Newly re-married "Glee" and "RHOA" star Nene Leakes was among the celebs who attended the Pre-BET Awards Celebration Dinner Hosted By Debra L. Lee at Milk Studios in Los Angeles last night.
Nene brought along her "I Dream of Nene" co-star and husband twice over Gregg Leakes as she was quick to display her 10-carat diamond wedding band and 15.2-carat ring. Wowzers!
Singer Jordin Sparks rocked a body hugging black ensemble with hot pink sandals.
Jay Ellis of BET's "The Game" popped up on the carpet.
Singer Elle Varner, who hosted BET's rooftop pool party on Friday, worked a purple sequined dress.
She posed it up alongside Jordin and Michelle Williams on the grey carpet.
Michelle Williams recently released her new "If We Had Your Eyes" single. And spent some time promoting it at the dinner:
She attended with songwriter and producer Harmony Samuels.
Angela Simmons wore an interesting outfit complete with geometric shapes and sparkling pumps.
Russell Simmons was also spotted at dinner.
And he has a NEW model girlfriend! We're shocked because the dark-brown sister is a big departure from the type of model we normally see Uncle Russell with....
"RHOA" star Cynthia Bailey, who posed with husband Peter Bailey, recently disclosed that she'll be undergoing surgery on the next season of the series. And she's keeping her mystery ailment to herself until then...
While on the carpet, Michelle got a kiss on the cheek from the original-Shaft star Richard Roundtree. It looks like Richard is still a ladies' man.....
Sitcom chick Tichina Arnold smiled for the cameras while rocking a gorgeous tan.
Best-selling author Tyrese posed with his artist Lyndriette Kristal Smith. Wouldn't be surprised if these two pop up "dating" soon.
Soul Ties star Leon (the father of Cynthia Bailey's daughter) was seen at the party.
TV personality Wayne Brady posed alongside "Apollo Live" judge Doug E. Fresh.
"The Real" co-host Adrienne Bailon wore a sexy body hugging black dress. She's got this booty pose down to a tee doesn't she?
MC Lyte has signed on for a new BET reality series called "Hip Hop Sisters." Still thinking on whether we'll be catching that...
"Army Wives" star Ashanti wore a snakeskin cutout dress. And chick looked hot. Loving this dress. She attended with her sister Shia who was...more covered up than usual.
Singer Stephen Marley wore a floral print blazer. And only he could pull it off.

Nelly, who just dropped the "Get Like Me" single, was also there to play co-host of the event.
"Raising Whitley" star Kim Whitley threw up the deuces in her blue lace dress.

Comedian Sherri Shepherd arrived with husband Lamar Sally. She will be starring with Chris Rock in his next film Finally Famous.
Judge Greg Mathis was there for the festivities.
"Being Mary Jane" producer Mara Brock Akil attended and looked to be almost makeup free. We love when fab chicks show their natural gorgeousness.

"Let's Stay Together" star Erica Hubbard lit up the place with all these sparkles.
Actress Demetria McKinney was also there.
