Hi guys! I’m back! Finally getting back the strength to blog. My mum regularly commented on my blog and I really miss her. What better way to come back than with Jennifer Hudson, a person who has shown such tremendous strength in the face of debilitating tragedy. Jennifer and her fiancé, David Otunga were featured on Own’s Next Chapter last night in a very candid interview with Oprah Winfrey. During the interview, Jennifer talked about her family murders and whether she’s forgiven William Balfour as well as her weight loss and feeling the pressures of Hollywood. Meanwhile, David chatted about whether or not she was sexier before the weight loss, wanting a daughter and the two revealed that they are planning to get married within the next two years.
Check out some excerpts:
On If She’s More Comfortable At This Size:
I’ve always been comfortable in my skin. I like the skin that I’m in. I don’t ever feel like I was uncomfortable. I honestly don’t. Yes, at times I feel sexier. At times. [when asked if she feels prettier:] I was always cute.
David On if He Thinks She’s Sexier at a Size 6 or 16:
You know honestly, it’s pretty much the same. It hasn’t really changed that much to be honest. She’s a little more confident now and that kind of sticks out but to me, but I liked her then too. Very much so. I kind of like the curves. I love the way she looks now but I’ll be honest, I enjoy the curves.
One of the things that’s sexiest to me is when she’s doing motherly things. It’s just like, it’s a complete different side. (more…)
I know I’m not the only one who has often wondered why Halle Berry has a difficult time with relationships. As hot as she is, you’d think a man would do everything in his power to make things work with her. In last year’s September issue of Vogue magazine, she revealed that she realized we are not meant to go the distance with everybody. She is currently dating French actor Olivier Martinez, who she met on the set of “Dark Tide”. Although they’ve been getting pretty serious, Halle recently revealed that the traditional form of marriage is not for her, and she won’t be getting married again.
“I wish I had known then that I was not the marrying kind. It would have saved me a lot of time, heartache and grief over the years.
I made all the wrong choices when it came to love. I have been an idiot. But, now, it is like a gift to myself – seeing more clearly and making better decisions. One thing was unavoidable. My father left us when I was young and that did affect my life. If I had a good father in my life, growing up, then I do not think I would have made the mistakes I made. I would not have been lost in love. (more…)
Tyler Perry was on the Oprah show Wednesday night and he opened up about being physically and sexually abused three times before he even reached the age of 10. I think it takes alot of guts to come out with something like this. No one would just volunteer to put themselves out there with such a sad story. I think he’s doing it with the hope of changing lives and showing people that there’s always hope, even after such tragedy. For that alone, I think he’s a Shujaa!
During the hour long segment, he revealed that his father once beat him so bad that he blanked out for a few days: (more…)
Forbes Magazine has released their annual 100 Most Powerful Celebrities list. #1 is no surprise…Oprah Winfrey. Last year she took a backseat to Angelina Jolie at #2. News that this coming season of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” will be her last helped the self-made billionaire garner more media attention than any other member of the Celebrity 100. Her Harpo production company, which spawned the careers of Dr. Phil, Rachel Ray and Dr. Oz, will introduce interior designer Nate Berkus this fall. Months later, the list’s top-earner will add the lifestyle-themed Oprah Winfrey Network in partnership with Discovery Communications to her media empire.

Yeah so they’re still trying to convince us. IMO she should have kept quiet about it. You do not owe anyone an explanation about your sexual orientation. That and the pic that comes to mind every time I see them together is just all types of WRONG!!! 🙂
The thing [is], if we were gay, we would tell you. We would so tell you. We wouldn’t try to keep that a secret because there’s nothing wrong with being gay. So if we were, we would tell you. The truth of the matter is we’re not. It’s hard enough for me to get a date on a Saturday night as it is.”
Gayle continued, “This isn’t a rumor I’m trying to continue to explore, but no there’s nothing, there’s nothing wrong with it. I love that question. That never bothers me because it’s so silly.”
