This show got it right! Just right for prime - time anyway LOL. Created by KENYA BARRIS and produced by it's stars ANTHONY ANDERSON and LAWRENCE FISHBORNE, this is what I think is an accurate enough portrayal of a successful black family living in an upper class neighborhood. The father Andre portrayed by ANTHONY ANDERSON is struggling with his rise to success and the lack of knowledge his children have of what it took for him to get there. He is an advertising executive who just received the promotion he's been waiting for. But there's a catch, he's now vice president of the Urban division only. No one except Pops can seem to understand why this bothers him so much, not even his bi-racial wife Rainbow played by TRACEE ELLIS ROSS. The laughs were non-stop for me. I loved how most jokes were funny and worked even with the racial undertones. The stress just keeps piling up as his son tries out for field hockey and not basketball and changes his name from Andre to Andy, his younger childr ...READ MORE

Singer Desiree Coleman-Jackson Takes On New Name KADESH And Encourages Confession, Transparency and Reconciliation To God With New Radio Single "Strip"

Singer, songwriter and actress Desiree Coleman-Jackson is a noted popular voice in Gospel music. The soulful, yet sweetly passionate singer, native of Queens, NY, is now known as KADESH. The name KADESH, (consecrated or sanctified, holy), signifies the banner of God's grace and His majesty, and with this new name, she continues to personify resilience in the face of adversity with her unshakeable faith in God.

    The Sum of Your Choices....

    The Sum of Your Choices....

    Today has arrived. You know that it is the way it is because of what happened in the days before. Every thought and every action has a consequence, and today is the sum total of all those consequences.
    This moment right now is completely as it should be. If there were no consequences, then you would be completely ineffective. Though sometimes those consequences seem difficult and even unbearable, they are infinitely preferable to the alternative.

    In your consequences reside all of life's possibilities. If you choose to take action, it will produce a result. Every accomplishment is based on, and every dream depends on this mechanism.

    Sometimes the connection is unclear. But regardless, that connection is there. Sometimes the necessary actions fail to get taken, and undesirable consequences will be the result. Yet even in such failure is the possibility of success, because as soon as the actions are adjusted the consequences improve.

    Remember, you are blessed with the inevitab ...READ MORE

    Amanda Bynes was arrested Sunday by LAPD at 4:10 AM and charged with DUI. She was held on 15k bail and released later that day. I thought things were just looking up for the 28 year old whose had a rough couple of years starting with erratic behavior beginning in 2012. She is currently on probation from a DUI that year. In 2013 she entered rehab after being held for mental evaluation. She was then released to her mother who then acted as her conservator, it's unclear if she still is. She left rehab in December and enrolled into the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. I am definitely sad to see this former Nickelodeon star continue to struggle legally but even more mentally. She's definitely talented staring most recently in 2007's Hairspray and 2010's Easy A. But since then she's stated that she has retired from acting to pursue a career as a rapper. Then she stated she was just taking a break from acting, and is now enrolled in school. Everything has just seemed like more err ...READ MORE
