Down in New Orleans last night, the Knowles women partied it up for Miss Tina's 60 birthday.  And it was the formal masked lavish occasion you would expect from Beyonce Carter and Solange Knowles.


Check out the celeb studded event (even Miss Tina's new man was there!) inside....

Last night, the Knowles sisters rented out ritzy restaurant Muriel's Jackson Square to host their mother Tina Knowles' big birthday bash.  Bey looked her usual fab self in a gown with a deep plunging neckline, Kelly Rowland showed off her killer body in a cut out dress, and Bey's former co-star Jennifer Hudson even flew down for the occasion.

And the affair was complete with dramatic entrances, masks, and all.

The night's honoree arrived with her new man, actor Richard Lawson, in a horse and carriage.  Get it Miss Tina!

Happy birthday Miss Tina!

Beyonce is putting on her thinking cap and writing essays.  In a spinoff of what she said in a recent interview about the need for gender equality, the pop/R&B queen now has an essay that appears in Maria Shriver's The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Pushes Back from the Brink.  The e-book is a collection of studies and essays that speak on the economic disparities between men and women.  It's available now on Amazon for free.

Jourdan Dunn, who made our jaws drop with her appearance in Beyonce's "Yonce" clip, stars in the hot new DKNY Spring 2014 campaign.  And she's not the only Fashion Killa in the campaign shot back in October in the middle of Times Square. Jourdan stars alongside rapper A$AP Rocky alongside Rihanna's bestie Cara Delevingne,  Dylan Rieder and Eliza Cummings.

In the latest issue of Teen Vouge, A$AP Rocky discussed his love of fashion saying:

“Every day I get dressed based upon mood, how I’m feeling. If I want to be cozy, I might wear cashmere sweats. If I want to stand out, I might wear something like a biker jacket or a lot of jewelry. If I want to dress down and not be noticed, I wear hoodies.”

Rocky is working on his sophomore album in addition to a new A$AP Mob EP called L.O.R.D. (March 4th).

Tia & Tamera Mowry Get Tearful About Racist Commentary On Their Marriages

Posted: 11 Jan 2014 11:00 AM PST

Tia & Tamera Mowry have been the sisters we grew up with from their "Full House" days to "Sister Sister" to those cutesy double-trouble style movies....and now we see their own marriages and kids on thier hit reality show "Tia & Tamera".  But not everyone is basking in the sweetness and love they constantly seem to give.  Check out what the twins say about the extremely painful commentary they receive about their "interracial" marriages...

Friday night on OWN's "Where Are The Now?", bi-racial beauties Tia Mowry Hardrict and Tamera Mowry Housley were their usual emotionally transparent selves (and this is why we love them) about an issue they both face in different ways.

Ever since Tamera became engaged to her FOX News correspondent husband Adam Housley, the two have faced an onslaught of racist assaults about their union.  And it seems the racist comments about her being his black wife "who used to cost a white man $300" are becoming more painful for "The Real" host.   Not to mention comments about her now being less of a black woman.  The things people say are quite unfathomable.

Interestingly, "Instant Mom" star Tia, who is married to black actor Cory Hardrict, says she faces racist remarks in the opposite way. People tell her that her sister married "right"...since she married a white man.

Watch the emotional breakdown below.  And hopefully, more people will become aware of how hurtful their criticisms can be when a couple simply is living a life of love.
