Although we all miss Girlfriends and are praying UPN/CW resurrect it sometime soon, we still love seeing the amazing Tracee Ellis Ross out and about being as regal as her mother even if she's not portraying Joan.
Tracee is daughter of the infamous Diana Ross, as if you couldn't tell, but has spread her own wings and made a name for herself BY HERSELF.
Tracee did everything the right way, she graduated from Brown University with a theatre degree but later broke into the fashion industry as model and contributing fashion editor to Mirabella and New York Magazine.
Ross' first big screen roll was in 1996, an independent film called Fear Harbor. She later became the host of a Lifetime TV Show, The Dish, that kept tabs on pop culture. Tracee has played in many movies since her breakthrough roll, she seemed to have hit the ground running and never looked back. A few of her roles were in a HBO movie, Life Support, where she starred alongside her half brother Evan Ross and Queen Latifah; Tyler Perry's Daddy's Little Girls, that same year; she's appeared on Private Practice and CSI and most recently has landed her own BET sitcom, Reed Between the Lines with Malcolm-Jamaal Warner. Yes, we can't forget Girlfriends where her character, lawyer, Joan Clayton, won her an 2007 NAACP award for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series and an Image award in 2009.
The lovely natural 3b has found love in the brother of music producer and singer, Akon, Bu Thiam. We've heard he is a polygamist so we're hoping......he's let bygones be bygones.......and not marry Tracee and seven other women.
The NOTORIOUS LA Native has warmed our hearts with her awakening eyes and beautiful crown. We want nothing but the best for our cousin Tracee and hope she's begging for one last season of Girfriends as we all are.
Ladies and Gentleman.
Tracee Ellis Ross.
