Image
Who could ever forget the hilarious and thrilling "Got 2B Real?"Well Patti LaHelle has done it again.   In a "Life After" session the shade gets real thick.

You'll love the homage at the end of the video. Get into the "Life After: The Cast of Got 2B Real"reunion below.

Rich Auburn (My HIV Story Continued)

Image
On Thursday November 29, 2012, I dyed my hair rich auburn. Auburn to me is a reddish, brownish color. It is actually a tad bit lighter than my natural hair color, which is a dark brown color.  Well as you know November 29, 2012 was the day that I found that I was HIV Positive.
  Instead of being depressed I went home and pulled out the hair dye that had been staring me in the face. So set the timer on my phone, opened the hair dye box, and I proceeded to apply the hair coloring.
  At the time, I was living with my dearest uncle. He asked me "Why Did You Dye Your Hair." I replied "I wanted a different look."
It was different look that I kept until August 2013. I chopped my hair for my sisters wedding and preparation to meet my birth mom. Well a year later to date on Friday, November 29, 2013, I dyed, my hair again.  To me this color symbolizes my strength and me embracing what some may deem a fatal sentence, into a new beginning of life for me. Although It's …

Former South African President Nelson Mandela Dies at 95

Image
It is with sadness that I report that Former South African President, Nelson Mandela has passed. He was 95 years old.The highly revered South African anti-apartheid icon who spent 27 years in prison, led his country to democracy and became its first black president.  Mandela was in power for five years becoming a symbol of revolution, resistance and triumph over racial segregation.  He also inspired a generation of activists and left celebrities and world leaders star struck.   Mandela was also a Nobel Peace Prize recipient in 1993 and raised millions for humanitarian causes.  NBC News writes
"In his jailhouse memoirs, Mandela wrote that even after spending so many years in a Spartan cell on Robben Island – with one visitor a year and one letter every six months – he still had faith in human nature." "He is now resting," said South African President Jacob Zuma. "He is now at peace." A state funeral will be held.

What to Write: Single Life and Holidays

Image
Well, It's been a hectic, yet fun few days for me. Thanksgiving was great and the weekend was fun. Here I am trying to figure out what to write.  So many thoughts come to my mind. So many flashes and so many ideas.  Especially with the holidays approaching and with me moving next year, I'm trying to relax and not stress.
  I could also write about how, This holiday is different for me because it will be my first in 3 years that I've not lived at home with my family.  It's different being an adult.  I always dreamed that I would be able to buy everyone presents, but however reality is showing me that with the bills that I have I'm sort of limited, but I'm okay with that. As long as I'm with family and have a great meal I'm okay.
  I could also write about how I'm trying to pretend that I'm okay with being single, but I really do hope that I one day find that perfect mate. This past weekend my friends berated me on how I am afraid of relations…

Sylvester -Living for the City

Image
What can I say about the legendary Sylvester James?  This man is a musical legend. Even though he's no longer with us on this side, he still lives on in his music. This past weekend as I've relaxed at home, I've been listening to Sylvester's music.    I've been really stuck on Sylvester's cover of Stevie Wonders "Living for the City." This song is a great hit about life and surviving in your surroundings. I love Sylvester's version especially with the choir in the background.  Living for the City is from Sylvester's album, "Mutual Attraction."  Get into the video below.
