Magic Johnson & Samuel L. Jackson's bromance continues!   The twosome and their wives (LaTonya Richardson is not pictured) were snapped roaming the streets of Portofino, Italy for their annual family & friends vacay.  Check out the pics inside...

EBONY magazine's July 2014 cover couple Magic and Cookie Johnson were spotted shopping and wining and dining on the Italian coast yesterday.  Every year, Magic, Samuel and their families travel to the gorgeous region for a week or two of well deserved luxeness.  And 2014 is no different.

The plaid shorts wearing, colorful polo rocking men chilled outside for a but.  And later had some dinner and wine with friends and fam, probably while talking about all their upcoming business deals and movie deals (Sam is filming the next Avengers installment called "Age of Ultron" and is about to start filming Tarzan):

PREVIEW: Eva Marcille, Nancy "Mama" Jones & More Star In "Touched" Movie About Child Molestation

Eva Marcille & Mama Jones have a new job, y'all.  Self-proclaimed Humanitarian, singer and author Terrance Tykeem has enlisted the help of the former Top Model and Jim Jones' mom and others for a new movie, Touched, he created to raise awareness of the growing issue of child molestation.    See the previews inside....

 

Eva & Mama Jones landed a job in a new movie by author Tykeem.  His new book, “Touched: When Innocence is Stolen the Pain Lasts Forever,” will be used as the premise. The book brings to light the silent suffering of the victims of child molestation.  And the song “Touched,” inspired by the book, is a ballad written and performed by Tykeem along with songstress/dancer Troi Lauren. 

Tykeem says the song is also a PSA.  And it stars Eva Marcille along, radio personality Cherry Martinez, reality stars Ramona Rizzo and Mama Jones, in their acting debut.

 

According to the press release:

Marcille, a new mom having given birth to daughter Marley Rae this past January, was eager to participate in the campaign and has vowed that this is just the beginning of her dedication to the fight against child sexual abuse. “In the US, 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men will be touched inappropriately in their lifetime. These numbers are staggering,” exclaims Tykeem. Tykeem believes that the first step in putting an end to this human tragedy is to speak out about the issue.

Terrance Tykeem is a native of Atlanta, GA and grew up in the foster care system. He is a former NFL pro-athlete, singer, producer, music industry executive and former offender. His life has gone through many transitions. These transitions have led him to put his experiences down on paper as an author, as well as create the non-profit We Stand Up Coalition as a call to action. Growing up in foster care, Tykeem fought off many inappropriate advances from adults and saw many instances of child sexual abuse, leading him to pen the book, “Touched.”

 

Check out the trailer of the movie below, as well as the preview of the accompanying music video:

 

 

Well, it's a good cause.

If you've been watching "R&B Divas", you know that singer Monifah is taking the plunge into married life with girlfriend Terez. We've got a sneak peek at her wedding inside, plus why her daughter wasn't present...

When season three of "R&B Divas Atlanta" wraps Wednesday (June 25) at 10 PM/ET, Monifah will be a married woman.

Monifah & Terez rocked black gowns on their big day.  And Monifah's cast members--Meelah Williams, Syleena Johnson, KeKe Wyatt, Angie Stone and Latavia Roberson--traveled to Hawaii for Monifah and Terez’s much anticipated wedding, but it seems everyone was on hand to congratulate the newlyweds...except for Monifah's own daughter.

The folks over at MadameNoir caught up with the "Touch It" singer (above with her mom, Terez and Terez's mom) about how she handled her super religious daughter being a no show.

"You have to live your life for you. You demand respect in that area of your life because that is your life to live. I think acceptance of people’s decisions and beliefs and choices in those things is very key. You cannot change people. You have to keep it on you and do your best to be the example of what you’d like to see—in them or in the world period. That’s really how I’ve been living my life. It helps me make much better decisions because you know, you can’t change people. You’ll be disappointed the minute you try. That’s not even our place. I’ve learned that acceptance is key in most of those situations. You have to protect yourself and your spirit and you have to make tough decisions. It’s not always easy."
 

Below are more photos from the big day, including a never-before-seen photo of Monifah with Terez and her fellow Diva.  By the way, Monifah helped to design her own dress:
