Portia Williams do You Really not Know About the Underground Railroad?

Porsha Williams did nothing to silence her critics on the latest episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” when she proved to be confused about a widely-known historical fact.

During a tour of Savannah, GA, the ladies stopped by the first African Baptist church in the nation and were informed that the location was once a stop on the Underground Railroad.

After reminding her co-stars how important Black history is, she made a blunder that Bravo exec Andy Cohen will hopefully ask her about when the reunion show is taped.

Congratulations to Deborah Cohen a courageous young lady who decided to get the OR room dancing just before performing her double Masectomy recently.

Here is Deborah's wish:

"I will be dancing in my little hospital gown and bouffant cap in the Mt. Zion operating room with the surgical and anesthesia teams. My fantasy is for you to play the song (see below) and dance wherever you happen to be (in the kitchen, the carwash, subway platform [Dan!], classroom, Labor and Delivery unit, wherever!) — ideally at 7:30am but really anytime Tuesday. It would be extra remarkable if you could send me a photo (or, better yet, a short video segment) of you dancing (via or I have visions of a healing video montage. Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?"

Deitrick Haddon appears to be Hot (litterally)

Minister Deitrick Haddon appears to have a past lover who wanted the world to know just how HOT minister Deitrick Haddon is.

Allegedly and according to popular blogger funky funkydineva a former lover of Dietrick blasted nude photos of him while sexting her.

Allegedly the affair happened 2008 while Dietrick was married to his first wife.

The funny thing about this story is that Dietrick Haddon who is quick to jump on social media everytime somebody says something about him has yet to respond.

The photos are too graphic to expose on this site, to see for yourselv click on the link above.

From the looks of the sneak peak, Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 6 is going to be off the chain yall!

Since NeNe's show the "New Normal did not get picked up for a second season and Mama comes back to Atlanta to regain her throne as Queen B of the ATL.

Rumors wee swirling that there were going to be some new cast members including Tameka Redmond, Ushers ex wife but I guess she did not make the cut, cause all the orignal cast members from season 5 are back.

Word on the street is that NeNe and Kenya will go at it hard and we get a glimpse of it in the trailer. Cynthia and Peter have the same drama they had a few years ago with a failing business.

Now I know it ain't none of my business, but I would think he should try something else next time cause clearly the bar lounge aint his gift.

Phaedra has two babies now and it looks like Apollo may be getting the itch. I pray that aint the case.

Portia looks like she is living the life as her husband appears to be having second thoughts (go figure)

Finally, my favorite housewife, Kandi, need to tell her Mama that "She is grown and she got this" when it comes to her man issues. Cause some things Mama just can't get in the middle of unless she is asked.

Just in case you did not notice I am using my ebonic voice today so don't go sending me no comments about bad grammar. (lol)

I don't know about yall, but I am going to be glued to my TV on November 3rd.

Pastor Ronald Harris death appears to be surrounded by an alleged sexual encounter with the shooters wife. who accidentally sent images to her husband instead of the great pastor, and when the jig was up for her, she cried Rape on the Pastor. (smh) what is most disturbing to me is that I am not surprise to learn that something like this might have been in the mix.  Its a sad day in the life of the church.

Here is the story:
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso addressed the media today regarding the case of a pastor who was shot and killed in front of his congregation.
[quote]"This is a shooting that took place in front of 60 some people, so it's going to take time to come to a conclusion," he said. "It will not just take days but several weeks to get to the truth and the bottom of this."[/quote]

Sheriff Mancuso explained that the high-profile and public nature of this crime has led to a number of rumors and interest from the media. He also noted that those rumors prompted a phone call from the FBI.

[quote]"There's a lot of speculation as to what took place and the motive in this case and I'm going to tell you that we are going to proceed with great caution in this investigation," he said. "You have so many rumors going on that it sometimes clouds the water for our investigation."[/quote]

The incident took place on Friday, September 27, at the Tabernacle of Praise Worship Center. Woodrow Karey, Jr., 53, walked into the church and shot Pastor Ronald J. Harris, Sr., twice. He then fled the scene and called law enforcement shortly thereafter.

[quote]"It's my understanding that they were great friends at some point," Sheriff Mancuso explained. "I'm sure we're going to get responses from both sides saying that they are great people."[/quote]

The possible motive investigators are currently working to confirm is that Pastor Harris was involved in some sort of sexual relationship with Karey's wife.

