LOS ANGELES-BASED FASHION MAGAZINE, DESIRABLE MAG, INTRODUCES NEW LAYOUT, WITH ACTRESS LISARAYE ON COVER!
(ATLANTA, GA – September 16, 2013) – Desirable Magazine has decided to change things up a bit and revamp their entire magazine layout and who better than to have on the Cover to introduce this amazing change for the better than the beautiful and talented actress, LisaRaye McCoy. The Luxury Fashion Magazine’s Brand Manager, Lydia Pierre, who is based in Atlanta, had the pleasure of interviewing Ms. LisaRaye who recently covered Ebony Magazine alongside Chaka Khan and Jurnee-Smollett Bell. “I haven’t done this since my last cover with Ebony, so this is big for me!” said LisaRaye when speaking on the Desirable Covershoot. Having the honor of having LisaRaye team up with Desirable Magazine to launch this very new and eye-catching layout is something that the magazine hopes will help take it to a whole new level. “LisaRaye effortlessly stunned everyone on set with her god-bearing talents, her beauty and her energy”, says Lydia. The concept behind Desirable Magazine is to showcase a side of individuals that no one has ever seen before by taking them outside of their comfort zone, and once again, they nailed it and this time, with LisaRaye!
interview with the beautiful star focuses on LisaRaye past, present and future in fashion. The Issue is scheduled to be released in November 2013. Read more…

My God, I loved being pregnant. Swollen feet, morning sickness, constipation and Mac truck-sized pre-natal vitamins aside, feeling that little body flutter against my belly, knowing that I was carrying God’s miracle—flesh of my flesh, blood of my blood—was truly one of the most incomparably incredible things I’ve ever done in my 42 years of breathing. Plus, for the first time in my life, I had boobs. And long, thick, shiny hair. And flawless skin that glowed. And nobody questioned my affinity for popsicles and Haagen Dazs and broccoli—or my penchant for mixing them all together at one sitting. And I got to walk around with a big ol’ pot belly and oversized clothes and everybody thought it was beautiful. No, seriously: I loved maternity clothes. Loved them.
They fit my belly and my booty and my boobies—something that never seemed to happen, like, ever, when I had the super-curvy, flat-chested, Coke-bottle body that just refused to fit into outfits sans tailoring or rigging. That was pre-J-Lo, Buffy the Body, stretch material and PZI jeans.
I’m reminiscing about how beautiful and super-powery and Wonder Girl I felt pregnant because of the November 2011 issue of EBONY magazine, which features the 42-year-old, very pregnant, very nude superstar beauty Nia Long. I’m just sayin’. Take a look at the picture. Right. ‘Nuff said.
According to EBONY, the cover story on the Boyz ‘N the Hood, love jones, and The Best Man star gives readers “an inside look into her pregnancy diary, the shocking news that made her knees buckle, and how she and her partner, Ime Udoka, are handling the changes and bracing for a new chapter in life. She also opens up to EBONY for the first time ever about her humble roots, reconnecting with family in the West Indies, raising her son, finding her life mate—and about the pregnancy that wasn’t suppose to happen.
