I like to call myself a thinker but when I met Juliani it was like I found the last piece of a jigsaw puzzle. His value and mine were aligned. Just the way he looks at life, what he values, what is important to him are the same things that are important to me and that is very rare,” said Lillian.

Why Meghan Fox is not able to remove MGK’s engagement ring from finger

Machine Gun Kelly says the ring he engaged Meghan Fox with has thorns, which will make Fox feel pain if she removes it.

In an interview with Vogue, MGK said;

Of the ring itself is a thoroughbred Colombian emerald, with no treatment. It was just carved into the teardrop, straight out of the mine. And the diamond was directly from Stephen. The concept is that the ring can come apart to make two rings.”

“When it’s together, it’s held in place by a magnet. So you see how it snaps together? And then it forms an obscure heart. And you see this right here? The bands are actually thorns. So if she tries to take it off, it hurts…”

“Love is pain!” He said

MGK said he released the footage of the engagement to control the narrative.

As opposed to someone just catching a weird cell phone picture of a ring on our hand and being like, whoa! But yeah, I didn’t expect it. I just recorded it on my cell phone. And it wasn’t like we had photographers or anything. It was just like me setting my phone against a cup.”

In his engagement post, Kelly described the meaning of the place he made the engagement to the meaning of the ring leaving out information about the thorn.

…In this life and every life’ beneath the same branches we fell in love under, i brought her back to ask her to marry me. i know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love.”

Comedian YY talks newborn and losing previous child

Comedian YY has welcomed a baby girl with the mother of his child Marya. The comedian took to Instagram to praise Marya as the mother to the daughter of a King.

Adding;

“Stronger than a Moissanite…I would have played you a song but you holding my guitar in your hand…I can’t tell you enough how much I honour your selflessness…Thank you for pushing…I want you to choose a destination you would love to visit..na isikuwe nje ya Nairobi please ni January.”

In a video where he is holding his newborn, YY said the journey was hard;

“God promoted me to be a father the other day. It’s been a journey. A lot of you just see baby bump photos and think it was easy. It was very difficult. We came to RFH and met a team of professionals who were able to push the labour period by 3 weeks.”

Before then, he disclosed that he had lost another baby prior to this one, saying,

“It isn’t my first time in a labour ward. I lost my first baby to a stillbirth but all happens for a reason. Maybe God re-incarnated that girl I lost for this one.”

The couple has been dating on the low key.

In a recent interview, the controversial singer said she is attracted to Ringtone because he is good-looking and has a lot of money.
“Ringtone is attractive, rich but he’s slender and talks a lot… If we both talk in the house our marriage will not work.”
She added that she is unsure that he can satisfy her in the bed.
“He is a good guy, he is handsome, he has money, Lakini kwa kutosha mboga sidhani Apoko anaweza, unajua mimi I am a Kamba you have to tosha mboga ile side, so kama Apoko hatoshi mboga,” she said.
In December last year, she expressed her love to Ringtone.

You know if there is anyone who loves you in this Nairobi it’s Justina Syokau. Ringtone is giving me sleepless nights in this city.”

Controversial gospel artiste Justina Syokau has been single for nine years and cannot have feelings for a broke and lazy man.

The Twendi Twendi hitmaker in an interview with the Trend said she, however, wanted to get married last year something that did not happen.

She explained that the main reason is the pandemic since she is spent most of her time indoors.

She also said that having her masks on all the time made it even worse as she could not be spotted easily by the type of men she is looking for.

“I really wanted to get married in 2021 and in fact, it was one of my resolutions. Then we were in lock-down then curfew, then mask happened. No man who will see me. Nachapa luku but no man sees me. I am still single and searching. I was also wanted to cut my weight since I had added a lot of weight. This year, I will have the best shape.”

Justina was married in 2012 and divorced in 2013. She claimed that her husband cheated on her with multiple women, among them her friends.

Pope Francis – ‘please’, ‘sorry’ and ‘thank you’ key words to successful marriage

85 year old Pontiff has some advice for marriage couples who want to experience a successful union.

Pope Francis announced at the Angelus on the Feast of the Holy Family, he published today an open letter to married couples to seek help and always remember three key words in a marriage: “Please, thanks and sorry.”

In the letter, Francis said lockdowns and quarantines had forced families to spend more time together. But he noted that such enforced togetherness at times tested the patience of parents and siblings alike and in some cases led to real difficulties.

