In the giving spirit, the Obama family served dinner to veterans on Thanksgiving in Washington, D.C. But what had everyone talking was the young man standing next to Sasha— who may be her boyfriend. We can neither confirm nor deny, but we kind of hope he is.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
For the holiday the co-parents spent time with family in Honolulu, Hawaii where they cooked up a storm. In tandem with her extra-ness, Mariah shared photos of her grocery shopping adventures in a low cut jumpsuit, skin tight jeans and heels. But all in all they seemed to have a lovely time— despite their recent divorce, Nick’s new baby on the way and Mariah’s sometimesy fiance, James Packer.
Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa
Baby Bash was the star of the home for Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa’s post breakup Thanksgiving. The couple seem to be doing an amazing job at co-parenting, as their son was filled with excitement Thanksgiving morning. When asked what he was thankful for, their 3-year-old said “Halloween decorations, pumpkin pie, chicken and carving pumpkins”— clearly he misses Halloween. Nonetheless, they were spotted as a happy family heading to a party in Los Angeles for the day.
The Wades and the Anthonys
In New York City, the Wades and Anthonys spent another Thanksgiving together but this time, shared a plate with New York Knicks’ player Derrick Rose. Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade posed in the hallway for cute pics— but it’s not clear if Dwyane’s sons were with them. Also in attendance were La La’s cousin Dice and friend Po, who had some fun on SnapCHat with the girls.
