There is nothing good about suicide. The loss of life, even when self-inflicted should be mourned and at the very least make us all pause to think of the well being of others for a change. Kate Spade’s suicide earlier this week shocked millions worldwide. The fashionista and designer was loved and adored by many, but was clearly battling some demons of her own. That is exactly what her husband, Andy Spade, had to say in an official statement released after her demise.

Kate was the most beautiful woman in the world. She was the kindest person I’ve ever known and my best friend for 35 years. My daughter and I are devastated by her loss, and can’t even begin to fathom life without her. We are deeply heartbroken and miss her already.

Kate suffered from depression and anxiety for many years. She was actively seeking help and working closely with her doctors to treat her disease, one that takes far too many lives. We were in touch with her the night before and she sounded happy. There was no indication and no warning that she would do this. It was a complete shock. And it clearly wasn’t her. There were personal demons she was battling.

For the past 10 months we had been living separately, but within a few blocks of each other. Bea was living with both of us and we saw each other or spoke every day. We ate many meals together as a family and continued to vacation together as a family. Our daughter was our priority. We were not legally separated, and never even discussed divorce. We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how. We were together for 35 years. We loved each other very much and simply needed a break.

This is the truth. Anything else that is out there right now is false. She was actively seeking help for depression and anxiety over the last 5 years, seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking medication for both depression and anxiety. There was no substance or alcohol abuse. There were no business problems. We loved creating our businesses together. We were co-parenting our beautiful daughter. I have yet to see any note left behind and am appalled that a private message to my daughter has been so heartlessly shared with the media.

My main concern is Bea and protecting her privacy as she deals with the unimaginable grief of losing her mother. Kate loved Bea so very much.

Our heart goes out to Kate Spade’s family in their time of grief. We would like to reiterate that there is help for anyone feeling suicidal. If you or anyone you know is feeling this way please notify someone immediately and contact the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. Be blessed.

“Pose” Star Indya Moore Claps Back at Claudia Jordan Over Perceived Transphobic Comments!

It is never a good look or a good time when two ladies we love so much are at odds on such a controversial topic. Apparently, Pose star and trans activist, Indya Moore, is displeased with Claudia Jordan’s recent comments and questions concerning transgender people. In fact, she has outright declared Claudia’s comments and inquiries to be transphobic and off center to more important issues in the trans community; like the high number of murders of transgender women of color.

It is never a good look or a good time when two ladies we love so much are at odds on such a controversial topic.

The tift began when Claudia tweeted the following after her interview with actor Malik Yoba, who recently revealed he is attracted to transgender women and came onto her radio show, The All New Morning Rush on 105.7 Dallas, for an interview and to discuss the forthcoming Visibility March set for September 28th in Washington, D.C.

As you can see above Indya, as a transgender woman,  was offended. When it comes to interaction with transgender people it is considered rude and offensive to bring up their genitalia as it relates to their gender identity. This can be especially offensive coming from a cisgender (denoting or relating to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender corresponds with their birth sex) person.

Indya’s retort including the murder of so many transgender women of color, the most recent being a seventeen year old girl who found tied up and burned to death in a car is heart wrenching and timely. Claudia may have been genuinely asking from a place of trying to understand, but with a topic that sensitive and still taboo, she should have done some research surrounding the etiquette needed when discussing this subject matter. Indya recently wore earrings with portraits of all the aforementioned murdered transgender women this year. We hope these two can come to a place of understanding over this issue. They are both such fun, beautiful, and talented women!

You can catch Claudia’s entire interview with on Smooth R&B 105.7’s radio’s site. Check out snippets of the interview below:

Hosea Chanchez, age 14, when he was molested by his friend’s father

I’m Hosea Chanchez and when I was 14 years old I was molested BY my friends father. This man is a predator, preying on children who’s trust he’s falsely built through lies, manipulation, threats and secrets. I hope this truth helps to stop child molesting predators from sexually assaulting more children. Pedophiles have no place in our society they hide in the open and rape children who are afraid to speak up because of shame, guilt, fear, denial and the thought that no one will believe them. I’m doing this to help parents and young children become aware of some of the signs and better protect themselves from sexual predators. (Swipe to read my TRUTH)

Check out the slides below:

We are so glad Hosea found the courage to come forward with this information. What happened to him is just wrong and depraved. We are sure there will be more to this story now that he has actually named his assailant. Sadly, there may be more children this man harmed. Let’s keep Hosea in our prayers.

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.
