downloadShonda Rhimes is spilling the beans and letting fans know that her popular t.v. show “Scandal” won’t behaving much of a future within the next few years!

Although Shonda has already revealed last November that she knows when and how “Scandal” will end she has recently came forth to relay that the political thriller won’t last as many as eight seasons… Yikes! How will Sandal fanatics cope?

The Hollywood Reporter got the scoop as to why Shonda says “Scandal” won’t be lasting long, this statement is also after she officially confirmed Harrison (Columbus Short) being killed off.

Shonda: “His absence will be explained definitively. What you think happened to his character happened to his character,” 

Shonda also added in a reference relating to the “Gladiators” reactions to Harrison’s death:

“It will be very devastating for Abby in a surprising way. You’ll see how she’s coping with it in a very different way than you would expect, but the show will be killed off altogether within the next four years. Most likely, sooner than that.”

“I think there’s only so much ‘Scandal’ you can tell satisfactorily, the Fitz-Liv thing can only be told so long and in such a way. It’s not a 10-season or eight season show. I’ve already decided how long that is and what that’s going to be.”

Shonda also made this statement about the show:

“it would be interesting. (how the show ends) But I’ve given myself a parameter of what that is, and whether or not that means we end up deciding to stretch or shrink his presidency based on that remains to be seen.”

Will you be sad to see the show end? We want to hear from you Gladiators!

Staggering, you fumble with your keys. You drop them twice before managing to successfully put them in the lock and open the door to your apartment…

Tonight was a blast; you partied with your girlfriends until the wee hours of the morning, and possibly may have drunk a little too much. Digging through your purse, you stumble and plop down on your couch.You pull out your phone and dial 10 familiar numbers. 30 minutes later, there is a knock at the door. You have sobered up slightly, but still are just above tipsy. You open the door and there he stands; Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome. Also Mr. So Very Much Not Your Boyfriend Of  Three Years. You let him inside your most sacred place as you have done so many times before regardless of relationship status, and commence to knowing each other… Intimately.

After the encounter is done, he showers and proceeds to leave; normal routine, except this time you ask him to stay. When he refuses to do so, you ask him: Why? Is there someone else? What are we doing here? How long are we going to continue do this? You’ll never find anyone as good as me!  You say this emotionally upset. This outburst has now changed the “FWB” atmosphere, the outward showing of emotion with this particular person is foreign to you. You apologize and ask him to leave.


Four ways to tell your Side Guy/Girl Situation has turned sour.

1. You find yourself thinking about them while you’re sober. Oh it’s easy to justify your attraction to your side guy when you’re drunk; just as easy as it is to blame any naughty activities on the alcohol? But calling on your pitch hitter during the daytime or sober as a nun in church may mean you have grown a teensy bit of feelings.

2. You buy them a gift for birthdays, Christmas, etc. Your side guy is just that… the side guy. He is only there for one reason only. The gifts are meant for the boyfriend. However if you pass a watch cart in the mall and say, “oooh, I bet Side Guy would love this,” and actually buy it for him; it’s probably time to check your feelings.

3. You inquire about their time not spent with you. The only time that matters between you and the side guy is now and in the moment. He does not exist until you need him. To you he has neither family nor friends, and if he does, you don’t care to found out. If you find yourself asking “Who was that?” ashe checks a text message, send him on his way.

4. You ask them do they see a future with you. There is no and never will be a future with the side guy. He is not the one you will marry…EVER. He may be the marrying type, but he will never marry you. He’sbeen with you through most of your multiple failed relationships. Why would he want to subject himself to that drama? When you feel the need to ask the future question, run and never look back. It’s time to leave him alone and find the love that is meant you and you only.

Now you’re wondering how can i save myself from getting to this place? Unfortunately there is no emotion proof way to keep yourself from falling into this scenario the best way to save yourself is to end it before it gets too heavy or… JUST DON’T DO IT!

Despite the many allegations that have come forth against the meat supplier (OSI) used by the popular food chain, which is that it processes dirty and expired meat, McDonald’s has opted to stick by the suppliers side and continue doing business with them!!!

