One of our members posted Gilbert's story from his blog regarding his proposal to Laura. For the record Baller Alert posted the engagement days before the other site did and didn't get credit.

In Touch magazine estimates that Beyonce's lacefront wig collection is worth a million dollars! Now that is some premimum hand-tied Remi Yaki hair that chicks like me can only dream of! Since her engagement ring is worth $5 million dollars, I guess it's not a surprised that her ever changing hair is so expensive.
The good thing is though, is that Mrs Carter…Continue
It's amazing that people still do this. Clutching your bag closer to you will not stop someone from attacking you if they really want to. It's a bit stupid, just like the security guard following a black male around the minute they walk into a store!

Which step has the potential to either escalate or diffuse the situation?Conflict is probably one of the few things any of us are able to count on in life. Whether it is with time, finances or with the people around us, it is inevitable and we can’t avoid it.

Mccain, lets just say, he's the biggest prude walking. He couldn't have chosen a better running mate in Sarah Palin, He nor Palin can answer a… Continue
My friend sent this to me, and I thought it a GREAT thing to pass along, especially considering a few of the discussions posted over the last couple of days. And although this is titled, "A Black Woman's Guide to Survival", I think we ALL can benefit from this.
10. BE SELECTIVE IN FRIENDSHIPS.
Friendship is not charity, it's a give-and-take relationship. Your friends should be people you love, admire and… Continue
I didn’t get pregnant by Derrick, but oh well, on to the next. I wanted to be chillin’ somewhere being a Mrs. Super Bowl or Mrs. All Star with a baby in my stomach and quite possibly a big rock on… Continue
Here’s the full episode of the Tyra Banks exposé on skin bleaching in the black community. Just a note to let you know that most chemicals used in skin bleaching creams were outlawed years ago by the FDA.
So if you’re currently using skin bleaching creams, you’re not getting the full on effect unless the product was smuggled in from a foreign countries which still allows the use of said…Continue

I was so mad when Bernard got back from Utah. As usual, he brought home his dirty laundry and I found some lipstick on one of his shirts. Yes ladies, lipstick! and of course it wasn’t mine. The shirt also reeked of perfume…for a split second I was going to storm up to him in a rage and say ‘what the hell is this?’ but I thought about my own infidelity and backed down. What I never…Continue
