FOOTBALL & PHILANTHROPY w/ MARCUS TRUFANT, EARL THOMAS, MICHAEL JOHNSON & MATT LEINART

Who knew the Summer of 2014 would be filled with Football and Philanthropy? Well, apparently most NFL fans knew, because these pro-athletes have been giving back to their communities for years.

You would think during the off season, they would frolic to warm weather vacation destinations, b-lining away from news crews and media, however that is not the case and I have proof ūüôā

MARCUS TRUFANT | SEATTLE SEAHAWKS | TRUFANT FAMILY FOUNDATION

Trufant Family ¬†Foundation’s Mission:

To help make dreams come true for disadvantaged youth and their families and to  build a personal connection and involvement with individuals and community programs that provide service to people who are most in need.

The cornerback was a first-round pick in 2003 out of Washington State and immediately moved into the starting lineup, playing a key role on the 2005 team that advanced to the franchise’s first Super Bowl.

Earl Thomas, III picks out the next bicycle to be given away to a child during his foundation’s bike giveaway over the Summer. Sixty bicycles were given to children by the Earl Thomas III Guardian Angel Foundation at Sixth Street Community Church in Orange, TX.

Growing up, Earl Thomas was lucky enough to have a strong, supportive family around him, but his life was not without hardship. His beginnings were humble and fraught with adversity, culminating with the loss of the family home in Orange, Texas, during Hurricane Rita in 2005.  Earl knows what it is to go without, which is why it remains so crucially important to him to give back to others.

We all know what that smile means :) #LookAtMeNow This is what giving back is all about!!!

In addition to various NFL-oriented community service activities like Play 60, Earl carries out a series of yearly efforts to help those who are less fortunate get back on their feet. His work annually includes a Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway, Winter Coat Drive, and a Free Summer Football Camp for children in the town where he grew up.

Fun Fest attendees enjoyed interactive¬†games, music, food, and entertainment including a wing eating contest sponsored by Kentucky Fried Chicken,¬†Celebrity and NFL Athlete Autographs and Photos as well as Special Meet and Greets with MTV star Coleysia Chestnut, 3D The Boss, Dr. Rondrick Williamson and mini make overs by We TV “LA Hair” star China Upshaw.
On the following day, football campers were taught basic football fundamentals while the cheer and dance campers learned basic cheer, dance and twirl routines and at half time all guests were treated to a live performance by pop trio  3D the Boss!

 On Tuesday, June 15, 2014, Johnson raised funds for MJ93 at the second annual Beauty and the Beast Swag Lounge pre-ESPY day party in L.A. presented by Trea Day Management and Publicity in conjunction with BMB Entertainment. The event was sponsored by Myx Fusions, LPL financial, Euphoric Treasures, Hula Girl, God Can and Marani Vodka. A-list guests, athletes and celebrities contributed to the fundraising by donating hundreds of dollars toward the cause. Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Michael Johnson has always had a heart for children and aspired to make a difference in children’s lives. When he was a youngster, Johnson often times gave to children less fortunate than he. A burning passion for helping those in need coupled with the desire to help children succeed were the driving forces that lead Johnson to create MJ93 as an NFL rookie, an organization that supports and encourages the education, mentorship, health and fitness of children.

The event was a major success and will allow MJ93 to continue to host their annual football and cheer camp, allow students to attend the MJ93 computer certificate program and to continue the Let’s Move Initiative launched by first lady Michelle Obama in an attempt to combat childhood obesity.

ABOUT TIME!!! LUPITA NYONG’O is People’s World’s MOST Beautiful

 

LUPITA NYONG'O IS PEOPLE'S WORLD'S MOST BEAUTIFUL!!!
LUPITA NYONG’O IS PEOPLE’S WORLD’S MOST BEAUTIFUL!!!

SHE BAD in the most fabulous way!!! Waking up to the best news ever!!! I am so proud of all of Lupita’s accomplishments, she is truly a blessing for Black Little Girls and Black Women EVERYWHERE!!!¬†

I know first hand, how hard it is growing up in a world, where White is right and Light Skin is the next best thing. In my life, I’ve dealt w/ not fitting in because of my skin color, being called nigger and more. But, I swear moments like this, make it all worth it.

My mother, Charko is the Founder of Charko’s Vocational Education School of Fashion & Fitness Agency…Seattle’s FIRST Black Modeling School. I heard the painful stories of her being told, she could never become a model, because she was “Too Black”, “Lips Too Full” and “Hips Too Big”, yet she was determined to make it happen. I have always admired her tenacity and strength. She stayed rockin that succulent Dark Chocolate Skin w/ so much confidence, I vowed to be just like her.

It’s crazy, you don’t set out to be a role model, it just happens ūüôā

PEOPLE you got it right this time!!!

