Dear Belarich: 4 Months Ago My Friend Died in Labour Now I Want Her Husband

Dear Belarich,Two years ago, I met this incredible young lady, and let’s just call her ‘Cee’. We became friends and got along really well. She met this amazing guy and they decided to get married. Cee made me her maid of honor on her wedding day. Things were really good, and then she became pregnant mid last year. Unfortunately, she died in March this year as she was giving birth. She didn’t even get the chance to see her son, but fortunately the baby survived.
Now, here is the story: I have been hanging around the husband a lot, and on a friendship basis. He has been really nice to me, and I think I’m developing feelings for him. I think about him all the time, and I’m beginning to see him in a new light. He is so nice, and would actually make perfect husband material. I cannot see myself with any other man except for him. But, the other problem is he still talks about his wife a lot, maybe it’s because it’s just been four months. But, I have been dropping hints of interest and he is not even noticing. I also believe I can be a good mother to the child.
From reading your blogs, you always state that going after your friend’s man is a Big NO-NO. But, what if she is dead! Is it still a Big NO-NO?

Why Are You Single??!

Today, I was going through some possible topics for the TheKorroShow tonight and I came across this article by Television writer, black woman and memoirist Tracy McMillan, title Why Are You Single. The thrice-married (currently single) McMillan actually has some pretty solid things to say in her piece. Here’s a gem:
 “The bottom line is that marriage is just a long-term opportunity to practice loving someone even when they don’t deserve it. “ That’s a keeper right there. Marriage is not easy. It is not a matter of reliving the joy of your wedding day everyday for the rest of your lives. It’s work. Sometimes fun work, but work nonetheless. But for single women (especially black women), who are constantly bombarded with articles telling them why they are single or why their chances of getting married are slim to none, it gets tiresome, draining. Sometimes women are single because heck, they just want to be single. Not every woman has a goal of getting hitched. And sometimes there are other reasons for being single like you only date black men and you live in a town that has virtually none. Maybe you have financial or academic goals you want to reach before you jump the broom. There are many possible reasons as to why a woman is single".
I thought it would be good to ask you the question that everyone seems to want to answer on your behalf. Why are YOU single? Do you have the desire to get married one day?

Serena Williams Apologizes For Steubenville Sexual Assualt Statement

In reply to a statement that took the bloggersville some days back regarding the Steubenville Sexual Assualt, Serena Williams took to her blog to issue a statement and to set the record straight.
“What happened in Steubenville was a real shock for me. I was deeply saddened. For someone to be raped, and at only sixteen, is such a horrible tragedy! For both families involved – that of the rape victim and of the accused. I am currently reaching out to the girl’s family to let her know that I am deeply sorry for what was written in the Rolling Stone article. What was written – what I supposedly said – is insensitive and hurtful, and I by no means would say or insinuate that she was at all to blame. I have fought all of my career for women’s equality, women’s equal rights, respect in their fields – anything I could do to support women I have done. My prayers and support always goes out to the rape victim. In this case, most especially, to an innocent sixteen year old child.”
If you didn't read the alleged statement, here it is...
"We watch the news for a while, and the infamous Steubenville rape case flashes on the TV—two high school football players raped a 16-year-old, while other students watched and texted details of the crime. Serena just shakes her head. “Do you think it was fair, what they got? They did something stupid, but I don’t know. I’m not blaming the girl, but if you’re a 16-year-old and you’re drunk like that, your parents should teach you—don’t take drinks from other people. She’s 16, why was she that drunk where she doesn’t remember? It could have been much worse. She’s lucky. Obviously I don’t know, maybe she wasn’t a virgin, but she shouldn’t have put herself in that position, unless they slipped her something, then that’s different."

The American Medical Association Labeled Obesity a Disease.

One word could have a big impact on the way doctors treat obesity in the United States. The American Medical Association has adopted a new policy that officially labels obesity as a disease “requiring a range of medical interventions to advance obesity treatment and prevention,” according to an AMA statement. The physicians’ group voted to approve the obesity policy, among others, on Tuesday during its annual meeting in Chicago.

The U.S. obesity rate increased almost 50% between 1997 and 2012, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Today, nearly 30% of American adults are considered obese, and the problem is almost as prevalent in kids. Childhood obesity has more than doubled in the past 30 years, the CDC says. Obesity for adults is defined as having a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or higher. BMI is a way to measure body fat based on your weight and height. (Calculate your BMI here)

Being obese increases your risk factor for developing many serious conditions, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, liver disease, sleep apnea and osteoarthritis. In fact, obesity has been linked to almost every chronic disease in some way or another. For more click CNN

Canadian Model Who Earlier Claimed She Slept With Kanye West Now Says it Was a Lie.

Canadian model Leyla Ghobadi, who sold her story claiming she had an affair with Kanye West while he was dating Kim Kardashian, has now revealed she had trysts with the rapper before he was with the now pregnant reality starlet.

According to a new report in the UK’s Sun, Ghobadi appears to be backtracking on her original tale, printed in Star magazine Wednesday.
“I was introduced to him at the Montreal concert. We met backstage as I knew members of his band. We ended up having sex at the Thompson Hotel,” 
She told the The Sun in a recent interview, contradicting her prior claim that the affair began last summer in Atlantic City when West picked her out of a crowd at his concert where Kardashian happened to be sitting in the VIP section at the same show.
“He then flew some friends and I out to Toronto for his two concerts in the next two days. We had sex again there. This was all before Kim Kardashian and he never spoke about her. But what I do know is that Kanye is a Romeo — he can never be trusted.”

