    Michael Strahan Gets Personal with EBONY

    Exclusive Interview with the Former NFL Player, Now Daytime Talk Show Host


    CHICAGO (July 8, 2014) — Daytime television host Michael Strahan is the featured cover star on the August issue of EBONY magazine, giving readers the scoop on how he earned the title, “Mr. Entertainment.”

    Inside the issue, Strahan discusses his accomplishments as a football player and how he managed to transition from being at the top of the NFL to the co-host for both Live with Kelly and Michael and Good Morning America. He also sheds light on his bitter divorce from his ex-wife, Jean Muggli and how he opened his heart to love again with fiancée Nicole Murphy.

    “When you get divorced, people get upset, angry and say crazy things,” said Strahan regarding the ugly rumors that circulated during the end of his marriage to Muggli. “You have to take it. But it wasn’t easy. It was hard as hell.”

    Strahan credits the experience for giving him both strength and insight, which led to his current relationship with Murphy who was once married to actor Eddie Murphy.

    “For us it’s key that we maintain normalcy,” said Strahan. “We have a great life. People can buy into their own celebrity, and that’s a dangerous thing.”

    With a Super Bowl title under his belt, the number one entertainment talk show in the country and a NFL Hall of Fame induction coming this summer, Strahan is undoubtedly accomplished. When asked about the formula to his success, Strahan credits his father and his educational background as vital components.

    “My father is an amazing man,” added Strahan. “His whole philosophy was never ‘if’; it was always ‘when.’” He continued saying, “…Just the belief that somebody has in you can make a difference. Then you start saying, ‘when,’ not ‘if,’”

    Strahan also adds, “I went to Texas Southern, an HBCU. People can say what they want about those schools, but TSU taught me how to go from being a boy to a man.”

    Overall, however, Strahan admits he’s a simple guy.

    “I’m shy by nature,” he admits. “At heart, I just want to chill and have fun. I’ve had hard times, but I got through them.”

    In addition to Strahan’s feature, the August issue of EBONY is the Black Wealth issue and readers will find articles on how to create a financial plan for life’s unavoidable ups and downs; business advice from successful millionaires and how your credit could be affecting your dating life. Plus, see our tribute to the late Dr. Maya Angelou and Ruby Dee.

    Readers can find the August issue on newsstands beginning July 8.

    Magic and Cookie Johnson on the Cover of EBONY

    Exclusive Interview as the Johnsons Talk Love, Business and Donald Sterling


    CHICAGO (June 10, 2014) — Power couple Magic and Cookie Johnson are on the cover of EBONY magazine as they exclusively discuss weathering the storm around the recent controversy concerning Donald Sterling, their business endeavors, how they keep their love going as empty nesters and living life with HIV.

    Following the heels of the media frenzy brought on by Sterling’s remarks, Magic discusses when he first caught wind of the racist remarks made by the owner of the NBA’s Los Angeles Clippers.

    “I’m glad that I was able to stand up for our people and be the voice,” said Magic regarding the situation.

    The Johnsons, who have been married for 22 years and dated 14 years prior, are also a couple with proven longevity. The two get intimate with EBONY on how they have made their love last.

    “We had our ups and downs,” admitted Cookie. “We had a period where we were about to separate. There was a point where I was home all the time; he was working,” she continued. “Sometimes you start growing apart a little because he’s seeing new adventurous stuff. He’s out in the world. He’s growing. [But] I’m stagnant.”

    However, Magic reveals that it was he who had to learn to make changes.

    “If I had kept going [that way] and the kids left, we would probably be divorced,” says Magic. “Now we’re so connected to each other, but it took that situation to bring us back.” He also added, “I’ve always told Cookie, ‘The only thing I wanted was to grow old with you.’ [Now] we just look at each other and say how blessed we are.”

    Meanwhile, Cookie has become a businesswoman herself with her own premium denim line, CJ, and Magic admits it made him look at her in a new light.

    “It’s so sexy,” he says with a wink. “It is beautiful to see her become this brand; this CEO.”

    “They’re really a power couple,” added Holly Robinson Peete, a longtime friend of both Magic and Cookie. “And yet you still see how in love they are. With grace, forgiveness and love, they represent everything that is real and authentic about Black love.”

