Let’s get ready to rumble! OK, maybe wrong sport, but the Olympic Games kick off this weekend from London, England. Team USA is traditionally strong in sports like basketball, swimming and track and field, so those sports are generally the most watched. http://www.blackamericaweb.com/entertainment/entertainment-news/what-weekend-nikki-woods  

I found this on one of the many Web sites I haunt: The average woman would give up relations for 15 months for a closet full of brand new clothes. Blink, then read it again. I’ll even bold and all-caps it to make it a little bit easier. THE AVERAGE WOMAN WOULD GIVE UP RELATIONS FOR 15 […]

Last Sunday, my kids and I prepared our favorite meals and snacks and got ready to party.  If you didn’t know any better, you might have thought were having a Super Bowl Party one week early. http://www.blackamericaweb.com/?q=blog_inner/36869/6546626/Nikki_Woods


The highly anticipated movie “Red Tails” hits theatres this Friday, Jan. 20th.  “Red Tails” stars Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard and Ne-Yo, among others, and tells the real-life account of the Tuskegee Airmen, an all-black World War II fighter pilot squad. http://www.blackamericaweb.com/?q=blog_inner/36335/6546626/Nikki_Woods

There tends to be a well-meaning sweetness in the lies parents tell their kids, which is a very good thing, since we seem to tell a lot of them. Yes, that indecipherable crayon scribble looks exactly like Grandma. http://www.blackamericaweb.com/?q=blog_inner/33497/6546626/Nikki_Woods

“What’s the worse that can happen?” When you start off any venture with that sentence at the forefront, you’re usually in for an adventure at best and an emotional rollercoaster at worst.  When my co-host and I decided to do a “Mamas Gone Wild” episode about sex with your ex, we knew on some levels […]

So, a new study has come out that says more unwed parents are living together. According to the stats from the National Marriage Project, unwed couples who have had children together have increased 12-fold since 1970.  http://www.blackamericaweb.com/?q=blog_inner/31619/6546626/Nikki_Woods

According to a recent story, more women in New York City are substituting alcohol and prescription meds for weed. And it turns out a lot of these women are moms in need of finding new ways to just to make it through the day. http://www.blackamericaweb.com/?q=blog_inner/29935/6546626/Nikki_Woods