According to CNN- Chinese authorities this week suspended operations at a Shanghai Husi food plant, a subsidiary of Illinois-based OSI Group. The government intervened after a Chinese broadcasted aired footage of workers using their bare hands at a Husi factory to process expired meat, and even food that had fallen on the floor! This is disgusting to say the least!

While many of its fast food rivals have rushed to cut ties with OSI, McDonald’s said Thursday that it will continue to do business with the supplier. The American fast food chain will shift its sourcing to a Husi plant in Hebei, before fully transitioning to a new facility in Henan.

McDonald’s (MCD) shares have fallen 3.7% this week.

Local regulators have inspected OSI’s other factories in China, and found no issues, OSI chief executive and owner Sheldon Lavin said in a statement. OSI has been a McDonald’s supplier in China since 1992, and the company has extensive operations in the country.

Lavin has apologized for the company’s actions, saying they are “completely unacceptable.”

“I will not try and defend it or explain it,” he said in a statement. “It was terribly wrong, and I am appalled that it ever happened in the company that I own.”

Competitor Yum Brands (YUM), which operates KFC and Pizza Hut, has said it will terminate all meat sourcing from Husi. Yum’s shares have tanked 3.5% this week.

Other foreign food chains such as Starbucks (SBUX), Burger King (BKW), Papa John’s(PZZA) have also pulled Husi-sourced products.

McDonald’s- Are you still lovin’ it? Let’s hear your thoughts!



So here’s the deal… I’m in love with my husband’s boss. My husband has no idea that the only reason he currently has the job he has and is bringing in more money is because of my relationship with his boss… I can’t help that I am addicted to power and wealth and I need a man who can take care of me and supply all my needs and he just doesn’t do it for me.

At first my husband was successful and doing extremely well as a professional athlete he wasn’t a highest roller but we lived very well, then he got injured, we had to downsize everything and took a desk job making considerably less than what I am accustomed to.  Now on top of this hardship he recently went to the doctor and was diagnosed with…

The Federal Aviation Administration has told all U.S. airlines that flights to Israel’s Tel Aviv airport are prohibited for 24 hours after a rocket from Gaza landed in the area.


Delta Air Lines and United Airlines said earlier Tuesday they are suspending service between the U.S. and Israel indefinitely. US Airways scrapped its Tel Aviv service Tuesday and said it is monitoring the situation in regards to future flights.

The FAA said in a statement that the ban on flights is for 24 hours beginning at 12:15 p.m. ET on Tuesday, and that a rocket landed about one mile from Ben Gurion International Airport Tuesday morning, YIKES!

The airport is located 50 miles north of Gaza, within range of rockets being fired by the militant group Hamas.

Delta Air Lines’ one daily flight was already in the air. Delta said a Boeing 747 from New York was flying over the Mediterranean headed for Tel Aviv when it turned around and flew to Paris instead. Flight 468 had 273 passengers and 17 crew on board.

The notice only applies to U.S. airlines since the FAA has no authority over carriers from other nations.

The FAA said it will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation, and that updated instructions will be provided to U.S. airlines “as soon as conditions permit, but no later than 24 hours” from the time the directive went into force.

Airlines and passengers are growing more fearful about safety since last week ever since the Malaysia Airlines jet was shot down over Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board. Airlines have rerouted planes to avoid the area over eastern Ukraine where pro-Soviet separatists are battling the Ukrainian army.

Despite the danger that could put many Americans in harms way Israel’s Transportation Ministry believes that the decision to suspends flights called on the companies to reverse their decision and said it was trying to explain that the airport was “safe for landings and departures.”

“There is no reason for the American companies to stop their flight and give a prize to terror,” Israeli Transportation Minister Israel Katz told The Jerusalem Post.

The order could take a toll on Israel’s economy, according to the Jerusalem Post.

“As soon as the FAA gives such an order to US carriers, in most cases it’s a domino effect, and most European carriers will be forced to suspend their flights,” an industry source told the newspaper. “This is a huge coup for Hamas.”

