Celebs Hit The Black Enterprise Oscar Week Event...And Is Malinda Williams Preggers?

   Black Enterprise celebrated Oscar Week last night with an All-Star gathering to honor the fabulous Ruby Dee.  And YBF snitches at the event noticed that Malinda Williams and her fiance D-Nice strategically hit the red carpet when many folks weren't watching.  And then suspiciously kicked this prom style pose which looks very much like they're covering up a possible baby bump.  Time will tell...   Ruby Dee was recognized as an icon who has paved the way for women of color in the performing arts.  Nice.   And damn if that Star Jones isn't looking less bobbleheadish every day.    President and CEO of PrimeTime Omnimedia Marilyn Crawford ricked an interesting choice of dress. Joe Torry made an appearance. Actress/Model Nahtasha Budhi clearly didn't know this was an upscale after 5 event. Lisa Raye was there in her signature white dress: I know this chick's closet would blind me. Taraji was there in a bright blue coat. YBF chicks Jennifer Freeman and Kyla Pratt kicked it at the event: Fab looks for both ladies. Shaun Robinson made an appearance. Married couple D'ondre Whitfield and Salli Richardson were there. Willie Mac was there. Della Reese, Ja'net DuBois, and Beverly Todd came out to support. What is your secret Kiki Shepard?  No...really.  She actually lookes younger than she did when I was 5 watching Apollo.
Photog: Turner
And Dawn Lewis made an interesting appearance.

[quote comment="39745"]1. Why does Ruby Dee always look like she's about to cuss someone out? 2. That Budhi girl looks like she came from an escort service. 3. That CEO knew better than to wear that tacky ass dress!!![/quote] That kinda sums it up for me... That CEO needs to sit down. Doesn't she have friends, a sister, a bellhop even? Somebody coulda intercepted her on the way to the event. She look like a giant tub of butter. Better can be done Marilyn Crawford, better can be done...

[quote comment="39729"] Ms. Crawford looks like Mr. Crawford. And it looks like she made that dress out of curtains. :( I still don't know how Diamond off The Players Club became the 1st lady of anything....not hatin' just confused. [/quote] Girl you know you WRONG for making me laugh so hard at work... I almost choked!!! Ms Crawford did look a tad masculine and "Diamond off The Players Club" ... LOL. Still loves Lisa Raye though :)

Star looks like an old

Star looks like an old newscaster. All that time on TV has her using that studio make-up a little too much. I actually like her dress though. I just wish she'd invest in some Spanx... makes a world of difference.

Ms. Ruby Dee? Goddess! - Why

Ms. Ruby Dee? Goddess! - Why does Della Reese insist upon dressing like draperies? - I wonder if Dawn Lewis is still with her physically abusive husband? - Salli Richardson looks happy. - Recall Richardson once dated L.A. Reid and Matthew McConaughey?

Natasha...you always talking

Natasha...you always talking about 'suspect' baby bumps, how come you didn't say anything about LeBron James and Savannah's pic at the NBA All Star game. Savannah had on a cream very maternity-ish dress on with a very suspect bump and you didn't make a peep out of it. According to MediaTakeout it is 'rumored' that she is expecting 'again'. Dang she jus has that last baby...

Dang! Star Jones looks

Dang! Star Jones looks great! Holy cow. And LisaRaye looks super Classy. Go girls! ---- I love me some Dawn Lewis but she looks like she's wearing my grandmother's couch. You know the one, in the front parlor, with the plastic on it. The one we can't sit on. That couch. ----- This Marilyn chick looks like she's a contestant in the Little Miss Sunshine pageant. Seriously. That is the sort of get-up those scary little 8 year old girls with all the make-up and the big hair wear in those scary little pageants. Yikes ----- Salli Richardson is a Goddess. Love. Her. I can't wait for the next season of Eureka! on the Sci-Fi channel. She rocks my world on that show.

Kyla Pratt...please steam

Kyla Pratt...please steam that dress out a little more before you wear. Jennifer Freeman...please tone down the eye makeup. It's too harsh for your age and skin tone! Star Jones...please cover your arms at all times. The twaddle underneath is never cute, especially with the way you lost your weight. Dondre and Sally...when are y'all gonna have some cute little Whitfields running around? Quit playing!

MissPriss's picture

Ms. Crawford's skin tone does

Ms. Crawford's skin tone does not work with the dress, first off. If you are that color, you need to stick with colors in the magenta, jade, blue, purple, coral family. And her mammaries are just too large -- they are straining. Now as for Starlet Marie, she's getting there but the dress needs to be a size bigger. I can see the strain in the hips.

I'm just shaking my head while scrolling down. What in the sam hell were some of these folks thinking? I mean really...what were they thinking? Especially Marilyn Crawford. She's got too much money to come out of the house with a dress that my 15 year-old niece would wear to a school dance. Not a cute look!
