Ex Claims Keshia Knight Pulliam Broke Custody Deal to Be With Cosby

Image
Keshia Knight Pulliam’s decision to escort Bill Cosby into his sexual assault trial was not only selfish, it violated a court order in her child custody agreement … according to her ex himself.

In new legal docs, Ed Hartwell says he only gets to see their daughter, Ella Grace, for one hour twice a week, but Keshia traveled out of state with her to be by Cosby’s side on Day 1 of the trial.

Hartwell says she trampled his visitation rights because he was supposed to get Ella on Tuesday, but apparently Keshia was still out of town.

Hartwell says Pulliam’s in contempt and wants a make-up visit with his girl, pronto. He also wants her to cover all court and lawyer fees for this. Of course, Keshia recently called out Ed, claiming he’s behind on child support payments.

6 things you need to do when you don't like your husband

Image
Being married is an interesting experience. You're madly in love with this person you've chosen to spend the rest of your life with and you can't get enough of him. You look him in the eyes and wonder how you ever lived without him and you just want to give him everything you possibly can because your husband deserves the very best.

    Well ... that's the case most of the time.

    Sometimes, you start having small arguments. Or maybe kids are making married life harder than you thought possible.Perhaps your spouse just switched jobs. At some point, life will get in the way and may make you forget the excitement you once had for your hubby. While you still love your husband with your whole heart, there might be times when you don't really like him.

    Whether you're sick of him leaving messes around the house or when he goes and buys something he definitely didn't need, you might have a lack of "like" for your sweetheart. Here are six things you n…

4 Ways to Keep it Together When Your Life is Falling Apart

Image
Are you one to crumble at life’s circumstances? Or do you allow them to make you stronger?
When life brings something painful or you simply feel like your life is falling apart, how you respond makes all the difference in the world.

You and I can either react emotionally and escalate the drama of the situation. Or we can respond biblically and grow through it.

    As I was writing my book, Drama Free, it occurred to me that there are two kinds of drama in life: 1) The drama that life brings and God allows; and 2) The drama that we create through our response to life.


The drama that life brings is inevitable. Yet how we respond to it determines whether or not it will be fruitful in our lives in conforming us to the image of Christ. Our response to the drama also determines whether God gets the glory or we shine the spotlight on our frailties, insecurities, and emotional instability.

With help from God’s Word, plus some practical guidance, you and I can be drama free – even when the unthin…

5 Interesting Things That Happen When You Sleep

Image
Sleeping seems like such an unremarkable event, but there is so much more to sleep than we realize. Jumia Travel shares 5 interesting things that happen when you sleep.
You Sleep in Stages When you first fall asleep, you typically have a sleep cycle that starts with the NREM (non-rapid eye movement) stage, before you progress into a deeper NREM 2 and then NREM 3 (also called slow wave sleep). You finally land in the rapid eye movement (REM) stage of sleep, which is the stage most of your dreams occur. All these stages happen between 90 to 120 minutes, after which you wake up for like a second (most times without even realizing it) and then begin stage 1 again.

Your Body Temperature Drops
This is why it’s so easy to fall asleep when in a cool room or after a cool shower. This coolness actually mimics what your body is doing naturally, making it easier for you to immediately sleep off, because while you sleep your core temperature drops. In addition, during the REM stage of your sleep, y…
