10 Baddies Over 35 Slaying Your Faves

Vibe-Vixen-Halle-Berry-Over-35-1

Are we tired of the infamous #bowdown yet? Well, bow down, give a standing ovation, round of applause or a quick head nod to the baddest chicks in the game over 35. During the 2013 BET Awards we noticed a trend. This is no shade to the lovely ladies in their 20s and early 30s (we love y’all too!), but the 35+ crew continuously slays women 10 years their junior. Everybody can’t still look 25 when they’re 42, yet Nia Long manages to do it. To all the ladies in the place with style and grace, we pay homage. Thirty-five and older and still giving us something to look at. Effortlessly. —Bené Viera

We don’t know a hotter Republican. Political commentary aside, Stacey is so bad she’ll take your man and send him home to you when she’s done. Not that anyone forgot, but Stacey Dash in KING magazine, y’all. Yes, that cover! Honey will have you giving your man a free pass so you can watch. We kid, we kid…maybe.

Nia Long, 42

We’ve actually exchanged playful, but real words with girlfriends over who gets to have Nia Long as a girl crush. As much as we want Nia for ourselves, we don’t want to live in a world where she isn’t everyone’s girl crush. Yes, Nia’s that bad. Since Love Jones and Best Man, Nia’s been serving flawlessness. Fully pregnant, the shorthaired goddess regally graced the cover of Ebony. There aren’t enough words for Nia’s perfection. All truth, no hype.

Gabrielle Union, 40

Gabrielle Union, 40 Gabby’s flawless skin and toned body is taking no prisoners, and playing no games. Her glowing skin can be attributed to her skin care regimen, but the rest is genetics. We’re sure her beau Dwayne Wade, 31, has no complaints. Look at her! Would you?

Halle Berry, 47

“Girl why you never ready? For as long as you took you better look like Halle Berry.” Jay Z knows what’s up. Halle being fine is inarguable at this point. So let’s just talk about how good she looks pregnant, at 47. Three years shy of 50, pregnant and killing women two decades younger deserves a salute. Kim K. was slammed for her style during pregnancy. All she needed to do was have her people call Halle’s people. Halle’s been rocking maxi dresses and flip-flops during her second pregnancy, and looking red carpet fly doing it.

Sanaa Lathan, 41

She’s 41 still looking like Monica from Love and Basketball. Sanaa is the kind of natural beauty who doesn’t need a 32” Malaysian or globs of makeup. Whatever that “thing” is she just has it.

Whitney Houston's Close Friend Robyn Crawford Details Romantic Relationship In New Memoir

Whitney Houston's personal life has been explored ten times over since her untimely passing in 2012 but one of her closest friends wants to share with the world the Whitney she knew and ultimately fell in love with.

In excerpts to People Wednesday (Nov. 6), Robyn Crawford presents a strong bond between the two in her new memoir, A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston. The singer and Crawford met in their youth while working at a summer camp in East Orange, New Jersey. From there, their friendship blossomed into something more romantic. With homophobia running rampant in the 80s, Crawford says they never looked at labels but enjoyed the experiences they shared together.

“We never talked about labels, like lesbian or gay,” writes Crawford. “We just lived our lives and I hoped it could go on that way forever.”

As their journey continued, Whitney's star began to rise which put allegedly put their romance on ice. “She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore,” writes Crawford. "Because it would make our journey even more difficult. She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us....and back in the ’80s, that’s how it felt. I kept it safe. I found comfort in my silence.”

Whitney's relationship with Crawford was mentioned in the 2018 documentary Whitney. Created by the singer's estate, the film focused on the singer's legacy and didn't include first-hand accounts from Crawford. Family members were weary of their special friendship.

"I’ve never seen them do anything but I know that she was something that I didn’t want my sister to be involved with," Whitney's brother Gary stated in the documentary.

But Crawford is finally ready to tell her own story while "lifting" Houston's legacy.

“I wanted to lift her legacy, give her respect and share the story of who she was before the fame, and in that, to embrace our friendship,” she tells People. "I'd come to the point where I felt the need to stand up for our friendship. And I felt an urgency to stand up and share the woman behind the incredible talent."

A Song for You: My Life with Whitney Houston is expected to hit bookshelves this fall.
