Following up to her successful to the award-winning book, “Girl, Get Your Mind Right!”, Smalls is tackling the issue of nice girls finishing last. “Men Love Abuse” is an honest book helping women become strong when dating a man by telling them not to call too much or to not to take any crap from a man.

Smalls philosophy is, “be a bitch and you will get hitched.” Men only understand strength, so if you want that guy, you better “abuse” him.  She’s not promoting violence bust uses the word “abuse” as a metaphor to treating guys not so nice. The reader will leave feeling empowered and ready to take on any man they are dating or soon to date. The rules are fun and easy and Smalls breaks down the problems and solutions to any issue that may come up in a “ship” (friendship, courtship, or relationship).

Casey Anthony Speaks Out For The First Time

For the first time since her July acquittal, Casey Anthony is speaking out and showing her face in a personal video diary she says she recorded in October. 

Her new look…a blonde bob and wearing black-framed glasses, Anthony, talks about her life in probation. She talks about how happy she is to have a computer, phone and camera she can call her own.

“It’s just a little surreal how much things have changed since July, and how many things haven’t changed,” she says. “But the good thing is that things are starting to look up and things are starting to change in a good way. I just hope that things stay good and that they only get better.”

Anthony makes no mention of her daughter Caylee, first reported missing in July 2008 and found dead five months later. Nor does she discuss the more than 1,000 days she spent in jail before being acquitted. But she does speak of the loneliness of living in hiding — and says the video camera has become her friend.

“This is the first of many, and I’m looking forward to this,” Anthony says. “It’s a little scary, because I hate being on camera. But I need to conquer that fear at some point, and this is a good start.”

“She is desperate to get her story out,” says one source, who knows Casey’s current whereabouts. “She thought this would be the best way to do it. Unfiltered, in her own words.”

I have no positive comments at all….

Jason Wu For Target

If you ever wanted to get your hands on the threads of Jason Wu, your time has come. Wu, who is s most famously known for dressing Mrs. Obama, is making an affordable line for Target starting Feb 6th-Mar 6th.

“My collection for Target embodies my signature aesthetic of feminine sophistication, with a mischievous nod to the 1960s,” said Jason Wu. “I’ve had an incredible experience partnering with Target and I am looking forward to bringing these affordable designs to women across the country.”

With the madness that was Missoni, I can only imagine that the store will be sold out and the website will be crashed. The prices range from $19.99 to $59.99 for apparel and $19.99 to $49.99 for handbags and scarves.

Funny S@#! That Everyone Says

What about the things that White Girls Say To Black Girls?

These are hilarious! What’s next? Things Black Babies Say To White Babies…Things Cats Say To Dogs…Things Dogs Say To People….the list can go on and on!
