Bio not provided
I was so happy she FINALLY got a major cover!
As for the the film Peeples. Apparently, the movie Peeples, a Tyler Perry Production, was made believe or not, BEFORE she was even signed or even made it big on Scandal. Then then it was put in the back burner (I guess even they knew it wouldn't do so well) and the only reason they released it now was because of Kerry's popularity and they thought they should strike while the iron is hot. Kerry was nice enough to do the promos for the film and not mention it but I think even she didn't expect it to be released.
I wish her the best and I am sure her career is going to get even better!

I agree with you ladies who said that they should have just told the horrible mother to go on with it and save everyone the drama. She sounds like a manipulative witch!She is way too selfish to kill herself, trust me. This all just a ploy. I agree with @kia who said it is all just a bluff. People like that are too self centered to kill themselves, using suicide(which is a very serious issue) as black mail. She is probably just reaching out for whatever tactic to scare her son. I too would have simply told her to go ahead, what is she waiting for? I don't care.

@Law Wanxi Haha, why do you say that? These are not the words I want to hear right now. I really like this guy, he is extremely sweet and caring. I pray everything goes well. I'm going in with a positive attitude but this article has got me a bit scared. As if I wasn't before, but now I really want him to tell them that I am black before I get there. I'm not sure if he is scared to tell them or if he thinks it's a non-factor to them.
2 weeks, 3 days ago on Asian Mothers are CRAY!! Second Story I've Heard of Moms Threatening Suicide Over Black Girlfriends!
@BWWOB I think it depends with the situation as well. If the son puts his foot down and stands by my side then I couldn't care less about his crazy mom. Sure family reunions wont be a walk in the park, but at the end of the day if he has my back then that's all that matters. I would probably just spend less time with the parents to stay away from the negativity. But if he looks like he is hesitant/scared and not sure about the situation then it's time to bail out.
Horrible. Unfortunately these are the things that come along when inter racially dating non white men. Some cultures are incredibly color struck especially Asian culture, trust me if the son had brought a white GF the mom would have had a different reaction. Sometimes I honestly think swirling is a little bit easier with white men, I really do.
I am currently dating a Chinese man (he was born and raised overseas, so he is not American). He is very traditional, I guess there it is normal for the whole family to live together, so his sister and his parents are all in his house. He wants me to go meet them. We have been dating for a short (3 months) while and I am terrified. I asked him immediately if they know am black and he said no. I told him to tell them before hand. I am not sure if he is putting so much faith in them or he is being naive but from the few interactions I have had with Asians in this particular area that I live, most can't stand black people, let alone having them as in-laws.
I can only imagine the pain your friend is going through. Sounds like the mother-in law is a manipulative b%#ch.
These lists are usually ridiculous, I know very few people in real life who take them seriously. And Gwyneth is so blah to me plus she is allegedly a very difficult person to be around which is why she also made it to another list this year- most hated celeb, so congrats to her.

Mh, it's Hollywood, open marriages are pretty common there. I'm sure there are lot more of these marriages among celebs- they probably just more discreet. They are grown adults and as long as they are happy, then good for them. And as for Denzel, a simply Google search would give you the full 411 on his "marriage"...

I'm glad people are speaking up. And this fool only properly apologized AFTER he lost his contract and was dropped by Reebok. These rappers need to learn. I hope they get even more backlash in the future for their disrespectful music. Better hit them where it hurts- their pockets!
Sadly, I think these rappers are used to getting away with disrespecting BW . Because foul, violent and offensive rap lyrics disrespecting BW have been around forever. But they need to understand that it doesn't work that way outside the black community. You cant get away with disrespecting non BW .I think this has become a huge issue because other races of women are offended as well.

Great article. I especially love the ending. I too believe in the power of positive thinking. Previously I would have rolled my eyes at the advise of being positive and loving myself but I tried it out thinking I had nothing to lose since almost everything else didn't seem to work.It was only after I started having a different more uplifting mindset that my love life took a turn for the better and I have had much better success in dating ever since then even though I haven't done anything major in terms of what I wear/where I go. It was just my mentality. Now I am in a relationship with a wonderful rainbeau.
Congrats to the author, I am so happy for you and I wish you many years of happiness!

Yeah Elin has no shame in her game, good for her. Same with women like Kate Middleton and her sis, Padma Padma Lakshmi and the list goes on.
I used to model for a bit and it was an open secret that a model's way to secure herself and her future kids a comfortable future was snagging an older wealthy guy, settle down and pursue other interests and use the "we just bumped into each other and I didn't even know who he was" line. What I noticed is that the most aggressive ones who went after this goal were non BW especially foreign women. Some of these women were even single mothers but that didn't stop them. And never once did I hear anyone call them gold diggers. Unfortunately such things are frowned upon in our culture. Sometimes a BW even uttering the words "stay at home mom" is frowned upon. Why not if the husband is a good provider?
Honestly I don't see a problem with it as long you vet well. Also some BW do this too but they usually aim too low and go after z-list athletes and c-list entertainers who will be nobodies and broke after a few years. Even celebrity BW seem to go this route. If I had access to all those nice places and powerful people the last thing I would settle for would be a z- list athlete with multiple baby mamas! One of the few BW who I can think of who seems to go for real wealthy is probably Naomi Campbell and maybe that's part of the reason she gets so much hate?

