HipHollywood was on the pink carpet for The Ladylike Foundation’s Fifth Annual “Women of Excellence Awards” over the weekend where Cookie Johnson, Shaun Robinson, and Wendy Raquel Robinson were just three of several women honored for their work in the community.
“To be honored for my work that I do on TV and off camera also, and to be here with women who represent positive images of black women is very important to me,” the Access Hollywood host shared.
“If we don’t invest in our future which is actually tomorrow, these young ladies can go in so many different directions right now … if we don’t take the time, to make the time, to invest in our future, there’s no telling what’s going to happen,” Wendy shared when asked what it means to give back.
The Ladylike Foundation is a faith-based organization that uplifts women, teaching etiquette, and how to be beautiful inside. And when it comes to inner beauty, these women have it locked in.
“When you have a big heart, and you give back, and you listen, and you’re a good friend, and you’re selfless … all that means inner beauty,” Holly Robinson Peete, the afternoon’s emcee shared.
50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”
Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.
While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!
All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.
And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.
Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
