Former First Lady Michelle Obama is keeping her toned bod in shape following a lavish extended vacation with her husband Barack Obama. Peep the newest clip of Mrs. O inside…

Michelle Obama puts her money where he mouth is. She was HUGE on eating healthy and exercising. So, it was no surprise seeing the former first lady leaving SoulCycle in D.C. on Sunday. This was her 2nd spotting at the gym after working out there on Thursday.

With the Secret Service in tow, Mrs. O was spotted keeping a low profile as she exited the gym after working up a sweat. Looks like the Secret Service even got in on the workout action as well.

Now that Mrs. Obama is back to civilian life, she now spins with the public, according to TMZ. No more private classes, unless she wants to of course. We’re sure Lady O doesn’t mind though since she seemed eager to get back to regular life outside of the White House before leaving.

Peep the clip below:

Now, let us find this SoulCyle in D.C. so we can join in.  Call us when you need a buddy ‘Chelle!

Lauren London & Nipsey Hussle Do Rare Date Night At Lakers Game Post-Baby + Ayesha Curry Shows Off Her Knife Skills, Hangs Out Poolside Afterwards

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 27-02-2017

Well this is rare: Lauren London and Nipsey Hussle were spotted doing date night courtside at the Lakers game last night. More flicks of the new parents, plus shots of Ayesha Curry getting crafty with knives then hitting the pool inside…

 photo Nipsey3.jpg

We don’t see them together out in public often, so it was a surprise to see Lauren London and Nipsey Hussle looking like an ordinary couple courtside at a NBA game.

Last night, the “ATL” actress and the west coast rapper brought their love to the Los Angeles Lakers vs. San Antonio Spurs game at the Staples Center.

 photo Nipsey4.jpg

The couple usually keeps a low-profile, but they decided to hit up the Staples Center for a post-baby date. The couple welcomed their first child together (Lauren’s 2nd), Kross, back in August, pretty much shocking everyone.

 photo nipsey2.jpg

They kept the pregnancy a secret (much like Lauren did when she was pregnant with Lil Wayne’s son). Lauren’s “ATL” co-star T.I. spilled the tea about Lauren’s pregnancy during a radio interview, but folks were still skeptical that she was actually pregnant.

Kross should be about 5-months now and we’re sure his 7-year-old brother Cameron Carter is having a blast with him.

 photo AyeshaCurryGoyaFoodsGrandTastingVillageN87ORJ4NHsTl.jpg

Your favorite WAG and chef enjoyed work and play down in Miami. Ayesha Curry put on her apron and got to work for a cooking demo at Goya Foods’ Grand Tasting Village. The certified chef showed off her knife skills and she whipped up a tasty dish for the viewers.

She recently revealed she’ll be soon releasing a whole line of her own kitchen cookware.  Nice!

The YBF couples stepped out to watch the Oscars in style. A pregnant Ciara, Russell Wilson, Jhene Aiko and Big Sean were all wrapped up in love at Elton John’s annual viewing party. Flicks inside…

 photo 25thAnnualEltonJohnAIDSFoundationOscarTVYE_n2a6-7l.jpg

Elton John hosted his 25th annual AIDS Foundation Oscar viewing party and it was a star-studded affair. Love was all in the air as happily married couple Ciara and Russell Wilson made their way inside the City Of West Hollywood Park. CiCi’s baby bump wasn’t going to keep her inside. Mama wanted to have so fun!

The “I Bet” singer glowed in a beaded dress paired with a cream silk August Getty duster coat to top off her Oscar look. Of course, her NFL quarterback husband got dapper to compliment his wife on the carpet.

The happy couple, who has been living life totally unbothered after Future’s latest antics, was all smiles posing it up with another married couple, Matthew & Renee Morrison.

 photo 25thAnnualEltonJohnAIDSFoundationOscar9IMfxHPRF6tl.jpg

Rapper Big Sean and his girlfriend Jhene Aiko also served up coupledom vibes at the star-studded soiree.

A flowy white deep plunging Tadashi Shoji dress drapped the The “Maniac” singer’s slender bod. She finished her look with Guiseppe Zanni shoes and a Judith Leiber clutch. Meanwhile, her boyfriend got debonair in a black Gucci suit.

Well aren’t they cute or whatever….

 photo 25thAnnualEltonJohnAIDSFoundationOscarzdY4haWE5IHl.jpg

Yvonne Orji wasn’t up for a gold trophy last night, but she definitely brought home the gold. The “Insecure” star worked the carpet in an iridescent sequin Valdrin Sahiti dress and Cesare Paciotti shoes.

Chick had to take a moment to get water-wasted.

Yvonne linked up with fab chick Tracee Ellis Ross – who was also at another pre-Oscar event — in a white and black fringe Yanina Couture gown.  It’s like Joan and the new Toni Childs had a meet-up!

