Beyonce

Bought A

Church…

by Cheryl Lakes

Beyonce Bought A Church:  According to TMZ, the over-a-century-old church was listed at $850,000 and is 7,500 square foot.  It has been out of use as a religious place for a while.  Beyoncé, 36, has reportedly purchased this church in New Orleans.  At this point, no one is saying why.  It’s not the first time that Beyoncé has hit headlines over a church – earlier this month Grace Cathedral in San Francisco held its first ‘Beyoncé Mass’, with the service including her solo songs and Destiny’s Child anthems.  They say the church was packed to capacity for the first since its beginning.  Reverend Yolanda Norton had the idea to base the mass around the pop icon, explaining: ‘When we talk about womanist biblical interpretation, Beyoncé felt like a natural fit,’ reports the San Francisco Chronicle. “’If we look at the trajectory of her person and her relationships, we can see so many issues black women face and how it can affect how we interpret the text.’’

The Latest Wedding Controversy: Kate Middleton, who looked gorgeous in a ‘cream’ tailored coat by fashion favourite Alexander McQueen for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding has been accused by the Twitter tribe of trying to upstage Meghan at her own wedding.  Though she was stunning, the Duchess’ choice created a stir as wedding protocol dictates that only the bride wears white when tying the knot.  Many viewers took to Twitter to complain about the colour.  “I’m no wedding expert… but should Kate Middleton be wearing white to a wedding if it’s not her wedding?”…”Kate Middleton : the only person in the world who can get away with wearing white at a wedding.”…”Kate Middleton in white … she just can’t take that it’s someone else’s day.”…”Doesn’t Kate Middleton know you shouldn’t wear white/ivory to a wedding????”  However, the truth is that the outfit was actually a “primrose yellow wool silk tailored coat, NOT a white or cream dress.”  Obviously, these Twitter-ites have busy lives.  What do y’all think?

The Wedding Ride – The Jaguar Cost:  Even their getaway car sizzled with electricity.  According to Page Six, after lovebirds Prince Harry and Meghan Markle traded vows in a radiant wedding ceremony at Windsor Castle on Saturday, the couple scooted off to their nearby reception in a 1968 Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero that had been converted completely to battery power.  But while Harry is undoubtedly used to only the best, the baby-blue wheels may have thrown him for a loop. The coupe was made to run on American roads, so its steering wheel was on the left-hand side.  The ride, which retails for $471,000, was rented especially for the wedding day, according to Britain’s The Sun newspaper.  The whisper-quiet ride can rev up to 60 mph in 5.5 seconds, the Independent reported.  It also sported a specially registered license plate that read “E190518” — with E for Essex and the numerals corresponding to the pair’s 19 May 2018 wedding date.

My best friend’s boyfriend gave me a huge cash gift for my birthday gift and I’m suspicious of his motives.

by Sarah Smart

Q.  At my birthday party last month, my best friend’s boyfriend gave me a birthday card with two hundred dollars cash, and a note in the card asking me to call him because he needed to talk to me about something. I want to return the money because I think the gift was too extravagant and I feel his motive is suspect.  I don’t want to call him, yet I don’t wish to offend him by giving the money back.  What do you think?  I believe he’s interested in me on the sly.  MORE


The Dating Chronicles

The

Lunch

Date

Larry and Susan were enjoying a lovely lunch.  Susan was impressed.  It was their first date, and they were exchanging witty banter laced with “getting to know you” questions and having a great time.  However, the conversation took on another flavor when Susan mentioned that she was a born again Christian who didn’t believe in premarital sex.  Larry, who had been obviously enchanted up to this point stopped smiling and began to interrogate Susan as if she were on trial.   MORE

Why Some

Women Don’t

Get Chosen

by Jay Wright

It was a Friday night and as usual a few friends and I were out for drinks at our favorite hangout.  There was Larry, the stock broker, Johnny, “the real estate tycoon,” William, the school teacher, and myself, the writer.  Out of the four of us, William was the only one who attracts women without trying.  He is the “playa” of the group.   That night, the topic was on why certain women aren’t chosen.  I had just met a beautiful woman whom I needed some insight on because I just wasn’t certain about whether or not I wanted to date her.  MORE

To Have

A Man Around

The House…

by Colleen Anderson

It had happened again, and this time I wept openly when the teacher asked if there was a father in the home.  My ten year old son had been jumped on again by the school bully on the way to school, and the teacher was suggesting that perhaps the confrontation could be prevented if my son could be escorted to and from school by a male figure.  I couldn’t stop crying as I drove home thinking about my son and my situation.  His father had never seen him, or ever been interested in his existence.
