So as I’m on the way to shoot Chelsea Lately…I’m sad more than anything. After googling the gang rape story in Richmond and reading comments on blogs, it just leaves me sickened and really sad. The fact that race and socio-economics have been used to explain away a brutal gang rape…just sad…maybe I just have seen every kind of rapist and survivor….every race, color, religion, socio-economic status group…it’s all the same…a lack of regard for violence against women. Tolerated, and in this case encouraged by the mob surrounding the perps…laughing, joking and taking pics.
When I was 19 years old, I was raped. I was working at a shoe store in California, and the store was robbed. The person robbing the store ended up putting a gun to my head and raping me. As he was raping me, I felt as though I was floating over myself, thinking, ‘This isn’t happening.’ I blanked out and had an out-of-body experience, like I was hovering above seeing this horrible thing happen to someone else…not me. I was fortunate enough to go the UCLA rape crisis center after this horrific ordeal. It gave me my life back. My dignity and self-esteem were gone and they helped me find them again. That’s why I now lobby for state legislatures across the country and the federal government to help raise funds and awareness for rape crisis centers, and I speak to all different kinds of people across the country about what happened to me. My goal is to never hear the words ‘me too’ from someone after I say ‘I was raped.’

Less than a day after announcing being fired from his Philadelphia morning radio show, Charlamagne Tha God has detailed his departure from 100.3 The Beat.
While not ruling it out, Charlamagne said his revealing Beanie Sigel interview from last Friday (October 30) may have played a part in his firing.
“I don’t know, that’s what I’m hearing but I don’t know how true that is,” Charlamagne said about the Beans interview. “I don’t see why that woulda been an issue. I would hope that the powers that be, like Jay-Z, wouldn’t be that petty. But you never know. Yeah, my numbers were great. I’ve never had any disciplinary action, never been suspended, never been written up, never had any verbal warnings…As controversial as they say I am, I’m like a model employee. Any program director that’s worked with me will tell you that but that’s the way it goes in radio. That’s why you gotta treat these buildings like the Carter, man. You go in, set up shop, do what you gotta do and burn it down when it’s over.”
Shyne’s 1st Press Conference On Why He Changed His Name To Moses & Judaism & Juelz Santana Says Shyne Has To Get “Right” w/ Freekey Zeeky….
While not being specific, Santana said both Shyne and Dipset’s Freekey Zeeky had issues to iron out.
“Shyne, Shyne, they say he’s coming home,” Santana said. “I mean, I f*ck with Shyne, hopefully he got some good music to bring to the table. If we can link up, we can link up. I don’t know, him and my man [Freekey] Zeek gotta get right though, I heard him and my man Zeek wasn’t right, that’s the homie right there, Zeek. You know what I mean? But other than that, I f*ck with the boy. I shouted him out on my records.” (SOHH)
Finding happiness that she is currently single, Kelly admits she is in no rush to get married as she believes “everybody’s time is different”.
Being single is the source of Kelly Rowowland’s happiness and she herself has stated that she enjoys dating no one at the moment. “Being single is about celebrating and appreciating your own space that you’re in,” OK! Magazine quotes her as stating “I couldn’t have lived alone before. I always needed someone to share my space but now I like being by myself.”
That’s why she is in no rush to settle down. Speaking of getting married, the 28-year-old singer has no hesitation to share her perspective, stating “Everybody’s time is different.” She goes on elaborating, “I don’t expect to go down the same road as anyone else. I think it’s important not to put ourselves in someone else’s shoes, when they’re in a time in their life that we aren’t.”
“We have to appreciate where we are in our life in order to move on. You have to be happy with you and every decision you make. We can get caught up in what other people expect of us, but it’s important to live in your space and not anyone else’s,” so she adds.
Kelly Rowland is one of the founding members of all-girl group Destiny’s Child. It was reported last month that after leaving her recording company Columbia Records in March this year, she has been working on a new deal with EMI Music. A deal is yet to be sealed between both parties though.
