Venus Williams & Brandy Out & About+The Kodjoes Discuss Sophie's Spina Bifida

  Tennis star Venus Williams is back in the US following her Olympic gold medal success with her sister Serena in Beijing: She was spotted leaving a medical center in Beverly Hills yesterday. No makeup and extra laid back.  Every gold medalist deserves one of those days.      And Brandy was spotted shopping for a doll yesterday at the American Girl Place in New York City.  I'm sure it's a gift for her daughter Sy'rai.

  The Kodjoes discussing their daughter Sophie's Spina Bifida when you read the rest...     Boris and Nicole Kodjoe are starting to speak up about their daughter Sophie's Spina Bifida.  They are trying to raise money for test treatments that couple possibly help several children diagnosed with this issue.  Here's a snippet of their statement about Sophie:   We are writing this letter to share with you a most personal issue and ask for your help. As some of you already heard, our little Sophie was diagnosed at birth with Spina Bifida, the most common birth defect in the US, affecting the brain and/or spine in an average of eight babies a day. Degrees of severity vary from quadriplegic children with major brain damage and spinal injuries to cases of neurogenic bladders or even lesser issues. We were blessed with a miracle child and spared of the more severe symptoms, but Sophie’s spastic bladder still forces us to catheterize her every three hours, day and night, to avoid pressure build up in her bladder and urine backflow into her kidneys. But frequent catheterization causes urinary tract infections, which are then battled with strong antibiotics, which in turn attack stomach flora and cellular balance, cause bowel issues, and that leads to more infections. The couple goes on to speak about possible treatments that will need funding, and they are trying to raise almost 2 million to get test treatment for over 10 children with Spina Bifida.  Check out the rest of their story here.

[quote comment="180405"]To all the desperate women out there: Stop it. You're making it hard for the rest of us. I'm tired of encountering men who seem to believe all they have to do is look good, have a degree and smile to have my panties fall off. I'm tired of the men who's first question seems to be: Can you to cook? To which I reply: Yes. I can. But I won't be doing it for you. I'm tired of the men who call at all times of night, asking to come over and "chill" as I let them know that it's too late to be at my crib and what ever "chilling" they want to do can be done between the hours of 9 and 10. Or how about the men who don't have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of but seem to think it's their right in life to have a "dime." And that my extra fly ass should be grateful that they even said hello to me and can't possibly understand why I'm not leaping up and down at the prospect of being with them. And please, don't get me started on all of the men who tell me that I want them as much as they want me. Right. So all those texts and phone calls I didn't return didn't send the message that I wasn't interested , huh? The reason why so many men today think that they have to do so little to attract quality chicks, is because they don't. Too many women out here will do whatever it takes to find, get and keep a man, turning the whole natural order of the dating world on its head. Women are doing the chasing and men are doing the choosing. And apparently I'm the only one who seems to think something is wrong with that. I'm old school. I may only be 28, but I was raised to believe that it's a man's job to court me. He does the chasing. I do the choosing. Simple. And effective. But now, because of the very real demographic differences among a certain section of the Black community, women are doing whatever it takes to get a man. And I do mean whatever. If that means cooking, cleaning, sexing, cow towing, begging, pleading, giving money to, letting live with, catching a case for (no lie) or just being a 21st century rendition of a Geisha with none of the perks who completely takes Destiny's Child "Cater to You" to heart with little to no reciprocation, then so be it. If that's what it takes to get and keep a man, then that is what too many women are willing do. I'm sorry, but I just can't get down like that. As I have had to tell one too many men: I am not your wife. And even if I was, I wouldn't be bending over backward to cater to you. If you want 150% from me, then you better be giving me 150% in return. But don't expect to operate on 10% and expect me to give you 150. If you're operating on 10%, I'm operating on 20 and that's just because I'm nice--sometimes. To put simply: I give as good as I get. You wanna wife, you need to put a ring on my finger. I don't play wife, unless you're playing husband. A sentiment I wish more young women would take to heart.[/quote] HELL YEAH!

Women do need to leave as

Women do need to leave as soon as a flag goes up. And stop hooking up with men that your not equally yoked with. Some know it's gonna turn into chicken, but they stay and play themselves. I wish society would stop making women out to be the victim. Men are out as soon as they feel uncomfortable. Well the majority of them do. Us women should learn to do the SAME thang! On the flip side, a lot of females refuse to do any soul searching, so they find themselves always in the same set up. And always crying bloody mary. If females searched within themselves, they would avoid alot of hurt. It's ok to go without a man until you find yourself. But some think the way to find themself is to go out and hook up with another "friend". With all that said, this type of behaviors will never stop. I'm glad I'm older and I know myself. There will always be issues, but some things are just uncalled for.

Yeah some do take healthy children for granted by not taking care of them period. I feel the Kodjoe's pain. I now how it feels to have a child in need and it's not an easy job at all. That's why I blast the shit out of dead beat parents. Dead beat parents come in all shapes and sizes.

