What Ever Happened to Adrienne Bailon? She Was Always the Coolest Cheetah Girl
When ABC Family debuts its brand new end-of-the-year special, That's So Throwback, we finally get to revisit all of our favorite ’90s and ’00s TV shows. Now you can say goodbye to 2014 with classic episodes of Lizzie McGuire, That's So Raven and Even Stevens. But more importantly, at the stroke of midnight on Jan. 1, the station will be airing Disney Channel's greatest Original Movie The Cheetah Girls . Whether you're willing to turn away from your New Years Eve party or not, this is the one you'll want to record because who wouldn't want to catch a glimpse of the four hottest felines around? Back in the day, Raven Symone, Sabrina Bryan and the beautiful girls of 3LW were all the rage. The question of the hour, however, is where in the heck they are now and most importantly, where is my favorite Cheetah Girl, Adrienne Bailon?
It was pretty inevitable to have a favorite Cheetah Girl as an early '00s preteen, and for many of us that was the already world-reknowned Latin singer-songwriter Bailon. A gorgeous Latina with a bubbly personality and the flawless chops to go with it, Adrienne was the Cheetah you wanted as your best friend. Well, the good news is she hasn't gone very far — Adrienne is the one Cheetah Sister whose face is almost everywhere you look.
She Dated Rob Kardashian At Least Long Enough to "Keep Up" With
It's been five years since Adrienne and Rob were together, but Adrienne told Latina magazine that her
13 episodes on Keeping Up With the Kardashians has linked her to the Kardashians forever in the public's eyes. And she is not happy about it. And apparently neither is Kim.
She's the Stunning Host of Nail'd It on Oxygen
Nail art is one of the hottest new fashion trends, so it was only a matter of time before someone turned it into a TV phenomenon. Oxygen beat everybody to it by creating Nail'd It, an innovative competition series, starring (you guessed it) Bailon. Nail prodigy Ashley Craig kept her head in the game long enough to win the first $100,000 nail-art grand prize.
She Also Co-Hosts The Real with Some Other Familiar Faces
Alongside a pretty diverse cast, Adrienne joins her fellow Disney Channel beauty Tamera Mowry-Housley in this hour-long, five-days-a-week, talk-variety show on FOX. It's no secret that Adrienne and Sister Sister star Tamera Mowry are both unapologetically outspoken young women with unique perspectives, so the hosting chair is exactly where the two of them should be.
She Hasn't Given Up On Acting Quite Yet
You can find this lower-eastide NYC Latina on screen in 2013's I'm in Love with a Church Girl and Lovestruck: The Musical. But most recently, Adrienne appeared as herself in the brand new TV Series My Crazy Love, about what extent couples would go to please their partners or get their attention. I haven't gotten the chance to see it myself, but with any luck, she gives us some juicy details about Rob.
She's Rightfully Been Invited to Appear on Plenty Reality Shows — Including the BET Awards
Since Adrienne is such a big TV Personality, it is only fitting that she is consistently invited to host red carpets like BET, Urban Latin music festivals, and more. Even if The Real falls through, you won't be losing Adrienne's face again any time soon.
She is a Fashion Icon in Her Own Right
There is no way around it — Bailon is a stunning human being. She is a fashion-forward 31-year-old with flawless hair, bright eyes and a smile you can't possibly miss. She's been a fashion icon since her 3LW days and that's why she's constantly chosen to host red carpets and trendy nail art competitions.
