R&B singer Monifah recently spoke out about dating women in an interview with Essence.com. Though Monifah once dated ex-lover Queen Latifah for many years, she still can't bring herself to admit she's out of the closet.
"I hate the term," she says, "because I've never been anything but who I am, and I've lived my authentic life."
Monifah, 41, is one of 5 R&B singers featured in a new reality TV series titled "R&B Divas," premiering Aug. 20 on TVOne. The series also stars Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert, Kiki Wyatt, and Sylena Johnson. The series centers around the women's lives as they work together on a R&B compilation album.
Socialite and reality TV star La La Anthony rushed to London with her son Kiyan to meet up with husband Carmelo Anthony as soon as she heard that certain members of Team USA were being naughty.

Men have needs that require urgent attention -- and it doesn't really matter who they get that attention from. When a man marries a woman he promises to stay faithful, but that only works as long as there aren't any beautiful, irresistible gold diggers around to tempt them.

R&B singer Jarvis has gotten rid of his boyish braids and now he is back and ready to make room for you in his bed, his head and his heart.
Now 24, Jarvis just leaked a brand new single, "Make A Little Room," from his upcoming mixtape titled Heartache scheduled to drop Summer of 2012.
Jarvis was originally signed to So So Def Recordings where he released the single and video for "Radio."
His days at So So Def were short lived though, due to the fact that So So Def lost its major distribution deal and went belly up.
Jarvis re-evaluated his situation which led him to a brief partnership with Ludacris' Disturbing Tha Peace Imprint which yielded the popular single "Pretty Girl" ft. Ludacris.
