Publisher’s Letter publisher / Staff Welcome to the spring 2013 edition of ONETEN Magazine. Issue number 2 of the re-branding of ONETEN. It is still hard to believe it has been over 5 years since I launched ONETEN. It is exciting and unbelievable that we are still here going strong. We have seen the publication game change a whole lot since then. Over the years many people have been apart of ONETEN over the years. Some have came and went and a few are still around, but that’s apart of doing business. With the new start of ONETEN we have changed our focus point to a model and fashion based magazine from an artist based magazine. So we will see where the next chapter takes us. Now in this you will find a few sexy ladies of all flavors. We want to showcase some of sexiest eye candy out. So we hope you enjoy this issue until next time.

ummer is quickly approaching, and that means more celebrity dirt and gossip. I don’t know what it is about warmer days that make celebrities act a monkey doodle fool, but whatever it is; it just makes my job and this column a whole lot more interesting. Not that the colder months made them behave any better. Don’t believe me? Then check out the juicy tidbits I have for you on everyone
from a ‘suit and tie’ loving blue-eyed soul singer to a retired sports legend, and get in on the buzz surrounding VH1’s latest reality TV show by reading on. One of the biggest mysteries in reality TV land is the reason behind the TLC 6
network’s cancellation of “Starter Wives Confidential”, which details the lives of Josie Harris (ex-fiancee of Floyd Mayweather), Liza Morales (ex-girlfriend of Lamar Odom), Tashera Simmons (ex-wife of DMX), Monica Joseph-Taylor (exwife of Funkmaster Flex), Zakia Baum (ex-girlfriend of Maino), and Cheryl Caruso (ex-wife of Phil Caruso), who all had relationships with their famous exes prior to the wealth and stardom, making them what they are today. Although the brass at TLC claims they abruptly pulled the show from their lineup because of poor ratings, many theories behind why the show got cancelled remain. One of those theories involves hip-hop star 50 Cent, who managed to block his ex and baby mama, Shaniqua Tompkins, from appearing on the show. Shortly after TLC announced the show’s cancellation, 50 took to Twitter to take credit for it, saying, “The show was trash, angry ex girls that have a sense
of entitlement that cant be met. Come on, I didn’t like it so its off.” Not surprisingly, a few of the women from the cast have denied 50 had anything with the show getting snatched off the air, including Zakia, who I got to speak to in depth about what happened with “Starter Wives” when she recently called my radio show. She told my co-hosts and I, “I can tell you one thing, 50 Cent did not have anything to do with us being pulled off. I know he put that rumor out there, and I don’t even know why he would care. He succeeded at; I don’t even know if he succeeded. I’m not even going to get into that. I can’t even talk about that with Shaniqua not being on the show, who would have been such a pivotal person on the show. She’s a wonderful and awesome person. I love her. She is the one, we are the closest.” During our chat with Zakia, I pointed out that
“Starter Wives Confidential” may have fared better if it had been on a network like VH1. She agreed, and expressed hope that we
haven’t seen or heard the last of the ‘Starter Wives’. In the meantime, TLC has posted the remaining episodes that didn’t make it on the air on their website at www.TLC.com.
After fourteen years of marriage, Pilar and Deion Sanders are now embroiled in one of the ugliest divorces in sports history. News of the once happy couple’s split made headlines late in 2011, and since then, rumors and accusations of abuse and infidelity have taken center stage as the duo battle over custody of their three children and a massive $250 million estate. Deion,
works as a NFL Network analyst, hasn’t hesitated to talk about the drama and Pilar (not too long ago calling her the “ultimate gold digger”) in interviews and on social networking sites, but as the cliché goes, there’s two sides to every story. During the Christmas holiday, I got the chance to talk very candidly with Pilar about this very messy situation, and one of the things that stood out about our conversation is the abuse she claims to have suffered at the hands of her estranged husband. She told me, “Most recently, every picture on the web would show that my arm was broken and he busted my thumb in attempts to knock me out, kill me, yeah. And maybe, perhaps, people will believe it more so now, that, unfortunately, they were seeing this season. The very drastic increase of athletes, football players who snap, and unfortunately, take their lives and other people’s lives with them. It’s not that far off, it’s not uncommon among athletes. It’s very, very, very not uncommon when you speak with other NFL wives, football wives, athletes’ wives.” Messy, just messy.
Is the latest music beef between Kanye West and Justin Timberlake? JT recently served as host and musical guest on an episode of “SNL”, but what stood out about his performance of “Suit & Tie” occurred midway through when he took what many perceive as a shot at Kanye West. Although most people watching “SNL” missed it, JT changed some of the
lyrics to the song from “Aww, s**t so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit” to “my hit’s so sick got RAPPERS acting dramatic.” The blue-eyed soul singer’s decision to tweak the lyrics most likely was a response to ‘Ye, who in February went on a rant at his show in London during which
he said to the crowd “I got love for Hov, but I ain’t f– king with that ‘Suit & Tie.’” JT and Jay-Z will partner up this summer for the “Legends of the Summer” tour, which kicks off July 17th in Toronto, Ontario at the Roger’s Centre and continue through August 16th in Miami at Sun Life Stadium. Tickets can be purchased at www.LiveNation.com.
One of the things I’m looking forward to in the spring is the premiere of VH1’s newest reality show, “The Gossip Game”. The show will follow the lives of some of my fellow gossipnistas and urban media
personalities, including Vivian Billings (NYC Gossip Girl), Ms. Drama (Major Playaz), Angela Yee (Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club), and Kim Osorio (Editor-InChief of The Source magazine). If you want to know what my life is like, then you definitely should tune in when the show premieres on April 1st at 9pm on VH Unfortunately, I’ve run out of space!! Be sure to tune in every weekend as I spill the tea about your favorite celebrities on North Carolina’s Coast 97.3 FM, or tune into Street Disciplez Radio by logging onto www.SDWorldVision.com or http:// www.i-SoulRadio.com.

