RIM Changes Name To Blackberry, Blackberry 10 Is Introduced + Alicia Keys Named Global Creative Director


Blackberry revealed the anticipated Blackberry 10 smartphones yesterday, introducing the Z10 and Q10.

Blackberry for years dominated the marketplace, but with the uber successful Apple iPhone and Android brands, Blackberry took a nosedive in popularity and sales.

So in introducing BB 10, Blackberry is hoping to get back in the competitive race of smartphones. Only time will tell.

Personally, I have an iPhone and a Blackberry.

I use two phones because I simply refused to give up the Blackberry brand all together.

Quite frankly, Blackberry is the perfect smartphone to use for business purposes and actual phone conversations (specifically the BB's with the QWERTY keyboard), second to none.

The Apple iPhone is the best entertainment gadget (IMO), that happens to be a smartphone. So therefore I need both and will continue to be an iPhone and Blackberry user.

In general, I think it's a good idea to have two mobile phones. One for personal use and one for business.

With all that being said, check out the new Z10, Q10 and more Blackberry news.

OLITZ ON THE TUBE: Kerry Washington And Tony Goldwyn Talk SCANDAL On THE VIEW & GMA

Be sure to catch an all new SCANDALous episode tomorrow at 10PM EST on ABC! As always, big ups to the Youtubers who upload the vids!



Via Barnes & Noble:

The definitive account of Whitney Houston’s astonishing life, ground-breaking career, and tragic death — complete with never-before-seen photographs — from the only one who truly knows the story behind the headlines: her mother, Cissy Houston. Cissy has said little publicly about Whitney’s heart-breaking death.

Now, for the first time, she opens up and shares the unbelievable story of her daughter’s life, as well as her own, and addresses Whitney’s brightest and darkest moments.

A legendary Grammy Award–winning gospel singer in her own right, Cissy Houston shows how the lessons from her own musical journey helped to shape Whitney’s career — from teaching Whitney to use her voice, to keeping her level-headed throughout her meteoric rise to fame. With candor and respect, she sets the record straight about Whitney, exploring both her turbulent marriage and her misunderstood struggles with drug abuse.

Cissy goes behind the tabloid headlines to show fans around the world the true, human side of a strong, successful — yet flawed — musical icon who died much too young.

[Special Edition] - Political Urban Legends: Did George W. Bush Have A Secret Affair With Condoleezza Rice?


I was just thinking the other day how quiet former President George W. Bush has been for the last few years. After a turbulent eight years under his watch, it has been a breath of fresh air having President Obama as Commander-In-Chief.

So even though George W. Bush's tenure as POTUS is over, you'd think he would be more visible in public from time to time.

Look at former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, they continue to make a huge difference for different causes and publicly bring attention to them. Even former Vice-President Al Gore has found success bringing climate change and environment issues to the forefront and most recently selling a news network [Current] he co-founded.

So it's a bit odd, well to me, that we really haven't heard a peep from a man who ran the country for eight years.

He wrote a book, titled, Decision Points, which I read; due to the fact that I really wanted to know what in the world he was thinking during his time in office. It was a very interesting read.

He did an interview with Oprah, which was quite entertaining and he and Laura Bush appeared back in May 2012 alongside the Obamas, for the unveiling of their [George & Laura Bush] portraits at the White House.

With all that being said, still it seems as though he has chosen a life of seclusion.

Yet another component to the 'quietness' is that of George W. Bush's former Secretary Of State Condoleezza Rice. They both seem to have chosen a more private life.

So then I recalled the rumors that started floating around on blogs and small newspapers about a possible affair between Bush and Rice. When I first heard the rumors years ago, I immediately thought it was  complete fabrication. But the talk became more prevalent on political blogs and  small pieces of bread crumbs suddenly started revealing startling coincidences.

A plethora of websites have blogged about this salacious rumor through the years, one in particular wrote a rather interesting write up with new details back in 2012.

