Word around the web is. . . “T.V. Star” Kim Kardashian is getting more than comfortable with Rapper/Producer Kanye West. From what I hear, the last time Kim and boyfriend Reggie Bush split; it was because of a few suspicious texts conversations between Kim and Kanye. Wow!! Now recently some photos of Kim and Kanye hit the web and after all of this confusion going on, I would call it less than perfect timing. So far neither Kim, Reggie nor Kanye has commented on this issue which makes things even more suspenseful. Remember I don’t make the stories, I just state the facts…PEACE

It seems like the media only feeds off of negativity, and the positive always gets the backseat. Most of the stories and scandals that are reported in the media are really one sided. For example, the Sandra Bullock and Jesse James split has been getting a lot of attention, but for the most part all I’ve been hearing is how Jesse’s cheating ways lead to the break up and his mistresses’ side of the story. But they failed to report how well Sandra is handling the issue. I saw an interview she did with ET last night; and I was amazed about how mature and calm she was about it, I guess it didn’t get great ratings but what’s more important? I think she had a great attitude and that is what is keeping her going, and with the stereo-type of females being bitter after they’ve been cheated on is something that she doesn’t fit into. To quote her, she says “All I know is that I did the best I can do to be a good wife to him, and if that’s the type of women he prefers, then he can have them.” Now that’s powerful, that says a lot about her character and she is definitely able to keep her composure. I hope Jesse finds the lord and learns how to practice fidelity, but until then I’ll keep you guys updated….peace

Last week was International Women’s Week (8th of March to the 12th ),  so I figured what better way to celebrate than learn a little about the woman who just wrote, “I Am An Emotional Creature”.  The book is written by Eve Ensler and just made its debut coinciding with the yearly V-day event that Eve Ensler founded. V-day occurs right around Valentines Day and is a global movement to stop violence against women and girls around the world.   On the website they mention that for V-Day, teens and adults alike volunteer and organize various events “ produce(ing) annual benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues, A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer, and screenings of the V-Day documentary Until the Violence Stops.   Eve Ensler is most highly regarded for her creation of the Vagina Monologues which is a play performed by schools like Berkeley High, numerous colleges and women’s groups across the nation.  The Vagina Monologues feature various women talking about their vaginas and the emotions that arise around that body part.  Also, each year the play adds a different woman character from around the world speaking about her womanhood and vagina.  Last year the new character was a woman representing the Congo, a place where women are at risk for rape or genital mutilation (their genitals are sometimes sewn or damaged in other ways) and do not have much say in what happens to their bodies.  Although I have not yet had a chance to read Eve Ensler’s new book I did read an excerpt from it.  The excerpt is a slam poem all about what it means to be an emotional creature, to be a teenage girl. It can be found here, “http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eve-ensler/i-am-an-emotional-creatur_b_468801.html”.

According to yourgossipfix.com, Karrine Steffans husband, Darius McCrary, has called their marriage to an end. Allegedly Darius McCrary sent a bouquet of flowers to her along with the divorce papers! Now I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing? I mean Darius stated that he felt they weren’t compatible with each other. But on the other hand Karrine states that he only did it because he had cheated on her with someone else. I feel that if either of those were the case they shouldn’t have wasted their time getting back together if they knew that it wasn’t going to work.
So personally I feel that the divorce papers with the flowers was sort of a good way to end things. Instead of him going about saying, you do this wrong or you don’t do this, I need this! He ended up taking it in a calm direction in just having her sign the papers. Also, not only that, he said that he gave her the flowers because he wanted her to know that he will always care for her, even though they are not together. I can imagine that she was very livid because she probably thought he was trying to be funny and that it was a joke. I would think that too (flowers and divorce papers? Are you serious)!
But all in all I think that this situation was somewhat handled in a good way, but another way could be communication on how each other feel. Maybe if this would of happened it would have been approached the best way possible. In addition, from what I know they were both mature adults. In mature adults I mean as you didn’t hear afterwards about a fight breaking out between the two. Its all about being the BOM!! The BOSS of YOU!!

