D’Souza Exposed By Christian Magazine

It would seem that it’s not only “evil” liberals seeing through conservative pundit and trash writer Dinesh D’Souza’s act. It appears Dinesh is dumping his wife of 20 years for a Trophy Girlfriend half her age…

Dinesh D’Souza Fiancée Scandal Rocks The King’s College

Dinesh D'SouzaConservative provocateur Dinesh D’Souza, riding a wave of attention for his successful anti-Obama documentary, 2016: Obama’s America, suddenly finds himself swamped by a different sort of attention, this time over his alleged relationship with a 29-year-old woman with whom he shared a hotel room and described as his “fiancée” despite still being married to his wife of 20 years.

The evangelical magazine World reported Tuesdaythat D’Souza, who is also the president of The King’s College in Manhattan, shared a hotel room with Denise Odie Joseph at a conference in South Carolina in September and introduced her to at least three people as his fiancée. A conference organizer confirmed to World that D’Souza and Joseph had both checked in to the hotel and left together, and D’Souza confirmed to the magazine that he and Joseph were engaged. But California court records show that he only filed for divorce from his wife on Oct. 4, which means he will be married for at least another six months. D’Souza later sent a text message to World’s reporter saying that he had decided to “suspend” the engagement.

Joseph graduated from high school in 2002, according to her Facebook page, and attended Georgetown University’s law school. Her website, I Denise Lust After, appeared to be taken offline, but a blog she authors on the site Smart Girl Politics remains active.

D’Souza moved from California to New York in 2010 to become the president of The King’s College, a small evangelical school with headquarters in Manhattan’s financial district, leaving his wife behind in California. According to former staffers who worked closely with D’Souza, his wife didn’t want to move, and the distance put a strain on their marriage. In early 2012, Joseph began showing up at the college, which was then headquartered in the Empire State Building, where students and staff eventually noticed her inexplicable presence. A former student said people would ask about Joseph, whom he described as “pushy,” but would be met with “weird smiles” and evasive answers. That student said one of his friends, a staffer who worked closely with D’Souza, was tasked with creating an official response to the speculation, which was that she was “a good friend of Dinesh.” The student said staffers he knew believed Joseph made her presence known at the college because she wanted to be more than D’Souza’s “road tail.” Continue reading

No Superwoman Anymore for Stevie Wonder…

 

Stevie Wonder files for divorce from fashion designer Kai Millard Morris

Music legend Stevie Wonder wants a judge to sign, seal and deliver a divorce.

The Motown megastar is pulling the plug on his decade-long marriage to fashion designer Kai Millard Morris, a rep confirmed to the Daily News.

“Today Stevland Morris filed for divorce, ending his marriage to Kai Millard Morris,” a statement from the rep said. “As this is a private and personal matter, he asks that the public and the media kindly respect the privacy of Kai, his children, and family at this time.”

The Grammy winner, whose hits include “Superstition,” “I Just Called to Say I Love You” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours,” has been separated from Morris since October 2009, the paperwork obtained by TMZ states.

Wonder, 62, cited irreconcilable differences and signed the docs July 26 with two fingerprints.

He’s requesting joint custody of the couple’s two sons, Kailand and Mandla, ages 10 and 7.

That Marriage Gap Thing

This has been one of the most reliable buckdances for black conservatives over the past decade or so. Getting their white conservative benefactors all hot and bothered over the “70% illegitimacy rate” (even if the numbers don’t mean what they claim) and the idea of black folks having wild sex has meant a stable payday for a number of the Uncle Tom set.

They have ignored two key facts.1) The illegitimacy rate is related to income. And 2) Marriage rates are falling rapidly for nearly all segments of the population. Often radical social change in America is presaged by changes in the black community…

Retired Georgia Supreme Court Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears connects it as an American problem.

Why the marriage gap is bad for America

Over the past 40 years, marriage has foundered among the poor, with the nation’s attention especially focused on the decline of marriage in poor black communities. But an important new report finds that “the retreat from marriage has now clearly moved into the precincts of [both] black and white Middle America.”

The report, “When Marriage Disappears: The Retreat from Marriage in Middle America,” was released by the National Marriage Project, a nonpartisan initiative at the University of Virginia directed by family scholar W. Bradford Wilcox.

Wilcox’s study finds that over the last 30 years, among what the report calls “Middle Americans” (the 58% of moderately educated Americans who have a high school degree), the proportion of children born outside of marriage skyrocketed from 13% to 44% while the portion of adults in an intact first marriage dropped from 73% to 45%.

Meanwhile, among financially well-off Americans (the 30% who have a college degree or higher), the proportion of children born outside of marriage climbed only slightly from 2% to 6%, the divorce rate dropped from 15% to 11%, and intact first marriages dropped from 73% to 56%.

In sum, the relationships of Middle Americans increasingly resemble those of the poor while marriage among upscale Americans are only getting better in many respects. Continue reading
