There has been a considerable amount of chatter, over who the new judge would be on season twelve of “American Idol”. The first promo photo for new judge Mariah Carey was released yesterday. In a shimmery orange off the shoulder gown, and tan chandelier earrings she looks fantastic. The gown accentuates her slim waistline, showing that she’s bounced back since having “Dem Babies”.  The long sandy-brown tresses are a very flattering addition, to her look.  With Randy Jackson staying and serving as a judge as well, that makes two African American judges on panel. We wonder who the third judge will be. 

The Television Critics Association's NBC Universal 2012 Summer Press Tour in Los Angeles, was packed full of celebrities ready for the red carpet. The fabulous ladies Eva Marcille, Tempest Bledsoe, NeNe Leakes, and Laila Ali all wore gorgeous summer shades. The guys Terry Crews, and Anthony Anderson wore dapper looks. Aisha Tyler went to check out the screening of The Babymakers. Letoya Luckett grabbed some dinner with Wendy Williams, at Mr. Chow.
