I bumped into Morris Chestnut on the street years ago rounding a corner way too fast...LITERALLY BUMPED INTO HIM. He was nice about it and asked if I was okay.  I didn't know it was him until my co-worker pointed it out.  I remember being surprised that he was shorter than me.  I'm 5'7 and I don't think I had heels on at the time.  At least not high heels anyway.


The guy in the picture after Morris has really great genes or a really good skin regimen.  However, I'm more jealous of his thick and curly eyelashes.  LOL!


As for Tyrese, I can't look at a picture of him without wanting to throw a drink in his fast and walk away dramatically.  His publicist should tell him to keep his mouth shut.


Loved Bernie Mac and still sad that he's gone.


IDRIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :)

Wonderful actor and I prefer when he uses his British accent (Luther, anyone???).

Chris Meloni has become significantly hotter with age!!!  Brad Pitt and Lenny Kravitz have maintained their looks extremely well over the years.  Although with regard to the Lenny Kravitz picture, I'm genuinely not sure what I'm eyeing more...his abs and v-taper or that fabulous hooded sweater.  I would like one of each please.  :)

Oh and another thing–I don’t believe for one second that Gabriel Aubrey called Halley the n-word.


I totally believe it.  Why is it so hard to believe?  People say all kinds of crazy things when they are angry.  I've also seen it a few times before but thankfully never in my own relationships.  Years ago, my aunt had an older married couple (50-somethings) that lived in the apartment next door.  The wife was black and the husband was white...he was also a minister.  They were very nice and very attentive to each other whenever I saw them.  However, my aunt told me that they would occasionally fight and when they did...OMG.  They would call each other everything but a child of God and the n-word got thrown in there as well.  My aunt and some of the other neighbors could hear them through the walls.  One time my aunt got up the nerve to ask the wife about it when they were alone and she looked embarrassed but said they didn't really mean it.  They were just mad at each other and knew how to get under each other's skin.  When my aunt told me this we just both shook our heads because there is no way that either of us could tolerate that or participate in that kind of an argument.  If I remember correctly they were married for over 20 years when I first met them.  You just never know what goes on behind closed doors...unless you can hear through their the walls.  :(

@cns  I saw the new season premiere of Total Divas but I have to catch up.  Yes, I love Jimmy and Trinity, too!  Thanks for the reminder to watch.


I went to Hawaii five years ago and everyone warned me that it would be expensive.  I've lived in NYC my entire life and I thought the prices were on par on in some cases cheaper than NYC.  The only thing that seemed expensive to me was the price for a gallon of milk.  I think it was almost double the NY prices but some locals reminded me that almost everything has to be shipped in.  We paid about $10-$15 less for our restaurant meals in Hawaii vs. NYC.  I think if you live anywhere in the U.S. other than NYC or LA then Hawaii will definitely feel expensive.


I really enjoyed Hawaii and would definitely go back again.  If you have the opportunity to move there you should go for it.  :)


Also, all of the Samoan men I saw were VERY good looking.  It was like looking at The Rock in various heights...LOL!

I hope this isn't true but I have a sinking feeling it is.  I was really hoping that Janet had found the right person for her after all this time.

According to this link I've attached below, it seems they both wanted kids. 

http://www.heavy.com/news/2013/02/janet-jackson-husband-wissam-al-mana/ 

With all the money between them it seems that they could have hired a surrogate if Janet was having trouble conceiving or carrying.  I believe that's what Angela Bassett and Courtney B. Vance did...the babies are their biological children but someone else carried them. 

Maybe it's not about heirs after all...it seems like it doesn't take much for a marriage to fall apart now.  Very few people seem to be in it for the long haul anymore.  Sad!

I've been following Nicole's blog for a while now and really enjoy reading about her adventures.  I didn't even realize how close Iceland is to New York until I started seeing the Icelandic Tourism adds on the subways.  I believe it's a 4-5 hour trip from NY/JFK...not bad at all.  I'm starting to plan my 2014 vacation and I mentioned Denmark and Sweden to a few friends but none of them have any interest.  I may just go solo this time around.

