Exclusive: Roland Martin Believes He Can Change The Center Of Black Thought In America



American renowned journalist Roland Martin is set to anchor TV One’s new morning show News One Now and HipHollywood has all the deets on what viewers can expect.

During Roland’s annual Hollywood soiree on Wednesday night, the anchor dished on how News One Now is going to become the center of Black thought in America.

“It is important for us to do it on a Black platform, to where our stories are not secondary, not pushed to the side,” the 44-year-old shared.

Roland, who was just honored as “Journalist Of The Year” by the National Association Of Black Journalists, shared that the daily show is a way for the Black community to have a conversation.

“Political stuff, social, cultural, entertainment, you name it …  If we are talking about economics, we are talking about economics and how it relates to African Americans. We are talking about Black women starting businesses at a faster rate that everyone else,” Roland dished.

News One Now is set to launch in September.


Dr. Heavenly Explains Her ‘If My Husband Cheated He Didn’t Mean To’ Philosophy



Dr. Heavenly Kimes has an interesting philosophy on cheating … but then again we’re not surprised.

If you watch Married To Medicine then you know the successful Atlanta, GA dentist dotes on her husband, who she affectionately calls “daddy” and the two have a pretty solid marriage.  So much so, that Kimes believes if he ever cheated on her he didn’t mean to do it.

Kimes made that proclamation after news broke that Dr. Jackie’s husband was having an affair, and of course she had the ladies scratching their heads. HipHollywood sat down with her to get more insight on her viewpoint. Here’s what she had to say.

“I said something that I think a lot of people feel but would not say it, because it’s not a politically correct thing to say,” she explained. “I said if my husband cheated he would not mean to do it. I stand by it, it may sound silly, it may sound funny, I’m not trying to be funny, I don’t think he would have meant to do it.”

“I can’t say it was her, I’m not going to put it all on her, but it had to have been something to make that man go that far,” she adds referring to the other woman. “Maybe I’m naive but I don’t think my husband would just cheat on me and mean to cheat.”

To her credit, Kimes is also a certified relationship coach and has been dishing her advice (solicited or not) to the other wives since season 2. She ended her explanation comparing cheating to a person on a diet. The analogy was pretty hilarious, but actual made a lot of sense.

“I like to compare sex to food because they go together,” she says. “If you’re hungry and you know you’re on a diet and you’re really really trying really hard and somebody comes with a buffet of your favorite foods and lays it all out for you and starts putting … you didn’t mean to eat it but you ate it.”

So do you agree Heavenly? Let us know in the comments below.
