Basketball Wives executive producer Shaunie O’Neal is crossing over into fashion … again. The shoe hoarder and fashion lover has teamed up with jewelry designer Simone I. Smith to create the capsule collection, “Forever Shaunie.”

O’Neal gave us a sneak peak of the collection during a recent sit down, before she and Smith officially unveiled the collection.

“Simone I. Smith, LL Cool J’s other half,  has a beautiful jewelry line … and we’re working on a little project … coming very, very soon.” revealed O’Neal.

Now the line is available and the two friends couldn’t be more excited.

“Through our love and admiration for one another, we decided to create a special collection,”  explained Simone. “Each piece is inscribed with three powerful words that describes my friend – Loyal, Fabulous and Loving”.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First



If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
