#tbt to making musíca w/ these 2 talented peeps 🤘🏼😜
I can’t tell you how many times people have introduced me to their best friends as, “She’s my Gayle.” The reason our friendship has worked for over 40 years, without arguments or fallouts, is that we’ve always been happy with our own lives. A true friend can’t be jealous of you, or want to take advantage of you in any way. Ever since we met in 1976, we’ve been doing the same thing. Listening. Talking. Laughing (a lot). Building dreams. Cheering. Being a shoulder to cry on. Speaking the truth. Being the truth. And now? Posing for our FIRST @oprahmagazine cover for September’s friendship issue. Link in bio for more. 📸: @ruvenafanador
In the beginning was the Word. Toni Morrison took the word and turned it into a Song…of Solomon, of Sula, Beloved, Mercy, Paradise Love, and more. She was our conscience. Our seer. Our truth-teller. She was a magician with language, who understood the Power of words. She used them to roil us, to wake us, to educate us and help us grapple with our deepest wounds and try to comprehend them. It is exhilarating and life-enhancing every time I read and share her work. This pic was her first appearance on the Oprah Show. She was Empress-Supreme among writers. Long may her WORDS reign!
This video makes me so happy. Zoey 101 was such a big part of my life & I have memories with these people that will last a lifetime. Reuniting with them all last night was really something special🤗. There were moments where we were all laughing & I would look around at all their faces and just smile. Because it really felt like nothing had changed. Like I was a teenager again filming this show that changed my life & touched so many people. Anyway, I love you guys!!! @mattunderwood @rioflynn @erinzariah @paulbutcher @chrismasseytmb @abbywilde P.S. We missed you @jamielynnspears. See you at the next one 😊❤️ And thank you @danwarp for working your magic & making all this happen!!! Oh and also for seeing little 12 year old me, believing in her & casting her in a show that would change her life. 🙏🏼 More pics to come 😜
Sisters who wear flower print dresses together, stay together. That’s a saying right? 🌸 Also, we did not plan the dress coordination. We’re just that in sync ;). Love u @themadgrace. There’s no other person I’d rather kneel on a giant bed at a rooftop party in Venice with ❤️😌 📷: @cassidyblisscooper
Took a break from baby shower festivities to do my own photo shoot in front of this door 😂😂😂. It was too good not to! All my favorite colors 👌🏼. 📷: @themadgrace Also, sometimes it blows my mind that these pictures were taken on a PHONE. Like what?! We’ve come a long way from the flip phone days. Pretty sweet.
Back in LA & trying to maintain this ocean side state of mind 😌. I miss & love you Hollywood, Florida! You were just what I needed. I grew up on this beach & have so many memories there. It will always hold a special place in my heart 🙏🏼🌊💚 Also being in this water feels like you’re swimming in a bathtub & it’s heavennn
It’s a scorcher! 🌴💦
Everyone’s safe including all the animals. Thank you for your service. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾#mauipolicedepartment #mauifiredepartment #mauihumanesociety
I’m back in my hometown! I’ve missed you Hollywood,Florida 🤗. Being back here feels like a warm (and very humid) hug. ALSO, I’m at the @zicococonut Sip.Style.Swim Pop-Up enjoying the NEW Coco-Refresh.... and it’s sooo delicious 👅💕#Ad #ZICOPartner (📸: John Parra / Getty Images for ZICO)

So great catching up with you today @pilot_pete ! For those of you who watch the Bachelorette, I’m sure you know Peter. We’ve been friends since I was 9 back in Florida & our moms are good friends (so let’s not start any crazy rumors ha). We all haven’t seen each other in years & it was so much fun catching up & reminiscing. 🤗 I still have no idea how the show ends! Can’t wait to seeeeee 😎🌹

