Mel B Says

Eddie Was

Her True Love

by Cheryl Lakes

Mel B Says Eddie Murphy Was The Love Of Her Life:  BOSSIP reports…Mel B has had quite the whirlwind two years, divorcing her husband of over 10 years, Stephen Belafonte, and being wrapped up in multiple court cases regarding extortion, blackmail, and physical and financial abuse allegations.   But according to Melanie, it all started when she lost the love of her life, Eddie Murphy. Mel B was in a year-long relationship with Eddie which resulted in their daughter Angel…but ended up with her getting dumped mid-pregnancy and meeting Stephen Belafonte before even giving birth.  As she tells The Sun, in promotion of her upcoming memoir “Brutally Honest,” Eddie was her one great love, but she lost it all over a misunderstanding. “I‘d been madly in love with Eddie and I lost him. Eddie was and still is the love of my life. He’s a genuinely decent man. It’s like a love story where we both have different versions of why it ended.”  Everything seemed perfect…until Melanie began to question if Eddie needed to have his entire family (his mother Lillian, his brother Charlie, multiple other family, friends, and staff members) living under his same roof.

Kanye Donates $150,000 To Family Of Man Slain By Cops: According to TMZ, Kanye West seems to have been touched by the tragic story of Jemel Roberson, the Chicago security guard who was wrongfully slain by police. The rapper decided to donate $150,000 to the family who had a Gofundme account set up with a goal of only $10,000.  Roberson was reportedly working security at Manny’s Blue Room Bar Sunday around 4:00 AM when several drunk customers were ordered out. One of the customers returned to the bar with a gun and opened fire. Roberson allegedly returned fire, then detained the gunman and held him at gunpoint until police arrived. When the police officer got to the scene, he then shot Roberson and killed him.  Roberson was reportedly working extra shifts to save up a little extra money to spend on his young son for the holidays.

Is Sean Combs Back With Ex?  When Sean “Diddy” Combs and Cassie Ventura, his girlfriend of nearly a decade, called it quits earlier this year, they reportedly planned to remain friends. As Diddy deals with the grief of losing Kim Porter, his ex and mother of his three children, he needs friends more than ever– and Cassie seems determined to support him.  On Friday, Nov. 16, one day after Kim’s death, Diddy and Cassie were spotted stepping out of a silver car in front of a specialized movement rehabilitation center in Los Angeles. It was the first time the Bad Boy Records founder has been seen in public since Kim’s passing was announced on Thursday.  An insider tells E! News the Cassie texted Diddy after learning Kim had been found dead in her home. The source says Cassie contacted Diddy in the interest of “checking up on him and expressing her condolences.”

Channing Is Out At ABC:  BOSSIP reports…It’s the end of a very short era for television. Channing Dungey, who became the first Black woman to lead entertainment programming at a major broadcast network, is leaving ABC.  She’s also the Entertainment President known for making the bold decision to cancel Roseanne after the star’s racist rant. Dungey said in a statement,  “I’m incredibly proud of what the team and I have accomplished over the years, and all the meaningful and impactful programming we’ve developed. This job has been the highlight of my career. While I’ve loved every moment and knew I could call ABC home for many years to come, I’m excited to tackle new challenges.”  We wonder what happened since there was no mention of where she going.

Michelle Obama Carries Her Own Playlist:  Former First Lady Michelle Obama arrived at her Essence magazine cover shoot ready to boogie. “When she walked on set, she had her own playlist. There was tons of Michael Jackson, Chance the Rapper — and when she put on ‘Humble’ by Kendrick [Lamar], things got loose,” the magazine’s entertainment director Cori Murray told “Page Six TV.”  Obama appears on the mag’s December/January issue, and talked about her relationship with Barack Obama. “You need a man who stays consistent. He’s respectful of the women in his life,” Murray said. “Barack has been consistent with his mother, his grandmother . . . He didn’t change.” Obama is on an arena tour promoting her memoir, “Becoming.”  First-day sales of the book topped 725,000, making it one of the strongest debuts of the year.

Ex-NFL Player Killed After Stabbing Cop:  Ex-Denver Broncos running back Jack Fields Jr. was shot and killed by police after he stabbed and officer several times according to TMZ. The former athlete was at a Residence Inn in August, Georgia when a call came in describing “trouble with subject”. When Sheriff’s Deputy Stephan Psillos found Fields in the hotel lobby and went to handcuff him, Fields allegedly pulled a knife from his coat and began stabbing him.  Psillos fought back and eventually shot Fields, he was pronounced dead on the scene.  It’s not clear what Fields to warrant the police being called, but back in 2015, he made news by punching one of his teammates unconscious during a locker room brawl.


I’m dating a guy who doesn’t know I have two children because I’m afraid to tell him.

by Sarah Smart

Q:  I have been dating a guy for two months who doesn’t know I have two children.  On our first date, he mentioned he did not date women with children and because I was so impressed with him, I didn’t tell him.  Whenever he comes over, I send my kids to the babysitter and when he spotted a picture and asked who they were, I lied and said they were my sister’s children.  I’m miserable and I feel guilty.  I love my children, but I’ve fallen in love with this man.  Could you please tell me how to get myself out of this mess?


The Dating Chronicles

The Date

Laila was tense and nervous.  It was her first time in a fancy restaurant and she was thrilled to be with Tom.  He was so handsome and so very nice.  As she sat there, she mused over the events of the day.  She knew that her co-workers were just as surprised as she was, when he asked her out to one of the most exclusive restaurants in the city.  She had overheard them talking in the ladies room.  They felt she was too unpolished to merit such an honor.    MORE

12 Things To Watch For…

by Jovan Tahale

  1. Pay close attention to all things he says or does. It’s healthy to be paranoid, until you know him better.  Be sure to let him know you’re cautious and leery of people you don’t know well.
  2. Develop an “Intimacy Principle” and stick to it. Sex in these times should no longer be a frivolous act.  Sexually transmitted diseases and domestic violence acts too often occur two-three months after initial meeting.   MORE

Tom & Barbara

Tom and Barbara had been close friends since high school, and Barbara had always had a secret crush on him.  However, she disguised her feelings as platonic and they went all the way thru college as best buddies.  He would tell her about other girls and she would pretend to listen, but deep down she kept her real feelings a secret.  When Tom got ready to marry, he confided all of his fears and anguish to her and as usual she listened and offered advice though her heart ached with envy.  MORE

One Woman’s Story

by Callie Springs

I remember it well.  The night my life changed.  I was out on a blind date with a guy my sister had hooked me up with.  When I stepped out of my car and saw him, I was thrilled and intimidated at the same time.  He was a star and I knew I wasn’t.  He was polite and accommodating throughout dinner, as he talked and I listened, but he looked at his watch so much that I almost became nauseous with nervousness.   MORE

What Do You

Talk About?

by Kay Mendel

Sharnie ended the call and let out a long sigh.  Don was attractive, but boring.  She had lied to get off the phone, but she decided to tell him the truth…one day soon.  She was lonely, but not enough to date a guy whose conversation was so trite.   MORE