Meanwhile, Israeli airstrikes continued to pummel a wide range of locations in Gaza and diplomatic efforts intensified to end the fighting that has killed at least 609 Palestinians and 29 Israelis — 27 soldiers and two civilians. The U.N. office of humanitarian affairs estimates that at least 75 percent of the Palestinian deaths were civilians, including dozens of children.

The fate of another Israeli soldier who disappeared following a deadly battle in the Gaza Strip remained unknown, a defense official said Tuesday.




1. POSSIBILITY OVER PROBABILITY. You married your spouse for who they might be in the long run but not for who they currently are, Truth is the majority of us do not live to reach all of our dreams, goals and aspirations. Although there is nothing wrong with standing beside your spouse and believing in them you have to be satisfied with how they are  now just in case it never happens. If you are not satisfied with how your spouse is now then there is a high possibility you won’t be later.

2. DIARRHEA MOUTH. You run and tell your friends and family about every time your spouse does something you dislike or when they make a mistake. Your spouse is GUARANTEED to make a huge mistake as will you! No relationship will be perfect but when you married your spouse you should have went into the relationship accepting the good with the bad… Telling your close loved ones when your spouse makes a mistake is allowing them access into your personal affairs giving them too much of an opinion on your marriage without knowing all the intricate details , this cause unnecessary conflict from outside influences  and it can also become uncomfortable during family gatherings. So keep your mouth shut!

3. TOO CLINGY. You don’t understand why your spouse wants to hang out all the time as if they’re not married but the truth is they don’t understand why YOU don’t hang out more. You understand the importance of family time, however, everyone is entitled to spend a good amount of time with their friends too (as long as it doesn’t take priority over your family time). Just because you forgot about your friends doesn’t mean your spouse has, take time to go out and get away and the more comfortable you’ll be when your spouse does, Within reason of course!

4. FINAL WORD WOES. The word “sorry” is not in your dictionary, you would rather argue until you’re blue rather than accept the fact that sometimes even your spouse won’t see things your way! Not only that, you are not willing to apologize about whatever you did that may have hurt their feelings even if it wasn’t intentional… No one wrote the book on apologies, sometimes it’s good to simply let your partner know that you care and that you are willing to work on your actions, how you respond and be more delicate with thier feelings regardless if you feel as though you were wrong or not. It shouldn’t be a fight over right or wrong but rather an understanding of what triggers your partner and  how you can work around not offending them in any way, this will allow your spouse to be more receptive to your concerns without defense walls being built.

5. NO MORE DATE NIGHTS. You thought that dating ends after marriage begins…. NOT the case! The only time you go somewhere is when others are involved, HUGE MISTAKE! You should take the time to date your spouse at least once or twice a month, this will keep the relationship exciting and new for the duration of your marriage and keep things spicy! Your spouse want’s to know that “they still got it” and that you know they are a good catch because you aren’t afraid to show them off!

6. PITY PARTY’S. You thought marriage was supposed to be centered around how you feel, in return you married your spouse based off how they make you feel rather than how well you fulfill each other. So you fall in love quickly because they said all the things you wanted to hear… Then suddenly your spouse says or does something you dislike and interrupts your perfect picture! Awwwwww…. Now you’re ready to call it quits! WAKE UP AND SMELL THE DIVORCE PAPERS!!!! This just isn’t realistic of how a long-lasting marriage works. It is not your spouse’s responsibility to  make you happy or fill your void, guess what… Only YOU are responsible for your own happiness! Your spouse should be icing on the cake but sometimes they might make it worse, If your aren’t built to go through the lows of marriage most likely you won’t survive to reach the highs!




Want to take a nice long walk around the park after dark and spark a little Mary Jane a.ka. Marijuana? No problem if you don’t mind paying a $25 fine!


In efforts to enforce decriminalization possession of marijuana ( which affects most blacks who are currently over crowding the prisons over marijuana sentences) the District of Columbia is taking action by issuing a small fine for having up to an ounce of marijuana of $25 oppose to $1000 fine and 6 months jail time.
Officers have the option of merely giving a warning and residents won’t be required to show an ID to police writing a citation.

Police will continue to confiscate the drug and can arrest people who refuse to provide their actual name and address, but police cannot use the odor of marijuana as an excuse to search for it.