    After being diagnosed with HIV in 1991, Magic became an advocate of HIV/AIDS prevention and research, and gives EBONY a heartfelt discussion on coping with and living a full life with the disease.

    “In my quiet moments is when I cry inside to say, ‘Thank you, God, that I’m here to see my kids, play with my grandkids,” Magic said tearfully.

    The article continues to discuss the Johnson’s sense of fashion, their children, and being empty-nesters.

    The July issue also celebrates “Sexy at Any Age” with the “50 Finest List,” – the sexiest African-Americans ranging from age 20 to 89. Celebrities such as Lupita Nyong’o, Kelly Rowland, Tika Sumpter, Pharrell, LL Cool J, Omari Hardwick, Dwayne Wade, Harry Belafonte Ruby Dee, Tristan Wilds and Trey Songz are a few of those featured on the list. Tasha Smith, Romany Malco, Hill Harper and Cynthia Bailey also dish on the subject of being comfortably sexy both on and off camera.

    For more, readers can find the July issue of EBONY on newsstands June 10.

    Mary Wilson lives in a Las Vegas home built for a queen — or in her case, a Supreme! The founding member of the biggest girl group of the ’60s exclusively opens up her Las Vegas home to Closer Weekly in the new issue on stands now.

    Mary’s favorite part of her home? Her gigantic walk-in closet designed so she can escape to “a glamorous room with all my gowns and hairpieces.” The wide-open loft is complete with a dressing room and walk-in closets to accommodate her gowns, shoes and wigs. “I hang out in my closet,” Mary tells Closer in her exclusive interview. “It’s more than 17 feet long!”

    Inside, Mary has a few gowns displayed, including dresses from her days as a Supreme. “I don’t even wear half of my gowns. But they’re gorgeous to look at! I have 50 in a [traveling] exhibit [Come See About Me: The Mary Wilson Supremes Collection] and lots more!”

    Years after her success, Mary still has famous fans fawning over her and the success of the Supremes. At the LA premiere of the film Dreamgirls, Beyoncé told Mary, “If it wasn’t for you and The Supremes, Destiny’s Child wouldn’t have had the success that we’ve had.” And Mary tells Closer that she recently met up with Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora this year. “He was extremely charming,” she tells the mag. “And said he was going to write a song for me!”

    To see all the stunning photos of Mary Wilson’s home and to read more about her life as a Supreme and the effect the group’s success had on Hollywood, pick up the new issue of Closer Weekly on stands now

    Nicki Minaj isn’t engaged yet, but she's certainly talking about wedding plans as if she has a ring on her finger! In the new issue of In Touch, the rapper — who is dating longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels — shares some very detailed wedding planning, including the amount of dresses she plans to wear and even the ideal location.

    “I’d want it to be on a beach somewhere, like Turks and Caicos,” the rapper exclusively shares with In Touch. Though she doesn’t have a ring on her finger just yet, her plans don’t stop there. “I’m gonna have 10 [dresses],” Nicki explains, but soon changes her mind, adding “OK, maybe more like three!”

    And it’s no surprise that the singer has her three wardrobe changes planned out for her big day already. “A big princess dress, something short I can dance in at the party and then an Alexander McQueen gown that’s sexy and figure-hugging.”

    For the full interview with Nicki Minaj and to find out more about her wedding plans, pick up the new issue of In Touch Weekly on stands now.

    CHICAGO, IL. (April 17, 2014) — La La Anthony has it all, and in the latest issue of JET, the actress, entrepreneur, wife and mother gives the inside scoop on balancing her full-court lifestyle. She currently boasts a top-selling book– The Love Playbook: Rules for Love, Sex and Happiness, the clothing line 5th & Mercer, and her reality television show, La La’s Full Court Life.

    La La Anthony



    1. Never Stop Doing You – “The difference with me is that when I first got to know my husband I was already hosting MTV’s Total Request Live, so I came with a full career,” she says.

    2. Accept That Having It All Will Require Blood, Sweat and Stilettos – When asked about balancing a family, career and friendships, Anthony responded saying, “It’s tough. I always say that people who think it isn’t aren’t being honest.”

