    Toni Braxton looking so old

      You know she’s sick right??

    • Naveah

      Ah Ah Tope, she’s clocking almost on 50 and she’s got the body of a 30 year old and there are some girls in that age demographic who are even looking older than Tony. I think it is the make up as well, she’s not glowing. She doesn’t have a wrinkle on her face. And like CaliBawlar has said, she has cardiacmyopathy which stems from her ongoing battle with Lupus which is why she stopped doing tours and even had to give up a lucrative show in Vegas. You can tell I am Braxton Family Value fan, right? lol

    Jennifer Hudson and those unflattering legs… She should have worn a dress. Being skinny is not a go to wear anything anyhow. You need to know what works for you.

    • Lilydarl

      November 10, 2013 at 3:38 am

      God bless you Dlapikin for saying my mind. Which kind dress be that lol.. She shouldn’t expose those legs again chai ….

    • Eve82

      November 10, 2013 at 6:55 am

      Yeah! I love u Jennifer, but you shouldn’t have exposed
      those thighs. The thing with drastic weight loss is that if you
      skin is already stretched, you might want to consider surgery if
      you insist on wearing short dresses. Reminded me of a picture of
      Star Jones in short skirt after the weight loss.

    Ashanti’s back view tho. I love me some vivica fox. Anthony Anderson’s weight loss still surprises me.

    • CarliforniaBawlar

      November 9, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    Toni’s makeup artist needs to be fired! Women in their 40s are looking hot these days when I was growing up women in their 40s all had Christian mother arms and tingz!

    -Iyanya seems like no one gives a shyt. Looking so lonely on the red carpet, no one is approaching you brother. So you and you Kukere can take several seats at yankee stadium
    -Jennifer Hudson abeg the fat sags in between your thighs are still showing, cover it up. so
    -Malinda Williams i miss you so much you look fabulous.
    -Vivica your new plastic surgeon is doing a good job, hope you can hold that up.
    -Toni i dont like the dark gothic look makes you look so much older
    -Ashantis dress is nice
    -Boris and Nicole fabulous as always
    -Faith Lost a lot of weight she looks good
    -KMichelle even if you have a whitney houston voice, You still ghetto, is was and always willbe and coupled with your GHetto Tattoess. Love her voice, Cant stand the bitch, She is too ghetto for my liking, kinda like Keyshia Cole and MJB when she first started. And then they wonder why the whole world loves Beyonce, KMichelle your voice is even better than Beyonces but that ghettoness will only take you so far – Beyonce is classy and graceful (something you kmichelle cant buy off the shelves). You cant cross the borders with that shyt. White ppl will be scared of you.

      All of these career advice for Kmichele?? Wrong website, maybe?? plus you care a little too much about a D-lister, lol.

      sharon you are a hater and am sure your comment about iyanya is cos you are jealous of him….did you not see him take picture with others? did you not see the other celebs alone on the red carpet? keep hating while he moves higher and you die of jealousy….lousy fool am sure you are even a frenemy posing as a woman….

    • Iyke

      November 11, 2013 at 10:06 am

      @Sharon, you are so childish and indeed a miserable HATER. These celebrities will always be better than YOU because you can’t do what they do. Why don’t you enter the same arena as a like-minded, equally talented individual, and see if your artistry and craft can really stand on its own. ….Unless your hands are contributing to the they, they be…Just keep your hands OFF of them, and your mouth SHUT!
      Learn to see good in people will help you grow and be a better human being.And one more thing, before you criticize somebody, make sure you are better than him/her.

    he still looks out of place here………

    • sexy mama

      November 11, 2013 at 10:03 am

      think before you type……how does he look out of place? he does not live in America, he was invited and yes he does not know half of the crowd who will pobably know each other cos they all probably c themselves more often… pray how in your small mind does he look out of place? the brother looks good and in your jealous and hateful heart you cant say something good but to say he looks out of place…..fear God and learn to think positive….am indifferent about iyanya but nobody gains anything by just talking for talking sake….

    please what is wrong with Toni – someone said she is not well. Ilike her so much

    • Ponmile

      November 11, 2013 at 4:32 pm

      she has lupus. it is a heart condition and this makes her tired all the time

    • NaijaPikin

      November 11, 2013 at 5:04 pm

      Lupus is not a heart disease. If you would educate people, at least have the time to source out the right information. When in doubt, a simple search on google for Lupus will educate you.

    November 11, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    lol….Anyone notice Boris rocked the same outfit he wore
    in naija….Nothing wrong with rerocking (it shows na you own the
    cloth). But i just couldn’t forget those pants.
