Also unimpressed is the 30-year-old beauty's 58-year-old mother Kris Jenner who 'thinks [Khloe]
needs to be single,' added an insider. The insider told the publication, '[Kris] worries that Khloe just got out of a marriage.' It was also claimed that Khloe had a fight with French at Jennifer Lopez's 45th birthday party in the Hamptons on July 24, but no details were given.

The first American Ebola patient, Dr. Kent Brantly, has arrived at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta where he will be treated in highly specialized units. And here's a video of the obviously weak doctor walking into the hospital (after the cut). Brantly's wife, parents and sister cried when they saw him on CNN, walking from the ambulance into the hospital, a family representative said on condition of anonymity. His wife, Amber, later said she was relieved that her husband was back in the United States.

"I spoke with him, and he is glad to be back in the U.S.," she said in statement sent to CNN. "I am
thankful to God for his safe transport and for giving him the strength to walk into the hospital."
Brantly's wife has visited her husband at the hospital and interacted with him from behind a glass wall for about 45 minutes, the family representative said. Kent Brantly was described as being "in great spirits and so grateful."

DEAR KD BLOG READERS: Why do some women find it hard to contribute in the home?


From a male KD BLOG reader:
I have been married for a year and a half and my marriage is not what I thought it would be. My wife does not like to contribute financially in the home. Given that I make more money than she does, but it's not a crime to help out with little things. Sometimes I come home to no food or food without meet or fish and when I ask her she says I didn't drop any money before leaving. Sometimes I come home from work very tired and there's no light. When I ask her what happened to the generator, she tells me there's no fuel. So she can't buy fuel? I have to do everything? She says her money is hers alone and to help her family but she keeps forgetting that I and our daughter should be her priority.
What can I do to make her change her ways? I'm not asking her to do much, just little things like buy the chicken or fish for stew and soup, and fuel sometimes when I'm not home. And

Punch reports that a statement issued on Friday evening by the state Commissioner for Information and Communications, Mr. Aniekan Umanah, said the public places targeted include churches, markets and schools, among others.

Ekiti Election fallout: New thinking on APC presidential ticket

 

The outcome of the Ekiti Gubernatorial election was a shocker to many in the All Progressives Congress, APC. However, only few could have predicted how that election result was going to affect the party’s thinking on its presidential platform

NEW permutations for the 2015 presidential ticket of the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC have emerged following the defeat of the party in the Ekiti gubernatorial election last month. Dr. Kayode Fayemi, the outgoing governor of the state who was defeated in that election, had according to party insiders, been in pole position to be projected as the party’s vice-presidential running mate in the 2015 election.

Fayemi was expected by many to run as the APC presidential running mate as the sitting governor of Ekiti State next year.
Fayemi’s prospects had brightened following serious objections to party leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu taking that slot on account of religious balancing. Tinubu is a Muslim and suggestions of him pairing with any of the leading Muslim aspirants in the North, especially Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, had been a major issue of contention.

Major issue of contention
Though there were insinuations that Tinubu did not mind, many party enthusiasts bothered by inscriptions of

Late Christy Essien Igbokwe's husband opens up on his new wife

 
Three years after he lost his wife, late iconic singer Christy Essien Igbokwe, Chief Edwin Igbokwe secretly married Oluchi Phillips. What many don't know about his new wife is that she's an actress who has featured in the highly watched soap opera, Tinsel, and aparingly in other movies.

The couple knew each other for many years and were good friends, so it was only natural that he would turn to her when he needed a partner to spend the rest of his life with. Mr Igbokwe explains;
"It was a family thing. I knew her father before the war. She is 42 years old. I also knew her mother. Even when my mother died many years ago, they came to pay condolence visit all the way from their place. You know, when people who are close to you are coming from a far place. They come with yam, palm oil and other things. They did that and that was when the mother introduced her to me as her daughter and I, as her son. It was mummy (late Christy Essien) that received them in Awka. So mummy knew her but there was nothing then. Let me tell you, you know mummy was spiritual. It wasn't me who invited her. What would I be proving if it was me who invited her? When mummy passed on, she came to Niteshift and other

We grind human heads to make powder for ladies in search of husbands - Native doctor

 
A native doctor and suspected ritual killer arrested by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Lagos State Police Command has said that he grinds human heads into powder as charm for ladies who are looking for choice husbands and big contracts.