    3. Sex May Sell, But Love Keeps You Off the Market – “If you don’t try to spice it up and keep it sexy, anyone can get bored but the key is really taking time with each other,” advises Anthony.

    With Mother’s Day approaching, some of Hollywood’s hottest moms — Brandy Norwood, Nicole Ari Parker and Kyla Pratt for example — share with JET their most embarrassing, yet funny, mommy moments. Tinseltown’s sexiest actors, such as Hosea Chanchez, Lance Gross and Laz Alonso, also reveal their most cherished times with their mothers. For those looking for something special for their loved one this Mother’s Day, JET magazine’s just-for-mom gift guide has the perfect find.

    Also inside the annual Women’s Issue, readers can learn more about Lean In, the organization that encourages women to pursue their professional goals, and learn about the controversy surrounding its Ban Bossy campaign from sole African-American board of directors member, Kim Keating. On a lighter note, actress and comedienne Whoopi Goldberg gets candid with JET about her new Lifetime TV movie, A Day Late and a Dollar Short, while actress LaTanya Richardson Jackson dishes on her Broadway role in the current revival of A Raisin in the Sun and what it is like to work with Denzel Washington as she balances being the wife of actor Samuel L.

    EBONY: It’s more than a magazine, it’s a movement.

    Tia and Tamera Strikes a Pose on the Cover of EBONY Magazine

    The twins dish on family, business and growing up in the public eye


    America’s favorite “twins next door,” Tia Mowry-Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley, graces the cover of the EBONY May issue, while also opening up about their business, fame, personal lives, and growing up in front of the camera.

    The former child stars are now entrepreneurs who launched NEED Brands, a company that provides wholesome, and all-natural products for new and expectant mothers. The two started the company to fill voids they found after becoming moms, and the twins told EBONY that the company will soon release more products for new and expectant mothers, including skin care offerings, supplements, snacks and apparel.

    However, their business ventures are not keeping them off the television screen. Tamera discussed how she will return to television this fall to co-host the hit talk show The Real, alongside Tamar Braxton, Loni Love, Adrienne Bailon and Jeannie Mai, which FOX picked up for two-year run. Tamera said she plans to use the platform to discuss being a mother, wife and other relevant issues. Tia is also starring in and producing Instant Mom, a sitcom on Nick at Nite, which averages 1.2 million viewers per episode for its network. Tia is also working behind the scenes producing and shopping shows she created but will not star in.

    While it may appear that the two have been on a continuous path of success, Tia opened up about the moments of hardships they had as well.

    “After Sister, Sister ended, nobody was calling,” says Tia. “My sister and I were sick and tired of being sick and tired of sitting back and waiting for those phone calls.” Deciding at that point they were going to take control of their future, Tia added, “We had the mentality, ‘We’re not going to depend on anybody anymore, we’re not going to let someone else’s value of us diminish how we value ourselves, and we’re going to put action in place.’ We put our minds together and executed [our plans].”

    While taking control has yielded fruits from their labor, the road was not rainbows and glitter. Tamera also opened up to EBONY about the emotional moment she had on an episode of Oprah: Where Are They Now? regarding her interracial marriage with FOX news correspondent, Adam Housley.

    “Honestly, growing up, I [just] knew I was going to marry a Black man,” said Tamera. “But, as I grew up, I learned to just be open,” she added. “I just wanted to be with someone who was confident around me and who I felt comfortable being myself with.”

    The article can be read in its entirety in the April issue of EBONY on newsstand now.

    FIRST PHOTO AND DETAILS INSIDE REAL HOUSEWIFE KANDI BURRUSS’ EXTRAVAGANT WEDDING!


     REAL HOUSEWIFE KANDI BURRUSS’ EXTRAVAGANT WEDDING!
    CREDIT IN TOUCH WEEKLY


    Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker finally made it official on April 4 — and they’re sharing their day only with In Touch!

    The Real Housewives of Atlanta star tells In Touch, “The whole thing was like a fairy tale!”

    It was indeed, and In Touch has the exclusive photos to prove it! Their nuptials took place at Atlanta’s Le Fais Do-Do event facility in front of 300 guests. Kandi — who really knows how to make an entrance — emerged from behind a wall of ostrich-feather fans in a custom $20,000 Reco Chapple gown with a 12-foot train.

