MURPHY'S LAW: Hey, Tiger, Shaq, Jesse...Thanks!

The following conversation took place at an undisclosed time and location….

 Murph: Why do men cheat?

Woman: I honestly don’t believe it’s in a men’s biological nature to be faithful. It goes with the whole idea when women get pregnant—we are just that…pregnant. But men can have as many kids as they want to. Men are wired to spread their seeds. It has nothing to do with immaturity…it’s just innate.

Murph: Does the same apply to men who happen to be celebrities?

Woman: [Laughs] Yeah. I just think they have more opportunities to cheat.

Pretty sobering stuff, huh? Or maybe you’ve already come to the same straight-no-chaser conclusion. Still, my anonymous female colleague’s breakdown of the male species’ psyche when it comes to the opposite sex may be a little too real for some folks to swallow. The well-worn mantra that all men are dogs is a heavy cross to bear for all dudes. Even the most faithful of men are profiled as Lothario’s-in-waiting. It’s hard out here for a pimp  monogamous man. And more recent figures say we are doomed to cheat. According to relationship expert M. Gary Neuman (Just our luck, he’s co-signed by Oprah…Where’s Stedman when you need him?), an estimated 1 in 2.7 men will be unfaithful. Wow. It’s like that?

Which is why I have some advice for all of you men receiving  ‘late night creep’ phone texts from women not named your girlfriend or wife. Trust me, sooner or later your significant other will uncover your seedy dalliances. And when she does, just remember you have the perfect excuse: WHAT ABOUT TIGER? It’s quite simple, really. Male celebrity cheaters make the infidelities of mortal 9 to 5 cats look like amateur hour. Now if you are worried this goes against the ‘Man Code,’ fear not. Section 7, paragraph 12 clearly states that a man is allowed to dry snitch on a fellow male only if he’s not in the same tax bracket (AKA—The Kobe Bryant Rule; There’s also the Lisa Raye Rule for women…but that’s another blog).

This year alone has been a ridiculously epic run on the cheating front. So your girl ran your credit card and found out that your January “business” meeting in Las Vegas wasn’t business at all? Just tell her Tiger Woods paid off now-infamous party girl Rachel Uchitel $10 million in a deal that's being described as an "airtight confidentiality agreement." And when he wasn't busy having marathon threesomes with porn stars, cocktail waitresses, party girls, golf groupies (who knew?), Tiger was literally taking it to the house. Just tell wifey that Vanity Fair recently aired out the best golfer in the world with wild insider news that Woods took one of his roster of mistresses back to the Florida mansion he shares with wife Elin, and had sex with the woman in the couple’s living room and kitchen floor amid “fine porcelain tile and brushed stainless-steel appliances.” So your woman smelled Burberry perfume on your shirt, but she uses Jean Paul Gaultier? Just sit your better half down and explain how a married Shaquille O’Neal had a live-in-stripper crashing out at his Cleveland Mansion or the new revelation that he frequently texted side piece Vanessa Lopez while in the same room as his wife Shauni and their kids.

But what happens if your slip up goes nuclear when your girl/wife catches you in bed with another woman? Stay calm and make the case that a stint in a sex rehabilitation clinic of her choosing is in order (health care should cover it, right?) After all, motorcycle enthusiast and Sandra Bullock’s ballsy husband Jesse James is the most recent celebrity to check into such a facility (surprise!) after being busted for his inability to keep it in his pants. Your girl should also be reminded that at least you are not out there dressing up as Hitler and having sex with tatted-up Nazi sympathizers named Bombshell [Side note: Yo Sandy, this is what happens when you jump the broom with a “bad boy” who was once married to a porn star. Just saying…]

Yes, the names even go beyond VIBE’s most Infamous Celebrity Cheaters [SEE LIST!]. From the Rolling Stones’ legendary philanderer Mick Jagger to the more private player Denzel Washington, there’s plenty of salacious material to draw from when you find yourself caught up.

Or you could just simply read your partner this thought-provoking gem:

Murph: Do you think it comes down to men just being assholes?

Woman: No. There’s no good vs. evil when it comes to women and men. I think most people, especially men, find it hard to be with one person for the rest of their life. There’s a way people want society to be and then the way things really are.

G Herbo’s Ex Ari Details Alleged Abuse: “I Have A Black Eye”

G Herbo was arrested on Wednesday (April 17) for battery against his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child. Now, Ariana Fletcher is speaking up about the alleged incident that led to his arrest.

