lalafurcoat

Media personality turned actress Lala Anthony has another reason to smile and celebrate. The Think Like A Man actress has joined the cast of Starz’s drama series Power. Andy Bean and Debbi Morgan were also just added to the series.

Lala will play as LaKeisha Grant, a childhood friend to Tasha St. Partick (Naturi Naughton) and her closest confidant who is kept in the dark on certain aspects of Tasha’s life out of necessity. Andy Bean plays Greg, Angela’s (Lela Loren) super-fit and over-protective boyfriend who is not what he seems. Debbi Morgan will play Estelle, Tasha’s mom.

According to Deadline.com, “The project tells the story of wealthy New York City nightclub owner James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), who wants to build an empire and turn the club into a Fortune 500 business, but there’s just one problem: He is living a double life. When he is not in the club, he is the kingpin of the most lucrative drug network in New York for a very high-level clientele“.

Congrats Lala! Keep rising to the top; we love and support you over at YDBR.

From The South Bronx To Los Angeles: Jennifer Lopez Receives The 2,500th Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

jlohollywood1

I am so proud of Jennifer Lopez! I love and respect what she does. No matter what, she always represents for young Latina and Black girls in the inner cities and she always remember her South Bronx community. From the rough streets in Castle Hill to a ‘Fly Girl‘ on In Living Color, now J. Lo received the 2,500th Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the W Hotel. It was much deserved! For the special and very emotional occasion, J Lo got glammed-up in a cashmere & silk white & coral floor length gown, accented with a bowtie belt from fashion house Christian Dior’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection. She accessorized her outfit with a pair of black Brian Atwood strapped pumps and a Valentino clutch. J Lo was joined by her parents, children, boyfriend Casper, manager Benny Medina, actor/producer Keenan Ivory Wayans, and rapper Pitbull. Check out the fabulous photos below:
