Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment

Steve Harvey will be signing his new book at the local Borders Books and Music in Largo, MD Caps at the BLVD TODAY!

Steve Harvey, the host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show, can't count the number of impressive women he's met over the years, whether it's through the "Strawberry Letters" segment of his program or while on tour for his comedy shows. These are women who can run a small business, keep a household with three kids in tiptop shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. Yet when it comes to relationships, they can't figure out what makes men tick. Why? According to Steve it's because they're asking other women for advice when no one but another man can tell them how to find and keep a man. In Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Steve lets women inside the mindset of a man and sheds lights on concepts and questions such as:
– The Ninety Day Rule: Ford requires it of its employees. Should you require it of your man?
– How to spot a mama's boy and what if anything you can do about it.
– When to introduce the kids. And what to read into the first interaction between your date and your kids.
– The five questions every woman should ask a man to determine how serious he is.
– And more...
Sometimes funny, sometimes direct, but always truthful, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is a book you must read if you want to understand how men think when it comes to relationships.


Readers give it 3 1/2 stars

Pictures will post of the signing hopefully Monday

I Just Refuse to Believe This!


BET Honoree Mary J. Blige
It has been reported by a few sites that Mary J. Blige and husband Kendu Isaacs have refused to let Keyshia Cole a tribute to her for the BET Honors event.

It has been rumored the Kendu was the one who shut Kee-Kee down stating that she can’t sing to Mary because there are too many comparison and they don’t need that at this event.

In my opinion they both have had struggles and like the next person MJB can be a mentor to KC. They are both in two different categories these days so there are no comparisons to be made. Simply put there is not another MJB nor another KC they are two women who have had heart break, family struggles, and self doubt along with the rest of the world the only they we can say about the two is they put it to music.

The Awards were taped here in DC at the Warner Theater during Inauguration weekend and set to air 9 February 2009 @ 9pm hosted by Gabrielle Union. I will need my sista MJB to speak out on this non-sense before then.

Other honorees were B. Smith, Judith Jameson and Tyler Perry who was presented his award by Grammy Winner Whitney Houston.

Is It True?


Did Kelly fire her “Dad”? It is rumored that Kelly Rowland has fired her current manager Matthew Knowles. It seems that the former Destiny Child’s member has been meeting with Simon Fuller of 19 Entertainment.

According to sources at Sony/BMG the 27 year old singer is unhappy with the management and feel as thought the spotlight is always focus on Beyonce and now Solange Knowles.

Will this put a choke hold on the singer’s relationship with her “sisters” Beyonce and Solange let’s hope not…after all business is just that BUSINESS.

And her is just a conspiracy thought that I have had for sometime now…is it just me or do the two actually look alike? Am I the only one who think they are actually father and daughter?

Only Oprah Has This Type of Power


Who Else But Oprah could actually win a Senate seat and not run!
Governor Blagojevich told Good Morning America he considered Ms. Oprah Winfrey to fill President Obama's empty Seanate seat. He is quoted as saying that Ms. O "was obviously someone with a much brader bully pulpit than other seantors." However Governor Blagojevich did not appoint Ms. O because he "feared it might seem gimmicky and Oprah would not accept the job.

I know he has a shady past but you know everyone would have kept quite if she would have one the seat!
BTW...Ms.O can I please have some of your shoes!

GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE!

designed by Jason Wu
designed by Isabel Toledo
First Lady Michelle Obama stepped out in an Isabel Toledo designed yellow/gold-embossed coat and a matching dress, green patent Jimmy Choo “Glacier” shoes with J-Crew gloves for the swearing in of her husband President Barak Obama. Later that evening she rocked a dress designed by Jason Wu….which was FIYAH!
Isebell Toledo
Jason Wu
Now the Black Artists Association is upset that the new first lady did not wear any designs by African-Americans. According to Amnau Eele, the co-founder of the BAA and former model has this to say, “It’s fine and good if you want to be all “Kumbaya” and “We Are the World” by representing all different countries. But if you are going to have Isabel Toledo do the inauguration dress, and Jason Wu do the evening gown, why not have Kevan Hall, B Micheal, Stephen Burrows or any of the other black designers do something too.?” She also added “It’s one thing to look at the world without color but she had seven slots to wear designer clothes. Why wasn’t she wearing the clothes of a black designer? That was our moment.”
Malia & Sasha wearing Crewcuts
President Obama team is rumored to have turned down a tuxedo designed by Sean “Diddy” Combs for and bullet proof tux, and you don’t see Puffy crying! The kids also rocked designes by Crewcuts the kid line by J.Crew. And if I recall correctly it was THEIR moment as well as our, and I don’t recall any one banging down her doors when she was buying clothes off the rack.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick Denies Breakup


