Oh, boy! Another celebrity marriage has come to an end… but this one was unlike any of the others. This one lasted for 8 years and began when both of the participants were 14 (Robin Thicke) and 16 (Paula Patton).
Instead of people being sad at another broken home involving a child, admitting they don’t KNOW WHAT happened and wishing the couple all the best, or keeping their mean spirited ‘I told you so’ speculative thoughts to themselves, it seems as though folks are reveling in the fact that this marriage has devolved.
Not only that, but the racist and bigots have gladly jumped at the chance to snatch on their Klu Klux Klan masks and bring race into the equation – despite Paula Patton being a mixed race individual herself.
The Black guys also made an appearance to try to convince good looking and successful women, presumably brown skinned like Paula, to stay in their lane and stick to their own race of men b/c interracial relationships never work out! (Despite interracial marriages between White Men and Black Women having the highest success rate)
Here’s an awesome contribution to the discussion about these two people’s lives: see Jimbuscrepes. (From Gawkr): note JimbusCrepes not only tries to tell ladies that men of their own race will ‘understand’ them better. Really? I can’t make out most of the sounds many Black males go around mumbling, much less try to understand the slang/ebonics they use when they try to ‘holla’. And don’t get me started on the (c)rap music!
He also makes sure to prescribe settling for the slightly older, and pudgy (black) guy… who probably looks a lot like JimbusCrepes because he’s less likely to stray.
Is it appropriate to mention the huge out of wedlock birth rates in the African American community? Also, I guess less men can get divorced if they never commit and get married in the first place like many Black men are averse to doing.
Anyway, I digress. Did nobody’s mother ever teach them ‘if you have nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all’? Especially when it comes to a delicate subject like a dissolution of a marriage? Just uncouth.
Please, do me a favor and if you catch someone spouting off online about why they are happy for the separation, why Paula deserves this because she ‘flew the coop’ or any other such nonsense, and put them in their place!
Also, post the link in the comments section for other readers to go and pile on top of them for their bad manners.
P.S. – to the haters: “One monkey don’t stop no show!” This woman and man’s separation will not convince us to come on home. You need MORE people
I give you Christelyn Karazin’s, from Beyondblackwhite.com and Jordan Harbinger’s new internet dating series, Swirlr. Can I just say it’s about time dating shows showed Black women and White men together who look and act like normal people.
For years we’ve complained about the lack of Black women on mainstream shows like The Bachelor. The only time we saw Black women and White men searching for love was on VH1 with New York and her cast of insane characters. Every now and then we’d get one Black girl thrown into the mix of a dating reality show but she was usually out of the picture or set up with Black guys.
I’m glad someone decided to do something about that, and I can’t think of anyone more deserving than Ms. Karazin.
The show seems to be exploring Black women and White men who have needlessly shut down their options by solely dating within their race in the past. Karazin coaches them to look beyond black and White (what they are normally used to) and see what happens.
Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think. Watch out Patti whatever her name is…
So, what do you think? Will you be watching?

Back when I was in college, I answered a ‘student roommate wanted’ ad for an apartment in New York City. Little did I know, this was the day that would change my entire philosophy and outlook on men, and the course of my life forever.
Congrats are in order to beautiful Denise Vasi (of Single Ladie’s fame) and her director husband, Anthony Mandler.
The two tied the knot on October 14th, 2013 at a wine vineyard in Santa Ynez, California. The So, yes, I’m a little late… but you know what they say (better late than never)
The wedding included Jennifer Hudson, who was there to serenade the bride down the aisle. Since Denise has been living on her own since a teenager, she walked down the aisle by herself before her stepfather met her and walked her to her grandfather, who finally present her to Anthony.
Denise and Anthony met after she’d been cast to star in Lil’ Wayne’s “How To Love” video, which Anthony directed. Although Cash Money scrapped the video and went in another direction, Denise says, “Obviously it was disappointing to have the video not come out, but it was such a blessing. I got something much better.”
Their first date was at an Italian restaurant that Anthony had completely rented out – talk about romatic!
The couple honeymooned in Africa (Tanzania, Mozambique and Mnemba island), where they did some scuba diving, took helicopter rides, rode on a safari and more .
Denise described the gorgeous Anthony as being her soulmate in an interview with Essense.com “He knows what I want, what I need and he just does it. Those mornings when I wake up and he knows I have an audition, he has [already] gone out to get my favorite thing for breakfast. I don’t have to ask him. He just does it on his own.”
Rumor has it that Brad Pitt has got a crush on Hollywood new IT girl, Lupita Nyong’o.
And can you blame him? Lupita has style, grace and is very intelligent. She’s neat, polite and articulate, making her a black person Hollywood is comfortable embracing and thrusting in the spotlight.
The connection between Pitt and Nyong’o? The movie 12 years a Slave, which Lupita stars in, is produced by Mr. Pitt.
Of course, since Brad is all booed up with Angelina and his little soccer team, the chances of a romance are nil. (Although, if Brad were single, we’d have one sexy couple to swoon over).
Despite the above, Brad publicly acknowledging Lupita’s beauty only normalizes the attraction between Black women and White men, and that HOT white guys are checking for brown skinned girls (so forget what you heard! lol)
By the way, check out Lupita on the cover of Vanity Fair below. Now that’s how you should want to stand out!
What do you think of Lupita? I have a strange feeling we have a new celebrity swirler on our hands. All the White guys in Hollywood are expressing their admiration and she’s making it easy for them. Has the girl taken a fashion misstep yet?
