Hi Sandra,

My name is America, yes thats my real name. I am the youngest of 6 and the only one born in America. I am 24 years old and a single mother of a beautiful son. I have worked in the financial Industry for over 5 yrs and just because you are a business woman doesnt mean you still cant be sexy. I love your blog and it's the first site i visit every morning. I think it is amazing that you give exposure to everyday people. Your morning glory/wood section shows women/men that you dont have to look a certain way to be beautiful/handsome. After thinking about it for a while i decided to just submit my pics to see if i would make the cut. The pictures that i am sending some are professional and some are candid shots that has not been touched up in any type of way. I just want people to see that photoshop doesnt make you look better it only removes your flaws to make you seem perfect. Here i am flaws and all. No one is perfect. Thanks for doing this.
xoxo

Keyshia Cole's stalker is expected to plead guilty of stalking and other charges in a hearing on Thursday, The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Webster is charged with aggravated stalking and other offenses for a recent incident involving Cole, according to a news release by the Fulton County District Attorney’s office. He faces up to 13 years in prison if he pleads guilty as expected.

In 2009, Cole considered putting her custom built 5 bedroom, 5 bath house on the market in 2009 after Webster followed her home one night. He was eventually caught with a large cache of weapons and convicted on a lesser charge.

“I own a gun – a Glock… and I called the police and told them I’d kill him and that I prefer not to,” said Keyshia in a cover story for the June 2009 issue of KING magazine.

There was a time when we used to wait for cold weather before we pulled out our favorite leather coats, dresses, pants and boots. But celebrities have started a trend by wearing leather outfits in balmy 80 degree Summer weather. These celebs risk heat stroke in favor of high style.

Singer Jennifer Lopez and her dancer boyfriend Casper Smart were spotted leaving 'Evita' on Broadway on Tuesday evening. Lopez wore a hot leather dress, but she barely broke a sweat trying to keep up with the fast moving Casper.

When the news broke in July about the head butt that sent reality TV star Evelyn Lozada to a Florida hospital for stitches, one person who wasn't entirely sympathetic to Lozada's pain and suffering was RHOA star NeNe Leakes.

Lozada's 'husband' Chad Johnson, 34, was arrested for allegedly head butting his wife of 41 days during an argument over a condom receipt in August. Johnson subsequently lost his job as a wide receiver with the Miami Dolphins football team -- along with lucrative endorsements. He remains unemployed.

When asked if she reached out to Evelyn in an interview with Essence mag, NeNe said, "I wanted to reach out to her, but I didn't."

  • A man who lived his life as a woman was arrested and charged with depraved-heart murder after an illegal butt shots procedure he performed resulted in the death of an Atlanta woman.

    Morris Garner, 53, performed the illegal operation on Karima Gordon, 37, in March at his home in Jackson, Mississippi, the Associated Press reports.

    Garner was arrested and charged with depraved-heart murder on April 6, according to jail records. A depraved-heart murder, also known as depraved-indifference murder, is a legal term for a crime that demonstrates a "callous disregard for human life" and results in death. The charge carries a life sentence.

    Garner is not licensed to perform butt shots procedures, or any other medical procedure, said Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood during a news conference Tuesday.

    Scott Van Duzer, 46, of Port St. Lucie, Florida, made headlines when he power lifted President Obama off his feet during a campaign stop on Sunday. Van Duzer, who owns the Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, Fla., says angry residents are threatening to boycott his pizza shop after he hugged the president during the campaign stop.

    “People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant,” Van Duzer told POLITICO.com. “There’s no middle line anymore, and that's exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.”

    By now you've all seen the photo of the Republican pizzeria owner bear hugging Mr. Obama. The first thing I thought when I saw the picture was where are the Secret Service? If the photo had not been staged Secret Service agents would've beat him worse than Chris Brown beat Rihanna.
