Former “Basketball Wives” star Jennifer Williams has been hinting around the fact that she has a new man for months. Her cryptic subtweets have sent social media lurkers in a complete frenzy as they’ve tried to piece together clues to figure out who her mystery man could be. At one point, the public was convinced that her new man was R&B singer, Maxwell, as the two seemed to be spending a substantial amount of time together and photos began to surface. Nosy folks like us thought we were onto something until Jen matter-of-factly informed everyone via her Twitter page that she was not dating Maxwell and proceeded to joke that these rumors and speculations were going to get her in trouble with her real man.
Jamie Foster Brown of Sister 2 Sister recently caught up with Jennifer at an event and homegirl was not alone. She was with her new man, who happens to be Cisco Rosado of CMG Entertainment. Jamie, who insists that Cisco is already in love with Jennifer asked for the scoop on how the two met.
“I did a video for him for one of his artists…we just met then, but nothing happened. Then, we met a few months ago to discuss some business, and then it’s been like…” she expressed.
Of course, Jen tried to play it cool, but you can tell she’s all in too. Considering the hardship that Jennifer endured during her marriage to retired NBA player, Eric Williams, it is great to see her happy in a new relationship. Hopefully she and Eric will finalize their seemingly never-ending divorce soon so that she can completely move on with her life.
We are so happy for Jen and we’re definitely rooting for her and Cisco.

Marriages CAN last in the spotlight, and these couples share their secrets on how they’ve been able to maintain their relationship and go the distance…with their marriages lasting longer than a Hollywood minute.

They Certainly Love To Work Together: 15 Black Celebrities Who Boo Up Repeatedly In Movies and Music
We love each of these actors and singers for their talent, but no role in film, TV or stage is more perfect than the roles they have together, reliving some of the most classic movie roles and songs as a duet. Here are 15 Black celebrity couples, primarily from the 90′s and beyond, we love to see together on the big screen, the main stage or in our headphones, and the many projects they’ve starred in together.
Angela Bassett & Laurence Fishburne

It pays to be Beyonce and Jay-Z. Literally.
The power couple (and new parents) earned a combined total of $78 million from May 2011 to May 2012 making them Forbes Highest-Paid Celebrity Couple of 2012.
Though Beyonce put the brakes on her whirlwind schedule in 2011 to welcome into the world her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, the mommy still raked in dough during her maternity leave. According to Forbes, Beyonce pulled in large sums from her old hits, and that’s on top of the money she’s made from her platinum-selling album 4.
Between May 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012, Forbes reports that Beyonce earned $40 million, thanks in part to her non-musical ventures, including a fragrance collection.
As for Jay-Z, he made millions as part of The Throne, which sold out arenas on a global tour. He stacked slightly less dough than his wife, with Jay earning $38 million between May 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012. Some of his money came from non-musical enterprises, including cosmetics company Carol’s Daughter and ad firm Translation, according to Forbes.
The highly-paid pair were the runners up last year, but they bumped 2011′s winners model Gisele Bundchen and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to the number two spot this time. That couple brought in 72 million this year.
In third place, David and Victoria Beckham raked in 54 million dollars with his soccer earnings and her fashion empire.
The only unmarried couple on the list, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, took the fourth place spot with a combined total of 45 million dollars.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith wrapped up the top five, earning $40 million dollars last year.
Something tells us Bey and Jay will be number one on this list for many years to come.
What do you think of this list? Are you surprised Beyonce and Jay Z topped it?

So who exactly is DeVon Franklin, the handsome Hollywood Exec/Author/Motivational Speaker/Pastor who’s swept Meagan Good off her feet and (seemingly) inspired her image makeunder?
On the eve of their wedding, Necole Bitchie spoke to Devon by phone from his offices at Sony – where he’s the VP of Production at Columbia Pictures. For the Bay area native, there’s still another big moment in his life quickly approaching. This Sunday, he will make his debut with Oprah on her big Super Soul Sunday Show where they’ll discuss his book Produced By Faith – a guide on how to apply the ‘Hollywood system’ towards a more meaningful spiritual life.
Our conversation was intense. Meagan said she knew when she met him; he was to be her husband. Oprah said she knew after ten minutes that she needed to do a show with him. DeVon is passionate about God, about Meagan and about filling what he feels is a spiritual void missing in our generation.
