This has absolutely nothing to do with O.S.A.M.s. Or maybe it does? Seeing as it’s one of the last posts this 2009 Women’s History Month, perhaps it’s a conduit (or excuse) for re-evaluating: 1.) every bad (and good) romantic relationship I’ve ever been in, and 2.) why I’m a woman who’s always been lousy at……..sharing cookies?
I’ll buy me some cookies quick, fast and in a hurry, and Neiman Marcus at Lenox has the best chocolate chip cookies EV-ER. As I had a doctor’s appointment Monday morning that required I not eat for the 8 hours beforehand, I took myself to lunch there for succulent shrimp salad and some of those N(eedless) M(arkup) cookies immediately after that doctor let me go. On my way out the door, I saw Steve Harvey looking at ties. Later that same day, I saw him on Oprah. Wednesday morning, I got a chain email about said appearance on Oprah. See how exciting life really is in The A?
While I ain’t never gonna be mad at a black man truly in love with a black woman (‘specially in ‘Lanta), I was kinda skeptical at this particular black man (of all folk) going on Oprah (of all shows) trying to tell black women howta make that (of all things) happen. Here’s why:
Jennifer Hudson stopped by the Oprah Winfrey Show Friday (February 27, 2009) for Oprah’s Friday Live show. Jennifer spoke about her Super Bowl performance, the Grammys, her fiance David (Punk) Otunga and her upcoming Tour with Robin Thicke.

Jennifer did, however state that she’s “in a good place” and prays everyday before performing “If This Isn’t Love” from her Grammy winning album.
Ludacris did an interview lately where he was asked if he’d ever made it on Oprah. Duh! Yeah! We all know about the Oprah Winfrey fall out! Don’t we?? In case you forgot…Ludacris appeared on Oprah way back in 2005 with the cast of CRASH. Luda appeared as a cast member but Ms. Winfrey didn’t like the fact that he cussed and used the word “nigga” in his rhymes. At the time, Oprah had a policy of not promoting rap or rappers on her show, but since then has had both Diddy and Kanye posted up on the couch. Luda explains the issue and states that they’ve made peace, but he has yet to be invited back to the show.
On a lighter note…Luda, Nelly and Snoop tore down the stage at the TRL finale. Check out the performance: Continue Reading…
Just as we all thought…the couple I’ve dubbed “Operry” is actually not a couple at all. The union is fake but the pics are real. Oprah was merely helping Tyler get a few flix out since he felt that he was being ignored by the paparazzi. Continue Reading…
