Living With “Rheumatoid Arthritis” is pure hell!! #FindACure

Arthritis affects 52.5 million US adults, more than 1 of 5. It is a leading cause of disability in the United States and one of the most common chronic conditions in the nation. Arthritis is a common cause of chronic pain.  

Rheumatoid Arthritis: Also called: RA
A chronic inflammatory disorder affecting many joints, including those in the hands and feet.
What is a Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which your body’s immune system – which protects your health by attacking foreign substances like bacteria and viruses – mistakenly attacks your joints. The abnormal immune response causes inflammation that can damage joints and organs, such as the heart.

I was first diagnosed with Child Rheumatism “Arthritis”also called Juvenile Arthritis “In the legs” when I was 9 years old I remembered this just like it was yesterday my doctor treated me for 6 months then my Arthritis went away just like it came.

After 30 something years go by the Arthritis came back with a vengeance I now have it in my hands, fingers, wrist, knees, arms, elbows, neck, ankles and jaw I had symptoms first for about 5 months before the arthritis really hit. It was really hard trying to find the right medication for my RA. I went to an Acupuncture doctor for my allergies and that really helped me, how ever the acupuncture didn’t help with my RA so I started treating my RA with herbal remedies and eating more healthy along with juicing.

Having Rheumatoid Arthritis is a daily struggle you have good days and you have bad days, it also depends on what you eat if I eat the wrong food such as white rice or tomatoes even lots of cheese and so on, I’ll have flare ups and when that happens I can barley walk use my arms or hands. So I have to make sure I eat right more fish and veggies and juicing, my hand are trying to deform I’m always trying to bend them straight my knees hurt really bad the right one more than the left I limp at times. I’m a martial artist and I love kickboxing and running I’m unable to do that right now 😦 I have to do every thing much slower “I Want My Life Back”

I changed Rheumatologist so I hope to see more improvements soon, but I went to a hand and knee specialist, so next month I’ll be having hand surgery on both of my hands and my knee is swollen so I’m going to Physical Therapy now for my knee hopefully I won’t have to have knee surgery.

This is why I haven’t been blogging  that much because I’m in pain 😦  after the surgeries hopefully I’ll be like brand new again and I’ll start back blogging or Vlogging..

Rheumatoid Arthritis has really changed my life everyday it’s a struggle I hope they find a cure soon.

In this picture of me below is my hand braces, knee braces and finger splints they look like rings and there also called ring splints the help keep the finger joints from deforming they also support my fingers when they hurt!

My YouTube video below shows some of the hand splits that my hand therapist made for me to re-leave the pain in my fingers, wrist, hand an arm for night time use if I need it!

My struggle with Rheumatoid Arthritis! Video


I pray that a cure will be found for Rheumatoid Arthritis soon! 
Rheumatoid Arhritis is often thought to be a condition related to old age, but this isn’t always the case. According to the Arthritis Foundation, the average onset of RA is between the ages of 30 and 60, and children can also get it. 
Almost 300,000 children in the United States have some form of arthritis or rheumatic disease (a disease that affects the muscles and joints). The most common form of arthritis that affects children is juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). If your child has stiffness, swelling, and pain in his joints, talk with his doctor about the possibility of arthritis.

In 1999, the Phoenix Suns drafted Marion, who was the ninth overall pick and would remain with the Suns until midway through the 2007-08, season. The Suns traded Marion to the Miami Heat, who then traded Marion to the Toronto Raptors for the 2008-09 season. Marion was traded again and joined the Mavericks in 2009 and was the team’s starting small forward when the Mavericks won the NBA championship in June 2011.

Meagan Good Nabs Lead In “Foxy Brown” Reboot “TV Series”

Celebrity News By Latrice Butts @

Meagan Good just landed a new gig as the new “Foxy Brown” and her husband DeVon Franklin is executive producing it.

Actress Meagan Good just landed the lead role in a “Foxy Brown” reboot based on the 1974 cult classic film that originally starred Pam Grier. Meagan’s husband DeVon Franklin and Tony Krantz will executive produce the new series. Oh, and Meagan, who most recently starred in FOX’s “Minority Report,” will also help produce the new series.

Empire co-executive producer Malcolm Spellman and Hand of God creator Ben Watkins will pen the script for the television series. MGM was behind the 1974 film and still owns the rights, so they’re in the mix as well.

The reboot has landed at Hulu for development and the 35-year-old actress will play the iconic role of Foxy Brown.

In the film, Foxy kicks a** as she seeks revenge on a drug gang who was responsible for the death of her boyfriend, an undercover government agent. The iconic character is responsible for influencing Beyonce’s character Foxy Cleopatra in Austin Powers Goldmember, the Undercover Brother comedy flick and more.

Kanye West is ‘profoundly depressed and paranoid’ as he recovers from breakdown in hospital!

