Chris Bosh’s wife to open female friendly spot

Adrienne Bosh is proud of her newest baby; one that is not related (by blood) to her NBA star hubby, Chris Bosh.

The mother of two is set to open a retail boutique and event venue this spring at 1665 Alton Road in Miami Beach. According to a release, Sparkle and Shine Darling “welcomes women of all ages and interests to shop, have fun and be inspired.”

Bosh hopes this femme haven can be more than a shopping spot or party space. “It’s a place where women can get together to celebrate their friendship and special occasions, a place of community, positivity and support,” she says, adding she came up with the idea after a fabulous trip to Paris with some girlfriends.

The in-store café will offer treats from local bakeries, as well as coffee, tea, champagne and wine.

A website, sparkleandshinedarling.com, is set to expand in the coming weeks. View updates on Instagram (@SparkleandShineDarling) and Twitter (@SparkleDecorMia).

OUT OF THE TANK

Last weekend, Barbara Corcoran took a break from hanging with the ruthless crew over at Shark Tank for a little R&R. The real estate titan and investment whiz, 65, enjoyed some sunshine and downtime with her kids at Kimpton’s Surfcomber, Miami Beach. Nope, no business deals were made during this trip.

FEEL THE BURN

Gabrielle Anwar is taking an unconventional approach to her Valentine’s Day celebration this year. She wants to spread the pain. On Saturday, the former Burn Notice beauty will play celebrity guest instructor for a one-time-only class at Miami Beach wellness facility Anatomy at 1220. The class is open to non-members and starts promptly at 11:30 a.m. Be prepared for loud, rap beats. To attend, email rsvp@anatomyat1220.com. Space is limited.

BECAUSE I’M HAPPY

Dwyane Wade’s work ethic must have rubbed off on his wife. She recently told the AP that she used to be lazy.

“You get complacent, and when the checks are coming in it’s like, ‘Eh, maybe I'll get to challenge myself next week’” said the Miami-based actress. “The next thing you know years have gone by and you’ve not really done anything that feeds your soul.”

All that’s changed now. Starring in BET’s Being Mary Jane as a broadcaster with a lousy love life, is meaty and challenging. “I’ve never been this gratified with my work,” she added.

Caveat: Union said some of the racier scenes can get awkward when she’s watching the show with Wade.
