In his new book he zeros in on what motivates men and provides tips on how women can use that knowledge to get more of what they need out of their relationships, whether it's more help around the house, more of the right kind of attention in the bedroom, more money in the joint bank account, or more truth when it comes to the hard questions, such as: Are you committed to building a future together? Does my success intimidate you? Have you cheated on me? In Straight Talk, No Chaser: How to Find, Keep, and Understand a Man, Steve Harvey shares information on: How to Get the Truth Out of Your Man Tired of answers that are deceptive?

Last season proved that being the wife or girlfriend of a pro basketball superstar may have its perks, but once you peel away the bling and first-class luxuries, the glitzy glamour train often jumps way off the rails. Season 2 is one scorching summer in Miami fans will never forget!
Just like last season on Basketball Wives, we'll follow the extraordinary lives of Royce, Jen, Evelyn, Suzie and even a few new faces. Joining the inner circle is former The Real World star and basketball ex Tami Roman, who joins old friend Shaunie O'Neal, who herself is checking into beautiful Miami for her first single summer in years.
Last season set out to prove that these women, who've spent years being married to larger-than-life personalities, are really just the same as everyone else. Viewers watched them cope with marriages on the rocks, divorces, single motherhood and rough patches in their relationships just like those experienced by women all over America.

Not much is known of Hall's life before the Revolution. He was born in 1735 and was the slave of William Hall of Boston. His son, Primus, was born in 1756 to Delia, a servant in another household. In 1762, at the age of 27, Hall joined the Congregational Church, and soon after, married an enslaved woman named Sarah Ritchie. Eight years later, after Sarah's death, he married Flora Gibbs of Gloucester.
A month after the Boston Massacre, William Hall freed Prince; his certificate of manumission read that he was "no longer Reckoned a slave, but [had] always accounted as a free man." Hall made his living as a huckster (peddler), caterer and…

Cavaliers fans packed the Quicken Loans Arena last night to witness what they thought would be a slaughter for the Heat. Signs reading "I hate LeBron James," with t-shirt quotes like "The Lyin' King" or "Judas & Brutus & Benedict & LeBron," filled the arena. Hostility was high in the building last night. Despite LeBron James' unwelcomed return to Cleveland, he came out on top! With his mind-blowing 38 points, the Heat soared to a 118-90 win over the Cavaliers. James overcame adversity and reigned supreme on the court. Though Cleveland went through great lengths to display their hatred towards James, he told journalists he had nothing but the utmost respect for the city and its fans.

Female Rapper Khia does a review on the "Pink Friday" album and calls it TRASH! Right before the review, Khia wanted to make it clear that she was not "HATING" on Nicki Minaj, but she was rather unhappy with the album itself. After reading her blog, it was clear that this was more than an album review, but it was personal.
Here is a just a small portion of what Khia wrote:
"Shout out to the stylists and photographers who done a spectacular job, airbrushing and styling this “Dungeon Dragon” because we all know that this “Lint-Lizard” doesn’t look like this in person…. It’s AMAZING what a little make-up and camera angles can do!"

Cotton scarves, hats, headbands, etc. can cause friction on your hairline, which over time can lead to breakage. If you use something to hold your hair in place, make sure it's made of satin or silk materials better suited for your hair. Style That Works First, schedule a training session with your salon hair care professional to create a style that works for your life one that includes your workout schedule. Schedule this appointment on the last day of your workout week to allow the stylist to see your hair at its worst; they can then help you to get the most longevity from your style. If you plan to maintain your hair, you may …
