'Meagan Good On Marriage: "One Thing I Would Say To All Women Is Don’t Settle."'


Newly wed Meagan Good has some advice for single women looking for Mr. Right.

Meagan wants women who are looking to get married to know that there are still some good men out there and that they need to wait on the man God has designed for them.

On a quest for love, some women are willing to relax their standards a little just to say they have a man and Meagan said she just wasn't willing to do that. Too many people settle for what they consider to be "good enough."

“Sometimes…you make what you think are sacrifices because you see there’s potential here, or this person has it in their heart there’s just got to be some growing."

Like most women, Meagan has kissed a few frogs in her day and was happy to meet her now husband, DeVon Franklin, and is absolutely in love with the man he is and is still smitten by him even though the honeymoon is over.

“It’s been pretty amazing,” Meagan said of married life. “He is absolutely the most incredible thing that’s happened to me. We want the same thing out of life and that’s important."

She goes on to talk about how the both of them want to a closer relationship with God and how their walk with Christ makes their relationship so strong.

Miasha Tells How She Was Able To 'Write Her Way Out The Hood' With A 6-Figure Book Publishing Deal@AuthorMiasha

How She Did It: Miasha Tells How She Was Able To 'Write Her Way Out The Hood' With A 6-Figure Book Publishing Deal

What's Her Name?

Miasha Coleman, 32

What's Her Occupation?

Jay-Z’s lyrics, “I wrote my way out the hood and I pray that I stay out for good” best describes Miasha. She used her pen as a way out of an environment that incuded a broken home and two crack-addicted parents.

Unlike many first time authors, particularly those of urban literature, Miasha did not have to self-publish her work before getting a deal. Instead, she managed to gain the attention of several major publishing houses, causing a bidding war to ensue. Publishing powerhouse Simon and Schuster was the highest bidder, granting Miasha a six-figure deal.

After she penned her first novel, 'Secret Society', Miasha went on to become an Essence Best Selling Author, as well as the first urban-literature author to be featured in Elle Magazine. She's also been featured across the nation through outlets such as BET, CBS, and The Wendy Williams Experience. She is the author of 7 novels, 6 of which she authored during her first three years in the business, and one of which she adapted into a stage play that sold out on every one it's tour dates. Miasha is now living her dreams as a best-selling author, wife, and mother of two. Continue reading to find out how she did it.


How She Got Started: I used to write poetry and short stories when I was a little girl so I always knew that I wanted to be an author, but I didn’t think it would happen until later on in my life after I had a career and retired. I thought maybe after I retired that I’d write my autobiography. It just so happened that at my college graduation the keynote speaker was an author, and hearing her story really inspired me because I knew that writing was a passion of mine since I was young. It felt as if she was talking directly to me. At that moment, I made a decision that I wasn’t going to search for a job after college. I was going to write a book.

What She Did After Writing The Book: I wrote my first book, ‘Secret Society‘, in 3 months. I then reached out to that author who spoke at my college graduation, Karen Quinones Miller. Karen’s story just so happen to be that she had written a book and nobody would publish it, so she published it herself and sold so many copies in such a short amount of time that the publishers started knocking at her door. In my mind, I figured that I wasn’t even going to go through the rejection process. I was just going to self-publish my first book, get a bunch of sales, and the publishing houses will come to me.

I remembered her name from my graduation and I googled it. I found her email address on her website. I sent her an email and told her that she inspired me, that I had written a book, and I wanted some advice on how to self-publish it. She responded not long after and her advice to me was to try to get a publishing deal first and then use self-publishing as a last resort. She told me that self publishing is very time consuming, that it costs a lot of money, and that a lot of self-publishers fail.

I took her advice after writing the book and reached out to Terry Woods, who’s huge in urban literature. Terry actually wanted to buy my book outright. She also wanted me to write a second book before signing me to a five book publishing deal. I was ecstatic, but before I signed the deal....

Would You Wear Boots In Summer! There's a Right and a Wrong Way



People often assume that boots are only a fall/winter thing, but I think that nothing makes your legs look longer and sexier than a pair of knee-high boots and some cute cutoffs. The key to choosing a pair of summer-appropriate boots is a looser fit and a lighter color. If your boots are too tight or have too high of a heel, they can definitely end up looking a little go-go dancer.

My boots were Givenchy, but if you want the same look for less I found this fabulous Vince Camuto pair for a fraction of the price. Invest in a new pair of boots now, and they’ll take you from the warmer months all through the winter season!



Would you rock boots with a pair of shorts? Let me know in the comments!

Stevie J Responds To Engagement Rumors!

Stevie J responds to engagement rumors

Did Stevie J pop the question to 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' co-star Joseline Hernandez?

Did Stevie J pop the question to 'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' co-star Joseline Hernandez?


Stevie J wouldn’t confirm or deny rumors that he’s engaged to “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” co-star Joseline Hernandez.

“I ain’t ready to say nothing,” he told Sister 2 Sister when asked about the latest gossip.

A recent photo of Stevie and Joseline, in which she’s wearing a huge rock on her left hand, was posted to Twitter and blogs were buzzing with speculation that Stevie had popped the question.

“They’re saying a lot,” Stevie said about the reports.

According to, not only did Stevie propose, but he did so in front of the cameras in a “moving” and “touching” scene.

When the show premiered, Stevie was still involved in an on-again off-again relationship with co-star Mimi Faust. However, after watching Stevie and Joseline together on TV, Mimi ended their years-long romance.

That leaves Stevie a single man, free to date or marry Joseline or any of his other admirers.

“Me and all my babymamas, we all happy,” Stevie said.
