Even though Eva chatted about her experience and win on America’s Next Top Model, I was kinda hoping that she would shed some insight on the reason behind her calling off her engagement to actor & cutie Lance GrossI mean the people wanna know what happened to the cute couple?!?!?

I heart & adore Korto for the simple reason that she is super talented, so African and very relatable! I think those are some of the reasons why she has been one of the most popular designers of Project Runway and really why she is one of the most exciting up & coming designers!

Peep the entire show:

Kudo’s to Korto for an amazing fashion showing on the Mo’Nique show! You can also get her handbags and jewelry at Dillards department nationwide!!!

Have to say that Eva‘s shoe game on the Mo’Nique show was on point! She rocked a pair of Versace Polka Dot Platform heels from the Spring 2010 line…

Meanwhile in Chicago, Oprah had Mo’Nique’s brother Gerald Imes and parents, Mr. & Mrs. Imes (along with their other son Steven) on her show. Gerald admitted to sexually molesting Mo’Nique when she was just 7-years old.

* Mo’Nique did not want to be a part of her brother’s interview, but she gave Oprah her blessing...

Gerald said on the show:

“I’m here today to first acknowledge that I’ve been in denial for 37 years. … I did assault and inappropriately touch my sister in manners that were uncomfortable for her…And for that, I apologize and I’m humbly sorry that those actions had taken place.”

“The drugs weren’t an excuse. They just allowed me and afforded me the opportunity to do the things that were in the back of my mind as a kid that I always wanted to do…Most of the time, the abuse that I did with my sister took place while she was asleep [or] the appearance that she was asleep.

“I hid my own molestation and pain and guilt and shame, because I thought it was my fault that these things happened to me…So I internalized that, and I hid behind the drugs and alcohol and then that spiraling thing in my mind, as a child, I wanted to express my sexuality, so I took it out on my sister.”

“The hardest part for me was even to admit to her I did something wrong…I downplayed it by saying, ‘If you think I did it … .’ There’s no more ‘if you think’ — I did it. I did it. I’m not proud of it. Mo’Nique, I’m sorry. I can only hope that by coming forth today that somewhere along the line with the apology that, yes, hopefully somewhere, somehow as siblings we can come back together.

“I’m doing this to apologize to my sister, to hopefully bring back some family unity…I’m doing this to publicly acknowledge. Now let’s bring our family back together.”

Gerald, who was sentenced to 12 years in prison for molesting another person, said he also apologized to the other victim. As for Mo’Nique publicly addressing the abuse, he said, “I’m proud that she was able to finally get to a place that she could relinquish her pain. When she made the comment that I was the individual contributing to her role, I had to look at her and say, ‘I really understand her pain.’ ”

Wow! My heart & prayers go out to Mo’Nique and her family as they go through their healing and restoration! Please leave your comments below…

Muah & ♥ ya for it!
