Mashonda Pops Up At Swizzy & Alicia's Party?+Whitney Sings For Oprah

Mashonda proved she's a class act the other night.  She showed up to her soon to be ex-hubby Swizz Beatz' surprise birthday party at Kush Lounge right after the VMAs.  Even though the party was being thrown by his mistress turned official girl Alicia Keys. Swizz--who turned thirty just 2 weeks ago--and Mashonda have been dogging each other out int he media about this divorce, but it looks like they've made nice somewhat.  Apparently the party was a surprise for Swizzy, but he found out last minute and invited Mashonda.  And she surprisingly showed up with Kanye's ex-fiance Alexis.  Here's the tea our source at the party tells us went down:
Swizz invited Mashonda late that night because it was a surprise party. When she walked in, all the family and friends of the former couple greeted hee with their mouths wide open and in shock. They showed her much love. They just seemed so thrilled that all the drama was over.
And about the Mashonda and Alicia interaction:
Alicia and her family were in total shock as well. Mashonda danced for a while and had a drink with Estelle and Sean Paul. The beauty of the night was that Mashonda walked over to Swizz and gave him a b-day hug, then shook Alicia's hand. It was so fly to see Mashonda be such a class act. Jay-Z offered her and Alexis a ride in his security's truck to their next destination since they were leaving out at the same time. Mashonda and Swizz have a great and very unique relationship now. He knows what kind of woman he had and I can tell he's not trying to lose her completely.

The NY Post reports spotting Mashonda at this party as well. Gotta love it. Video of Whitney on "Oprah "yesterday when you read the rest...

YBF FASHION BIT: Rachel Roy

New York Fashion Week kicks off this Thursday. And this year we'll be doing more fashion bits than usual to coincide with one of the biggest weeks of fashion in the world. YBF was offered the fabulous opportunity to preview Rachel Roy's brand new line for Macy's . And our NY correspondent Kisha put her former Rock and Republic fashion executive expertise to good use and tested out the goods for the YBF reader fashionistas. Here's her take: I have always been a fan of Rachel Roy’s eponymous line Rachel Roy sold at fine retailers and select online sites. However, with retail prices between $500- $1200, it wasn’t quite in my budget. So when I heard that Rachel Roy was debuting a more moderate collection at Macy’s stores, I was excited to check it out! Not only did I view the collection but I had the pleasure of putting together a few outfits to showcase the line to the fabulous readers of TheYBF.com. Lucky me! The Rachel Rachel Roy collection retails from $59 - $299 and includes everything from t-shirts to jumpers and cropped denim jackets. With artistic displays and vintage lamps, the Rachel Roy section resembles that of a bedroom. There is something warm about the area. It’s as though your big sister handpicked these items for you and strategically placed them so that you could go crazy without feeling intimidated. The collection is true to Roy’s signature style – timeless, sophisticated and classy. White, black and tan colors dominate the collection, with hints of color in purple patterned tops and jackets. Each piece can be paired with another item from the collection. Plush tees and tanks, ultra soft leggings and tailored blazers make the line universal. I personally fell in love and went home with a black dress called “The 24 hr dress” and a boyfriend cardigan that I plan to live in. She doesn’t skimp on quality in the collection either. Expect superior fabrics and great fits. Although there are some awesome pieces in Macy's, I was disappointed when I didn’t see some of the more funky items that I previewed in magazines. I wondered if these were just fashion pieces created to tease. Not quite – Roy is opening a ‘pop up’ store in Soho. The shop opens on September 10th and will only be open for 10 days! So, yes there is a catch… Look out for bold printed dresses, jewelry and handbags retailing from $40-$199 and footwear at $79-199. There are some definite Fall essentials in the collection. Don’t miss it! More pics of Kisha in a few pieces from the new Rachel Roy line when you read the rest...

Serena and Venus Williams have pretty much shut down the game of tennis for anyone else.  So why not make history elsewhere?  The sisters just became the first African American females to own a part of a NFL franchise.  They copped part of the Miami Dolphins: "I am so excited to be part of such a renowned organization," says Serena. "Having spent so much of my childhood in the area, being involved with a staple of Miami culture is a huge honor. We look forward to many championships and much success together with the Miami Dolphins." Agrees Venus, "I am honored to be a partner in the Miami Dolphins franchise and thankful to owner Stephen Ross for allowing Serena and I to be part of Miami Dolphins history." The tennis stars are joining Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez and Gloria and Emilio Estefan in becoming limited ownership partners in the franchise.  Loves it.
