The Eldrick Woods Relationship Blog

I would be more than happy to take all the credit for coming up with this blog, but that wouldn’t be quite accurate. There must be some credit given to Tiger Woods.

Of course I don’t know Tiger Woods personally, but let’s face it, at the end of 2009, we all got to know Tiger Woods better than we know some of our family; his wife too. Once the cat got out the bag that Tiger Woods — one of the world’s most well-known athletes and the richest — did what he did with women not named “Tiger Woods’ wife”, everyone — our friends, parents, sisters, cousins, aunts, uncles — started at least one conversation with either, “Well, if I was Tiger I would’ve…” or “Well, if I was Tiger Woods’ wife, I would…” Even at the VIBE offices, we had so many conversations about Tiger, one would think we were the Harlem headquarters for ESPN. Except we weren’t talking about Tiger’s golf game, we were of course talking about his relationship(s).

Why? Not because we’re editors and writers paid to talk about the popular news of the day. Garbage men don’t get paid to talk about such things, and even they were discussing Tiger Woods. No, the reason we talked about Tiger Woods, the reason any of us talk about any celebrity affair, legit or otherwise, is because when it comes to matters of the heart —love, sex, liking someone, breaking up with someone — everyone, no matter their status, can relate to it.

Yes, this is a relationship blog, but not like others you have ever read. No I won’t dish out juicy gossip, echoing the he-said-she-said soundboard of other gossip blogs. No I won’t put on my Steve Harvey hat; coaching women on how to act like a lady and think like a man. No, I won’t be writing about my own love life, but for those who are interested in such a thing, feel free to check out the blog I host on my own time here.

This blog takes the news we read about celebrity relationships and uses it to start a discussion on relationships in general. Once a week, I will find something like the recent reports Beyoncé is taking a break from fame, and figure out a way to spin it into a discussion on say women who choose to put their career on hold for the sake of family and why Jay-Z, her husband, hasn’t gone on record to say he will be doing the same thing. After all he’s rich enough to, and yet, he seems to continue to play the role most husbands play, continuing to work while his wife stays at home.

True, I don’t know the details of their lives as a married couple at all, but none of us do, and yet, a lot of us will continue to say, “Well, if I was Beyoncé,” or “Well, if I was Jay-Z”.

And for those who still aren’t clear, well, I’ll let Alicia tell it.

Cardi B Says Jussie Smollett May Have "F**ked Up Black History Month"

Many people are split on the alleged attack on Jussie Smollett. The Empire actor claims he was attacked by two MAGA supporters in late-January, who doused him in an unidentified liquid while shouting racial and homophobic slurs at him.

Cardi B, who is often vocal about issues in society on her social media platforms, spoke out against the reports that Smollett potentially orchestrated the attack.

"I'm really disappointed in him," she said in an Instagram Live video. "I feel like he f**ked up Black History Month, bro. Like, damn. I'm not gonna say, yet. Until he say it out his mouth that it was fake and the sh*t was staged, I don't want to completely blame him, because somebody I was talking to they said police in Chicago are racists..."

She continues by stating that there's a possibility that the police may be trying to frame the actor, who maintains his innocence amidst damning reports. However, she said that it's "f**ked up" if he is indeed lying to the public.

"Then you gave Donald Trump immunity to f**kin' laugh at n***as and sh*t. Make mothaf**kas look bad," she concluded.

Reports Emerge Claiming Jussie Smollett "Rehearsed" Alleged Attack

TMZ reports that Empire actor Jussie Smollett, who claimed in late-January that he was attacked by MAGA supporters, reportedly rehearsed the alleged assault with the two men involved. According to prosecutors, his alleged racial and homophobic attack will be headed to a grand jury next week.

Per the site, "Abel and Ola Osundairo told cops they got in a car with Jussie and scouted a location, settling on the one right outside the actor's apartment. The brothers said Jussie chose the spot because he believed a camera would have captured the action."

The sources close the the situation said that Jussie reportedly wanted to make the attack a "physical thing," but did not want to be seriously injured. While Jussie left the scene with just a scratch, the brothers- who are Nigerian, and not white- did not know they left a mark on him, as that's not what they had rehearsed.

"On the night Jussie says he was attacked, the brothers claim they showed up at the scene but were extremely nervous because, just as they played out the scene, a car drove by and they were worried they'd be ID'd," the site continues.

Smollett released a statement through representatives vehemently denying the allegations that he orchestrated the attack, maintaining his original story.

Before their spinoff Kenan and Kel, the two were golden on All That with skits joint skits like Good Burger and solo characters Pierre Escargot and Repairman.

So far, things seemed to be going Thompson's way. Former All That alum  Danny Tamberelli also told Page Six he was thrilled to hear about the revival.
