Now Mara has become a beacon of hope for all moms who wish for breastfeeding to be normalized rather than sexualized.

A South Carolina high school student named Jaheim received a present from one of his classmates, and it brought him to tears!
_______________________________________
He had mentioned to his friend Sofi Cruz Turner that he needed new shoes and couldn’t afford a new pair. Sofi knew Jaheim didn’t want to sound “in need” and she just happened to get her first job, so she secretly saved up enough money to purchase him a new pair of shoes, socks, a shirt and a book bag!
_______________________________________
In a very touching video obtained by @CBSNews, Sofi presents Jaheim with the book bag. Once he realizes what was inside, you can see he becomes overwhelmed to the point of tears.
_______________________________________
Sofi shared this video to her Facebook and explained why she decided to surprise Jaheim. She says that they’ve known each other since 3rd grade, and describes him as someone who always turns in assignments on time, "never misses school, always helping the teacher out with stuff in class, and always being a happy human being."

"When giving him his stuff and watching him open his bag, all my emotions were coming out. Seeing him crying was very emotional because I could see that he didn’t know what to think," Sofi later added.

Model #WinnieHarlow recently visited our good sis #AndyCohen over at #WWHL and received a fan question about when she knew she “made it.” That prompted Andy to give a brief rundown of her success-to-date noting that she really blew up after appearing on #ANTM.
_______________________________________
Winnie didn’t necessarily agree and explained that her success came after the show. In fact, she doesn’t believe it actually helped her career and said that being on #ANTM is more of a reality show. "[My success] started after the show, 'cause that really didn't do anything for my career...which, it doesn't do anything for any model's career, realistically," she said.
_______________________________________
So, how exactly did Winnie get discovered, then? 🤔 Well, she chops it up to a photographer hitting her up after he saw some pictures online. She told Andy, "A photographer from London hit me up—major photographer Nick Knight—and he was like, 'Hey, I've seen your photos online, and I want to do a shoot with you.' It went viral, and I got campaigns from there, and it hasn't stopped since."

Winnie later explained that she went on the show, because she thought that it was a great platform to begin a career. "I thought, 'That's going to be a career starter.' But it was really a reality TV show. That's not—(View more at TheShadeRoom.Com!) 📸: @bravowwhl

After #TristanThompson’s bombshell cheating scandal broke the internet last month, it appears as though he is a changed man. He sat down with the @RoadTrippin podcast and gave a little insight into fatherhood with both baby True, and his son Prince with ex fiancée, #JordanCraig!
_______________________________________
Co-host Allie asked how True was doing and Thompson said, “She's doing good.” Then, she added, “Let's not forget about Prince!” the 17-month old son he shares with ex fiancée Jordan. “Yeah, of course, Prince is getting big, jumping on a little trampoline,” he said.

“And baby True is eating, sleeping and, uh, s**ttin'. That's all they do. That's all they do.“ He added, “She has a full head of hair. She has green eyes. This is the first girl Thompson, female Thompson, so it’s huge.”

The NBA player went on to open up about how there are emotional differences to becoming a father to a little boy versus a little girl.

“I think with a girl, you’re just so much more emotionally like… with a boy, it’s just like, ‘Hey man, you’ll be all right man. Stop crying,'” he explained. “But [with True], it’s like, ‘True, it’s gonna—(View more at TheShadeRoom.Com!) 📸: @gettyimages

Chile, #ChrisBosh has been in a custody battle with his baby mama #AllisonMathis for years y’all. The latest development in their custody battle is Chris believes that she is reportedly falsifying documents in an attempt to commit fraud. On the other hand, Allison has accused Chris of breaching the parenting agreement they set in place back in 2014.
_______________________________________
The agreement stated if Chris were to move more than three hours away, then he and Allison would need to come together to discuss a visitation plan for their daughter Trinity. Now that Bosh lives in Los Angeles, the little girl must travel 5 hours each way by plane and Allison argues that the extended travel will affect her studies and overall well-being.
_______________________________________
Allison wants Chris to cough up $67,000 in attorney's fees, but the NBA player isn't going down without a fight! According to documents obtained by the @Blast, Chris' legal team says: “Over the last seven years, the Mother and her counsel have submitted fraudulent or grossly inaccurate billing statements in support of her claim for attorney’s fees.”

