Domestic violence is never a laughing matter, and it definitely is not when it involves a celebrity couple. Apparently Tisha Campbell-Martin is accusing her now estranged husband, Duane Martin of abusing her for years stating, “I can no longer live in fear of retaliation…” She states she is only now coming forward with these accusations because she wanted to protect Duane and their children.

Tisha filed on January 24 for a domestic violence restraining order against Martin, claiming he has been physically abusive in their relationship for years.

The actress says the most recent abuse happened this past December, when he allegedly “grabbed me by my arm to try to get me in the bedroom,” after claiming their son was sick.

In an affidavit, Tisha says the physical abuse began months after their wedding in 1996, claiming, “I had been emotionally, mentally and physically abused. I kept things hidden from my family his family our friends and the public, save a few very close friends and people who may have witnessed, over the past two decades, filing it away in the back of my mind to protect my family, the community and the pubIic’s persona of my spouse.”

Tisha says she always believed she was a “strong woman” by keeping the alleged abuse under wraps, but now admits she’s “scared,” and says she owes it to her children to speak the truth about her relationship.

The former “Martin” star says, “I can no longer live in fear of retaliation,” adding, “The need to press criminal charges for his acts overshadows the embarrassment of making his crimes against me public through this report.”

Tisha filed a police report on January 12 with LAPD, and claimed Martin attacked her after arguing over money in the past. Tisha told police she “had trouble breathing,” when Martin allegedly pinned her against a wall and put an arm on her throat. It’s unclear when the alleged assault occurred, but it does not appear Duane has been arrested over the allegations.

In another alleged incident, Tisha claims Duane scrutinized her weight by claiming she couldn’t get acting roles. “She’s not Sherri Shepard or Kim Whitley,” Duane allegedly said, adding, “those girls know how to book for fat girls. Tisha can’t compete with them for those roles because she was never a big girl.”

Tisha says the fight over her weight spiraled out of control and Duane eventually punched her “with a closed fist” in the chest.

Wow! We knew Tisha and Duane had issues in their marriage, but assumed it was based on finances and NEVER domestic violence! We are glad they are splitting. If you, or anyone you know is a victim of domestic violence please GET HELP! 1−800−799−7233

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!
