I'm so proud of my lil cousin/sister.

Wasssssssssssss up fam,


I just wanted to post this video of my cousin from the Nate Berkus Show today. She was able to be interviewed by Nate and had a chance to meet Star Jones. I'm so proud of her. This is one black young lady who is doing her thing. She holds a B.S. in Criminal Justice from the University of South Carolina, a Masters Degree in Public Administration from Marist College, a Master of Divinity Degree from New York Theological Seminary, a preacher at my home…

My interview with Black Pearls Magazine


Ella: Where are you from? How did you start your writing journey?

I am originally from NYC but have resided in NJ for the past 15 years. I began my writing journey as a child with short stories and poetry but it wasn't until I was in my mid-twenties that I published my first poem. It would be another ten years before my first book was published.

Remembering 9/11…..

I just want to pay tribute to the men, women, and children who lost their lives, the brave people who gave their lives, and the Heroes who responded to 9/11. I was in New York City when the World Trade Center was attacked. I will never forget the faces, I will never forget the sound, and I will never forget my friend who lost her life in the Twin Towers.

My wonderful hood family......

I just finished watching what may have been the most emotionally draining memorial service I've ever endured. The one and only Michael Joseph Jackson has gone home to be with our Father. I sat here and cried as I watched and listened to Stevie bellow "Michael, why didn't u staaaaaaaay". I cried and listened as Lady Bernice spoke with such conviction and authority. I even laughed as I cried when Old Barry said Michael sang the song better than Smokie. His big… Continue

Will The Real Men PLEASE Stand Up!!!!!!!!

I was listening to Mr. Moody's Neighborhood (shout out to Moody, Cousin Ed, Naturel, and Tracy for an AMAZING show!!) and I was so intrigued by everything the crew had to say. So I'm pretty much just going to be piggy backing off of some of the things they spoke on. Granted there are some extraordinary men in the world and we have a great amount of them right here in the hood. Regardless of that fact there is a significant amount of men (or so called men I should say) who are not stepping up… Continue

THIEF! Detectives On The Hunt For Lupita Nyong'o STOLEN $150,000 OSCAR DRESS!

 photo LupitaNyongoBehindScenesOscarsnWqqTz4SMsRl_zpsljw7ou7x.jpg

Awww hell!  Somebody has stolen Lupita Nyongo's $150,000 Oscar dress!  Deets inside...

A tragedy occurred at the London West Hollywood hotel in L.A. yesterday.  Remember Lupita Nyong'o's breathtaking pearl-drenched dress handcrafted by Calvin Klein's Women’s Creative Director Costa Francisco she wore to the Academy Awards last weekend?  Well, according to reports, someone jacked her for it!

TMZ reports:

...the dress was taken out of Lupita's room at The London West Hollywood. The dress is made of pearls ... 6,000 white Akoya pearls. It's valued at $150,000.

Our sources say Lupita told cops it was taken from her room sometime between 8 AM and 9 PM Wednesday ... while she was gone.

We're told there is security footage that cops are looking at that could catch the culprit right in the act.

That's a seriously bold move.  Reports say Lupita couldn't file  police report immediately because the dress is not technically hers....it's only hers on loan.  So why was she still in possession of it several days later? It's unclear.  But we've also learned that detectives were on the hotel scene today in the manager's office watching surveillance and security footage to try to catch the thief.

Watch your back Lupita.  And everyone who had access to your room.  We'll keep you posted on the case of the missing Oscar dress....

FLASHBACK: Will Smith Performs "Summertime" On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, HINTS At New Music + "Bedroom" Kandi Burruss & Todd Tucker Having Issues In The Sack? (Preview)

 photo will-smith-jkl.jpg

Will Smith hit up Jimmy Kimmel Live! for a flashback performance of "Summertime".  Watch it inside and check out an "RHOA" preview where Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker discuss their bedroom issues...

"Focus" star Will Smith dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote the new film (in theaters tomorrow) and he also chatted about his former career as a rap superstar.  When asked by Jimmy if he still write rhymes, he said yes.  And he writes them in a "composition" notebook....old school!  He also hinted that he might return to music and there could even be a Jazzy Jeff reunion.

Speaking of old school, he burst into his classic DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince track "Summertime," from 1991.   It's not the first time Will has dipped into his catalogue. He performed "The Theme for The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" on "Graham Norton" a while back. Then there was his rendition of "It Takes Two" on the Tonight Show. Now we have this...


Will Jazzy Jeff and Will Smith reunite in the future?

Is Will returning to music?


In tv previews....


Is "Bedroom Kandi" founder Kandi Burruss having issues in the sack with her husband?  A new preview of "RHOA" seems to suggest so.  From what we gather, Todd is comfortable having sex once a week while Kandi wants it more.   Maybe she can use one of her toys to help the situation?

Kandi convinces Todd to go to marriage counseling to discuss the topic...but not before he gets in a diss.  When talking about sex, Todd says "I'm not Tyson Beckford and you're not Rihanna!"  Kandi took it as a "diss" to her sexiness.  But, we're sure he didn't mean that way. 

So...how much sex should a couple have in a week?  Hmph. 

"RHOA" airs on Bravo, Sundays at 8pm ET.

Young Jeezy THROWS Royal "Coming To America" Themed Party For Daughter’s 1st Birthday – Ludacris, Kandi Burruss, Todd Tucker & Mayor Kasim Reed

Cuteness overload! Young Jeezy apparently has a young daughter (news to us). And over the weekend, he threw a huge royal bash fit for a princess to celebrate her 1st birthday. Peep the party pics of the cutie pie with her pops, along with Ludacris, Kandi Burruss, Todd Tucker, Mayor Kasim Reed, Tameka Raymond’s ex-husband Ryan Glover and more inside….

Awww! How adorable is Young Jeezy’s baby girl? Loving her printed birthday dress and head wrap.

On Sunday, Young Jeezy was in full daddy-mode as he threw a royal “Coming to America” themed birthday bash for his baby girl Amra Nor to celebrate her first birthday.

It seems “Coming to America” themed parties are the new trend. "Real Housewives of Atlanta" stars Kandi Burruss & Todd Tucker’s wedding had a “Coming to America” theme. Alicia Keys threw a “Coming to America” themed bash for her hubby Swizz Beatz, Snoop Dogg’s song Cordell Broadus had one last week and now the Avion don is following suit.

The party came complete with tribal dancers, drummers and rose petals scattered on the floor. The kids also got their faces painted and participated in arts & crafts.

Rapper and friend Ludacris brought his baby girl (not pictured) Cai Bella (after winning primary physical custody recently) to party.

"RHOA" star Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker came out to celebrate.

And what's a princess without her very own septor (and a change of clothes).
