Tisha Campbell-Martin and her husband have reportedly filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, according to several reports.
Campbell-Martin claimed that she and her husband Duane Martin were overwhelmed by over $15 million in debt, with $313,000 in assets to their name. Those assets include $65,000 in real estate, with $248,000 in personal property, while their debts total $15,145,387, including $208,611 in tax debt and $113,000 in student loans.
It’s disheartening to realize this is not the last story we’ll hear of or read about someone who had a lot of money falling on hard times. Acting is a lot like sports in the respect that those that make a living from it have a short career shelf life. Translated – at some point the influx of big money slows down. If intelligent and responsible financial decisions haven’t been made one can find themselves financially destitute. I hope Campbell and her husband emerge from this okay.
Mississippi Govenor Phil Bryant signed a law Tuesday, April 5th allowing religious groups and private businesses to deny services to gay and transgender people. The bill allows religious groups and some private businesses to refuse service to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people based on religious beliefs.
To my LBGT readers don’t take this personal – Mississippi has been denying services to Blacks and most anybody that wasn’t White and backwood enough to agree to participate in such atrocities since way back when. It was only a matter of time before they got around to ya’ll. Here’s how you deal with shit like this. Double down at the ballot box on kicking folks like Phil Bryant out of office. As a matter of a fact find out every mofo that had anything to do with a bill like this and when he or she is up for election and vote for their opponents.
The Blackest thing I’ve seen all April is The Black Girls Rock Event hosted by BET. All of those beautiful powerful inspiring Black Women and girls celebrating one another in a positive environment is an endorsement African American women globally deserve and should reciprocate.
Oh, and that performance by Gladys Knight – awesome. I’ve been crushing on Gladys since I was six and I’m going to tell you at the Black Girls Rock Event she looked good enough to sop up with a biscuit.

Don’t get me started on RiRi – I have a soft spot in my heart for bad girls.
Birthday month for me. Folks keep asking me what I want for my birthday. Let me tell you all you should stop asking folks what they want for their birthdays if you are not serious about considering getting them what they tell you. If what they want is within reason and the confines of your budget that is. I’d love a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge if there are any generous readers out there that want to hook up their favorite blogger. (Hint). Or you could just put my blog on blast and get me more subscribers which would increase the chances of some generous soul gifting me the sexiest smartphone I’ve seen.
Well, that’s it for this roundup. I hope you enjoyed it and found something useful.
Thanks for coming through.
