So we’ve established that men and women are completely different creatures. Especially when it comes to our likes and dislikes. Here’s a list of things that men seem to love, while women feel completely different.
1. Sports – Sorry guys, but it’s true. No matter how much your lady says she doesn’t mind you watching the game, the truth is she does. To some women, games are for children. So to watch a group of grown men chasing each other around with a ball is an utter waste of time. There are a million more productive things we could be doing, but we love our guy so we suffer through it.
2. Video Games – Again, games are for children. There is nothing that gets under a woman’s skin faster than to see her man sprawled out on the couch with a game controller in his hand. Especially if she is cooking or cleaning. Men, have your games, but make sure you’ve done your chores first. Unless you are looking to cause problems with your lady.
3. Porn – Men love porn. This is no secret. And a lot of women will sit down to watch a good flick with their man, if it makes him happy. But please believe the thoughts going through a woman’s mind during the show is completely different than her man. Men think, “Wow, I gotta try that!” while their lady sits next to them thinking, “No she didn’t just do that!” Men, if you want to bring out the inner freak of your partner, porn is probably not the way to do it.
4. Thongs – Yeah, they may be sexy to look at, but try walking around all day with a string in your —, well, you get it. Give a girl a break, fellas. It’s hard enough being a woman in this world, don’t expect sexy all the time.
5. Bad Manners – We all want to be comfortable around our significant others. We all like to feel like home is the place we can kick back and be ourselves. But guys, this doesn’t mean your lady wants to see you scratching yourself or hear you farting all over the couch. Stay classy, or respectful, which ever means more to you. Your woman wants to think of you as clean and smelling good. Not looking and smelling like you need a bath.
The drama is still unfolding as our favorite shows come to an end. With two heated reunions and a very telling finale, it’s been another satisfying week for Reality TV. Let’s recap:
The girls continue to discuss the season, but without Porsha. Kenya goes on to get under everyone’s skin, even throwing shade at Phaedra by saying her husband strays. One thing is clear; Kenya won’t be walking away with many friends after this season is over.
Cynthia decides to open up to NeNe and express the lack of respect she feels in their friendship. NeNe responds the only way NeNe can, with a total lack of respect. She showed Cynthia that her feelings just don’t matter to her. Cynthia wishes nothing but the best for NeNe, but says she is done with the relationship.
Mama Joyce joins the cast to talk about her relationship with Kandi. She still isn’t happy with Kandi’s engagement to Todd, but says she will attend the wedding and be on her best behavior. The two get into a minor argument about how much Kandi helps her mother financially, but quickly dissolve the topic, stating it’s no one’s business. It doesn’t appear this relationship is going to get much better than it is, but both the love they share will see them through.
In a last attempt at “special attention”, Draya decided not to attend the same reunion as the rest of the girls. Instead, she was taped giving an interview with Shaunie O’Neal, the original instigator. Whatever, Draya…
Brittish reveals that her man has been accused of cheating on her, again. When he comes on stage to set the record straight, he displays a big baby-face smile and denies everything. Then, for at least the third time now, he gets down on one knee and proposes to her all over again. Exactly how many proposals and commitment ceremonies does one couple need before tying the knot? To each their own, I guess.
Brandi and Sundy get heated when the topic of their Paris fight comes up. Brandi’s anger rises when Sundy jumps up from her chair and the two go at it. Only they aren’t the only ones throwing blows. A few unknown members of the audience decide to run on stage and jump in the middle of the fight.
In the end, the audience was removed and the girls were able to finish the show, separately.
Is it me, or was this a VERY short season for the Black Ink Crew? As it all comes to an end, Ceaser and the crew decide to throw a huge party for Sky’s birthday. After all, she is “Queen of the Mixxy’s”. Everyone comes out to celebrate, including Puma and Sassy. The highlight of the party was when Ted was confronted by the dancing “little” person. Who knew the biggest guy in the room could be so scared of the littlest guy? Really, Ted?
Dutchess also decides to show up, with her new pair of ta-ta’s, which naturally (or unnaturally in this case) causes Ceaser to rethink his decision to break things off with her. Unfortunately for him, Dutchess still feels some type of way and wants no part of it.
