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......

"Law & Order: SVU" Episode Set To MIMIC Ray Rice, Solange And Jay Z Elevator Scandals (AND Donald Sterling Drama!) + Nicki Minaj HOSTING The 2014 MTV Europe Awards

This week's episode of "Law & Order: SVU" pulls a triple, tackling the Ray Rice, Donald Sterling and Jay Z/Solange elevator scandals. Watch the trailer inside and get the deets on Nicki Minaj's 2014 MTV Europe Awards hosting gig.


The writers at "Law & Order: SVU" are so messy!  And we love it.  Last year, they ripped the Chris Brown/Rihanna saga from the headlines and turned it into a trashy episode and now Ray Rice, Donald Sterling, Jay Z and Solange all get their turn at bat, in ONE episode!

Airing Wednesday (on NBC, 8pmCT), the "American Disgrace" episode stars fictional NBA player Shakir “The Shark” Wilkins--plyed by Henry Simmons-- who is accused of rape by a PR employee from his clothing line. The ish jumps off after a shocking elevator scene, captured via security cam, and goes public via the "LMZ" gossip site.  There's no audio and only raw camera footage. Sound familiar?


Here's the trailer:


We saw how that Chris Brown/Rihanna episode went so....


In music news...

“So excited to announce that I will not only perform, but I have the honorable task of HOSTING this year’s MTV European Music Awards!!!!!!! AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!”

Nicki is nominated in four categories including Best Female, Best Hip-Hop, Best Look, and Biggest Fans at the 20th annual show.  The show will air live from Glasgow, Scotland on November 9.  Her their album, The PinkPrint will hit stores on November 24th.

22-year-old reality star EJ Johnson is on his way to slim and trim fabulousness.  Find out what he said about his weight loss surgery inside...

"#RichKidsOfBeverlyHills" star and NYU student EJ Johnson, the son of Magic Johnson, revealed on the recent season finale of the show that he was ready to undergo surgery to jumpstart a new lifestyle.  He told his fellow rich kids that he would be getting gastric sleeve surgery.  And this past August, he went through with it.

We're already seeing a bit of a difference just one month later, compared to the above promo pic from several months ago.  Here's a few more pics of Chanel lover EJ making appearances since his surgery:

EJ told his crew he's ready to take the challenge head on...after he throws one last party of the summer: A Soul Food Dinner Night!

He was seen telling his little sister (above), Elisa, that he's thinking about doing a weight loss surgery similar to what co-star Jonny Drubel did with his lap band. And it wasn't really known Jonny had a lap band surgery.  Slight shade.

EJ said he met up with Star Jones and chatted about it all.  She told him, "A lot of people think it's the easy way out, but it's not. It's a step in the right direction, just a big push."

He told his friends, "I feel very mature and in the right placeI'm ready to be cute."

Daily Mail reports that he received the surgery in August right after the final episode was taped.  And the diva is well on his way to a new lifestyle.

OOPS! Tyler Perry Accidentally REVEALS The Sex Of His Baby, Talks New Movie Role In ‘Gone Girl’ On “TODAY”

 photo tperry.jpg

Tyler Perry slipped up and revealed the gender of his baby on the way with girlfriend Gelila Bekele. Plus, he hit up the “TODAY” show to dish on his upcoming role in the drama thriller Gone Girl. More inside…

Tyler Perry is on the promo circuit to promote his new film Gone Girl, where he plays a powerful defense attorney. And during a recent interview with “EXTRA”, Tyler (above at the film’s NYC premiere) accidently confirmed the sex of his baby on the way with his on-again off-again girlfriend Gelila Bekele.

Since confirming he’s about to become a new dad, the director/screenwriter sat down with “EXTRA” correspondent Jerry Panacoli, alongside his co-stars Neil Patrick Harris and Kim Dickens, to talk about his new role in life…becoming a father. And while talking about his bundle of joy, he revealed that he’s having a boy!

When asked what type of dad he plans to be to his unborn, Tyler responded,

“The greatest gift I’m being given right now is the opportunity to give the little boy in me everything I never had, so that’s what I’m excited about. This beautiful human being that God has allowed to come into my life for me to get to know, because they come with their own personalities, who they are, to shepherd and usher him…”

Oops! He then said, “I said 'him.” And continued, “into whatever the child is supposed to be is what I’m going to do.”

Peep his slip-up below: 

And this morning...


Tyler Perry appeared on NBC News’ “TODAY” show with Tamron Hall to dish on his role in the film adaptation of the novel Gone Girl. He chatted about taking the role as defense attorney Tanner Booker, continuing acting even after success as a director and anxiety about being in the delivery room.

Here are the highlights:

Tyler Perry on if he took on the role of Tanner Booker based on the popularity of the book, “Gone Girl”:
“No, not at all, and had I been I probably would have passed on it. I didn’t want to step into this huge expectation of, ‘You’ve got to do it this way and the book says to do it this way’…I think everybody who read the book is going to be very, very happy.”

Perry on what tempts him to keep acting even though he is hugely successful as a director:
“It’s a part of me expressing all sides of the artist of myself. Every part of me has a bit that wants to work and do some of those things.”

Perry, an expectant father, on if he’ll be going to Lamaze classes:
“Lamaze is okay but delivery room, I don’t know. Pray for me on that.”

Ha! Check the interview above.

Gone Girl hits theaters October 3rd.  We are SO here for it.
