BET Awards 2012 – Passions Style – PLUS, Ms. Cissy Houston’s tribute to her Beloved Daughter Whitney

Well Hello Beautiful Ones,

Nice to see you :).  Missing you all something terrible!!!  But we’re back and on the case.  Got some images from the 2012 BET Music Awards.  We like to keep track of the Passion lovelies and other Chocolate Hollywood Honeys and here they are for your viewing pleasure.  Interested?  If so?  Enjoy :).


Eva Marcille looking just yummy.  As Always.

Angela Bassett.  Flawless.

(Mrs.) Meagan Goode.  We kind of prefer her with a shorter do, but she is still beyond beautiful.  Like, way beyond.

Ciara.  Who we prefer as a brunette.  But again, still beyond beautiful.

Regina King.  Yes :).  Black Hollywood Glamor and Sophistication.

Monica looking mature and elegant.

Team Taraji :).

Tatyana Ali has grown up right before our eyes.  Into ‘this.’ Wow.

Nicki Minaj.

The Passions has a weakness for Jeanette Jenkins.  A really bad one……

Lala Anthony and Selita Eubanks.  (i like sandwichs…tee-hee).

Kerry!!!  Doesn’t she have that ‘just rolled out of bed after being rocked,’ look going on?  We think so :).

LaToya Luckett and Michelle Williams.

Kim K and Beyonce.  Hey, that rhymes……

Melanie Fiona.

We love Tamia.  She is our favorite underrated singer.  She deserves more shine.

Lola Monroe.

Elle Varner.

Interesting Parents raise interesting Kids – and we mean that in only the best  possible way.  Willow and Jayden Smith.  Adorable.

And – to the BET Whitney Houston Tribute.  They got it RIGHT this time, folks.

Mariah Carey and Miss Cissy.


Mariah Carey tribute to Whitney Houston.

Here’s Ms. Cissy Houston’s tribute to her daughter, Whitney Houston.


The Passion’s End-of-Week Round Up with Kerry, Sanaa, Ashanti, WHITNEY and more!!!

My Passion Lovers,

I hope you’re not over the Mega-posts because I’ve kinda fallen in love with them.  I figure it’s much nicer to overwhelm you with chocolatey shades of beauty instead of spacing it all out in mini-posts.

I have to start things off with Kerry again.  Kerry Washington is ‘up there’ on the Passion favorite list.  And this list is not as long as you think.  Also because she is one of those rare celebrities I happened to have met in person and trust me not only is she better in person, but yes, this one talks the talk AND walks the walk – if you know what I mean.  Lady is NO slouch.  Anyway, when I ran across this shot of her in the current issue of Details, honey, the tingly sensation that vibrated through me resonated longer than it should.  Now tell me this photo ain’t move you just a lil bit?  🙂

Gott-damn, Kerry……

Next, another Passion fav, Sanaa Lathan at a Golden Globe party.  Just an amazing beauty.

Have you heard Miss Thing is repping for Pantene?

Talk about a ‘good look.’

Have you noticed Ashanti putting an appearance here and there on the Passions, lately?  There must be a reason for it, hmmm?  Here she is at Jay-Z’s 40-40 club opening.  I shall remain speechless on that ‘buzz’ mostly because we don’t care.  But don’t she look good?  Honey is wearing that dress.

Guess what?  Going to a Knick game is in fashion!!!  Here’s Lala and CiCi showing us all why ;)!

Ciara, I really need those boots in my life.  I’ll take the bag, too.  Wait, how bout you get in the bag and I take the entire package :).  Just joking.

Who else was at the game?  Why Jessica White and her girl pal, Irina Shayk.

Boots for Days!  YAY!

Speaking of boots – here’s Amber Rose in the N.Y.C. rocking her battle gear.  Yep, she’s allegedly got a single soon to be released.  Hmmm.

Sometimes when we see Amber we’re trying to figure out whether we want to receive a hickey from her or just give her one.

For those interested on the ID on the boot, Alexander McQueen.  I need those 2.

Here’s a twit pic of Amber and Monica.  Sweet.

Now over to the west coast – Here’s Mary J on her way to a dinner double date with her hubby along with Tamar Braxton and her spouse.

See, mixing business and pleasure can be clean in Hollyhood folks.

Meagan Good at LAX.

The Passions always had a soft spot for baby-girl.  (the SKIN>>>)  She was hawt in “Jumping the Broom.”  Go check that if you haven’t already.

And the Passion’s other baby girl, Rihanna, vacationing in Hawaii.  Must be nice, wild-child.

Moving even farther West, is Serena practicing in Melbourne.  Yay!

