1 Year Anniversary

It’s been officially 1 year since I flew across the globe to be with my online romance who turn out to truly be my soulmate. I remember the day when I booked the flight and the day I got on the plane. It was one of the most terrifying experiences of my life. Flying 7,000 miles landing on two different continents and different zones made me feel like a zombie who wanted sleep.

The whole idea of doing that for someone you only talk to online seems dangerous or adventurous depending on you view it. However from the time our eyes met on the “What’s Up App it was something about this man that intrigue me. The more I talked to him the more he sparked my curiosity. I don’t know it was the whole culture thing my love for the African culture or his style. It could of possibly been the tattoo he got of me on his arm or the song he made for me on Itunes. I knew from the moment I laid eyes on him that I would meet him in real life very soon.

When he gave me the money to book my flight I knew he was hooked on me as well. Most men that I know don’t normally break out cash for ladies they never meet. From out first conversation I said I want to get married and make some babies before it’s to late. He said he want that as well. With no time to waste or hesitation he got on one knee and said marry me and he mail me my ring through Amazon dot com. (lol) I thought it was cute and I agree the rest is history and now today I can say I am engaged to my best friend.

He promised to give me the world on a silver platter with us on a balcony of a beauty hotel overlooking a panoramic view of a beautiful blue water and tropical plants somewhere in Dubai, Africa or Europe. He has no idea him committing to only to me is all I need. I think love comes in mystery ways and it only appears when your are open to receive it. I had to lose a lot of things that I loved for my heart to open up to the possibility of the beauty that others truly bring into your life. With that being said I am glad I found my forever man and this is truly until death does apart and for better or worse. I love you Tobi Dollar

“Living Happily Ever After” My Life & My Choices I am Living For Me XOXO

Its almost everyone woman to dream to get married and live happily ever after from you ages girls play dress up and pretend to walk down the aisle. I was one of those little girls always imaging how I look on my wedding day and wonder if I would ever find a husband. Flashforward to my current life and all those dreams and have turn into nightmares of kissing frogs hoping they would turn into a prince just my luck I got prince.

However, my fairytale ending has been a rollercoaster ride of long miserable uncomfortable flights, red tape with visas, heavy luggage, and long layovers in foreign countries and even after all of that I am still not 100% happy. I thought that getting married would someone how make my life happy like the people on TV and that has not happend.

To make a long story short I no longer want to be defined by ability to keep a man happy or about how many children I am willing to have with him. I have seen it many times before women give men their all and end up without nothing like my Grandma like to say “They don’t have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out. Look at how Mary J husband did her cheated on her and was spending all of Mary J money on a young slut. How said that woman really loved her husband. Love is not everything for me anymore love can be a trap.

I am tried of constantly have to prove myself to people. I have to prove I am a good woman, I have to prove that I will be faithful, I have to allow my body to house a baby for a man that could leave me anytime. I have to look good, I have to have sex when he wants it, and I have to pretend like I am not mad when I am hurt or offend.

I never wanted to be a single, unwedded mother but, now at this age being a single unwedded mother would be more easier then being in the dating game for all this time. I wish I would of married young and had children like all of my friends. Oh no I wanted to be a career woman and go to college.

To bring my thoughts to and end which leads to my next question why is the American culture so fixed on the idea of women getting married and having babies. 50% of marriages end in divorces. At this point in the game I am chose to live my life for me and “DAMN” what anyone else think. I am following my own heart and going after my dreams. I am no longer putting my life on hold for anyone. Those same people you put your life on hold for will throw you out like trash when they are done using you.

That’s how I really feel and sorry to anyone who doesn’t like. Sorry correction I am not sorry.


Dear: Tobi “It is True I really do Love You”

The 7,000 mile love story hasn’t been easy but, I would not change anything that I been through. I don’t really know how to express my love for him but, some of the ways I try is by supporting Tobi anyway I can. Yes were are from two different cultures and have many cultural issues we are working through.

However I will say that I knew when I made the choice to be with him I knew it would not be easy. I know that relationships are not easy and when it’s someone you love you can’t just walk away from the person.

Many people are saying that I am showboating which is true. What is the point of having a man if you can’t show off the love you have for each other. I got engaged to the Tobi less than a month of knowing him many said that is crazy and for me to be careful because, it could me a romance scam.

Well almost 5 years later we are still together and I never felt that he scammed me or took advantage of me. That is saying a lot because, I have been scammed and I have been taken advantage of before. I said all that to say I know what it feels like to be used and guess what I do not feel used by him I feel 100% loved by Tobi.

He has been my rock, my bestfriend, and confidante and he has helped me to reach my goals of becoming of a wife and mother. Of all the nice things he has done for what I liked most is when I told him I am ready for marriage and a family he did not run from me he embraced me.

So when people asked me why of all men I wanted to chose a man to marry from West Africa my response is I didn’t chose him he chose me. He asked me to marry him, He asked me to have his children, He asked me into his Youbra Tribe, He asked me to fly 7,000 miles to, He asked my parents if he could marry me and lastly, he asked me to meet his family in the village.

