When you have time and you really want your freedom compromised there is one family every Black entertainer and professional flocks to–The Kardashians! It is no secret that Kris, Kortney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie are all hot commodities, but it is the youngest member of this beautiful brood that has brimming! Yep, Kylie Jenner is this week’s Celebrity Crush!

Kylie has been making some serious moves and had some even more major life changes in recent years. The little girl we grew up watching on Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) has blossomed to be one “bodacious babe” and business mogul. Yes, we did not stutter–Kylie is a business tycoon! Her makeup and beauty lines routinely break records with their sales, crashing websites, and making pre-orders and back orders the new normal. In fact, according to Forbes Magazine she is worth 800 million dollars and is fast tracked to become the youngest billionaire in history–male or female!

Just 20 when this story publishes (she’ll turn 21 in August) and an extremely young mother (she had baby daughter Stormi in February), Jenner runs one of the hottest makeup companies ever. Kylie Cosmetics launched two years ago with a $29 “lip kit” consisting of a matching set of lipstick and lip liner, and has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since, including an estimated $330 million in 2017. Even using a conservative multiple, and applying our standard 20% discount, Forbes values her company, which has since added other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer, at nearly $800 million. Jenner owns 100% of it.

All we can say is MUST BE NICE! Kris Jenner proves yet again to be the greatest manager on the planet after cultivating her baby’s career into all of this. The only thing just as nice is her BODY! Kylie has curves and we are here for them! Her shape has definitely earned her the attention of a few A-List rappers and shot out her super cute baby girl, Stormi. We would talk about her voluptuous lips but as of this week “them Kylie Jenner lips,” as Travis Scott so eloquently spat, are no more. Ms. Jenner got her lip fillers removed and she is even badder than she was before. Kylie is out her living her best life, and honestly we are A-OK watching her rise! Keep making those money moves love!

#CelebrityCrush-Dave East (@DaveEast)

It has been awhile since we did a male Celebrity Crush, and yes, we got your requests (LOL)! We decided to go the rapper route this time around and we are pleased with our decision to highlight the ultra sexy, Dave East! Dave is hard with his rhymes and tattoos and even easier on the eyes. As a true wordsmith he is quickly rising up the ranks of the rap world to become one of its elites!

Dave East first came on our radar on CBS’s now cancelled series, Elementary, in 2012, and then reacquainted ourselves with him on The Breaks in 2017. Dave has proven himself to be a talented actor time and again, so much so we were not aware of his rap skills until later. His mix tapes, Paranoia 2 and Karma 2 stay on repeat in our Apple Music.

Now, back to how sexy he is. The magnificent specimen of a man is inked from head to toe and we love every needle stroke that made him that way. Then there’s that very sexy body of his. He gives us the same feels as The Game, minus the inclination he might beat us. Dave just has the type of swag most guys hope for, but seldom acquire. Also, did we mention he is 6’5″? Yes tall, inked, handsome and DIVINE!

dave east

Clearly Mr. East has a lot going for himself and we are just enjoying watching him rise. Dave is just amazing on so many levels. The way he cares for his daughter, Kairi, is exemplary and beautiful! Lord knows we need more positive images of Black Fathers (pumps black fist in the air). Dave, we love you man, drop us a line!

Enter Second Wives Club, here we find Veronika Obeng, a beauty so captivating and well put together she might as well take your whole paycheck because you will want to spend it all on her.  She is a noted reality star who has had her ups and downs in the public eye. However, she is as resilient as ever with a deep inner strength not even she has tapped into. Super mom, model, and super sweet, Veronika Obeng is this week’s Celebrity Crush!

veronika obeng

We have to admit Veronika came on our radar rather late and courtesy of our spiritual mother and counselor, Iyanla Vanzant, on her hit show OWN’s Iyanla Fix My Life. There, she sought help to move past her recent divorce and the stuck feeling that consumed her thereafter. We watched as she bravely not only worked through her own insecurities and demons, but learned the familial pathology that brought her to that place. She alongside, former The Real Housewives of Potomac star, Charisse Jackson-Jordan, “did their homework” and seemed to be better for it.

Besides being open and brave to work through her issues, Veronika is just one extremely beautiful woman. The only things that matches her radiance is her poise. She could very well be a real life “Raquel Lancaster” (see VH-1’s Single Ladies). The thing that captivates us the most about her are her eyes. They are so alluring and outright tell you “Yes, you want me.”

Veronika may have her claim to fame from Second Wives Club, but is her life and the legacy she has through her four little ones that will immortalize her. We love you V, if you are ever in Atlanta drop us a line!

We have to admit we did not know much about Henry prior to Crazy Rich Asians and we feel absolutely foolish for it! How can someone this hot and talented not have been on our radar. We digress. However, this film is his big break into Hollywood and propels him to becoming a leading man–a rare feat for an Asian actor.

Henry Golding & Constance Wu as “Nick Young” and “Rachel Chu” in “Crazy Rich Asians”

We had the opportunity to see Crazy Rich Asians a couple of weeks ago and we have to tell you it definitely earned that 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes! This film had it all–family, drama, comedy, and border lined on fantasy with its exotic scenes. As aforementioned Henry portrayed Nick Young, who just so happens to be a multi-millionaire and heir to one of the richest Chinese families in Singapore.

His girlfriend, Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) is unaware. Her life changes when she goes to meet his family and friends during a wedding. She soon learns what it means to be an outsider in their culture, and Nick must choose between the woman he loves and his family.

Henry is nothing short of suave and debonair as Nick and really pulls off the “Prince Charming” archetype the film set him in. He and Constance have amazing chemistry and you’ll find yourself rooting for their love the entire time!

We have to see we love Henry! He has the face of an angel, with chiseled features to die for.  Then that body of his gives us WORK. Whoever claims Asian men are not sexy clearly has not seen this beautiful specimen. You all just be sure to catch him AND his beach body this Wednesday as Crazy Rich Asians hits theaters nationwide!
