Meet the Woman Barack Obama Reportedly Proposed to Before Michelle?

Barack Obama clearly ended up with the right woman, but with news of his preMichelle marriage proposal making headlines, our curiosity about Sheila Miyoshi Jager was piqued.

In Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, Jager told Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer David J. Garrow that she had been seriously involved with the future president in the mid- to late ’80s and early ’90s. Not only did they move in together, but he proposed marriage — twice.

However, Obama’s political ambitions reportedly did them in; a mutual friend of the couple recounted that Obama explained that “the lines are very clearly drawn: If I am going out with a white woman, I have no standing here.” (For the record, Jager is of Dutch and Japanese ancestry.) Garrow wrote that Obama “felt trapped between the woman he loved and the destiny he knew was his,” implying that race factored into the Chicago politico’s decision to settle down with Michelle.

According to the book, Jager met Obama in the mid-’80s while doing community organizing in Chicago. Things turned romantic and they moved in together.

“In the winter of ’86, when we visited my parents, he asked me to marry him,” Jager, 53, recalled. She said that she turned down his proposal not for racial reasons but because her parents were concerned about Obama’s professional prospects and thought that Jager, then 23, was too young. (On the issue of race, a close family friend of Jager’s parents said that Obama came across to them like “a white, middle-class kid.”)

Bishop Eddie Long Responds to Reports, That He’s Dying of a Terminal Illness

eddie-long-550x445Bishop Eddie Long and New Birth Missionary Baptist Church responded to rampant reports that he is hospitalized with a terminal illness.

Rumor has it that Long is on his death bed at an undisclosed Atlanta hospital.

The mega church released a statement to the media on Tuesday, hours after supporters called on church members to pray for Long.

The statement reads:

“I am recovering from a health challenge that I trust God to deliver me from. It is unrelated to the eating for life diet consisting of mostly raw vegetables that I am continuing, as part of a holistic approach to good health”.

At this time my family and I are requesting that you respect our privacy.

I truly appreciate your prayers and support for me, my loved ones and my beloved New Birth Church Family.”

Rumors began swirling when the embattled preacher uploaded a video to his Facebook page that revealed his shocking weight loss.

In the video posted on Aug. 12, the charismatic preacher, who once tipped the scales at a robust 239 pounds, explained that he was taking medicine to help boost his immune system.

“I’m on the medicine that God gave you to feed your immune system to build you up,” he said. “You know what, if you really want to move through this world and have influence you gotta be spiritual and you have to walk by His commandments and you have to be healthy.”

He also said he was avoiding a “slave diet” of fast food.

Bill Clinton, Gossip, Hilary 2016, Hilary Clinton, Monica Lewinsky, What she said

Remember Monica Lewinsky?


Well….she’s back and running her mouth about her infamous affair with former president Bill Clinton.

“I, myself, deeply regret what happened between me and President Clinton. Let me say it again: I. Myself. Deeply. Regret. What. Happened.”

Lewinsky said  “It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress.” Guess she’s talking about the blue dress with President Clinton’s semen on it. Ugh!

Anywho…..After 10 years of virtual silence (“So silent, in fact,” she writes, “that the buzz in some circles has been that the Clinton’s must have paid me off; why else would I have refrained from speaking out? I can assure you that nothing could be further from the truth”),

Lewinsky, 40, says it is time to stop “tiptoeing around my past—and other people’s futures.” 

“I am determined to have a different ending to my story. I’ve decided, finally, to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past. (What this will cost me, I will soon find out.)”

Sounds like Monica knows that if Hillary Clinton is the Democratic front-runner in the 2016 Presidential election, her name along with her affair with the former president will be resurrected from the shallow grave of the past.

Lewinsky said her notoriety for years has hurt her ability to get the kind of job she wants. She said she interviewed for communications jobs but was often told she wasn’t “quite right” for the position, or was courted just to help companies get media attention.

Lewinsky revealed that she was “suicidal” during the height of the Clinton administration scandal, though never actually tried to kill herself. As for why she’s coming forward, she said she wants to “get involved with efforts on behalf of victims of online humiliation and harassment and to start speaking on this topic in public forums.”

You can read Lewinsky’s story in Vanity Fair.

TLC Told their story, Now she’s telling hers!!!

Pebbles on Wendy Williams

Blah, blah, blah!

This whole story is turning into a big circus of “she said-she said” and it’s becoming a bit petty and un-necessary.

Since TLC came out with their VH1 biopic “CrazySexyCool” their former manager, Perri “Pebbles” Reid have been making her rounds and telling her side of the story while defending her character and reputation against the way she has been portrayed in the movie.

“Pebbles” joined Huffington Post Live Wednesday, then the Wendy Williams show to tell her side of the story in the making of the iconic ’90s girl group TLC.

However in my opinion, Pebbles made it sound as if, if it weren’t for her; TLC wouldn’t even have the air they currently breathe.

This story has not only become messy and riddled with past hurt and emotions but Pebbles daughter has even joined the circus going as far as threatening TLC group member, Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas in defense of her mother.

Since the release of VH1’s biopic on TLC, “CrazySexyCool” in October, there’s been much debate over the accuracy of the film, and in particular, how it portrays Pebbles. Pebbles maintains that they’ve (TLC & VH1) defamed her character. Without providing much detail, a lot of which Pebbles states: are due to legal ramifications.

If this is the case, then why make your rounds on the media circuit giving bits and pieces of your cryptic details Pebbles? If TLC and VH1 are lying on you, then the TRUTH needs NO defense.

Among the numerous “lies” Pebbles addressed, is one that has been on the entertainment gossip circuit for years and that is, she “absolutely” believes Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas slept with her husband, record executive L.A. Reid.

While conceding that she refused to believe it “for years” because she loved her husband, she told host Marc Lamont Hill, “I have my reasons [now] to say absolutely… I just know it. It happened… I saw some stuff, it goes deeper than that.”

How deep? Of course she couldn’t or wouldn’t reveal.

Watch the interview clip below.
