“I’m Not Your Friend, I’m Your Mother!” Mom Sells Daughter’s One Direction Tickets On Ebay As Punishment!
A woman in Sudney, Australia recently embarrassed the you-know-what out of her daughter on Ebay of all places after she got to the truth about her child’s recent indiscretions.
A user known as “tsfe” posted her daughter’s four tickets to see One Direction on Ebay this week after she found her daughter had been lying about creeping around with older guys. HEr description of what she was selling likely goes down in the parental hall of fame.
“THIS AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 ONE DIRECTION TICKETS IN SYDNEY OCTOBER 25th. You can thank my daughters self righteous and lippy attitude for their sale. See sweety? And you thought I was bluffing. I hope the scowl on your bitchy little friends faces when you tell them that your dad and i revoked the gift we were giving you all reminds you that your PARENTS are the ones that deserve love and respect more than anyone. And your silly little pack mentality of taking your parents for fools is one sadly mistaken. Anyhow. Your loss someone else’s gain who deserves them! THE TICKETS ARE SEATED IN ROW O section 57. REMEMBER AUCTION IS FOR ALL 4 TICKETS and will be sent registered post
…OH YOUR FRIENDS THOUGHT THAT A FEW PRANKS CALLS WOULD PUT ME OFF SELLING THE GIFT WE BOUGHT FOR THEM for YOUR BIRTHDAY because YOU all LIED to us about sleep overs so you could hang like little trollops at an older guys HOUSE????? Pffft!! I find it HIGHLY amusing that you girls think you invented this stuff. Tricks like this on OUR parents is how HALF of you were conceived …..And why a lot of your friends DONT have an address to send that Fathers day card to!!! I’m not your friend. I’m your MOTHER. And I am here to give you the boundaries that YOU NEED to become a functional responsible adult. You may hate me now….. But I don’t care. Its my job to raise a responsible adult..not nuture bad habits in my teen age child.”
If you know anything about pop culture, then you’re aware that One Direction is possibly the biggest group on the planet right now. For this girl and her friends to miss an opportunity like this is surely crushing her heart at this very moment.
The auction has been taken down leading us to believe the tickets have been sold, but you can still check out a screenshot over on PEOPLE.com.
Prayers go out to reality TV star Tami Roman who lost her mother earlier this week.
The “Basketball Wives” cast member has been requesting prayers all week for her mom who appeared to have been dealing an unknown illness. Just one month ago, Tami posted the photo above with her mother and the hasthtags “ #beatingiteveryday, #standingstrong, #claiminggoodhealth&longlife,” but unfortunately this week the battle came to an end. Tami broke the news on Instagram two days ago, saying:
Accompanying that post was caption that read, “My pain runs deep, my heart aches, my soul mourns – I have NEVER felt this way in my entire life. My mother is no longer with me and I may never be the same. Jesus…be with me and my daughters.”
Tami’s basketball wife sister Evelyn Lozada sent her condolences to her right-hand woman on Twitter, writing:
Sending love and prayers to @TamiRoman and her entire family on the passing of her mother. We love you and will always be here for you.

We’re sending our thoughts out to Tami and her daughters as well.
Jesus take the wheel! An overprotective parent in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is turning over a new leaf. This mom, worried about her Harvard-bound son’s social awkwardness took to Craiglist’s “casual encounters” section to find a young woman to take his virginity. And no, we are not lying! What’s the purpose of this, you may ask? Mom Dukes wants to turn him into a “cool college kid”. Her plan is: You, a 19/20-something will be given a pair of complimentary tickets to a concert. At the event, you will target her fine, 18-year-old son who is a varsity cross country team member and has “almost zero body fat”. Once you find him, girl you better spring into action.
The Craiglist’s ad continued stating:
You start talking to him during the concert and eventually pick him up. Ask him to take you somewhere after and ditch your friends. Then you seduce him and take his virginity. Keep dating him (and showing him different sex positions) til he goes to college and then let him go gently so he’ll have the confidence to date other girls once he’s there.
Oh, but before you apply to this mother’s advertisement remember, do not fall in love with her son!
Below is a picture of the actual Craiglist’s post.
What do you think? Did this mother go too far or is she just looking out for her son?
On her own since she was 15-years-old, Eva Fields was orphaned and supporting herself by her sixteenth birthday. “I was taking better care of myself than my elders were,” she admits. “But, I wasn’t making the right decisions.” By 17, she was pregnant with her second child and told she had tested positive for HIV. Thankfully, her son was born healthy, but she knew things were only going to get tougher from there. Instead of giving in to the fear and the pain, Eva chose to educate herself about HIV and AIDS. She focused on staying positive and helping others learn from her experiences and mistakes. Fields always believed she would never be able to have more children, but with medical supervision, she was able to conceive her third child, a healthy baby girl who was born HIV negative. Her story is powerful and a true inspiration to all women who have ever had to face an unthinkable diagnosis. In honor of National Women’s Health Week, we talked to Fields about protecting our bodies and our children and the importance of spreading awareness.