    “I didn’t know if I was going to be able to pull this all together,” Kandi admits to In Touch, revealing that she organized the entire ceremony in just a month. “I couldn’t wait around hoping things would get better. I just had to do it and hope for the best.”

    Luckily she wasn’t disappointed. Kandi’s mother, Joyce, has called Todd “an opportunist” in the past and accused him of cheating after he and Kandi got engaged in January 2013. But at the ceremony and reception, the mother of the bride was on her best behavior. Joyce confesses to In Touch, “Time will tell if Todd gets my blessing, but if Kandi’s happy, then I need to be happy for her.”

    Kandi’s bridesmaids included matron of honor Tamera Wynn, maid of honor Carmon Cambrice, rapper T.I.’s wife Tameka ‘Tiny’ Harris, Fantasia Barrino, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s Rasheeda Frost, and RHOA’s Phaedra Parks and Joyce Dallas. The entire wedding party wore white.

    For all the photos and details inside Kandi’s extravagant wedding, pick up the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now.

    Queen Latifah Dishes To JET on Career, Love, Children and Same-Sex Marriage


    With a hit daytime talk show under her belt and more projects in her back pocket, Queen Latifah is all smiles as she graces the latest cover of JET magazine.

    This issue of the publication focuses on faith and spirituality, and the former rap star turned media mogul opens up about the time her faith was truly tested while also providing updates on her family and exciting new business ventures.

    On when her faith was most challenged

    “The biggest thing to ever test my personal faith was the loss of my brother in a motorcycle accident… I believed it ruined my life. I probably had a five-year interruption in any type of personal growth. There were some things I didn’t learn in my twenties because I was disconnected emotionally. I could only get so close or feel so much.”

    How she was able to move forward

    “I fell in love. It was like a circuit breaker had switched off.”

    On having children

    “I’ve wanted to adopt since I was 18 because I grew up with friends who could’ve used good parents. Maybe it’s my romanticism of after-school specials where someone would adopt a child and life would be great afterward. I have a lot of love to give.”

    On her participation in the same-sex marriage ceremony at the Grammy Awards

    “It was a beautiful moment and not a political decision… I knew it would make a statement and I’m fine with the statement it made.”

    Readers can read the article in its entirety and more in the April 21 issue of JET magazine, on newsstands now.

    CREDIT IN TOUCH WEEKLY


    In the new issue of In Touch on newsstands now, Kenya Moore sounds off on her Real Housewives of Atlanta costars – speaking especially open on how she feels about fellow cast member, NeNe Leakes.

    Kenya was shocked when her former pal NeNe proclaimed on camera that she was “on a different level” than her RHOA costars. But the former Miss USA isn’t taking the diss to heart.

    According to Kenya, NeNe is nothing more than a “former stripper” and when asked if she will watch NeNe compete on this season of Dancing With the Stars, Kenya told In Touch, “I’ll turn it on if I want to go to sleep.”

    To find out what Kenya has to say about her other RHOA costars, pick up the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now.

    **EXCLUSIVE**

    KIM FIELDS SHARES FIRST PHOTOS OF MIRACLE BABY, QUINCY


    Only in the new issue of Closer Weekly, Facts of Life star Kim Fields shares the exclusive first photos of her miracle 4-month-old baby boy, Quincy.

     Kim Fields shares the exclusive first photos of her miracle 4-month-old baby boy, Quincy.


    “I know it sounds like a cliché, but it’s a blessing,” Kim tells Closer at an exclusive photo shoot. Kim's pregnancy came as a surprise, after she had suffered two miscarriages before finding out she was expecting again. “There was so much gratitude that he was here and healthy.”

    So when the actress best known as Tootie started feeling sick, and believing she was perimenopausal, her husband, Broadway actor Christopher Morgan, insisted that she go see the doctor. “He thought I might be dehydrated, then I find out I’m two months pregnant! I was stunned out of my mind,” Kim says. “We were both overjoyed,” adds Chris.

