Diana Ross may have initiated the family name, but her children have surely continued its legacy. While the Motown best-selling artist entered the music world in the 1960’s with the Supremes—and later parted ways to embark on her solo career—her five children, Ross, Rhonda, Tracee, Chudney and Evan, have found multiple ways to continue the legend their mother started more than 50 years ago through the realms of television, film, fashion, education and more. 


From Chudney and Rhonda’s top-tier collegiate education and choice careers to match to Evan and Tracee’s life on the big screen and Ross’s adventurous lifestyle celebrated through photography, the Ross coterie has found a way to expand their name’s reach and become a multi-arena conglomerate. When you’re a Ross, you know there ain’t no mountain high enough; now that’s a family business motto to live by.

Family Business: Diana Ross & Her Familial Supremes

In the second installment of our Family Business series, we take a look at the Ross family, headed by Diana.

With Beyoncé at the forefront, the Knowles family has found their way to the top of entertainment’s food chain. As the pop diva has found herself traveling around the world to perform sell-out shows, her father, Matthew Knowles, was helping make all that happen as her manager until 2011. While those two were on the the road, Bey’s mother, Tina, didn’t just sit home alone, she got to the drawing board and designed clothing for her House of Dereon and Miss Tina by Tina Knowles fashion lines. And you can’t forget about Solange! From the bigscreen to the runway, the girl who used to be known as Beyoncé’s little sister is now turning out parties in the U.S. and across the pond as she rocks the 1s and 2s and looked up to as a fashion know-all.


So if you ever thought a family business couldn’t exist, take a note or two from the Knowles’ clan. Now that’s love on top!

For grown women everywhere, Mr. Idris Elba revived that horrible habit of being attracted to bad boys. Elba’s role as the outrageously sexy corner/corner office guy, Stringer Bell, was memorable. Since his untimely departure from the show, Elba has been one busy man. 

Besides DJing and rapping, he’s also gotten behind (well, and in front of) the camera to direct a Mumford and Sons video called “Lover of the Light.” 

As far as acting, Elba has been in numerous movies including controversially (for some folks) playing in "Thor." Elba has won a Golden Globe for his title role in the detective series "Luther" and he was a fan favorite on "The Office."  

Rumor has it that Elba may be the next James Bond on screen.
