Jill Scott and The A Group

Posted in Curvy News, Entertainment, Hollywood, Loves It!, Pop Culture on April 25, 2011 by miaamber

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Hollywood Listening Party for one of my all time favorite artists Jill Scott’s new album, “Light of the Sun.”

Jilly from Philly NEVER disappoints…ever!  I sang at the top of my lungs and sweat my hair out on a “school night!”

With a bolder than ever voice, a new home at Warner Brothers and incredible new background singers who go by the name, “The A Group” ( these girls can sang!!) Jill is poised to run to the top of the charts!

Here’s a look at the just released video for, “Shame,” one of the hottest songs on the album.  Jill and the girls were styled by the incomparable Susan Moses!

I can’t wait to hear the album in its entirety this summer when it’s released.

Congrats Jill!

Say it ain’t so! ABC has canceled iconic soap operas All My Children and One Life to Live.

ABC has canceled two of its longest-running programs, daytime soap operas “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.”

The network announced Thursday that the two soap operas would end, with “All My Children” going off the air in September and “One Life to Live” going off the air in January.

In their place, a Mario Batali-hosted food show called “The Chew” will premiere in September, and a health/lifestyle transformation show tentatively called “The Revolution” will premiere in January.

“General Hospital” will remain on the network.

“All My Children” has been the subject of cancellation rumors of late, with’s Nellie Andreeva reporting last month that the show might be replaced by a talk show.

“While we are excited about our new shows and the shift in our business, I can’t help but recognize how bittersweet the change is,” Brian Frons, ABC’s daytime department president , said in an announcement. “We are taking this bold step to expand our business because viewers are looking for different types of programming these days. They are telling us there is room for informative, authentic and fun shows that are relatable, offer a wide variety of opinions and focus on ‘real life’ takeaways.”

The first of those new shows to premiere, “The Chew,” will be hosted by Batali, “What Not To Wear” host Clinton Kelly, “Top Chef” alumna Carla Hall, restaurateur Michael Symon and “Dorm Room Diet” author Daphne Oz.


I’m at a loss for words to think what will become of Erica Kane!  I have been an AMC and OLTL fan since I was a little girl watching “the stories” with my grandma.  I didn’t always understand what was going on but the glamour, drama and intrigue definitely translated 100%

The following clips of Jenny Gardner’s death on AMC are etched in my brain… 

I was in South Carolina watching the show with my cousins when it happened and we were all screaming and upset and yelling! My grandma ran into the living room thinking one of us was injured.  We told her that Jenny died and she was so mad at us for being silly!

RIP AMC & OLTL… Thanks for the memories.

Last night our girl, Wendy Williams and her partner Tony Dovolani were booted from Dancing With the stars 😦

Don’t fret!! Wendy is still a winner with a highly rated talk show and  dual covers of Essence magazines May issue!

 “I know I make some people cringe. But I also know my willingness to expose myself, warts and all, is part of the reason people are drawn to me. With me, what you see is what you get…” –Wendy Williams


Can’t wait to read more!



Slim Takes Some Getting Used To

Jennifer Hudson’s fiance, David Otunga, loves her but thinks her fab new look will take some getting used to!

“Jennifer Hudson’s fiance and father of her son, David Otunga, is still adjusting to the singer’s new body and incredible weight loss.”

“The ‘Where You At’ singer lost 80lbs after the birth of her son, going from a U.S. size 16 to a size 6, but during her interview on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, J-Hud said that her partner is having difficultly getting used to her new shape.

She said: “He’s getting adjusted to it. He’s not really into change that much.”

The Oscar winner also claims that she’s adopted a new sense of style to go with her body, and her fiance prefers the way she used to dress.

Jennifer explained: “He fusses at me like, ‘Why do you have to have to get all dressed up to go out, and why can’t you just go out like you used to?’ And I’m like, ‘I’m a walking billboard now, honey!””


JHud looked smoking hot at her album release party last week!

So happy she’s finally embracing her body!

Shout out to E! News for including Gabby Sidibe  (in this Golden Globes ensemble) in their montage of celebrities rocking the latest color trends on the red  carpet!

Main stream media rarely includes full-figured celebs in segments that don’t relate to being full-figured and I was very happy to see Gabby in the segment last night.

Good looking out, E! I hope there’s more to come.



Stunning, Sophisticated, and Iconic…

Wendy Williams is DWTS

Posted in Curvy News, Entertainment, Hollywood, Pop Culture on March 22, 2011 by miaamber

A while back I told you that if self-proclaimed, “Queen of All Media,” Wendy Williams joined this season of Dancing With the Stars, I would be forced to watch it for the first time.  A deal is a deal– Wendy is dancing so I’m watching!

Last night was the first episode and SPOILER ALERT… our girl Wendy didn’t do so hot and scored a 14 out of 30.  However– she really did give it her all and that’s all we can ask for! 

The judges told her to go back to the drawing board, find that dynamic personality that we all know and love and bring it to the dance floor next week.  I agree 100%!

I hope Wend and her partner Tony get at least one more try to show the world what they’re made of!

DWTS is ground breaking this season with not just one curvy contestant (Wendy Williams) but two!  Kirstie Alley is also partying on the dance floor and looking great, too alongside her super hot partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy!

Who is your favorite?
