Gone are the days of witch costumes and pumpkins.
Last year, actress Julianne Hough came under fire for dressing up in Blackface in efforts to impersonate Orange is the New Black star, Uzo Aduba. In past years, party goers went as far as to dress as slain teen, Trayvon Martin and the man responsible for his death, George Zimmerman.
This year, adults and even kids have taken it to another level, hitting the streets as Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice and his wife, Janay Palmer. Rice was suspended indefinitely from the NFL in September after video surfaced of the football player viciously attacking his then fiancée.
On Sunday night during Chris Paul’s CP3 “Celebrity Sever” Dinner, HipHollywood caught up with former professional boxer Laila Ali to get her take on the controversial costumes.
“Nothing surprises me anymore unfortunately. It’s really sad that in our society now anything goes,”Ali explained. “People think things are funny and they put it all over social media and it’s really not.”
In one photo floating around the Internet, a man goes as Blackface and stands alongside a woman, dressed as Janay with a black eye. In another image, a child also in Blackface can be seen sporting a Ravens jersey while carrying a doll by her hair.

Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy
Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.
If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage. So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.
Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.
“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”
“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”
To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.
“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”