#MacMiller was arrested last Thursday after being caught driving drunk. He struck a curb and hit an electrical pole while there were two other passengers in the car with him.
_______________________________________
Contrary to reports, a source tells us that Miller didn’t flee the scene after the crash. He simply went home, because paparazzi was following his car after the crash. He just didnt want to be on camera so his friend stayed behind to give a full statement to police. Mac’s team is who actually called the cops from his home when he got there.

New details about this case have been released including his exceedingly high blood alcohol level! As we know, the legal limit is .08 BAL, but according to @TMZ_Tv, this dude blew a .15!

#KeyshiaKnightPulliam’s ex #EdHartwell is attempting to get a new custody trial for their 1-year-old daughter. Hartwell claims that Pulliam took the little girl out of state with her to support #BillCosby at his sexual assault trial, and that it cut into his scheduled parenting time.
_______________________________________
In documents obtained by @Blast, Hartwell was ordered to pay $3,007 a month in child support, and ordered not to take oxycodone or anti-depressants while driving with his daughter. However, the judge noted that Hartwell didn’t exercise his visitation rights during most of his scheduled visitation.
_______________________________________
The newly filed documents state that Pulliam allegedly denied Hartwell visitation on several other occasions including the 8 week’s she filmed #CelebrityBigBrother. Hartwell claims that Pulliam would also randomly change the visitation location making it difficult for him to see their daughter. For all of these reasons, Hartwell believes he deserves at least joint physical custody of their daughter.

A few black celebrities have expressed their disappointment in #KanyeWest’s recent slavery comments. Rapper #Eve is the latest to do so and she took some time to address why she is DONE with Kanye on #TheTalk yesterday!

“Every time I watch these clips, I get emotional… it is so disrespectful,” Eve began. “I can’t understand how a black man that was born on the south side of Chicago can have these ideas. I can’t understand… his mother, may she rest in peace, was an African-American Studies professor. I cannot understand this.”

Eve continued, “You want to be a free-thinker, you want to be thought-provoking, you cannot have these ideas without facts to back them up. Slavery is a fact. Slavery is part of our history… we cannot forget it… we are still feeling the effects of slavery within our community, within our culture. It hurts me.

One of the most recent publicized instances of racism towards Latinos in America has happened in Illinois. Mia Irizarry was minding her business when a man came up to her to make a comment about her shirt. It was a Puerto Rican flag and he told her that “wasn’t American”…even though Puerto Rico is a United States territory.
_______________________________________
Irizarry recorded the exchange and posted it on Facebook. “You should not be wearing that in the United States of America,” the man said. “Are you a citizen? Are you a United States citizen?” Irizarry then educated the man that Puerto Rico is part of the U.S. and then asked an officer to help her. “I am renting this area and he's harassing me about the shirt that I'm wearing,” she said.
_______________________________________
She later pleaded with the officer again, “Officer, I feel entirely uncomfortable, can you remove...please officer.” He ended up walking away and didn’t help her. Meanwhile, Irizarry’s harasser continued to bother her, saying, “You're not American, if you were American you wouldn't wear that. You know that right?” _______________________________________

#RitaOra dropped a new song called ‘Girls’ this week and it features #CardiB, #CharlieXCX and #BeneRexha. The song is about being bisexual and is climbing the charts overseas, but singer #Kehlani believes that the song is more problematic than progressive and she explained why in a series of tweets.

“[I] hate to be THAT guy, but there were many awkward slurs, quotes, and moments that were like 'word? word,'" she tweeted.

Jefferson Police Detective Jay Parker tells @11Alive that the patient had just suffered a stroke and the three ladies were told to monitor the patient while they awaited the hospice nurse. Instead of actually caring for the patient, the ladies recorded SnapChat videos while still inside the room and even called it “The End.” The patient has since died.

#PuertoRico has not been able to bounce back since #HurricaneMaria struck the island and caused an estimated $100 billion in damages back in September. Now, it will be much harder for the island to recover as the government has proposed a plan to eliminate $72 billion in debt while trying to claw its way out of an 11-year long recession and restore power to more than 30,000 people affected by Hurricane Maria.

The budget cuts will bring pension cuts, less hurricane relief, and about 280 school closures. Thousands of teachers, students, union workers and retirees protested in front of the capital yesterday for annual #MayDay protests. According to @LATimes, the protest was peaceful until a much younger group of protesters began to clash with police in the #HatoRey district. They threw rocks at them while the police sprayed rubber bullets into the crowd and fired tear gas. Several people were arrested after setting a palm tree on fire.

