We got great feedback on our last rundown of film and TV projects featuring black women so here’s more news. Film Kerry Washington to portray Anita Hill. Rihanna’s animated film, Home, opened at #1 with over $54 million at the box office, sounding beating expectations. View a few clips here. A film on baseball phenomRead More…
I got this letter from a reader the other day, and it was so impactful, I had to cut and paste just as is! It also goes along with my video commentary about an exchange I saw between a man and a women discussing their irresponsible sex practices that led to an unwanted pregnancy. Check […]
Some people think attraction with the opposite sex is either “there” or it isn’t. Not necessarily. Sometimes emotions like shyness and nervousness overwhelm us to the point that, even if we are attracted, we don’t show it. Wes Murphy and I did a demonstration on how to build attraction, and the chemistry we build is […]
Today is wash day for me. I have my staples, the things that are tried and true blue. Several Camille Rose Naturals products have joined the rotation because the results are undeniable. Big, fluffy, soft curls… Just about every item I’ve tried I like–especially the products in jars, because those tend to be heavier and […]
Those of you who have been following my Love Quest for a long time already know I am a bit of a mystic. I’m really fascinated by astrology and I often find that personality assessments created from a full birth chart to be both specific and accurate (feel free to insert your disbelieving eye-rolling here.) […]
I have seen trailers for upcoming movies to be released in the next few months. I see superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy, fairy tales, feel-good biographies and we are marching for civil rights… AGAIN. Do not misunderstand my words. With all due respect, I have deep appreciation for my mother’s generation. They marched, they sat at the […]
By Mamie Mooney I’m a huge fan of interracial dating. I just want to say that before I continue. It is my belief that people are made to love and be loved; and to grow, and be fulfilled in that love, regardless of color. All of the statistics that describe and prove us to be […]
Don’t you just love stories about characters who start off hating each other and gradually build an insatiable attraction? A debut novel by an author with the pen name, “Sepia,” Coffee and Cream, Kat and Katrina, is a story about Kat Bautista, a professional bodybuilder and personal trainer who knows who he is and what he wants. […]
Tamera Mowry (who was unaffectionately dubbed, “white man’s whore”) is pregnant again by her HUSBAND, Adam Housley. Remember when this happened? I love how this couple continues to thrive!
Presenting Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Friedrich! A few pictures from our celebration with my in-laws in Germany. They met in church in 2009, and just got married in Germany amongst a winter wonderland!
First, it was our vocal talent. Second, they took our lips. Then, it was our asses. Now, it’s our color. I guess everyone is better at being a black woman than an actual BLACK WOMAN. I’m in utter shock right now. The other side will perhaps argue that this is “bronzer.” Really? Is that what […]
The affect of colorism in Black America continues to be a topic of contention. While many of us are dating and marrying interracially, the wounds from feeling rejected based on hue are still raw with many of us. Such an occurrence played out this week on our Facebook fan page, when I posted a video […]

If you haven’t yet seen our weekly Google+ Hangouts, you’re missing out! Lots of fun, good conversation, and a great way to connect with community. (Hint: skip to 1:18 and you’ll get a clue of yet ANOTHER love connection from our private G+ group!) I had fellow You Tuber, Wes Murphy, back to talk about […]
About four hours ago, the exchange below took place during our current discussion on the film “Light Girls”. I wish to thank Neecy for asking some insightful – and quite possibly for some, uncomfortable – questions that I feel deserve further exploration. I have crested this side bar to the main article so that readers […]
We’ve lived in Temecula for seven years, and while I’d heard some rumors about crazy, freak snow storms, I thought maybe there were a few flakes and a dusting. Nothing like what I woke up to this morning. It basically snowed from about 1AM to 8AM, and of course the kids were delighted… By the […]
Both Fawn Stone and Lakesha Yvette Walker were featured as singles on Interracial Marriage and Family, formerly Swirling and Marriage. I have not been single for quite some time but as a dating and life coach understand that it is quite hard out there for women everywhere to find love. Throw in beautiful, successful and […]
Right now, Temecula is under a freeze advisory, which is pretty unusual for Southern California. I’m mildly concerned about my fall garden, because there’s a few crops that are sensitive to frost. But what I won’t be worried about are the sprouts that I’m growing indoors. For the impatient gardener, growing sprouts can give you […]
Sharing is caring!
The people who make careers of trashing black women in social media might not have counted on something: Critically thinking men of all races might investigate these claims to either confirm or dismiss them. You also can’t count out the increasing numbers of non-black men who are dating and marrying black women disproving all the […]
I’m so excited for 2015, because we’re about to embark on one of the most exciting things we’ve ever done. We’re all going to go on a journey. A journey to be the BEST VERSION of ourselves. Whether it’s with your mind, body or spirit (or all of the above) we’re going to go on […]
