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.

REST IN PEACE

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT ONE BEING TOUCHED A WORLD OF MANY?

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

Drake Hits The Field At H.A.W. Celebrity Softball Game + Pharrell, Chris Brown, Quincy Brown, Chanel Iman, A$AP Rocky & More Attend 'Dope' Screening In Cannes

 photo haw8.png

Drake hosted a celebrity softball game for Houston Appreciation Weekend yesterday to benefit the Astros Urban Youth Academy. Across the pond, Pharrell, Chris Brown, Quincy Brown, Chanel Iman, A$AP Rocky and more attended the DOPE screening at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. More inside….

Drake jetted to Houston to host his second annual Houston Appreciation Weekend (H.A.W.) to show love to the city where it started. Drizzy hit the field for a celebrity softball game with the Houston Astros at the University of Houston Cougar Field to benefit the Astros Urban Youth Academy. This is just one of many events coming to the area because the Young Money rapper has a host of events (concerts, parties) lined up for the city this Memorial Day Weekend.

Houston holds a special place in the Grammy Award winning artist’s heart as H-Town is the place where he started building his rap empire with the help of UGK rapper Bun B.

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. left his football gear behind to ball out on the baseball field.

Christina Milian's ex-fiance and Houston-based Rap-a-Lot Records CEO Jas Prince showed his support.

After hosting an event Thursday evening to honor Bun B, Drizzy grabbed his #24 baseball jersey and baseball glove for some fun in the outfield yesterday.

R&B crooner Ne-Yo also came out to support. Fun times.

Meanwhile, across the pond....

Chris Brown hit up the DOPE screening at the Cannes Film Festival to support his homie Quincy Brown, who stars in the coming-of-age comedy.

After attending the DOPE photocall on the beach a day earlier, executive producer Pharrell Williams, stars Zoe Karvitz and A$AP Rocky came out for the screening. The trio stopped to snap a selfie for the ‘gram.

Then, Zoe and the guys posed it up with DOPE actress Kiersey Clemons.

Ex-lovers Chanel Iman and A$AP Rocky (still keeping a comfortable distance) were also at the screening yesterday. They snapped it up with DOPE actors Shameik Moore and Tony Revolori.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2015: Amber Rose Gets On Her Hosting Duties + Malika & Khadijah Haqq Party It Up With Khloe Kardashian In Vegas

 photo amv2.jpg

Amber Rose is kicking off her Memorial Day Weekend hosting parties in Las Vegas. And she’s not the only one partying it up in Sin City. Twin sisters Malika & Khadijah Haqq had a night out on the town with their friend Khloe Kardashian. Peep the pics inside…

Memorial Day Weekend is here! And the turn up has commenced in Las Vegas.

Yesterday, Amber Rose hosted a pool party in a white hip hugging bodycon with her lady lumps on display at the Palms Pool and Dayclub inside the Palms Casino Resort.

It just so happens the pool party she was tapped to host went down at the same hotel her estranged husband Wiz Khalifa is residing and where she is staying as well. And it appears he isn’t excited about it. Reportedly, Wiz asked the hotel to make sure his suite was NOT on the same floor as Amber’s. Hmph.

But, as you can see, Amber doesn’t seem bothered. She’s there to collect her coins.
 

After the pool party....

The Sister Code actress slipped into a sexy LBD to host at Chateau Nightclub and Rooftop at held at Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino. Meanwhile, Wiz flexed his spinning skills making his debut as DJ Daddy Kat at Rain Nightclub inside Palms Las Vegas last night.
 

Elsewhere....

Twins Malika and Khadijah Haqq kicked off their Memorial Day Weekend with their bestie Khole Kardashian at 1 OAK inside the Mirage Hotel and Casino Las Vegas. We hope Khloe and Amber don’t cross paths after their epic Twitter spat. Amber recently said she doesn't have any beef with Khloe, but you know how things can turn ugly once the liquor starts flowing.

Malika suffered a huge lost last week after her rumored boyfriend Chinx Drugz (who happened to be married) was shot and killed in Queens. She caught a lot of backlash after posting a tribute to Chinx on Instagram recently. Maybe she’s on the party scene to help block out the negativity and to keep her mind off of the tragedy.

Along with starring on their Kardashian spin-off “Dash Dolls,” the Haqq twins are gearing up to start filming on the set of a new film. The twins told TheYBF.com they will begin production for ATL 2 this August.  Get ready.

BABIES & BUMPS: Kimora Lee Simmons & Husband Tim Leissner Take Baby Wolfe Lee For A Stroll In Beverly Hills + Evan Ross & Pregnant Ashlee Simpson Go On A Lunch Date

 photo KimoraLeeSimmonsTimLeissnerOutStrollhFah3BiFTb0l.jpg

Kimora Lee Simmons was spotted out and about for the first time since giving birth, strolling down Beverly Hills with her newborn baby boy Wolfe Lee Leissner, her husband Tim Leissner and their dog. Meanwhile, Evan Ross and his pregnant wife Ashlee Simpson were spotted bumping along on a lunch date. Peep the babies and bumps inside….

Kimora Lee Simmons was spotted out and about for the first time with her almost 2-month old son Wolfe Lee Leissner with husband Tim Leissner yesterday.

The twosome pushed baby Wolfe Lee in his stroller as they cruised down Beverly Hills for a little retail therapy and quality time with their new family unit.

Kimora is the now the proud mom of four beautiful children. Baby Wolfe joins big sisters Ming Lee & Aoki Lee (with Russell Simmons) and big brother Kenzo Lee (with Djimon Hounsou).

The fashion designer recently announced she would be stepping away from her gig at JustFab.com to focus on her high-end KLS line and her charitable works. Her first KLS store is set to open on Beverly Drive in about four weeks, so she was likely checking out things to make sure everything is running according to schedule.

Another couple on the move....

Evan Ross and his very pregnant wife Ashlee Simpson were seen bumping along for an afternoon lunch date yesterday.

The lovebirds were spotted making their way to Casa Vega to chow down on some Mexican eats, likely satisfying a craving of Ashlee’s.

When Evan isn’t spending time with his pregnant wife and gearing up to be a first time dad, he has been busy putting the finishing touches on his debut album.

As he readies his new LP, he recently released the remix to his track “How To Live Again” featuring T.I. He will also join his ATL cast mates to begin filming the sequel in August.

Not only that, he will also be kicking off a residency in L.A. on Memorial Day. Nice!
