What Happens When Moving In leads to you Moving On. There are so many reasons why people move in together. Some get the urge out of love, others for support, and many because they don't want to be alone, but with making life changing decisions like these there are likely to be some repercussions that can cause the other person to look for someone new.
Today's relationships have become less traditional and more casual some people are settling without demanding to be on the lease, and the others aren't making it a priority. There are thousands of women out there that get strung along on an emotional roller coaster of "love" only to find out they were sucked into playing housekeeper. For other women the role may be in reverse and play the con artists gaming men into supporting them "so to speak", but what happens to those women…OR MEN when their significant other gets tired of the free ride and says "IM DONE! "YOU GOT TO GO" what then?…Living with the opposite sex has its perks, but lets not forget everything that glitters isn't gold, and most importantly nothing lasts forever, or does it?
Regardless, we all know what happens when "Shacking Up" goes all too well and everyone lives "happily ever after", but what happens when you’re not so lucky and get caught out there, are too naive to make the right decisions.
ARE YOU REALLY HAPPY IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP OR ARE JUST SETTLING?
Do you see yourself with someone else in the long-run? Are you in an ‘open’ relationship, but you're the only one that wants it to be exclusive? Even though you’re with someone, do you often wonder when you’ll meet someone else? Do you wish you could change a not-so-short list of things about your current mate? If you could be with anyone in the world would you choose someone other than the person you’re with? If Your Answer Is Yes To Any Of These Questions Then You Are Definitely Settling. Let's Discuss It The Grown Sexy Situation Way.

The dark shadow to the demise of a relationship doesn't always lie between the two people dating. Many times it’s the opinions, thoughts, and manipulative ways of close friends that can take your man or females mind in other directions. Men and women often look to their closest associates or friends to vent or share their personal issues, but what if that advice is purposely misguided. When your friends should be there to guide you in the right direction they become the dark shadow that follows the relationship to its end. Let's talk about it with the lovely ladies of O.W.W.H.H.!
Music World Gospel recording artist Amber Bullock, soared to the top of the gospel music charts after capturing the hearts of millions as she topped a talented field of singers to become the 2011, Season 4 winner of BET’s Sunday Best, the #1 rated weekly gospel music competition show. Her debut CD project, Thank You, was released in December, 2011, on Mathew Knowles’ Music World Gospel label. The EP entered at #1 on Billboard’s Top Gospel Albums chart. Thank You featured the Top 10 Billboard hit, “Thank You Lord,” a rendition of Walter Hawkins’ anthem as well as other contemporary classic songs.
Bullock, the St. Louis native and single mother of three-year old Amya, is building a diverse fan base with her signature jazz-infused and neo-soul inspired style. Her unique approach to gospel and inspirational music is front and center on her sophomore CD project, So In Love, which will be available in stores and online everywhere on July 10, 2012.
So In Love is produced by PJ Morton for 2PM Music. Bullock describes their musical partnership as a “match made in heaven.” The result is ten songs of feel-good inspirational music that ranges in style from neo-soul, to jazz, to contemporary gospel, to reggae, with even a little country thrown in. The songs on the CD highlight Bullock’s incredible vocal range and her unique singing style.
“I love music, so I don’t want to just give my listeners the same type of music that’s already out there,” says Bullock. “I want to give them fresh, memorable songs that they are still humming long after the song has finished playing, the kind of songs you keep on repeat.” On her new CD, she does just that.
Bullock wrote her first single, “Lord You’ve Been So Good” with a friend, when she was in college. The song was updated for this CD project with the help of PJ Morton. The upbeat, neo-soul style song features a driving horn section and shows off Bullock’s wide range and effortless runs. “Done For Me,” was also written by Bullock, with Shaun Martin, Greg Brown and Kirk Franklin, who is featured on this song. It has a catchy tune and a powerful message about God’s unconditional love. Bullock goes reggae in “I’m So In Love with You,” which was penned by PJ Morton. “Second Chances,” is a contemporary gospel song that Bullock describes as “dramatic” with instrumentation that features strings and an organ. The song reminds the listener that God’s love and forgiveness are great gifts to us. “Changed,” written by PJ Morton and featuring Isaac Carree, has a contemporary gospel style and a memorable hook. “My daughter sings along with this song every time she hears it,” says Bullock.
The R&B style “Yes,” starts with drums and keeps on pumping energy. The song, written by PJ Morton, is one of Bullock’s favorite on the CD because of both the catch tune and the message. “Yes is a powerful word,” she says. Written by Juante Hall and Jonathan Dunn, “Nobody Else” has jazzy undertones and a message about going to a secret place to meet only with God. “Take it Back,” written by Josiah Martin, reminds us that everything we do or have comes from God. That message is delivered in a pop style song with techno-rock undertones. “Ruler” is a contemporary praise and worship song that Bullock describes as “a little bit country.” Bullock continues, “My most powerful worship experience is when I’m focused on how powerful and loving God is, and how He keeps blessing me, even when I don’t deserve it.” The last song on the CD, “Same God,” was written by Bullock and Shaun Martin. It’s a simple but powerful worship song that acknowledges the faithfulness of God.

