How is it that the sex tape clips, filmed at production-level quality, were released the same day the trailer detailing the event was already on Vh1's website and had been televised?
Dear ladies, although we've never met, mutual friends have attested to what nice people you are despite the less than flattering persona displayed on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Therefore, I was shocked to learn of the barbaric brawl you recently had on national television.
College is an exciting time, but it's also an expensive time. With the average debt for graduating seniors hovering around $29,000 (according to CNN), every incoming freshman should be taking a crash course in College Finances 101.
If you choose to forgo "Happy Birthday" for crooning about your "Magic Stick," you'd better be the guy in the Gandalf getup passing goodies out to the party-goers. You will NOT be "making it rain" around my girls unless you are a sprinkler technician.
American discourse demands that no one notice that being white gives people unearned advantages. It is long past time to admit that dominant groups do not prevail because their members are so exemplary but because the system is set up to ensure that they win even when they are mediocre.
Lupita Nyong'o was crowned People's Most Beautiful this year. Here are the top 10 reasons she's so woman crush-worthy and inspirational.
To let many men tell it, they are experts at deciphering the intentions of women and wooing them towards a mutual attraction, but this confidence quickly disperses when it comes to discussion of sexual assault.
Of course, the National Review has every right under the First Amendment to say all of these things, and I would defend to the death, in Voltaire's words, its right to say them. But that does not make them any less offensive -- or ignorant of the law.
It might seem odd to want to help those who have offended, injured or hurt others, but I'm persuaded that simply condemning and persecuting those who offend, those who fail, is not a healthy way forward.
A prosperous Nigeria would obviously be a huge win in the battle against poverty. Also, if Nigeria pushes past its hurdles and gets to where it could be, a blueprint will be lain for other African Nations to follow.
University admissions programs are not the place to promote partisan visions of social justice, but they are the place to produce the most dynamic and profound learning environments.
Ryan's comments last month reflect a political climate where Republicans not only do not meaningfully speak to African American citizens, but they tell themselves and their supporters stories about politics and economics that will ensure that they do not have to speak to African American voters in the future.
She's the self-proclaimed "drama queen" with sass and vocal power to boot. But KeKe Wyatt, star of TV One's hit reality series, R&B Divas: Atlanta sounds as if she is ready to tone down the drama, if only a tad bit.
Schuette is widely misunderstood as being a case about affirmative action. It is not. In fact, it leaves in place Supreme Court law recognizing diversity as a compelling governmental interest and permitting carefully constructed affirmative action programs.
Famed investor Warren Buffett once said, "The best investment you can make is in yourself." This statement holds great promise in helping to advance the state of retirement readiness for many Americans, especially today's 77 million millennials born between 1980 and 2000 -- most of whom are just embarking on their professional lives.
In the 1980s, we communicated via landlines and snail mail, we enjoyed our music on Walkmans and boomboxes, and we read books using... well, books. Much has changed in the past 30 years. Yet if you put a university president from 1986 next to a university president of today, you could hardly tell them apart.
The majority of those who deal and use crack cocaine and other drugs weren't violence-prone gang members, but poor and increasingly female, young blacks. They clearly needed treatment not long prison stretches.

On the Feb. 15 episode of 'The Montell Williams Show,' actor and comedian Mark Curry will reveal the true life tragedy he recently endured for a show centering on guests who overcame enormous odds to rebuild their lives.
The 'Hangin' with Mr. Cooper' star said he lived through a freak accident last spring when he inadvertently knocked an aerosol can of spray starch off a shelf, in his California home.
According to Curry, the can hit a metal wall bracket that connected the water heater to a wall and ruptured, causing an explosion and a fire that engulfed him.
He suffered second degree burns over 18% of his body and spent three days in a medically induced coma.
"It was so bad, I didn't think about it--the pain was so excruciating that I just threw it out. I wanted to kill myself," he revealed to Williams. "By the 4th day, I said, 'I can't do this.' I felt less than a man. I couldn't even look at my own body. I saw my hand with the peeling skin and threw up and I didn't look at myself again."
Curry, who had a memorable role on Kirstie Alley's short-lived reality based Showtime series 'Fat Actress,' says support from fellow comedians helped to lift his spirits and that, coupled with the love and encouragement from his family, made him want to live again.
"Sinbad called, Bill Cosby called and even Martin Lawrence's mother called. She sounded like my mother who'd just passed [away] earlier this year," he shared.
"When the comedians called, they all joked and accused me of freebasing like Richard Pryor," he said, adding, "When Bill Cosby calls, you get up - I don't care what's wrong with you. They made me laugh and that helped."
