Brandy on Her Best Prom Memory: 'I Just Loved Being Around Kids My Age'

Tamala Jones, Cory Hardrict and more reflect on their special moment.

Published May 18, 2015

It's officially prom season and while the high schoolers are closing that final chapter of childhood, some of our favorite celebs are heading down memory lane, revisiting their best and worst prom moments.

"It was getting dressed and the makeup and the prom dress," Brandy said while remembering her prom with Kobe Bryant. "I just loved being around kids my age... If it were not for Kobe, I would've never gotten the experience."


While B-Rocka had a Cinderella moment at her prom, some other celebs weren't so lucky. Tamala Jones recalled not even being asked and eventually being rejected. "My worst prom memory was that no one wanted to take me to prom," she said. "I was like the biggest nerd ever... I asked this guy, Rodrigo... and he told me no."

On an equally as embarrassing — but not as depressing — note, Brotherly Love star Cory Hardrict had a wardrobe malfunction that will be remembered forever. "My worst moment was dancing with this young lady," he said. "I tried to do a move I couldn't do and my pants ripped, so I had to squeeze it together the whole night."
