A Husband’s Infidelity & A Wife’s Insecurities, Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


When a couple remain married after an affair, the victim’s self-confidence is gone.  After all, how can the one who’s been betrayed give their cheating spouse everything that the affair partner could – the excitement, the fresh conversation, the sex, the attention, etc.? After-all, self-esteem, self-concept and self-confidence are all very similar and somewhat related.

When a woman has been betrayed by her husband’s infidelity, no amount of words or healing can compete with the inner most thoughts in her mind. That woman is constantly trying to convince friends, family and the world that there’s happiness and tranquility in the midst of her forgiveness. This seems to be the case with Beyonce and jay Z of late, with nude pics surfacing online and throughout social media, attempting to share with the world how solid their love is.

This is a bit much but what’s the real issue here?

Join us at 6:30 p.m. EST with host Tracy L. Bell via Blog Talk Radio on “Conversations Of A Sistah” for Ms. Bell’s commentary “A Husband’s Infidelity and a Wife’s Self Esteem

Angelina Jolie Files for divorce from Brad Pitt


brad-pitt-jennifer-aniston-550x402Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Brad Pitt after she caught him cheating with his sexy co-star, a well-placed source told The NY Post’s Page Six on Tuesday.

Social media is having a field day with Jennifer Aniston memes. If you recall, Angelina Jolie was the woman who came between her and Jennifer’s then-husband Brad Pitt.

Jolie and Pitt tied the knot in 2014 after 10 years together. But it’s over now.

Karma is a brew best served hot and sweet.

Another woman is the real reason behind the sensational breakup of what many considered Hollywood’s most solid marriage.

Pitt, 52, was rumored to be creeping with his co-star Marion Cotillard, 40, while filming the war drama “Allied” in London.

“She hired a private eye because she felt that he was fooling around with her on the set, and it turns out, he was,” said the source.

Angelina suspected he was cheating with his co-star because she knew how he cheated with her when she was his costar. It’s always the same story, how you get him is how you lose him.

WNBA Star, Brittney Griner Did Not Have a Happy Father’s Day


brittney-griner-550x744WNBA star Brittney Griner took offense at her Twitter followers wishing her a Happy Father’s Day.

Thanks to President Obama’s gay agenda, Griner pays her ex-wife child support for twin girls she couldn’t possibly sire in this or any lifetime.

Griner’s Twitter followers taunted the 6′ 8″ Phoenix Mercury center for making a mockery of traditional marriage by divorcing her “wife” after just 28 days of marriage.

It’s funny how butch lesbians only want to be men when it’s convenient and it brings them the attention they so desperately crave.

Tasha Smith Ordered to Pay Ex-husband $7K a Month in Support


tasha-smith-divorce-550x444

Actress Tasha Smith is headed to divorce court after just ‘5’ years of marriage.

A judge ordered the Why Did I Get Married star to pay her ex-husband, Keith Douglas, $7,000 a month in spousal support — that’s in addition to the $50,000 she was ordered to give him last year.

It’s too bad Tasha didn’t pay attention to the warning signs of Dopamine addiction. She could have saved herself the heartache and pain of watching her now ex-husband spend her hard earned cash on other men.

From gossip tabloid TMZ.com:

Actress Tasha Smith will think twice about getting hitched again — the now ex-husband she calls a glorified assistant just scored a fat settlement in their divorce.

According to the court docs … the “Why Did I Get Married?” star has been ordered to hand over nearly $7k/month in spousal support to Keith Douglas. That’s on top of the $50k she already shelled out to him in December.

As we previously reported … their rocky marriage took some crazy twists, including mutual restraining orders, and both saying they feared for their lives.

The settlement wasn’t a total loss for Tasha … Keith had to give back her Mercedes.

Many are “pissed” with Al Sharpton


Redding_Sharpton

And one of them is his former Chief of Staff, Mr. Carl S. Redding (pictured with him above). In another article written by Redding and circling the internet, the man who was once considered a mentor; is now being chastised and blasted by Redding for failing to uphold his loyalty to ‘the cause’ he was once so passionate about.

In Redding’s article, he mentions the lawsuit Sharpton is named in by media mogul Byron Allen. He also recalls when Obama ran in 2008, how Sharpton failed to endorse the democratic candidate in favor of Hilary Clinton instead. Yet Sharpton has managed to rise in Obama’s good graces with access to the oval office.

Redding’s article is entitled “The Epic Failure of Al Sharpton towards the African American Community” By Carl Redding…If you recall Redding penned an “open letter” to Sharpton a couple of months back.

