Kevin Hart is featured in the February issue of Upscale magazine. Mr. Hart sits down for an interview to discuss his ex-wife, Torrei Hart and his current love interest of four years, Enikko Parrish. He also discusses the backlash he receives from black women regarding his girlfriend Enikko Parrish, and leaving his ex-wife.
Kevin Hart wants to clear the air on why he left his marriage, and although I think I know what he’s trying to see, he somehow manages to not say it so well:
I read so much stuff that Black women say, especially about my relationship. ‘Oh, he left his Black wife to go be with some exotic chick.’ First of all, my girl is Black. She’s Jamaican. But they say it as if they know what me and my ex-wife’s problems were. When we first got together, our relationship was amazing. We got married young and our s*** got rocky. In my divorce, I stood up and said to my ex-wife, ‘Hey, I messed up. This had nothing to do with you. I didn’t understand what marriage was. I cheated. I was wrong. We couldn’t fix it, it got worse. I stepped away because I didn’t want it to get any worse. You’re the mother of my kids, I don’t want to hate you. And the only way that’s gonna happen, is if I’m the bigger man and I leave.’ I think that was a very mature thing to do.
Yea, I’m thinking a bigger man would have stayed faithful to his wife and vows, and saved his marriage. *shrugs* Other than that, I think I get his point; knowing when to leave before destroying the other person or the relationship beyond repair. Kevin goes on to say that he still loves and support his ex-wife, although she will be appearing on Vh1′s Atlanta Exes:
I gave her my opinion on why those shows are put on air. I said, ‘Ask yourself if you really wanna get caught up in that world, because it’s not all glitz and glamour. You have no power over that editing.’ I just tried to give her the best advice based on my experience. She felt it was a good opportunity and she wanted to do it. At the end of the day, it’s my job: that’s the mother of my kids, I’m gonna support her. I still love her, I’m not gonna see her out there doing bad. So you just back the decision and hope that it becomes a good thing for her.

Tamar Braxton releases more pictures of Baby Logan, and when I say he looks just like Vincent Herbert, I exaggerate not. Baby Logan is unbelievably adorable, and he and his mother are featured on the cover of Today’s Black Women.
Check out a few photos from inside the covers. This baby should have been named Vincent, too: Awwwwww
Kerry Washington has been on the cover of many magazines, but Harpo, who dis woman?!? That’s not the Kerry Washington I watch every Thursday on ABC’s Scandal as Olivia Pope, perhaps it’s another famous Kerry Washington on this cover of Lucky magazine. According to our friends at Cotten Kandi, gladiators are outraged.
Sadly, many people are outraged over the skin tone. Really?!? They feel like Kerry Washington looks several shades darker. The color isn’t the real problem here. Black people’s skin color changes shades often throughout the year but they still look like themselves. Besides most magazines lighten their covers to make celebrities “glow”. The real problem with this cover is that someone at Lucky photoshopped Mrs. Asomugha beyond recognition.
Lucky about to have some bad luck…because that’s not Kerry. They better call Olivia Pope.
In an exclusive from Carlton Jordan, NFL’s Ray Edwards strips down to nothing with plus size model, Tiffany Bank for an editorial in PLUS model magazine. The very steamy and sexy photo shoot, is designed to show that women with curves are beautiful and desirable, too. Tired of stick figures on the magazine cover with the hottest athletes and celebs, well PLUS founder, Madeline Jones, and model, Tiffany Bank want to break into mainstream with a new message of acceptance:
I did this to give people the opportunity to see what they are afraid to see or haven’t seen in mainstream media. Images like this of liberation, acceptance, and celebration redefine the ideals of beauty.
Check out the Not So Safe For Work photos from the PLUS via Carlton Jordan. I edited the above picture so you couldn’t see all of Ray Edward’s body, so trust me when I say there’s more to see…
Jay Z definitely shows out for the November cover of Vanity Fair as he shows off his style skills on the front cover and also inside the magazine. Aside from great fashion, Jay Z discusses what dealing crack has taught him and he also talks about Blue Ivy wanting to hear Magna Carta Holy Grail.
My album came out and I don’t know if Blue ever heard any of my music prior to this album—she’s only 18 months old and I don’t play my music around the house. But this album was new, so we played it. And she loves all the songs. She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more . . . Daddy song.

In a world where shows like Maury and Paternity Court use the subject of paternity as a way to get ratings, its sometimes hard to remember that there are people out there who honestly get hurt by these things. Celebrities aren’t immune either. During an interview with GQ Magazine, Idris Elba finally shared the story about finding out he wasn’t the father to his ‘son.’ He’s never really shared what happened, until now.
He was dating a woman in Florida, had been for a couple of years. They were living together and in love. She became pregnant and gave birth to a boy. For a brief moment, it was among the happiest times of Elba’s life. “The celebration of having a son—from a man’s perspective, it’s massive.” He told friends about it. He told reporters about it. Then came the suggestion—not from the child’s mother, but from elsewhere—that not everything was what it appeared to be. “It wasn’t immediately obvious—well, it was, because he didn’t look like me,” Elba says. “But it wasn’t immediately obvious what had gone down.”
