Men can be vocal about what they want from their significant others, sometimes expecting them to anticipate their needs or indulge their desires. Yet, they don’t always express what they would like to do with their partners. So, here’s a list of things that your man might like to do with you, in regards to entertainment, sex, and hobbies, that you might not have thought of.
When love seems eternal, some men like to signify that by having the both of you mark one another with a token of affection, like an image or name written on the other person’s body. The latter idea is kind of a terrible idea, so even if your man doesn’t want you to tattoo his lips on your hips, or put his initials on your body, a lot of men simply enjoy getting tattoos with their significant other and hitting up the tattoo parlor together for a quick thrill.
Who says you have to go to some stuffy industry conference to network? It’s summertime! The hot sun and long days get everyone – including professionals you need to know – out of the house. Give yourself a break. And while you’re in a good mood, make an effort to get to know the people around you. You may be surprised who’s getting their life next you.
Here are a few events to get your summer plans started.
There will always be debates on how to show a man you’re worthy of him keeping you around by doing certain things. I’m not too sure what works and what doesn’t work in terms of making a man stick around and showing him you’re not just wifey material but should be his wife. What I do know is, you should’t knock it until you try it and do what you feel is appropriate because every man– and woman — is different. Check out some of the most notable “make him keep you” advice around. What’s worked for you and what hasn’t?
Now, we don’t cover sports too much around these parts (well, not unless its for eye candy purposes) but this time it’s about Kobe Bryant and well, he’s always newsworthy.
If you happen to be a sportsnista (I totally am) and in particular, a basketball fan, you know that the Los Angeles Lakers are in an uphill battle trying to make last place in the Western conference just to make the playoffs. Their leader and franchise plyer, Kobe Bryant, has taken it upon himself to make sure the team gets all the wins they need to make it.
But Friday night, that all came to a screeching halt. The LAkers were playing the Golden State Warriors and Bryant was being guarded by Harrison Barnes when he was fouled. He was making a move to the basket when he heard something pop; after asking Barnes if he kicked him in the knee – to which BArnes responded no – Bryant knew something was wrong. After making the two foul shots, he hobbled off the court for the rest of the game.
So what’s the prognosis? The 34 year old living legend has a torn Achilles and his season is over. It will take about 6-9 months to heal and even then, he might not ever be the same. The chances of Kobe coming back to play at such a high level after a shattering injury at age 35 is in many ways, impossible.
Later that evening, a very frustrated “Mamba,” as he’s known to fans and enemies alike, took to his Facebook page for a vent session:
“This is such BS! All the training and sacrifice just flew out the window with one step that I’ve done millions of times! The frustration is unbearable. The anger is rage. Why the hell did this happen ?!? Makes no damn sense. Now I’m supposed to come back from this and be the same player Or better at 35?!? How in the world am I supposed to do that?? I have NO CLUE. Do I have the consistent will to overcome this thing? Maybe I should break out the rocking chair and reminisce on the career that was. Maybe this is how my book ends. Maybe Father Time has defeated me…Then again maybe not!”
Wow. You know, Kobe Bryant isn’t one of the most well-liked players in the NBA but most respect him for his work ethic and his insane ability to play the game of basketball. It is unfortunate that his season has ended this way. What is even more sad to see is the number of people who reacted on social media in such an excited way because a player they don’t like was injured. Now, I’m no Kobe fan either but to wish ill on a person or be excited that they can’t do their job anymore isn’t right.
Well, it’s time to see what the Lakers are really made of!

Don’t Mess With A Man’s Wife: NFL Star Vince Wilfork Slams Former Teammate For Calling His Wife Ugly
People really don’t have any filter these days, huh? Or maybe they’re looking for “shock value.”
According to USA Today, former New England Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson appeared on a Houston radio station earlier this week to talk sports. One of the hosts decided it’d be fun to ask Johnson, retired since 2005, which player he thought had the ugliest wife. Instead of laughing it off and not answering the question, Johnson replied:
“This is a big, big man and this guy had his way with the Texans this season,” Johnson replied. “He won’t hear this. Vince Wilfork.”
Now, did you really just call out a man’s wife because you didn’t think he’d find out? Wilfork is a pretty popular player but even if he weren’t, something like this is bound to get back to a person. Not only did he hear it, Wilfork had something to say about it. After first directly tweeting to Johnson that he’s barking up the wrong tree because he sees and hears everything, he then tweeted a picture of a note he wrote on his phone:
Although he did snap on Johnson, and rightfully so, it was also great to see Wilfork immediately defend his wife. The comment was absolutely unnecessary. Disrespecting a man’s wife just because you have nothing better to do will result in you catching a beatdown.
Johnson, who has seemingly deactivated his Twitter account, apologized before doing so:
“I just made a huge error in judgement and want to apologize to Vince and his wife for comments I made earlier today on a Houston radio show. Vince and his family are outstanding people who I have admired since they arrived in NE.I learned a big lesson today and feel terrible.”
Question: Would he have felt as bad had it not gotten back to Wilfork and if people weren’t attacking him on Twitter about his rudeness? The answer would probably be “no.”
You just cannot let some people get near a microphone.
These are the times we need to applaud the video vixens.
