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

Young, Black, and Fabulous

Sanna Lathan & French Montana Do Dinner…Is He Her “Perfect Guy?” + Safaree Samuels & Girlfriend Zashia Stunt For The ‘Gram

 photo sanfre.jpg

What’s this? Sanaa Lathan and French Montana spotted out together…again? Yep, the twosome is fueling dating rumors after being spotted at dinner together. Check out the video and peep flicks of Safaree Samuels and his new chick Zashia Santiago stunting for the ‘gram inside….

Press play....

Yep! That’s Sanaa Lathan and French Montana enjoying a super fancy dinner together recently. Are these two an item? We’re not sure. But, we do know the two seem to enjoy spending time with one another these days.

Remember that eyebrow raising video of Sanaa stretched out on Frenchie a few weeks ago? We’ll blame it on the alcohol, but the Hollywood vet and the NYC rapper do seem like they're warming up to each other.

Last week, the upcoming Perfect Guy star poked fun at the relationship rumors, following that video surfacing (thanks to Diddy). She posted up a photoshooped pic of The Perfect Guy poster with French on the left and Diddy on the right, taking the place of her real co-stars Michael Ealy and Morris Chestnut:

Ha! Maybe chick is just having fun. We'll keep an eye out.

The Perfect Guy hits theaters September 11th.

Speaking of the Coke Boy...

Looks like French is cooking up something big with R&B songstress Mariah Carey and Pop superstar Justin Bieber.

MiMi, French, JB and producer Eric Hudson were spotted at the Record Plant in Hollywood on Thursday. And it appears they trio may be releasing a joint track soon. Both MC and French posted flicks on IG with the caption “coming soon.”

Hmm...no word on where this alleged track will end up, but we're interested in hearing how it turns out.

Elsewhere on the 'gram....

 photo cro20.png

After throwing shade at Meek Mill for his mediocre diss track “Wanna Know,” Nicki Minaj’s ex-fiancée Safaree Samuels is serving up a few hot coupledom shots of himself and his new girlfriend Zashia Santiago.

 photo cro4.png

The new couple was all wrapped up in love as they posed it up for a few sexy flicks. And we can’t lie, they’re kinda hot! We're wondering if it's for a Calvin Klein ad in GQ magazine. Safaree mentions GQ in one of his captions.

In another caption, he writes, "Back to front.... We have 1 back to back ill save for a later time.. @jayflex #hardestpicoftheyear #stuntgang #calvinkleinneedsme #loveyou #rare #shewatchesmyback nothing like the feeling of tackling the world together... the other one"

Not mad. Do you boo.

Chick jetted to Ruschmeyers in Montauk, NY for a relaxing weekend to unwind from her hectic schedule. And it appears she's solo, sans her fiance Lenny Santigao. He was busy snapping flicks at Kevin Hart's "What Now" tour stop in Chi-town last night.

Before hitting the gridiron, the Seahawks QB received a good luck kiss from his queen. Aww…

And look who else was there...

 photo cie1.jpg

Baby Future! While his pops Future has been vocal about not being pleased with “new men” being around his son, CiCi doesn’t seem bothered one bit. She brought little Future out for the football fun and to cheer on his possible "future" step-dad at the  Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton, WA.

 photo cie87.jpg

And it looks like Russell is getting in enough “step-daddy” practice, holding little Future on the sidelines. Too cute.

Later, the Super Bowl champ signed autographs for fans.

Then, he chopped it up with the media about his new contract. Let's talk about that...shall we?
