YBF Celebs Do Essence's Women In Hollywood Luncheon

The First Annual Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon went down yesterday afternoon. Jada Pinkett Smith and others were honored at the bash, held at the Beverly Hills Hotel, for their work in Hollywood and in the African-American community. I swear Tom just randomly appear at damn near every event for black folks.  And he always seems to be right over Willada's shoulders just peeking out at the right times.  I guess he was there to offer up some friendly words of support for Jada.  I just wonder if he took this opportunity to send some subliminal Scientology messages to the audience.  Y'all know that dude stays on recruit mode. Will gave an emotional tribute to his wife. How can you not love these two? Editor In Chief of Essence magazine Angela Burt Murray gave some words. Latanya Richardson was there. So was President of Essence Michelle E. Banks. A newly single Tracey Edmunds stepped out looking nice. I really hope this S-Curl is for a new movie role Will. Or favorite party hopper hit up the event: Gabby of course.  Looking fabulous as usual. Garcelle stepped out looking fab in a green trench dress. Ruby Dee was honored as well. What?  No white for Lisa Kerry Washington was there to speak a few words.  And looked oh so fabulous in Elie Saab Couture while doing so. I see Paula's baby bump is on disappear mode again. Denzel's wife Pauletta was there. Viv Fox still has that ultra surprised look at all times. Salli Richardson made an appearance. Suzanne de Passe was honored as well. Looking good Mrs. Jones. Holly Robinson Peete was there.

And so was Quincy Jones...scoping the scene for his newest PYT I'm sure. Y'all know how he does.

Star Jones must have been

Star Jones must have been reading this blog, because she finally busted out the turtleneck. My beautiful black sisters look exquisite, with the exception of LaTanya. I thought she was Rickey Smiley in drag. And Kerri's get-up is THA BIZ! Where can I get that skirt??

I'm getting sick of

I'm getting sick of Gabrielle, and I don't like her look here. It's very boring. I need a break from her. Lisa Raye looks fabolous. So glad she isn't wearing weight. The color looks great on her. Jada's hair and makeup is on point, but I'm not feeling the dress. I'm not feeling Paula P.'s dress either. It's too lil girlish Traci is killing it. I love her dress. Paulette and Salli look good.

paula def is not pregnant she

paula def is not pregnant she must have lost it cuz she wasn't pregnant long enough to have had it already. everyone looks fabu and still not sure what tom is doing on stage with Will he looks like some crazed maniac who's taking will hostage. love paula's dress, garcelle's coat, jada's dress is gorgeous. why is gabrielle at all these events, she looks nice but i feel as if she's jsut trying too hard to keep her name out there.

I have loved Will Smith prior

I have loved Will Smith prior to Fresh Prince! His love for his wife is so genuine. I hope other Hollywood couples are taking notes. I love it when we celebrate the accomplishments of our people, too! Awwww! And Soror Ruby Dee is amazing. I really hope she gets that Oscar!
