The drive by the Democratic-led House of Representatives to impeach President Donald Trump was the top news story of 2019, according to the Associated Press. As for other big happenings in the last year of this decade… celebrity weddings included Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Lauren Hashian, Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman, “Queen & Slim” star Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson and Nicki Minaj & Kenneth Petty.
The baby boom was small, with just Psalm Kardashian-West being born to Kanye West and Kim Kardashian and Meghan Markle gave birth to she and Prince Harry’s baby boy, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.
Despite all of the happy marriages, there were break-ups and 2019 was not immune to them. Celebs who called it quits included Niecy Nash and Jay Tucker, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hirsi, Kenya Moore and Marc Daly, Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes, Malika Haqq and O.T. Genesis, Wendy Williams and Kevin Hunter, Monica and Shannon Brown, Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian and Toni Braxton and Birdman.
Sadly we lost Toni Morrison, John Singleton, Congressman Elijah Cummings, Saoul Mamby, Diahann Carroll, John Witherspoon, Juice WRLD and Nipsey Hussle. Farewell, rest in peace. As we enter into 2020 and a brand new decade, Yours Truly wants to thank all of you readers for your support. There is nothing like this business we call “show.”
