Tamar-Braxton-and-son-Logan

Tamar Braxton is lucky enough to have a new album and at the same time there will be a new season of Tamar & Vince.  Aside from this, Tamar and her son Logan graced the cover of Ebony Magazine October Issue.  Tamar admits that she wants to support his son Logan.  She said:

“The thing I will always encourage Logan to do is to be the best person he can be. When he sets his goals, we are going to encourage him to meet his goals. Sometimes a lot of guys quit before they get to their goal. The most important thing I’m going to teach him is that, if you haven’t met your goal, then you are not finished. Because you are a man, you have certain responsibilities, and your responsibilities are different than mine as a woman. You don’t have a choice, you have to work, you have to make money because you have to take care of your household, you can not leave that up to your woman.”

“How we were raised, my dad always took care of the house and sometimes when it is split, when your son gets to be a certain age, he doesn’t understand when it’s time to raise his own son, that he is the one that is supposed to be teaching him. I feel as though a man can only learn to be a man, from a man, so for Logan, I’m banking on Vince to sit down with him and be his role model, and be his best friend because there are things I can’t teach him, because I am not a man.”

Tamar’s album “Love & War” is presently going strong.  Congrats!!!

Sarah Silverman who is made famous for being a comedian, felt sad when her dog died.  Silverman wrote a letter describing her 14-year relationship with her dog.  She wrote:

“Duck ‘Doug’ Silverman came into my life about 14 years ago.  He was picked up by the State running through South Central with no collar, tags or chip. Nobody claimed or adopted him so a no-kill shelter took him in.”

She added: “Since then we have slept most every night together (and many lazy afternoons).  When we first met, the vet approximated his age at 5½ so I’d say he was about 19 as of yesterday, September 3, 2013.”

She continued, “Recently, however, he stopped eating or drinking.  He was skin and bones and so weak. I couldn’t figure out this hunger strike. Duck had never been political before. And then, over the weekend, I knew. It was time to let him go.”

“The doctor came … I held him close [and]told him how loved he was, and thanked him for giving me such happiness and for his unwavering companionship and love.”

She concluded, “Then finally, when his body lost its heat, and I could sense the doctor thinking about the imminent rush hour traffic, I handed him over.  14 years. My longest relationship. My only experience of maternal love. My constant companion. My best friend. Duck.”

jackman

We have seen Hugh Jackman in full beard and sometimes with no beard at all.  When Deborra-Lee Furness, Jackman’s wife of 18 years, was interviewed on the Town&Country October issue, she said, “I like him clean-shaven.”

She added, “But I like him all ways: chubby, muscly, skinny. I’m always having affairs.”  The relationship of Jackman, 44 and Furness, 57 remained strong despite the various rumors about Jackman’s secret affairs with men.  When it comes to the gay rumors,  Jackman revealed, “It bugs her.  She goes ‘It’s big. It’s everywhere [on the Internet]!’”

Jackman admits that he is very much in love with her wife ever since the first day they met.  Jackman said, “I decided I won’t ask her to marry me for six months.  Then after four months. I thought, that’s the most ridiculous rule!  And it gets better every year.” Furness further added. “Here we are at 18 years.”

essence

Viola Davis graced the cover of Essence magazine – October issue.  When it comes to women’s hair, some people are comparing Beyonce’s hair with her daughter’s hair.  Viola commented:

“There’s not one woman in America who does not care about her hair. But we give it way too much value. We deprive ourselves of things, we use it to destroy each other, we’ll look at a child and judge a mother and her sense of motherhood by the way the child’s hair looks. I am not going to traumatize my child about her hair. I want her to love her hair.”

“My image of myself {as a youth] was in the mouths of young White kids calling me…ugly…and then going home to a mother who did not fully embrace her own beauty.”

Michelle Williams is presently promoting her inspirational music and she remains positive.  Her forthcoming gospel album which is entitled “Journey to Love” includes inspirational songs such as “If We Had Your Eyes.”  When Williams visited PMS Morning Show at Philly’s Hot 107.9, the singer was asked if she still had a beef with Keyshia Cole.  Michelle replied:

keyshia-cole-michelle-williams

“I don’t even do twitter beef. I can’t wait to see [Keyshia Cole] in person so we can talk and say ‘Hey, what happened?’ I will say this, I was a major fan of hers. That’s my first time even saying that. I understood her story and was rooting for her. My little sister was born with crack cocaine in her system, so when I see someone like Keyshia Cole, who is defying the odds, doing her thing and taking care of her family…. She was somebody I was rooting for, because I could understand where she was coming. It’s all good, people make mistakes, I don’t hold that against nobody, I wish everybody the best. I want everybody to win!”

Last week, Robin Thicke was involved in a scandal wherein he posed with a New York socialite.  In the photo, Robin was touching her butt.  Aside from touching her butt, the socialite claimed that the singer wanted to get in bed with her.

But Paula is not worried at all.  During the album release party of her husband, she is letting everybody know that they have a hotter relationship more than ever.

udonis

On August 24th, Miami Heat team captain Udonis Haslem wed his long time girlfriend Faith Rein.  Udonis and Faith had two sons, Josiah, 6 and Elijah, 2.  The wedding ceremony was held at the Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach.