OK… we all know that most men will have fun with bisexual women…but are somewhat hesitant about marrying them. Can you trust them if they are on the hunt for women while married to you? There are definite perks but what if she becomes the talk of the town at your kid’s school or PTA meeting or your neighborhood supermarket?
Hell No! It’s true that Men are curious about Bi-Sexual women because it is a chance to gain a new experience. But when it becomes time to settle down, a bisexual woman isn’t the idea wife. I can’t see taking her home to meet mama.
Yea! Bisexual women can be marriage material. A confident man can marry a bisexual woman and be just as happy. Bisexual women are just as capable of being monogamous as heterosexual women. A lot of dudes are just insecure within themselves.
I was dating a bi-chic for a minute and she wanted to get married and have kids. Its 3 things that restrained me from busting off a load in her 1). I knew I wasn’t going to marry herł). Child Support 3). Afraid that my off-springs would be bisexual as well. Overall it was just too much at stake.
A lot of men don’t marry bisexual women because they feel she’s unstable. Before a man gets married he wants to be sure. Men hate to be uncertain about a woman. That’s one reason it takes us forever to commit. However once we are sure it won’t be a problem. Marrying a bi-sexual leaves an error of uncertainty. But I’m sure if they have an honest relationship it can be just good as any other bond.
It’s just too much competition. Not only would you have to worry about men… but women too
You notice you don’t see a lot of older Brothers running around talking about threesomes and bisexual females. That’s because men grow out of the phase. When I was younger… I admit I fantasized about being with 2 females…and think most young boys do. However, after doing it once or twice reality kicks in and you realize it’s a fantasy and that’s all.
WHAT’S YA VIEW ON THIS TOPIC???

At 79-years old the “World’s Second Richest Man” Warren Buffett just made his biggest deal EVER – dropping $44 billion so his Berkshire Hathaway will own %100 of Burlington Northern Santa Fe which is a freight rail line that covers a large portion of the United States. According to the WSJ:
In a brief chat with CNBC this morning, Buffett described how the deal came together fairly quickly after meeting recently with Burlington Northern chief executive Matt Rose. “I made him an offer and he said it would take it to his board and it took about fifteen minutes,” Buffett told CNBC.
The rationale for the deal? “It’s a bet on the country basically,” Buffett told CNBC, adding that as the country recovers from this recession, there will be an increased demand to move goods. “They do it in a very cost effective way [and] they do it in an extraordinarily environmentally friendly way,” Buffett said of railroads.
Poor Bill Seebeck. He was playing a slot machine at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel when he struck the jackpot – a $166 MILLION dollar prize!!!! Unfortunately for him the casino says the top payout of the machine was only $90,000 so they’re not paying…..at least not that.
“The slot machine he was playing on Sunday malfunctioned, in what can be best described to the layman as a ‘computer glitch,” said the casino who’s reportedly working on an “agreement” with Bill in a statement.
Hopefully he at least gets the $90,000!!!
Beanie Sigel & 50 Cent Appear On Power 99, Talks About Marriage w/ The Kendra G. & Beans Signs To G-Unit….
Why do we feel like 50 Cent is somewhere smiling over this sequence of events we’re sure he didn’t orchestrate in promotion of his new album? Check out the latest update in Roc-a-gate 2009 as Beanie Sigel and 50 Cent appear on Power 99 radio station to answer Jay-Z’s answer. In this episode Beanie says nobody gave him two Bentley’s he was paying nearly $5,100 a month to maintain them, being stopped from signing a $800,000 deal with 50 Cent and how Jay-Z should let up on Dame Dash since he has taken everything from him. Beanie ends that interview saying he’s not going to stop interviews until Jay-Z responds.
Best part of the interview – 50 Cent says “yeah, uh huh” every time Beanie says anything. It’s crazy how 50 manages to find somebody who needs just a little nudge to go nuts for every album cycle, and then……….