Huge shoutout to our director Joe Cross, who is an awesome human, so much fun & so easy to work with 🙏🏼💘 In theaters July 12!
Most comfortable show I’ve done EVER! IN SNEAKERS 👟👟 Almost burned last night’s heels but instead I gave them to an audience member in tonight’s show. All I have to say to her is: Wear them, put them in your closet, use them as sculpture…just bless your feet 🤣🤣 Thank you, Edmonton! Last stop: Vancouver! #PathMadeClear
Flew back to LA today, sadly my Turkish trip & shoot with @modelistemagazine has come to an end 😔. But, this lounge at @igairport was the craziest thing ever! Chefs everywhere, a putting green & even an art gallery. It was awesome. ❤️ Thank you for everything @turkishairlines , we had an amazing time ! #turkishairlines #modelistemagazine #widenyourworld
Calgary I loved being with you tonite🇨🇦...but my feet died about 20 minutes into the show. Could you tell?! The pitch of the shoe was killing the balls of my feet and I could barely move. Looking for a fire pit to burn these shoes!🔥🔥 #PathMadeClear
Thank you Montreal. 3 cheers to you all and loved walking in your beautiful Mount Royal Park! Now off to Calgary tonight! If you’re coming to the show, I want to know: Where are you on your path and what is the dream you hold for yourself? Link in bio for tickets. #PathMadeClear 🇨🇦
Surrounded by beautiful carpets & hats & lanterns & all things magical today in Cappadocia. Had the best time at @sultan_carpets . I don’t want to leave 😩❤️
Everyone says Canadians are kind and that was proven especially true in Montréal tonight. Thank you for giving me your Sunday night, I loved being with you. Enjoy the Toronto @raptors parade tomorrow! #PathMadeClear 🇨🇦
1st day in Turkey was a success 💘 Here’s a little behind the scenes from my shoot today w/ @modelistemagazine . We took an amazing boat ride on the Bosphorus river, it was absolutely beautiful. 🇹🇷😍
Look who came for dinner @chicagosmayor and wife Amy. Our first time meeting. #sweethomechicago
Headed to a Luau themed party today! 🤙🏼 🌸 Hope you guys are having a great Sunday & smiling wherever you are :)
Downtown LA post rain showers is quite a magical thing. There was literally no one in the streets. So I danced 🖤🌧 📷: @danpopsd
And what about this scene? @niecynash1 you killed it with @msisisking. Still haunted by @whentheyseeus. If you haven’t seen yet...please do. And for everyone who says it’s “hard to watch,” think about the people who still find it “hard to live.” All those families impacted! So proud of my sister friend @ava!
Welcome to the Velvet Underground, I saved you a seat. Tell me something I don’t know about you 😏🖤 *sidenote: this room makes me crave red velvet cake 🤤 📷: @ianspanier
Writing day 🎶 is there any music that’s inspiring you right now?
Happy birthday @themadgrace !! I can’t believe you’re 23 😱❤️. I love you so much! You’re my fave partner in crime & no one makes me laugh quite like you do. You bring so much good energy & positivity into this world & I love that about you. You have such a good heart & an adventurous spirit & I can’t wait for all the other amazing adventures life has in store for us together. It was my lucky day the day that you were born, I couldn’t imagine my life without you as my sister. Love you always! ❤️😘 🎈👯
It was an honor meeting these incredible men & women recently! I have so much respect for our armed forces & for anyone who’s fighting for our country & our freedom. Today, I’m remembering all our heroes who have served & given their lives in the past. You are not forgotten 🙌🏼 🇺🇸 🙏🏼#MemorialDay
Rooftop party for one please! 💁🏻♀️ Hope you guys have an awesome weekend. Any fun plans?
I don’t know who this guy is but he sure is happy to graduate! I shook hands with all 571 members of @coloradocollege's Class of 2019 and gave them a copy of The Path Made Clear. 📸: Jerilee Bennett/The Gazette

Do you ever just sit alone in the middle of an empty field with bugs everywhere and ponder the beauty of a dandelion? Me either, but I like this pic. ;)
Today I accepted the @hollywoodreporter’s Empowerment in Entertainment Award in honor of their new inclusion initiative, The Young Executives Fellowship. Students in underserved schools will be given the chance to access the business, marketing, and filmmaking side of Hollywood, all with the intention of empowering this next generation.

I’ve known these girls since they were 12 and 13 coming to my school. Graduating from college. Grad school. Now our first wedding. Looking for the perfect dress. #biglifemoment❣️
Maya would have been 91 today! This is my favorite picture of us. Even in death I feel the “unbroken continuity” of her mother-sister-friendship referenced in the Henry Scott Holland canon 🙏🏽❤️ Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away to the next room. I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, That, we still are. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without effect. Without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same that it ever was. There is absolute unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you. For an interval. Somewhere. Very near. Just around the corner. All is well.
Wanna get Lifted?!! So many of you are. It makes me so happy that 5 million downloads are resonating across the planet. I’ve been binge listening myself. And I declare, I still learn something new and rejuvenating every time. We’re halfway through our 10 part series. Come binge with me on #ANewEarth and feel the Lift!
Look who came for lunch director extraordinaire @nadinelabaki and her producer husband Khaled. I love their movie #Capernaum so much. If you get the chance , See it!
I’m so excited to share with you the first look at our new scripted drama #DavidMakesMan. I knew as soon as I heard the pitch from @octarell_again that this was something that the world needed to see.
Can’t stop thinking about this movie. #Capernaum Saw it 3 days ago. Didn’t know when I watched it that the cast members were real people. Including these 2 phenomenal kids. Story of a young boy who sues his parents to stop having children they can’t afford. It’s about that and so much more. Surviving the daily traumas of being poor,proving your existence matters with no “papers.” Was nominated for Golden Globes. Hope the same happens for Oscars so more people can see it. Really worthy of your time. #Capernaum means chaos.
I couldn’t think of a better way to show how powerful and intense this season of @iyanlavanzant is going to be, besides showing you this. Iyanla stirring that tea cup gives me chills ☕️Everybody, breathe. The new season of #FixMyLife starts Tonight, 9p|8c.
