Sorry ladies, you just lost your chance to be with eligible bachelor Daniel “Booby” Gibson. The handsome 29-year-old former NBA star-turned-rapper was spotted getting cozy with his latest love at a recent party.

Sorry ladies, former ‘Scandal’ star Columbus Short is no longer on the market. The subject of his sudden interest is a young lady named Rasheeda Russell.
Mega-producer Pharrell Williams is feeling the heat for neglecting to feature a black woman on the cover of his new album, titled simply “G I R L”.
The cover features Williams, 40. posing with three women — 1 Caucasian, 1 Hispanic and 1 LSLH. All four are clad in bathrobes and dark sunglasses.
Williams, who recently married a mixed race woman, said, “The woman I’m standing closest to, she is black and she’s been a friend of mine for a long time.”
I beg to differ. It is ignorant and racist to assume that people of mixed parentage are black. This is the type of backwards thinking that is reinforced by people who still believe in the archaic one drop rule.
Don’t you hate it when highly favored LSLH women pretend that their good hair isn’t one of the benefits of their biracial heritage?
Let’s face it, nappy hair is called nappy for a reason. It takes a good deal of effort (and strong chemicals) to tame our tight African curls.
For women like Tamera Mowry and her twin sister, Tia, half the battle is won because they inherited their soft, easy to manage curls from their white ancestors.
On her blog, Tamera suggests that everyone (even those of us with tight, hard to manage curls) can achieve her soft bouncy curls by simply drying our hair with a cotton tee instead of a towel which causes split ends.
