    I love love love Robin Thicke, I actually went out to BUY the album, after owning the bootleg for months. I love how he loves his wife Paula Patton, he seems to really worship her. Maybe I need to get me my own oyibo bobo hmmm.

    Diddy is such an ashewo… while Kim is home with his children, the buck toothed fool is traipsing all over Sundance with that backup singer/dancer Aubrey then Sienna “homewrecker” Miller in NYC. The man sef, until his kini falls off he won’t be happy. Kim too, she must like the wahala, the dude has eaten up her adult life.

    Muah!!! I actually sat up for hours on Wednesday looking for pictures Pdiddy’s twins…couldnt find any, I finally gave up around 3am. I have been watching Kim Porter on my network TV wicked Wicked Game and I noticed she was pregnant so I got curious and googled her but found no pictures of the baby……this was quite a delight…thanks ma!

    If its is any consolation to Ms Misery who wrote in a few weeks ago complaining of singleness, I am single too 33 going on 34 and the Kodjoes are my inspiration as a couple. Boris is now 33 going on 34 this year and Nicole is now 36 going on 27 this year.

    They had their very first child (for both Nicole and Boris) called Naaki when Niole was 34 and Boris was 31, in less than twenty four months another beautiful bundle was delivered here in atlanta when nicole was 36 and Boris was 33 yrs old – but look how beautiful they look as a couple. Nicole already went thru one bad marriage which was very short lived, but now see what God blessed her with in such a short period of time – i am sure at 34 before she married Boris she probably doubt love will come.

    I am sure you may think ma friends have two three kids and i havent even started, You will be amazed within 36 months God can bless you with three. Same with Toni braxton and his husband – with 24-36months at age 33 she had two sons, and many other celebs in hollywood, Julia Robert, Brook Shields etc – the lis goes on – i am using these ppl as example cos i dont know anybody i know that you might know – for me to use them as examples to you.

    Its never too late, several people are my insipiration when it comes to marriage and birth apart from Biblical women and Nicole and Boris are one of the couples i love the most. Such a beautiful family. They may be a rare situation but it can happen to you too. I have that little potrait framed and on my kitchen counter I look at everyday – not necessarily a hunk like Boris, but some one who will make my heart smile.

    So on that note put a smile on your face and believe there is still love out there. It will come “IF” you believe.
