Order Of


by Cheryl Lakes

Chris Brown’s ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran has filed court documents claiming the rapper vowed to kill her, and added that he’s beat her up before.  Considering her claims, a court granted her a domestic violence restraining order and now Chris must stay 100 yards away from Karrueche, her mom and her brother, according to a new report in TMZ.  In her legal statements, the model said that Chris “told a few people that he was going to kill me” because they are no longer together. Her documents allege that the singer has told friends that he was going to “take me out” and “threatened to shoot me.”  Karrueche’s claims, according to the celebrity website, that he “punched me in my stomach twice” and “pushed me down the stairs.” These incidents, if true, would have occurred while he was on probation from his assault on Rihanna.  The legal papers also claim Chris has threatened to harm her friends and even recently threw a drink at one of them.  Chris and Karrueche dated off and on from 2011 to 2015. They split for good after it was revealed that Chris fathered a daughter with another woman while he was dating Karrueche

kandi and porshaIn case you missed it, The Real Housewives Of Atlanta just took the reality show phenomenon to another level.  Last night’s explosive episode was downright nasty and sent Twitter into a frenzy as fans watched former friends Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams face off.  As previously reported Kandi was steaming mad that Porsha’s been spreading rumors that she’s a closeted lesbian. After Kandi told the viewing audience in explicit terms what Porsha had said to her in an effort to seduce her, it got really nasty between them. Here’s an excerpt from their convo.  “You was a freak hoe,” said Kandi. “You is a freak hoe. Your house is the international house of hoes,” said Porsha.  Porsha also alleged that Kandi’s husband Todd has side chicks in New York that Kandi’s well aware of, and goes by the name “Marvin” when he’s cheating.  “Your husband has other chicks who he goes with in different states–you like that?” says Porsha. “You think y’all only share in your room?  Call Todd and ask about what he told a girl in New York this past weekend—telling them his name is Marvin so that he can cheat. Marvin is his alias.”

drake and kanye 219Drake  opened up about his feuds with Kanye West and Meek Mill in an extensive interview with DJ Semtex on Beats 1’s OVO Sound Radio on Saturday, February 18.  The Canadian rapper, 30, admitted that he was confused by West’s much-publicized onstage rant during one of his Saint Pablo tour dates last year, when he criticized radio stations for overplaying music by mainstream rap artists, including Drake and DJ Khaled.  “I think everybody has their own little things going on. I’m not really sure what he’s referring to half the time because, in the same breath, I went from working on a project with him to him sort of, like, publicly s–ting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much,” Drake said during the hour-long radio interview. “When I hear that, I just distance myself from it,” he continued. “If that’s what it is, I don’t even really understand the point you’re trying to make, but whatever it is that you’re going through, I accept it. I don’t respect it at all. Me and Khaled are both just, like, good people. I’m not really sure why we’re the target of your choice that you made that night. But again, I accept what you’re going through.”  As Us Weekly previously reported, West was hospitalized for extreme exhaustion in November 2016, days after abruptly cutting his concert in Sacramento short following a rant against many of his peers, including Beyoncé and Jay ZDrake also opened up on Saturday night about his public feud with Meek Mill, 29, which sparked after Mill claimed Drake used a ghostwriter to write several of his chart-topping singles. The spat resulted in a series of back-and-forth diss tracks, including Drake’s “Charged Up” and “Back to Back.”  He continued,  “I respect revenge when it’s warranted.  It’s not something that I’m proud of because it took just as much of an emotional toll on me — maybe not as much as it did on him — but you always gotta hear about it. And just seeing people get so riled up on negativity, it doesn’t feel great. … That’s just somebody that I never really want to be friends with.”

A Lover? 

Read This!

by Joan Sinclair

Last year, my birthday was not a happy day for me.  One, I didn’t receive a card or expression from a romantic interest for the third year in a row.  Secondly, I had to hold the hand of a close friend whose ex-boyfriend’s wedding occurred on that same day.  Of course, this turned out to be an all day task.  She was distraught because she had been involved for over two years in a relationship she deemed marriage-bound eventually, and he had chosen to marry another woman.  MORE

Black migration 3



Things We Bet You Didn’t Know…

The Northern Migration…Studies of African-American migration most often focus on the 20th century, when millions of black people left the South, moving northward to industrial cities of the East and West.  Yet an earlier migration was also important.  Although not as dramatic in sheer numbers, and less well studied, it too had a profound impact on the courts of American history.  This was the migration that took place during the decades before and just after the American Civil War.  MORE

“No More Nice Guy!”

by Theo McNee

By all appearances, my cousin Hank* is the ideal image of what most women are looking for.  He’s gainfully employed, mildly affectionate, elusive, charming and smart.  He’s also handsome, and ever since high school, women have found him to be irresistible.  In fact, he has been breaking hearts for as long as I can remember.  He is now 39 and has never married.  According to him, it’s not on his agenda.  My uncle (his father) attributes his success with women, to the challenge he represents to them.  He told me once and I’ll never forget it, “Women don’t really appreciate a man they can figure it out.   MORE

SINGLE SCENARIOSWife showing husband her muscles


The Con Guy:

“If he seems too good to be true, he probably is.  My ego-driven friend got conned by a “doctor” who swept her off her feet after two weeks of dating.  Supposedly, he had relocated his “practice” from the West Coast.  She became suspicious because he kept claiming his money hadn’t been transferred to his bank, and she was footing all the expenses.  When I suggested she consider doing a background check, she resisted strongly because she saw it as an attack on her judgment.

When It’s

Hard To

Let It Go

by Coco Diong

Okay, so the good times were memorable.  But can they sustain you now?  Do they help at all when he doesn’t call?  Do the old times, long gone times do anything for the way you feel when he makes excuses for doing something else, everything else, but spend time with you?  Maybe you knew some of his ways would be hard to deal with.  Maybe you thought you could, with your love, change him from the dastardly character that he was, into your own personal prince.  MORE