[quote]"[A week before the actual shooting, Karey] stated that he had received some inappropriate images from his wife to Pastor Harris," Sheriff Mancuso said. "Then, evidently, he confronted his wife and she filed a rape charge against Pastor Harris on Wednesday, September 25."[/quote]

Deputies were unable to interview Pastor Harris regarding the rape allegation before he was shot and killed on Friday.

"That's where we are in this investigation," he said. "At this time the charges against Mr. Karey are appropriate based on the information we have."

Karey is being held in the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center for Second-Degree Murder. His bond was set at $1 million.

National syndicated Radio Show Host Coco Brother (Cory Condrey) released an E-mail on May 22, letting everyone know that he would be leaving his radio show broadcast Coco Live to start something new and on his OWN station.

He put it on record that he was NOT being pushed out by Radio One but he was accepting the call from God to help his wife Joann save our Youth and become an owner of a radio station which will focus on building the Kingdom. The couple will begin focusing on their Exodus youth project immediately and Cory plans to return to radio in a new capacity this fall.

Cory and Joann are seeking volunteers and partners in their new ministry and asks that we be in prayer and work with them:

[quote]The thing you learn in radical faith moments like this is, who your REAL friends are! Was it about what I can or could do for you? Or was it really genuine? Because I’ve been here before, I know what to expect. I’m very excited to see who my real friends will be in this season as Joann and I step out of the boat to REACH out for a LOST generation.[/quote]

Here’s what Core and Joann are asking from us now:

1) Please continue to pray for us.
2) Become a volunteer this summer . (CLICK HERE FOR APPLICATION)
3) Become a Life Partner & give to our cause by logging onto
4) Get the word out! All youth leaders, get ready for an awesome 2 week camp experience that will be FREE to you! Registration is in 2 weeks-

Read his Email below and also check out his Prayer on Demand message.

It’s Been Great!

That was the title of my email Wednesday the 22nd Of May 2013 to a distinguished group of people in radio (CLICK HERE to read)….Ever since the end of 2012 I’ve been in prayer about what is next.

Now I know….

Continue to follow the voice of God! It’s the same voice I heard in 2004 – 2005 when I was in Hip-Hop on WHTA Hot 107.9 in Atlanta…. FOLLOW ME! Leave it ALL– FOLLOW ME! It was one of the biggest steps of faith I had ever taken. I heard that same voice on Wednesday, 8 years to the day.

When I look back at that day, if I never stepped out on faith, then I would never have been able to be used by God to pour into so many people every night with the love of Christ!

I never thought after being obedient on that day, God would give me everything I desired in radio! My goal was to be the first African American male syndicated at night on a mainstream platform. Syndicated on R&B, Hip- Hop and Gospel stations… ministering the Gospel of Jesus across the country. No one believed that a night time urban radio show could be syndicated, this was truly The LORD’S doing!

I never leave a place until I have accomplished all I am called to do…. When I look back, powerful interviews like 1st Lady Michelle Obama for 1 hour, talking people off the bridge from committing suicide, ushering the presence of God into people’s car, home, job thru the radio. Walking and standing by our gospel artist during their toughest moments. Loving on Leaders/ Pastors through the storm. Seeing live and real miracles take place through the radio. People who were blind, now able to see… Watching the LORD pack out arenas all around the world and seeing people get saved and baptized.

But most of all, we have blazed a trail for others to come and do what we dreamed and envisioned. The greatest compliment anyone can ever give you is to hold on to what you created. So I am very excited about whoever comes behind me because they will have an opportunity that at one point didn’t exist. My work was not in vain. I have only one desire left in radio. When I come back after this summer, I’m coming back to create a legacy that will outlive me. By becoming an owner, we will give many people the same opportunity I had.

But by far…. Exodus still touches my heart! It’s our youth outreach. Everytime we do this evangelistic outreach thousands of young people give their lives to Jesus! It’s incredible, nothing is more fulfilling and rewarding. That’s why I made the decision to leave radio as of Wednedsay May 22, 2013 until after the summer…


Tina Campbell of Mary Mary took to Facebook on behalf of herself and her husband Teddy to seek prayers from her prayer warrior fans to fast and pray with them as they fight to save their marriage, see below:

Los Angeles, CA –– Hi fans and friends. It’s Tina. I hope all of you are well and I thank you for all the love and support you’ve shown my sister and I over the years.