Former video vixen Melyssa Ford, who has long since turned in her video attire, recently joined a major real estate company. According to Allhiphop.com, Ford has joined Blu Realty Group, a full-service luxury real estate company in Nww York. She’s joining the team as a real estate broker so you know she’s going to use her contacts in the entertainment world to bring big dollars to the company.
Blu Realty is a very serious player in the real estate industry. Owned by Chadad and Moshe Balalo, Blu Realty closed over $100 million in property sales last year. That’s huge for a somewhat small company.
Ford, who has a degree in Forensic Psychology, took an intense three month class at Blu Realty which included training from a real estate teacher and mentoring from the owners.
Chadad Balalo is very eager to get started:
“We are extremely excited to have Melyssa on board with Blu Realty. Ms. Ford will add a high net worth clientele base to our already diverse client list in New York.”
Ford has actually already help them close a $15 million deal in New York. It looks like she is ready to take this new career by storm!
Do you have any side hustles? Have you switched careers completely to possibly fulfill a new passion?
Well, it seems like Ahmad Rashad just isn’t the marrying type.
According to Gossip Extra, the longtime sportscaster and his wife, Sale Johnson, are on their way to divorce court. This marriage marks the fourth for Rashad and second for Johnson. She was once married to Johnson & Johnson billionaire and Jets Owner, Woody Johnson. The two were married in 2005.
According to the report, the couple has actually been living apart for quite some time now. The two haven’t filed for for divorce yet but instead are working out the financial difference before they begin making the divorce process official.
Johnson gained quite a bit of money from her divorce from Woody Johnson; it’s estimated that she received more than $100 million in the settlement. When word first got out that Johnson and Rashad were married, people joked that Johnson was now Rashad’s “sugar mama.”
Sale’s camp is allegedly leaking the information. They say the reason for the split is Rashad’s friendships with athletes Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods. As we all know, Woods has a very murky history with the ladies while Jordan has supposedly been dragging him to a restaurant called Rachel’s quite often for…”dinner.”
From Rashad’s camp, the rumor is that they’re just not in love anymore.
Hopefully, this won’t turn into an even bigger public mess, but when camps are somewhat openly putting the information out there, we might hear more about this relationship than we thought we’d ever want to know.
We’ll be keeping an eye out on this one.
Well, it was good while it lasted. I guess. Maybe.
The NY Daily News is reporting that radio personality Tom Joyner and his wife, fitness guru and ESPN correspondent Donna Richardson, are no longer together. A source has told them that Joyner and Richardson split up weeks ago in a “mutual but not exactly amicable” decision. They’ve been married for 12 years.
The source also added that there were “outside parties” involved which lends to this divorce. One can only assume that “outside parties” are another man or woman, suggesting that there was infidelity. This could get ugly, folks.
Unfortunately, I’m not able to hear the Tom Joyner Morning Show where I live anymore but I’d heard that he hadn’t been mentioning Donna’s name on the show as often as he used to. At one point, Tom would add a “You know, Donna and I…” to just about every sentence. They’ve always come across as a really good couple so it is unfortunate to hear that it has come down to this.
The couple have no children and neither Tom’s nor Donna’s reps returned calls or emails from the Daily News.
Did you think they’d make it or were you one of the people who didn’t really see how the two of them got together in the first place?
Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Javon Belcher was pronounced dead early Saturday morning after taking the life of his girlfriend and then committing suicide.
Details are still somewhat sketchy but Yahoo! Sports reports that around 7am, Belcher and his girlfriend Kasandra Perkins got into an argument. While the reason for the argument remains unclear, it resulted in Belcher shooting Perkins multiple times. She was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.
Belcher then proceeded to Arrowhead Stadium’s team facility, home of the Kansas City Chiefs, where he ran into the team’s General Manager Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel, along with at least one other employee. The facility was evacuated and locked down by police after Perkins’ mom, who witnessed her daughter being shot, notified them of what had happened in the home. The GM and coach attempted to talk Belcher out of hurting anyone else but he then shot himself in the head.
A police spokesman said Belcher thanked the coaches and staff for everything they’d done for him. They continued to try to talk to him but he walked in the opposite direction and that was when they heard the gunshot.
The rest of the team was called to the main facility to be made aware of what had happened. In a statement prepared by Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt, he expressed the following:
“The entire Chiefs family is deeply saddened by today’s events, and our collective hearts are heavy with sympathy, thoughts and prayers for the families and friends affected by this unthinkable tragedy. We sincerely appreciate the expressions of sympathy and support we have received from so many in the Kansas City and NFL communities, and ask for continued prayers for the loved ones of those impacted.
“We will continue to fully cooperate with the authorities and work to ensure that the appropriate counseling resources are available to all members of the organization.”
What makes the story even more tragic is that Belcher and Perkins had a three month old daughter. Thankfully, she is safe and is with a relative.
The Kansas City Chiefs have a home game on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers; according to sources, the league has told the Panthers to travel to Kansas City as though the game will be played.
Part of the job of being a celebrity is that you’re often photographed when you’re out. However, some people just seem to find their way into entertainment news way too often. But you also have those who, although you see their picture taken, you don’t often hear much else from them…unless they want you to.
