Can you be friends with an ex?
Your ex was your lover, homie, and friend at some point. You two shared A LOT and probably have some great memories together. But can you ever really go back to being ‘just friends?’
A romantic relationship ending is emotionally tiring for both parties. You have to sometimes separate physically and emotionally. You’ll need to do new things, with new people, in new ways to unblend the lives you’ve started together.
But what about when some time passes? The romantic feelings begin to fade and maybe you both move on. It’s perfectly normal to be friends with an ex? Right?
In my opinion, that is a case-by-case basis. Some people can go right back to being friends and act like it never happened. Others will always have a deep brooding romantic fire that is just waiting for new life.
One thing that is universal is allowing time to heal. If you are considering being friends with an ex, first take into account how much time has passed and what life changes have taken place. Did you both find someone new? Is he or she going through a rough patch? If you befriend your ex during a rough patch it’s likely that he/she will start to look at you romantically again because you are helping them through this rough time.

The Office Life: A Memoir
If you’ve ever worked an office job, this one is for you. Perhaps you’ve seen that I recently said adios to my current job and I’m off to greener pastures (err sidewalks) in NYC.
But I’ve worked an office job all my life and I’ve found some things to be universally irritating.
Let’s begin at the top.
Before I’ve walked in and sat my keys down, three people have asked me a question. Perhaps the sleep in my eyes and my coat buttoned to the top gave the illusion that I had been here for an hour already and was ready to go. I need time to warm up.
I sit down, the voicemail light is blinking. It wasn’t blinking when I left. What was so important that you had to either call me after 6 pm or before 7 am? Absolutely nothing.
Outlook is of the devil. No matter how much you clear it out, 700 emails flood in as soon as you open it. There are e-mails about e-mails to come tomorrow. There are e-mails about e-mails that were never sent. There are e-mails about e-mails no one read and therefore didn’t do. And no e-mail about free lunch. The rest of these will wait then.
There goes the super chipper morning person. You silently pray they choke on sunshine.
In this month’s issue of SHAPE magazine, songbird Mariah Carey speaks on just how she got her “groove” back.
A year after giving birth to twins, “Roc and Roe”, Mariah says she looks and feels better than ever. She talks weight loss, wellness, and Whitney. Here’s a bit of what she had to say.
On her pregnancy weight gain: I put on around 70 pounds, but if you look at photos of me when I was pregnant, you’d say, “Wow, she gained 9,000 pounds!” A lot of it was water weight because I pretty much had head-to-toe edema, which is very painful. Luckily, all the swelling went away fairly quickly after the babies were born. Then I had about 30 more pounds to drop. I have such empathy for people who need to lose a lot of weight, because I know what they’re going through. I remember thinking at the time, “I’ll never look or feel the same again.”
On picking Jenny Craig to help shed the baby weight: I’ve been on other diets before-my weight has fluctuated 15 to 20 pounds over the years. But I liked the structure of Jenny Craig and that I can prepare my own food along with eating the company’s meals and snacks.
Yesterday we told you Olivia, has finally signed a deal with a new label. We’ve also discovered the singer has also found a new man.
Love is certainly in the air. Olivia may have found her very own prince charming. His name is Tarence Anthony Kinsey. He’s a former basketball player of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Memphis Grizzles but now plays for a team in Turkey.
When ‘Love & Hip Hop‘ aired this past season, fans speculated that there may be more than friendship/business between Olivia and her manager, Rich Dollaz, at the time. However, during an interview with Reality Tea earlier in the year, Olivia says not only was she dating but is “happily in love” with the former Grizzles player.
The couple, who tweet each other all the time, also have no problem professing their love over the social medium.
Here are a few tweets between the lovebirds. _______READMORE
I’m not sure what Tank was thinking went he tweeted this photo via Instagram. Perhaps he thought we cared to see what he looked like with his clothes off.

Now, here are my thoughts…… _______READMORE
Reports surfaced yesterday that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom had pulled the plug on reality show ‘Khloe & Lamar’. In wake of the news, Khloe’s reps has rejected those rumors insisting that the couple haven’t cancelled their show but instead would like to put it on hold. “The show has not been cancelled,” they told MTV News, adding that further production will “depend on their schedules as Lamar’s basketball is [the] priority right now.”
The couple have been most recently spotted in New York City where they’ve joined the rest of the Kardashians to promote the upcoming season of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians.’
At the moment, Lamar has recruited a trainer to whip him back in tip top shape. After a poor season, he is currently listed as inactive and hopes to be traded from the Dallas Mavericks once the basketball season is over.
We wish them well. Don’t you just love Khloe and Lamar?!
No More ‘Khloe & Lamar’
