While many women are still trying to figure out how to act like a lady — or a man — some women just want to know the truth about the men in their lives.Â Dr. Ian Smith recently put out a book which attempts to tackle that very subject.

Attendees got a chance to watch a documentary created by Hill Harper about relationships. They also asked the panel â€“ which included Dr. Ian Smith, Boris Kodjoe, Hill Harper, and Evan Shy — many of their burning relationship questions.

Other times I constantly check in my rearview mirror to be sure that Iâ€™m not being followed. Itâ€™s a safety precaution that my security team taught me. As I got to an intersection, I made a left turn from the right lane and was pulled over by two police officers. I pulled the car over and put it in park. Then, I let the window down and sat in the car waiting for the officer. The officer came up to the driverâ€™s door and said that I made an illegal turn. I said, â€œI signaled to get into the turning lane, then made the turn because I have to be sure Iâ€™m not being followed.â€Read more after the heartbeat He said, â€œwhy do you think someone would be following you?â€ Read More »