So gorge.

"Orange Is The New Black" star Laverne Cox hardly ever disappoints, styling in this Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna number.

"Luke Cage" star Mike Colter and his wife Iva, Earth, Wind & Fire star Verdine White and his wife Shelly Clark and singer Leona Lewis were also heating up the carpet:

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 27-02-2017

The Oscars were LIT and so were the viewing parties. Tracee Ellis Ross, NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss and several others didn’t attend the actual show, but they gathered to watch like the rest of us. Flicks from the viewing party inside…

 photo TraceeEllisRossMercedesBenz2017AcademyhJ_nWg2JUohl.jpg

Fringe and more fringe! Here’s one way to have all eyes glued on you.

“black•ish” star Tracee Ellis Ross made her way to the annual Mercedes-Benz + ICON MANN Oscars viewing party at Four Seasons Hotel decked out in head-to-toe fringe. The 44-year-old actress stepped up on the scene in a white Yanina Couture gown that featured black detailing, lace cut outs and layers of fringe that showed off her fun side.

 photo MercedesBenz2017AcademyAwardsViewingbiyJa29NiJ2l.jpg

The gorgeous actress pulled her curly tresses into a low bun leaving her dress as the focal point of her entire ensemble. And while fringe can be a tad tricky, she pulled the lock off effortlessly.  We expect nothing less.

 photo MercedesBenz2017AcademyAwardsViewingIC68IuRt4V_l.jpg

Anika Noni Rose went for a more sophisticated, yet sexy look for the viewing party. “The Quad” actress wore an embroidered black one shoulder gown with a gold bodice from Rubin Singer’s pre-Fall 2017 Ready-To-Wear collection.

Inside, Anika caught up with “Greenleaf” star Jason Dirden, who kept it dapper in an all black suit for the soiree.

 photo MercedesBenz2017AcademyAwardsViewing0XWZYBUChNfl.jpg

Former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” nemesis NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss jetted to L.A. from the “A” for the Oscar festivities. With rumors that NeNe will be returning for the 10th season of the show, seeing these two together (again) further adds fuel to the rumors that she will be returning to the show.


 photo MercedesBenz2017AcademyAwardsViewingw8gtv4o7Bksl.jpg

Are we feelin’ NeNe’s Asian-inspired look?

 photo MercedesBenz2017AcademyAwardsViewingYnPk8bFetlAl.jpg

We’ll take this red jumpsuit Kandi is slaying so stunningly. 

Looking GOODT Kandi!

It’s interesting to note, both ladies shared a picture hanging out at the viewing party together on their Instagram pages. We noticed NeNe turned the comments section off on her account, but the comments are open on Kandi’s pic. Hmph.

 photo MercedesBenz2017AcademyAwardsViewingKHHRirN9qJel.jpg

You can never go wrong with a black dress for a formal event. “The People vs. O.J. Simpson” star Keesha Sharp, who recently wrapped up filming of Marshall, was all smiles striking a pose on the carpet.

Actress/singer LeToya Luckett, who recently released a new track titled “Back To Life,” sparkled in a structured long sleeve mini dress.

Everyone’s favorite auntie in their head, “Rosewood” actress Lorraine Toussaint, looked amazing in white and gold.

Oh, hey Tommy Davidson! The comedian/actor flashed a smile and the peace sign before heading inside.

"The Real" co-host Adrienne Bailon was spotted sitting pretty as the Oscars aired live.

Straight Outta Compton actor Allen Maldonado took a break from the bevy of projects he’s currently working on for the Oscar fun. He’s currently shooting scenes for an upcoming horror flick titled, Mimesis: A Symphony of Horror.

"Underground" actress Amirah Vann was all about a printed off-the-shoulder dress and red shoes for the party. She will return on the small screen when "Underground" premieres March 8th.

WIG OR NAH — Halle Berry’s Hairstylist Responds To The Internet Haters

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 27-02-2017

 photo hallehair4.jpg

Halle Berry’s hair at the Oscars became a hot topic when it started trending on Twitter. And most hated it. Halle claims she was celebrating her natural curls, but is this a wig or nah? Decide for yourself inside….

 photo hallehair3.jpg

When Halle Berry rolled up on the red carpet there was more talk about her hair more than anything else. She definitely did something different than her usual pixie cut or long luscious locs.

The Oscar winner rolled up on the red carpet rocking a head full of curls to top off her Atelier Versace look. She said her wild, new “natural” ‘do made her feel feminine and fresh and that’s why she went with the curls.

 photo hallehair1.jpg

 photo hallhair6.jpg

“I have always marched to the beat to my own drum, and I think this red-carpet look encapsulates that,” Halle Berry told Vogue. “The dress is glamorous with a sense of romance that made me feel feminine and fresh. With this look, I celebrate my natural hair by allowing it to be wild and free.”

