About 3 1/2 months ago, the last of this darling, beautiful and happy couple, Jan and Quiana (Jenkins) Pietzrak’s murderers was sentenced to death. The families will always miss their beloved parted ones, but after 6 years, they could finally start healing. Neither Jan or Quiana got a chance to live out the happy lives they were planning.
If you are going to be a superstar in the spotlight, you have to take the bad with the good. Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea has had her share of bullying on social media sites like Twitter. A few searches will reveal beefs with Azealia Banks, Snoop Dogg, Q-Tip and even Papa Johns Pizza.
As a life coach who coaches women on high standards in looking for quality men I was particularly intrigued to read this post about Tia Mowry and her husband Cory Hardrict. Some women fall for anything and accept a man with no job, car, prospects nor potential for anything that remotely resembles being a good husband, father and provider. I advise clients of which to steer clear of these types and run the other way. They are disasters waiting to happen. I coach women on how to carefully vet men and eventually they will know how to spot keepers. In addition I recommend my clients read The Rules.
What an adorable couple! I found Mark and Ebony Schoenfeldt while looking for a different Mark and Ebony. I was thrilled to find this beautiful couple on their photo shoot by Amanda Hedgepeth Photography.
These enraged abusers don’t care who else they hurt or kill trying to get to their victim. The story of Carolyn Thomas who was shot at point blank range in the face, after her ex-boyfriend shot and killed her mother. What a monster! Carolyn’s face is permanently disfigured but she survived. #OctoberisDomesticViolenceAwarenessMonth
Fawn Stone 27, is a gorgeous and super talented lady who does not like to get caught up in drama. Well, with the exception of on the screen drama. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Fawn returned to her home city Los Angeles after graduating from Howard University in Washington, DC to pursue a career in acting and as a television correspondent. Most likely, Fawn can be found strutting her stuff in her 3-inch heels, even in a bowling alley. She says, “Heels are more comfortable.”
Worst nightmare for some parents of autistic children. Sometimes parents have to get extra locks and alarms for when a door or window is opened. So glad this turned out ok for little man (and his family!) On another note, this man is true marriage material for any fortunate woman. He is protecting this child who doesn’t have a care in the world, as it should be. A little boy was found wandering at 4th and Troost around midnight today with just a diaper on. Police later learned he was autistic, and they reunited him with his family.

Alex and Tom Clancy
The world of high tech military espionage thriller fans lost one of the greats Tuesday when Tom Clancy died. He wrote over 100 books and consulted on video games. The works I was most familiar with are The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, Clear and Present Danger and The Sum of All Fears as they were all blockbuster movies. Another “Jack Ryan” film will be released later this year and another book Command Authority will be released in 2014.
When Leontyne Price made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in January 1961, the final ovation lasted over 40 minutes. This United Negro College Fund ad clearly shows why. #BWDB
We are in the age of reality television. Some are great, informative, funny and all around good entertainment. Some are more on the drama side, making us cringe as we identify the one or two characters we love to hate. But we can’t stop watching. Well the newly anticipated reality show “On The Rise” may be a combination of all or none of what we are used to in reality television shows.
Have you ever wanted to write a book but just couldn’t quite get the motivation to get started? Well, your motivation is coming to Los Angeles and other cities that may be near you. Getrude Matshe is taking America and the world by storm with her program How To Write A Book In 40 Hours. Getrude hails from Zimbabwe but lives in New Zealand with her family.
A Little Cabin, The North Pole And Show Business is quite a story. Laurie Woodall, a dear family friend of my husband’s family and now mine, spent some time in northern Virginia. While visiting her childhood home, she showed me a rocking chair belonging to some of her ancestors that actually came over on the Mayflower with them. This rocker rocked more than 13 babies during this time and has been kept in the family for generations. Now Laurie has it to pass down. It must be wonderful to have such a family heirloom survive and still be functional. Laurie also shared that Harriet Beecher Stowe was a blood relative. Harriet Beecher Stowe is credited by some to have planted the seeds for the Civil War that eventually ended American slavery. I was excited to tell Laurie that the famous, symbolic cabin was purchased by Montgomery County, Maryland and is located on Old Georgetown Road in Rockville. This of course brought back memories of research that I did back in the early 1990s.
For years I have proudly waved the GOP banner and defended party politics to an extent. I am not one to make excuses for a proven racist Republican, and obviously I don’t think the party itself is racist. But, I am not a hardliner by any means and will call foul from my own party when I see it. Well, the Nation and I see it in Montgomery County, Illinois. I am outraged that Republican Party chairman Jim Allen, targeted Congressional hopeful Erika Harold who has the gall to run against Republican Rep. Rodney Davis. Allen really stepped in it this time going after Erika Harold in an ugly email with strong racial overtones.
Is This Delicious Soul Food Killing Us?
I am going to jump on the black woman weight loss/healthy eating bandwagon, but I am going to come from a slightly different perspective. I look at so many black women and want to cry out to them to get help with the morbid obesity robbing them of their lives. Most of us appreciate good, Southern food that tastes delicious and seems to be found in almost every household. At least it is that way at my relatives’ throughout Montgomery, Alabama. I had to have a heart to heart with my mother that this food is killing us.
Not only was Centralia, Illinois native Marcella (Marcy) Ng the first black woman military pilot (Army) in 1979; but she and husband Dennis were also Blasian trailblazers. Mrs. Ng shared with me that she found all the swirling and blasian terms interesting because she and her husband have been together 33 plus years.
