The November issue of Essence features a shocking story about Apryl Michelle Brown, a woman who lost her limbs all because she wanted a bigger behind.

Week 10.08.12 – The show “Inside Edition” is known for bringing odd stories to the public’s attention and the one that turned my head this week was about a woman so desperate for a big bottom that she got illegal butt injections that cost her the use of her limbs (The full story can be found in the November issue of Essence.) Read about her in the “Life in General” section.  Advertising veteran Tom Burrell gives an interesting interview to The Root about the way this season’s Black characters are portrayed on television. Find it in the “Entertainment” section.  Also in “Entertainment” is a photo Oprah sent out to the world from the set of her latest movie. It’s slightly dated, but I still wanted to share it.

I found the following headlines to be interesting too.
