Psst-->> Seen and Heard

The hotness that is Carlos Leon, father to Madonna's first born, speaks to People.com about raising daughter Lourdes.
"It's hard for me to be the tough guy with my daughter," "Maybe I should work on the discipline stuff, but I could leave her mother to do that!"

Psst-->> Yes They Are!

Someone asked me if it was true that Whitney Houston was "dating" Ray J. Ummm, yes, they are! TMZ.com has the latest vid of the two out and about.
And we thought Bobby was the nut;-)
And here is brand new music from Whitney produced by AKon!

Bye Sophia!

Estelle Getty, best known as Sophia on Golden Girls passed away Tuesday. As a fan of great classic television, I was aware that she refused to be at public events due to her health problems. She left us with tons of laughs though;-)

Baller On A Budget

I'm all into to the one-piece jumper but have found them hard to come by. Thanks to the Frugal Fashionista, I was sent running to Forever21 for their super-cute addition. Only problem, I want it in Silver...and not missing a button. The saga continues in Soho tomorrow;-)

Take 5-->> Relax

This was my horoscope today:
Just like you shouldn't get on a scale every day when you're on a diet, you can't constantly stare at the finish line if you want to win the race. You have to think about the here and now, not the there and later. Get confident about the fact that you are making progress -- even if you're not getting any outside reinforcement of that fact. You must keep on keeping on, and not make the mistake of putting your mind to anything but the task at hand.

I love this and needed to read it and I do indeed receive it;-)

First Look-->> Seen Batman Yet?

Visit Here and here. Maybe give'em a day or two, but yeah, my two guilty pleasure websites. I'm off to watch. Enjoy!

Psst-->> Papa Pharrell?

According to PageSix.com ((sigh)) Pharrell Williams knocked some chick up. AllUrbanGossip.com may have the current and back story. This is boring, can we ever report about love and a great friendship that has blossomed into marriage... It has always been my goal to save the kids till after marriage and thank God we are still on schedule cause having kids is real. I would think that you need a strong partnership too. Hollywood is really doin' too much. On the other hand, whoever she is, good for her Pharrell's hoootttt!

New York is a beast man. I love it and my plan was to do what I was doing in Cali just on a bigger and better scale. But dammit if the hot water and gas to the stove didn't get turned off like, within a week of me being here! Supposedly our appointment for it to be turned back on is today.
Nuts, and my poor little blog has been neglected cause I only have time to surf job sites. Otherwise it's cool. A lot of walking and sitting/standing close on trains and stretching my neck to look at tall buildings as I walk to interviews and there is a great of beautiful, well-put together men and women to look at as I stratigize my next move;-)

Why Jesse Apologized

The Clippers?

According to AP.com, Baron Davis is headed to the Clippers. Livin in the bay for 7 years, I really would have thought he would have stayed the duration... I don't know what to say.

Side note>> while searching for a photo to post I found Drunk Athlete.com. Whoa! I'mma bout to go back there and see who got caught up!
