It looks like those rumors that floated around last spring claiming that Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union had broken up for a while
and all the chatter about a couple of other women in his life were true. The Miami Heat superstar was on “Jay Leno” last week and told the late
night host that he and the actress took a break. Said Dwayne: “Celebrity relationships are very hard, and, for us, this was a busy year for us in
our relationship from the stand point of she was shooting her show ‘Being Mary Jane.’ She was gone most of the year.” He went on to say he was
dealing with his injuries, trying to win a championship, so they took a step back for a little while. However, they are now back together and
Dwayne says Gabby has been with him all summer long.

Kerry Washington’s
husband, Nnamdi Asomugha’s team, the San Francisco 49ers had a game against the Indianapolis Colts on September 22, so he couldn’t
make it to the Emmys. Unfortunately, the Colts beat the 49ers 27-7. However, Kerry took her parents, Valerie and Earl to the Emmys as her date.
While Kerry lost out on the Best Actress in A Drama Series Award to Claire Danes, she won the fashion award for the night wearing
a Marchesa gown, Fred Leighton jewels and carrying an Edie Parker clutch. It was also a beautiful moment when she and Diahann Carroll, who is now 78, presented the award for Best Actor In A Drama Series to Jeff Daniels.

Following the September 22 matinee performance of the off-Broadway play “Stop.Reset,” Magic and Cookie Johnson were spotted having
dinner with the show’s playwright/drector Regina Taylor, Tony nominated director Kenny Leon,actress LaTanya Richardson, Tonya Lewis Lee and publicist Steven Manning at Amaranthe on East 62 Second Street in New York City.
“Stop.Reset” runs through September 29 at the Signature Theatre on West 42nd Street.

Lionsgate will release Zane’s popular erotic novel “Addicted” in theaters on March 15, 2014. “Addicted” follows the life of a sex
crazed African American business woman as she goes through the trials and tribulations of life. The film stars Sharon Leal, Tasha Smith, Boris Kodjoe, Tyson Beckford, among others. Billie Woodruff is the director.


Music Industry heavyweight and Big Baller Jimmy Iovine threw a pre-Emmy party at his estate on September 21. The high-rollers at
his soiree included Mick Jagger, Oprah Winfrey, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Bono and Dr. Dre. R. Kelly put
on an impromptu performance. Sources say Oprah, who admitted last week that she had nervous breakdown symptons over her fledgling OWN network and
the pressure of filming “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” gushed over meeting Jagger for the first time. Oprah should hang with Yours
Truly. I met Jagger years ago when I was just a rookie reporter.