Celebrity News By Latrice Butts @

According to TMZ:  

Kanye West has been in desperate shape this week … paranoid and profoundly depressed, and he’s been dealing with these issues for a long time… Sources close to Kim and Kanye tell TMZ.

We’re told after Kanye was taken to the hospital Monday he was convinced people were out to get him, including the doctors who were caring for him. Our sources say for a time he wouldn’t even let the doctors touch him.

Our sources say the paranoia has been building for months … obviously going way beyond the stated reasons for the hospitalization … dehydration and exhaustion.

We’re told the goal is getting him home Monday and under the care of his personal doctor, but it’s too early to know if that will happen.


Update! Kanye West’s health issues feared to be more serious than sleep deprivation and dehydration

Celebrity News By Latrice Butts @

According to TMZ:  

Kanye West is in a bad mental state … and sources familiar with the situation tell us his hospitalization is far from over.

Sources say as of Wednesday morning it appeared he would stay at UCLA Medical Center until at least week’s end. We’re told some members of Kanye’s family wanted him home for Thanksgiving and felt it would do him good, but as of yesterday that looked improbable.

TMZ broke the story … Kanye’s doctor told cops he was suffering from a temporary psychosis brought on by sleep deprivation and extreme dehydration, but we’re told the problems go much deeper.

A well-connected Kanye source tells us Kanye’s psychological problems are significant enough so that his insurance policy — which covers lost profits and financial obligations for cancelled concerts due to illness — will almost certainly cover the losses for the 21 concerts he’s cancelled. 



Kanye West’s Nervous Breakdown! Authorities spent 2 hours persuading Kanye West to be hospitalized, sources say.

Celebrity News By Latrice Butts @

Wow! After seeing Kanye West handcuffed to the hospital bed and laying there helpless it really makes you feel sorry for him. “Pray For Kanye”

Did Kanye West suffer from a psychiatric emergency? That’s what one report is claiming, after the rapper was hospitalized following alleged erratic behavior. While Access Hollywood has not confirmed allegations about Kanye’s mental state, Kris Jenner did say at the Angel Ball in New York City that her son-in-law is exhausted.

Me and Tak Sakaguchi hung out in the VIP Room for the after Party Event, after the screening of his film Be A Man! Samurai School. Some of Tak Sakaguchi other films are Versus,Death Trance,Azumi,Azumi 2,and many others. We became friends!!

Tak Sakaguchi is a Japanese Actor, Director, Fight Choreographer, and Stuntman. He is best known for his role in Ryuhei Kitamura’s cult film, Versus and more…..

So I guess on this wonderful Asian site instead of listing me as an Actress they listed me as a Singer..



Tak Sakaguchi was drinking one of Japan’s beer called Sapporo..

The picture below is of my friend Tak Sakaguchi movie poster for “Be A Man! Samurai School” This is a Japanese film. This film was written, directed and starred “Tak Sakaguchi” This was the first film he has ever directed.




However I’m very flattered to even be listed as a singer in Japan.


If you read my biography everyone knows I’m a huge fan of Asian Martial Arts, not only that I’m a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do I also studied Northern Style Shaolin.. And my favorite Martial Artist are Bruce Lee, Donnie Yen and Jet Li.. I could name many more but these are my top 3.

Angelina Jolie Reportedly Hires Real Life Olivia Pope To Handle Brad Pitt Divorce!

Celebrity News By: Latrice Butts @

According to People magazine, Jolie has reportedly hired crisis manager Judy Smith, who inspired actress Kerry Washington’s character Olivia on ABC’s “Scandal,” to put her spinning skills to the test and help Jolie exit her marriage unscathed.

“Judy has been asked to consult with those working with Angelina on divorce negotiations,” a source told People. “Judy and her firm have a long history of handling issues that have unfortunately garnered too much attention in the public eye, and she knows how to push towards resolutions that are swift and discreet.”

Smith, who began her career as deputy press secretary under former President George H. W. Bush, has “handled” a fair share of major scandals over the years at her firm Smith & Company, including rehabilitating Monica Lewinsky’s image, smoothing over Paula Deen’s racist slurs and advising Michael Vick post–dog fighting.

She also acts as the co-executive producer on “Scandal” and lends her technical expertise when needed.

But Brangelina could be her toughest case to date, considering the high-profile nature of the split and how things for the couple continue to go from bad to worse.

After news broke earlier this month, Jolie requested sole physical custody of the couple’s six children. We later learned that Pitt was reportedly being investigated for child abuse after an incident on their private plane, but is now fully cooperating with the Department of Child and Family Services to put the issue to rest. 

Smith will be the latest addition to Team Jolie, which boasts the talented celebrity divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, while Pitt has retained the services of family law attorney Lance Spiegel. Negotiations between the two are reportedly underway, and if our guesstimates are correct, this could be over within the week.

It’s been handled.
