*”The Game” star Wendy Raquel Robinson will be hosting the AT&T Nation’s Football Classic at Howard University on September 6.
“I am honored to return as one of the hosts of the AT&T Kickoff Rally, and I think it’s wonderful that AT&T continues to support HBCUs and education. I am pulling for Howard to get that three-peat this year,” the Howard University alum says.
The faceoff between longtime rivals Howard U and Morehouse will jump-start the weekend event. Representing Howard’s rival Morehouse will be hip hop’s “Mr. Manners,” Fonzworth Bentley, an alum of the Atlanta-based HCBU.
The two were photographed last weekend during Ron Perelman’s Apollo in the Hamptons benefit. The pair has known each other since Holmes’ days with Tom Cruise and were seen dancing together onstage along with former Secretary of State Colin Powell at Perelman’s East Hampton bash on Saturday night.
But Holmes’ rep, Leslie Sloane, tells us: “They’re not dating. They’ve been friends for years.” Holmes just wrapped filming on her new movie “Miss Meadows” in Cleveland.
