It’s official, I’m a Kerry Washington stan. This admiration started more than a decade ago.Long before I was introduced to Olivia Pope, I was about Chenille and her around the way attitude. Chenille is the role, Kerry Washington played in “Save the Last Dance.” That movie came out 12 years ago, so I’ve been down for Kerry for a while now. Through those 12 years I’ve watched her lend her voice to political issues and stand up for civil liberties. Now she’s breaking barriers in Hollywood as the ultimate fixer in ABC’s hit show “Scandal.” Continue Reading »

Singing, ” It’s Friday night and the weekend’s here. I need to unwind, where’s the party, Mr. D.J?” Sweeties I had to take it back to 1993 with that one. YES!!! We made it through it the week, but getting to Friday has been draining. I was so tired I fell asleep early last night and missed Scandal. I know, I can’t believe I missed it either. Thank goodness ABC.com already had the episode online and I was able to catch the second episode.

Enough about my work week woes and let’s get into the latest in fashion, beauty, and pop culture. Here’s the rundown: Gwen Stefani is teaming up with OPI and Kate Moss is back with TopShop. Plus there are more collaborations in the works.  Get that and more in this edition of “The Rundown.” Continue Reading »

the rundown 2

Sweeties,

Yes GAWD, we made it to Friday.  The week started off great and then Congress couldn’t get their act together and we’re now in the middle of a government shutdown.  But that was  just the beginning.  I covered a story where a 15-year-old was arrested for allegedly shooting a 12-year-old in the mouth. YES, a 12-year-old.  We’re also in the middle of a Hurricane Watch.  And let’s not forget the shooting near the U.S. Capitol on Thursday. This has been a WILD week to say the least.

After covering such disturbing news this week, I needed to  switch things up and cover something lighthearted. Some of the celeb buzz that came out this week definitely  qualifies. Continue Reading »