Well, Im actually writing you on behalf of my husband Teddy and I. I’m assuming that many of you have seen or heard about our article in Ebony that discussed the challenges of overcoming infidelity in our marriage. Well since the article, the challenges have worsened. My hope turned into hopelessness & despair and I became unwilling to forgive and fight, until God showed me myself.

My husband’s struggle, was with sexual immorality BUT I have struggled with anger, rage, unforgiveness, pride, just to name a few, for over 2 decades. The devil wanted to use strongholds that took hold of our lives in our childhood, to remain and destroy us as adults. So now instead of being mad at each other we’re mad at the devil and we’re ready to fight.

Today we began a 30 day fast (May 24th-June 22nd) for complete deliverance & restoration. If u are able to, please fast and/or pray daily that God would answer our prayers and give us a deeper love & commitment to him and to each other. We believe he still works miracles and he can give us the greatest marriage we could have ever imagined. We can pray alone BUT your prayers will certainly help.

Some Scriptures To Target Your Prayer

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

James 5:16

“Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.”

Thanks in advance. Talk to you in 30 days.

Judy Duncan, Michael's sister, tells TMZ she's hired a lawyer to investigate the circumstances surrounding the change to the actor's will in April 2012, making Omarosa the main beneficiary.

Judy believes MCD was not of sound mind when he made the changes ... because as early as December 2011, the actor was not himself, slurring words and stumbling around.

Judy says her suspicions about Omarosa intensified when MCD was hospitalized following his heart attack ... telling us Omarosa was fixated on MCD's money when he was on life support.

Another thorn in Judy's side ... Omarosa has already sold a bunch of MCD's personal effects (watches, cars, his "Green Mile" director's chair, awards, etc.). Judy says Omarosa sold the stuff without the family's knowledge ... and she's pissed.

Wow Rev. that's not so pastoral!!!

Chicago Grandmother and grandson charged with murder of Grandma's husband

A Chicago grandmother has been arrested and charged with commissioning her grandson to kill his grandfather and namessake because she was “sick” of him, according to police.
Janet Strickland, 64, was charged with one count each of first-degree murder and armed robbery with a firearm after her 72-year-old husband, William Strickland, was gunned down in front of their home by his 19-year-old grandson, also named William Strickland, as the older man waited for a ride to an early morning dialysis appointment on Saturday, March 2. SMDH!
Strickland was not present at her bond hearing on Saturday where bail was set at $500,000. She was being held at a hospital where she was being treated for lung disease and high blood pressure. The grandmother plotted with her teenage grandson to kill her husband because she was “sick” of the older William Strickland and wanted him dead.
“[They] discussed on numerous occasions killing the victim,” said Assistant State’s Attorney Jacqueline Kwilos during the hearing. “[Janet Strickland] stated numerous times to her grandson that she was sick of his grandfather and that she wanted her husband dead. 
She stated she wished he was not here and she wanted him gone.”

In  the days leading up to March 2, the pair considered hiring someone to carry out the hit. But the grandmother wanted the murder done quickly and the younger William Strickland resolved that he would be the one to kill his grandfather, according to Cook County prosecutors.
Janet Strickland allegedly allowed her grandson to take her husband’s gun and use her car to carry out the homicide. “When the defendant unlocked the door and let the victim leave for his dialysis appointment, she admitted that she knew the victim would be killed by the grandson,” said Kwilos.
Strickland watched as her grandson shot her husband six times in the back at around 3:30 a.m. when he exited the home they shared.
As her husband laid dying, the pair stole his casino bag filled with money, withdrew money from his bank account and went on a shopping spree.
Janet was also the beneficiary to all of her husbands assets went out and bought her grandson a used car, home and furnishings for herself while her grandson used it to purchase tattoos, cell phone and gym shoes. (Chile Pleeze!)
The grandson also named William after his grandfather, was living with his mother and siblings in Wisconsin before moving in with his grandparents a few months ago, neighbor Theolen Shears, 84 said.  The younger Strickland was arrested on March 30 and has been without bond at the Cook County jail in connection with the murder and his grandmother on Saturday they both face life in prison which in my belief would be just.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Porsha Williams Divorce getting Nasty

