Credit: BET I am totally here for Offset and Cardi B’s pending nuptials.  To be a young couple in love and openly profess that love in this “jump off” culture is  alright with me.  However, his proposal and their pending marriage has prompted a lot of conversation centered around how long should one wait before getting married?

All Isn’t Fare in Love and War

I’m a bit saddened with the news of Tamar and Vince’s divorce filing.  The recent  placement of their home for sale and her deciding to ice her music career in an effort to save their marriage weren’t  good signs.   Rumors of domestic violence and extramarital affairs have swirled for years.  If there is any truth to those rumors, they may play out during divorce proceedings. Hopefully the couple will pull through this. If not, then maybe they can be successful at co-parenting.  I guess all isn’t fare in love and…

Bitter Baby Momma’s and Yes, I’m Going There

I typically stay away from topics like this, but not today.  Ladies, get it together. I’m talking about the bitter Bettie’s.  The ones who do any and everything to keep the father out of their child’s life.  Not because they fear for the child’s safety, but because they are bitter, mad, angry and upset that man has chosen to move on with their life and be happy. That’s it! They refuse to accept the fact that the relationship is done and over with  and spend all their lil energy trying…

When friends fall out, it can get ugly real quick.    However, I have learned that  if you truly value your friendship,  then “putting on those big girl panties” is a must.   Owning up to your part in the fall out, is just the mature thing to do; instead of trying to justify your actions.  The later part used to be hard for me. But once I realized my fault in a situation, owning up become a  lot easier.   Maturing in friendships is important because, if not we revert back to …

“Say something bitch, yeah I got the knife now.” The words rang loud as I lay pinned down to the ground, while my son’s father straddled me.  His sweat dripped onto my face as his dark brown eyes filled with rage, pierced my soul.   As my back touched the warm sand, it seemed as if my heart was beating a thousand beats per minute.
