I’m starting think there may need to be some written guidelines on social networking dating & relationships. Seriously. Think about it. Things are so much different online and off and people approach
Personally, I’ve always had a rule about NEVER dating anyone I met online. First of all, umma need for someone, anyone, around him that knows me to at least warn him about me first.
In my logic, if I meet you online, most times there’s not that instant buffer of a common personal “connection,” no person to tell you (or I) the “real deal” about you and your shitty personality, so we each have to go off of what we read (or see) and is that really a fair assessment of who anyone really is? Hmmmmm?
If you DO choose to meet someone online, are there any online rules? What are the dos and don’ts when it comes to Facebook relationship status etiquette?
There’s been discussion groups for high school students, where they were guided in understanding the proper ways to handle Facebook relationships but what about all you GROWN folks?
Well, in case you feel lost in the land of Facebook relationship etiquette check out a few top dos and don’ts gathered during a recent online poll. Continue Reading…
TLC’s Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins appeared on CNN’s “Human Factor” last night for an in-depth interview with CNN chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
In the Human Factor, CNN profiles survivors who have overcome the odds. Confronting a life obstacle – injury, illness or other hardship – they tapped their inner strength and found resilience they didn’t know they possessed.
T-boz, 41, lead singer of the award winning female hip/hop group TLC, shares her story about her struggles with sickle-cell anemia and the brain tumor she had removed a few years ago.
Most people know me as an actress, singer or member of the ’90s musical group TLC. What many people don’t know is that through all of this, I quietly battled sickle-cell disease. Since the age of 7, I have been in and out of hospitals. Then, in 2006, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Many physicians refused to remove the tumor due to my sickle-cell related complications.
These experiences have taught me, and I want everyone to know, that you can be a survivor, even when it looks like you’re against all odds. When I went to the first doctor to talk about my brain tumor, he wasn’t getting into my livelihood, my life.
The decisions about how to treat the tumor were not what would happen to me and my quality of life. You need to learn about yourself, research and take notes. Know the questions to ask. When you’re stressed and going through something, it can be hard to do, so it’s important to learn what you can and prepare.

Ciara’s final participation in the festivities of Paris Fashion week consisted of her dressing up in her best Vampire-like attire.
CiCi attended former French Vogue Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld’s Blood themed party, joined by Kanye, who also wore all black, and Riccardo Tisci, designer of the “Watch The Throne” album cover, went all the way with a gruesome with a “bloodied” mouth.
CiCi shed her phony pony and opted for a vampish sleek style. She rocked a blood-red lip with a sheer Dracula-style cape to round up her ghoulish character.
And yes…. Ciara even showed a bit of TOE even though y’all roasted her about ’em…. Oh.. and she also knows what y’all are sayin’ about her long lean piglets!
Welp… since she’s clearly all good with the jokes, here’s a hilarious ODE to Ciara’s toes…. Continue Reading…
