Danny and Russell Simmons’ 14th Annual Art For Life Benefit went down this past Saturday at Fairview Farms in Bridgehampton.  And we’ve got the celeb pics and the millions of dollars raised inside….

Russell Simmons had his daughters, Aoki & Ming Lee, on hand to witness over $ 1.5 million being raised at the Art For Life Benefit this weekend. Ming is the spitting image of her mom Kimora.  These two gals are growing up to be fabulous young ladies.

Nene Leakes’ Christmas Bash With Her Kids, Kenya Moore, Mimi Faust & More + Marlo Hampton’s “Glam It Up Girls!” Brunch



Reality tv and sitcom star Nene Leakes threw a stylish holiday bash for friends and family in Atlanta recently.  See Nene ring in the holidays with Kenya Moore, Terri J. Vaughn and more inside and photos from Marlo Hampton’s charity event….


Celebrating her year of success, Nene Leakes threw a huge holiday bash in Atlanta recently.  



She and "ex" husband Gregg Leakes looked like royalty as they walked into the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Atlanta.  NeNe loves herself some black lace doesn’t she?



And Gregg looked very dapper dancing with Santa’s girls at the party.




And it was a family affair with Nene’s kids Brentt and Bryson also in tow.  And we assume Brent’s baby’s mama.


"RHOA" co-star Kenya Moore helped celebrate the season with Nene.  Not feeling that dress for Kenya in the least bit.



Actress Terri J. Vaughn was spotted with husband Karon Riley.


Terri also posed with Mimi Faust and Ebony Steele from the Ricky Smiley Morning Show.


Former "BBW" star Jennifer Williams and Mimi’s BFF and co-star Ariane Davis.


Reality tv producer Carlos King also joined in the fun. 




Mimi and Jennifer flashed their pearly whites for the camera.




Hey Miss Lawrence!  The fierceness was out honey.


Derrick J also snapped a few holiday pics with Nene.


Tameka Raymond posed with Nene inside the party.



Jennifer Williams posed with Tameka for a pic too.


Q. Parker’s wife Sharlinda was also spotted with publicist April Love.


Designer Reco Chapple was there.


Fun times.  Bet you Greg hit the Dougie like he was 20 again.


And speaking of Atlanta folks…. 


Marlo Hampton, former "RHOA" co-star, hosted a brunch for her "Glam It Up Girls!" foundation.



The brunch was hosted at Neiman Marcus Buckhead where Marlo posed with Neiman Marcus’ publicist, Rebecca Brodnan.


Marlo’s foundation focuses on helping underprivileged teen girls in foster homes transition into life on their own.




In addition to seminars on skin, finances, and styling, Marlo offered the ladies words of encouragement saying, 

"I stand here today a version of myself I had never dreamed possible. I could not have imagined arriving at a place of inner peace, confidence, strength, perseverance and drive. I could never have envisioned arriving at a place of gratitude, for through my hardships, my pain and endless difficult times I have become the woman I am today."

At least she’s putting her flyness (whoever is funding it) to good use.

BONUS: Check out Kenya’s melt down of delusion from last night’s "RHOA" from their last night in Anguilla.

REALITY CHICKS: Gloria Govan GOES BADASS For “Clean Ops” + Marlo Hampton’s GLAM Photoshoot

Reality tv chicks Gloria Govan and Marlo Hampton have been out and about filming movie scenes and posing for photoshoots. Get the deets on what the ladies have been up to inside…..

"BBW: LA" star Gloria Govan was spotted on the set of her upcoming flick Clean Ops which hits screens this winter.

In the movie, she’ll play a ballerina by day and an assassin by night who works for a boss named "Mr. Drop."


Watch Gloria in action here:


And in Atlanta………..

Marlo Hampton may not be returning to "RHOA" but she’s still posing for photoshoots (with hair by Miss Lawrence).

She recently got dolled up in a few Chanel accessories.

She also went for the goddess look.

And she had lots of fab pieces to pick from.

Marlo also recently participated in the Jeffrey Fashion Cares show.



*UPDATE* Jason Kidd ARRESTED In The Hamptons For DWI!

This is NOT the way to start off a brand new contract.  The newest New York Knick, Jason Kidd, was arrested for DWI after partying it up in the Hamptons last night.


Deets inside…

He’s 39 and been in the league for 18 years.  But Jason Kidd is still making rookie mistakes.  Just days after signing his brand new 3-year $ 9 million contract with the New York Knicks, Mr. Kidd took his wife, Porschla and their 2 kids (including brand new baby girl) to the Hamptons.  And was arrested for Driving While Intoxicated after having a few too many.

After attending Ne-Yo & George Lucas’ big "Fostering A Legacy" benefit in East Hampton Saturday night (pictured above), Jason was stopped by Southampton Police early Sunday morning.  The police department confirms that Kidd was taken into custody, arraigned on a misdemeanor DWI charge early this morning, and then released on his own recognizance.

There has been no statement by Jason on the matter as of yet.  Jason bought a home in the Watermill section of the Hamptons last year for $ 5.97 mill.


*UPDATE* Jason was spotted getting carried out the club, SL East, right before he copped a DWI. Apparently he was so drunk that he couldn’t manage to walk out alone. But he surely hopped behind the wheel of his car. And he crashed it-which led to his citation.

Ne-Yo Hosts George Lucas, Arsenio, Rocsi, Russell Simmons & More At Foundation Benefit In The Hamptons

It was a fabulous evening for a cause Saturday night as Ne-Yo’s 1st Foundation benefit was in full swing in The Hamptons.  Check out a few flicks from the "Lazy Love" singer’s celeb filled Compound Foundation event inside….

Celebs came out to East Hampton, NY yesterday to celebrate Ne-Yo’s 1st Annual Compound Foundation "Fostering A Legacy" Benefit.

The charity event took place at the private estate of Bill and Michele Nuti, CEO of NCR and Chairman of Sprint.  As for the celeb guest list: Arsenio Hall, Russell Simmons, George Lucas, Paula Abdul, Andre Agassi, Anthony Anderson, Michael Strahan, Jason Kidd, Adrienne Bailon and Rocsi Diaz.

Since the event was co-sponsored by Porsche, attendees snapped a few pics with the whips on display.  Rocsi and actress Elise Nea l were on hand for the benefit.

Ne-Yo brought his fiance Monyetta along…who flashed her engagement ring as usual.

Ne-Yo’s newest signee, Adrienne Bailon, was there in a strapless blue gown.

Ne-Yo also had his protege Ravaughn (standing next to Adrienne) on hand.  And DJ D Nice was on the 1′s and 2′s.

Russell aint slick. 


Jason Kidd (before his arrest) and wife Porschla snapped a pic with director George Lucas.  Mr. Lucas–who has a connection with Ne-Yo after directing him in Red Tails–was the honoree of the night.  Fab times all around.
