Essence Music Festival is in full swing this weekend with celebs flocking to New Orleans to enjoy the festivities. The party of the weekend, without a doubt, was Kevin Hart’s celebrity birthday bash which took place at the Saint Hotel on Friday night. Everyone from Denzel Washington to Trey Songz, Tisha Campbell and LisaRaye came through to show support for the funny man who was celebrating his 32nd Birthday.

No matter what your expectations where for ‘Think Like A Man’s’ performance at the Box Office this weekend, the final numbers definitely were higher than everyone could have imagined. The film was ‘The Little Engine that could’, beating out heavy hitters ‘The Hunger Games’ and Zac Efron’s ‘The Lucky One’ for the Top Spot at the Box Office. The movie pulled in $12.2 million on Friday (almost completely recouping it’s $13 million production cost in it’s first day) and grossed over $33 million for the entire weekend.
On Saturday, after the film’s opening day numbers were released, the film’s stars Meagan Good (who was wearing a beautiful engagement ring), Michael Ealy, Regina Hall and Jerry Ferrara ['Turtle' from Entourage came up!!] visited four Los Angeles Area Theaters to surprise fans and personally thank them for supporting the film. Before walking into Universal City Walk, Jerry reacted to opening day numbers by saying:
We started [filming] 8 months ago. It must feel like mentally what a woman feels like during her last week of pregnancy. ‘Come on, I want to see what you look like already’. We were confident but this is more than I could have imagined.
And over at Baldwin Hills Rave Theater, Michael Ealy told fans over at the 9:25pm showing:
You guys are on the verge of making history with us and therefore we love you and thank you very much for that. This week is more than a movie, it’s a movement. The movie has exceeded all of our expectations and it’s because of you.
