Just In Time For the Holidays

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Lovely ladies Nia Long, Sanaa Lathan, and Gabrielle Union are featured in the December issue of Essence Magazine. You get a special holiday treat three fold on these ladies discussing different topics such as gossip blogs:

Gabrielle: Just last week somebody gave me a baby. This isn’t Perez Hilton or the White gossip people, these are women of color, specifically Black women who, for whatever reason, don’t like the company I keep.

Sanaa: She’s talking about the gossip sites.

Essence: The blogs.

Sanaa: That are run by Black women.

Gabrielle: And now because everyone is clamoring for celebrity tidbits, the bigger gossip sites and even mainstream entities are picking up on it. No fact-checking, no nothing. And in one week’s time, there were like five different dudes, a baby—I’m a homewrecker. In literally seven days. I can’t point the finger at the White media. They don’t care about us. Paparazzi are not staked out in front of any of our houses. They are not going through our garbage because they don’t care about us in that way. So when you hear crap about us, it is coming from our own community, which hurts.

Gabby better learn the game, coverage and publicity is good for her little career. She must be mad about this or this , which was confirmed by Bossip sources.

    They all are beautiful in their own right…but what’ up with the Stepford wives look? Must they all have the same overdone and tiyad ass weave…

  • Jus Another Opinion

    Damn I didn’t even read the excerpt, I just commented on the pic.

    I agree with Sanaa and Gab, it is women of color who have low self esteem and are on these blogs and want other women to think and act like them. I already said my two cents on the JHUD and James post, so no need to repeat. I was floored when the blogger was talking about scarstic and disrespectful man being good.

    Gabby you are a single woman and if you want to date then do that don’t listen to what hateful hoes on these blogs have to say on here. Like I said try and listen to salt n’ peppa “None of yo buiness.”

    I feel ya. And though this type of thing (gossip blogs with negative stories) comes with the territory of being famous, I can’t help but feel where they are coming from. Which is why I could never be famous (no matter how much of a star I think I am šŸ™‚

    Dear Mary J,

    How do you cope with these types of struggles, being the HUGE celebrity that you are?

    All my love,


  • Jay

    Gabriele Union makes a VALID point. Black people tear each other down constantly and it sad. Instead of being proud of the few African American women that are making some type of noise in Hollywood…people want to focus on a few pictures and create a fictional story out of it. Nia Long, Gabriele Union and Sanaa Lathan are great actresses and need to have more positive coverage about them!! Glad Essence is taking the time out to praise them rather than bring them down.

    She should be happy someone is talking about her, she hasn’t had a hit movie since Bad Boys. All these black actresses and singers should be happy someone remembers them because hardly any of them put out quality entertainment. Most of them just dress up and go to parties to stay relevant.
