Our favorite stars are dating and mating, and ESSENCE.com is keeping tabs with Cupid Alert

Oscar nominee and ESSENCE’s April 2009 cover girl Taraji P. Henson glowed throughout award season, as she basked in her nomination and a successful 2008. Along with her captivating  performance in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” as Brad Pitt’s on-screen mom, she also had Hollywood talking with her date for the Golden Globes after-party, LA Lakers player Lamar Odom.

He was the perfect date throughout the night and the two have continued to be spotted together. Taraji may not have taken a golden man home this year, but one in a gold uniform still may be in the works. We are keeping our eyes on this possible new duo.
