The first annual Jamie Foxx Celebrity Weekend in Atlantic City got off to a rocking good start with Oscar Award winning comedian Jamie Foxx hosting an allstar comedy show special that featured Aries Spears, Lavell Crawford, Speedy and Earthquake. One of the highlights of the comedy show was when Jamie was backstage talking about his love and respect for comedic legend Richard Pryor. It was a moment of candor and sincerity of what his childhood hero meant to him. It was funny but at the same time very touching.
The comedy show was then followed by the official Black Hollywood afterparty that was hosted by movie and TV stars Idris Elba (Takers, RockNRolla and HBOs The Wire) and Meagan Good (Jumping The Broom, Stomp The Yard and BETs The Game) with other special guest appearances by actor JD Williams, comedian Earthquake, DJ Whoo Kid, Foxxhole radio co-host Brandi MaGee and NBA legend Gary Payton.
Day two of the Jamie Foxx Celebrity weekend would pick up where day one left off with the KING magazine Models and Bottles beach party, Erykah Badu’s, Queen Of Neo-Soul concert, the Jamie Foxx BlackJack Tournament and the Love And Basketball themed afterparty hosted by Amber Rose and NBA allstar Kevin Durant. As always, Amber Rose looked absolutely stunning. But I couldn’t really understand the premise for the new look wig she was wearing, but hey, that was a whole different topic of discussion. What do you guys think of the new look Amber Rose? Hmmm.
Jim Jones, DJ Clue, Meagan Good and Juelz Santana were just a few of the celebrities that stopped by to show Jamie Foxx some love.
With the success of the Jamie Foxx Celebrity weekend only in its first year, hopefully Jamie and his celebrity friends can continue to bring A-list talent to Atlantic City for years to come.