It appears that the divorce between Porsha Williams and Kordell Stewart is going to be nasty one.   
Allegedly Porsha is staying away from home for several days and when she does make it home she has to call the police for entry claiming Kordell is locking her out of the house because he has another woman there. 
 Kordell  is firing back  back saying  he only locks the house at night for security purposes. He claims the real problem is Porsha frequently leaves home for several days straight and sometimes comes back between 2:00 AM and 4:00 AM smelling like alcohol.
As far as the other woman Kordell has an answer for that too, saying, A it’s the nanny he was forced to hire because Porsha is “neglecting her responsibilities to her stepson.” 
Really Kordell, last time I checked that is YOUR son so whose ultimate responsibility is it, now that YOU decided to end the marriage, Chile Pleeze get somewhere and sit down.

Bobby Brown has been released from jail after serving just nine hours of his 55 day sentence.
Brown turned himself in Wednesday shortly before 10 a.m. and was released at 6:58 p.m., according to jail records. He was released and put on electronic monitoring by Los Angeles County Probation, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Office said. The R&B singer is required to wear an ankle bracelet.
Brown, 44, was sentenced last month to 55 days in jail and four years of summary probation for his most recent drunk driving arrest.
He is currently home with his family, a representative for the R&B star said in a statement to ABC News.
“Mr. Brown has accepted responsibility for what occurred last October 2012. Mr. Brown is pleased that the matter has been resolved and to be home with this wife and young son,” Brown’s attorney, Christopher Brown, said in a statement to ABC News.
Brown’s arrest Oct. 24 marked his second in a year. His first DUI arrest was in March 2012. He has long struggled with alcohol and drug abuse. He was also charged with a DUI in Florida in 1996.

TV Land is making history.  The women of the “Mary Tyler Moore Show” will reunite on television for the first time since the show’s  finale in 1977, the cable channel announced today, as Mary Tyler Moore, Valerie Harper, Georgia Engel  and Cloris Leachman  join  Betty White on an upcoming episode of “Hot in Cleveland.”
In the episode, Elka, played by Betty White, and  Mamie Sue, played by Georgia Engel, decide to get their old bowling team together after a falling out decades earlier. The team,  GLOB: the Gorgeous Ladies of Bowling, works in all the “Mary Tyler Moore” women.
Harper’s recent announcement that she has terminal brain cancer should make her appearance especially poignant for her castmates — and viewers.
This will be the second  “Hot in Cleveland” visit for  Mary Tyler Moore:  Moore played White’s cell mate on an episode in season two.
“Shows like ‘Hot in Cleveland,’ which stars four women, would not be here today without ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show,’ and its incredible female-led cast,”  TV Land’s President Larry W. Jones said in a statement today. “Mary, Valerie, Cloris, Georgia and, of course, our Betty, were all pioneers for women in television.”
“Hot in Cleveland” returns for its fifth season on June 19.

Regina King on setting record straight with US Weekly and Bossip reporting of her break up with Cleo (The Huxtables)

From US Weekly (via Bossip):
The Huxtable is once again a single man. After over two years of dating, Malcolm-Jamal Warner has split with girlfriend Regina King, a source confirms to Us Weekly — and it wasn’t the most amicable of partings. “He said he wasn’t feeling it anymore,” the source adds, explaining that Warner, 42, asked King and her young son (with ex-husband Ian Alexander Jr.) to move out of the house they shared. “She’s still very brokenhearted,” says the insider of the Southland actress, 42.
Friends since the 1980s when both were child TV stars — Warner on The Cosby Show and King on 227 — the twosome only rarely opened up about their romance. “I believe the universe has a plan, and we probably wouldn’t have been ready years ago. We both had to do whatever we had to do to be ready for each other now,” Jerry Maguire actress King told Parade in January 2012.
Said Warner in an October 2011 interview with BET: “We like to protect what we have because it’s very special and very precious . . . But I will say that it’s a relationship that makes all the sense in the world.”
The couple shot down engagement rumors in early 2011. King divorced Ian Alexander Sr. after a decade of marriage back in 2007. Warner has never wed and has no children.
“Malcolm and I have a lot in common,” King told Essence in January 2011. “we’ve both been child actors and were also blessed to be raised by incredible mothers who instilled good values in us. Things are maturing nicely.”
Chile Pleeze, you got it going on Regina, NEXT!@
