‘Tis the Season for Babies, Bounce Back, and Mary Mary

The entertainment world certainly stays busy as the holiday season approaches Ahh, the cold and cuddly season is upon us, and as tempting as your favorite flip flops, T-shirt, and cut-off jeans sound in a summer breeze, you can forget about it in 40-degree weather. Mother Nature has spoken, and it’s time for baked goodies, hot cocoa, fleece, and family.


Speaking of family, Savannah James—mother extraordinaire and wife to one of the NBA’s most prized possessions, LeBron James—recently gave birth on Oct. 22 to an adorable Zhuri Nova James. Can anyone say spoil-t? It will be interesting to see how the men of the family adjust to princess talk, the “little sis is always right” rule, and sparkly onesies. One thing is for sure: LeBron confirmed his excitement in a recent post on social media, “…Zhuri hurry up and get here so your daddy and 2 brothers can annoy you! Lol.” The James men have fully prepared to love and annoy the socks off of little Zhuri. May the remote remain in her corner.


In more bouncing baby news, R&B diva Ciara has done it again. Not only does she top the charts with spicy tracks like “Body Party,” but she finds time to serve us all the “bounce back” blessing. What is “bounce back,” you ask? In just four months after announcing the arrival of her little man, Future Zahir Wilburn—who weighed a hefty 9 pounds, 10 ounces—CiCi has her pre-baby body back and is now better than ever. It turns out that Ciara gained a generous 60 pounds while pregnant with Future, more than likely indulging in all of our favorites (to which we hold no judgment). However, unlike most women, in a mere four months CiCi has lost every bit of that 60 pounds through hard work, a double dose of determination, and a multitude of lunges and squats—hence the “bounce back” blessing. Go CiCi! We can do nothing but wish you well on this new and exciting journey of motherhood, and we extend a major congratulations to you on achieving your goal to get your body back. She is so unapologetic.

It’s testimony time! In a recent interview backstage after a performance at BB Kings, the gospel duo Tina and her sister Erica Campbell shared their excitement surrounding the taping of season four of Mary Mary, which is set to air sometime during the first quarter of next year. Their genuine smiles and inspirational energy leads us to believe that they indeed have some testimonies to share, and we can hardly wait! It turns out Tina and Teddy Campbell have survived the worst of the storm concerning allegations of multiple affairs. The two lovebirds are excited to remain transparent in hopes of inspiring us to hold fast to love. Tina admits that they have learned to love each other daily in very special ways. With the rollercoaster ride they took us on during the last season of Mary Mary, it’s safe to say we look forward to seeing our girls happy and overtaken by love, peace, and joy. We will be tuning in and talking back to our TV screens come the beginning of the year, Marys!