    Quincy was born on Dec. 3 after a C-section, and Kim shares fond memories of her delivery. She had put together a special playlist on her iPad, but after leaving it in the hospital room, she and her husband sang a cappella. “Turns out the anesthesiologist was totally into singing, so we were doing three-part harmonies and holding hands!” she tells Closer with a laugh. “We were singing ‘Family’ from Dreamgirls when Quincy came out.” The baby, who is named after famed music producer Quincy Jones, resembles his big brother, Sebastian. “They look a lot alike. Sebastian loves bragging about his little brother. He tells his teachers at school everything he does. He is Quincy’s publicist at this point,” Kim jokes to Closer.

    And although Kim thinks she and Chris “are done” adding on to their family, she admits, “never say never. Being a mom is really the greatest role in my life.”

    Real Housewives of Atlanta Star, Kandi Burruss, Gets Candid with JET

    - The Reality Star Dishes on Love, Career, and “Mama Joyce” -


    Reality star, singer, songwriter, producer and entrepreneur, Kandi Burruss, appears radiant on the cover of JET magazine as she opens up about her career and her very public relationship with her mother, “Mama Joyce,” and fiancé, Todd Tucker.

    “When I speak about anything on camera I want to accomplish it before we finish taping,” Burruss tells JET regarding her drive and ambition. “I am a ‘do what I say’ person. I want people to know I’m not a [phony]. I hate when people on reality shows mention how they want to do this and that, but you never hear of it again,” she added.

    With a successful adult toy line, Bedroom Kandi, her Atlanta-based studio, The Kandi Factory, and her musical, A Mother’s Love, set for DVD release in April, Burruss certainly has proven that she has a keen sense for business. She admits her relationship with Tucker has helped her sharpen her skills.

    “I love that Todd is affectionate and relationship-oriented,” said Burruss. “But he’s also a leader and a planner, and because of his production background he makes me a better businesswoman.”

    Although many know that Burruss’ mother, Joyce Jones, is firmly against the union of her daughter with Tucker, she concedes exclusively to JET that "If they are married and it lasts, I will be the first to apologize."

    “When my mother was younger it was all about getting a man to be a provider,” said Burruss addressing her mother’s qualms. “She leans toward a man who is financially more well-off than the dude who is just a good guy.” She added, “I’ve dated guys who are more successful than me, and my mom is like, no matter what he does wrong, you have to work it out.”

    Readers can read the articles in its entirety and more in the March 31st issue of JET magazine, on newsstands now.

    EBONY Talks to Angela Bassett About Insecurity and Success and Reveals Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Portfolio of Celebrity Icons for Annual Hollywood Issue

    - Magazine Explores the State of Black Feminism; Launches White House Partnership and Counts Down Spring’s Hottest Fashion Trends -


    CHICAGO (February 6, 2013) — EBONY magazine salute’s Black Hollywood with actress Angela Bassett gracing the cover, reveals never-before-seen images of our biggest celebrities and crowns the next generation of stars.

    EBONY magazine



    Bassett is currently mesmerizing her fans in her captivating role as voodoo priestess, Marie Laveau, on the FX series American Horror Story: Coven, while also receiving acclaim for her role in Black Nativity during the holiday season.

    Many know Bassett for being strong, poised and resilient; however, the talented actress opened up to EBONY magazine and revealed that she also has moments of doubt and insecurity. However, she gives readers the scoop on how to exude the same sense of confidence that she possesses while also keeping her feet firmly on the ground.

    As the actress reflected on moments when it was hard to secure a role, she offers the following advice on how to keep going: “You’ve got to keep a good attitude. You can’t think, ‘This is it [during the lean times], because that’s when it’s going to break open for you. You’ve got to be ready; you’ve got to be prepared.”

    “Whatever you’re dealing with seems like a mountain to you, but we truly aren’t in it alone. Sometimes we need others to talk us off the cliff or to just talk to us or to be there with us [in order] to support us or love us.”

    Despite being a part of Hollywood’s elite and being armed with an Ivy League degree from Yale University, Bassett discusses why pursuing excellence and staying grounded is so important to her.

    “I understand where I come from; the strength and the people I come from. I know what has been endured and sacrificed.”

    This issue also features a salute to young Hollywood’s hottest new game-changers like Lupita Nyong’o, Quvenzhane Wallis, Zendaya Coleman and Michael B. Jordan just to name a few.
