Carmelo Anthony and wife LaLa are the latest targets of internet divorce rumors, but the pair shut down the rumor mill showing up arm and arm and all smiles leaving Scott’s restaurant in London this week. Carmelo also addressed rumors of a split telling the New York Post, “Just letting you know me and my wife have no problems. We’re good.”

Twin actresses Tia and Tamera Mowry have always been close, but the two got closer than close when Tamera invited her sister Tia to taste her placenta following the birth of her son Aden on the season finale of their reality television show, “Tia and Tamera.”  Tia, who joked that the placenta sample was payback for her making Tamera sample her breast milk during an episode last year, tasted the placenta (mixed with brandy) out of a dropper and said “I was really, really surprised that it tasted pretty good mixed with a little bit of alcohol.” Surprisingly eating the placenta after birth is believed to have health benefits such as treating postpartum depression.

Beyonce and Jay-Z celebrated baby Blue Ivy’s first birthday and it’s no surprise that the two went all out to celebrate. The pair reportedly spent $200,000 on a princess-themed birthday party for Blue and their family and friends. Her first birthday gift from her parents? An $80,000 diamond encrusted Barbie doll.

Actress Salli Richardson Whitfield was named Celebrity Host of the 21st Annual Pan African Film Festival which opens February 7th.

Salli, who is married to actor Dondre Whitfield, also stars in the Lifetime movie “Pastor Brown” in February and just finished wrapping a Lifetime Pilot, “The Secret Lives of Wives.”

  1. world cup tours 2014

    Absent from Italy 1990, Usa 1994 and France 1998, the Portuguese contested their 3rd
    World Cup at Korea/Japan 2002, exactly where they when yet again
    fell at the very first hurdle. A really distinct story would comply with at Germany 2006.
    Coached on that event by Luiz Felipe Scolari, the male
    who had taken Brazil to the world title 4 years previously, Portugal manufactured it all the way to very last 4
    before getting knocked out by a Zinedine Zidane penalty, with
    Scolari?s aspect then likely on to drop the match for 3rd place towards hosts Germany.

Dooling

 

It is always inspiring to read or hear someone’s testimony. Hearing from a couple who was able to face adversity and come out stronger because of it is even more inspiring. It is also encouraging and a reminder to those of us who are struggling in our own relationships that the trials that we dealing with in our lives at this moment are not forever. Although they might feel like the end, they aren’t. Our trials are storms but with love, faith, and commitment they can be weathered and they can become our testimony.

Former NBA star Keyon Dooling had a back-story and it wasn’t until it impacted his emotional and mental well being, landing him in the psychiatric hospital, that he shared it with his wife.

“After blocking out his pain for nearly 25 years, Keyon was ready to come clean. He told his wife he was sexually abused as a child, and that it started when he was just five years old. He had never properly dealt with the shame or the pain from what he endured and was now finally ready to heal. By holding tight to his faith and leaning on Natosha’s support, Keyon sought out the help he needed and fought to save his marriage and keep his beautiful family in tact. In September, he retired from the NBA and spoke out publicly, with Natosha by his side, about surviving child abuse.”

You might read those words and think “there’s no way my marriage would survive that,” but Keyon and Natosha are a testament to the fact that it is possible. To find out how these two are “making it work” visit Essence.
