Yasmin Eleby Explains Why She Married Herself In 40th Birthday Wedding, Says No Regrets!

Posted in: , ,

Yasmin Eleby married herself in a wedding ceremony celebrated on her 40th birthday as a promise to herself should she remain single at that age. RML posted the story here with best wishes to her, but a lot of people who read about the self-wedding bashed her for fooling herself, and wondered why her friends and family didn't stop her.

In a new interview, Yasmin has explained her actions, and says she doesn't regret her decision to marry herself. She said her family and friends didn't stop her because they understand the real message she was passing, she said she even invited a couple of her exes and they came. Her mother actually walked her down the aisle, her older sister performed the ceremony, and her three other sisters were her bridesmaids. Read her interview with The Root, below...

Posted in: ,

Bruce Jenner has been off and on in the news for his changing look and last week, Intouch Magazine debuted the cover above that shows him as a woman and insisted that the reality TV star has been transitioning. Recent pictures seem to bear them out as Bruce has been papped growing out his hair and nails, getting lip fillers and makeup, and wearing earrings in both ears.

Yesterday on an E interview, Kim Kardashian said of Bruce Jenner, that he was on a journey which he'll talk about when he's ready. She also mentioned that he's the happiest she's ever seen him and that they the kids will support him 100% whatever the case may be. It seems all these was leading to the announcement of Bruce's new reality show that will document his sex change.

Posted in: , ,

President Barack and Michelle Obama travelled to Saudi Arabia yesterday to pay their respects to the new King Salman following the death of King Abdullah last week. The Obamas were greeted by an armed Saudi honor guard and a military band playing the national anthems for both the US and Saudi Arabia.

While many news outlets reported that several members of the all-male Saudi delegation refused to shake First Lady Michelle Obama's hand, it was only later that it emerged the reason that could be behind their actions.

Okonjo-Iweala Descends To More Name Calling In Response To Soludo

Posted in: , , ,

I was among those who were energized by reading Soludo's article on the failing Nigerian economy, here. It may not have been 100% accurate, but it worked with facts and figures, mostly eschewed ad-hominems, and slammed both Buhari and GEJ for their faults in their ongoing campaigns to be president. As the incumbent, GEJ obviously had more of the blame, but that is only as it should be. He is the one with a lot to prove and lose at the same time.

Unfortunately, his defenders have not towed the same line towed by Soludo but have mostly descended to name calling because of Soludo's previous political ambitions. Fami Kayode was the first to dash off a meaningless response that did worse damage on GEJ than Soludo's article.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!