So in a nutshell this man was a man who came to me correct and gave me everything I asked for. In return I agreed to be his African-American Nubian Queen Black Goddess.

I am Tangela Evette Stephens-Alaba “Olori Alaba in my tribe. I am very happy and still am very much love with you so Tobi if you actually read my blogs you will see that you are always a “Hot Topic” in my life.

It is true your Dreams did come true you are married to a Black American who really loves you and it is not a game for me.

Lastly Thank You for not giving up on me during the times I acted like a Bitch. I am 100% American they let women be bitchy sometimes it’s a normal part of our culture for women rights to have rights. Which sometimes included the woman snapping and its not only when she is on her period. “LOL” The American woman sometimes have to be the head of her household and pay all the bills. The women in America have to work just as hard as a man and sometimes even harder to take care of their familes.

So please don’t be offend by what you see or seen on social media just understand no matter what has took place in the past I still love you and my family in West Africa.


Hells Kitchen- Las Vegas “My White Wedding Dinner Celebration” at British Chef Gordon Ramsay Upscale Restaurant

If your a foodie and a professinal TV watcher like myself then I know you have heard of “Hells Kitchen” a top restaurant own and operated by TV Chef Gordon Ramsay. Let me the first to tell you that the food is very good and the eatery is very unique and pretty. What I liked most about the Hells Kitchen is it did not take long for us to be seated. The staff was real nice and professional and not only that my Shrimp Salad was good, the only thing I wanted was more shrimp.

My crew order the 6 course meal for about only $125 and you get a glass of wine included and the Louis Vutton Hennsey and Coke was $40 a drink or you could buy the whole bottle for a couple of benjamins. LOL

TI had a great time in Vegas and I plan to go back and eat at Hells Kitchen again. I loved Chef Ramsay show on TV he is a such an entertaining and enjoyable chef to watch on FOX network. Although I did not get met him I give his restaurant about 4.5 Stars on a 5 point scale. I needed more Shrimp in my Salad I paid $40 for that it was very tasty. Thank You also to my bridesmaid and cousin Tenika Booth and James Booth from Dallas for coming out to Las Vegas for “White Wedding Dinner at Hells Kitchen.”

This was the best moment in my life getting to eat my Hells Kitchen. I would like to become a Chef and open my own food truck.


Miss Black Texas USA Pageant “Miss Black Beaumont USA” Tangela Stephens Formerly The Queen of Texas currently “The Queen of West Africa” I am the Brains & Beauty of my Brand and of my life.

Tangela Stephens Winner of Miss American Dream, Contestant in Miss Black Texas USA, Accepted into the Miss Texas USA National Pageant for 4 consecutive years, Accepted into The Miss United State Pageant, and Nominated as The Lifetime Armadillo Queen for The Mo-To-Go Non-Profit Organization Founded by Bobby Moore and The President Dr. Johnson Esq

Attend Prairie View A&M University Research Apprenticeship Program-Agriculture Dept of Research and Science, Prairie View A&M Dean List Student in Dept of Psychology, Graduate of Lamar University with a Minor in Communication with a Bachelors Degree in Applied Arts & Sciences.

I was a beauty queen an official Miss Black Texas USA contestant but, currently, I am a Queen in my tribe “The Youbra Tribe” in West Africa. What I learn from competing in beauty pageants is that beauty is within and it’s more then the texture of your hair, the size of your waist and bust or how well you walk and talk. Beauty is all about how confident you are in yourself and your beliefs that your a breath of fresh air within. We are all charming people in our on way because, GOD create us all from the human race that originated in the Motherland which is now the country of Africa. My platform as a Miss Texas contestant was philanthropy my mission was and still is creating a community center for people to enjoy.

Consequently, many people have been brainwashed by European Standards of beauty called “Eurocentrism” and sometimes don’t recognize the value of their own natural God given allure. The media may call certain non- Eurocentrism unattractive or unkept like Black People who wear their natural non chemical treated hair, extra weight like being full figured, and skin imperfections like birth marks. I want to admit that I was once brainwashed to believe that it was only one standard of pretty which was based Eurocentrism. I was lost but, now I am found.

More than a decade ago I have a dream to become the “Queen of Texas’ then go on to win the Miss Black Texas USA pageant. Although I did not win the Miss Black Texas USA pageant but, I still won at loving and believing in myself and that I could accomplish anything that I wanted achieve. All I can say is a dream is a journey with a lot of twist and turns but, I never stop having the courage that I could truly be a Queen in my every day life. Eventually after I compete in so many pageants to finally be nomatied the Winner of Miss Texas American Dream in Las Vegas as the Miss Texas I was very excited.

