I had to disappear for a minute yesterday and caught a ton of flack from a few folks but it’s OK. My girl Monica’s song “Don’t Take It Personal” made me put everything in perspective. This old school joint came on the A-pod while I was on my mini road trip and I promise you…I had to hit repeat about 3 times! Like for real…sometimes a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do…Don’t take that sh*t so personal! and speaking of personal. Some larger than life bloggers are really *cough* feeling themselves these days! They take and take without giving credit, then whine about not being acknowledged as a source. I just want to put it out there that there are several blogs that I personally read on a regular basis….and yours is NOT one of em. It ain’t that serious. Get over yourself…
TI has a new show and it looks promising. I’ve always thought that we all should take some time and mentor somebody who needs it. Not necessarily have a reality show to film it, but TI sets a good example here for the masses.
As he begins counting down the days to his impending March 2009 sentencing for weapons charges, Grammy-winning superstar T.I. finds himself at a remarkable crossroads. At the very apex of his career, he’s facing up to 30 years of jail time for an arrest stemming from his earlier life. However, as part of a deal worked out between his lawyers and the federal government, if he completes an amazing 1000 hours of community service during the year ending this March, that sentence may be reduced. At 27, finding himself at the very high- and low-point of his adult life, he’s seeking redemption in helping others avoid the mistakes he made. In the new docu-series “T.I.’s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go” cameras follow T.I.’s efforts to save himself by saving others. “T.I.’s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go” is a moving title. Each week, the title will change to reflect the amount of time left to his sentencing. The final episode will air shortly after T.I.’s fate is revealed. In order to communicate his message, he has to give each teenager a tough love lesson in life and show them the consequences of what could happen if they continue down the wrong path.
T.I.’s Road To Redemption: 45 Days To Go” will premiere on Tuesday, February 10 at 9:00PM (ET/PT). Subsequent episodes will air in the show’s regular timeslot at 9:30pm (ET/PT).
Ok…somebody shoot me now! Oprah Winfrey, known for being frank and open about her personal relationships and bad choices in men back in the day has been outed for using Crack cocaine. “Outed” may be a poor choice of words though since the television diva has confessed on many occasions to using drugs but she’s never revealed what her drug of choice was.
From a 1995 episode of her show, Oprah revealed:
“In my 20’s, I’d done this drug and I know exactly what you are talking about.” She said the drug use occurred while she was an anchorwoman on a television news show.
“It’s my life’s great big secret. It was such a secret because–I realize (with) the public person I have become–if the story ever were revealed, the tabloids would exploit it and what a big issue it would be.”
She went on to explain, “But I was involved with a man in my 20s who introduced me to the same drug that you’ve been talking about and, like Patrice, I always felt that the drug itself is not the problem but that I was addicted to the man.” She admitted: “I can’t think of anything I wouldn’t have done for that man.”
O’s Crack partner and toxic love interest Randolph Cook, has decided to write a book about their relationship and accuses Oprah of introducing HIM to cocaine.
“We smoked at least a couple of times a week. Sometimes we would smoke up until her limo was waiting to take her to the studio to perform her show…”
