I love Toks Olagundoye as Jackie on The Neighbors. She has outrageous comic timing and can make any scene funnier just with an expression. And it doesn't hurt that she's gorgeous too.

Way back, when the wedding news broke, I said that there was something "bun in the oven" about the sudden nuptials. I said to start watching for a baby bump.
*Patting myself on the back*
I wonder if it's more than a coincidence that the news broke the week Kerry Washington is hosting SNL. When being fitted for costumes, the wardrobe people would notice. Or maybe there was certain physical comedy Kerry had to make Lorne Michaels and the writers aware she couldn't do because of her condition. Better to announce it now rather than staffers at 30 Rock leaking the news first.

Orlando and gold digger Miranda Kerr have been secretly separated for months, according to gossip sites. It's a good thing he dumped her. According to gossip, she only got involved with Orlando because his star was on the rise. He's been said to have had a fling with a flight attendant, but she has been way more promiscuous. She boinked Justin Beiber for the hell of it. And she thought she was trading up when she had an affair with Orlando's friend Leonardo DiCaprio. Of course, to Leo she was just another VS model notch on his belt. Learning about her affair with Leo is what supposedly killed the marriage.
So Condola might want to proceed with caution. Handsome guy with some not-so-pretty baggage. Of course, I'd like to think Condola might be a stabilizing influence on his life and career. I believe Orlando wants to do more meaningful work.
Then the cynical side of me is wondering if the show's producers are trying to drum up publicity for the show.
But still, they are a cute couple.

@JuneBug277 @Browncow @Uvo My question is where is the black writing talent that would create the next coveted, Olivia Pope-type role?

The first sentence of the last paragraph from the full article summed up the real problem: "Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong place." Yep. Get outside the bars and clubs and you might find a better class of man. Or maybe get out of Toronto. I didn't think the article was putting black men on a pedestal. In a way, I think she was setting herself up there. All these guys are so "enthralled" by her. And she was definitely overanalyzing what they wanted from her. Seriously, these guys were looking to transcend some dark dimensional territory of otherness and "colonize" her? Ms. Martis, you are overthinking men and what they hope to achieve with their, uh...transcenders.

@BWC Thank you for suggesting SAGA. I will definitely be picking that up.

" And, the slugs have taken to my basil like its a buffet."
Try sprinkling Sluggo around the plants. You can usually find it at nurseries. I've had great success using that, and it's a lot less fuss than beer traps and copper. Also, during the day overturn any flat stones, piles of debris and wood that they might be hiding under and just squish them.
Also, try picking the damaged basil leaves off (as well as any seed heads) and new leaves might grow.
Don't try to be a perfectionist when it comes to gardening. It's all about guiding nature, rather than controlling it. A garden is an ever changing canvas. And sometimes nature will surprise you in ways you wouldn't have imagined.

@chocolate_fashionista Along the same lines, I'd like to read about any black women who are getting involved in the modern farming movement.

@Browncow HOA can also be a pain for people who want to have beehives.
@Jamila I liked the action sequences and Antje Traue was badass as Faora-Ul, but I disliked the liquid metal Kryptonian graphics, An improvement over Superman Returns, but the script could've been better.
Several months ago there was a post about IR in comics that was supposed to become a recurring topic, but it's been awhile since a new one has been added. And Storm and Misty Knight haven't been discussed yet. Misty Knight has been swirling since the 70s, and even villains like Loki and Dracula have found Storm alluring.
I have scans of both that I could share if it's just a matter of finding pictures.
@Rosethorn If you want to see sound representations and examples of beautifully functioning interracial relationships for BW then head on over to YouTube. Plenty of them there. I honestly believe you could spend an entire weekend watching all the boyfriend/husband tags between bw/wm and bw/am couples. Then there are the additional day-in-the-life vlog postings, but that's a whole other story. But there are some great interracial love stories there.
If you're talking about interracial representation in movies and television, I don't think the toothpaste can be put back in the tube. I only see more romantic IR pairings involving black women.

@JuneBug277 I'll give the Terry fans a little bit sympathy...for now. Without warning, without a hint in the press that Kerry and Nnamdi were involved to prepare them for the possibility of wedding bells, suddenly news breaks that she is married. I can imagine their shock, the rending of garments, the online oaths of ceased viewership, etc.
It's all part of the grieving process. Anger and denial followed by reluctant acceptance. . I can understand how fans might be so taken with Kerry and Tony's acting scenes (as well as their real life friendship) and want to believe that such emotion and passion could exist in reality or carry it further into this online virtual world It's an extension of the drama.
And in the past I've been guilty of getting involved with a tv couple or two's romance that I wouldn't want to hear if they disliked one another in real life, or in the back of my mind thought that if it wasn't for a spouse, the two would be together in real life.
@Brenda55 @Bellatrix79 Maybe because it's near Sun Valley. A nice getaway during the summer for hiking, biking and tennis.
@Brenda55 @Jamila So very sudden this wedding. Baby bump spotting begins....NOW!
She sleeps with both men during one sweeps month, discovers she's pregnant, but then learns who the father is during another sweeps month.
@Jamila I thought they could have filed on a Monday, but I believe the US Weekly story said they got married on the 24th. Of course, this is US Weekly.......
@Brenda55 You won't know until sweeps month.
I will admit being surprised only because over the years when I've seen paparazzi photos of Kerry out with men they happen to be white. There was David Moscow and before Scandal she went to a DC press event with Lawrence O'Donnell and there are the photos of her with a rainbeau at a bookstore.
And also surprised because, as a professional athlete, he's also in the spotlight. That should have made it doubly hard to keep the relationship a secret.
But I only wish the best for the newlyweds.
But I am curious why they got married June 24th, on a Monday. You can get married any day of the week, but I'm curious why it wasn't during the weekend. Seems....sudden. Perhaps Season 3 of Scandal could involve a storyline with Olivia discovering she's pregnant?
So I guess no one watches The Neighbors? Even though it features ABC's other bw/wm couple? Hilarious show. Toks Ologundoye should be nominated for an Emmy.
My must-see drama is Elementary.