Until Death Does Them Apart “Greg & Nene” marriage is Over RIP “Greg” Prayers are needed for The Atlanta Housewife” Star :Nene Leaks

Greg went to be with the lord leaving the love of his life behind. Nene and Greg have been married since 1997 and have two children together the power couple shot to fame as the over night stars on Bravo highest rated show “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

According to reports Greg cancer was cured and then it come back within some years and he lost his battle to cancer at 66 years old.

Now I wonder if Nene would come back to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta lord knows they need her Bravo is not my top network anymore. I think for them to fired the top star of the show was not a good move the franchise.

Nene was not only helping her husband fight cancer but, she always suing BRAVO for racisms and I think she is corrected. I’ve always thought “Andy Cohen” seem to be harder on the Black castmates and would let Kim the only white castmate getting away with saying “Racisms” doesn’t exist which a slap in the face to the Black audience.

Not only that Phadera Parks a lawyer in Atlanta and a star on the hit show was fired because, she repated a lie that was a rumor she heard about a castmate. Meanwhile Vicki Gunvalson from Housewives of Orange County I heard lied about having cancer on the show as well and she didn’t get fired she got more TV airtime. Once again the producers got it wrong Ms. Parks should of never lost her job.

Lastly please keep Nene in your prayers we need her stay strong. We love you Nene and wish you much success in your next career move.

Maurice Faye “Love and Hip Atlanta Cast Reality TV Show

The “Wanna Be A Baller” on others people money “Maurice Faye” Arkansas Rapper is in the photo with Carli Red was once featured on Vh1 highest rated reality tv show.

The Love and Hip Series saga keep going on this drama filled showed created by Mona Scott Young has created more fakers then ever. I always wonder what they are going to do next. Is Stevie Jay still on the show and I also liked Lil Scrappy, Mama Dee, Josline, Yandy Smith, Ray J, and, Remey Ma, and Carli B. I love this show it like watching a “Train Wreck that stays on the track.”

Mr. Faye instead of trying to steal the money why don’t you work for it. I heard Mona pays her people well on “Love & Hip Hop.” “LOL”

U.S. Prosecutors Attorney Kurt R. Eskine said that Mo Faynce took money from bussinesses who did not make it after the COVD-19 shut down.

The rapper is 38 and if has has to do the whole 17 years he will be 55 years old when he get. I don’t think 17 years of your life is worth the 2.2 million dollars that he got for his trucking business.


1 Term Former Mayor of Port Arthur, TX Derrick Freeman 1st Cousin to UGK Rap Star Bun B “Next Chapter” Losing The election Run Off Re-Election to Pastor”Thurman Bartie”

Derrick Freeman who started off as a city councilmember in Port Arthur, TX home of the famous rapper Pimp C is a Port Arthur Native and graduated from Jefferson High School.

The public servant served his community with integrity and respect without any corruption during his term. The community turn on him during the Hurricane Harvey Crises in 2017 1 year after his was elected into office.

Voters in Port Arthur also know as nickname “Trill City” in the Oil & Gas town said that they felt that the Derrick the mayor during his first term jilted them during the most devastating time in their lives.

“What I think about Derrick losing to Bartie was a scapegoat for people who were angry about a storm destorying their homes.

Hurricane Harvey almost wiped Port Arthur, TX off the map and flooded Houston, Beaumont, Lake Charles, Lumberton, Vidor, Liberty, Nederland, and many other places in Texas. The Gulf Coast was declared a state of emergency for weeks and months for many people whom never able moved back into their homes.

Everyone in Port Arthur was flooded including the Mayor of Port Arthur “Derrick Freeman.” This is from NPR when Derrick did an interview about how he was handling the crises.

Port Arthur new Mayor “Thurman Bartie won The Run Off Election by a landslide. Many people in Port Arthur jump on the bandwagon with the Pastor. Bun B cousin Derrick Freeman is now a real estate investor with his mother Mrs. Freeman and has a team of employees. Derrick Freeman Mom is his top sells agent and her adverstiment can been send on Commerical Real Estate in the Eastside Port Arthur “I call it The Freeman Take Over”. “LOL” I really feel Derrick did good things for the city.

He is family man and has been married to his high school sweetheart and college sweetheart for 20 years.

I voted for Mr. Freeman during both elections because, I supported the good changes he brought to the community. Derrick and his team turned Port Arthur Downtown into a nice venue for people to enjoy the city.

When I did my news story in Port Arthur on slum building and the community reinvest act Mr. Freeman got a grant for people to build new homes. I got a $60,000 a grant from the city of Port Arthur as a first time home buyer with an FHA loan.

Derrick Freeman can now be seen in the community through his real estate company Freeman Real Estate.

We reached out to Mr. Freeman for his side of the story but, have not heard anything back. We know Mr. Freeman is a good man and we would be open to allowing him to defend his name and legacy in Port Arthur Texas.

Port Arthur Still Loves their Former Mayor “Derick Freeman” and Thank You for your service of getting rid of the ugly buldings in Port Arthur and making it a nice place to live.