 Francis said a failure to make peace before going to bed at night can lead to a “cold war” the next morning.

Here is the letter in its entirety.

 “marriage, as a vocation, calls you to steer a tiny boat — wave-tossed yet sturdy, thanks to the reality of the sacrament — across a sometimes stormy sea.”

“Let us never forget, though, that by virtue of the sacrament of matrimony, Jesus is present in that boat,” the pope added. “He is concerned for you and he remains at your side amid the tempest.”

“Families have always been in my thoughts and prayers, but especially so during the pandemic, which has severely tested everyone, especially the most vulnerable among us.”

“The present situation has made me want to accompany with humility, affection and openness each individual, married couple and family in all those situations in which you find yourselves,” he said.

Hamisa Mobetto: A case study of women being their worst own enemies

Hamisa Mobetto unpacked a lot when she was interviewed by Wasafi media. The mother of two had a lot to speak about but the vignette that stood out for most was her revelation of the trials she had faced having a baby while dating Diamond Platnumz.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CGZr6Rol_y8/

Speaking in an interview with Wasafi TV Hamisa confessed that she had suffered three miscarriages before giving birth to her son, Dylan.

“If there’s someone who was 100 percent sure that Dylan was his kid, it was Diamond. I suffered three miscarriages before I gave birth to Dylan. During the pregnancy, we were together until the day I went to give birth.”

While I am happy for Hamisa and Diamond that they were able to finally get a child from their apparently short liaison, I still think the whole affair stinks to high heaven.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CGVG0f-ird2/

My issue

What get’s me is that Miss Mobetto was perfectly OK to date a man that she knew was already dating another woman. At the time of her affair with Diamond, the singer had already had a child with Zari Hassan his first baby mama.

Not only that, his second-born Nillan with Zari would be born a few months before Dylan was born. Tiffah, Diamond’s eldest daughter was born in August 2014, while Nillan was born in December 2016, with Dylan being born in August 2017.

Tanasha’s latest confession proves Diamond can’t have a long-term relationship (opinion)

This means that Diamond was seeing (sleeping with) Miss Mobetto for some time and not as a fling like we were made to understand. The rumours we had had at the time about the affair was that they met on the set of Diamond’s song, “Salome” where Miss Mobetto was the video vixen.

The joke doing the rounds since then was that Diamond would get kids on the first try because his pull-out game was as weak as Genghis Khan’s. But now that story can be put in the trash-bag as Hamisa revealed that she had 3 miscarriages before she got Dylan.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CGJ9TO9lVkg/

That tells me that the two had had a long-term situationship-one that can successfully fit in 4 pregnancies(I am not a doctor but the period must not be less than 6-8 months).

According to data; women who know they’re pregnant, about 10 to 15 in 100 pregnancies (10 to 15 per cent) end in miscarriage.

Most miscarriages happen in the first trimester before the 12th week of pregnancy. Miscarriage in the second trimester (between 13 and 19 weeks) happens in 1 to 5 in 100 (1 to 5 per cent) pregnancies.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CFhDorTlgr2/

Women are their worst own enemies

This brings me to my point; Miss Mobetto knew that the singer was in a long-term relationship with Zari but that didn’t stop her from still giving away the guava to him.

That Zari was pregnant with Nillan while Hamisa was sleeping with Diamond didn’t matter one bit to her. In fact, she slept with a married man so much so that she had multiple miscarriages during that time.

Dylan was not an oops baby but borne out of premeditated desire. She knew what she was doing with a married man and didn’t care what would happen when the world(Zari) found out. In Miss Mobetto’s world, it was (Me, Myself and I).

https://www.instagram.com/p/CE_9rfklKsf/

Zari would later on dump Diamond in early 2018, attributing his philandering to her decision. Many of her fans blamed Hamisa for the break-down of the relationship, something I didn’t quite understand then as I blamed Diamond solely for not keeping his zip up.

But with this new info, I see Hamisa in an entirely different light, that of women being their worst on enemies.

The T.V landscape has been littered with media beauty after media beauty who have amazed us with their charisma, charm, and chutzpah.

Lillian Muli

They have been wonderful captains of their industry drawing us in and making the news more appealing to watch. They make even listening to news about grand corruption more bearable.

Betty Kyallo

But while many of these female stars on our screens may be excelling in their chosen professions, their love lives tell a different story.