Fletcher shared her story on Instagram on Thursday (April 18). “He kicked my door down to get in my house because I wouldn’t let him in, beat the f**k out of me front of my son,” she alleged. “Then he took my son outside to his friends and had them drive off with my son, hid all my knives in my house, broke my phone and locked me inside and beat the f**k out of me again (choked me, punched me in my face and all over my body, dragged me outside on the concrete by my hair after his friends drove off with my son, took me in the house and continued beating me).”

She also stated that she has physical signs of the abuse. “He wrecked my whole house, broke all type of sh*t,” she continued. “I have a black eye, my body scraped up from being dragged outside, bruises and cuts all over my body… Please do’t speak on no old “relationship play fights’ cause this ain’t that’.”

It is unclear what triggered the alleged incident. Herbo is still in jail. His bond has been set at $2,000. Read Ari’s full statement below.

'It's About Time': Cypress Hill Receives Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

Cypress Hill doesn't always get the credit they deserve for their impact on hip-hop history, but they were honored forever this week with a revered star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

With a career of 30 years, the legacy of the four-man group of B-Real, DJ Muggs, Sen Dog, and Eric Bobo (along with former member Mellow Man Ace) includes six platinum albums and 90s zeitgeist songs like "How I Could Just Kill A Man," "Insane In The Brain," and "Hand On The Pump." They released their self-titled debut in 1991 and the chart-topping follow-up Black Sunday two years later,  and have continued creating ever since, releasing their ninth and latest album Elephants On Acid in September 2018. Cypress Hill are considered West Coast rap legends, and the first Latino rap group to have multiple gold and platinum records. Anchored by Muggs' gloomy, gritty production and B-Real's nasal, charismatic rhymes, Cypress Hill is as much a part of rap history as anyone.

The group's ceremony included speeches from Latino comedian George Lopez and fellow West Coast rap legend Xzibit, who said 'it's about time' before detailing the group's illustrious career.

Xzibit pointed out Cypress Hill not only brought Latino representation in an industry that largely lacked it, but that they were staunch marijuana advocates way before today's growing legalization.

"The Grammy-nominated group showed us stoned is indeed the way of the walk. Long before the days of legal dispensaries and medical marijuana, Cypress Hill were advocates of that sticky icky icky oooh wee!" Xzibit shared. "...Cypress Hill are pioneers in their own right. Their accomplishments and accolades reach deep in the roots and history books of hip-hop, and today is another chapter in that saga. Yo B-Real, Sen Dog, Muggs, Bobo: you are our Rolling Stones, Ungrateful Dead, you are the West Coast Public Enemy."

Lopez insisted that out of all the 2,600 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, "there are none more important than the one we're about to unveil for Cypress Hill. There's a lot of actors, there's a lot of comedians, there's a lot of entertainers who are on this (Walk of Fame). But there's only one cypress hill, the first latino hip-hop group. But to everyone who lives the American dream, not the last latino hip-hop group to ever be on the Hollywood Walk of Fame."

Michelle Obama On Beyonce's 'Homecoming' Film: "Girl, You Have Done It Again"

Beyoncé's Coachella documentary, Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé on Netflix has been met with praise from every corner of the earth since its April 17 release. The compliments are still rolling in and the most recent one that Queen Bey has received is from none other than former First Lady Michelle Obama.

"Girl, you have done it again," Obama said in a short clip. "Constantly raising the bar for us all, and doing it flawlessly. I'd say I'm surprised, but I know who you are. I've seen it up close and personal. Girl, you make me so proud and I love you."


From one queen to another, an open letter of congratulations from @MichelleObama to @Beyonce #BeyonceHomecoming

— Strong Black Lead (@strongblacklead) April 18, 2019

Obama and Beyoncé's friendship is one that the two have discussed publicly before and one that is admired by their respective supporters. Just a day after the release of Homecoming, Mrs. Carter penned a letter dedicated to Obama for her TIME 100 profile and the superstar only had kind words to say.

"I'm honored to know such a brilliant black woman who's spoken about the sacrifice it takes to balance her passions while remaining a supportive partner and mother, and now a best-selling author with Becoming," Beyonce wrote. "She has continued to open herself up, even if it meant being criticized. She has continued to be a portrait of grace."

Make sure to watch Queen Bey's documentary on Netflix, where she made history by being the first black female headliner of Coachella.
