The media mogul is one of my many inspirations and seeing her with a pan in her hand,
even though I know she handed it to the help after the flash, inspired me to cook a lil something today too (one day only).
There are many things I’m thankful for and since today is designated for us all to “give thanks,” I’ll share some of them with you.
2012 has been a year of discovery for me, both personally and professionally. Life is crazy and it can seriously suck at times, and while things absolutely NEVER turn out the way I want them to, they always turn out for the best.
I now realize that sometimes unanswered prayers can actually be God’s blessings.
There have been many a day that I wanted to walk away from blogging. It ain’t easy being me. Trust. I’m not perfect and have never professed to be. Continue Reading…
Toni Braxton performed at The Paley Center for Media’s Annual Los Angeles Benefit at The Rooftop Of The Lot in West Hollywood, California last week (October 22, 2012).

Braxton, who filed for bankruptcy prior to her appearance on the popular daytime talk show, details how she was “reprimanded” by the media mogul for her lavish spending habits and basically made to feel like sh*t during the interview.

Regarding her life changing career move, Miss O drops another classic “Oprah-ism” and states:
“When you have reached the peak of a mountaintop, which is where I was with the Oprah show, you have absolutely no worries,” she explains of the ambitious undertaking.
“I’d been in the right space at the right time, and I’d done that in the best way possible for 25 years. But you have two choices: You can come down from the mountain and spend the rest of your days thinking it was so beautiful there, or you can create a vision, look upward, see the next mountain, and start the climb all over again.”

Apparently we got things mixed up… instead of launching his own network, Perry will be partnering with the OWN network, Oprah Winfrey’s cable network.

OWN announced earlier today (Monday, October 1, 2012) that they have formed an exclusive partnership with Tyler Perry and Perry also announced the deal to his fans via his email distribution list. Continue Reading…

The pair met at Raymond’s Atlanta estate where he’s built a huge playground complete with tree house for his two sons. He joked to Oprah that he invited her because he wanted her to see his “crib,” but the interview was clearly a bit of PR crisis management and who else to call to clean up your image except “Mother O”?
As expected, Usher touched on a few of the things I’d already told you about… like his cheating on his ex-wife Tameka with one of her bridesmaids (click HERE to meet Maya Fox-Davis) and that bizarre Berlin incident where he stomped off the stage (click HERE if you missed that).
