Mad shout-out for all of you who have helped and who continue to assist Haiti!

I was relieved to hear that my friend Sekuru Bob‘s family in Haiti is ok. Keeping my friend Dell Isidor in Canada in my thoughts & prayers, he has family in Haiti. Fashion Expose, founded by Haitian couture designer, Prajje Jean-Baptiste is reaching out to help those in Haiti that are suffering from the recent tragedy through EDE Haiti. For more on EDE Haiti join their FaceBook Fanpage to find out more information on how you can help!

So Wyclef Jean‘s non profit organization, Yele Haiti has had some negative pub recently regarding the organization’s finances. Wyclef responded to The Smoking Gun’s “funny money” accusations against his organization. Apparently Yele Haiti has already raised more than $2 million to help earthquake victims, since the 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Haiti this past Tuesday. Peep Wyclef’s video response below…

The U.S First Lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama’s did an PSA for the Red Cross for Haiti. Check it below…

Talking about the First Lady, the Obama’s gave People magazine their first interview of 2010…

According to, here are snippets of the interview…

As a woman under 50, would she [Mrs Obama] stop getting annual mammograms in light of the controversial new guidelines on breast cancer? She replied:

I do [get annual mammograms], and I’m not going to change. I tend to err on the side of caution in every aspect of my health. The broader message to women is that we have to own our health. Listen to advice, but ultimately we’ve got to take care of ourselves.

Can Tiger Woods be rehabilitated? President Obama says:

Absolutely. I don’t want to comment on his personal relationship with his wife and family, but I’m a strong believer that anybody can look within themselves, find their flaws and fix them. I’m sure he feels terrible about what happened, and I suspect that he will try to put his life back together again.

Asked if she’s unnerved by the security breach at the White House State Dinner First Lady Michelle Obama said:

The state dinner was an outstanding success. It’s just the follow-up after it. I look at the reporting on the state dinner and go, ‘Is that all that happened? Really. Because I sat in a phenomenal dinner where the prime minister and his wife were, felt, so connected to the United States and they were so proud to be there. And the evening was so wonderful and it was so well orchestrated,” she said. ‘For me the other stuff that everyone is talking about is a footnote to what the state dinner actually was. So I wouldn’t do that over.

As for Senator Harry Reid‘s comments about candidate President Obama having a good shot at the presidency because he’s a “light-skinned” African American who had “no Negro dialect,” First Lady Michelle Obama refused to add to the controversy, saying:

Harry Reid had no need to apologize to me. Because I know Harry Reid. I measure people more so on what they do, rather than the things that they say.
