Gabourey Loses 174 Pounds (Real or Fake)

Ok we are late but I had to post this story.
This infamous picture has been floating around the internet for the past few days. There were several things that comes to mind. When did Gabourey Sidibe lose the weight? How did she lose the weight? What advice does she have to her plus size fans?
These questions may be harder for Sidibe to answer, as she is NOT 174 pounds lighter. She recently lost only 54 pounds, over the past year, which would be very accurate for someone with a busy schedule. Although, it may be a welcome sight for many Gabourey fans, it is clearly a Photoshop image.
The image was a past photo shoot of African American Plus Size Model-Marquita-Pring.
Gabourey is slowly on her way down to 100 pounds. It was very optimistic and creative for the person to illustrate an example of the future actress! Watch out Jeniffer Hudson!

Evette Holyfield talks abstinence

Abstinence has been a relatively easy decision for Evette Holyfield, who fully intends to wait until she's married to have sex.
Evette is 27 years old, single and a virgin. And she's completely okay with that. It was part of the value system that's always been part of her life, and her dad Evander Holyfield made sure she understood the value of virginity at a young age.
"We grew up in a Christian home. When I was around six years old, my dad said to me, 'You don’t need to have sex outside of marriage,'" she recalled. "He went through the whole spiel with me. So as I grew up, I thought, 'Okay, dad, if you don’t want me to do it, I’m not gonna do it.'"
Maintaining that stance has come with getting deeper into her faith. "I started to really understand church—the words in the Bible and what the pastor is really saying," she explained to Essence. "At that point, I wasn’t just doing it because my dad said don’t, but rather, I now believe that by waiting, God will bless me and bring me a great husband.
In a time when talking about your latest escapes are part of the culture of girl talk, some women don't get Evette's decision to remain a virgin until she's married. Aside from the spiritual benefit for her, she said she'd rather focus on keeping her goodies exclusive. She shared, "Some women have said to me, 'Why would anyone want to date you if you haven’t had sex?' I ask them, 'Why would anyone want to date someone who has slept with the whole world?'”
While she has spoken with young girls about abstinence at different schools, she knows that her path is not for everyone. "I would prefer if women waited to have sex, but I know it’s unrealistic to think that all women are going to think like me," Evette admitted.
But if you really want some advice from Evette she has a couple of suggestions. "I think women should make a list of what they really want in a man. Then, wait, really stick to your guns, and have faith that God is going to give you that person," she advises. "If women did that, it would save them a lot of heartache. Never settle."
Evette revealed that she hasn't really had any problems practicing what she preaches. It's not clear whether she's had any close calls, but being abstinent has supposedly been a breeze for her. Afterall, how can you miss something that you never had?
Honestly, it’s easy for me. I was in a three-year relationship, and I never had those desires for him in that way. He never pressured me," said Evette. "In my mind, I already have it set that I’m not gonna do it, so if someone were to pressure me, it wouldn’t even phase me. I just don’t have those desires."

Nick Gordon arrested for reckless driving

Just a day after confirming his split from Bobbi Kristina, there's word that Nick Gordon was arrested for reckless driving. reports that cops took Nick into custody last night after authorities caught him driving 82 mph in a 35 mph zone in Alpharetta, Georgia.

Officers said Nick didn't hit anyone, but he was a danger to people walking in the area. "We are fortunate because that's such a busy corridor with high end retail shopping restaurants and pedestrains at crosswalks," one cop said. "At that speed, it's absolutely reckless."

The arrest came just hours after Bobbi herself escaped her own car wreck in the same town, totaling a Chevy Camaro. Supposedly, Bobbi lost control of the vehicle and went flying down an embankment, hitting several trees before the car came to a stop.

Thankfully, she escaped the horrifying crash without a scratch.

Laura Govan refuses to show her kids

Laura Govan said you will never see her babies on camera again! At least not for free.
You may have caught a glimpse of Laura's youngest child on "Basketball Wives: LA" once last season, but you get another peek at her babies unless VH1 pays up.
“If they want to see my kids, they have to pay me,” said Laura, who is engaged to Gilbert Arenas. Of course, there is a chance that Laura may not be back for another season as Executive Producer Shaunie O'Neal has publicly contemplated changing the cast line up.
When we spoke to Laura she didn't seem at all concerned about the threat, and her sister Gloria Govan doesn't put much stock in Shaunie's producer credit either!
"Shaunie's not an active producer on the show. Shaunie 'created' the show, so she’s just kind of been thrown on as executive producer for anything 'Basketball Wives,' 'Football Wives'…that’s her thing,"she told Just Jonsey, joking that she might run Shaunie over if she saw her in the streets.
"It’s kind of funny that she’s says that because I’m like, 'Really, if you were an active producer on the show would you really have my sister of all people on the show?'" Gloria added. "If I didn’t like you I’m not going to put you on my show."

Weeks ago there were rumors that VH1 was cutting most of the cast from the show, which the network has since denied. Still, Gloria anticipates a few ejections and new faces should the show be picked up for season 3.
"There will be some changes. I don't plan on returning," said Gloria. "I know I've said this before, but seriously...I'm not returning."

Perfect Ponytail: Look We Love

Allison Williams
Even the simplest of hairstyles take work, and Allison Williams knows it! The perfectly-placed ponytail she rocked for last night’s Target & Neiman Marcus holiday collaboration launch party in New York took just under 90 minutes of prep time. “It takes so long,” the Girls actress told of her updo style. “There’s something about a ponytail that’s really difficult to do. Even on Girls, when I have to wear a ponytail, they have to allot extra time.” This time though, she had some help. “There’s not a chance I’d be able to do this myself!” she said. But, with some practice, you can, thanks to some expert tips from celebrity hairstylist Marcus Francis, who has worked with Kerry Washington, Kirsten Dunst, and Jessica Pare. Francis suggests following the natural line of your cheekbone as a guide when placing your ponytail, and tilting your head back to gather your strands. “It leaves the hair at the nape tight and clean,” he said
