Angela Simmons Gives Tips On Keeping Edges Whipped After Workout



Team edges on three, 1-2-3! Over the past several months, Angela Simmons has been kicking into high gear, getting her body into tip top shape. Rev Run’s daughter has something to show for her hard work because her body is simply incredible. But how does the star keep her edges under control after a good sweat?

While on the red carpet for Debra Lee’s “PRE” BET Awards Show dinner, Simmons broke it down. “I’m using this product called Beautiful Textures, it’s a textural manageable system and it’s worked for me really well,” she said. “It’s a product that has no real harsh chemicals in it. When I work out, it’s really easy to blow it out after. Blow it out, easy and then use a flat iron. I [also] braid my hair up a lot. It’s a mixture of doing both.”

As for workout tips, the star says it’s all about being consistent. “Even if you can’t do a lot in one day I think it’s important to just get it in. If I can’t even get an hour in, I need at least 20-minutes to run, to have a moment.”

Simmons is currently working on her new web show, Angela I Am TV, an online platform for up and coming designers and musicians.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