The jaw dropper of the night was when a new woman named Niecey showed up. Apparently, she is a new piece to the puzzle of O’Sh*t’s past, including the baby she was pushing in the stroller. Yes, that’s right…Another Baby!! This guy is out of control and how he keeps finding girls dumb enough to have his child is beyond me.
As for the future, Ceaser and Puma discussed big changes that could be coming to Black Ink. And that’s not the only change. Walt helped his baby mama, Zenobia, to the hospital where she delivered a healthy baby boy. Congrats to them both!
It’s time for another Twitter Thursday. Here’s some the latest tweets from some of the hottest celebrities out right now.

Reality TV is known for its outrageous drama. Let’s face it; it’s why we watch! And this week was no disappointment. With reunion blowups and busted friendships, here’s the recap in cased you missed out!
Real Housewives of Atlanta – Porsha, Porsha, Porsha!
The gloves were off in part one of the RHOA reunion. However, it was more of a “Let’s attack Kenya” kind of night. And, as always, Kenya doesn’t make the situation any better. She came ready to battle with the girls, including bringing props to help her make her point. Too bad one got thrown across the room and the other fell apart before she could even use it. Better luck next time, Kenya.
Phaedra and NeNe wore their I’m-too-good-for-this attitudes proudly as they sat with their noses in the air. But that didn’t stop either of them from getting rowdy when it came to Kenya and her African Prince boyfriend. NeNe tried to set the record straight about meeting (or not meeting) the Mystery Man, while Phaedra put her on blast about hiring her last boyfriend.
But the show came to a screeching halt when Porsha finally had enough of Kenya talking about her relationship with her ex-husband, Kordell Stewart. She quickly jumped across the couch and hit her in the face. The girls (and tons of security) pull the women apart and Porsha was immediately disappointed in herself for losing control. But who can blame her, right? A girl can only take so much. Again, better luck next time, Kenya.
It’s more of the same with this group of “wives”. They are still vacationing in France and still acting as childish and ignorant as ever. This time, the instigator was Sundy. In an attempt to get Jackie and Malaysia back on good terms, Sundy decides to ask Malaysia and Brandi to breakfast. The girls go, despite being heavily hung-over from the night before, but inform Jackie and Sundy that they won’t be getting into any deep conversations. This pisses Sundy off and Malaysia and Brandi leave. Sundy follows them and causes a big scene in the lobby. Brandi has had enough and calls Sundy every name she could think of. Even some that didn’t make much sense, but she was on a roll and let the names fly. Sundy comes back and says Brandi needs to shut up and “go make a baby”.
Apparently, Brandi didn’t hear Sundy, but leave it to the newbie, Brittish, to go and tell her. Brandi snaps and tries to get to Sundy but Malaysia talks her down. Unfortunately, I don’t think that will help Sundy for long. Brandi will get at her one day…
Dutchess and Ceasar decide they are better off as friends, however awkward that may be. He asks her to come back to Black Ink and, of course, she does. But not without that don’t-talk-to-me attitude. The shop is full of tension when she shows up for work, which may be the exact reason Ceasar coincidently got sick and couldn’t come to work that day. Well played, Ceas. Well played!
O’Sh*t has the bright idea to get all three of his baby mama’s together to try and get some peace among the co-parents. Now, most people would agree with Walt and say who in their right mind would want to put themselves in that kind of hostile situation. But you got to give it to O’Sh*t for thinking about the kids. He desperately wants his children to know each other and be close to one another. Too bad he picked the wrong baby mama’s for all that. Especially his fiancé, Anya. She wants no part of the “one big happy family” scenario and makes it clear she will not be dealing with any girl from her man’s past. Child or no child, she doesn’t deal with bitches!
It’s been another crazy week of Celebrity Tweets! From really bad advice, to sharing way too much information with the world, here are the top 7 craziest tweets of the week.
1. Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) – Thanks for the advice!
Walk up to your boss, look them directly in the eyes the way Rose looked at Jack in Titanic & kiss them then walk away keeping eye contact.
— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) April 17, 2014
2. Erica Mena (@iamErica_Mena) – Recipe for Love
I found that vulnerability is the glue that holds relationships together. It’s the magic sauce.
— Erica Mena (@iamErica_Mena) April 12, 2014
3. Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) – TMI, Kelly!!