Marijuana remains illegal under federal law and the U.S. Park Police and other federal agencies intend to file federal charges against people they catch with small amounts of marijuana. Those penalties include a possible $1,000 fine and one year in jail for first offenses.

“I think we’re going to see a real positive change in the District of Columbia,” Councilman David Grosso, a political independent, tells U.S. News. “We know that every single touch with the criminal justice system, unfortunately, has a negative impact on our residents’ lives.”

Do you think this change will negatively or positively impact the community within D.C.? #voiceit






 If you love reality t.v. then you don’t want to miss the upcoming Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Reunion, major brawls went down to the point of cops needing to intervene because of the injuries– and the tape was still rolling!!

According to TMZ:

A huge brawl erupted during the taping of the “Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta” reunion show in NYC Tuesday night … leaving several cast members — and their weaves — injured.

Multiple sources on the set tell us the fight involved Benzino, his fiancee Althea, Stevie J, Joseline, Debra, Tammy, and Mimi — and the whole mess started when Benzino cracked a joke about Stevie J and Joseline doing drugs.

We’re told Stevie jumped up to get in Benzino’s grill, but security guards stopped him. That’s when –according to witnesses — Stevie’s girl Joseline sneak attacked Althea.

After that, all hell broke loose — weaves were torn out in the chaos — and every time security broke up one fight … a different one would spark up between other cast members.

We’re told most of the fighting was between the women — although at least one male security guard took a shot to the face … from one of the chicks.

From what we can tell the only smart decision all night was someone calling 911. Cops and paramedics responded — at least three people got treatment.

We know what you’re wondering, and the answer is — YES … we’re told VH1 cameras were rolling during most of the violence.

The seeds of ratchetness appear to have been sown Monday night … when a nude pic of Benzino and Althea was posted on Stevie J’s Twitter page.






Do you believe in emotional infidelity? Surprisingly a lot of people believe that if it doesn’t involve touching then it’s nothing wrong with a little flirting here or there… But where do you draw the line?

Are you up all night flirting or speaking on sexual matters with strangers “just for fun”?  Is there really no harm in sex talk?

Well it depends. Some people don’t relate sex with emotions however it doesn’t exonerate you from cheating. Plenty of men and women have affairs without their emotions being involved, does this make the transgression less serious?

What if it’s just a group discussion speaking on the subject? Is this cheating?

After being in several social media groups I can honestly say that everyone has their own definition of what defines cheating but also that everyone has a limit to what they will or will not say and what activities they will or will not participate in such as certain dare games, pictures and flirt talk.

Based off of this I would say that cheating is in the understanding of your personal relationship and only your significant other can judge… With that being said if you can’t do it in front of your spouse don’t click the mouse!

Innocent fun can turn into something more serious in an instant!  You can go from speaking of a fantasy you have to flirting then at some point you decide to go that extra step and feed your curiosity and this is where the ground becomes shaky!

Although social media is the common medium for everyday conversations, fun games and interaction it also serves as the most common means for people to have affairs.

In a poll conducted by, over 63 per cent of women felt that online emotional affairs constituted infidelity and 70 per cent of them believe that emotional affairs could lead to physical affairs… and a lot of them do.

THOUGHTS: Ultimately many people will have their opinions on what constitutes cheating but what it comes down to is not going beyond the limits within the understanding of your relationship!!!

Do you believe in Cyber cheating?  Where do you draw the line? #VOICEIT


Beyoncé and Jay Z kicked off their highly anticipated On The Run tour last night in Miami and there were quite a few surprises!

The notoriously private couple used the tour as an opportunity to share never-before-seen footage from their 2008 wedding, a few intimate moments from the beginning of their relationship, and video taken of Beyoncé in the delivery room after she gave birth to baby Blue.


As you can imagine, social media lit up with photos and videos from the show. They performed over 40 songs during the 2.5 hour show with a set inspired by their RUN trailer.  During the show, Beyoncé rocked several different costumes including a multicolored Atelier Versace bodysuit, a thong cut-out leotard, and a Vrettos Vrettakos red crystal catsuit.


Will you be attending the show?
