Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor writer, director and producer, Tyler Perry recently paid a visit to The Steve Harvey Show. During his visit, Steve and Tyler discussed his many accolades and accomplishments as well as plans for the future. When asked what he hasn’t accomplished yet, but hopes to accomplish in the near future, Tyler revealed that he’s just about ready to be a father.
“More than anything I think that it’s fatherhood. I know I would be a great father. I don’t want to work this hard. I don’t want to have all of this and not leave it to my children,” Tyler expressed as the audience smiled and offered approving nods.
He also said that he realizes his current schedule would probably make parenting difficult.
“I also know that as hard as I’m working, doing twenty hours per day, now is not the time. Right now I’m enjoying what I’m doing. I’m enjoying the work. I’m enjoying being a bachelor, so eventually I’ll get there,” he continued.
You can probably guess that tell-it-like-it-is Steve wasn’t going to let him off the hook that easily. He humorously reminded Tyler that he’s not some young cat in his twenties with a whole lot of time to waste.
“Now, we done talked about this before. You don’t got all this time you keep thinking you got,” Steve said.
“Listen, I’m 43, so two more years. By 45 you know who the hell you are, right? You’ve really settled in at 45 so I think two more years,” Tyler said, attempting to bargain with big brother Steve.
Of course, Steve continued to poke fun at him.
“When the boy is 15 and you 60…” Steve said before looking at the floor, allowing his words to settle.
“I’ll hire someone to take him to the basketball court. That’s what I’ll have to do,” Tyler responded before the two shared in what appeared to be a good laugh.

‘I’m Like, I Cant Start Crying At The Dance:’ Diddy Talks Getting Emotional During Recent Father-Daughter Ball
Earlier this week, the adorable photos of Sean “Diddy” Combs and his adorable twin daughters D’Lila and Jessie, looking Easter Sunday sharp hit the web. The captions that accompanied the photos revealed that Diddy and his girls would be attending their first daddy-daughter dance, which Diddy revealed that he was totally excited about. The 43-year-old hip hop mogul recently paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he chatted it up about fatherhood and how it has changed him. Check out some of what he had to say below.
On relocating to Los Angeles to be closer to the kiddies:
“I’m officially bi-coastal… I moved out here here now. My son goes to UCLA, all my kids live out here now. I have six kids. Clap for my six kids and I would like for you to clap for me because I pay for all of their tuition. My oldest son [Quincy] works for my network, Revolt, and he’s an aspiring singer. My son below him, Justin, he is at UCLA red-shirted, so hopefully this year he will hit the field. And then I have a son, Christian, who is 14 and three girls who are 6, long story.”
On getting a bit teary-eyed during his first father-daughter dance:
“It was my first father-daughter dance with the twins. They are fun but they will wear you out and then it makes you go home and give your wife or the mother of your children a hug and a kiss and some money and a car or something. Like, I was looking at the clock and it’s like, you know, it starts at , and its like 7 o’clock and I’m looking at the clock and I’m worn out and I’m like ‘I don’t know how I am going to make it to 9 and they’re dancing like me times a hundred. If you thought I was dancing fast there, it’s like little girls are just screaming and jumping on your back and it’s just so intense.
It’s been a part of my evolution, I had my teary-eyed moment. I’m like, I can’t start crying at the dance, I don’t want to embarrass my daughters. I’m going through something right now that no money, no success or no accolades that I’ve gotten can ever measure up to being able to enjoy the beauty of my kids, especially my daughters.”
On the twins being a handful:
“It’s just a little bit harder trying to watch twins. And they’re identical twins so it’s just like … [points side-to-side]. And they don’t really stick together, they actually go opposite ways. So I’m just like running around.”
On how he’s changed since having children:
To be honest, I work very hard for my kids to enjoy a great life and I make no apologies for being able to provide them with experiences that I’ve worked hard to experience. For me, I’ve just started to grow up and it’s been a little late. When you grow up in entertainment and you’re not working on or not really following any rules, once you have kids, [that changes.] I think for me, it was having girls because the boys could fall down the stairs and everything is going to be alright but the girls, it’s like a whole different line of questioning and focus. It really just makes you face reality. It’s just been great for me.
One thing that’s difficult to deny is that Diddy loves his kiddies!

