Lamar Odom’s Ex & Kids Mother Liza Morales Chats About “Cookies & Kardashians”


Two weeks ago, I sat down with NBA player Lamar Odom’s ex-girlfriend/kid mother, Liza Morales at the Inc Lounge at The Time Hotel for the NYC premiere screening of the reality show, Starters Wives Confidential which airs tonight Tuesday (February 5th) on TLC. Liza Morales and Lamar Odom have three children together. While grieving the death of their youngest and silently watching the whirlwind romance of her ex play out in the tabloids, Liza is stepping out of the shadows and finding her voice.

How have you been since breaking up with your ex-boyfriend and kids father Lamar Odom?

I’ve learned a lot from Lamar, we grew up together in a sense. I learned a lot of life lessons and I don’t regret it.  I am better now. I’m still young; I am only 33-year-old and I’ve learned a lot and now I can pass it forward and share my story with those girls.

I heard that Lamar is the only man who you been with in your entire life, is there’s any truth to that?

Lamar is the only man I’ve ever been with. I know the worth of my cookies.

How is your relationship with Lamar now?

I feel like it can always be better. I try my best to be cordial, it’s a constant job and it is very important and deep down he does too.

On the first episode, you mentioned that it was kind of hard for you to walk pass newsstands and see Lamar on the tabloids with Khloe Kardashian, why was that so hard for you in beginning?

In the beginning it was hard, because this was my ex whom I’ve known for 15 years when he got married, so it was hard. Prior to him marrying Khloe, he was never on a tabloid. He was on SLAM or Sport Illustrated, so it was different for me in the beginning but now I am kind of used to it. If I’m in the nail salon and the girl to my right and the girl to my left are reading a tabloid with the Kardashian’s on it, I will definitely go for Elle Magazine, Vibe or the non-tabloid. I don’t really want to know.

What is your relationship like with Khloe?

We don’t really have one, but we are cordial. I met her and I thought that it was very important for us to meet because she is going to be around my kids. I have no problems and as long as my kids are treated well, I’m good with her.

What can we expect from you this season on Starters Wives Confidential?

I’m just being me, I am not an actress. I’m just being myself; I don’t know [laugh]. Y’all have to watch the show.

Atlanta’s multi platinum-selling rapper and actor T.I. finally grabs his first solo Source Magazine cover. The Hustle Gang CEO covers the Hip-Hop publication’s latest issue which is now available on newsstands nationwide. Dressed in a denim jacket, T.I. puts on his game face for the cover. Below are some excerpts:

On the heels of the release of his eighth studio album Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, T.I. sits down with the Source for an exclusive and in-depth interview where the ATL-bred rapper talks in detail about his career, his family, and life after…

“Everybody’s gonna have their ups and downs. Just because I’m a celebrity, that doesn’t mean that I’m exempt from humanlike faults.”

T.I. who also snatched up a role in the upcoming comedy Identity Thief (which hits theaters on Feb. 8th) talks candidly about his future in Hollywood and how he’s diversifying his acting roles. “It’s my first comedy so I’m looking forward to seeing that. I just want to keep my tools sharp…. Different people see T.I. in different ways. As long as they ain’t giving me a rapper. That’s what I don’t want to do. Anything else, I’d pretty much be open minded within reason of course.”

A$AP Rocky Speaks On Tyler The Creator Diss, His Next Single, Dating Teyana Taylor, Touring With Rihanna & Fashion


RCA Records rapper A$AP Rocky is enjoying his success! He released his debut album, entitled Long.Live.A$AP which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. He also took the Hip-Hop fashion movement to another level and now he is gearing up to embark on a world tour with Rihanna this Spring 2013. Jay-Z’s Life & Times  caught up with the Harlem native for an exclusive interview. He talked about Tyler the Creator diss, his next single, dating Teyana Taylor, touring with Rihanna, fashion and more. Below are some highlights:

When the single “Fuckin’ Problems” was released, Tyler, The Creator took to Twitter and said “So funny when someone releases a new song with the same four people that we expected to be on it with the same shitty “Trap” beat Hahaha.” What did you think of that?

He has his opinions and he’s entitled to them, so it’s whatever. Hell no, I’m not tripping over what Tyler, The Creator said. I’m Jiggy.

Have you decided on the next single yet?

Yeah, maybe “Wild For The Night” with Skrillex. I wanna do something with that. Maybe “Fashion Killa.”

On collaborating with fellow Harlem artists like Teyana Taylor and Azealia Banks. 

I used to date Teyana. She’s my ex. And A$AP AV used to date Azealia. But yeah I don’t know because I think people expect that. People expect us to work together and I want to do the unexpected. There’s 16 tracks on the album, eight are solo and eight are features. But they’re organic. It fits for me. That’s the only reason why I did them. I didn’t want to do something that made it feel like I was forcing it. I didn’t want to compromise or settle, I just wanted everything to be organic. That’s why I worked with the people I respected creatively. I want to collaborate with Jessie Ware. That’s going to happen. Also MGMT. I’d love to work with Adele.

You’re touring with Rihanna later this year, any special plans for that?

To have fun. I forgot about that one! I’m actually excited about it. Like that’s going to be some rockstar shit, don’t you think? I just want to do my A$AP Rocky thing and go there and have some fuckin’ fun!

Are you always looking for the next big thing in fashion?

Yeah. I mean I brought back the Air Force Ones with the straps. Now you see them on runways and in magazines. It’s funny. People like Dior, now have girls in Dior tops and Air Force Ones on their feet. That shit’s crazy. I wouldn’t want to do my own clothing line, but I’d like to collaborate with some designers. That would be dope. I have a lot of ideas.

What’s the plan next in regards to the rest of the A$AP Mob?

Well, A$AP Ferg is up next. You’ll be seeing a lot from him next.
