“It’s all about getting that sexy look,” comedian Bill Bellamy shares as he workouts. The actor, comedian and producer who gained fame for helping to coin the phrase “Booty Call.” Described as a late-night call to a potential mate with the intention of meeting up strictly for sex, the phrase caught fire and was used everywhere in the early 90’s.
For many years, Bellamy was a staple on MTV, a VJ and the host of several MTV programs including MTV Jamz and MTV Beach House. He went on to star in a number of movies, including Fled, Love Jones, The Brothers, How to Be a Player, Getting Played and Any Given Sunday. He also appeared on two episodes of the TV show Kenan and Kel. Additionally, he voiced Skeeter on the Nickelodeon television show Cousin Skeeter.
“I think it go serious in college when I found out I really enjoyed making people laugh,” admits Bellamy. “It makes me happy. I said, I wanna be a comedian, I wanna get good.’ You’re not good in the beginning. You’re still trying to figure out what the things are that you are going to talk about, what your angle is going to be and there’s a lot of trial and error. I just never gave up and that was the beginning of my career. Just experimenting, trying it out and falling in love with it.
Fast forward to now, Bill is married with kids and admits that he can’t always say the things he wants to say–especially around his kids, since they mimic everything.
“I’m blessed to have a son and a daughter, Bellamy shares. “I like to call them AM and FM. With a boy and a girl, they are wired so differently; two different complete styles of people.”
Bellamy notes that his daughter, Bailey, is emotional, sensitive, talented and delightfully energetic, but delicate. Bellamy lovingly says, “She’s very delicate, so you have to talk to her in a certain way and encourage her in a certain way.”
When it comes to his son, Baron, Bellamy also describes him as sensitive, but with a different energy about him.
Bellamy shares, “Becoming a dad was the best thing that ever happened to me in my life. It gave me a sense of responsibility, love and accomplishment. Good or bad, they mimic everything you do. It’s been an amazing journey learning these two little new human children.”
Bill has kept his signature slim look for years and at the age of 40+, it seems as though Bill has the formula for staying fit and having fun while doing it.
Core Strengthening Exercises
“I like to do core strength exercises, not heavy weights,” explains Bill. “I’m not trying to be a bodybuilder. I just want to be a fit person.” Here’s a few examples:
