Men Who Feel Actresses Don’t Make Good Wives Have Complex –Ebube Nwagbo

Curvy Nollywood actress Ebube Nwagbo has the following to say when interviewed recently..
Nollywood is not synonymous with failed marriages. It happens everywhere and nobody goes into marriage hoping to break out of it. It’s not a good thing for a marriage to break up. But we cannot dictate what happens in our lives. We do the best we can and leave the rest to God. Marriage is a union of two different people with different backgrounds. It is not easy at all. We just have to look up to God for his guidance. I am not single because I am an actress. That is not true. The fact that you are an actress is no reason why a man should not marry you. Acting is your job, just as other people have their own jobs. Maybe the men who feel actresses don’t make good wives have a complex, after all, many colleagues of mine are married. It is all about getting someone who will trust and believe in you, as well as appreciate what you do.

Celebrity Quote: Kate Winslet On Celine Dion’s ‘Titanic’ Song, "Makes Me Want to Throw Up".. Eww!

There is no love lost between Kate Winslet and Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On," the theme song to her 1997 blockbuster, "Titanic." The Oscar-winning actress was asked her thoughts on the inescapable track during promotion for the 3-D release of the iconic film and she didn't mince words.

"Like throwing up," she described to MTV matter-of-factly. "No, I shouldn't say that … No, actually, I do feel like throwing up. I wish I could say, 'Oh listen, everybody! It's the Celine Dion song!' But I don't. I just have to sit there, you know, kind of straight-faced with a massive internal eye roll."
Wow, wonder how Celine Dion will feel hearing this.. You wonder wetin concern me right? #OkBye

My Wife Engages In Adultery Under The Guise Of Attending Church Vigil

Mr Daniel Folorunsho, 43, on Thursday told a Grade ‘A’ Customary court in Ojo, Lagos that his wife was engaging in adultery, under the guise of attending church vigil. Daniel, who is resident in Oke-Afo village on the Lagos-Badagry Expressway, is seeking the dissolution of his 10-year-old marriage to his wife, Yemi, based on allegations of misconduct.

He said that he was shocked to see her as she had claimed to be heading for a vigil and he knew

Alicia Keys Turns Down Offer To Trace Family Roots On Grandmother's Insistence

It's been revealed Alicia Keys turned down the chance to trace her family's historical roots after her grandmother warned the star not to go through with it. Alicia was invited to take part in a TV series Finding Your Roots, in which an African-American historian Dr. Henry Louis Gates traces celebrities' family backgrounds. Chris Rock, Samuel L. Jackson and Condoleezza Rice have all appeared on the show.

However, Dr. Gates recently explained Alicia backed out of process when her grandmother warned the singer not to do it.

"Her African-American grandmother said ‘Baby, you can’t be in the series. I can’t tell you why, but you can’t be in the series.’"

Strange huh? Tongues are waggin' and the question on everybody's lips is... what could be in Alicia's past her grandmother doesn't want her to know? If you ask me tho, I don't think this should be forced, I bet some stubborn human will start searching to dig up dirt in the singer's life. I'm sure we've not heard the last on this.

There's A Lesson In This One For Us Girls, A Must Read.

A wife came home early and found her husband in their bedroom making love to a very attractive young woman. The wife was upset to say the least. “You are a disrespectful pig!” she cried. “How dare you do this to me! A faithful wife, the mother of your children! I’m leaving you. I want a divorce!” The husband replied, “Hang on just a minute love, so at least I can tell you what happened.” “Fine..., go ahead,” she sobbed, “but they’ll be the last words you’ll say to me!”

