Clare Crawley And Dale Moss Are Over, Page Six reports…Just five months after the former NFL star proposed to “The Bachelorette” in a whirlwind romance that “blew up” the franchise, a source exclusively told Page Six that the former couple is “done” and broke up “last week.” “There’s a whole bunch of problems between them,” the source said. “I don’t know what the specific breaking point was, but she wants him to move to Sacramento and he’s not crazy about that. She wants kids right away, he doesn’t.” Bachelor Nation began to speculate that there was trouble in paradise when the former pair began sharing cryptic posts on Instagram. Crawley, 39, posted a photo of her holding her ailing mother’s hand on Instagram, and wrote, “She has good days and bad, Just like we all do. Well, today I couldn’t hide my hard day. A mother always knows.” Meanwhile, Moss, 32, leaned on his spirituality, sharing a page from a book about faith. “God’s plan is bigger than we can imagine,” he captioned it, adding the quote, “There are days when I, too, want to see the nail holes and hear his voice of quiet assurance. There are those days when I just seem to need a little more visible proof to go with the usual dose of faith.”
A Bachelor Nation fan account also shared a post from Moss’ cousin that provided some insight into what may have torn the couple apart. According to @bacheloring, Moss’s cousin unfollowed Crawley on Instagram, and wrote in his Stories, “We know the truth! Now unfollow us in real life.” Up until this week, Moss and Crawley appeared very much in love. They spent the holidays together and were spotted showing off their PDA during shopping trips and romantic strolls in New York City. Moss, an aspiring host, recently revealed that he “turned down” appearing on “The Bachelorette” several times, but said, “the only reason I committed to it was that Clare was announced [as the] Bachelorette at that time.” However, soon after their speedy proposal, — which host Chris Harrison said “blew up ‘The Bachelorette’”, and producers had to bring in Tayshia Adams as a replacement — rumors began circulating that Moss only went on the show for the fame. Media insider Delaina Dixon shared on Rob Shutter’s “Naughty But Nice” podcast that Moss was aggressively pursuing fame as a TV personality long before he went on the ABC dating show.
OWN’s ‘Ready To Love’ Series Finale Didn’t Disappoint. On Friday night, we didn’t learn enough about the singles from Houston, but we did learn a lot. Alicia was five months pregnant when she initially went on the show looking for love but didn’t tell the producers. She has since had her baby. Even though the show ended with Wynter and Anthony being together solidly, they broke up over a finance issue, but are now “back talking.”
Denise got called out for making up a lie and putting Joy’s (pictured left) name on it, who by the way seems to be the show’s favorite single based on social media. Jay and Joy were sitting together and appeared to be still hooked up, but they left us hanging in terms if they’re still together. We guess yes, because of the intimate way Jay spoke to her when Symone got all the way out of order with her after being called “messy.” We are suspicious as to whether or not Kelfani and Adriana are still together? Their chemistry looked a little off. And everybody here was shocked at Alex’s dress. We can’t wait ‘til next week, when more juicy details will be revealed. Stay tuned.
YFN Turns Himself In. BOSSIP reports…YFN Lucci’s life has been flipped upside down in the worst way possible. Earlier this week, news broke that Atlanta police issued a warrant for his arrest. Lucci was wanted on felony murder, aggravated assault, participation in street gang activity, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. Police even went as far as to offer a $5,000 reward for information. Luckily, Lucci turned himself in without the need for more trouble from the police. The charges stem from a situation that occurred in December when Lucci was allegedly involved in gang activity that left one man shot and a supposed member of Lucci camps on the street with a gunshot to the head. The 911 call from that night is horrifying. Allegedly, Lucci was in the vehicle that pushed the man out and left him for dead. Lucci made his first court appearance alongside famed lawyer, Drew Findling. “The presumption of innocence is a fundamental constitutional right for every citizen. Beyond this, we have no further comment at this time,” his attorney Thomas Reynolds said in a statement to CNN on Wednesday.
Tyler Perry To Be Recognized At The Academy Awards: Filmmaker Tyler Perry will be recognized by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences during the 2021 Oscars for his humanitarian efforts reaching beyond Hollywood. Perry, 51, will receive the 2021 Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award during the live show for his philanthropic and charitable work.
“Tyler’s cultural influence extends far beyond his work as a filmmaker,” Academy President David Rubin said in a statement to Variety. “He has quietly and steadily focused on humanitarian and social justice causes from the beginning of his career, caring for people who are most often ignored.” So true! Perry is always at the forefront of a critical community need. The playwright will share the honor with the Motion Picture Television Fund. Past recipients include Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey, Quincy Jones, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, and Frank Sinatra.
Dr. Dre Is Home. Dr. Dre has been released from the hospital after suffering a brain aneurysm earlier this month. The music producer, 55, was discharged on Friday and will be monitored 24 hours a day by medical professionals, at his home, TMZ reports. It has been a tumultuous few months for Dre, who has been in the midst of a bitter divorce with estranged wife Nicole Young. Last week, he agreed to pay Young $2 million in temporary spousal support. But that’s not the only tribulation the rapper has had to endure of late: His Los Angeles home targeted by a burglary ring while he was still recuperating in the hospital. However, they were unable to get in.
Jade: “I once had a guy tell me that he stopped seeing me because I had a messy house.” Colin: “I think it’s common for anyone to feel unattractive after being told by someone you’re sleeping with that they have to end the relationship because they like you, but not romantically.” Jeff: “My cousin was about to marry a woman who hollered at him in public and berated him in front of others like he was her child. On his wedding day, he looked like he was on his way to prison. But midway through the ceremony, he told his bride-to-be that he had to go to the bathroom and never came back.” MORE