Investing in Real Estate by Toby Cook
Real estate investing involves the purchase, ownership, management, rental and/or sale of real estate for profit. Improvement of realty property as part of a real estate investment strategy is generally considered to be a subspecialty of real estate investing called real estate development. Real estate is an asset form with limited liquidity relative to other investments, it is also capital intensive (although capital may be gained through mortgage leverage ) and is highly cash flow dependent. If these factors are not well understood and managed by the investor, real estate becomes a risky investment. The primary cause of investment failure for real estate is that the investor goes into negative cash flow for a period of time that is not sustainable, often forcing them to resell the property at a loss or go into insolvency. A similar practice
known as flipping is another reason for failure as the nature of the investment is often associated with short term profit with less effort. Real Estate Investing is no longer the special past time of wealthy businessmen. In todayâ€™s world real estate has become a common financial motion for people from all walks of life. This trend will likely to continue to perform will into the predictable future. This change is due to elimination and concentration on company pension plans. Personal investing guide has replaced these plans as the preferred way to plan for retirement. Since virtually all of us have realized the importance of having a guide and adequate money upon reaching retirement age, many individuals have rec-

Destiny’s Child / Love Songs While it was issued just prior to the group’s reunion performance during the halftime show of Super Bowl XLVII and, oh yeah, Valentine’s Day 2013, Love Songs is more thoughtful than expected. “Cater 2 U” is the lone inclusion that was released as a single, unless you count Timbaland’s slinky mix of “Say My Name.” Otherwise, this is a sharp selection of deep album cuts, including one from Kelly Rowland’s Simply Deep (“Heaven”), that demonstrates the group’s depth behind the hits. The one new song, “Nuclear,” is a knockout. Produced by Pharrell, it sounds more like something released in 1990 by the Chimes, Soul II Soul, or the Family Stand than any pop-R&B circa 2013. By Andy Kellman
Charlie Wilson / Love, Charlie Charlie Wilson’s fourth album in eight years -- his fourth consecutive release to feature his first name in the title -- is his most modest and low-key set. Some listeners might bemoan the increasingly reserved nature of Wilson’s releases since the singer’s unexpected 2000s resurgence, but the direction is natural. It would make little sense for him to continue teaming with songwriters and producers accustomed to working with pop-oriented R&B artists less than half his age. Besides, these love songs -- all of which were co-written beside wife Mahin Wilson and an assortment of others -- are not lacking in energy and spirit. For someone who has been through as much as Wilson, who beat prostate cancer, seemingly basic sentiments expressed in “If I Believe” and “I Still Have You” ring clearly and loudly with conviction and vigor. While it does not feature as many standouts as the three previous “Charlie” albums, Love, Charlie is another enjoyable and genuine addition to the catalog of a funk heavyweight. By Andy Kellman

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt’s growing ego. But lately the duo’s greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they’ve grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray, whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show looks stale. But there’s still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act - both onstage and off - if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place. Olympus Has Fallen When the President is kidnapped by a terrorist who seizes control of the White House, disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped within the building. As the national security team rushes to respond, they must rely on Banning’s insider knowledge to save the President and prevent an even greater catastrophe.

