Last weekend I flew to Boston to attend a momentous occasion -- the 7th birthday celebration of my great nephew Elijah Joseph, aka Eli.

Over the weekend I received angry emails from readers concerned about photos of actress Zoe Saldana wearing a nappy afro wig and dark makeup in her role as the late jazz singer Nina Simone.
The 34-year-old 'Colombiana' star was chosen for the part from a list of dark skinned singers and actresses who were more qualified for the part.
Fans of Nina Simone have begun circulating a petition in hopes of garnering enough signatures to present to the filmmakers.
"Playing Nina Simone could be one of the more definitive roles as far as biopics go–it’s not that Saldana a talented actress, but it’s hard to imagine there isn’t another Black actress out there who couldn’t evoke a better Nina," writes Hellobeautiful.com.
Tameka "Tiny" Harris was honored last night at the ASCAP Awards held in Atlanta. She arrived in a grey Bentley (a gift from her husband Tip Harris), wearing a fitted black and white dress and Gucci mink trimmed sandals, according to celebrity blogger Tami Reed (Talkingwithtami). Tiny flew into town from Los Angeles just to attend the event. She was in LA with her group the OMG Girlz who are recording their album.
Congrats to Tiny!
ABC anchor Robin Roberts stepped outside her New York apartment 21 days after she underwent a bone marrow transplant at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Roberts, 51, was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), a rare blood disorder similar to blood cancer (leukemia). It is believed she contracted the disease from radiation therapy treatments for breast cancer.
Roberts underwent chemotherapy treatments last month to destroy her immune system to prepare her body for the new bone marrow transplant. Chemotherapy kills rapidly dividing cells, including hair roots resulting in hair loss from the scalp and eyebrows.
If you wondered why you don't see more of 8-year-old King Harris in episodes of his parents' reality show, T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, that's because King is an official member of The Tams!
For months now King has been on the road touring and performing as a regular member of The Tams, who have been entertaining audiences for over 40 years!
The Tams was founded by Tameka's father, Charles Pope, who was forced to retire due to illness.

According to The Tams' official website, the group has 2 Gold Records and 1 Platinum Single.

Franklin's PR denied the reports that Franklin had gastric surgery. But her rapid weight loss in the months following her hospitalization was evident of weight reduction surgery.
