Recently Will Smith sat down with Essence Magazine and dished out the real deal when it came to marriage and what it takes to with stand a solid marriage. As we all know, Will and Jada Smith have been happily married for 14 years and have become america’s template for what a happy and successful marriage and family looks like, so rightfully going to either Will or Jada for advice is suiting.
If You Marry Your Best Friend, Youâ€™re Good
Every man wants to marry his homie, Will explained. A lot of women will impress them, but itâ€™s the one they can always laugh with and be themselves with that will ultimately impress them the most.

The homies over at Bossip.com are reporting that the iconic brand may be folding its magazine. According to Gawker, even the popular go-to mag for black women canâ€™t withstand the tides of the recession. Just a couple of days after announcing the retirement of beauty editor Mikki Taylor, Gawker reports that there has been a lot of pink slips and turnovers since November.
