Since then, NeNe has been seen partying and vacationing non-stop with menswear designer Nyonisela — and a source tells PEOPLE she's "absolutely open to marriage again."

The insider says NeNe and Nyoni, owner of Nyoni Couture, are already in the planning stages of their star-studded nuptials.

She captioned an Instagram picture of Nyoni, "The way you love on me & take care of me....Grateful!"

"Despite losing Gregg last year, she is really happy and in a great place as she begins starting this next chapter of her life," the insider tells PEOPLE.

"She's been leaning heavily on her girlfriends these last few months and when she's not with Nyonisela, she's with them whether it's in Atlanta or other places," the source says. "She really hasn't been alone much."

Other sources say Nyoni is using NeNe to promote himself and his company. They say he is still married and has at least one child with his long-suffering wife in Charlotte, NC.

But that's just a technicality to NeNe, a former stripper who has never been manless in her entire adult life.

"Nene is totally into [Nyoni]," the source says. "He's wining and dining her. They're very much already in love."

Destiny, 27, is best known for her role in the FOX TV soap Star (2016-2019) and as a member of the girl group Love Dollhouse.

Powers, 29, starred as Cameron Drake on Netflix's #REALITYHIGH and he played Ronnie DeVoe in BET's mini-series on R&B group New Edition (2017).

Destiny and Powers met at a Teen Vogue magazine party in 2015 and they hit it off immediately.

They told We the Urban in 2019 there was an instant attraction but they hid their relationship from fans initially.

"For a minute we tried to hide it for numerous reasons, but as human beings sometimes you want to just shout to the world 'I love this person and I'm happy!'" Destiny said. "We try to find a balance. I'm already a private person and very career driven so reminding people that I am my own person is important."

While their relationship didn't make it, Powers said it's important for young people to see Black love.

"It is so important for our people to see healthy Black love. Whether it's a relationship, marriage or even friendships. Black love gives us hope. When you see Black love flourish, it's powerful."

Tiffany Haddish treated herself to a spa treatment that has everyone on social media talking. The 42-year-old comic actress fumigated her vajayjay in preparation for the next love of her life.

On Monday, Tiffany shared photos of herself getting a vaginal smoke treatment in Eritrea, with the hashtag "#vaginalsmoking."

Tiffany, whose father was a refugee from Eritrea, captioned the photos:

"Eritrea spa treatment it call Tsh. They put butter in my hair, turmeric & honey on my face, Sesame oil all over my body oh and butter in my hot box.

"Then they put burning wood in a hole in the ground and you sit in the smoke and sweat. Baby I am ready to be tasted BRING IN THE MEN."

Tiffany and rapper Common, real name Lonnie Rashid Lynn, broke up in November after dating for a year.

In an interview with Fox Soul's "Hollywood Unlocked Uncensored," Common, 49, spoke out about his break up with Tiffany.

"I don't think the love really dispersed," he explained, saying the spark in their relationship faded once COVID-19 restrictions were lifted. "I think it was just like we weren't feeding the relationship."

Tiffany responded on Instagram, saying, "thank you for setting me free" and "what is for me wants me too."

Meagan Good took steps to heal herself emotionally and physically after breaking up with her husband of 9 years, Pastor DeVon Franklin.

Like all relationships based on sexual attraction, problems arose once the chemistry faded.

Rumor has it that Good and Franklin cheated throughout their marriage. But they always prayed on it and reconciled.

In his divorce filing, Pastor Franklin, 43, said the couple separated in April and their marital bonds were irretrievably broken.

In an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Good said she stopped drinking alcohol and sought mental therapy when her world collapsed. The Jumping the Broom star said she found her strength in the bottom of a liquor bottle. But she knew getting drunk every day wasn't the answer.

Ulices Ramales / BACKGRID

The 40-year-old actress told Yahoo Lifestyle her mental health was her priority.

"It's everything. As I've gotten older, I can pinpoint the things I haven't dealt with. I was like, you need to look under the hood, you need a good therapist, you need to take time to make sure that your well-being and your spirit is your priority."

FayesVision/WENN.com

"This year I took a moment — [turning] 40 was about to happen. Around April, I stopped drinking and really leaned into therapy. I got very intentional about [wellness] because I wanted to go into 40 with peace of mind, with unexplainable joy, with more sense of self and a wholeness. I have a tendency to jump over things or go around them, instead of walking through them, and this year it was about walking through things and having those days when you’re grieving something from 15 or 20 years ago. Really walking through it."
 

Do you have any small self-care rituals to help you reset?

"I try to hit the reset button every morning internationally: I breathe, I pray. I make it a point not to touch my phone. I'll put on gospel or uplifting music, something to give me strength. As the day goes on and if I'm in a moment where I'm stressed out, I'll take a beat and steal away somewhere. I'll go into myself and just breathe and pray; I'll find that peace and reset my brain. Everything else can wait for five minutes."

What's your mantra for life?

"My authenticity is my superpower. There's something beautiful about knowing there's no one in the world like you. When you're not authentic, you're in trouble because you're not in alignment with who you are. When you're truly authentic, we bring the right people into our lives."

