New York Knicks Tyson Chandler Bares All For ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue

I saw this picture on Instagram and knew I had to share with the ladies!

New York Knicks center Tyson Chandler and 26 athletes bare all for ESPN The Magazine’s Body Issue, scheduled to be released July 11th.

When asked why he decided to pose for the Body Issue, Chandler states:

I think it gives the average person a good look at athletes’ bodies and why we are able to do the things we do. I think a lot of people are curious about it. I wanted to allow people to look at my body and see why I’m able to do the things I do on the court. Also, it’s a very artistic shoot, and seeing that in past issues made me want to do it.

Grammy Awards 2012 Best Dressed

Last night was the biggest night in the music industry! I’m not sure why, but it felt like a lot of people were missing on the red carpet this year. I’ll admit I thought overall the red carpet was underwhelming, but there were a few ladies that stood out.  Below is a list of those I thought shut the red carpet down!


A lot of people loved her look, but there were some who weren’t a fan. Personally, I think she killed it! Yes, the dress shows a lot of skin, but it’s Rihanna. What did you expect.  She co-designed the Armani dress and with her body, she definitely pulled this off. Let’s remember, this is the Grammys. The dress should make a statement.  Don’t act like you don’t remember Jennifer Lopez and that barely there green Versace dress in 2000.

Kelly Rowland

After seeing Ms. Rowland on Access Hollywood last week talk about Grammy options, I had guessed that she was going to wear a bright color.  However, she looked gorgeous in this Alberta Ferretti blush gown with silver embroidery. She paired the look with Lorraine Schwartz earrings.  As always, her makeup was flawless.

Carrie Underwood

I don’t think we’ve every seen Carrie Underwood have a bad red carpet moment. She is a beautiful woman and always looks great! For the Grammy Awards, she wore a stunning white sequin-and-tulle gown by Gomez Gracia.  The dress covered in the front and adds drama with a cut out back.

Corinne Bailey Rae 

This dress is a statement and requires minimum to no jewelry.  With this dress, I’d probably wear at minimum a ring, but Corinne is able to pull off this look with no jewelry fabulously.  The dress is by one of my favorite designers, Christian Siriano. Can he ever do wrong?!? And check out her shoes!!

Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne looked great at the Grammys last night.  She wore a sparkling silver one-shoulder gown by Tony Ward couture.  Although the dress closely matched her hair, the look worked!! Not everyone could pull that off and she did effortlessly.

Jesse J.

This is what I expect to see at the Grammys. Sparkle!!! Jesse J. rocked a mirrored gown by Julien MacDonald and looked beautiful.


Adele channeled old Hollywood glam with the all black sequin gown by Giorgio Armani and flawless makeup.  She always looks great; I’m hoping this year we can see her in some color!!!

Who do you think was the best dressed at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards?

Has Reality TV Become The New Celebrity Trend?

On Monday, the entertainment blog sites posted news of Gospel duo Mary Mary landing their own reality series on WeTv which will aire March 2012.  The show will follow the sisters as they struggle to balance their careers and family life.  Sound familiar?

I’m sure it does because it seems like everyone has their own reality show these days following their lives as they balance career and family.  T.I. recently joined VH1, The Braxton’s are on their second season and Tia & Tamara had a successful season on the Style network. I’ll admit, I watch (and plan on watching) these shows, but I couldn’t help but wonder, is this the new norm for celebrities?

In an entertainment era that loves reality TV, is that the next career move for celebrities in order to stay relevant or promote upcoming projects?  I know for some, reality television is one of the many ways they are making money as they seek to revamp their careers. For others, reality TV is another venue they can add to their “brand.”  But for successful artists like Mary Mary, what is the reason for starring in their own show? Expand their fan base?

These days, when many reality shows are about fighting and foolishness, it is refreshing to see shows that are positive and aren’t very dramatic.  But celebrities having their own show can only go on for so long before that trend gets old. 

Do you think reality TV has become a new trend for celebrities? Why do you think so many celebrities have agreed to have their own reality shows? Which show will you be watching?

Seriously?? “I’m Very Rich B*tch” T-Shirts?!?!

A pic NeNe tweeted of her new t-shirts

Thanks to her exposure on “Celebrity Apprentice” Ms. NeNe Leakes is “rich” and she wants the whole world to know! On this season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, NeNe has announced on multiple occasions that she is rich.  She is working on a few business deals and because she is “flowing in dough” she even checked out a $9 million mansion in Miami.

So to continue capitalizing on her new fame, she has decided to follow the footsteps of Evelyn Lozada (from Basketball Wives) and create her own line of t-shirts displaying her very own phrase she said to Sheree in a heated argument during Episode one, “I’m Very Rich B*tch.” *rolling my eyes* 

I’m not sure who told her to move forward with a t-shirt line, but real women (and men) who are wealthy do not need to walk around announcing it to the world! I’m not anywhere close to being rich but that’s one rule MOST people know!

When was the last time you heard Warren Buffet talk about the billions he is making? You don’t hear Kandi on The Real Housewives of Atlanta talking about how much money she has and you know she is wealthy! She used to be in Xscape and has written songs for a number of celebrity artists. Can we say royalties!

NeNe is currently selling her Swarovski crystal t-shirts for $150.   I hope I don’t ever see anyone wearing this shirt! It’s tacky and ridiculous. If I ever do stumble upon someone wearing this shirt, I’d have to wonder, “if you are really that rich you wouldn’t have to wear a shirt that says so.”

 When people making new money have a few hundred thousand or even a million, they think they’re rich.” - Kandi