In this article, we take a look at some of the troubled relationships that some of these Kenyan screen queens have had. They are:

Esther Arunga

Her troubles started/continued after she met one Quincy Timberlake. During this period the one-time soft-spoken and very pretty anchor joined the aptly named “Finger of God” church led by a certain brother Hellon.

Arunga

The scandals that erupted after she joined the church are the stuff of legend. She sued her parents, she quit her job, she married the very shady Quincy and then they went to live in Australia.

Last we heard of the couple, they had a lost one of their children after Quincy threw the child on the wall trying to cure him (?).

Lillian Muli

Lillian was destined to live happily ever after when she married Moses Kanene in September 2009. The wedding was a dream, with the venue being the legendary golf course Windsor Golf and Country Club in Ridgeways.

But that and the son they got together would most likely be the highlight of their short marriage after she filed for divorce on January 7, 2016.

Lilian Muli

Her reasons for the divorce were shocking, to say the least. That Kanene was adulterous, violent and quick-tempered.

But Lillian is not one to brood over her misfortunes moving on to a new man, wealthy Shabana FC owner Jared Nevaton. In 2018, the couple was blessed with a baby boy called Liam.

As of 2020, subtle signs are that the two might not be in the best place relationship-wise considering the cryptic messages the Citizen TV has been posting lately.

Doreen Gatwiri

The very attractive yellow yellow former Kiswahili news presenter had one of the most scandalous break-ups in 2018.

But she had got what many slay queens in Kenya would call the ultimate catch? Super-wealthy and super attractive Mwingi Central MP Gideon Mulyungi. She even showed off his huge pink mansion when things between the two were going well.

But things fell apart in 2018 when she alleged on her social media pages that the MP was physically abusive towards her. The MP was subsequently arrested.

She added that she reported previous incidents to police and sought medical attention from hospitals away from home for fear he would follow her. The two are no longer together.

Betty Kyallo

She got married to colleague Dennis Okari in a much-publicized wedding in late 2015 at Marula Manor. The wedding capped a long and drawn out six-year affair.

Joho, Betty and Okari

But things were not to last in matrimonial bliss as a certain flashy governor also had a place in Betty’s heart. This and allegations that Dennis was also cheating made the marriage last less than one year!

Jacque Maribe

Before Jacque Maribe became entwined in as a suspect in the Monica Kimani murder, the journalist had a high-flying career that was only matched by her stories love life.

Jacque had already been linked with Dennis Itumbi and Eric Omondi who would turn out to be her baby-daddy. Her last love-link was with Jowie Irungu who is the prime suspect in the Monica Kimani murder case.

As of 2020, Jacque isn’t linked to any man after she broke up with Jowie.

Grace Msalame

Grace always has a smile on her face but one thing that she might look back on fondly is the break-down of her relationship with Paul Ndichu.

The relationship produced a set of twins but it still wasn’t enough to keep the two together.

Nameless reveals the one book that really helped his marriage (exclusive)

Nameless, real names, David Mathenge has lived a life that most would admire. The man has accomplished a lot; A great career, a loving wife and two beautiful daughters.

Nameless, his wife Wahu and kids in a loving embrace
Nameless, his wife Wahu and kids in a loving embrace

I recently spoke to the celebrity and he was very candid with me about his marriage. He and Wahu have a very close friendship with DJ Mo and Size 8; who celebrated their 6th wedding anniversary earlier in the year. Like DJ Mo, I asked the ‘Nasinzia’ singer the best advice he had received regarding marriage and who had given him that advice?

Nameless, Wahu, DJ MO and Wahu
Nameless, Wahu, DJ MO and Wahu

His answer was fascinating with the singer saying that the advice came in the form of a book. At the time the couple was having issues and his brother-in-law called him to tell him to read a particular book, as he knew the struggles he was going through.

I had an emotional awakening and my brother-in-law told me to read the book, 7 habits of highly effective people. When i read it I was in a state of trying to search for what is my contribution to the issues in my marriage. My mindset at the time was like I was a mjuaji. But after reading the book I started looking at how I could improve myself in the marriage and not on the other person’s performance.

He added,

If you keep focusing on the other person and the other person focuses on you nothing changes. When your partner starts seeing you do that, they also want to replicate and it kind of spirals in a positive way. It was about increasing my emotional intelligence.
