NYC 'Friends' Book Signing

The folks at went to see Angela and Courtney at their book signing in NYC today. They give a great synopsis of the evening:

Monday evening at the Yale Club, former Eli drama school classmates (and, more to the point, current husband and wife) Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance were feted with a party celebrating the publication of their joint memoir, Friends: A Love Story.

For a reading, the two actors offered a whirlwind tour of their courtship (after years of knowing each other through school and work) in the style of Love Letters, starting with their first serious date, at a Los Angeles driving range (Bassett, coyly: "I ain't never hit no golf ball before"; Vance, on getting up close to show her the proper swing: "I wasn't trying to do nothing fresh"). Before the performance, Vance joked that they had originally conceived of the project, written in collaboration with Hilary Beard, as "a little celebrity book" of maybe 100 pages, but that plan fell by the wayside.

"The queen doesn't like to speak," he said, referring affectionately to his wife, "but she likes to talk." 400 pages of transcripts later...anyway, if you can sneak out for a long lunch tomorrow, they'll be at the Columbus Circle Borders, where they might put on some of the same routine. (They really should flesh it out to about 90 minutes and take it on the road; it's that good.)

I couldnt agree more. They should take it to Seattle first. The people in Seattle love books, you can have as much coffee as you want, and there are two girls in the Emerald City named Tacia and Simonique who dont call themselves BassettHounds for nothing. :D

Angela's words to Jennifer

We all know Ms. Jennifer Hudson walked away with the supporting actress Oscar last sunday along with, Last King of Scotland star Forest Whitaker (Angela's director on Waiting to Exhale). Heres Angie's words of wisdom to J.Hud.

At Elaine’s, Angela Bassett extended a welcome to divadom to Best Supporting Actress winner Jennifer Hudson. 'I can't imagine what she's going through,' Bassett said. 'It's going to take a few years for her to really realize all of it.' Any advice? 'Go to school! She's just a little girl. Always be willing to learn.'

Angela Bassett hosts 40+ Model Show

Co-host Angela Bassett added fuel to the crowd's fire. The actress, known for her roles in playing strong women, played pageant host for the women as they walked down the runway. As a new mother to one-year-old twins born to a surrogate the 48-year-old actress showed no signs of fatigue or stress, but instead looked resplendent in a white sheath dress. "It's the confidence," Bassett said. "In your 40s it's not something you have to work so hard at."

Angie B hosted More magazine's 7th annual 40+ model fashion show in New York City yesterday. She is pictured here with designer Carmen Marc Valvo, the Editor-in-Chief of More, and her husband, Courtney.

*pockets anyone?*

To Da Right, To Da Right

Question: Does Tacia notice some of the slightest patterns when it comes to Angela?
Answer: Sho' NUFF!

I was just scrolling through our blog and couldn't help but notice that lately...Angela's bang-swoop has been preferrably brushed across the right side of her face (excluding her oprah appearance). No matter if it's signing books for adoring fans, posing for the cameras on the red carpet and other glammed up events, or flashing those pearly whites for a magazine photoshoot, the hair is always... to da RIGHT!

Here are some past photos from the Blog:

She's a busy-body...and we Love it!

Not even the Book Tour can keep our Angela from staying out-and-about! Courtesy of and, check out Angela at the Los Angeles Opening of "Wicked", yesterday (February 21st).
