The Los Angeles premiere of Will Smith’s latest movie, Seven Pounds, was held last night and just about all of Black Hollywood was in attendance. Brown Sista favorites Gabrielle Union and Sanaa Lathan were spotted on the red carpet. As were Laila Ali, Nia Long, Chaka Khan and an actress we rarely see make public appearances; Robinne Lee. I think I last wrote about Robinne here about 2 years ago and she was either pregnant or just had a baby. Well the sista is pregnant again and from the looks of things- is about to pop any minute now. For those who just can’t place Robinne’s face, she starred in such great movies as Deliver Us Eva and one of my alltime favorites, Hav Plenty. Robinne also has a brief cameo in Seven Pounds and has appeared in several episodes of this season’s Tyler Perry hit- House of Payne.
