@Darkerthajenni documents cosmetic surgeries on Instagram

Documenting breast implants and liposuction surgeries online is nothing new, but rarely do you see a black woman being so open about cosmetic surgery.

Most women who can afford to leave the country for expensive cosmetic surgeries keep their friends in the dark about how they got their new curves. Whether due to vanity or shame, they return from their “vacation” to the Dominican Republic with a plethora of lies to explain the weight loss and artificially enhanced breasts and butt (exotic diets, new personal trainer, Yoga, etc.)

Hollywood actress Megan Good leaving Claridges Hotel London

Actress Meagan Good was seen leaving the posh Claridge’s Hotel in Mayfair, London, England, where she attended the Anchorman 2 premiere. The preacher’s wife didn’t respond well to criticism that she dressed like a slut at the 2013 BET Awards. Meagan, who married Minister DeVon Franklin in 2012, said in an Instagram post “I’m not any less holy because [of] the dress I wore.” But Meagan did eventually see the error in her ways. She’s telling friends that she will dress more conservatively and respectfully in the future.

Nasal boils

Rapper T.I.’s niece, Kamaya Harris, posted the following photos on her Instagram page today. In the caption she wrote:

I wasn’t going to post this but I wanted to share my flow for the past 3 days… They have been very miserable, very sleepless, & very painful but thru it all God is good almost over & I’ll be back to myself soon

The “boil” is real

Based on the information in her caption, I’m guessing she is suffering from a painful boil (Furunculosis, Folliculitis) inside her nose that can be caused by Streptococcus pyogenes or Staphylococcus aureus bacteria.

You may recall my discussion on Staphylococcus Aureus in my Medical Minute post on MRSA. I told you that Staph lives on our skin and inside our noses. When the bacteria colonizes our noses it becomes necessary to decolonize the nose with antibiotics to prevent recurrent infections.

Boy suspended for kissing girl

A 6-year-old Colorado boy was suspended from school for 2 days for kissing a female classmate on the hand.

The national media dragged the school district for burdening first-grader Hunter Yelton with a “sexual harassment” infraction on his school records. In response to the public outcry, the district downgraded the sexual harassment charge to misconduct.

The boy’s mother, Jennifer Saunders, expressed outrage at the school district’s decision to suspend her son.

“He is 6 years old, and that is absolutely ridiculous for him to have ‘sexual harassment’ on his record, even it is (only on the district’s) record,” she said.

But the girl’s mother stands behind the school’s decision to suspend the boy and to label him a sexual predator.

Keyshia Cole at Bootsy Bellows

R&B Diva Keyshia Cole was spotted leaving Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood, California on Tuesday. The 32-year-old singer was carrying a bouquet of roses. There are rumors that Keyshia is dating local party promoter Mr. Ruggs. People forget that Keyshia is still married to her husband, NBA star Daniel “Booby” Gibson, with whom she has a son. Keyshia is a good woman who would never violate her marital vows. And besides that, Mr. Ruggs has a reputation for being an international playboy. Keyshia doesn’t strike me as the desperate type who thinks she can change a known playa. How do these rumors get started?
