Popular match maker, Patti Stanger, announced via twitter that she has called off her wedding. Her current reality show, The Millionaire Matchmaker, is in it’s third season. In her personal life, for years she’d been a match maker, but was not engaged or single (…sorta odd giving off advice, but not being married…but whatever). Last year, she became engaged to her long-time boyfriend, Andy. Last season, her show included a few segments where she was doing some typical wedding planning for her very own nuptials.

According to her very own tweets, things just didn’t work out. Looks like she wanted children and homeboy didn’t. “I just ended my relationship with Andy. It hit me really hard that I want kids in my life. You have to agree on the non-negotiables. Thank you so much for all the supportive messages, emails and Facebook comments. It means a lot. ?”

(…good luck to Patti! i’ll still be tuning in…one monkey don’t stop no show….)

Celeb Style…Kanye West, Amber Rose…Color Me Bad

Not only does Kanye West rock leather pants (instead of denim/jeans), he also rocks turquoise blazers. To be exact, these are Leather Phillip Lim Shorts. I have no idea who the blazer is. I personally love this look. It’s not for the faint of ego either. (….Yeezy, the sexy eye squint is killing me softly….)      

      

Is there anyone else, that can make turquoise lipstick and nerdy glasses look hot (…besides beyonce…)?

Adult Content….5 Reasons Why Women Should Visit the Strip Club

Written by thejasminebrand in Uncategorized
Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on Google+Pin on PinterestShare on LinkedIn

By Guest Blogger, Yosh…I’ll be bringing you a recap of Ochocinco’s Ultimate Catch tomorrow, but decided to share something a little more relevant from this past weekend. Let me first start by saying The Jasmine Brand’s favorite line–> Please. Judge Me.

This past weekend, Saturday to be exact, my girls and I visited Baltimore’s popular gentleman’s club, the 2 o-clock club, to check out a popular porn star and stripper, affectionately called Cherokee D’Ass. In honor of the growing trend of women attending female strip clubs, here are 5 reasons (as if you need them) on why you too, ladies, should visit:

1. It should be on every girl’s bucket list- You’ve seen them on tv, heard your favorite rapper “make it rain” on them and YOUR man is in love with one at your local joint. What is all the hoopla about? Might as well go see for yourself right?

2. Plain and simple, women go to strip clubs because that is where the men are. The average club night is predominately women. The average strip club night is predominately men. Women will go anywhere they know there are men even if they may not enjoy it. Strip clubs, football games, basketball games, fight parties, etc.  Nothing turns a woman on more than a man who has money to blow and doesn’t mind spending it.

3. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em- How many times have we watched The Player’s Club and thought that you could walk in Diamond’s shoes? We participate in pole dancing classes and purchase portable poles to spice it up a little more for our men. These tricks are certainly not what our mother’s taught us to keep a man happy, so we gather the girls and head to Norma Jean’s to get some first hand tricks of the trade.

4. Curiousity killed the cat- Most women won’t admit it, but at some point in life they’ve looked at another woman and thought she was ‘bad.’ Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning good. Just like your man is attracted to big butts, you take that glance to confirm if her butt is bigger than yours. What happens when you want to take another peak? Does that make you bisexual? Visit a strip club to begin exploring your sexuality. Nothing is wrong with it. Who’s goin to know what you’re there for?

5. It makes a great date- What way to show a man you have confidence and a sense of humor than going to the strip club for a date. Ever wonder how men act in a room full of women without you being there? Just imagine if you were. Does he laugh it off and ignore all 31 flavors around him? Or does he offer to buy you a lap dance? Some women are merely curious about how their men conduct themselves while at the strip club. Even though they understand that all men are not alike, their behavior can indeed be an eye-opening experience. They may not have any ulterior motives; they are just eager to put certain stereotypical ideas to rest.

For all things Yosh, follow me @PrpleSmke.

The Brain's Behind, DC's "Fortune 500" Event

The city’s been buzzing for the last few weeks about an upcoming party–The Fortune 500 Event. According to the brainchild and promoter behind the event, Mitch Mathis, the event isn’t your typical party. The Fortune 500 Event is an exclusive invite-only event, themed appropriately, For the Young, Rich, Out of Control & Socially Responsible. On Saturday August 21st, 2010 from 10 p.m.-3 a.m., DT Nation presents their premier “FORTUNE 500 Event” at MIO, 1110 Vermont Ave, NW Washington DC 20005.        

Mathis, CEO of Dream Team, LLC and DT Nation, explained, the event concept. “I’m young, motivated and goal oriented. I work hard and like to party hard. Most DC based parties attract people because they have a particular celebrity connected to the event. And quite frankly, sometimes that’s not enough; that’s not what partying should be about.” Mathis continued to explain, “Partying should be about bringing like-minded people together; where everyone feels comfortable to get loose and authentically enjoy themselves. Don’t get me wrong, there may be a few celebs in the building, but that’s not the entire Fortune 500 experience.”

In addition to this being an exclusive event, there’s a socially responsible element involved. Mathis has partnered with DIVAS Making our People Healthier (MPH), a community based organization helping people achieve total health and wellness. “I partnered with DIVAS, MPH because of the honorable work that they do for women on a community level. I’ve seen the type of work that they do first-hand and how they consistently give back to women and girls.” DIVAS, MPH focuses on health and wellness programs like HIV/AIDS awareness, stress management, mental health, financial fitness and other pressing health issues.        

Outside of the socially responsible element, I had one pressing question of Mitch. WHAT’S A GIRL TO WEAR??!! After explaining what he’d be wearing (we’ll keep it a secret), he provided some suggestions. “I want everyone to wear what they feel GQ in. Something high-end, but still funky. This is not a ‘stuffy’ event, but you must look special.”          

How does one get tickets to the event? You have to know someone, that knows someone, that knows someone else. In order to access the web site www.fortune500dc.com and details about the event, you’ll need a password.        

(…quite frankly, I’m excited…I’ll post updates and pix after the event….)