Flex a little brain musule is your downtime. It’s always good to pick up a book and read to keep the mind sharp.
Combining a fascinating history of the first U.S. high school for African Americans with an unflinching analysis of urban publicschool education today, “First Class” explores an underrepresented and largely unknown aspect of black history while opening a discussion on what it takes to make a public school successful. In 1870, in the wake of the Civil War, citizens of Washington, DC, opened the Preparatory High School for Colored Youth, the first black public high school in the United States; it would later be renamed Dunbar High and would flourish despite Jim Crow laws and segregation. Dunbar attracted an extraordinary faculty: its early principal was the first black graduate of Harvard, and at a time it had seven teachers with PhDs, a medical doctor, and a lawyer. During the school’s first 80 years, these teachers would develop generations of highly educated, successful African Americans, and at its height in the 1940s and ‘50s, Dunbar High School sent 80 percent of its students to college. Today, as in too many failing urban public schools, the majority of Dunbar students are barely proficient in reading and math. Journalist and author Alison Stewart--whose parents were both Dunbar graduates--tells the story of the school’s rise, fall, and possible resurgence as it looks to reopen its new, state-of-the-art campus in the fall of 2013. 14
In the Deep South of the 1950s, journalist John Howard Griffin decided to cross the color line. Using medication that darkened his skin to deep brown, he exchanged his privileged life as a Southern white man for the disenfranchised world of an unemployed black man. His audacious, still chillingly relevant eyewitness history is a work about race and humanity-that in this new millennium still has something important to say to every American..
Based on rigorous research and analysis, this book is unique because it includes first-hand accounts: the pilot’s stories are here, as are the experiences of the mechanics, band members, staff officers, nurses, and more. Altogether, the Tuskegee Experience and the successes of the all-black flying squadrons in Europe proved that they had courage and perseverance not only in war, but in peacetime as well.
Here is the remarkable true story of the real Count of Monte Cristo – a stunning feat of historical sleuthing that brings to life the forgotten hero who inspired such classics as The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers. The real-life protagonist of The Black Count, General Alex Dumas, is a man almost unknown today yet with a story that is strikingly familiar, because his son, the novelist Alexandre Dumas, used it to create some of the best loved heroes of literature. Yet, hidden behind these swashbuckling adventures was an even more incredible secret: the real hero was the son of a black slave -- who rose higher in the white world than any man of his race would before our own time. Born in Saint-Domingue (now Haiti), Alex Dumas was briefly sold into bondage but made his way to Paris where he was schooled as a sword-fighting member of the French aristocracy. Enlisting as a private, he rose to command armies at the height of the Revolution, in an audacious campaign across Europe and the Middle East – until he met an implacable enemy he could not defeat.
Is This Love or Emotional Dependency By Margaret Paul, Ph.D.
Love or Emotional
ne of my clients, whose ex-girlfriend recently broke up with him, asked me the following question:
“I think I still love her, but is this love or just emotional dependency? Many times I ask myself if falling in love comes from the wounded self because (for me at least) it feels as if I can’t live without the other person. When I give love from the heart I don’t expect anything back, but when I fall in love I think this is a different energy.”
Falling in love can come from two different inner states. When you fall in love from the wounded self – the ego self – you are in love with how the other person loves you. You are handing over to the other person the responsibility for your self-worth and wellbeing, and if he or she does a good job of attending to you in the way you want to be attended to, then you may say you are “in love.” However, it is not so much the person you love, but how he or she loves you. When it feels as if you can’t live without the other person, it is emotional dependency. The part of you that is “in love” is really a child or adolescent who is needy for love because you are not giving love to yourself or to others. There is an emptiness inside that you expect someone else to fill, because you are not taking responsibility for your own feelings of self-worth. You are attaching your worth to another’s love, which is why you can’t live without that person. When you fall in love as a loving adult instead of as a wounded, needy child or adolescent, your need for the relationship is totally different. As a loving adult, you have learned how to fill yourself with love and define your own worth. Instead of needing someone to fill you and make you feel lovable and worthy, you already feel
worthy and full of love. You experience this inner fullness because you have learned how to take full responsibility for your own feelings and needs, and you have learned to fill yourself with love from a Divine Source. This fullness overflows and you want to share this love with another person, another loving adult who is also filled with love. Your desire is to share love rather than to get love.
The kind of person you will pick will be totally different when a loving adult is choosing than when your wounded self is choosing. The people we pick have a similar level of woundedness and a similar level of emotional health. Obviously, the more you have done your inner work to connect with Divine Love and bring that love within to take loving care of yourself, the more you will be attracted to someone also does this. When you pick from your wounded self, you will pick someone whom you believe wants the job of filling you up. The problem is that the other person may be attempting to fill you up in the hopes that you will also fill up him or her. Two people who each want to get love rather than share love will eventually find themselves very disappointed with each other. They will each blame the other for not loving them in the way they want to be loved. When relationships break up, it is often because one or both partners are not taking responsibility for their own feelings and self-worth and are blaming the other for their resulting unhappiness.
If you are so attached to someone that you feel you can’t live without that person, try learning to give to yourself and others what it is you want from this person. Your job is to become the person to yourself that you want the other person to be. Then you will be able to be “in love” rather than “in need.” You will be able to love another person for who he or she is rather than for what this person can do for you. Instead of needing to get love, you can give love from the heart for the joy of it and feel filled in the giving. ONETEN MAGAZINE
