Girlfriends Cancellation Confirmed+John Legend Hits The Studio+Nelly Gets An Ass For His Applebottom Anniversary
Feb 15 | by Natasha
Creator and Executive Producer of "Girlfriends" Mara Brock Akil has just released a statement regarding "Girlfriends" concluding its 8-year run:
"Although it's always difficult to say goodbye, I choose to focus my energy on the history that Girlfriends has made, the human stories that we told, the beautifully complex images that we projected and the blessings 172 episodes bestowed on us, both personally and professionally. I am immensely thankful to the amazingly talented cast, writers, directors, staff and crew for their endless dedication and hard work for eight seasons, to the network that always wanted us and the studio that always supported us, but mostly to the audience, especially African-American women, who took the time to tune into us every Monday night at nine to have a dialogue with us and who have been our partner in this journey. I am currently in talks with the studio and network on putting together a retrospective show which will honor and celebrate this landmark series, so please stay tuned."-- Mara Brock Akil, Creator/ Executive Producer of Girlfriends TheYBF.com was the first to break the sad news of the show ending this past Monday. You can also contact the network with your complaints. Sources involved with the crew of the show say that they are still trying to garner support for a season finale, but as of right now, Monday night's back to back shows are the last episodes that will ever air. Nelly celebrated the 5th anniversary of Apple Bottom jeans at TAO in vegas last night: It just wouldn't have been right with a regular sheet cake.

- Today's the day to show love...and fall in love. And it's also American Heart month. The American Heart Association has a goal to encourage women to “fall in love” with their heart. It’s the day to get pumped up about a checkup. This is the day to take a stand against the number one killer of women and teach them about the risks of heart disease. The YBF and the AHA are encouraging women to take the Go Red Heart CheckUp by visiting heart.org or call 1-888-AHA-2222.
