Tanisha Davis: “So I’m excited about this new TV series, can you tell me a little bit more about it?”

Darrin D. Henson: “Sure, “The Family Business” which airs on BET at 9 pm on Tuesdays is about the Duncan’s family, an exotic car business-owning family, successful black family in NYC who is in the business of cars and other businesses, and as you know in business where there is success there is also jealousy. So there is jealousy within the family, outside of the family, and there is war going on with different cartels you know, but the Duncan family is the new family on the block to watch out for.”

Darrin explained how there are obstacles that come in the world of business and being successful in the family.  So with the Duncan family there is a lot of trouble within the family and outside of the family.

Now let’s get to know the character he plays!

Tanisha: So you play Orlando Duncan, can you tell me a little about your character?

Darrin: “Orlando is next in line to run the family business. The first episode shows that he is going to be the recipient of the business from his father and again it raises eyebrows and makes other family members jealous, you know, LC  Duncan has had a long-standing relationship with the  exotic car business as well as the narcotic business so, its raising jealousy within the family itself.”

Tanisha“This sounds kind of like a mafia-style family”

Darrin: “This family is not to be messed with!”

We can tell this new series is going to keep you entertained and questioning what’s going to happen next.

Tanisha: What drew you to this project because I know its based on Carl Weber’s book so what made you want to be apart of it?

Darrin: Well, I worked with Tri Destined who is the producing company behind the film, many many times, I also worked with Carl Weber many times, so reading the books working with Carl and working with Tri Destined, then reading about this particular show and seeing that its so well developed, and the characters are well developed…who wouldn’t want to play Orlando Duncan?! Its an opportunity to do great work and tell great stories.”

Darrin then explains how the cast is the best part about going into work every day because there is a great group of people to work along side of.

Tanisha: How would you describe the Duncan family?

Darrin: The Duncan’s family is not to be played with,  Sean Ringgold who plays my big bro…plays the enforcer. He is literally ready to smash heads, you can see in the first  episode that’s what we did, we smashed heads.’

Tanisha: Whats the relationship behind scenes with the cast, are you guys having a lot of fun?

Darrin: We are literally like family there’s no question that its a family.

Tanisha: Out of all of the characters that you have played in other movies, what do you like most about this character?

Darrin: Orlando is the real deal, he’s smart, strategic, he loves his family, he’s an entrepreneur and he’s ready for more, he’s a well-developed character with human flaws which is great because we can see how he unfolds hopefully for the next 10 years.

Tanisha: Are there any upcoming projects with you, I know you have a movie for Thanksgiving?

Darrin: Yes, its called Nothing Like Thanksgiving, it’s going to be on the AMC channel.  Im very excited about people seeing it, its about love & life… and once again FAMILY its one to watch on Thanksgiving Day.

3 Quick Tips On Making a Long Distance Relationship Work

Image result for long distance relationships

Many people believe that long distance relationships are never going to work out. Your family may discourage it, and some of your best friends may advise you not to take it too seriously, in case you get your heart broken. Nobody said it would be easy, things could get complicated, and you could get sad and lonely at times. However, the extra distance also makes the simplest things, the sweetest.

So below I have shared 3 helpful tips towards making your long distance relationship work!

  1.    ALWAYS MAKE TIME FOR ONE ANOTHER

    Long distance relationships are hard enough, and causing your significant other to feel less important can really affect your relationship. The small things really do matter especially in a long-distance relationship. Making a schedule can save and change the relationship for the better. For example, video chatting in the morning and night can make you feel more closer and your bond in fact will get stronger. Always make sure to let your spouse know your working schedule. There is no worse feeling than calling your spouse 5 times, and your spouse answering 4 hours later. If you are busy or know you’re going to have a busy day, take a few seconds to simply shoot him/her a text to let them know, and not have them thinking the worst.

  2.   MAKE EVERY ANNIVERSARY UNIQUE

    Anniversaries mark the day that you both decided on faithfully loving each other.  Your day most likely will consist of receiving a sweet good morning call, long paragraphs, and maybe some foreplay on the phone once the sun goes down.  Try to switch it up and not repeat the same thing. This can be a difficult task but really put your mind and heart into it.  Take it back to hand written letters. Maybe send them a second envelope with photo prints. Another great idea is sending them a teddy bear with a custom voice box and try getting them a teddy bear that’s their favorite color. Long distance relationship are very hard on special days like these so try to surprise him/her and catch a plane, especially on your 1-year anniversary.

  3.   TAKE THE RELATIONSHIP SERIOUS

    Long distance relationship or not, why be in one if you do no take it as serious as you should? Its hard to prove yourself in a long-distance relationship because you are not physically there. Once you start showing effort and support, you will be taken seriously. Tell your family and friends, show them off on Facebook, and always prove to others and to yourself that you take the long-distance relationship very serious.   There will be brighter days and you guys will be together one day, this is only temporary 😊

TMZ Paparazzi asked if Bhad Bhabie “was expecting “to be nominated and she replies “Not really” Bhad Bhabie says “she already won” by simply being nominated along with the hottest artist in the game, but also says “Cardi is going to win and she deserves it.

Bhad Bhabie explains why Cardi B is better than Nicki Minaj and seems to not like Nicki Minaj as an artist.

Although a lot of different artist such as 50 Cent, are surprised with the nominee, it may be a difficult competition. Nicki Minaj has hit the Billboard Hot 100 many times. Bhad Bhabie has just started out and her “Hi B*tch” single was a success. Cardi B had a huge breakout year last year with her number 1 single “Bodak Yellow” and her new album “Invasion of Privacy” debuted on No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album charts this year.

If Cardi B doesn’t win the Top Rap Artist, she still can earn the award for Top Female Artist against pop artist.  Cardi can also earn Top Streaming Songs Artist, Billboard Chart Achievement Award, and Top Streaming Songs (Video).

The U.S, U.K and France have fired missiles to Syria In Douma in response to the chemical attack caused by Assad Regime. The U.S launched more than 105 Missiles and hit all three targets successfully.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said, “a little more than a double” Weapons were used compared to last year 2017 in which only 59 Tomahawk Missiles were involved.

“We were very precise and proportionate, but at the same time it was a heavy strike,” Mattis said.

President Trump thanked the allies in his tweet:

 “A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!”

According to a Defense Department, the attack involved munitions fired from naval vessels and aircraft’s which included 100 tomahawk cruise missiles.

Satellite Images of the before and after were shared by  ISI Image Sat International with Fox News. The photo taken Saturday shows the main buildings destroyed.

The Left image was taken in August 2013, and the right image was taken Saturday after the missiles.

The U.S has been distressed hoping that Russian soldiers were safe. Days before the Missiles were fired, The US military claimed they would notify Russian counterparts of possible target before a strike. In last year’s airstrikes, Russia was given an advanced warning. This year the U.S did not communicate with Russia about the strikes on Syria. Russia has bases and soldiers in Syria. The miscommunication and injury of any soldiers may lead to a conflict between Russia and the US.
