Men Lie, Women Lie, Iyanla don’t…

I’m a huge fan of Iyanla Vanzant. As a young girl, I received her book, Don’t Give It Away  as a gift from an older woman. Iyanla (and Tina Turner) taught me what an a-f-f-i-r-m-a-t-i-o-n was. I’m excited that she has a show on OWN (Oprah Winfrey’s Network) and even more excited about the work that…

My Spin on “Why Wasn’t I Good Enough”?

Why Wasn’t I Good Enough, was a particularly interesting post for me because many women feel that way. For whatever reason when a relationship goes sour women often blame themselves. When I was single I used to say “God is preparing me for something better and protecting me from something worst.” I only had one…

Why Blacks Should Love Oprah

“Excellence is the best deterrent to racism or sexism.” – Oprah W. In a war you need snipers but you also need close range shooters.

Married To The Game: The Wives of Professional Athletes

Divorce between regular people is ugly… add cameras and millions of dollars and it gets downright disgusting. Tiger Woods finalized his divorce from Ellen Nordegren this week and it made me think about the marriages and divorces of professional athletes and other celebrities/high profile individuals. I don’t want to get into the debate about whether…

Why She Gets Jealous

Even the most confident woman has her day where she gets jealous. Perhaps your girl is looking sideways at a new friend. At other times, it may have nothing to do with another chick, she may be envious of the time you spend at work or irritated at one too many Boy’s Nights Out. So…