ESSENCE.com: You told your now-husband your status on your first real date. How courageous! Why did you decide to do it that way?
EVA FIELDS: It was scary, of course. Any time, as a woman, when you meet the one, you have those attractions and you don’t want to lose someone because of a societal stigma. Society as a whole puts a bad label on anyone who’s HIV positive. I just felt it was time to let him know and that if he cared about me enough he would either accept it or not. It was my responsibility as a woman and as an adult to let him know. We were on a lunch date and before he decided to take that first bite, I just told him. For me, it’s never been difficult to tell anyone my status. It’s difficult getting turned down and feeling rejected. That’s what makes it hard for anyone HIV positive wanting to date someone that’s HIV negative.
ESSENCE.com: What was his reaction?
FIELDS: He was like, “Okay.” Just like that. I asked him what he meant by “okay,” as I prepared to put my guard up, and then he said, “Okay. I’m educated. I have the real education, and I’m very educated on the subject.” I felt very blessed. In the past, I had come across people who were not educated and reacted terribly. I can’t blame them. Sometimes, as human beings, we fear the unknown.

Well, things seem to be coming together quite nicely for quarterback Robert Griffin III.
The Washington Redskins superstar made quite the noise in his rookie season with a quiet storm presence who took charge of the football field during the regular and post-season. Well, that is, of course, until he was badly injured and could no longer play.
But having been in the off season for some time, Griffin has had time to plan for something big: his wedding day.
According to his mother, Griffin plans to marry his fiancée Rebecca Liddicoat this July.
E! Online reports that RGIII’s mom told Washington D.C. television station WTTG that Liddicoat and Griffin will be jumping the broom on July 6th in Virginia.
Apparently, a wedding registry has been created at Bed, Bath & Beyond for the couple and it coincides with the July 6th date his mother revealed.
The couple has allegedly been together since high school and were engaged back in 2010. Griffin had his college teammate play the guitar while he made his speech in front of family and friends before getting down on one knee.
Maybe he’ll cut his hair in preparation for the ceremony. I mean…it’d be nice.
Congrats to the couple! Hopefully, the summer wedding will bring even more excitement to his game for the 2013-2014 football season!
While Rihanna’s 5.8 million Instagram followers may love her stream of racy pictures, there’s one fan that’s totally against it—her mom.
The Bajan singer, who recently canceled her tour date in Boston due to laryngitis, told Elle UK that her mother humbled her after seeing her Instagram feed.
“I’m not afraid of any person in this world, but my mother, I’m terrified of her,” said Rihanna. “She called me two days ago and reeled me in about two unclothed pictures [my pal] Melissa [Forde] put up on Instagram, a sneak peek from a photo book she’s making about me.”
You’ve got to check out what else she said over on Essence. Many have been wondering what Rihanna’s mom thinks about some of her antics…there you go!
As an adult, does your mom still put a little fear in you every now and then?
If you can believe it, we’re just a little over a month away from the anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death.
With that upon us, Lady O will be sitting down with Whitney’s mother, Cissy, in one of the few interviews she’s given since her daughter’s passing. Oprah interview Bobbi Kristina as well as Greg and Pat Houston, Whitney’s brother and sister-in law, respectively, not long after the passing of Whitney. While Cissy did participate in the Lifetime reality show, On Our Own, she hasn’t done much talking about what the last year has been like on her.
The date has not been released but it is expected to air within the first two weeks of February.
But that’s not all with OWN. Network president Erik Logan recently held a meeting with the media where he broke down the good progress OWN has made, primarily thanks to Oprah showing her face more on the channel with Next Chapter. They’ve also seen great strides in the ratings when new episodes of Master Class have aired. According to Logan their 2012 year end numbers were in the double digits, as reported by the NY Daily News.
Oprahhas quite a few stars lined up for interviews such as LL Cool J, Susan Sarandon and Alicia Keys (we already know you’ll be tuned in for that one). Sounds good!
Can you believe it’ll be one year since we lost Whitney? Will you be tuned in to Next Chapter featuring Cissy Houston?
Ten months after her son was killed, Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon Martin’s mother, says she’s ready for justice to be served in 2013. She spoke with ESSENCE.com about her first holiday season without Trayvon, her thoughts on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings, and her hopes for 2013:
This year has been bittersweet. The bitter part is that I lost my baby boy. The sweet part has been the show of support that we have received from our community and from the world. We are thankful.
This is our first holiday season without Trayvon, and I have to admit, I’m having a difficult time. I’m an emotional rollercoaster. Trayvon loved the holidays, especially Christmas and Thanksgiving. He always looked forward to those holidays. But while I am sad I’m reminded that I have another son that I’m trying to help get through not having his younger brother around.
Sybrina continues to ve a very strong woman. You can read the rest of the touching message over at ESSENCE.
