Photo of the Week: Serena Williams' Post-Pregnancy Body

Serena Williams speaks about loving and valuing her body

This week, we are combining our Photo and Motivational Quote of the Week.

The photo and quote come from the legendary professional tennis player, Serena Williams, as she shows off her post-pregnancy body:

"I've been called man because I appeared outwardly strong. It has been said that that I use drugs (No, I have always had far too much integrity to behave dishonestly in order to gain an advantage).

It has been said I don't belong in Women's sports—that I belong in Men's—because I look stronger than many other women do. (No, I just work hard and I was born with this badass body and proud of it)."

Cheap Sex: A New Book Says Women Are Playing Themselves

VIDEO DISCUSSION: Mark Regnerus, controversial author of Cheap Sex, says women are sabotaging their chances for marriage by making sex so low cost

Thanks to cheap sex, marriage may be doomed, according to a new book, Cheap Sex: The Transformation of Men, Marriage, and Monogamy, by sociologist Mark Regnerus.

He says that men are in the driver’s seat that as long as sex is so low-cost for men, heterosexual women will have increasing difficulties finding a partner worth committing to.

Do you think men are turning away from marriage because they’re able to have their sexual needs met without it?

Actress Halle Berry is Dating Again!

VIDEO DISCUSSION: Given that Halle Berry’s relationships don’t seem to last and they are so public do you applaud her for trying again?

After a break from dating, Academy Award-winning actress, Halle Berry is stepping back in the dating pool again.

Berry posted a photo of her and her new man, British music producer Alex Da Kid on Instagram with a caption, “My balance.”

In August, Berry told People that she was taking a break from dating after her divorce from French actor Olivier Martinez in 2016.

The two split in 2015 after two years of marriage, and they have a 3-year-old son together.

In less than two months, Berry is posting photos of herself with her “new” man.

So, did Berry tell People she wasn’t dating so that people could stop following her and asking the dating question?

Or, did she really mean it and things just happened?

Will Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri Reunite?

VIDEO DISCUSSION: A source says Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri are friends, but not in a romantic relationship

Word has it that Janet Jackson’s, ex, Jermaine Dupri, has become a shoulder for Jackson to lean on since the break up from her husband, Wissam Al-Mana. Jackson dated Dupri from 2001 – 2009.

It makes sense because the two were together for nearly 10 years and they are still friends, right?

Friends and lovers are two different things, at least according to a source.

Someone close to the situation tells E! News, Dupri, and Jackson, who is soon to be divorced from her husband, are close, but definitely not in a relationship.

"Jermaine has a crazy love for Janet and they have been speaking more since the breakup. Janet and Jermaine trust each other and they have history."

Furthermore, Janet's focus is on her infant son, Eissa, and her current State of the World Tour, according to the source.

"Janet is really not in a position to get involved with someone at this time," the source explained. "She is open, though, for something more down the line. They are in the talks of working on some new projects."

We’ll keep an eye on the Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupri relationship; we’d be surprised if it doesn’t blossom into something more than just work.

Did Toni Braxton and Birdman Elope?

Tamar Braxton, Toni’s younger sister may have unwittingly dropped the deets on Toni and Birdman

Tamar Braxton stated on The Wendy Williams Show that she believes that her older sister, R&B diva Toni Braxton, and hip-hop mogul Bryan “Birdman” Williams may have eloped.

A seemingly odd couple, it appears that Birdman may seem out of place with Toni Braxton, but his acts like a caring husband.

Time will tell if Toni Braxton and Bryan “Birdman” Williams jumped the broom.

 

How Long will Megyn Kelly Today Last on NBC

NBC took a bet on Megyn Kelly, a not so popular media personality, and the first week of Megyn Kelly Live didn’t go so well

Megyn Kelly’s new show on NBC, Megyn Kelly Today that replaced Tamron Hall and Al Roker isn’t making friends and influencing people.

Already, Kelly incited a mini-controversy by suggesting that a Will & Grace superfan “became” gay because of his love of the show; ticked off Jane Fonda by asking her about plastic surgery; faced underwhelming ratings; and dealt with some blistering reviews.

 

Judge Dismisses Case Against Black Lives Matter

Judge Rules ‘Black Lives Matter’ itself is not an entity of any sort.” McKesson was “solely engaged in protected speech.”

U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson dismissed the lawsuit against DeRay McKesson and Black Lives Matter brought by a police officer who says he was hit by a rock at a rally in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on July 17, 2016.

In a 24-page ruling that states in part, “Although many entities have utilized the phrase ‘black lives matter’ in their titles or business designations, ‘Black Lives Matter’ itself is not an entity of any sort.”

Additionally, Judge Jackson further concluded that McKesson was “solely engaged in protected speech.”