I’m not old enough to remember when Vanessa Williams became the first black Miss America, but I do remember when “Save the Best for Last” was the jam. And now Vanessa’s daughter Jillian Hervey has just released her first hit, “Treat Me Like Fire.” And she’s already 23.
From Necole Bitchie
I used to love some me some Allen Iverson back in the day, but what is going on with him nowadays? Like Terrell Owens, he has a lot of downtime on his hands this year which has given him more time to spend with his family.
Earlier this week, he was spotted with his estranged wife Tawanna and their five kids at the Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos. Iverson’s Brady Bunch, who range in age from 2 to 15 years old, looked to be having a good time with their daddy as they enjoyed the indoor rides that the water park had to offer.

Kenny Anderson and Spinderella
Before he was out here dogging Tami Akbar (aka, Tami Roman) during their married years, Kenny Anderson was involved with everybody’s favorite female DJ, Spinderella (sorry Solange). The two have a daughter together named Christenese, better known as Christy. The young lady wound up appearing on an episode of “My Super Sweet Sixteen” on MTV. Thankfully, she wasn’t as trifling as most of the kids who end up on that show. Christy is Spinderella’s first and only child, but the second of Kenny’s seven children.

When James Brown was alive, he had several brushes with the law. Now, the music legend’s daughter, Venisha Brown, is proving that the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. She is being held in Richmond County jail after being accused of stealing a vehicle in Augusta and injuring her boss outside a bank in Augusta, GA.
Venisha is being charged with theft by taking a motor vehicle in Richmond County and is being held for North Augusta authorities, Richmond County sheriff’s Investigator Billy Dixon said Tuesday.
North Augusta Public Safety has issued warrants against Brown for possession of a stolen vehicle, leaving the scene of an accident and first-degree assault and battery.
Police were called to the intersection of West and Pine Grove avenues in North Augusta about 9 a.m. Monday, where they found Hope Ellis Campbell, 46, of Grovetown, with injuries.
Campbell told officers she had spotted her employee, Brown, in a Chevrolet Suburban stolen from St. Stephen Ministries on Greene Street on Sunday and was trying to gain control of the vehicle when she was injured.
Campbell told officers that she reached into the sport utility vehicle to take the keys but that Brown accelerated, dragging Campbell into and over the hood of another vehicle parked near the Suburban.
Richmond County deputies recovered the SUV about 1 a.m. Tuesday at 13th Street and Walton Way.
About two hours later, deputies were called to an altercation in the 500 block of Broad Street, where they found Brown arguing with another woman.
The Godfather of Soul died in 2006, and he didn’t leave any money to his six or more children. He was never close to his kids and reportedly was adamant that they wouldn’t benefit from his fortune when he died. Instead, he wanted all of the money to pay for education for poor kids. However, his will was bitterly contested in court and, in 2009, a settlement was reached which reportedly awarded some money to his wives and children. It’s not clear how much Venisha received, if anything. Regardless, times can’t be that tough that she would steal a car from a ministry that serves the low income and homeless HIV/AIDS community. What a shame.

When it comes to identifying the first influential person in our lives, many of us credit our mothers. After all, she’s the women capable of doing everything—keeping her household together, taking care of all her children, making sure the bills are paid and preparing healthy meals—all while maintaining a career and keeping herself well put together. She’s the master of balance, a ‘Rockmom’ of sorts. This term coined by June Ambrose, who is the quintessential example of a ‘Rockmom’ describes how being a mother doesn’t mean one has to sacrifice her personal style while conquering the world and taking care of her children. As we prepare to honor and show appreciation for all the ‘Rockmoms’ in our lives, let’s take a look at some of the most stylish celebrity mothers who rock out in motherhood.
Cute Kid Alert: Juelz Jr. Kicks it With a Pregnant Kimbella and Big Juelz, and Violet Nash Is All Smiles
Awwwww! We love showing off the cutest celeb babies. While relaxing on the beach with mom (“Love and Hip Hop’s Kimbella) and dad (Juelz Santana of course), little Juelz Jr. soaked up the sun, fell asleep while sitting up (SOOOOO cute) and opted out of delicious baby food and treats for sand. That’s okay though, we’ll just hope they stopped that immediately after the adorable picture was taken. And we haven’t seen Kimbella in so long, so it’s nice to see her actually getting to have family time with her man. And she looks great preggers! And the father and son time picture is too cute for words. Check out more of lil’ man below (and above) in all his cute-ness as he’s gotten bigger.
And in other cute kid alerts, we couldn’t pass up on the chance to show off the very photogenic Violet Nash, the baby girl of Christina Milian and The-Dream. We’ve been saying since her birth that she she looks exactly like The-Dream, and she’s MAD adorable! If you’ve ever seen her out with mom (or just look at the above picture), you’ll know that she has a lot of personality and some big ‘ol cheeks we’d love to pinch! Check her out in all her smiling glory and as she quenches her thirst.
