Dear LIB Readers: Does Marriage Destroy Friendship?

Dear Linda, I am so angry right now that I can't even explain. She was my best friend for 13 years. My very best friend since our high school days. We did everything together, even lived together in my parents house for a few years before she met her husband. She got married last December and I've only seen her twice since then. Everytime I call her for a meet up, she comes up with one excuse or the other. I've only ever been invited to her matrimonial home once. These days I am so anxious about calling because she acts like I am disturbing her. Her marriage has put a huge strain on our friendship and I am devastated. I never thought marriage would take my best friend away. Please help share with your readers and ask them if friendship have to change when one party gets married and the other remains single? And what's the best way to deal with this anger I feel towards her?

Please share your thoughts.

I need someone who is there to support me, who is confident. Anyone who's with me needs to be confident. I haven't got time to be massaging any man's ego. My ideal man is someone with a Johnny Depp personality and with Boris Kodjo's lip (laughs)." Genevieve said in her interview with New African Woman magazine.

TY Bello performs live on stage for the first time in years

After years of refusing to perform her songs live on stage (for reason she's never made public), singer and photographer, TY Bello took to the stage to perform for the first time as a solo artist at the Lunch With President Goodluck pre-inauguration ceremony that took place last week Tuesday, May 24, 2011. She also performed yesterday at the president's inauguration.

I hear the last time she performed on stage was as a member of KUSH back in 2004. After 7 years, she's back. Glad she had a change of heart. She's a fantastic singer!