Steph and Ayesha Curry allegedly have an open marriage like most power couples try to do when the chemistry fades.

Ayesha celebrated her husband's NBA milestone after he broke Ray Allen's 3-point record this week.

"2974 and counting. Congrats my baby. I love you so much! You did that. To God be the glory. I'm so proud of ya @stephencurry30," she wrote on Instagram.

Moments later, a tip was sent to IG Account Deuxmoi, calling out Steph and Ayesha for masquerading as a happily married couple when they're really living a lie.

"Have it on good authority that this well known NBA couple aren't as faithful in love as their social media and image make them out to be! They both have side hookups and flings but keep it very private to keep up the perfect family image they show to the world. I was shocked to learn, they've been together for so long."

If you recall, Steph's parents, Sonya and Dell, called it quits after both got tired of their open marriage.

Last year, a rumor circulated that Steph and Ayesha were headed to divorce court.
-
We believed it because Ayesha went to great lengths to prove the rumor was false. Most celebrities typically ignore false rumors.

Back in September, Ayesha shared photos of their wedding vow renewals on Instagram:

"A couple of weeks ago @stephencurry30 surprised me with the most beautiful vow renewal ceremony. He even picked out my dress for me and had it waiting. Our big girl Riley officiated and Ryan and Canon walked me through the grass of our backyard. It's everything I've always dreamed of but didn't know could be possible in this way. A moment I will never forget. I love you @stephencurry30."

Some people take orgasms for granted, but researchers say experiencing the big O has more benefits than just enhancing your pleasure.

Women who experience daily orgasms know that the big O comes with health benefits such as sleep aid and pain relief.

"Some people orgasm multiple times, some once, and some none, and that's all totally normal," says Rosara Torrisi.

Torrisi, a certified sex therapist and founding director of the Long Island Institute of Sex Therapy, tells Health.com that orgasms, particularly masturbating, can reveal what's normal and abnormal about your sexual health.

"It's one of the few times people, especially people with vulvas, give themselves permission to touch their genitals," Torrisi says.

The following are seven health benefits of orgasms.
 

1. Mood enhancer

Orgasms release a flood of feel-good hormones that help you calm down and relieve stress, Kate White, MD, MPH, tells Health.

According to Dr. White, these hormones include:

  • Oxytocin, aka the "love hormone," which also aids with baby bonding.
  • Dopamine, released by the reward and pleasure centers of the brain.
  • Endorphins, the "natural opiates" that induce a sense of euphoria and reduce stress.
  • Serotonin, which helps regulate mood, appetite, and sleep.
  • Prolactin, that initiates milk production after pregnancy and plays a role in bonding.

 

2. Orgasm helps you connect with your body

Touching yourself helps to reveal body changes that you may not know about, such as yeast infections or lesions on your genitals. "It is really helpful to know what your body feels like, looks like, and even smells like," Logan Levkoff, PhD, tells Health, "because if you don't know what the norm is for your body, it's really difficult to identify when something is off."

3. Self love teaches you what feels good for you

Most women can reach intense orgasms by themselves -- without the help of a partner. Some women are okay with that because they know what feels good for them.

"A lot of people want to have orgasms consistently from penetration, and the truth is that some people can come consistently from that, but most people can't," Dr. White tells Health.com.

Dr. Levkoff says self-pleasuring without a partner can be empowering. "Know that you don't have to rely on someone else to make you a sexual being or to make you feel a certain way."
 

4. Orgasm strengthens relationships

Beyond having a relationship with yourself, orgasms can bond you tighter with your mate - who you don't have to depend on for pleasure.
 

5. Orgasm improves sleep

PeopleImages / E+

Everyone knows orgasms improves sleep. This is achieved through sex hormones that are released in abundance before, during, and after the big O.

In edition to hormones, the muscles relaxing after the big O is similar to muscle relaxation techniques.

"Some people also build a habit of orgasming before bed, so it's a part of their sleep routine," Torrisi explains.
 

6. Orgasm maintains pelvic floor muscles

Frequent orgasms can be as beneficial as cardio exercises. An orgasm is a series of muscle contractions, that maintain or strengthen your pelvic floor, says Levkoff.
 

7. Orgasm relieves pain

Orgasm-induced hormones like oxytocin and endorphins act as natural painkillers, says Dr. White.

"Those pleasurable feelings tend to dull feelings of pain," Levkoff says, noting this may be why some people find that orgasms relieve menstrual cramps.

DaniLeigh might spend the Christmas holidays behind bars after her fight with rapper DaBaby over the weekend.

DaBaby wisely called police after the 26-year-old singer/rapper allegedly attacked him when he ordered her to leave his condo with their 3-month-old baby girl.

"I just want her peacefully removed, which they need to hurry up (and) do as we speak," he said on IG Live. "I ain't even want that behavior on display but it's OK, man this too shall pass, it's all good."

North Carolina officers responded to DaBaby's call and arrested DaniLeigh. A police source tells TMZ she is facing two counts of simple assault. She may face jail time if convicted.

