Outside has been canceled until further notice and we are still stuck in the house—in the house stuck. Although many states have eased up on stay-at-home restrictions, it's safe to say that all d*ck appointments are on hold and we hate to see it.

Living this single, quarantined life isn't for the faint of heart but our good sis Tracee Ellis Ross has some advice that will remind you that good love is worth the wait. In a recent chat with Oprah, the High Note actress explained that while right now may not be an ideal time to date, it may be the perfect time to make an emotional connection of your dreams. She told Auntie O:

"I'm single and so I feel like it's about being purposeful in how I create my connection and particularly during this time, it's making sure that I am honoring the needs that I have and the connection that I have in different ways."

Tracee shared that because the pandemic has been taxing on the relationships in her life, she has had the opportunity to organically eliminate connections that no longer serve her:

"There's a very specific kind of person you want to connect with right now. Certain relationships have not kind of held up in this time and I've been very purposeful about what feels good."

"Guys need attention. They need that nourishment, that little stroke of the ego that gets them by every now and then. I'll give it to my family, I'll give it to my work – but I will not give it to a man right now."

Halle Berry

"I no longer feel the need for a relationship so I don't feel the need to rush or accept something that's not totally right for me. Not that anything's wrong with the people I've been with but I'm going to wait for my match or I will stay solo and be with my kids and do my life the way I'm doing it."

Yvonne Orji

"I just have to say, the reason why I am so good and so happy is because I know how God works. I have seen God's MO so many times, that like in the way that you can be like, 'Aw man, but I thought this was it! I thought this was the one!' God be like, 'Oh that's what you thought? I got the goods for you.'"

EXCLUSIVE: Keke Palmer Launches 'Heaux & Tell' On KeyTV

Recently, we heard that Keke "Keep a Job" Palmer launched her digital network KeyTV. Today, xoNecole has the exclusive first look at the first series on KeyTV, Heaux & Tell.

Written and created by Nakia Stephens and executive produced and developed by Keke, "Heaux and Tell follows the misadventures of three best friends who dive headfirst into provocative and ridiculous new experiences. A 7-episode scripted show featuring a BIPOC cast of talent and behind-the-scenes creators who helped bring it to life, the series offers this generation a real take on sex, sexuality, and sisterhood."


"KeyTV is about bringing new perspectives to the table and platforming creators who have something to say," Keke tells xoNecole of why she chose Heaux & Tell. "Overall, I want the network to deliver content that is relatable to our generation with characters you feel like you know, and Heaux & Tell, our first scripted series, delivers on that and more. The series takes the audience on a wild & seriously unexpected ride through the eyes of three Black women and best friends who don't always have it together in their relationships, at work, or even with each other but are doing the best they can. It's a show that I'd watch with my friends because it's about real characters dealing with their problems, their wins, and their lovers in real-time – and having some real good messy fun along the way."
