Thien Thanh Thi Nguyen, better known by her stage names Tila Tequila, Tila Nguyen and Miss Tila, was once a model, television personality, singer, songwriter, actress, writer and blogger. She first gained Her Celebrity status for her active presence on social networking websites. After becoming the most popular person on Myspace, Tequila was offered to star in her own reality television show. Her bisexual-themed dating show, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila (2007), lastedfor two seasons and became MTV’s second highest-rated series premiere of that year.

The Houston, Texas native,  moved to Los Angeles in 2001 to pursue a modeling career. After being featured in numerous men’s magazines (including Playboy, Stuff and Maxim), she made her reality television debut on the VH1 show Surviving Nugent (2003).

Well, sometimes good things must come to an end as we recently discovered, Tila applied for a employment at Target, the retail store. If she have ran through all of her reality coins already, then that would explain everything.

Hopefully she lands the job!

2016 Snow Blizzard In Full Effect

Friday night brought along the whitest winter that we’ve ever seen. The entire east coast is under massive amounts of snow.

Not only did the east coast area get buried but the south got a little bit of it too. In states such as New York, Maryland and Philadelphia, the residents are actually diving in and are completely buried to the point where you can’t see them.

Since majority of the citizens are undoubtedly snowed in, they decided to make the best out of a terrifying situation by participating in the snow challenge.

We have all literally been laughing out loud at the non-stop videos being posted on social media. The videos vary from jumping off roofs into the snow to hilarious swim competitions. Someone even captured a panda bear rolling around enjoying himself.

The vehicles are completely covered and one resident captured a photo of the snow way past the knob on the door, which is taller than many people. It’s quite unbelievable at this point but its great that they’re having fun!

Keshia Knight Pulliam and Ed Hartwell got engaged and quickly walked down the aisle. The couple got married in a little over 20 days.

Big Tigger threw accusations out telling everyone that the new couple may have already been married when the world found out about the engagement. Maybe he was telling the truth after all.

Keshia took to Instagram to share a shocking photo of the couple kissing taken during their wedding ceremony with the caption: The most AMAZING day of our life!!! New “Kandidly Keshia” available on play.it/Keshia. Listen as we share our magical wedding day. #IAmOfficiallyMrsHartwell

We wish the couple everlasting love but can’t help but wonder how the two moved so fast after Pulliam had recently been in a relationship with Big Tigger for so many years.

Wendell Pierce Built 75 Homes For His Community

Native of New Orleans actor and activist Wendell Pierce talks about how insurance companies discouraged poor and black families from returning to New Orleans after Katrina by refusing to honor homeowner policies. Pierce, whose great-grandfather came to New Orleans as a slave in the 1800s, talks about how Allstate gave his parents just $400 after they paid premiums for 50 years. Pierce also writes about his family in his new book, “The Wind in the Reeds: A Storm, a Play, and the City That Would Not Be Broken.”

In 2005, when Katrina shockingly destroyed his old neighborhood, he returned to Pontchartrain Park to revitalize the neighborhood and has built 75 new homes and plans on doubling that number.

WENDELL PIERCE: “I remember the greatest crime that ever happened, I think, was 10 years ago, when none of the large insurance companies honored the homeowner policies. My parents paid Allstate for 50 years, when they moved into Pontchartrain Park in 1955 up to the day we evacuated, and we’re still paying after the flood, because my mother said it can burn down at any time. And for those 50 years of premiums, they received $400. They said, “That’s all we’re going to pay.” There was a lawsuit, a class-action lawsuit, years later that everyone participated in to try to get some sort of mediation, and we lost the class-action suit. So, all of those insurance companies that sold insurance to my parents for years, saying that “You will be made whole. Have some flood insurance, and along with your homeowners’ insurance, when you put them together, you will be made whole,” they only gave them $400 after 50 years of paying premiums.”

“It is the African-American aesthetic: in spite of the challenge, in spite of the oppression, I will survive. And that’s on display in New Orleans, and that’s the reason 10 years after the fact, we are back to where we are.”
