My 8 year old son Matteo and I had the pleasure of meeting [NY Knicks star] Carmelo Anthony on Saturday in Manhattan. He waited for me to park my car and took pics with my son and gave him his autograph. He was really kind and approachable. Carmelo was the perfect gentlemen and made my son so happy.

Hi Sandra,

I am an avid reader of your site! I find your site to be quite credible and entertaining. I'm submitting a few morning glory photos on behalf of my friend Gabriela Solano. Not only is my friend an aspiring singer with a great voice but she is a talented hip-hop/ballet dancer, as well as an aspiring model. Besides her array of talents, she is also a single mother of a beautiful baby girl.

I've watched her over the years juggle school, work, and motherhood--I have much respect for her and the women out there that wear multiple hats. Lastly, my friend is from Stamford Connecticut and let's just say that we don't have many stars from Stamford, Connecticut.

Hopefully, featuring my friend as your Morning Glory will provide her with the platform she needs to become recognized. If anyone would like to book my amazing friend Gabriela Solano for upcoming fashion shows, etc., please e-mail me at acope@csufresno.edu. FYI, she has no idea that I'm doing this for her. I know that she deserves to be recognized and as her friend I wanted to do something special for her. God blesses those who work hard and keep at their dream! Here blessings await her.

Thank you in advance for this opportunity on behalf of my friend Sandra.

God bless you,

Eish

Loyal reader James writes:

Hey Sandra. I read the blog all the time and sometimes I see you post pictures of your readers who happen to sight a celebrity/ public figure.

This weekend, I went to go see Tyler Perry's new movie, "Alex Cross", at Atlantic Station. It was a wonderful movie--despite the low box office numbers.

As I was entering theater, I noticed a woman with an incredible body and when I looked at the woman's face, I saw that it was Joseline from 'Love & Hip Hop.' I asked for a picture and she obliged. She was incredibly kind and seems very likable. God Bless!

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 :-)

Comments Off on Morning Wood: Thai Edwards

A loyal reader writes:

Hey Sandra, I wanted to present to you another SEXY male model for your blog this morning. Actor, Model, celebrity Trainer & Chef are just a few of the titles that best describe Thai Edwards. When Thai enters a room his commanding presence is immediately felt. Though a true “Alpha Male” and “man’s man” his caramel complexion, muscular physique and million dollar smile can melt the heart of any woman. Combined with charisma, charm and a work ethic rivaled by few, Thai Edwards is destined to be Hollywood’s next Leading Man. The first born son of a Culinary Chef and Para-Legal Thai grew up on the south-side of Chicago IL, where he pushed hard for success. When his parents divorced, Thai was left to practically raise himself. With the determination not to be a victim of his troubled childhood, Thai was both an exceptional student and athlete. Ranked as one of the highest regarded high school athletes in both Football and Basketball during his tenure.

Comments Off on Morning Glory: Veronica

Loyal reader Veronica writes:

Hey Sandra,

Let me first say that I love your site and your ability to be so blunt and open about everything. Don't ever change that no matter what anyone says.

My name is Veronica. I'm 27 years old and from San Antonio, Tx. I'm an aspiring model but I work full time as well as raise my 2 beautiful boys. I used to be a very insecure person before I started this whole modeling thing. I had many people telling me how stupid I was for thinking that way about myself. Being very petite, boyishly skinny, and not so curvaceous hindered me from accepting who I was. I now know that I love myself the way I am, as so should everyone else. I still battle with my insecurity to this day. It would be greatly appreciated if you chose me to be one of your Morning Glory selections. Even just getting my message across would be amazing. Thank you!! <3

Hi Sandra,

My name is 'Petitelilmiss' and I have been a FAITHful reader of your site for the last 4-5yrs. I visit on a daily basis and feel so behind when I miss a day. Your raw and uncut honestly is appreciated when there are so many other blogs that water down the truth or run from it because they are afraid of losing visitors. Anyhoo, I am writing to submit a couple pictures of my friend Rudy Brown. He is an overall great person. He serves the community with a career in law enforcement. He has a degree in Psychology from Nova University in Davie, Fl. And he is a God-Fearing Man. I thought that it would be a nice gesture to shine some light on a wonderful and driven man. Though he is in a committed relationship, this is just proof to women out there that GOOD MEN DO EXIST.. and it doesn't hurt if they are handsome.

I am constantly judged because of how I look and the industry that I'm in. Despite any negative energy that may come my way I continue to live out my purpose and achieve my goals. All young women should know that you can be sexy, beautiful and educated all at the same time. I never hide who I am or dumb myself down for someone else's pleasure. I'm full of life and I thank God everyday for the gifts he has given me. I enjoy your blog and the issues you bring up for debate amongst my friends and I. I love your Morning Glory section because it highlights and encourages beautiful women all over the country.

Hello Sandra,

My name is Renee, Im a 35 year old 5'3" petite woman. I'm so happy that you display the every day person on your blog site. Even though I try to dibble dab in a little modeling here and there, I'm more of a advocate of community outreach to our children and youth. My sister and myself have a non-profit mentoring program called Leecy's Daughters, and I also teach dance to children and youth though out my community. I teach the young girls/women that you dont have to be trashy to be sexy and that beauty comes from within first. I also help them to work hard for their dreams and never let anything or anyone take that from them.. My quote; "Life is about Learning, If you're not Learning, then you're not Living" and being the best "YOU" makes you beautiful, so in that I decided to submit my photos for your morning glories!!

Hello Ms Rose,
My name is Branden Nicholson and I would "love" to be featured on your site as morning wood. I am a huge follower on your site, because you tell it straight up without sugar coating anything. I am 29 years of age and i am out of Southern California. I am a professional model/ fitness entrepreneur. I change "lives" for a living weather its via internet training, B.Nick Fat Blast Bootcamps or one on one personal training. My motto is "If I can change one life a day, then this job is for me." There is nothing better in life than to be able to get others up and going, from sick to healthy and fit. I do not consider myself a “trainer,” per say. I consider myself a life coach. What I do is NOT a phase, it’s a lifestyle. To God be the glory with every transformation I initiate. With Him anything is possible! With every life I continue to change, the more glory I will give Him.“

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.
