Halle Berry thoughts on aging in Hollywood


Speaking to Yahoo! Beauty this week the Oscar winner shared her thoughts on aging in Hollywood. The 48-year-old beauty also revealed that she’s been advised to go under the knife.

Somebody is always suggesting it to me, ‘You know if you just a little bit of this and that, lift this up, then this would be a little bit better.’ It’s almost like crack that people are trying to push on you. That’s what it feels like.”

 “It is pressure. When you see everybody around you doing it, you have those moments when you think, ‘To stay alive in this business, do I need to do the same thing?”

“I just have kept reminding myself that beauty really is as beauty does, and it is not so much about my physical self,” Berry reflected. “Aging is natural, and that’s going to happen to all of us. I think of those women that I thought aged so beautifully, like Lena Horn. Even how Jane Fonda is aging — I don’t know what she has or hasn’t done, but she looks beautiful as she’s going about her way. I just want to always look like myself, even if that’s an older version of myself. I think when you do too much of that cosmetic stuff, you become somebody else in a way.”

Words to live by, aging is a natural process embrace the better, wiser you. Live, Learn and Love.

A man walks in and opens fire on a French Magazine


The masked attackers opened fire with assault rifles in the office and exchanged shots with police in the street outside before escaping by car. They later abandoned the car in Rue de Meaux, northern Paris, where they hijacked a second car.

Four of the magazine’s well-known cartoonists, including its editor, were among those killed, as well as two police officers. President Francois Hollande said there was no doubt it had been a terrorist attack “of exceptional barbarity”.

Sad tragedy!

Stuart Scott, the longtime “SportsCenter” anchor and ESPN personality  and on of my favorite sports analyst died Sunday. He was 49.

Scott had fought cancer since a diagnosis in late 2007, the network said, but remained dedicated to his craft even as he underwent chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

ESPN President John Skipper said in a statement that Scott was “a true friend and a uniquely inspirational figure” and that his “energetic and unwavering devotion to his family and to his work while fighting the battle of his life left us in awe, and he leaves a void that can never be replaced.” http://nbc.com

Bill Cosby rips Phylicia Rashad’s ex in creepy interview

Originally posted on theGrio:

The Bill Cosby train wreck interview series just made another stop – err crash.

The embattled comedian sat down with NewsOne Now anchor Roland Martin for an interview back in November – but the short clip was posted to TV One’s site Monday afternoon.

The mounting sexual assault and other allegations against Cosby were not discussed – an article on the website says it was “not long after Martin’s interview with Cosby that a number of women came out and accused Cosby of drugging them and raping them.”

The interview did occur weeks after Hannibal Buress called Cosby a “rapist” on stage so it’s not exactly clear why that wasn’t brought up at all.

Martin and Cosby did discuss Cosby’s famed TV role as Dr. Cliff Huxtable on The Cosby Show. Martin tells Cosby it was “always great to watch the interplay between [Cliff] and [Claire Huxtable.]” Thats’ when it gets weird.

“While recognizing that this is a significant change, my children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority. It is in this spirit that I sincerely ask that their privacy and the privacy of our family be respected during this transition in our lives.” 

Rock’s attorney, Robert S. Cohen, confirmed the couple has split.
