Fun!

Inside Keyshia Cole’s Baby Shower

R&B singer Keyshia Cole welcomed the impending arrival of her second child this past Saturday at an indoor/outdoor baby shower in Los Angeles.

Cole and her partner, aspiring rapper Niko Khale, are expecting their first child together. The new baby will join Cole’s s 10-year old son, Daniel Gibson Jr., from another relationship.

Cole, who starred in three reality TV show on the BET Network and is currently filming a baby special, wore a white gown and a crown of blue flowers for the special occasion.

Attendees included her controversial birth mom Frankie Lons, her adoptive mother Yvonne Cole, Love & Hip Hop Hollywood stars Zell Swag and Paris Phillips.

Family and vendors shared photos from the event on the Gram. The fact she tagged BET has us thinking the network was probably filming for her upcoming special as well.

Inside Jessica Jones AKA Krysten Ritter’s Baby Shower

Jessica Jones star Krysten Ritter celebrated the impending arrival of her first child at a music-themed baby shower friends threw for her last month.

The theme was fitting for the Breaking Bad alum whose partner is musician, frontman of the band The War on Drugs, Adam Granduciel  who also attended the coed shower.

Guests nibbled on guitar shaped cookies and enjoyed record-player-shaped cake among other goodies per social media shares is the festive occasion.

Inside Gretchen Rossi’s Elaborate Baby Shower

“It took me 41 years to have this baby,” Real Housewives of Orange County alum Gretchen Rossi told PEOPLE magazine when they asked if she would be overprotective of her first child ever. “I’m probably going to be crazy protective.”

Since it was a long time coming, that might explain the over-the-top and very elaborate Laguna Beach baby shower she and her partner Slade Smiley had back in May to celebrate the baby girl who is due to arrive this July 11 and who the couple have decided to name Skylar

[She had an elaborate Gender Reveal party too]

The event which took place at a lux venue overlooking the beach, was attended by several current and former Bravolebrities including Real Housewives of Dallas star D’Andra SimmonsVanderpump Rules star Scheana ShayPhaedra Parks (Real Housewives of Atlanta), Patti Stanger (The Millionaire Matchmaker) and Rossi’s former RHOC costars Lizzie Rovsek and Peggy Tanous.

Guests enjoyed a whiskey bar from Distillery 291, cigars from Master Roller Cigars , with Kiss FM’s DJ Chunk on the 1’s and 2s and a Sub Zero Ice Cream booth provided custom frozen desserts — including Skylar’s Shower Cake (cake-batter ice cream with cookie dough and rainbow sprinkles), Rossi’s “Rocking” Road (chocolate ice cream with marshmallows and almond slices), Slade’s “Sleepy” Salted Caramel (salted-caramel ice cream with pretzels) and Family Fruity Fusion (raspberry and marshmallow ice cream with mixed berries).

Rossi and Smiley even had a romantic, smoke-filled slow dance to “I Get To Love You” by Ruelle.

Rossi wore a white empire-waist plunging neckline lace gown by Project Runway designer Michael Costello with flowing sleeves, paired with diamond teardrop earrings, flats and a necklace that spelled her daughter’s name.

From PEOPLE about the food:

There was plenty. Guests nibbled on meat, cheeses and fruit on an epic charcuterie spread by Samira Weddings and Events, and enjoyed other appetizers off a 16-foot-long grazing table of tasty bites by Lucky Board LA. A huge ice tower held shrimp, clams, oysters and other seafood.

There was a huge variety of desserts, too — the centerpiece of which was a six-tier wedding-style cake in shades of pale pink and white, with a gold-detailed crown on top.

Cupcakes were topped with intricate designs, like baby carriages and white flowing dresses. Sugar cookies came in a variety of shapes, such as baby onesies (hanging on hangers) and sleeping babies. Towers of chocolate strawberries and macarons from Regal Delights offered other edible treats.

Bravo TV‘s Real Housewives of Potomac housewife Ashley Darby celebrated her 31st birthday and the impending arrival of her first child at a traditional ladies only “Shower” theme baby shower, this past Saturday, June 8th..

The festive event was held at La Vie restaurant in the recently renovated Wharf DC. Guests who entered a floral archway included castmates Gizelle Bryant, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, Monique Samuels, Karen Huger and Robyn Dixon to her grandmom Joyce Bryant and mom Sheila Mattthews and friends.

“I am still coming down from the joy and excitement of Baby D’s shower of love this weekend,” Darby captioned an Instagram post of a video of the event. “Michael and I are blessed to be surrounded by you caring, loving, supportive people. Life is much more fulfilling with you in it.”

Vendors included Village and Coast Interior Design which brought the theme to life by draping 55 light blue, lime, white, lavender and periwinkle parasols in the center of the room, per a PEOPLE mag exclusive.

Celeb Lux Life: Inside Look At Private Jets

This blog covers the celeb lifestyle and red carpets, and Privatte jet travel, which believe it or not, is becoming more accessible to the general public.

Through Uber-like services and competitive rates, more people than ever before can experience the convenience, comfort, and luxury of taking off on a jet plane to destinations either near or far for business and pleasure.

While your experience chartering your “own” course with a private service will be nothing to sneeze at, the owners of these private jets are taking the term “luxurious’’ to a whole new stratosphere.

Let’s take a private look inside six of the most luxurious private jets

  1. Boeing 747-8 VIP jet

Is it rude to have a better plane than the President of the United States?

Despite the original $367 million price tag, the owner of a Boeing 747-8 VIP jet added another $200 million in amenities to create the equivalent of a mansion in the sky.

No worries, as the Gulfstream G650ER with its humble price tag of just $66.5 million is perfect for those small group jetaways of 8 passengers or less.

