Hey Mikey,

I’m having some issues with my new girlfriend and I’m not sure what do about them. I have been trying to be friends with my ex girlfriend, and I even introduced her to my new girlfriend. Surprisingly, they hit it off and actually became good friends. I figured I had nothing to worry about until me and my new girl got into an argument. She brought up some stuff from my old relationship to back up fears she has about us being together. My ex claims that she hasn’t said anything to her incriminating about me, but I just don’t know because she has a history of meddling in other people’s business. I did also catch my new girlfriend reading my journal, maybe she found out from there. I doubt that my ex girlfriend would say something nasty about me, due to her deeply spiritual nature. What should I do to patch up things between me and my new girl? I do want us to work out.

She tries to tell him he wants nothing but time with him and that he would not extort money from him. Celine is hurt by his ignorance and fights for her son saying they both want what is “fair.” She further berates him for his mistreatment of her in the past and his lavish lifestyle and hints at having a great love for him.

Get Your First Look! Gal Gadot as “Wonder Woman” in “Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice!”

gal-gadot-768

Titans will clash and the Earth will shake when Batman and Superman face off in 2016’s “Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice (BVSDJ)!” Naturally, we expected to see lots of scenes with The Dark Knight and Man Of Steel fighting, but fans everywhere were thrilled to learn a few other superheroes would be making appearances in the film. Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Nightwing are confirmed to appear; but of these three heroes only Wonder Woman has garnered a great deal of controversy. Many fans did/do not feel Gal Gadot has the powerful, Amazonian physique as Wonder Woman and there was greater controversy surrounding her costume. Would she be portrayed realistically in armor and covered, or would she be in her traditionally skimpy attire. It has taken an eternity to get any visuals from “Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice!” Luckily, in honor of Comic-Con, Warner Bros. studios has finally released images of Gal Gadot as “Wonder Woman,” fully costumed!

Men & Women Can Be Friends: Why I Love My Girls

wpid-photogrid_1389636470174

Everyone knows your teenage years can be more trying than any other time in your life. The fluctuations in hormones, learning to maneuver an unfamiliar adult body, social awkwardness, and overwhelming peer pressure are nothing less than torturous. It’s during times like these that having the right group of friends can make or break you into the person you will become. There are few truths greater than the saying, “you are the company you keep…” Fortunately, I found myself in good company. The friends I surrounded myself with sought to be, and became, great people. Whatever challenges, insecurities, or doubts that kept them from making themselves better I witnessed them overcome and eradicate them. That group of friends just so happened to be all female–my girls.

Honestly, friendship is genderless. Men and women can be friends–best friends even. I was your stereotypical troubled teen; angry with the world, and even angrier with myself for not “measuring up.” It was me against the world, and with hubris, I believed I stood a chance.  Unsurprisingly, not only did I fall flat on my face–I fell on my face; through the floor, and plummeted towards Earth’s core–that proverbial “rock bottom” everyone eventually learns about. In my light – less gloom, swaddled in despair and loneliness; there I suddenly found myself in the care of five amazing women. Since then, more amazing women have become apart of my life. Truthfully and sincerely, being their friend has been the greatest decision of my life.

7/26/2014- “Prozac & Textbooks”

image

Mikey,

My life just got turned upside down. I recently found out my wife is bipolar. She was diagnosed this past week by our doctor.  Honestly, I thought she was just moody but now I see it for what it really is–a disease. For the most part, things are good between us but right now we definitely disagree about her working. She is a Kindergarten teacher and I don’t think she should continue working.  No Child should be subjected to someone with that type of condition. We already have a daughter and I’m keeping tabs on her personally. But the parents of those other kids won’t know she is ill. She feels like I’m being a tyrant, but I’m just trying to protect her and give her an easier life. What do you personally think? I’m good at admitting when I’m in the wrong, but this time in think I’m in the right.

-Temperance

***Temperance, I’d prefer your pen name be “Understanding” or “Empathetic.” Those two things are exactly what your wife needs at the moment.  Just because a person is bipolar does not mean she cannot work as a teacher. As long as she takes her medication and regularly sees a licensed psychiatrist for therapy she should be fine. FYI man people you are not aware of doctors, policemen, specialists, and even some Presidents have mental illnesses and are in no way deficient at their jobs. Don’t allow assumptions and misinformation keep you from fully understanding your wife’s condition or even worse prevent her from living her life!  By the way, keep an eye on your daughter and not because she is in danger from her mother,  but because the condition is hereditary and females are more prone to it. Be a great husband and responsible partner!

7/26/2014- “How To Deal (Thank You Frankie J)”

wpid-tabpobno.jpeg

Hey Mikey,

I have to move to New York for a big opportunity. The problem is my girl just got into a really good pre-med program at Emory. Being a doctor is her dream and I can’t ask her to come with me. I certainly don’t wanna stay though and not fulfill my dreams. What should I do because I feel like she’s the one and I don’t want to break up? Still, I know from past conversations neither of us are good at long distance anything.  Please help,  I’m really stressed and pressed by this.

-Dream Chaser

***Dream Chaser, this is one of those double edged situations where you’re hurt and benefitted at the same time.  Honestly, you and your girl have to do what is best for you at this time. If you feel like she’s the one,  and she truly is, then everything will work itself out no matter what life and distance may throw at you. Sorry but life’s not some old Burger King motto, you can’t “have it your way.” The fulfillment of any dream will come with some price. Pay it now and avoid regret later. After all regret is the one emotion you can’t do anything about…

A Febreeze Bottle!? Groupie Threatens to sue August Alsina for Sexual Injuries!

august1

Hit R & B singer, August Alsina, has had one helluva a year when it comes to bad press. First he is beefing with Trey Songz, then he gets Keshia Chante together on “106th & Park,” then just a few weeks ago he stopped his concert to find a hat someone in the audience had taken from him. Yeah, Mr. Alsina is going to have to work on his public relations ASAP. However, that may have to take a backseat to this latest accusation brought against him from a fan he allegedly hooked up with. He met the girl in Virginia after one of his shows after she paid for her own plane ticket to come and see him. He was “nice enough” to give her some backstage passes and tickets to his show, but when they got to the hotel room things got a lot more interesting.

Lucy_(2014_film)_poster

There is a new femme fatale in town and her name is Lucy! Scarlett Johansson is taking the action genre by storm once again as a femme fatale armed with nothing more than the full capacity of her brain. Lucy is an exhilarating film which combines the thrills of the action genre with psychological suspense, and even lessons in quantum physics. The story begins when Lucy is unwittingly forced to become an international drug mule hoping to capitalize on a mysterious blue substance initially believed to be an illegal substance. After being injured the chemical substance begins to leak into her body systems and super charges her brain. As the film progresses we watch the count as she gains more and more power as she is able to use higher pecentages of her brain power. What happens when she reaches 100% is nothing short of a spiritual experience.
