Amanda Clayton Alex hey mikey atl if loving you is wrong

If Loving You Is Wrong begins at the precinct with Lushion bringing his superior’s findings about Ben into question, revealing there may be a video tape of what really happens. Lushion backs down when the captain questions his claims. Edward calls him to antagonize him, warning him not to ask questions about the shooting and thanks him for saving his life. At the hospital, the doctor finds Alex resting peacefully with Kelly watching over her. The doctor thanks her for helping her and notices her vitals have stabilized. Esperanza and Natalie stop by briefly, admiring how she got Alex to see the baby and calm down. Kelly notices Alex is moving in her sleep and wonders what she is dreaming about. Alex dreams about how she and Brad met Marcie and Randal. After the couples meet the latter help Alex and Brad unpack and move in. The girls bond over wanting children and the guys bond over sports. Brad asks Randal to look out for his wife while he is working. The two couples hang out more, with Alex and Brad admiring her romantic and spontaneous Marcie and Randal are. The couples switch partners while dancing, with Randal and Ale enjoying one another’s company.


When Alex and Brad returns home they make love, but are done minutes later. Alex is left unsatisfied. Marcie and Randal, however, are still going hours later. Alex sees them from her window and stares. Randal stops and closes the curtains when he sees her. They are sure she is shocked. The next morning Randal apologizes to her for the scene the night before. She dismisses his apology and tells him everything is fine. She tells him about her past as a small town girl as they flirt more. That night, she watches them have sex again. Months later, the couples return from dinner together and wish each other a good night. Randal palms Alex’s butt as he hugs her goodnight. More months pass and Alex becomes pregnant, while Marcie looks on jealously.

Gotham begins with some less than ethical interrogation methods and Jim and Harvey take to the streets, determined to find out more information on Jerome and the Arkham inmates. Whoever does not answer them with the right information is thrown out of a window to a pile of trash below. Elsewhere, Barbara and Tabitha bask in the afterglow of lovemaking. They are interrupted by Galavan, who commends their romance and declares he is going to help Barbara destroy Jim. Back at the precinct, Jim takes charge and directs them towards leads. He demands none of the officers ever forget the massacre that has occurred and bring her murderer to justice. Lee tries to comfort him, but he resists. She tries to invite him for a night out, but he still refuses until she tells him a magician will be there. They laugh together and he kisses her. They go after, the blind fortune teller, Jerome’s father, but Tabitha and Jerome beat them there!


Jerome bind and gags his father, berating him for not being a good father and allowing his mother to mistreat him. He explains his elaborate plan to kill him and using braille and knockout gas to implicate him in the prison break and escape. His father tells him he will be a curse upon Gotham with a legacy of death and madness. Just as Jerome prepares to kill him Harvey and Jim arrive to question him. They break down the door when they hear a noise. Jerome stabs his father through the eye, killing him and releasing knock out gas that affects Jim and Harvey. Jim tries to fight him off, but is taken out by Tabitha and Jerome. Elsewhere, Bruce and Alfred attend the gala at the children’s hospital. There they make Lee’s acquaintance and Bruce bumps into Selina. He tries to talk to her, but she dismisses him and continues to case out the crowd looking for her next victim. Galavan and Barbara begin the next phase of his plan, while Jerome and Tabitha take the scheduled magician’s place with the real magician held hostage in a trunk!

And The Backlash Begins…The Kardashians’ Cosmopolitan (@Cosmopolitan) Causes Major Controversy!

the kardashians cosmopolitan magazine hey mikey atl

Last night the world of social media was teeming with awe, shock, and later disgust as Kris Jenner, surrounded by all of her daughters; Kourtney, Kim, Khloe,Kendall, and Kylie graced the latest cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine. The cover, entitled “The First Family” has left a sour taste with many, especially in Black Twitter. Those three words are usually reserved the actual First Family of The United States of America, The Obamas. Comments concerning the cover went from a series of heart-eyed smileys to a photo shopped meme knocking Cosmopolitan, while supporting The Obamas with a family portrait that included their dogs.

The meme is nothing short of hilarious and points out the latest, in a long line, of disrespectful acts towards The Obamas. Like it or not, he is the current President and his family is the First Family. The Kardashian-Jenner Clan may be the First Family of Reality Television (and foolishness), but they never deserve to be on the cover of any publication with such a revered and respected title. Maybe people are reading too much into this, and just maybe people realize there have to be boundaries. By the way, does anyone know why Caitlin Jenner was not included. It would have made for an interesting cover and statement!

The Celebrity DJ of Your Dreams–You’re Gonna Love Josh Acoff (@Dj_Acoff)!


Whoever said fame favors the fortunate has never traveled to the great state of Alabama, or known what it means to come from nothing to be a great something. If that is the case, then you also know they never met the amazingly talented DJ Josh Acoff. Yep, DJ Acoff is man of many titles– a rising star, aspiring actor, one of the most popular young DJs in the industry, and an all-around great guy. Josh has a story tell, dared to be better than his circumstances, and now stands on the cusp of a future so bright it might as well be highlighted with a neon marker! “I know who I am, who I am meant to be, and where I’m going. You can’t let your past dictate how far your future is gonna go…”

As aforementioned, DJ Acoff rose from less than humble beginnings in Alabama, in the city of Birmingham. There, he was one twenty-one children to a big time drug dealer in the area. “I’m the fifth oldest out everyone…my father was killed when I was young so I didn’t know him too well…but I know of all my siblings…” Acoff was raised by his single mother alongside two of his siblings. He was determined very early on not to follow in his father’s footsteps and be someone others could admire and look up to. “He’s my father and I love him, but that is not what I wanted for my life…a lot of young men would try to emulate that, but that type of life just has you locked up or dead…” DJ Acoff has always used his natural talents to move forward in life. It was his natural athleticism and affinity for football that earned him a full scholarship to Alabama State, and later, Clark Atlanta University.

Hugh Jackman (@RealHughJackman) Opens Up About Feeling “Powerless” As A Child

hugh jackman hey mikey atl

Wolverine star Hugh Jackman reveal that he was abandoned by his mother at a young age and the actor also admits that it has had a drastic effect on his life. He said: “From the moment mom left, I was a fearful kid who felt powerless. I was the youngest. I used to be the first one home and I was frightened to go inside. I couldn’t go into the house on my own. I’d wait outside, scared, frustrated. Growing up I was scared of the dark. I was scared of heights.

“It limited me. I hated it, and that contributed to my anger. Isn’t most anger fear-based, ultimately? It emanates from some kind of powerlessness. I was really feeling that.”

And that is not the only hardship the 46-year-old actor has had to endure during his life after him and wife Deborra-Lee Furness struggled to have children of their own. Hugh – who adopted son Oscar (age fifteen) and daughter Eva (who is ten) – told Parade magazine: “It was a hard time. We went through IVF. Deb doesn’t give up. At a certain point I was like, ‘Deb, let’s adopt now.

“In Australia at the time, you couldn’t do IVF and adopt simultaneously. So we adopted, and it has been the greatest, most fulfilling and challenging role of our lives.”
