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, You’re Good
Every man wants to marry his homie, Will explained. A lot of women will impress them, but it’s the one they can always laugh with and be themselves with that will ultimately impress them the most.

Essence Magazine Going Out Of Business?

admin Mar 18 10 2 Comments


The homies over at are reporting that the iconic brand may be folding its magazine. According to Gawker, even the popular go-to mag for black women can’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. Talk of the magazine’s financial problems came up when they used an old picture of Reggie Bush as their cover shot for their February issue. If a large magazine owned by Time Inc. can’t afford to do a photo shoot for their cover story then who can? Time will tell if Essence goes the way of Vibe and become an online-only pub.
