Oh, So NINE...!
The El-Amin/Scott household proudly announces the arrival of a newly minted 9-year-old. The inimitable Masai El-Amin celebrated his ninth birthday this month.
After enjoying a classmate's Dave & Buster's party early in the day, the Young Master was exalted by family and friends at a basketball-themed house party.
The revelry wrapped up with a visit to Masai's classroom - complete with treats for the class and a video montage of "Masai, Through the Years".
The Lady of the House is excited to be included in a new photography book that recreates over 65 memorable movie images - using actors of color. "Black Hollywood: Reimagining Iconic Movie Moments" is available at Barnes and Noble and Amazon - and features an 8-page spread of 'someone you know' as Charlie Chaplin.
Just back from her trip East to portray a cop in "Operation Dark Site", Kelsey is retuning to Atlanta for a role in the Kemba Smith Story.
The film follows criminal justice reform advocate Kemba Smith, a woman charged as a co-conspirator to her college boyfriend's drug-trafficking crimes and sentenced to 24.5 years in federal prison with no opportunity for parole.
At OU (University of Oklahoma) they were known as the Freshman Four. What better reason to reunite than a wedding?! Malik and Kelsey traveled to Dallas to celebrate Abi and John's nuptials. The ceremony included beautiful Nigerian customs, in homage to Abi's culture. And the following day included TWO watch -parties for the OU/Texas game.
Anything for the Shot!
The sand dunes at the California Salton Sea are picturesque and innately cinematic. Which made them the perfect location for pick-up shots for Malik's feature film debut "Blackjack".
Malik and Kelsey were prepared for the four-hour drive from Winnetka. What they didn't anticipate was a zero-visibility sandstorm, rain and a fleet of obnoxiously loud dune buggies. But they got the shot. 'Cause that's how we DO on the westside!
