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

Gorgeous mom, wife and actress Kerry Washington turns 38 tomorrow (Saturday).  So she's got lots to celebrate:  The return of "Scandal", her birthday and the Superbowl.  Oh, and she just hit 1 million followers on Instagram (and she celebrated with an IG message from her and her pup Josie).

Before catching up with Ne-Yo backstage, Kerry chatted up Kimmel in the hot seat and tried not to give away in spoilers.

She also dished on her birthday always falling around the Superbowl:

"There have been a couple years when my birthday was in perfect alignment with the Superbowl and I felt like the whole nation was partying for ME.  You can't tell I'm an only child can you?"

As for what her b-days were like as a kid:

As an only child, my mom always would give me a theme party if I wanted one.  It was important to my mom that I had toys that reflected a bunch of different cultures.  So I had black dolls and brown dolls....and one year I requested Snow White.  My mom was like, 'Ughhh'.

And if she still gets presents from her parents at this age:

"I tend to send something to my parents something....I feel like they did all the work.  I just came out.  And I like to put something inappropriate in the card like 'Thanks for getting it on....'  And if you know my mother, she's like, 'Ughhh'.


What are your thoughts on the "Scandal" winter premiere?
