I have been single for soooooo long, I don't think I would know how to act if i ever come across a good decent trustworthy man. I'm with Ms. Phillips... Who can you trust? Hard to find a good one. Some women can be very hard to read and understand. Vic versa... It shouldn't be so difficult. I dont even try. Never have... If it happenes it happens. Gotta stay focused on the hear and now. I see some women so focused on looking they overlook the good ones... Men do the same. To busy making a list of what you want and what you NEED has just passed you by...

It's hard being single.....I can say from watching other women....the mistake is on them for not putting themselves first so that they can be the best for their kids.....I hear over and over how women took care of their kids and in the end they end up alone and forgotten..... Women remember, yes your kids are important but you are somebody too and you need to be loved as well.....after they grow up and have their families...you end up alone,...just because you tried to save them from that heartbreak of a mommy's boyfriend....Ladies, its time for you to focus on you (definitly not forgetting about your kids) but really letting them know how much you love them and if he is a good man...they will respect him as long as you both are teaching them the right way...God first, then him as man, then yourself, then your kids...... Without God, none of this will happen....they have to see the respect from him to you and them and he has to be 1 with God to even begin to provide any respect to his family.....accept and be loved....don't throw your life away because of what others (men or women have done to you) Grow and be blessed with your father!!! He will give you your hearts desire....he promised this......

I just wanted to add....I came out of a 5 year relationship thinking everything was great while I was in it......I didn't attend church, I didn't pray often, I gave so much into him all the while he gave so much to everyone else...He didn't do those things either, BIG MISTAKE!!! .I am Glad God showed me the truth even though it hurts so bad...but blessing are coming my way...He keeps telling me and I am making my way through my pain.....It is sad to love someone so much and they can't even say Hi to you.....I do not and wll not put myself down for no one so don't ever think you are not good enough or worthy of anything....If you were not then why would did he get crucified for you....never let anyone tell you your are nothing.....Just only trust in 1the father, because his promise never fails, you might hurt, you might cry, and you will fall on bending knee....but always know that he is the only one you can trust.....in reality, sometimes you can't even trust in your kids so be sure to look to the one who gives you what you have and promises you life....seek and you will find......

“LAHH ATL” Stars Benzino & Althea Allegedly AXED From The Show! + Cassie INJURED After ATV ACCIDENT In Dubai

 photo zinoalthea1.png

“LAHH ATL” has lost two of its stars…Benzino and Althea were given their walkings papers. Meanwhile, Cassie suffered a few injuries after being involved in an accident while riding an ATV. Deets inside….

Looks like the next season of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” will be minus two familiar faces. Hip Hop Weekly’s creator Benzino and his fiancée (possibly wife) Althea have allegedly been fired from the hit VH1 reality series. Why? Well…it seems producers of the show sided with Joseline Hernandez when it came to who had to go after their infamous showdown during the reunion taping.

Sources tell TMZ they were given their pink slips this morning with no explanation.

You’ll recall, “LAHH ATL” stars Joseline Hernandez and Stevie J got into a huge brawl with Benzino and Althea as they taped the last season reunion show. Benzino feels he and Althea are being used as the scapegoats, even though other castmates felt Joseline should be the one fired from the show.

Well…we all knew that wasn’t going to happen. Drama and foolywang=higher ratings. They aren’t getting rid of their cash cow anytime soon.

In other news...

Cassie took a huge spill while riding a four-wheeler in Dubai yesterday. The face of Diddy’s Ciroc Pineapple vodka (and rumored girlfriend) was enjoying a wild ride on the back of an ATV, racing through the Dubai desert when her ATV apparently collided with a huge sand dune causing her to crash.

The “Numb” singer suffered a busted lip and a bruise to her forehead (atop), but seems to be doing ok after the mishap. She posted photos on Instagram of her shattered Ray Ban sunglasses with the caption, “#after & never again because I love my mommy”.