Roommates, we just caught wind of a hotel down in New Orleans that’s dripping in #BlackExcellence!! It’s called The Moor and, I mean, the name pretty much says it all! According to the founder of #HomageHospitality, Damon Lawrence (@Hauspitality), The Moor “pays homage to black culture’s finest moments both past and present.”
_______________________________________
He continued, “At The Moor, we decided to pay homage to Moorish culture mainly based on the architecture. The property naturally has beautiful archways and carved wood work that we really wanted to play up with our design aesthetic. Thus the name felt fitting for us. When we think about the Moors we think about their impact globally and it coincides with the multi-cultural history of New Orleans perfectly.” If y’all don’t know who Moors are then y’all should do your research! 👀
_______________________________________
Anywho, Lawrence first got into the hotel industry while attending #HowardUniversity and later began working at The Donovan House. “It was my first job ever and I told myself that I wanted to have my own brand one day, but I wanted it to pay homage to black culture as I had never seen it in the industry before. Black culture leads American culture and American culture leads global culture, so we think it’s time a hotel property reflected the—(View more at TheShadeRoom.Com) 📸: @StayHomage

As a single mother, I know first hand that nothing else has pushed me to become a better person than my son! It’s something about a mother’s love for her children that drives her to do the impossible! Such is the case for 33-year-old #Houston native #IeshiaChamps (@so_virtuous)! She just graduated from law school and posted an amazing photo including her five children holding signs that say things like, “I helped too!” and “We did it!” All of the success Iesha is experiencing has come after a series of unfortunate circumstances.
_______________________________________
Iesha and her sister bounced around from foster home-to-foster home after being removed from their drug-addicted mother’s home. Her sister got pregnant at 14, so she dropped out of high school to help raise the baby. Soon after, Iesha met the father of four of her children and they had their first child when she was 19. In 2009, Iesha went to church one day after her sister begged her to and she met a prophetess who told her to go back to school and get her GED so that she could fulfill her dream of being an attorney. She did, but nothing could prepare Iesha for the long road ahead.
_______________________________________
“During that same year — it was 2009 — I ended up having a house fire, I lost everything that I had. I got laid off from my job, the father of my children died of cancer while I was seven months pregnant, I literally tried to kill myself, and I ended up going back to get my GED,” Iesha tells @Yahoo. Iesha was 25 at the time and thought she was crazy for pressing onward, but she did! Iesha got accepted into law school, had her fifth baby and got married, only to be divorced a year later, but she stayed in school and here we are today!
_______________________________________
Iesha tells us that God made a way for her when she thought all was lost. She says that she finished in the top 15% of her class and that it was “nobody but God!” She also received $13,000 in scholarships and tells us that God sent her a study group that would come to her home and--read more at thesha

As of today, the US Department of Energy reports that 85.64% of customers (1,261,513) have been restored, however singer #Akon says that they should have had 100% restoration months ago and that he could have done it.

His organization Akon Lighting Africa has brought electricity to 14 African countries, so it had the capability to do the same for P.R. However, he says that his proposal was rejected. “We actually presented a program for Puerto Rico and we got rejected. We had the solution for Puerto Rico, clearly. We would have power up in less than 30 days, and they rejected us,” Akon told @TMZ_Tv.

Chile, #ChrisBosh has been in a custody battle with his baby mama #AllisonMathis for years y’all. The latest development in their custody battle is Chris believes that she is reportedly falsifying documents in an attempt to commit fraud. On the other hand, Allison has accused Chris of breaching the parenting agreement they set in place back in 2014.

The agreement stated if Chris were to move more than three hours away, then he and Allison would need to come together to discuss a visitation plan for their daughter Trinity. Now that Bosh lives in Los Angeles, the little girl must travel 5 hours each way by plane and Allison argues that the extended travel will affect her studies and overall well-being.