On January 24, 2010, Utah police were called to actor Gary Coleman’s residence on a domestic violence charge, when they got there they found no evidence of any domestic violence in action. Then Gary Coleman was taken in on a warrant for prior domestic violence charges in 2009. As a matter of fact Coleman and his wife Shannon were both arrested in 2009 for domestic violence. The couple was married in 2007, since tying the knot these newlywed’s domestic violence problems have been a big deal for the tabloids. Gary has had 2 prior charges for domestic violence, and his wife has had 1 prior charge, and it seems like this won’t be the last we hear these two!

Reese Witherspoon launched a campaign against dating violence. I believe this is a good this because now people will really pay more attention to domestic violence and know that this is something that is seriously happening to out teens and our community. She personally feels that domestic violence is hidden. I agree with her because sometimes we can’t visually see what’s going on in a relationship until someone tells us. Just because it’s not showing on the outside the wounds and scars are on the inside. I also feel this campaign is good because they she know what to do to get the media attention. Everyone needs to know that domestic violence is not just happening in adult relationships but teen relationships also. We sometimes all need a little push or just for someone to help us out.

Nas and Kelis filed for a divorce in April of 2009.Since then the former couple has been entangled in a battle over custody and financial support. A judge ordered Nas to pay Kelis $51,000 a month in child support and spousal support, plus medical expenses for their young son. Nas fesses up to Kelis’s claims that he was unfaithful during their almost five year union. Nas raps in his new song Strong Will Continue says “How in the hell am I supposed to stay comfy when I pay child support, alimony monthly?” A source tells the associated press that Nas has asked the judge for more time to put together a defense that would prove that he cannot afford the $51.101 a month payments he was offered to pay last year. Nas has been ordered to appear in court next month. If found guilty, he could face jail time.

Claudinette found a naked picture in Wyclef’s cell of HIS MANAGER!!!
Wifey made him drop his manager, but the manager (Lisa Ellis) says not at all, she quit herself because she didn’t like how Wyclef did business and the picture has nothing to do with why she quit. Is sad how he didn’t even erase it, after however the picture got in his phone and that’s the women he lives with and whom he calls his wife! The manager adds,” That photograph was taken for a book [Beatiful: Nudes by Marc Baptiste]. Hmmmmmmmm, I don’t know if wifey is going to believe this after the affair Wyclef had going on earlier in their marriage with, Lauryn Hill. It seems like he likes WORKING his co-workers.

Chris Brown speaks on the Tiger Woods situation : “I think people always deserve a second chance. Whatever (Tiger’s) personal life is — and I think this goes for me and him — his personal life is his personal life. Nobody has the right to place judgment or make any judgment on somebody else’s personal life when they’re not directly involved with them.”
Yea, a second chance , but then again is wrong how men always think they can do so much to a woman and just wake up one day and think everything is all good. Personally, I believe in karma so no matter what is said they gone get a dose of they’re medicine

Dwayne mckenzie is being accused by his ex-girlfriend of burning up 50 cents baby mammas mansion, Dwayne is 50 cents assistant and a close associate with g-unit. Mckenzie’s attorney says that mckenzie’s ex girlfriend Shana Chin is just money hungry and likes to hang around rappers and the hip hop scene for money.  If you ask me they all need BOM in their life because everything that’s going on in this situation is because of people having bad relationships. For example if 50 cent and his baby mamma didn’t have the problems in there relationship that they did then they would not have enough hatred towards eachother where they have to worry about getting there house burned down. If Dwayne mckenzie and his ex-girlfriend could work out their problems then he would have never have to worry about getting snitched on, that’s my opinion. If you know anybody that has these kind of problems in there relationship send them to Bom411 immediately because those are not healthy relationships at all.