Peep her in action below:

THEN & NOW - Al Sharpton Rveals How He LOST 175LBS WITHOUT Surgery, Says "I Never Get Hungry"

 photo allsjddfdfwfee.png

It hard to miss the physical transformation that Al Sharpton's gone through (175lbs to be exact) and now he's revealing how he did it.  And no...it didn't involve surgery.  More inside...

Al Sharpton lost 175lbs without surgery. 

 photo tumblr_nd6yxuGzbE1r5yh4yo1_400.gif


While we agree with "Hollywood Diva" Countess Vaughn, many folks find it fascinating that Al Sharpton dropped such a massive amount of weight without any "surg."

During a new profile with the NY Daily News, the good Reverend opens up about his dramatic weight lost and how he keeps it all off.  Why should you care?  Because the "Al Sharpton Diet" helped him drop from 305 pounds to exactly 129.6 pounds! Here are the highlights:

On the moment he knew he had to make a change:  “I could take all the cartoons in the tabloid newspapers, but I couldn’t take my daughter punching me in the belly and asking why I was so fat. That was my inspiration to lose the weight. And probably the last time anyone hurt my feelings.”

How He did It: 6 years ago, Rev. Al cut out red meat. A year later, he cut out chicken. Now - he gets by on a single lunchtime salad (with one perk: a chopped egg). and green juice, a banana and three slices of plain whole wheat toast for breakfast. “I was absolutely content just doing the salad. As a kid who grew up chubby, I just marveled at the fact that I could be thin.” And....he no longer eats after 6pm.

On his mentor James Brown: “Manhood, discipline, regiment, I learned all that from James Brown. I think a lot about how he would react if he saw my weight now. He would probably say I’ve learned how to master myself. He used to tell me, ’You can’t master situations until you master yourself.’

On keeping off the weight:  “I’m conditioned now so that I never get hungry.  

Further motivation:  Al was stabbed in 1991 before a protest about the death of a black teenager. The knife nearly punctured a lung and might have killed him if he weren't fat. He now says, The irony hasn’t missed me, put it that way...But I’m never going to be fat — never again. I’m going to make it easy on my pallbearers.”


Whole wheat toast, 3 slices = 300 calories (15 g of protein)
Doctor Earth green juice from Juice Press, 2 bottles = 360 calories (4 g of protein)
Salad with egg and balsamic vinaigrette = 240 calories (6g of protein)
Banana = 100 calories (1g of protein)
Total = 1,000 calories and 26g protein. For a man of his age and weight, 2,000 calories and 56g protein are reportedly typical.

SPEAK ON IT: The FALLOUT From Charles Barkley's "Unintelligent" Black People Comment

 photo CharlesBarkleyStateFarmStarSaturdayNightwclQgC2woYBl.jpg

Charles Barkley has put his foot in his mouth with some highly generalized comments about the Black community and #BlackTwitter unleashed on him! Speak On It inside....


This week, Charles Barkley made an appearance on Afternoons with Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis, where he "perhaps" overacted to an unconfirmed report that claimed teammates/fans of Seattle Seahawks player Russell Wilson don’t think he’s black enough (sidebar: Richard Sherman told CBS Sports that this is completely fabricated).  Supposedly, one of Richard's teammates gave this as the reason for a locker room fight that lead to said teammate getting traded.

Whether the report was true or not, Charles comments were very much classic BARKley. He went on a rant that can be summed up by saying its hard for Blacks to get ahead because of “crap in your life from other black people.”

“We as black people are never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you are black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people,”

“For some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don’t break the law, you’re not a good black person. It’s a dirty, dark secret in the black community.

“There are a lot of black people who are unintelligent, who don’t have success. It’s best to knock a successful black person down because they’re intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school, and they’re successful. It’s just typical BS that goes on when you’re black, man.”

Reaction on #BlackTwitter were swift......and mixed. Some agreed...others didn't.