A must read.

But first a few innocent photos that in context makes this story that much more scandalicious.

Via AfroSaxonHeat.Com:  

George Bush And Condoleezza Rice Affair Revealed—Love Letters To Condi From Bush Found At White House

The Intimate love letters that that ex US president George Bush sent to his Secretary Of State Condoleezza Rice, have been found in a stash of missing White House emails and could spell curtains for the former President’s long-troubled marriage, a close source reveals.

The love letters are part of 22 million electronic messages from the Bush administration that were thought to have been destroyed. The documents were recently recovered by computer experts after a watchdog sued the government to obtain information on other activities by top level Bush officials.

Sources say the explosive notes are bound to set off another round of fireworks between Bush and the former first lady. “These emails are the smoking gun” Said the source “It’s likely the whole world will soon see them, and Bush won’t be able to hide from his words.”

The messages are believed to have been sent between March 2003 and October 2005, when sources say the Bush marriage was already strained. “George is absolutely panicking and shaking” a friend of America’s ex-commander-in-chief reveals.

Rumors were rampant over the last three years that Bush,63, and Condoleezza, 55, were having an affair. The talk sparked bitter arguments between Laura, 63, and her beleaguered husband-and at one point she stormed out of the White House to spend the night at a nearby hotel.

Laura had her suspicions about what was going on between the pair but could not prove anything. A slip of the tongue by Rice almost gave things away when she referred to Bush as “My husband” at a dinner party in Washington- and Bush returning the compliment by calling Rice “My date” during an overseas trip together.

“The president says that during his lowest times he reached out to Condi and talked in detail about his loveless marriage to Laura–and once he even told Condi he wanted to be by his side” said the source.

Things got so bad that by the time the Bushes left the White House they were living in separate places. He is living on the ranch in Crawford, Texas, while Laura stays at the £2 million house in Dallas that he bought for her.

Now the newly discovered emails are sure to spell even more trouble for the ex-president, experts say. “Thought George and Condi have always denied having an affair, Laura never really believed him” reveals the source “There was too much smoke, too many rumors.

“Now if some of those 22 million emails turn out to be love letters to Rice, George is going to have a lot of explaining to do”

It's interesting to note that it would seem the "media" would really want to know what happened to those emails, especially in light of the recent Petraeus scandal.

But of course, this particular "scandal" could be covered up quite easily and emails disappear... for good.

It seems this story will remain a political urban legend.

[Full Episodes] - DECEPTION Season 1 - Pilot Episode + Episode 2 [Must See TV]

NBC's new show DECEPTION is actually good. Big ups to NBC for also creating a quality prime-time show with a woman of color in the leading role.

If a show doesn't have substance, good writers and great actors, it's just a setup for the show to fail. But NBC has not done that with DECEPTION, which of course is a good thing.

So if you haven't tuned in to DECEPTION, take some time over the weekend and catch up on the first two episodes.

DECEPTION airs Mondays at 10PM on NBC. It's a great addition to television.


Must See TV - [Full Episode] - SCANDAL Season 2 - Episode 11 "A Criminal, a Whore, an Idiot and a Liar"

Lawd! This episode was off the chain.

From the moment Olivia READ Edison's ass, Fitz being back, the OLITZ flashback & present scenes, which cemented and reinforced the fact that Fitz & Olivia are soul mates, the voter machine rigging scandal, reeling in the VP, the triple cliff hanger... etc were on point.

The emotional connection and love Fitz and Olivia have for one another is truly breathtaking.

Standing ovation to the writers of this show. Pure genius! The acting from this talented cast is outstanding.  Emmys all around!

Episode 12 Trailer: 'Truth or Consequences' [Oh my gawd!!!]

[Updated] - Break-up? - Nicole Beharie Says She's No Longer Dating Michael Fassbender Via Twitter


Well it seems one of the most talented duos in Hollywood have called it quits or have they?.

