Sherri Shepherd Releases Trailer for Her Upcoming Talk Show ‘Sherri’

Hello World,

My sincere condolences to the people in Uvalde, Texas who are grieving the loss of their children and loved ones. I don’t understand why our government doesn’t seem to want to make it harder rather than easier to access guns in the wake of increasing school shootings, but that is another post entirely…This post is about Sherri Shepherd…

Sherri Shepherd is getting ready for her talk show “Sherri” that will debut this fall! Check out the new trailer for “Sherri” below. Sherri begins the trailer by saying, “It is my lifelong dream to have my own show, and it’s finally happening. I am so excited to welcome you to the official kick off. This is my time.” Congrats to Sherri again!!! We will be watching…

Pastor Wayne Chaney of Preachers of L.A. Announces Divorce From Myesha Chaney On Social Media…

Hello World,

What is happening on the West Coast with cute and Christian celebrity couples?! Back in December, DeVon Franklin & Meagan Good announced on social media that their nine-year marriage was coming to an end and now, Pastor Wayne Chaney, who leads Antioch Church of Long Beach, has announced in an Open Letter on social media that he and his wife are getting divorced after nearly 17 years of marriage?! The announcement included five parts…I will post the entire announcement with some snippets below…

*Neither of us ever imagined, when we stood before one another, God and witnesses, in our early twenties, that our union would not endure a lifetime. Sadly, however, after nearly two decades together, Myesha and I mutually agree our time journeying together as husband and wife has come to a loving but necessary conclusion…

*It was not infidelity, abuse, or any gross immoral act that brought us to this point. Rather, we have simply evolved into expressly different people than we were in our early twenties when we eagerly clung to one another and set out to make a life for ourselves…

*While sharing this news with the church, Body of Christ and all who have been inspired by our marriage and ministry is difficult; it pales in comparison to the crushing pain of not being able to reconcile or fix the reality of my children’s deepest longing…

All heartbreaking, right? If you’re not familiar with Pastor Wayne Chaney, back in 2013, he along with several other pastors such as Bishop Noel Jones and Pastor Dietrick Haddon were featured on a reality show entitled “Preachers of L.A.” Click on this LINK to read one of my posts about the show. And I interviewed Myesha Chaney when she released her book “Hiding Behind the Lipstick.” Click on this LINK for that interview. I wonder why she didn’t include the divorce announcement on her page if it was a mutual decision. Additionally, what she did post is kind of mysterious. See her post below…

And on her IG page, just last month, she posted this…

Finally, this post seems bittersweet…

I don’t want to question their judgment but if their pending divorce was not caused by any “infidelity, abuse, or any gross immoral act,” then what could possibly warrant breaking up after all that they have built together? But I guess that’s not for me to know…

I said this before, and I will say it again, barring “infidelity, abuse, or any gross immoral act,” I would have to be unhappy for a looong time before I consent to a divorce…but y’all, I cannot help but think the pandemic contributed even in a miniscule way…Of course I cannot say how, but I just believe I’m right…I truly think we will be experiencing the ravages of the pandemic for years to come…I’m referring to more than our health…

Let’s pray for the Chaneys…maybe they will find a way to come back together…All things are still possible with God…

Rev. Marita Harrell Allegedly Stabbed and Burned to Death By Recently Released Prisoner Whom She Was Mentoring…

Hello World,

I know God has called us to “proclaim freedom for the prisoners “ but some prisoners need to stay their behinds in jail as they are not fit to live in society…

Tragically, Rev. Marita Harrell, 57, here in metro Atlanta, while doing’s God work, was allegedly stabbed and burned to death by a recently released prisoner Christopher Griggs. She was actually ministering to him at the time, according to various reports. Harrell, who was the senior pastor of Connections at Metropolitan UMC, leaves behind a husband and two daughters…

According to 11Alive, her husband of 27 years told her to “‘not to meet anymore people who have just been released from jail for safety reasons.’ The report goes on to state a friend had also warned her about such meetings, but Harrell said she wanted ‘to help people who have been in jail.'” And through her cell phone, her husband tracked her location when he determined she was missing. He was the one who found her after she had murdered…

Read the details of this tragedy below…

 A man accused of stabbing and burning an Atlanta pastor to death earlier this week answered to a judge Saturday.

Christopher Griggs will continue to be held in the DeKalb County Jail without bond, as determined by the judge.

During Grigg’s first appearance, which was done virtually, the judge said she did not have the authority to grant him bond. She ended his appearance by saying a bond hearing will be scheduled in the coming weeks.

I want to say some harsh things about this menace to society, but all I will only say this: may God mete out his judgment…