Olasunkanmi Owolabi, a 43-year-old native of Oyo town, said the concoction is also used as cure for stubborn sores, mental illness, sickle cell anaemia and epilepsy. He also said had planned to establish a specialist native hospital if government gave him the approval.

Arrested with Owolabi were his two co-travellers, Clement Omodijie and Usman Saliu a.k.a. Alfa. Omodijie, a 54-year-old indigene of Ekpoma, Edo State, says he is married with three children. A grave digger at Gbogbo Cemetery, Ikorodu, Lagos on a monthly salary of N22,000, he said he had worked at the cemetery for five years before he was arrested by SARS operatives.
Saliu, a 31-year-old native doctor from Ilisa town in Osun State and Owolabi’s ally, said he trained as an alfa (Islamic cleric) at Ralwu Islamic School, Ikewu, Osun State where he claimed he spent nine years learning

According to a statement by the family's spokesperson Anneleise Burgess, Carl was coming back from a business trip to Polokwane, in South Africa's Limpopo province in a convoy with a colleague who was driving in another car behind him when a car suddenly pulled out in front of Carl and hit him head on.

Woman who implicated Lagos pastor in ritual scandal takes back her words, names another pastor

 
Remember the woman who was caught with her neighbour's 9 year old son and said a pastor told her to kidnap a child? Now she has gone back on her words,implicating yet another pastor.

Detectives investigating recent allegations of abduction against a Lagos based woman, Rosemary Chukwu, were recently jolted when the prime suspect named another pastor as the mastermind of the abduction.

The mother of four who earlier named an Ikorodu based Pastor and General Overseer of Holy Family Ministry, Ernest Chukwuemeka Nwankwo, as the man that instructed her to bring a seven-year-old boy for ritual purposes, reportedly named another Ikorodu- based pastor as the man that actually instructed her to abduct the boy.
Briefing newsmen recently on the out come of the report, the command spokeswoman, Ngozi Braide stated: “
Reports that a building owned by the church was a den for ritual killing were all lies.No victim of kidnap was

Marrying three wives is my destiny - OJB Jezreel

 
Many didn't know OJB Jezreel had three wives until recently. His first wife ended up donating one of her kidneys to him. Speaking to Punch, he says he won't advice anyone to marry three wives but said it was his destiny
I don’t think it has anything to do with fame. There are people without fame yet they married more than three wives. Those people are not even rich. I think it is destiny; there is no other way to explain it.
"It is everything. But predominantly, I think it is by design. Some people believe in destiny while some others don’t. I think it was destined to happen. I believe in destiny. I don’t think I would have survived it if it weren’t destined to be. People get shocked that I have three wives because I don’t live like somebody who has three wives. Come to think of it, there is no particular way

Islamic Clerics nabbed trading in human skulls (PHOTO)

 
Three suspected human parts dealers, two of them Islamic clerics, are now helping police detectives to break the demand and supply chain of a trans-border syndicate which trades in human skulls.

The suspects already arrested in connection with the illicit trade include Clement Omodijie as well as two clerics, Olasukunmi Owolabi and Usman Saliu.The suspects were nabbed recently when they were about to supply three human skulls to their buyers at Ikorodu.

According to police sources, the suspects alleged that the skulls found in their possession were sold to herbalists who in turn claimed that they used them to prepare concoctions for their sick customers. They also alleged that some were sold to customers from across the country who needed the skulls to perform rituals.

Looking sober and ready to bare it all, Omodijie, who works as a grave digger in the cemetery, pleaded that the only reason he succumbed to demands for human skulls was that the buyer, Owolabi, claimed that he

Fashola is Wrong - Singer Etcetera writes again...


