Last night, Gabrielle Union was her usual cheery self at Bar Marmont in Hollywood, California. The occasion? A launch party for Deleon Tequila. If you have Mediatakeout tell it, Gabrielle Union is pregnant with Dwayne Wade’s first baby. So either that glass in her hand is pure prop for the photo or Gabrielle knows just how to get baby Wade off to a wonderful start: hit the world buzzing. Or is that, hit it at the buzzer? That’s an off the backboard b-ball joke. Never mind.more..
You know the places, certainly know the faces. Last night Will Smith and Rosario Dawson were all smiles at the Mann Theater in Los Angeles. The red carpet was rolled out for the premiere of their new film Seven Pounds. Remember that? I wonder what seven pounds refers to. Does it tie into the surprise twist in the movie? If you have any interest in seeing this, you better be in a theater this weekend; once that quirk gets out you’ll find yourself, let’s say week two, watching the credits roll and thinking that was it? Kind of like knowing that Bruce Willis is Casper the Ghost in Sixth Sense or The Village is just off a six lane highway.more..
With Eddie Murphy reluctant to promote Meet Dave (he says.. he’s busy. Right.) Gabrielle Union has benefited by getting her time on the talk show circuit. Last week it was Regis and Kelly; yesterday she was on The Jimmy Kimmel Show. Even at seven minutes, I’m not sure if the interview was supposed to go so long.
Nas was on CP time; he was the musical guest and missed his first cue. So you get extra Gab time.
It’s been confirmed that Gabrielle Union is cast in Cadillac Records; you know, that new Beyonce movie in production. Maybe it’s me, but the advance buzz is making this look like Beyonce’s solo moment, like she’s taking on Etta James life the way Jamie Foxx did Ray Charles. Turns out, Beyonce is one of many, in a movie about Leonard Chess, the founder of Chess Records. The label launched the careers of Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Chuck Berry, and Etta James.
Jeffrey Wright is playing Muddy Waters.
Gabrielle Union snagged the role of Geneva Morganfield, Muddy Water’s wife.more..
Essence had a little chit-chat session with Nia Long, Sanaa Lathan and Gabrielle Union. Among other things they talked about gossip sites. Gabrielle Union is the one of that bunch who would most likely be seen on a gossip site. She had a lot to say.. here’s the exchange.
Gabrielle: Just last week somebody gave me a baby. This isn’t Perez Hilton or the White gossip people, these are women of color, specifically Black women who, for whatever reason, don’t like the company I keep.more..
