Chocolate News: Essence Atkins Finds Her ‘Match’ Online

September 30, 2009

Actress Essence Atkins (Half & Half, Delivers Us From Eva) tied the knot in Pasadena, California on September 26th.

She met her new husband, Jaime Mendez on the site Match.com. The two “connected” on Valentine’s Day of 2008 and have been inseparable ever since. Their simple but elegant ceremony was held at the Ambassador Mansion & Gardens in Pasadena. They opted not to have attendants, creating a special day just for them.

The bride wore a gown by Steven Yearick and shoes by Jimmy Choo. She carried a bouquet of ivory, green, and violet roses. Essence and Jaime opted for Puerto Rican and Soul Food dishes and red velvet cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding cake.

Essence surprised her new hubby with a Salsa band and a DJ spun tunes for the celebration.

Guests included the actress’ buddies Sanaa Lathan and Gabrielle Union and NBA star Dwayne Wade. Congratulations Essence!

Chocolate Gossip: A Destiny’s Child Reunion in the Works?

September 29, 2009

Will there be a Destiny’s Child reunion? Was the question posed to former group member Kelly Rowland who was sitting at the Dsquared show during Fashion Week Milan. “I heard that rumor too,” she was heard saying.

While the notion of a Destiny’s Child reunion might sound good on paper, the fact of the matter is, it may not work. The scene-stealing Beyoncé has been a constant figure since her break away from the group in 2003.While it is widely known that Kelly is a better vocalist, she hasn’t had a chance to prove it.

If Kelly and the soft-spoken Michelle Williams can get more vocal time, a reunion might not be a bad idea. It’s just too bad  they’ll have to get past papa Matthew Knowles to do it.We know how this story ends but we wish all the girls the best.
