Sometimes, we create our “ideal mate bar”, but we need to learn not to carve it in stone. Granted, no one should feel forced to lower his or her standards and settle for someone who’s not good enough for them. However taking a good look at those standards and making sure they’re valid is a good idea, and sometimes all it takes is the right person to change your mind with your standards. Red flags like previous marriages, kids, or job troubles (like unemployment) might actually be a plus if a person has learned something positive and grown from the experience. So if you’ve recently ruled out someone due to some perceived flaw, you may want to rethink the cause, person, and situation through, don’t miss out on your ideal mate. Keep in mind a bar is necessary. Like the saying goes, if you don’t stand for something, you’re fall for anything.
In late 2007, Mo’Nique made the decision to lose the weight. At 262, when she started her weight loss journey, she loved her body and the way she looked. However, she realized that this was putting her in a very high risk category for diabetes and high blood pressure. A decision, she says, that has alienated some of her fans who looked to her as a symbol that being big is OK. She still thinks that being big is beautiful, but says that being healthy and alive is even better. Good job!

It never fails, whenever a black man (from the hood no less) is labeled a hero, reporters do this thing where they try to find dirt on the person who did the good deed. This time it backfired. Soon after Cleveland’s Charles Ramsey helped save three women trapped in a Ohio home for more than a decade, he was upheld in the community as a national hero. But his reputation was quickly tattered by the past. The Smoking Gun reported that Charles was a ‘repeat domestic abuser’ who had done time. But that was decades ago. Eventually someone apologized for reporting arbitrary information that in nature was not relevant to the actual news.
Cleveland TV station WEWS apologized … on their Facebook page about posting the report and called it a “poor judgment call.”
“We heard you. Wednesday night, we made a poor judgment call in posting a story about Charles Ramsey’s criminal record and how he’s since reformed. While the story was factually sound, the timing of it and publication of such information was not in good taste, and we regret it. Your comments prompted us to quickly remove the story from our website and Facebook page, but we know we can’t erase what we’ve already done. Ramsey is a hero for his actions, and we recognize that. Thank you so much for your feedback.”
Charles Ramsey is the hero who helped Amanda Berry escape after she had been held captive for 10 years. Amandy Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were rescued on Monday after being held against their will by Ariel Castro in a home not far from where they were each kidnapped many years ago. This is Charles Ramseys 911 Call (Warning: Language may be offensive to some listeners.)
“Today, Ramsey said he’s just glad the three women got out of captivity alive and rejects the “hero” label, AMEN! “
