Lifetime never fails to deliver us some pretty decent movies. We have also loved their biopics as of late, namely Michel’le’s and Toni Braxton’s. Now the network is giving us some romance in a new movie Love At The 10th Date starring actresses Meagan Good and Kellee Stewart, and singers/actresses, Kelly Rowland and Keri Hilson! The film also stars Brandon T. Jackson and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman,  and features an appearance from rapper Chief Keef! Any film with a cast like this has to be worth watching!

“Love By The 10th Date” follows Gabby (Good), Nell (Stewart), Billie (Hilson) and Margot (Rowland) who balance their dating adventures alongside their career ambitions at an upscale digital magazine in Los Angeles, under the watchful eye of their editor, Maureen (Deeley). Inspired by the site’s relationship advice column to find the one, Gabby and Nell embark on their own journeys towards the elusive 10th date, the dating world’s Holy Grail when it comes to commitment. Meanwhile, Billie finds herself at a major crossroads in her marriage and Margot unsuccessfully tries to fight her growing attraction to a famously controversial reggae musician she is assigned to interview. As the ladies navigate the ups and downs of modern dating, romance, exes and friendships, they learn what they really want out of life and love. Jackson stars as Dante, a creative director at the site and Bowyer-Chapman is Freddy, Nell’s bisexual boyfriend.

Check out the trailer below!

We will definitely be watching this! We just wonder is that true? Is the 10th Date really “The Holy Grail” relationship commitments? If so that would explain why some of us are still single and cannot get past second dates. We digress…Nevertheless this looks amazing. We will be tuning in on Saturday, January 28th at 8 PM EST. Check your local listing for channels and showtimes! Happy viewing!

11/6/2016- [VIDEO] A #PSA For All My Riders, Baby Mamas, & Down Ass Chicks!”

Hey Mikey,

I consider myself a pretty loyal girlfriend. I cook, clean, pay bills, and another four letter word I’d rather not type. My boyfriend is a really talented music producer and recently he has caught the attention of a number of Atlanta artists including T.I., Future, Lil Yachty, and Ludacris. I definitely have not minded supporting him as he produced, but now he is talking about becoming an artist and just told me today a record label is interested in him. Now I have a problem…I don’t want him becoming one! His profile will be elevated and labels never want their artists in relationships. I gave four years of my life up for him! How do I tell him I’m not happy about this?

-Don’t Want Him Brand New

***Don’t Want Him Brand New, I love your pen name! I am definitely a Jazmine Sullivan fan! Now, getting to the task at hand; let this serve as a PSA to all Riders, Down Ass Chicks, and Baby Mamas. Love is selfless, and this is not about you! Your man has an amazing opportunity and he should definitely explore it. I agree you two should talk, but not about your happiness with the situation, but your concerns. Be completely open and honest with him. There is no reason your relationship cannot survive this and elevate to your desired level of contentment. Don’t you start acting “Brand New!” After all the label can’t break you up, that’s all on the two of you.

“He’s Not My Type” – Why you SHOULD Date A Person Who’s Not Your ‘Type’

We all have this little list of standards and qualities of what it is we want in a mate and ideally, that’s what makes up our “type”. For some women, it can be a man who’s tall, dark and muscular and for some guys, it can be a woman with fire engine red hair, a nice set of breasts and a J.Lo booty to round it all out. And that’s good. By all means, you have a right to like whatever it is that you like but have you ever thought that after several bad dates and three failed relationships maybe your type is just a bit… wrong? Don’t trip, we all do. We get so wrapped up in finding someone who fits the bill that we treat the dating process more like an auction instead of the interview of a lifetime. Opposites truly do attract and today, I’m going to tell you why it’s okay to date someone who is not your type.

After a while of dating only people who fit your ‘type’ criteria, the dating game gets eerily familiar. You wind up being attracted to some of the same television shows, musics, foods and things of that nature but dating someone who’s not your type means you can broaden your outlook on a host of different things. Dating someone who doesn’t fit the bill means you will get to learn brand new cultures, hobbies, and will probably discover a whole new approach to life, too! That thai place you wanted to go to dinner at but couldn’t because your ex was really into Italian food, just so happens to be your new interests favorite spot!

8/11/2016- “Closure With Zaddy”

Hey Mikey,

Soooo I’ve tried to be modern about my break up with my ex. We have even hung out and communicated regularly despite him moving on, getting engaged, and now getting married. I even attended the wedding and befriended his new wife. I was hoping his marriage would be the motivation for me to move on, but I still find myself in love with him and wanting him. I feel like he and I should have a conversation when he comes back from his honeymoon just to kind of clarify where we stand and how we should move forward. What do you think?

-Missing Zaddy

***Missing Zaddy, there is no moving forward for you. The closure you are looking for came with your break up and him moving on with his life. There is nothing modern about continuing a relationship with an ex you still have feelings for, instead it is rather foolish. My dear, if it was meant to be it would have worked out between you and him. Let his wedding and honeymoon be the swan song what remains of your relationship. The future awaits–grab on to it!

#Heartwarming–Lil Durk (@lildurk) Speaks on Relationship with Dej Loaf (@DejLoaf)!

Every other month, we are fed rumors of a possible celebrity couple. Usually, the rumored couple will deny, or they’ll just give the typical “We’re just friends.”

There are also occasions when celebs can admit that they’re together, but it’s usually when the two involved are attempting to garner some attention to fuel their careers. And maybe that’s the case with rappers Dej Loaf and Lil Dirk.

The Detroit and Chicago rapper further fueled dating rumors late 2015 when they kissed on stage during a 106 & Party taping in December, and again when Durk released “My Beyonce” featuring Dej Loaf.

Into The Lady Pond! Khloe Kardashian (@khloekardashian) Is Now Open to Dating Women?

Another day, and another Kardashian is in the news! This time it is our favorite Kardashian, Khloe. Apparently, the reality television star is ready to try something new with her love life.  As we all know she has been through a lot over the last few years when it comes to men, namely, her soon to be ex-husband, Lamar Odom and French Montana. A source close to the “Kardashian Kamp” states she has confided in her friends she is now open to dating women!

“Khloe’s so disillusioned with men right now — it’s like finding one who’s fun but faithful is impossible,” an insider revealed. “She’s still on the hunt for a new guy, but she’s decided she wants to have a bit of fun and explore her sexuality in the meantime.”

As Radar reported, Kardashian had her first taste of life on the Sapphic side when she shared a drunken kiss with her best friend Malika.

Despite her limited same-sex experience, Kardashian, 32, is hanging out more with some of her closest gay friends and their social circles and willing to “see what happens,” said the insider.

“Khloe couldn’t care less what anyone thinks,” said the insider. “She wants to find happiness, whatever that may mean.”

We are not sure how true this is, but all we can say is we wish Khloe the best. Love is love, and if a woman can give her the love and peace she needs then so be it!
