Needless to say, the stars in this article came out swinging — angered by script writing or co-star drama for your mama. For them, it’s not just about learning and then flawlessly delivering lines on set. They want to be respected by both producers and fellow thespians. They want adequate pay and appreciation for all their hard work too. They want the same things us regular folk working regular 9 to 5′s want. But too often, we hear about catfight feuds between two actresses or ticked-off tweets involving angered actors. Like us, there may be at least one co-worker we don’t work well with. Perhaps for one reason or another, the film or TV show is moving in a different direction that’s undesirable to the actor. Check out the real reasons these celebs got in behind-the-scenes tussles.
You know women are feelers and men are thinkers. (Okay, let’s be real: women are just feelers and thinkers, while men are mostly just thinkers). Men tend to pay attention to their head before their heart when making decisions. In some arenas of life it is a strength, but in the arena of love it’s only a detriment. Men eventually feel the implications of their decisions on an emotional level, we just get there way before they do and it’s irritating waiting for them to catch up. Here are 14 times that men think before they feel, and it pisses women off.
You’d like to think that if you truly love each other and know each other, you’ll always understand each other’s intentions. You’ll never misinterpret why he did or said this, or perhaps failed to do or say that. But no matter how close you are to somebody, you’re still separate entities, with your own minds, your own stresses and your own desires. And after being with someone long enough, even the smallest slip-ups can blow up into relationship-ending issues. Don’t let these insignificant matters ruin a good thing.
The Bible says that the tongue is the most unruly member of the body. Now, I don’t mean to preach to you, but you don’t have to be a Christian to know that that’s true. Catch us on the right day, at the right time and we’re bound to say something extremely reckless and out of character. There’s no need to judge, we’ve all done it, or will eventually. We checked in with our faithful Facebook followers to see if they would share those same experiences. They graciously opened up and shared their flaws and regrets. Hopefully, these admissions won’t make you feel so guilty about your own tongue slips. And most importantly after reading these words, we hope that you’re inspired to take a minute before you say something you’ll wish you hadn’t.
Te’ Michelle: “Okay, just this once…go slow.”
Sharon: “You’re gaining weight and I’m worried about your health.” He heard “you’re fat.”
You love them, I love them. You can’t stand them, I can’t stand them. But for whatever reason, we always find ourselves tuned in every season for Real Housewives of Atlanta. They’re currently filming but we’ve got to wonder how much greater the ladies would be if they took some of the following advice…
Parents don’t like me. Let me be more specific with it: Mothers and sisters don’t seem to like me. When I started dating during my teens I had some less than favorable “meet the parents” moments. There was the boyfriend I was in love with in 9th grade whose Haitian mother always sounded like she was in the middle of a domestic revolution whenever she answered the phone. That summer, a paid internship painting over graffiti placed me with a guy who started off as a good friend who eventually grew into more. When we started dating, his family’s issues came bubbling to the surface and I figured out that the problem was more about his mother’s personal substance abuse issues than any imagined conflict with me. Then there was the first “mature” relationship I really had with a young man from the suburbs. When I first met his mother and sister, the look they gave me would have you think he brought the entire ‘hood with him, and in their eyes he probably had. I was from Philly (didn’t matter what part of Philly, it was just bad enough that is was Philly for them) so of course they assumed I was trying to trap their college-educated son, make him my baby’s daddy and probably be the reason he would fall victim to inner-city violence in a tragic First 48-style love triangle.
So after that point in my life, I’d given up on trying to be anyone’s daughter-in-law of the year. I am not a demure doll with a painted expression that agrees with everything my man’s family says because I don’t want to rock the boat, but at the same time I don’t think I’m one who brings drama and ruckus just because I can. In my experience with dealing with mothers and their sons or sisters and their brothers, it hasn’t seemed to matter what kind of person I am. All that matters is that I’m another woman in their loved one’s life and I have to be assigned some test to be granted membership in their circle of trust. In my experiences, the thing I never understood was why they had to be so nasty about it. There’s a difference between wanting the best for your son or brother and just wanting to be difficult.
I sympathize with the fact that it can be a hard transition for mothers and sisters who are accustomed to being the only women in a young man’s life and then suddenly feeling like their role of mama bear is threatened. The good news is, I am not looking for a son or a brother. I am looking for a boyfriend. All I’m asking is for mothers and sisters to lighten up and not make assumptions about a woman whom you know nothing about. Remember, you once were in my shoes too. There comes a time when a woman has to let a man be a man and make his own decisions, and that doesn’t mean that he’s being disrespectful. If you trust that you’ve, in fact, raised him right, then you should know that you can trust his judgment and respect his choices.
Almost every couple argues, especially if you’ve been in a long-term relationship. And while a tiff here and there is normal, what happens after you’ve had a huge blow up – the first (or the 50th) biggest argument of your relationship? While feelings of hurt, anger, resentment and anxiety are to be expected, how do you move past it to a point where you’re no longer nursing the upset that follows? If you want to make things right and move past the pain, try these things to bring your relationship back to happy.
Every day, women are plagued with thoughts of uncertainty with regard to their partner’s fidelity. Even the most secure women have times of vulnerability. We’re taught to trust our instincts but that lesson is challenged by forced logic, as we control our natural impulses in an effort to save face. No one wants to deal with being cheated on, but if the signs are there, maybe it’s time we wake up and smell the coffee. Don’t ignore these small but pretty clear signs.

Ah marriage, the perfect union of two imperfect people. However, once that honeymoon phase is over, and you’re in your third year (and hopefully beyond) of marriage, certain things can happen that’ll make you want to jump ship. You start weighing your options and asking yourself if you could deal with certain things for the “rest of your life,” or would you be happier being alone or with someone else. However, before you start looking up divorce lawyers here are a few things that can improve your union.
Some couples you would be devastated to see separated. They are two peas in a pod. You know they care about one another. Others you question constantly, “Why are they still together?” as they constantly argue and rarely just have a moment of peace. What makes the difference? Some people know how to work things out, while others just don’t know when to walk away. Here’s how you can know when it’s time to walk away:
