THE “GLADIATORS” TAKE NEW YORK: “Scandal” CAST Makes NY Promo Rounds on “GMA” & “The View”, Kerry Washington CHATS IT UP With “WENDY”
As they prepare for this week’s season finale, the cast of ABC’s hit show "Scandal" made some daytime TV appearances including jaunts through "GMA", "The View" and Kerry Washington appeared on "Wendy". Watch clips from each show inside…
Earlier this morning, "Scandal" star Kerry Washington was spotted in New York’s Time Square. Kerry was up bright and early to join the cast of her hit show on "GMA" to dish on this season’s many secrets and to promote the season finale, which airs Thursday.
Following her "GMA" appearance, Kerry switched gears and went over to the "WENDY" show where was joined by her Peeples co-star David Allan Grier to play a few games and promote their latest forray onto the big screen.
Then, the lady in red linked up with the "Scandal" cast again to appear on "The View" which was co-hosted by Judy Smith, the well-connected Washington powerhouse who inspired the "Olivia Pope" character.
Though we enjoyed seeing the cast make their rounds, actor Columbus Short was suspiciously absent…and no one bothered to explain his absence. Hmmm….we wonder if he’s going to get killed off on soon (hope not!)….
Watch highlights from each show here…..
On "Good Morning America:
The entire cast appeared on GMA and revealed that off-camera, they’re all good friends. They watch the show as a group on weekends so they can cheer each other on. Nice!
Kerry told Wendy that she doesn’t like it when people say that Olivia Pope is the President’s side piece because it objectifies women. When asked about the relationship between the President and Olivia, Kerry reminded the audience that POTUS has offered to leave his wife for Olivia, but she told him not to. She then asked the audience if Olivia was truly the side chick, or if she remained "on the side" simply because she was afraid to be "all in."
Later in the segment, she was joined by her Peeples co-star David Allan Grier to promote their movie (which is in theaters now).
On "The View":
At the (6:31) mark, Tony Goldwyn, who plays President Fitzgerald Grant, re-enacts the scene (with co-host Sherri Shepherd) where the President tells Olivia that he will leave his wife and the White House. He tells Sherri–in that sultry ass way he does–to sit down and says, "Watch me choose you…Watch me earn you!" Then, he kisses her. *fans self*
The season finale of "Scandal" airs May 16, 10p ET. We’re SO there.
PREGNANT MOMS TAKE THE WEEKEND! DJ Envy’s Wife’s Baby Shower + Halle & Nahla Hit A Birthday Party + Alexis Stoudemire Shows Her Baby Belly
Pregnant moms in the YBF world spent their Mother’s Day Weekend with fam and friends. We’ve got pics of mommy Halle Berry at a picnic birthday party with Nahla, DJ Envy‘s wife Gia‘s baby shower and Alexis Stoudemire showing off her baby belly…
Nahla loves a good day at the park! So yesterday she and her celeb mom Halle Berry hit up a friend’s birthday party outdoors in the springtime Cali weather:
Nahla kept it cute in a striped multi-colored top and pink leggings and matching sneakers.
And Halle rocked a cute and comfy sundress that perfectly covered her burgeoning baby bump for the occasion. Cute!
Over in New Jersey, The Breakfast Club’s DJ Envy is back in wife’s good graces. After his cheating scandal with "LAHH" chick Erica Mena and all. So he dished out the cash for wife Gia Casey’s baby shower as they prepare to welcome baby #3:
He said, "2dys baby shower was worth every penny." We’re sure it was.
His co-host Angela Yee came out to support (Charlamagne skipped it) and kicked it with Wyclef & Jersey’s own Naughty By Nature.
And in the midst of NY Knicks baller Amar’e Stoudemire balling in the NBA playoffs, he posted a pic of his, his kids’ and his wife’s hands all touching Alexis’ baby belly. How precious!
Check out our gallery below of YBF’s expectant and NEW moms who make mommyhood look easy and FABULOUS.

Another year, another Met Ball. The biggest fashion red carpet & event of the year is currently underway at MoMA in NYC, and we’ve got the YBF celebs who took over the extremely fashionable red carpet. Check out the risk takers who pulled off their looks fabulously, and those who tried….