Nicole Beharie tweeted some rather surprisingly personal information recently.

 On 1.11.13 she tweeted:

 After 3 weeks in Thailand, One week in the desert of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Finally heading back to LA...miss you guys   
[F.Y.I - These are locations where Michael Fassbender was filming]
Yes its true Fassbender and I are no longer dating.

She then tweeted a trailer link for her upcoming highly anticipated film "42". [Check the archives to watch the trailer].

Right before she tweeted she was no longer dating 'Fassbender', she retweeted a tweet from Russell Simmons that stated:

Keep pushing forward no matter what sort of obstacles you face 

But the most surprising thing of all, is the fact that Nicole even said anything at all about the relationship. She seems private, and to put that out on twitter was very abrupt and deliberate.

At first I was like oh snap! Does Michael know it's over?

Of course you can't tell the tone of an emotion through a tweet or text but it seems the tweet was sent with some type of a emotion behind it. What type? I don't know.   Hell relationships are difficult regardless if you're a celebrity or not, but to have your relationship in the spotlight has to make it that much more difficult.

At least the two gave it a good try. They were together a little over a year and that's saying alot with their hectic schedules.

Nicole is a talented actress in her own right. She will begin production on the film "The Keeping Room" soon, which will co-star Olivia Wilde and Hailee Steinfeld.

Micheal has numerous projects lined up back to back and that kind of schedule can wreak havoc on your personal life.

Wishing them both the best in their future endeavors.

Must See TV: SCANDAL Season 2 - Episode 10 "One For The Dog" [FULL EPISODE]

Well it was near torture waiting weeks for a new episode of SCANDAL, but it arrived just in the nick of time last Thursday, and it DID NOT disappoint!

As always, the show kept you on the edge of your seat, had your emotions all over the place. When the commercials hit, you realized you could breathe again.

The captivating plot twists on SCANDAL, coupled with a genius writing team and stellar cast performances, continues to make this show the best on television.

Congrats go out to the entire cast, writers and crew of SCANDAL. The show has become a massive hit and each week the ratings increase.

As I always say... if you're not watching SCANDAL, you're missing one hell of a show.

Anywho, check out episode 10.

Film director George Lucas is engaged to his long-time girlfriend Mellody Hobson. Congrats to the happy couple!

  George & Mellody on Oprah's Next Chapter

Via US Weekly:

After a six-year courtship, George Lucas and Mellody Hobson are engaged!

The couple shared their happy news with the world Jan. 3. The acclaimed Star Wars director, 68, and the DreamWorks Animation chair, 43, first laid eyes on one another at a business conference. "How else would a financial person and movie person ever be at the same place at the same time?" Lucas said during an interview on Oprah's Next Chapter in January 2012.

According to Hobson, a Princeton University graduate who is also the head of a Chicago-based investment management firm, their relationship works because they are both "extraordinarily open-minded people, and we are open to what the universe brings us." She added, "We didn't have preconceived ideas about what a partner should be, and so we allowed ourselves to discover something that was unexpected.

In October 2012, Lucas sold his television and film production company, Lucasfilm Ltd., to the Walt Disney Company for $4.05 billion. The Indiana Jones director had announced his retirement four months prior. This will be the first marriage for Hobson and the second for Lucas, who was previously wed to Marcia Griffin from 1969 to 1983.

The exes adopted a daughter, Amanda, and Lucas adopted two more children, Katie and Jett, after their split. Lucas and Hobson have yet to reveal a wedding date.

Ex General Hosptial Star Steve Burton Announces He's Joining Rival Soap Y&R!

Side Note: Congrats to Steve Burton on his new gig. But it's definitely bittersweet. It's just so messed up that ABC and Steve couldn't work out an agreement.

The rivalry in daytime is fierce and 'The Young & The Restless' capitalizes on that by hiring numerous 'General Hospital' alums. Think I'm exaggerating?