We live in a world where whoever has the control stands supreme. How does the balance out in romantic relationships? Does one sex have more power over another? Does one sex hold the reins over another? Tonight, we will discuss the power struggle between men and women. Which sex has been endowed with the ability to sway a relationship in one direction or another.
We'll also break down what each sex does right or wrong when it comes to beginning, maintaining and dissolving a romantic relationship. Will the men trump the women, or do the ladies dominate over man. We'll be joined by the authors of Fearless: A Bold Approach to Reinventing Your Life, Candace Kelley, Caryl Lucas and Gilda Rogers. Let's get ready to rumble....right here, on "Live in the Vocal Booth"!
It’s an all too familiar sight these days seeing a celebrity, or celebrity couple in the news for a domestic violence act perpetrated against one or the other. As Domestic Violence incidences increase, has society reached a point where it has become accepted in today’s culture as the norm? Has the fame of the celebrity or marrying for money played a major part in how the public views the offender and victim?
Just as we unite and band together against other injustices in society, we need to band together against one of the worse forms of violence in today’s society. A persons financial status, celebrity or fame should not cloud our views on how violent and hurtful the act of domestic violence really is.
Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of size, gender, or economic status. Are you or someone you care about in an abusive relationship? Do you feel afraid of your partner most of the time? Do you avoid certain topics out of fear of angering your partner? Do you feel like you can't do anything right for your significant other? Does your partner humiliate you, criticize you or put you down?
Does your partner blame you for their own abusive behavior? Have your significant other ever threaten to hurt you, kill you or force you to have sex? Victims of domestic violence sometimes fail to recognize the general warning signs. It is often overlooked, excused or denied and at times the abuse may lead to death.

Special Guest: Treach
"I don't want to be stereotyped as the typical, so-called 'rap actor'. I'm looking to also play characters that aren't gangstas. I know I have a long way to go, but I'm sure I can do it." - Anthony Criss
Born in Newark, New Jersey, Criss found his future while still attending high school. Befriending two musical brothers, Vinnie and Kay Gee, the three formed a rap group, called Nasty by Nature, that would eventually take the U.S. by storm.
By 1991, the group broke into the big time with the smash hit 'O.P.P.' from their self-titled debut album. They soon followed up the success with another hit song 'Hip Hop Hooray' from their second album, released in 1993.
A year earlier, Criss had been given the opportunity to have a small walk-on role in the feature film, Juice (1992). About the experience Criss says, "It is like you can slip into a whole different mode. You are a different person. It is like a high. You are someone else and the way you get the high is by convincing people that you are that character. The whole acting thing is great. I love it."
He fell in love with acting so much, in fact, that he dedicated half of his time in the '90s playing minor roles in features such as The Meteor Man (1993), Jason's Lyric (1994), the television film First-Time Felon and a re-occurring guest role in the series Oz, playing Malcolm "Snake" Coyle.
Criss returned to rap work in the mid-'90s to complete his fourth album 'Nineteen Naughty Nine: Nature's Fury', which was released in 1999. He then submerged himself in film work landing larger roles in films like Boricua's Bond (2000) and 3 A.M. (2001), followed by his first lead role in Love and a Bullet (2002) about an expert assassin whose next target is a woman he has fallen for.
Criss was married to fellow rapper, Sandra "Pepa" Denton from the famed group Salt-N-Pepa. They married in 1999 and have two children. The two divorced in 2001.
