Chanel Iman and Bu Thiam Are Off the Market

Chanel Iman and Bu Thiam

After breaking up with Diana Ross‘s daughter, actress Tracey Ellis Ross, Def Jam A&R Bu Thiam didn’t waste any time squiring another beauty. Bu, who is singer Akon‘s brother, quietly courted supermodel Chanel Iman before she fell for his charm. The couple spent the weekend attending Coachella concerts in Los Angeles.

Chanel Iman

Bu lavishes Chanel with gifts and first class trips to exotic locations. According to friends, Bu wants to keep this relationship under wraps until he’s sure Chanel is the right one. Friends say Tracee is “devastated” at the break up of yet another relationship. The problem with young women like Tracee is they are special and that men should place them on a pedestal. They don’t realize they should be treating their men like Kings and maybe they will be able to keep a man. But they’ll learn.

      If he wants to make sure she’s the right one, then why blow so much money on gifts and trips? I’m for gifts, but why not have periods of time in b/t gifts so she doesn’t know to expect it?

      The prollem with this statement? The word young. After say 35 young need not be used. I mean you aint ancient (like your yearbook pic isnt a hand painting) but you aint young. :no:

      Chanel Iman? Is at LEAST 20 years younger than Tracee. Now that is young.

      What’s the latest craze that takes the cake as far as bizarre palate pleasers? Cocktails made with semen. In his new book, “Semenology: The Semen’s Bartender Handbook,” Paul Photenhauer discusses the benefits of adding semen to enhance beverages, reports the Washington Post’s Slate.

      Photenhauer, a semen connoisseur of sorts, describes his “new” addition as “the ultimate handbook for mixologists looking for ingredients that go beyond exotic fruit juices and rare spirits.” The book provides ways in which you can store semen and recipes on some real tasty zingers like Macho Mojito, the Slightly Saltier Caviar, and the Galliano Cum Shot. No, really.

      But why does Photenhauer dabble in the mixology of semen?

      The author explains that semen has a uniqueness about it that seems to enhance a recipe or drink. “For me, it’s more of a fun twist to add to food, or in this case a drink. It adds a definite personal twist to it,” Photenhauer told SF Weekly. “People eat all kinds of weird stuff,” Photenhauer contends. “Eggs are the menstruation of chickens. Milk is the mammary excretion from cows. Semen is…at least it’s fresh and you know who the producer is.”

Does it taste salty or sweet to be fresh? Is it the color that says it’s fresh?…ok well not color cuz if he has an std its a greenish color. (so says my sex ed from high school…is that really true?) And who’s sperm is it? Is this to be done only at the house?! But really, If I wanted to drink sperm, I’d go home and ….nevermind. :kona:

      Nah Sandra. you know you can’t keep a man JUST by treating him like a Queen. I always treat a man like a king but,if he isn’t a true King he will never be able to reciprocate, if he aint shii he just aint. Treating a man like a KING has NEVER stopped him from fuggin u & leavin u fo dead.

      ****************************
      Sorry to come back to this, but I was that taken aback by this thing.

      I have never seen hands being thrown in all the years RHOA has been on. I don’t know about the other franchises because I don’t watch them. I have NEVER EVER seen a fight on ANY reality show that was allowed to go on for several minutes without security and/or producers breaking it up. Maybe this happens on Bad Girls Club, but I don’t watch that show.

      These are wealthy people who mingle with white folk in ball gowns and tuxedos by the pool. This is not Evelyn or Erica Mena. This ain’t even Jen who THINKS she’s high class. These are high society people. They don’t expect to see hood rats fighting at their high society affairs. You see the host’s husband was so appalled that he assumed Mariah’s husband would file for divorce the next day. This is not normal behavior for people with class. I love trifling reality shows and the fights, but I want to see that from ghetto people. Not rich people and this one time I gotta say that I don’t want white people seeing this and saying, “so it’s not just the rappers. Black people just can’t act right now matter how much money we give them or how much sophistication we expose them too.” That’s just my opinion. As for the type of thing I was expecting from this show is Quad. She’s fabulous. But the ghetto chicks I could do without.
