Union also wrote a message on Instagram expressing how blessed she is to see another birthday.

Heyyyyy it’s my birthday… it’s my birthday… woke up feeling blessed… mainly because I simply woke the hell up. Nothing is promised in this life, not even your next breath. Love who you love,” she wrote. “Find your passion and let nothing or no one stop you. Let go of what no longer serves a purpose. Be ok saying no, no thanks or HELL naw… I learned saying no lowers your stress. Be up for an adventure. Take the road less traveled. When you’re wrong simply admit it, take responsibility and be accountable. Be so busy living the life of your dreams that there’s simply no time leftover for negativity, hostility, or gossip. Some wise women once said “it’s yo Thang owwwww do whatchu wanna do…” And they ain’t neva lie… #OneToGrowOn #42.”

It’s unclear what the duo has planned for her special day, but we are pretty sure it will consist of Union cheering on her husband during his first regular season game. The Heat is set to take on the Washington Wizards tonight in Miami.

Happy Birthday Gab.


Oprah Loved Being A Braided Blonde Bombshell In ‘A Wrinkle In Time’



Oprah Winfrey is a blonde bombshell in Ava Duvernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time” and she loved every minute of it. HipHollywood sat down with the media mogul along with Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling to talk about playing the Mrs. and their elaborate hair, make-up and costumes.

“Girl we had hair for days,” gushed Winfrey. “My favorite was the ponytail, the braid.”


Celebrity hair guru Kim Kimble, who frequently works with Beyonce, headed up the film’s hair department. For the film she turned Lady O into a blonde, Reese into a red head and gave Kaling fab braided locks. “They were like [hair] sculptures,” said Kaling who plays Mrs. Who.

So how long did it take to get these ladies out of this world ready? “Hours,” joked Winfrey and Reese in unison.

To be exact, the ladies were in hair and make-up 3-5 hours daily as lead hairstylist Kim Kimble and make-up artists LaLette Littlejohn and Derrick Rutledge got them camera ready. “I think Kim and the team worked for days before, sculpting and making it right,” added Winfrey who plays Mrs. Which.

Derrick Rutledge, Winfrey’s personal makeup artist who also worked on the film, designed rhinestone eyebrows for each Mrs. Which ensemble. Meanwhile costume designer Paco Delgado drew from volcano explosions and depictions of galaxies to create costumes that made Winfrey shimmer and appear larger than life.

In the Disney big screen adaption, the three celestial beings – Mrs. Which, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Whatsit lead 13-year-old Meg (Storm Reid) and others on a journey to rescue the girl’s scientist father (Chris Pine) from evil otherworldly forces.

It’s better seen than simply described, so be sure to check out A Wrinkle In Time in theaters now!
