Bernie Mac's Sister Speaks About His Death+Pics Of His Granddaughter

We lost one of the best comedians of our time to Pneumonia yesterday, Bernie Mac.  And now his sister Mary Ann Grossett has spoken with People.com about details of his death.  Bernie's wife of 30 years Rhonda and 30 year old daughter Je'Niece were both with him when he died.  Apparently he had to be recusitated twice; once he was brought back by the doctors, then went into cardiac arrest the second time.  His sister Mary Ann recalls her brother and sister-in-law's last conversation: [Rhonda said] 'Don't leave me … 'I'm waiting for you to come back.' He shrugged his shoulders, and she said that's when she knew he was tired. He signaled to her that his body was tired." You can check out the rest of the story at People as honestly I'm not really up to posting more of it due to the emotional nature of it.  You can also read some of his celebrity friends' words of rememberance here.  The funeral services will take place August 15th in an undisclosed location.  This is such a terrible loss.  R.I.P. Mr. Mac.

Ashanti In Page Six, Monica's Modern Life With Rocko, Solange Says Fck The Industry, Diddy & His Bottle Flee The Club

Continuing with the special weekend edition of YBF... Welcome back, for those who don't know who I am, I'm Zillz and I designed this blog and a "few" others. I'm from and live in VA. However I spend a lot of time in the DC and 7 cities areas. So I rep that baby-making state 2 up 2 down. If you ever need to contact me, I can be reached at zillz@zillasays.com Miss Good Good, Ashanti appears on the cover of Page Six... Ashanti Page Six
On her career coming to a halt in 2005: "That was the worst part—not having a say as to what's happening in my own life,” she says. "To a singer, that's like telling them they're dying. It was tragic.” On finding it hard to watch artists like Fergie and Rihanna fill her void: "I'd hear a song on the radio and wish mine was next. But I respect a lot of the artists who've come along since I was out, especially Rihanna. She's smart and she's worked the business instead of having the business work her.” Back in action now, Ashanti is even more driven, and not just with career. Having two children with her boyfriend and fellow artist Nelly, she says thoughts are turning to marriage. "I've been planning my wedding in my head since I was a little girl, and it just keeps getting more elaborate. I'm a huge fan of the Caribbean, so if I don't get married in New York, it would have to be on the beach.”

Ciara To Model For Vicky Secrets?+Michelle O. Keeps Date Night With Barack

Ciara is itching to expand her modeling portfolio now that she has signed on with Wilhelmina Modeling Agency.  She's telling folks that she not only can rock the Rocawear ads, but she's ready to expand into even more businesses.  And Victoria's Secret is already in the works.  Lisa Cambridge, a rep from Ciara's label, says: “It’s a perfect fit.  It plays with her personality and her coming of age. It’s tasteful, sexy and beautiful, just like her.”   Looks like she's about to get Pink happy in her draws.       And Michelle Obama is talking about how she maintains the romance through date nights with her hubby Barack in her latest interview with People: Another friend of yours told me about you and Barack slipping away for date nights on the campaign trail. Michelle: We were in this stadium and the staffers were like, 'You guys are going to have a date night.' They had set up a little room in the stadium with tablecloths and candles, and people came in and served, but we had, like, 10 minutes to eat. That was just squeezing it in, but it was fun, it was cute. You don't try to have a romantic [time] at the stadium. Our romantic [time] is almost every Saturday night or Friday night, if he's home. We spend the day with the girls doing girls' stuff and that's a family. Then we have date night, and the girls like it. As parents, you realize they do notice this stuff and it matters. You're worried about taking time away from the kids to be with each other when, in their minds, that's a good thing. It¹s like, 'Yeah, Mommy and Daddy, go! Go have dinner; it's so cute!' and that makes me feel like, 'Okay, I don't feel as bad that, after spending a day together, then we went and had a nice dinner while you had hamburgers with Grandma.'
