Exclusive: Kirk Frost’s Secret Baby Mama To Join Love & Hip Hop Atlanta - blogged by: @eleven8 - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #KirkFrost is adding to his storyline and not in a good way. Sources tell #BallerAlert that the music mogul has allegedly fathered a child outside of his marriage and we’ll be watching the drama unfold on an upcoming season of #LHHATL. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last year Kirk was rumored to have impregnated a woman by the name of Jasmine. According to Jasmine’s pimp, Jasmine has been seeing Kirk behind #Rasheeda’s back for over a year. Jasmine has since had their son, who is around 6 months old. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The plot continues to thicken, however. According to @bossipofficial, Jasmine is suing Kirk for ditching her after she had their baby. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Jasmine, while she and Kirk were together, he encouraged her not to continue working as a stripper. In return he gave her a monthly allowance and car. When Jasmine broke things off last Halloween, things went sour. Kirk allegedly stopped supporting her and their child. Jasmine is now requesting that Kirk takes a paternity test to prove the baby is his, and pay $2,500 in child support. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Rasheeda is aware of the love child now, but not before Jasmine had already began filming scenes for #LHHATL. According to sources, Jasmine had begun filming scenes around Atlanta prior to Rasheeda finding out about the baby, and prior to Kirk finding out she was on the show. In fact, once word got back to Rasheeda that Kirk’s side chick was on the show, Rasheeda refused to continue filming. It was only after a long talk with production that Rasheeda returned. Reportedly, all of this drama will appear on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta’s upcoming season. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you ready to see this tea on your TV screen?
Donald Trump Signs Global Anti-Abortion Executive Order - blogged by @niksofly ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In 1984, Ronald Reagan put in place the #MexicoCityPolicy that compromised the access to reproductive health of women globally. The law prohibits nongovernmental agencies from receiving U.S. funding if the agencies include abortions as a service. The law goes so far as to cut off funding even if U.S. dollars aren't allocated for the services. It was deemed necessary by prospects who felt the #HelmsAmendment was insufficient. The Helms amendment of 1973 has prevented the United States from funding overseas abortions. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Depending on which party is in office, the law is rescinded or reinstated, with the latter move being made by republicans. The U.S. spends roughly about $600 M annually on international assistance and reproductive health for women . #HuffingtonPost states that 27 million women and couples globally are given access to contraceptive services and supplies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What does this mean? It means that women who are need of access to these services are now at risk of hurting themselves. When access is denied , these women might possibly take matters into their own hands often causing their ones deaths as they engage in unsafe abortion practices. "The World Health Organization estimates that more than 21 million women a year have unsafe abortions in developing countries, accounting for about 13 percent of all maternal deaths." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Reinstating this bill is complete hypocrisy as it isn't an effort to conserve life, but to dictate to women what they can do with their bodies. If conservation of life was the goal then the president would reform healthcare and protect the elderly and minorities that are often legally (and not always humanely ) euthanized in hospitals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Donald's cabinet doesn't reflect progress or hope. It is indicative of America's regression. May I extend a thank you to all that voted for this man (insert sarcasm).
