As some of you may already know, loyal reader PYT_504 recently won the title of Ms Opelousas Spice and Music Queen at a pageant in Louisiana. Congrats to PYT! We so proud of you girl!

PYT got the chance to give a speech before the mayor. Her profile photo also won Most Photogenic in the pageant. According to PYT, the pageant honors the history of creole people and their culture in Louisiana.

I’ll let PYT give you all the details:

Well the pageant was for creoles in Louisiana. It was based upon knowledge and history within our culture. Also based upon the knowledge and history of the music we listen to here in Louisiana which is called ZYDECO. (zah-dee-co).

It wasnt based upon skin color, hair texture, nor eye color as some people think that is what creole people are supposed to look like. It was not a beauty contest. I don’t get down that mess. A festival will be held in my honor and also to honor the Spice and Music culture here in Louisiana. The city it will be held in is Opelousas, LA.

My official title is Ms Opelousas Spice and Music Queen. The other girl that was in the audience in the 1st pic is the Teen Queen and she is a white girl so having knowledge about the culture is not based on heritage. The festival will be held June 5th – June 8th!!! at our racetrack and casino.

I really don’t like this dude ’cause he’s an arrogant SOB. But I know most of you ladies like the men with the light eyes. So here’s a story on Gary Dourdan from CSI:

Gary Dourdan pleaded guilty to two of the felony possession charges against him and won’t have to serve any jail time.

The first charged against him, for having heroin, was dropped. He pleaded guilty to the possession of coke and ecstasy charges.

Dourdan will enter a treatment program and has to complete 16 classes. (Source)

Yesterday I wrote a post detailing a phenomenon that remains a mystery to most doctors. Over the years, many women have complained of a phantom cramping pain that begins about 10 minutes after they engage in sexual intercourse or oral sex. The cramps increase in intensity to the point where some women are immobilized with pain.

Yesterday I wasn’t clear in pointing out that the cramps are usually brought on by the female orgasm – not the physical act of having sex itself. When a female has an orgasm it produces the same minor uterine contractions as women in labor. Most women don’t notice the contractions at all after they have an orgasm.

After I published my post on post coital cramps yesterday, I received a handful of emails from loyal readers who experienced pain during sex due to a medical condition called endometriosis. Women who are diagnosed with endometriosis usually experience sharp pain during and after sex.

This is different from the post coital muscle cramps in the lower abdomen that otherwise healthy women have complained about for years.

For most women who experience post coital (after sex) cramping, there is no known cause or cure.

More Medical Minute after the break…

Let’s face it, Usher hasn’t exactly drawn rave reviews for his acting. But if Usher ever fails at his music career he might have a future as a comedian.

Okay, I know this is one too many Usher posts, but his CD dropped yesterday and, well, he’ll disappear from public view once the album bombs. So it all balances out in the long run.

Anyway, Ush made a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live last week. But his comedy skit was cut because he misread the cue cards. In the skit, Usher gushed about his love for women much older than his 39-year-old wife Tameka. A video clip of that skit finally found its way to the Internets. I totally enjoyed this video. I laughed out loud more than a few times at his attempts at humor. I thought Usher was really funny – and cute….. did I say that? :lol:

Here’s Big Gay Al Reynolds and Lil’ Romeo as you’ve never seen them before! Well, I’ve never seen them quite this way before. Who knew Gay Al had a six pack or any pack for that matter.

And Lil’ Romeo gets his grown man on while the cougars salivate on the sidelines!

Mariah Carey made a fool out of herself in Tokyo Japan when she threw the first pitch at a game and bounced the baseball off her own head. Okay, maybe not her own head – but her wild pitch went over the plate and into the small crowd that assembled to watch her sashay around the mound. The team mascot, not knowing who Mariah was, kicked her off the field. I’m kidding of course. Mariah was a good sport and the Japanese loved her.

Designer Christian Audigier isn’t exactly a household name, but his name was enough to draw the biggest stars in showbiz to his 50th birthday party at the infamous Peterson Automotive Museum in LA last week. Michael Jackson, Britney Spears, Macy Gray, Snoop Dogg, Mickey Rourke, Fergie, Pamela Anderson, and more were in the house. If this were 5 years ago, Michael’s attendance would have shut down Miracle Mile in LA. But nowadays, nobody cares. Most of you will recall it was at the Peterson Automotive Museum where The Notorious B.I.G. attended his last bash before being killed in a drive-by shooting in 1997.

Usher posed with industry veteran Mark Pitts (Zomba Label Group) at his album release party. Michelle Williams, Gayle King and Busta Rhymes were the only celebs to hit Usher’s album release party at Norwood in NYC last night after the “Sex in the City” Premiere. I guess nobody cared. I believe Usher borrowed his outfit from one of his stepsons.

Lil’ Kim still looks blissfully disoriented as usual, but at least she’s color coordinated.

I had no clue Sarah Jessica Parker was that tiny! Jennifer Hudson finally found the time to attend a “Sex in the City: The Movie” Premiere after missing the first 3 or 4 premieres. This one was at the Radio City Music Hall in NYC last night.

Mary J Blige and her faithful hubby Kendu Isaac also attended the ‘City’ premiere last night. Black love is sooo beautiful! Love the Chanel clutch and dress. Chanel must have had a fire sale because everyone is Hollywood is wearing the line.

According to pre-sales estimates, Usher’s 5th studio effort Here I Stand – which dropped yesterday – will be the biggest debut album of the year with 575K in 1st week sales. On the strength of his solid #1 hit “Love in This Club”, Usher soundly trounces Mariah’s E=MC2 which previously held the top seller title with 475k sold the first week out.

Most of us missed the boat on this one with predictions as low as 80-150k in first week sales. I’m sure Usher is somewhere laughing.


Usher appeared on MTV’s TRL show today. Just after passing out about a hundred CDs to the studio audience (which most likely counts toward his overall CD sales), Usher went into a rant about people talking about his wife (again).

This is sooo tiring and bizarre. Does Usher have a PR company? This is the time to promote his new album which is about to do horrible numbers, in part, because of this obsession he has with people talking about his wife.

Usher acts like he’s brand new to the music biz. He’s lost most of his fan base with his unpredictable bitch-like behavior.

It’s not a good look for a male entertainer to continuously show his feminine side unless he’s on the verge of coming out. We already know his wife wears the pants in the relationship. Usher should make an effort to hold on to the last shred of dignity that he has left.
