Tia & Tamera Mowry‘s twin minds aren’t only bonded by ink, but by secrets as well.  Both of the fab sisters are remaining mum about the final baby name choice for Tia and Cory Hardrict‘s first kiddie, but The YBF squeezed a little hint out of them.


The twins are dropping hints when you read on…

30-year-old "The Game" actress Tia Mowry is due to deliver her baby boy this summer–July 3rd to be exact.  And she and hubby Cory aren’t wasting any time finalizing their first baby’s name.

On the recent Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon gold carpet, we caught up with Tia and her sis Tamera and squeezed out a hint.

The name will start with a "C"–in order to keep the family tradition of kids’ and dads’ names sharing the same first letter.  Tia and Tamera and their siblings share the "T" with their own dad Timothy.

Tia says they’re going to keep the name a secret until baby comes. 

Congrats again to the couple!

Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan spoke on Sunday at the annual Saviours’ Day Convention at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL. In light of the revolutionary protests in the country of Libya, the Chicago-based Nation of Islam leader announced that Libya’s controversial leader Moammar Gadhafi has always been a good friend of his and that he does not intend to distance himself from the Libyan dictator.

In his four-hour speech in front of over 18,000 followers, Farrakhan covered many topics such as the common beliefs of Christians and Muslims, the Los Angeles Church of Scientology as well as issues within the black community. The 77 year-old minister also warned President Obama about the revolution in the Middle East coming to America and then later criticized singer Rihanna for her sexually charged performances:

To President Obama:
“What you see happening there, you’d better prepare because it will be coming to your door, America. I hope that President Obama will remember his instructions to all nations — be careful how you attack and kill innocent people who are protesting. Take your own words into your bosom and be reminded when it comes to your home.”

On Rihanna and immigrant Muslims:
He also criticized the sexually charged performances of popstar Rihanna, saying they were “filthy” and that people who enjoyed such antics were “swine,” a description he also applied to homosexuals and lesbians. He also criticized immigrant Muslims in the Chicago area for moving to white suburbs and being patronizing toward black Muslims.

On non-believers:
He warned that non-believers and the sinful would face the wrath of God through high-technology UFOs or “wheels” that he has often described in previous addresses.

On L. Ron Hubbard & Scientology:
“L. Ron Hubbard is so exceedingly valuable to every Caucasian person on this earth, he himself was and is trying to civilize white people and make them better human beings and take away from them their reactive minds … Mr. Hubbard recognized that his people have to be civilized,” Farrakhan said to a cheering crowd.

Check out this little skit done by Mike Tyson on Jimmy Kimmel Live last week. In the skit entitled Tyler Perry’s ‘The President’s Speech’, Tyson plays a speech therapist/advisor to former President George Bush. The introduction shows highlights of Mr. Bush’s various word stumbles throughout his term as President of the United States. Very random, but kind of funny.


Comedian Kevin Hart is currently working on a new Fox series, “Little in Common.” According to Black Media Scoop,

Kevin will reportedly play, Ty Burleson, a former Division 2 athlete and sports writer-turned-house husband who now satisfies his competitive urges by coaching youth baseball.

In related news, Kevin is currently on his “Laught at My Pain” tour and just wrapped up a 2-day performance at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live. According to reports, his tour “set a record with $1.1 million in ticket sales”. No Black comedian since Eddie Murphy has surpassed 1 million dollars in two-day live show ticket sales. Congrats to him.
