Rapper The Game knows a thing or two about infidelity. He's been down that road despite being in a committed relationship.

The NY Post's Tim Donnelly has written another heartwarming story about finding love amid the wreckage of Hurricane Sandy.
"Emanuel Boseman was panicked. He was stranded in a tiny 50-square-foot second-floor storage unit in Coney Island as Sandy pushed ocean waters into the building, completely flooding the first floor.

R&B Diva Keyshia Cole is set to release her fifth studio project after numerous delays. Going back to her roots on Woman To Woman, the mother of one crafted tracks about relationship issues that many women can relate to.
Cole, 31, is candid about her own relationship troubles with husband Daniel Gibson, 26. The couple sought marriage counseling when Gibson could no longer tolerate Cole's mood swings. It was Gibson's decision to seek therapy to save his marriage. Cole's album track list reflects the struggles that most young couples experience once the dopamine fades.
Cole says, “This album is not about me, the album is about the fans that really want to hear things that help them and give them inspiration to get over dudes that do them wrong.”
Woman to Woman is set for a November 19 release. See the tracklist below.
Earlier I posted an email from Cheryl Redmond, the mother of Zeboe Pullins' youngest children. Cheryl is a great example of a woman who holds her family together and stands by her man through thick and thin.
But some women marry men for all the wrong reasons.
Without singling out Tamar Braxton, some women confuse love for neediness. As children they didn't have a healthy, supportive relationship with their fathers, so they grow up looking for men to fulfill their unrealistic needs. These women are beautiful, seductive, lovable, possessive, and eventually they become very demanding.
When these women find men like Vince (who has issues of their own), they form a sometimes destructive relationship that doesn't benefit either of them spiritually or mentally.
