Adrienne Eliza Houghton Looks Hot in New Photo Shoot
Adrienne Eliza Houghton was born in October 24, 1983, is an American actress, singer, and television host. She is a former member of the girl groups 3LW and The Cheetah Girls. Since 2013, Bailon has been a co-host of the daytime talk show The Real.
As an actress, Bailon appeared in The Cheetah Girls films, Coach Carter and All You’ve Got. She has guest starred in numerous television series including That’s So Raven and The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. In 2013, Bailon became the first Latina host of a daytime talk show in the US. She also competed in The Masked Singer in 2019 as the Flamingo, finishing in third place.
Bailon was born to a Puerto Rican mother, Nilda Alicea and an Ecuadorian father, Freddie Bailón, on October 24, 1983. She grew up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Bailon has an older sister, Claudette. Bailon’s parents are divorced, and she was raised by her mother and stepfather, Joe Felix. She attended PS 110-The Monitor in Brooklyn and the High School for Health Professions and Human Services, but did not pursue a career in the medical field because of her musical endeavors. Bailon commented “I really wanted to be an Obstetrician! I wanted to bring babies into the world…” Bailon was discovered by Latin pop singer Ricky Martin in October 1999 while she was performing in a church choir at Madison Square Garden. Martin asked for the four best singers in the group, and Bailon was one of the four elected by Martin to perform as back-up singers as part of his Livin’ la Vida Loca Tour concert show later that night.
Following the performance, Bailon became a member of the girl group 3LW. Bailon stated that she was spotted by a producer while on a field trip to Beth Israel, and was later offered a slot in the female trio. Bailon said “… coming from very humble beginnings in the projects of the Lower East Side and not having any “Hollywood” connections…. It did not seem realistic. I sang in church, acted in all the church and school plays…. So when the opportunity came to join a girl group I was ready!”
The group was signed to Epic Records. Kiely Williams and Naturi Naughton were the other two members of the group, and work on their debut album began in 1999. In 1999, the original line-up of 3LW formed. Their first single, “No More (Baby I’ma Do Right)”, was released in the fall of 2000. “No More” was a chart success, and was followed by “Playas Gon’ Play” in early 2001. The group’s self-titled debut album, 3LW was released on November 14, 2000. The album went on to be certified platinum by the RIAA, selling 1.3 million copies in the United States.
In the summer of 2001, the group embarked on the MTV Total Request Live tour along with Destiny’s Child, Dream, Nelly, Eve, and Jessica Simpson. In 2001, 3LW recorded a song with various artists including Michael Jackson, Usher, Beyoncé, Luther Vandross, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey in response to the 9/11 attacks called “What More Can I Give”. In late 2001, they collaborated with Lil’ Romeo and Nick Cannon for “Parents Just Don’t Understand” on the Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius soundtrack.
3LW spent the first half of 2002 in the studio, recording an album tentatively titled Same Game, Different Rules. The album and its intended lead single “Uh Oh” were presented to the label, who felt it did not have enough urban radio appeal. The tracks from Same Game, Different Rules were leaked to the Internet in MP3 format, and Epic considered dropping the girls. A fan support campaign for 3LW, named “Never Let Go of 3LW” after their song “Never Let Go” spread to the radio, and the act was retained, despite the album loss. Recording a new set of tracks, the group returned in the summer of 2002 with the P. Diddy-produced single “I Do (Wanna Get Close To You)”, featuring Loon. That same summer, the group performed a concert special on Nickelodeon titled Live on Sunset. By August, the group was set to release its newest LP, A Girl Can Mack, when member Naughton left the group for good after heated arguments. A Girl Can Mack’s release date was pushed back a month, but sales were still disappointing debuting at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 with a disappointing 53,000 copies sold in the first week. Approaching the time that the group was ready to deliver their second album, Naturi Naughton announced that she was no longer a member of the group. Naughton alleged she had had a number of conflicts and arguments with Bailon, Williams, and their management, which led to a heated argument in August 2002 involving an altercation. Not long after, Naughton claimed she had been forced out of the group.
On January 26, 2015, Bailon announced on The Real the reason why she had not released her debut solo album at that point. She stated that she was “scared to fail” and that she did not like the sound of her own voice because executives at Disney praised the fact that she sounded “so young”. Bailon expressed that when she got her solo record deal at Def Jam, things didn’t go the way she expected.
Bailon is an Evangelical. When asked “Do you relate with I’m in Love with a Church Girl and not get involve with the sins and craziness that Hollywood is all about?”, she replied, “I think I’ve definitely tried. No one is left without a sin. Everyone sin in their own different ways. Never judge one person’s sins to be greater and lesser than your own. One thing I’m so grateful for was my foundation in faith. It kept me away from a lot of things like drugs that I never had an interest. I always had my faith in God. My relationship with God helped me to get along not to get caught up in those things.
Bailon dated Rob Kardashian, from 2007 until 2009, after which it was revealed that they broke up because he cheated on her. On February 5, 2015, Bailon announced via Instagram and on an episode of The Real, that she was engaged to her boyfriend of six years, music executive at Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label, Lenny Santiago. In September 2015, the couple split and they called off their engagement.
Bailon got engaged to musician Israel Houghton on August 12, 2016 in Paris after six months of dating. They were married in Paris on November 11, 2016. Bailon became the step-mother to Israel’s four children from his first marriage.
