ROBIN & PAULA: BEYOND THE BLURRED LINE BY TIFFANY L. RILEY

On February 24, 2014 the entertainment world was shocked by Robin Thicke and Paula Patton’s announcement of their separation. There were some people saying it was only a matter of time, while some were totally taken by surprise.  So I guess everybody wants to know WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED??  Well before I give you the answer to that question, let me give a brief history on this couple.

 

Singer Robin Thicke and his girlfriend, Paula Patton, are on
Paula and Robin in 2004

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton met back in 1991 when they were in high school.  The two were married on June 11, 2005.  Paula is a successful hollywood actress and Robin is an R&B singer signed to Pharrell Williams’s record label Neptunes.  His single “Blurred Lines” was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 12 weeks.  The couple has a 3 year old son named Julian.

Okay so y’all are probably saying “Awww, they’ve been together a long time!  Whatever problems they’re having can be fixed.”  Well, If only it were that simple.  There is one person in this union who decided to sign up for extracurricular activities.  Who is the person???

ROBIN THICKE

In August 2013, The MTV Video Music Awards premiered.  It was full of special guests and great musical performances, but also came with the most talked about shocker of the night…MILEY CYRUS TWERKIN’ ON ROBIN THICKE!!!!!!!!!

GIRL……PUT YOUR TONGUE BACK IN YA MOUTH!!!!!
A HOT MESS!!!!!!!

According to close friends, Paula was not pleased by this performance.  They say that she was very embarrassed and that Robin took things too far with Miley.  Despite being upset Paula pretended it wasn’t a big deal and sort of “laughed” it off.  This would be one of the first blows to their marriage.  Now on to the incident!!!!!
After the MTV Video Music Awards Robin attended an after party where he ran into NYC socialite Lana Scolaro, and the two began hanging out.  Later that night they took a photo together that will probably go down in history as being one of the biggest scandals in 2013.  Here is the infamous photo….

ROBIN KNOW HE BOLD AIN’T HE????  LADIES & GENTLEMEN, YES, ROBIN IS GRABBING THAT GIRL’S BOOTY!!!!!  I GUESS THIS WAS ONE OF THOSE MOMENTS WHERE YOU FORGOT YOU HAD A WIFE HUH ROBIN?! SMH.  He claims that this was purely an accident, that it was real late, and that he was extremely tired.  And what does Ms. Lana have to say for herself????  Well she said that when the picture was being taken she knew that Robin put his hand in the “wrong place”.  DO Y’ALL SMELL THAT???  I SMELL A HEAUX!!!!!!

So what did Paula have to say about this?  Well in front of the media she claimed she didn’t have an issue with the situation.  But once again, close friends of theirs said she was very irate and told Robin to get his act together.  You would think he would listen to his wife and show her some respect; however, a few months later he had yet another reckless moment.

In January 2014 Robin was performing at a nightclub in Paris, France and he was photographed dancing with a woman in the club.  Some said they were a little too close, and then this picture surfaced…

OH NO HE DIDN’T!!!!!!  TRIFLIN’!!!!!!!!

Now Robin is clearly creepin’ around!  And from the looks of it he doesn’t give a damn!!!!! I mean you just don’t accidentally kiss someone, especially in a passionate way.  Of course Ms. Paula heard what happened and became extremely angry when she saw the picture.  This situation right here was said to be the straw that broke the camel’s back.  Close sources said that Robin and Paula began making public appearances separately.

The last time Robin and Paula were spotted together was at the 2014 Grammys, about a week after the kissing picture surfaced.  Shortly after, the couple publicly announced that they were separating.  Since the announcement Robin has been trying to win Paula back.  He even went as far as to sing “Let’s Stay Together” by R&B soul singer Al Green at a concert he was performing.

Okay here’s my opinion of the whole situation…Robin, you are stupid as hell!!  It is clear that the success of your #1 hit record has gone to your head!!!  This man had a beautiful successful woman in his corner for 20 plus years (remember they’ve been together since high school) and he screwed it up!  Will she ever forgive him?  Who knows, maybe one day, but for right now Ms. Paula…..ENJOY THE SINGLE LIFE!!!!

Baby Breakers By Tiffany L. Riley

What’s the new trend for 2014…?

BABYBREAKERS!!!!

                                                By Tiffany L. Riley

Okay….now that I have your undivided attention, you’re probably wondering   what a “Baby Breaker” is.  A baby breaker is a man who has an outside child on his girlfriend/wife while they’re on a so-called “break” (yes, married people take breaks too y’all).  Even though this has been going on for years, we have two celebrity men to thank for making this popular enough to catch social media’s eye.  Let’s give these men a round of applause!!!!

player and dressing like this.           Please don’t think too hard on that!

 

    A HOT MESS!!!!

 

 

            Dwyane Wade and his girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union, recently got engaged.  The two had a brief “break” in their relationship and reconciled a few months later.  Gabrielle posted a picture of her ring via Instagram and said she accepted Dwyane’s proposal.

                                                Blog Dwade Ring

Everyone was pretty much like ‘Yeah congrats Dwyane and Gabby’, but a few days later, the news came out that he fathered a baby six weeks prior and it wasn’t by his new fiancé’ Gabrielle.  So the BIG question that everyone was asking: Who is the mystery woman??

