Mary has not yet to upset me....but between you and me....I love the that she is happy now...but I loved her more when she made music like this.....(look below)

FYI: Share My World is my favorite album by Mary

Welcome back C.B.


I just love the fact that Chris Breeze aka Mechanical Dummy is making music again! A lot of people personal opinions were in the way of reality...."His career is over." Chris Brown is on tour and will be performing in Washington, DC on Decemeber 4, 2009.


I know many of you have watched the Rhianna interview on ABC the other night and I know you want to hear my opinion. I only have one thing to say, If you feel sorry for Rhianna after watching the interview, it {interview} did exactly what it was suppose to do.


WELCOME BACK CHRIS.......

Kai Milla

Guess who I met???.....KAI MILLA!!!
I know this post has nothing to do with music (well its Stevie Wonders wife so I guess it kinda is) but ANYWAY I just have to tell you about this BEAUTIFUL woman!!!
Since I have graduated college I have been trying to find a church home and for the past 3 weeks I been attending this WONDERFUL church, The First Baptist Church of Glenarden. The church is awesome....pretty HUGE...but awesome! So last week I registered for the Woman's Conference 2009...Yayyy!!!

The conference was just AMAZING today! My favorite moments were the domestic abuse women overcoming there battles, Y'Anna Crawley (Sunday's Best winner on BET), and Kai Milla (designer and wife of the legendary Stevie Wonder). The conference was great as a whole....however I knew that after Kai Milla spoke that my mission for this conference was to speak to her.

During break beween sessions I jetted right to her vendor that she had set up. She had ropes that blocked her, bodyguard beside the table and who do I see? This FABULOUS chick name Tia I met two weeks ago at my girls Fight Party (Mayweather)...we hugged...had a quick chat, then I got back to my mission....Kai Milla was Tia's auntie! SMALL WORLD!!

To make a long 20 minute conversation short...write down all the things that you want to make happen and accomplish then once you do it....scratch it off your list. Be visual...and have faith!

Her website is: http://www.kaimilla.com/
Here is a dress worn from her line by the first lady Mrs. Michelle Obama!

The Park at Fourteenth Street




The Park at Fourthteenth in Washington, DC is a great place to hang out. This club/lounge venue is full of young professionals and a lot of room for either networking, having a drink, or just plain fun, this is the spot to be.

On this particular occassion I was going to a collegue/cousin Bachelor/bachelorette party and they had a VIP spot sectioned off for us! Great service....terrific.... drinks...on point!

And who do me and Joel run into? Yep Julissa....former/temporary 106 & Park co-host (Big Tigger was the other) at Park!



I had a great time! But I will be a Park again! ......Just be careful where you PARK downtown! They are QUICK to give tickets.... :)

Do yall remember Maia Campbell?

In the House....she played as Tiffany...


A video surfaced yesterday of Maia Campbell apparently under the influence of crack cocaine. I said apparently because this is the rumor that has been circulating. I debated whether or not if I should post the video because it shows Maia in such a negative light. However, I decided to post it because maybe people will begin to pray for her. In the video you will hear guys laughing at her which is really sad that they are making a mockery of her downfall instead of helping her.

My advice to all young people aspiring to get into entertainment is: Don't get caught up in the hype. It is OKAY to say NO (to drugs)!!! Fitting in is not cool....STANDING OUT is what makes people notice you are doing GREAT things.

Here is the video, PLEASE PRAY for Maia guys...I hate to see her like this

M.J. Beautiful Chef and the King of Pop




Michael Jackson chef recalls doctor's role, final days



By LINDA DEUTSCH (AP) – 1 day ago (Associated Press)



LOS ANGELES — On the day Michael Jackson died, his personal chef says her first hint of something amiss was when his doctor didn't come downstairs to get the juices and granola he routinely brought the King of Pop for breakfast each morning.



Kai Chase, a professionally trained chef hired by Jackson to maintain a healthy food regimen, recalled the singer's final days in an interview with The Associated Press. She also spoke about the role of his personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, who is now the focus of a manslaughter investigation.



Chase said Tuesday that she had gotten used to seeing Murray coming and going from the mansion. The doctor usually arrived about 9 or 9:30 p.m. and would go upstairs to Jackson's room, and she said she would not see him again before she left — sometimes late in the evening — but understood he was staying the night.



In the morning, when she arrived for work, Chase said she would see the doctor coming down the steps carrying oxygen tanks. When Murray didn't come downstairs the morning of June 25, "I thought maybe Mr. Jackson is sleeping late," Chase said.



"I started preparing the lunch and then I looked at my cell phone and it was noon. About 12:05 or 12:10 Dr. Murray runs down the steps and screams, 'Go get Prince!' He's screaming very loud. I run into the den where the kids are playing. Prince (Jackson's oldest son) runs to meet Dr. Murray and from that point on you could feel the energy in the house change.



"I walked into the hall and I saw the children there. The daughter was crying. I saw paramedics running up the stairs."



At that point, Chase said, the small group that was gathered — the children, their nanny, a housekeeper and Chase — held hands and began to pray. As paramedics raced up to the room, Chase recalls, "We were all praying, 'Help Mr. Jackson be O.K.'



"Then everyone was very quiet."



At about 1:30 p.m. she said security guards told her and other staff to leave the property because "Mr. Jackson was being taken to the hospital."



When she came outside, she said, ambulances were in the courtyard and a crowd had gathered.
Chase, 37, who has cooked for other celebrities and comes from a show-business family, was hired by Jackson in March, let go in May, then returned on June 2. She said the pop star's focus was on fresh, healthy food for him and the children.



She said she prepared meals for the family and occasionally for Murray. She said Jackson was in training for his upcoming shows in London and told her: "You have to take care of me."
On most days, she said, Murray would bring Jackson the special fruit juice drinks Chase prepared for him, followed by granola with almond milk. For lunch, Jackson would eat with the children from a menu that included such things as spinach salad and chicken.



Murray sometimes joined them for dinner, which might be a seared ahi tuna. She said the doctor conferred with her about the 50-year-old pop singer's food and made sure that he ate.


The only oddity was the oxygen tanks. Chase said she never asked about the purpose of the oxygen and she saw no sign that Jackson was on drugs or was in failing health.


Miss B :( Beautiful isn't she?!!
