While this month wasn’t the best for celebrity Black love and some marriages, some couples could stay together, cherish their unions, and celebrate special milestones like birthdays and Emmy nominations. Niecy Nash Betts and Lebron James brought their partners along to celebrate their career highlights, like an Emmy nomination for Nash-Betts and an Epsy award for Best Record-Breaking Performance for James. Our favorite Real Housewives of Atlanta couple, Todd Tucker and Kandi Burruss, celebrated Tucker’s 50th birthday with a gold studded #50ShadesOfTodd, with their closest family and friends.
Next up, we saw two of the greatest sports stars toast their wedding anniversaries, Stephen Curry and Russell Wilson honored their marriages to Ayesha Curry and Ciara. Lastly, we have a newer couple, Angela Simmons and Yo Gotti, unapologetically stepping out together
