After returning from a brief hiatus and making an on-screen appearance in the 2012 romantic comedy-drama flick Silver Linings Playbook, actor/ comedian Chris Tucker returns to the spotlight as host of this year's BET Awards. The Def Comedy Jam pioneer said he's honored to take on the role and is "looking forward to being part of a really great show." The awards ceremony will be a part of the new "BET Experience at L.A. Live," a three-day event that kicks off with a special concert from Beyonce as part of her Mrs. Carter Tour June 28. Other scheduled performers for the weekend include Kendrick Lamar, Miguel, the Jacksons and R. Kelly. The BET Awards is set to emanate from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles June 30 at 8:30 p.m.
Tia and Cory Hardrict celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary by renewing their vows last week. Although the couple’s anniversary is not until April 20th, they decided to renew their vows early so their 1-year-old son, Cree, could be a part. “We decided to renew our vows as a way to strengthen the sacred promise we made to each other when we got married 5 years ago,” wrote Tia on her blog. “Cree was actually my motivation and inspiration to renew our vows this year. Cory and I have this new miracle in our lives now and I wanted to celebrate our love, and what our love together created – our precious son! I was so excited to have my little man be a part of this special moment.” Tia and Cory kept their renewals simple, having 20 guests and an intimate ceremony. Cree was dressed in white and watched as mom and dad once again made promises to love and cherish one another. Tia and Cory welcomed Cree into the world on June 28, 2011. He is their first child together. Last Saturday, Cory and I renewed our vows on a beachfront in Malibu, California. We’ve been together for 13 years and married for 5 (our 5th anniversary is coming up on the 20th!). We decided to renew our vows as a way to strengthen the sacred promise we made to each other when we got married 5 years ago. I think it’s so important to do that! Whether it’s having a special ceremony like we had, or just small things like surprise flowers after work or a handwritten love note, it’s these things that keep a relationship fresh and bond strong. Cree was actually my motivation and inspiration to renew our vows this year. I was so excited to have my little man be a part of this special moment. We kept it small and intimate, with only about 20 guests – of course, Tamera, Adam and Aden were attendance and I was so happy that my sissy and her family were there to celebrate with me.

Wade Walker is eager to propose to his girlfriend, Grace Peeples. But after a year of living together, the beautiful, successful Grace is still cagey about introducing average guy Wade to her ambitious, upper crust family. So when Grace leaves for an annual reunion at her parents’ swanky Sag Harbor compound, Wade decides to crash the gathering, charm his soon-to-be in-laws and slip a ring on Grace’s finger. However Wade's plans go hilariously awry when he meets the high-powered, seemingly picture-perfect family who’ll do whatever it takes to keep up appearances. Wade soon finds himself caught in a web of white lies and comic dysfunction, and realizes that his only hope of ever marrying Grace means a take-no-prisoners face-off with Judge Peeples, Grace’s disapproving dad who won’t accept anything less than the very best for his favorite daughter. Kerry & Craig's co-stars include David Alan Grier, S. Epatha Merkerson, Melvin Van Peebles, Diahann Carroll, and Kali Hawk. Tyler Perry seems to have taken the (publicity) helm of the film as producer, and we'll be seeing. WENT TO A SCREENING OF THIS MOVIE VERY LIGHTHEARTED AND FUNNY. VERY CUTE TO SEE THESE ACTORS PLAY FUN ROLES.