Check out Lupita’s interview w/ People Magazine Here:

She may have¬†won an Oscar¬†for her role as the slave Patsey in Steve McQueen’s¬†12 Years a Slave¬†and recently landed a contract with¬†Lanc√īme Paris, but Lupita Nyong’o

“never dreamed” she would be touted as “Most Beautiful” for all the world to see.¬†

Best Supporting Actress (2014)

“It was exciting and just a major, major compliment,” the 31-year-old says of gracing this year’s cover. And especially, “I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen.”¬†

Born in Mexico and raised in Kenya, Nyong’o first equated beauty with what she saw on television: “Light skin and long, flowing, straight hair,” she says. “Subconsciously you start to appreciate those things more than what you possess.” Her mother, Dorothy, who is the managing director and head of PR for the¬†Africa Cancer Foundation, “always said I was beautiful,” Nyong’o adds. “And I finally believed her at some point.”¬†

As a teen, Nyong’o dyed her hair every color ‚Äď except blonde ‚Äď and even went as far as shaving her head bald. “It was very strange and very cold!” she says, laughing.

“It was scary but I like to dare myself.”¬†

Now she says the best compliments are “when I have been called beautiful with not one drop of makeup on,” she adds. “And also before I comb my hair or put on a pretty dress. Happiness is the most important thing.”¬†

JUST FAB!!!
JUST FAB!!!

Past covers have included, Halle Berry (1st Black Woman to become People’s Most¬†Beautiful¬†Woman), Beyonce¬†and Denzel Washington.

Sextape or Straight Porn? LHHATL’s Mimi & Nikko’s Vivid Debut!

If you know of me, you know I’m sooooooo #ProNaked !!!

But this right here, this right here, in my best Katt Williams’ voice, is straight PORN!!! Yea, I said it! Vivid is doing them a favor, not disclosing they made a previous PORNO DEAL, by hiding it behind Social Media infused #SexTape viral frenzy!

Mic check 1 x 2 x 1 x 2...
Mic check 1 x 2 x 1 x 2…

I’m all for it girl! Get over Stevie, move on, find someone new, not necessarily a look alike, but find someone who’s diggin all over you. But, was that Nikko? Is that Nikko? I know first hand, once you’ve been sex deprived, not because you can’t get it, but because you’re still holding true to a relationship, that has far from left you, you stumble across some “Withholdings” ūüôā and, every stroke is like a live symphony ūüėČ

But, not only does this dick have you in concert halls globally, but on front street too.

How can you come back from this? Fire your publicist who tells you to call it a #SEXTAPE !!! Let the public know, VH1 ain’t paying nearly enough, to have 24 hour access to your personal lives. Shiiiiiiiiit, bills still need to be met…But at what cost?

Stevie AND Nikko can get away w/ this, because they are MEN.

This is nothing but, an old school ‘Notches Tournament’ ¬†to them and you fell for it. ¬†What? For more screen time? Porn side deals to ensure financial security??? I just want to say, fuck the viewer. Girl, you have nothing to prove to us. We live in a 24/7, at the palm of your hand, front row ticket, to EVERYTHING these days. Your daughter could literally roll over on your phone and pull this shit up!!! Not good!

((( JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN DO IT…DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD!!! )))

LHHATL Porn Promo Buzz

Why shit on your brand like this? I know in heartbreak we make silly decisions, but ¬†you’re a BOSS, let you tell it, so this had to be calculated. Timed to 7 days from your Season Premiere original date,…??? I’m baffled. Nothing about this video screams, Fiance, Love, Step Dad, ¬†Romance, Future….

Just hit it and quit it. You put another one on Girl…

To your credit and your decline.  ((( #Typecast )))

Fuckin raw in ATL, I’m not from there, but even I know that’s a NO NO, shit, anywhere in the world, on some real shit, no condom is a ¬†#NONO. ¬†Homosexuality and Heterosexuality make major mistakes in unprotected sex, however when you mix both of them, like those gay rumors about Nikko, you double your chances on that death bed, give back confession video, to young women, infomercial. ¬†True Story.

Black Women will surely take a hit for this one. Scheduled Visitation and Child Support payments will tank to an all time low, because men will argue the mother’s of their children are debuting in sextapes across america lol! You know I had to throw some late night comedy innnnnnn hahaha!

But [Black Women], dayum, we keep shooting ourselves in the foot. Not realizing the bullet goes straight through to our daughters.

Imagine that!

Love and Hip Hop Atlanta airs, Monday, May 5, 2014 on VH1. See the Super Trailer Here >>>

Are You TOO FAT for FAME??? Kelly Price Casts NEW Reality TV Series!

Lil Mo, Kelly Price, Chant√© Moore, Claudette Ortiz, Michel’le and Dawn Robinson

I can’t lie…I have no real BIG GIRL or FAT struggle, simply because I have done nothing to try to lose weight over the years. Now, with that said, it doesn’t mean I haven’t been ridiculed by others about my size…

Yes, I’ve been told, “I’m too fat for fame!“, what hurt the most was, it came from family and friends majority of the time. Yes, I have a background in Communications and Journalism, but that wasn’t all that I wanted to do. I am a POET first and foremost, but I’m also a Singer and a great Songwriter.

