Passion Crush GABRIELLE UNION covers World’s Most Beautiful 3D Magazine (behind the scenes)

Hello My Loves,

I’d like to make your afternoon a little extra moist ;).

And if you think I’m referring to the weather, then you don’t know the Passions like you need to.  Become acquainted.

Passion Crush Gabrielle Union is covering YES, WMD: World’s Most Beautiful and we have the behind the scenes pics.  And every Passions devotee will agree, Gaby is more than an appropriate choice for such an honor.  Divine, sensual chocolate, her beauty is natural, timeless and just hot.


My personal favorite.  (super sigh…..).


2012 Essence Women of Hollywood Luncheon

And, we’re back!!!

To ease our way into the work week, here are some pics of some beautiful black Divas taken from a positive, uplifting event that took place last week (February 23rd) in Hollywood.  Yes, some of the Passion favorites are in the mix so enjoy.


Anika Noni Rose.

Miss Kerry Washington.

Kerry can do no wrong as far as the Passions is concerned :).

Viola Davis is definitely ‘serving’ with this natural look.  And we love how she’s repping it too!

(Passions Crush) Sharon Leal!

Hey Paula, are the pregnancy rumors true?  (Feeling the choice in polish color, P).

Jordin Sparks.

OMG it’s Jennifer Beals. I REALLY miss the L-Word :(.  We need to see more of you, Jennifer.  You are totally crush material here at the Passions!!!

Jilly from Philly.

Tatyana Ali.  I have to say it.  The cleavage is stunning.

Tracee Ellis Ross.

Nicole Ari Parker has gone natural too :)!

Holly Robinson Peete.

Sheryl Lee Ralph.

Lynn Whitfield.

And below are some group photos.  The Passions is ashamed that she couldn’t identify all of these talented young ladies.  If you happen to know the names of those I could not label, please, send me an email and I’ll make the correction.  Thanks, All :).

Sharon Leal, Kim Wayans, Tasha Smith, Siedah Garrett.

Naturi Naughton, Kelly Rowland, Jeanette Jenkins and Anika Noni Rose.

Vanessa Bell Calloway, Tatyana Ali, (ID please?), Jurnee Smollett, Yvette Nicole Brown.


Robyn Crawford on Whitney Houston

I’m sure many of you, like the Passions, are still filled with restless emotion and a profound sadness over Whitney’s passing.  One person that crossed my mind immediately when I heard the news, was Robyn Crawford. Esquire featured her sentiments in a moving, loving, very tender obit.

Robyn Crawford on Whitney in ESQUIRE.

Finding photos of Robyn Crawford and Whitney together is next to impossible but I managed to dig a few up.

More recent pics of Robyn and a friend.

And The Daily Beast has a rather raw portrayal of Whitney and her relationship with Robin.  I cannot begin to imagine the amount of grief Robyn must be feeling.  The Passions holds her in our prayers.  We ALL should, because losing someone whom you’ve had such a profound and deep connection with is beyond difficult to conceive.

THE DAILY BEAST: Whitney Houston:  Anatomy of  a Lesbian Rumor.

And yet, here’s another interesting look into Whitney’s and Robyn’s relationship.  The Passions is hopeful, just like many of you, that the history/herstory of their life together, no matter how complicated, will not be erased.

Article in The Daily Mail.


And below are a few more photos of our Angel, Miss Whitney Houston.  Nippy – We hope you find all the peace you deserve and more up in Heaven.


Whitney Houston: RIP 1963 – 2012

Coming here with a very heavy heart right now.

I’m just about speechless tonight, Passion-nistas.  A remarkable woman with a voice of an angel has left the building.

Whitney Houston meant so much to me – because I came “out” around the time of her very first album.

I played this album over and over and over again.  I remember listening to hidden meanings in “You Give Good Love,” and “Saving All My Love for You.”  I played her so much that my boyfriend at the time (yes, boyfriend) would hide the album from me.  I swear for God I bought it THREE times because I couldn’t find it.  He admitted to taking them later.  He must have known.  And, frankly, deep inside my heart I believed when I heard her sing these lyrics:

Never stopping, I was Always searching

For that  perfect Love

the kind


I KNEW she was talking about me.  I was convinced of this.  Whitney and me had something very special in common – and it wasn’t singing.

Whitney Houston, RIP.

Here’s Whitney doing the Star Spangled Banner like NO ONE ELSE CAN and probably never will – in 91.

Her very last performance.  So so very sad.


Janet Jackson in LAX Looking Luscious!!!

Good Morning Babies,

So we know I had to follow-up the Superbowl post with another post featuring the Queen of Passions crushes – MISS JANET.  We also know that Janet Jackson is promoting Nutrisystem.  Well the paps caught a glimpse of her and her ‘new body’ while she was moving through LAX the other day.  All I can say is that I wish she moves that new body all over me ;)!!!


Okay.  The boots.  Giving me LIFE!!  And the Birkin is NUTS!!!

That jacket?  Damn…..

Viola Davis covers L.A. Times Magazine

Good Evening Sexy People,

Now the Passions is feeling some kind of way about that film The Help, Viola Davis and her nomination for an Oscar.

However, when I saw her cover on L.A. Times Magazine, I was forced to forgive everything because she looked so deliciously fierce and positively GORGEOUS, and just TASTY.  Take a peek at a natural sister.

WERK, Gottdamnit.  (check the shoe game, PROPER!!!)

Giving FACE (and dreamy, creamy lips…..).
