New Couple Alert!! Anika Noni Rose And Tavis Smiley

: MediaTakeOut.com just received a very interesting piece of information. One of our loyal readers is claiming that Tavis Smiley is dating Dreamgirls actress Anika Noni Rose. Here's what she had to say about it.

I can't believe you all have not reported that Anika Noni Rose has been Dating Tavis Smiley for almost 2 months!!!!!!!!!! My cousin saw them out together yesterday. He was touching all over her waist in public and [that was surprising because] he is supposed to be so righteous and proper...

He had met her for the first time in March at NAACP 38th Image awards, then she came on his show. But ever since then they have been spending lots of lots of time together.

We're not sure whether or not it's true, but they would make a good looking couple...

I don't see how anyone could date Tavis Smiley...He seems to be a wonderful man for all he does for black america...but a tad bit on the boring side, IMO.

Just because a black man isn't running around talking about I get ho*s and getting arrested for making it rain in a strip club, he's boring? It is ashame that a man is intelligent, has written books and created forums for how to uplift his own people, doesn't sell out to the mainstream MTV and BET culture of dumbing down is seen as boring or a rumor is started that he is go. You and I both know that he is straighter than an arrow and you all should appreciate him for not being a sell-out like other people. He's a great catch. If I was ten years older, I'd date him.

@mrshornsby ....Quit dat playin>>>Tavis aint gay...you so crazy. And what makes your "facts" so credible. You got some pictures? Ahhh...if I may, can somebody pls tell me who Anika is? I don't know her..as if I should..

@Amarie4911...I feel whatcha sayin and yes we all do have a longggg way to go when it comes to giving our peeps (men mainly) there just due for being a positive influence in society. Now, as for the "He's a great catch" part, it would take a little more getting to know "him" as a person before I could render that statement, but as for what I've seen, I would entertain him with conversation over dinner. For all we know he may turn to Shrek at sunrise...Ya nevah know! LOL J/K

The thing that gets be about this post...How does him touching her waist make him not "righteous and proper"?....If its true, there's nothing wrong with showing some affection to the one you're with... But yeah, Tavis has been a classy and intelligent dude from jump, making lots of good things happen.

Anika Noni Rose is a 1990 Graduate of Bloomfield High from Bloomfield CT. She first started out on Broadway, which she won a Tony Award. She has been in alot of low budget films before Dreamgirls, she has also been seen on the series The Starters Wife on USA, and she will be the voice of the first black princess for disney.

I just know that this brother needs a primetime show. He's doing his thing on PBS, but his intelligence, thought-provoken rhetoric and discussions, and his absolute straight-forward approach to his people and our state begs for more attention. Tavis is one of those brothers that ole whitey, and some black folks want to keep under the radar.

I love Tavis! He is smart and very intelligent and doing BIG things. And I love his nice big thick body. I just didn't like it when he shaved his mustasche off. There should be more black men around like Tavis and he loves his mom. I"M A HUGE FAN OF HIS - VERY, VERY, VERY INTERESTING MAN! I remember when he had his own show on BET and he was let go because he had a very controversial person on there.

@Butch31 There are men who have married by 30 and are still dealing with gay/bi issues. Some men marry by 30 so no one will suspect them of being bisexual. So, YOUR THEORY IS NOT ALWAYS TRUE. There are men in their 40's and 50's coming out of the closets and leaving their children and wives of 25 years to live the gay life 100%.

she was so good in Dreamgirls but she got so overshadowed by Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson..she didnt get the props she deserved..but hey, before that movie no one knew who she was so I guess that movie was a big break for her..they make a cute couple if its true..I thought she was in her 20's but if she graduated HS in 1990 she must be about 35-36..so shes aging very well..I hope she gets more work in Hollywood because lawd knows Im sick of the same black actresses getting all the roles..Taraji P Henson is becoming the new Nia Long, shes everywhere now..I love homegirl and all, but I like to see other people get some shine

