Tiffany Haddish And Common Are Done.  Page Six reportsIt’s over between Tiffany Haddish and Common, per a new report.  According to PEOPLE, a source says the two called it quits after more than a year together due to their hectic schedules. “They are never in the same city together and both of them are just too busy for a serious relationship.” The couple never really did red carpet appearances while they were together, but they often talked lovingly about their relationship. For Haddish’s part, she said the relationship was the healthiest one she’d been in.  “I’ve lost 20 pounds since I’ve been in this relationship,” she said last summer. “I feel more confident in me and it’s not him that’s doing it. It’s like knowing I got somebody that cares about me … that really has my back.” Common most recently talked about her in October.  He has been been in a number of high-profile relationships in the past, including dating Erykah Badu from about 2000 to 2002, Serena Williams from 2007 to 2010 and Angela Rye off and on from 2017 to 2019. He has a 24-year-old daughter named Omoye from a previous relationship.

Megan Thee Stallion Makes Surprise Appearance AT BTS ShowPage Six reports…Worlds collided onstage as Megan Thee Stallion and BTS performed the latter group’s hit remix of “Butter.” The K-pop sensations hosted the “Body” rapper on Sunday during the second of their two-night stop in Los Angeles for their “Permission to Dance on Stage” tour.  Megan showed up in a silky, baby-pink romper with bell sleeves and thigh-high boots, all embellished with bows for her verse on “Butter” before joining BTS for the final refrain.   Her drop-in was ostensibly a rain-checked dual performance, as the Houston-based artist was due to appear on stage with BTS at the 2021 American Music Awards last weekend —hosted by none other than “WAP” collaborator Cardi B — but canceled due to an undisclosed, “unexpected personal matter.”   Fans attending the show shared clips and images of the epic on-stage duet.

Kanye West Rants About ‘Going Back Home’ During Visit To Skid Row. Page Six reports… The fashion and hip-hop gazillionaire visited Skid Row on Thanksgiving Eve, and ended up ranting about how God wants him back with Kim Kardashian despite her moving on with a “low-key,” but very public romance with Pete Davidson. “The narrative God wants is to see that we can be redeemed in all these relationships,” said. “We’ve made mistakes. I’ve made mistakes. I’ve publicly done things that were not acceptable as a husband, but right now today, for whatever reason — I didn’t know I was going to be in front of this mic — but I’m here to change the narrative.” West then went on to blast Kardashian’s reality show networks E! and Hulu, explaining, “I’m not letting E! write the narrative of my family. I’m not letting Hulu write the narrative of my family … I am the priest of my home,” he said.  West, 44, was on Skid Row to take a meeting and “share ideas” with the CEO and president of LA Mission, a nonprofit that helps fight homelessness in Los Angeles.

A source at the event told Page Six West was “under the radar,” before he got on stage and spoke, and added that his current family situation wasn’t all he talked about. “He had never been there and wanted to see everything going on. He talked about saving the world and how he had all these ideas to work with LA Mission,” they said.  A source close to the Kardashians told Page Six recently that the family is “worried” about West as Kim’s romance with Pete Davidson heats up, saying, “He can’t be taking this well.”

Sheree Whitfield’s Boyfriend Wants His Name And Likeness Scrubbed From ‘RHOA.” BOSSIP reports … According to TMZ, Tyrone Gilliams still isn’t speaking to his girlfriend, but he wants to talk to the folks at Bravo about his past appearances on Whitfield’s reality show. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s boyfriend had his legal team fire off a cease and desist letter to the TV network, claiming the show has been using his name and likeness without his permission.   Now, according to the legal threat, Tyrone says he never gave the green light for him to become a recurring RHOA storyline back in the day. Even when he wasn’t actually appearing on camera, Gilliams was often discussed by cast members, and he says the network has been profiting off of him without his permission.

In the documents, Tyrone is threatening legal action if Bravo doesn’t cease using his name and image immediately. But not only that–he’s going even further, demanding the network scrub every trace of him from Real Housewives of Atlanta footage and social media posts, also putting the brakes on any marketing or advertising. As was previously reported, Tyrone is not on speaking terms with Sheree because RHOA filming almost put him back in prison. Gilliams is currently sentenced to home confinement, but when the reality star went to visit her boyfriend, she had plans to shoot scenes with him outside of his home

Strange Endings

by Jovan Tahale         

Just when you thought this was the ultimate relationship…it ended suddenly and abruptly.  This is the relationship you bragged about endlessly to your family and friends.  This is the guy you thought you knew…the one who seemed sincere and then WHAM!!!!  Out of the blue, something happens that you never saw coming and you’re shaken to the core.    Kara:  “Coming home early from work one day, I accidentally overheard a weird phone conversation between my live-in boyfriend and another man.  Ironically, it was three days before I learned I was HIV positive.  When I confronted him after I’d been diagnosed, he confessed that he’d been bi-sexual for years and didn’t know how to tell me.  He moved out the next day while I was at work.”     MORE

Strange Encounter

Carol sat alone in a dark theater watching a movie seven seats apart from a handsome stranger.  She had counted the distance when he first sat down.  The theater had few people in it on that particular afternoon and Carol was pleased with the scarcity of the crowd, as she took a seat in the back row where no one was sitting. When the stranger came in and sat in her row, she eyed him with suspicion, because he passed several empty rows to sit in hers.  She wondered why such a nice-looking well-dressed guy would be in a dark theater alone on a sunny afternoon.   MORE

Listen to my first mind and follow it. This year, I could have saved myself a lot of grief if I’d heeded that first thought that popped into my head.  That first thought usually depicts the truth.  I stayed in and out of relationship trouble because my “first thought” was mostly overruled by my second thought which was governed by my bad judgment, and my impatience.  I dated one guy five dates too many because I didn’t listen to that inner voice saying ‘stay away from him.’  I finally got the message when he stole my wallet out of my purse.     MORE

Single Scenarios

Sound Familiar?

You’re at home staring out the window. It’s 10:00 at night and you haven’t heard a word from your Honey Man.  He was due there at 8:00.  You wonder where on earth could he be?   You keep a steady watch at the window and you take another sip of the wine you poured earlier.  You are drinking wine (your second glass) to soothe your nerves and every time the phone rings, you jump and you’re disappointed when it’s not him.  It’s now 10:30 and you’re spent with exhaustion. You pace the floor in anger as you imagine him somewhere flirting or having fun with no thought of the time or you.  MORE

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 of still seeing him after he marries me.  I have told no one about this, but I’m incensed over this and feel hurt and betrayed.  I have decided to exact my revenge, by just being a no-show at the altar.  He’s from a very prominent family, where appearances mean everything, and the wedding is scheduled to take place at a big church.  I think it would be a waste of time to confront him since I’ve made the decision not to marry him.  I’d like your opinion.

4 Reasons He Won’t…

by Marian McGee

Studies show that when women between the ages of 28-47 were polled about the fidelity of men both married or single, 74% believed that it is almost impossible for the average man to be faithful to one woman.  However, noted psychologist, Dr. Marian McGee states that there are circumstances where a man won’t cheat and they are: 1. When a man feels totally accepted by the woman he’s involved with, meaning she is happy with him as he is. It also means he feels sure that whatever he does with his life, she will continue to love him and find him attractive.”  MORE