@Toni_M Yup, they are so not worth it!
2 months, 1 week ago on Why Saying, "You Aaaiight" Can Be So Damaging to Young Black Girls--Peep the Game, Play Smarter.
@Toni_M @introvertedwanderer Yeah, I thought about reporting, but the way I know my boss he probably wouldn't do much and since I'm new, I decided to let it go and just ignore them. Good thing I learned we will be working in different offices soon, so I won't have to see them a lot anymore :)
That girl is far from ugly, she has the most beautiful eyes, and when she smiled she looked really pretty.
It saddens me to see such a pretty girl go through this. I have been there, a place where I thought I wasn't worth it and it feels awful. Now I am so grateful that I am in a better place but sometimes, certain people in society will feel the need to "put us in our place" especially when they see that we are feeling good, on the path of finding love, or if we have finally woken up from all the lies. It's like they think, "How dare you, as a black woman, think you you can find happiness and love? Know your place!" But I'm not falling for it anymore.
Just recently I was at the office and I heard 2 of my co-workers, one Asian with major color issue (he mentions to anyone who will listen that he is like 5% white) and another white co-worker who is an undercover racist talk about BW. They were discussing how they would never date a black women, how unattractive they find them ect They have always been bitchy towards me so I know they talked extra loud so I could hear them. This upset me so much that I had to excuse myself and go to the bathroom to simmer down. But then later I thought to myself, "Why should I even care what these 2 DBR losers think? I KNOW I am beautiful, I KNOW I am desirable!I know I DESERVE a quality man" Guess what? The next week I got asked out on a date with a wonderful Greek rainbeau. So much for BW being ugly!
At the end of the day, we should never let people define our beauty. There will always be people who will find us undesirable, but then they will also always be plenty of people who cherish our beauty and they are the people I care about. I wish this young lady the best. I hope she finds someone who can give her guidance and make her realize that she is beautiful.
@PamelaFoster Yup, and I have heard this is not the first time this girl has talked smack about BW. She also said something nasty about Michelle Obama, I wouldn't be surprised if her man John Legend is cosigning her in the background when she talks sh@t about black women SMH
@Lexi88 that is really sad, I hope more people take notice of such foul behavior!
2 months, 3 weeks ago on Swirling in History Oscar Night!
I saw this video before, she was very gracious and elegant. Sly's face when he lost was classic lol
I know this is a bit off topic but since it is Oscars related I figured I would talk about it because I am fuming due to John Legends girlfriend, Christine Teigen, talking smack about the sweet, talented , Quvenzhané Wallis, calling her cocky and talking smack on twitter. I mean what grown woman attacks a child who is like 7 or 8? This little girl is so talented and gracious, she is nominated for an Oscar for her outstanding performance and yet this grown woman has the nerve to pick a fight. And what has Christine accomplished apart from being "John Legend's gf" , she is a nobody. I wish there was more outrage, but since Quvenzhané is a little black girl not many will care. Yet "sweet" and "helpless" Taylor Swift has the whole world by her side when Kanye West snatched her award SMH
@Butterfly1 I love both these ladies!

@Dandelion100 I know how you feel. Growing up I was shy and kept to myself, something which attracted bullies because they knew I wasn't a fighter and that I wasn't going to curse them out.
It's funny that you explained your situation because recently I had similar incident with a new co-worker. He was being rude me and he had just met me and seemed to be picking a fight (muttering insults under his breath, rolling his eyes whenever I speak, calling me stuck up). I didn't say a thing because I thought he was just immature, finally he said something so rude (something personal about my physical appearance, which was uncalled for) that I spoke up and said that no one asked for his opinion and that he was being really rude. And what he said next shocked me. He said, " I knew it. A typical girl with an attitude."
I was floored. Now even when I spoke up I wasn't rude, I never curse, I was just firm and serious. How do I have an attitude after speaking up for being picked on? I am very soft spoken and I keep to myself, yet when I say something, I have attitude? Yet he was the one giving me an attitude all day long. SMH Something tells me it has something to do with me being a BW. When we are elegant, polite and proper= uppity/stuck up. When we speak up= attitude.
Congrats to them! Cute couple.
George seems like a good guy and the way he looks at her, you can tell he adores her. I remember he was beyond adorable on Oprah, when he was explaining how they met, he kept following her around in every city so she could go out with him but Melody couldn't take the hint that he was interested until he told her. Too cute.
He is rich(worth over 3billion!), successful, smart and influential, she has chosen well. Hope I find a man like that too.
I wish them all the happiness in the world.
PS: Janet is also engaged to her billionaire boo! Love seeing BW marrying well!
4 months, 2 weeks ago on George Lucas Got a Fiancé for Christmas!
I am sorry but I don't trust some non BW when it comes to the dating scene, especially if they know you are a BW also interested in the same guys they are, it means more competition for them . I won't be surprised if they might even try to cock block some guys from getting to you. I have had a non BW "friend" do that to me before by not letting me know her friend was interested in me, only when he had moved on is when she mentioned it. I am not sure what she told him, maybe she said I don't date non BM men(even though she knows I exclusively date non BM). But she has no problem shoving any BM at me. Anyways, I agree with everyone who suggested that you just go out alone and see the difference in response.Women can get very vicious and competitive when it comes to dating, don't wait for them to help you, they have already showed they are simply looking out for themselves.
I'm also on the dating scene and I have learned a lot through my "journey" and one of the things I have noticed is that I get a lot more responses from men when I am alone. It's less intimidating so they can approach me easily and they usually start some kind of small talk. Plus when I'm with a friend we are usually consumed in a conversation or something so I am not that aware of my environment and a guy might be checking me out and I might not even notice.
And I agree to whoever said try to avoid the club/night scene if you want to meet quality men. Most of the men I have met in those type of places have been sleazeballs :( I mean it's OK once in a while but it is not the greatest place to meet and start a meaningful conversation.
And the confidence thing I won't cover because everyone already chimed in on that one.
Paris is such a beautiful place!I hope you enjoy and have fun. One day I hope to go to Paris too =)
