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

Beyonce Hits The NYC Streets Solo In Leather, Despite Social Media Reports She Was In Cleveland

Beyonce was feeling nostalgic with her back-in-the-day style Christian Dior clutch purse in NYC yesterday.  Peep the pics inside and why the social media reports of her trekking it to Cleveland to see LeBron's game were likely false...

In a gray leather skirt and plaid button down, Beyonce was spotted leaving her midtown Manhattan office once again.  And, once again, she used her bag to block her middle section:

Interesting.  Since before noon Thursday, folks on Twitter, claiming to be from Cleveland were making claims that Beyonce and Jay Z were spotted roaming the streets in their city in preparation of LeBron's big home-coming game.  No credible receipts were provided, but once she was actually pictured on the streets of NY later Thursday evening, The Carters in Cleveland seemed to be nothing but hopes and dreams.

While plenty of celebs were on hand at the Quicken Loans arena last night, it doesn't seem to us like The Carters were part of that.

Meanwhile, Beyonce is working on the big release of her upcoming TopShop joint adventure.  And keeping it effortlessly fab while doing so.

Tiny SPEAKS Out For The First Time Since PERMANENTLY Changing Her Eye Color, “I Just Wanted To Do Something Different”

 photo tinyeyes.png

For the first time, Tiny Harris is speaking out about undergoing surgery to have her eye-color changed from brown to ice-gray. Find out what she told “Good Morning America” about the procedure and what her husband T.I. thinks inside…

We were shocked to learn reality star Tiny Harris underwent surgery to permanently change the color of her eyes. Last week, the “Tiny & Shekinah’s Weave Trip” star posted a picture to Instagram announcing she had changed her iris color from dark brown to ice-gray and she seemed super excited about it.

During a recent trip to Tunisia, Africa (with hubby T.I. and her eldest daughter Zonnique), Tiny went under the knife for the procedure using BrightOcular which, according to the website, is intraocular implant that is placed in the anterior chamber of the eye to change the appearance of the iris. And the reason she had to travel overseas to have the surgery done is because it’s actually illegal here in the United States!

This morning, Tiny appeared on “GMA” where she explained step-by-step how the procedure was performed and how she felt once the surgical operation was over. She revealed,

"They go into the eye and they make a little slit," Harris explained of the procedure that uses a medical-grade silicone. "They take an implant and it's folded up. They open it [and] spread it over your eye. They told me that the procedure was going to be quick, five to 10 minutes an eye," she said. "They woke me up. It was very blurry, then it kind of fades in."

So what does T.I. think about all this?

"He was like, 'What are you doing?'" Harris said, adding that now her spouse is OK with the change. "He loves them," she said. "He's OK with it as long as I'm healthy and don't have any problems."
 

When asked why she decided to go through with it, she responded,

“I just wanted to do something different. And I have the right to do that. It’s my body.”

Well...it's not the first time she has altered her body in some way.

After she initially posted to Instagram that she had changed her eye color, she deleted the posting soon after. Maybe the social media backlash was too much for her at first.

Now, she seems to be comfortable with it all because she has since uploaded another Instagram post, praising the doctor who performed the surgery AND sharing a promo code for those of you wishing to change the color of your eyes. She also added a note from the team who performed the surgery. It reads:

 

 

I permanently changed my eye color with Brightocular and lovin it‼️ Huge thanks to the incredible doctor(s) for the amazing experience and for making my dream come true ! I hated wearing contacts just for the color and it made my vision blurry! Blessed to say my vision is #perfect after my #ice-gray implants! Special thanks to the #Brightocular staff for ALL that you've done to make this process happen, you're amaZing & thank you to the hospital's staff for your exceptional customer service as well,‼️I would also like to raise awareness about those under privileged living with serious eye conditions called ocular albinism, aniridia, and iris coloboma. Brightocular can help you. For more info everyone GO visit the brightocular.com website; to get the #BEST #DEAL when booking your appointment, mention Promo Code #KM404 and tell them I sent you!!! ✔️ SD Note: Ofcourse any procedure has potential risks but no one has gone blind with brightocular and the success rate has been close to 100%. The media is referring to a story from 2009 and data of side effects from a different shaped and even different colored implant that is currently used in Panama since 2002. Brightocular was launched and patent approved in 2010. We do not recommend using this implant from the doctor in Panama. Brightocular is the only artificial iris implant with the United States patent grooves and channels design to accomplish a successful surgery. For more info on the differences, risks, and benefits of all artificial iris implants used around the world, contact brightocular.

The part that stands out the most: "Of course any procedure has potential risks but no one has gone blind with brightocular and the success rate has been close to 100%."  Please note, there have been no LONG TERM studies conducted to confirm this....LONG TERM.

Anyhoo, check out her full interview here.
