112's Michael Keith Asks "When Is It Enough?"

Let me start this column off by making the following statement... "I am not a quitter"

I don't subscribe to quitting, I don't believe in quitting. The word makes the very core of my being shutter with utter disgust. However, I am not oblivious to the notion of making a strategic exit when the opportunity presents itself. And there is no greater opportunity than when you give your all to your significant other, and there's little if any reciprocity.

Knowing when to say when is vital to your well-being. However not knowing when to throw in the proverbial towel can be devastating. Leading to years of stress and therapy bills. Many of our most brilliant minds in military history knew when to beat a hasty retreat until a better opportunity presented itself. There were others of course who refused this course of action and soon realized how real it can get. Remember what happened at "The Battle of the Little Bighorn"? That's Custer's last stand for all you non history buffs.
All of this can be avoided if you start making more decisions using your head and not your heart. Now I realize many of you readers believe that you're a "fixer" but going all Olivia Pope on your significant who's unwilling to change their ways for the betterment of your relationship isn't worth your time and effort.

You see, a relationship is about change...an evolution of you and your significant other to benefit the both of you equally. Now I like the sound of that...Sadly though, many of us settle for a lifetime disappointments and unhappiness because of some silly notion that you're considered a "Quitter" if you decide the best thing for you to do leave the relationship and start all over after you've exhausted every effort to make it work. That's not a quitter....that my friends, is someone who's tired of the BS and is ready to find someone worthy of their love!

Do yourself a favor...and learn when to say when. Don't be defiant and turn a blind eye to the truth by staying in a situation that, you know at some point, is going to end badly.

Remember what happened to Custer?...I'm just saying ---Michael Keith (@Michaelkeith112)

Felicity Huffman Sentenced To 14 Days In Prison For College Admissions Scandal

Felicity Huffman was sentenced Friday afternoon (Sept. 13) to 14 days in prison, CNN reports. Judge Indira Talwani also tacked a $30,000 fine and 250 hours of community service onto Huffman's sentence. Additionally, she faces one year of supervised release.

“I am deeply ashamed of what I have done,” Huffman reportedly said to the judge. “At the end of the day I had a choice to make. I could have said 'no.'”

The 56-year-old also shared a conversation she had with her daughter concerning the college admission scandal. Huffman revealed that her daughter said, “I don’t know who you are anymore mom? Why didn’t you think I could do it on my own?” Huffman's child with actor William H. Macy has a learning disability, which prompted Huffman to engage in the scam in an effort to allot more time for her to take the SATs.

“I felt an urgency which built to a sense of panic that there was this huge obstacle in the way that needed to be fixed for my daughter’s sake,” she wrote in a previous statement. “As warped as this sounds now, I honestly began to feel that maybe I would be a bad mother if I didn’t do what Mr. Singer was suggesting.”

Huffman will report to prison in six weeks. In April 2019, the actress pled guilty to paying $15,000 to William "Rick" Singer to increase her daughter's SAT scores.

Further details for this story are pending.

Stance Socks Celebrates 'Ready To Die' Anniversary With Sweet Chick Collaboration

Friday (Sept. 13) marks the 25th anniversary of The Notorious B.I.G.'s masterpiece debut Ready To Die, and Stance sock company teamed up with hip-hop elite and friends of Biggie to celebrate the occasion.

On Thursday (Sept. 12) evening, Stance hosted a party at Nas' chicken and waffles restaurant Sweet Chick in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Guests were served cocktails and food themed after Biggie's lyrics (i.e. "escargot, my car go" and "a t-bone steak, cheese eggs"), while enjoying music spun by Statik Selektah, who unveiled a Jadakiss verse over Biggie's "Mo Money Mo Problems" that he says was from the song's original sessions. Attendees of the party included DJ Clark Kent, CJ Fly and Termanology, along with performances by Junior M.A.F.I.A. member Lil Cease and Tek of Smif-N-Wessun.

The evening also revealed a Stance and Sweet Chick "Sweet Chick Down To My Socks" collaborative sock, with a design similar to Biggie's beloved Coogi sweaters. The sock will be sold exclusively at Sweet Chick locations and online for $16.

Sept. 13 also marks a reissue of Ready To Die, with limited edition packaging, liner notes by journalist and author Kathy Iandoli, never-before-seen photos, and stories by producers Easy Mo Bee and Chucky Thompson.
