I have to start this week by giving Mary J. Blige “a lot of love”. Or, to stay with the theme of the ’90′s, some “real love”.
Earlier this week, TMZ broke that Mary J. Blige’s charity, Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women, was being sued for over a quarter of a million dollars! That’s right, over $250 smackers, based on a loan that was taken out a year ago.
From how things sound at time of publish, it seems as though Mary J. Blige put the wrong people in charge of the money and thus, the loan never got repaid. She has publicly stated it was her fault for having the wrong people in charge and that she will remedy things.
To me, that is very impressive. No excuses, no pointing fingers, but rather, “my bad, we’ll make it right.” Props to Mary for doing the right thing, both in this case and for working with this awesome charity in the first place!
Next, MAJOR 90′S CONCERT NEWS!!!! *** MAJOR *** !!!!

Finally, I received a tweet (@roundtrip90s) from Heather in Knoxville, who states: “You GOTTA get Bob Carlisle on the show. My Dad used 2 sing him 2 me. Thx”
Good call, since we played “Butterfly Kisses” on this weekends show!!! I will look into it – I actually tried about a year ago and got nowhere but Heather, for you, anything!
