SNL does Paula Broadwell

SNL has an uncanny way of digging into the recesses of the average person's mind and flipping a scandal into pure unadulterated comedy! I knew I was not alone when I felt that the biography of General David Petraeus co-written by his mistress, Paula Broadwell, had a more salacious first draft...





Anyway, the Petraeus affair is crazy. I have not watched Scandal, but from what I hear, this might give the show a run for its money! All of these married folks with serious responsibilities sure had a lot of time to commit all types of acts of foolishness.

This Paula lady is married to a very handsome doctor here in Charlotte. General Petraeus has been with his wife for over 30 years! And then the "socialite" aka Kim Kardashian-wannabe Jill Kelley is a whole lot of messy and a little bit of crazy from what I've read.

Clockwise from left to right: General Petraeus, Paula Broadwell
with General Petraeus, General John Allen and his
sexting partner, Jill Kelley.

It floors me that people who are supposed to be the leaders in a world are so trifling in their personal lives. But I should not be surprised...everybody has a breaking point, and no one is perfect.

Anywho, this sordid circle has General Petraeus messing around with Paula Broadwell, General John Allen sending over 30,000 messages via text and email between he and Jill Kelley, who is married to an oncologist in Tampa, Florida. 

Crazy right? And it all blew up when Kelley got shook by threatening messages from Broadwell to back up off her man. Ummm...wait a minute! Mrs. Broadwell, you mean to tell me you in your side-chick hustle had the audacity to tell some other scandalous broad to leave your MARRIED lover alone?# iCANT

A Sense of Safety (Guest Post)

A Sense of Safety: Protection for Survivors of Domestic Violence February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month . Many young adult DV relationships begin during the teen years. When involved in a DV relationship, a person's safety is very often in peril. Nora Hood guest blogs for YBBG in this post. A Sense of Safety: Protection or Survivors of Domestic Violence. Approximately 20,000 calls are made to the National Census of Domestic Violence Services every day. It’s a fact of life for domestic violence survivors who live in fear that a former partner will show up without warning, seeking revenge. Unfortunately, the vast majority of victims haven’t prepared a plan of action, or had security or monitoring devices installed. Protection is a major concern in light of the fact that three women are killed by a partner every day. Providing for your safety and that of your children can seem an overwhelming objective for domestic violence victims who are just trying

Brian Banks, falsely accused of rape by Wanetta Gibson

Brian Banks celebrates with his mama. Photo from LaTimes UPDATE A comment posted below led me to Brian's website  http://brianbanks.org/the-incident/  . There, I read the story from his perspective.  According to him, he and Wanetta Gibson never had sexual intercourse.  They merely fooled around.  At the time he was sixteen years old, which makes his incarceration even more atrocious.  You can continue reading the original post I made below. ______________________________________________________ He was only 17 years old in 2002, and a hot commodity on the football field. One day he links up with a classmate, and they have sex. When the girl's mother finds out, Brian Banks is arrested and charged with rape and kidnapping. He faced 41 years in prison. His attorney advised him to plead no contest to serve less than a quarter of that time. Brian Banks relents. Meanwhile the girl, Wanetta Gibson, continues to keep up the charade.  Her mother eventually sues the Long Bea

Guy Secrets: He treats his friends better than you

I know, the title of this blog post may have caused a screw face with some of you. However...many women often complain about how much time their men spends with friends. There's a reason for that... If your man spends more time away from you and with his friends... It's because he likes them and feels obligated to you. That may seem a little crazy, but someone really can love you, but not like you very much. If your relationship is more like a chore than a good time...trust me, your dude will always look for an escape. He will take on more hours at his real job, join an extra rec league, hand out with his boys more, etc. There is a cure for that, though... If you and your boo have a genuine friendship...enjoy similar activities, can talk and joke with each other, really find joy in each other's personalities...he will actually want to spend time with you. More than that, when a dude considers you a friend, he feels more free and less tied down. Honestly,
