Weekend Fix: Amber Rose, Thicke Family and Dwight From ATLPublished by Dior Noir on Friday, October 23, 2009 at 3:00 pm.
Kanye might be going through a life spiral right now but his girl Amber Rose is still doing her thing! Earlier this week she turned up at Elle magazine’s 16th Annual Women in Hollywood event looking classy in a hip-hugging red dress and at the event she told the LA Times she doesn’t plan on giving up those curves anytime soon. She spoke about her contract with Ford Modeling Agency and said “I told them, Don’t ask me to grow out my hair or lose any weight. I want to represent real women who have curves.” I like that she’s keeping it real! She agreed not get any more tattoos until her contract is up, but when it is she wants a full sleeve tat. That woman could pull off almost anything!
Baby Makes Three
Robin Thicke and Paula Patton are expecting their first child. The couple were high school sweethearts and married in 2005. The baby news comes just weeks after Paula told Giant magazine she had “stopped taking birth control” in an effort to get pregnant. Congrats to the happy couple! In addition to expanding their family, both the Thickes have new projects coming out. Robin’s latest single, ‘Sex Therapy,’ was released this week and Paula stars in the upcoming movie “Precious” (just went to a screening last night and it is heavy. Go see it when it hits theaters November 6th!).
The “Sixth” Housewife
The second season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta ended last night, but despite continuing to be portrayed as Nene’s “gay boyfriend” Dwight Eubanks sat down and told the folks at Black Voices that he doesn’t discriminate. “If I wanted to be with a woman, I will be with a woman, and if I want to be with a guy, then I will be with a guy,” he declared. “I like all fruits, but I do have a problem with [people] dwelling on ‘Dwight the gay housewife.’ Let’s get to know Dwight.” Dwight confirmed with Essence back in April that he’s engaged to a woman. I’d be interested to see him on his own show, but he doesn’t know if that will be a reality. Black Voices reported that he not sure what network execs have in mind for his own show. He added, “most days I don’t know what to do with myself. I know I am a lot.”
Speaking of Housewives Kandi Burruss is the next cast member to be bitten by the fashion bug! Luckily Dwight wont have to call her “dreadful” because she’s not trying to design. She recently opened a boutique called TAGS in Atlanta with her business partner Peaches Chin. Wonder if the boutique will carry “fashions” from She by Sheree and Closet Freak (Lisa Wu Hartwell’s line)?
That’s all for this week, we’ll be back on Monday!
