shower

*According to a new study bathing too often is actually really bad for your skin.

I already know what you’re thinking: Uh uh. Don’t even go there.You know the saying, just because you think it doesn’t mean you have to say it out loud? Well in the case of the story herein, just because a dermatologist recommends it, you don’t have to do it! 

Word is, if you are among those who actually shower everyday, you’re going about it all wrong. You may be doing more harm to your body than good.

“We over-bathe in this country,” says Boston dermatologist Dr. Ranella Hirsch.

SIDE BAR: I’d really be interested in talking to some of her colleagues! Continue reading

60 year old accused of impregnating girl of 12

Are ‘People Like’ Phylicia Rashad the Reason Why Rape Victims Stay Silent?

9th Annual TV Land Awards - Arrivals

*Phylicia Rashad doesn’t believe Bill Cosby raped all those women. Ain’t nothing wrong with that. But some people may find her reason why leaves a lot to be desired. After all, she’s been going around talking about a “legacy” being destroyed.

Dozens of women are saying they were sexually violated by a man who happened to be the biggest TV star of the 80s and its his legacy that makes you believe they’re lying?

Rashad played Claire Huxtable to Cosby’s Cliff on The Cosby Show from 1984 -1992, and she recently talked to Showbiz 411’s Roger Friedman about the growing list of sexual assault allegations against the 77-year-old comedian, all of which he and his attorneys have denied.

“What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy,” Rashad asserts. “And I think it’s orchestrated. I don’t know why or who’s doing it, but it’s the legacy. And it’s a legacy that is so important to the culture.”

Seriously girl? Continue reading

Selfie at funeral
Crass yes. But hey, don’t hate the playa, hate the game.

*Now you know that you know someone like the dude in the picture above. Just think about it, don’t many of the people you know who take a lot of “selfies” and post them on social media seem kind of narcissistic? Don’t they always seem to find a way to turn every conversation around to them?

This, of course, doesn’t mean they are not sweet and kind.

So now there is new research that backs this opinion up. It says “selfies” reveal a lot about your personality, and not in the most flattering way.

An Ohio State University study recently revealed that men who posted more photos of themselves online actually scored higher in measures of narcissism and psychopathy. Continue reading

*Of all the issues one could have. SMH. This one ranks really, really, high on the WTF list.

Ferguson women get engaged 3

*Love is so powerful. It can develop anywhere apparently. And for two women in the midst of the Ferguson protests, following the Aug. 9 death of Michael Brown, it happened. And now they are getting married.

Alexis Templeton, 20, and Brittany Ferrell, 25, are two of the co-founders of Millennial Activists United. When they first met last August, it was amidst the loud chanting of protestors who sought police accountability after Brown was killed by former Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The two are also both plaintiffs in a federal court case against law enforcement agencies over their heavy-handed response to demonstrations.

They started dating not long after. On Tuesday afternoon, Templeton formally proposed to Ferrell at City Hall, and the couple then picked up a marriage license. Continue reading

family feud

*As the host of the once corny TV game show, “Family Feud,” you’ve got to give it to Steve Harvey. He has made the show worth watching. Harvey’s deadpan expressions alone–following an answer he didn’t expect from a contestant, makes it worth tuning in to.

So you can imagine the look on his face when an elderly contestant named Gene gave his honest opinion as he answered one of the questions on the prompt.

The question: “Name something that has to be licked.”

Now, since Family Feud is still, basically, a “family” show – you’d expect this old dude to say something like, a lollipop or a stamp.

But no. SMH. Continue reading
