TGIF, ladies! You've made it to the end of the week and now it's time kick back and relax. But first, we have some tasty coffee talk to set your Friday off right! NBA baller Chris Paul is giving back to his hometown of Winston-Salem by hosting free events all weekend long. It's always good to see athletes do more than drop lots of cash on silly items. We commend you, Chris! New York Fashion Week had its first plus-size runway show and actress Gabourey Sidibe did it for the big girls by working that runway. The weight keeps falling off of Jennifer Hudson who says she's lost an additional 20 pounds. Plus, Anita Baker will be honored at this year's Soul Train Awards. Sweet Love! Here's what you had to say: Selena commented via Facebook: "It's about time Anita Baker got some recognition." Rahsaan wrote via Facebook: "Congrats to Ron Isley...Gabby I see you sister. Good job."