Was was Halle celebrating her "natural hair"….as in the name of a wig style?

Well, her longtime hairstylist Castillo claims it’s her real hair.  And now that we know that, she def can get a hand clap.

“I would say I cut off at least 5 inches. It created a whole new shape,” he told InStyle. “It’s definitely a new look for her—we went for a very natural, curly, powerful asymmetrical ‘fro. This is something she’e never done before and it’s just ridiculous how good she looks.”

But, not everyone was feeling Ms. Berry’s curls:


Halle Berry obviously let some white beauty student from Tulsa Oklahoma do her hair #oscars

— FunkyDineva (@FunkyDineva) February 27, 2017



Wait… that was Halle Berry’s real hair? Why did it look like a sample wig from a hood beauty shop tho?

— Tony (@TonyBeGoode) February 27, 2017



Halle Berry’s hair is being real disrespectful at this show.

— Pussy Wedges (@Nerdonic) February 27, 2017



Halle Berry’s hair. I would not be mad if she took a bathroom break and traded wigs with somebody, anybody. Love you, though, Halle.

— Michael Arceneaux (@youngsinick) February 27, 2017



Halle Berry’s hair is holding the souls of all the men that have hurt her.

— Greg Edwards (@GregtheGrouch) February 27, 2017



Imagine being the lady behind Halle Berry’s hair tonight. #Oscars

— Michael (@michaelcollado) February 27, 2017



Oh, and the Internet wasn’t done there. Someone made a Twitter page dedicated to her Oscar "wig":

‘Moonlight’ Blessings Keep Coming, In The Form Of Shirtless And FINE Mahershala Ali & Trevante Rhodes In Their Calvins

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 27-02-2017

 photo calvins1_zpsf1izjhjc.jpeg

ALL the blessings.  And we mean all of ‘em.  The men of Moonlight went from suited and booted at the Oscars to shirtless and fine AF in Calvin Klein’s brand new Spring 2017 campaign.  We’ve got every pic you need to see inside…

We already had a major crush on Mahershala Ali since he was kilin’ it as Remy on "House of Cards".  Now, this man went and became a father (hot), won an Oscar (next level hot) and now is the star of Calvin Klein’s newest campaign (peak hotness)…all in less than a week’s time.

He and his 27-year-old Moonlight co-star Trevante Rhodes took it all off for the Spring 2017 campaign, and we couldn’t be more here for it.

Yep, Jesus loves us.  And now we see exactly why all of social media has been super thirsty when it comes to Mr. Trevante.  If you need to know more about him, he was born in the very small and country town of Pontchatoula, LA before moving to Little Elm, TX at the age of 10.  He was a football and track star in school and even went to the Pan-Am Jr. Championship for track.  His breakthrough role is the adult version of Moonlight’s starring character Chiron.

Even with their clothes on, the hotness is real.


The folks at CK didn’t leave out the YBF teens and YBF kids from the film. Actor Ashton Sanders modeled the cotton briefs while Alex Hibbert rocked the tees:

The fellas also suited up for the occasion (they wore Calvin on the red carpet last night as well):

First Look At Will Smith As A Crime Fighting Cop In Fantasy Thriller ‘Bright’ + Keke Palmer Joins New Season Of ‘Berlin Station’

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 27-02-2017

 photo willbright.png

The first look at Will Smith as a crime fighting cop in the upcoming fantasy thriller Bright was just released and we’ve got the trailer. Check it inside, plus details on Keke Palmer’s newest gig….

Will Smith is going back to his crime fighting roots in an upcoming Men In Black-esque film. And the trailer for the film, that debuted during the 89th Academy Awards, was just released.

The Hollywood veteran gets suited in a police uniform to fight crime in David Ayer’s fantasy thriller Bright.

The film follows follows a world where magical creatures live side by side with humans and the police have a division that handles crimes involving magic. Will’s character is forced to work with Orc (Joel Edgerton) to find something that unsavory elements are prepared to kill for – a powerful wand.

 photo willsword.png

Actors Noomi Repace, Edgar Ramírez, Ike Barinholtz and Kenneth Choi round out the cast and the script was writer by Max Landis.

Peep the first look below:

Check out more pics of Will in his police costume on the set HERE.

Bright is set to be released on Netflix in December.

Another YBFer with a new acting gig…

 photo kekenewrole.jpg

With everything Keke Palmer has going on, the YBF star still managed to land a new acting role. The “Scream Queens” star will be joining the cast of “Berlin Station” for the upcoming second season.

"Berlin Station" centers on a CIA office in the midst of an investigation into a now-infamous whistleblower. The series follows Daniel Miller (Richard Armitage), a new arrival to Berlin’s CIA station, who is on a clandestine mission to uncover the source of the Thomas Shaw leaks.