Am I a sad ass that I wear knickers/thongs that match my hair with my name on them? http://t.co/oSRvt5lpNH
— Kelly Osbourne (@KellyOsbourne) April 17, 2014

— #Jankin (@Puma213) April 17, 2014
For the past few years I’ve watched your life play out on my TV screen. I’ve watched you go through both highs and lows in your personal and professional life. I’ve watched you flipped out on Joseline Hernandez for her relationship with Stevie J. You’ve called her everything from a dirty bitch to a home-wrecking whore. You’ve criticized Joseline for the way she dresses, her business etiquette, and her stripper past. Yet, here you are, assed out, in a whole new kind of reality.
Now, I know calling it a “sex tape” gives you the out to pretend your not a porn star and this is not a porn, but let’s put our big girl panties on and call it what it is, shall we? I mean, where were you when the whole world put Kim Kardashian, Farrah Abraham, and so many more desperate women like yourself in their place on this topic? Sex on tape is called porn. The people having sex are called porn stars. It’s not that hard, really.
And the fact that it coincidentally came out right before the new season of Love and Hip Hop Atlanta starts, which is rumored to be all about your sex scandal, even further proves that this was a means to make money, or a poor attempt to make yourself relevant.
From one mother to another, I can only hope that some how, some way, your precious daughter never comes across mommy’s “sex tape”. Perhaps her new Step-Mom can help teach her boundaries on how to be sexy without being slutty. I only hope that this season’s episodes show you in your true form instead of the innocent, classy woman that you have tried to be thus far. Everything that is done in the dark, must come to light, Mimi. Especially when you put a camera in the room.
Good luck in your new porn career!
Things are heating up on Reality TV as tempers continue to rise and attitude is thrown around like a frisbee. Here’s the recap for this week in case you missed it:
Finally, it was opening night for Kandi’s musical and the house was packed. Porsha really stepped up and played her part very well as did everyone else. It appeared to be a real success. Well, to everyone except Mama Joyce. Even though she smiled and said she liked it, she obviously felt some type of way about the way she was portrayed. In the end, she and Kandi once again decided to “agree to disagree” and swept their problems back under the rug.
Velvet was laid to rest, in the middle of nowhere might I add, and it appears Kenya is no closer to moving on than before. She sobbed uncontrollably as Cynthia and her Aunt Lori stood by to witness the emotional farewell. Perhaps now she can get back to taking care of that fake baby that has been M.I.A. for two episodes. I guess we’ll find out in the reunion show next week what happens with that.
NeNe was unable to attend the opening of Kandi’s musical due to some health problems. She felt some sharp pains in her side and back and after Greg’s initial diagnosis of “trapped gas”, she decided to go to the ER. She found out her lung had collapsed and was ordered to take it easy for the next few days. Get well soon, NeNe!
The ladies arrive in Paris for Jackie’s “adventures in Cognac making”. Everyone but Draya. And once again, Jackie has instigated all the drama. After a day of sightseeing and exploring, Jackie decided to pick a fight with Brandi, which led to Malaysia throwing her hands up and being done with Jackie and her B.S. Jackie, of course, finds no fault her own and plays the innocent victim once again. It seems these girls just can’ t get it together.
Dutchess is back…with a vengeance! Ceaser has been caught cheating on her and she is not having any part of it. She calls the police and throws his stuff out of the house. In the heat of the moment, they both say some pretty foul stuff to each other, but they both regret it before the end of the night. There’s obviously a lot of love between them, however toxic it may be.
O’Sh*t, with his ever-so-romantic-self, headed over to the nearest pawnshop to buy his third Baby Mama an engagement ring (I’m sure she’s going to love seeing that episode!). He popped the question at the park, in the middle of a tense discussion, and she immediately said yes. If they hurry, they can exchange vows before the baby is born. Or before he is sent off to prison, whichever comes first. Good luck, guys!
This week was another good one for reality TV. The drama heats up as tempers flare, emotions overflow and things go crazy! Let’s recap:
Real Housewives of Atlanta – RIP Velvet
Kendra’s furry baby, Velvet, has passed away. And of course, she is dramatically over-the-top about it. According to Kendra, Velvet was let outside and somehow got out of the gate. By the time Kendra found her, she was dangling in the mouth of the neighbor’s dog. Kendra is left devastated, crushed and inconsolable. Now, she is planning a memorial service with the girls. Really?!? Don’t get me wrong, I love puppies. Who doesn’t? But a full blown funeral? I don’t know.
