Looking forward to more #BlerdDating? I'm up this Monday with my confession "Dating Somebody Who's Married." Expect a crazy night! Here is an article I wrote about it two years ago--the summer that felt like every guy who asked me out for dinner didn't check with the missus. And I would only find out about any of this around dessert! No doubt we'll have LOTS to discuss for sure in the FB Official Blerd Dating After Party. Join us this Monday by searching the hashtag #BlerdDating on Twitter at 9pmEST. We'll have guest host Jamie Broadnax of Black Girl Nerds on for the hour and would love to see you there too!! #BlerdDating is not just for #Blerds. Come and join our party!! #Love #Relationships #RelationshipsBeLike #RelationshipGoals #Heartbreak

I Am Not Your Negro is a documentary film about American author James Baldwin. It's directed by Raoul Peck and narrated by Samuel L. Jackson. The film is based on Baldwin's unfinished novel Remember This House (considered one of the greatest uncompleted works in American literature).

#TalkItUpTuesdays  - 
 
So...what are all of you doing Monday night at 9pmEST? Why not join us over on Twitter for the debut of a really cool weekly Twitter stories/chat-mashup we've been working on with creator Leesa Dean (ChilltownTV). It's called #BlerdDating. And when Leesa told me about the idea earlier this year, I immediately said, "Yeah, let's do it!" We're making our debut next week and going for a one-year run, then we're out!
52 confessions (Yep, I'm confessing!) on dates from hell that can only happen to us #Blerds.
Join us Monday on Twitter at 9pmEST with the hashtag #BlerdDating (follow me as well @Nicoleedits on Twitter if you think you'll be lost). It's going to be a blast! And we have celebrity special guests! (Check our schedule on our site!)
At 10pmEST, head back over to Facebook for our #BlerdDating Afterparty with host Lisa Durden for a live online chat fest that gets deeper, darker and wilder. (Like we said--it's the Afterparty!)
We're thrilled to have a show where we can talk good times, relationship issues and outrageously bad dates. Yeah...we all went through them for some reason, right? Here we go!
One of my favorite parts about #BlerdDating is because the #Blerds on Twitter will probably help us get super popular, why keep all of that attention to ourselves? At certain times during the year, we'll spotlight some hard-working nonprofits for the entire month. We have merch! Purchase our t-shirts that month and 20% of the profits goes right to that featured charity. It's a month of love--because when our dates go low, we go high! :) Hang out with us! More info: http://www.BlerdDating.com. And please share!

Happy Holidays, Everyone! Have a safe and wonderful holiday season. If you're in the mood for a very good, award-winning film, one was just released from filmmaker Priscilla Anany today on iTunes:
#Film #FilmRelease #iTunes 
After an affair with a neighbor’s spouse, ESSUMAN becomes pregnant with his highly anticipated male child. Through a difficult delivery NUKU is born with a cleft lip prompting his father to reject the baby. Nuku is further diagnosed with cerebral palsy. ESSUMAN and NUKU are rejected by their would be family and made into pariahs by their community. She goes to great lengths ( from hospital to hospital, dubious medicine men, false prophets) and su...

Good read.
Alessandra Ferri became the youngest ever prima ballerina at the Royal Ballet aged 19, and now she’s about to return to the Royal Opera House as the oldest leading lady since Dame Margot Fonteyn.

It's been quite a year personally and professionally for me and my work with EPIPHANY Inc. We filmed a feature (in 8 days, in case you haven't heard...yes!) and we are currently in wait-and-see mode for festival acceptances/rejections while our post production team is working in a realm nothing short of magical. I am blessed to have an incredible crew that said, "Let's do this!" and made something beyond my wildest dreams happen. I am...
