Some of our YBF favs descended upon Atlanta this week to help Ludacris celebrate the 9th Annual Luda Day Weekend. See pics of Angela Simmons, Monyetta Shaw, Big Tigger, Keshia Knight Pulliam, Lance Gross, NeYo and many more inside. Plus, Ne Yo and Monyetta seem to still be pretty close these days....
It's that time of the year again...not Labor Day..it's LudaDay in Atlanta. The annual charity weekend is comprised of a series of events that raise money for The Ludacris Foundation( to further their commitments toward youth and the Atlanta community). Ne-Yo was spotted walking in with his mom Lorraine. His Compound Foundation was one of the weekend's biggest donors.
Among the Atlanta notables in the building for the Annual Charity Bowl Event were ex-couple Ne-Yo and "Atlanta Exes" star Monyetta Shaw. Fans of Monyetta's new show know that she and Ne-Yo still live together and are very serious about co-parenting and raising their kids in a healthy environment.
But...we're just saying...this looks like a bit more than co-parenting. It's great that they can "play" together.
We all know that the Simmons family prides itself on philanthropic works (e.g. The Art For Life gala) and Angela is continuing down that road.
Keshia Knight Pulliam attended with her boo Big Tigger.
In addition to supporting Luda, Keshia does great things for youth in Atlanta with her Kamp Kizzy Foundation.
Actor/photographer Lance Gross took time to give back to the ATL community too. By the way, he recently signed on to start in the rom-com "BET On Love" with Brandy.
It looks like Walter Jackson's brief stint of RHOA as Kenya Moore alleged boyfriend is still getting him into all the right parties and events in Atlanta. And since Kenya's away in Puerto Rico....he showed up to the event to support. And it looks like he's trimmed down....looking good Walt!
We're impressed that with all of his success, Ludacris (above with Kenny Burns) is committed to bringing awareness of the struggles of under privileged teens to the forefront.
Luda chatted it up with Angela.
Dwight Howard, of the Houston Rockets, made the trek to Atlanta.
Dwight bulked up for the camera with Big Tigger.
Keshia had a chance to catch up with her good friends Monyetta and Angela.
Radio personlity Ryan Cameron played in the tournament.
Singer Mila J took time out from promoting her new song "My Main" (featurign Ty Dolla Sign) to attend the festivities.
Kenny and daddy-to-be Lance played against each other. Heeey Lance.
Although Luda touched the trophy, his team did not beat the squad lead by music producer Lil Ronnie (who played on behalf of the Josh Powell Foundation to benefit youth athletics). Kooks like a fab night of giving back!
A few weeks ago, Tracee Ellis Ross decided to show what happens when you look up the lyrics to a rap song you don't know and attempt to play rap-along-to-this by yourself. And now, she's at it again with Tyga & Young Thug's track "Pass Me The Hookah". Peep the hilariousness inside...
This is what folks look like who just attempt to read lyrics of a rap song. Tracee Ellis Ross decided to look up the words to "Pass Me The Hookah" to try to murder the track herself.
T-Murda strikes again! I attempt to decipher the lyrics of yet another song I hear on the radio. This time, it’s “Pass Me the Hookah” by Tyga and a fella named Young Thug.
Girl....we want you to stick to what you do best. Being a friend-in-our-head through all your tv characters, being fly as hell, and doing hilarious ish like this. Peep T-Murda below:
Meanwhile, Tracee's set to star in the upcoming ABC comedy "black-ish", alongside Anthony Anderson, premiering September 24th. Can't wait!
Almost a month ago, the Anthonys took a family trip to South Africa. And now, LaLa has shared a few pics with Vogue.com. We've got our faves inside...
After spending part of the summer in Cape Town, South Africa, LaLa is sharing a few of the pics her Knicks baller husband Carmelo and family snapped themselves. The couple celebrated their 4 year wedding anniversary right before the trip, and they're still looking happily in love.
Their African safari with son Kiyan and La's mom, brother and his fam looked like one to remember:
The fam also hit up Nelson Mandela's home.
And snapped pics with the wildlife on the Shambala Private Game Reserve and while on a tour or two. Gotta love those fab family trips...
