And a new year is off to a fantastic start for gabrielle. She just got engaged. Congratulations and welcome. Thank you. So can you tell us a little bit about your fiance who happens to be nba superstar d. Wade, dwyane wade, how did he pop the question? Him and the kids like got together and planned it out like to the tee. They wanted me to be surprised. They wanded to catch me off guard. We were just spending what i thought to be a fun day with the kids having a little quality time. We went to brunch then we went to tour our house which is being constructed and it's a construction site. Nowhere close to being done. I should have known something was up when he said are you going to do your hair, put on makeup to go to a construction site because he knew -- you didn't have -- yeah, I was going to a construction site so I looked like how I looked so we get there. Do a tour. The kids end up downstairs by our pool and we're upstairs and I'm like we want to do a presentation for you. They like to do skits and stuff so we turned around. Okay, we're ready. I turned back around and all the boys were holding up signs that say, nikki, will you marry us and I was like, oh, my gosh, they've been asking us to get married for two years and awk about it all the time so I'm thinking they just made signs. This is awkward. I turn to look at d., They made some signs and he's down on one knee with the ring and said, will you marry us? And I was like, oh, this is serious. This is a thing, yes, of course. Yes. Look at that picture. That is a beautiful -- I guess he succeeded in surprising you. You look closely, my nails are not done. Maybe I've put on lotion. Maybe I didn't. No one is looking at that. All you can see is the love and pure joy. That is amazing. And on top of that, "being mary jane," what a phenomenal hit. I'm so excited. B.E.T., Tuesday nights, started out as a movie. Such a hit. They've now turned it into a show, and trending, I mean -- last night we were number one trending worldwide and it was overwhelming, the level of support and how much people said they needed it. They needed -- they needed to see themselves reflected accurate, honestly like with a little sex, a little racy and someone who doesn't make all the right decisions. This is on my dvr. The character a news anchor on paper seems to have it all but is bouncing a whole lot and we have a clip. Hopefully can we actually -- can you roll this for us? Funny. People talk about marriage, it's always about the suffering and the sacrifices. I'm not sure why we're all rushing to get there. Well, you see, it's all the little things we often forget about and couldn't live without if they came up missing. Would you marry her all over again? In a heartbeat. Look at you. Smoky, smoldering and you live tweet -- I love that. That's got to mean a lot to people watching the show. I am a tweeter. They want to know what your thoughts are as you're watching so last night at the end, the last two minutes that were very sexy, like mildly putting it, i was like, oh, no, m.J. And like tweeting that and people -- they love it and we also get into our sexy star secret and yours is really impressive. Tell everybody what you do and what you recommend we do. The most important thing about beauty is maintaining it. Don't get into the fixing and repairing. Maintaining, it's all about skin health. The most single most important thing I drink a gallon of water a day. It changed everything in my life. I cut out sugary drink, drink a gallon a day. You will pee a lot but the marked difference that you'll notice en route to the bathroom, hair, skin, nails, absolutely amazing. Also it's all about skin health, spf every day whether or not it's -- even if it's cloudy outside. Moisturize and self-confidence. There's nothing sexier than an educated independent high self-esteem woman who can strut it out even when you're less than -- feeling less than perfect. Amen. Looking good. Thanyou. That's by the way those 53 bottles of water is the equivalent is a week. Or you can get brita and -- yes. Save yourself a little time and money. A, thanks so much for being here. Thanks for sharing your sexy star secrets and congrats on "being mary jane." Check it out, tuesday nights on b.E.T.
