buzzz worthy. . .

Bishop Corletta Vaughn, star of "Preachers of Detroit" discusses the "fear" have having women in church leadership.  Like homosexuality, she says, women in church leadership. there must be dialogue.  A Bishop of 20 years, Vaughn admits she is often snubbed by men who can not get used to her role, but she isn't going anywhere. Watch her interview below. Vaughn has also penned a book, "Teach Your Daughters to Fly," focusing  on the story of "Fly Away Home" and how it parallels the idea of having a healthy father-daughter relationship.

Dr. Corletta Vaughn is a Christian counselor as well as a Senior Pastor and has been a trailblazer for women in ministry for more than 35 years. A Bishop in the West African country of Nigeria, she has spent many years spreading the Gospel and working with women in various capacities to empower them to live full and productive Christian lives. Her new book, Teach Your Daughters To Fly, will be released by Next Century Publishing in early 2015.

As seen on the web at http://www.gotellit.org, Dr. Vaughn has spent several years counseling women and men and often hears the same types of stories repeated. She began to wonder about how a person's relationship with his or her father might cause the types of pain and struggle that she saw so frequently. Dr. Vaughn concluded that many adults struggle because fathering was not appropriate in their cases.

After seeing “Fly Away Home,” she realized that the story of Amy being reunited with her father and adopting geese paralleled the discoveries she had made. Coining the term "Father-Hunger," Dr. Vaughn teaches how the right fathering skills can build strong women. “This book is disruptive and in your face truth about what happens to women who have had little to no relationship with their Dad," says Dr. Vaughan.

Dr. Vaughn's new book will bring the story line of "Fly Away Home" together with her real-life experiences drawn from her years as a counselor. With her love for others and her desire to support them as they overcome life's obstacles, Dr. Vaughn's book serves as a reminder that strong fathers ultimately create strong women.

Tween girl group heads to Trumbull, CT on March 29 to stamp out bullying with new single, "Stand Up"

 By Mona Austin

Bullying has gotten out of hand and this weekend a group of brave Tweens will declare they are not going to take it anymore.

On March 29, The Hype Girlz will perform their anti-bulling anthem, "Stand Up" in Trumbull, CT  at the Halftime Runway Show as a special perk to participants.

Everyone has heard of the Spice Girls and it is just a matter of time before their younger counterparts from the U.S., The Hype Girlz are a household name too,  their manager Kelly Silver believes.

Based in the NYC area, The Hype Girlz are a diverse singing group made up of five in-demand child actresses and models who were formed with a purpose. The Hype Girlz promote courage and self-confidence and empower girls to strive to make a difference in the world. by taking a stance against bullying.  

“We expect them to be the next mini Spice Girls," said Silver, a celebrity-DJ and former singer from England who manages the group, "but the thing that is exciting is their anti-bullying platform. One of the members was badly bullied."

Before a recent performance they were announced by their very own emcee, a 13-year-old “Fashionable Frankie,” a NY actress and model who held back tears as she pledged to end bullying. Frankie was recently a victim of cyber bullying.

These stars-in-the making are focused on continuing outreach to their peers.

Research indicates there has been a surge in bullying, personal attacks via social media and school violence.  Tragically, murders and suicides have also increased as  result of bullying, which is the most common form of violence among youth.  An estimated 3.2 million American kids will be bullied this year according to National Association of School Psychology and although it may start in childhood bullying has the potential to sprout into adulthood.  Proving bullies come in all shapes, sizes, colors and ages, Tamar Braxton, a co-host on "The Real" wiped away tears as she shared how she has been repeatedly bullied online on a recent episode of the show.  

That message is apparently being embraced as it spread rapidly to others around the country.  In just one week, the video for  "Stand Up" jumped from 7,500 views on Youtube to over 20,000 to date.

The Hype Girlz performance is a part of the ticket for participants or spectators at the Halftime Runway Show, a modeling event sponsored by sports apparel brand, Outerstuff.  Models from the ages of 1-25 are accepted.  Their stop in Trumbull is the final destination on the tour and all participants receive hair and make up, photos and an outfit included in the experience. The event will be held at the Trumbull Marriott Hotel (located at 180 Hawley Lane; Trumbull, CT 06611) from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Male and female models are welcome.  To purchase tickets or sign up click here.
