Tatyana Ali Tatyana Ali

Tatyana Ali revealed that her father warned her, “Don’t run after men, let them run after you.”  The former star of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has just finished a new film entitled, “November Rule.”  Aside from this, she also releases a new independent EP entitled “Hello.”  The actress and singer also revealed her thoughts about love.

According to Tatyana, it is not true that Love and Fear can happen at the same time.  She said:

“My last relationship was probably the first one that I probably felt some type of kinship with someone. And so, it’s not so much lessons learned as it is love [taking] courage. I can’t be with someone who is not courageous. Love means you can’t live in fear and have love at the same time. Not the kind of love that I’m looking for. And that’s what I learned from that.”

The actress and singer believed that “Almost Love” and “Real Love” are completely different.  She revealed:

“My last relationship was probably over a year ago. Like ‘relationship, relationship,’ and there are definitely songs inspired by that.”

“‘Almost Love’ (from my album) is about that. You go through it. It hurts but it just means it wasn’t right. It wasn’t really love. It took me a while to get to that point… Real love isn’t that. It can’t be! [laughs]”

What is the reason why she does not want to date someone who’s struggling?  She said:

“[On The Breakfast Club Morning Show] they asked me if I would date a struggling actor. Or somebody struggling. That’s totally different. [I said 'No' but] I thought a lot about my answer after I left because I’m not a materialistic person at all. Like, I’m really not, you know what I mean?”

“When I say, “You have to be successful already,’ it’s not in terms of ‘money.’ It means in terms of ‘your purpose.’ You have to have come into your purpose already because I’m already in mine. So I don’t see myself being with somebody who’s still searching. To me, that’s struggling.”

Mekhi Phifer Mekhi Phifer

Mekhi Phifer became well known in his role in Spike Lee’s Clockers.  After that, he was also featured in Paid in Full and played as a doctor in ER.  It seems that the actor is quite private when it comes to his private life.  However, when he visited Power 105′s The Breakfast Club to promote his forthcoming film, Divergent, he was open in discussing about his love life.

When asked if being married at a young age has affected his career, Mekhi replied:

“No it didn’t affect my career, it affected me and helped me learn a lot about myself. I was young, I was like 24 years old and that’s tough being that young in this business, where I was at in this business and being in a tumultuous relationship. Because you try to do the right thing, me and her have a son together. Being in that kind of relationship and that jump in my career at that age, it was tough. I can’t front arguing at home and going through all of that because we were both young and with both our A-type personalities–but we’re really good peoples now. We’re better off, like we’re happily divorced, we’re better off friends and we’re raising our son together now but at the time it was crazy. For a lack of a better term, you’re traveling and girls are throwing it at you and sometimes your catching it.”

Were they having a bad break up?  He said:

“Yeah and no, I was kind of relived. I had developed this bald spot in the back of my hair because I was stressed and I didn’t even know it was stress. But once we got separated and I didn’t make it hard, I left her with the house and all of that and just left. I left with my clothes and my whip so then I was cool. But I guess she was still affected by it, she did this whole Honey article.”

Tyrese Tyrese

Tyrese has been well known for his advices when it comes to relationships.  At the same time, the star of Fast and Furious also wants to keep his personal life private.  Not until the paparazzi has discovered that he has a special girl.

This week, the 35-year-old actor was seen  going out with his girl, Maya, who is a businesswoman.  It appears that the two are having a great time while dining at Chilli’s Restaurant.

Way back in December, when Tyrese was asked if he has a special girl, he shared that it is very essential to keep your personal life private especially during the time when you were still on the period of building a foundation.  He posted on Instagram:

Tyrese Tyrese

“My thoughts on new marriages and relationships…Keep it private. Keep some of the magic to yourself. Don’t post everything…Build the ‘foundation’ of friendship and those private moments alone. The world tends to not be happy for people. Until you know what you have, don’t feel as though you have to share every moment.”

“You never know, maybe I’m in a relationship. I move in silence. It keeps it special, fun and amazing.”

“Most of us entertainers have major validation issues. We want everyone to see and know everything so that our egos are fed constantly, but on a spiritual warfare level, people are mean and evil and don’t want you to be happy because they aren’t happy. Move in silence and enjoy the moment. Real advice for all of you lovers out there… People can’t hate or throw darts towards what they don’t exist……. Shhhhhhhhh…. Yup it’s true…. I love you!!”

“I think that if you’re committed to being a great mother, single or not, you’re going to enjoy every moment you have with your children.  I love when it’s just the three of us and no one can see how silly we’re acting. The preciousness of it all makes the tough days a little bit easier.”

Nia’s oldest son, Massai, is also one of the stars in the Single Moms Club movie.  To show his appreciation, he wrote a sweet letter to his mom:

“Filming The Single Moms Club was a lot of fun. It was awesome working with you, and I can’t imagine how hard it would have been if you weren’t there.  Now I really understand how hard you work.”

“You are loving, and are always there for me and my little brother…You have taught me to have a voice and fear nothing but the Lord.”

Will and Jada Smith Will and Jada Smith

“When I was 19, I auditioned to play one of his girlfriends on Fresh Prince and they told me I was too short. But then, many years later, once I started a film career and everything, Mr. Smith decided he wanted to come and ask me to play his girlfriend again. And I had to tell him ‘no’ again. Thank goodness because I think if I had done it, we would not be married today. Because you have to meet people when you’re ready and neither one of us were ready at that time.”

Jada also revealed that it was her mom who knew that Will was the right guy for her.  She explained:

“I remember meeting him one time at Bullock’s. Bullock’s is this department store here in Los Angeles. And I was with my mother! And here comes Will. He’s like, ‘Hey Jada!’ and saying hello to my mother and just as cheery and happy as he always is. And my mother said, ‘Why can’t you date a nice guy like him?’ I said, ‘Will?! That’s the Fresh Prince! What I’mma do with him?!’ And of course, look at me now. He got me on lock down, Arsenio! He got me! Finally!”

12 Years A Slave 12 Years A Slave

“I was stunned by it. You always have a hope when you’re making films, when you get to see them and they’ve gone off and gotten edited that when they come back they meet your hope and expectation of what they should be. This time it exceeded my expectation. I found it unbelievable what Steve McQueen had done.”
