Mini Fab: Faith Evans' New Book+Michelle Obama Covers Newsweek+Other Ish

Faith Evans is writing her memoirs and it's set to hit shelves August of this year. The rumored book cover is above. Here's the synopsis: KEEP THE FAITH is Faith Evan's first person account of life at ground zero of hip-hop's greatest generation. She'll share the truth about the love affair that changed her life, and the innuendo that rocked the hip-hop world to its core. From her passionate and tragically short-lived life with Biggie, Faith will finally lay the true story on the line. We'll get to see the good, the bad and the ugly side of P Diddy; nobody knew either quite as wellas Faith. I wonder if this will conveniently be pushed back to drop at the same time as the Notorious movie.

Barack's wife and First Lady hopeful Michelle Obama is covering the pages of the new issue of Newsweek. Fabulous. UPDATE: Apparently this issue is actually several weeks old.  But the pic is staying up. Dania Ramirez was spotted at the "Women At Risk" 10th Benefit Event in L.A. last night: She clearly borrowed her BFF Kelis' mom jean flare pants. They had the potential to be cute. But her fabness makes up for it. Actress Gina Ravera was there too.

And I know Congresswoman Maxine Waters told Dania to go put some damn clothes on. Loves it. And in non-YBF news, Us Weekly is confirming that Jessica Simpson's 23 year old lil sis Ashlee is pregnant. Her 28 year old fiance Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy (they conveniently just got engaged last week) is indeed the daddy. Congrats to them if true. The Randomness:

[quote comment="70183"][quote comment="70101"]I DO NOT LIKE MICHELLE "MAMA" OBAMA!!!! YEAH I SAID IT!! SHE IS ARROGANT! SHE THINKS SHE IS A MINI CONDOLEEZA RICE BUT CONDI WILL EAT HER ASS UP!! SHE IS NOT THE BLACK WOMAN I WOULD WANT TO BE SEEN AS THE PICTURE OF BLACK AMERICAN WOMEN!! SHE LOOKS LIKE A BOSSY, MEAN SPIRITED, ANGRY BLACK WOMAN WITH NAPPY FREAKIN HAIR!! SHE NEEDS TO LOOK SOFTER! SOMEONE IN HIS CAMPAIGN NEEDS TO GET HER A MAKEOVER!![/quote] I agree 150% She and Barack both come off as arrogant!![/quote] Seriously, I mean, are you for real with both of these comments. What does "her look" have to do with her capacity to be First Lady? When did standing by your man, raising your children to be respectable young women, and acting in an educated and dignified manner in public turn into she's arrogant. The problem that I have with both comments is that, you say she looks bossy, mean spirited-- least I go on, but all I see in this picture and in the host of other pictures of her is a woman smiling. You (both) are so caught up on image, but you aren't looking at this woman as an educated Princeton University and Harvard Law School graduate with many years of working in some area of the public and private sectors. What more can we ask for in a First Lady of our country? She can clearly give us, black women (and I’ll go so far to believe that both comments stem from black women) an understanding of what it means to be educated, present ourselves (women) in manner that respectable (in public and private), train our children to do the latter, and hold it down for our men. Please think about what message you are sending when you post a comment of this sort. When need strong, supportive black women on the covers of magazines and in the faces of Americans who somewhat believe black women (and men) only care about flashy jewelry, expensive clothing, and the best way to get over on people. Best of luck to you in your quest to understand the differences.

Well! Don't hold back on the Michelle Obama Rant, then! I personally love her swagger. She gives me "I'll cut a b**** behind my man!" that we need more of for a public face of black marriages and relationships. There's no mistaking that he has a good source of support and understanding, which makes him look like an even more stable candidate than Ms. Clinton and her commitment-come-lately husband. Get yo' man in chickety-check or tell him to check out, then we'll talk about your leadership capabilities. Why should I elect a woman who can't run her own house as candidate for the White House? Yeah, that might be overreaching, but I meant it. Faith, if you are reading this:less books, more songs. You KNOW I'mma buy your CD no matter what, but I gives a flying f*** about your personal life unless I can tap my toes to it. I've always regarded you so much more highly than these other females deluding themselves into thinking their drama is so intense and unique because they've dealt with men who cut records. Trust me, Fay, you have nothing to add. We've already READ it, whatever it is!

Why can't Ashley get coverage

Why can't Ashley get coverage on this site when Kim and her sisters, Amy Whinehouse and other non-black celebs have stories and pictures posted about them? I don't know why you all are always making Diddy out to be the curse. Biggie's mother is helping to producing the movie, Diddy has nothing to do with it. She is going to have him looking like an angel like she always does. None of them are going to tell the WHOLE truth. Faith is looking for a check. She is just like the rest living off of Biggie's name. Who really care about her life besides the mess with Big? Leave it in the past, especially considering how she never liked to talk about it before, so why do it now? I really wish folk would let Bigge and Pac rest in peace.