According to Sarah Jessica Parker the marriage is doing just fine. The actress is quoted as saying “We don’t even bother to address them”

Why do people want the worst for celebrity couples?

First Lady Says No to the Beanie Babies Dolls


First Lady Michelle O has issued a statement about the new beanie baby dolls Sweet Sasha and Marvelous Malia. In the statement given by her spokeswomen she has said “We believe it is inappropriate to use young, private citizens for marketing purposes.”\
Although the dolls are cute and is a good idea to give our little girls something to look forward to playing with, but the First Lady is absolutely right. Let the children be children and stop trying to make money off of them.

Kanye Kanye Kanye


Mr. West has denied that he will be doing any bisexual porn. After he heard an internet rumor going around about him doing porn the rapper goes to her favorite spot to vent…His Blog!
Kanye writes “YOOOO WHY WON’T YOU LET ME BE GREAT!!! I HAD THE TWO GREATEST DAYS OF MY LIFE AND WHEN I GET BACK…I READ SOME S*&T CLAIMING I SAID I’M DOWN TO DO PORN AND SOME BISEXUAL PORN!!!!! PLEASE I BEG YOU, GIVE ME A BREAK!!!! PLEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!!!!!!!! LET ME BE GREAT!!!!”
All of this came from an interview that claimed Kanye West said “I know people will find that as another thing to hate me on, but f*&k it. I’m open to doing porn. hell; I’ll even do bisexual scenes. Myself, another man and a women or just me and tow women. I know people will find that as some weird s*&t but I am who I am.”
Kanye do and say some wild stuff but only he know if it’s true or not.
Oh BTW, Kanye writes in all caps on his blog, and check out 808’s & Heartbreaks.

Lil Kim Please Sit Down Somewhere....ANY WHERE!



I have never ever thought that Lil Kim did not love Biggie; the movie showed that, but it also showed how Biggie was a womanizer and how feed off the fact that Lil Kim had low self-esteem. Now Lil Kim wants to step out of pocket and throw blows at the actress,Naturi Naughton, who portrayed her in the movie Nortorious. Here is what Ms. Kimberly Jones has to say:

“I feel like I was not portrayed how I should have been in this movie. I was in love
with BIG and he was in love with me. I was never a JUMP-OFF, I know this and BIG knew this. I wasn’t even able to choose who I wanted to portray me in this movie. I would have never picked Naturi, she doesn’t have a Lil Kim aura at all! She looks nothing like I looked back then. We have NO similarities. Watching her on-screen was so “dreadful” as Simon Cowell would say. She is tasteless and talentless. Never once did she contact me for input or to get a feel of me for the character. A “TRUE” actress would contact the source to be the best they can be in portraying someone. That told me right there, she wasn’t right for the part and not to mention, Naturi has got to be one of THE worst actresses I’ve ever seen and I can’t believe they chose her. I really can’t!
Another thing is, I have been dealing with legal matters as far as them not wanting to pay me and sh*t for this movie, got a lawyer involved, so everything is cool with that, but it still doesn’t change my views and feelings. This is truly Faith and Ms. Wallace’s movie. And Ms. Wallace is right, this isn’t a Lil’ Kim movie and it’s not about me. I didn’t want it to be about me, I wanted it to be REAL though. And that it is NOT. I take no part in this movie and have nothing to do with it. I love BIG and will never stop reppin him. There is NOTHING anyone can do about it. The world will see the Lil Kim story, THE REAL ME! Not some made up bullshit portrayed by a talentless has-been back up singer.”

I’m just waiting for the fake nails and hair to start flying…I need for her sit down and plan her next surgery as a matter of fact plan a therapy session to learn how to love yourself *rolling my eyes*!
