Michael Ealy Talks Dating Taraji P. Henson On Wendy

Last month, we told you here first all about Michael Ealy and Taraji P. Henson dating. In an interview with the Wendy Show this morning, Ealy spoke on those rumors and wanted to clear things up a bit. He also spoke on the success of ‘Think Like A Man’, and what he likes in a woman. Here’s some of what he had to say.

On dating Taraji Ealy says jokingly,

“What I can tell you  is that, that after the film, and I know where this is coming from, cause Taraji was stalking me a little bit. And I think that’s what’s really spawning all these rumors, so I told her, you know, you gotta stop.

But it was just a movie. No, no seriously, we’re not together, we’re not together. But I guess we sold it on screen cause a lot of people believed it.”

Watch below for more on what Mr. Ealy had to say.


Are We Loving It? Rihanna ‘Battleship’ LA Premiere Look

Rihanna attended Thursday night’s ‘Battleship’ movie premiere at the Nokia theater in LA, looking stunning as always. Although battling the flu, Rih Rih wouldn’t miss the premiere of her first feature film, now would she?

She wore an all white Adam Selman halter dress with a plunging neckline and thigh high split, showing off those long legs of hers.

She also showed off a little back.

Although she does look a bit tired, not bad for someone hospitalized just 24 hours earlier.

She accessorized the dress with Vhernier and Neil Lane jewels and a pair of white Manolo Blahnik sandals.

[Throwback Fridays] Mary J. Blige “Be Happy”

Mary J. Blige debuted new single “Be Happy” off sophomore album, ‘My Life’ in 1994. The song was co-written by Mary and her then musically adviser and executive producer Sean “Diddy” Combs. It reached number 29 on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Blige’s third single to reach the top forty of that chart and reached number six on the R&B singles chart, becoming her fifth top-ten single at the time. She went on to surpass her previous successes but most importantly, her ‘My Life’ album was an eye-opener. It declared Mary’s arrival and that she would become a permanent and influential fixture in R&B music.

I was obsessed with this song! This, for me, is the Mary I love to listen to. Here’s “Be Happy”.


Captian This: Mom Breastfeeds 3 year Old Son, TIME Magazine

On Thursday TIME magazine released their latest issue with this cover of mom, Jamie Lynne Grumet, 26, breastfeeding 3 year old son, Aram. Almost immediately the media went up in a frenzy. While Grumet stands, almost too proudly, little Aram stands upright in a chair as he’s breast fed. Obviously, from the photo, he was very much aware he was being watched. Is it just me or is something wrong here?

Don’t get me wrong, I’m very much for babies being breast fed. I was breast fed myself. It’s medically proven that babies who are breast fed are healthier overall. With that said, once your child is over a year and can walk and talk you should stop!

What’s even more disturbing about this? The Los Angeles mother also uses the same form of attachment parenting to her adopted five-year-old son Samuel.

But, why would she do this? Grument says she was also breast fed by her own mother until she was 6 years old. She recalls, It’s really warm. It’s like embracing your mother, like a hug. You feel comforted, nurtured and really, really loved. I had so much self-confidence as a child, and I know it’s from that.”


Tamera Mowry Shows Off Her Growing Baby Bump!

How cute is this….

Less than a month after announcing she’s expecting a little bundle of joy, Tamera Mowry tweeted this photo showing off her growing baby bump.

She wrote, “Loving my baby bump. I’m obsessed with rubbing it:)”.

So adorable. We’ll get to see just how much her bump will grow as she prepares for motherhood in the second season of her and twin sister Tia’s reality show, ‘Tia & Tamera’. And, we’ll also get to see how much Tia’s own little bundle of joy, Cree, has grown since her delivery last June. The new season begins June 11th.

Don’t you just love these twins!

Former USA Kenya Moore To Replace Sheree Whitfield On ‘RHOA’

Former Miss USA 1993, actress and model Kenya Moore is confirmed to be Sheree Whitfield‘s replacement on Bravo’s ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’.

In a recent interview Moore told Sister2Sister, “I’ve had an opportunity recently to be on a reality show. I feel like it’s almost like my duty to take the job because it’s the converse of what we’re seeing now.”

“I can say that it’s an already established franchise. I’m back and forth between Atlanta and L.A….primarily Atlanta. Wink, wink!”

I was a bit surprised that Kenya was chosen as Sheree’s replacement. Moore is an established model and actress. Typically the “housewives” are women trying to get out of their husband’s shadows (if they have one) in hopes of creating a brand, gaining further success and being presented with more opportunities.


How “Damaged” Women Lose Good Men

“You get a good man, then you b*tches act simple.” – Troy to Robin in the movie Waiting to Exhale

If you’ve seen this movie, you know Troy wasn’t really a good man, but his point still stands.

Women out there are getting good men and then acting SIMPLE. It’s equivalent to buying a toddler an expensive toy. Although the toddler may enjoy the toy you can’t count on the toddler to have the maturity level to truly take care of and appreciate the toy.

Recently, I’ve had quite a few conversations with scorned women who are encountering good men for the first time like Aliens finally landing on Earth. And they are screwing up the situation more than ever. Are you doing the same?

Five ways you may be acting simple with a good man:

1.The Ex that Never Goes Away: Nobody, not anybody, nope not even him, wants to entertain too many stories about your ex. It’s great to provide context for why you feel certain ways or get upset over certain things but mention it once and leave it there. I understand. Your ex probably hurt you in ways that left you collapsed on the kitchen floor in a puddle of Oreos and prayer. However, a new man who is treating you well will start to wonder why you can’t seem to shake this ex in your mind and heart. Don’t give the impression that you aren’t over the past.

Chris Brown & Rihanna Beefing Again, Unfollows Each Other On Twitter

Well, a possible reunion between Chris Brown and Rihanna was short lived. The former lovers are at odds again. After the backlash, this morning, of Brown’s release of “Theraflu” remix, where it’s believed he disses Rih, she unfollows him on twitter.

At the 1:30 mark Chris raps, “Don’t f*ck with my old bitch it’s like a bad fur/Every industry n*gga done had her/Trick or treat like a pumpkin just to smash her…”

Since then, the media has been caught up in a frenzy between the former lovers. Brown then followed up with a response. He tweeted, “Assumptions! I didn’t say any names so if u took offense to it then its something you feel guilty about.”

Could that have been another jab at Rihanna for unfollowing him? Perhaps. He has since unfollowed his ex as well. Listen to the track below.


Britney Spears Is Officially A Judge of X-Factor

It’s been rumored for weeks but it looks like Britney Spears will join Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid as an X-Factor judge. The singer has reportedly signed a $15 million deal as guest judge to Simon Cowell’s U.S. X-Factor singing competition. It’s said Cowell desperately wanted the singer to join the show after giving Paula Adbul and Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones the boot last season.

“There’s been a lot of back and forth over the past few weeks as they negotiated the small details, but she’s on,” a source told E! News. “It’s all completed and Britney is beyond excited.”

Although the news is yet to be confirmed by Spears’ camp the rumors are believed to be true.

Was Britney the right choice for the show?
