Jennifer Hudson Ends Engagement:  Jennifer Hudson accuses ex-fiance, David Otunga of ‘aggressive’ behavior and claims he taunted her with gun. After nearly a decade together, a rep for Hudson announced the couple’s decision to split in a November 2017 statement to PEOPLE. “They have been in the process of ending their relationship for a number of months,” the statement read. “Today, Jennifer requested and received a protective order against her ex-fiancé. Jennifer’s actions are solely taken in the best interest of their son.” The two had been engaged since 2008.  In her request for a protective order, Jennifer Hudson accuses her ex-fiancé David Otunga of ongoing harassing and threatening behavior and claims he once pushed her inside their home. “I am now living in fear of further action David might take,” the American Idol alum, 36, says in the order of protection, obtained by TMZ.  Otunga has denied any claims of abuse or harassment via his lawyer, who told PEOPLE he plans to file for primary custody.  In a specific instance, Hudson claims Otunga, 37, called her repeatedly while she was at a recording session; when she didn’t pick up his calls, the star claims her ex then asked their 8-year-old son David Otunga Jr. to record the scene, reports the site.   The order of protection also gives Hudson possession of their residence and orders him to stay away from her and their son.   Otunga’s attorney told PEOPLE in a statement her client “never abused or harassed Ms. Hudson or their son” and that he “looks forward to his day in court and in being awarded the residential care of the parties’ only child.”  We always knew something was going on because it seemed Jennifer was stalling on the marriage piece.

Serena Is Hitched:  Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian got married on Thursday at the Contemporary Art Center in New Orleans, in what was reportedly a Beauty and the Beast-themed wedding that drew a guest list of bold-faced names. Among them: Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, Tina Knowles, Kelly Rowland, La La Anthony, Colton Haynes, tennis pro Caroline Wozniacki, and Anna Wintour.  Per the Daily Mail, the couple overlooked no detail. Each table at the reception was named after one of Williams’s 12 Grand Slam titles, and guests took home replicas of Williams’s trophies as party favors. Members of the band New Edition reportedly played a five-song set during the reception. This wedding of great fanfare follows a banner year for Reddit co-founder Ohanian and his bride. On September 1, they welcomed a baby girl named Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., who was born less than a year after the couple announced their engagement (on Reddit) late last December.  In her August cover story with Vanity Fair, Williams spoke about the shock she felt when she first realized she was pregnant—and had to play the Australian Open in January.  No wedding pics of the couple are available as of yet.  The photo on the right shows Kim Kardashian West walking into the wedding.

Jesse Jackson Sr. Diagnosed With Parkinson’s: We are sad to report that civil rights icon/activist the Rev. Jesse Jackson said Friday that he has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. A neurological disorder with no cure, Parkinson’s can cause tremors, stiffness and difficulty balancing, walking and coordinating movement.  “My family and I began to notice changes about three years ago,” Jackson wrote in a statement. “After a battery of tests, my physicians identified the issue as Parkinson’s disease, a disease that bested my father.”  Jackson added that “recognition of the effects of this disease on me has been painful.” He also said he sees his diagnosis as “a signal that I must make lifestyle changes and dedicate myself to physical therapy in hopes of slowing the disease’s progression.”  Born in Greenville, South Carolina, the 76-year-old is a two-time Democratic presidential candidate.


I just found out that my fiance is still seeing his ex-girlfriend.

by Sarah Smart

Q.  I was all set to get married next month until I learned by accident that my fiancé is still sleeping with an ex-girlfriend.  I intercepted his voice mail and discovered a message she’d left for him regarding their recent sexual exploits and her having second thoughts about his idea of still seeing her after he marries me.  I have told no one about this, but as you can imagine, I’m incensed over this and I feel hurt and betrayed.  I have decided to exact my revenge, by just being a no-show at the altar.


The Dating


The Exit

Kyla was excited and couldn’t wait to show off Bill to her family.  Her sister was having a barbecue and she knew the whole family would be there.  It had been awhile since she’d met someone with such potential.  He not only fit her physical requirements, but he was smart, funny and attentive.  They had been dating for two months and he had not failed to send her flowers every week since the beginning.   MORE


Just How

Clean Are You?

by M.K. Allison

I recently made a startling discovery.  Everyone does not define body hygiene the same way.  The road to this revelation began one day, when I was having a conversation with a friend about what happened when I ran into a handsome ex-co-worker who I used to admire.  I recalled how I used to stare at him, and how he never noticed me in the way I wanted to be noticed.  He was always dressed to the nines in the most expensive clothes, and this day was no different.



10 Things

Girls Think

Guys Should Know…

by Jovan Tahale

  1. Never compliment our attractive friends or relatives in any way concerning their physical appearance. Comments such as these are acceptable only when solicited by us to back up our commentary.   2.  When we’re out together, we want all of your attention unless we’re at a game concert or theater. We hate it when you spend ten minutes or more talking to someone we don’t know while we pretend to look un-bothered or unfazed.   MORE

“Never The

Other Woman

…Not Me!”

by Kyla Strog

I wish I were the kind of person who could permanently and willingly accept living a solitary life.  You know…feeling comfortable being alone without being lonely, feeling happy in my skin.  I would like to be able to revel when I open my eyes each morning in the solitude of my bed and go on to spend my day productively engaged in work.  I would then return home to my apartment at the end of the day at peace with the world and myself.  It would make things so much less complicated.  MORE

10 Things To

Never Say To

Your Lover

by John Andes


  1.  Watch a guy struggle in a “fix it” situation, exhibit impatience, and then say “let me do it.” The words should always be “want some help honey?”   MORE

From The Male Room

Men & Their


The Truth

I think it would help if women understood that they really don’t have too many clues about what really turns a guy on and what doesn’t.  Most women think that sex is the ultimate for us, but few understand that it’s not the end-all.  While one woman is getting her hair weaved, because her man tells her that he is a fan of long hair, he could be busy cuddling up to another woman with short hair, or no hair at all.  You see, men know what they don’t like, but they’re not always certain about what they could like, until they see a “package” that appeals to them.   MORE