Hey, Roommates! So, many of you are aware of the fast-growing group of black female entrepreneurs in the U.S., right? Since these ladies are running this entrepreneurship game wouldn’t you think they need more representation on television?
_______________________________________
Well, the OWN Network has come through for us with a new show called “Mind Your Business with Mahisha” coming this summer. The show chronicles “Curls” haircare founder Mahisha Dellinger as she guides a group of black female entrepreneurs who desire to take their businesses to the next level. Mahisha is the very first black hair care CEO to have her own tv show and tells The Shade Room that the show is sort of a “cross between ‘Iyanla, Fix My Life’ and ‘Shark Tank’ but for black female business owners.” _______________________________________
When we asked Dellinger about her own personal journey through entrepreneurship and how it factored into how she constructed her new show, she said “Each One, Teach One” & “To Whom Much is Given, Much is Required” are the tenets by which I run my life.” She continued, “How can we stop the generational cycles of poverty that exist without the—(View more at TheShadeRoom.Com) 📸: @Mahisha_Dellinger

A quadruple double is when an athlete scores a two-digit number in four out of the following five categories: points scored, assists, rebounds, blocks, or steals. Hill scored 15 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and 10 steals last night and became the first female player in a D-1 league to reach this achievement since Arkansas State's Soja Tate did it in 1993! She is also the fourth female player to record a quadruple double in the division's history.

“It’s our goal to provide every family with an enjoyable and memorable visit, and we are proud to offer specialized services to guests with autism and other special needs,” officials wrote in a statement. The park has added “quiet rooms” that have “adjustable lighting and a comfortable seating area for guests to take a break.”

Roommates, I’m a new mom and the following story has me 🤯🤯🤯!!!
_______________________________________
So, an #AirForce woman from Virginia named #TiaFreeman (@TeenWitchTia) had the most unusual birthing experience any of us have probably ever heard of. She gave birth in a hotel room in #Istanbul, Turkey all by herself--with the help of YouTube, shoelaces and some knives. Here’s how it all went down!
_______________________________________
When Freeman found out that she was pregnant, she was already in her third trimester y’all! The type of birth control she takes made it so she didn’t have a cycle so that wasn’t an indicator for her. Even though she was late in her pregnancy, Freeman decided to go on her vacation in Istanbul as she had been planning it for months.
_______________________________________
Surprisingly, Freeman goes into labor ON THE PLANE and then had to suffer through getting out of customs. Meanwhile, no one around her spoke English and sis was NOT trying to have a baby in that airport. Thankfully, she made it to her hotel and the contractions were really kicking in so she began to Google tips on how to give birth to a baby! Freeman filled up a tub with water and got her towels together. Before she knew it, she had given birth to a beautiful baby boy!
_______________________________________
Next, Freeman had to look up how to cut her umbilical cord and found that the only thing she had to perform this procedure was a pair of shoe laces. She sterilized the laces and tied them in the appropriate places.
_______________________________________
The next daunting task would be figuring out how to get her newborn back to the United States safely. Basically, she had trouble at first because the airport staff thought she was a—(View more at TheShadeRoom.Com!) 📸: @TeenWitchTia

Y’all, NBA legend #ScottiePippen just threw a little shade at our good bruvas on the #GoldenStateWarriors! In an interview with @DimeMagazine, he says that the team is not an NBA dynasty and says #KevinDurant’s fairly recent addition is the reason why.
_______________________________________
“You say they’re on a dynasty run, but I don’t see it that way,” Pippen told @DimeMagazine. “They picked up probably the best player in the game after they won their first championship. I don’t consider that a dynasty run. They went out and got the best player in the game after they won their first championship and after they lost in the Finals defending their first title.”
_______________________________________
“I don’t see them as a dynasty, I think bringing Kevin Durant in really changed my respect as to where I rank this team going forward in terms of a dynasty.”
_______________________________________
Pippen went on to say that the Warriors haven’t done anything special in his eyes. He brought up the team winning 73 games during the 2015-2016 season, but failing to win the championship that year.
_______________________________________
“I thought they were organically built up until they went out and got Durant,” Pippen said. “And I think that was the change, but I don’t really see Golden State as a dynasty. Dynasties are teams that does things special, does things different.”
_______________________________________
He continued, “Even in the year that they won 73 games, they lost the title. So I can’t consider that part of their dynasty. That wasn’t a dynasty season. So then they came back the next season and won a title, so I can’t back track and say let’s—(View more at TheShadeRoom.Com!) 📸: @gettyimages

The remains of three film students who went missing in #Guadalajara last month have been found. According to @SFGate, 25-year-old Javier Salomón Aceves Gastélum and 20-year-olds Marco Garcia Francisco Avalos and 20-year-old Jesús Daniel Díaz, who are being referred to as #LosTresEstudiantesDeCine (the three film students), were mistaken for rival gang members while they were filming a project for class.
