Please Fill Up My FRIES! {Video}

So last night after a long day of working on videos and handling, I decided to take a trip to get some good old “homestyle cooking” Mc Donalds. (LOL) Yeah I had a craving for a large size fry. I pull up to the drive thru to request my order of Supersize fries and when I get them the container is half full. I politely asked the drive thru attendant to fill my fry and she looks at me as if I was inconveniencing her. WTF! Why would I pay extra money for the big fry and all you give me is MEDIUM quality? I as I left to head home I began to think about what just took place and and grew madder and madder because this wasn’t the first time that happened. So I did what I knew best I set up my camera and decided to vent to the world about Mc Donalds and their cheap ways.

Check Out the video and please let me know if you are feeling me, keep in mind this video transpired after a few rounds of Ciroc(LOL)… but nonetheless I meant every word I said.


Diahann Carroll, the gorgeous 75-year-old veteran actress who appeared in the first films starring black actresses, and Kerry Washington, the beautiful 34-year-old film and Broadway actress, are featured in the May 2011 issue of O Magazine called “Timeless Beauty.” In the article Diahann wears a L.K. Bennett dress and Kerry wears a CH Carolina Herrera dress. A word of advice, Diahann says, “The legs are the last to go! I bring attention to mine with skirts and midheel pumps.”

Here are some article highlights:

Diahann Carroll…

On Kerry
“Kerry reminds me a lot of myself at her age. She has a trained eye for detail and what suits her figure. And she has an innate self-confidence, a coolness about how lovely she is.”

On Fashion

“My fashion life exists mainly through work, so I dress to be event appropriate. I see clothes as a performance.”

On Stilettos

“I will suffer while I’m being photographed, then change into another pair of shoes.” READ MORE

Michale Vick recently sat down with the Wall Street Journal and told the paper that (his peer and singer) Brown needs to get focused.

“Just put your faith in God,” he said. “Don’t worry about what people say about you. Words will never hurt you. The things that people can say out of their mouth can cut you deep. And sometimes a tongue can be sharper than a knife.”

Whoopi Goldberg Never Loved the Men She Married


Shocking new: Whoopi Goldberg has never loved the three men she married. She split with her first husband, Alvin Martin in 1979 after six years of marriage, then married David Claessen in ’86, but divorced only after two year. Then she exchanged those sacred vows with Lyle Trachtenberg in 1994 before that relationship came to a quick halt just after a year.

The talk show host and actress opened up about those intimate, or not so intimate times in her life and the persistent problems she’s had with love on “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

“I suppose you have to actually be in love with the person you marry. You have to be committed to them. I don’t have that commitment. I’m committed to my family,” Whoopi said. “No [I wasn't in love with my husbands]. It’s the truth. I wanted to feel normal and it seemed to me if I was married I’d have a much more normal life.”



The Rev. Jesse Jackson is once again in the news. However I don’t think anybody is prepared for this shocking story. Yo I am lost for words after reading GyantunPlugged and his story about Jesse.

Jackson’s former National Director of Community Affairs for The Rainbow Coalition, Tommy R. Bennett has filed a discrimination and wrongful termination complaint against the legendary civil rights, religious and political figure. According to published reports, Bennett claims he “was summoned to Rev. Jackson’s hotel room” at the Hilton Chicago O’Hare Airport Hotel. And, was told to apply cream to Jackson who “had a rash between his legs” an order Bennett states that he refused. He was also asked by Jackson for sex, after Jesse came to the door in his briefs and a v-neck t-shirt.” LOL I know, you got to read the story its crazy…

I then went on to find out more info about the story, and found: READ MORE
