Misc: The Word X

Not much in The Word this week since Rashida's been laying low during her break...


Clare Guerrero Vivier, a handbag designer from LA, posted her thank-you note from Rashida

UPDATE: Clare had second thoughts about sharing that personal note and has taken it down; she wanted to respect Rashida's privacy and maintain her own integrity by not using something like that for personal and/or financial gain. We think that's very admirable of her so we've taken it down too.
To those of you who saved a copy, please don't re-post it anywhere. Thanks guys!

Business Wire: Hollywood's Hottest Flock to the Gansevoort Resort in Turks & Caicos
Hollywood has taken to the beaches and their first choice for fun and relaxation is the newly opened Gansevoort Turks & Caicos! The breathtakingly intimate resort, on the island of Providenciales, is an opulent escape from civilization located on 400 feet of the purest white sand in the Caribbean. The resort has already hosted Ellen Pompeo, Molly Sims, Rashida Jones, John Legend, Emmanuelle Chriqui and Haylie Duff, who threw a bachelorette party for Jenna Dewan at the resort’s playful beach club, Elisha Cuthbert and Dion Phaneuf, Jack Osbourne, Bethany Frankel and Will McCormack, with many more set to visit!...

“The Gansevoort Turks & Caicos is amazing,” claims Rashida Jones. “It was just the vacation I needed. Never in my life have I seen such crystal clear water!”

Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, and Rachel Dratch had a girls' night at Vento in the Meatpacking District.

Me, Myself An Eye did an interesting post about interracial romances onscreen and black/mixed actors in Hollywood, citing Rashida, Thandie Newton, Zoe Saldana and Maya Rudolph as examples.

MMAE: Away Y'all Go
...Rashida Jones (daughter of Quincy), who notably played Jim's other love interest on The Office, had a role last year as the wife-to-be in I Love You, Man. She's played the girlfriend/wife opposite a White actor in a number of films and TV shows. (Yes, now you see where I am going.)...
...It seems like Hollywood is getting mighty comfortable with the casting of Black actresses opposite White males. In most of these films, however, the race of the woman is not discussed. And like most Black actors in non-Black films, the women come unencumbered by Black friends or family members...
