This is good stuff. Really intimate, open and honest. It's a discussion between 3 generations, Jada Pinkett Smith, her mother Adrienne and her daughter Willow. She calls this the Red Table Talks. Watch below.
You remember Lisa Turtle from the 90s sitcom, "Saved By the Bell"--well, she looks way different. She's only 38 years old but her new look makes her seem way older. But she says she has tons of projects in the making. That's good news....
I found out about my siblings later in life so growing up as an only child I LONGED for a sister or brother. Warren George's MY PERSONAL SOUNDTRACK reminds me of why I always wanted that little sis or big bro. He recalls how his baby sister created an all girl group and how he clowned her for it. It sounds mean, but its really cute and the epitome of the brother sister relationship....close, silly and all around loving.

I saw this story over at Essence.com. A New York Post columnist is obviously really angry at Jay-Z for moving the Nets from New Jersey to Brooklyn. Here's the story....
Phil Mushnick, who has made headlines before for his no-nonsense writing style, took to the pages of the Post to express his dismay with the rap mogul’s control over the Nets, which played their last game in New Jersey last week.
"As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots — what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new 'urban' home — why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?" Mushnick writes. "Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N------s?"
Phil didn't stop there.....he went in! Read the full story here!
