Serena Does it Again: Wins Australian Open Over Sharapova

serena williams with racket

*(Via ESPN) — Serena Williams won her 19th Grand Slam title and continued her unbeaten run in six Australian Open finals by extending her decade-long domination of Maria Sharapova.

She struggled with a hacking cough, she was sick, and she twice celebrated too early, but she held her composure in a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory on Saturday.

On her third match point, she let her racket go before hearing a let call to what she thought was an ace.

Things got a little tricky down the stretch for Serena Williams in the Australian Open final against Maria Sharapova. But come on, was the outcome really ever in doubt? Story

Never in her wildest dreams did world No. 1 Serena Williams think she could create this much history. Story

“I thought, ‘Wow this is it, I did it, only to hear let. I was like, ‘OK Serena!'” she said. “I was very disappointed, because Maria was playing so well. I thought she’s going to try to hit a winner now. She’s goes for broke on match point.”

Obama Takes Pic with Kanye & Kim; She Posts it on Instagram (Look)

*Dang, all this time we thought the President Obama, KanyeKim K and the Kardashians didn’t exactly see eye to eye. In fact we recall back in 2013, the president using an interview with Amazon to discuss – among other things – the American dream. It was noted  – at the time – he thought that there had been something of “a shift in culture” … with today’s youth being bombarded with the trappings of wealth. He then went on to throw shade at Kanye, Kim and the Kardashians as an example:

“I don’t think people went around saying to themselves: ‘I need to have a 10,000 square foot house,'” Obama reflected of his own childhood. “We weren’t exposed to things we didn’t have in the same way kids these days are. There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”

Well, that was then. Now it appears the prez and Mr. and Mrs. West have decided to be cordial to each other these days. So much so that the three to a pic together sometime last year.

On Friday, Kim shared the photo on Instagram … complete with a personal message from the Commander in Chief himself.

“To Kanye & Kim – Thanks for the support and best wishes to your lovely daughter!” the president wrote.

Now that we think about it, we’re guessing the the picture was most likely taken in October, when the Wests met POTUS for a sit down at the White House.

“Me and my wife met with President Obama two weeks ago,” Kanye Tweeted after the meeting.

We wonder in Mr. Obama still thinks Kanye is a “jackass,” as he has labeled him a couple of times in the past.

Sherri does not hold back on her what she thinks. This week she shared her thoughts on prenups and reunited with her fellow Dancing with the Stars alum Gladys Knight. Listen to the hilarious commentary here.

On Christian Prenups:Christians believe you’re not supposed to do a prenup. They don’t talk about prenups.They talk about dowries in the bible, but not prenups because it’s in the event of divorce. They believe you are setting yourself up for divorce if you get a pre-nup.”

On Competing Against Gladys Knight On Dancing With The Stars: “She fooled everybody. She could dance but every week she said ‘I on’t think I’m going to dance this week. My knee – I’m going to go home.’ So everybody banked on Gladys Knight going home and every week she got out there and jammed.”

Dr. Dre Disputes Suge’s Claim that He Asked for a Peace Meeting

*As far as Suge Knight is concerned, Dr. Dre wants it known that he did not ask Knight to come to a film set so they could make peace.

Sources say Dre is basically taking a “Oh, hell no” attitude at reports that say Suge is claiming Terry Carter — the man he struck and killed — called and asked him to come to the set because Dr. Dre wanted to end their beef.

Here’s what TMZ is reporting:

Less than an hour before the hit and run, Suge went to another set location but was thrown out by Dre’s security. Sources connected with Suge say he got a call from Carter who said he had just spoken with Dre and the Beats mogul said he wanted Suge to return so he could make peace.

Our Dre sources say it never happened, and note it’s pretty convenient the only other person who has first-hand knowledge is dead because Suge killed him.

As for why Dre and his people didn’t want Suge around … we’re told it’s because they view Suge as having a big fat target on his back. They say the shooting last Summer where Suge was hit 6 times is proof enough … he has enemies, and Dre of course didn’t want himself nor any of his people in the line of fire.

*Tamika Raymond, celebrity wardrobe stylist and founder of the “Style Theory Tour,” kicked off the first stop of the 14 city tour in Atlanta earlier this month and will hold its third tour date in Charlotte on Saturday, January 31, 2015.

Leading industry style and beauty experts present included Celebrity Makeup Artist Ashunta Sheriff, Celebrity Hairstylist Terrence Davidson, and Award-winning Makeup Artist Nissa Green.  The event was hosted by Lifestyle Specialist Kenny Burns.

“”Style Theory”  is a thought provoking and enlightening workshop not just for aspiring fashion stylists and beauty professionals, but for the average person who wants to look and feel above average. ‘Style Theory’ will connect the gaps and help participants become the total package! This workshop is suitable for both women and men, and will answer questions pertaining to make up application, hair care, and fashion blunders to avoid. It will reveal the secrets of styling and uncover hair care…

“I really felt that ‘Style Theory’ is a necessary because you have so many people who need help with styling and makeup. You have so many moms who have lost their mojo and just need help. The Style Theory Tour is a tour where the top in the business will show them how to put their look together, what hair works, clothes, their style etiquette,” says Raymond.

Raymond added, “They will have a comprehensive training. They will learn how to put themselves together from head to toe,” she says.

According to Raymond, “Style Theory” was created to inspire women and men to find their own style, and empower them to assist others in doing the same. The purpose of this workshop is to teach others, in a one on one interactive environment, how to become the total package from the inside out. We believe style is key, but style is not only external. Style is within and finding true beauty begins with ones mindset. The ‘Style Theory’ workshop is designed to teach the ins and outs of styling from inner (mental) beauty to hair, makeup, and how to dress for every occasion. Raymond isn’t new to this, she has lent her style dexterity to chart toppers Lauryn Hill, Jay-Z, Toni Braxton, Usher, Chris Brown, Mary J.

Her fashion work has graced the covers of Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, GQ, Rolling Stone, Essence, Seventeen, People, Vibe and Details.

Raymond’s top tip for styling on a budget, “Don’t follow trends too closely. Find one staple piece and add a low-end piece with it; high-low styling.   I always say buy a good shoe or good shirt.”

Catch the “Style Theory Tour” coming to a city near you.
