A California couple?s dream vacation has been turned into a nightmare that they can?t escape.
Brian and Shimeaka Hodges of Bakersfield, California, are now stuck in Mexico after his horrifying zip lining accident on July 20.
The couple and their friends went to Cabo San Lucas to celebrate their anniversary and Shimeaka?s birthday. Having taken in a few days of sun, sand and great food, they decided to try something new with zip lining adventure at Wild Canyon Zip Lines. The park designates itself as the safest course in the area, but Brian?s friend noticed something very risky about Brian?s line.
“I could see he’s too close, way too close,” Calvin Black told 23 ABC News, adding that Brian?s cord was about 20 feet out from the side of a mountain. That distance wasn?t far enough to keep Brian from being thrown into the rock wall at 40 mph when a strong wind…

At the time of this report, the Orange County (Fla.) Sheriffs Department stated that no charges will be filed Friday against the Daytona Beach, Fla. father who beat a man unconscious after allegedly catching him raping his 11-year-old son, according to KTLA 5 News.
Raymond Frolander, 18, who reportedly admitted to sexually assaulting the man’s son, is still being held without bond inside the Orange County Jail. As Atlanta Daily World reported before, Frolander was considered a close family friend and was entrusted to look after the 11-year-old boy for the past three years until he was literally caught with his pants down inside the boy’s bedroom by the father who had come home unexpectedly.
This is what Frolander looked like before the vicious beating that nearly took his life:

I decided to name my blog “Stories from the Belly” for a few reasons. The first was that I wanted to tell the kinds of stories about being a woman that aren’t often shared out loud—true tales that might feel too shameful or painful or embarassing to tell anyone. Instead, a woman might store these stories deep within, locking them inside her body and forgetting they are even there.
I’d buried these types of stories in my belly for years. I didn’t even know that’s where I put them until I took a writing class with poet Jack Grapes more than ten years ago. Jack teaches students how to access the memories that we’ve buried in our gut, right in the belly.
I grew up having very strong feelings about this part of my body. My belly, like the earth, has always been round, never flat. Even when I’ve placed…

Take it from Monique and Jennifer Hudson, fit is the new sexy.
Such is the case for Grammy nominated and BET Award Best Gospel Artist winner, Tamela Mann.
The vocal powerhouse talks to the TJMS about her weight loss and new fitness routine that she shares with her husband David and her new BET reality show, “Meet The Manns”.
“I’ve lost over 100 lbs. I used to be a 30/32 and now I’m at an 18/20,” she says.
So what’s a girl to do with all those clothes that no longer fit?
“I already gave them away. Some to people I know and others I don’t. A lot of stuff I had made, so it’s been a blessing. I just want to be able to go any place and find something. My goal is a size 14,” she says.
Check out a few photos of Tamela…
