She had had recently become a columnist for Mother & Baby magazine. Below is what she revealed:
“I lived a life of wanton wanderlust. With fun loving friends from Los Angeles to London, I was lost in a haze of youth and no responsibilities.
“Other than work there was nothing stopping me from having constant fun. But it was becoming boring, I wanted an anchor – I craved it. And when I had two wailing, smiling, joyful little blobs of waddling pink flesh they became my entire existence and saved me from one of pure apathy.”

African Migrants to Spain
Morocan and Spanish police foiled a fresh attempt on Thursday by at least 100 African migrants to scale border fences and enter the Spanish enclave of Melilla. It was reported that, at least 25 migrants, many with bloody bare feet, clung to the tops of fences for nearly 7 hours.
After hours of standoff, authorities coaxed most of the immigrants down from the fence, gave them water and turned them over to Moroccan police.
Oh dear!! African leaders should be blamed for their lack of empathy towards their citizens and corruption. If they atleast use some of the funds they steal and launder abroad to pay as benefits to their citizens, this type of shameful images won’t appear to the world. The other time I watched a video of so many Nigerians who died in Sahara desert in a bid to elope for greener pastures abroad. They sure didn’t know the intensity of the sun in the Sahara and how far they would go. Unfortunately, they were roasted by the heat of the sun and their bodies littered everywhere.
So many people are not aware of the dangers trying to illegally enter a country and they just end up dying. Meanwhile, see more pictures of the African Migrants below and the video of migrants who died after 14 days journey in the Sahara desert.
It is no longer news that the members of the Boko Haram insurgents are being sponsored by top people in Nigeria. They have also infiltrated the Government so deeply that it is affecting the operation to stop the group from carrying out their monstrous killings. During the jail break attempt, it was learnt that a cell phone rang from a dead Boko Haram member’s pocket, how on earth will that improve security?
However, the DSS(Department of State Service) refused to release the mobile phone. Do we suspect fowl play here? I think they should reshuffle our security services and make sure that people of thesame ethnic origin don’t work together. Will a Northern man give order for a Northerner to be killed? Or will an Eastern man do thesame? You guys in Government will need your common sense!!!
An eyewitness said that, during the gunfight they heard a mobile phone ringing. On closer examination we discovered that the ringing tone was from the pocket of one of the neutralized insurgents.”