Once again, for the second year in a row, Beyonce Knowles took over VOGUE’s 2013 "PUNK: Chaos To Couture" themed Met Ball tonight rocking an eye catching and sexy look from Givenchy Haute Couture. After last year’s shutdown in the purple & black feather & sheer number, Bey, who is serving as this year’s honorary co-chair, switched it up with a strapless leather bodice and a printed gold and black skirt with a high slit that exposed matching boots, and came with matching gloves.
Gotta love it.
And she’s not the only risk taker who won.
We’re absolutely loving Alicia Keys’, LaLa’s, and Kerry Washington’s looks for the night.
Alicia kept her sexy edge in a leather cutout Jason Wu halter dress with a red sequined bottom half and the perfect touch of punk with Robert Lee Morris jewels, a Tonya Hawkes clutch and streak of red hair.
"Scandal" star Kerry Washington has been on a whirlwind NYC promo tour today hitting up several back to back to back talk shows. And she pulled it together once again tonight in a gorgeous Vera Wang creation. Vera stepped outside the box of her usual simple colors and flowy looks to go for a structured multimedia dress with a bold metallic print. And it worked perfectly for Kerry.
Kerry and Vera even posed it up with Andre Leon Talley inside looking like a page snatched straight from VOGUE magazine. Serve.
LaLa Anthony looked amazing as she flew solo in this red satin Zac Posen dress as she showed off her new slim & toned bod in a dress that would show every flaw. But in this look, she’s got none. Perfect straightened & cut blonde hair as well.
La had some fun with her girl Chanel Iman who rocked striped Diane von Furstenberg.
And let’s discuss Nicole Richie‘s surprising silver foxy look shall we? We must say, it works for her. It’s a costume gala after all and she gave just enough "costume" drama. Chick could play Storm in X-Men. The fashion diva rocked Dana Rebecca Designs and a Maria Francesca Pepe ring.
Oh Nicki. Our darling Nicki. Not sure if it’s the 80′s hair (yeah, we know the theme is Punk but still) or the dark lipstick with it, but this is doing a bit much. The dress isn’t doing it for us either. Maybe it’s because it’s by Tommy Hilfiger and he doesn’t strike us as a red carpet formal gown type of designer. But, it’s not horrible.
By the way, Tommy gifted her with a Rolex a few hours ago as well that she happily put on Twitter. Nice!
Fashion diva Solange Knowles never gets it wrong. And tonight is no different. The "Losing You" singer stepped outside the box and rocked a printed blue Kenzo dress for, as she called it, an "Afro Punk" look. And we’re loving every bit of it. The hair, that slit, and those gorgeous earrings. Loves it!
Rocking a white Thakoon look with an exposed midriff slit and a high split in the skirt, Rita Ora got it all the way right with the hair and makeup as well. Loving this look for her.
And the athletes also made their way to the hige fashion event:
NY Giants star Victor Cruz kept it dapper in a teal Lanvin dinner jacket with his tux.
And his fiancee Elaina Watley looked great in this very detailed bodice of a dress with a full black skirt.
NY Knicks star Amar’e Soudemire, who plans to come back from injury in Game 3 later this week, attended in a dapper Calvin Kelin suit with a burgundy jacket full of sheen. Loves it. And his wife Alexis makes pregnancy look ridiculously fabulous as she rocks a frock full of feathers by Giambattista Valli. Gorgeous.
The twosome took pics with Taylor Swift and teammate Tyson Chandler‘s wife, Kimberly.
And rounding out the athletes, Tiger Woods and his new chick, pro ski racer Lindsay Vonn, made their red carpet debut tonight. No risks taken here, but the white gown is pretty.
Jennifer Lopez got catty in this stunningly glam Michael Kors gown. Very unexpected look by the all American designer, but the risk paid off because Jenny looks amazing. As usual, the cheetah style nude and black print dress looks painted on. And she’s freaking flawless.
Kanye’s looking pretty good at the Met Ball. All that away-time in Paris is paying off. And he posed it up with his baby moms-to-be Kim Kardashian, who rocked a much talked abut (and not in a good way) Ricardo Tisci floral dress, gloves and matching shoes.
And if you ask whose grandmother’s plastic couch cover got removed in order to use the couch fabric underneath for this dress…..you aint right.
Oh hey ALT! Get it with those pink socks!
Miguel made his way to his first MET Ball Monday night.
Model Tyson Beckford loves himself a bright colors and a bold print. His pink camo Alexander Nash dinner jacket works for him though.
And Eve made her way into the high brow event looking absolutely stunning in leather and lace. Nice to see hip hop getting some love from the fashion crowd.
