Children, Goals, and Lawyer: Phaedra Parks Announces New Modeling Career; Signs With Wilhelmina Models @balleralert Phaedra Parks Announces New Modeling Career; Signs With Wilhelmina Models- blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since being dismissed from the cast of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” PhaedraParks has added a new gig to her longstanding career in the industry. According to Us Weekly, the lawyer-turned-reality star-turned mortician has now kicked off her career as a model. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The publication caught up with the newly named Wilhelmina model to discuss her new career move, her body, and her goals and inspirations. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I think I’m the face of ‘yes you can,’” Parks told the publication. “I’m a small town girl who has followed her dreams. Yes you can be a mom, yes you can be a lawyer and yes you can be a model. When the opportunity presented itself some people asked me ‘Why?’ and I said ‘Why not?’ A supermodel started this company and she wanted to give the power back to the women and I think I stand for the same things. I have the opportunity to show people that beauty can come in every size, shade, color, and age. It’s exciting and an adventure.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Parks then went on to discuss how she felt about representing an “under-served market,” where she explained that in this time, “women need to be empowered to stand in their truth, to be different, dare to be diverse and stand up in times of controversy.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When it comes to the particular campaigns she wants to focus on, the mother-of-two explained that she would love to be the face of a skincare or cosmetic line. However, she doesn’t mind showing some skin for the camera. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I don’t mind baring it all, I have been wearing g-strings and baring it all really every season for seven years. I had two children on national TV. I love nudity! I’ve bought a lot of exotic entertainers on the show, so I love my body and I’ve got curves. I’m a mother of two, so I’m not perfect, but I have no problem getting naked.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As things turn around in her life, from her being fired to her divorce, Parks has finally started to be happy with who she is. And now she believes, she is getting better with time.

Friends, Memes, and Relationships: Stop Blaming Others For Ruining Your Relationships; Maybe You're The Toxic One @balleralert No, really. it's adorable when you blame everyone but yourself. your ecards someecards.com Stop Blaming Others For Ruining Your Relationships; Maybe You're The Toxic One -blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When relationships go wrong, many of us are quick to place the blame on someone else. Instead of accepting responsibility for our own actions, it just seems easier to place the blame elsewhere. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Often times people don’t want to admit how their wrongdoings may have caused their relationships to become dysfunctional. If all of your relationships have ended the same way whether it’s due to your nagging, lies, infidelity, lack of loyalty, etc., you’re probably the toxic one. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ People are so quick to blame others for why they’re single or don’t have friends. You have to step back and self-reflect. Try to understand why you act and do certain things that cause an issue for others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Often times, it’s hard to accept that some of the things that you do, whether intentional or not, can and will ruin your relationships. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The first step in moving forward is to acknowledge your faults, reflect on them, and don’t go back to your toxic ways.

Clothes, Memes, and Music: Russell Simmons Accused Of Sexually Assaulting 17-Year-Old As Brett Ratner Watched, Russell Denies Claims, Releases Statement @balleralert Russell Simmons Accused Of Sexually Assaulting 17-Year-Old As Brett Ratner Watched, Russell Denies Claims, Releases Statement - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier this month, a woman by the name of Keri Claussen Khaligh came forward with allegations against Def Jam Recordings mogul, Russell Simmons and entertainment businessman, Brett Ratner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to the report, Khaligh, who was 17 at the time, met the two men at a casting call. Following their initial encounter, the two reportedly took the young girl out to dinner and then back to Simmons’ apartment to show her some work they had been working on. However, shortly after, the woman said Simmons began to get aggressive, tearing off her clothes and making sexual advances as Ratner watched, despite her calls for help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Khaligh said Simmons then tried to force her to have sex with him but eventually settled for coerced oral sex, again as the then-up-and-coming music video director watched. Following the incident, the woman said she went to take a shower, as she was feeling “disgusting.” But, Simmons came into the shower and forced himself into her, but she quickly “jerked away,” and he left. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, however, both men have denied the allegations of sexual misconduct without consent. Simmons said in a statement that “Everything that occurred between Keri and me occurred with her full consent and participation,” adding that much of their night was spent with other people or in public. Ratner, on the other hand, said he could not recall the woman calling for help, but said he did not see the woman “protest” the events that took place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, according to LA Times, six additional women have come forward with sexual misconduct allegations against Ratner.

Bad, Be Like, and Beautiful: IRE MENTOR CONQUER FROM WITHIN. CONC The world we live in can be harsh, full of anger, fear, doubt, pain and sadness. On the other hand, it can be a beautiful world full of hope, peace, happiness and life. But sometimes it is hard to find the light at the end of the tunnel. No matter what age, race or gender, the world can bite down hard on our delicate skin. It is hard to fight what is around us because some things are just out of our control. So why do we continue to fight things we cannot change? Why fight the world when it will just fight back 10 times harder? Why fight a battle that will leave us weak even if we win? Maybe we shouldn’t be fighting people, ideas or the world. Maybe there is something inside of us that we should be fighting. - No one can fully control their emotions, however, we can shape the way we think. Why look at the world in a negative way? Why only focus on the bad? Why expect the worst in people? It is difficult to exist in a place where people focus more on what is around them than what is inside of them. If we cannot shape the harshness inside of us, how can we expect the world around us to change?🤔 Conquer from within. Conquer those demons that are haunting you. Whether it be jealousy, hatred, anger or fear, you can win this inner battle. By focusing energy on these internal issues, we can conquer the emotions that make this world so harsh for us to live in. You cannot change people, so why bother trying? Focus on making yourself the person you wish the rest of the world could be like. 😉 - CONQUER life success millionairementor

Memes, New York, and Taken: Hundreds of immigrants will get to resubmit DACA renewals originally rejected as "late" It's the Trump administration's biggest reversal on immigration policy to date. Updated by Dara Lind | dara@vox.com | Nov 16, 2017, 11:43am EST Y TWEET SHARE 🚨 IMPORTANT DACA SHARE Many immigrants who did everything right to reapply for one last round of protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — but missed the deadline due to circumstances beyond their control — are going to get another chance after reporting by Vox and others about how unfairly the administration enforced the deadline. The Trump administration initially claimed that 4,000 immigrants missed the October 5 deadline to apply for one last two-year extension of protections under the DACA program, which the administration announced in September would be shut down over the next six months (with an official end date of March 5, 2018). But reporting in recent days by Vox and the New York Times showed that an untold number of those applications had been mailed well in advance of the deadline — and had been delayed due to a mysterious weeks-long Postal Service slowdown, or had been dropped in a US Citizenship and Immigration Services mailbox on October 5 but not picked up by a courier service until the next day. On Wednesday night, the Department of Homeland Security announced that those DACA recipients will be allowed to reapply for renewal. The Trump administration isn’t guaranteeing that these applications will be approved. But it’s at least agreeing to consider applications it had previously rejected out of hand. That could mean another two years of protection from deportation for hundreds, maybe even thousands, of immigrants. And it marks the first major reversal on immigration policy from an administration that has generally taken pride in its hardline stance. USCIS will contact some immigrants who were affected — but others will have to contact the government themselves
