I am happy that Chris Brown took the time to do this, and I’m glad he did not blame anyone, except himself. Some people will find something negative to say about his apology, but it seems like he’s trying to make a step in the right direction. What happened that night was wrong, and that’s not debatable, and I do feel their is more to learn from this situation from a role model perspective. I am not an advocate of throw the book at him, and I am not advocate of attacking the victim, either. For whatever reasons, publicity or sincereity, this needed to be said. I’m not on Chris Brown’s side, and I’m not on Rihanna’s side, I am on the side of all the fans who felt let down in the way this situation was handled.
I would hate to stand next to Beyonce for any extended length of time. She is looks amazing, while doing simple charity work. In case you didn’t know: Beyonce Knowles has joined hands with Hamburger Helper and Feeding America (one of the nation’s largest food non-profit organization dedicated to ending hunger). There goal is provide over 3.5 million meals to local food banks to battle hunger in America.

We give Lil Kim a hard time with nick names like Kim Lee because she seems to be turning into a lighter looking Asian woman, and we did the same thing with Michael Jackson, but why is it alright for people to tan to the point of no recognition. I thought this was Thandie Newton with a tan, but it’s Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice).

SMH, when couples match! Christina Milan and her fiance The Dream, decided to color coordinate their outfits in “coral”, and confirm their engagement. All I can say is that this must be love, to wear a coral jacket to match your woman.

First, I like to give special thanks to Cotten Kandi. I was out of town this weekend enjoying my family reunion in St. Louis, MO and during my absence she made sure the site was updated. Please check out her blog, and show her some love.
Honestly, I am concerned about Angela Simmons. I’ve seen these pictures circulating, and people made comments like, “she’s just dieting,” or “she’s still dieting.” I think we have gone passed a step pass dieting into an area of concern.
Hollywood is hard and you have to fight everyday to love your curves. So many young women are falling victim to eating disorders and plastic surgery to fix things that aren’t broken, because the industry set standards that are unrealistic. I love the Simmons family, and from watching Angela Simmons on Run’s House, I really thought she was unique and had a strong sense of self, and I do not want her to fall into the trap. So I hope everything is alright, and that Reverend Run is staying on top his daughters, even if they are grown, because the industry is just not nice.

Born June 6, 1896, the world’s oldest man, 113-year-old World War I veteran Henry Allingham, died Saturday after spending his final years reminding Britain about the 9 million soldiers killed during the conflict.
Allingham was the last surviving original member of the Royal Air Force, which was formed in 1918. He made it a personal crusade to talk about a conflict that wiped out much of a generation. Though nearly blind, he would take the outstretched hands of visitors in both of his, gaze into the eyes of children, veterans and journalists and deliver a message he wanted them all to remember.
“I want everyone to know,” he told The Associated Press during an interview in November. “They died for us.”
Life is a beautiful thing and I often think about living life to the fullest but would you want to live this long? Idk, Just something to think about.
According to fellow blogger Freddy O, Frankie and TLC’s Chilli almost had it out after Frankie got wasted!
The altercation took place at Ryan’s Anniversary party 2 weeks ago and was really just a misunderstanding. Frankie wanted to take a picture with Chili cause she’s her biggest fan.
All I am going to say is Frankie had too many drinks and her alter-ego took over. Chili who was doing an interview at the time was caught by surprise when Frankie ran over to give her a hug. Frankie didn’t like Chili’s return hug.
Chili then walked to where Yung Joc was standing not thinking anything of it and started conversing with him. Out of nowhere, here comes Frankie leaping on top of me trying to get Chili and pushing everyone out of the way in the process.
“You think you better than me,” ” You think you better than me” again Frankie shouted to Chili. Remember, by this time Frankie was officially lit! Chili asked if she was ok and then Frankie tries to grab her again. Chili pushed her hand away and stating “Are you serious?”
Frankie then yelled “my daughter is better than you any way.”
This has got to be embarrassing for Keyshia! I mean, great that she helped her mother get on her feet and off drugs, but can you not bring unnecessary attention to yourself Frankie!
