This past Thursday the honorable Judge Glenda Hatchett was the guest speaker at Morehouse College's Crown Forum. Hatchett, a well known judge and positive figure in today's society, addressed the Men of Morehouse in terms of making us better. No sooner than she stepped to the podium to speak, Hatchett let us know that we belonged to her, and that she expected nothing but the best from us. This struck home for every male sitting in the audience. I even saw one of my fellow brothers in tears from Hatchett's act of concern. As a second year student at Morehouse College, I can truly say that she is thus far the best speaker we've yet to have. She had no problem keeping it real with us, and informing us that the world we live in is a cruel one, and we must take it on, being prepared to the fullest. As a black woman growing up in Atlanta, Ga. minutes away from our profound institution, Hatchett also told us her rise to fame. An Emory University graduate to say the least. Hatchett truly represents what great things will come from those who continue on the right path. After her inspirational speech to the brothers of Morehouse, there was a small luncheon in her honor were representatives of the Black Tie Affair were also in attendance. She made sure she got around to each and every brother, dropping off even more encouraging words in the spirits of those who hungered for it. In the up coming future I look forward to working with Judge Hatchett and her new law program at Emory University. She inspires us all to be better than we were yesterday, and for that here at the Black Tie Affair we would like to send our love to her.

The latest news on Khloe Kardashian and her marriage to NBA player Lamar Odom has had news waves blowing up!. Last week it was official and ever since then these two have not been out of the public eye. Rumors have speculated that this is all a publicity stunt for Kardashian and that no official prenuptial agreement has been issued from the Odom camp. Whatever the case may be, Khloe walked down the isle in her one of a kind Vera Wang wedding dress; with bridesmaids including sisters Kim and Kourtney. Also featured was bff Lauren London and LaLa Vasquez. The Kardashian/Odom wedding was truly the IT place to be in Beverly Hills last week. It almost was as hot as Jay-Z and Beyonce's. Mom-iger Kris Jenner sold the official wedding pics for a couple million dollars to OK magazine, who were not allowed to leak any of them until the issued hit news stands. E! was also in effect filming the entire ceremony for the next season of the Kardashian show. Talk about exclusive! But yesterday the season finale of "Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami" aired and it was sad to see the girls leave MIA. On the other hand the trailer for the next season of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" also aired, and if you missed it, all i can tell you is to make sure in December you have your eyes glued to the television. This season the Kardashians wild out, they show everything leading up to Khloe's wedding, and of course the drama we love. Kourtney goes through her pregnancy, Khloe gets married, and Kim......well they had to keep us in suspense. We have to tune in to see exactly what Kim will do.
This past weekend as two of my good friends and I hit the streets of Atlanta about 2:00 am to get some food. One of my friends twitter buzzed out of control with a ton of R.I.P AJ tweets. Curious on exactly who this AJ was he turned to me and asked. Being the entertainment lover I am there were only about two famous AJ's I knew of. Within the next few minutes, my phone went off like crazy informing me that the ex-fiancee of Kandi from the Real Housewives of Atlanta , was just stabbed and beaten to death at the local strip club "Body Tap" here in Atlanta. This was a supreme shocker for me, I could only imagine how Kandi and the children are taking this. Our hearts go out to the entire family. When will people get the message about violence, we cant keep loosing people of this craziness. This incident is said to be all over a female AJ and the bartender at Body Tap were dating at the same time. Now how about them apples.
