Issa Rae Ties the Knot


Two years ago HBO hit series 'Insecure' star and creator Issa Rae shut down rumors that she was engaged [click here if you missed that]. 

Yeah well, over the weekend Issa tied the knot...

Issa Rae confirmed the happy news this morning with a tongue in cheek announcement about an impromptu wedding dress photoshoot with friends

Vera Wang huh??? So it would have just killed you to choose a Black designer.....

"rooting for everybody black" my ass!!!!

She actually looks beautiful as a bride because she's a very unattractive woman. Her "husband" looks like he is paid to be with her. That's the most disinterested, forced-looking groom I've ever seen. Usually the groom is glowing. He looks like a stand-in. Even Kanye looked happier on his wedding day.

EDIT: Nevermind...my dumb ass read the whole post. This is impromptu. No wonder he looks bored.

cosigning 11:02 ...
don't call this "hating"...
Issa is really NOT attractive looking at all

R in NYC said...

She does look radiant. Good for her but I hope she has a prenup.

Errrybody out here biggin' Up Cardi and her Hermes bags =- NOT a black handbag designer, but Issa is getting shit for a Vera Wang? OK then.

Issa employs MANY black folk....MANY...now what?

I'm so happy for her and it was a beautiful dress and frankly she is beyond beautiful. That man is very lucky. I loved she kept it low key and it really has a air of beauty to it versus just a bunch of opulence and keeping it low key is perfect. Issa Rae is a queen

I agree with 11:19. She's about keeping things personal for her. Not showing over the top opulence just cause she can. She looks amazing and her husband looks like he genuinely loves her. Either way, bottom line is the inner workings of their relationship is none of my business. I wish them nothing but blessings...Vera Wang dress and all (which is actually beautiful)

ISSA looks very beautiful. These aren't good photos of her husband though. He doesn't seem as interested or happy / glowing like his bride does. And, it's interesting that the poster mentioned ISSA choosing Vera (a racial minority designer who's known for her wedding dresses) ...as if she has to pick someone black...as if Vera isn't synonymous with beauty, elegant, wedding gowns. #niggaplease

@11:16am
That's what I'm saying...Issa has accomplished something amazing. She literally had to grind/build from social media platforms to the big time, and she's employed and elevated a LOT of Black entertainers along the way. She brought other folks to HBO!

And does every woman have to be gorgeous? People ignore it, but real talk, if you aren't in the "pretty Black girl" club (especially if you are dark) Black folks will be hypercritical of your looks. I didn't get it at first, but now I see how people treat darker girls who aren't super pretty. This is so unnecessary. Damn.

And Vera Wang is THE wedding dress designer. There's nothing wrong with having a world-renowned designer create your dress.

Do y'all think EVERY Black female celeb had a Black designer create their dresses??! You going to say something about Bey, Angela Bassett, etc too? LMAO

Issa is stunning!!!

I swear it is our own that tear us down the most!!

She’s a beautiful bride. Best wishes to her and the groom.

Yall really are hating @ 11:02 and 11:12. She didnt marry yall so her looks really shouldn’t be a topic or concern.
I agree with 12:19 except for the super pretty comment. I would replace it with they dont fit certain standards of beauty that wasn’t necessarily created by us or go against typical negroid features. (SN: I hope those ladies continues to show their appreciation for their natural born features).

I don't care for the unnecessarily hypersexual direction Insecure went in but it's Hollywood so that's to be expected. Nonetheless, she did her thing and represented for her people in a funny and unique way with both ABG & Insecure. As for her marriage, good for her that she actually found a brother to be her helpmate despite her newfound fame. I ain't mad at that as long as they're good to one another. Congrats to them.

Why is it that when a Black person is not a fan of a black celebrity, we're hating or tearing someone down. Issa is a soulless and dirty as her white/Jew counterparts. Her "black girl magick" shtick is to get black folks money. Issa is annoying AF. I prefer Shonda Rhimes or something similar.

@ms Mac

I agree. Everything made for HBO or Starz is porn now. Even The Sopranos didn't have gratuitous sex or extreme gratuitous violence. Besides gratuitous cursing, it had good storylines and was still entertaining without being overly smutty.

"I would replace it with they dont fit certain standards of beauty that wasn’t necessarily created by us or go against typical negroid features."

Thank you for correcting me! I should've worded that differently. As you can see, even when I tried to acknowledge these insane beauty standards, I still adhered to them with my wording. :-/


But that was my point; as a community we are far too critical of looks, especially when it comes to dark skinned women. Issa is an attractive woman. And even if she wasn't deemed attractive by the masses, she is amazingly talented, deserves love, and deserved to have a magical wedding day.

Congrats to the happy couple.

they look lovely!

@2:49 becasue you referred to her looks, tell me you hate her brand of comedy, tell me you think she writes like a teenager...but telling me she's not attractive, you're a hater... and you haven't evolved much since middle school apparently

I'm not a fan of Issa Rae I didn't like her show, and she comes off as a big phony. She should of left the horse hair on the horse's tail.

I don't know her work. I can only hear the comments from ppl that do. The comments are always a mixed bag about this women.
She could have uplifted a black designer. There are some very good ones.
Something about her comes off Bisexual. Her husband is very handsome.

Everything looks beautiful to me. Congratulations!!! Hopefully anyone who has a problem with it finds happiness as well in some form or another.

What if her Black stylist chose the Vera Wang? People complain about eveything meanwhile the rappers only mention Gucci, Prada and Versace. SHe looks stunning and I am sure Amanda Seales was not invited to this either.