I'm totally glued to the set when American Horror Story: Coven comes on, too!  I think the entire cast is fantastic but I'm mesmerized by Angela Bassett's complexion.  At 55, she is stunning!

 

I love to watch Kerry Washington (Scandal), Taraji P. Henson (Person Of Interest), Nicole Beharie (Sleepy Hollow).  I also liked Regina King on Southland...too bad that was cancelled.  Now she has a small recurring role on the Big Bang Theory as the head of human resources.

 

I'm a fan of Rutina Wesley although I grew tired of her character Tara on True Blood.  But that has more to do with the script than the actress.

Really good show!  I also read that Jill Marie Jones is joining the cast this month. 

 

Jill Marie Jones (who you'll probably most remember from Girlfriends) has joined the cast of Fox's hit new drama series, Sleepy Hollow, playing the ex-wife of Orlando Jones' character (Captain Irving, Sleepy Hollow's head of police). It'll be a recurring role for Jill Marie, as Cynthia, mother to she and the Captain's teenage daughter, Macey (played by the previously-cast Amandla Stenberg). Both characters (Cynthia and Macey) will be introduced during the November 25 episode of the series, which also co-stars Nicole Beharie and Tom Mison, and continues to increase its overall ratings with each episode.

Brice...Here is the quote below and the link to the article on the NY1 News website that mentions it.

 

 

The James-Vogels said that after the cops left, one of their attackers came back pretending to be a police officer while they were waiting in an ambulance.

"The EMT drivers didn't let him into the ambulance," Jacob James-Vogel said. "They then followed him and called the police.  Police say 28-year-old Nikolaos Katsos was arrested and charged with assault and harassment.

Yes, I think the restaurant deserves the negative press.  These people just ate there moments before the attack and it was obvious that they were in distress.  They should have let them back in to wait safely for the police.  I also read that one of the attackers came back while the couple was receiving medical care from the ambulance and tried to pass himself off as a police officer.  I believe this is the one they arrested.  How scary is that?  What was he planning to do?

Coconut oil for face and body, concealer for any areas of hyperpigmentation and lipstick or lipgloss (currently using Clinique Buttershine Lipstick in Raspberry Rush).  Those have been my most basic of items since early spring and I would feel naked without them.  I'll add blush to this list during the fall/winter/spring...I can't do it in the summer because my face sweats too much.

 

I was almost late for work a few weeks back because I couldn't get the top off the concealer.  I guess my hands were still slippery from the coconut oil.  I refuse to leave the house without covering up the few discoloration spots that I have.  I'm sure most people aren't paying attention but it bothers me if I don't do it.

 

My scent for the past two decades has been Estee Lauder White Linen.  I have a bottle at work also for an afternoon refresher sprtiz.  :)  Although, I cheated on it this spring/summer with a small bottle of Dolce& Gabbana Rose The One.  I loved this and probably over spritzed on more than one occasion...lol.  Seriously thinking about switching over permanently.

 No, you are not the only one.  However, in my case I admit that I've always been embarrassed about going to buy one.  I guess buying it online would solve that problem.  But what if the package is not discreet and I have to sign for it in front of the Fedex guy...LOL!!!

 

Also, I would be horrified if something happened to me and while I'm in the hospital or worse...dead... my family discovers my special "toys".  My best friend on the other hand has a collection and she just leaves it lying around her bedroom.  Her mother visits often because she lives within walking distance but she is not disturbed by it at all.    

 

I'm not sure why I'm still squeamish about it but I'm going to blame my Catholic school upbringing.  I still remember Sister Patricia saying that sex is for procreation only.

 

Hmmm...I don't know Christelyn you may have started something here.  But if my family ever discovers it, I'm blaming you.  :)
