Eddie George Speaks Out About His Passenger Side Ride

Posted March 8, 2012 8:12 PM By Deirdre B Pride

Retired NFL baller Eddie George is speaking out against the allegations or assumptions that he was stepping out on his wife with  Becky  pro golfer Rachel Connor.  TMZ reported that she was busted for DUI, and blew a .13 with Eddie as a passenger, at around 2 AM earlier in the week.
In case you didn’t know, Eddie has been married with children to singer Tamara “Taj” Johnson of the reemerging girl group, SWV since 2004.

I didn’t report it because I didn’t believe he would pose for a photo opt with some one he was stepping out with. Although stranger things have happened.   Not enough facts for me.  I got burned like that with the Matt Barnes and Eva Longoria debacle……..   Any who, here is what Eddie had to say in his statement obtained by TMZ.
Here’s Eddie’s entire statement:

“As part of a two-day charity golf event, a group of us who had played together on Tuesday celebrated at dinner.  The group included Rachel Connor.”

“After dinner, as everyone left the restaurant together, we realized that Rachel lived the closest to where I was staying. So she offered to drop me off.  I believed her to be competent to drive and not impaired at all.  We were stopped shortly after we left.”

“At first, I hesitated to respond to this story. But I now see that people are willing to think the worst. So my wife, Tamara , and I believe we have to address this.”

“Rachel Connor was simply trying to be nice by offering me a ride. No one in our group felt she was impaired or we all would have stopped her from driving.”

Latoya constantly shows that she definitely has staying power and is resilient to mess.  In her interview with Edge Magazine she talks about how she has held out in the game and how the tough skin she has developed during her childhood, protected her through those rough patches in her adult life.   That extra layer will come in handy when you have to deal with nonsense.  I can #PREACH on it.  Take a look a a snippet from the interview below and check out a few pics from the shoot.

“It’s been a long journey. I’ve learned a lot, I literally grew into a woman in this industry but I wouldn’t change any of my journey…not a single thing”, says LeToya in her surprisingly still present Texas drawl, “I’m a lot more relaxed, I know how to fully let go and let God sit in the driver seat”. Her maturity shines through in her absolute positivity about the things she’s experienced. When most artists would take the time to openly rebuke their adversaries, LeToya has remained mum about everything surrounding her earlier days in the industry and has instead allowed her beautiful spirit to take the lead. But she’ll be the first to tell you that it wasn’t always an easy road for her. Having had a rough childhood in which she “saw a lot”, LeToya developed a tough skin that didn’t allow her to be the woman she has fought to become. “I was a rock, I never cried. I never wanted people to see how they’d affected me, I didn’t think that was ok to do”, she explains, “I was strong for everyone, I tried to control everything around me so that I wouldn’t be disappointed and it overwhelmed me. As an adult now I’ve become much more ok with showing that I am human, I can cry, you can hurt me—but I’m still strong and it won’t break me”.  And her willingness to be transparent shows throughout her music. Heartfelt and honest, LeToya’s biggest hits have come out of the ups and downs she’s experienced at the hands of love. She admits to being very chained to a man with whom she could not make a relationship work for the greater part of her solo career. And as with everything else in her past, she’s found a way to use it to her advantage. “You can’t control someone’s actions and you can’t expect perfection from anyone, you’re going to have to learn how to live and love whoever they are—if you really want to be happy in a relationship”. Her ability to focus solely on what the future holds has opened the doors of opportunity as she has channeled her positive energy into an avenue for other ventures.

Mercy: Some Gratuitous Lenny Kravitz

Posted March 8, 2012 6:22 PM By Deirdre B Pride

Lenny Kravitz, 47, spoke to Interview Magazine about his latest role in Hunger Games.  He plays Cinna, a flamboyant stylist who dresses his co-star’s character Katniss Everdeen in eccentric attire.  The Gary Ross’post-apocalyptic thriller is based on the wildly book series by Suzanne Collins that tracks  participants in a adolescent death-match game show.

Lenny said the director had seen him in the 2009 drama, Precious.  He said “Hi, I’m making this movie called The Hunger Games. I think you’d be great. If you want it, you’ve got the part. No audition.  I was really flattered, but I had not read the book. So I downloaded it. I remember I started it late one night and I needed to go to bed—I was tired and had been recording all day and night—but I couldn’t stop reading because I was captured by the story. So I finished the book and called him back and said, I’d love to do it.”

And the rest is history.  He sure does look nice doesn’t he?  He looks better than men half his age.  Jus Gawjus!!!

Posted March 8, 2012 2:29 PM By Deirdre B Pride


Making its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show this week, the V12 Zagato road-car is seen here in one its first dynamic outings.  The V12 Zagato is a car which represents the latest expression of a successful creative collaboration between Aston Martin and Zagato, one that has given rise to a series of striking GT cars over the last half-century. A work of art built by skilled craftsmen to be driven and enjoyed by the world’s most discerning car collectors, the V12 Zagato is a fitting tribute to its illustrious ancestor, the DB4GT Zagato.

Welp, what do ya think?  It is nice.  Albeit it’s for the single or those going through some type of midlife crisis, does it make you want to step your game up….get your lifestyle right…….at least a little?   Me either.  I’m a sedan type of chick.

Taylor Swift Sports Piece From Kanye West’s Line in Harpers Bazaar

Posted March 8, 2012 1:14 PM By Deirdre B Pride

I’m not sure how many times Taylor Swift has said all is forgiven when it comes to Kanye West, but folks are still harping on that 2009 Grammy debacle.  corny pun not intended….really.  Personally, I’m so over it.  Folks are gasping about how she is wearing his design in the upcoming issue of April’s Harper’s Bazaar.

The surprise that she is wearing it should not stem from some old azz grudge.  The surprise should come from the fact that Kanye received such bad reviews on his gear, yet she still chose to wear it.  Sorry, just keeping it 100.

I already said the line was had it’s decent looks and not so decent looks.  You betta believe that if you leave Kanye in the game long enough, he’ll get it right and you may just like it, despite how you feel about the guy.

I think a lot of the reviews are biased and based on the Taylor Swift debacle and folks just need to get over it.  How can you stay mad at someone that hasn’t done anything to you?  Doesn’t mess with you…or do anything to make your day go bad?  Judge the line based on the line.  Stop being so d*mn judgmental and keep it pushin’.  Don’t you have other things that concern you that you should be worrying about?  Well don’t you? #getyourelifefool
