Quick Flix: The Cast of ‘Girlfriends’ Reunites

Isn’t this a sight to behold?

Tracee Ellis-Ross (Joan), Golden Brooks (Maya), & Jill Marie Jones (Toni) had impromptu reunion over the weekend. The trio were in attendance at an Uptown Magazine pre-Oscar fete to celebrate Black Hollywood.

Of the reunion, Tracee tweeted:

“It was a happy accident that @MsJillMJones Golden and i were at the same party! Wish @RealPersiaWhite was with us”

All of the ladies look great! I wish an onscreen reunion would take place. 

Quick Flix: Kim Kardashian – ‘Sweatpants Hair Tied Chillin’ With No Makeup On’

Kim Kardashian has over 12 million Twitter followers & over 8 million Facebook “likes”, making her one of the most visible media figures on the internet. I think her next goal is to be one of the most popular people on Instagram, as she posts an endless amount of photos on the popular image sharing application.

Her most recent photo, captioned ‘Sweatpants hair tie[d] chillin with no make up on’, features the reality television star embodying the lyrics made famous by Drake.

According to the Young Money rapper, that’s when women are the prettiest. Do you agree?

Watch: Kate Upton Follows Kim Kardashian & Paris Hilton With New Carl’s Jr. Commercial

Just like Paris Hilton & Kim Kardashian once were, Kate Upton is now Hollywood’s “It” girl — & just like the other two celebrities, she’s now got her very own Carl’s Jr. commercial.

The 19-year-old supermodel, who made headlines recently for gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated’s annual Swimsuit Issue (above), is shown in a convertible at a drive-in movie. Throughout the duration of the commercial, she’s seen devouring the tasty-looking burger in the sexiest way imaginable. She then undresses throughout the meal, as others look on.

Watch below:

Congrats: Female Rapper Iggy Azalea Makes XXL’s 2012 Freshman Class

I’ve been a fan of Iggy Azalea for quite some time now (listen to one of her latest singles, “The Last Song”, on my brixTunes playlist to the right of this post), so it’s great to see her making waves in the music industry.

Despite the fact that she’s already built a huge fan base online, Iggy is now garnering mainstream attention, as the T.I. & Jimmy Iovine co-signed emcee is the only female to be recognized on XXL’s Annual Freshman Class list this year.

According to XXL:

“In the past five years that XXL has been picking Freshman classes, never once has making the list been easy. This year included. Similar to 2011, the hype around the Freshmen Class has continued to grow by leaps and bounds, surprising even us with its popularity. For this class the buzz began earlier than ever, four months before the cover was even shot. And it seemed like everyone had a list. From subdued music fans to diehard rap junkies, from Twitter stalkers to industry heavies and featherweights, folks wanted their list to be the XXL list. We listened, asked opinions, took notes”

Iggy is accompanied by Machine Gun Kelly, Danny Brown, Kid Ink, Future, Roscoe Dash, Hopsin, Macklemore, Don Trip & French Montana. Though I’m only familiar with four of the rappers listed, I’m sure she’s in great company.

Dancing With The Stars Cast Announced, Steve Urkel Included

This brand new cast of ‘Dancing With The Stars’ was just announced! While the new celebrity dancers are a bore overall, there are a few that surprised me.

Check out the full cast of season 14, courtesy of EW, below:

Jaleel White, actor. He’s appeared in shows like Grown Ups and Step by Step, but you know him best as Urkel from Family Matters.

Gavin DeGraw, singer-songwriter. He’s the crooner behind such songs as “Not Over You,” “In Love with a Girl” and the theme song from One Tree Hill.

Jack Wagner, actor. He’s either recognizable as a co-star on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful or the ex-beau of Heather Locklear.

William Levy, telenovela hottie. A Cuban-American actor and former model who’s big on the Mexican soap circuit.

Donald Driver, wide receiver. He plays for the Green Bay Packers and is looking to follow in the footsteps of season 12 winner Hines Ward.

Katherine Jenkins, opera singer. The Welsh mezzo-soprano actually crooned in the ballroom last April.

Sherri Shepherd, talk show host. She’ll juggle her dance floor duties with her gig on The View.

Melissa Gilbert, actor. She’s done a ton of TV since Little House on the Prairie but she’ll be forever known as Half Pint.

Roshon Fegan, actor. You won’t recognize him unless you Tivo Disney Channel’s Shake It Up20 times a day.

Maria Menounos, TV anchor. Extra! Extra! Guess who ET and Access Hollywood won’t be interviewing after every show?

Martina Navratilova, tennis great. A Grand Slam just doesn’t compare to winning a mirror ball trophy, apparently.

Gladys Knight, singer. She had the moves with the Pips. Why shouldn’t the empress of soul try to conquer DWTS?

The new season premieres March 19 on ABC. Will you be watching?
