When Kerry Washington makes an appearance, the entire world comes to a slow and steady pause … because it’s rare when the beauty shows her face.

A glowing Washington stepped out with her husband Nnamdi Asomugha on Thursday night in a rare appearance in Los Angeles. The Scandal star and her ex-NFL boo attended Ambassadors for Humanity Gala Benefiting USC Shoah Foundation in Hollywood, California.

The couple’s date night marked their first public appearance since welcoming their now 2-month-old baby boy, Caleb. Washington stunned in a sexy, low-cut, floral print Phillipp Plein dress paired with black scrappy heels. Washington also rocked her hair in a sexy ponytail.

During the event, the mother of two honored Star Wars creator George Lucas and his wife, businesswoman Melody Hobson.

Washington, who is known to be very private about her personal life, shared a snapshot on Instagram of herself honoring the couple, writing: “Using empathy to end hate. Such an important cause! Now more than ever.”


Nnamdi and Kerry welcomed Caleb October 5th and, of course, we have not seen photos of the little guy, but then again, we haven’t seen images of the pair’s 2-year-old daughter Isabelle either.

“If I don’t talk about my personal life, it means I don’t talk about my personal life,” Washington told E! News at the 2016 SXSW New Rules of Social Stardom panel back in March.

She also seemingly shut down divorce rumors that are constantly plaguing her and Asomugha. “That means not only did I not tell you when I was getting married, it also means if somebody has rumors about what’s going on in my marriage, I don’t refute them, because I don’t talk about my personal life.”

Kerry and the former Raiders player wed in secret in 2013.


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.
