Can You Find Anything Wrong With This Picture?

More than one blogger or reporter has related that some so-called “red carpet fashion police” took issue with the appearance of Academy Award nominee Viola Davis, star of the movie, “The Help” at the recent Academy Awards gathering. Specifically, it was said that she should have worn a wig, because her natural hair was not “formal,” not appropriate for such an affair. Most prominently mentioned in those reports was talk show host Wendy Williams who apparently has a problem with Ms. Davis going natural, going back to basics and embracing her own authentic, stunning and powerful beauty.

Ms. Davis reportedly told E!’s Ryan Seacrest that her mother styled her hair, and credited her husband for encouraging the natural look.

“My husband wanted me to take the wig off,” Davis told In Style. “He said, ‘If you want to wear it for your career, that’s fine, but in your life wear your hair. Step into who you are!’”

Sister Viola’s husband is actor Julius Tennon. They were married in June 2003. She says she was impressed with him from their very first date; that he had the kind of absolute integrity that she craved, and had almost given up hope of ever finding in anyone.

“He was a single father for 16, 17 years; he raised his children by himself, as well as pursuing a career in acting,” Ms. Davis relates. “So he has character. He’s a good man. And he endeared himself to me because he was different from anyone else I dated, because he was extraordinarily emotionally available and kind and generous.” She’s proud that their relationship is a true partnership. It sustains her in many ways, tangible and intangible. “I can absolutely say that I’m happy,” Davis adds.  (Source: Pamela Renner. “Truly, Madly, Intimately.” 9/2004.)

 In addition to the two sons that husband Julius raised, the Tennon/Davis family also includes an infant daughter, Genesis, who they adopted in October 2011.

The beautiful Ms. Davis was born on her grandmother’s farm, at the former Singleton Plantation, in St. Matthews, SC. — the second youngest of six children. Her mother, Mary Alice, was a maid, factory worker, and homemaker, and her father, Dan Davis, was a horse trainer. Her family moved to Central Falls, Rhode Island a few months after she was born. Davis has described herself as having “lived in abject poverty and dysfunction” during her childhood. (Read more about Ms. Davis  @
