Paula Patton was recently on The Chesea Lately Show and she addressed all the concerns we were thinking when it came to her blonde hair blue eyed baby boy. Initially when I saw her and Robing Thickes son I was sure the baby was accidentally switched at birth. When you have a biracial child especially of African-American decent the childs hair is curly, dark, and has a little kink to it. Nevertheless are the eyes going to be blue, but maybe light brown, hazel, or green. But not Paula’s baby.

“He looks just like my husband…He’s blonde, he has blue eyes. It’s crazy. Everybody’s like did you have anything to do with this, they think we’ve like adopted a Russian child. Everyday I’m like he’s gonna get blacker. The tan is coming in, the hair is curlier…I’m telling you. Everyday I’m like, I threaten to put baby oil on him and set him out in the sun…I know child services is calling me right now. You know blackness takes time.”

Braxton Family Values Recap

On tonight’s episode of the Braxton Family Values or “The Black Kardashians” as I like to call it, the Braxton clan heads to Los Angeles, CA to support Toni who was being honored by the LA Lupus Foundation. The episode starts with the Braxton sisters and Mama Braxton arriving at Tamar’s house; for those of you who don’t know anything about the show Tamar is the baby sister and in true baby fashion goes on to seek all the attention by giving these GROWN WOMEN these rules for her home which is cool I guess… but WHY?? Lol

Majority of the episodes we notice that she is the show between her signature phrases ending in dot com, net, org, or even edu. Well, tonight was no different however very emotional to say the least. Toni whom I thought had already revealed that she had Lupus was just
telling three of her sister’s for the first time. READ MORE

Recent reports online and on the radio claim that I raised “only” $250 during a fundraiser in support of my current bid for Mayor of Miami-Dade County. These reports are wrong, but not by a lot. My campaign is not rolling in dough. There are no lobbyists or special interest groups supporting me. My campaign runs on donations from everyday people of $5 dollars at a time. I never expected to raise $50,000 at a fundraiser. I raised close to two thousand dollars at the fundraiser in question, which can be checked with the Dade County Elections Bureau, but let’s say I “only” raised $250 on that day. That means fifty every day citizens believed enough in me to give me five dollars a piece, and I am okay with that. That makes me proud.

This is not the first time naysayers have shed negative light on the good I have done for the public. When I fought for freedom of speech, I made history. There were many who sat by the sidelines with their arms crossed, but guess what? I won that fight all the way up to the Supreme Court. READ MORE