Ghobadi had first been quoted saying that West did in fact discuss his girlfriend with her when they allegedly slept together after his July 2012 concert. Star also alleged that West, 36, tried to get in touch with the brunette through one of his bodyguards as recently as last week. However, Ghobadi responded: “I can’t believe all this publicity — I’m having anxiety attacks. I’ve been out with other singers and never kissed and told. I’m not starting now.”
“I’m not the type to talk about such things — I’ve got family and friends to consider.”
Something doesn't smell right...Hope she wasn't paid "....".

Hilarious: Michael Jackson's Ghost Testify's at Trial

I can't stop laughing ooh...The New York Post, reported yesterday that, Randy Phillips, CEO of concert promoterAEG Live, testified about a chat he had with his longtime friend Brenda Richie, who claimed to have talked to a medium who had channeled the spirit of The Gloved One after his 2009 death. In the supernatural tête-á-tête, Jacko’s ghost allegedly absolved Dr. Conrad Murray of any guilt in his death and admitted he “accidentally killed himself,” Phillips said.

“Brenda called me to tell me that she was in communications with Michael either through a medium or directly,” Phillips told jurors about his talk with Richie, the ex-wife of singer Lionel Richie.
“She said Michael told her that it wasn’t Dr. Murray’s fault, that he had accidentally killed himself.”
Brian Panish, a lawyer for Michael Jackson’s family, objected to Phillips’ ghost story, calling it triple hearsay, since Phillips was relaying a chat from Richie, who had heard from a medium, who — allegedly — spoke to a dead Jacko. Remarkably — over the laughter of courtroom spectators — LA County Superior Court

Pope Francis Admits That "Gay Lobby" Exists in the Vatican.

CNN gave a reports stating that, Pope Francis said a “gay lobby” exists inside the Vatican, a surprising disclosure from a pope who has already delivered his share of stunners, and a resurrection of church conflicts that had bedeviled his predecessor’s papacy. “In the Curia,” Francis said, referring to Catholicism’s central bureaucracy, “there are holy people. But there is also a stream of corruption.”

“The ‘gay lobby’ is mentioned, and it is true, it is there,” Francis continued. “We need to see what we can do.” Hints that the Holy See contained a network of gay clergy surfaced last year in reports about a series of embarrassing leaks to Italian journalists.

World's Oldest Person Dies at The Age of 116...

According to USA Today, Japan’s Jiroemon Kimura, who had been recognized by the Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest living person and the oldest man ever, died Wednesday of natural causes. He was 116. Kimura, of Kyotango, Japan, was born April 19, 1897. Officials in Kyotango said he died in a local hospital, where he had been undergoing treatment for pneumonia.

According to Guinness, Kimura was the first man in history to have lived to 116 years old. Kimura became the oldest man ever on Dec. 28, 2012, at the age of 115 years, 253 days, breaking the record set by Christian Mortensen, a Danish immigrant to the United States, whose life spanned from 1882-1998.

The title of oldest living person is now held by another Japanese, 115-year-old Misao Okawa, of Osaka. Okawa, who was born March 5, 1898, is also the world’s oldest living woman.

“Jiroemon Kimura was an exceptional person,” said Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records. “As the only man to have ever lived for 116 years — and the oldest man whose age has been fully authenticated — he has a truly special place in world history.”

Serena Williams Wins the 2013 French Open Title After Defeating Maria Sharapova

Serena Williams won her 16th Grand Slam title and her first French Open championship since 2002 when she beat familiar foil Maria Sharapova 6-4, 6-4 on Saturday. The victory completed the No. 1-ranked Williams' rebound from a shocking loss to 111th-ranked Virginie Razzano in the first round at Roland Garros a year ago. Since that defeat she's 74-3, including titles at Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, the London Olympics and the season-ending WTA Championships.

Williams whacked 10 aces, including three in the final game, to extend her career-best winning streak to 31 matches. She improved to 14-2 against Sharapova, with victories in their past 13 meetings and four of the wins this year. At 31, Williams became the oldest woman to win a major title since Martina Navratilova at Wimbledon in 1990 at age 33. Her 11-year gap between Roland Garros titles is the longest for any woman.

My Coconut Cake Recipe...Yummy!!

This is a delicious coconut cake recipe which I think will add zest to your day. Try a coconut icing to top it off and a pineapple/coconut milk drink to go with it. Do enjoy!!

Serves : 6
200g (8 oz) plain flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
75g (3 oz) butter
75g (3 oz) sugar
50g (2 oz) desiccated coconut
1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest  (optional)
1 egg
125ml milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Prep:20min › Cook:40min › Extra time:40min › Ready in:1hr40min
Sift flour, salt and baking powder together into a bowl. Rub in the butter until mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Add sugar, coconut and lime zest.
In a separate bowl, beat egg and add 100ml of the milk and vanilla.
Make a well in centre of flour mixture. Add liquid and mix well to form a stiff consistency, adding the additional milk if necessary.
Place in a greased 15cm (6 inch) cake tin and bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Icing ideas...

Try this Coconut cream cheese icing or try a simple buttercream, then sprinkle with more coconut. For an especially pretty presentation, toast the coconut in a dry frying pan for a few minutes over medium heat. For a sweet coconut, mix the coconut with icing sugar before sprinkling on the buttercream.
