Last night, I attended a screening for TV One’s new movie, When Love Kills. Lil Mama plays Falicia Blakely, a young, impressionable woman who prostitutes herself, steals, and kills to secure the love of an abusive man named Big Dino (played by Lance Gross).

The Bomb Life 101: Finding Your Purpose

So I’ll admit it. While I love to indulge in Love and Hip Hop and Real Housewives, I now spend a lot of time watching the greats via YouTube. OBVIOUSLY one of my faves is Queen Oprah. Below, she spoke to Stanford students on Finding Your Purpose in Life and Living Your Dream. It’s a must watch.
