Slam On

Soiled Suit

by Cheryl Lakes

Designer Slams Ashanti:  According to BOSSIP, a bikini designer called out Ashanti for returning soiled bathing suit.  After Ashanti nearly broke the Internet with her shimmery Ciroc ad cakes recently, the person who lent her the bikini has something to say. The store owner who goes by Aidan Euan, posted and deleted some jabs at the singer for returning a filthy bikini. He claims he reached out to her team about the staining and no response.  Aidan says the itty bitty two-piece contains over 6,ooo hand placed stones and took over 16 hours to make. None of that seemed to phase Ashanti, she has yet to publicly respond.

Cardi B Gets Thrown Out Of Hotel:  The 25-year-old “Bodak Yellow” singer said that she had been kicked out of the Hilton Albany in New York early Sunday morning after complaints about the smell of marijuana.  “The floor I was staying in in my hotel room, it smelled like weed. So the cops came in the middle of the night, knocking on my manager and on my door, talking about that we were smoking weed and we gotta get kicked out,” the former “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star said in an Instagram video.  “Everybody knows I do not smoke weed. I get very paranoid and none of my team members smoke weed. Rap star Cardi B claims NYPD cop put her in banned chokehold   A TMZ video showed Cardi B, who performed at the Times Union Center Saturday night, leaving the hotel early Sunday and shouting “racist motherf–kers.”  When the officers arrived at the second floor room, Cardi B’s crew and manager were already preparing to pack up and leave the hotel, because they were informed to do so by hotel management prior to the police arriving.”  A source told Us Weekly that the Bronx native and her team “were the only people of color on the floor.”

Jemele Hill Does Not Blame Her Network:  ESPN’s Jemele Hill’s political opinions have kept her in the news recently, as she first made headlines by calling Donald Trump a white supremacist before drawing a two-week suspension for suggesting a boycott of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ advertisers.  ESPN said the suspension was for a second violation of the network’s social media guidelines, and there were strong reactions to it on both sides. Some thought ESPN was wrong for censoring the personal opinions of its employees, while others chided Hill for what they felt were aggressive comments. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders weighed in on the controversy, calling Hill’s comment a “fireable offense.”   Hill herself weighed in on the suspension in an impromptu interview with TMZ Sports, saying she deserved the suspension for putting her employer in a tough spot, but refused to take back her comments. “So, here’s the reality: ESPN acted what they felt was right, and, you know, I don’t have any argument with that. I would tell people absolutely, after my Donald Trump tweets, I deserved that suspension. I deserved it because I violated the policy; I deserved that suspension.  The only thing I’ll ever apologize for is putting ESPN in a bad spot. I’ll never take back what I said.”


My fiance`spends a lot of time comparing me to his ex-wife.

by Sarah Smart

Q.  I am engaged to a wonderful guy, but I’m having second thoughts about marrying him, because I feel overshadowed by his ex-wife.  For one thing, he is always comparing me to her, by what I wear, how I talk, and how I act.  On more than one occasion, he has called me by her name.  Deep down in my gut, I believe he still loves his ex-wife because he told me they divorced because she refused to work.  However, I overheard his sister say that she left him for another guy.


The Dating


A Change Of Plan

Jan knew Tom had something to tell her as they sat facing each other in the restaurant, and she could tell it was not good news.  While Tom squirmed in his seat trying to avoid the love in her eyes, he began to feel foolish and confused.  He had asked her to dinner to tell her that he loved another woman, and to end their four year relationship.  However, the words became lodged in his throat.  He was ready to move on, but he couldn’t find the words.  As the silence continued, his courage failed him.  He knew he couldn’t fool Jan.  He never could.  And now as he faced her, he was no longer sure of his feelings for someone else.

The One Thing

Women Do That

Drive Men Crazy

by Theo McNee

Some time ago, a fellow scribe wrote a revealing piece on why some women behave so ridiculous toward men in social settings, after they have spent hours dressing and primping to go out in hopes of being chosen.  In it, she claimed that some of the rude behavior men encounter when we approach one of these sisters is due to the fact that we may not be the brother of choice…and that it is common for women to go out and skip over the guys who don’t fit their criteria for an ideal hook-up.  However, my question is what about the brothers out there who fit the standard? The one who most women see as desirable, and qualified to “ring their bell?”    MORE

Can They Work?


by M.K. Allison

One of my college sisters met a guy a few years ago, who swept her off her feet under the suspicious eyes of all of her friends.  They had everything in common.  They liked the same music, they read the same books, they practiced the same religion and he never pressured her for sex.  When he asked her to marry him after one month, and claimed he was on the verge of a lucrative business deal, her sister voiced her suspicions out loud, but my friend wasn’t listening.  She was in love…he was in love and both claimed they had never felt like this before.   MORE

8 Tough Lessons

So far, this has been a tough year for me on the dating scene. I got burned a lot because I wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing.  Therefore, I made the decision to begin my birthday month with a clean slate and a more alert mind.  I decided to leave behind the “blisters” that still pushed my anger button, when I think of all that I experienced at my own hand.  I resolved to make smarter moves from now on.   MORE