    Governor Fashola is one of the most outstanding governors in Nigeria. Unlike some state governors, he should be duly commended for his style of governance, his vision for Lagos State, and achievements.

    But the recent approval of 10 days paternity leave and six months maternity leave for civil servants of the state has been greeted with mixed sentiments within and outside the state. The paternity leave for instance sounds ridiculous to me each time I think about it.
    What sounds even more laughable is the state Head of Service telling us that the new leave regime is meant to reduce the stress of the extensive work life of civil servants in the state. 

    Please, since when did we start attributing words like “extensive work” to civil servants in Nigeria? My father was a civil servant, I visited his workplace most times and can categorically say that most Nigerian civil servants don’t do any extensive work

    I was actually smiling thinking I had stumbled on a comedy show on TV, hearing her branding civil

I Don’t Think Earrings Add Extra Beauty to a Girl - Yvonne Nelson


                                   Yvonne Nelson - Zafaa 2013 - November 2013 - BellaNaija 02
 
When it comes to style, Yvonne Nelson knows more than a thing or two.
The Ghanaian actress is one of the entertainment industry’s leading style stars and has a fashion boutique.
In an interview with Punch, she discusses her style (of course), starting out as an actress, shopping and bleaching.
Read excerpts;
On tattoos and piercings: “I don’t even like wearing earrings. I haven’t worn any earrings for about five years. I can wear them in a movie but I’m not a fan. I don’t think it adds any extra beauty to a girl. I just don’t like it, it makes me feel uncomfortable and as if I’m overdressed. It makes my face look busy and I don’t like it. I like jewellery; I love wrist watches and rings too. I do not have any tattoo mainly because of the pain. I believe I have a beautiful skin, imagine how I always brag about my legs and I put a tattoo on it, why would I do that? I would not mind getting a tattoo, writing my mother’s first name somewhere on my body but it is just not my style. It is not something I think about. I see it on people and some of them are really nice because it is artistic.”
On her bikini photos: “I have not heard of anybody who would go to the beach wearing jeans and a

Rep for MFM Replies Pastor’s Allegations


         MFM Pastor - July 2014 - BellaNaija.com 01
 
On Tuesday, KD BLOG brought you the story about a pastor of the Mountain of Fire and Miracle Ministries Lawrence Okechukwu Amuruche who claimed that the General Overseer Pastor D.K. Olukoya refused to give him money to treat the cataracts growing in one of his eyes.
The 61-year-old father of two told The Sun that he was given anointing oil and water instead of the amount needed to treat his eye problem.
His aim for sharing the story was for the G.O and other good willing Nigerians to help him out financially from going blind. N900,000 was the amount he said he needed for both eyes.
Amuruche was ordered to retract the statement, and in the company of his Regional overseer and two other leaders, he visited the headquarters of the publication.
He didn’t speak throughout, but the Regional Overseer said;
“He lied against the church. His children who are based abroad, called to express their dissatisfaction over the publication. He did not only embarrass himself but his family, the church and some of us who are his friends in the church.
It is embarrassing because MFM has come to the point that if it comes to the area of assisting

        Nkiru Sylvanus' Glam Photos - July 2014 - BellaNaija.com 01 (4)
 
For months, Nkiru Sylvanus was under the radar – she was MIA at major red carpet events and social gatherings, and we didn’t get to see much on her social media accounts either.
But in the later part of 2014, the actress got her spotlight back by premiering her movie – The Voice, and releasing a glam shoot.
In a recent interview with Channels TV, Nkiru talked about the possibility of being a second wife.
She said, “It depends on who and the condition. Yes (I’ll seriously consider it), if the situation is right and the person is a good person, because there are situations and conditions that can actually make you find the right person in the wrong place and at the wrong time”.
Her comments sparked a little controversy and in a new interview with Punch Newspapers, she defends her statement and refuted reports that she is dating a politician.
“I had an interview on the television where I was asked if I could be a second wife for any reason and I said