                               

    Aja Metoyer                                     Dwyane and Gabrielle

  THE JUMP OFF!!!!

      

    

 

            Aja Metoyer says she is not just Dwyane Wade’s baby mama and that she has been with him for 9 years.  Say what now?!  Wait a minute, let’s figure this equation out:  Gabrielle + Dwyane = 4 years together.

So Gabby’s been the side chick all along?  Well technically yes, but not to Ms Aja.  In case y’all forgot, let me refresh your memory:

 

Dwyane had a wife named Siohvaughn (pictured above); they were married in 2002 and were together for 8 years.  They got divorced in 2010, but Dwyane and Gabrielle started dating while he was still married to Siohvaughn.  So Aja saying that she’s been with Dwyane for 9 years just means she has been a side chick longer than Gabby.

 

Gabrielle Union recently had an interview with Glamour Magazine and stated that she felt it was her fault that Dwyane had a child outside of their relationship.  Gabrielle said, “The reason we took a break was because of me basically putting my career first before him.”  She also said that if she had to choose Dwyane would come first before her career.  Yep…SHE’S A DAMN FOOL!! 

 

Meanwhile, Aja Metoyer decided to write an open letter to Gabrielle Union.  In the letter, she describes how she has been in Dwyane and Gabrielle’s bedroom, and also tells Gabrielle that Dwyane just wanted a lot of attention.  What kind of man is this acting like a two year old??  Gabrielle is a very successful and beautiful woman.  It’s a shame that she is putting up all with this drama.  If the situation was reversed and she had a child with another man, Dwyane would not be with Gabrielle. In my opinion, he should not get a pass just because he’s a wealthy basketball player.

 

 NOW ON TO THE NEXT BABY BREAKER!

 

 

 Ludacris and his girlfriend Eudoxie (pictured below) have been together for 4 years.  Ludacris is a rapper/actor from Atlanta.  He owns his record label, Disturbing Tha Peace, and has been part of the Fast & Furious franchise; Eudoxie is a medical student. 

Blog Ludacris 2

The two took a break from their relationship early in 2013 but got back together a few months later.  Right after Dwyane Wade’s love child with Aja Metoyer was discovered, Ludacris had his own secret that was ready to be unveiled: He also had a child outside of his relationship with Eudoxie.  WHAT?!  NOT AGAIN!!  So who is this woman that Ludacris fathered a child with????

 

                 TAMIKA FULLER

Blog Jump Off

        THE JUMP OFF!!!!

 

This situation is very interesting.  Ludacris and Tamika have known each other since high school.  Through the years, Ludacris and Tamika dated each other on and off way before Eudoxie came into the picture.   Now Ludacris claims that he and Eudoxie were broken up when he had a “fling” with Tamika, but Tamika has a different story.  She claims that Ludacris was still with Eudoxie when they began messing around again.  Eudoxie says she is devastated by this situation, but she plans on sticking by her man and hopes they still get married one day.

 

 All I can say is it must be a shortage of men out here….                                                                 

 

                                          GOOD LUCK!!!!

TO HAVE, TO HOLD, TO COMPROMISE THE INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY BY Sylvia TruGem Warren Woods

TO HAVE, TO HOLD, TO COMPROMISE

THE INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY

BY Sylvia TruGem Warren Woods

Statistically, marriage has become less common among African Americans.  According to the U.S. Census, African American households are the least likely to contain a married couple, compared to other racial/ethnic groups.  Marriage appears to contribute greatly to the economic well-being of African-American families.   During the last decades, the rates of marriage in the black community have declined while the rates of divorce, separation, cohabitation, out-of-wedlock births, and children residing in female-headed households have increased (http://www.healthymarriageinfo.org.)  With that, more than ever, America needs the Black family.  So what happened?  There are many factors to consider obviously but I’ll speak on one issue; longevity.

 

Our parents, grandparents and great grandparents knew what it was like to stick it out.  If they were having problems, it was nobody’s business but their own.  If they no longer loved each other, they saved face by acting normal yet slept in separate beds.  If there were any indiscretions it was hushed and not flashed around town.  Were the methods they used effective?  Yes.  Some methods of course weren’t ideal, but were still effective and ultimately saved the family.  Today, sticking it out and making it work seems to be a past time in the Black community.  The words “I do” should possess permanent power.  Those words were not taken lightly then and shouldn’t be taken lightly now with what seems to be a combination of a self and societal annihilation of the Black family.  Traditional vows are widely held and highly respected by many, including myself, however I do believe the willingness to compromise should be a part of a tradition the Black family seems to have lost in the ruins over the years. 

 

A marriage is sure to fail without compromise.  Can compromise take place when two people aren’t happy and neither are willing to find out why?  Not likely.  Can compromise take place when one person feels they are always right and the other is always wrong?  Won’t happen.  Can compromise take place when one person’s flesh begins to cloud their judgment on what’s best for the family?  Not ever.  Can compromise take place between two people who haven’t a clue how to not only suffer but also accept the trials and tribulations that seem to go hand in hand in marriage?  Not likely. 

 

Love is equally important in a marriage but even it is not possible without the willingness to brave the waves, walk over coal, take a few punches and sustain a few setbacks all with the willingness to repeatedly take one for the team.

 

Compromise, stronger than love.
