Ladies, this post is for the men. You are welcome to lurk.

A Sandrarose.com reader requested this post after I commented on Hello Beautiful's post titled "11 Black Men Who Could Have Been This Year's Sexiest Man Alive."

Hello Beautiful was disappointed that PEOPLE magazine, which caters to a majority white audience, picked a white actor as this year's "Sexiest Man Alive."

It probably didn't dawn on Hello Beautiful that Black men graced the last three 'Sexiest Man' covers.

The following women were chosen for this post because they are intelligent Black women who are successful in their chosen fields. Our community needs good role models for our young women.

Without further ado, check out Sandrarose.com's 11 Black Women Who Could Have Been This Year's Sexiest Woman Alive.

FYI: This post is for the men. Ladies, you are welcome to lurk.

Instagram model Phaith Montoya went viral over the weekend after she tweeted about the length of her real hair.

Phaith took to Twitter.com to share before and after photos of her healthy hair growth. She captioned the photos: "My hair growth 1 year apart."

Her followers were in awe, because it's so rare these days to see a BBW (Big Beautiful Woman) wearing her own hair.

Plus-size models like Phaith are in demand on nearly every runway during fashion week.

Phaith has over 250,000 followers on Instagram alone. BBWs are so popular that they've quit their jobs to create Only Fans accounts. The money pours in from men who love women with meat on their bones.

Check out more photos of Phaith below.

A 28-year-old Atlanta woman was killed after falling from a Lamborghini that sped off when she accused the driver of robbing her.

Authorities say Catherine Khan started fighting with a man inside a Lamborghini after accusing him of stealing her wallet, identification, and a precious family heirloom.

The incident occurred on Monday, Oct. 11, at around 11 p.m. near a restaurant where Khan worked.

Khan was reportedly drunk and fighting with the man who allegedly stole her purse which contained her wallet, credit cards, an item belonging to her grandmother, and her ID.

The incident, captured on cell phone video, shows Khan slapping a white Lamborghini and yelling, "Call the cops! I just got robbed... My ID, my card, everything. Everything is gone!"

Khan then hopped into the vehicle and continued yelling that she had been robbed.

Police are trying to determine if Khan was pushed from the vehicle or if she fell while trying to jump out.

Khan's father, Noor Khan told Fox 5 Atlanta News that Catherine was an organ donor. He said the doctor told him her organs were donated to two babies.

"I can't get my daughter back. I can't get her back. What happened to my daughter, I don't want to happen to any other girl," said Noor Khan.

Catherine was the eldest of his four children.

Mark Gagnier called 911 after he kicked in the door and found his daughter dead at the Cortland Apartments in the 5200 block of Pointe West Circle at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 29.

In the kitchen, Jenae's killer, Kevin Accorto, 34, was barely alive with a knife buried in his neck. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Gagnier says Accorto spent two days in Jenae's "destroyed" apartment, scrawling rambling messages on the walls and doors.

The family tells TMZ Jenae was a huge fan of Cardi B's. They reached out privately to the Atlanta rapper to extend an invite to the memorial service on Saturday in Houston.

There is no pressure on Cardi to attend the celebration of life. The family says they understand she's a busy woman and they're just thankful Cardi brought awareness to the case.

Grover says if Cardi does show up, her daughter would have been blown away and excited, and everyone would just be grateful she took the time to pay her respects and send love.

When Jenae didn't return his calls, Mark Gagnier and his girlfriend rushed to her home at the Cortland Apartments in the 5200 block of Pointe West Circle at approximately 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

"I know my daughter and when I got to my daughter's house and it was locked up and she's not answering my phone call, which is not like her, I knew something was up. So I didn't hesitate to kick the door down," said Gagnier.

Gagnier discovered Jenae's body at the foot of the stairs.

He initially thought she fell down the stairs and died. Then he entered the kitchen and found 34-year-old Kevin Accorto, still alive with a knife buried in his neck.

"He was twitching, he was gurgling... He was there for like two days, writing on the walls.

"There's blood all over the apartment. Supposedly, when I kicked in the door, he ended his life.

"For me to see that, I kind of just was in shock. I just stood there."

"What I saw, I wouldn't want any parent to go through," Gagnier told KTRK-TV.

Gagnier said he often talked to his daughter about her risky lifestyle.

"My monthly conversation is, 'Jenae you have all these followers. Some probably because they love you, some because they like your look, some more crazy, and some obsessed.'"

If you wondered why Falynn Guobadia isn't sashaying down runways during Fashion Week, she blames Michael Costello for killing her career.

The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' friend shared an alleged incident with the fashion designer that led her to quit modeling.

Falynn said the 'Project Runway' designer made her feel "uncomfortable and inadequate" when she was a young model.

"[Because] of this traumatic experience, unfortunately, it was the end of my pursuit to become a fashion model," she wrote.

Falynn, a 31-year-old mother of four, said she auditioned for Costello's fashion show at LA Fashion Week at age 23. She was instructed to bring a particular type of underwear.

However, when she showed up on the day of the event with the underwear, she learned she was shut out of the show.

"I see Michael and his sister talking in a corner and looking at me with this look on their faces as if I was the scum of the Earth," she wrote.

"Then, in front of all of the models and his team, they come over to me and say, 'Someone was supposed to call you. We don't need you for the show and have nothing for you to wear.'

"All of the models gasped and covered their faces. I was embarrassed and ashamed. I ran outside and cried for two hours. I never auditioned to model again."

Falynn is going through a messy divorce from Simon Guobadia who is engaged to RHOA star Porsha Williams.

Costello, 38, recently came under fire for allegedly calling Black fashion designer Maxie James the n-word.

Singer Leona Lewis also claims he was rude and body shamed her years ago. Lewis has since accepted Costello's apology.

An Instagram model with three children to support is pleading with Internet users to donate money to GoFundMe to help her repay a PPP loan.

The woman named Lakeisha G. applied for an emergency Covid-19 relief loan and was approved for $20,000 in 2020.

Millions of Americans were also approved for loans for small businesses that only exist on paper or in their minds.

Those fraudsters are now scrambling to find the cash to repay the loans or buy time to avoid prison.

Lakeisha launched a GoFundMe page to raise the money to repay her loan. So far, she has raised nearly $4,000 of her $20,000 goal.

The desperate mom wrote: "I got 20k ppp loan now the feds after me plz help I can't do jail!! I got 3 kids dat need me!!!"

In an update on Monday, she wrote: "Keep the donations coming y'all my kids need me out here frfr [sic]."

In Georgia, hundreds of people have already been charged with submitting false claims to exploit taxpayer funded pandemic relief programs.

On March 24, ten people in Georgia, Washington DC and Maryland were arrested and charged with working as a group "to submit fraudulent loan applications on behalf of non-existent businesses as part of the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)."

The defendants include 38-year-old Alicia Quarterman of Fayetteville, Georgia, who received $490,000. And Katrina Lawson, a former deputy sheriff for Fulton County, Georgia, who obtained at least $224,000 in PPP loans.

"The defendants allegedly abused both programs by submitting fraudulent applications and obtaining thousands of dollars that should have gone to support struggling businesses," wrote Acting U.S. Attorney Kurt R. Erskine in a statement. "We will work tirelessly to protect the integrity of the EIDL and PPP and to help small businesses stay afloat."