Now, that I’m getting older and putting efforts into living a better life and becoming a better me, I’ve asked myself hard questions, like, “Why didn’t I take my singing career to the next level?”, “What kept me from going to those auditions?”

And, it’s clear, something in me must’ve believe them, and eventually I found it easier promoting others, than myself. ¬†It’s that simple.

Well, I had the chance of meeting Kelly Price and her husband, when Syleena Johnson debuted at RnB Live Hollywood in November of 2012. I’m talking the whole camp is cool, chic, opinionated and outright sexy!!!

Trying to stay in my lane, didn’t want my groupie to jump out ¬†:), but I was in awe with the star power I had around me. It’s incredible w/ the new TV ONE R&B Divas L.A. hit, Kelly’s still finding time to give back w/ TOO FAT FOR FAMEWatch here to hear her story…

This Episode Airing 5/14 on TBS...Check Your Local Listings!
This Episode Airing 5/14 on TBS…Check Your Local Listings!

Luenell is a force of nature. This talented comedienne, actress and singer, was born in Tollette, Arkansas, a town whose population barely registers with the U.S. census. At the tender age of 10, she caught the acting bug after seeing the plays “South Pacific” and “Ain’t S’posed to Die a Natural Death”. She enrolled in theatre¬†classes¬†at the grade school level and continued to study through college and cut her teeth at the Oakland Ensemble Theatre. These days, Luenell’s star continues to rise due to her appearances in television, film and music videos. Best known for her breakthrough role as the “hooker with the heart of gold” in the blockbuster comedy of 2006,¬†Borat.

¬†Luenell is recognized by both mainstream AND urban sectors of the population. Her two-year tour and DVD appearances in “Katt Williams American Hustle” have created an almost cult-like following. + Blockbuster features in Taken 2,¬†Hotel Transylvania and That’s My Boy, tonight’s show is just a peek into what’s to come of this triple threat!

LUENELL

MORE ABOUT THE SHOW

TBS has brought it this spring! Birthing the hidden-camera comedy with the brand new series¬†Who Gets the Last Laugh?¬†Hosted by Donald Faison (Scrubs), the series will pit some of the industry’s most well-known comedians and comedy actors against one another to see who can pull the most outrageous practical jokes.¬†Who Gets the Last Laugh?-is the brainchild of¬†Punk’d¬†co-creators Jason Goldberg and Ashton Kutcher.¬†

Each week on Who Gets the Last Laugh?, three guest comedians must dream up the funniest and most outrageous pranks possible, then successfully unleash their ideas on an unsuspecting public. A live audience then determines which comedy star really got the last laugh, with the winner earning $10,000 to be given to the charity of their choice. 

Among the comedians who have lined up to¬†participate¬†are Luenell (Taken 2),¬†Andy Dick (NewsRadio), Tom¬†Green¬†(The Tom Green Show), D.L. Hughley (The Hughleys), Chris Kattan (The Middle,¬†Saturday Night Live), Bam Margera (Jackass), Bill Bellamy (Any Given Sunday), Charlie Murphy (Chappelle’s Show), Cheri Oteri (Saturday Night Live), Alan Thicke (Growing Pains), Nicole Sullivan (MADtv), Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory) and Finesse Mitchell (Saturday Night Live).¬†

LOSE to WIN: A Battle I Know Too Well! Fantasia Performs Live on American Idol!

Fantasia Performs New Hit Single "Lose to Win" on American Idol.
Fantasia Performs New Hit Single “Lose to Win” on American Idol.

Watching Fantasia stand in the very spot she started from, riddled with emotion, I started crying uncontrollable tears. See I know first hand what it’s like to lose, with no winning in sight. For me, this performance was a holy ghost takeover. With bitter sweet chills, bottom lip trembles, magnified over the airways healing so many young girls who may have never experience this kind of heartbreak, but now have hope that they can survive one. Plus, healing the mature woman as well, who knows exactly the name of the man who these lyrics apply to. Who she lost herself to. Who she’s fighting to take her power back from, now in this very moment.

Young Aretha I call her (Fantasia), still so very vulnerable, humble and approachable. ¬†I only wish I could’ve heard from you last night. I can see the blessed energy running through you, and I understand why you couldn’t say anything after that spiritual fight. I’m sure you’ve performed that song countless times. On TV Shows globally, but I think maybe because you were full circle, standing on the stage that launch your¬†dynamic¬†career, GOD took over and you left everything on the stage.

You’ve had an amazing walk in life. Now you have a wonderful and joyful journey ahead of you. Unbeknownst, you’re taking me with you. You truly undressed this pretty picture I created, and reminded me I still have some healing to do. I sincerely thank you for that. I will continue to pray for your greatness, your peace, to accompany you even whenever you feel the pressures of mass media and unforgivable press. The industry is brutal, but what you have surpasses all things superficial. I see the GOD in you. Let your light shine girlfriend!!!

Many Blessings!
