Why do women have sex? + Chris Brown & GUS 5 pictures

A guy told me a few hours ago, that women have sex for different reasons...none of which is just for pleasure. According to him, men have sex mostly for pleasure, while women do it for...
~Procreation
~Pleasing their men
~Duty as a wife
~Material gains
~Because their friends are doing it

That's why men PAY for sex and women DON"T!
We don't have sex for pleasure? (Bo ya lo mo...lol)
And Women don't pay for sex???
Hmmmm...what has anyone got to say about this?

Meanwhile here are pictures from Gulder Ultimate Search 5, currently filming in Enugu...

Naija Ent. News

The closure of THIRD MAINLAND bridge has been postponed to August 2nd. The government wants to provide alternative means before shutting down the bridge that has been rumoured to be vibrating for a while now. The initial date for closure was today but the State Government protested against it...so we have till august before the madness begins. But if the bridge is really vibrating, then we welcome the repair works. Better late than sorry eh? And thanks to the Federal Government for giving Lagosians notice.

Genevieve Nnaji, Ghanaian producer in messy fight
'I didn't collect $110, 000 from her' Genevieve
By Stella Dimoko Korkus

According to the rumour making rounds, actress Genevieve Nnaji was reportedly fired from a movie set, Tulip, after being paid over $110, 000. The rumour alleged that the actress made herself unavailable to the producers and the was rude when she was eventually contacted, thus leading to he being 'fired' from the set. We contacted Genevieve to hear her own side of the story and this is her response...

Stella ' What is this Tulip story being circulated and what actually happened. We heard you made demands to take your PA with you amongst other demands
Genevieve"A Ghanaian lady called Leila Djansi, living in America set up a company and decided to shoot a movie. She approached and I told her to send the script. She did and I liked the role. I told her I would be interested based on contract negotiations and rest of cast. She got back to me and I was informed that I would be working alongside Kimberly Elise and some up and coming Ghanaians actors. I made no demand whatsoever. I was told a Ghanaian would be my PA while shooting in some villages in Ghana and I said NO, I already had one and would even be willing to pay her ticket to Ghana, but I will not use a stranger. There was no trip to America mentioned until October, so I could never have demanded to take my PA along although I want to state that if I felt like it, I would have requested it. After all, when we bring foreign acts over here, we allow them to come with nutritionist, PA and whoever they choose to bring. So this is a lie, 'demands' were not made. I was asked to forward recent pictires for their promo campaign, measurement details and address to send contract to in Nigeria, I did all those things. What did I get in return? Leila Djansi began stalking me with calls about how Ghanaians are angry she hired a Nigerian actress. How people were telling her I'm a snob and so on. Discussions were held and we concluded this is normal, that there will ayways be haters and I'm used to it. But I am a professional , so I was not interested in ldle gossip."
Were you fired from this movie or you left of your own?
Genevieve "I lost interest because she now seemed like the regular African in the Disapora who wanted to shoot a movie and some of them even appraoch without a script and think just because they are based in the States, Nigerian acts should jump on and kiss their ass. Leila started hounding me with calls. I was tired of someone who wanted to trade gossip and be my 'friend' rather than talk about the movie. I don't work like that, so I stopped taking her calls and insisted that we communicate via email until she had sent the final script. This was not good enough for her. She insisted on speaking with me on the phone and when I refused, she lost it and things degenerated to where they are now. This led to Leila insulting me, Nollywood, Ghanawood and everyone. She told me how she has witnesses she will roll out to show that Genevieve has a bad reputation , how she's severing the contract and all that, but there was no contract. How can terminate a contract that did not exist in the first place? She never paid me any money. She said derogatory things and I quote "A bit of advise, nobody in Hollywood gives about your Nigerian and Ghanaian film industry, you are the only people who glory in your inferior work. You really think someone here will sit through an hour and a half pure torture of the same freaky music playing over the movie and the screaming and the tantrums? You really think I want anyone here to think Africans are crazy?
That's what she told me. I have said for years that I am not desperate for Nollywood. I am an actress and I want to act in the best and I want to act in the best stories and in the best produced movies with thorough professionals. If a Hollywood studio offers me a movie, they will approach me as true professionals they are and I will respond as I always have, like a professional. But if fans based in the US think because they are based in the US, I should abandon all my work ethics and policies that have kept me where I am for over 10 years and will continue to keep me at the top of my profession, then they must be deluded and I told Djansi that, along with infroming her that Nollywood is African made and we are proud and if we had half the resources or time that Hollywood actors have, we would just be as good, if not better...."

The interview went on and on, but I'm going to stop here...im tired of typing..lol. But seriously I don't care what anyone says, I love Geneveive Nnaji. I just think she's a little misunderstood...

Naeto C's Album is out...

Jokes
Duties of a Wife
Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had giventheir new wives duties.

The 1st man had married an Asian woman

and bragged that he had told his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning. He said it took a couple of days but on the 3rd day he came home to a clean house and the dishes were done.

The 2nd man had married a White woman.

He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. On the 1st day he didn't see any results, but the next day it was better. By the 3rd day, his house was clean, the dishes were done and he had a huge dinner on the table.

The 3rd man married a Black woman.

He boasted that he had told her that her duties were to keep the house clean, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the 1st day he didn't' see anything, the 2nd day he didn't see anything but by the 3rd day most of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye; enough to fix himself a bite to eat, load the dishwasher and call a landscaper.


Gotta love those Black women!!!! -
LOL!!!

What sex is your computer?
A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. 'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la casa.' 'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.' A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?'
Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether 'computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.

The men's group decided that 'computer' should d efinitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora' ), because:
1 No one but their creator understands their internal logic;
2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else;
3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and
4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.
The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ('el computador') , because:
1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on;
2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves;
3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time > > they ARE the problem; and
4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.
Naturally, the women won.
LOL!!!
Have a beautiful week ahead.
