According to Digital Spy, Whitney Houston is remaining spiritual on her tour and holds routine bible study and prayer meetings. “Whitney is in a spiritual place now, which is really working for her,” a source told the Daily Star. “The meetings are for everyone on the tour to join in, and Whitney enjoys reading out passages from the Bible.”
In other news, folks are giving Ms. Houston mixed reviews of her performance.
Via NBC Chicago: A Gary, Indiana native will make history next month as the first black valedictorian from the University of Notre Dame. Katie Washington, 21, is a biology major and minor in Catholic social teaching with a 4.0 GPA. “I am humbled,” said Washington to the Northwest Indiana Times. “I am in a mode of gratitude and thanksgiving right now.” University officials said they couldn’t recall ever having a black valedictorian, and don’t keep record of their race.
The valedictorian has been accepted to five schools, including Harvard, but she plans to pursue a joint M.D./Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University, according to nwitimes.com. “Katie works so hard,” Washington’s mother Jean Tomlin said. “I told her when she went to Notre Dame, ‘You are representing your family, your church and the city of Gary. Make us proud.'”
She has definitely made her family proud and is following in their footsteps. Her father is a doctor, her mother and sister are nurses, one brother is completing his residency and another brother who works for British Petroleum.
“I have had so much support, people who really wanted to see that I reached my full potential,” Washington told nwitimes.com. “They all had my best interest at heart.” Washington will address the class of 2010 at commencement on May 16.
A Los Angeles judge dismissed the contempt allegation against the rapper Monday after he paid nearly $50,000 in child support to his estranged wife Kelis. Kelis’ attorney sought the contempt charge earlier this year after Nas fell $200,000 behind on child and spousal support payments. He was ordered in December to pay more than $51,000 a month to Kelis and their infant son. In a statement released Wednesday, Nas says, “All I want to do is make music and raise my kids. Nothing else matters.” (Associated Press)

See what Chilli has to say (via her Vibe blog) on why women she have higher standards.
This may sound cliché, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So you may think a guy is ugly but 10 other women may not think that. But if you choose to date someone and he’s not necessarily to your liking as far as his appearance, that depends on the woman because there are other things about him that may spark the interest and really make you want to be with him. Then maybe his looks aren’t that important and they can go out the door.
Physical attraction, I feel, is very important. I mean, it is to me. I can’t really speak for a lot of people, although looks of course deteriorate. As we get older, things change, but initially before you meet anybody when you see them, their face, their body, that’s the first thing you see. You have no idea what their personality is like. That’s when you spend the time to get to know them to find out that part. But I think you should be with somebody that you are attracted to. You should love to look at that person’s face. It doesn’t matter if the whole world thinks he’s ugly or not. As long as you think he’s gorgeous, then that’s all that matters.
There were quite a few guys on my reality show that I wasn’t feeling because I didn’t have a hand in choosing the guys. That was the whole premise of the show. I don’t look at it like I’m a control freak or anything like that, but when you’re independent and you’re used to doing things for yourself, you’re just used to that way. To do a show like this and someone is coming on and picking someone for me to go on a date with, it’s like a blind date. Do they usually work? Nine times out of ten, no they don’t. Because everybody always thinks that’s for you and it’s like, I thought you said he was cute!
I do have a high standard and I think all women should. You must have a list. Because if you don’t, then you fall for anything. You date any kind of guy and you’re never going to be happy because the person will never meet your true standards. Be vocal about your standards. Write them down. Break them up. Wat do you need? What do you want? Needs have to be met. That goes for guys, too.
When you look at yourself and you see the great qualities that you have and what you can offer someone, you don’t feel like you’re going to shortchange somebody so why shortchange yourself? You should never ever ever settle in a relationship. I always say settling is for houses. You settle in a house. Not in a relationship.
In my mind, I have a camera crew following me. If this “imaginary camera crew” was to ever interview my sister (I don’t have one), I would want her not to comment negatively on my love life. Ever. Like even if my man was beating me upside my head daily, my imaginary sister need not say a damn word to the media. With that said, Khloe Kardashian is pleased that her sister, Kim Kardashian, is now single. She did say this in a nice, unjudgemental way though.
“I pray she stays single,” Khloe, 25, said on the Today show Wednesday. “Kim goes from one relationship to the next.””I think it’s just time to move on,” she says. “It’s a good thing they never wed. It’s like ending on a good note.” Peep Khloe on the show: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hlxl0KPj5Oo]
I found this over at Nah Right. Rap-Up interviews Nas and Damian Marley. Now, I can’t understand what the hell Damian Marley is saying (I like looking @ him though), but Nas discusses Distant Relatives, Lil Wayne, and other artists like Jay Electronica, Drake, Nicki Minaj, J. Cole, etc. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Yam53Yt_XY&feature=player_embedded] Photo Credit.
blogs about sports from jail. Peep his blog below on McNabb/Redskins and more.
I think this will be a great thing for all involved, except the Eagles. One reason is because I don’t think Andy Reid was ready to part ways with the soon to be 34 year old veteran. He still had a year left on paper with the Eagles, And though I don’t think they would’ve given him an extension, for some reason I think Andy would’ve liked to see Donovan play it out. Although Reid put the word out that he was entertaining offers a few weeks ago to the coaches and GM’s. I don’t think he was the brains behind that move. i think this was above him. Another reason is because of where he eneded up. Why send him to Washington? Now he gets to play the eagles twice. I’m sure he has those days marked already. The other reason is the Eagles don’t have sufficient QB to fufill the role. I mean the 2nd round pick, Kevin Kolb, and Michael Vick doesn’t exactly fit the bill if you ask me. Philly is a hard place to play and an even harder place to play for. My sympathy gees out to Kolb and Vick, who will be expected to do nothing other than win.
Now McNabb is headed to the great QB coaching of Shanahan. This will be great! He’s still a prime QB, despite the fact that he hasn’t played a full season all but once in the last six. He’s a post season shoe in. I’m glad he didn’t end up with the Raiders. He wouldn’t have a shot! I’m calling this the craziest QB trade since Brett to the Vikings.
Congrads to Duke & Coach K, as well as UCONN women and gents. I think both of those guys need new day jobs. More complicated ones. NBA, WNBA!
