Gabrielle Unions Says She Told Dwayne Wade To Check Out Amber Rose Photos

Posted in: , ,

NBA player Dwyane Wade started following Amber Rose on instagram after she posted her last viral sexy pics, and it led to a lot of outcry as many felt he was thirsting after her and called wife Gabrielle Union's attention. I read about the uproar and felt it was just too contrived and childish. I know I showed Atala Amber's booty twerking video, and the bikini ones here, really what's the big deal?

Now, the actress who got married to the baller last summer seems to agree with me. She says she can't believe it made blog/TV news, revealing that she actually introduced him to Amber's Instagram. Below is what she said during an interview on Angie Martinez..

Chimamanda Adichie: Nigeria’s Postponed Election Is An Embarrassment Of Bad Choices

Posted in: , , ,

By Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Last week, Victor, a carpenter, came to my Lagos home to fix a broken chair. I asked him whom he preferred as Nigeria’s next president: the incumbent, Goodluck Jonathan, or his challenger, Muhammadu Buhari.

“I don’t have a voter’s card, but if I did, I would vote for somebody I don’t like,” he said. “I don’t like Buhari. But Jonathan is not performing.”

Victor sounded like many people I know: utterly unenthusiastic about the two major candidates in our upcoming election.

There was an earlier report today which I posted about the family of Bobbi Kristina Brown agreeing to remove her from life support tomorrow to coincide with the third anniversary of her mother's death. However,  the Brown family has now released an official statement on the comatose 21-year-old, rejecting the initial reports that she will be let go tomorrow, Feb. 11, being the third anniversary of Whitney Houston's death.

Bobbi Kristina is the only daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown and has been hospitalized since last week Saturday when she was found unresponsive and face down in a filled bathtub in her home.

But they insist all articles based on unnamed "sources" is false reporting. Read the full statement below...