The husband began “Well, I was getting into the car to drive home, and this young lady here asked me for a lift. She looked so down and out and defenseless that I took pity on her and let her into the car. I noticed that she was very thin, not well dressed and very dirty. She told me that she hadn’t eaten for three days. So, in my compassion, I brought her home and warmed up the enchiladas I made for you last night, the ones you wouldn’t eat because you were afraid you’d put on weight. The

Ini Edo On Married Life And Having Babies

One of Nollywood's great actresses, Ini Edo came to limelight in 2000, and has over 50 movies to her credit. Beautiful, articulate and talented, the actress granted an interview recently and reveals the secret that binds her marriage to her US-based husband, Philip Ehinagwina. Here's an exerpt
Many people would be surprised, especially your critics, that Ini Edo’s marriage is waxing strong. What has been your staying power?
I have actually been able to hold on to my marriage. It depends on how you set your priorities and not get carried away by the whole fame thing. You should know where to be at the appropriate time and where not to be at all. I just create a balance between my career and my personal life.
My husband is based in the United States, but we see each other all the time. He just left Nigeria in January, and I should be with him in the US soon we shuttle. It is either he comes to Nigeria or I go over to the US. 
He knows that I am not a bad person, he knows me well enough not to bother about the stories, all he does is call me up to find out what is happening (laughs). Talking about the scandals, my husband knows me more than any other person. Sometimes, when they say things about me and we are together at such moments, he would look at me and say; are you the same person that people are talking about? He knows what I can do.
When asked when she will start having children.. **well, yea :D, Ini Edo hasthe following to say.. Continue after the jump

Girl Seeking Wealthy Husband Gets A Reply From CEO JP Morgan: A Very Interesting Read

A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:
Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?

I'm going to be honest of what I'm going to say here.

I'm 25 this year. I'm very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k annual salary or above.

You might say that I'm greedy, but an annual salary of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York.

My requirement is not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual salary? Are you all married?

I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry rich

Dayo Okeniyi's Character In "The Hunger Games" Questioned By Racist Remarks

I saw The Hunger Games, I thought it was very nice.. Everybody played their role outstandingly well. Katniss, lead actor (actress actually) is a beauty to behold, I loved her character in the movie and for the good job I heard she'll be earning an extra $1million.. Nicee.. Lenny Kravitz as her designer/costumier in the movie moved me so much I thought he was going to share a kiss with Katnis, I still wonder why they didn't fix a scene like that tho:D
So, back to Nigeria's Dayo Okeniyi, he made short cameo appearances but did a fantastic job,  was uberProud of the brother. While he was killed off towards the end of the movie, his roles were clear, he made #TheHungerGames!!! No mean feat that.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW - "The Hunger Games" beat all of the "Twilight Saga" movies and every single non-sequel ever with the third-biggest opening weekend of all time. The big-screen adaptation of the first novel in the massively popular young adult trilogy collected $155 million domestically, a figure that was just $3.4 million less than "The Dark Knight" opening in 2008. ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2" is still #1 with $169.1 million). Audiences gave the movie a CinemaScore of "A."

The racial slurs? Ok, here it is and how Yahoo! reported it..

Controversial Piece: "Of Sacrifices And Gods"

SOURCE - Back in the old days, offerings brought to the temple of a deity automatically became the property of the deity’s priest. This is so because by their very nature, deities do not have bodies requiring sustenance. They do not eat, drink, or sleep. They do not require houses or clothes, or money.

Therefore, when you brought a goat to the shrine, the priest automatically knew that there would be no shortage of goat meat around the house for a while. And, seeing as it was such a sweet deal, no priest was actually going to tell you that his god didn’t need your goats or yams or cowries. Or that his god really didn’t exist and couldn’t make it rain no matter how many cows and chickens were

"Why Nigeria Will Not Be Great Anytime Soon, Part 1 - Chris Ehidero

SOURCE - Let me begin with a confession: For a very long time, I was the poster child for all forms of optimism about Nigeria, often in extreme measures. I was the one who refused to move abroad when my brothers did so. I was the one who turned down two opportunities to do postgraduate studies abroad, believing that my mission in life can be fulfilled here and I’d rather do my PG studies here. Rallies, protests etc have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Of course I knew we had many issues we were not paying attention to, nonetheless, I was sure we would pull through somehow. I’m no longer that person; I no longer believe that Nigeria will be great anytime soon.

In recent times, I have begun paying a little more attention to how countries achieve greatness. It’s been an eye-opener in many ways, and I have
