Whitney Houston’s only child tweeted: “#HappilyMarried,” “SO #Inlove. If you didn’t get it the first time that is.”
Along with a picture of their hands—and their new wedding bands—on Thursday, Jan. 9. See the video below. Good for them.
I wish them the best.

Tyra Banks keeps expanding her brand. She’s stepped her modeling game up and expanded it to another continent. Check out the article from eurweb.com below:

*It’s about time someone recognizes the beautiful women overflowing in Africa.

Tyra Banks is pioneering her reality show in the Motherland with “Africa’s Next Top Model.”

The expansion is the fourth branch of her highly successful franchise. And so far, Tyra’s tapped Nigerian model Oluchi Onweagba Orlandi to serve as the host and co-producer.

“The African version of the franchise is long overdue and I expect the show to be a smashing success across the continent,” Oluchi said in a release.

Tyra also expressed her excitement for the new show via Twitter:

Twelve lucky beauties will be selected from eight countries throughout Africa, and like the American version, the ladies will compete in a number of photo shoots and challenges over the course of 10 episodes to see who makes it to the top.

LEAVE OTHERS ALONE

This is tasteless…
Sometimes people don’t know when to mind their own business. I see it all of the time. Fine, you have your opinion on something… in someone else’s life. You forgot something, right? What about your life. What’s missing in yours? You must be miserable. I guess the adage is true… “misery loves company”.

Atlanta An interracial couple is upset about words left on a parking ticket stub outside of a restaurant in East Point. A parking attendant at Spondivits wrote the words “Jungle Fever” on the stub. Kandea and Samuel Aarons said they drove from Columbus, Ga. to Atlanta to shop in the area and dine at the restaurant. They said the parking attendant at the restaurant was cordial, but they noticed the writing after they got back home. “To me those words were racially motivated,” said Kandea Aarons. The words are apparently a reference to the 1991 movie “Jungle Fever” directed by Spike Lee. The movie featured an interracial couple and the mostly negative reaction from the community to race mixing. “I was upset but I was mainly disappointed. Disappointed that this is still taking place today. 2014. Especially in the big city of Atlanta,” said Samuel Aarons. The corporate chef of Spondivits told FOX 5′s Morse Diggs that the valet parking company manager confronted an African-American employee that served the couple. He admitted to scribbling the message and he was terminated.

NEVER GIVE UP…

I’m still having an ongoing discussion with a lady who comments as “Jane Doe” about the Smith Family (Will Smith). Her problem is the manner in which they are being raised (like she lives with them or something). There was recent discussion about Willow (Will’s youngest daughter) not being chosen for the role of Annie – the movie. Will recently gave an interview and this is what he had to say:
Via NecoleBitchie reports:
“In the past 18 months, I have spent a lot of time focusing on the emotional aspect of my life and my family. In 2010, in one year, our family had the ‘Karate Kid.’ we had ‘Whip my Hair,’ we had Hawthorne, and at the end of the year, we did the Nobel Concert when Barack Obama won his Nobel Peace Prize. Don’t be clapping yet, that wears you out. The thing that had become very clear to me is the danger of a material world and focusing so hard on coming up with money or a house or a job. You focus so hard on those things, and sometimes you can lose focus on why you are doing it in the first place. The only reason to do any of that is to have love.
Willow was supposed to be doing ‘Annie,’ we got Jay-Z to do the movie, got the studio to come in and Willow had such a difficult time on tour with ‘Whip my Hair’ and she said, ‘You know Daddy, I don’t think so’ and I said, ‘Baby, hold up! I said no,no,no, listen, you’ll be in New York with all of your friends and Beyoncé will be there. You will be singing and dancing,’ and she looked at me and said, ‘Daddy, I have a better idea, how about I just be 12.’
I’m really learning through Willow the necessity that we have to snap ourselves back and refocus on the emotional needs of the people that we love. Someone’s emotional needs can be very very different from your dreams and what you think they should be doing and where they are supposed to be.”
After sending “Jane Doe” that interview, this is how she responded:
“Her parents are trying to live through her which is why they keep pushing her and Jaden into music and film and they are pushing back. Hence the reason she dropped out of Annie. I do commend her for taking a stand and wanting some sense of normalcy.
Have you ever seen Jada rock band perform? Poor thing is still trying and so is Will. Time to let go and let God HAHAHAHAHAHA.”
I responded to her last comment by sending her the following quote which I found on http://www.motivationalwellbeing.com “NEVER GIVE UP ON WHAT YOU REALLY WANT TO DO. THE PERSON WITH BIG DREAMS IS MORE POWERFUL THAN THE ONE WITH ALL THE FACTS. –AUTHOR UNKNOWN-
