Why you should forgive infidelity: A man's view of the ultimate betrayal

Tabloid Reports Eva Longoria Splits From Tony Parker
Given the opportunity (and no consequences) all men would be unfaithful, says novelist and screenwriter William Nicholson. And in a stable marriage, he argues, perhaps a fling isn’t such a big deal.

Find a moment when you and your husband are alone together and ask him a hypothetical question: ‘If you had the chance, and if you were sure no one would ever know, and if you were sure there would be no consequences, would you have sex with another woman?’

Pic of KC Presh's Sengemenge Mansion.

The Sengemenge Mansion under construction. Pic was taken last week

The 'mansion' which is still under construction is a multi-million naira triplex being built at Omole Phase 2, Ikeja, Lagos, by the singing duo of Kingsley and Precious of KC Presh. The construction of the building only started three months ago, but will be completed next month.

Yeah, I know what you are thinking and here's your answer. Other than show business, the guys are also into shipping services, real estate and interior decor.

BTW, this house remind you of another celeb 'mansion'?

"Blog is a community for people who don't have anything else to do and hate themselves" Rihanna

Sheepish: The singer looked a little bashful appearing on BET's 106 & Park in New York yesterdaySheepish: The singer looked a little bashful appearing on BET's 106 & Park in New York yesterday
"I read the blogs sometimes, it depends on what it is I am trying to find out. I’m a lot more numb to it now only because I understand what it is. It’s a community for people who don’t have anything else to do and hate themselves, they hate their life, they hate their job, they hate their appearance, they are uncomfortable with who they are so what makes them feel good is talking smack about other people who they think they will never ever see in their life and they happen to be celebrities. It seems impossible to ever have the opportunity to say these things to their face, so they get to hide behind their computer." Rihanna said in a recent radio interview with Ed Lover

I hear you Rihanna but please give me the computer over that red hair any day...
Lol. *just kidding*

The truck used in picking up the Super Falcons. How disgraceful!

The Nigerian female National Team, the Super Falcons, won the 2010 CAF Women's Championship that held in South Africa and ended last week. The truck you see above is what the NFF, (Nigeria Football Federation) sent to the airport to pick them up. How they think it's OK to carry these girls in this type of plantain/cow truck is beyond me.

*Long hiss*

"Do not vote for a Muslim President" - Pastor Paul Adefarasin

“Do not vote for a Muslim President. Muslims have ruled the country for long. Nigerians used to be the most educated people in the world until the likes of Abacha and the Murtala Muhammed came and scattered our educational system to slow down the South so that the North can catch up, instead of speeding up the North.

Assault update: Lagos Assembly to sue actress over allegations of assault. They are claiming extortion and blackmail.

Click for Full Image Size

The Lagos State House of Assembly on Monday said it will take a legal action against claims made by Nollywood actress, Ufoma Ejenabor.

"It is offensive to call Nigeria 'Naija' - Prof. Dora Akunyili

"It is very offensive to call Nigeria ‘Naija’. We are making plans to write companies to stop using the word Naija. I have heard that name Naija in adverts. I want them to go back and remove that word. If anybody says this is Naija, ask the person, 'Where is Naija?' We have to stop this word because it is catching up with the young. If we don't put a stop to its usage now, it will continue to project us wrongly.” - Minister of Information and Communication, Prof. Dora Akunyili.

Seriously what is wrong with giving your country a nickname? How does it project us wrongly?
Isn't US called Uncle Sam or something like it?..:-)
What's your thoughts on this? Is calling Nigeria 'Naija' offensive?