Laila was tense and nervous. It was her first time going to a high-end restaurant and she was thrilled to be going with Tom. He was so handsome and so very nice. She couldn’t believe he was interested in her. As she sat waiting for him, she mused over the events of the day. She knew her co-workers were just as surprised as she was when he asked her to meet him at one of the most exclusive restaurants in the city.

What To Do
When He Won’t
by Sheryl Smith
I had been with Jake for four years and we had formed a bond of closeness that I had never before experienced with a man. I could tell him anything about myself and he accepted me. He was my closest friend, but yet he kept a small wedge between us, which left me feeling often on the outside of his world. Every time marriage came up, he spoke of his fear. He had come from a broken home, and he viewed marriage as two people caged together. Since I was a product of a wonderful home environment, I sympathized with him and tried to understand his fear.

How They Met…
by Lisa Cregier
Tom: “I made an agreement with a female friend I’d met on the tennis court to marry her for appearance sake. She was afraid she would never marry, and she didn’t want to be the only girl in her family to not do so. I wasn’t attracted to her and the offer was irresistible. The agreement was that we would stay married for one year, get divorced and she would give me $50,000…$25,000 down and the remainder at the end of the year. However, we ended up falling in love and the balance was forfeited.” MORE
Afraid Of Blind Dates?
by Dani Stone
George thought blind dates were for people who couldn’t attract others on their own. As a kid growing up, he’d had an aunt who was rather plain, whom everyone in his family was always trying to fix up with a blind date. Therefore, when his friend Tom suggested a blind date with his date’s cousin, he was not interested. “Man, you’ve been trying to meet someone nice for a long time and all you’ve been meeting are bimbos. Why don’t you try being formally introduced for a change, instead of taking a chance on the hit and miss action of the streets.” George winced in silence. He had been looking for someone nice for a long time, but he wasn’t lonely or desperate enough to get stuck with a blind date. MORE

Q. What would you do if you found out that your best friend’s new boyfriend was engaged to one of your co-workers and you were by coincidence, invited to the engagement party? Would you tell her? My friend is so excited and thrilled over this guy, who has been suspect to me from the beginning. My friend is 37, never married, and obsessed with the ticking of her biological clock. Therefore, she is very vulnerable to guys with game. I’m afraid to tell her because she is very paranoid and always accusing others of being jealous of her. What would you do? MORE

Most people don’t realize that when they invite others to their home, their personality, taste, spirit, and imagination are on display. Example: If a man has an untidy place, it’s likely that if he doesn’t care about his own environment, he won’t care about you. On the other hand, if a woman is a neat-freak, who believes in absolute order in her home, she’s more than likely a control freak. MORE
How To Be Treated
The Way You Want
by M.K. Allison
I spoke to a number of women for this article, who claimed to have never experienced a bad bump in a romance-laden relationship because of their strict commitment/adherence to being treated well by the opposite sex. Here are their “keys to success” in the love arena. Barbara – “When a woman goes into a relationship with a man, she must immediately learn how to “spank his hand” with soft, but candid words at the slightest infraction. A woman must never allow her fear of being without him, to overrule her self-respect. I learned the hard way that men are magnetized to women who will only accept the best from them.” MORE
