We had a great Thanksgiving Day. In the morning, we watched the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. How could we be in NYC and not go to the parade Then we had Thanksgiving dinner with Erin Dilly, who plays my mother in the show, and her family at their home. It was a wonderful time.

Photos: Adrienne Bailon Goes Pantless on Red Carpet, Has Major Wardrobe Malfunction

Rob Kardashian's ex-girlfriend Adrienne Bailon has turned heads at a red carpet event over the outrageous dress she was wearing. On Thursday night, March 1, the 28-year-old starlet was caught on camera rocking a very revealing black sheer dress without donning an underwear.

The "Coach Carter" star was attending the Escape to Total Rewards gala at Gotham Hall, New York when she stole the attention with her sultry outfit. She was spotted turning around to show off the back of her transparent dress that was adorned with a flower pattern, which barely covered her buttocks.

At one point, Adrienne was seen posing for the cameramen when the cream ruffle on the front of her dress was accidentally blown away to the side, uncovering her most intimate body part.

Thanksgiving parade: Who's thankful for lip-syncing?

Thanksgiving parade: Who's thankful for lip-syncing?
Happy Turkey Day, PopWatchers! This year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade had a few new balloons, a revamped Santa float, and more NBC promos and placements than I can wrap my head around. Highlights Broadway! I'm a sucker for a show tune, and it was kind of nuts to see Hair being performed outside Macy's. My conflicting cultural institutions, let me show you them! John Stamos' Bye Bye Birdie performance, while, yeah, horribly lip-synced, was still charismatic and cute, and Billy Elliot and Shrek were completely serviceable. Fun times. Cream-colored coats Jane Krakowski, Andrea Bocelli, Katharine McPhee -- you heard it here first,

The Cheetah Girls Hint on Future Break Up

Rumor has it, The Cheetah Girls may split. Noting that "The Cheetah Girls: One World" tour will be the band's last show, Kiely Williams, one of the Cheetah Girls' members, told In Touch Weekly as quoted by 4tnz!, "We always knew that this tour would probably be our last."

Furthermore, Kiely revealed that the break-up decision is resulted from the negative publications surrounding them in the media lately. "We were excited about going out on a high note, it's sad that this negative attention [Adrienne Bailon's nude photos] put a damper on that," she said.

Previously, The Cheetah Girls were dropped from the performers line-up of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 27. "The girls were scheduled to be in the parade and perform, but after Adrienne's recent photo incident, organizers didn't think it would be appropriate to have her at a family-oriented event," a source told Perez Hilton.