No matter what they say, the Williams Sisters STILL run World Tennis.  They are the one’s to beat and they own the crowns to snatch.  Period.  The End.

And last but far from least, here are some pics of Whitney on the set of “Sparkle.”  Just, Wow!!!  The Passions can’t WAIT for this flick to be released!!!  We gotta support this effort!!!


Happy New Year: Here’s to 2012

Welcome to 2012,

We’re going to start you off with some of our favorite crushes of 2011 and show you how some of ’em finished in 11.

Kelis and Kelly setting things off in the new Hunger magazine.

Kelis is just fierce to me.  Always loved her style.

Yeeeeessssss, Kelly.

Aisha Tyler is the package.  Brains, Beauty and she can rock a sequin shorts jumper like nobody’s business.  Here she is on the red carpet for the Dragon Tattoo premier.

Jill Marie Jones at a Toys for Tots event.  The Show Girlfriends wasn’t the same without her.  She’s still fine.

Christina Milian hanging in West Holly.

We never tire of extra tight jeans and frilly leather jackets on some people.  Christina is one of those people.

Halle has been MIA for a minute.

Glad she came out of hiding looking incredible as always.  Skin, hair, the understated but tasteful casual gear.  We heart her big time.

My future wife is repping Nutrisystem.  As always, looking like divine deliciousness :).

There is not a ton of love for Keri on the blogosphere, but we here at the Passions will stay crushing on this pretty girl.

The skin people, the skin!

Sentiments are the same for CiCi.  Here she is busting moves in the kitchen making Xmas dinner.  She can cook for the Passions any darn day.  Cute.

Paula P was kicking the end of 11’s ass with all the promo for MI.  And the Passions can’t get enough.  Here she is posing for GQ.

We love when celebs share on Twitter. Here’s Serena looking like the several millions she’s worth.  Can you say H.O.T.?

Tamia tweeted this pic of herself.  She is coming out with a new CD in February.  You best be on it like I will be.  She is at the top of the list of one of the most underrated entertainers.  And she’s gorge.

Gabby tweeted this pic – she’s chilling with some friends.  She is rolling just how the Passions likes to roll – with a bed FULL of WOMEN!!!  We see you, Gabby ;).

Gotta throw in a couple of NYE party pics.

Here’s Nicki Minaj and Fergie at Dick Clark’s rocking eve.  I’ll just take Nicki’s boots, please.

Rih-Rih was hanging @ Diddy’s Ciroc party in Miami.  Good dress choice….(sigh)……And the shoes don’t suck either.

Kim Porter and Nene.

Celebs celebrating the holidays with their families is always a great thing.  Here’s Angela Bassett and her’s in front of the marquee of her awesome new play “Mountaintop.”  Beautiful black people!

Alicia and her fam at a Knicks game showing both her husband and her son that she can rock sneaks better than they can :).

Tracee Ellis Ross and her siblings in Aspen.  BTW, a small forest was killed to create Tracee’s fit.

Melody Hobson and her billionaire and family spending their holiday in where else?  St. Barts.  Star Wars forever!

And our favorite family, the FIRST Family.

Looking forward to a FABULOUS 2012 Passions People!!!


Why “three” is Never a Crowd: Fierce Friday with Sanaa Lathan, Gaby Union and Ciara

Good Morning Angels,

Let’s start the weekend off with a Passions Menage :).  No, I am not suggesting that Sanaa, Gaby and Ciara hooked up.  Sigh.  Although that would be one HELLuva wet dream that the Passions would not want to wake up from.  Anyway, what I am saying is that these three gorgeous ladies were in attendance at @ REACH: 24 Photos by Richard Slavin for Charlize Theron’s Africa Outreach Project.  These Delicious Divas prove over and over again, that Black is so Beautiful – As if you needed to be reminded.

All KINDS of fabulous-ness going on here.


Wonder what was so funny???  Hope it was sexy.

Judging by Sanaa’s reaction – I vote that it HAD to be sexy.  Just saying….

These two.  🙂

Game PROPER, Gaby.

Ciara is wearing that dress.  And those legs just say, YES!


A Passions Chocolate Hump Day Special: With Janet, Halle, Nia, Rihanna and More…..

Hello My Ever-Ready Bunnies,

Our favorite Passions crushes have been quite the busy bees lately.  Whether here in the States or overseas, they have been gracing the right places with their presence while striking the right poses.  So we’ve combined them all right here in this Passions Hump Day Mega-Post for your one-stop-eye-candy-shopping pleasure.  I hope your optical senses will be overwhelmed with all of this heavenly deliciousness :).


Starting stateside, first, of course we have more Janet in LA, still holding court at the proceedings of her brother’s murderer.  Check out the bag.

