A May Morning Mega Post: With Janet, Kerry, Amber and others, plus Rihanna Making it RAIN

Darlings,

Missing you ALL!!!

To make up for the distance, here’s a May Mega with some of the ‘usual’ Passion Crush Favorites.

What better way to start things off then with Miss Jackson, giving us fierce body after her stint with Nutrisystem.  Just staring at her makes me want to get on the system even though I don’t think I really need it.  That’s what I call MARKETING!!!!

 

Christina Milian is looking nice on and in Denim’s Spring Issue rocking the color block fad.

Yassssss……

Kerry Washington’s “Scandal” is doing big things.  It could not have happened to a more accomplished, more talented, more HOTTER actress.

Keri Hilson was in Mozambique to perform for the big “Diva’s Show.”  She tweeted these pics to her fans and all we can say is “niiiiiiiiice….”

Brandy and Monica on the cover of Ebony.  Nice to see all three, Brandy, Monica and Ebony Magazine still pressing on.

 

 

 

Speaking of pushing, did you know that Nicki Minaj is pushing Pepsi?  Not a bad gig at all.  Think she needs a new stylist tho?

Paula Patton in People Magazine’s Most Beautiful issue sans make up.

Here’s Grace Jones performing @ AmFar.

Just looking AMAZING in her sixth decade.  WERK, gottdamnit!!!!

Amber Rose did an amazing spread for Lifestyle Mirror Magazine.  She is looking straight FABULOUS here.

From the setting, her fit, how she’s styled and even her manicure – just, BRAVO.

And last but certainly not least, our baby girl crush Miss Rihanna in New York City.

 

I’m sure you’ve seen, if not at least heard about her stripper pics.  Rih was at a strip joint in Queens and she tweeted these lovely gems to the people.   Had to be too many things going on up in there that night.

Yes Ladies, she is indeed a straight up “G.”

KERRY WASHINGTON Hits the sweet spot in Scandal

Well Darlings,

We’re back.  And the main source of this inspiration is – Miss Kerry Washington in her role as Olivia Pope of Olivia Pope and Associates in the ABC premiere “Scandal” which set off serious fire alarms on millions of flat screens last night.

Kerry plays Pope a “fixer” deliciously navigating her staff of  ‘gladiator in suits’ through the nuanced world of Washington D.C. insiders.

Now the Passions isn’t only crushing hard on the obviously talented and incredibly sexy Kerry Washington.  You Passion followers in the know – know how we feel about the gorgeous Miss Washington.  And we all agree, Kerry KILLED it last night.  But let’s spread the love here.  Grey’s Anatomy Shonda Rhimes is the creative genius behind Scandal.  And props to her are definitely in order.

Shonda showed us that as a black woman in Hollywood, not only do you have to be a GREAT writer to get any play but you have to be MUCH BETTER THAN THE REST to even sit at the table.  Real talk, Ladies (& gents).  And she served it with “Grey’s Anatomy” (and with Private Practice too). But this time Shonda took a huge risk writing and developing a show starring a black woman.  Do you believe its been thirty years since a black woman starred in her own television series?  Yes it is 2012.  A little jarring and extremely sinful, isn’t it ? Anyway, so Shonda, an incredibly talented black woman writer, wrote a phenomenal script starring an incredibly talented black actress, Kerry Washington, with a storyline actually based on an incredibly successful black woman, former White House Press Agent Judy Smith who runs her own DC based crisis management firm Smith & Co.  Smith’s impressive background before becoming a “fixer” handling such high-profile cases as Monica Lewinsky, the BP Oil spill and Michael Vicks was as Deputy Press secretary under the George W. Bush administration.  This is some serious content here folks, wouldn’t you say?

So, the Passions is obviously in heaven with this lovely blend of black female beauty, power and brains – a combination that is never given enough attention and respect as far as we’re concerned.  So here we are, giving it life and love.  And, of course we have to give you a pictorial of Lady Washington to end things neatly here.  Passion crushes forever, Darlings!!!

@ the 2011 New York Film Critics Circle Awards.

Here she is promoting Scandal on 106 and Park.  I don’t know about those kids but I find Kerry’s leather skirt and her damn legs positively mesmerizing.

SMDH…..Just, beautiful……

So, peep SCANDAL on ABC on Thursday Nights.  Kerry will be bringing the heat, the drama and a killer wardrobe to match.

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!!!

Nicole Ari Parker has gone natural too :)!

Holly Robinson Peete.

Sheryl Lee Ralph.

Lynn Whitfield.

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.

Passion Covergirls: Janet Jackson and Kerry Washington

Well Good Morning Darlings,

Experiencing a little deja-vu this Ground Hog Day?  I hope it’s good for you :).

So our ultimate Passion crush and another favorite covered a couple of February issues.

First, Janet, of course, on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, the Indonesian edition.  Sigh.  Why do we always have to meet just in my dreams, Dunk?

Now its been said that the overseas editions are known to lighten skin tones.  So here below is the original shot.  See any difference?  Notice the red corset (double sigh…..  ;).

And guess who had a birthday yesterday?  Yes, Passion Crush Kerry Washington celebrated her 35th.  Here she is covering Essence this month.  To me, she is giving major Diahann Carroll here.  To the Passions, considering they are both from the Boogie Down, the resemblance is not coincidental 😉 ).

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!!!

Mega Post-Mega Thrills at the Passions

Good Evening Lovers,

Wondering what’s going on with some of our favorites as 2012 gets started?  Well, here we go.

*

Kerry Washington at the TCA Press Tour.

Kerry always looking back-a-licious.  Yep.

Here’s Christina Milian at Moon Nightclub in L.A.  Doesn’t her dress make you think of scuba diving?  Or just ‘diving? ;)’

The legs AND the shoes.  Just, damn.

The Passions has a serious shoe fetish, as many of you know.  And while on the topic of ‘Fetish’, we discovered that Eve might be the candidate replacing Stacey Dash on Single Ladies.  Guess we’ll find out soon.  She would make a decent Plan B.

In the Passions “Baby-Mama’s Edition,” – we’ve got the first sneak peak of Nia’s brand new baby boy.  Just PRECIOUS!!!!

And another Passions favorite “Baby Mama’s, ” Halle Berry took Nahla to Disney Land.  Halle’s still healing from that foot accident.

BTW – Have you heard that Halle is engaged to her guy?  Good luck with that, Love :). (we’re not sounding a bit jealous, are we??)

Like, even when dressed “down”, Halle gives the Passion’s Life she is so damn fine.

The Passions is gonna have to get on that Microdermabrasion situation, stat!  Halle’s skin is crazy.

From Passions Baby Mama’s to Passions Fine Like Wine Mama’s.

So, the First Lady really doesn’t belong in this category but we’re putting her here for a reason.  Here she is with Gabby U at the BET Honors.  Just all kinds of chocolately goodness here.

Now THIS is our version of the ONLY FIRST LADY!

We see you, Miss Patti.

With her Fur and pink Louis.  Patti Labelle is too fierce for PETA to mess with.  They best not.

And here’s Miss Ross The Boss leaving Barney’s New York in L.A.

Casual-Classy in black velour and a respectable tip for the valet in hand.  Okay???  Taking notes, Lady?

While on the topic of Ross, here’s Tracee Ellis at the BET Honors.

Kelly Rowland and Ledisi were at the BET Honors too.

And bringing up the rear is baby girl Rihanna in her recent ad for Armani.  Just raw sexiness.
