LaLa Does Dinner with Friends+More News On Usher Losing His Wine Bar

YBF snitches caught LaLa coming out of the Velvet Margarita Cantina Restaurant in Hollywood last night: Cute peachy dress for her night out. And in celebrity recession news, Usher's wine bar The Grape closed last month as we all know. The Grape is a franchise and Ursh owned the unit in Atlanta. Now word has it the wine bar/bistro failed to re-open after the New Year and its liquor license has yet to be renewed. According to reports the parent company, Grape Enterprise Group, has also filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Womp. Congrats to Attorney General Eric Holder. He was officially confirmed and sworn in today as the nation's first black Attorney General. His mother Miriam (L), his wife Sharon (R) and his children were on hand to see him get sworn in. Loves it.

um. i live in LA/Hollywood. I don't know where LaLa is, but THAT is definitely not the Velvet Margarita. It's all black inside.... it doesn't look anything like that, anywhere in that restaurant. not blaming you, just saying that whoever sent the pics got the location wrong. But she does look cute. :)

Yawn... There is nothing

Yawn... There is nothing remotely cute about LaLa. She looks like a well dressed alley cat. And just because she likes to point out that she's not black but puerto rican, why don't yall talk about her weaves like u do er body else?? I mean in the second picture you can clearly see at the hair line the left and right side are 2 different texures and color. Note to LaLa: U R A BlACK PUERTO RICAN. Stop running around talking bout you not black like it's an affliction or some shit. It's gonna fuck u up when your man marry a real senorita mommi.

I can totaly relate to you

I can totaly relate to you Foley. Only you have a better advantage over me. I have a bachelor's degree, and was going to law school when I decided that I wasn't ready yet. So I went straight to work. I work for the State as a legislative assistant. The pay is ok, but not enough money. I want to go to law school but right now, I'm scared. there are a couple of factors in my way. 1. Loans and money. With the economy still tanked Im scared that there might not be any money for me to take out a loan. 2. going to school and work. I really dont want to lose this job (state jobs are pretty much guarenteed) plus, I still need incoming money to pay my bills. SO I am thinking that I might have to do the law school thing while I'm at work. What other choice do I have? I was also thinking of just getting my masters degree. I just dont know what to do, and going to law school is something that I really want to do

I was there too. You graduate from high school, go to college and earn your degree (in your case degrees)...you know, do all of the things society expects you to do. Then you go to job interviews, but get turned down because you don't have enough experience. So, you're stuck doing some bullsh!t work for some a$$hole who thinks he's God, and all of your old college friends are getting the great jobs, doing what they love. But you know what? I prayed, and two years after I graduated college I got the job I went to school for. It will happen for you Foley...you just have to pray and be patient. You'll get that dream job when the good Lord knows you're ready.

Shoot Foley I'm 27 about to be 28 years old in 18 days!! YAY!! LOL I have come to the realization that the career I've chosen isnt for me anymore. I'm about to start back over and go to school to get another Bachelor's. I'm not going to think I'm 28 I shouldnt make a change or my friends are doing things differently. No, everytime happens in time and on your own timetable as someone else said. Everything will definitely work out for you!!! And its cool to feel frustrated we all do but like you said God has something wonderful in store for you!!!

I've been there too many times. Sometimes I feel like for my age I haven't accomplished shit and I know so many other girls that I went to college w/ that are on their grind right now. Even bumped into my girl at the hair salon this past weekend and she soooo has her shit together. But instead of feeling bitter or pissy about it, I applaud them and use them for my own inspiration. I look at what I can do to better my situation and ways to make myself happy. My mom always says "what's for you will be for you." Your friends/associates all have their paths in life. Just like you have yours. Things will not come when you want it too but that doesn't mean it won't come on time. Stay focused but don't let their departure into what you believe is better deter you from foucsing on you. There is no stumbling blocks in your way, the path is clear.

Don't feel bad. If you're applying now there's no sense in you leaving your current job. If you get a new one, you'll be leaving prematurely to start law school anyway. Plus some law schools incorporate great incentives for companies to employ you after graduation by placing you in a paying job every other semester. One of my coworkers just told me about it. It sounds like you're just frustrated and believe me I know what it feels like to feel stagnant. But you're right on track.

It's so degrading sometimes..to be seen as someone who has no ambition (that's what they think of us here)..I want to get the fuck out of NYC..I wanna move somewhere else..and live and do things..I feel like I'm trapped. My friend just moved to PA and started on her career..another homie of mine moved to MD..has her own..I want to do the same..It just sucks sometimes..It really does..I feel like everything I do is in vain.[/quote] OMGGGG I know exactly how u feel! I'm 21...got my BS at 20, and I'm a flippin secretary! I'm applying to law schools for next fall too, but I feel exactly like you..just like a loser. I just wanna get out of my city and start fresh and make moves, but this down time is really trying and really makes you feel like there's just no light at the end of the tunnel. Everyone tells me oh you're young you got plenty of time to do stuff, but its hard when you're a really ambitious person and you just feel stuck. Hang in there tho. I've been going thru that since I graduated in May and couldn't find a job..I have a degree and I'm a secretary, but with this recession at least we have jobs. I just can't wait to get back in a classroom. I want so much more and I know you do too. It's tough but as long as we don't get complacent whatever we want is ours!

I understand what you're feeling. But dwell on what you have accomplished already. Would a person with no ambition have achieved two degrees? No. You can't put yourself on other people's time tables. Your blessing is coming, just keep believing in yourself, and filling out those applications. *cyberhug*