Why do females bitch and

Why do females bitch and complain about men-I dont get it. The minute you know something is not right LEAVE. Its that simple. Besides dont blame the man if he was able to play you blame yourself for being weak, or as some would say "but I love him!" dummy.

I feel you because it seems that black men want you to grow a new spine and do some amazing things for them when half of the time they aint doing nothing in return.I had two no good boyfriends before I met my husband, and I went through almost everything you mentioned.The thing that gets to me is the ones that have a three darte ruke and want to go to bed with you. the feed hasn't even settled on your stomach! insane! Men get away with being extra lazy in relationships because the chicken heads allow them to. When I set up some rules I was able to weed out all of the wack playa's and find me a real man. I'm married now, and I found my 150% percent man! marriage aint easy, but I would say it is worth it!

I was wondering why she looked so mad in the picture. Hope she gets better.... Boris and Nicole Kodjoe are a cute couple, I hope their marriage last. I like Venus's natural hair, she just needs to learn how to make it look smoother. It's too frizzy. I am not a fan of Brandi's look since she went vegetarian. Not a cute look on her

The brown suga blog thing is

The brown suga blog thing is like an email that gets forwarded (spammed) over and over again. I think it was from "her" blog and not written for this post but to get people to go to her blog...like someone else said...an advertisement. Anyway... I think brandy looks great! I think Serena looks good too(remeber she's an athlete, not an actor/singer/model). Don't think everyone needs to be glam/made up all the time. I send prayers to the Kodjoe fam. Sad to hear but still a beautiful family.

@southernbella I don't think

@southernbella I don't think Brownsugarblog has a shitty attitude, but I do think she is fed up with not being approached like a lady. I know I hold myself as a lady and a lot of men laugh in my face when I tell them things like they can come over after a certain time, or I don't kiss on the first date, or that even though we've gone out on a few dates I think it is too soon to begin a sexual relationship. And that what did you cook for dinner bs is sickning!! I will tell the truth I would cater to men a lot more than I do now, and the result of leaving their asses out in the cold, I have definately dealt with a better class of man. Men want to chase, but if they are not given any, they are satisfied to see how much they can get out of you. So agree ladies give these men a chase, I promise you will love the results

I'm tired of encountering men who seem to believe all they have to do is look good, have a degree and smile to have my panties fall off. I'm tired of the men who's first question seems to be: Can you to cook? To which I reply: Yes. I can. But I won't be doing it for you. I'm tired of the men who call at all times of night, asking to come over and "chill" as I let them know that it's too late to be at my crib and what ever "chilling" they want to do can be done between the hours of 9 and 10. Or how about the men who don't have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out of but seem to think it's their right in life to have a "dime." And that my extra fly ass should be grateful that they even said hello to me and can't possibly understand why I'm not leaping up and down at the prospect of being with them. And please, don't get me started on all of the men who tell me that I want them as much as they want me. Right. So all those texts and phone calls I didn't return didn't send the message that I wasn't interested , huh? The reason why so many men today think that they have to do so little to attract quality chicks, is because they don't. Too many women out here will do whatever it takes to find, get and keep a man, turning the whole natural order of the dating world on its head. Women are doing the chasing and men are doing the choosing. And apparently I'm the only one who seems to think something is wrong with that. I'm old school. I may only be 28, but I was raised to believe that it's a man's job to court me. He does the chasing. I do the choosing. Simple. And effective. But now, because of the very real demographic differences among a certain section of the Black community, women are doing whatever it takes to get a man. And I do mean whatever. If that means cooking, cleaning, sexing, cow towing, begging, pleading, giving money to, letting live with, catching a case for (no lie) or just being a 21st century rendition of a Geisha with none of the perks who completely takes Destiny's Child "Cater to You" to heart with little to no reciprocation, then so be it. If that's what it takes to get and keep a man, then that is what too many women are willing do. I'm sorry, but I just can't get down like that. As I have had to tell one too many men: I am not your wife. And even if I was, I wouldn't be bending over backward to cater to you. If you want 150% from me, then you better be giving me 150% in return. But don't expect to operate on 10% and expect me to give you 150. If you're operating on 10%, I'm operating on 20 and that's just because I'm nice--sometimes. To put simply: I give as good as I get. You wanna wife, you need to put a ring on my finger. I don't play wife, unless you're playing husband. A sentiment I wish more young women would take to heart.[/quote] I totally agree with what you are saying. I refuse to bend over backwards to get a man or to keep one, therefore if they cannot accept me for who I am, than I will have to be without. I was looking at a documentary where a black woman knew her husband was sleeping with men, but still continued to date him because she was desperate. I mean has it come to a point where we are willing to put our lives on the line for the sake of "having a man"?

Brown Sugar blog, If you're not interested in these guys, then stop giving them your number! And if you're all that, then your gonna find your match. It may not be when you want, but he'll come along. And don't be so rude to guys that aren't on your level...a woman likes to know she's wanted...doesn't she?