@Mrblackman...u r soooooo *B-R-I-T-E* Lol! @Hottiii...hopefully u dont look or smell like her But just clarify wut i wrote...follow along Men that are not married by 30, are fighting somekind struggle w/societies norm, like married with kids, if not they are not ready to commit 4 sum reason. Most have same gender issues, or are confused. The people u guys are referring to, are peeps who were just living a lie, and faked it as long as they could. There is no comparrison between the two


hotttii

@ butch31 How do you know what this woman smells like? You have never been that close to her and never will be. I bet you are truly as ignorant as you sound. Obviously you have conformed your mind around what society has set as the average age for being married. Who said if a man wasn't married by "30" it meant GAY or BISEXUAL????? follow along - WOW! I wonder what Jay-Z and Jermaine Dupree, just to name a couple of 'over 30' celebrity males think of your "whack ass" theory.

Last month MTO reported that Tavis was about to MARRY Fredricka Whitfield from CNN. What happened to that story? Growing up, we didn't have a lot of long marriages in my family. We had women who divorced and never married again (not married 5 & 6 times); so we ended up with a lot of single mothers. My brother was so afraid of that that he dated his girlfriend for years and would not commit to any female. He's a black professional too. He finally settled down in his 40s. He did date the entire time but he just wouldn't commit. There's a difference between never seeing a man in a heterosexual relationship and one who is dating. Trust, a lot of these male celebs over 35 who aren't attached or married yet, they're still playing the field or are not ready to settle down yet. Some men take a long time to want to settle down. I could not date someone for 10+ years so we would have to part ways.

here's a suggestion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for those of you who keep insisting on posting "who cares" "1st, 2nd, 3rd" with nothing else to say...DON'T b/c while you DON'T care, you keep these type of stories going and going b/c OBVIOUSLY MTO looks at the amot of "comments" these stories receive. so, DON'T leave a comment to ANY post if you simply want to make a lame statement that in turn makes you look just as lame! i don't even log into to this site UNLESS i'm going to post something relevant whether it's silly or not, i still post something other than "who cares" and "1st, 2nd, 3rd" 413 comments about who's got the biggest booty! and almost half of them were wining about how "black women are being degraded" well.......thanks to your comments that [overshadow] the 3 comments about a more relevant issue, this story seems to be more interestng EVEN if it isn't! i'm only saying this b/c MTO stated themselves in an article that they give "us" readers what we want to see based off of the amount of comments. so if the story doesn't move you and i'm sure you can figure that out before you click on it, don't add your two cents b/c 9/10 you will contribute to more posts like these! i've learned my lesson...

Im not sure why people are assuming this man is boring. How can a well spoken, educated man be boring? Im sure he would have plenty to talk about. Is it that a man like that would intimidate some of you? I for one, (if I was single) would jump at a chance to get to know a succesful educated man like that. OK, maybe his cut is a bit outdated but other than that I see nothing wrong with this man. All these rappers get madd props from women on this site, but why wouldnt a man like Tavis? Just a q I wanted to throw out there. Peace!

First off---Tavis Smiley is 100% Straight!!! Tavis is a man who definitely LOVES wommen! How do I know this?? I know him! Tavis keeps his personal dating life very private, but he definitely dates women and has relationships with women! Instead of spreading viscious rumors about a man who is continually striving to make a difference in society for minorities, try to focus on what you each can do to contribute to the betterment of society.

January 30, 2008. As much work as Tavis Smiley does, it doesn't exempt the question mark on top of his head. Check out how Tavis Smiley smiles so hard when he photo with a guy opposed to taking pictures with a woman. I personal had pictures taken with Tavis and the look on his face was dumbfounded and lost. I thought okay let me examine the situation. Over the years I have seen him take pictures with many women and the look is the same. It's like a goofy look. Now compare that to the pictures with men, its totally different-all witty and what- you know the deal. If Tavis is not Gay, then he sure can be one of the candidates next in line.