And where is that baby she is supposed to be taking care of? I don’t think she’s doing it right.
Meanwhile, Kandi and Mama Joyce continue to work on their strained relationship by talking with a therapist. Mama Joyce is convinced Todd is no good for Kandi and is only using her for her money. But when Todd reaches out, once again, to try and make things right, it appears Mama Joyce is a bit more receptive this time. Hopefully things will get better soon, seeing as Kandi and Todd got married last week! Congrats to the Newlyweds!!
Porsha finally shows up to a rehearsal for the musical Kandi is putting together. No one knows if she will be ready for the opening show, but she has promised to show up to all rehearsals and take things more seriously. Only time will tell if she lives up to her word and comes through for her friend.
Basketball Wives: LA – We Do Pop Up’s Too
The drama continues between Draya, Jackie and Chantel. This time, Draya and her man, Orlando decide to “pop up” on Jackie and Chantel, causing the entire group to disrupt into chaos. Jackie quickly tries to take over the situation and her and Orlando to get into a heated argument. The entire thing takes an awkward turn when at some point they all agree they are basically saying the same thing. Nothing happened between Chantel and Orlando. However, this doesn’t stop the group of women from screaming at each other and making complete fools of themselves. Way to go, ladies!
Also, Jackie continues to work on creating her own brand of Cognac. She finds out she is going to Paris and can bring the girls along. Of course Sundy was right there, ready to ride the coattails as far as they will take her. Malaysia and Brandi are already invited. Will Jackie invite Draya? We’ll soon find out.
Black Ink – People Make Mistakes
O’Sh*t finally as his day in court for the gun possession that has been pending since forever. Only now some new tapes have been brought into evidence, sending the trial into recess for another month. The waiting is driving him crazy and is beginning to bore everybody else. I mean, send the guy to jail already!
Ceaser’s family shows up at the shop and confronts him about his relationship with his sister, Tiffany. Things quickly heat up when he feels attacked and starts calling her names. Ceaser’s mom tries to step in and help, only making things worse. In the end, Ceaser is left feeling like an outcast in his own family.
Dutchess attends Walt’s baby shower and continues to cry. I’m sorry, but can we please get the old Dutchess back? Oh wait, we’ll be seeing her soon now that Ceaser has jumped in the car with some other woman. This should get interesting real quick!
The mind of a woman is a very complicated place. It’s full of tension and worry, self-doubt and self-worth, and a ton of double standards.
Listed below are 4 things that go through a woman’s mind on a regular basis.
Sex – Believe it or not, fellas, your lady is thinking about sex almost as much as you are. Great news? Well, that depends. While most women want sex, it’s nothing short of a tightrope act to get us to give it up. Don’t do this, don’t say that. Crazy, right? Not really. Women are full of stress and tension from the day. Do something to ease that stress. Cook dinner, get the kids to bed, or fold that basket of laundry for her. These things go a lot further than a smack on the booty or some detailed description of what you want to do to us. Remember: Ease the stress to get more sex!
Jealousy – Women are very jealous creatures. We just can’t help it. And it’s not just in relationships. There’s enough jealousy to spread to our friends and family as well. But one thing that most of us want is to know that our man is jealous too. Just a little, though. Don’t go getting all controlling and possessive. That just adds to your lady’s stress levels, and well, you know where that leads.
Money – Women love it. Men love it. Let’s face it money DOES make the world go round. And while women struggle everyday to be independent and financially secure, it doesn’t mean that she won’t appreciate her man picking up the tab. Chivalry doesn’t have to die just because a woman has her own money. Pay the bill. It’s the manly thing to do!
Friends – Women only have one or two people in their lives that are considered true friends. This can include childhood friends, co-workers, and family members. Our friends may be older, younger, male or female. Anyone we feel we can truly trust. However, for most women it is a big no-no for their man to have female friends. Sorry, guys, this goes back to the whole jealousy thing and, well, we just can’t help it. Double standard? Yes. Think you can change it? Good luck.
Twitter has become one of the best ways to stay in touch with your favorite celebrities and keep up with what they are doing. Most of them are very open, expressing their personal thoughts and feelings. And some of them, well, they just take things a little too far.
Here are the top Tweets from this past week:
1. Jimmy Fallon – Apparently, life hasn’t always been this good for the talk show host.
