Lathan and other good black females actresse's to play in their own sit com. Bad actors no matter what color ANNOY me and Gabby is #1 on that list. She acts the same in everything she plays in. No range in her acting skills at all. I put her right down there w/ Tatyana Ali's bad show That Girl on TV 1 . Both are a waste of time and money!

I agree and b4 all the Union

I agree and b4 all the Union stans start calling me a hater let me just say I agree bcuz I sat thru her last attempt at acting in "FlashForward".....I hv seen more than a few of the movies she has been in and just my opinion....she CANNOT act......what is sad is that we can't state our opinions any more w/o some1 calling it hating.....I am not a puppet or a robot.....not everything is appealing 2 me....
Anonymous's picture

Well I hope for your own

Well I hope for your own sake, everything & everyone that is attached to you along with those other "married" women, that she was truely guillty of being the whore she was accused of being.... cuz in the event that she wasn't.... you all would have hated her...persecuted her...shunned her without cause... But hey I guess ok to tear people down based on rumors, lies, & maybes... good luck with that... but here's some truth you can bank on...you reap what you sow...and that's not just for husband still whores...but also HATERS...