At first, Udonis was fearful of marriage.  He said, “I just didn’t know how to ask her to marry me. We had never lived together and while she comes from a home with parents who have been together forever, my family experience with marriage had been negative and painful. There was no happy ever after.”

The NBA baller was having a difficult time confiding to Faith.  Faith confessed, “He can go inside of himself when he feels insecure. I wanted to be strong for him and let him know he had to stay positive, that this setback did not change anything between us.”

The couple also confessed how they were able to deal with abortion during their college days.  Udonis revealed, “I am not a huge fan of abortion, but we both had sports careers, plus we could not financially handle a baby.”  Faith said, “Udonis appreciated that I was willing to have an abortion. I found him caring, supportive, nurturing and all over me to be sure I was O.K. I saw another side of him during that difficult time and fell deeply in love. He had a big heart and was the whole package.”

The Miami Heat star finally proposed on Aug. 29, 2012.  Faith said:

“All of a sudden Udonis got down on bended knee, opened the ring box and asked me to marry him. I was shocked, but somehow managed a wide smile while blurting out, ‘Yes!’ ”

Congratulations to Udonis and Faith!

kerry-washington

On June 24th, Kerry Washington secretly married NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha.  In the Glamour October issue, the 36-year-old actress opens up about her marriage and why she does not want to talk about her love life.

Why does Washington kept on saying “I don’t talk about my personal life” in every interview.  She said, “I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me to talk about my personal life. I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine [InStyle Weddings, in 2005, when Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow]. But I couldn’t just turn around and say, “I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.” So I just thought, OK, no more.”

How did Kerry manage to walk down the aisle without any press or anyone knowing about it?  She said, “Absolutely! I’m walking around in the world with my ring. And when people say congratulations, I say thank you. But I’m going to continue to not talk about it and just let it unfold.”

“I don’t want to sound smug about it…but the point is to do what’s best for me. I have girlfriends in this business who talk about their personal lives, and it works for them, and I love it. But not for me.”

Do you agree with Kerry’s decision to keep her love life private?

The Kardashian Family Dines at Sugar Factory American Brasserie at Paris Las Vegas

Lamar Odom, the 32-year-old NBA player, has finally decided to join the rehab. According to sources, the baller entered into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center because, “He realized he needs help.”  In 2001, Odom broke the NBA drug policies and in 2003 he admitted that he used marijuana.  He said, “I just couldn’t control myself in L.A. … the lifestyle that I was living and the things I had access to.”  Recently he was arrested for DUI.

So far, there were no comments from the Kardashian family but this week, Khloe tweeted, “As much as I wish I were made of steel… I’m not…I’m pretty damn close to it though hehe.”

Wendy Williams commented on Lamar’s drug addiction and said:

“I met @RealLamarOdom one time, when my husband and I were shopping in LA. He was in the store too. After he left, he called in his credit card to pay for our stuff. I only know his kindness and share his struggle w/substance abuse. My thoughts r with u both Lamar & @KhloeKardashian. xo w”

sheryl-underwood

Comedienne Sheryl Underwood is now trying to make a heartfelt apology after her Afro hair comments.  During the June episode of the show “The Talk”, they were talking about model Heidi Klum’s choice to keep the hair of her biracial children for her art projects.

Here is their actual discussion:

Sheryl: I’m sorry but why would you save afro hair? You can’t weave in afro hair. You ain’t never seen us at the hair place going, ‘Look here, what I need is the curly, nappy beads. That just seems nasty.

Sara: I totally get this. I don’t know if I’m weird but I have my son’s first haircut –

Sheryl: Which is probably some beautiful long silky stuff. That’s not what an afro is.

After its rerun, Sheryl received a lot of negative comments.

heidi-klum-kids

According to Sheryl, she was being misunderstood.  She said, “The discussion was about cutting and saving hair. I didn’t speak about Heidi Klum or her children’s hair. I stated that the act of saving hair was ‘nasty’. Cutting and saving what I consider as dead… it’s like saving fingernails. People are accusing me of calling natural hair ‘nasty’. I did not say that.”

Sheryl appeared on the Steve Harvey Morning Show to make a tearful apology saying:

“I want to apologize at my recent attempt at humor that missed the target and hit my people squarely in the heart. To all of you, I say I’m very sorry for my failed attempt at humor surrounding something that’s very sensitive to us: our hair. I could use this time to try to explain the intent on what I said, but misunderstanding aside, the way the joke came out offended my people and my community which was not my intent.”

“[...] My choice of words was wrong and inappropriate. I hope that in time you can forgive me. [...]We make mistakes all the time, and I will use this as a learning experience to reflect on the power of words and how I personally use them. And I hear you. You’ve reminded me about the enormous platform that I’m blessed to have and that my words have power. Again I hear you. I’ve always portrayed myself onstage and on TV and anywhere you see me to be strong enough to take the hit, especially when I’m wrong. All jokes aside, I was wrong. I made a mistake. I juxtaposed images that are continuously hurtful to our people and for that I am truly sorry. For those who say it’s not enough, I can only ask that you let time heal this wound. Some of you have said things that are hurtful and we are not a people of slurs but we are a people of forgiveness. I made an inappropriate joke and an unfortunate statement that hurt the community that I love and work tirelessly for. I’ve worked over the years to earn your trust and your respect and I’m going to work even harder to get it back. Please accept my apology and I ask you for forgiveness and hopefully today this is where it starts.”
