Chrissy Teigen

John Legend's wife Chrissy Teigen once again covers the 2015 swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated magazine. The glorified swimsuit issue is SI's bread and butter. Without it, the magazine probably couldn't stay afloat (pun intended).

After the break is just a sampling of photos featuring the plus-sized model wearing skimpy bikinis in the 2015 swimsuit issue. Enjoy.

Morning Glory Kim Kardashian

Loyal reader Man, I just Don't Care requested a Kim Kardashian Morning Glory post for his birthday today. I culled a selection of photos from back in the day when Kim Kardashian was every man's wet dream. Sadly those days are long gone, as Kim's hips and curves have given way to a flabby silicone shape. Happy birthday, Man!

Morning Glory Simone

Loyal reader Unique writes:

I am a loyal reader of your site. I have been contemplating submitting for a while until I have seen your past few morning Glory Posts and thought: why not? I am submitting my sister Simone. She is from the Virginia and is an aspiring entertainer (Dancer, Rapper, songwriter and Model).

Simone was born to be an entertainer. At the tender age of 5, Simone began dance training at a known local Dance and Gymnastics studio. Simone quickly stood out, excelling in hip-hop, jazz, tap, lyrical, and gymnastics. Proving her dance abilities she was asked to become a teacher’s assistant, and later went on to
run her own classes.

Simone has participated in many dance competitions and has won first place platinum many times. In 2008 Simone was one of the few dancers selected from The school to audition for America’s Got Talent in Washington, DC. Finding consolation from the drama that comes with being a teenager (now 19) she began writing poetry, which lead to writing lyrics. To date, Simone has recorded over 20 songs, connecting with DMV local artist. She is determined to make a name for herself, as she learns the pretty and ugly of the business.

She’s on Twitter (@TheRealSimone_)
and Instagram (kiarasimone_).

She is truly is a special young lady with a great heart and ambition.

Thank you for your
consideration and time!

Queen Rosa and James Harden

Earlier I told you about professional ball players and rappers who routinely date the same groupies who have dated other ball players and rappers. The reason for this behavior is that men are collectors by nature. They are very competitive. They believe a groupie's value goes up exponentially if she has dated another ball player.

So it isn't unusual for ball players to collect the same groupies the way they collect cars, guns, watches, sneakers, etc.

Professional groupie Queen Rosa has already dated NFL star Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson, LA Lakers star Jordan Hill, and Houston Rockets star James Harden. So she is considered a valuable catch for the next ball player or athlete who is waiting in line.

Yesterday, Queen Rosa tweeted a photo of her daughter at a lunch date with James Harden. Mothers shouldn't bring men around their daughters, but groupies never play by the rules.

    Former NFL player Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson is the latest star to leak a sex tape in hopes of generating ratings or interest in a project he's involved with. Johnson and his ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada, were set to star in a much-hyped Basketball Wives spin-off about their fake marriage, but their reality show was put on ice by VH1 when Johnson went off-script and Chris Browned Lozada earlier this year.

    Milla Jasmine

    Over the weekend, photos of Chris Brown partying with Karrueche and her friends in Paris surfaced online. The photos put an end to any speculation that Brown and Karrueche have split up.

    While in Paris, Karrueche met a buxom model named Milla Jasmine who is on the verge of superstardom. That's Milla's butt you see stuffed in Chris Brown's face in one of the Instagram photos.

    It is only fitting that I present Milla to you in all of her Glory. I don't know much about her, but that will soon change.

    Hello Ms. Rose,

    My name is Summer Flowers, I am an aspiring model & actress currently living in Dallas, TX, but looking to relocate to Atlanta, GA to help jumpstart this life long dream. While the road for me will be alot hard the normal model/actress want to be, I am determined. I put off this dream for a very long time and put it aside to take care of my family. Until 3 months ago I feel God put it in my heart and on mind, that as long as I have breath in my body, is never to late. I have adopted the motto. " A dream deferred, does not mean a dream dettered"...

    I love be featured in your Morning Glory section, as I hope to serve as a living example of never giving up and following your dreams.

    Thank you,

    Hi Sandra,

    My name is Tara James, I'm 26 years old and I live in California by way of Austin, Texas. I'm currently working full time and studying to be an EMT with the hopes of moving to Atlanta in 2 years with my family. I am a faithful reader of your blog! I visit your site several times a day just to make sure I'm keeping up with what's going on in the industry.

    I always see the beautiful women in your morning glory posts and I was feeling froggy so I decided to jump :) Attached are my photos for your Morning Glory post...These aren't like the typical pictures that you post as I am 8 months pregnant with my first (and last) child.

    When I was younger, my mother owned an African clothing store and I thought it would be nice to dedicate this shoot to her. They're also totally different from the mundane maternity photos that you would probably see floating around. To be featured in your Morning Glory section would be a huge honor! Thanks in advance for the consideration :)

    Sincerely,

    Tara James

    Update: Tara writes:

    Thank you so much for choosing me to be apart of your Morning Glory section! I really, really appreciate the love. Lol! I can't stop smiling and posting the link anywhere I can. People will get tired of me by the end of the day...Thank you so much!

    Oh and if your LA readers ask, the wonderful photographer was Samuel Dawes. His website is www.studioartistre.com and the talented makeup artist was Ms. Brandy Edwards. Her email address is BillieLuxBeauty@gmail.com.

    Thank you again for everything...Now I can get back to reading your other posts :-)
