Echo Lawrence - August 13, 2020

Rebecca Gayheart is someone I didn’t have that much respect for after she flattened that 9 year old boy while driving Marco Leonardi’s car back in 2001. The kid died and Rebecca was charged with vehicular manslaughter and pled no contest to the charges, she paid the kids parents $10K and never went to jail. So I kinda hated her because of that shitty energy around her, but I did love her in Jawbreaker!

Anyway Rebecca got her start when she won a modelling contest that brought her to New York City when she was 17, while there she met Brett Ratner, who at the time was a student at NYU. The pair fell in love at first sight and stayed together for 13 years, during the relationship she went on the become the Noxzema girl and Brett went on to be Brett. She then ended up with actor Eric Dane, who plays the freaky dad in Euphoria by the way, and had some kids. And before you say anything bad about Brett, the man gave us Rush Hour, have some respect for the name.

It was Rebecca’s birthday yesterday and I guess Brett was feeling emotional, so he posted a ton of never before seen shots of Rebecca from the last few decades. The photos are super nostalgic and it’s fun to see what the world used to be like, where you could sit on Russell Simmons lap at a party or get vacation braids without being cancelled. Here are some of the best photos posted including Becky chilling with Beyonce, Uma Thurman, the late Robert Evans and P.Diddy’s now dead ex wife Kim Porter. Enjoy the throwback, it’s thursday after all.
