Toccara Jones- Model has slimmed down and is now marketing an exercise tape
Brandy visits Philly again. Love ya girl, I bought your new CD. I snuck into the “Green Room” to get this photo. I got some of the best photos from this room before they kicked me out. As a freelancer that has photos published internationally, I think it’s a mistake to keep me in the Press Room which is less colorful. I had about 3 photos published on Essence.com from this event.Jamie Foxx wraps up with the Law Abiding Citizen filming this week.
Yolanda Adams, beautiful voice, beautiful person
What the heck is Patti wearing?

Mycheal Knight- Fashion Designer and my Laiya St. Clair. Somehow the Beat let Laiya slip away. She was the best, connected out to here, wonderful person too, generous; I know she will bounce back somewhere else and be better than ever!!