DaniLeigh, born Danielle Leigh Curiel to Dominican parents, is seen in Instagram Live videos yelling at the rapper.

"This man is mad bc I had a plan b sent to his condo," she claimed on social media.

"All he wanna do is cum in me with no responsibility... Obviously he [probably] want me out so he can f**k on his baby mother and other hoes who been known we been together this whole time while I just had my first child. This all goes to say that this man is a f**king coward!"

She also accused DaBaby of sleeping with his other baby mama and a plethora of groupies.

DaniLeigh, pictured in March, admitted she tried to play house with DaBaby in an effort to domesticate him, but he refused to play along.

"This all goes to say that this man is a f–king coward !!!!!" she shouted. She added that she was asleep after cooking him dinner when he came in with his assistants and tried to kick her out.

"Ima learn and Ima grow ... but this right here ain't it.. and I'm sorry to my baby that her father is kicking her out her home at 3 months," she said.

Someone edited DaniLeigh's Wikipedia page to drag DaBaby to say he went live on DaniLeigh's Instagram to "gaslight, disrespect and embarrass both mother & child".

Will Smith's first marriage was tested by his emotional crush on actress Stockard Channing (pictured). Smith opened up about his emotional crush on Channing in his memoir titled WILL.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star was in the first few months of his marriage to Sheree Zampino when he played con artist Paul Poitier in the film Six Degrees of Separation.

The movie was inspired by the real-life story of David Hampton, a homeless homosexual who stole from wealthy elites on the Upper East Side. They welcomed him into their homes when he said he was the son of actor Sidney Poitier.

Smith said Method acting help him to become Paul Poitier in the flesh. He reveals he couldn't shake the character he played.

He wrote:

"Sheree and I were in the first few months of our marriage with a brand-new baby and for Sheree, I can imagine that this experience was unsettling to say the least. She'd married a guy named Will Smith and now she was living with a guy named Paul Poitier. And to make matters worse, during shooting I fell in love with Stockard Channing.

"After the film wrapped, Sheree and (son) Trey and I moved back to L.A. Our marriage was off to a rocky start. I found myself desperately yearning to see and speak to Stockard."

In an Esquire interview in February, 2015, Smith said "my character was in love with Stockard Channing's character, and I actually fell in love with Stockard Channing."

He added:

"So the movie was over and I went home, and I was dying to see Stockard. I was like, 'Oh no! What have I done?' That was my last experience with Method acting, where you're reprogramming your mind. You're actually playing around with your psychology. You teach yourself to like things and to dislike things. It is a really dangerous place when you get good at it."

Renell Medrano for GQ

Two years ago singer August Alsina revealed he had a sordid affair with actress Jada Pinkett Smith, who is married to A-list actor Will Smith.

At the time of his scandalous revelation, Alsina, 29, said Smith, 53, knew about his wife's May-December relationship and gave them his blessing.

In the November 2021 issue of GQ magazine, Smith admitted both he and Jada, 50, have stepped outside their marriage over the years in order to keep their Love alive.

"Jada never believed in conventional marriage," Smith tells the men's fashion magazine.

"Jada had family members that had an unconventional relationship. So she grew up in a way that was very different than how I grew up. There were significant endless discussions about, what is relational perfection? What is the perfect way to interact as a couple? And for the large part of our relationship, monogamy was what we chose, not thinking of monogamy as the only relational perfection."

Smith, who shares daughter Willow, 20, and son Jaden, 23, with Jada, admits they both opted for an open marriage after years of monogamy.

"We have given each other trust and freedom, with the belief that everybody has to find their own way. And marriage for us can't be a prison. And I don't suggest our road for anybody. I don't suggest this road for anybody. But the experiences that the freedoms that we've given one another and the unconditional support, to me, is the highest definition of love."

Smith said he often called legendary actor Denzel Washington for marital advice over the years.

"Throughout the years, I would always call Denzel. He's a real sage. I was probably 48 or something like that and I called Denzel. He said, 'Listen. You've got to think of it as the funky 40. Everybody's 40s are funky.' He said, 'But just wait till you hit the fuck-it 50s.' He said, 'Just bear with your 40s.' I stopped and I was like, 'The funky 40s and the fuck-it 50s?' And that's exactly what happened. It just became the fuck-it 50s, and I gave myself the freedom to do whatever I wanted to do."

Will also explained to GQ magazine why he scrapped the making of Emancipation, the film that tells the story behind the photo of "Whipped Peter."

The historic photo of the ex-slave's scarred back, taken during an Army medical examination, became known as "The Scourged Back."

The movie was originally scheduled to shoot in Atlanta, Georgia, but Smith pulled the movie out of Georgia in response to Gov. Brian Kemp's new voter protection bill.

"I've always avoided making films about slavery," Smith told GQ writer Wesley Lowery.

"In the early part of my career... I didn't want to show Black people in that light. I wanted to be a superhero. So I wanted to depict Black excellence alongside my white counterparts. I wanted to play roles that you would give to Tom Cruise. And the first time I considered it was Django. But I didn't want to make a slavery film about vengeance."
