THIS WEEK

Khloé K and Tristan Thompson Are Back Together: Khloe and Tristan are “giving love another try.” A source told People that the Good American founder, 36, and the NBA baller, 29, have reconciled, almost a year and a half after Thompson’s cheating scandal involving Kylie Jenner’s former BFF, Jordyn Woods.  “Tristan is working hard to prove himself and has been a great dad to [the couple’s 2-year-old daughter] True,” the source said.  The pair reportedly decided to work things out during Kardashian’s 36th birthday party last weekend, which should come as no surprise to eagle-eyed fans, as Thompson sent a heartfelt message Khloe’s way on Instagram to help ring in her big day. “I’m wise enough now to know, you came into my life to show me just what it means to be an incredible person,” Thompson wrote. “I appreciate how I am able to learn from and grow because of you. I thank God for the beautiful and loving woman you are to everyone, especially our daughter True. You deserve the world Koko! True and I love you mama. Happy Birthday @khloekardashian.” Sources also claim the pair “acted like they were back together” during her birthday bash.

‘Strahan, Sara And KeKe’ Cancelled by ABC:  No one is saying why, but ABC’s “Strahan, Sara, and Keke,” is getting the ax, multiple sources told Page Six. The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines, and Keke Palmer is being replaced with “GMA 3: What You Need to Know.”  ABC News took the show off-air in March and replaced it with “Pandemic: What You Need to Know,” a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and occasionally TJ Holmes. “It was initially supposed to be a two-week experiment and the show did really well,” a source said.  “Pandemic” then morphed into “GMA 3” to include other topics in the news cycle. Strahan will still appear on GMA.

Essence CEO Resigns After Sexual Harassment Allegations: Earlier this week, a group dubbed Black Female Anonymous penned a scathing exposé about the alleged conditions of working at Essence magazine, and demanded that four top execs step down.  On Tuesday, one of the execs they named, Richelieu Dennis, resigned as CEO. In their essay, published on Medium, the women claimed that Dennis had a “surface-level commitment to Black women” but that he is actually “driven by greed and a debaucherous sexual appetite.”  They also alleged that “he has a history of sleeping with women on the Sundial staff [the beauty brand that produces SheaMoisture, and which he sold to Unilever in 2017] … For the women who don’t seemingly consent, he openly sexually harasses them at private company events.” At first, the company denied the allegations, calling them “unfounded attempts to discredit our brand and assassinate personal character.”  But on Tuesday night, they sent out a press release announcing a new interim CEO, Caroline Wanga, saying it was one of several steps to “ensure that Essence is the safe haven that we all expect.”

Q.  I have a serious problem.  I am scheduled to marry my longtime girlfriend in 30 days, but I’m seriously contemplating canceling the wedding because she recently confessed that she dated my brother a year before she met me. My brother has never mentioned it, and I understand why. We have always had an unspoken rule about dating the same woman. The thought of going behind my brother is troublesome. I find it difficult now to even see her in the same light because my brother and I both have had her. What do you think?   MORE


The Dating Chronicles
Cornered

Roger had always been popular.  He was smart, handsome, and full of mischief.  His phone rang constantly in the office from female co-workers who would go to great lengths to get his attention.  However, he would flirt playfully but never stop for long at any one desk.  For him, his life had room for only Kathy…and they’d been together since college.  But there was one woman in the office whose presence he was well aware of.   Margo.  She worked in the office next to his and her behavior was a constant enigma to him. MORE

Dangerous Decisions
Is Your Child At Risk?

 by Jan Pitts

A childhood friend desperate for “love” and any kind of attention moved a guy into her home, where she lived with her two teenage daughters.  He had a police record, which she knew about it, but she was too bedazzled by her need for a man to care about his past.   Unfortunately, the guy ended up raping both her daughters and when she found out about it, she shot him dead in her living room, while he lay asleep on her couch.  She is currently in jail awaiting trial for his murder.   MORE

Ducking The Altar

by Coco Diong

Some years ago, a runaway bride from Georgia got her fifteen minutes of fame because she did something that is almost unheard of regarding prospective brides.  She got cold feet at the altar and ran off leaving the groom looking totally puzzled.  It was such a unique occurrence that it made headlines around the world.  But this act is not nearly as phenomenal as one might think.  We found three women, who also went rogue and did a no-show at the altar leaving the prospective groom perplexed.  Here are their stories: MORE ____________________________________________________________________________

Connected You Are?

Just How Much
Are You Worth?

by Steven West

There isn’t any mystery to the art of money management.  It’s just a matter of common sense.  If you spend more money than you earn, then you go into debt.  If you spend less than you earn then you have money to save or invest. Perhaps, if you started to think of your personal life as a business- and began to try to operate it as a business in which you wanted to be profitable, it might be easier for you to grasp.  Let’s try it, for the moment and see how it works out.  Let’s pretend that I am going to “buy” your personal life business from you.

Reflections:

A Costly Date Mistake

by Celia Johns

Not too long ago, I realized too late that I had picked the wrong restaurant for a first date initiated.  The ride was too long and the conversation dwindled to silence on the way back home because things had not gone well.  We had sat in the restaurant for almost two hours, and it seemed I had done all the talking.  I was thrilled to be out with him, but I wondered what he was thinking.  Suddenly, he didn’t appear as interested as he’d been before.

10 Ways To Live

Your Best Life

by M.K. Allison

Several months ago, I came across some great tips by the motivational speaker, Anthony Robbins, which offered a new perspective on living your best life that I found transforming in my own life. 1. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.  Last year, at Christmas time, when I pulled the name of a longtime enemy out of the grab bag at work, I decided to exceed the $15.00 gift rule and gave her a $25 cash card.  When she opened the card, and came over and hugged me, I knew our feuding days were over, and I felt wonderful.   Later, she became my best ally at work.

Single Sketches

Emma: “I had been separated from my husband for about four months, and had no idea where he was. That is… until I anonymously received some wedding photos of him and another woman in the mail.” Greg: “I hate to take a woman out to a restaurant who does not ask my permission to order expensive items on the menu.”   Olivia: “The first time I went out with him, he sent me roses and candy, which arrived before he did. When he proposed to me, he had the pilot (we were on a flight to Vegas for a fun weekend) announce that he was about to propose and the stewardess brought me the ring.  Everyone on the plane stood and clapped.”  Carl: “I knew I wanted to marry her when she sent a limo to the hospital to pick me up after I broke my leg in a skiing accident, and she couldn’t get there because she was out of town.”   Ava: “I married him, but not before I told him I didn’t love him, and that I was still in love with someone else. He said he didn’t care.” MORE

10 Fun Things To

Do This Summer

by M.K. Allison
  1. Rent a cabin in the countryside for a weekend and invite several friends to join you for swimming, bicycling, hiking, or a barbeque.  Make sure it’s on a lake.  Renting a cabin is not an expensive thing and it’s a unique place to have an outdoor party with a bunch of friends.  Buy or rent a tent (they’re very inexpensive) and pitch camp with a few friends in a local park on a weekend or up in the country. Have fun and compete by playing a game of softball, chess, or volleyball. MORE
