Chris, I completely support you and I'm more than happy to pay the $9.99 annual fee for the new forum!
Even though I followed the BB&W facebook page, I'm pretty sure I only made comments here on the website. I've grown tired of Facebook in general and will probably delete or disable my page at the end of the year anyway.
I'm extremely happy that you continue to push forward and upward...and that you take the BB&W community with you. I"m all in! :)

6 days, 15 hours ago on Answering My Own Question: YES; Asian Men ARE a Thing…a VERY GOOD Thing…
@_Toni_ This attitude is inherent in various microaggressions that are acted out by white women. Not all white women, but enough to suggest that there is the issue of white racism as acted out by white women that is routinely denied and never addressed. I think that as black women are shown to be more desirable than they have in previous decades we will see an increase in microaggressive behaviors to the point where it will become too obvious to deny.
YES!!!!! This has been happening to me for quite some time. At work, at restaurants, in subways, walking around Manattan, etc. I've had WW walk over to WM that are randomly talking to me and tell them that no one will talk to them if they associate with me. I've had WW chastise WM who've come to my defense against street harassment. I've also had a WW suggest, rather loudly, that I must be a prostitute because a nice looking WM on the elevator with us told me that I was lovely and started exchanging pleasantries. BTW, there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about me that would make anyone think I was a prostitute. I'm a business executive and I dress like one...some would say a little too conservative. When the WM that was talking to me responded back to the WW in my defense she quickly became undone...stormed off the elevator muttering that I should stick to "my own men". These are just a few examples...I've had WW exhibit a lot of aggressive behavior towards me. I don't like confrontation so I usually ignore the behavior and walk away if possible or simply turn away from them. I've had at least two women attempt to push me from behind because I had the audacity to calmly give them my back when their behavior was unacceptable. Also, I'm 45 and this behavior comes from WW and sometimes other non-black women in just about every age category.

OMG.....YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! This entire list is awesome!
I'm partial to dark hair and blue or green eyes and you've got me covered. The numbering seemed a bit off as the list went on so I hope I'm pointing out the right man...although there wasn't a "wrong" man in this list. My favorites...#6, #7, #20, #21, #31 - Ian Somerhalder is my husband in my head..lol, #45 and #46. The eyes have it!!!! :)
@tonyrog Several years back, this picture of A.K. was my desktop photo at home. I usually rotate the photos of my favorite guys...right now it's a picture of Ian Somerhalder all wet in his bath tub.

I wanted to try this line from Shea Moisture but I haven't been able to find it in any of the stores near me so far.
I'm watching but I'm three weeks behind and will probably catch up over the long weekend.
I like the show and I like the actors but I agree with the others that mentioned the lack of chemistry between Goran and Halle. I've seen him in several shows/movies and he never seems to have chemistry with his love interest. I think the only time I liked him was in the ABC show Red Widow...he was still a bit cold but he seemed to have a little chemistry with Radha Mitchell.
Alex Minsky and OMG...Chris Van Etten. YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! :)
1 month, 3 weeks ago on Man Candy Monday: Able Bodied Men
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.
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. :(

@Brenda55 @Law Wanxi @SirLoinDeBeef Get a Nutri-Bullet if you can. You can core the apple to take out the seeds but the rest of the apple including the skin get blended very well. That way you'll have all the benefits of both the juice and the fiber.

@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!

Travis Fimmel (Vikings on The History Channel)
Luke Arnold (Black Sails)
@IAOSingleMoms He's HOTTTT!!!! Reminds me of a darker haired Michael Vartan
@Tammy_Ghalden Have you been watching Jason on The Red Road? I usually prefer his longer hair but the hair cut he has on the show looks good, too.
@Tammy_Ghalden Every time I see Kit Harington I want to play in his hair. Well, for starters anyway...
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.
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.
