Love Alert! Dale Moss And Clare Crawley Are Indeed Back Together: After Page Six exclusively revealed that “Bachelorette” couple Clare Crawley and Dale Moss had split, the pair rekindled their romance. Now, in his first interview since the reconciliation, Moss says the couple are “in a good place” — but stopped short of saying that they’re once again engaged. “We are definitely taking time and spending time together,” he told the podcast “Hollywood Raw with Dax Holt and Adam Glyn.”
He added, “Clare and I, we’re in a good place. When the time is right we will definitely talk about all those things [publicly]. For right now, we’re just focused on one another. We’re keeping things private and that’s working for us, in time we’ll speak about that together.” But while the pair were betrothed at the end of season 16 of the “Bachelorette” in December, he demurred when asked if they were engaged once again. “I’ll say this, Clare and I are in a good place. Focused on one another and leave it at that,” he said.
Memorial For DMX Planned At Barclays Center In New York: A memorial will be held for DMX at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center next week, two weeks after the Yonkers rapper died from complications of a drug overdose. The hip-hop icon, who died at the age of 50 after spending a week in a coma, will be honored by family and friends on April 24. A source working on the event told Page Six that it will be closed to the public. Fans will, however, be able to watch via live stream. New York State guidelines currently restrict Barclays Center to 10% capacity. DMX performed at the venue twice, according to Billboard. Barclays Center opened a decade after the rapper’s chart-topping heyday. A funeral service will be held for the Yonkers-raised rapper the next day at a New York church, the outlet said.
Sherri Shepherd Shows Off Another 20 Pound Loss: This week, Shepherd, 53, showed off her jaw-dropping 20-pound weight loss on Instagram. The 5-foot-1 actress credited a strict high-fat, low-carb diet and intermittent fasting for her newly slimmed-down figure. “I am doing keto,” she wrote to a follower, adding that she’s also skipping sugar, dairy, beef, pork, booze (drinking water and tea only), and not eating after 7 or 8 p.m. at the latest. Back in 2012, Shepherd tipped the scales at 197 pounds — and she’s been up and down ever since. She shed 30 pounds in 2018 after quitting sugar, but more recently complained about putting on “COVID pounds.” For her most recent slim down, Shepherd shared videos of herself preparing healthy grub like sauteed kale with shrimp and scallops and sugar-free oatmeal muffins. Shepherd, who is now a co-host of Fox’s “Dish Nation,” also said she mixes up her fitness routine to get results. The Zumba devotee recently started roller-skating and pole dancing.
Sad News: Rapper Black Rob Passes Away: Harlem rapper Black Rob, born Robert Ross and the Bad Boy artist best known for his 2000 hit “Whoa,” has died at the age of 51. His death was confirmed by former label mate Mark Curry, who posted an emotional video message on Instagram Saturday. “Rob passed away about an hour ago,” Curry said as he walked down the street with tears pouring down his face. “I don’t know where to begin, but I thank everybody for the donations.” He added, “We’ve lost a lot [of] legends and we can’t afford to lose anymore.” Curry had last week shared a GoFundMe appeal to help Ross “find a home, pay for medical help & stability during these trying times.” The appeal was launched after the hip-hop community grew concerned about Ross, who had remembered the late DMX from a hospital bed, in a series
Alicia: It was Friday, and as was the custom, Alicia and two of her girlfriends met for lunch at their favorite restaurant. As they sat down, Alicia noticed three distinguished gentlemen sitting directly across from their table. One guy stood out because he was tall and very muscular. He was seated on the opposite side of the table from the other two men adjacent to her. He had such a handsome face that Alicia found herself glancing over at him all during lunch, so much so that she began to feel embarrassed. MORE

At a recent college reunion, while playing a game of Confession Bingo, my ex-roommate confessed after four glasses of champagne, that she had slept with my husband (who’s now my ex-husband) while we were dating in college. I was so stunned, I was speechless. She was the last person I’d ever suspect of doing such a thing. She had been my best friend, my confidante…my girl. For the remainder of the weekend, I avoided her, and I couldn’t wait to get as far from her as possible. Later, she wrote me a letter saying that she felt better getting it off her chest. MORE
STYLE: Either You
Have It Or You Don’t
One weekend, after losing a bet with my journalist brother, I ended up re-arranging and organizing his closets as my payoff. The work was dull and uninteresting until I came across his journal hidden in the back of his closet. Prior to this interesting find, I had always viewed my brother, as a “typical playa” who walked around confused in his quest to find the “right woman.” My sister and I, though proud of his good looks, often chided him about his seemingly frivolous disregard for the emotional strings of a woman’s heart. He was in our minds, a dog, a “pedigreed dog.” but still a dog when it came to women. He had always seemed too hard to please and never satisfied with one woman until a year ago. That’s when he met Liza. After reading his journal, I understood why. One paragraph particularly inspired this article. MORE

Q. I was recently engaged to a man who suddenly announced out of the blue that he didn’t want to get married, and he wanted his ring back. We had been engaged for two years and he kept putting the wedding off. When I asked for an explanation, he slammed out the door and I haven’t heard from him since. I am very angry and I refuse to give the ring back because I feel he owes me. Everyone in my life thinks I ought to move on, and give him the ring back. What do you think? I am so stressed over this that I’ve had suicidal thoughts. MORE
Sharing Him …
Do And Why
by Coco Diong
Sometimes I wonder is monogamy still the pinnacle of a relationship? According to surveys, yes, but it seems that more women are growing more frustrated than ever in their search for a man of their own and many are opting to compete for the affections of those who are already connected to someone else. I talked to several women who are and have been involved more than once with men who are very open and candid about their relationships with other women. All were educated, career-minded, in some cases regretful, and never married. MORE
