A photo posted by Muhammad Ali (@muhammadali) on

My “voice,” as writers call it, has been missing. I’ve been searching for it for quite some time. Just ask my parents, Stiletto Jill, Michael Tillery, Nate Jones, Freshalina and Dallas Penn. They all know. Ask, the Lord above, for He certainly knows.

Muhammad Ali has left us, and suddenly I’ve found my voice.

His passing marks the end to an era, and you “best believe” he was an era all by himself. When he told us he “shook up the world,” he never lied.

JUMPED THE BROOM: Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union tied a glamorous knot

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union Wedding

A Peek Into The Wade Union

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union were married yesterday outside of Miami, Florida.

They swore their guests (or legally binded them) to secrecy, so cameras and cell phones were forbidden, but that didn’t stop their loved ones and friends from sharing their excitement just before and after the ceremony.

Let’s just say, Instagram is a helluva drug.

I scoured “The Gram” to give you a glimpse of #TheWadeUnion, which by the way, is the most creative damned wedding hashtag ever!

Obvious observation indicates that this was a formal, all black and white affair.

Enjoy the flicks!

Gabrielle enjoyed her pre-wedding festivities with an amazing glow….
