Icon Oprah Winfrey was raped by her 19 year old cousin at the age of nine and later abused by a neighbor and an uncle.

Who else here thinks risking your life to meet some ridiculous beauty FAD is about as dumb as you can get? You don’t see men doing this crazy crap to get a date. They’ll go to the gym, maybe get some hair implants and get their teeth fixed, but that’s about it. What’s up with us??

Join the ranks of many southern families who make this nicely spiced pie–instead of pumpkin–their holiday dessert, including mine! This is my late wife’s recipe, I’ve found none better. As soon as she started to bake it, the smell was amazing. The better the pie smells the longer it seems to take. (Of course that is all just perception), It felt like hours before the pie was cooked, then cooled enough to eat. We ate it with whipped cream and boy was it good.

I’m unsure anyone besides Tyler Perry didn’t see this coming. In a case of negro-stay-in-your-lane, Tyler Perry’s new flick, Alex Cross, is getting a slew of rotten tomatoes thrown his way as most folks think he should just retire his pants and keep on the house dress.
