Wendy Williams Shows Off 25 Pound Weight Loss: Wendy is back and healthier than ever. Williams, 56, revealed she lost 25 pounds over the course of quarantine and showed off her fit figure during her talk show’s 12th season premiere on Monday. “Food became disgusting to me,” she explained. “I was cooking at first and it was all good, I was shoveling stuff in my mouth.” Williams documented her elaborate meals on Instagram but admitted it became too much after a while. “Everything from hot dogs to lobster,” she explained, “but then it became I’m done with food.” 

Earlier this year, when Williams attempted to film her show from home, she taped herself eating lollipop lamb chops in a bizarrely sexual way. “Watch me eat. Watch me eat,” she said at the time, licking her lips. “You know you want to watch.”  At some point, she decided to put down the lamb chops because ahead of a routine colonoscopy, Williams had to be weighed by her doctor and realized how much weight she had lost over the past few months. “‘I haven’t weighed this little since high school,’” she recalled. “I feel really good, but I’m just alone in my romance.” Williams, who finalized her divorce from Kevin Hunter at the start of the year, joked she’s using the show to try and meet a man.

Sad News:  Pamela Hutchinson, Member Of The Famed Emotions Dead At 61:  One of the singers of the iconic family music group, The Emotions — has died.  The official Facebook page for the R&B group — comprised of three Hutchinson sisters — made the announcement Sunday, saying Pam passed away Friday … going on to explain she succumbed to health issues she’d been battling for years. Of Pam, the group said … “A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. We love you, Pamela!”  Pam was the youngest of the famous trio — her older sister, Wanda, and Sheila are 5 to 7 years older than her.  Despite their age differences, The Emotions left their mark in music history … of course, with a major contribution of Pamela as one of their key singers. The group got its start in the ’60s but skyrocketed to mainstream fame in the 1970s with a string of hits that landed on the Billboard charts. They’re perhaps best known for their single “Best of My Love,” but they also have a legendary collab with Earth, Wind, and Fire.  Click photo to see The Emotions perform their most popular song.

The Unexplainable

Suzanne:  “I was sitting in my car one evening at a light on my way home from work when a stranger appeared out of nowhere and tapped on the passenger window.  He asked if I had a jack because he had a flat tire.  Frightened by all the news accounts of horrible things happening on the streets to unsuspecting drivers, I pressed hard on the accelerator and sped off down the street.  As I glanced in the rearview mirror, I saw a look of pure anguish on his face.  Then suddenly, like a lightning bolt, I could hear the words of my Aunt Sibley, as if she was in the car with me.  MORE


The Dating Chronicles
The Penalty Of Deceit                                

Rod saw Donna when she entered the room, but she looked past him. He had come in hopes that she might be there. It was an annual party she never missed, but he was unprepared for the large lump that came up in his throat and the soft punch that dropped in his stomach. His hands shook as he walked toward the bar. She was talking to a group of women. He relaxed from the inside, as he watched her greet others warmly.  He wondered if she would do the same with him. He had messed up and he knew it. He’d made the worst mistake a man could make.      MORE

Lessons: “Now I Know…”

The Men:

Chad:  “I feel really guilty about a relationship I got involved in where I knew the woman was too nice for what I had in mind.  She was hoping for marriage or at best a serious relationship and all I wanted was fun and sex.  I felt really bad when I learned she had suffered a nervous breakdown when I stopped seeing her.  I will never again fool with a woman who’s more serious about the relationship than I am.”  Saul:  “A guy doesn’t have to lie.  I finally learned that the average woman prefers the truth and can accept the truth.   MORE

How Women Can Protect Themselves

by Coco Diong

Due to several recent incidents of domestic violence, (one man with an order of protection against him killed his ex-girlfriend and two of her co-workers in the place where she worked…another man shot and killed his ex-girlfriend this week as she talked on the phone to her mother) the seriousness of this crime is once again on everyone’s mind. These statistics on domestic violence help illuminate the problem: Every 9 seconds in the US a woman is assaulted or beaten. MORE

12 Smart Tips On
“Dating Well”

by Jovan Tahale

Whenever I use the term, “dating well,” in reference to myself, my friend Elayne always corrects my usage, with her definition of the term.  She defines the term to mean that one has made the decision to only date guys who have money, status, and good looks.  For me, the term means to date a classy guy under the best conditions and most favorable circumstances. I know too many singles who jump onto the dating scene without a clue of what they’re doing. MORE

Those Unforgettable Blind Dates
Ever Had One?

Tom:  “I was out on a blind date with a woman in a restaurant when she spotted her ex-boyfriend entering with another woman. She got up and confronted him with a slap in the face. They began fighting and the police were called. I got up, paid the bill, and left.  I was grateful that we’d only ordered drinks.” Keira:  “I was on a blind date with a gorgeous man who swept me off my feet. After we left the restaurant, he took me to the boutique next door and told me to pick out a dress and a pair of shoes.  He claimed it was his way of thanking me for a lovely date.  That was four years ago, and we’re still together.”   MORE

What The Women Say
About “Nice Guys.”

by Jason Blake

No doubt about it…Guys who are too nice are often rejected for being just that.  I ought to know because I used to be one.  Recently, I asked a group of women who agreed that guys who are too nice are often overlooked, to describe in their opinion, what it is that makes a guy fall on his own “sword” in his search for romance.  Here are a few of the answers that made me flinch.  Sheryl – “Nice guys try too hard.  They work too hard to impress you with their sweetness or pliability.  Your time is their time.  There is no mystique.  After a while, you get bored.”     MORE

Q. I’m currently engaged to a man who has sole custody of his two sons and they are the most misbehaved kids in the universe. They call me names and spit at me when their father’s back is turned.  However, when their dad walks into the room, they become little angels. I am stressed out over this situation, because I love the man, but I can’t stand his children.  I’m afraid to tell him how they treat me because he’s so protective of them.  I know he wants me to be a mother to his kids, but I don’t want to be.  What would you do?

The Date You
Don’t Forget

Karmela, 28: “I was out on a blind date with a guy who seemed to be struggling to converse after we initially met and sat at the bar.  The place was very crowded and very loud and I thought he couldn’t hear me well.  He would stare at me, and then look abruptly look away as if he was distracted.  When I attempted to initiate several conversations on various topics, he would mumble a response with his head turned in another direction.  Finally, when I asked if anything was wrong, he blurted out that he had not been told I had red hair, and he didn’t like women with red hair.  He gave me a weak smile and apologized for being so blunt.  Of course, I excused myself without responding and left him sitting there.” MORE

Meeting Up
Who’s Out There?
The Face Behind The Masks

by Dani Stone

I once dated a guy who was quite successful at convincing me that I was very special to him.  He was super-attentive and very spontaneous about sending flowers and surprising me with concert tickets to see my favorite artists. Therefore, I was shocked to learn after several months of being involved with him that he had hit on both my best friends and had tried to bribe my sixteen-year-old niece with $50.00 to have sex with him.