Next?  Has fertility looked sexier?  Nia has brought a whole new meaning to that ‘glow.’ Here she is covering Ebony.

Can she be anymore beautiful?

Here’s Amber rocking shades that I’m guessing are from her sunglass line.  That crazy design is out of this world!  Really, they are.

The glasses are fly but the boots are much flyer. Way, way flyer.

What’s not hot about a woman in tight jeans and suede, knee high, metal toe boots?  Seriously?

So we hear that Ashanti is reviving her music career.  We can’t wait to hear what she has in store.

All hot and spicy in that red 🙂

The 2011 BET Awards were last week.  Jeannette Jenkins is the ONLY one worth featuring here @ the Passions ;).  This lady is tantalizingly gorgeous.  On some ‘other’ level.  WERK.

Now we travel overseas to Spain, where Halle Berry is shooting her latest film.  Have you heard she broke her foot? :(.

Damaged foot isn’t slowing her down.  They make such a sweet family.  Nahla is getting so big!

Jen visited Kelly on the X-Factor across the Pond.

The Passions LOVES some Kells.  The arms on her.

Here’s Keri Hilson arriving in Paris last week rocking some kind of couture.

I love it when she rocks the Doc Martens.

And here she is all ‘dolled’ up.  Yum (a common description we use around these parts for this Pretty Girl).

The leather dress must be making Keri feel some kind of way if you look closer at her expression.  Hope its ‘steamy’ thoughts. Cuz we’re having them looking at her.

Miss Universe, Leila Lopes of Uganda is in Indonesia promoting her message of international peace (and international beauty).

She’s such a stunner.

And lastly we have bad girl Rihanna making it rain stout in Ireland.  She’s doing big things on her Tour.

She went blonde for the cover of Vogue UK a la Marilyn Monroe.

The woman is righteously beautiful.


Passions Crush MEGA Post: CIARA does PARIS

Good Morning My Sweet, Succulent Chocolate Lovers,

So Ciara has been living it up in Paris!  Right now she is a darling to a bevy of designers, who like the Passions, are fiending for her looks, her body and her intense feminine sexiness.  She is perfect muse material.   Partying it up like a rock star, Miss Thing has been front row and center to many shows, cocktail parties and the Parisian nightclub scene.  And the Passions is bringing you right there, giving you  an insiders look to what she’s been up to while over there.  Who doesn’t LOVE Paris, Babies?  And we love it all the more with Ciara all up in it.


Ciara at Barbara Bui Ready to Wear.

Ask me if I would rock those boots?

With J. Hud @ Givenchy. Cici is all leggy and boobalicious.

Am I the only one salivating????

Ciara @ Dsquared’s opening boutique party.  Dean and Dan are CUTE!

@ Hogan in this GORGEOUS Lagerfeld.

Peek-a-BOO.  I see right THRU that sezzy dress, CiCi ;).

Like Twitpics?  The Passions loves ’em and here are a few that Ciara posted – for your viewing pleasure :).


Strike that pose, boo.

Pretty :).

Lovely, long toes. We think your toes rock here @ the Passions, Cici.



The Passions Hot Chocolate Monday Edition: With Kerry, Kelly, Nia, Ciara, Kelis and Eva

Good Morning (Fem) Queens and (drag) Kings and everybody else outside and in between (yes, you CAN sing it),

So the Passions has been feeling Hot Chocolate Mondays.  We hope you are too.

The Emmy’s were last night.  As we all know, there is never much color love on this particular Award Show, but, of course the Passions has managed to snag a few pics related to the event of those chocolate celebrities that matter to our loyal followers.

First, Kerry Washington – who by far bested every celebrity at the bland Award Show as Best Dressed and the Most Beautiful.  She is positively electrifying and she gave every single woman there a run for their money.  This, my Passion Darlings, is Hollywood elegance at it’s finest.  Let’s act like we know.

Lot’s of Pre-Emmy Shows.  Nia Long was among the attendees.  Isn’t she just glowing!!!

Not many can make being pregnant look sexy.  Nia has done it flawlessly.  Take good notes, please ;)!

Eva Marcille at the gifting suite.

Kelly Rowland pushing Puff’s newest scent, “Empress.”

The woman is the epitome of gorgeousness.

Hair long or short, she sets the bar high.

Here’s CiCi in Beverly Hills (notice big fan smile behind her…..YES, we see HER too)

Can Black Beauty get any more natural than Ciara?  WERK, girlfriend.  Cute sandals.

Kelis rules Europe where they love her.  Her bod is amazing.

Getting her grown woman on, for real.

And lastly, Amber Rose in Ghana.  Why is she there, you ask?  Don’t know but here she is with some fans.
