Holly Robinson Peete: What’s In My Bag? (Exclusive)

Holly Robinson Peete carries all of the essentials in her Hermès bag, including hot sauce.

“I go nowhere without my hot sauce,” Robinson Peete, 59, exclusively told Us Weekly. “Beyoncé taught me that.”

Referencing Beyoncé’s lyric from her 2016 song “Formation” — “Earned all this money but they never take the country out me / I got a hot sauce in my bag, swag” — the 21 Jump Street alum proudly pulled out a mini hot sauce bottle from her Clemence Evelyne Hermès purse.

“I like [the bag] because it has an ‘H,’ you know, for Holly. [It’s] from, like, several seasons ago, and I bought it when I was in Portofino. I just love this bag,” Robinson Peete told Us. “I enjoy my big purchases and I keep the same bag for years. I don’t go back and get the next one because I’m too practical. I’ve got too many damn kids.”

“Of course I have my Gemtesa because I take it every day. It’s for my OAB symptoms. I love it,” she said before giving the bottle a kiss. “I just kissed it and said I loved it. I kissed my Gemtesa.”

Christmas Cards

“Don’t mind if I do, but I travel with some of my Christmas cards,” Robinson Peete told Us while pulling out a 2008 card from her wallet. “My one Martha Stewart moment of the year is my Christmas cards. I could probably put a more recent one in, but this is how I think of my kids.”
