To Rocsi... this was very brave. Thanks for sharing because body image and weight is something so many women have to deal with and it's alot of pressure for a young girl. SO PROUD OF YOU ROCSI!!!! Girls pay attention... there are healthy ways of doing things and losing weight. Don't starve yourself! Just eat right and exercise. Unless you knew me from childhood alot of my current friends and acquaintances don't even know I was very overweight as a child. Rosci is right... don't judge, it is very hurtful. To this day I do not use the word fat because of how often I was called it in my youth... I think that is the most negative term. You will NEVER hear Mia Mendez call someone fat. Trust.

7/24/09 --- Update : allhiphop.com reports this morning Nas is ordered to pay $40,000 in child support... so I'm thinking the the rest of the $15,000 is going towards the spousal support.
You remember I blogged last week about Richard Jefferson calling off his wedding to Kesha in an email... Diane Sawyer (lover her) had an interview with Kesha and she talks about how this happen and her feelings.
Diane Sawyer: It wasn’t an entire surprise to you?
Kesha Nichols: No… It wasn’t; just a troubled weekend. It was a month of four funerals that we had to attend between our two families and wedding showers and traveling back and forth, but it just all came to ahead that weekend. We had the discussion on Sunday night and I had flown back to New York. He had just confirmed in an e-mail, what we had both spoken about the night before.
Sawyer also asked her about the ring?
Kesha Nichols: The ring is mine, the ring was a gift and my grandparents have it in North Carolina right now.
Ok so why did Richard make it seem like they hadn't spoken in a week and he just sent her an email like, I don't want to get married?? He said nothing about them discussing this the night before. Hmmm... well anyway, like what we said before Kesha seems fine with this. Good luck to her! and enjoy that settlement lol.

This made me so angry.
Since Michael Jackson died I have not watched the news. I have just been so disgusted at how the mainstream media has riddled this family with disrespect, and no matter what anyone, you or I included, might have thought of him, the truth of the matter is
-the man was still a human being and his kids and family deserve some privacy and space. And I know that I’m not the only one that feels this way, so I purposely kept the TV off. Anyway, I was walking through the house, and I don’t know how this TV was on, but I saw a little boy on the news crying his eyes out. So I turned it up. Here is this kid talking about being kicked out of the Valley Swim Club outside Philadelphia because he was black. Did you hear me? I said, “No way, this can’t be! It’s 2009. I don’t believe this!” But, I know it happens even in this year of Obama.
As I listened to the story, the anchorperson went on to talk about a woman named Althea Wright. This young lady started a non-profit called Creative Steps to help inner-city children. And apparently she had booked the Valley Swim Club’s pool and paid for it to be used by the children throughout the summer. As we all know, this is such a great thing. During the summer our kids can get into a lot of trouble if they don’t have something creative to do. Anyway, as the story went on, I was shocked to find out that it wasn’t just him but 65 children in all, black and Hispanic kids, that were kicked out of the pool. You should Google this story and read it online for yourself. It’s crazy! I went from being mad to being furious.
The news reporter went on to say that the president of the club and its members said, and I quote, “We don’t want to change the complexion of our club.” The president refunded the money of the children and asked them not to come back. WHAT?! I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I said I have to do something for these children. I can’t let them think that they are inferior because of the color of their skin. Then that night I saw the president of the Valley Swim Club on the news again saying that he misspoke and that it was a safety issue and the club wasn’t able to accommodate so many children. But the children themselves reportedly said that members were taking their kids out of the pool, and that they were saying things like, “Why are they here?” and “They’re black,” even insinuating that these kids would steal or maybe hurt their children.
Now get this. A few days later I catch the story again on CNN. This time the club was inviting the kids to come and swim. WHAT?! I’m confused. If you refunded the money because there was not enough room in the pool and it was a safety issue then why are you asking the same 65 kids to come back?
This is awful, and for anyone that has grown up in the inner-city, you know that one small act of kindness can change your life. These kids see the images of President Obama on TV and then they see the drug dealers and thugs on the corner. Which do you think is more their reality? One act of kindness, one person telling them that they are special, one moment of encouragement can make them move mountains. I know it to be true because I was one of them. They don’t need to be called names and be told that they are less than, because of the color of their skin or because of where they come from.
That’s why I’m telling you this. Since you all have put me in the position to be able to do something I feel like by me doing this we are all doing it together. This is all about the kids. So, thank you for letting me do this. Thank you so much. And do me a favor please. When you see these kids coming through the airport, (I’m sure you won’t be able to miss them. I imagine they are going to be super excited) when you see them in the park and in the hotel, let’s show them a whole lot of love and respect. Show them that they are just as good as anyone else. And show them that they can do or be anything they want to be no matter what anyone says!

“I didn’t see ‘Obsessed,’ so I can’t comment, but it’s just not about how talented you are anymore. It’s about, ‘How much box-office revenue will this person generate?’ When you see certain people – we won’t name names – they just don’t have the skill, and no one in their team has said, ‘You need acting classes’…“If you take time to develop your craft, God bless you. Jamie Foxx is an example of both [actor and singer].”
Ok so I think we all know Nia is talking about Beyonce or why would she have mentioned Obsessed??? I understand what Nia is saying because everyone knows Beyonce isn't the best actress... she is growing though because I think her role in Obsessed was the best yet that I have seen. Nia Long, I love her and yes would love to see her on the big screen again but at the same time... why hate on another persons grind. Beyonce is going after her dreams and she is fearless with it. I admire that. I do believe she has taken some acting lessons though because she definately needed them and I think B knows that about herself. Lol... This also has to do with who people are familiar with and the younger generation of today don't know who Nia Long is and that is unfortunate. Touchy situation but you know what... I love them both and I would pay to see both of them on the big screen! So bring Nia back!!!