'Y&R' hired GH alums Genie Francis [ex-Laura], Stephen Nichols [ex-Stefan], Tristan Rogers [ex-Scorpio], Ignacio Serricchio [ex-Diego], Blake Gibbons [ex-Coleman], Adrianne Leon [ex-Brook Lynn] and Sean Kanan [AJ].

Yes. 'General Hosptial' is the 'talent agency' for 'The Young & The Restless'. Might as well be.

Ironically, 'General Hospital' recently added Sean Kanan back on the show after Steve Burton left.

[Sean Kanan and Steve Burton are cousins in real-life, but played brothers on GH].

So you see the shadiness with 'GH' trying to cause a ruckus of their own. Whatever. I'm so done.

BOOK OF THE MONTH: [January 2013] AIDEN'S GAME By Sienna Mynx [ Book #1 In The Tale Of Three Hearts Series]



Meet Aiden Keane: rich, sexy, and bored. He owns Vegas and every lost soul looking to make it rich. No bets are placed at the infamous Shamrock Hotel from which Aiden Keane doesn't collect.

But with all that he's acquired, he's squandered even more. Arrogance and curiosity draw Aiden to a young couple down on their luck.

One look at Daisy Johnson and a plan forms. A young woman, whose simple, small-town upbringing makes her crave the glamorous life, seems the perfect prey for Aiden's wanderlust.

He approaches her and her boyfriend with the promise to make her dreams come true. But does he? A deal is made. One sex-filled night on his terms with Daisy Johnson will bring about a bounty of a million dollars, free and clear. The stakes? Her dignity, and her young lover's pride. Can the love of money and a young woman's greed destroy the bonds of 'true love'? Aiden thinks so. It's a wager he's sure to win--until he, too, learns a valuable lesson: play with the wrong woman's heart and you may lose your own.

*Also read book #2 in Aiden's, Daisy's and Pete's story... DAISY'S CHOICE



In the game of hearts there can be more than one loser... Take Daisy Johnson, for starters.

She came from nothing but now she has it all: a thriving business, a beautiful daughter, and the financial security that makes her the master of her own destiny. Yet the memories of two very different loves cast a shadow of doubt and fear that keeps her trapped in self-imposed isolation.

Aiden Keane remains haunted by the games he played with one woman's heart. Now she's gone, and his obsessive nature has fueled a five-year mission to find her. Her rejection and disappearance has left him wondering if he'll ever see her again. But what Aiden wants, he wants, and he will risk it all to find and claim her once more.

Pete Doyle wants a fresh start. He's sure as hell earned it. It's taken him five years to get over his first love and the role he played in destroying it. Now he has a new girlfriend and a business opportunity of his own. Pete wants closure, or maybe something more. Until he understands which of the two is most important, his life continues in limbo.

Tragedy hits the small town of Hollow Creek, and the paths of all three players collide in the most unexpected of ways. Daisy had her reasons to remain hidden from both of the men in her past. When all her secrets are uncovered, Daisy is faced with one question: does she have any choices left?

 Via Daily Mail:


They hit headlines worldwide after it was announced that she was expecting their first child together on Sunday. But Kim Kardashian and Kanye West certainly weren't keeping a low profile in the wake of the news as they spent New Year's Eve partying in Las Vegas, reportedly earning a staggering £300,000 for their efforts.

Even though they're going to be focusing on starting a family this year, that clearly doesn't mean that the couple are going to be shirking their work commitments.

Instead of seeing in 2013 with an intimate evening, Kim and Kanye happily made their appearance at the pricey party at 1 Oak Nightclub, where tickets are $125 for women and $150 for men, while it's $3000 to hire a table. When the clock struck midnight, the loved up couple held each other close and had a passionate kiss in front of a sea of people.

Looking ecstatically happy, Kim threw her head back and laughed during the countdown, her arms wrapped around Kanye. The couple were joined by friends including John Legend and Lance Bass, who partied in the VIP area.