The recent lawsuit filed by media mogul Byron Allen against Comcast and the Reverend Al Sharpton, is telling for a number of critical reasons. Allen correctly asserts that Sharpton has done very little to use his visible platform as host of the MSNBC prime-time show Politics Nation, to advocate for African-Americans as a whole. Nor has Sharpton advocated for the hiring of other African-American hosts to join him on the popular network. This was the main criticism of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) in 2011, who publicly protested when it was announced that Sharpton had taken the job that a respected Black journalist should have gotten in the first place.

That’s a shame, because for years, Sharpton has argued that more Blacks should have access to the public airwaves. I believe that Allen’s lawsuit will finally expose Sharpton for the whole world to see.

As mainstream media continues to hail Sharpton’s rise to prominence as a metamorphosis or reinvention, it’s clear that he operates as a one-man show whose focus is squarely on Al Sharpton. I should know. I spent eight plus years as the chief of staff for National Action Network, the organization that I helped him to create in 1991. I traveled the country and the world with him and was a trusted advisor. In the beginning, I was a believer who was firmly committed to his cause and the cause for civil rights. But over time, it became obviously clear to me that Sharpton was no Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who used his public platform to advocate for a change in the laws.

Just name one case over the past two decades where Sharpton’s activism has brought about systemic change? In fact, on most of the police brutality cases in recent years where African Americans were senselessly gunned down by overzealous officers, Sharpton’s involvement has resulted in a grand jury refusing to indict the officers.

In the case of Akai Gurley in New York, where the family deliberately requested that Sharpton stay away, a grand jury swiftly indicted the police officer who shot the young, unarmed Black man. It appears that Sharpton’s absence brought about a victory for this grieving family. This example alone shows that among Black folks, Sharpton’s support, which was once strong in the 1980s and 1990s, has since diminished greatly.

Though his public persona has been strengthened by his access to President Obama and the White House, he has not properly leveraged this relationship to benefit Blacks as a whole. Can you imagine Dr. King gloating over visiting Lyndon B. Johnson in the White House? Or rejoicing over the opportunity to be invited to the White House to watch a Super bowl game? Absolutely not! King went to the White House with one focus in mind: to push Johnson to pass the Civil Rights Bill and the Voting Rights Act.

That’s why we march in Selma on the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday and it’s why Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay rightly produced Selma, which accurately chronicles King’s fight for racial equality. Sharpton, who claims to be in the King tradition, has been grossly ineffective in helping to groom a generation of activists who will come after he and the likes of Reverend Jesse Jackson, to continue the long and important fight for social justice.

With Obama in the White House and Eric Holder in the Justice Department, Sharpton has squandered the opportunity to push the White House and Congress to enact any meaningful legislation. In fact, I recall that during the 2008 election, his support for the President came during the last days of the campaign. Although I and a number of prominent politicians backed Obama, Sharpton refused to endorse him and suggested that his chances for winning the White House were slim to none. “Rev, I’m going with Obama,” I explicitly told Sharpton in 2008. His response was deeply frustrating. “You gotta be out of your fucking mind if you think Black folks and people in America are going to vote for a nigger with a Muslim name Barack Obama. You need to support Hillary Clinton, who is your sitting U.S. Senator from New York because you’ve got to work with her when she becomes President.”

Today, Sharpton claims to have been with Obama from the beginning, but if you check the record, his criticism of the former Illinois Senator was harsh and demeaning.

Black folks deserve more from those who claim to be public servants. At a time when the prison industrial system continues to incarcerate young Black men, it’s sad that neither Sharpton, Holder nor Obama have addressed this very issue. This crisis is very personal for me because my very own brother currently sits in a Utah prison cell, for up to five years, for a non-violent crime. Sadly, Obama uses Sharpton as his personal pit bull to silence any Black criticism directed his way.

With the lack of Black and Browns on television—as anchors, producers, writers and owners—Allen’s grievance is all the more important because he is speaking truth to power.

In a multi-billion dollar industry, Allen is shedding light on the viciousness of white supremacy, where Blacks are handpicked to remain silent for a few pieces of silver. For Sharpton, this has become a regular trend.

Last October, he sold out the Black community yet again when he published a book with Cash Money Records which promotes senseless violence and misogyny against African Americans in general, and Black women in particular.

At the time, I urged Sharpton to give back the blood money and apologize for his wrongdoing. He didn’t listen to me, but maybe he’s listening now that he has to answer to a lawsuit filed by a credible and respected Black entrepreneur.

What do you think? Is Redding’s gripe legit? Sound off here and feel free to share.
