Celebrity Events Archives

Toya and Memphitz Wright showed up at the Bronner Bros. Hair Show this weekend representing Ampro. They stopped by the Ampro booth, with one of the largest crowds during the event and created a moblike atmosphere. One lady yelled, “Damn, who’s here? Lady Gaga?”

Toya recently was placed on the NY Times best seller list. Big ups!

Toya and Memphitz also made their way to the official Bronner Bros. After Party.

And please pray for Memphitz and his family, I’m sure you heard he was in jail tonight. Sometimes people forget things when they go through security. It could happen to you too, stop all the hating.

2011 Bronner Bros Hair Show: Day 1

The Bronner Brother Hair Show has been known for highlighting black hair, many times in very eccentric ways, and this year’s show was no exception. The convention brought vendors, barbers, hairstylists and models from all over the world as well as a number of celebrities.

Actress Lisa Raye and hairstylist Derek J came to promote their new products, and actor Malcolm Jamal Warner was at the Ford booth promoting his new BET sitcom “Reed Between The Lines.” Other celebrity cameos included: Lisa Wu Hartwell, Dondria, Princess from Crime Mob amongst others.

The hair show offered a variety of hair styles and trends for men and women alike, from hair weaves to natural styles to colored hair cuts. Models and everyday people wore some of the most out-of-this-world styles.

Workshops, seminars, classes and hair competitions took place throughout the day and culminated with a performance by Kelly Price that night.

Here are the photos. Would you rock any of these styles? READ MORE

Lisa Raye showed up at Bronner Brothers Hair Show rocking her usual all-white to show to promote her new weave line LisaRaye Glamour made of real Indian hair. The star of VH1’s Single Ladies was on the showroom floor speaking about her new product, signing autographs and taking photos. She even met up with Housewives of Atlanta hairstylist Derek J while he was promoting  Brazilian Heat flat irons.

Raye was on the floor, mixing with guests and signing autographs for buyers of her product. Her sister, Da Brat, also made an appearance in support of her sister’s new line.

Lisa was later seen in the S.T.E.P.S./Clairol Celebrity Lounge smoozing with the press. Lisa Raye also has a denim line for women with curves in conjunction with retailer PZI.

Derek J is rumored to be starting his own reality TV show and sources say that its going to be unlike anything on TV. I got the popcorn ready!

Beyonce To Perform MJ Tribute Via Satellite

Beyonce has signed on to do the Michael Jackson Tribute in Wales this October, but won’t actually be there. Remember her performance on the 2011 BET Awards? Yep, she’ll be performing via satellite. She’ll be doing her favorite Jackson 5 song and will join the ranks of Alexandra Burke, Cee Lo Green, Christina Aguilera, Leona Lewis, Smokey Robinson and more.

We’ll be watching.

Seems Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ wedding bliss was a bit of hell for neighbors. The wedding couple and their 460 guests were so loud that the cops were called.

At about 11:30, neighbors had reached their limit and called the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department. The police then showed up at the wedding and asked them to keep it down…which they had no problem doing.

Don’t worry though, there was no official complaint signed by any of the neighbors and the new couple will not be fined.

Wheeeewww – glad to know no one had to go to jail on their wedding day.

Seems my girl Vivica A. Fox was feeling a bit of fatigue/jetlag from that flight to Johannesburg, South Africa last night and she let the locals feel it! It appears that the actress, who was asked on stage with Regina King, Brandy and South African Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula (who also invited the actresses to the country) to take pictures, didn’t like the fact that the MC had also invited actresses Matheba and Sonia Sedibe of soap opera Generations on stage. When two more South African celebrities got on the stage, Fox freaked out! READ MORE

Toni Braxton Rumored To Be Doing ‘Chicago’ Musical

Rumors have been flying around that the lovely Toni Braxton may be joining the cast of the hit musical Chicago. Chicago will become the longest running musical in Broadway history at the end of the month. Let’s hope she gets it. She’s also starred in Beauty and the Beast and Aida.

Toni is also still considering the semi-nude photo shoot for playboy. I say what the hell, go for it, you’ve been on the cover of everything – from Vibe to Upscale.

In another Toni news, her bankruptcy was approved and she’ll be able to keep her Grammy Awards, Tiffany Jewelry and the ’95 Porsche.
