Celebs Do Pre-BET Awards Events

Look who was spotted sporting her newly slimmed down body this weekend:

Mo'Nique clearly has been working it out these days and was looking quite fab at the Pre-BET Akademiks and BET Oasis Spa Lounge Sunday afternoon.   Congrats to her. More celebs doing the pre-parties when you read the rest...

Eva hit the event looking fly:

Loving it all.  Even the doorknockers. Terrance J came through:

And so did Jackie-O and Jazze Pha.

And Lil Mama.  I'm mad he brought that drink on the red carpet. Day 26 stopped by:

And Will kicked it with my girl Christina from Akademiks.

Valeisha Butterfield rocked a cute look.

DJ D-Nice was there with Andre Royo.

And so was Toccara.  By the way, make sure you check out that same Summer 08 issue of UPTOWN Toccara and Andre are reading--especially since I'm in it. *shameless plug*Elsewhere in LA, celebs hit up the BMI Urban brunch yesterday at Murano:

The Simmons sisters were there loking cute.  Angela rocked the grecian goddess look while Vanessa rocked an LV Damier bagand YSL Cruise Collection shoes.  Some of my fave shoes of the summer by the way.

Elise Neal was spotted with Regina King.  And damn, did Elise just get out the Botox chair or something?  She did admit to getting plastic surgery so I'm sure she hits the botox injections like it's candy.  Chick is looking overly surprised in every pic:

Mr. Nasir was there.

Your face is looking mad immovable Elise.  Not sure if that's a good look or not.

And Jazze, that pinky is killing me.

Regina looked pretty fab.

And singer/songwriter Sean Garrett was there too.

And so were Cool (of Cool and Dre) and Rick Ross. Teairra Mari hosted the Jean Addicts Pre-BET launch yesterday:

She rocked an extra pink look. Nicole Murphy was there:

Alright Nicole. "Model" Vida Guerra was there:

And T kicked it with her girls:

Fun times.

I know my comment is all

I know my comment is all late, and the discussion is closed on this post. I still have to say Nicole Murphy looks so much more beautiful and alive and colorful since she left Eddie Murphy. I love Eddie like any good black girl does, but, honey, she glows. So does Strahan. Never on or off the field does he look as powerful as he does when standing next to her. Much love and power to them!

You guys give to many passes to fat people. You're a bunch of fat girl lovers. There's nothing sexy or even cute about that. This fat ish is an epidemic yall. It's killing our community. Stop already! Carry your fat arses to the gym!!!!

Ok let's start with Monique,

Ok let's start with Monique, she looks great, I just hope she doesn't lose to much weight and end up looking all sick like Star Jones did! Eva looks really good and Nicole, Eddie Murphy's ex, looks ok until you really get up close, because that close up shot is scary and that's real!

[quote comment="125368"][quote comment="125359"]I just don't get the Nicole Murphy compliments. I get it that she is slim after having a crapload of kids, but she really looks like a tranny in the face. I guess she gets hyped for being light skin, slim and having green eyes. BUT....I do give Michael Strahan credit for after divorcing his wife, having a relationship with a black woman. At least I think she is a woman...sorry, couldn't help it![/quote] I agree that she loks a mess. She and Eddie both look plastic as hell. I'm sure she had a lot of work done on that body, as well as the face. I just think she looks...hard. She is quite slim but she's had plenty of help with that. And could she is never dressed appropriately either. not for her age of for the events she attends...someone asked why Jackie-o and eva were there. Why was she there?

Ok Nicole whatever your last

Ok Nicole whatever your last name is (i.e Eddie's baby mama), we know you pushed out five babies and still managed to work out but time to cover up now. Leave something to the imagination, mama! REgina King is looking fabulous! Love her skin! Its winter here so I'm lovin the summer outfits especially the simmons sisters.

I hope Monique is losing

I hope Monique is losing weight the right way...diet and exercise because she has such a pretty face i would hate to see her look deflated like star jones or look odd like Kelly Price (i know Kelly didn't have gastric but she looked weird after weight loss). That way her arms and whatnot will firm up as she loses the weight. She doesn't seem like the gastric type but you never know. Sistas need to get this weight thing together (not all but on a large scale).

I appreciate Mo’Nique trying

I appreciate Mo’Nique trying to get to a healthier weight but I’m wondering if she’s working out or did bypass. I also wonder if slimming down will impact her career, because some people seem to like her because she shares their plus size. I do think, though, that sleeveless is not her best look. With all the big girls slimming down, I’m wondering if that will encourage “regular” women to get on the ball. I walk around my city and am amazed at how big some women are. I am trying to slim down as well, and they motivate me, because chicks far younger than me look both older and very uncomfortable because they are seriously overweight. More power to everybody on the slim-down path. I really like Regina King with the haircut, it looks more contemporary. She doesn’t get a lot of credit, but she always looks natural and pretty, not botox’ed up or unnnatural youthful, just nice. Valeshia Butterfield’s whole look, down to the shoes, is very cute. I agree,Mo has definately influenced me to get healthier.I look up to her,and when I see her loosing weight it makes me want to loose weight also.Its really not about getting skinny,its about getting healthier.
