Um, did you know that “digital botox” existed? Well, it does. And I had some.
So last Sunday BET aired the 4th annual Black Girls Rock Awards and it was a BLAST! Â I hosted alongside the always wonderful, Regina King. Â It was such a pleasure to help honor such inspiring women. Â Patti LaBelle, Brooklyn Wright, Ameena Matthews, Mara Brock Akil and more…Black Girls Rock celebrated names we know, and introduced us to the names we will never forget.
So if you’re in search of some inspiration and missed the original airing, don’t worry! Â You can catch an extended version of Sunday’s show TONIGHT on BET! Â To get you excited, I’ve included a gallery of some of my favorite moments from the show, so browse through, watch tonight, and let me know your favs! Â (Spoiler Alert: there are some amazing performances from Miz LaBelle, Kelly Rowland, and OMG ALICE SMITH! Good luck picking a favorite).
I think the Funny or Die epi is awesome. Really funny. But, just being honestâ€¦.what happened behind the scenes was HYSTERICAL. However, I was so busy having fun that I did not document what was happening as well as I should have. Anyway here are a few picsâ€¦ Jenn Schatz is one of the funniest women I have ever met in my life. I live for her. Â Natasha and I were friends before, but she suggested me for the spotâ€¦cause sheâ€™s awesome like that. Natasha or Natish as I call her is one of my favorite people on the planet. I think she and I were sisters in another life and she kind of makes me cry with laughter. Â And then Taryn Manning. I mean STOP. Â It was 2 days of laughter, stupidness and PLAY â€¦oh yeah and we shot a Funny or Die too. Â Check Natasha and Taryn out on OITNB!!! Their show is GREAT!!!!!
