Strong people need other strong people to rely on. This is a fact, and when it comes to the world of celebrities, athletes, and even royalty, this all remains true. Serena Williams and Meghan Markle, wife of Prince Harry, and the Duchess of Sussex, have apparently developed a close connection. The tennis star discussed her friendship with the newest member of the British Royal Family in a recent interview with Page Six.

Discussing her friendship with the Duchess of Sussex in an interview with Australia’s “The Project,” which took place three days after her US Open defeat, Williams, 36, said she and Markle, 37, stay in touch regularly.

“We were actually just texting each other this morning,” revealed the tennis ace.

“We have known each other for a long time, but we really are relying on each other a lot recently,” she added.

After reportedly meeting in 2010, Williams’ bond with Markle continued to grow over the years. In May, the athlete and husband Alexis Ohanian attended the former “Suits” star’s wedding to Prince Harry, a moment Williams believes will have a lasting impact.

“To have such a monumental moment in England, nonetheless of all the places, I felt like we were literally watching history,” Williams said of the royal nuptials. “I feel like in a few years we are going to look back at that moment and it’s going to be so historic. It’s going to be something that people never forget. The whole service was really wonderful, and most of all I just wanted to see my friend be happy. And I think that’s what happened.”

While Markle supported Williams at Wimbledon over the summer, the newest member of the royal family missed her friend’s outburst on the court at the Open earlier this month.

Williams exploded on chair umpire Carlos Ramos after being penalized for getting coached on the side by her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou. She believes she was unfairly treated because of her sex.

“I just don’t understand … if you’re a female, you should be able to do even half of what a guy can do,” she said.

We really love the friendship and sisterhood between these two. Let this be encouragement to reach out to your “strong friend” today. I am sure they would appreciate the love right now!

They say the setbacks in life are signs you are about to be set up for something amazing and transforming! That defiitely seems to be the case with Deshawn Snow’s transformation from laid back housewife to a certified babe (and MILF)!

As you recall, Deshawn is one of the original housewives of the Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta, but lasted only the first season allegedly because she was “too human” for the show. Shortly thereafter, she and her then husband and former NBA player, Eric Snow, filed for divorce and her life was never the same. Deshawn is now back and from these pictures we can tell she is ready to slay whatever obstacles are standing her way.

Check out a few photos of her from Season 1 of RHOA in 2008 and now!

As co-owners, they’re in good company — rapper Macklemore and his wife, Tricia Davis, former Microsoft executive Terry Myerson and his wife, Katie Myerson, and Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and his wife, Anu Nadella, are also members of the ownership group.

“Seattle means so much to me and Ciara. We’re fired up about being part of the Sounders for a long, long time, having ownership in the Sounders and continuing to build that winning culture,” Russell Wilson said in a statement. “When I got here in 2012, Seattle was a place that I felt I could call home forever. And obviously because of the Seahawks, and now because of the Sounders, it makes that really come to life. We’re really excited about building that winning culture. This city is a special place.”

Ciara issued a statement of her own, saying, “This is not only a special moment for Russ and I, but for our kids as well. When we walked into the building and our kids were running around with their names on their little jerseys, it meant a lot for so many reasons. It’s an honor to join the Sounders team and have the unique opportunity to represent female ownership within major league sports.”

We are so happy for Ciara and Russell! They are both successful, have a beautiful family, and seem to be winning on so many levels. We love seeing Black Love perforate. What do you guys think of this big news for The Wilsons? Sound off in the comments’ section below!

Amara La Negra (@AmaraLaNegraALN) Praises Beyonce for “Brown Skin Girls,” Cites Blue Ivy As Justification

Beyonce definitely worked wonders on the original tracks she produced for Disney’s 2019 The Lion King remake soundtrack. One of the runaway hit singles from this album is none other than Brown Skin Girls,  a track that celebrates melanin and women of color with darker skin tones. Many felt as though Beyonce, being a lighter skinned woman, should not be able to sing or speak on the magnification or beauty of darker skinned women of color since she knew nothing of their experiences of colorism. Naturally, fans and The BeyHive , have come to her defense, and in that number includes Love & Hip-Hop Miami’s Amara La Negra.

In a recent interview with Kontrol Magazine, Amara states Beyonce as the mother of Blue Ivy, a brown skinned Black girl, being reason enough for her to create a song celebrating them and denouncing colorism. “I feel like people are reading too much into what she [Beyonce] is saying in the song. It’s very empowering and loving. Also, her own daughter is brown skinned, why wouldn’t she want to create something uplifting her. Let’s also not forget her father is dark skinned, she may have other darker skinned family members, and so is her band mate and best friend, Kelly [Rowland]. People just don’t know. Instead of continuously fighting about this issue we should be embracing it, the message of the song, and embracing one another…”

We definitely agree with Amara La Negra on this issue. She has fought against colorism since she was first introduced to the world via reality television and believes in the beauty of all people of color no matter their shade. Beyonce created a beautiful, uplifting some for a group of women who all too often are marginalized. You can catch her full interview with Kontrol Magazine coming soon! Thanks for speaking out Amara!
