Tracee Puts Her Spin on Her Mom’s 1981 Work that Body Video
Tracee Ellis Ross has recreated the video for Work that Body, the 1981 single recorded by her mother Diana Ross.
Those of you old enough will remember the early 80’s as the absolute height of the aerobics fitness craze. It gave actress Jane Fonda a much needed career boost, and spawned such iconic tunes as Olivia Newton John’s Physical.
Diana’s Work that Body video, recorded when she was 36 and already the mother of three, added to the craze, as well as spawning another hit for Ross to add to her ever-expanding collection.
Tracee Ellis Ross is set to make her return to television this fall. According to Black Talent News, the actress will be starring in a half hour sitcom on BET titled “Reed Between The Lines.” Tracee will play Dr. Carla Reed, a successful psychiatrist, wife and mother- who struggles to balance both her personal and professional life.
Tracee will also act as executive producer alongside Author Harris and Kellie Griffin, both former head writers for Tyler Perry’s Hose of Payne.
Tracee was last seen on the hit UPN/CW sitcom “Girlfreinds,” and can presently be seen in the off Broadway production of “Love, Loss and What I Wore.”
Today’s random celebrity sightings post consists of some of my favorite brown sistas. From Janet Jackson to Melyssa Ford, we have Black Women from all walks of Hollywood life covered. First up however is Keyshia Cole who held her album release party last night. Keyshia is sporting a new shorter do that I really like and it reminds me quite a bit of Rihanna’s new shorter style. Hopefully both these ladies will usher in a less in more look for celebrity sistas when it come to their hair.