With a palatial dining room, big screen televisions throughout and a “master suite with magnificent views of the changing sky,” flying in the current Air Force One model may seem like a step down to a low-rent district in aviation.

There were similar feelings with the powers that be. With plans to retire the two Boeing 747-200s that are the current Presidential ride, the 747-8’s are next in line. However, taxpayers should not collectively clutch their chests and wallets. The Air Force saved significantly on costs by buying the jets from the bankrupt Russian airline Transaero.

2. Gulfstream G650E

lip_20170721_0948_v02r01

Perhaps being the owner of a $500 million private jet that when flown commercially can accommodate 467 passengers is a little over the top for your modest needs.

Flying at a maximum speed of Mach 0.90, this flagship of the Gulfstream fleet can take you from Los Angeles to Geneva in 10.5 hours.  That’s about three hours faster than a commercial flight!  But unlike a commercial flight, you can use a smartphone app to control your custom cabin.

3. Pilatus PC-24

Considered to be one of the world’s best private jets, the Pilatus PC-24 is the epitome of both versatility and comfort.

Often referred to as the “penthouse of the skies,” this little jewel’s price tag of $8.9 million is, in comparison to the other jets on our list, hardly a king or queen’s ransom. As the world’s first Super Versatile Jet, it is in a class of its own and is able to land on short dirt runways as easily as it does on the strips of airports such as O’Hare or Heathrow.

The flexibility also means that you have an additional 880 airports in which you can touch down, meaning that convenience and luxury are not mutually exclusive.

4. Airbus 380

From a Turkish bath to a concert hall with a grand piano, we once again up our game to the Airbus 380 that was once owned by Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal al-Saud. Just as an aside, when the Prince decided to sell his jet in 2013, it was reported that he used the proceeds to “expand his investments in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East.”

Now you may be wondering how one can fit a concert hall into a private plane? The A380 commercial model can accommodate up to 800 passengers. Due to the aircraft failing to gain sustainable traction within the commercial industry, production will cease in 2021. Fortunately for the A380, it is becoming a favorite for private owners.

Given its size – it is hailed as being the largest commercial airplane ever built and is an interior designer’s dream for any client with a princely purse.

5. Boeing 787 Dream Jet

The Boeing 787 Dream Jet is the pinnacle of luxury and exclusivity. At a cost of $70,000 an hour to rent, you can see why some use the word “exclusive” when talking about this private jet.

Part of its appeal, beyond its 20 hours of uninterrupted flying time, is its spacious dining rooms and sleeping quarters which are more reminiscent of a luxury cruise liner than an airplane. Now we know where the saying, “it’s the only way to fly” originated.

6. Bombardier Global 7500

Learjet, a Canadian company, was the very first aircraft manufacturer to build private jets. The first Learjet took-off in 1963, and while the competition has become fierce since those early days, the company now owned by Bombardier is still a brand to be reckoned with.

Giving testimony to this is the Bombardier Global 7500.

If we are talking about luxury, the master bedroom is so fancy it is worthy of its, “stateroom” moniker. The fact that there are quarters for the crew too means that your private jet is truly “private.”

Air Style

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder so choosing the six most luxurious jets in the world today is no easy task.  

These jets take into account the diverse tastes and requirements of the most discriminating of travelers to give you a glimpse into how the world’s rich and famous traverse the globe.

Inside Vanessa Bryant’s Baby Shower for Baby Girl #4

Vanessa Bryant celebrated her Mother’s Day weekend with a baby shower to welcome the addition of her latest princess to the Bryant family.

In family photos of the event posted by Bryant and her famous Los Angeles Lakers retired basketball player husband Kobe Bryant, pink white and gold balloons, butterfly ornaments and pink rose florals in white box vases can be seen in front of a green shrub wall.

“Happy Mother’s Day @vanessabryant,” the NBA legend captioned a photo of his family at the baby shower. “We love you and thank you for all that you do for our family. You are the foundation of all that we hold dear.”

Vanessa took time to pose with her mom at the event.

The 4-time mom-to-be wore a stunning pink bump-hugging, long sleeve off the shoulder dress which looked fab with her neutral baby pink nails, and soft blush makeup, her hair in loose cascading ringlets.

The couple are parents to three girls: 16-year old Natalia Diamante, 13-year old Gianna Maria-Onore and 2-year old Bianka Bella.

They announced they were expecting their fourth child on New Year’s Day, another girl.

The Normal Name Kim Kardashian May Give Baby #4, as seen at her CBD Baby Shower

In California, where marijuana is legal, Kim Kardashian West hosted a baby shower for the impending arrival of her 4th child via surrogacy with a CBD-themed party.

CBD, an extract from marijuana plants, is used for a lot of things including to soothe anxiety, ease pain, relax muscles and more but unlike real weed, it doesn’t give users the same psychoactive high.

Guests sat on the ground and had “sound baths” and made special flower arrangements that included marijuana plants, CBD bath salts and oils to take home.

They also had goodie baskets full of CBD products.

At one point during the event, Kim rose to share that she is freaking out about welcoming a fourth child and told guests to join her in trying to chill out.

There was also a hint to the baby’s name.

On last night’s episode of her and her sisters popular Keeping Up With the Kardashian reality TV show who told them that their dad, famed attorney Robert Kardashian would be reincarnated in the form of one of their children.

So…onlookers noticed the name Robert in Kim’s snap, and are speculating as to whether a kid with older siblings named North, Saint and Chicago would really have such a conventional name as Robert.

Well he could always go as Hatut, the other name she wrote which is Armenian for “He has Risen”, and keeps with the boys being given Biblical-related names. *shrug*
