Some married spouses get what is known as the seven-year itch where they come to a point “this fool here just ain’t doing it for me” and proceed to exit the marriage via of divorce or by simply saying bye, kiss my ass, or just disappearing.
I’ve never heard of a 8 month itch until now.
It must have been a pretty intense itch for Ed Hartwell.The former NFL linebacker has filed for divorce from his wife of 8 months, Keisha Knight Pulliam citing the standard run of the mill divorce reason — irreconcilable differences.

There’s this thing I do.
When I met a man I have a wild connection with, and hope and desire and romanticism fly’s—I sometimes in my excitement, fall into fantasy.Fantasy of what our dogs’ name will be, how he will look chopping wood in a flannel shirt at my cabin–where we will own our vacation home in Costa Rica.Yeah—that thing.
This is what I call going into “fantasy”.It is when we project all the ideals and things we desire in a partner and a relationship onto a person, prematurely.

The title of this post is a quote I lifted from a conversation Damon “Dame” Dash was having on the TV show Music Moguls.
Now considering Dash’s failures one might ascertain Dash is not the one to be quoting in a motivational context.
In his heyday, Dash was worth a reported $50 million, only to descend so deeply into debt (thanks to back taxes, back rent and other outstanding bills) that it ate away at his multi-million fortune.
Given all of that, I’d argue that Dash could offer up some noteworthy advice on what to and not to do to those with their eyes on the prize of success and prosperity. There’s always lessons to be learned from losing just as there are lessons to be learned from winning.

“Maybe you’ve never been in love like I’ve been in love.” -Lenny Williams
My good friend and the front lady over at the excellent blog seekthebestblog , Lady G, does a weekly Thursday post entitled My Jams (insert year) where she revisits hot and relevant R&B hits from years past. Each individual post is a specifically yearly experience that is an enriching read led off by one of her personal stories that are awesome mini stories within themselves. The woman can write!
Her “My Jams” editions also send me digging in the album crates of yesteryear. Since I’ve been rolling with “My Jams” I’ve rediscovered countless old school tunes and relived some wonderful times. Thanks Gwin for your MJs.
Here is the latest “dusty” album in the crate jewel I’ve come across.
Lenny Williams and the ultimate “man baring his naked feelings ” song.
“Because I Love You”.
Fellas if this jam doesn’t stop her from hanging up on you or get a response to your text, or get her to open the door – it’s over- it’s over bro.
Back in the day this song had folks making up that had never broke up. Enjoy!
Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey‘s soon-to-be ex-husband, Peter Thomas, joined the Wendy Williams Show on Thursday morning to discuss his life post-split, and the surprise announcement of divorce.
Wendy asked, “Were you into being married?”
“I loved being married,” he said.
“I love going to bed with one woman, waking up with one woman.”
Williams then asked Thomas why he though the marriage didn’t work, which is when the shade kicked in: “I don’t think she embraced [marriage] much for the fact that she has been single all her adult life and been independent all her adult life,” the silver fox explained.
“So, getting married at 42 when you now have to comprise and you have to share decisions and all of that, I don’t think she really embraced it the way I did.”
