How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
My Atlanta trip was probably one of the BEST, no…it was THE BEST trip on the SWIRLING book tour thus far. I got to go to the CNN center NOT as a tourist, but as a guest with a tag and everything!

Just in case you missed my interview on Tom Joyner at the ungodly hour of 5:15 AM PST.
I’m going to take a temporary break from my no-sugar protest for this…
“Move over Steve Harvey “Think Like a Man’ and Watch out “Sex in the City” Swirling is a Tipping Point waiting to HAPPEN! This could easily be a BLOCKBUSTER FILM!” says Jessy

did this interview after my bedtime, so I’m pretty proud that I remained conscious.