More pics of the YBFers will be updated here as they come in. Stay tuned!
B.I.C. is taking over Paris…one neon Adidas Kids’ Big Trefoil sneaker at a time. Baby Blue was spotted lunching in the fabulous city with the ‘rents, Mr. & Mrs. Carter. Check out the completely uncovered cutie inside…
Now that Beyonce showed her baby girl’s face in her HBO documentary "Life Is But A Dream," she’s got no qualms about throwing away that ever present blankie and letting Blue Ivy be free!
Beyonce is in Paris performing back-to-back sold out shows for her Mrs. Carter Tour, so it’s only right her baby girl is right by her side, and so is papa Jay who offered up some kisses to his princess.
The Carter fam was spotted out at lunch at Szptime restaurant in the gorgeous french city today, and clearly Bey and her wiggery were on "EF-it" casual mode. The mom of the 1 and a half year old cutie also debuted her brand new song "Grown Woman" on stage at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy last night.
How cute is Mr. Carter as the ever-doting daddy?! Loves it!
Bey plays Paris again tonight back at Bercy.
Tyga has been busy promoting his album Hotel California, but he took the day off to visit Disneyland with his family. The “Dope” rapper and his girlfriend Blac Chyna had a blast at the Happiest Place on Earth with their son King Cairo.
The family was all smiles as they posed for a photo with Mickey Mouse. Tyga donned a Goofy hat and held his six-month-old baby, while Blac Chyna kept it cute in Minnie Mouse ears.
Hotel California debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200, selling 54,000 copies in its first week.
Tyga will head to Europe on his “Hotel California” tour, which kicks off April 30 in Germany. He also plans to shoot a video for “For the Road,” his collaboration with Chris Brown.

Led by Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, New York fashion purveyor Opening Ceremony has unveiled its new Tokyo offshoot — a 13,000-square-foot store located at the city’s modish Cat Street in the Omotesando district. Covering four levels, the new brick & mortar hosts a number of familiar brands — Acne, Sophie Hulme, Proenza Schouler, Alexander Wang — alongside exclusives from adidas, and Yoko Ono’s directional menswear collection.The new store is designed with an open, lofty feel, with large glasses exposing the neighborhood outside, while the interior employs beams of atypical hues and patterns best known to the brand. “The main thing that pleased us about moving here was that we had a freestanding space. That we weren’t attached to a big complex, we like to act on a whim and do things spontaneously” Leon said. Be sure to drop by if you happen be in Tokyo.
While on tour with Hoodie Allen, Aer had mattMiGGZ shoot their time on the road. The result? A new visual from the duo’s Strangers EP; which is available now.

In his recent video for “No Guns Allowed” Snoop Lion makes it clear that there needs to be some serious initiative to cut down on gun violence and he’s helping to make that happen by teaming up with MTV and Jewelry and a Cause to help get illegal guns off the street.
Snoop, MTV and Jewelry for a Cause are releasing the limited edition “MTV x Caliber” bracelets made from the steel of illegal guns which have been acquired in police-sponsored buyback programs. The bracelets are engraved with serial numbers of firearms that were returned through buyback programs in Newark, New Jersey. On Tuesday (April 9) the bracelets can pre-ordered for on caliber.MTV.com and the proceeds from each sale will be donated to the Newark Police Department to help fund future gun buyback amnesty programs.
Celebrities will receive the bracelets in their gift bags at the 2013 MTV Movie Movie Awards, which air 9 p.m. ET on MTV Sunday night (April 14).
“This is such an important message we’re sharing,” Snoop Lion said in a statement issued by MTV. “It’s a movement we want generations to recognize, embrace, and get behind. We’ve seen a lot of senseless acts of violence involving guns recently — too many have lost their lives, too many families have been destroyed. Like my friends at MTV, I want to be a part of the change that will help bring peace.”

Two new songs have been released from James Blake’s Tumblr, presumably to give listeners a benchmark of what to expect on the forthcoming Overgrown LP. “Take a Fall For Me” features hip-hop legend RZA and, although Blake and the rapper/producer make vastly different music independently, the sense of ethereal mystery that underlines both artists’ work becomes the common ground on this collaboration. The second piece, “Everyday I Ran,” is a layered, trippy song that samples Big Boi’s “Royal Flush.” Both tracks are featured below for your enjoyment.