The “I Don’t Belong To You” author will play April Lewis, the newest and youngest case officer assigned to Berlin Station on her first field assignment after making her mark as an analyst at Langley. With a bracing combination of millennial intrepidity and old-fashioned sass, April brings a new-guard mentality often at odds with her old-guard colleagues in a system struggling to preserve its besieged identity. But she is determined to make her mark in Berlin, as she did back home at Headquarters.

Sounds interesting.

Keke will begin filming for the 10-episode second season in April.

Oscar History Was Made SEVERAL Times Last Night — Viola Davis, Mahershala Ali, ‘Moonlight’ Cast & Most Black Winners EVER

Posted by | Posted in Gurl Talk | Posted on 27-02-2017

 photo violaalioscar.jpg

The 2017 Academy Awards was a night of firsts for Viola Davis, Mahershala Ali and black Hollywood actors. Get into their history making wins inside…


 photo violaoscar1.jpg

This Black History Month just got that much sweeter with historical wins at last night’s 2017 Academy Awards.

FENCES star Viola Davis won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, making her the first African-American woman to win an Oscar, Emmy and Tony Award for acting.

Viola’s the 23rd person in history to win the “triple crown” for acting, joining an elite group of actors!

 photo violaoscar2.jpg

After winning the Oscar, the "How To Get Away With Murder" star told E!, "It’s wonderful, glorious. I felt like a princess. I never feel like a princess you know except for my husband [Julius Tennan] when I got married I felt like a princess. It was just you know a culmination of dreaming big and your dreams being bigger than your circumstances."

EGOT crown holder Whoopi Goldberg is also in this elite group of triple crowns, but she won her Tony Award for co-producing the Broadway musical "Thoroughly Modern Millie," not acting in it.  She also nabbed her Emmy for a hosting gig for Beyond Tara: The Extraordinary Life of Hattie McDaniel.

This just further proves that a successful film and TV career can co-exist as Viola is also a bonafide EMMY winner for her role in "How To Get Away With Murder."

It was also a night of firsts for actor Mahershala Ali:

 photo alioscar2.jpg

The Moonlight actor (and new dad) nabbed Best Supporting Actor making him the first Muslim actor to win the award.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the “Luke Cage” star opened up about how he started opening up to different religions and beliefs outside of Christianity – the religion he was taught to believe growing up – and how his mother reacted his life change.

He says his journey started when he went with his wife Amatus and her mom to a mosque in Philadelphia back when they were in college.

 photo alioscar1.jpg

And get this….

Moonlight became the lowest budget film in history to win Best Picture. The coming-of age independent film was created on a small budget of $1.5 million.  By the way, they’re the first all-black cast to ever win the Best Picture category!

Ans then there’s this, which you may have noticed: This Academy Awards ceremony made history with the most black winners…ever.

Mahershala was the first black actor to be awarded an award of the night. “O.J.: Made in America” producer Ezra Edelman became the night’s second black winner for Best Documentary Feature. Moonlight director Barry Jenkins then scooped up the Best Adapted Screenplay award for the screenplay he co-wrote with Tarell Alvin McCraney, whom he shares the win with. Then, Viola scored the Best Supporting Actress award.

While Moonlight won the night’s biggest award, Best Picture, none of the producers (who get the actual award) were black.

Looks like inclusion is slowly making its way into Tinseltown.

Oscars 2017 was quite a doozy!

1. John Legend’s wife Chrissy Teigen was literally ASLEEP during Casey Affleck’s Best Actor Oscar speech. No, really, she was knocked out:


Then, she woke up this morning with a hilarious tweet:

Gotta love her.

Katherine joined the ladies on stage to thank everyone for their support:

6. As Taraji made her way down the red carpet, someone asked her whose team she’s riding with in the Remy Ma vs. Nicki Minaj beef. She had no words, but her face said it all:


A post shared by TheYBF (@theybf_daily) on Feb 26, 2017 at 9:05pm PST


But, in case you were wondering, Taraji is #TeamRemy. Click HERE for the receipts.

One tourist, who identified himself as "Gary from Chicago", yes, he got real specific, was filming the entire charade on his phone, despite Jimmy telling him he didn’t need to.  His fiance was also in the group.  Once she revealed their wedding date, Jimmy had her fave actor who she had just pointed out, Denzel Washington, come up and bless their union.




Get into the whole video below where Gary — who was holding his fiancé’s purse and all — takes Mahershala Ali‘s Oscar he just won to snap a few selfies:


And we’re pretty sure Gary’s about to get 15 minutes of fame out of this.  Even the Chicago Bulls are fans:


Gary from Chicago! We’ve got you covered if you want to come to a game! #Oscars
